not even going to mention the lag.
-Beginner channel. No one new is going to actually get into the game if they have no one to play with. All it does is put a bad impression on the new players and force existing players to farm games to level up in order to play in the regular channel. Idiots.
-Balancing. How is it that trash players are able to carry games? You see the same cancer in each game you play, it takes all the skill factor and fun out of the game. It boggles my mind the changes that have been made to the weapons, its like they're actually trying to kill their game. Good luck trying to play chaser mode with rail gun, TD with iron boots, and DM with heal. Idiots.
-Pay to win. I understand that its to make money, but doing so, also killed the game. If no pay to win aspect was in the game, and the game was still as popular as it was in the past, this game could've been a major eSport such as CSGO. They could've made money and kept the game alive by just selling cosmetics and account stuff, nothing that actually changes gameplay, such as Fortnite, CSGO, and Overwatch. Idiots.
-Events. These ingame forum events make no sense, all that it does is encourage players to farm for the rewards. The actual ingame holiday events also encourage farming and even worse, team stacks. Idiots.
-Split playerbase. You got like 4/5 of the population into playing only swords, then the other 1/5 of the playerbase that play guns. I guess thats the community's fault.
-No competitiveness. This game is a competitive game, but people only play casually. There needs to be a matchmaking system or a good clan war system. The clan war channel at the moment is trash, no one is ever in it, and when you actually try to have a clan war match, it rarely works.
-No incentive. Daily missions get stale, you reroll until you get something that you can do, then do it and get off. Bring back the weekly missions and have someone who is competent and knows the game come up with these. Leveling up is also stale, you have some decent rewards on the in between, but most of the rewards are utterly garbage. It encourages players to farm or use hacks to level up in order to get the boosters. Idiots.
-Coupon shop. What. Bring back the old coupon shop. Idiots.
-Magazine esper chips. Utterly retarded. Needs to be scaled based on the magazine capacity of the weapon, having 3 extra shots in your revolver is a lot more better than 3 extra shots in your assault rifle. No possible way to acquire these chips other than a GM paytowish, bring it back in the arcade caps to give players incentive to play arcade, believe it or not, I actually enjoy playing arcade. Idiots.
-Developers. Quite literally, with each patch that comes out, it makes the game worse. This should not be the case, and should be the opposite. As the game keeps on dying, the developers are getting more desperate for money, so they release these patches that kill the game even more but do generate revenue in the short term. This is known as a positive feedback loop. Its a cycle that keeps on getting worse and worse. Idiots.
There are many more flaws to this game, but I think these are the primary ones. It pains me to see S4 League in such a sorry state, this game could've been so much more. I know that these problems probably aren't going to get fixed, but wanted to address them anyway. If the game keeps going at the rate as it is going now, it is inevitably going to die. Take notes from the shutdown of the Korean and Latino servers, dont be like them, changes have to be made. I'm going to end this with one last statement. Idiots.
