This game, at it's core is awesome. If you have the ability to play it.....IN JAPAN, CHINA, OR KOREA, go for it, it's a blast.
The game is a wonderful version of Final Fight type gameplay at the core, with customizable characters through their abilities.
The issue is that Nexon US tossed the financial plan that has been successful in the Asian countries and tossed it out the window.
Not only did they dramatically change the exp curve to level, which throws off the progression of quests as you level and turns any level past 20 into a grind fest, but they now just released their 'cash shop'.
The cash shop is for Avatar items, items that actually change your character's appearance. In Asia, the idea of gameplay is for people to have multiple characters and multiple builds, as leveling isn't too intensive, but buying skill resets is kind of expensive. The overall result is each person has multiple characters to play with, and multiple sets of Avatar items to purchase.
Nexon not only mucked up the exp table, but they made the aquirement of avatar items....RANDOM. You only get to know that you're getting an item from your class. So you will end up with very random items, and the result is everyone looking crazy and spamming for item trades. The stats on said items are randomized as well, I might add.
So the result is a mess, and people that were hanging on will be leaving in dredges. Don't expect this to be worth your time for several months to years until Nexon decideds to change things, if they ever do.
