Tree of Savior To Temporarily Stop New Players From Downloading The Game
When a new MMO launches, the developers typically do everything in their power to get new people into the game. Not Tree of Savior, though. Instead, IMC Games plans to temporarily restrict access to the game to existing players only while forbidding new players from downloading the game.
In a post on the game's official website, IMC says that it's asked Valve to "restrict newer players from downloading the game" via Steam as soon as possible due to multiple issues with server stability, client-side lag, and other problems. As of this writing, it's still available for download, but that could change at any time.
In its short life span, Tree of Savior has been plagued with multiple issues stemming from unusual policies, such as an initially announced three-month headstart for founders, ridiculously expensive haircuts, and a delay of the free-to-play implementation of the game. This latest drama almost seems to pale in comparison but the net sum of all these headaches has to be discouraging players, both existing ones and potentially new ones -- who soon won't even be able to try the game.
What's your take on Tree of Savior so far? If you're playing, has it been running well for you? And if you haven't yet, does all this ... stuff ... reduce your interest in trying it out?
