I'm surprised no one is really talking about this. Only a few mentions on the official discord and none on the forums that I can tell. For all the stuff people say about gameforge, including comparatively minor things, no one talks about this?
But based on the initially twitter preview, I thought GF just got lazy and used some footage from ZERO because they had none for the actual game... but I guess I gave them a bit too much credit.
All gameforge did was copy a unfaithful 3rd party mobile port and throw in their logo on it. That is just a new low. IDK if gameforge threatened legal actions in order to get the game or something... I also don't know if Lion game knows of this. I assume they should given they own SW, but I can't imagine any developer would approve of something like this.
Of all the things gameforge has done, this is the worst. There is no modification to ZERO, which don't have a functional combo chain system, the skills are all wrong, etc etc.
Its not even faithful to the source, yet gameforge thinks that game is presentable as an official SW port? What I think is worse is that they think it is ok to literally copy a copy and then labeling it as their own and marketing it as official. Vast majority of the SW community can tell this is just ZERO. The app icon haven't even changed.
This is just done in poor faith. It is hard to b disappointed when you have low expectations, but yea I'm disappointed. This game isn't official, its just a lazy and honestly quite disgusting. Gameforge should honestly just take the mobile game down now.
