    You know what the problem here is? Nobody ever greets impar in return.

    Greetings, impar! :)
    Cheers for the links.

    I'm really excited about this game, but I am concerned for the F2P model. They may insist that it's not pay-to-win because of their balancing attempts, but I don't like it when F2P schemes allow for the purchase of game-changing items/equipment/etc at all even if it just means unlocking stuff faster.
    Paying for a battlefield advantage is still paying for a battlefield advantage.

    There are certainly benefits to the F2P model for a game like this but personally I would prefer to just buy the game up-front and not have the competitive aspect of the game influenced at all by real money.

    The problem is cultural differences! I remember someone asking about the frequent greetings in another thread and him explaining that it's a common thing to do on Portuguese forums.
    My own take on F2P is very much the same. It bothers me when developers say that unlocking things early isn't an advantage because it shows that they clearly misunderstand an important part of balance: options. Each individual item may be balanced in the grand scheme of the game, but a player with access to all items versus one with, say, half of the items will be at an advantage. The first player has the ability to select from a greater pool of items which will best suit the situation and their playstyle to counter the limited second player.

    Greetings!

    If someone is in doubt to buy or not the Founders pack, he should make up his mind. Fast.
