He's a GM on Shaiya from what I understand, so he doesn't really have a say in these things, he's just giving his two cents from an outsider's perspective.
they do need to make money and the way they do that is With ms and coming out with more and more
There are many extremely
successful free to play mmos out there that aren't milking their players dry at the expense of game balance. MS are a horrible business move, mainly because:
- It creates a huge imbalance between AP and non-AP buyers.
- It ruins PvP and makes it 1-hit (and no, it would not be all 1-hitting if MS were not here, there was a dmg reduction done).
- The majority of the players who are willing to voice their opinions are absolutely against it. This will make sure players become frustrated with Aeria and leave. What's better, $10 a day from 5,000 people or $500 a day from 50 people?
- Due to the problems MS create, it makes our chances of getting anything done shrink even more. It gives our already incompetent developers more things to fix.
as it seems the marketing department knows pretty well lc is a dieing game due bad sevice of devs and retiered gms
and as it seems they getting out what they can before the game is down at all
thats just what i see
sure it dont have to be like this and the game could exist many more years even playable with fun if the marketing strategy just changes
yes 1000 paying ppl with small amounts are better then 10 high valued
cos the 10 ppl payin alot getting bored of not beeing challanged
