I just want to stress how bad the 9 day advantage is going to be for those who don't understand.
I, along with 20k+ others, are going to get to max level and max gear BEFORE the full launch of the game. Along with this, we are going to inflate the economy to the point where it is virtually IMPOSSIBLE for a non founder to get good gear without spending money. This is Nexon's design. They are indirectly making the game pay2win by providing such a huge advantage for the founders.
I personally hate the 10/10 release date, because it is in the middle of the week in OCTOBER. Everyone will be back in school, with assignments and homework. It isn't on a Friday or weekend, and its soo far into the future. Keep in mind that this game has been out for years . There are no major bugs left to be fixed. This game is also trying to contend with major releases of big games that are also coming out in october.
So please, try to understand why some of us may be upset that we paid 25-100$ to get a game that is likely going to be dead on release, and P2W within the first 2 weeks.
I don't have any idea how people play and get all the gear and everything in 9 days. If you play and get everything that fast ,what would keep you going back? It was easy to see how fast it was to lvl, so why even buy a founders pack?
