See all the threads in the forums about Ghillue suits, fish suits, and soon to be desert suits. Ghillie suit is basicly a requirement in most top guilds as it offers a massive pvp advantage.

Totally p2w.

See all the other threads in this forum as proof. This game sells pvp advantages and is slowly going down the same pay2win road that every korean game takes.

 

 

Save your money.

Seriously... not even remotely the correct (or even appropriate) meme for this.

Also, ignore the defenders trying to justify their purchase. Just ask them why they bought it and see their answers for yourself.

 

 

For reference. That tree suit you see is the $25 advantage people are buying up for "gathering"

You clearly don't know what p2w actually is. I suggest you go play Archeage

Why do I feel like around 90% of people complaining about the Ghillie Suit never hit 50+ and have actually dealt with it?  Its REALLY not that big of a deal.  This game is currently less P2W than even WoW, where you can actually purchase ingame currency and buy upgradable ilvl 715 items off the AH.  Its also game I've enjoyed most in a few years.  If you don't like it, leave.  Don't spread your lies for hours and days across the forums because you're unhappy.

The only P2W aspect is the ghillie suit, which they are going to change in some way to make it fair.
The only other stuff is pay to progress, which most MMOs do in some way, especially the grindy ones like this.

God forbid you spend 25 dollars on this game for a ghillie suit at some point.  Talk about breaking the bank

Op is accurate, game is pay 2 win because the advantages you can get from the shop can not be created in game.

If idiots like the OP won't buy the game and play, more for us.

The channels are getting massively crowded already, and getting worse everyday.

Its only an advantage (and even then, only very slightly) in pvp - if you care not for pvp, don't listen to the OP. If you do care for pvp - play with nameplates off in the first place - and bingo, non-issue.

I remember the first few months Archage was crowded.

Which is the crux of the issue right now with people on these forums.

P2W:
Being able to purchase items that increase the success rate of your enchanting.

People's perception of P2W:
Swimming faster while looking retarded.

Having your name hidden while looking retarded. (This one is closer, but doesn't mean they are any harder to kill. In Archeage, the p2w meant 1v20 and the 1 winning.)

The game being P2W is more reason for me to play. I'm certain that I'm not the only one who feels this way.
