This has triggered me. . .

 

Haha, my bad. The main point I was trying to get across with that was that we should focus on advertising this game to the English anime community. This game truly does have a lovely story and cast of characters. We should be advertising that aspect of the game more.

 

Waifu culture is hilariously awesome.

Piccolo hands down best waifu.

For those who haven't seen them, mobile Trickster has updated art for a lot of familiar faces.

It's no wonder why the Trickster brand is still alive and kicking in Japan.

Hmm...the game should really get translated to some of the languages that didn't get an official server. Main ones I'm thinking of are French, Spanish, and Portuguese.

Proper translations without relying too much on google translate. Would really help in growing the fanbase. Game's art style should be attracting anime fans from all over.

I completely forgot that Shrek was in this game. We need to advertise this more.

The best ways to showcase all these awesome characters is through cosplay and fan art.

 

An idea I had to promote this server and the game itself was to share the results of the annual selfie event with the anime community on sites like Crunchyroll and Reddit.

This is where I come in and say:

 

Ntreev USA shut down after merging with GameRage. GameRage then (slowly) removed all the games they got from the merge.

 

Ntreev KR seems to no longer be focal around gaming.

 

So as a whole, Ntreev is a dead company. Either way, Ntreev's western branches are all dead. Ntreev's western branch hasn't existed since GameRage took over Trickster/Grand Chase/etc.

That's assuming Ntreev cares about this game, which doesn't seem to be the case.

 

 

Ntreev wouldn't help out a private server in any way. Can't have a discord for a vastly multi-lingual player base like this either, it'd just be chaotic or dead

 

 

Meh, Ntreev definitely did care about it enough to keep the Trickster brand alive through a cute little mobile game.

Unfortunately, it's way more profitable for them to have a F2P mobile game than continue running a F2P MMO.

 

Have you seen those mobile games? People whale like crazy in them trying to get their waifus.

Trickster needs more waifus.

are the event rewards great? totally. but fact is the game model is outdated even 10 years ago.

 

if this is a new game release, well it wouldnt even make it past cbt. it's all about nostalgia. nothing wrong with that but the effects of advertising are extremely questionable.

 

most importantly, if advertising wasnt successful we run the risk of ntreev coming after the server. if advertising was successful then ntreev is definitely coming after the server.

 

just look at pokemon uranium, took almost a decade to build, taken down right after release because it got attention.

Ntreev doesn't need a western branch. They had an outside company named Stairs publish their mobile game in Japan. All they need to do is find a western company to publish their little mobile game over here. A company named Xseed has been publishing foreign games here in the States for a while now, they would be a nice choice.

 

Ntreev KR still does focus on gaming according to their website. Also says that they're still growing as a company.

The only reason why these private servers exist is because the official servers are offline. It would be a different story if the official servers were still online.

The point of advertising would be to show that there is a demand for the Trickster brand to make a come back in the west.

iirc Xseed is notorious about extremely bad localizations and also deliberately postponing the release of games, and that multiple gaming companies are ditching them for a different localization team for that very reason.

 

We're in an age where the smartest, best way to really get your stuff out there is to do it yourself. Just look at games like Grand Chase or Elsword.

After looking into it some more, Ntreev got acquired by NCsoft some time ago. It would be safe to assume that NCsoft West would be the ones to publish and localize anything that Ntreev makes.

 

A little fun fact, Ntreev is working on a Pangya mobile game. Game's release has been getting delayed to hell though.

 

It's a bit sad seeing Ntreev reduced to making mobile games. Hope they'll grow big enough to dabble in MMOs again. A Trickster Online revival would be great. The mobile game has introduced a lot of new characters into the world of Trickster. It's fun thinking about how they would all fit into Online's story.

I doubt that they got "reduced" -- if anything, it's clear they made a strategic transition to mobile games because it makes more profit. It's something they would have done eventually regardless of how well or poorly their servers were doing.

This is how you advertise a game.

Nintendo knows what's up.

 

And so does Pangya.

There is another problem with Trickster. Most people came back here because of nostalgia. I would not recommend new players to come and play the game because it's too confusing. You can't change your key bindings (using skills on F1-F2 keys? come on) and most of the wikis are dead so there is no place to check anything beside basic stuff (you can check few items, not all, quests, dungeons and monsters etc.)

 

But the most important thing is this - all the items in game have no preview. I don't know what will came out if I exchange, dunno, GM certificates. I don't know why people sell put-the-name-here Box and I don't know what is inside. What this game needs is advertising and some serious items guide so people like me who forgot most of the things and new players would actually know if some boxes are worth buying from other players or is it necessary to collect gm certificates or daily coupons or any other items. Veterans know this stuff, new players do not.

I think we should have an event in Trickster's Page (facebook) since social media has been a great influence to attract players: More players, more income.

 

Event Suggestion: (this event is what I usually see from games on their pages)

 

1. *Share, Like & comment your IGN & tag 5 of your friends* - GM will pick random players to receive the rewards

 

-ughhh I can only think of 1 event. lmao. so basically, active FB page.

Yo, mobile Trickster in Korea even had a Blade and Soul collaboration. Ntreev better find a good western publisher if not NC West.

Oh, and this is for the idiots who can't do simple research and say Ntreev doesn't care about their games. If you want to blame someone, blame the publishers like Gamerage and Gametree for not putting more effort in keeping the official servers alive. http://www.inven.co....=131189&sw=트릭스터
