The funny thing about the discussion that If Star Citizen is or not pay2win (which is not the purpose of this thread to evaluate if it is or not) is what Chris Roberts said:
"I know that people have different understanding of what pay to win means, but in my understanding Pay2Win is..."
I mean... He put in his advertising a big "NO pay to win" to define his business model and his game, to call attention to people, but HE KNEW AND CONFIRMED THAT BY HIS OWN WORDS, that people could have a different understanding of that.
For those that do not understand the implications of that, they should take a look in some advertising laws, to understand that an advertising CANNOT have the objective to mislead people, which clearly was the objective of CR, since he knew in the first place, confirmed that, but still used that phrase in his advertising, WITHOUT ANY DISCLAIMER or ANY FURTHER EXPLANATION, to clarify for those people that HE KNEW that had a different thought learned what HE UNDERSTAND of that BEFORE to pay for the game.
Just one more tool that they constantly use to feed their Money Machine and to achieve profit using people that are so hungry to have any Space Sim launched, and do not stop to evaluate it better and to see the hidden things of their marketing.
