As you said it's old data. From what I've gathered the game is doing better than before as in more people are playing it. I guess it had to do with the bad reputation and all these gypsies predicting the future of how everything will go in the game if this or that gets implemented (for example cash shop items in market place causing p2w).

That's not to say a lot of the game mechanics are pretty bad (RNG for one) but it's definitely better than a lot of other games with heavy RNG. Also they've talked about upgrading the in-game graphics with a new engine in the future, doesn't happen a lot elsewhere :)  

Every game gets shit on, people love to criticize and complain, and the more popular a game is the more shit talk there's going to be. Besides, it doesn't matter how a game is doing in Korea because some of the most popular games there are pretty much dead here in the west.

Man thats just salty players who got diddled by RNG'sus doom and glooming.  Its like any other thing in the world, if you have a bad experience you are way more likely to make your turdtastic opinion be heard because the mentality is always the same "I'm not happy so burn this mother ducker down!".  

Game is actually growing from what they have shared in their infographic thing of 2016, or maybe it was some kind of investor information thing, either way there has been growth from last year.

its doing bad compared to the top games in the game cafes there which doesn't even mean bad. Its like how CoD sold significantly less copies than expected this year but still sold millions above most games.

It doesnt have to be the most popular game to turn a profit

 

Clearly it make more than enough money to keep investing in the game

just look at the patch notes and you will see time and money being invested into small details like wizard leg length and character blinking, dieing games dont really fix stuff like that

 

we are yeahs away from auto pilot mmo, a game with such a good base wont be killed of easily

They were, or apparently still are using an outdated source, known as gamenote.com. This was also the source most idiots here in the forum were using early on to spread lies on how bad the game is doing to shift the game into a slightly different route (e.g. server structure), while in fact it was more doing more than fine.

Meanwhile it is currently in the top 20 among all online games in KR, while being in the top 10 if you filter it for MMORPGs.

Sliferx link above pretty much explains all of that.

First of all KR has a shit ton more games than we do in Europe. A lot of players are spread over them.  Also why does it really matter if its doing good or not there? If you like the game currently and enjoy your time then play it. What else are you gonna do lol

No the game is just doing bad in EU/NA. Server merge, free guest passes, they are desperate for players... well that happens when you only care about money.

KR is doing excellent. They *added* 3 channels there last week (making for 40 now) which are almost all crowded during evenings. During the holiday season no less, when games usually get very quiet for a week or two.

No the game is just doing bad in EU/NA. Server merge, free guest passes, they are desperate for players... well that happens when you only care about money.

How do you figure its doing bad? Anecdotal, personal experience with no basis in actual fact?
