TL;DR is last paragraph.
As someone who played this game for years(About 3 I believe) I feel I am more then quilified to write this review.
For years I've played Forsaken Worlds. I managed to get to max level, all but two purple gear,and level 1 wings. All of this with minimal cashshoping(Only $80, which in Forsaken Worlds, IS minimal).
I've also managed to play this game with a guild who during most of the game, was very postive about the guild and could always see upsides. Until about 6 months ago, we all had faith in Forsaken World lasting a lot more years, espically since an connent update has just came out that was supposed to be HUGE. Unfournatly, it wasn't. We got about 1/3 of the things China has gotten, and the things we did get was either very glitchy or very VERY grindy. To the point where, the only thing interesting that really came from the update was the incraed level cap(Which was still next to impossible to get without countless hours of grinding).
As if a stripped down overhyped update wasn't enough, there was a huge bug that where if you exploited it enough, you get max level, with plenty of items. The Product Manager, at this point, took weeks to acknowledge that the expliot WAS a thing and that it needed to be addressed. He stated that they were banning each and everyone of the people who explioted it, rather they were cashshopper or not. Unfournatly, that also was untrue. Months later, we still had people who clearly explioted the bug, running around in the few active PVP instances runing it for everyone.
To stop the expliot from happening, the GM's decided that the only way to fix it was to change server times for every server. While this seemed fine to some people who could now do events that were late at night, it was devasting to everyone who was optimzed for their timezone. Many people had to miss certain important events in game due to the new server times. To add insult to injury, tthe patch that they added this in, was unannounced and unaddressed for days after. About a wek later, the GM's finally discovered our hate for this change, and made a poll addressing if it should be changed back, with different changes added. This was addressed with a huge 'CHANGE IT BACK'. Months later, we're still getting "We are unable to complete the results of this poll at this time".
To top all of this sad turn of events up, after the poll, we had one of our GM's(Who was the most/only helpful one) transfered to their new game. This was followed by all of the rest of our GM's going silent. We would go weeks without hearing a response from any GM's and when we did, it was either only to address issues for the cashshop, or was not useful at all. This is still going on now, as well.
So, to sum all of this up, we had a stripped down overhyped contnet update, with an extreme amount of bugs We also had a huge expliot that was addressed by harming many people without getting reverted. We also have had very little communication from our GM's. If I were you, I would suggest not playing this game unless you don't mind glitchyness and minimal communication.
