You agree with restricting people's money? Talk about dumb. If people wanna blow their money on stuff that gives them 0.01% return then they should be allowed to. Communism isn't great. Neither is RNG, but I'd take it over not having the freedom of doing whatever I want with my money and letting a corrupt government decide what I do with it. 

sorry but where are you from? I'll go philosophical on you here, but you ain't free anywhere these days. 

"According to the World Bank, more than 500 million people were lifted out of poverty as China's poverty rate fell from 88 percent in 1981 to 6.5 percent in 2012, as measured by the percentage of people living on the equivalent of US$1.90 or less per day in 2011 purchasing price parity terms."

"More than 45 million people, or 14.5 percent of all Americans, lived below the poverty line last year, the Census Bureau reported on Tuesday. The percentage of Americans in poverty fell from 15 percent in 2012, the biggest such decline since the year 2000"

YES! lol

Yes, good luck the dude even reading and acknowledging he is wrong. The country has a long way to go but arguably their overall direction doesn't look as grim as other places.

I hope this makes it's way to us eventually. RNG boxes never should've been added to MMOs. Direct purchases are more than enough money for virtual items and the idiots would actually make MORE money if they didn't keep trying to milk with rng.

Well, one is a game the other is medicine. You sound stupid. People cheat, gamble, and scam. Welcome to reality, it's a ----- sometimes. 

Everyone in this thread(besides myself) sounds like a child that needs their hand held.

It's gambling, you have a choice to partake or not. Also, china might be against gambling but they have a huge underground gambling circuit that the government is involved in as well. So I assume they do this against video games, ect.. because they(the government) only wants to swindle their citizens and no outside sources. 

You should gitgud. Stop being stupid, it makes you look retarded.

Everyone needs to get their hand held because companies would do anything to make money.

Again like I said, you are stupid because you don't even know the extend of companies willing to do to make money.

Have you ever visited Vietnam? FAKED PRODUCTS EVERYWHERE because companies are unregulated and they can do it without anything care.

Stupid idiot, ever seen how company don't care about environment? Beijing happens with smog.

Ever seen companies don't have any government quality checking? Vietnam happens with low cost, cheap products everywhere.

You should visit the world more than your basement, then you would realize without government holding your hands, you are the easy target for companies to make profits and there are nothing you can do against it except suffer from their actions.

rednose wasnt locked box it was a gift box no real money was involved archage has loot boxes you buy now thats a form of gambling

It doesn't matter since the act of clearly change the % is what I am talking about.

Porting straight from KR wouldn't result into 100% Red Nose, therefore the only logical conclusion is they try to change the % to be different compared to the KR version, thus problem occurred.

Is the % higher or lower? We all know we can't trust this company, so most likely % higher.

Idiot who never understand and never travel around the world. Get a brain.

You like unregulated and not hand held capitalist, try visit Vietnam and see how long you last. I say less than 1 week.

Idiots like you got the protection from the government and yet don't value them. Wait until it is gone and see how you cry about it.

You never understand what you got until it is gone, just typical mindless idiot who never know what they got.

Reasons because it is nothing but pure gambling and often unfair one. Remind me of certain Red Nose Day.

http://news.mmosite.com/content/2016-12-12/china_is_cracking_down_on_mmorpg_lockbox_vendors.shtml

This practices is not just from this game, but for many games and they found it is a great way to scam money from players.

One of the few things I agree with China.

Both of them got their heads cut off. I like watching the 3 Kingdoms as well until I learn their fates, no wonder most series or show never go beyond after the forming of the 3 Kingdoms because it is just brutally hurt to learn the truth later.

China has entered the MMO market as major producers and more of their games are getting better.

Who will play? You do play KR games now, what make you think you won't play Chinese MMO when there are a good one?

I play 2 Chinese MMO and what I found out is that they did it right with PvP. I mean lots of PvP contents and activities and they make money on RAGE PURCHASE.

Nevertheless, their MMO has good PvP and sandbox, many people will flock to it. Their CS is not out of inconvenience, but based on time saving which mostly support features, the P2W crowd here will love it.

Red Nose Day has absolutely nothing to do with ANY of this on ANY account,

they were a free item event not something you bought

the first boxes were a ----- up and they gave a second box

anyone with any shred of intelligence knew the red nose armor was going to be weighted heavier then it's counterparts

 

and just to save you the trouble of a shitpost at the end of the month, EXPECT A LOT OF CRESCENTS
