Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

You do not need to spend any money to win or even be moderately successful at this game. Plenty of Youtube videos show you how to play. Too many people spend too much time on the game and are totally poor at it because they are too ignorant to learn to play properly It is a game for kids aged 12 and over. They are in secondary school by that age. All kids know all the swear words by 12, if they don't, they are either lying to you, or have lead a very sheltered life and the real world is going to become very hard for them very soon. If so, this game is the least of their worries, and yours. I would suggest that all the adults commenting and giving 1 star reviews need to grow up themselves rather than post ignorant comments. I have played the game moderately often during lockdowns and find it a bit of escapism. The frustrating elements are when you have got to the best tanks at the top tier and people with no idea have brought themselves to the top. That spoils it for others. It is generally parents paying for children to win. Which is a fallacy as it does not work like that and is just wasting money. That's a parent problem to me.

Be respectful towards the game, don't be childish.

Don't mind the others, focus on the good. Think about if your child likes the game. Just my opinion. Anyways, the game is not at all pay to win (p2w), it really relies on pure skill. Other parents have stated that "premium shells" cost gold, which is bought from real USD/ money. I've played the game myself, and you can switch the currency you buy it from, credits, which can be earned from the game, or gold. You can turn off the general chat, I'm pretty sure, and there are restrictions on such that can be turned on in the settings. Don't flame the game in the comments, amazing game design. Let your child grow and develop their motor skills, which is 11+, so they can work on their hand coordination, to play the game better and not be frustrated.
