I just want to say that I quit this game today.
Not because of the thousands of gold I lost which is pretty much upsetting to say the least, but for the unacceptable "mistake" you guys made. A "mistake" because it was not a mistake, it was intentional. You guys waited for the last minute to announce the change. So you could benefit the most and screw the players.
I'm used to dealing with Korean game companies like ESTSoft, NCSoft, Devsisters and so many others (you can check some of my work at schuu.wordpress.com by the way). I've never seen such a lack of respect in my gaming life.
I thoroughly calculated the amount of Radiant Energy needed for 5 hepta gems that would be 140 gem powder (the 6th not included being an Obsidian that works differently). My currently 957 AP would go to 1020 AP. I sold valuable items (2 Premium Transformation Stones, 1 Empyrean Spirit Stone and so on...) in order to make my stock of REs. All this week I've been working on it.
The good thing is: I've been playing BnS since July 10th this year plus I'm f2p. So I neither wasted that much time or money on the game. I just started playing because my friends invited me. One is already in hiatus because he's going to Japan soon... Just sad to leave my other friend behind.
People are afraid to mention their chars, but I'm not that guy, I don't have pride or anything to "preserve". So, say goodbye to Ryan Higa and my alt Liza Koshy. Bye.
