I'm starting to think all the updates that could be done for Elsword are going here. With this game, you get tons of unlockable characters, classes, constant (mostly cash shop...) updates and events... yet Chung still doesn't have his last class changes, and they only have 6 characters in Elsword.

Not that it's a bad thing. Elsword has that stamina system, and Grand Chase probably has a TON more support because of lacking stamina. That way people can EXP a characte whenever, for however long they want. If that's the case, imagine how much of a runaway success that Vindictus and Dungeon Fighter Online would be without stamina...

Not saying this is why, but still. Grand Chase is the Daddy of Elsword, and constantly gets more updates than Elsword. It's weird, to say the least.

If you like Elsword so much, why are you looking up GrandChase info?
Elsword is GrandChase, only a fairly obvious, cheap attempt at a money grab. It spawned abominations such as Dio, Ley and Zero in GC, characters inspired by Elsword. The same act postponed the creation of more skill trees and more character jobs. If you want to talk about a game taking away support from another game, talk about a cash grabbing attempt (Elsword) taking away support from a well structured, free to play, unlimited (no stamina cost) .. obviously Grand Chase.

Yes, I agree, a fair amount of the events are cash based events (new items etc), but they have to keep the servers online somehow, and GC hardly rely on underhanded "pay to play per match" tricks, like Elsword will. But then you also have to look at the sheer amount of cash freebies so many events give to players who actually attend the events. Heck, theres even a free Sealbreaker weekend on right now, giving like 2$ of stuff out to each player, and over a few thousand players. They are being fairly generous for those that dont pay.

As for your last point, it being "odd" that a game with a small playerbase (Elsword), is being out-patched by a long serving game with a large playerbase (Grandchase) is absurd. When an MMO stops getting updates, it dies.

Yes, I do have a bias against Elsword, but mainly because it is forcing a fair bit of the GC community to quit and move to Elsword, soley because work put into Elsword, is draining work put into Grandchase. Updates that many people want, Avatar cards, Weapon Changes, GC Chaos, 5th Jobs (lol, looooong time before that comes out, but hey, Elsword is wasting that time so its worth a mention), Second Job Skill Trees (also a long time, but again, Elswords fault), Character revamps that -DONT- suck (refer to arme and lire revamps). The list could go on, but Elsword is postponing me from writing it. :P
