A) Definitely
B) Probably Yes
C) Maybe
D) Not Really
E) No
F) Others, Explain :

My opinion: Having great balances to the game can draw in many players, but it also depends on what kind of game it is if it will keep those new players. I feel that it is best for a company to provide boosters and cosmetic through cash payments and every other contents through progression. But, there are some games that fail when following this route due to the gameplay being uninteresting, or the cash shop didn't provide enough profit (ex. Exteel).

In Cosmic Break, though, I do see a lot of potential of bringing in new players through major balancing changes, since you just don't find any better F2P mech games out there today. But, some stuff should be kept excusively through payments, such as the ZERO bots. That way, players wouldn't be forced to spend cash to get the bots they want and are able to rank high through skills and tactics, but would still encourage payments to keep the business up well and running.

All in all, it really depends on what kind of game it is to see how much balancing it really needs, and what sort of combination would bring in the most profit.

    Ex. Lost Saga - Convenience through payments and exclusives to only payments, but relies on skills for the majority.

EDIT: Should we send the results of this topic to CB?

I may come back and fill this out later, but I feel you're missing some major information when you ask questions, that is a bit misleading.

Balance is an important factor in any game, period.

That doesn't mean that balance is the only thing that makes a game good though.
Mechanics make the game, balance ensures the players enjoy the game because there is a sense that your victory is due to skill.

Game mechanics are important to all games, whereas balance isn't always a factor at all. Think pong. There is no differentiation between the two players. Balance becomes a problem when there are customizable factors, such as characters, units, weapons, etc. These become irrelevant when a game doesn't include said factors.

That's all, reading your survey just annoyed me a bit because it feels misleading. "Balance is really important to me, and makes me want to play a game." > Never stop playing pong then. Perfectly balanced.

Master Poster> well i do get your idea. i don't know about your country, but i am indeed a student, and this research questionnaire is indeed for assignment purpose -_-

i am sorry that i couldn't do much at this point.

than again -_- paid survey don't give much as well irl and often will be ignore as well. @.@

thus, this research is base on the free will of the players whether they is kind enough to give share their oppinion.

thx for your opinion. i believe what you say does make sense in some way, or in some category of people. I may be bankrupt if i am to pay for 100 people surveys, am not master lvl. @.@
