Cryptic Talks About Pay-To-Win

The Neverwinter development team from Cryptic Studios took some time out to answer questions at a recent press event. ZincCryptic (which we assume is Craig Zincievich, Chief Operating Officer) discussed Cryptic and Perfect World Entertainment's philosophy concerning pay-to-win models. (PC)

Cryptic should the the last to talk about P2W with their history.
