Among the players, some people cannot physically donate their work and the rest of the time to conquer virtual worlds. It was for such an audience that the pay-to-win MMORPG projects appeared. The name “pay-to-win” says it all: you can use real money to ensure successful activities within the game. Despite the criticism from the side of ordinary players, this distribution model has its demand, since it allows to save a lot of time. For example, you can instantly get all the necessary equipment, skills, and consumables, which others can only get for hours of grind.

More about Pay to Win MMORPG

Depending on the specific project, a pay-to-win MMORPG can vary significantly in its range in the so-called premium store and starting from the expendable modifiers of experience, attacks, amulets for an additional influx of gold and ending with full sets of armor and weapons of several types of pumping and levels. Do not lose sight of the developers and cosmetic accessories: shining decorations on the armor, beautiful pets, effects on the skills of the character, or just some kind of costume. For more significant benefit, also add tools to re-equip the same outfits to other sets of clothes.

Another way to attract funds to pay-to-win MMORPG is an unobtrusive subscription, which provides players with a lot of bonuses, such as daily rewards, reduced pumping fees, auction sales, or a larger backpack capacity. The gameplay designed in such a way that development does not particularly need to subscribe, but it suggests itself by gradually slowing down in gaining experience and money or by the unexpectedly increased difficulty of bosses.

There have been many disputes about which of the projects can be called the most committed to pay-to-win MMORPG, we have identified the most popular ones here. In Archeage there is an expanse for players with any wallet size, especially for fans of constant battles and in-game events. To this, you can add a few hundred costumes, weapons and armor, the ability to move even on ships and gliders and a completely open world for PvP, regardless of faction or race.

Another project, called RF Online, may well be called a pay-to-win MMORPG because the local assortment for donate affects the balance quite strongly. The so-called Cash Shop allows players to get equipment with 6 or 7 inlaid stones, which is a rarity for average people and achieved with a great deal of time. There is another way to invest in character development - through a premium subscription. It allows you to change the aggression of monsters to the avatar, antigrav, unique accessories, and even opens up the opportunity to play in two windows. The rest is the usual Korean MMORPG with elements of grind and an abundance of raids with clan battles.
