KurtzPel Team Issues an Apology for P2W Mechanics

KurtzPel Team Issues an Apology for P2W Mechanics - MMORPG.com

KurtzPel hasn't been in Early Access for much more than a week, but it's been a rough one with a number of issues involving accusations of pay-to-win mechanics across a number of items that were being sold for premium currency. The lengthy letter goes into detail about what developers will be doing to remove those concerns.

Some of the items players were complaining about & what's being done include:

  • Blazing Fist and Diablolic Witch Karmas will be free, core content. Addressing players' concerns, developers wrote, "This goes against our core belief that KurtzPel should not be Pay-to-Win, and it was apparent that we’ve failed to demonstrate this belief."
  • Those who had purchased Karma DLC such as mentioned above will be compensated
  • players will be able to redistribute stats for in-game currency
  • Advanced Supply Boxes and Basic Supply Boxes will be able to be purchased with both AP and CP

In addition, the dev team has assured players that technical issues will be resolved and encouraged them to keep reporting bugs and other problems.

Lastly, the EU release date is coming on June 5th and the Asian server will launch on July 3rd.
