Just wanted to say that I'm Vip0 (LVL 85), never paid for anything here not even the monthly card and I'm constantly in top 10 in arena and PvE (HoL, etc) i got silphy 3 times in CoF in early game ( at the time i thought it was normal, now i know it is pretty awesome) and now she is 4*, I also got goram with the 600 stones, besides that, i wasted diamonds to get tsuki 3* and sarya 4* and now I'm saving to get vulko as soon as it gets to the chest. Of course I have no chance to compete with vip15 or close to that, but I still win P2P many times. You could say I'm not winning because I'm not at rank 1, but i have to disagree with you ahaha.
I know that i got very lucky to get in my server and because of my silphy
That's awesome that you've done so well on your server, (the sylphi drops are crazy) but you're still at 85, I should have been more specific but I'm talking more about end game. I'm curious what level the top players are on your server? The run from 90 to 100 is a brutal stamina push, plus the awakening grind. Spenders will have a huge advantage, I was "competitive" until 90 with just daily diamonds. Also, when server merges start happening for you that will most likely hurt your ability to rank in the top ten.
I will say, you've mostly proved me wrong (with some very good luck) but also prove my point by saying you can't compete with vip15's and can't rank first. I'm curious what level 100 will be like for you, I do hope you can still compete vip0.
