i had a guildie with actual suicidal thoughts because of soulstones planes. think of what you're doing..
before the merge, i could barelly get chest from boar.
after the merge, that chest is a myth unless u play a class that can burst DPS IN LESS THAN 5 seconds cuz thats how much bosses stay alive.
SSP is literally pushing people out of the game for not being competetitive enough or for not playing the right class.
I advertised this game for 5 years to aloot of people. from all of them, only 1 still plays the game.
When i played in blade and soul china, i literally fell in love with this game. the burden didnt feel that high(well..i played from lvl36 to blackwrym introduction in china, if i played more..i might have a different opinion about that too) but compared to my experience in china, this is just a dirtied, bleak and awful experience of what it could of have been..
