The forums seem to have subsided a little bit now but it is hard not to notice how quiet the game is. On jordine we are getting world bosses with 10-15 people turn up on a weekend compare this to a week ago where 40-50 people would turn up. Only city that seems to have any people in it is heidel and pretty much all of them are afk fishing or horse training. It seems that people realise there is no point bringing across a discussion to daum/kakao because at the end of the day they knew the backlash this decision would have and made it anyway. The only thing people can do is vote with their feet and people seem to have left the game in a mass exodus. Sad to see such a great and well loved game put down by so many in such a short space of time.  I think I speak for many when I say that I fell in love with this game and it is so hard to see it be ripped apart by greed whether you support p2win or not p2win.

World bosses are being crowded as always and die faster and faster each day, stop trying to make it look worse as it is.

Seems like it's taking more of a hit on EU then NA. I've noticed no issues on Edan. It's funny how the sky is falling people don't realize we had people that actually left NA to go back to Korea server. Madness, I know... This will not kill the game, the massive rng fisting that can happen in end game gearing will do that(if it ever does, maybe it won't...)

Once I convinced myself that this is not a competitive PvP game but rather a grindy PvE game with great graphics and combat I've really enjoyed the game.

I say good riddance. Those Koreans need to go back to their own server. They're coming here and disrupting our NA/EU experience.

Finally honest players can get some loot, instead of No-lifers all the time.

I hope more quit. So all No-Lifers will sit on Empty Castle with no one to challenge them, and wonder why they wasted their life away this past 5 month.

This weekend is a inaccurate representative of how many people will do world bosses as it has been +50% EXP and anyone serious about the game has been grinding and wont be logging alts for a CHANCE to get loot

They have already decided to do it:

Today we are writing you to provide insight into a new mechanic you can expect to see next week, following the normally scheduled maintenance.

It's not like they asked your opinion about it, whether you want to see it or now.

Agreed, my guild showed up to do Kzarka on a Saturday Evening at Prime Time and it took over 15 minutes to kill the thing, which is the longest Kzarka I've fought in a long time. On top of that I was Solo Grinding Sausans ALL weekend and only ran into a handfull of other people. I don't think the game is dying, but I do feel like a lot of people either left, or are just taking a break because they are kinda pissed off right now.

Clearly we play different versions of the game. Last time I checked Kzarka is a world boss and Saturday it was as crowded as usual. Yesterday evening Heidel was having the most lag I've experienced, and the least of the crowd were afk: the notifications of that guy failed/win at enchanting were poping like crazy!! :)

Forgot to say, I play on Jordine server.

On UNO it is business as usual.

At this time I have no intension on quitting, however weekends are usually when I spend the most time playing and for the first time since release I just didn't bother getting on all weekend.

The whole thing just pisses me off and being logged in just kept me thinking about it. Decided to forgo that and avoid the un-needed stressor that's recently been added to this hobby for me.

No proof.  Anecdotal comments mean nothing. 

Anyone that is quitting is doing so now because they were just looking for something to justify their decision. 

Tons of nodes taken, lots of fights last night.

Please stop with the sky is falling routine.  I just wish the mods would ban more people that post this bullshit.

I didn't ask for anything from Daum.  I have fun playing their game.  When it stops being fun I will leave and not throw a temper tantrum in my living room.

Sorry my idea of pay to win does not line up with yours.  You have a small very vocal minority spouting off.  Big deal.

Not any mention of this last night in our guild at all. 

If you all hate the game.  Please leave or buy the game from Kakao and run it your way. Thanks.
