|Subject: 2 Years of Fun.... but now Sun Oct 12, 2014 11:47 am|| |
I've been here for 2 years, this game has just changed so much, it's not the game I recognise anymore, even the forum is so... dead.
I took so much time to draft and re-write this, and the heartbreak to write all this, you cannot imagine it. If it's what you are guessing, then yes, I'm officially quitting, but may not be quitting from the forum duties, I'll have to see what happens first. Since my new semester in the Polytechnic that I'm studying is going to start soon, I'll be concentrating more on real life now.
Why would I quit though? It's not just the hackings that made me decide this.
The main reason I'm quitting is because the first device that I'm using is currently unresponsive and I'm unable to turn on the device, possibly due to motherboard failure according to Samsung but my guess is just the fault of the processor chip. My parents have refused to repair it since it was too expensive, and my new phone is currently a Samsung Ace. With 2 GB of free space and I need to install some important apps before I install games, I cannot install Fantasica even though Fantasica just needs 700 MB+ of storage, and having more than 1 GB of space is apparently not enough. As I'm stuck with this phone for approximately more than a year, I'm unable to even login into Fanta to even chat with players that have posted on my wall.
The 2nd reason that I'm quitting is of course, you know very well, the hackings. Even though my 8* is already gone, I had faith that Fantasica would release another similar 8* but apparently Fantasica is not that generous and really awards spending rather than loyalty, not even hard work is considered. Between Worlds would probably be a tower event with an easy 8* and that may be the reason it was cancelled. Also, with the reprints of the rank and LE rewards for the Guild War event, I have completely lost faith. Fantasica has literally , I quote, from one of the comments in Fantasica's facebook page...
- Quote :
- This game has breached consumers trust
If I still have Vervandi and Ea Dragonsbane and didn't get hacked, I would still have quitted, because they are too less chances for free players to get 8*, the Step 7 ticket was just pure luck. Waiting for the pure luck is just too time costly for me. The two attempts on Step 7 tickets gave me all 4*, and that's what convinced me to absolutely quit, since spending won't give anything worth in return, and that's a given fact. Also, real life issues also clash because conscription is compulsory in Singapore as well, I will be going to the army soon before I even know it. I only stayed due to the socialisation aspect, but looking at Guild Wars and all the drama behind it and other stuff, the toxic is just too much for me and I do not wish to be part of the toxic. I know there are some people that are friendly but that's just not enough for me.
As for my album, I have already decided to not continue building up on it, not because I don't have the time, and the effort that I took, doesn't feel as great in the end, but that's on some other issues that I have on my mind. I know a lot of people trust me, however, albuming just makes me feel terrible for some reason, I feel cheated and guilty. Don't ask why. ;/ I'll take back what I said about albuming, I guess I just album whenever I feel like it, I love albuming ^^
When I first started in Fantasica, I was just some player trying to get the best cards I can get, which were just 3* and 4* because I thought 5* and 6* were impossible to get.
Life as a free player back then was extremely demoralising, even getting a 6* ally was even harder than ranking in a popularity event. I didn't set a target that is too high for me, at least a 5* unit, so I could be useful, however, the time needed to commit was too much, especially with the lack of freedom back then, only having 1-2 hours of play. I still made lots of friendly players not just in-game, but in the forums too and trying to learn some information from it, with more than 30-50 forum pages to read in each discussion of a particular event or on a certain aspect of the game, such as enhancing since there were no goddesses back then.
The only event I ranked for a 5* came when the panel event for Christmas was released, and my eyes were all set on Christmas Lieselotte. Despite grinding the whole of 7 days, I ended up 200 ranks behind, the special Pandora Box quests really screwed me up when they were released halfway throughout the event. I still managed to get the 5* Ivy, a BT reward from the event.
It wasn't just panel that I did, but Colosseum was fun back then. I didn't have time to grind a lot of pure from those events, but I still managed to get those. I didn't obtain that much pure compared to the ones that have a lot of time to commit on the game itself.
Something completely struck me when the year 2013 went by, Fantasica changed its iOS requirements to iOS version 4.3, and since I was still using an iPhone 3, I was literally DENIED from playing Fantasica. Turning to Bluestacks, I only logged in and remained active for a minute or so, with constant complaints to change my leader to something else. I had to tell everyone that I would come back after the O Levels, which was around November 2013, in the end, I only came back during the Christmas event in 2014, due to certain issues and part time jobs. A lot of people that I knew quitted around this time too...
(She was sold for Luna btw, when I was hacked)
That's when I started again with my Delfina and Morticia... the two 6* that I bought initially. It was so hard to get what I wanted... but at least it was easier to cope and that's the only thing that has changed.
There really isn't much milestones to talk about, since free players don't have really that much to celebrate on.
April 2nd 2014
When I woke up, I was just checking with the Fantasitrade chat and the forums and seeing what's up, when suddenly I drew Animus with the Dream Ticket out of nowhere. Even though I don't own this card anymore, Animus shall remain a place in my heart forever...
September 2nd 2014 (wait a minute, WHAT?! That date... lol)
Laws they established, life alloted, to the sons of men, destinies unpronounced.
Thanks to Ezrawin for allowing to have this opportunity to achieve my dream, I just wished it wasn't...
September 11th 2014
Thanks to Vandryx for this opportunity and HIS GODLY LUCK. (No kidding)
My heart can't take this anymore...
Left with 3 7*, Tamazusa, Soare and Kagura7 and a few 6*, I guess this is really the end of the road for me. There's really nothing else to enjoy anymore, and that's what I keep saying all the time.
If you still want to contact me, my usual kik @xKuroStar is always available and my LINE account is also available as well with staronyx as my ID. You can always chat with me at any time when I am free. You can invite me to play Super Smash Bros Brawl (the 3DS version) too , but I really suck at it.
Other than that, I will be moving on to Brave Frontier and School Idol Festival.
I might still be updating the Current Events and managing the Trading Center because LuziMiazawa and I are the only active moderators that are still playing. As for the forum guild , the DESU Guild, I will still be active in there.
My work on the beginner guide on Fantasica will be cancelled since I do not have the motivation to continue writing it.
Good luck to all of you and I wish you all the best

