    Wouldn't the opposite be true in that case? If Gemstone is only using nostalgia to make money, with no effort put into getting new players, and only focusing on short term money making tactics, then the game will eventually crash and burn once they piss off enough of the players. Given how small the player base is, all it would take to tank the game would be for a few of the big spender whales to leave.

    God, the more I think about this the more it feels like Gemstone is a mobile game and not an MMO.

    It pretty much is, at this point. Multi-tiered subscriptions, multiple premium currencies, paid events, a cash shop... the only thing it doesn't have is an up-front box fee. Other mobile games wish they could run this kind of operation. I kind of laughed at the uproar over Metal Gear Survive when people found out you had to pay for a second save slot. GS players have been doing that for years, but it's a recurring monthly payment.
    You had better pay your guild dues before you forget. You are 113 months behind.

    Wyrom's post about the end of feeder-driven games was just after I was banned from Discord for posting memes about unregulated internet gambling. I submitted complaints to the Missouri Gaming Commission and the FTC. If you'd like to de-tangle slot machines from Gemstone, I suggest you do the same.

    I think it had less to do with whatever you think you did and more to do with the fact that they hand-made thousands of items which were 1) almost exhausted due to player demand and 2) caused lots of complaints due to perceived inferior quality (which most were, TBH).

    They were almost exhausted due to player demand because Simu's only been developing for whales for the past twenty years. Whales think they can drop $1k on a gambling event and come out ahead.

    Oh, I checked out your playershop and trade list. You're the kind of person that Simu develops for. Thanks for ruining Gemstone btw.
