    Here's How It's Gonna Go Down
    Gamescom arrives
    End of August
    Booths set up and ready to take cows on the "shiny" part of the slaughterhouse. They don't know. All they see are pretty troughs and the promises of a time well spent. They leave gamescom excited and say to themselves "I wanna play that mmo, shame its 30 bananas".
    August 21 arrives, F2P announced. Yay!, they say, this game is open to EVERYONE.
    And Jouska and Co. are smiling in the shadows, happy that their Stockyard is expecting new cattle. More money all around! No promises, they KNEW what they would expect, right? 1 Million purchased games sounds good, eh? Good numbers all around!
    "First they came for the Ghillie Vocalists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a PVP-er.
    Then they came for the Value Packs, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Market Trader.
    Then they came for the Marketplace Pearlshop, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Whale.
    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me."

    I should have read this article before I invested in a Lie.
    Let this be a lesson to me.

  7. DarkWave added a post in a topic Value Pack Discussions   

    A word I see thrown a lot around is "support".
    -I buy a pack to "support" the game
    -I "support" the devs when I buy colors
    This is stupid because, first of all, you're paying for a service, or a virtual item, or a pretty color.
    When I pay for anything, its because I expect good service from it, and if I buy a value pack, I expect this service to be fair to everyone who is playing the game, regardless of whether they want a premium subscription or not.
    I went through a lot of trouble to get this game running after EACH and EVERY patch. That's terrible service. I bought a costume and got my fabulous dress. That is a good service. I had my ticket looked at after 8 days. That is a service that can be improved.
    Do you see the difference? I don't support devs because their job is to make nice things, and the deal is that I pay for them. The P2W conversion present in the pack (10% Lifeskills + combat buff) is a terrible advantage that should not devolve into a debate of "hurr durr, you dont buy this pack? you must be poooooooor"
    If anything, this pack should be aimed at making cosmetics flourish, so that people can get invested in "monthly" costumes, rotating costume sets, or an array of color samples. That is a service worth the monthly charge.
    One last point: 12 months at 15 USD is a 180USD Investment. The cosmetics I have bought amount to more than that 180. So what are you doing? Shooting yourself in the foot by selling costumes at high, and ingame p2w advantage at low.

    I came out of the woodwork just to say: Daum, you fawking idiots.
    You have so many pressing issues not only with the game itself, but also with the patcher (which hangs), the customer service (which doesn't make us feel appreciated) and your image (which you stated was not p2w).
    I was alright when costumes and ghillies were debated, since that was honestly a small buff that didnt matter due to the prices you were selling it for.
    I was alright with the dyes since the rng was too high to make a consistent "Exchange money for ingame silver".
    But this? this takes the cake.
    Premium account models in a b2p game with f2p cashshop....
    Do you want to know what happened to your customerbase? They left long ago when people who defend this practice continue letting you step on them.
    And they're alright with it. They love spending money and being taken in with your lies and arguing semantics.
    But I'm not. And you will continue seeing a decline because your decision to cut corners and let the devs order you around will alienate the playerbase that was in it for the long run.

  9. DarkWave added a post in a topic AN ERROR OCCUR WHILE PATCHING   

    So after 12 hours, trying portforwarding, and trying to install a fresh copy (which freezes at 74%), I am at a loss as to where I should even tackle this problem, or if I should even be the one doing this work. I have been consistently logging in to collect daily rewards and playing, but this situation has flummoxed me. Hopefully when I get back this will be fixed since not only are the old files not updating, but installing from the account page is broken as well
     
    I cry for daum, I really do.

    I would not advise starting from a fresh download since doing so will still give the same errors, this time without the 34 GB predownloaded. This is really frustrating.
