so Arche Age is going to restore to basically a failed game? As far as them being shady that shouldn't be a huge surprise, do you not remember the server add-on people couldn't log into and they claimed it was a smooth launch.

Watch out for the most anticipated game in history, Diablo... For MOBILE!!! -ahem, ya... sure.
They really screwed that show up and then some.
I'd like to say "anyway" and move on, but first i will give Blizzard and EA a shared A-Bomb for their announcements of Diablo Immortal and C&C Rivals respectively. The sad part is that both of these games will probably make insane amounts of money (especially if compared to the development costs), so we might have to get used to everything coming to mobile.
Question of the week: Yes, Lost Ark will come to the West (and other regions). As for when that's a bit harder to answer, my guess is around Late 2020 - Early 2021. The better question IMO is if it will be relevant by the time it gets here. As you have all noticed alot of new ARPGs are on the horizon, and many will have come out (Diablo 4?) by that time. And if it takes even longer to get here then just as other Asian MMOs, it may end up feeling like "eh, what else is new".

If my english is even more off , the other times , that is because i'm very tired , got about 6 hours of sleep in the last 5 days , so yeah i'm sorry for my most definitely horrendous english
Da-bomb for the Warcraft 3 Reforged , i mean this was the game that i grow up with ,
finished it at least 200 times , as for multiplayer i'm still playing , from pvp to custom games ( I'm not good , i'm next to garbage,but i just can't let it go ) . god i just can't wait for it to get released.
I do have a little question , you at some point we are planning to go top X lists , what happened to that , is the idea on the bottom of the list or just discarded ?
QOTW:haha right that was a thing , yeah sure , it's probably going to get here to, in probably 5-6 years , i mean it took them 6 years to get the game in a playable state , but as things are going right now it's probably going to be a mobile release by the time it gets here.
