Does Ragnarok Online 2 have a pay to win system? I’ve asked around about this and the best answer I’ve been able to come up with is “in a sense, yes, but nothing drastic.” I ask this because Ragnarok features a VIP system, similar to that found in games like Age of Wushu, where players can pay in for some perks. Unlike those games, however, Ragnarok cuts straight to the point by offering straight stat perks: +5 to stats, +10% health, +10% sp, and +20% movement speed.
I ask because the opinion seems pretty split between people who are calling it pay to win, although virtually none of them are speaking from any actual experience playing the game, and people who are playing and stating that the bonuses are insignificant to the point where they don’t do much more than keep your character alive another millisecond before they die. So the conclusion I’m seeing on discussion boards is that the system is pay to win, in theory, but in practice isn’t going to break the barrier between lose and win.
Are there any Ragnarok Online 2 players who can clear this up for us?
