Quote from: Metan on Nov 09, 2023, 10:18 PMIt seemed like they wanted to bleed Nova dry and it scared a lot of server owners, some who even closed doors, who feared for their financial lives... and nothing happened. Somehow they were satisfied with a simple C&D and did not go any further; they didn't even bother glancing at other servers, even though reports were sent through official channels (I know at least two people who did, out of sheer spite). The message is clear: they don't actually give a toss about private servers, they're just interested in showing, legally, that they have been defending their IP.It might happen again in the future, assuming they don't go bankrupt, because they're far too incompetent to come up with another successful game to milk; and it stands to reason that, just like this time, it will be a nothing burger.
Quote from: PowRO on Nov 13, 2023, 05:04 AMIt's clear that we're plagued by it nowadays, with servers full of microtransactions, but there's tons of servers out there that take literally no donations (zero), you just have to look for them.
Quote from: Felione on Nov 13, 2023, 09:05 PMThose servers, for some odd reason, decide to also exclude P2W items from their database, which most people still prefer. It's a strange ideology, because the ones who do not ask for donations, usually form some sort of vanilla content. It's the most farfetched cycle that continues to fail miserably.
Quote from: Sachimi on Nov 27, 2023, 11:13 AMJust curious, but why do people think that the definition of "P2W" has changed to include donations that don't give you an advantage?
Quote from: Playtester on Nov 27, 2023, 12:50 PMNow if you could only buy untradable costumes, then that's not P2W, even by modern definition of the term.
Quote from: 2k2 on Nov 27, 2023, 02:03 PMExactly.Nobody complains about cash shop. If servers want to to sustain the project through donations, that's fine, but put them untradeable.People complain about anything on cashshop being tradeable, because that means you could literally start playing a 10 years old server and within 10 minutes become the richest player in the server, if you have the money (or are simply stupid enough to support greedy pigs like p2w server owners).Any server allowing direct or indirect exchange of real-world money to tradeable currency or zeny is p2w. It's basically am official RMT done by the server itself.Using the excuse "but you can acquire it ingame too!!!" is the stupidest thing ever because it's totally the same thing taking hours/days/years to acquire something some rich/stupid kid could get in seconds, right?
Quote from: Sachimi on Nov 28, 2023, 08:56 AMRegardless, to me, the defintion of P2W only means "paying for something that gives you an advantage, that otherwise cannot be acquired". Period. These salty donkey arguments are never going to change my mind about it. I can only come to the conclusion that people changed the definition because they're jealous/salty about other people having money. I've never spent any money at all on RO ever in my 20 years of playing, but I don't have this kind of whiny attitude.
