You can buy a premium account which lets you level faster and get silver faster than a normal player. You can pay to play with more than 1 friend at once. Think that about covers it.
EDIT: That's not to say I don't like the game, but I find that absurd to say the least. Pay for aesthetics and stuff? cool. Pay to get ammo that can 1 shot same tier tanks consistently? not cool.
I see your point, tbh I mainly play in pubs for fun as I find it an enjoyable game, I will have to spend real cash soon for gold rounds but they will be only for clan wars. To earn the xp/silver I just use my StugIII as it doesn't feel like a grind as its my fav tank anyway.
Anyway, if you see Krahe_MkII in game give me a yell.
Yea, my highest tanks are Tier 5. Rocking SU-85B (just about tier 5, 1k xp to go), Grille, M4 Sherman, ELC AMX at the moment. Gold rounds are easy to spot though... KV-1 hits you from half way across the map and one shots your M4 Sherman with a shot to the front... rage. LOL
It really isn't terrible though. Most tanks don't get a HUGE advantage from pay to win shells... if the player is anywhere near decent you're screwed though haha
