Times has changed, for worse unfortunately...
Indeed. The disappearance of actual GMs has bothered me a lot in these games. Even a single person working full time as a GM would be able to eliminate a large portion of the bots and gold seller spam.
But the issue is, there is a lot of downtime with such a job. Some days for a GM, there might be very little work to do, and companies don't tend to like to pay people to do essentially nothing even if it's only a few minutes let alone possibly hours. So instead of having an active GM they just use a reporting system. So you only have a person working on these things when it's reported, but of course, since it's not their main job, the priority on it becomes pretty much none existent. So issues don't get solved quickly like they would if there was an active GM on.
Not really a big fan with how some companies rather cut costs than to offer better services. I get more money is nice and all, but we are talking about a very small amount in the grand scheme of things when it comes to how much money they make annually. Nexon is pretty much at the top of free to play companies as far as I am aware unless you want to count Valve now. I know Nexon and Valve has some sort of history together which always weirds me out. XD
The post right above mine explicitly detailed how the Transparency badge works, I literally told you how it works in my own post and you are STILL TRYING TO ARGUE ABOUT THE FUNCTION OF THIS ITEM WHEN YOU AGREED THE PRICE WOULD BE FAIR IF IT DID EXACTLY WHAT IT DOES.
If it's true, then you are correct. I am fine with the price. No need to caps, it looks stupid. Also, try and not to get all pissy like that. I didn't even do anything to you.
I will even quote the post just for you, since apparently you can't read anything above your own posts in a thread.
Nexon did their best to remove from meret shop things like inventory expansions, dungeon tickets, extra revive for raids, buffs etc, that you see in typicall dungeon crawler, to make the shop have as few things that looks "mandatory" as possible and yet people are still complaining that something is "to expensive"...
You wot m8?
Ya, not surprising because whether or not something is too expensive is based on what the price is. Not the types of items in the shop lol. Just because a game doesn't do pay to win, doesn't mean something can't be too expensive in the shop. I don't even know how you logically come to these arguments. They don't make sense.
