As the swimsuit costumes came out this week i bought the big pack, y’know cool background and all, then again i soent gold buying costumes for my alts and another pack of crystals i bought to get the last couple, but as i was doing my dailies on my characters with much resistance i thought to myself.
Why am i doing this?
8 alts on rest bonus, my main every day, for what?
Dungeons? There arent any past Oreha, challenge abyss are equalized.
PvP? I dont care about it its a half ass system with an attempted bandaid fix.
Horizontal content? Yeah i did enjoy doing it, but the latter half i wouldnt call fun at all, they purposely made it tedious with little to no good rewards later on.
Story? Great setpieces, with a mediocre story, i can play a myrid of other games if i want this.
Legion raids? Yeah they’re great, on the first run, then they just become another tick box to do each week and stress over until they’re done.
And im sat here, putting money in to the game, when i dont even get any enjoyment out of it, future content? Why should i believe it will be any different?
Its the same pattern with all these games, they keep demanding more of your time the deeper you get but they rarely want to give you the satisfaction you seek, and the fun moments are few and far between.
The game isnt designed with the player in mind, its designed with the consumer in mind, no matter how SG sugarcoat their words the design is there to make you waste more and more time in the game the more you play.
Alt friendly? My fucking ass. The only thing this game does for alts is lets you put them at the starting line of the hamster wheel so you can spend longer running around in it, if it was alt friendly bound mats wouldnt exist, you would be able to move stones, legion raid mats and everything to your alts freely, THAT’S alt friendly.
So yeah. I’m done.
Im writing this because i want everyone to look at themselves as they play this game and ask yourself, why are you doing this? Is the time spent in this game truly worth the fun you are getting back?
If it is, good for you, if it isn’t, dont force yourself, just step away.
