Hello, my name is Elano.
I play LA since launch and I have 2 332 hours played on steam.
I also played on many KR MMOs like Aion (for 12 years), BnS (for 6 years), MxM, BDO, GW and GW2, Tera (for 3 years) and Bless Online.
I love Korean MMO’s I even launched a website and created a Database for Aion named LFStrat, with thousand guides and fun tools. (Still waiting for the LA’s API…! BTW).
I’m used to find Korean Game Editors to be very lacking on the communication part (NCSOFT / SMILEGATE = 0 communication) I’m also used to bad Western Editors like Gameforge or NCWEST.
Not gonna lie at first when the game launched I was Happy that AGS took Lost Ark under its wings (Trust me with Gameforge as editor lost ark would have been dead in a month). But after 11 months, I kinda tried to understand what AGS and SG are doing… And damn… You guys are terrible at editing the game for the West and it’s a shame.
You guys really don’t know what you’re doing and it’s starting to show. You really I mean REALLY need to do something ASAP if you want the game to be still out in 4 or 5 years from now.
So here’s my opinion about what should be changed ASAP in the west so the game will feel less like a second job and feels less toxic. OF COURSE you can have your own opinion and if you disagree with what i’ll say it’s totally okay. Just giving some suggestions here. (not like they’re going to be heard anyways lol)
The Bots problem:
- Instead of applying restrictions on High level players do it on Mokokos!
- You shouldn’t be able to use the market or the glod shop if you are a Mokoko.
- Why giving a Punika Pass to the new players? You shouldn’t be able to purchase or apply a Pass if you don’t already have a lvl 50 char or even 55. on your account! or if you are still a mokoko. Low level zones are completely empty and you only have bots there now. It’s not normal!
- Give us back the possibility to put 20 items per char. on the market but put a restriction if the acccount is a mokoko OR if they don’t have the Cristal Aura up.
IMO, they shouldn’t exist at all this is the shittiest way you could have milked us… BUT since they exist you should improve the way they are used cause it’s part of the toxic gatekeeping new players and veterans are facing since launch and it’s going to be worse and worse as the game’s develop. everyone is fed up about this fake currency and making them disappear would make the game 100 times better instantly! No joke!
If you really want to keep it for the money and the short term (since clearly with all the bad decisions you guys are making the game will not last very long) here is my suggestions.
- No more pheon taxes on weapon skins or avatar skins / outfits in the market.
- No more pheon taxes on trades between same roster characters
- If you want to trade a friend / guildmate the pheon cost should be half the normal price of the pheon taxe.
- Overall pheon taxes should be reduced and completely removed T1 / T2 weapons/ Accessories etc…
Well, not gonna lie it’s bad… really bad you almost never communicate with your playerbase and when you communicate with us it always feels like we are talking to a wall. Like when you ask if we wanted to keep the golden frog and we said with a big majority that we wanted the event extended and you did the opposite… WHAT’S THE F***** POINT OF ASKING OUR OPINION IF YOU DON’T LISTEN???
- You guys could do WAYYYYYYYYYYY better!
- NEVER ASK for our opinion if you’re not gonna listen.
- Talk about the problems you are facing. We don’t know what you guys are doing. You should give us some informations about the disconnexions and the bots and all in advance so we don’t stay blind wondering if you really are doing something to correct the problem or not.
- The disconnexions fiasco is a shame. Should be adressed RIGHT NOW!
- Give us back the golden frog! please?
If you really want the game to feel western you should do a real work of westernazing it! Stop doing bullcrap things like censoring skirts and changing character skin colors… WE DON’T CARE ABOUT THAT it’s stupid and doing nothing for the game you just look like clowns.
- Why do you have to do everything twice in this game? 2 chaos, 2 guardians on every characters… If you have 6 char it’s 12 chaos and 12 guardians per day… it’s absolutely stupid and boring! After 1 or 2 char I just want to kill myself… and on top of that I’m supposed to do Legion raids and all? Really? No wonder we have insane gatekeeping no one has time to waste wiping.
- Stop censoring the game! This is shitty on every level and shouldn’t be a thing. We play on Korean MMO style because guess what? we love the style! shocked pikachu No one would ever had a problem with a white demon form SH or a outfit little too revealing or the artist if you never censored them in the first place.
- Put more clothes and skins in the shop! We are STARVING on the Western version 2 outfits per month? it’s a joke.
- Instead of removing the skins from the shop, UPDATE THEM every now and then like adding skins to existing outfits for the newly released classes especially if, you know… they were available on the KR version!
- Give us back the asian character customs you removed at launch in the character customisation! I play a Korean game because you know… I like the style!
- 4 months to realease a new class? REALLY? WTF! The people who made this decision should be fired without notice.
PLEASE! Give us the artist BEFORE the Witcher event! At this point it’s just common sense.
Well… If you have any more ideas on what could make the game better don’t hesitate to add an answer to this post. Please be kind. It’s just my opinion and If you disagree well give us a better idea ^^
