Not gona make myself populair here, but.. you say the gameplay without donations, p2w, etc is equal and fair. However, in some sense this is not true. Because people with a lot of playtime will be stronger/out gearing the once that don't have that much time to play this game. Meaning that we need someway for them to catch up, well this is where l2store comes into play. This way people with less playtime can still gear up their toons and compete with the people having a lot more time to play. Ofc putting effort in a game should reward you... Anyway, by putting some restrictions on L2store can partially overcome this problem but there will always be a group having a hard time. Not saying I don't like your idea, I would also like to see a p2p model but the chances are really slim. Just pointing out here that there will always be a "unfair" factor to the game and will always have some group complaining. Maybe making one server p2p and one p2w will give the outcome so people can actually choose (but then servers can most likely not merge).
