As a Free to Play gamer myself since the days of MapleStory’s beta phase, it really pisses me off seeing how game companies out there are trying their best to milk gamers dry. Back in March 2011, I posted about Luna Plus Korea getting shut down as the developer (Eyasoft) is taking a long hiatus (link). Subsequently, gPotato emailed me in June 2011 and asked me to remove their company name, after I mentioned the North American server might be affected (link).
And to no surprise, they promised that updates will still arrive for Luna Plus and Iris Online, another of Eyasoft’s game. After a check, the only noticeable game content update Luna Plus got was a party match-making system (link) in July 2011, which was followed by tons of Cash Shop updates leading to the closure announcement.How many of you actually fell for it? Iris Online is currently still active, I dare say it will follow suit soon.
