THIS IS IT, GUYS; the INEVITABLE!!!!
Click to see: Long Live The Chase
It’s official: Grand Chase servers will all be closed. Locked up. Trashed. Doomed forever. Our beloved game will now eternally sleep along with its mysteries, glory and fame [not the guild princess, okay?]. We’ve expected this, right? The moment they [I don’t know “them” but it’s them] decided to close “some” of the servers including Philippines, we’ve known that it won’t take long until the domino takes effect. And see? After all those happy __ (input the years you enjoyed GC here) years you’ve invested in this lovely game, they’d just go and kill our happiness and our precious characters too – not to mention that I NEVER enjoyed Veigas and Uno for my beloved Jin’s sake. This is really fun; utterly ridiculous.
Why is this happened? I mean, there’s no wrong in the game, the story, the characters (despite my guildmates and I avidly shipping “happy BL pairs” – never mind), THE ENTIRE ONLINE GAME ITSELF. It doesn’t deserve this kind of idiocy! Just imagine the hard days we endured to level them up – and how many are they? 20. Hear that? TWENTY! (minus 2 because Veigas and Uno didn’t make it in the Philippine shores, at least), almost didn’t eat properly because we just couldn’t leave the damn pc since we’re in a fierce PVP, purchased gorgeous gachas despite its luxurious price just to make our characters strong – and they’d just shut it down, thank the community for the support and THAT’S IT?! I’m not angry, dude. Just explaining things. But I just can’t believe that I’ve exerted effort, spent my bucks and even cut my classes when I was in college just to play Grand Chase and just look at its glory, beautifully fading before my eyes. This is really, really, a ridiculous thing to rant about.
But what can we do? Even the Korean server itself would bid us farewell, earlier than the other servers. There are reasons, I know. We all know that.
Seeing the people complain about it, it makes me wonder no more. It’s painful. The moment we saw the news that it’s gonna be the end of it, we’re all shocked. Hurt.
It’s just a game to anyone else. A fantasy built for PC. But didn’t we invested something on it out of reality? We made friends there; enemies, allies, even some couples met there. On my part, I found what I call a family in Grand Chase. My friendship with Rell started there. Our guild was born there. Asuna and I somewhat became a couple there. I met those fun people because of Grand Chase. I enjoyed playing online games again because of Grand Chase. Grand Chase told me that you perceive, you’ll succeed (in leveling Jin from Fighter up to being Rama in a short span of time, yes). Grand Chase has been a part of me since I joined this community of players that are now in agony because GC will no longer be there.
But at least we were able to experience one hell of a joyride, yes? Fighting monsters with a party or guildmates, roaming dungeons with the rookies who didn’t know the way around, settling scores with other guilds, sparring with the most talented players not only in our country but with the rest of the world, meeting the best people at what you consider, your best place — say, how could I rant now? I’ve been a player of GC and WILL ALWAYS PROUD as a Chaser. It’s still a part of me, of our guild, of everyone else who show great passion for this wonderful game.
Grand Chase will forever be Grand Chase. Long live the Chase!! (I almost said All Hail Grand Chase. But why not? :3)
Hashtag it, and share your love for this crazy MMORPG that we’ll miss forever!
