I'm sure some of you have noticed (aw who am I kidding, I'm not that important...), but I have been posting way less lately. This is mainly due to the fact that I don't consider myself whining about bad luck or trashing parts of the game on a fan forum to be constructive of any way, and I don't like to sew seeds of discontent. But this time, I do elect to whine a bit. Please only read on by your own choice. I preface this that I am almost a day 1 player, and had some very good times with this game. That being out of the way, what changed that turned me off almost completely by now? I think it may have started with 3* magicites, but it wasn't something I really realised at the time. 2 factors being their difficulty level (completely new mechanics and tactics) and the very nature that they were meant to be farmed. I absolutely hate the fact that something that needs to be farmed needs this much effort and concentration. This is the kind of thing that burns people out. I was however able to clear all of them (but really sub-30), so it wasn't really apparent. Let's just say... I put up with it, but definitely didn't like it. We got 4* magicites. I can't beat them. I have good relics, I have the kit (maybe not element boosting armor, never consciously chased them), and yet I cannot beat them. My damage output is meek, even with stacking buffs, and I will just die eventually. Throw in some nice status ailments are a good middle finger from RNG. I honestly cannot bother. I am certain, that with repeated banging against a wall I could get them done, but I just cannot be bothered. And this is only going to get worse with the 5*s and the new torments. Another big reason is the F2P treatment. We have consistently been getting way less mythril every month (except for April, where we got 10 more..) since December compared to last year. And my pulls were just... horrible lately. You want to know how it feels to save up for 3 months for a festival, and get almost zero stuff you actually wanted? 375 mythril later... I know... And therein lies another problem? Why do I even bother getting new relics? I can faceroll all event content anyway, and I have given up on magicites. I was happy that we finally got daily missions and we currently have a 50 mythril login bonus to make up for half of the missed mythril. In reality? I am actually annoyed that I have to run 3 dungeons per day to get that mythril. So why am I not quitting right now? Couple of things do interest me in the future. Library of Guidance, Story Mode for example. I will probably hang in there until we get those (should be soon now), and the next fest and see if my interest in the game is rekindled, and will be collecting the mythril until then just in case. If not, it will be time to put the game down for me.
