Completely different expectation from Ads

Hi, I have tried to play Mabinogi because I was really impressed and attracted to the beautiful animated character photos I saw many times from advertisements, there are also plenty of them when I view the Media page, the wallpaper section. But, to be fully honest, I felt I was scammed right after logging into the game and trying the tutorials, everything was so different than what I was expecting! Everything was... nothing but pixels! What the heck? I mean, yeah sure advertisements are made to be exaggerations so they can attract more attentions, but personally I have never seen such a big difference, between beautiful animated wallpapers vs plainly colored pixel objects! Come on! Unfortunately, I couldn't take it for any longer than 10 minutes before I had to uninstall Mabinogi. I would have gladly stayed playing this game for weeks if not months, should the actual game resemble what was beautifully and amazingly advertised for the most part. It's such a pity, just to let the developers know. Mabinogi is probably still a popular game under Nexon, but at this point this game of colorful pixels is just not my dish AT ALL, Nao definitely looks so much better in 2d animated wallpaper than just plain pixels... really too bad, I really wished I could play what I was looking at.

    Oh Lord; don't try Minecraft then. You'll be left wondering how it is the best selling game of all time.

    I am not quite following the complaint. The game's technology is dated, for sure - but taking into consideration the intended visual style of cel-shaded graphics, as opposed to photorealism, I think Mabinogi looks fine:

    What are these "pixels" that you speak of? Can you clarify exactly what, from the above image, looks so hideous to you?

    I think it's just that someone expected high-end graphics and had no intention of enjoying the actual game itself.

    One less AFK statue in Dunbarton, I guess.

    Ah yes. The infamous 'Expectation VS Reality'. Gets 'em everytime.

    Don't worry, they'll catch some new fish with the big updates they're working on.

    I remember you. You had already visited this game a year or so ago, supposedly, and previously made a complaint thread about it.

    You're trolling. I doubt you even played MapleStory.

    I guess we'll see you again next year when you choose to troll again. See Ya.
