I want to start off saying I really don't care that this game is pay 2 win, but i find it fricken hilarious how butt hurt the people in this game get, when you tell them that. They spend hours defending how a game where you can get instant ships, skills, money, power with real money is not pay 2 win. The argument of course in their mind hinges on the fact that, its not winning cause some one who plays for 6 months or so and has some skill points can be useful in pvp. Fact remains that if you take 2 people, one with 28 grand and one with 15 bucks, and the 2 people dueled the guy with 15 bucks with lose for the next year or more, in till he caught up slightly. I don't get why people one have to defend a clearly pay 2 win game, if they enjoy playing it, and 2 why they come up with the most crazy excuses to make it not pay 2 win for them? It is like if they ever came to reality to see the game is pay 2 win, the game wouldn't be fun for them any more. The guy in the story didn't use real money in this case, but scamming people with gambling, either way though, you could do the same thing with cash. So really guys get over being butt hurt about a game being pay 2 win already, it anit going back to ultima online and eq days, where there were no cash shops. Even those games were pay 2 win, cause you could by a instant max character from a person.
So i guess all I am really saying, if you like a game who cares if it is pay 2 win or not? Why make up all these weird excuses to say its not, going so far as getting angry when some one says the game is clearly pay 2 win. Add in the fact that the definition of pay 2 win is worthless, but in all mmos if you pay cash you get a advantage over some one who doesn't. The only exceptions which arent really mmos are, mobas, and a select few emulated mmos like SWGEMU, and project 1999. In any other game, you literally can max everything with cash, and have huge advantages over people who dont pay as much.
