I mean, they're paying money to help support the game. If you're a free-to-play player, you don't really have a right to complain. Free-to-play players still get a ton of rewards for free on a daily basis.
Players are part of the experience regardless of paying status. This is a massively multiplayer game and the paying players choose to spend money on massively multiplayer games because of that "content". If all free players were to leave then so would the big spenders. This is a well-established fact known among all "free-to-play" monetization experts.
This important section of Masteria, vital to producing ETC items necessary in upgrading Stirgeman gear, was removed. The official reason given was that it needed to be "preserved" as a "seasonal area".
It's been a terrible excuse though, because it has never since returned in any "seasonal" event. We're coming up on Halloween 2018 and it's basically a forgotten memory to the game team.
Anyway, I don't even know why I'm making this thread. The Haunted Prendergast Mansion is gone, Crimsonwood Keep is gone and so is Ridley and his exchange quest. All sorts of things are gone that I've been begging to get back and my pleas have fallen on deaf ears. Many things I loved about this game are gone and probably never coming back, and now it looks like even more things are going away with the closure of the Singapore content.
you people have been beating this horse for at least 6 years. Korea's not as "woke" as the west wishes the whole world would be, and as long as that's the case, the chances of this happening to Nexon's flagship game are very low.
The only reason it was so easily applied to Mabinogi was the rebirth system, and the fact that when you rebirth a character you're given the option to change its gender, but historically you were locked out of that option if you were in a marriage.
For now, Angelic Buster is gender-locked to female, and marriages are only between male and female characters. This will likely continue to be true for the foreseeable future as long as geopolitics maintain their current course. At this point, it would be more likely that marriages would just be removed from the game.
