I mean bots are ALWAYS going to be a problem, there is NEVER going to be a fix for them as there is no WAY to actually fix it. Bots plague all online games and will continue to plague all of them.
The Artist censorship is really only making the lewd people upset that they can’t look at little girl panties anymore. If the change affects a person that much, they have far worse issues to fix.
Inflation was always going to happen and was even posted that it would happen when the first honing buff was announced. When you have teh AVG gamers roster making 3 to 4 times the gold now with all of the legion raids available to them, of COURSE the BC price was going to match it. Since its easier to get alts up to the vykas levels for 11700g a week per character, the BC price would adjust with that.
3/ mostly blabla, nothing done about it, like bots
5/ it’s the same from the start. We’ll have to see once we see the artist.
6/ more than ever. The more the content becomes old more gatekeeping happens.
1.- Bots won’t EVER dissapear, bots are a thing on everysingle game, there are a lot on this game cuz it’s easier and hella profitable.
3.- They ban RMT but not so often
4.- Nothing to be “fixed” on her transformation, she is gray she born that way don’t be rascist.
5.- Noone cares cuz most people aren’t pedos.
6.- Exist and will always exist just like in any other mmorpg.
Captcha not introduced again, since AGS/SG knows the whole AH infrastructure will collapse if not for bots. Imagine an MMO relying 99% on Bots for in game Market circulations! Sheesh that’s really bad! shows how bad the grind is!
It’s very playable in my opinion, don’t ask the forum regular user. Many of them are lifeless losers and can only see the problems with the game. Then proceeded to spend 10 hours a day complaining on the forum.
Honing is much easier now, and if you only push 1 - 2 chars, the other 4 alts are gold earners. It’s comfortable to play with for 3 - 4 hours a day. (1 - 2 hours if you don’t care about alts and only push main, we get 60 - 100+ free pheons monthly, so Blue Crystal price are the problem for people with many active alts)
Bots are still a problem, but it’s not like the other f2p game doesn’t have bots. They don’t inflate gold like they used to so that’s a pros, most of the gold sources are from players doing Legion raids.
Not quite and it will never be completely solved but they are actively trying new methods to mitigate the issue (e.g. CAPTCHA, AH daily listing limit, ilevel 1375 to list trade materials, etc.). There are ban waves that happen behind the scenes but communication is sparse.
Gold inflation exists and is a problem but the frog vendor helps deflate the gold in the game. The issue is that not enough whales are needing gold right now (hence the blue crystal prices rise). This is in part by bots, but mostly because the whales aren’t honing (they’re already 1590) or upgrading other aspects.
RMT has always and will always be a bannable offense. There are cases of people being banned but there doesn’t seem to be any transparency on the issue (e.g. specific numbers of players caught).
No the shadow hunter transformation has not be adjusted since it was updated.
The reaction to artist’s censorship has been mostly split into two groups: (1) the vocal outrage (likely minority) group that is very upset about the changes, and (2) the silent “whatever” group who are probably okay with it and won’t notice. The changes seem minimal to me.
Gatekeeping is a very big problem for new players. There are a number of proposed ideas to try and mitigate the issue but none have been implemented so far. The best advice I can give to new or returning players is to find a guild or group willing to help you with learning runs. Be warned that using the party finder is highly not recommended for new or returning players as it may take hours to get let into a group (or in the case of creating your own, no one may join).
Game is in an decent state atm, there are some problems that need to be fixed but the core game is still great… and they are making progress on the bots at least on my server… hopefully the new captcha system will deter more bots…
I really like the combat/raids/skins of Lost Ark and not sure what Blue Protocol will offer.
