I'm so happy, because I would've been so sad if my childhood game closed. Honestly, I'm also surprised how they managed to do that, but I'm glad

Wait and see if their "arrangement" also includes updates, otherwise the whole "Developers" notion is just basically saying "We got guys that are so dumb that they can't even maintain one job, but we'll call them developers to seed hope in people."

Agreed with Metatron. The current state of the game is pretty bad to me: dupes, economical unbalance, lack of massive updates etc. The most easy and efficient way to fix this would be to basically reset the game to 0 but I don't think they'll ever do it considering the people who paid money would most probably leave/ disagree with it and that wouldn't bring the company any profit (which is SO SO important for IGG). Or at least give it a proper cleaning of hackers/ dupers. At the moment the only thing to be happy about is that for many this "childhood" game is not closing which is still understable and a good thing. I still do not see it survive in the long future though without some major changes/ updates.

Yes this I agree with. I believe that if nothing changes then why would people stick around. Right now there is a HOPE that there might be new things implemented but will there?
I wish they put as much love into the english version as they do in the chinese wlo. People honestly love wlo and this has being proven time and time again.
How many people freaked out when they thought this was the end of the game?

When the game does eventually close (because all things have a lifespan), I will probably miss it in a childhood sense of I spent so much time here and met so many amazing people.

Also in regrads to the people who have hacked and duped it amazes me that they just seem to think that duping was their right. Like some of the attitudes of some of the players are like Well everyone else was doing it. Or who doesnt like free stuff? Or if they made it so easy to dupe why SHOULDNT I do it?

I have never duped. I am sure I have bought duped items (because how can you honestly tell?) but I have no desire to cheat the game. And you know its so much better when u obtain things legally. For me personally it just feels justified like all that hard work paid off =)

Just like Metatron said, 'to continue operating the game' and 'we will be able to continue hosting this game' might probably refer to the game going on just like before, half-dying, without any further updates

Well, I also asked IGG suppor because I was curious as Nami.

,,Thanks for your support, so we decide keep this game, and we will try our best to improve the game to make the game more and more enjoyable. Thanks again.

Have a nice day. Enjoy it.]

Sincerely,
IGG Customer Support

This was the answer. I hope that they will do something. I really hope.

Well I just feel like something really has to change. The way the game is now it is better to just end it if it is gonna stay that way. Updates will definitely help and there is still a ton of content that chinese wlo has that we do not. So I still have hope for this game. Also the more we contact them the better the chances of them updating it.

Yea, the game desperately needs an update. At the stage the game is in right now, I wouldn't be surprised if they had another server merge. A problem that plagues many online games is the economical balance as stated above but its hard to deal with that. I recently come back to try and offset the high price of materials in Aries but I feel that it isn't enough.

Prices have always been crazy in Aries I don't think there's anything you can really do about it. And about the update I have a feeling they will give us some news soon.

I made a topic on the official forums speaking about this, and I guess I'll mention it here as well.
I think a good solution would be IGG making us a new server. So who ever wants to play clean can.
Of-course alongside updating our game to match the Chinese version, with various types of event. Not only IMP ones.

On the topic of WL economy, it's very inflated and uninviting towards new players, especially those who have only recently found the game and somehow figured that it might be a great game, for some reason.

The economy is so bad because there are barely any gold sinks. Minus the few people who manufacture and buy certain ores, etc. in NPC stores or those who compound. Gold gets brought into the system and gets rarely taken out, even then most people who compound use VIP tickets to purchase the Hawaii materials at half the price per stack to save their gold, because often they gain less from their compound than they wanted due to the book costs alone, which is why everything is so expensive, other than some people being just greedy.

If WL had more gold sinks - shops like the Carnie store, where you can exchange tickets for items, that allow you to exchange gold for either equipment, items or whatever, the economy would most likely be more stable, however WL also has the case of gold bots, so the gold is very flooded.
Gold sinks are very efficient in MMO's, however US Wonderland servers wouldn't be able to implement such a thing, because that would have to come from a CHWL update and I highly doubt they even have such a thing, though I may be wrong as I have never played it.

As for those who still don't understand what a gold sink is after that novel up there, here's an example.
- Books being sold and having a set price in said "gold sink" store, this way they cannot be inflated.
This would affect the pricing of equipment's, because it'd mean they'd be cheaper to make thus the prices wouldn't be as high and if someone was selling something for, let's say 10x what it actually may be worth + ~30% profit, there will always be someone who will be able to offer said item for cheaper, unless the 10x price has become a set price in the market due to high demand and low supply. A friendlier market would mean a higher possibility of new players picking up alchemy if it interests them and being able to help the high demand and low supply issue that often is a problem in games as old as Wonderland.

tl;dr:
WL economy cannot be saved unless they wipe everyone's gold and figure out how to stop the gold bots.

Glad to see the game will still be going. I played about a decade ago on Leo, and loved it. Having came back, it's sad to see what has happened. It has indeed come to be nearly dead. It is a fun game to play, and does need a makeover. Here's to hoping for some new content (perhaps another way to boost stats, i.e. alternative attributes to give more fine tuning towards a fighting style)!

I am quite upset about the economy, as it does seem to be quite out of hand. I myself will definitely undersell several things.

Hackers will always be an issue, no matter what game. I don't know exactly how serious it is in wlo right now, but I have seen mention of it. I can handle exploitation of things. I consider duping alright since that's on the people who run the game and not some third party program. However, I do view that exploiting things, which may technically be legit, not really that legit (raise your hand if you are guilty of bursting. *raises hand*).

On a side note, LFG.
