@sefer I've always disliked people who give advice/act as an authority on something they know very little about.
Theres always going to be one of you and every game, the main culprit that caused the demise, claiming nothing bad will ever happen from their actions, and just as I have done in the past, I,ll come back at that moment and say I told you so.
I gave warning this would happen. Was selling out to VAN and others like him worth it in the end? The loss of population, rep, was it worth it? The games sunk, and in the time I gave it too, 1 year ago. And here I am to do as I promised.
I was right. Maybe with your next game don't fall into the trap of catering to a toxic holya who throws money at you to get away with exploiting and ruining the game. Because online games can only survive if it has population sustain. You feeding someone bent on chasing away everyone hurt the game.
