Hello there fellow MMORPG players,
I have something I need to tell you about a recently released MMORPG known as Prius Online.
Released just a few months ago by gPotato gala-net.
Now before I get into the details you must know that, I was a dedicated player to this game, not just some poor sap who got level 20 and then quit. No I was one of the number 1 PvE players in the games current existance. First level 50(1st release Level Cap) of my class, 2nd to level 60(Live Expansion level Cap) and amoung the first 10 to hit level 60, as well as the 10th anima of my server and 4th to obtain Gigas. Alltime Historical unchangelbe records, When it comes to Prius Online USA, I am not a newb who passed by, I am a game legendary there, I'm not saying this to brag, not by a long shot. Instead I am telling you this to state that what im about to say isnt from the eyes and ears of someone who didnt experiance the game, but rather from a most dedicated player.
Now onto business.
If you value your sanity and pride as a MMORPG player , you'd do best to avoid this game, and there are several reasons as to why you should.
First off, the US/Global version of the game is much different and was notibly altered from its Korean, Taiwanese, and Japanese published versions. And this has created much of an unveiling of the severe greed mongering that has been applied to the game in order to money sink people, and give next to nothing in return. First off, just for starters, the upgrade system was not only altered but rigged as well.
The upgrade rates are obsurdly low, and the upgrade safe range is nil. The altered the upgrade system to require a safety item EVERYTIME you attempt an upgrade. Some of these are obtainable in game, but the main source of supply is via their shop. the main item in which everyone will have to purchase or else risk their current upgrades is called a Master work steel, and they cost 32 fucking USD, for 10. I personally have bought and used these items to attempt to make an upgrade. On one item my Dark Raven Bow a level 54 weapon, I spent 80 USD+ on this weapon and it was only +8. The upgrade range is +15.
I not only used the upgrade items, I also used the success aguments which cost 7USD for 10. for each 10round attempt it costed me a totaly of 39$, I tried it twice. 20 items 20tries one freaking upgrade level up. from +7 to +8.
According to the JP upgrade rate, i should have had at least 18.5% chance per attempt of getting the upgrade teir to +9.
18.5% is pretty high compared to the average majority. This isnt just bad luck, this is defying probability and chance. For ever attempt the probabilty of getting an upgrade goes up based on counting. 80$ for a single level up teir on a mid range weapon is obsurd. Oh, and I am not the onlyone reporting a change to the games system. I have a chinese friend who plays the Taiwan version. he spent roughtly 1/4 what I did, and got from +9 to +15 in only 13 attempts. that is average too. the average person uses about 13~17 to get from +9 to +15 on taiwan server. The statistical rate is serverly lowered.
The upgrade system wasnt the only thing to show a change. I, haveing played the TW version long before the USA version had noticed that a certain quest reward had been removed from the US version. This item that WAS free in all versions except the US, is now sitting in their shop for 20USD. From free and standard to privledge and expensive and paid players only.
It gets even better though. The GM and administration staff is pure corrupt. Talk about game masters on a power trip, and playing favorites. I have a video of pure and clear cut evidence of harassment, Blatent and utter harassment by a single guild in the server that I played, And the Game Masters Did NOTHING about it. These people werent just harassing me,They were out right preventing me from the game. What makes this even worse, is that first off I received a 1 day ban a few weeks before for the EXACT same behavoir, THEN I get this email when i sent in 40+ screenshots as evidence of their bevoir.

Thank you for contacting us.
We investigated the PK history of the players you mentioned and we couldn't find evidence of any of them actually killing you during July, let alone killing you repeatedly abusing the channel system.

Heres one of my following responces
To further the proof of harasment seeing as how no one on the prius team was beleiving what was going on I have a video of the people in question of the ticket
Harassing me with the PK system. systmatically having several people set up ready to PK my character as soon as i swap channels and resurrect.
This is only 3~4minutes of a 10minute ordeal in which the teleporting feahter was unusable and the players were attacking me in such away that i couldnt leave for 10 minutes.
Absolutely ruining my leveling session, and destroying any confidence i had about the game.
I was banned once for this behavoir, I feel very betrayed, and am very distrusting of the company since this has been going on for weeks.
These players have robbed me of HOURS of gameplay time in which i could have been making my character better or have had a more enjoyable experance.
I have sent in reports before and have not had any replies.
Nothing has been done about these players who abuse the system and and harass others out in the open.
These people have been allowed to harass other players without consequence for months now.
Oh and in the end, the best part of all, Is many people started to speak out about this sort of behavoir, and they became the whistleblowers about the games corruption. Every one of them has been in game banned for temporary periods and or also on the ir forums as well. Infact aposter on the forums risked a permanant ban to note it to the rest of the community. I myself began revealing stuff about the game, becoming a whistle blower. I wasnt just an average poster either. I was a member of the volenteer team. I was one of their Wiki Editors. Their official reason for removing me was that I was in active, untrue seeing as how i edited more than 2 of their other editors combined. One of which hasnt made more than a few icon uploads. The made the message clear, speak out and get banned. Also to add on, One of their famed wiki editors, was a person known to banbypass and hack and host Private servers of their Gpotato games, and the team was FULLY AWARE of this as well. He was appointed head of the wiki staff and they GMs LITERALLY bent over to his will. They found the policy of crying mercy to a 16 year old brat a better idea than offcially dealing with him. The gave him the keys to their infomation source and let him loose. All people ever did was complain about him being a complete asshole and a prior bannie of the Gpotato portal(has bragged about an 80+ permanant global bans from Gpotato). Corruption at its finiest. Mind you this person wasnt demoted and dealt with until someone managed to screenshot one of his slip ups and they had to remove him.
Mind also about their PvP gear incedent that turn into an absolutely unessisary and beyond stupid fight between player base and Prius staff.
In the game, there is a PVP arena sysstemt hat no one uses unless its to wintrade and get PvP gear to be better at open world PK. More than understand able seeing as how Prius's host PvP is utter horse crap and teams always end up stacked and one sided.
The Game masters flipped out and called the entire player base who had this gear, Illegtimate, cheaters and exploiters. They made such a big deal about it that it was even threated to remove items that players had spent 100 of USD on. Not only did this evoked alot of anger in the player base it turned the Attitude towards the game on its head.
So whats the result of all this? a near 90%~95% population loss. the games launch was assumed nearly 20k people, now? less than 1000 players between 2 servers.
Severaly thousand disgruntled pissed of players, and a desperate attempt to recover their game.
Well? To bad for them they pissed off the wrong people. They pissed of the honest to god, true blue dedicated players. And some of us Wont rest until the game closes its doors.
So fair warning to anyone who wants to risk it, But you cant say,I didnt warn you. Player beware, Prius is a terrible MMORPG in the US/Global region. I suggest you find a better atlernative than this corrupt game.
Oh and I didnt even touch on the 3D engine restrictions, the lack of any serious PvP, the enumerous game glitchs and bugs that prevent some classes from being able to play, and so many faulry and unattended to screw ups. Oh yeah HORRIBLE voice acting, gender locked classes and a complete stupid story that has next to NOTHING to do with you, your character or your anima, other than the fact that you live on the same planet and just happened to ahe a quest there.
Good luck finding a better game. wont be hard, I suggest IRIS ONLINE, but what do I know? Im just a MMORPG PVE Lord, speaking out about a terribley corrupt game.
