So DevCAT recently did a comic strip to create some comedy and did some "getting sucked into the game" scenario. I found it rather funny on some parts. It was entertaining. Here is a link to their page and here are my rough translations :) Not sure why they pointed it at americans though since this honestly even happens on our server too xD Makes no sense.

http://heroes.nexon.com/Ucc/Cartoon/cartoon_view?cno=3&pno=1

Hurk: What...what is this?
Hurk: A...Above?
Hurk's Mind: Obviously I had access to Lucid Adventure ... what? (referring to a mobile game)
Hurk: This is...me....?
Female Voice: How are you? The recall was successful!
(Hurk from this world)
Hurk: ?!
Hurk: What?....Are you....?! I came into the game....No!
Lynn: In what game....?! Nonsense! Are you dreaming?
Male Voice: Well, here's the game.
Hurk: What, what are you?
Kai: C....cat?
Strange Cat: This is the world of Mabinogi Heroes.
Everyone: ?!
Hurk: Eh....
Hurk: This is not....
-Enter Knife stage left-
Hurk: ....What?
Strange Cat: Be careful with that mouth.
Strange Cat: You've arrived.
Lynn: We...
Lynn: Are you in the game? Did you do this? Why me?
Strange Cat: Guardians and Heores no longer save the world.
Strange Cat: For whatever reason, they are destroying the world on the side of the Asmodians. (this is referring to the Lochlann and higher enemies. Sorcerers, etc.)
Strange Cat: Heroes who have the power fall by the sudden appearance of him....
Strange Cat: He trampled them....
Strange Cat: As a last resort, I put hope on you and I am far away from this world.
Strange Cat: I summoned the most powerful people.
Hurk: What is strong...!? I'm just a loser for anchovy..!
Hurk's Mind: Right... That's... It...
Hurk: That's it!
Strange Cat: I believe that if you play your game, then you will adapt well here.
-Cat spits up blood-
Hurk: HEY! CAT! WAIT!
Strange Cat: First... before my mind is clouded.
Strange Cat: I'll give you a quest.
Hurk: Qu..Quest?
-I received a quest on how to get home from the strange cat-
Strange Cat: You just arrived.. They'll soon catch up with me.
Hurk: WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO?
Hurk: THIS IS MY FIRST GAME!
Strange Cat: Call...me...Gobb...
-Strange Cat dies-
Hurk: HEY! CAT!

Hurk's Mind: It's...it's 0%?!
Hurk's Mind: Monsters?!
Hurk's Mind: Why so many?!
-Enter Arrow Stage Left-
Hurk: WHAT IS THIS!
Hurk: IT REALLY HURTS?!
Kai: First...
Kai: I think we should get out of here.

Hurk: KICK IT!!?!
Hurk: Good...!
Hurk: If you master this game anyway, can you go back?!
System: Experience increases by 300% with titles from this world.
Masked Man: What? The Last
Possessed Fiona: Is it the same?
Possessed Karok: No problem. Destiny is set. This world is ours!
-Meanwhile-
Strange Cat: Nyaaa~
Strange Cat: Was i not dead? Heroes do not die... oh, I'm not dead.
Strange Cat: Anyway, I'm going to give you a tip for the world for those americans who are inexperienced.
Strange Cat: It's on my head like before.
-Quest icon appears-
Strange Cat: ! means quest is available.
Strange Cat: ... means quest is in progress.
Strange Cat: ? means quest is ready to be completed.
Strange Cat: Every season the quest balloon is a different color.
Strange Cat: Yellow is Substory
Strange Cat: Season 1 is Red.
Strange Cat: Season 2 is Green.
Strange Cat: and Season 3 is Blue.
Strange Cat: Let's get rid of those monsters.
Strange Cat: Next I will tell you some tips about battle.
-as everyone else is being destroyed-

    So....what I get from this comic and those translations is that DerpCat thinks us American folk stupid.

    Please, correct me if I'm wrong.

    Vindictus PvP?! LOL! Except it's "real people" vs. Mercs who've been possessed by Cichol or something.

    Hey, Hurk is the main character and that's fine by me. Also, boobs.

    Not exactly. This explanation really applies in every MMO. It's because certain things are never explained here when updates actually hit. Normally you guys are told the major updates that everyone pretty much always know about but re never really told the small things. I myself even question why DevCAT said "Americans" in their comic since this issue even happens on our server. At the end of the day it's because no one really speaks of the "not so important" changes that are actually important. For example DevCAT NEVER mentioned changing Hurk's Teide skills AT ALL in the patch notes when it arrived in Test Server. Nor were they ever changed IN test server. This is basically an example of when Juicy info is given to the players but not the crucial information from how I see it. The way they wrote the comic was more of an introduction to New players more or less in the "Hey instead of rushing in like everyone else why not learn from what the game provides in information. Because trust me there are ALOT of players outside of America that do this too. I guess they wrote this as an attempt to let the American players (I am categorizing this to all players because it's not just America with this issue .- .) know "Hey we noticed certain changes haven't been getting noted like they should be so we will try better". I assume there was probably some uproar in the release of the weapon regarding those skill changes and gameplay progression that wasn't stated as well. I will dig further into this tonight when my friends are online. xD

    @Bladehawk Yeah I honestly liked how entertaining it was. Also I don't think Cichol was even involved. That looked more like Geren (Gallagher) who was doing the work.

    Lol yeah they usually do. This was more or less probably DevCAT saying they will do better in giving all patch note information since they didn't do so hot with Teide on Live Server when releasing patch notes.

    As always, thanks for sharing! The illustrations were the best part for me. I hope they actually give Nine-Fingers nine fingers, because in-game he has ten.

    That's not even FAIR.

    EVERY country thinks we're stupid because of that.

    Wait... is this comic supposed to be a passive aggressive response to the west's unimpressed thoughts of hurk's new weapon? It's not everyday that derpcat makes comics like these, otherwise it would be a comic meant to create more hype for teide.
