Has the game gone downhill? I would not agree with Todd's response at all. The basic idea is similar to wow but the play and feel of the game is a lot different. I Love Fiesta because it is unique but Kyusinx points out one of the shortcomings. Here are some other major problems: It is a pay to play setup where if you want to do well you have to drop real money or get someone else to drop it for you. Truthfully if they did no ban for the later part of that and if they added something similar to wow tokens this would not matter. There are a lot of bugs in Fiesta just like any other game and they do fix some of them (mostly ones used to exploit a boss fight) but they ignore a good many of them. I started my first account back in 2008 or 2009 and saw some bugs that seemed to be pretty big. I left the game and came back a few times and I am pretty sure those bugs are still there. There is no central trade hub that you can just drop your items in and leave to have sold within an x amount of time. The whole house shop does allow for selling/buying but it is kind of hard to use simply because you can't do it while playing the actual game and not everyone can go afk for long periods of time with the game running. If I remember right they did add a search feature into the game to help with buying but it was not the most user friendly and still requires afk selling. Again Fiesta online holds a spot in my heart but the game that showed so much promise never got past its major shortcomings so it is in the almost dead state you see now.
