[Feature] Remove P2W from Warlander
There are 4 items in the cash shop that offer competitive advantages in game. I have attached a screenshot of each item including descriptions.
These items allow you to level faster, get more or better items faster, or reroll items to have more desirable perks on your gear. Only 1 can be bought with the in-game currency that you get from playing. The rest can only be purchased by spending real money.
I realize these items are not on the level of Diablo Immortal or EA Sports Ultimate Team games. They do offer a competitive advantage for real money though and there is no argument against it.
I ask PLAION to remove the 3 boosters from the game and remove the ability to buy Aura Crystals for real money.
IMHO as soon as a game adds these features it makes me think the game is designed to make me spend money. That is to say that the developers have an incentive to make the game feel slow enough for people to want to dip into their pockets in order to maintain their power vs other players. On behalf of all gamers please remove p2w.
THIS IS ESSENTIAL. My entire community and I, along with any distant friends have zero interest in the game beyond the beta if the pay to win items that offer a competitive advantage in the game are not removed. Paid items should be exclusively cosmetics. If those items remain, they should be turned into something that is bought ONLY with the silver coins you earn as you play, rather than the gold coins you pay for with real money.
100% agree. Without these items, you’re basically at a competitive disadvantage. The whole game could make plenty of money by simply offering a rotating variety of skins and other things which don’t affect gameplay/offer competitive advantage.
On behalf of all gamers?
Please, You can never have enough authority to speak for all gamers
All this stuff reduces the grind.
You just choose to spend money instead of spending time.
If you can spend time instead of money, It is not P2W
If no amount of time can ever replace advantages of paying, Then that's P2W.
This game has in-app purchases, don't be like every other game and lock stuff behind payments, allow players to earn stuff just by playing the game as an alternative.

I dont see how the crystals would be considered pay to win when you can only buy them once every 24 hours with silver or gold! and the only thing i could even see close to being anything your talking about is the one that increases how rare the item is. and even that isn't anything. people need to understand that the gear doesn't make you strong. does it help..... sure not nearly as much as people think. you can out skill a max level character with a no star / 1 star character. just takes a little bit of skill thats for sure. but i can disagree that this is p2w and that is my opinion. put in the time. paying is optional.... you play more you earn more simple as that.. payment is just an option. the boosters dont block you from playing the game in any way.
> I dont see how the crystals would be considered pay to win when you can only buy them once every 24 hours with silver or gold!
Because you pay for them... and they let you reroll the stats to be optimal.
It is very unlikely you even get the gear piece you want, let alone with the optimal RNG stats. Being able to reroll to optimal stats is a theoretical HUGE time save.
In practice the perks are generally reasonably balanced, which mitigates this somewhat but it is still definitely buying power quicker.
> people need to understand that the gear doesn't make you strong
Well actually, it does. That is the point. The gear makes you stronger. That's why there's a point system attached to titles. To balance out higher rarity gear making you stronger.
Saying "oh just play better than them" is so asinine. If you could pay to have better starting loadouts in CSGO people wouldn't find it acceptable because a better player can still outplay someone.
They do not hurt me personally, but all in for ONLY cosmetics
Make Boosters only available through Silver/Quests/Battle Pass (Free Version)
Remove the % Increase to drops throughout the battle pass. If you buy up to level 100 early on it's a 30% increase to your drops for the next 90 days, that's absurd and it shows based on how many people already have level 5 spells.
This is not pay to win, it's pay to progress. Please learn the difference. Downvoted.

This is as others have stated pay to progress *faster* and as such is not P2W. They need to make money somehow for the game to stay alive and I'd very much like the game to stay alive. Boosters are one of the most innocuous ways to do that. Once proper ranked matchmaking kicks in you'll only be paired against enemy teams more along your skill level, which will likely translate to players with similar levels of skills, characters, and gear anyway so someone using boosters won't likely affect you if you don't. I think it's fine to keep this in. If the Battlepass gives such massive long term boosts, that's what needs adjusting - not these booster potions.
Definitely pay to win. It’s makes me not what to suggest this game to friends. I hate the monetization in this game. Experience boosters specifically since you are forced to level up each character individually. And the adding a character slot with real money turns me off from the game.
