Guild Wars 2 or Wallet Wars 2? Buying currency is P2W.

F0URTWENTYF0URTWENTY dsadPosts: 207Member Uncommon

 

As an eve player was very vocally opposed prior to CCP introducing PLEX, and then fully unsubbed my 7 accounts once plex was added, I have 100% lost interest in guild wars 2.

 

A question for everyone mindlessly supporting this P2W...

In WvWvW would you want to know which world has the better players, or which world has the richest players? I dont want to face the world that has the most guilds that have unlimated gold to buy siege weapons ect. 

Anything similar to "plex" worse than any f2p cash shop.

    Yep.  This is what I fear.  I don't want to be matched up against these guilds, and I don't want to deal with them on my side, either  I don't want them whining when I zone into WvWvW because I don't have an unlimited supply of gold for siege engines and whatever other advantages being wealthy in pvp might bring.

    I am convinced there is only one way to eliminate these grave evils, namely through the establishment of a socialist economy, accompanied by an educational system which would be oriented toward social goals.

    To fully clarify, siege weapons need supplies, obtained from controlling supply points. Everyone will have the blue prints in a matter of days/weeks anyway.. they arn't rediculously expensive. Also, some blueprints (probably the best) will require other currencies, such as karma or honor, not just gold.

    No, you get supply by holding supply points.

     

    No amount of real world cash is going to make your players any better at holding a point in game if they are incompetent.

    Am I understanding this right? They are going to sell items in the cashshop that are tradable ingame?

    I'd be much less uneasy about this if they took all gold out of pvp supplies and advantages of any kind.  Just make whatever helps a player do well in pvp cost something that can't be bargained for gold.

    How? You actually have to play the game to get supplies. How do you get more supplies by buying gems? Since you have it all figured out sure you can explain it to us.

    The ONLY way to gain supplies is by controling WvW supply points. Read up on the game a little. They are not like crafting supplies.. they arn't in your inventory and you can't trade them.

    Oh, and what about hiring mercs?  A time honored practice in AoC, bound to make RMTers drool, as well.

    THey said convience and time saving items.

     

    This means a team could will have to spend less time to earn their supply/karma.

     

    I dont want to play against teams that need to do less to win in WvWvW

    There are no mercs, as far as I know.

    Yes. But if you buy potions for enough gems u gain supplies twice as fast or twice as fast karma.

    It's still game breaking that a team would need to spend less time to win in WvWvW

    [mod edit]

     

    Not directly... but u could purchase items that allow ur team to gain those faster through WvWvW pvp by their definitions.

    Take a look at the article. That would fall under "time saving items" to me

    Who says those honor or karma boosting items are even in the cash shop.. and who says you won't be able to buy them normally ingame as well? But because you can buy gems from other players with ingame gold then you can get those potions without spending real money as well.
