It all depends on the price.  For $1-5 I'd probably buy it, and I think a lot of players would, but in these uncertain times I'm certainly hesistant to spend more than that.  

 

There's no point in being unhappy about it, these "season passes" are super common in mobile games.


 

If it burns when I pee, does that mean I wouldn't be a good fireman?

I buy my kids battle passes in fortnite every season if they earn them or have a birthday that month... As others have said, they are completely optional and do not affect the game play, just access to extra goodies if you put the work in.  If Blitz goes in this direction for revenue, I have no objection, I just hope this puts an end to some of the more outrageous ideas they are selling.

Part of me feels like this is a reboot of the "Folio" from the uprising event, minus the page unlocks and the event.  You get goodies with your skill versus your wallet this time around.  I may look into this if it is in a reasonable price range

Pretty fine with this as it seems smart from a business aspect from WG, considering every other MMO mobile operator runs this setup. The only thing I'm concerned about is that the giveaway, or earned, tanks could be absolute overpowered monsters. They should be good to quite good, of course, WG needs people to pay for the service! But keep them short of the WZ-FT or Smasher, please. PZ IVS, Dragon, M4 Rev, the AMX 30's are good examples per tier.

Will the improved pass be for money or gold?

I dont play fortnight, but so far this is sounding a lot like buying premium time for better daily mission rewards.
RNG doesn't bother hackers.

I hope the Improved Pass is for gold, cause I bought a whole bunch of gold over the weekend. I really want a Covenanter.

Ok, the Thunder is a collector KV-1S that is different than tech tree stats some how. Looks cool!

all those camos in the premium pass prolly worth admission, I’d do 10.00 American, well worth it to me. New camos and a shite load of um, I’m in.

What cons do you see in that? 

 

 

We have different system. You complete missions and progress through rewards chain. 

so very many things- let's solve these in order shall we?

QUESTION ONE! Why would WG give us back tanks they took away from us? (ill leave that one to you ribble)

QUESTION TWO! is it just me or have most of the tanks WG has released lately (missile tanks, Jap TDs, Caernarvon AX, yadda yadda yadda) been overcooked/blatantly OP? (ill leave that to both ribble and the community.)

QUESTION THREE! why would WG give us a bunch of currencies that we (likely) will never use again? maybe for a future event wink wink

 

Edit : sorry that was a bit confuzzling, ill sum it up for you

1. why would WG give us back the cov, which they removed from the tech tree in update 5.5?

2. rolling with what WG has been doing lately, "Thunder" is likely either gonna be overcooked or blatantly op. 

3. will the Ducks, Donuts and Jerry Cans be used at any point in the future?

depends on how good the premium pass really is... don't forget we have very few details, but it seems the "battle pass premium" does boost u about 5 tiers. I'm totally against more PFABCTW(Pay For A Better Chance To Win, duh), but hey whatever.

agreed, but knowing WG these are gonna be either slightly overcooked or BLATANTLY BROKEN

Is there going to be a battle royale mode next??

in certain aspects I would welcome that, it would be pretty cool. in others I utterly reject it (imagine a load of bots going into battle royale, getting murdered by one 60% uni in a broken tank.), I would prefer a gun game.

If you think some old tech tree tank moved to collector status is OP like some of the other recent tanks offered directly for sale, or gambling via crates ... :harp:

seems pretty straight forward to me, you play for free on the regular pass and get what’s in the columns, no tank to be had. Pay for the premium pass and you get more goodies. All you have to do is complete all the missions everyday. Really easy to do if your retired like myself and have all day to play. For those that are not into the grind of missions everyday, I’m sure there will be offers in the store for whatever trinket it is you get grinding missions. 
 

really don’t see how this is PFABCTW, boosters, coin, exp, camos, gold, that isn’t gonna make you a better player. People come into these games knowing that there are items to be purchased, they don’t improve your game play, and as far as over cooked OP tanks, there are plenty of tech tree tanks that are badass, you don’t need premium tanks to be effective in the game.

 

i can spend a bit, 10-20 here and there, but I do t go nuts and have to have everything, i don’t need tier8,9, or 10 tanks, I’m not there yet. Anyway, spending does not help you win, believe me, lol.
