I'm hanging it up. After 40 hours, the progress is too damn slow (even with the membership) and the items are too damn expensive. Perfect storm of bad/dumb business model.
Why the hell don't they just have a package or membership that makes you feel like your buying something. A progressive membership where you have to wait 6 months to get up to the max benefit of 50% faster cert rate is just sleazy. By the way, this games progression is so damn slow, 50% increase in certs still makes it a deathly crawl of progression. The only thing I can think of is prices and progression model are the brain child of a Japanese business/market team. Because these prices seem to be made for the way people spend MMO money in Japanland.
