A lot of people are quitting because of excessive time gating in the form of limited resources and horrible RNG on honing.
I’m also starting to feel more and more tired of this shit the higher ilvl i go.
Time gating belongs to mobile games, not a triple A PC game.
There are alternative ways to make a lucrative amount of money, no need to turn your game into a mobile game horrible paying model.
They aren’t “making” it this way, this is how the game has been, and most likely always will be. It’s consistent amongst the genre and a tactic to encourage consistent attendance for the game. Even just a few minutes of research into the game prior to playing would’ve made it blatantly obvious.
You realize they all have time gating right? Somehow a raid lockout is not the same thing? It took months to gear up a full raid, I go up a tier every couple weeks.
What the heck are you even gated from? I as a casual who bought tier 2 honing mats occasionally from mari (maybe $30 total) have access to all the content. Are you gated from coming content? Guess what you have til then? Time!!!
I get maybe qol complaints, bugs, bots, but when people are like " I don’t like honing " gtfo dude seriously that’s the whole gearing system, you think they’re going to change that? The whole game is about diminishing returns but people are so fired up about getting geared for nothing.
