Was thinking about trying this game out (Is it pay to win?)

Is it another pay to win game or is the item shop not necessary to be competitive? My interests are mostly in PvP.

    Probably the only game not severly broken by cash shop but beware of the gold spam. You will need to learn to block the spammers asap otherwise you will not see chat.

    If you do start and have issues with the downloader on playrf check my post on this forum. Hopefully that post will get around to those that are wanting to try the game but couldn't.

    The premium items are decent. But beware of  the gold sellers or players who are selling their items for real money. They're everywhere.

    I love your phrase of Pay to Win.

    I wish people would use it instead of so called 'Free 2 Play'...

    Money in this game gets you:

    - Potions that heal 100% of your HP/FP/SP (while the best healing potions you get in-game heals for 5k health, note that tanks can go as high as over 40k health with the proper equipment and your average health if not a melee class should be around the 10-15k, otherwise it's around the 15-25k after level 50).

    - Upgrader boxes - a casino box for one of the different kind of talics that do not involve any chance of wiping/losing the item (there are the unstable boxes, but the risks yields reward), people usually NEED these to get a +5 or higher equipment (it goes from +0 to +5 for example), because otherwise the chances of wiping/breaking get insane, and when the equipment is hard to acquire, you simply can't afford losing it.

    - Jewels - if you want to upgrade the old fashioned way, you have T5 and T6 jewelry set for sale in the CS, while the best ones attainable in-game are T4 (not that it makes it any more viable than using an upgrader box).

    - Jades. Pay enough and you can equip items up to 5 levels higher than your current level, this can make an interesting difference at higher levels.

    Those are just a few things to mention that came to my mind right now that are the most noticeable, there's a lot more for sale.

    I nominate the phrase "Pay to Win" to be forever remembered as a meme. Well done Ashanor.

    Basicly.

    No you do not need the item mall to  become a kickass pvp player.

    the item mall mainly provides cosumable items like potions. teleports and stuff like that,.

    altho there are private servers that sell equipment and weapons Fortunately. these are mostly not overpowered.

    mail me if u have more questions :3 happy to provide u some answers X3

    [color=red] nothing will last forever
    no need to stay here.
    free you from the endles spell.
    and find yourself well.
    let the four winds blow again.
    you make your story.

    From now on I will always refer to F2P games as P2W.

    Also, when I played this game it seemed pretty much to be a game where buying stuff = win so I quit pretty quickly.

    I just DL'd and installed this 2 or 3 days ago, so I won't say a word on my thoughts of the game yet, as they aren't formed worth a crap.

    As to where to get it now:

    www.playrf.com/index.asp

    FYI when you first run the launcher/updater it will be in (i think) Korean If not, a similar squiggily writing....

    Once it fully updates though it will run the correct version and connect just fine.

    Also once mine was fully updated i had to exit it and re launch for it to connect properly.

    Runs just fine on Win 7 x64 if anyone needed that info as well.

    Oh i don't need a review on the game but thanks for the info, much appreciated, i bought this game back in 2005 when it came out, so i've been at it on and off for some time until codemasters shut their server down, i was quite high level , mid-late 40's before i quit the game , but i hope to find some lost faces ingame.

    I played this game ALOT i was the 3rd specialist in level and equip on the cora side

     

    All i can say ..  PAY TO WIN  is the motto of this game.

    Ah and yeah the support of this games is very lame ..I know ppl who spend RL cash to buy stuff then lose it due to maint. and never got refunded.
