I get offended when.

Post  Valkyrie on Thu Dec 08, 2011 11:38 pm



MMOs fail to acknowledge the existence of players of color. The female hairs are ( imo ) too animish, when I look for cash shop cosmetics I look for items that make my character(s) look black to let everyone know; I'm a black person. These make people look like wannabe asians.

Yeah I see what you're saying but I don't think there's a whole lot of black people in Korea. I do think they're pretty into that whole everything looking cute/ chibi and the game is kid-orientated

I can accept the fact that black characters make very rare appearances in anime with the exception of animes that focus more on realistic appeal such as cowboy bebop as opposed to that lucky star shit. However, when you're making a mmo they really should put into consideration players from around the world because there ARE going to be players from all over playing their game. Not seeing anything that even remotely appeals to black players I find offensive.

There IS a afro in the cosmetic shop, I'll give Hamelin that much, but seriously its all clown looking and green, wtf?

Sounds like the perfect afro for me lol but sadly I has no cash and only get it from surveys.

I'm not a fan of surveys, though they don't technically give you viruses, it is common to get unwanted adware from them. I once got SushiGames adware from a free offer and I swear no matter how many times I uninstalled Sushigames from my PC it kept coming back every reboot. Not the first time I got adware that won't gtfo my PC so I stopped doing them all together. Well, only the video ones I do.

My advice? Don't do them if you don't have a crabby PC you don't care about.

Naw, you're just inexperienced with computers. Get Super Anti Spyware. removes adwares, spywares, and malwares.

I don't remember what anti software I had at the time but currently I have a paid version of malwarebytes, its been good to me for sometime now. My main problem is getting them to work. When I used to play La Tale a friend of mine found some funky way to redo the same offers readily and in exchange for logging into my Account and doing them, I'd plv him in game. It was overall a good trade on my part seeing I plv people for free all the time.

I just never felt comfortable with free offers, I recall trying to play some of those game offers and my PC keep telling me this site was reported for (Insert reason)

Believe it or not there's been several games I've played where I obtained a ton of premium items without paying a dime, most people are too lazy to train themselves and I always eventually meet a lazy casher which buys me everything.

An example is my high levels in Wind Slayer, once I started becoming recognized as a power leveler people bombarded me with x2 exp for 30 day offers to the point where I had 3 of them and a entire 30d premium outfit >u<

Da fudge? Dang I wish I could do that. Then I'd have a fortress of free stuff lol. I also have malwarebytes full version. I got it for free xD. Hell, I get almost all of my programs full version for free. Banzai to cheapness!!!!

Leeching is stupid. You can get scammed and you get less exp if you really killed monsters yourself.

>;] Peeps no eye iz alls bout mai bidness, cuz eye gits ma shit be4 I evin keal da furst monsta. Pey hup ore nao pee lev biach !

But ya lol ! In every game I ever played I have very very very seldom met people besides the crazy people who are always trying to reach max level which 99% of those are hardcore cashers that spam exp boosters like to power grind as much as me.

And yes the leechers get less exp when I plv them, however they don't have to lift a finger to do so, they just afk or often times when I was leveling my pally client, I'd train while he slept. It worked for both of us in the end. I had x2 exp for 30 days, ( which is more exp than if I would've trained solo ) and he got free exp. Especially good in WS1 where if you did the first class glitch, 50% + 100% = 200% exp instead of 150% exp.
