I did not say that it is “easy”, did I?
I just said they have better chances to get powerful items which entertains them and makes it “easier” than non-paying players usually have it.
So TS cannot give out an absolute advantage as then all free players would leave cause they had no chance against paying players.
And once only (or at least mostly only) paying players would be left there would not be any advantage for the players paying a little cause the other more paying players would have the advantage.
Hence those little paying players would leave.
Afterwards the medium paying players would leave in turn for the same reason and finally with no players paying less than them the heavily paying players would leave.
Therefore such and absolute advantage cannot be given.
But an advantage like the premium box/premium pack only release powerful L-M items which paying players have higher chances to get still makes it easier for paying players cause they have more chances to get those items.
That is the point I meant.
And that is also the point the opening posts was about cause paying players he met in PvP had all those fancy items while he is stuck not getting any of those items from his drops.
So my comment was meant to explain that it is only natural for TS to do so as any other company does it, too, cause they offer their services to earn money after all.
