Ok so I've been notiving the past month or so that trickster seemed to be lacking. Not many people has been online and you see less then usual parties in a field. Grrr I need a good way to list this out and start this off.
Now it's like this. Trickster Online have been slowly but surely been falling down ever since the revolution patch. There are points when it thrived but there are also points where it's decline and thriving points intertwine. Now there are several things that has caused this in trickster.
First: Scammers. Scammers are a major source of all our problems concerning the game. Now a days almost everyone is calling someone else a scammer. Wth I remember the days when the only scammer you saw or heard of was Pepsi Blue who eventually got banned.a few months later---------------->BAM! There's a freaking scammers list with aliases and all. wtf. Scammers are what causes the prices for items to go up. Each time a person is scammed out of say 20-60m since it does happen this causes people to increase the prices on the things they sell in order to make up for it. This causes the over all needed galders for each item to exceptionally increase whether it be rare past even equips or recent quest items like the attribute stone. Back where stones may have sold for 1m they've increased to an upper 5-8m pricing.
Second:Shops. Wth people. Some of these shops are very pointless with the old out dated weapons and items but I understand you guys. With all these myshop items the myshop points being flung everywhere and the scammer lurching about there is very hard way to be able to make money so what do you do? Why not actually put more productive things in your shops instead of the latest fusions and the freaking pharoh set which is WAY to over priced. Instead of being online for 2-4 days trying to sell a GS 141% lv 6 you could be selling quest items which could help other people level. There was a point in TO where in Mega you'd find alll the quest items you need now you can't find crap. Again I say wth. No wonder everyone went to Path to Snow Hill. How else are you gonna level if your to lazy to look for quest items?
Third: Lack Of Interest. No matter what you do or say there will always be that group that lv to 100-209 stop and goes "All I am gonna do is sit here and talk----->I am only going to PvP and nothing else----->Why do new quest when I have bug bears--------->yada yada yada. No one on this freaking game wants to do anything productive anymore. I remember when Path to Phantom school and the school it self was packed! With lv 30-60 noobs in parties trying to lv. Now it's empty. Didn't you guys like in your noob low level days to try to get as far as you can in high leveled areas. My own experience was to see who can make it to spicy island and get gao drills. This was at lv 63 and it was fun not to mention hilarious when you saw the 10k plus crit damage above the unconscious bunny. Anyways my point is that no one wants to explore on this game anymore or head new places and it's sad.
Conclusion: The game has fell from it's former glory. Now on the bright side we as the new main Trickster community can fix these problems somewhat slowly but surely we can change the way some things are ran around on the game. We could try changing what we sell in our shops. We could make parties into new area or rather old but good areas where all can benefit and really learn how to play the game. Stop buying Myshop from these Pay First guys. If it's pay first and you don't know the person it's no period. The same for Gift First don't know them say no and offer them the chance to hang out so you can get to know each other more and choose what option is suitable for you. I think we need a thread on who would like to buy myshop(if thats allowed?) where people can talk here on the forum about buying a/o selling myshop where it will be safe from scammers and the like if not fully but partially. I am all for it I recharge every 1-2 weeks 15-20k and I sell sometimes 3m/1k or 2m/1k. So that's about all I have to say on this right now. You Guys tell me what you think.
