I stopped logging in daily a few weeks ago after racking up almost 700 hours total in the game and it’s been honestly great. Yeah I’m missing some login rewards and stuff but I’ve really been enjoying playing other games and not having this particular game take up a lot of my time. The game will still be there when and if I return to it.
If they manage to make real and significant changes to fight the bot/rmt problem and address other issues, they could easily turn things around and I’ll come right on back. If you’re mad enough to be coming here to this forum, then you should consider just taking a few days in a row, or maybe a few weeks. They track the stats, they can see that older accounts are not logging in and it will pressure them to take more action. Or it won’t, and you’ll have more free time to enjoy other things! It’s a win-win for all of us!
For some reason i was excited to get those LED glasses until i got those LED glasses.
I logged in for the last time yesterday to collect all my unsold auctions and take a couple of screenshots.
After many weeks of daily login queues that only increased i know NA west is doomed even if they do fix it, the damage has been done the player base, the dedicated 1k+ hours players are leaving in droves and this will create a ripple effect onto everything else… Longer in game queues, less support so more failed attempts, reduced item sales on auction house, slower progression discouraging people when they see bots everywhere and the players they finally do see are all RMT.
In fact, it’s not that complex, you just have to pay humans to deal with it, they don’t want, they are still searching for other ways to block them, they can search, only (ingame) GMs I think, could do something but let’s let them search.
What is wrong to kill a game which would be plagued with let’s imagine, 60% of stupid illegal RMT players ? They would teach a lesson for any future game they would manage or make.
Letting stupid fuckers flex and spit on their face is not a good idea I think, it’s my POV.
You know what? I think they’re smart enough to filter the data to know when a non-bot stops logging in based on account creation date and other habits. If they’re just gonna milk it until it dies completely that blows but also screw 'em people are better off playing something else if that’s the case.
I miss the combat and some of the events but there’s SO many other games out there that are great and enjoyable so that’s why I made the post. Once people get over the hurdle of a few days of not doing their chores in game (because let’s be real, it’s designed to form habits) then they’ll feel fine.
