Not sure how I feel about all of this. If they are going with the WoT model then I probably won't be sticking around after beta ends. I don't have that kind of time to invest into a game.
If Dreadnought Tier1 -> Tier5 takes approximately the same time as it takes for World of Tanks Tier1 -> Tier6, i think everything is going to work out fine for both Devs and Players
I really don't understand the repair cost gimmick though.. doesn't make any sense to me at any level.
