Im actually doing f2p right now untill I figure out how to buy Ncoin from where I live overseas heh. But yeah I think its fine how it is, you arent locked out from any content ala Archeage, and theres really no way to buy your way to the top with Credit card Power as in so many other games; Archeage, Age of Wushu, Silkroad online, Knight online, Conquer Online, 12sky and 12sky2, etc etc. if you want to know what Pay to win is, THOSE games are pay 2 win (especially Wushu, you can just straight up drop like $20-30K on the game and instantly become God lol, there's a reason why only about 200 people still play it now.) Premium is REALLY fair in my opinion. Its surprising how fair it actually is in comparison to what they could have done (and gotten away with) although its not surprising that NCsoft has done such a good job with this, as theyve had experience with experimenting with this way back in the Guild Wars １days (Hammer Warrior/Elementalist ftw ) I actually look forward to buying a lto of the cosmetic stuff when they bring it out. That kind of thing is a GOLD MINE, get the right artists to make the right kinds of cosmetics and you`re printing money!
