My friends don't like F2P games because of the grind to have power and flexibility. What if there was paid entry option for 60$ upfront to have everything up to and including T4 unlocked?
I realize in the distant past this company looked at wargaming and dollar signs shot out of their eyes so they cloned their F2P model and scrapped the previous progression. Maybe there's an option to combine the P2P and F2P models?
Personally I've come back after a long while and hopped back in base t3 ships, the grind is tolerable as I focus on improving my gameplay and I have a relatively high tolerance for grind. My friends just pass on the game because in most modes someone else has straight up bigger numbers because they've been playing for longer, yet don't blink at tossing 60$ to access the full game (insert recent multiplayer shooters here). I picked T4 as my example because that's maxing out veteran, which could qualify as a full game with legendary as the optional extra.
