This is why micro transaction store are ruining MMo's. People in our highly consumption based society would rather trade money for some perceived leg up. ie, not have to play through a game and get to end game stuff faster.
The problem with this is that it instantly devalues your time spent in game, and you no longer get any time spent on actual tried and true playable content. Instead you have made a f2p game more expensive than a subscription based model.
Everything in the game since before conversion to f2p has been focused on the micro transactions, and that is why after almost 3 years, we have had squat for playable content except for a few short FE's.
If this was a normal sub based model, we would have had a expansion by now with 5 times the so called micro store content, and it would have been astronomically cheaper.
