    Is Astellia already dying?

    By the way, speaking of my super-high standards...I just found this little gem:

    Is Astellia already dying?

    Mostly because I think that this game has huge potential and can be fixed. On a side note, I think I've been fairly open about the "standards" in question. Feel free to ask questions, if you are still unsure what the general idea of those proposals is. Except that nobody complains about...

    Avalon some first 24h impressions from EU_Aquarius

    @Playtil: Snowflakes are always like that, regardless of the topic. Their general view of the world goes along the lines of "everybody has the same rights, unless I personally disagree with what those other people are doing, in which case those people should be punished".

    So much RNG and less Astel progressing

    That's actually only half-truth. It's a known fact that small minority goes to forums (usually approximated at about 10% of the playerbase), but there's absolutely no correlation between forum-goers and players with complaints. Actually, in our case the number of folks with complaints is...

    Is Astellia already dying?

    Avator, it basically boils down to this: you can run a new legendary, which will take about 45-50 mins and roughly 20 potions and get nothing useful or you can run an old legendary, which will take about 15-20 mins and no potions...and also get nothing useful. Not counting xp and asper, because...

    So much RNG and less Astel progressing

    How are we supposed to know what you meant after the notion that mages and warriors stack AGI?

    So much RNG and less Astel progressing

    You're missing the point. Yes, in a very long term everybody will get every astel to 10 stars (assuming that the game survives that long - it will take a LOT of time). However in a shorter term, let's say 3 to 6 months, that won't happen, and some of your astels will have more stars than others...

    So much RNG and less Astel progressing

    That's a cool theory, but unfortunately it has nothing to do with how the game actually works. The only people who stack AGI are archers and sins. The rest stack their respective primary stats, and for a good reason. That being said, you're certainly free to build your main into whatever you...

    Is Astellia already dying?

    From my perspective it's not so much about what is being used, but the detrimental results of that activity. It's my personal opinion though.

    Is Astellia already dying?

    Sure, let's go with that. "I'm all for positive criticism" is only in effect when it doesn't apply to yourself, right? ;) I have a problem with them regardless of the game population. Heck, I have a problem with those people not rotting in prison somewhere, but that's just wishful thinking on...

    Is Astellia already dying?

    #1 & #2 would only make life easier for gold sellers. #3 will create an influx from steam "community" and likely alienate about the same number of players who tend to avoid that "community" like a plague. #4 is a good idea. #5 is the one I am curious about - why would you want people to be...

    So much RNG and less Astel progressing

    Yes, it's RNG. No, it wouldn't be surprising at all. We're talking about using astels in combat, not merely bumping one's crafting xp for example. One person gets lucky and rolls 160 points on the "right" astels, another rolls 10 points per card. That latter player may be getting good rolls on...

    Is Astellia already dying?

    Yep, something needs to be done quickly. Dungeon queue for dps is already at 45+ mins on NA server. That would cause an exodus like you wouldn't believe. Bless forums are still available on steam, in case you're curious how it goes...complete with local shills claiming that population of 200...

    Is Astellia already dying?

    I don't recall it having any lockboxes back in the day. Things probably changed over the years though. Fair enough. So, what is your definition of "normal progress" then?

    Is Astellia already dying?

    You do realize that not a single one of the 3 games you've listed is built around online gambling like Astellia and other Korean games, right? The whole argument is to make this game more like WOW, DDO, Neverwinter, SWTOR, FFXIV, etc. So, which approach of the two do you consider to be the...

    Is Astellia already dying?

    Reading comprehension is not your strong point, is it? I'll make the important part bold for you, maybe it will help: "1. You have no idea what "progression wall" usually refers to and elected not to ask for an explanation "

    Is Astellia already dying?

    So, to summarize: 1. You have no idea what "progression wall" usually refers to and elected not to ask for an explanation 2. In your opinion "tons of stuff to do" means various ways to gamble. This would be perfectly fine for an online casino, but were supposedly playing an MMO here... By the...

    So much RNG and less Astel progressing

    They do have a choice, you've just listed a few choices yourself. That's why the population keeps decreasing - players choose to go back to WOW, GW2, SWTOR, FFXIV, etc. You can easily find out by dueling people. We're pretty much talking about the same thing, I think. Failure to progress...

    So much RNG and less Astel progressing

    There are two reasons for raising astel star levels - to get points for stat increase and to bump the astels you actually use in combat. Getting stat points hits diminishing returns, first after 10 points, then after 20 points. Bumping astels that you actually use is subject to RNG, and the...
