As an old player who's been through hell in this game i can't stop reflecting over what has changed in and outside the game since i quit, roughly 5 years ago. It seems to me the game has gotten worse in pretty much every single aspect. Maybe It's because NTT's staff consist of old K2 staff? I noticed Sean Lee was the CEO of NTT. Here is a list of things that never got fixed or got worse after a fix:
- Disconnecting from server used to be a problem in the beginning when there were not enough server capacity for the amount of players. Is this not one of the most essential things to have working? Players being able to log in and actually play the game? How can this possibly have gotten worse? Are there more players nowadays? I doubt it. Maybe on new servers, but not spread over the game.
- Login bugs where you instantly disconnect after logging in. Sometimes with an error message saying you've been banned for using illegal programs. Really? This was fixed 6 years ago, and now It's returned in a new shape? What made them feel the need to implement this feature again? Did players complain about being able to log in and stay online?
- NPC's are still not working. Instead of adding options to the existing NPC's, they added more NPC's. Now we have NPC's everywhere and only half of them have options of value.
- Two-second-delay is nowadays considered good. The lag is so bad that you can not use Genie, as it gets affected by the lag and kills you.
- Getting to know other players don't happen in this new version of the game. You join a party and then you go afk. The bot will do it for you.
- Nothing has been made to spread the PVP. It's still all about running with the train through bowl to base. Why not make decent exp/farm spots in cz so that people will raid again? It's such an easy fix... Can't believe it just won't ever happen.
- Level and gear cap has been raised. At the same time the bosses and mobs stay the same. To get the best gear in the game you need 1 warrior and 1 priest. If the bosses were harder to kill, people would fight over them. Bring back the use of a well organized clan.
- Tickets sent to CS is now never being answered, compared to the old week you had to wait back in the days.
- Do i need to mention all the hacking?
