F2p players completely chanceless

For a long time f2p players had a  disadvantage compared to Cash players (less hero tokens, less reroll tokens, less gold...) , but they were able to gather decent amounts of stars in the challenges anyway.
But now everything has changed. More and more often ranged classes are used (Sasha, Princess, Yumiko..).
Without the winter harpoon you cause so much more thread.. Often there is no way to finish higher missions. 
And the black market offers the same stuff every day for months. 
Why can't the winter harpoon be offered in the bm like many other game-changing weapons before?

    I don't know if this includes you, but people who don't bother to learn the game mechanics and meta always justify their lacking scores with exactly this type of argument, while many f2p players manage to score high, and many people who pay never do. Freemium mobile games have to make money somehow and if you think this one is bad you should try one by EA ;)

    It’s not supposed to be fair. They’re in the business to make money, so the premium stuff naturally becomes pay only. Don’t worry about comparing your results to those with open wallets, it’s not worth it.

    Also winter harpoon isn't needed for SPY team. Silent doesn't help this team usually. 

    Lucky regular harpoon works just fine

    Look at all the helpful videos on youtube. More and more missions are played with one or even two winter harpoons.
    So there is no help, no advice for f2p players in many missions. 
    And I believe, the vast majority of twd nml players never pays real money. Most of them will also never post a comment here.
    They will just uninstall the game if they don't enjoy it any more.
    But maybe NG is more dependant on these players than they want to be...

    Don’t watch the videos 😂. I bought only two guys for almost 5 years so I’m almost f2p and I can do easily 2,5k stars without any tools now I’m at 3k and I just lost 18 stars so far. Maybe I can do 3,5 so as paste said learn the mechanics

    The winter harpoon will be offered for free eventually in either GW shop or Black market. You just need to be patient. Just like the lucky decimator, I knew a free version would come around eventually, so I waited, and lo and behold they put it in the GW shop. I think NG has been very generous with allowing f2p players the chance of obtaining premium weapons for free. I don’t have the winter harpoon either so I’m just using the lucky harpoon (which I got for free in BM) until a free winter harpoon comes around. In the meantime, save up your gold and BM tokens. This game is not a sprint, if you want to be f2p, you gotta be patient.

    @Goptus_kf it seems the winter harpoon is your great white whale

    Irony  :p

    Is pretty standard that premium gears will get offered to FTP eventually. 

    Exhibit A: Lucky Decimator was in last season guild wars shop.

    Premium gears are often initially released for $$ only, for NGs to make a few bucks, then once the revenue for that item slows to a trickle, they release it as reward in game somewhere.

    Is also worth noting that many premium gears, like the Morningstar and Cresent edge were free to EVERYONE from day 1.

    Patience grasshopper.

    Sure, I've been patient for a long time.
    In the beginning I had to play without a spear, without a staff for years while other players had clear advantages. 
    But now I notice, that my patience is not infinite...

    With Sasha + Princess + Yumiko you can certainly use a non-silent winter harpoon.

    So what then... Everything should be free then? To everyone always?

    No, the pickle jar could stay a real money item.

    @Goptus_kf, I ask for iTunes gift cards for Christmas and my birthday. Technically, I am not spending my money on the game. :wink:
