You really think the business model of almost all free to play games doesn't work?

Where did I say that? So, can you describe the business model here?

How does free stuff increase spending real money? Where's the logic in that?

 

Quite the opposite. Who needs to buy credits or premium time when everyone gets loads of both for free? Even gold has been given out enough.

 

Here. 

 

Current free stuff has minor value, for real "valuse" one has to pay hard cash.

For eg. you get some gold, but not enough to buy anything "worthful"-> buy more.

You get credits, not enough for new players, not valuable for longtime players.

You get a few premium tanks, if you are a collector -> buy more.

You get boosters, not enough if you really think these are useful, not valuable if you don't use them.

All the free sruff baits players, who are willing to spend, to spend hard cash. Majority of the players will never pay.

 

There are some quite good articles on F2P models, google them.

Ok, baiting, I get that. Only thing is... it does not work as well as before.

 

Before the update 3.8 spare parts fiasco WG was not flooding us as much with free stuff. Before it would have made (some) sense to buy premium time or credits. As for premium tanks, there is still some motive to buy, but less than before, because of the stupidly rare spare parts. And the only thing worth buying now, spare parts, they are not selling!

 

So, I can not see how is WG making more money post-3.8, which is when the flooding began (or was it after 3.9, anyway).

 

Before 3.8 I was thinking of spending a little money on this great game. But apart from making me mad, the spare parts fiasco and free stuff flooding removed any incentive for buying anything.

 

As you said, majority of players will never pay. Due to all the free stuff, I certainly believe that majority has gotten only bigger.

There was a massive drop in player base after 3.8 based on the data in the German forum. From that point numbers began to rise, but this could have been also caused by summer holidays, as numbers dropped again end of August.

 

Long time players are not the major target group, as they already made their purchases (if they were willing to spend), continous big spenders are a very small minority and only need "personal offers", like M60 was.

They focus on new players who have a chance to spend something in the future.

SP doesn't affect new players as much as long time ones, as they don't know how the previous system worked, so are not bothered wether SP is better or worse solution.
