Every so often I see someone or another post some less then kind remarks as to players who are “Pay to Win” whereas they themselves are true Free to Play players who haven’t spent even a dollar on the game. The thing is although some people may binge and overspend that shouldn’t diminish the overall positive effect on the game. Imange poor @Nimhain, @Sirrian, or @Andrew, all possibly with families going into work every day for 6-16 hours and not actually making any money to pay the bills. Would anyone reading this post willingly pass up a paying job for another that doesn’t pay the bills? This Monday I got a gift from the developers, 30 gems because at some point this week the game will be down as they switch to new servers to improve our gaming experience. Call me crazy, but these new and hopfully better servers, I think someone charged them to make and install them. That’s like… Well however much a server cost to make and install. I am greatful to the Gems Of War team for keeping the thing I hate most out of it… Ads, quite honestly I really don’t have the desire to watch The Terminator mobilize a strike team before and/or after every invasion. Cause without people paying real money to actually support a game they do enjoy then without Ads there would have been no way to pimp out them fancy new servers and many other drawback @Nimhain, @Sirrian, and @Andrew, have bits falling off their cars, rents that need to be paid, and a powerful need to eat sometime this month (thumbs up to he who can tell me where that reference is from) I am at VIP level 9, my three best teams though, didn’t cost me a dime, they are
2: alchemist/green seer(glory)/
3: Jarl (glory key)/rocket/rocket/rocket
These teams I unlocked in a free to play manner and they are all very good. But even if they were unbeatable and perfect I would still buy something every so often, so that the amazing developers behind this game can know that I support them and the effort the put into it, and so they can afford to kick there second jobs so that can hammer out all the amazing details of the wonderful 2.0… Seriously, what’s the machanic’s last trait? I need to know, it’s a medical thing.
All resources in this game are earnable, even premium Gems via guild taskes and kingdom tribute so all the “Game Supporters” really pay for is less time spent grinding.
In conclusion I respect that some players are true Free to Play players and I respect that it makes the random pulls soooooo much sweeter, but if you are Free to Play don’t cast down the player who do support the game cause if everyone were free to play then if we were unlucky there would be no game, and if we were very unlucky we would keep the game with this:
Feel free to feed into the conversation, we all enjoy the game, can’t we just get along?
