1) Level cap – 42.
2) New location for 40-42 levels.
3) Cursed items. Players will have chance to receive new type of items. Cursed items don’t give stat bonuses. Instead they make attributes lower. E.g. helm which added +100 to your Luck will give -100 when cursed. Cursed items may drop from heroic instances bosses. Also one of player’s items may become cursed after death. Any curse can be removed through special ritual.
4) Cash Shop consumables will now vanish after 7 days after you’ve bought them.
5) New boss in Demon City.
WHAT. THE. FUCK????
Small Level Cap increase: Cool
New Zone to level in: Cool
New boss: Cool
Cursed items that will probably need a CS item to remove: NOT. COOL.
CS consumables that disappear seven days after you purchase them: ABSOLUTELY. POSITIVELY. NOT. COOL.
Yeah, I am pretty much done. Astrum Nival just does not get it. Not in any way shape or form. I don’t blame this on gPotato, these decisions are coming straight from AN. Regardless, this is idiocy at its finest. A great game is now dead to myself and thousands of potential players. A sad thing really.
I had my doubts about the F2P model and, unfortunately, Astrum Nival has proven my initial foreboding correct.
Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.
