People have been complaining about how expensive the new T9 premium ships are, so let's see how much WG is earning from selling $100 digital pixels using na.wows-numbers as a source. 

Server Number of owners Cost (USD) Rev(USD)
NA 274 97.27 26,651.98
EU 628 94.74 59,496.72
RU 119 74.06 8,813.14
SEA 172 103.69 17,834.68
Total no. 1193    
Total revenue.     $112,796.52

 

So within 3 weeks, WG could have generated a theoretical revenue of $113K of unadulterated revenue just from selling one ship. (assuming none were redeemed with coal)

I wonder how many person-hours it took to do the research, artwork and balancing? 

I mean, you are only looking at one side of the ledger.

You'll have to account for those that got the ship using coal, or won it through the containers.

You could also get the ship for 77.00 USD  .

Wargaming has over 1000 employees who want paychecks etc.

How many Pommern do you think do they have to sell to cover payroll, Social security expenses, Rent/Lease/Mortgage payments, insurance, licensing fees, taxes etc. p.p. ..........................

Do not forget to add a fair amount of profit for the investors who are risking a fair chunk of money in an industry that has a lot of fails for every hit.

Ah yes, paid for my Pommern with coal !

I doubt they made that much, ship can be obtained by lucky container rolls or for free with Coal. I believe a good third of them are free Pommerns from people regularly playing and amassing resources

Those numbers (on how much have bought) arent good... I think it is low...

I dont think they sold just that...

Not all pays US $ 100 dollars.

For me the ship cost a lot less..

Yep I got mine with coal.  When posting data, I would recommend concisely displaying data like that.  Otherwise you are only telling part of a story that is usually already infused with a slant.

You fail to consider that not all purchases are the top dollar amount. 

You fail to consider how many used in game resources. 

So your math is flawed.

it seems like every game has at least a couple of them and often many more. I know that new ships get played until the newness wears off but still the numbers look low for how often you see them in battle.

Investors? WG is a privately held company, they haven't had stock since they were tossed off the Cyprus exchange in 2015.

Private investors a thing and common.  I dunno if WG has them, but I used to work for a company that did.

Your data is extremely suspect. Wows numbers only show players with a minimum amount of games. Maple syrup shows 19,142 players played Pommern in the past week. And $113k for a single ship, obviously wouldn't keep the lights on at WG. 

If half of them were bought for money, then that would be about $950k in revenue.

I find this subject interesting, however these numbers looks very suspect.  274 for NA looks rather low....I'm getting a Pomeranian or 3 just about every ranked game.  Also as previously mentioned, how can can you filter out the ones bought with in game currency?  I imagine the majority are bought that way...  I'm guessing there are quite a few players like me that have bought just about everything in the armory and just bought it because there wasn't anything else to buy.

It would be nice to know how much rev WG makes but I don't see them divulging such info.

There is no way to do that because WG doesn't share the information.  It also does not account for people who have the ship but haven't played it.  Its not just coal either, 2 guild mates got it out of 5 crate bundle purchases, so $20 or whatever the bundle costs.

Private companies can and usually do have investors. The start up capital had to come from somewhere.
