Listen, I love the concept of the rollback server. I even wiggled time in my schedule for the next two months literally just to play this game 2-4 hours a day. However, in day 2 I figured out the GMS markets are not going to be available until the end, and that was a instant deal breaker.
I know some people in ICC were like “I LOVE IT, SHUT UP”, and “GREAT CONTENT, JUST QUIT”. I get it, most get sensitive to the nostalgia of the old days. But lets be honest, the Global Market content should of been in this game SINCE DAY ONE. It was a poor release and we paid our time for YEARS compensating for a lack of market content. Then they gave us “Personal Shops”, which was BARELY an improvement. 1000’s of hours flying around in a yalm. Endless OCC spams waiting DAYS to get the item you needed because that person wasn’t on. Endless spam, not knowing ANY PRICES.
I’m sorry guys, I’m a very old player here, started in 2004, played till 09, and even some in 11,12,15,16.
But I am NOT doing this, absolutely not. I do not have DAYS of play time to spend shopping for items I need like that. I will not do it, no matter how much I loved this game. I don’t have the time, nor am I paying money for content that should of been in this game day one.
You know why they didn’t put GSM until so late? Because it allowed them to make MORE money by people having to play LONGER. Making more stops between A and B that delayed what they really wanted to do.
Sorry guys. I wanted to play, but this stops here. Not re subbing, My money is not supporting this nonsense.
Every single other idea I LOVED. This, I’m not doing. And for those that go “HEY, THEY ARE STAYING TRUE TO ORIGINAL SERVERS, AND ITS GREAT”. Well, I say both you and Funcom deserve each other. Not to mention how many players have quit, or will quit because of this. Population is already really low, this game doesn’t need this.
I’ve heard the Funcom forums have been very trigger happy in banning anyone who speaks out against funcom, or has different opinions. I hope this stays up here so we can see who feels the same.
For those who don’t. All I have to say is you must not value your time at all, in which case its perfect for you.
Rant over, Sad I couldn’t play. Glad I didn’t cancel my flight classes just yet. I hope it changes, if it does, I’ll come back. It’s that simple.
