We’re hearing contradictory reports as to the success of the oft-maligned Hellgate: London. Well, we know it’s not doing so well over here, but grindfest-lovin’ Korea’s another matter.
Developers Flagship have chucked out a press release claiming it’s the most successful online launch in Korea in three years, rising to become the ninth most-played online game in the country. Which, in a country with a lot of popular online games, is a pretty big deal. Anti-fansite Flagshipped.com, however, links to a Korean site charting the game since launch, which reveals it slipped to 20th most-played online game within a month and a half of release. Then comment-folk at Flagshipped angrily claim the chart’s inaccurate. Oy gevalt. Anyone here still playing HGL, by the way?
