    Of course people who eat and shower will have a similar disadvantage.  :)

    perhaps I am not following the point of this thread.

    All die, so die well.

    Well, I think Christians get "Died For Our Sins" which removes all conditions on nearby allies.  Jews get "Salt Pillar" which turns the next mob that looks in your direction into a pillar of salt (I think you can vender the salt, not sure).  Muslims have "Jihad" which is probably the best, since you can declare what part of the game you want the boost applied to (crafting, monsters, etc).  Scientologists get "The Truth is Fiction" which confuses all nearby foes.  Hindus kinda get ripped off in that they just have an elite that lets them turn into Shiva and kill everything (not a very good representation, I know).

    Umm, that's about it, I think.

    That depends on whether you consider gaming to be work, or relaxation

    I think it is pretty self evident scientologists will have the advantage. Why? Because of Tom Cruise of course. Nobody fucks with the Cruise!

    1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.

    2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.

    3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.

    That actually sounds like a fairly cool game idea there.... would tick everyone off.... but a cool idea all the same.
