Asmongold wants MMO players to unite and stop pay-to-win microtransactions

After getting fed up with “pay-to-win” microtransactions in MMOs like Lost Ark, Asmongold wants players to band together to entice developers to stamp it out.

Asmon has said that MMOs have had pay-to-win elements for a while. In his verdict on Lost Ark, he said it was one of the culprits alongside World of Warcraft, but admitted both games were still fun.

However, his frustration reached new heights after Amazon Games added the Argos Abyss raid to Lost Ark, which many saw as a pay-to-win. He claimed they were losing players because of it and threatened to expose other pay-to-win concerns if they didn’t do something about it.

Now he’s gone one step further, asking MMO players to band together to end pay-to-win microtransactions from plaguing games once and for all, claiming they shouldn’t be treated any differently than NFTs.

Asmon has been open about Lost Ark’s pay-to-win elements.

“I wish player bases could get together and say they don’t like this and just shut it down,” he said. “I know this is a losing battle. That’s why I don’t really care. I don’t focus on it that much anymore.”

“For WoW tokens, it’s pay-to-win. A bunch of stuff pays off to win. In Lost Ark you have to pay a million items to win. People just don’t really care anymore.”

However, he believes that may change.

“I wish players would be treated with Pay to Win the same way they treat NFTs. If that happened, video games would be a lot better in general. If they treated microtransactions the same way they treat NFTs, that would be so much better.”

Pay-to-win microtransactions have become a huge part of the MMO experience. However, if anyone has the power to rally MMO players and encourage developers to make them less of a problem, it would be Asmon.

As a veteran MMO player who also happens to be one of the most popular streamers on Twitch, his sphere of influence is immense. Still, it’s a tall order that will require thousands – maybe even millions – of players to keep up with.
