That… I think is the only memory which will ‘remain alive’, from yesterday fun and the only pleasant moment in the whole 2009 year, in this game (for me at least). In, Bloody Plain yesterday, all the people I talked to, felt a new spirit, a new beginning. This was the only day in this year when players didn’t calculated at the last cent what they spent from the mall, for eg. KG. It was what should be this game all about: fun.
Yesterday was the day when the players with no achievement in game, players who don’t help this game to survive spending money in mall, players who only lived on the back of others, but who worked hard to cultivate a state of anxiety in game, forum and among official team ( look how wonderfull I am, I owned you, pwned you…you are just a noob, X class was made to be the best…) remained on the edges and were forgotten. Bloody Plain was almost full, all day and all the roles really tried, in pvp, theirs ability and skills. Veterans, after long months of absence, logged to test so called “PvP balance”.
The true professionals of those who are called ‘nukers’ were in the middle of events, and players who always roars with wooden language like : ‘you are pwned’, ‘you suck’, looked from the outside, from safe zone. And there were few … but it looks with big mouth on 9dragons forum and in official team.
Than… in the next morning we found out it was only a dream, a cheap dream, a cheap illusion…
I think we all heard this phrase : “American dream” and maybe we dreamed of the promise country called America (actually the U.S.). This term was first used by James Truslow Adams in his book “Epic of America” written in 1911. He says that “the American dream is the dream of a country where life should be better, more full, more rich for all the possibilities for each depending on skills and results”. But, he also said that an upper-middle-class European can’t understand this concept … I think he is right, either side I look I can’t understand how Acclaim thinks. What is the dream of these people?
If they fix the pvp ‘dmg’ bug in less than 10 hours, why they need 3 years or maybe more to fix the pvp balance in this game ?
Happy New Year!
