On the positive side, they do seem to be holding true to the "You can get it in game" philosophy, as you can get your horse via a quest line as well as via the cash shop.
On the negative side, I'm actually surprised more people are not up in arms about this one"* Spells resurrection now subjected to objective effect of Fear of Death in the absence of the effect of Patron. "
Suggesting that Fear of Death will now apply even if you are resurrected by a party member. This of course is less of a problem for them now with the reduced cost of perfumes (I honestly wish they had left them called incense, it sounds so much more appropriate /=) but for us it really just exacerbates an already tense issue.

2) Every class speed ability in the game was nerfed.
3) Perfumes were made even more powerful.
4) Several classes received significant nerfs.
5) FoD cannot be bypassed by resurrection.
All that on top of the CS debacle we currently have. Frankly the anger and cynicism towards GPotato is deserved at this point.
You seem to imply that that list of problems is GPotato's fault, when it isn't. That is the RUSSIAN patch, from Astrum Nival. ????
These are the kind of changes I was concerned would happen. The classic "nerf this so they'll buy this" bait and switch changes. And I agree, this has less to do with Gpotato and everything to do with how the game is being designed at this point as that is the russian patch. If this is the path the game is going to go down, its going to end up like every other f2p game and something that could have been great and shown the legitimacy of the f2p model for once is going to be crushed again by the greed of those in charge.
