Crowd funders/Project backers.well, some of us have already sunk nearly a decade into Star Citizen
there are SC whales that have spent thousands on ships
and there isn't even a playable game yet
what does that make us?
Wow that's crazy I have played WOT since closed beta and other that a few premium tanks I have probably spent less than 300 bucks for all the years I have played . I can't play regularly but have over 35 tier X tanks with more than 45k battle's .Crazy. Guy I work with was into World of Tanks for over 10k, and some tower/castle game (game of war?) for another 10k
He said it was to speed up leveling.
Not just that, but paying over a full AAA to remove ... penalization for not paying more (over a AAA title)?Update on my friend - I witnessed them drop £70 on it in one go... I asked what was going on and they said it was just boosters to get through tricky bits and extra move credits as it had an artificial move limiter you either had to wait to replenish or pay to play.
I asked if that was the first time they'd paid over what a full AAA game costs on a mobile free to play game. Nope, they pay that much about twice a month.
I've spent more than I should have on WOT, but nowhere remotely near that. It's a fool's errand to think Tanks is truly PTW. Sure, you can go cash-buy a fabulous tier 8 premium, crew, or equipment, but if you don't understand armor/penetration mechanics, effective positioning, battle progression awareness, etc., you're just going to die. Spend as much as you want to get farmed, or learn the game. There are some games out there where cash purchases will make you super-OP, but tanks isn't one of them! Don't get me wrong, it helps... But if you suck, you suck expensively.Crazy. Guy I work with was into World of Tanks for over 10k... He said it was to speed up leveling.
