You realise you DO get free TC from mining?
the only arguable pay to win feature is time crystals, due to the fact that you have to earn them
But unlike most Pay to Win Games that aren’t blatantly such, time crystals in the blockheads don’t require much time to be useful
Mine a little bit of tc, and you’ll be able to participate in many of the games features
Unlike some games (cough, fifa mobile, cough) where the premium currency you get comes in double digits, while the useful items that can be purchased with it are in the thousands
Annoying players are fun to mess with
