Everything in STO can be earned just by playing, so "pay to win" is incorrect anyway, at least if it is supposed to imply that the only way to get all that stuff was by spending real money.
I say, let us drop the whole notion of P2W existing in STO. If you don't like a given console, fighter pet, ship ability, and what have you, why not just explain how those mechanics affect the game negatively, in your opinion, than just criticizing that there is a real-world-money-way to get it?
Ithink its funny when people in bug ships cry about P2W lol. How much does the bug ship cost.
A good subject to debate I think.
A Jhas is a P2W ship kind of .It has better specification than other escorts by far.
(As I told before I think it is ok to be so)
If you use some consoles available in game you can stop and disable the Jhas for a couple of seconds and make the fight more equal.
Both Jhas and P2W consoles are available to anybody who wants to pay their price so in my opinion it is o.k to use both .Why condemn one and justify the other?
In my opinion everything which part of the game is legit to use .
Why should somebody agree to be blow into pieces from a bug and not use a console to try to avoid that ?
This better not be the one in a p2w fleet defiant and said no p2w fight and brings that to a fight vs a advanced escort with tranphasic mines/breen torp and talks all kinds of nonsense. YES FLEET SHIPS ARE P2W moduals are z store so don't be hating on bugs there champ!
