I am way on the fence with this game. I am really looking forward to the "Year of Sandboxes" and this is on my radar. However I keep reading so many give and take articles as well as some of the posts from the actual developers that talks about buying skill is legit.
What I would like clarification on is:
1) Is the skill system normally like Eve where it is time progression?
2) To what extreme can you buy skill? and at what price? Does this mean some newbie comes along plunks down $2k and all of a sudden they are a kung fu god?
3) What kind of prices are we talking about?
4) Everything is rental? for how long?
Bottom line is I don't mind paying for my entertainment, but I don't want to be nickled and dimed to death the way I keep hearing about the way this game is monetized. I read how on the Chinese servers they keep "adding new monetizing schemes" which basically obsolete any prior investments.
I am hoping unbiased responses on how it plays out.
Gaming is Dirt Cheap compared to this...
