actually, i have to admit:no.
I stopped reading after the third sentence, expecting some more general P2W troll post. I apologize.
Now i did, and tbh if you're talking about being equally good, in terms of "real-life" skill, this (imho) would imply the exact same requirements in real life. So both have no money, or both have money.
On the other hand if you got that far, that something like this makes a difference, you should have some friends. Its an MMO.
tldr; Still do not agree. Simply for the ppl with "no money": Selling excess resources for game-time is something i appreciate. You just cant pick rules (dont) you like and say "its p2w".
