    If I may say something, this appears to involve only Nexon Korea. It has nothing to do with the American audience, in general...

    I didn't read the article but I mean wasn't Nexon America also selling? I would assume they'd try to go under the same umbrella, I mean Tencent has Riot games at least and their monetization system is fine, just cosmetics basically how it is in MS2 right now anyway, so either way don't think it'd be a huge deal even if they did go to Tencent.

    Lmao if tencent took over this game will 100percent p2w as large as scale as Down syndrome ms1. League is a moba can’t really be pay to win, but tencent also has a lot of mobile moba variants and if u played any of them all the new cash only hero r broken asf and require no skills to play. I mean nexon isn’t any better company as far as p2w but tencent will be worse.

    No, it actually isn't so bad, if you have followed mmos.com they have a podcast every tuesday sometimes friday
    So far every gaming company that tencent has brought has been left to do there own thing with basically zero interference

    Tencent bought path of Exile and from what ive seen over the last 6 months or so of them taking it over nothings really changed.

    Lets be honest though, is it even possible to manage this game any worse then what the current devs are doing. This game is in absolute freefall and is in such a terrible place with the rng walls that the majority of the remaining players would welcome additional cash shop items such as wpn/armor/acc rerollers etc.

    The game is run by Nexon USA. Tencent may own Nexon but it will have zero impact on the game. Tencent it’s not just a game company and on top of that they have their own game division that run games like CMS2. It’s like Volkswagen own Audi but it is Audi that design the car not Volkswagen... what are you smoking

    They could if they wanted to. Given the state of this game, they prob will. POE and league are already successful, but Nexon, not a single gud game, well money milking game but ms1.
