Do you notice how every TL, every special event, and on the F2P servers every spell above master, top-tier gear and now even HQ items are all locked behind a gold sub wall? Do you further notice how many extensive pay to win grinds are tacked onto the end game of the F2P live servers? This is all because free players don't pay anything to keep the lights on, and the devs have to eat and the server bills must be paid. News Flash: Free Realms ran its entire lifespan in the red, and as of its shutdown had never even recouped its original development money. Now look what's happening in our own game as I have already pointed out, connect the dots, and stop asking for a free game so ours doesn't get shuttered, too.
