Vesteria is announced as dead
Game started to receive a lot more updates and content, a bit fun for the while it lasted
Dunes, Guild halls, all that good stuff released
Fastforward to today
Lots of things happen in 1 day
Berezaa renames the main game to “You are dead”, and the F2P version to “You are also dead”. Pressing “escape” on both of these games teleports you to “Fight for life”, a Vesteria “minigame” where killing 10 people (level 11) gets you the PURGATORY badge, and killing 100 (level 101) gets you the ALIVE! badge, and a hoisted role in the Discord.
Seeming like harmless fun, the minigame was quickly made a center of hate for those who achieved ALIVE!, since the only way to do it was to be powerful early on, and spawnkill those who joined.
Later on, 3 hours later
Davidii departs from the team.
Sk3let0n takes a break from development as well.
Berezaa announces that the game’s condition is on thin ice, and the team will be restructuring
At this point, a lot of people think the game is dead/is going to die. Which is understandable when you look at it. Losing Davidii is a pretty big blow, considering all of the work he gave to the community while he held his position. Finishing up subclasses relatively quickly, guild halls, and speaking directly with the community for things like tester applications and bugs, as well as some complaints. Needless to say, Davidii was a pretty prominent figure in the community and it will be quite sad to see him depart.
At this rate, it seems the game will be doomed to fail after the community has had enough with the minigame to the point of death (and there’s no way to play the original game). However berezaa is most likely working on getting this situation off his feet. However, we’ll have to wait.
Back to the title, do you think Vesteria is going to die if this continues? What are the issues with the game you have?
my own 2 cents
personally in my opinion the game has been going downhill ever since the tons of reworks to already existing systems. the developers have only been reworking a ton of things (scrolls, enchants, the orb system overhaul, xp curve, mob spawns) no new content has really been coming out, just changing the game tons of times frequently. game got even more boring to grind and eventually people got bored, even some of the most dedicated players admit the game has become a bit of a clickfest
