World of Warships Ps4 Pay for Play

Created 23/06/2019

Having played the WoW game since it was first released, I was surprised when the game threw up a "repair the ship" heading. Making the game stop dead in it's track as the 'repair' option demand a 28,000XP total where my current XP total stands at 25,000xp. So in reality the game is demanding that I have to  PAY to buy more XP points in order to continue playing the game.

Is this another example of 'PAY for PLAY' demand where one cannot play WoW unless you spend more money(already purchased dublloons last week)unless you pay even more money to finish the game or continuing to play the game.

Seems like blackmail. Unless you purchase more XP points, the game does not allow any further participation and just locks up.

Has anyone else had this happen?

    Can't you keep earning more as you play the game?

    I stopped playing when they started charging xp for the shells you use during a match. It just seemed pointless as you couldn’t advance without spending stupid money.

    Is this a free to play game?

    It sounds like it so i would say this is normal in the free to play space. There will be an extreme grind to discourage people playing and to encourage people to buy whatever currency the game uses. 

    Then when you do decide to buy you can't buy what you need but must buy more than you need. Then the cycle will repeat itself until you realise free to play is not worth playing.
