played this 7-8 years ago and amazed its still going strong. Probably one of the first pay-to-win titles to ever come out and paved the way for several others asian MMO makers to follow ( PWE especially).

This game has grossed close to a billion dollars from a title that might have taken 2 million to develop.

However I cannot see this translating well to the iPad and it suprizes me they would make this move. Seems like they are doing it to be the first free-to-play mobile title but really the graffics are so dated im sure it could be run on a cell phone.

@Juicer Pay2Win is very much the mantra of most iPod/iPad free apps. Pocket Legends/Star Legends are the exception rather then the rule. It's like FB gaming to an extreme.

with the exception that this game has been making money on PC for nearly a decade long before Facebook and even the iPad/ iPod. Im pretty sure Tian Quin is the originator of pay to win gaming. It was also one of the first free-to-play games ever released with the exception of Guild Wars ( which survived of box sales and expansion)

Wha?

Does Star Trek Online know about this usage of their canon race?
