South Korean fans are criticizing mobile game Langrisser Mobile. They are saying that Korean users are being discriminated against.
In the South Korean official online café(naver cafe) of the Langrisser Mobile, a lot of users have posted a large number of criticizing articles. Overall, there have been many complaints about event duration, update rate, etc.
When Langrisser Mobile was launched in South Korea, operators of the online official cafe promised to provide the same user experience as other region. But now, users are claiming that this promise is not kept. On September 28th, operators announced that the event ‘Legend of Moon’ will be held for a week. But In Japan, the same event took place for three weeks. In Langrisser Mobile, the longer the duration of event, the more rewards the users receive. South Korean users who confirmed this fact said, “South Korean users are being discriminated against” Since then, operators of the online official cafe have announced that they will extend the duration of event. But users seem to be still angry.
Users are also pointing out that it is difficult for users to collect new characters. The South Korean version of Langrisser Mobile was released about 10 months later than the Chinese version. Therefore, the South Korean version is adding new contents faster than the Chinese version, which means the new characters are also coming fast. As a result, it is more difficult for South Korean users to collect the new characters.
“Langrisser Mobile was released in South Korea 10 months later than China. So they are adding the new features quickly. I understand that. But it seems like they are only focus on adding new characters, which is good thing for their revenue. And sometimes, they skip events that really help users. I believe this is a big problem”, One of user wrote.
As users continued to point out these various issues, additional announcements were posted in the official online café. The announcements said “We will give additional items to users. And the event was scheduled to be held in South Korean Thanksgiving Day, but we didn't announce this in advance. We sincerely apologize for this”.
Langrisser Mobile is a mobile game developed by Chinese game company ZlongGames and launched in China in August 2018. Since then, it has been launched in Taiwan and Japan, and it is launched in South Korea in June 2019.(ZlongGames and X.D. Global are collaborating on marketing Langrisser Mobile in South korea.)
