    Is the argument still revolving around whether or not they use MLM? i thought it was pretty much decided that they were.

    Funny, I concluded we had pretty much established they aren't using MLM, being more of a single tier referral system. 

    Regardless what you call it, they did figure out a way to run a very successful campaign at a time when I thought the market was suffering from KSer burnout.

    Tim E said it well, not a direct quote but something along the lines of 'gamers have proven once again there is no monetization hill we can't climb'


    If it was just a single tier referral system then there would not be remuneration involved, instead you have the company themselves selling the 'game' and then you have the next level down where people who have bought the game then are paid for 'selling' the game to other people, hence the MLM part, it does not matter how many tiers there are, as long as there is at least one of them in addition to the 'origin' for it to be classed as being MLM.

    Still not quite sure what sort of game this is even after visiting the site.



    Small world survival type?


    With a Harvard Law Professor overseeing the political system?  A communism simulator no doubt.



    He appears to be an anti trump liberal tbh, i am not sure i would be interested in anything he has a hand in, as its likely to be full of propaganda.

  • Black Desert Online now has over 28K players on STEAM

    We just might hit 20K today!



    The crazy thing is, i was tempted to buy the steam version as its only like £4.00 even though i already have a regular copy of the game, silly i know as i don't need it, but its a great game and i am a sucker for bargains. :p

    Might want to consider that for those that speak english, the NA megaserver is a better choice than the EU one, this is particularly true if you are in the UK etc.
