There are a lot of “problems” with this game, yes, but honestly all the current problems are outshined by two things:
- Current Silute server’s hardware that cant handle 50 ppl on the same channel without completely breaking up.
- Arch stone fragment drop rate.
Today I wanted to talk a little about the 2nd issue. Currently the drop chance is so low that a player that actively does every activity in the game, every day, gets about 1 arch stone fragment every 3 months. Because of this we can assume it to be impossible, at a certain point, to get any progression in this game without: Having multiple accounts or spending a lot of real life money on the black market (aka buying silver from multi-accounters).
Right now the entirety of the game is basically that, and IMC has a huge finger in it: they calculated the drop chance of Arch Stone Fragment (a necessity, like blessed gems) to factor in for the people that have 20 bots farming CMs with macros and afking in dungeons, that is ridiculous.
At this rate, every new player that comes in this game wont see a path forward and quit. And this MMO is only as good as the players and friends playing it, if they are gone and there are no new friends to play with then there is no fun to be had here.
Arch Stone Fragment is a necessity, like Blessed gems, you need hundreds of it to progress in the game, so the drop rate shouldnt be lower than Vaivora items, which are supposed to be some of the rarest drops in the game.
If anything, the current drop rate only gives more power to gold sellers and botters and takes it away from players who play the game “the way it is supposed to”, while pushing away any possible newcomer.
IMC, this is not a problem to be fixed “in the next big patch” in 3 or 6 months or something like that, this needs to be fixed asap
