You don't get the point. It isn't illegal to play games with money if it isn't gambling. Warlight as much as poker aren't games you gamble in. You bet in your personal skill for those, winning a warlight game isn't at all luck if you use the pure-skill settings. It's even less luck then poker.
I don't think anyone would leave warlight because more money players join the game, as long as warlight remains a game where money can't make you win more. It could actually give more to the community as a hole, as the money flow would raise. Fizzer would be able to afford better servers, maybe more staff and even afford to gie prizes in free to join competitions.
I can't see how it could be a bad thing for warlight as long as free players don't get hitted by it.
I finally got your point there. There was a couple of errors made in my original post. Will be re-adjusting the post. All he'd have to do is put more emphasis on coin games and find creative ways to acquire more traffic.
I've made some incorrect assumptions. Yes, the userbase can be preserved. You wouldn't have to get rid of clans and memberships and so forth.
And, maybe run gambling games for people outside the USA.
