Really P2W isn't about you or whatever you buy.
Its not going to make the game better let me explain, I've not bought any pay 2 win for months did the game get any better? Simple answer no.
Its the same bull**** from the developers more Pay2Win gets released more ships become released sure you win some if you buy them, small edges entire ship full of crap and sure your gonna beat the pugs if you have them but, I think this is the first real ship that is going to have it all its a science ship with perfect shields that can run really good damage skills from auxiliary cannons. But in its purest form this game is getting worse the consoles they release aren't any fun and the grind they add in season 7 is quite frankly horrid. People leaving this game because pvp feels like isn't worth anything and your forced to pvp isn't a joke It really start to feel like developers are actually pushing people away from pvp.
