I was wondering why I had barely heard of anyone playing this game, or why nobody ever talked about it; it's pretty apparent why now though. It's a wallet warrior's dream, but for those looking for an actual game, look elsewhere.
So I thought this game was really fun at first, gave it a good review and was really enjoying the gameplay. As you get further in, however, the game really begins to lose it's fun, and fast.
You start to see how screwed the ingame economy is. For example, in order to counter enemy tanks, you're going to need the Panzerschreck, which is 35000 silver. That's not bad, if you're a decent teamplayer you get roughly 3000-4000 per match. But when you use it, you're spending thousands to restock it's ammo. Which, if you need to use it a lot in a particular match, often leaves you with a negative balance of silver. In a single match I had to spend over 5000 to replenish it.
Same goes for vehicles, you're going to be spending thousands per match repairing and restocking your vehicles to the point where your meager amounts of silver per match won't cover it, and you'll slowy dwindle your resources until you're forced to use stock gear again. Leaving you ♥♥♥♥ed if the enemy team has a lot of vehicles.
Ontop of that, past the beginner weapons you're going to be expected to spend absurd amounts on new weapons (an MP40 costs 127,000) and that's ontop of grinding ribbons for them to be unlocked, and saving up silver without losing it all from repairs and ammo.
Tired of recieving negative amounts of credits? Want to unlock new weapons and vehicles? Shekel up goyim, and you can have everything instantly :^) you won't even have to level up, paying does that for you!
edit: looks like even the devs acknowledge this. Check out the ultimate packs and the description for them on Steam.
"This pack enables you to get the full Heroes & Generals experience, where you can play all roles as Heroes on the battlefields AND command Assault Teams as a General without first having to spend hours, weeks and even months of playtime to progress your characters and unlock weapons, equipment and vehicles."
They're TELLING US to forget about playing, just fork out money to get the 'full experience', as if having to play is a chore. Shouldn't the entire game be fun, not just when you fork out $110 or spend months grinding? What ever happened to putting time into a game because it's enjoyable? Not because you 'have to' to have fun...
