I like Flames but just because there is no P2W implementation as of yet, doesn't mean one can't be made. Look at CMS and TMS's implementation of damage cap "removal" or their implementation of Sweet Water gears to see what I'm talking about.
There are already CS black flames in CMS (they're like black cubes, of course, but for additional options).
my point exactly (i forgot CMS had those)
the flames system can be implemented in P2W ways, yet people have faith in it, but people act like the Neb system is completely doomed/ irredeemable because of how it's currently implemented in GMS when it could definitely become non-P2W with some minor tweaks. They don't have to replace eachother either, because that was never even officially the reason (until someone official on the team says so and updates/ amends the last official statement as to why they were not added) so that argument is irrelevant.
