Can someone just send this to Nexon KR or DevCat? Cause, honestly, you guys bring up good points. Personally, as I new Mabi player, I think they should
Unfortunately, the game will be not be taking those direction anymore and it is quite clear.
The game is now paid "content" heavy. It gives you a shell of game but anything relate to the contents will be "paid" heavy.
It is obvious with all the "free"bies they are giving out.
Look at all the recent new hair styles they are all wigs in gacha. When was the last time a new hair introduced? (Granted I do like wig for some purpose).
All the new clothes are directly put into gacha or clothing bags where you have to pay to get it.
The golden rule of TINSTAAFL...
What the game will be doing now is focusing on the Pets, Equips, and Fashion. Anything added will be the promote of these 3 things. And of these 3 things the sales point will be: Power, Sexy and Cute.
Power sells to the "veteran" gamers, probably the lower population but the main driving force of the "game" aspect. You can observe these creatures on major forums constant bickering about stats and certain race is useless and what not. The rules is people will pay for power, this is seen in real life such as bribes and show offs.
Sexy sells to male gamers, probably the majority of the population because that's just how the internet works. You can observe them playing traps and trying to make their characters pretty and cute and the new dresses coming out for ladies will make them look well endowed. The rules is people will pay to look pretty, this is seen in real life as plastic surgery.
and Cute sells to general public and the only reason is [s]BECAUSE KAWAII IS JUSTICE!
And if there's anything anyone should get out of this thread it should be this:
The question real question is not about saving Mabinogi, but the question is it worth saving.
Or rather how to save the poor souls who cannot stop playing.
Why do people still hold on to it? Is it because you already give an arm to the games that you are willing to give your life to it as well? Do you have the guts to say: Take my arm! I want my life still!
You know what they say, Death Is Only The Beginning.
