A new player can get thousands of gold from gold ads, while paying customers get nothing. (most forumers know that)


But does WG expect everyone to have gold from ads and keep the prices high because of that? Could getting rid of gold ads lower the prices, or should the gold ads be made available for everyone?


I want to hear some opinions.

My alt account has gold ads.

You can only make 50gold a day.

5x 10gold per ad.


8k gold for a tier8 premium would take you 160 days of constantly logging in and watching all 5 ads.

No more broken then tier8 tank events.


Prices are bumped up from Apple/playstore/etc adding 30% to the price for their share.

You won't get thousands of gold. A few garage slots or free XP, thats all. And it's not free, you pay with your time and WG gets ad fees.

It's balanced, as is. Prices are high (even without Apples cut) as people pay these prices.

As romsitsa says, it’s simple economics, WG charge what the market will pay, and there seem to be plenty out there willing to spend 100’s or thousands a year.  I’ve spent a fair bit, close to 900 quid in my time in the game so around £50 a month on average which I treat like going to the pub/pictures/meals out, ie I don’t own anything at the end of it but it’s fun and I can afford it so what the hell...

I dread to think how bad my stats would be without some of my premiums, although even with being a gold noob wallet warrior they are still terrible and I don’t get any Rigging Protection™️ ;)

Ads for everyone!


I just don't understand why they have to stop ads for those who buy anything from store. Makes no sense. But it makes us pssed for losing that gold income!
