It isn't a competition though .
Sure, it´s not a competition, it´s not like on PSO2NA early play XBOXERS made literal HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF MESETA before we even got to play the game, selling even mundane items such as PA Disks, or mid tier weapons that used to be rare on release for hundreds of K each, whereas now we are better off vendoring them for 2000 meseta.
Face it, playing early in a MMORPG allows you to make a good profit and dominate the early economy, and gives you a leg forward for potentially a very long time, allowing you to be better equipped and ready than someone joining late.
And this matters because being better equipped and rich ensures you to always ride the wave and more easily farm and obtain even more riches as new tiers of content are released, as opposed to being swallowed by it.
Yes, playing a MMORPG from the start matters.
You know how much a Nemesis weapon costed during the XBOX exclusivity?
1 to 2 m a piece.
You know how much they cost now?
35 to 50m.
Markets are funny like that and entering a market late is very nocive and makes things harder.
