Probably because that is simply an untrue claim. P2W is inherently bad on many levels. The number of people who actually make game purchase decisions with P2W as a dealbreaker or supremely negative trait isn't small. You'd have to do the impossible and find enough P2W supporters to get the decision changed... Good luck with that.

I'm all about paying for content, but totally opposed to paying for advantage. I suspect the majority of gamers here, even those who vehemently disagree with me on every other issue will agree with that.

Can you name an MMORPG that isn't P2W?

Based on how broadly people try to define "pw2" all games are P2W now. including the original EQ. Why? Cause you had to pay to play, and if you didn't pay you couldn't win. /sarcasm

People have already stated that BDO EU/NA is P2W because of head start and pets. The times we live in...ugh.

I would list a ton of MMO that had no P2W. But again, the rebuttals tend to get stupid, so it's pointless.

Thank you everyone for contributing to this thread, but it has gone far enough off the rails.  I am going to close it now, feel free to make a suggestion for this change in the appropriate forum section.
