    Its simple really, pearl shop makes them money.  Fixing things like lag etc, costs them money.  Make money... spend money...  What do you think they are going to choose?  Companies continue to use broke stuff as long as the profit remains.  When the profit dries up, particularly because of things needing fixed they do a cost analysis to determine if its more worth while to keep their money or spend some to fix it.  If they think it'll cost more to fix it then they'll immediately make they abandon it and move on to something else that can make money right away with.  That's the problem with the FTP model.  Since the FTP model has come about MMO's have slipped markedly in quality.  There isn't a subscription base to keep happy.  With FTP constant micro transactions bring in a money stream.  Because FTP revolves around micro transactions and not subscription the emphasis gets placed on new micro transaction items and not content or equipment upgrades and maintenance.  A high player turn over rate is expected in a FTP system where in a subscription system they need to work hard at maintaining a base to keep money coming in, thus content.  So in a nutshell, FTP games don't require as much money spent continuously on development (content).  Want a better game, get these companies away from FTP and back to subscriptions where they felt accountable to a subscriber base.  In FTP they'll take you or leave you, some one new will try out the game tomorrow and maybe spend a couple dollars.

    I'd expect at least the same delay as there was for the DK's EU NA release.

    It's really funny seeing all this Striker when? stuff.  If Korea is JUST getting it, why would you expect or even entertain the idea that we will be getting it before next year?  Put your big person pants on and wait, it'll eventually come and when it does you can be happy but until then you can be mad at the internet for showing you spoilers of things to come that aren't scheduled for you to get yet.

    So this "Steed" thing they "added", what did they add other then "Steed" supposedly being on the horse some place if it has a set of abilities?  The two skills at breeding has been there already seeing as I've gotten a T7 like that before now.  So did they actually add anything?

    FIRST: I'm really unhappy they are removing earned rewards now.  They took away my black spirit egg that was a quest reward from last year.  The egg had zero warning or hints that it could or would be removed.  So i think its a real JERK move to remove people's rewards.  SECOND:  The changes to dueling need to be removed right away.  It's an open invitation to exploit.  In node/territory wars it looks like the home guard can duel one of their own parties then when that party's health is low from the combat the other guild(s) they can end the duel and get a wonder group heal.  This is the EU and NA, it might have gone over in Korea but if they can exploit it here, they are going to so this needs removed before it becomes a problem.

    The mistake was mine.  I had 11 workers in one town and I put 11 materials in that town then told them to repeat by clicking their repeat all button.  Apparently it counted as many trips as they could have done against the project instead of how many they actually could do because of materials.  So that cut into the amount of workers I could send.  Bad mechanic, but my mistake

    This is actually the worst Christmas event I've seen.  The Santa event is so close to being exactly the same as the one they have been doing in Arc that I wonder if there could be legal issues.  They should have had Santa drop one big present in the middle of town every night cycle, it stays there for 10 minutes and everyone can only interact with it once pr cycle.  People would be happy.  Right now its like Santa is some sick demented jerk flying around town laughing at everyone he thinks are jerks as he watches them chase behind jumping off buildings etc to get the mystery goody he dropped.  VERY disappointed! The snow looks great though.

    Horse racing will be added?  I wasn't aware they had fixed the movement glitching macro'ing that's been going on with horses.  If that hasn't been fixed then the horse racing is going to be really lame, reduced to who can spam that glitching macro the best.

    Lost a guild house to a 35 mil bid, we had bid 25 mil, still had 2 bids remaining and was on location for the last 30+ mins of the auction waiting.  At no time, even being there, having remaining bids and periodically looking at the guild manager did we ever know we had been outbid and we were prepared to bid more.  Total load of crap.  Between launch and other crap shoots like this I'm feeling more fondly about Trion.

    Node War Tower Placement
    For going on about how the first step in a node war is to find the enemy you have sure made it easy.  With such a large combat area its very annoying how narrow the choices are for actually placing a tower that isn't obvious.  On top of that something like a bush is a major obstacle in placements, yes a bush.  Open up the placement options a little bit and make it so bushes aren't an issue, trees make sense but bushes?  I've found several virtually flat areas and its completely red for placement even though its in the correct area still.
