Cryptic Talks About Pay-To-Win

agree 100%. There's something about the idea of making an entire Race only available via pay that is funky to me. Then again, it will ensure that the drow are rarer in the world, thus preserving the lore a little bit....

I'm very pleased with this response. Gives me a lot of confidence in the near future of this game.

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