Im just glad 30+ year old people still play video games . When I was younger I always thought that around 30 you HAVE to stop playing video games because there's simply no time anymore. So I played as much as I could (neglecting my studies in the process) because I had this belief that my time to play games was limited. Now I know it's only limited by my lifespan.
I agree premium needs to be buffed but you're missing the problem everyone has with Pay2Win as a whole. I was kinda agreeing with your post until you got to the costumes with stats. You see people dont have an issue giving money to the game for a non cosmetic edge. But, the issue with allowing this is that the game gets dominated by those who have the ability to throw some thousands of dollars at the game every month. There are people out there who are filthy rich, and there are people out there working minimum wage jobs. Its bad enough that the REAL WORLD is already Pay2Win (more money = more power) but it becomes really unappealing in video games.
I like the route MapleStory 2 is taking , i hope it works out in the end. If you like to whale, might I suggest Elsword? Where there are $100, costume weapons that are basically required if you want to be competetive at all.
