no i dont mean in game credits, i mean IRL hard earned cash.

 

i was taking a look through my spending records and was really shaken up by how much I've spent on gaming

over the past 2-3 years from part time jobs on the side, I've spent about 2.5k dollars on gaming, and out of that the majority went into FGO and WOWS. FGO being a costly and soul draining gacha addiction notwithstanding the amount of money that went into WOWS also was surprising. the majority of the money went into acquiring extra content like premium ships as well as doubloons for buying T10 camos so i can play T10 all the time, after that the rest of the money went into premium account, Christmas loot boxes and captain retraining

 

 

so I'm kinda curious, how much do you other forumers spend on a game that's supposedly "F2P" and what do you usually spulge on

 

 

edit. i made a typo, it's actually 2.5k USD

about $740 since Jan,2020 and about $800 last year. I pay the bill all from Steam account , really a long list.

well, not that much money to me, the fluctuation of my stock account will greater than that in just a minute.

If you pay, you get happiness, that's OK, we say you get the utility from you consume behavior

If not, then all you have spend become into sunk costs

If you are considering whether you should pay the next bill, we say you are measuring the  stickiness

Anyway, when I open my steam bill and wish list

I realize that , it is not the money you wasted, but the opportunity you miss the

Too much drakon... Just too much.

I believe I can buy a Lego UCS Super Star Destroyer with it.

For all you out there, the money I COULD have spent on PR if it was more reasonable went into a pair of combat lightsabers instead.

If I had to give a rough estimate I have probably spent about a thousand dollars in total in the years I have played WoWs.

Not too big a deal since I have a decent paying full-time job, but a thousand dollars spent on a single game is quite mind-boggling.

Most of money spent in WoWs went to Premium ships, Premium time and doubloons (usually used to buy more Premium ships).

Let's see...


Scharnhorst             = $0 (from SC)
Musashi                   = $0 (from Arsenal)
Warspite                  = $0 (from token exchange during UK DD event)
PEF                           = $0 (from Directive grind)
Hill                            = $0 (from Benham grind)
Texas                       = $0 (from US Independence Day mission chains)
T-61                          = $0 (from Anniversary 2019 event)
Lazo                         = $0 (from SC)
Huang He                = $0 (from Santa Container)
Gorizia                     = $0 (from Directive grind)
Perma Camos        = $0 (from various events)
Premium Account = $0 (from event tokens & compensations)
Doubloons              = $0
Lootboxes              = $0

 

TL;DR

I have no interests on challenging the RNG in this game. I spent my money on AL twice (about $90 in total), and Cities Skylines (eff the essential DLCs).

I reckon over $1000 on WoT.

Still have over 1.5 million Free XP in that game.

At least a few thousand on WoWs, and then the money spent on this....

To sum up: A heck of a lot.....

1. An Anshan for around RM50++ (kind of a waste as she isn't a great credit earner or captain trainer)

2. An Atago for RM180 (she's great, so I reckon its a money well spent)

3. Some weekend passes, I might spent around RM60 for this

4. A few Santa crates for around RM80 ++ (I should chopped off my finger for this wastage of money)

In total less than RM400, not a lot and I decide not to spend anymore since I am quite self-sufficient in game now

None in this game and no plans of ever doing so. My backlog of better things I would want just keeps growing anyways.

I was always into the space sets from the start so I didn't feel as much. Plus the fact that the space sets died off during a time when I couldn't afford them meant it didn't affect me much. The Star Wars came along. 

FYI, all interested. This is undergoing construction at Kuat Table Top (thanks to @Lowyat for naming). Currently at Phase 11/17(or 19). No doubloon boosters spent. @Tagnbagsays I need to finish it before the grind ends.

Just look through your card account from your bank for transactions to Wargaming.

Spent approximately $400 AUD in past 2 years. Been playing since late 2016... so extrapolating, probably $600 to $800.

And I see tomatofox has evolved into eggfox... not sure if that’s up or down the evolutionary ladder.

I looked this up on line, over $1000 AUD. Still worth it though, I’m sorely tempted.
