Albion Online Interesting P2W and PVP convo

I recently had a good conversation with a co worker about PVP, gameplay and Pay to win. It was a very interesting conversation that made me think about a lot of things and gave me a better perspective on how others think.

 

Here's how the conversation went.

 

(me) I love pvp games, but i hate how a person can come into a game and drop a few bucks to get a super weapon/gear. He then wins every fight against me because they have a better weapon/gear that i can't seem to get around.

 

But you have to agree that a person who spends the money should have better gear, they are paying for an advantage in the game.

 

(me)Only an advantage against those who do not pay for the gear. If I could get the gear without having to pay, but rather after days/months of farming for it. would you still buy it.

 

Probably not, I dropped thousands to get the best gear and to be the best, if you could get the same gear, i don't think it would be worthwhile. Not unless it was so hard to get that the likely hood of you getting it was really not probable.

 

(me)Do you generally fight against other with the same gear as yourself.

 

Not really, I don't generally run into others who are as geared as myself.

 

(me) I don't really find it a challenge to win against people who are under geared as compared to myself. They tend to just be cannon fodder. I take it you don't have a problem with this since, most everyone is under geared as compared to you.

 

***Its not that I chose to be over geared, They have the same opportunity to spend the same $ and get the same gear, its them that chose not to become as geared as myself. So i don't have any problem with it. Its their choice.

 

(me) What if everyone paid the $ and had the same gear as you. Would it still be fun.

 

I don't think it would be as fun, But I know that others are not going to pay that much for the gear. So I will always have the advantage.

It was the starred statement that stuck me oddly - I find that I pay $ to games to continue its funding, not to have the best gear. I do like to see things in game that are rewards, but not game changers. Like the Albion Online Gold/Albion Online Silver wreath on founder icons or the founders statues. The legendary founder ox and horse are huge buffs to the starting player, but aside from getting a good start. I don't believe that they will have a big impact a month from release for new players aside from helping the new player get an easier start. (at release they can and are going to be game changers for how land control plays out - think of if hammer and sickle had no founder horses/oxen and vendetta did.... )

This has the same effect as many games before Albion Online where traveling is simplified

It nullifies so many things Albion Online is suppose to have going for it. The world becomes so much smaller and territory so much more insignificant.
