It was earlier this month when Bless Online unveiled its plan to compensate players for extended downtime and unexpected maintenance. Now the game gets to put that compensation to the test for unexpected maintenance from its most recent patch. Of course, that maintenance came along with a shiny 18-hour rollback of progress for most of September 20th, which has resulted in players crying foul already.
Players are upset in the comments because while compensation is being offered, it’s compensation in the form of rather trivial quantities, which doesn’t ease the sting of having a day’s progress taken away… especially when there is no stated cause for the maintenance. So while the compensation is strictly better than no compensation, it doesn’t appear to be mollifying the playerbase.
Now would be a good time to suggest that you take a look at our recent interview with the development team about the long-term plans for the game in terms of development, or perhaps just a sobering reminder that the title’s last Korean servers will be shutting down soon.
