Games that let you buy better gear or allow you to make better items then everyone else at a faster rate and then makes the game largely unbalanced even for people who have skill in the game without paying.
Dude, you've spent like 400 bucks on this game so you can beat everyone who hasn't spent any money. Pay-to-win noob!

The sad truth of the free-to-play business model.
Random guy: OMG! DCU Online is is FREE TO PLAY!
Day one purchaser: God fucking damnit
Random skeptic: You mean pay-to-win, right?

Paying real life currency to beat players who are inherently better than you in any game.
I'm so glad I pay to win in Hearthstone for all my cards, or I wouldn't even have a shot at beating the actual good players!

When you can pay real money to gain advantage in a game.
"Free to play" games like League of legends, being able to pay real life money to earn faster in-game currency, earn faster and more chimps and runes, combined with rune pages. Making it pay to win.

Pay To Win AKA P2W. when you are paying for advantage which normal players don't have access to unless they either pay too or will have to grind very long (weeks and months).
you can buy a weapon in a game which has 50 damage, while you can buy same type of weapon for REAL money which has 60 damage. that is Pay To Win
you can buy a weapon for 10000 gold, for each 10-15min match you get 100 gold, while you can buy it for real money instantly.
