I believe this game just doesn’t have enough going on to sustain itself. It was an interesting concept at first, but like all pay games, it gets old extremely fast. The tedium of the game is multiplied exponentially by the ridiculous cost of the good weapons/armor. Someone told me that to have the best gear (and be competitive) at the higher levels, fully upgraded equipment costs 1300 gold. That equates to about $130. I guess there are going to be that very small group of people who really like this game and will pump hundreds into it, and then there are the rest of us, with our subpar equipment.
The only thing there is to do is fight, and I am lucky to find enough people to do a skirmish to try to get competitive gear. And when I do win, I don’t get my battle points because the game glitches and freezes up.