Well, all i can say is that i hope you have a good trip in the days ahead, with more happyness and less... treachery.
I'm also playing Brave Frontier, but since that game lacks communications between players (other than the isolated player notes), i'll wait till there some sort of comunications system placed there.
P.S.: You'll still read my diary a few times here and there, right?

Sincerely thanks for all the work you've done for this forum (and wiki?) and thus for this game. They are major reasons why I've been (continuing) playing this game and I think many players are with me on this one.
See this game as a mere stop in your life (as in a busstop): life goes on when the bus leaves again, taking you to the next unknown destination. I wish you all the luck with what your future holds.

Good luck! Best wishes! And may life be far far far more fruitful and wonderful (and as Vaati says, far less treacherous) than Fantasica has been! Thank you so much!

Your contribution to the forums and the community is overwhelming Kuro. It is sad to see you go but I totally understand your gripe with the situation. I hope you have fun with the other games you are going to venture into. You will be missed.

Even though I already told you in private my thoughts...
It's sad to see you go, because you've been with me for a long time and well yeah, we had our beefs and all that stuff, but that's long gone and etc. etc. etc. I really appreciate what you did for the forums, especially when I was mia most of the time due to health problems which caused me to be unable to sit in front of the notebook too long thus I wasn't able to manage the Forums.
I really am saddened that you go. I don't know why. It's always sad how veterans are leaving this game, because of the way Fantasica is going...
I wish you best luck though!

Any scammer IDs for me? Pass them over to me.

I have to agree that fanta is o longer nearly as fun as it used to be, im also stilllooking forr a better game.
If you find one can you tell us
The game i have been playing most now is DMT(devil maker tykyo) due to it's one of the few games you can turn a 1* into a 7* with a lot of work. and these made cards are actually better then the unique cards.

I totally understand your point why you are quitting, and its sad that things has come this way.
Fantasica is driven bye greedyness, i hear it to more often that lofts of people promised an ally of mine to get her a 8* or to help her get one, and than just blew it off.
Things like hackings/scamming shouldn´t happen..it drives away the good and nice people from this game and it makes me sad.
Wish you all best of Luck Kurostar.
