People blame amazon a lot but i think 90% of the shit in the game is because of smilegate, nobody else.
I dont like pheons system no matter the excuses, its a sick predatory system and there is alternatives to make a market healthy.
I dont like dailies, its extremely painful to do. Same for cube, same for boss rush and every island of the game.
I dont like the fact that i have to do many content on a precise time, particulary the week end when u gotta do these 2 islands to get ur gem lvl 5. You have to be as punctual as going to work, ill never understand why we cant go every hour on those like chaos gate. I also dont understand why we cant do it the morning before reset day. Why i cant do my chaos gate at 9am, 2 hours before reset ? Idk. Im not here to work, but to play, to have fun and i dont feel like it since months.
I dont like that monster hunter world system for raid boss, its tilting everyone, its provoking conflict between players for a story of 1 or 2 minutes. At the same time i understand everyone, some wanna go faster cause “they have to do” their dailies even they hate it. And some dont wanna waste a single penny in it cause they are in trouble to make enough gold to build and hone every character.
So its a race of (gold/time) all the time, thats why the gatekeep is absurd, but the unhealthy system of the game is provoking that.
And ofc the lack of supports. People wait hours to get into the damn raid sometimes cause supports are always going in the highest gigachad group they find. So normal people can not get into the raid for a very long time.
90% of skins are in my opinion complete garbage and i feel like you have no idea how to make money in the west. And on that, AGS has the biggest responsability cause its publisher thing.
DCs/freeze/AH/Bots/optimization in general is complete garbage. The conditions under which the players play are unacceptable. I feel like you have too much ego smilegate to ask people for help. You cant fix problems, just hire people more competent to help u solve it. You cant leave your community under these conditions. Unacceptable.
And the way you ignore people from the west is also unacceptable. Idc if u have a deal with a publisher, u are still the developper and its ur duty to keep a relation with the whole community from everywhere in the world. The way you treat your community is extremely disrespectful.
That being said, you manage to release a support class that we hard need in our region for the reasons i said previously in almost 5 months. Absolutely unacceptable and disrespectful with all the shit your community is going through atm.
This is all the reasons why i quit now. I could say more (like the lack of communication, the lack of variety in builds and some other things) but my message is long enough.
I wanted to wait the games im interested of, coming out in 2023 before i quit, but i cant handle lost ark anymore. Its just too much pain, i enjoy only 5% of my time in the game. I would be a masochist to stay.
