Ultimate drama, strategy, teambuilding, conquest, divide and conquer, sabotage and betrayal game. Better than Pokemon, better than TV - have to read between the lines, its never about the grind. - Droog.
Just has a really bad name - all will agree with that.
Those who play generally agree - very similar in format to ragnarok 2. MMORPG. First off, let me say that this is a well crafted game - those who enter the f2p/p2w argument generally and unfortunately dont stick around long enough to understand the dynamics of the game. Many come in with a high expectancy and first impression of pay to get ahead quick - you have to remember that in any game that would ♥♥♥♥ off anyone, no one wants that. So, no - this is not a P2W game - it's meant to be a balance between the two and the access to store items is monitored to ensure world availiability. Pay is for the impatient - ie. i want a gold treasure card so i can start making money, buy store items, IMPORTANT - NOT FOR BUYING A WHOLE BUNCH OF STORE ITEMS FOR GUILDMEMBERS, alot have tried to become a guild leader - feel this sudden mantle of responsibility and sudden need to line the storehouse with store bought items - just dont - it's bad form, people cry when it gets stolen, and most act like babies when they cant control everyone, and then leave game - money doesn't buy people. My own personal feelings - the cost of store items have been a high par requirement for this game - and while devs need to eat, most would be unwilling yet as an observation - as prices go down - the population becomes more spend thrifty on a regular basis - and i think the devs see, recognize and have been testing that with the event sales some of us have been expecting.
Many likes on how supportive admin has been - i believe it has made a general impression on the community and many have seen that, and are very suprised where normally this is absent in other games.
Dislikes would say probably the "Open Beta" sign - hoping that comes down soon. In my eyes, games going to have problems, issues and updates. Alpha for program testing, Beta for input and changes, General Release - Steam. Bugs and maintenance going to happen - at the same time if it were at all possible to rename the game to something more strategy minded - would catch a lot of WOW LOL fanboys - to me this is a treasure I almost skipped over because of the name - very reminiscent of the old vanilla WOW days (before it was ruined) in some ways, I find able to recapture that here.
