I'm personally not really bothered by it that much.
My reasoning is that my main issue with P2W is not the P2W portion of it, it is the crappy game design that enhances P2W which prevents me from playing those games.
I don't play cellphone games because they are just so shallow and the main concept is just to entice you to pay money. The issue isn't the money, it's the shallowness of the game play.
Now the usual Asian grinding P2W crap is a no-go because those games are pathetically shallow offering nothing new or innovative, just a typical, boring, and pathetic mechanism to get you to spend money, same as cell phone games.
The other issue people don't talk about is what I call T2W or Time-2-win . . . these are the people who play all day and people like me cannot compete given busy work and family life. I consider P2W and T2W as opposite sides of the same coin.
So why does P2W bother you so much. For me 90% of what bothers me about P2W are the shallow mechanics that come with it and the 10% as the P2W portion as it ruins the purity of the game. Overall, P2W doesn't really bother me. Give me a super complex in depth game and P2W wouldn't stop me from playing it. Like, if Star Citizen ever comes out, even if it is heavily P2W, i'd still probably try it and try to carve out a nice niche for myself.
1) I play Entropia Universe, the real cash economy game and people wrongly consider it a P2W game, it isn't at all. If I go to a casino and spend $50 vs $5,000 do I have a better chance of getting a profit if I play slot machines using 10 cents vs $5 per roll? That's Entropia for you. Plus, the RCE is ridiculously innovative and refreshing. Everything I put in the game, I can potentially get out. If the game continues for another 7 years, i'll eventually profit it from based on my land deeds.
2) Now on to Archeage, I wasn't interested in it before because of how bad people trashed the game. Now that there is B2P it nudges me toward being interested in it. Reading on some forums how people use many alt accounts to maximize land and can pay money for whatever, is fine, EVE had the same thing (insert Kyleran and his 6 mining accounts). I don't care about spending money to get best gear. It's the same for me as someone who raided 1,000 times to get the best gear. The smarter person is the one who probably worked an extra 40 hours at work over a few months and then buys the gear . . . right. Some people are limited by money, others are limited by time, some are limited by both i guess, and some are limited by none. Either way, It doesn't bother me.
