About Pay to Win

29 Jul

If you play a Pay to Win game, you are a stupid person. It’s blunt, it’s offensive, but it’s also the truth.

Let’s put it into perspective. I have always said, this particular model is like authorized cheating, and people agreed. But so far I have struggles to pin down a perfect metaphor. Let’s say you’re playing Football, and you’re up against a team at their home ground. There’ll be definitely be some officiating favor going for  the home team. But that’s part of the game right? That’s how it has always been for sports. So what’s wrong with cheating at games? That’s because the official favoring a home team is like those old day game cheat codes, nobody likes to talk about it, and it happens under the radar. Pay to Win is like FIFA announcing because one team paid them a handsome amount, the game shall begin at 5-0 to them.

If you’re playing a Football match that started as 5-0 against you,  you’re a mentally disabled person. And whatever you’re doing, it’s not sport. And same way, if you’re playing something that’s Pay to Win, whatever that is, that’s not a game. And don’t say it’s fun nonetheless. Would you enjoy a football game starting at 5-0? Stop giving those developers your money.
