I did not feel like I had to pay to win or get my char to that level. but again, when someone complains about playing a little bit of cash for a game that's free I don't see how in the end there is any difference.
Many people seem to think that when a Free MMO comes out that it is free. But they all fail to understand that it takes servers and bandwidth to run those games. nothing is really free in the end.
Yeah the huge amount of costs Cryptic has incurred deserves respect and consideration. I haven't even played NWO but I play on buying a few smaller items just to thank them for developing a PC MMO. It's not my ideal game of course but I've been reading a lot of good mini-reviews including your getting to lvl 60 seems like a positive vote too.
I agree though that pay2win is a bad PR move and I wont pay for that, but I won't PvP in it..
