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.

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.
