I never post anything in any forum at all, but the situation of this game from NEXON side and player side got me to do that. I'm actually amazed about the whole situation. Imagine you have your own restaurant in foreign country and you only allow to eat for those who you know only or only specific kind of people. And your restaurant is big, innovative, luxury and so on. You have plenty of resources to generate piles of money by serving unique kind of services but you just don't do that. More and more people getting disappointed and choosing other places where they would be allowed to do that and do EVEN MORE.
According to Steam charts, Vindictus has only 250-450 playerbase nowadays, when their highest peak of players was 3500 people. That's like 9 times more than it is right now. I was playing the game from 2013 beta, my friends also, they were investing to further game development, and they spread the news about this game to invite more and more players to this game. Unfortunately, none of them can't play right now. It's weird when so many countries are blocked from using services, because there are plenty of loyal, determined players worldwide who would raise NEXON to whole new level and would generate finances even more quicker what would be very efficient to players/community and whole corporation. It's never to late to revive the game, but it needs efforts, it's not that big issue, but solving it might have very big positive effects. It's NEXON's choice whether they want to revive the game, revive their finances, attract new players, bigger community, reach the whole next level or whether they want to let the game, loyal community, and whole corporation reach the extinction.
