The time you have to spend in this game to get to the end level is enormous, specially for new players who don't know the game which will just make it even harder, besides that the game is extremely unbalanced at the moment because ngd rarely touches this part of the game, to them, money is more important then the player experience.
The first thing you do in this game is grind until you are high enough level to enter the war zone which is an open area accessible through a wall that makes it impossible for the other realms to enter (unless they invade.) When you are high level the grinding doesn't stop though, you still have to grind for money so that you can pay for armor/weapon repairs (and arrows if you're an archer.)
Even though NGD made a promise that paying players would not have an advantage over non paying players in pvp, this is untrue, paying players has an easier time because they can buy boxes which gives them the items you have to grind for and the chances of getting something good is high, if you can't use it you can sell it to another player for more gold than you can earn by grinding.
The game focuses on rvr combat though where you have to capture all forts and castles of another faction to be able to invade another realm to steal their crystals, when all crystals have been stolen you can enter the door and talk to a dragon which will grant you a wish, all the people in the cave will vote on which wish they want and democracy will decide in the end.
One would think that you'd have to use strategy, coordination and skill to invade, but the reality is that the faction with most players online gets to invade another realm.
the idea of fighting a big war is pretty fun but will get dull pretty quickly and is not worth the enormous amount of time you have to spend on getting a character to level 60 not to mention the balance is horrible and you have to pay if you don't want to grind once you get level 60.… Expand
