I view the fact that Wakfu is P2P as a good thing. First of all I don't trust F2P games because they tend to either not stick around long because the dev teams run out of money, or they have lots of pay to win items that allow you to just spend money to get powerful stuff.
Additionally like it or not the P2P nature of Wakfu ensures that the community stays tighter and higher quality in my opinion. I mean look at the immature, trolling, hateful community of F2P games like League of Legends. Sure they may have huge player bases but frankly their playerbase is horrible.
With regard to the grind yeah I agree that it can be frustrating, but that frustration just makes success all the sweeter when you finally finish your set, or when you finally beat a tough boss that you had trouble with. Wakfu (and its counterpart Dofus) are designed to keep you busy for years if you desire to be the absolute best and get 100% completion of all content.
It's a different kind of game compared with most F2P MMORPG's which have a young, immature playerbase that is impatient and wants to reach max level in a couple months tops. Wakfu and Dofus seem to me to be aimed at older gamers who have money and don't mind dropping $60 a year on subscription. We also don't mind relaxing and taking our time leveling up over a couple years.
To me there is so much more satisfaction in playing a game like Wakfu where you level up slowly, building reputation, skill at team synergy, and friendships in a tight knit, more mature community, compared with huge F2P games where you just focus on leveling to get super powerful, not necessarily the people you are leveling with.
Everybody that played WoW knows that your comment is wrong.
There is no different in player base between F2P and P2P.
There will be always hacker, bots, flamer, griefer, ...
LoL has the same amount of people this kind then WoW.
Money is not a barrier to keep this people away.
Because they will always find away.
It is so easy it is to pay with mobile phone or paypal.
Wakfu asia plays the same way like all other wakfu server only with more players and the freedom to decide when you want invest money in it. You can give them more money if you think they deserve it or if you have higher income.
You never feel like you got cheated.
