After 7-8 Years With Pwe, Here's A Rundown Of How They Work

I'd just like to sum up literally every reason as to why this is an awful idea. Some people might not know who PWE are, what they do etc. but I'll do my best to sum literally everything up as someone thats been with them for so long and invested so much into them. I may have missed a few things, so feel free to ask questions about things I may not have covered.

I've played Jade Dynasty, Perfect World International, Forsaken World and Battle of the Immortals for a good part of my life. I've invested well over a thousand dollars between all of them, most of which went to JD and PWI. I would imagine my total investments reach over $2000.

First off, the general idea of how their games run.

Do not expect much content, well, actually, they do decently when it comes to content, but let me put it this way... do not expect any early-mid game content. Every single one of their games is a money based end-game system. Don't expect to get anywhere at all without investing a hefty (and that's no exaggeration) amount of money into the respective game either.

They chock up the game with lotteries and whatnot, but that's not even the issue. With a general grasp of the in-game economy it's actually quite easy to make in-game currency. The problem? They give an incredibly high amount of bonuses to p2w players. VIP services and items that you won't get without paying insane amounts, and there's literally no way of acquiring these things without paying. Most exclusive or high end items are bound, permanently untradeable upon acquisition.

Warframe isn't PWE's usual open world system. They'll probably go about this a different way. You can expect things like Prime Access to skyrocket in price, and include many more items, all of which to be "exclusive" and only available to Prime Access investors. Nothing you can farm or trade for, only pay for.

The gameplay and PvP of Warframe.

PWE's games devolve into one thing and one thing only. Gear. I'm not sure if they'd make such drastic changes, but if they do, expect Warframe to devolve into everything being one shots. It's not about skill, it's not about how hard you work, it's about who pays the most. There's no competitive PvP in any of their games anymore. Expect to spawn and get 1 shot. Expect to spawn and get a few 1 shots. There's no such thing as equal footing, it's whoever has the best gear and can spam skills the fastest.

Grinding. Lots and lots of endless, tiresome grinding. Drop rates will plummet, exp rates will plummet. All of their games are an endless, boring grind. So much so they had to create a bot system for Jade Dynasty. A system that literally lets you afk, and your character will merrily slaughter mobs for you without you having to even be near your computer. It takes up to months to level in some of their games. Multiple levels? No, one level. By JD's endgame expect it to take upwards of 2-4 months for 1 level.

Extreme imbalance.

This game does alright for balance, sure, some frames are still pretty OP and others are still pretty crappy, but they make an effort to balance them out. Once PWE does something, it's pretty much permanent. One or two classes reign over everyone else by a huge margin, and they'll always be at the top of competition and PvE. There's no balance in their games. I still play JD every once in a while today, and you will only see some classes once in a blue moon because they're so incredibly weak even those that find them fun and interesting won't play them for fear of being dominated in every category.

PWE and their customers.

Do not expect anymore dev streams, answers or persuasions. You won't find any. There won't be any streams to fill you in or keep you happy, poof, gone. Do not expect any solid answers from support or reasoning as to why they may have done something. You will get literally nothing. You can't change their mind, even if every single person who has ever played a PWE game protested something they wouldn't listen, as exampled by their recent introduction of the Arc Client, an awful attempt at platforms like Steam or Origin that devours memory and bandwidth, slows down your game and constantly crashes.

Their games have an incredible amount of potential. Games like Jade Dynasty with great visuals for an MMO that's been around since 2008 and still looks great, with a huge world and tons of content is nothing more than a veterans playground. You won't find new players in it anymore, it's only those that have invested thousands into it and are well into endgame. It's devolved into daily routines, all of the content gets eaten up by endgame, PvP used to be amazing and it's practically nonexistent, and if you don't cash shop you might as well not exist in it.

Warframe has a ton of potential, and that will all disappear if handed over.

Edit: Oh right, and you expect the game to become Asian themed.

Edit 2: Forgot to write up about a huge part.... grinding

One thing's for sure, they're better than Nexon at least. For the most part, at least PWE's games aren't under unscheduled maintenance 24/7. You can actually play them <_< RIP Vindictus, so much potential wasted.

yet you gave these scumbags two thousand dollars and eight years

 

good work

Don't get me wrong, I did it because I genuinely loved their games. I had no quarrel with them at the time, but Warframe is different and I'd rather not see it follow that path.
