Then simply direct my reply to anyone who paid real life money for World of Tanks instead of downloading it free.

Fair enough

It doesn't really seem worth it to pay when you can get it free, huh?

MasterTanker is on the path to success [1-99]
I created this account to try to balance out this thread a bit.

I'm an avid gamer, the only reason I bought ACG is for the WOT promo. Why pay for a free game?

WOT is actually a premium/free-to-play massive multiplayer online (MMO) game that's developped in Russia by War Gaming who have millions of users and revenues of over $10 million/month.

While 95% of the game is free, gold (which you buy with real $) is required to be competitive in the higher tier matchs. Gold also speeds up your progress in the game by allowing the reallocation of experience points which are otherwise locked to a given tank, allowing you access to the bigger tanks sooner. Furthermore, gold allows you to buy premium time which increases credit and experience earning by 50%, as well as premium tanks which have higher credit and experience earning coefficients.

So paying speeds up your game progress and the WOT ACG promo is a very cost effective offer. Gold offers other advantages as well, and WOT features tournaments with gold as the prize.

WOT is a "simulation game" and is very historically accurate and has made quite a tank nerd out of me. The game play also reflects this so anyone not familiar with the game mechanics will die pretty fast.

The fun in this game is the coordination of historically accurate tanks, executing tactics together and defeating a well trained enemy over a variety of maps and levels of competitivness.

Helpful WOT Links:

Basic Tactics:

Tech Tree Reference:
wotdb(dot)info

Official Forums:
forum(dot)worldoftanks(dot)com

(p.s. i can't link yet so change (dot) to . )

I'd be glad to offer any assistance to anyone interested in the game.
