Whatever happened to Eternal Magic?

    
7

We called it “the Candy Crush of MMOs” when we looked at it in depth, but how is Eternal Magic faring ever since its launch this past spring? Let’s catch up with this free-to-play fantasy title to see how its 2020 has progressed!

In May, Eternal Magic introduced the Level of Chaos instance with its own specialized currency. Steam collectables and an additional difficulty level for the Gemini Shrine dungeon came in June, followed by a summer event and a Russian localization.

A major update in early September brought in battle passes, more time slots, and a class store. Then in October, another beefy patch made some matchmaking changes to PvP battlefields while also giving all characters a new battle talent tab for those encounters. The last development of any significance was Eternal Magic’s Halloween event, which only ran for a week or so.

Have you given Eternal Magic a try this year? What were your thoughts? Let us know in the comments!

I think it’s customary at this point to mention how this game blatantly stole assets from both WoW and GW2 and how this is a huge red flag.

I personally would have enjoyed the game to some extent, if it wasn’t for:

– each time I open the bag or map to hear the same sounds from the same actions in WoW and be reminded that I’m not actually playing WoW
– each time I fight a Boar, Wolf or a Spider, to hear the same sounds from Boars, Wolves or Scorpids in WoW and and be reminded that I’m not actually playing WoW
– each time I go into the starting zone and hear a rehashed version of Westfall’s theme song and be reminded that I’m not actually playing WoW or in Westfall
– each time I’m in the capital city that looks like Stormwind City and has a rehashed theme song of Stormwind City and be reminded that I’m not actually playing WoW

My problem with this game is that they easily have created 99% of their assets, but for some unknown reason, they decided for the last 1% to blatantly steal from other games… Why? I honestly do not understand this. It’s so stupid and lazy and annoying and it really pisses me off and bums me out.

This feels like an ad.

If it is, you don’t call them ads anymore. It’s “sponsored content”. Advertising is content! Right?!

If they’re not getting paid for this, it’s unlikely an ad. Rather it’s just reporting what game is doing in a softball kind of way currently…because they don’t have anything salacious to report about it as of yet. So yes, it’s rather all fluffy for now. And I’m not sure that’s a bad thing. o.O

…I’m really not seeing an ad here. It’s just a factual list of updates for a game they rarely cover. The only opinion words in the article refer to the patches being large, which is pretty easy to justify with objective data. The last paragraph is just a discussion prompt so people will have something to talk about in the comments. I don’t see any indication they’re trying to shill for the game.

I haven’t tried this game and don’t plan to, as there doesn’t seem to be much about it that’s innovative or unique. It’s interesting to hear they’re still around and what they’re up to, though.

It was too short. Normally these articles are about more obscure relics.

A short article does not mean an ad though. As info commercials doesn’t mean it’s a dissertation either…
