Do you think selling Orders for gold is a step too far, considerng how hard most players need to work to get them?

Is this a big step down the slippery pay2win slope? Or is 3 Orders "harmless because everyone can afford them"?

Bonds? Don't you mean orders ?

 

Bonds are already "provided" with premium account, to start with.

If it's not available to purchase for credits then it's pay to win (in this case pay to progress).

I'm not surprised at all knowing how greedy wg is.

I sticked with this game through everything but this is too much. Unforgivable, i worked hard for the 260 and they do this now... all of my effort and time reduced to a tiny sum of gold...Uninstalling this game forever.

 

I disagree as well, but not quitting

Because someone buying 3 orders completely negates the all effort you put in to progress through the 4 tiers of missions... 

Bye now.

It's ok to sell them for gold (money), at least those that cry about arties should be happy - now there's not so much need to play arty.

Of course it does, it literally means my effort was pointless when you can spend a tiny bit of money and speed through the hardest missions. This is basically WG spitting in my face.

Your post is literally hyperbole.

It's 3 orders. Nothing more, nothing less. 

Congratulations of grinding your way through the missions but get a grip, it's not even enough to finish one class for one tank. It does not negate the effort you put in, in any way.

Yes, it literally does. I was stuck on some of the missions for a very long time, with this offer i could have saved myself a lot of time and effort and so can anyone else now. Just because it doesn't finish the whole set doesn't mean it's not awful. Absolutely killed my motivation to play this game ever again. 

Bye now, Mr hyperbole.

They (and you) always could. Completing a previous final mission with honours gave you an order to use on a later mission. All you had to do was go back, earn your honours and you could skip those missions too.

 

Buying orders for gold only devalues the effort the purchasers put in but I suspect those with a new Object 260 or 279(e) don't care very much about that.

How is 3 orders p2w? You don't even get to skip a tank module for the 260 with that little. Then again it's for the 1st campaign. Vs those that did it early on before orders and got the 260. They did see orders as the same thing. Most got the 260 by suddenly skipping half the stuff they did.

Does that mean, if you completed a marathon for say, the Progetto 46 meaning you got it for free, and WG sells it later, such as in xmas lootboxes, it's also them spitting in your face?

 

Grow up.

 

3 Orders aren't enough to skip a single set of missions anyway, you're being way too dramatic.
