This would be a PERFECT sandbox HARDCORE MMO if not for one thing - Pay2Win system. How lame is that? Just make it a monthly subscription or make people buy the game, but none of this iPhone "in-app purchases" sh**. It makes the game casual and lame. What gives? 

Keep on rockin'!

No pay2win at all !! Everything in the shop can also be obtained in the game

(except for cosmetics)

 

Still a very good game, all we need is more active players :p

Many P2W games allow players to purchase cash shop items from other players.   If the game sells items that give players an advantage, then it is P2W.  

 

In other words, if a game has a cash shop it is P2W.

Has Pay2Win become some new meme or something?  In the last few weeks alone, I have seen so many people use this term.  Of course, the majority (OP included) have no clue what the term means lol.

When almost every single cash shop game pushes supremacy goods as their primary source of revenue, then it is only natural that players would prefer to use an appropriate acronym to describe the gameplay.
