Kakao has been watching over the forums for quite some time now. Listening to 1,000's of complaints and always wielding the power to do something about a few of them. Yet I have never seen any attempt to alleviate, or fix issues within their control besides exploits (which happen to affect the bottom line). The pets are a great example of this. They are deemed as nearly mandatory for the game. Anyone who chooses to really grind in the game is essentially required to have them. You could make a silly argument that you could play without them, but it would a better use of time to question why are they not easier to obtain today? This includes weight upgrades as well. Why are new players still dealing with this? There are so many more optional upgrades to sell. Things far less pertinent and more optional. You just want free stuff! This is the best part. I don't need any of these. I am fortunate enough to already have them, but many others do not and I know how difficult the game is without them. So when is Kakao going to start working with it's community instead of listening to threads saying.......... I spent $x,xxx but I just can't it anymore?
