1. It speeds up power creep. This pushes the extremes of balancing.

2. It eats up a lot of dev time making the next power creep.

3. It encourages gambling via lotto boxes.

4. While you may not pay for it someone does.

5. There are now tiers of P2W which aren't balanced, and there's unbalances intra tiers of P2W.

6. People play games for fun, not to grind ie work. PvPers, don't like having to grind PvE all the time.

7. It gates new players from being as compatative as they could/should be, since they now have to grind for doffs, ships, sets, P2W consoles, etc.

8. 1-7 drives players from PvP resulting Cryptic Mgt having a pretext to not invest in PvP.
