You're going down a path I can't follow
Preamble: This small letter is not directed towards any of the members of the Vindictus NA/EU team, I know that you're just following orders from your bosses and have practically no say in what content will be released here.
I can't believe it's been ten years already, it almost feels like yesterday when I think back to how I tried to play your NA-only version with a crappy free proxy because for some reason they decided to release a EU version more than a year later. Back then I was utterly bored of all the free-to-play tab-target MMOs that flooded the market and was looking for a game with dynamic combat. And you were everything I ever wanted.
Of course you weren't perfect, but back then I could easily look past your flaws. You made me jump over my own shadow and join a guild for the very first time, despite my severe social anxiety and for the first time in a long time I haven't felt lonely on the internet anymore. Through you, I even met the man of my dreams that I'm going to marry in the near future.
I wonder when it all started to go downhill. If it was a specific point in the past, I can't remember it, but in the last couple of years I find myself playing you less and less. The content updates that used to excite me, leave me bored. The fun, interactive events were replaced by attendance and grinding events that barely award anything worthwile.
And now the fatigue points system got added and it's the last nail in the coffin.
This relationship just isn't working out anymore, so this letter will mark our breakup. I hope you will bring enjoyment to those that choose to continue playing you for as long as the higher-ups keep you alive. I have found a new family in a different game and I can assure you that I will be happy there.
Thank you for reading and I hope you have a nice day.
and 5 others.
