On low tiers it is not that bad. As you climb the ladder - turns to pure Pay 2 Win.

How much do I need to pay?  Clearly it's more than I usually spend.

Some players could be given all the 'Gold' ammo for free and still suck. Your topic title is about P2W...many unicums don't pay a penny to play because they don't need to. There is more to playing this game than 'Gold' ammo.

If you feel the need to start a dumb thread like that, you should at least elaborate your point and explain your understanding of p2w.

Premammo is one of the smallest problems when talking about p2w. Everyone who successfully finished elementary school will be able to load enough of it on most of his tanks. Doesn't require any paying.

I'm a relative noob and I figured out early that you don't need to pay to win. It's the main reason I'm playing this and nothing else since Xmas. I rely heavily on premium ammo when required as I am not skilled enough to do without it, but other than GBP11.00 on a couple of Xmas boxes ( a Xmas present from my 12 year old son ), I haven't spent anything. If I do, it will be because I want to and not because you need it to win. Premium ammo is bought by credits and the tanks I'm good in ( TDs, a medium or two and a couple of heavies ) accumulate the credits to allow me to blast around with premium ammo when I'm a useless tomato trying to fight tier ix in my tier vii that i haven't got a clue how to fight with!! At least that way I contribute something!! I think the game is very well balanced and just requires patience when it comes to grinding those horrific stock guns... (Jagd Panther i'm talking about you!!!).

 

Check out Quicky Baby and his free to play videos on Youtube. They are excellent for teaching how to play without paying.

 

There is a lot of moaning on here and I don't really understand a lot of it. Constructive criticism and helpful advice are much better. If you don't like the game, go play something else. Personally, I think it's great, a little frustrating at times, but still one of the best.

I'm more interested in whether we can break the thirty page barrier with a thread that can be summarised as.

 

Oh yes it is.

Oh no it isn't.

Considering the human disposition to avoid personal responsibility, I don't think that will be a hard task.

2nd topic in less than 2 days? I mean most blame their team or the MM for their failures. But it's been a while since we had a p2w topic. Instead of blaming the p2w ammo. Look at what you did wrong when you die. If you should have left vs staying to fight something you can win vs. Or did you not react or pay attention to the map and got flanked? Blaming p2w is an easy way out. But it won't fix anything. Even when the gold ammo get's changed.

 

You have several tier 8 premiums. So I know you don't suffer financially to lack funding to press 2 that you complained about in your last topic. I've not bought premium time in years. And still, I can afford to press 2 if needed to counter "p2w armor". And one of your prems is the one most complain about when FL comes. So you're almost there.

 

Then again can you honestly say you never ever pressed 2 on any of your tanks? And if you have done. Why did you do so? And there you go. Don't tell me you played the Type 4 with normal AP or HE 100% of the time. Or the T69 with not a single HEAT? As then you are the only one.

OP ....Yes this game is 100% pay to win , But if you don't care about stats or judge yourself buy your skill in a computer game it stops mattering .....Play a tank you enjoy 

I like my T20 i don't care about gold ammo as stranded ammo pen just as well ..I don't care if im top or bottom tier as T5 can pen just as T9 can pen ,, 

 

So i enjoy my game time ..I stop playing when i stop enjoying or luck turns against me and i never spend a penny no premium account small gold ammo loadout 

never use premium consumables just simple old fashion game play  

 

Never have chat on in game stop players contacting you in garage never spend a penny and don't take i seriously turn the PC off when you stop enjoying the game 

So now its P2W ..Play 2 Win ..

Almost every time some one destroys my tank they could do so just as easily with standard as with prem ammo. This is because I'm not a great player and I give them the opportunity to do so.

Every time someone destroys my tank it must have been haxx. This is because I'm a far better player than my stats suggest so there can be no other logical reason.

Only stupid people care about what "sounds good". Smart people care about facts, even if they don't sound good.

In real life, slogans and similar meaningless platitudes aren't facts just because you like how they sound.
