I'm sorry, but I find the current outrage totally stupid. I understood when people were outraged over value packs (near-mandatory power items) introduced to the game, but this is just silly.
The community accepted that people can buy a pet, a costume or a value pack (from now on: power items) from the item shop and these items constitute advantage over not buyers. If the community wouldn't accept these, everyone were already quit by now and there were no one to protest. So we can conclude that buying "power items" were grudgingly accepted as "tolerable pay to win".
So someone please explain me why
- Adam buying power item is in the cash shop is acceptable
- Betty farming silver in game is acceptable
- Adam getting the silver from Betty in exchange for the power item on the marketplace BAD BAD BAD PAY TO WIN!
PS: thanks to Rohan for his blogsaving tip.
