The game has several wow elements which makes it a clone. How big of a clone that is up for discussion i agree.
/puts on best Spanish accent... You keep saying this word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
Maybe I just have a bitter taste in my mouth from the first release of this game, I was a die hard supporter and thought to myself it will get better, this can't be what they are releasing. As such (because I was one at one point) I loath white knighting now. I feel they do nothing but put rose tinted glasses on (and duct tape them on other people). But I feel an apology is due, and so I am sorry for missing the point of your posts and thread. BTW Teras pandas 10x times better than WoWs
It's funny, because I felt exactly the same way that you did when 1.0 released, and I was really pissed when the game didn't improve immediately. I think, however, that you are mistaking white-knighting for general excitement and anticipation. As far as the P2P vs. F2P argument, I and many others have stated it in this thread why we don't like F2P. I like to earn my gear, even just the aesthetic stuff. I don't want to buy it in a cash shop. I also want players that I know will be playing for a long time, not players that will jump ship the second they smell another mmo. Lastly, I don't want to have to pay to get ahead. Cash shops encourage buying XP boosts and other such boosts that I'd rather not even have in game, or if they are there, make them an actual part of the content... like they were in FFXI. So there ya go, I think those are very understandable reasons why I want P2P and not F2P. Based on reading the thread, I know I'm not the only one. Edited, May 17th 2013 8:44pm by BartelX
