    So What happens to the middleware now? Will it get better or will these guys horde it for their games only?...

    Its a good thing on the standpoint that Wargaming doesnt have to ask for stuff to be made on the engine now. they can just Do as they please..

     

    But i doubt they would not continue selling its licences , more money in your pockets, why say no

    Hmmm...

    Looks like Wargaming.net's "F2P" game makes enough money for them to be able to buy other studios ?

    Who'd have thought people would spend so much cash on "cosmetic" upgrades for their tanks ? :D

    I'm guilty.  I have 3 main tanks that I use, all of them are camoed and I've spent gold on converting exp/money when it was needed.  All together maybe spent ~$50-60, which I'm totally fine with paying for a F2P game since thats what most games cost today anyways.
