Is it worth to start?

Hello there, im consider to start to play, but is it worth, if I don't want to spend any money? It's possible to get some stuff only just playing? Or I need spend some cash if I want to get actual content and superpowers? I will be obligated for all honest anwsers.

Ohh, and sorry but my english its not too well.

    Whatever you do, if you decide to play, you should plan to spend money on the game. The only way the game will continue to exist is if players put money into it. CO is not a charity.

    Yes, if the game suck me in, but do I have to spend cash for all things, or can i unlock some stuff just playing the game?

    Technically only a handful of things are locked behind the lTS paygate... Exclusive costumes and unlimited, in that you are only limited by the number of unlocked spots, Free Form characters.

    In game you can aquire questionite and that not only is a currency unto itself but it can be exchanged for zen which can be used in the zen store to unlock stuff. Currently there is a cap on how much questionite that any one character can 'refine', unlike true refining this is a zero loss system, in a single day encouraging playing multiple characters.

    I'm an LTSer so my knowledge of what an F2P/Silver player is limited, I hope this helps you choose to at least try the game out.

    It is worth even more right now with the bonus free Feeform slot (until April 17th).
    Then expect the usual microtransactions such as bag slots, bank slots, ressource cap unlocks, etc...

    As @mordray001 mentioned, you can farm questionite and exchange it for zen (cash shop currency) so the only real limits are your patience and your motivation.

    It’s a free game with options to pay.

    I played for 6 years without paying anything, had a ton of fun, and got a bunch of stuff by just farming cash shop currency. This is probably one of the best games to play for free since just about everything can be gotten via farming and they're actually really generous with how much currency you can farm, way more than other games. So yeah, it's definitely worth it.

    After those 6 years I spent a bunch of money over the next 3 years cause I wanted to get a bunch of things fast without working for them \o/

    I played for years with subscriptions off and on; when I could finally get my LTS, I jumped on it, but the game's still tons of fun even without the stuff you might need cash for. And unlike some MMOs out there, all the add-ons that get released are free for everybody (hence the "Free For All" subhead in the title).
