game is awesome but without premium and after tier 7 tanks it is just pain to play because you geting nowhere without and that is making this game almoast p2p of course they do not force us to buy premium but without it you just want to leave game.

Lovely reward for those who change their password. Good in-game incentives should be more common in this industry.

Shitty game lost my private information.

I guess it's time to stop using the same password for everything.

300 gold is a miniscule amount, not even 5% of a low-level tank. Our accounts being hacked didn't work out so badly for Wargaming, they get some good will and might even get some people to cough up for their absurdly over-priced tanks.

Well, that beats 'AUTHENTICATOR!!!!' any time. Blizzard didn't even give us anything except blame us for not using an authenticator.

@dunkanlord I play WOT for two years now ( 6 970 matches ), without premium, and is not the the high cost of games tier 8,9 and 10, or the almost p2p format that bothers me, but, instead, is the unbelievable stupid teams of screen lickers that we are force to play with. That is what kills the game for me.

@AlexFili If you played it you'd know that's how they handle everything lol "we changed your tank so we gave you one free to make up for it" "it's our birthday have free stuff" "It's Thursday time for bonus codes"

Heck you get 500gold just for killing WG employees in game lol.

@St0Ne4Ge But hey, it goes a long way with other things, such as buying an extra garage slot. Do you think they would give you an absurd amount of what is basically real money for something as trivial as changing your password?

@gplayer5 WoT isn't one of them, but some of the best games out there are F2P. Also, karma is a bitch. Be sure to come back here when one of your 'important game' accounts gets hacked so we can laugh at you.

@RiP_ili I'd like to see a single good F2P game.

TF2 doesn't count because it used to be a paid game.

@RiP_ili dude, chillax. That was a sarcastic joke. One of my favorite games is League of Legends (F2P).... -_-

@CriticalCritic I wouldn't expect you to know of any. You don't understand PC gaming... start on that first.

@fatee  I fail to see how making light of peoples compromised accounts, by no fault of their own, is an opinion.

@gplayer5 @RiP_ili Oh, sarcasm? I see. Lemme try one...

League of Legends? Awesome game! Soooo important. Hope you don't get hacked.
