Do you think upgraded mustang could give better speed than yuma for the same amount of cash spent?
This isn't fun. And it isn't fair. Before someone jumps on me for that last one: this is a game that should be open to everyone without such a heavy, unabashed bias/favoritism towards those who spend real life money on it or favors those who just so happen to have played longer."The whole "Free to play, but pay to win" scenario is becoming more and more apparent with each "update"... it's the "Haves" vs the "Have-nots" (or at least the ones that can only spend money on Real Life things and not a game)."
Exactly! I used to buy Nuggets fairly regularly to do the Character premium and sometimes the Automation/Income/Energy premiums if I needed them in that world... I'm currently in 12 worlds... Back then, I think I was still in 12 worlds, just different ones. (W1 to W12) I stopped buying Nuggets after they added the ability to buy skills. I haven't purchased them since. That seems to be the turning point when it turned into the "Pay to Win" game. I know a lot of people left the game at that time... I know more left because they didn't have many dueling targets left because they had disappeared... There used to be hundreds of thousands of people playing... Now... a mere shadow of that.As always, it is yet another evil scheme to try to get more money at the expense of the fun of the game. It's sad really. I used to play another game, but in that one, it wasn't some faceless corporation running the game and the guys who DID run the game, made sure that the players were kept happy. Result? The players were more willing to invest real-money IN the game. Adding things en-masse, saying it's an 'improvement' and then sitting back, rubbing your hands in glee, waiting for all the money to start rolling in, has the opposite effect. All the people who would have spent real money HATE the new 'improvement' and refuse to pay any real money.
I'm all for capitalism, but you have to keep your customers happy or you will lose them.
World 1 has no skill buying and it is - and has been for a while - the worst world of all. People quit after that update either because they overreacted or to make a statement against the increased focus on premium-centric updates rather than because skill buying seriously affected game balance. It really didn't.At least W1 has been saved from the skill buying option... I hope it remains that way.
