There are 3 major type of players in my opinion, I listed on the bottom:
Pay to Win - Player
Those player might be out there working in real life for 8, 10, 12 hours a day to earn real money, have other activities in real life, and does not have a lot of time to play the game. But want to play the game. Their only way to progress in game will be paying the cash they earned in real life to earn the gears they wants.

Play to Win - Player
Those that does not spend money in game, but actually spending 8, 10, and 12 hours a day to earn bns gold and grind ingredients for the gears they want. They are the type of player that does not have a lot money in real life but wants to have good gears. So their only way to progress in game will be playing and spending hours and hours on farming/grinding or finding any other way to earn blade and soul gold to progress in game.
Complain to Win - player (least efficient way)
Those that does not want to spend money in game or spend time in game, usually play around 2-3 hours a day, but want end game gears without putting any effort. They are the type of player that you see on forum that complain about this game about Pay-to-Win, it's impossible for free player to win, and need to change price or stuff to be cheaper. Since they are lazy and does not want to put effort into their goal to earn what they want, all they want is the easy way out. Which is complaining, and hope that the game developer change the pricing or ingredient of upgrade to be cheaper or the best will be free for them.
And are there any items in game that you can't get it without spending cash? Only thing i can think of is probably the Hongmoon Gem, but technically you can still earn it with the currency exchange. The exchange rate might be low, due to supply and demand on bns gold and currency. But it's not impossible to get those gem, and then those box is all about Luck. Player that spend cash, does not mean they get it instantly either. Some people get it with one box, some with 300+ box or none at all. And reset dungeon, the NCSOFT does not set that price like overprice. It's reasonable price, if you dont want to slowly earning it with currency exchange, there is always alternative way by buying NCoins. But everything still attainable without spending a single cent.
Not really duplicate, that thread is more like definition of Pay to Win. This is like listingthe 3 major type of player that need to be define. So i just wrote this post as a like a guide or like a overview of the situation.
My thread is 3 major type. You are the same type as me, which is minor type. Those that just enjoy the game, and take it easy and have fun. And occasionally read some forum and so on. There is no point of comparing with others, everyone have their own pace of doing thing. We tend to be in the middle/mediocre type. Our type is the type that make the game fun, since we play with normal pace and have fun with whatever we are doing.
