Here's the shenanigans: When you first start out, if you pay, you'll have a slight advantage because no one REALLY knows what they're doing. If you get something they don't expect or haven't dealt with yet they'll die really easily. But once you're out of the newbie levels, paying simply expidites the process and can get you skins.

Definitely not pay to win. I do recommend making a small purchase though as it will boost the amount of EXP you earn from a match permanently. It makes unlocking stuff(doesn't affect leveling) faster. All the unlocks simply just offer more versatility, not straight up better weapons or equipment. All the weapons and equipment which affect the gameplay you can unlock and use without any real world money. The only thing which is real money purchase only are cosmetic items like skins and voice packs. Also, this game is highly skill-based and competitive. If you are good, it shows. What sort of weapons or equipment you are wearing is not as important as your skill in the game. There is a lot to learn.

No, but buying something cheap to get the permanent exp bonus makes a pretty huge difference in the grind if you want the more expensive items.

Sooo....if you buy something its not pay to win, just pay to sort of win?
In truth cita, to earn all the unlocks free to play for a given class it will take you many many months unless your a basement dweller. In that respect it is P2W, although im told by the half a dozen people that play this game that im wrong:)

No its not. This game is extremly skilled based. More so than your average fps...

And to the guy above me, it doesnt take months lol.. your average player only mains 1 or 2 classes. You dont need to unlock every single class with every single gun.

most of the people who say it's "pay to win" are using that as a scapegoat for their own lack of skill

Thanks guys ^-^
I think I may buy the steam starter kit when I have money. The lifetime 50% xp boost sounds nice.

Cool. My suggestion is to get really good with spin fusor first before you learn any other weapon. Soldier is agood all around starting class. Be sure when you atack you aim at peoples feet, or shoot where you think they wil land.

I too recommend starting with the Spinfusor, but it is locked from the start so you should IMO get the 250 facebook gold and use that to unlock it.

Not pay to win at all. Paying will get you cosmetics and weapons faster, but all of the weapons are unlockable even if you don't pay. Also, the default weapons are completely viable for most classes. Have fun :D

make sure if you have the time during a midair duel, take a shot, don't just wait for the enemy to hit the ground
