I haven't played LoL myself, but I've heard that it takes ages to buy the champions with ingame currency. To me, it is also a pay to win concept if it just takes way too long to buy things with ingame currency instead of cash. Or, in free to play shooters, if you're required to play at least 4 to 6 hours a day in order to have enough ingame currency for your equipment.

Yeah but you can instantly buy a champion with cash, whereas a non-cash player has to wait ages to buy one. This is broken because you can just buy whatever hero is retard-OP at the time.

There are plenty of things you can buy other than guns. Increased max ammo, holiday stuff, outfit crap, the shouts ("Stay and protect", "Base 1", "Cover me", ect.), squads, bombs, consumables, jet pack.

I'm saying that those COULD be purchased. They aren't going to keep the shop the same. Shouldn't even act like they will.

Well, they're planning on closing Zone PC so yes, the store will remain the same.

But to Stefan and Unixmad letting trials play for free without limitations is worse than cancer.

You know that Zone is actually free to play? There is no observer mode or anything like that. It was a first try of free-to-play, and the player number didn't really decrease because of items, it was just not attracting the player base. Zodiac and Era have more persistency and content for players who don't want to play events all the time.

You made it free-to-play after you killed it with P2P restrictions that we all told you not to do. Even now you have to deal with some restrictions (squadleader) and cash still buys good guns. Non-P2P players still can't even wear guild tags or mass message (because they're considered trials).

Zone could try to go off the playerlist for a while and comeback as a Classic server to get some players, but I don't know if that's likely to do anything at this point.

Zone was never about events, it was about constant action. Can't have that without players, and now that they're gone...well...you're better off replacing Zone with iZone.

Zone went F2P after you already destroyed it. The reason why it couldn't keep a playerbase was because the direction you pushed Zone in was stupid.
