it's really fucking sad how dead this game is, i remember snarbo being full of newbies and i could get nonstop parties
Aww shit another SK thread. I haven't played this since before they removed the mist system for elevators. The only iffy thing I hear is that the content isn't really different than from back then.
The game went downhill after the introduction of Mission mode. Every new update killed previous content and ruined the economy even more. The only thing that stayed relevant was Chaos Set (still the best, even after the release of the new sets from pay2enter dungeons) and the weeb sword (that got buffed because of a event-only reskin had an extra effect).
It's really sad because the original idea was awesome and the gameplay is pretty good.
That thread inspired me to finally earn Dauntless Delver.
The mist is gone, but in its place is a much more frustrating crafting system. You now need to grind these fire-stone things to have a CHANCE to successfully upgrade an item to its next level. And instead of using energy to revive, you use a rarely dropping item.
I'd prefer if the mist came back, in comparison.
The game would probably be saved if they loosened the noose around players' necks. The grind is practically Korean.
We still wouldn't be getting new content fucking ever, but at least it would return to playable.
Shoulda seen my face when I got this in two rolls
