While I understand that your ability to achieve your intended effect with patches and maintenance leaves much to be desired, it is my hope that you will fulfill this next request. When next you attempt to fix the current character saving issue that is plaguing the game, I humbly request that your newest unforeseen glitch be to lock me out of my pets as well, until a later time where the hacking situation is dealt with.
This is not sarcasm. For over a week, I have been frustrated, knowing that my wine batches have turned to vinegar, that all of my part-time job counters are rapidly ticking down to 1 completion, and that no matter how many tickets I accumulate, I will never be able to send them to my friend's account that still needs them. I have been anxious to finish out the little jousting I need to get my explosive burn. Most importantly, I have been hoping to train my friend's archer sitting at 1/1 current before she turns 21, which I had hoped to coincide with this previous weekend's Double Rainbow, but alas, she too was locked out.
Now that my rage has come full circle, I have reached a state of enlightenment. Strong as my Mabi itch is, the lockout was the best thing that could have happened to me at this time. With the hacking situation at its worst, much of my desired items cannot be accessed. Since I could not log in for G15, when this lockout is finally fixed, I will likely not have an unusable homestead ticket sitting indefinitely in my limited inventory. I also have not had to suffer any items lost from this latest character save fiasco.
And so I await patiently, asking only that when you fix this current problem, you tack one on for me and my friends' accounts as well--the complete lockout of our pets. That way, by the time the lockout issue is fixed, with any luck these other issues will be gone as well, and that we will not have lost anything from the inevitable rollback you'll probably have to do to set right some of your other more pressing concerns. Please do not intentionally try to lock out my pets; in fact, I insist that you try as hard as you can not to. That way, their successful lockout will be ensured. I know you have a unique talent for hitting the bulls-eye on a dartboard only when facing away from it with the wind blowing at your back, and for this reason, I am confident you will not let me down.
I thank you for your time, and can now finally let go of my growing frustration as I patiently await a more satisfying resolution for all things Mabinogi.
