I think the item mall is illegal.
Some features ( loot box / some mystery boxes / tiers / ignite / ...) from AGE is neither legal in my country, but it's abusing an disadvantage of globalism, that a company is being protected by the laws of a country / state where the main seat of that company is located.
Almost all companies which is offering their product in multiple countries is doing this trick.
i don't know something about the state laws in CA, but if the company is still around, then they are legit right ? You can report the company yourself ya know.
@killa ; i found your post interesting, and lol @ 5 times "listen to your customers". Even if the customers were being handled as a king, you cannot listen to all customers and keep these happy if you have 1000+ customers. It is true that they have to work on their communication towards the community.
Still a question for Superman0X ; AGE has released a Customer Service Team, but they aren't so visible because they are on the background. Was it intended or is it difficult to combine all AGE products to one team for customer's approval ?
PvP balance has been broken by both AGE and the community. I know that people like to slap AGE for this, but they should slap ourselves too. They are creating a hole in their wallet to get highest possible stats / enchants. I have written a big post about it before, and concluded that the main factor of such behavior is a wrong mentality ; being afraid of dying in PvP, followed by individualism.
And i didn't have talked about the developer's choice in many patches / newest features which harms the game negatively. I knew since the launch of enchants / OJ's that it would be "used" by AGE and destroy PvP partially.
however, i'm not sure that AP card sellers are destroying the game economy. it might be more popular these days but if you look to the economy status, it's pretty stable towards in 2009-2011 where fun card sales wasn't popular. I have visited this game recently and noticed less chats in trade chat, but with more fun cards offer. THAT has surprised me.
I believe that fun card sales have increased by two reasonings
-> high AP emphasis at AGE which results in customers seeking for AP sources, either from their own wallet or by selling ingame items to AP ( OP -> fun cards )
-> key to profit for fun card sellers. There is no way around it, you gain more profit in game items if you sell fun cards to OP.
Despite possible thefts and fraud, people still trade fun cards.
@ rekikyo , please stop with sucking your thumb for numbers.
