Foenix Posted July 29, 2021 Share Posted July 29, 2021 NCSoft has acknowledged the disparity on Israphael. Today Asmodian-IS players all god a survey with lodas amulets to support leveling... They did this same thing on the original Israphael back in the day. It was the first attempted measure to balance a server that was also dominated by Elyos back then (no where near as bad as today). This measure failed and it will fail again. NCSoft, you do not have the luxury of time that you had in retail to make bad business choices. You are competing against a marketplace with modern games pulling from your tiny market share on a daily basis. You are not attracting a large number of new players and this measure would only POTENTIALLY fix issues if you were attracting new players daily still. They might see the quicker path to end game and choose this server/faction. However its more likely they would see these measures and understand that this game's appeal is in the RvR pvp that isn't possible with massive faction imbalance. And seeing this measure understand it's open acknowledgement of the server imbalance and choose another faction/server. Currently your churn rate is astronomical, it was going to be anyway since many players are quickly scratching that nostalgic itch and moving on. If you were to combine both servers you would have peak active players of ~4000(less 400 for bots). Imbalance is less noticeable with larger numbers and the experience would be better for everyone. Instead you have a server with 1000 peak players, 200 bots. and a 2:1 player imbalance. What are you hoping lodas amulets do? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
