Is Reboot going pay to win?
So I noticed that in the "BTS signature pack" that there is a temporary title with stats in it.
"Swan Dream Title ,EXP +10%, ATT/M.ATT +15, STR/DEX/INT/LUK +15, Boss Damage +10%, Ignore Defense +10%, Max HP/Max MP +750, Star Force +30, Arcane Power +50"
This just fells wrong and I felt like if I didn't say something tis would keep happening until it became normal and reboot would not be it self anymore.
I'd like to hear other peoples opinion on this.
All due respect I don't really think that's worth mentioning.. Reboot is the 'f2p' server because of the obvious stark contrast in spending requirements to be competitive relative to non-reboot servers. Imagine this - Nexon still calls Maplestory 'Free to Play!'.. More like 'free to get carried through the game by people spending $10,000 to be sorta competitive'.
I would rather reference the consumer spending behavior from the players than what Nexon 'officially' labels as free or not.. Better to trust your experience and observations over a company's PR team.
You don't have to spend money to be "competitive" with other players on reg servers. I can solo Lotus on my Hoyoung and most of my progression on him came from just playing the game. I know F2P players at Willcid level too. There's no actual competition between players either. This is a silly mindset tbh. Play the game at your own pace.
This game is most definitely "free to play" too. Ironically, I'm pretty sure the "free to get carried" line applies to reboot more because of the lack of trading between players. Lotta people asking for carries on reboot.
Youre terribly wrong if u defend this game not being P2W, the moment an item thats obtained through real money gives u an advantage over someone that doesnt buy it, thats pay to win, all f2p games have this features, they allow u to progress for free but it mmakes progresison way faster if u pay, they make free progression annoying so u are kind of inclined to pay for faster progression.
