Was reading through the dev tracker where hush said they werent quite sure on the business model for heroes yet because they want to make sure its fair between aerafel and dathura. Its a point I hadnt really taken into consideration and it really makes me think that because of the two business models ankama has this will be a paid feature, atleast until / if aerafel goes f2p.

" How do people actually ENJOY using multiple accounts? Not only does it break the immersion, but it's just plain tedious as hell. With sidekicks [...]"
Is using sidekicks really that much different from using an alt?
But yeah, with such long breaks inbetween actual play time an extra account makes the game more fun

I actually think they'll be able to keep up with it. I think panda has taken longer because of adding Eliotropes aswell, so hopefully revamps can move a little faster while keeping good quality

Hush recently confirmed cra / iops are next in line to receive revamps, but he said he couldnt comment on times. Its likely we wont see them until the beginning of next year as december and january have lots of holidays

and yeah, I think it would be best to do a general class revamp. Thing like +40% damage passives get changed into +x% final damage, atleast until that classes revamp comes around.

Man it's actually so good to know that there is a person on APAC, who fights a good fight for players.
There's quite a few of us, I'm just better at procrastinating ;D

yay...
At this point, I'd rather spend money on a server transfer.

Saying;
"there is nothing wrong with robbing a bank" in response to someone robbing a bank is defending the robbery.
"there is nothing wrong with x celebrity" is defending x celebrity.
etc

Same applies. Its saying theyve done nothing wrong, and might as well keep on doing what theyre doing.

There are still plenty of ways a game can be f2p and not have to sell p2w items. Ive already listed them, but you seem to believe that all these items are costumes.

I dont think you can accurately "inform" anyone on the shop of a company you don't belong to on a server you don't play on.

Remember when they said

" PS: There are also agazillion items you requested in the past and we're working on some items that may interest you - e.g a costume design contest to represent Phaeris (each community has one) and a community mystery box (you choose the items, we put it in a box). These are some things that you can hopefully look forward to in the near future. "

Instead they just released those 4 crappy boxes with class 1 powder.

" Now that is the reality of a free game.... It really is not free.... I've been saying this since day one that Ankama switch to the F2P model...."

your posts date back to october. Of this year. Well after the game went f2p.

"
the 10 percent who will like it are the target customer and they will be making the call, not the righteous 90%."

People have already been leaving or quitting phaeris because of the cashshop. At the moment, the 10% youre talking about just does not exist, ankama is however, trying hard to make it a thing. But lets assume they do exist, what happens when the 90% get fed up asking for server transfers or changes to the shop and just flat out quit. The 10% you talk about rely on being stronger than the average player. With the average player gone, so is the 10%. (and you said I wanted the game to die in 2-4 years u_u)

Isnt her backstory that she was the Sadida god's sex doll that didnt need no man? Which might.. to some extent explain her 'outfit'.

" If you want to have an advantage, then use your wallet..."
You obviously failed to get my point.

" You think a F2P model can survive by selling color change, sex change, no-stat costume, pets and all those sterile novelty items? "
Of course not. But lets conveniently forget about (probably) their most sold / profitable items. Booster packs.

You also say that ankama couldn't sustain themselves if they sold 100 costumes / pets to each player. Lets calculate how much that is. Assuming the costumes are bought with ogrines from the $20 dollar packs, that's $7.50 (yes costumes cost more on wapac) multiple that by 100 and we get a nice $750. Per player. Excluding any booster packs they would have bought. Sounds pretty sustainable to me. Even 10 costumes ($75 per player) seems pretty sustainable to me. Thats almost the cost of a new release game.

Surprisingly enough, just like ingame content, new shop content is pretty much expected as the game evolves and there's plenty they can still add to the shop without having to go p2w. Such as, sidekicks (treacherose still unreleased), those extra character slots, appearance change, unavailable existing costumes, guild customisation / changes, mount costumes, costume dyes, furniture / havenbag sets, inaccessible emotes, mimisymbics and translated dofus / wakfu mags along with their other comics.

The issue isnt so simple.
Ankama wants is to force the model onto the player base and has treated the communities response with zero respect.

It began when they released one costume, +20% damage. What this meant was that power was given to those who could pay for it with irl money. It couldn't be traded for and there was no comparison to the item ingame. As a result the community cried out to have it removed. Ankama acknowledged the feedback by extending the sale time on the item and releasing more stat costumes. There are more, stronger costumes in the database which can give up to 5% critical hits among other stats. This is stronger than a pet, in a slot which normally gives no stats.

Of over 20 phaeris player responses, 0 have ever bought a stat boosting costume. So it seems they want to make them continuously more appealing so that that number will rise.

The fear is here, that costume stats will get to a point where you will be significantly weaker than those who have access to them. And lets face it, you're right. If it gets to a point where people can pay to become stronger they will. The whole thing will spread like a weed. One person buys a costume, so to be equal to him you also have to buy a costume, then it spreads and becomes the norm (just like its normal to have a pet..). We want to stop it before it gets to this point. Before they destroy what costume slots were meant to be for.

Its not just that theyre releasing p2w items either, theyre releasing p2w items instead of other existing items or features, like the appearance change potion or transparent costumes.

All it takes is for you to log in and see that no one is purchasing these items. Speculation is not the way to have a constructive conversation. Your points hold zero substance and I would strongly suggesting researching your own ideas before spouting them as fact. Kthx.
Can another player see what wallet warriors are hiding? Does Wakfu have character page like in Dofus?
The thing is, the p2w items are costumes. The things that are literally visible to everyone.

To be honest Lowwide, I would have assumed the same thing had I not played on wapac.
While I can't communicate with all the nationalities on wapac the overwhelming response is anti-p2w. Even if the statement is true and a whole bunch of asians love the p2w market, theres plenty of other demographics who help fill the server.

Im in the process of filling a survey on the players views to the current shop already with a few dozen responses. It was posted here, but hidden... If you want to take part you can find it on the wapac general discussion forum.

There's the " Gri-gri Primitif" amulet which gives a tri ele damage bonus + cc damage + aoe damage. Doesnt give range though.
