Was in Team Practice yesterday with the Guild leader of Goontang (goonsquad's wushu arm). The multi gaming community of goonsquad is well known for it's less than ethical tactics in games, and I won't get into that here. But while in the TP with him, a few of us got into the discussion of his guild and the fact that they were until recently very un-equiped and kind of newbish, yet were starting a lot of crap and making a lot of enemies.
He responded by telling us that a member of goontang, who happened to be an investment banker, droped 10K real life dollars on the game. Converted that into unbound silver, and is using it to gear GoonTang to the tits & powerlevel thier divination. I had wondered how the members of Goon had gone from wearing all wood gear to maxed out Silver gear in a matter of two days, and this definitly answers that question.
How is this not P2WIn? It seems to be the pure definition of P2Win in my opinion.
P.S. he also said that the same member is considering buying one of the epic weapon skins for 9grand if they ever release them in the USA.
