I read the developers site and it says it's not pay to win, and actually awards players for skill

I know nothing about the game, but do you think that a developer would advertise their game as pay to win on their own site? 😉. Just food for thought

I did think that, this one I'll have to look at more or just try when it's out to decide.

Choose between the Allies and Axis factions, build your base, summon and strengthen your army, and then lead your troops into battle.

With over 300 campaign stages, hundreds of progression quests, dozens of tactical units, and a wide variety of combat modes to master, Pocket Platoons brings a new experience to the mobile strategy genre. Instead of relying on luck-based battle systems and pay-to-win micro-transactions, Pocket Platoons rewards player skill and a deep understanding of battlefield positioning and combat tactics.

Liking the look at this one. My iOS game library is a bit to hardcore and dark to play all the time so this might make a nice change :3
