And yes those who are willing to spend money on getting the stuff. But as you maybe have noticed not all are willing to do that, or more likely dont have the funds to do it, so they shall get punished for not paying up? Why should the folks who are not willing to pay get shafted by being vastly outperformed? That would only result in the rich winning and the poor losing.

An anlogy in todays USA. Most of the money (consoles) are owned by the 1%. The remainder 99% dont have anything to go by (since they use the standards in the game) and everyday has to suffer and make sure there is food on the table. So what does this picture tell us?

It tells us that the persons defending the payed consoles will get better and have easy wins, while the rest is loosing cause they cant compete on a competitive level by buying an advanatge. In other words said defenders are saying the 99% deserves to get shafted by the 1% cause they dont wanna pay.

What a grim selfish world we live in.
Except that's not how it works. At all. Let's say there are not people willing or able to spend money on this game, as I'm sure there are many. Let's also assume that there are people more than willing to spend money on this game, which I'm also sure there are many. The people that are willing to spend money put their zen up for sale and all the person that doesn't want to spend money has to do is play the game to earn dilithium then convert it on the exchange. Now everyone can buy the P2W stuff and it's an even playing field. This is how the game actually works.

Your claim that only 1% can afford the consoles is complete and utter nonsense. The only way that someone can't afford to buy zen stuff is if they are both unwilling to pay cash for it and unwilling to play the game to earn dilithium for it. If that's the case, I'd have to question what they're doing in STO at all. It's like people on welfare that don't even look for a job, get paid to sit on their butts by the people that actually work, and then complain that they don't have enough money to buy a new car when their neighbor who works 2 jobs just got a new Fiat. It's not fair I tell you!

And I like how you keep ignoring me because my posts actually make sense while yours are based on logical fallacies. It's ok, I understand. It's pretty hard to argue against someone that's actually based in reality.
