"And MA players will play full-featured MAN for free as it stated in the manual. Wargaming.net may change this policy giving 90 days prior notice. And this notice is not issued yet and is not supposed to be issued in the nearest future."

So I own MA but now I can't get into MAN without paying for it. What's the scoop? It seems that it was clearly indicated that if I buy MA then I get to be on MAN for free until stated otherwise. Please clarify.

As near as I can tell, I can play fine with MAN.

Do you mean the web site? I can't get into that either, but then again, looking at the web site is not 'playing' MAN. An annoying technicality - but it may explain things?

It is cited out of context. It was one of the proposed options during discussion about MA-MAN connection. Now it is obsolete.
MA and MAN are different products which has just some compatibility. So MA players may continue play multiplayer for free with MA, but MAN is not free for them.

Cited out of context? I'm trying to give you the benefit of the doubt on this one. It was taken directly from a post regarding MA players having to pay for MAN. How that's out of context I don't know. It's pretty clear you are saying MA players play full featured MAN for free until you give a 90 day notice.

I bet there was just a slip of pen. It's that easy to write MAN instead of MA and vice versa.

"in the manual" - There is no MAN manual, but there is MA one!

The topic is called "Will MA multiplayer continue to be free", and VaNO explained his opinion concerning MA, according to the topic, and tried to reassure all MA community.

So what he was really trying to say is that you can give 90 day notice and then those that purchased MA will have to pay for MA mutiplayer?

I've said the latest vision of MA-MAN connection in my previous post in this topic and in some other topic. I may repeat and explain it once more.
1) MA is single-player oriented product with some multiplayer options
2) MAN is multiplayer oriented product with some single-player training
3) These products are different
4) Multiplayer has some compatibility, i.e. MA players may play with MAN players and vice versa
5) MA players will continue getting what they have paid for, i.e. MA multiplayer will continue be free
6) Forget about 90 days notice. It means that the company should not grant this service forever or forever for free - we are all mortal. And this statement is about MA death. And I believe it will occur not so soon that you should remember it.
7) MAN will have some multi-player features that MA will not have.
8) MA players are free to choose continue playing MA or upgrade to MAN for a special price, which will be available soon.

Just looking for clarification. I'm guessing that English is not your first language based on where you are located so I want to be sure that I'm getting the message straight.
