There should have been a disclaimer for the included pay to win mechanics. Don't play if you aren't willing to pay.

After some long and interesting grinding I have finally managed to unlock February. It fills me with a sense of pride and accomplishment to have come this far and I can only recommend the experience to everyone else. Can't wait to buy my way into March next.

I have discovered endgame content.
