Well, just recently I pug`d an arena match and got faced with a premade S.O.B. Lets say the match was all but one sided. Besides them using everything from lockbox ships to heavens knows what, they too used what Hilbert would call overpowered consoles.

So Pax and everyone else, in case of the so-called "fairness": Was it really nessecary for them to use all that p2w, when they kinda knew before the match even started that they would win without breaking a sweat?

Simple answer is simply yes. Why not? It gives them the purchased advantage coupled with existing broken or exploitable mechanics availble. It boosts their ego and shows them high numbers after the match. Good for them! Bad for us.

So the next question would be: Would they for next time play fair? Again, why should they?
They payed good money to stay on top and with the best ships and equipment out there, and no self-righteous player is going to tell them what they cant do!

So comes the problem how one is going to enforce "fairness" when people are so hopelessly dependent on the p2w, that they will fight tooth and nail to defend it.

So in all REALISM, people would do themselves a huge favour to not mix pvp and fairness in the same sentence, cause pvp is not about being fair. Is about winning and having fun! Even if that fun is on the expense of the opponents.
