    You're forgetting that EA sells fuck tons of novelty shit too. Nah, Simu has them beat. By a long shot. Just a lot fewer numbers in GS so it doesn't seem as bad.

Someone kitted out with paid festival items has a radically different experience from someone using off-the-shelf or player-made items. Also, keep in mind that if you've ever bought items from these festivals via silver, you're still participating in the p2w system, albeit indirectly. Someone paid cash for those items, even if it wasn't you.
    To me, buying exp or levels would be p2w. Someone buying a claidhmore with extra weighting and death flares or whatever when you're already chopping heads off fine with a regular claid is just being a dumbass.

    P2W imo is the game basically coming to a standstill and being effectively impossible to advance without forking over more cash, i.e. Simu changes leveling up so that it takes 10,000,000 exp to gain a level now, but if you buy this exp pass from the Simucoin store it will only require 100k to level up. You can still technically level up without it, but now it's going to take you such an extreme amount of time and grinding that it's not worth it so you either buy an exp pass or quit the game.

    Spending a ton of cash on some overpowered item that you can do fine without as long as you're not a tard, not so much.

    And even though it goes without saying, anyone who disagrees is racist.

    Then nothing EA does is P2W either.

    I've never had to pay extra to Simu to be able to roll up X new class. Unless you count Savants, which I'm having my lawyer subpoena Simu's IP right now to prove that Savants don't exist.

    I think monks aren't allowed under F2P, so there is that.

    prime is P2W

    So anything above prime is just paying more to win the win you already won.

    I think it is hard to say anything is P2W in GS because there isn't really shit to win. Don't mistake it, EA wishes they could have Simu's business model on a far larger scale. Yearly pay festivals? Selling fluff private houses for a grand? Marriages for $200? I mean, EA sells some weapon skins and people go ballistic.
