World of Tanks is a, surprisingly, really popular, well designed free to play multiplayer title. It blossomed on PC, shortly after which it made it’s free debut on the Xbox 360. Anyone with an Xbox Live Gold account could get in on the tank rolling fun, and soon you’ll be able to do the exact same on the Xbox One.
I know you're all suckers for competitions. There's nothing like free stuff to make us happy, and there's a competition that I wish I could take part in, too. Alas, I have integrity and don't feel it's appropriate, but man, I wish I could get this fancy shmancy new TV.
Free to Play games get a lot of flak - often referred to as pay to win, it's assumed that you actually need to pay money to enjoy them. While this may or may not be true, the reality is that these games rake in some big bucks, but you may be surprised which ones earn the most money.
I’m really starting to think that the chaps over at Wargaming – the folks responsible for free-to-play phenomenon World of Tanks – didn’t actually read any of their contracts regarding bringing their game to the Xbox 360. Not long after the big announcement, they started getting a bit moany. First, they complained about the game needing Xbox Live Gold, and now they say that Xbox Live’s policies just aren’t suited to their game.
Up until now, Riot’s League of Legends and Valve’s Dota 2 have been hogging the eSports spotlight with their million dollar prize pools, but Wargaming.net wants a piece of the eSports pie. They’ve announced a 2.5 million dollar prize pool for their eSports season of 2013.
