It just suddenly crossed my mind.
I remember that in f2p games that focus on pvp, transfer scroll is something that not available all the time in item shop. Simply because it is very easy to break the power balance between fractions the moment it become available and there are quite a few mmo that die off right after a few months they added it, simply because majority went and stack on the strongest fraction thus eliminating any forms of meaningful competition.
P2w by my definition which shared by many other mmo players is as simple as "as long as you can obtain any forms of advantage over other players through monetary means, it is p2w".
through that defintion, gw2 indeed is p2w but due to its low gear cap, it is not a wealth vs wealth level p2w. however, can that be said for transfer since if a person want to, he can spend thousands just to move people.
