Hi, thank you for putting the list together. I wanted to keep you up to date on our guild. Now that Official launch has been announced "Fog Mafia" is still recruiting and active on NAE. Was also wondering if you could add the Content Creators and Social tags into the spread sheet as well.
Thank you again~
GMS2 will probably have similar P2W aspects as it predecessor has. For Nexon to find a balance between P2W and the community opinion, Nexon could implement cash-dependent aspects of GMS2 that do not give a competitive edge.
Such as: cosmetic items, axillary gameplay outside of the mobbing/bossing meta (mini-games, housing, player privileges, pets), grind enhancers (exp boost, drop boost, faster travel, forced mob spawning), cosmetic ability animations, etc.
An improvement from GMS that would be nice to see in GMS2 would be to have less of a P2W presence in the end-game parts of the game. This could be done by reducing the dependence of end-game item stats on cash-based improvements. An alternative would be to implement a system of crafting that has the ability to get top-tier, end-game items to serve as a F2P path to parallel the P2W model.
Let me know what you all think of these ideas, maybe we help foster a change in GMS2 to make the game experience better for everyone!
More Yay Less
There should be no stat advantages by paying nor HUGE time saved (It is fine to have a slight exp/drop boost but if the only sane way to get to min/max is spend years vs spend cash then that's not good).
Nexon should stick to what you stated, cosmetics and such without stats and make the game more apealing to more people by keeping it fair to all.
