Just curious about players perceptions on this game and it being P2W. 

It seems like some people think there is content in this game that is available to only a small segment of the games population and that it gives them an advantage. There are others that seem to want it to be available for purchase and it seems they are advocating that it should be pay 2 win. Others might think we are already there but some might like that and others might not. 

Really the only 2 ships right now with limited availability is flint and black and I don't think they are any more powerful than Atlanta or fletcher.

Not pay-to-win.  Part of the "human condition" is it is easier to blame the game and not themselves.

The real sin here is anyone picking normal bacon or ice cream over thick cut bacon.

There are two types of people that play this game:

1. Those who understand it's not pay to win.

2. And a very special group of people

Not sure how Flint and Black would be P2W as you need Steel to get them, or grinding Ranked Seasons?

I do think they are a little more powerful than the Atlanta and Fletcher however.

Yeah I have to agree, if this was pay to win then Premium Ships would overpowering. And while some of them can be a pain to sink, for the most part it depends on the Commander behind the screen.

I mean, if you paid someone to slave away to get steel for you, then maybe? But technically you could pay someone to beat minesweeper for you too.

The second paragraph explains the 3rd paragraph... Some people want to be able to purchase the flint and black because they think they are op.

The pay element actually allows people to exceed their abilities and get crushed. If anything it's pay to suck for well over 50% of players.

This is an extreme bias though. The people that have earned these ships have hit Rank 1 multiple times. They know what they're doing and therefore their random battle stats are going to be extremely inflated. If these ships were released to the entire public you would see those stats plummet to a more normal atmosphere.

There is pay2win and pay2play.  There is pay2play on here as you can buy premiums, premium camo, and flags to up your xp and credits.  Some of these premiums are extremely good ships to play if you know how to play them.  I have not seen play2win on here, not yet anyway.

This game isnt Pay to Win, its just very gimmicky and has alot of [edited] mechanics in it to cater to the brainless and skill less players.  Also, alot of catering to those who just want instant gratification.  Citadels, HE, Fire.....yeah, over done gimmicky crapthat kills the enjoyment.

World of Tanks, THAT game is pay to win and biased as hell, its go RUssian and load gold or go home.

There are over powered ships, but they still can be sunk.

Paying can help you progress faster (free xp bought from elites/premiums, premium time) and win a bit easier (premium consumables).  You can still do all that without paying.  So, not exclusively P2W.  Having said that, the minute I see premium ammo, I am outta here.

Also, regular bacon (thick sliced).  Isn't Canadian bacon really just ham anyway?

If this game was P2W, I'd have been a super unicum for the last 22 months.

 

Alas, I have not been a super unicum for the last 22 months...
