Is this game still pay to win?

Recommended Posts

Haven't played for a couple years and just remembered that this game exists. Is it worth returning to? My focus would be pvp. When i quit one of the main reasons was broken arena. Nobody used 5x5, except guilds exploiting the system by fighting their own guildmates for GP.  And you could just buy tournament ranks with miracle coins. For example player A with 300 wins and 100 losses was ranked higher than player B with 200 wins and 100 losses. Obviously player A is very bad and only has 33% win rate, player B is average at 50% win rate but A has higher rank because he bought more tickets. What's the point of even having a "tournament" like that? Just make a leaderboard of miracle coin purchases. Has this been fixed somehow or is wallet still more important than skill?

Many things have changed, even in arena. I have no idea of what kind of experience you had, that made you angry enough to quit the game. All I'll say then is try to check by yourself dude. And make your own idea about it! :good:

The thing that made me quit was "pay to win" business model which most smartphone multiplayer games have. I like to play competetive games like CS:GO, Overwatch, Dota, LoL on my PC where your rank/mmr depends entirely on your skill, you can spend $1000s there but a better player will still beat you because you can't buy things that ruin gameplay, only cosmetic stuff.

I logged in and found out that you can still buy the #1 spot in arena which isn't fun and there's no challenge so cya in 2 more years if this game is still alive. Don't get me wrong, this game is fun, i like the nostalgic graphics, combat and open world pvp but the fact that you can literally buy tournament wins just ruins gameplay and any competetive aspect. 

 

Anyone knows any non-p2w mmos for android with some pvp?

Actually you might not come back to the game even after 2 years, because this system will never change

 

and for non-p2w mmorpg's there are none.... sorry but that's the truth and if there are then the game is not free to play

There are many non-p2w mmos on PC but you're right, they're mostly buy to play or have a monthly fee which is still much better than p2w because at least you have fair gameplay there (WoW, Guild Wars 2, ESO...). Only free ones that come to mind right now are Wildstar which is dead/dying and PoE which is similar to an mmorpg but it's action rpg.

 

Seems like you're right about mobile games though where cash shops make otherwise decent games bad. I can deal with things like exp boosts or whatever that simply allow you to progress faster but buying places on leaderboards is just too much.
