It kinda is still time and effort. In order to afford the boosters, you need to work hard to earn zulies via farming of any sort.
Btw you made the same kind of discussion on proposal thread. I'm not sure why this was created again, but oh well.
Leonis created this thread to get feedback on whether or not he should implement the system he has already prepared to remove Boosters/Item Mall items (such as infinite HP jellys/stews) from TG. So far there are many supporters and many players still asking why change it? But I really do not see any logical arguments of why this shouldn't be changed.
99% of the stuff you say is not relevant - tg is the place where it's a free for all and use what you want! That's how it should be, if you wanna buy boosters etc then do - if not don't, they are not forcing you to.
Also there would be no game without any income and I know for sure - boosters / aruas / eggs etc are a very good income for them and I don't see any reason to change it
Just players who can't handle it that cry about it
It actually is relevant if you spend the time reading the thread.
The argument isn't that TG is an open place to do whatever you please, it's that boosters are disallowing everyone a fair chance to fight in TG because of boosters. As I and others have stated before plenty of times, boosters essentially limit the pvp in TG to Raiders and Scouts because 1) their damage becomes too high 2) they have stealth. This is a problem because clerics are unable to survive meaning no other classes can survive because they can't get healed in wars. Why would anyone support pvp like this? It's not good for the game. It's not good for new players to see and experience this. They work very hard leveling new characters and getting gear just to find out they can't compete in TG because they are not the right class and also they have to purchase boosters to compete.
You may say TG is not a big deal, but really it is in terms of fun in Rose Online. It has always been a huge part of Pvp, even when Union Wars was around, but I'm assuming you either don't do PVP or you're a newer player. It's now even more important because of the lack of population, AA's aren't always able to get the 30 player requirement to do PVP and CD is too laggy, meaning TG is the only place players go to pvp, 1v1, war, etc... but like I said, this is all ruined by Boosters.
Boosters are claimed to be "cheap" but also claimed to be a huge source of income for the game? That doesn't even make sense. Rose shouldn't have a pay to kill players temporarily system.
1) I personally can handle fights with boosters because I am a raider but I do not boost (not because I can't afford it because I can) but because it isn't a fair form of PVP and it's not fair for the game or community to have this kind of system.
2) I'm sorry me and plenty of other supports are trying to improve the quality of the game by returning it to it's old meta of PVP.
3) Please read through the thread before making claims that I and others have explained before.
