Are we still going to have a strong presence at launch? Feels like interest has died down a lot

Most of us who gave them $165 are waiting to see what build makes it to live. If it's the Korean bullshit grind fest money grab, that is currently implemented, than I think some of us are just going to chalk this one up to a loss and walk away from it.

I personally don't want to spend hundred of hours grinding Gilda stars, nor will I give them more money for pixels. Other than this fact, the game holds almost every criteria that KGB looks for in a game to support. Hopefully Trion can put some pressure and leverage the business cases to net some positive changes for title that could be one of the better ones in a while.

I thought the explicitly mentioned they were not adopting this model in western versions of the game? I'm pretty sure trion is keeping the content that forces the game to remain open world / sandboxy. from what I understand the kr version has a lot of instanced content?

Also, myself and some of my friends from wow and other games will be around at launch. we're just hanging out now watching how the betas go and seeing how they update content, but we will most definitely be around.

We are pretty much in the same boat Exey. Just waiting and watching until we get closer to live launch to see what the build is going to play like. I expect that at the last couple of beta cycles right before launch the traffic will pick up as KGB checks out the min/max options under the final beta build for live launch.

Upside on this title is huge. They just have to execute and not succumb to bullshit for grind and for moola.

Told you so. It just like Japan and schoolgirl tentacle rape porn, they just can't be any other way...

Too bad that there is actual interesting game under that heap of dung.

yea i think trion recognizes that that wont fly here so they're fixing it. XL knows they fucked up in kr so they're trying to do shit right here.

"Both Trion Worlds and XLGames are eager to maintain the game's sandbox nature."

I think this is false hope. Grinding is ingrained into Korean culture, it goes well outside of gaming. I don't see this meaningfully going away.

This is not unlike EA trying to develop dating sim game for Mormon polygamist audience. They might understand in concept what is involved, but chances of them getting it?

How many KGB are still playing this game? I'm going to play the beta this weekend and might pick up an alpha key if I like it. Has everyone ditched this in favor of SOTA? Maybe I should check that game out too.

Myo long time!

SOTA and Star Citizen are guild favorites but their development time in still unknown. Both are pre-alpha.

Some still play AA not sure who is left on the alpha server. I tried out a few of the beta weekends. The game has talent and we had a lot of people playing initially. Most are waiting till closer to launch to retest the game. Feels like they are dragging it out for more money.
