I doubt they would go that far considering that would ruin the actual game experience for players, whereas the current immortals just get out-of-game perks or cosmetic stuff that doesnt really deter nons from playing. If they were to go full blown pay to win they would lose most non-ranks and new players which means less people to buy ranks in the future which is just worse for them in every regard. And as much as I kind of feel scummed by the easy exp these people get, I really don't care as long as it makes the quality of gameplay better in the end. It can be argued that this is a slippery slope, but honestly ill draw the line when it actually becomes pay to win- until then I really couldn't care less as long as it contributes to our dev power. (And I know some have said stuff about clans becoming pay to win but I don't play that game so I really can't speak on that) That said, I agree it's pretty unprofessional to make false claims or pump out constantly denied ideas; it just overall does not make a good image for the server- it makes production and ideas seem really disconnected and dysfunctional. However, I can live with that if the server ends up being better because of it.
