Oh golly oh gosh!

Hey kids! Do you remember Eternal Magic? If you said “isn’t that the game that was accused of ripping off assets from other games,” you’re right! And if you said “isn’t that the game that claimed it would have a whole beauty contest for female characters,” you are also right! But today we’re not talking about any of that and instead simply noting that the game has now officially arrived on Steam, allowing you to use Valve’s platform to bring all of that into your home! To pull directly from the page itself:

Eternal Magic is a new MMORPG set in the high fantasy universe where adventures await behind every corner! The game offers a spellbinding storyline, a variety of seasonal PvE events, ranked PvP, MOBA mode, player-owned private estate, a robust guilds system, as well as a deep social element… There’s never a dull moment in Terrasia!

Players who added the game to their wishlists well be granted a variety of presents by logging in and checking their in-game mail, with the presents available regardless of your character’s platform of creation. It’s worth noting that the game’s reviews are already into “Mixed” territory, although Steam reviews being what they are you can decide for yourself how much that’s worth.

This game looks like every other Pay to Win auto pathing game. It even has nice features like cosmetic skins in the cash shop that give you stats.

Thank you for covering the game and also reminding me of the key points since I couldn’t remember which one this was… Now that you’ve jogged my memory though, I know all I need to :-)
Still, if this is your thing, go enjoy.

Nothing like Steam to play the latest cashgrab trash.

I can never forget though…

“Last but not the least, a small bonus for the girls. Every shield maiden can download a photo and take part in the beauty contest. Other players will make gifts and give attention to their favorite ones. The statue of the most popular girl will be installed in the capital city.”

What’s this horrible taste in my mouth after reading that? Yikes.

Remember too – these are REAL LIFE pictures that they are having people upload for others to look at and judge like a piece of meat. And looking at the first review over on Steam, that is still something that’s in the game.

While I partly agee, why is this so controversial?

Asian games do nothing but portraying women like ***, bouncing breasts and butcheeks included. They’re all wearing skimpy armour and have cries and shouts which would put many a pornstar to shame. They even have child races you can dress up just the same.
Yet we all seem to just accept that. Your avatar being proof of that.

But not this. Because it’s real-life pictures? If a woman feels good about herself and doesn’t mind showing it, why should that be stigmatised? Real-life is no different. Beautiful women in clubs will show off, pretty girls in school will get more attention, beautiful woman at work get more help. Same way rich guys will get ‘better looking’ women, rich guys will get better seats, better ‘friends’, …

Is any of this ok? I don’t know, but it’s life as we know it and I’m not judging. Way I see it, you either fight all of the above, or you live and let live. You can’t cherry-pick what to accept and what not to.

I would guess people in general place a higher priority on “real people” than on how characters in the game are set up (and there’s a fair bit of upset about that too).

Personally, I would simply avoid the game due to the rewards tied to it, as supporting such a thing is something I would readily decline the opportunity to do. Even without any other implications of morality. Including if it was about something more relevant to me as a guy who isn’t going to stalker creepizoid stuff like that.

TBF im pretty sure the same system exist for guys as well. But yea its kinda creepy asf to just have some objectification system built it under the guide of “social features”

Went through all the MOP articles to refresh myself on this fiasco and learned the astroturfing for this game is real.

I like their unique eastern styled character models. So refreshing. I bet the gameplay is also amazing and with great depth.

The early 00s want their graphics back…

Jesus, this looks like an dated standard Chinese mmorpg.

Never thought it would come to steam. I wonder if you can play your older characters on steam or you have to start over.
