    @Dai_Mata_Rei I see plenty of people on, but apparently some players have been having issues with Channel 1 lagging like Gaea mentioned. Then there's Housing having issues, so if things have been a bit dead, it might just be players waiting to pop back in after Maintenance tomorrow refreshes everything. It also depends on what time you're online; school's back in session for many players again. XD

    I can feels you. It so dead and quiet, barely any new players to even recruit to join a guild, or/and when you find that one person who does talk you find him creepy and awkward. Also those people who are so powerful don't even group up since they can solo most of the contents.

    To have a shop up pretty much.
    Or sometimes I just forget to close out mabi when I'm done with it.

    You also have to realize people are just starting back to school after winter break, or going back to work. So it's gonna be kind of slow for a couple of weeks most likely.

    @Tw1n Well yeah. If they'd stop milking players dry and fix the game up a bit maybe it'd have more players. Keyword being maybe.

    I'm not.

    I stopped liking what the game, and my old friends had to offer. Now I just draw things and animate all of the stuff I never got to see in this game. I don't think I'll ever reinstall this game ♥
    I don't need to

    A lot of times, I'm not afk. Rather, I'm chatting in PM or with guild; or maybe I'm involved in the wiki or looking at various stats or some other research. Not too long ago, I was standing around with four or five other people having a conversation in public. The conversation had lulled about 15 seconds before when suddenly, someone who had just logged in, made a snide comment about our quality game play. They weren't around to see the conversation that had been going on for well over an hour; they just assumed we weren't doing anything because they didn't see us doing anything in their own reality.

    I do stuff every day on mabi; but right now, I don't have any particular goals.

    There's no way to make us all happy; people will complain no matter what. But in the end, it's your fantasy life - play it how you want.

    Kind of obvious but maybe someone have interesting point of view on this. Maybe even a creative solution to make people more active.

    Beside i have not seen community content like maid cafe, festivals, concert, scheduled raid, roleplay, or other in game community gathering in months.

    I remember there used to be a lot of this
    Cause nexon be all about those afk events. Just when I think I can just log onto mabi, do what I came for, and go..... AFK event. Its like they're trying to get people to just have mabi muted in the background like some phone game or something.

    they can't make everyone happy, but the goal should be to at least make the marjoirty happy, not the minority lol



    more people are reaching the end game, where there is no reply cnotent worthy of sticking around for. the game b ecomes a chat simulator and thats it. the fantasty life is ending because most content is old / borning revamps

    1. I gacha often enough that I try to have a shop running whenever I am online. The game still lags even with top of the line computers when you're on the current market channel, so doing anything with a shop up, especially if you need to CC to reset events or quests is annoying and I just don't bother.
    2. I have mastered almost every skill I care about with the exception of a few very grindy skills that I don't care to work on while I am not getting 2x training for them.
    3. There are no interesting events going on, OR the current event does not require active participation.
    4. I like to multitask, so I play additional games or watch anime, listen to music, browse the internet, etc.
    5. There really is not much to do in this game when you are such a high level or have so much gold you can just buy anything you need. All my crafting skills are r1 and I cna just buy any materials I need.
    6. I hate spamming dungeons, especially after the dungeon renewal. I'm over 7k total and not being able to 1-shot spiders EVERY time (even with weak guns) is actually kind of frustrating. I have little reason to do dungeons in the first place so I have even less reason to care.

    Have to be logged in to have a shop open, but being online gives other benefits too. You gain guild points from time online. Royal alchemists also gain points from my understanding. It's nice to come back after feeding the horses or various household duties to look through shop ads. Sometimes I leave Mabi playing just for the background music while I'm cleaning or dusting. Nice not to have to log in every time.

    I used to be more active, but now with the outlandishly difficult end-game updates, I really do not like the game anymore. Alban Knights Training Grounds are filled with instant-aggro crap that two shots everyone with 1k damage a hit. More and more "trash mobs" have Advanced Heavy Stander and also two hits everyone. Raid battles are laggy and clearly shows how the game's engine cannot handle that many things in a small area.
    This game has been going downhill and is going beyond rock bottom.

    These days I have been playing another game that has Dinosaurs and base building. Mabinogi just feels stale to me. I could get into playing mabi again, but the other game is more interesting. I still log in by the way.
