Free2Play [F2P] - Right to free participation.
Pay2Win [P2W] - This is when paying players receive unfair competitive advantages that cannot be achieved with activity.
This is exactly what most of your players are looking for - fair conditions for participation
If the payers have better conditions, they have to fight for different prizes!
There must be different groups according to different financial possibilities! So that the game can be fair and fun for everyone
You probably need to rethink your business model.
But your model must include good fair conditions for free players.
Because they are the life of your game. Because those who pay will come from them!
Your model must include good, fair conditions for ALL players!
But by no means forget the high quality of the product!
