No because they crafted it, they did not pay money to gain new armor. I will break the word down for you
Pay = real money, you know like you buy chocolate with etc.
'2' or 'to' = I hope you don't need me to explain what this means.
Win = Winning! When you beat someone in some form or another.
Therefore its, paying real life money to gain an advantage over another, who did not spend that money, in order to win. Whether the advantages are small or not, it is still an advantage.
you can also buy gems with gold and gold with gems - gems = irl cash for cash shop currency. an dthen you cna buy mats or crafted gear with gold and so on.
but you can also farm gold to buy gems to get those karma boosters et al.
teh gear progression itself is pretty flat, you'll spend far more time farming gear for the look you want as opposed to say aion where you farm for ages for stats alone
otherwise you can get generic looking gear for gold alone as well from vendors.

I'm not worried about the time it saves, or what it is even, im worried about where it would lead to. When has any game company in the history of everness actually kept the cash shops at a steady level? It always gets progressively more 'needed' to buy the items as the games life goes on, and this won't be any different.
guild influence can also be bought with gold which is a straight x gold = y influence, which in turn can be used to unlock stuff liek guild weapons and armour(ie they have yoru guild emblem on them).
you can also get influence boosters from teh cash shop.
as for karma gain you get like 5-10k before level 10 and level 80 karma gear costs roughly 30k a piece iirc. it's pretty easy to farm without th eboosters.
keep i nmind again, you can buy all the cash shop stff you want without ever spendign irl cash on it, buy buying gems with gold and then using those gems to buy cash shop stuff without spending any irl cash. just takes a bit more time, and it's great fo rpeople that have a lot of time but have less irl money.

There's also pve dungeon gear that seems to be just for looks as well.
i think the dungeon gear is the best stuff for level stats wise, or maybe variety of stats or something, in addition to the unique looks from each dungeon.
keep in mind every dungeon boss drops a token to each player that is used to buy the dungeon gear from that dungeon.
not sure what the drop to pruchase ratio is, i remember an older interview saying it was liek on etoken = 1 piece.
i think there's also levels of it to each dungeon where like story mode gives the weaker gear token and exploration mode gives the higher stats token.
