Slight changes in the schedule which now becomes 2 hours earlier than before... argh.. miss it on the first day and only know after the event had ended >.<

Besides experience event, there's also a double-bonus coins event! From 18-20 March, you will get double-bonus Acclaim coins of each packet you purchase. It is a great time for those who wish to buy ingame items and accessories.

Current 2Moons Review

2Moons has entered a new era recently following the big patch called Bad Moons Rising (BMR). Many of the players think that this is just a normal big patch with some new implementations such as new maps, skills, new dungeon, weapon, armor, mobs.... etc and fortification of new security system called autoban. Actually, there are much more changes other than above-mentioned physical visible changes. As the patch name stated, Bad Moons Rising -- indicating something bad occurences gonna happen in ingame community. After playing for quite some time in this BMR era, many players have noticed the real changes of the game.

First of all, ingame economy is getting worse than before BMR. The price of items, especially silver argates raised to a new tops with 5-6 mil lately from previously 1-2mil. This is mainly due to the changes implemented in the system of dungeon. Before BMR, dungeon gives good profits for those who successfully accomplish it. With one A dungeon, a team will get at least 3 argates. Things changed after BMR, where a team will get only 1 argates, and sometimes not even 1. Inflation in the game kills most of the interest of players to fortify their weapons, and thus make less fun for new players to enjoy the game. Simply they can't afford to buy those stuffs at the beginning except for those who are rich able to buy gold from outside sources.

Second, the drop rate of either items or vouchers became nerfed. I say 'Nerfed' because it's just terrible to describe the current ingame drop rates. It is so hard to find enough vouchers to join Dead Front nowadays, which is the main source of getting insane experience you'd have in high level. I heard from one of the players saying that it is neccessary to spend at least 3 hours to get 20 vouchers for one Dead Front, and if you are soloing, it takes forever... this really sucks, most of the players just have this attitude -forget about it till drop rate improves. Well, it's understable, imagine you spend 3 hours for the colllection of vouchers, and there's bug half way of Dead Front, all your effort will just in vain.

Third, hack and ingame bugs still an issue in this game. Although it is much lesser than before, but still some ppl take this advantages over other players. It's not too difficult to hack into the game folder of client side using hacking softwares, and it can be done just in few minutes for those who know well about the scripts. Botters are the major issue to new players. They take away available mobs and creates unbalance ingame atmosphere for newbies and thus causing them to leave the game eventually. Autoban is good I'd say, but some hack and exploits can still sneak over it easily undetectable.

Changes in mobs aggro and character's skill and damage area another big problem. Although new skills are released, but the mobs aggro and damage are increased as well.

Well, BMR is actually a latest patch delivered from GameHi Korea to Acclaim in order to create a totally new ingame atmosphere. In my opinion, most of the changes yet are not suitable for 2Moons as the game is still not as mature as the one in Korea. In Korea, most of the players in the game have reached level 130+ and changes in the latest patch is solely made for them, not for 2Moons community. It needs more time for these changes as most of the players in 2Moons are only between level 90-120, which make them difficult to adapt and survive following the changes. And all these unfavorable factors will make players leave the game sooner later.

Just simply my personal review about current 2Moons Online Games after viewing various opinions and suggestions in the game forum and private discussion sites. Some changes are needed in order to bring more players to the game and maintain interest for those who have been in the game for months.

Devotion time

Marriage Storms
Melanie Chitwood
"O taste and see that the Lord is good!" Psalm 34:8 (NAS).

Devotion:During my husband Scott's early piloting days, he rented a Cessna and flew me to Memphis to visit my sister. I was excited to fly in such a small plane and to have my very own husband as the pilot! While we were there, the weather took a turn for the worse and a winter storm was unexpectedly on its way. Scott was a novice pilot, and I could tell that the prospects of ice or snow were making him pretty scared. He called his flight instructor several times for advice--which made me quite nervous! That night neither of us slept well, as we worried about flight conditions the next day.

We woke up at 4 a.m. to go the airport. As Scott readied the plane, I noticed how worried he seemed, so I tried not to aggravate him with unnecessary questions, such as, Are we going to crash and die? I remember thinking that if something did happen in this winter storm, at least I'd be where I wanted to be--right next to my husband.

That's the way I want to feel during the "storms" in our marriage as well. I've witnessed time and time again that God can use the storms in our marriage to draw my husband and I closer together. At times, the most rewarding closeness between us has followed a relational "storm." God uses the trials in my marriage to bring my husband and I closer together and also closer to Him, both individually and as a couple.

I entered into marriage with my own ideas of how living happily-ever-after would go, and it didn't include storms. But I've found that sometimes happily-ever-after exists on the other side of some hardships. Tim es of brokenness in our marriage can be the very experiences that shape us and lead us to enjoy sweet fellowship with the Lord and with each other.

Dear Lord, We know that in our marriage we will face storms. Lord, I pray that the storms will draw us together, not divide us. I pray that in during any hardships, challenges, or stress that we face individually or as a couple, that we will come out the other side closer to one another and closer to You. Help us not to be anxious or fearful during a storm. Instead, let us stand firmly on Our Rock, with You, Lord, as our firm foundation. Let us have peace that passes human understanding, as we draw on Your supernatural strength. We know that You can bring good out of horrible situation. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Application Steps: Make a list of specific actions you can take to "taste" the goodness of God during a marriage storm. Be sure to apply one to today's storm or to remember them for future storms.Seek out a Christian counselor or a Christian couple to help you during the storm you're facing.

Reflections:During stressful times, do you and your husband stand strongly together, or do you tend to turn against one another?In one of the power verses, we're told to be thankful in all circumstances. How does this differ from being thankful for all circumstances?

Power Verses:
Matthew 19:26, "...Jesus said to them, 'With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.'" (NAS)
1 Thessalonians 5:18, "Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus" (NLT)
