    When it comes to CoE, I am really am still very much on the fence on the whole Advantage thing, because all of these "advantages" are shared, they are no solitary.

    Like for example: a Player buys a Kingdom, which includes an amount of infrastructure like, Roads, Bridges, Buildings, and Natural Resources like Rivers, Trees, Etc, that everyone else in that kingdom gets access to, free of charge, IE: They do not need to pay real money for it. So this King is shelling out Real Cash, for an Advantage that ALL of the citizens get to reap.

    Unlike say, Buying a ChainMaile Bikini that keeps their personal nether regions protected from a crotch shot.

    However, more people would view buying the Kingdom as P2W, then the Bikini, yet, the Kingdom is a shared investment whereas the bikini is a personal advantage.

    Same with this voting for land domain or whatever the hell it turns out to be, I imagine that the King or Queen that gets first pick, which they will pay cash out of pocket for, will opt to go for a ideal plot of land with better natural defenses and more abundant resources, an in doing so, they will confer that Advantage to all their citizens, Everyone Down the Line, from their Nobel's, to city counsel members right down to the pig farmer and peasant, all will be able reap that reward as well, even if they didn't pay a cent of real money for it.

    Sure the "King" and other nobel's as well as other positions will be able to charge taxes, which is their right, no matter how they managed to obtain the crown, nor how much they spent to give an advantage to their people. As such, all the money these Monarchs are spending past the purchase of the Crown itself is really money they are giving to their citizens to ensure they have a better place to live.

    In that vein, they seem truly Nobel, and worthy of the title.

    Wow! This is why I don't give money to these game companies. None of them can be trusted.
    So you don't play games then, yet hang around gaming forums? 

    Weird.
    To be fair, they only said they don't give money, they could still be one of their habitual freeloaders we all hear about.

    While this may be true, Pearl Abyss is also choosing not to be the Hero.

    PA could do something to make this less painful to their player base, even if just giving away free Temp Accounts, that have Fast Track EXP built in, and a Token Pet and fancy fishing rod.. just to give the people in that region that want to play their game something more then a "Sucks to be you right now" attitude that PA and most Game Companies adopt when it comes to taking care of their players. No matter what level of thug GamerNet may be in this situation, keep in mind, PA si the one that has chosen to let the players in that region have no alternative then buying a new account and starting over again with nothing.

    Am I the only one who finds this pay for "advantage" label nonsense stupid? It's either pay 2 win or it's not in my book. Which I'm sure you don't need me to tell you which one I think CoE is. 
    Perhaps, I find labeling every advantage as "winning" to be ignorant, precision in language is actually important.

    Look at how many struggle with terms such as MMO or sandbox.

    Yup...

    I kinda gave up on even entertaining P2W cries when I was playing GW2, and people called Mount Skins P2W, not mounts, but purely cosmetic skins, they called P2W, that just totally killed the term for me. Like.. not even gonna bother.

    So yes.. very much so precision in language is important, or the terms themselves become meaningless.

    I do not have a dog in this fight but.. 

    We all know PA could very easy give all the accounts affected something like 100 dollars worth of "pearls" as huge good-will gesture and to apologize for any inconvenience they are going though due to this mess, and it would not cost them a cent, as it's all digital vapor anyway,  maybe even toss them all a custom cosmetic crown, like some kind of "We survived The Transfer" type of deal. And this would build sold rock faith in PA to stand by their players and be there for them under any and all circumstances. 

    But they won't, and we all know this, they would rather fight with GameNet while leaving their players high and dry, as I said before, Game Companies do not respect their players investments and then we wonder why communities within games are getting worse.



    You tell me how they would give anything to anybody with no data. They don't have customer data.

    GameNet works like the Russian Government, by extortion. They extorted their player base and now the license holder.

    Pearl Abyss is simply cutting ties to a terrible company, said company is proving how bad they really are.
    They could very easy allow for any New Account made in the Region that GamerNet (ISP tracked) controlled to be given some free rewards for "Returning To Pear Abyss" with the promise that the rewards would be transferred over to their Main account (at the players choice) once the situation was resolved.

    In the Intern the new accounts would get 100 dollars in Pearls to buy stuff, maybe a pile (20) exp pots, to allow them to catch up, and a special "Welcome back to PA Pet" that looked like a Bright Bouncy Pearl.

    Once things settled, transfer over Progress to their main account (Again, ISP/CC Tracked) at the players request, they would receive +EXP/+gold/+loot potions for every level their "New Account" earned, and transfer over "Base Materials" for all gear, as well as the 100 dollars in Pearls and the Special Pet.. and the "Temp Account" would get deleted.

    If they were worried about abuse, they could lock the accounts so they cannot trade any Store Items, Pears. or other "rewards" to other players.

    Really it's not hard to make people feel like "You got their back" if you want to make people feel like you got their back.
