Another interesting element about Arena is what's going on outside of the game. It's the first title that Wargaming's Alliance label is publishing. Representatives for the studio teased that they are already speaking with other developers about potential partnerships to help them extend their traditional games into online, free-to-play space. If all goes well with Arena, Wargaming could be seen as the go-to publisher for helping manage these kinds of transitions

 Wargaming, whose Wargaming Alliance unit is publishing Arena, told us that Creative Assembly is focusing on getting the gameplay refined and polished before making decisions about monetization

"We know our audience; we definitely get their feedback," Garcia said. "We make sure that the game is for their enjoyment, their entertainment. We want to make happy players, not pissed off players. We are very committed to keeping players happy."

Well-spotted Xeir.

 

I will add 1 quote, in addition to the ones you mentioned, which all stood out to me as well:

 

Block Quote

 Like any other free-to-play game, its success will be dictated by whether or not it can attract and retain a playerbase.

 


...When ten to the enemy’s one, surround him;

...When five times his strength, attack him;

...If double his strength, divide him;
...If equally matched you may engage him;
...If weaker numerically, be capable of withdrawing;
...And if in all respects unequal, be capable of eluding him,
...for a small force is but booty for one more powerful."

What comes down to in MOBA games from my experience is a good commercial and advertising. My first time I tried League of legends was after some pretty cool battle commercial type of video. And I think wargaming could provide the sufficient advertisement skills, I mean have you checked some of the world of tanks commercials. Damn they could do a movie after :D

 

 

Ohh and I forgot, the variety​ of content. For example there are currently 136 released champions​ in League atm, Thou what arena is aiming is a different type of gamers (Strategic)

Thanks Xeir, very interesting article.  I like the attitude expressed by the devs, sounds committed and caring.

To don't create new topic about this, but still say it exist:

 Mr. Martsinouskaya: Wargaming is a company of F2P, I do not intend to make a fierce monetization game for Creative Assembly, and they do not want it either.

 

Block Quote

 Mr. Garcia: I can not stock it. It is a specification, and even a formal service. As an image, it is not like repurchasing a large amount of silver every time to repurchase a tank, it is close to an image like paying a repair fee after a battle and re-sorting. In historical facts, a huge cost was required to reorganize the troops, but "TWA" is a game, so it has become possible to organize units with low numerical values.

 

 

 

BTW: Looking on how questions was created e.g

 - "TWA" has interestingness with combinations of units, is there a factor like a set bonus depending on the combination?

 

I would be not suprised if that interview was not "spontaneous" but created for Marketing objectives.

Thx for sharing.
Important information for me was:
- after alpha session 7 we will move to closed Beta
- regional Servers will be implemented
- Siege mode is likely after release
- probably no changes in team size

specific schedule has not yet been finalized, internal testing has already been carried out up to Phase 6. The phase 7 test is scheduled soon, and when it is over, we will move to CBT and open beta, planned to proceed with official service. Although we want to put out early,

 

They didin't say that, it was just PR talk.
