Cosmic League EN will close soon. IMO it's because it's just a slower version of CB but what do you think keeps people playing this game for so long? I believe there should be some legit reason besides CS churning out moe bots to milk weebs.

KEEP people playing? Years of invested money and time, as well as the false sense of "I'M GOOD AT A VIDEO GAME" via the emptying of wallet.

YOU do I love you

NOT. This cheap server is dirt cheap to maintain. We are just getting the translated content of CBJP so the only money they have to spend in CBEN is a translator. In other words CBJP is keeping CBEN alive when CBJP fails so do we.

I don't know man. I put in a little over 400 bux and over 9000 hours and I abruptly uninstalled because it just isn't fun anymore.
People continue to play because CB is very unique and can be fun if you can tolerate the current state of the game. Maybe there are some who won't give up the game due to sunk time/money, but I doubt that's the case for everyone.

I like the game, the only really bad things imo are the
lag and the lack of balance...

Everyone reaches that point sooner or later. So yeah, the investment isn't the only factor, there has to be another hook, but I'm sure it is a common factor for most who have been around for the long haul. What it will do, however, is get people to come back after quitting/long hiatus, or at least, in the case of me and many others I'd imagine, fire it up on random occasion to just mess around with for a bit here and there. Despite the continuous power creep, the game is surprisingly easy to pick up and play even after long hiatus, and there are still fun to be had even when it is an uphill battle against power creep... well, with the right mindset and good understanding of the game, at least.

The other hook obviously varies between people: unique gameplay, animu, tits, friends, ease-of-play, personal garage.

What I'd love to know is what is the new player retention rate for this game and how do the Rt charge rate distribution look like between older whales and new players. I'd like to think that most current whales/dedicated players are people who were around when the game still had some glimmer of hope for improvement. When the game cemented its downfall around the time of Initium, it's already too late to leave, and these whales carried this zombie of a game to this day whilst only the dumbest and the most desperate weeb children would join the game and actually stick around.

haven't spend a single cent on this game, last offer I did was like in early 2012, and, considering this game has to support a team of devs in japan AND a bunch of gaijins...it's probably a yakuza money laundering front. Because not even all the advertisement fraud people here do or Vietnigger could afford to support at least a couple of dozen of japs.

Just heard someone back at FB mentioning that one of the hooks was the fact that you are capable to make YOUR in game OC/identity and YOU main it. Also there's a sense of achievement also when building. Dunno about you guys, since most of the time I read some build posting from you guys, I don't seem to feel that you're proud with the build achievement.

Yes, I have such achievment feel when I finish building something
and see it working, especially if it's something different from the usual...

I see no reward in building a bot that I don't enjoy seeing visually,

I only enjoy using cute things

I hardly ever feel like I did anything, build wise. Just like I spent a lot of time/money on a game that keeps disappointing me.

I don't know any game that doesn't allow you to leave an impression, except for stuff that doesn't feature much IG-communication, but if you play something like that, that should be a pro, not a contra.

Come to think of it: I didn't look for new games to play in ages. I'm too lazy to move out xD

Partially same. I neglected my anime watching and manga reading on this and almost neglected my "drawing" due to CB. Tho at least I managed to figure out stuff on how to deal with this. But well the neglecting of watching new anime, finding other games to (subconsciously boost ego) and reading manga is a blessing to me tbh.

Once up on a time, a guy told me CB is like an abusive ex girl friend you keep coming back to.

Last time I searched an MMO to play was around 2011 then stick with CB and another MMO.
2012-2016: Mobages and Handheld
Tried Overwatch because it looks similar to CB but uninstalled after 6 hours.
Maybe I'm a huge weeb?
