Usually free apps reqiure certain permissions. That means they can get their hands on data, which might be valueable to them.

It has crates that you need to buy keys to open (at least, I think it does. If not, it certainly will in the future), as well as the credits to buy the crates.

Why would they do that? People will pay $30 for a PC game but basically no one would pay anything close to that for a mobile game. They're completely different markets, with basically everything on mobile being free to download with in-app purchases or pro versions.

Yeah, but ads on a platform with millions of users = lots of views = may as well have the ads in game.

Oh, it seems the game is own by tencent. Tencent is a huge Chinese technology company so I am pretty sure they can easily host free massive multiplayer games. Their business model could be using the game to promote their other services I guess. They own mobile payments and stuffs i heard

its a very easy answer, there are one of 3.

1. pay to wins such as clash of clans where there are hundreds of micro-transactions.

2. there is advertisements adventure capitalists (ads so you can get in-game stuff) 

3. some games such as pubg are made to have people play them and then buy the full game farther down the line (if thats on PC or if the game is just a "lite" of the original)  an example of this is block fortress and block fortress lite.
