Sword is a fun game. But it's also a fairly frustrating one. The grind from Vet to Expert is huge, probably even impossible to do actively without AFKing several hours a day. The amount of cash shop gouging is pretty bad, especially when it comes to the enchanting system. Lack of end game content, only a couple raids most clans can do and those you have to fight over.
And of course, one of the worst things, I think, part of the cash shop gouging, is the timed CS items. Rather than based on how much you are in game, they are based on real time. So people play far too much in order to get their money's worth.
All in all its a recipe for burn out.
It's bad enough when it happens to you, but it really sucks when it happens with your friends in the game. You never know if you'll see them again.
It's weird. In a lot of times you don't even know their real names. But you've spend a lot of time chatting with them. So I guess they are your friends. Not in the help get rid of a body sense, but still more than just someone you nod your head to.
