    Every time someone makes a thread about the game being on life support when they don't play it, I get a new pair of wings :V

    Quality ovet quantity. The game is doing quite fine, and the updates of late have been pretty good, especially on the QoL front.

    I didn't know about the death dance skill that seems cool but the whole "boosting accessories called Soul Stones to go with it" sounds exactly what I mentioned. Just grinding for extra over kill stats and throwing money at the game is hardly an update. Like events and giant update in essence are just grinding in disguise. Giant update just makes their quality of life better so you can just do what you were doing easier

    The chain sounds very interesting because it has been years since the last skill set or even addition or previous ones. (What even happened to hidden skills?) I'm sure everyone here including myself have lots to do before they complete the game but if you see the game dying soon whats the point in putting in the effort?

    Soul Stones don't cost money, you run the dungeon to get them...

    We're overdue for Tory Ravine.

    If Tory Ravine happens to be the discreetly alluded 'Home of the fomors' that Barry (at Belvast's Pub) mentions , then yeah. Let's hope we get that eventually.

    The game is still getting content updates. It's nowhere near dead in the sense of being abandoned by the developers. New content takes time, but our whiny ungrateful player base blitzes though everything new as fast as humanly possible so they can get back to having nothing to do (and complaining about it) again.

    The biggest danger we have is the player base on the NA servers dwindling to the point where there aren't enough paying players still around to justify the costs of keeping our servers in operation.

    It's not the players fault for things being completed, smart MMO making includes designing for content longevity as well as entertainment.

    The player base for the game is on the decline, you just can not argue against that. Just because we have content updates doesn't mean we won't face the same thing as EU, not enough profits to keep the game running.

    Seeing Chapter 6 is Focused on the Divine Knights with the extremest Fomorians being lead by someone called Mother Ladeca, we Might see Tory Ravine in G21. ("Might." Let's not hold our breaths lol)

    This. Updating contents in NA mabinogi doesn't take much effort/money because they're not making contents from scratch, they're just bringing what KR made already....Our mabi will keep being updated unless Nexon gives up on kr mabi (which won't happen for a very long time). 'It keeps getting updated' isn't a proof of game doing good in our case. You'd have to see how much profit they make....

    Another FUD thread. Why Nexon is allowing such threads to exist in the first place? I thought such things are again'st TOS.

    the games dynamics just shifted now the game has aged. that's all.

    if you really want to know if the game is dead or not. goto the games wiki on the front page you'll see the activity.

    majority of activity is always on marketing channels.

    can these threads die already now?

    Therefore we need more gachapons? I don't know if this is the only answer or the only way the NA server can survive.

    You would have 20k Nx!

    Yeah it seems like they don't care about the forums anymore. Should we test this theory out by having a political/religious taboo debate?

    They are probably making an avalon based dungeon instead of actually developing an entirely new area.
