< Community Members from the removed material state > that cryptic wants to push and pull people from group 1 and 3 to group 2, where the incentive to spend is there.
I agree with most parts in the video but i don't think the real issue with NW is pushing and the pulling. Every MMO has to make its previous gears obsolete so that players have something new to look forward to and NW is not an exception to it. However, what NW fails to do is that it puts a huge wall of grind before the players and once the players have achieved what they worked hard for, it's simply made obsolete in the next patch. This causes frustration and people prefer to opt out of a game which doesn't feel rewarding.
What exacerbates this is that there is no incentive to reach end game as the jump from group 2 to group 3 is outrageous and there is only TOMM to satisfy you. Yet again what cryptic failed was to balance the classes before they released TOMM and instead of being applicable to group 3, TOMM is applicable to 0.0001% of players now. I myself was in group 2 and jumped to group 3 and i can say that i am regretting my decision.
We understand it's a free to play game and it needs ways to earn and P2W is not a solution to this. Mod 16 is also not a solution to this and the game really messed up there.
What do you guys think is the main issue with the game right now? Do you think that group 2's are happy in this game?
