I am pretty sure that the EN version will be "Modified" once again to mollycoddle to the whiny babies. I mean why not? All their other wishes that turned into EN modifications have done nothing but mess up the game.
Doesn't it seem odd that all other version are unmodified; yet the population and overall enjoyment of the game is very high.
I really wish the GM's has the courage to make EN version match all others and just say, Play or Not.
Except TW GM's don't really enforce any kind of arbitrary rules, so now instead of no dual-clienting, only those with enough machines/technical skill can.
They don't have any arena/GVG rules, so everyone just afk/farm all day while trading crystals/exploiting heals and whatnot.
They don't care about inflation, so you'd be dealing with runaway prices.
They don't care about selling accounts, RMT, or any kind of cheating short of blatant hacking. So none of those "you can't go to pip unless you're 50", "you can't go to deepfathom unless you're 70" rules.
xtrap will make you enter a captcha about once every 3 minutes, whether you're doing nothing or not.
Teleports will all eat teleport stones, so you'll have to walk everywhere if you don't want to cough up the money for it.
Their GM team will basically ignore you unless you've spent 10,000 NTD (~$350 at once), or 50,000 NTD overall (~$1,700) (and thus making you a "VIP member") and even then they'll charge you for most issues requiring intervention.
They do not run any events other than those you see patched into the game.
So yes, let's synchronize EN with TW, I'm perfectly fine playing by their rules.
