Everyone complaining about the difficult progression and money losses on a loss, and then saying it is a bad business model. I disagree, as a long time WOT player I can tell you that without having a premium account (Elite) you would not progress past tier 7 and you would lose coin in tiers 9 and 10 on a loss and sometimes on a win.


How does talking about the other game support the argument? It speaks to the business model. WOT is one of the most successful games of all time. If the game design is solid and the game-play is engaging then it is the very business model you want to go with.


I am enjoying the game so I have spent money. When my small purchase 7 day elite status is up I will likely renew for 30 days and if they can keep me interested then I will continue to renew.


Talking about FTP is kind of pointless as no 'ftp' game truly is and if that's what you are looking for then you need to play some resurrected private server for EQ or some other, thought to be dead, game from the 90s.

Good thread. I was starting to piece this together in game but it's good to see it confirmed.

Just jumped in yesterday for the first time. Got all of 7 or 8 games in. I am terrible and I am enjoying the game anyway. Just spent my first bit of money on it this morning. Good job!



If you like the game it's well worth spending a bit of money to get elite status. A lot of problems with maintenance costs and grinding can be alleviated with elite status. Every 100k coins you earn elite status will get you an extra 50k. That's a lot of maintenance!



Do you mean there is a specific bonus per 100K or are you just describing the Elite bonus on all earnings? I did pay for Elite status as well. As a WOT player I understand FTP games are anything but, and you need to pay to get to higher tiers. I don't mind this, the devs need to make their coin. Always thought it was a great business model. I spend more on FTP than any purchased game.
