Question: are we sure SJ is the good guy?

 

What if SJ was the one who wanted more money and was dissatisfied with Marco and the deal with CHS? He called JW saying Cha is a bad guy and told him to come to Granada just to throw JW of his tracks and also get more money. Unfortunately he went missing on the train so his plans didn't bear fruit :lol:

 

Hehe..i watch a lot of csi and criminal minds. Sometimes the one looking nice and least expected is the culprit :D

@stroppyse their BTS seems providing more fluttering moments among JW and HJ. I love how the captions keep fueling the flames of romance between them. 

 

Oh @lduc aw.. aw.. that 'geurim' really pretty artistic!! Thanks.. I love when it got posted more and more :lol:

 

@dramaobsessed interesting inputs from you too. :D

Agreed! MotA has loopholes and some are too glaring to ignore.

 

Anyways, I dont find it believable that SJ is master nor do i believe that master knows what on earth is happening in the game or whoever leveled up. Huhu

 

The main issue i have with the game is i dont know which version is which. The development team is developing the game, supposedly from scratch with none of the original NPCs. But the scoreboard has Marco and Master and also JW, which means that this is also the original game. Games dont usually have cumulative scoreboards especially if its from different developers.

 

oh no, development team is building but superimposing them on the original game, they mentioned that they are not able to alter the original code and because of copyright/patent stuff, pretty sure they have to go about this way instead of launching their own game wtih the exact same theme

1. He belongs to SM Entertainment

2. He belongs to the highest money making idol group SM Entertainment has

 

Yes, pretty sure he isn't the bad guy :) PSH has more chances of being an evil woman :P

Instead, think about the "oppa" following PSH from granada to korea and as per preview again to granada

 

awesome that's spoiler BTS,

 

so it means SJ is actually at Marco's place and HB went there!

Basically, rehash of what we saw at the platform - he is there but HB can't see him

 

Maybe SJ has shielded himself from other players :)

 @stargazer187 you said In real life no woman would fall for a guy if he constantly shows rejection and ignores her. Trust me, it only happens in dramaland.

 

 

 

@stargazer187 Not true.

@dramaobsessed concur with your view

This drama is pretty entertaining and has a great idea to work with but man… the whole game development aspect is just impossible to take seriously. Personally I try very hard to ignore basically everything they show about game dev but I still find myself cringing and saying “That’s not how it’s done” more that I’d like to. :joy: I’ll rant/leave a bit of insight about the development aspect below.

 

  •  A game of such scale is impossible to reverse engineer and get a fully functional product. In this day and age we still don’t have means to perfectly reverse engineer such big games. Even when you do it with much smaller programs, what you get in the end is a lot of junk code that’s almost impossible to decipher. You still need to do a massive amount of work to get even a part of the code working. So I assume they either have the source code or some documentation to at least build on top of the product (still impossible for such a big game that uses never developed before technology).
  • The fact that two people (no matter how genius they are) have developed such a massive game in such a short time is c.r.a.z.y., absolutely ridiculous and not realistic. :lol: Please don’t think that’s how it is in the real world otherwise new massive games would be popping every two years and developers wouldn’t be working insane hours (a serious concern in the industry BTW).
  • About HJ being the shield for JW – I think it’s plausible. This game relies heavily on visual processing, where it adjusts according to the surroundings. So if we have Emma in game as a non-killable/essential healer NPC then HJ might be recognized as her by other NPCs/enemies (if we go with the theory that the game relies on visual recognition, processing and rendering). In some games when the players interact with essential NPCs they won’t get attacked. 
  • Another interesting thing is what will happen if and when HJ joins the game. There’s going to be 2 Emmas basically and that might cause a huge glitch in game. In games when you clone an NPC the behavior of the game becomes unpredictable, though that’s heavily dependent of how the game was written. For the game in the drama it could go however the writer wants it to go.
  • A few pages back someone asked why anyone would make a game where you have to kill your friends that play with you and why SJ would kill Marco. PVP (Player versus Player) is a huge aspect or RPG games. When you have progressed in game and basically finished all the quest lines then PVP becomes your main entertainment where you can compete with other players. Some stay specifically for PVP. SJ could’ve killed Marco unintentionally. Keep in mind, those two were the only developers and testers for the game. With NPCs it was easy to test the game but for PVP Marco and SJ were the only players, so they would’ve needed to test PVP combat between themselves. While testing Marco could’ve lost his marbles and SJ might’ve killed him, thinking that it would be simple in-game kill but Marco ended up dead for real. It seems like the game glitches when it comes to PVP combat. This is a huge concern and it’s strange that JW’s company hasn’t tested PVP combat before releasing it for random testers. From what I understood those weren’t the company’s employees but random gamers preselected to test the game. This fact is ridiculous yet again. For such a huge game it wouldn’t be on the market or released for user testing before extensive testing was done by testers themeselves.
  • The fact that game devs haven’t found zombie Cha glitch in game is partially JW’s fault. For them to fix the glitch they need to know that such a bug exists in the first place, then reproduce the problem, then analyze where could be the problem and lastly search-search-search the depths of code. If they don’t have the source code, they are doomed. Even if JW was afraid of appearing crazy to his employees, he could’ve simply told them that after PVP combat the game created an exact copy of the killed player and glitched. Seriously, a lot of drama could’ve been avoided if he told his team to investigate PVP  code. The devs would’ve formed an alliance with JW, saw zombie Cha and went to investigate what the heck is wrong with the code. They have such a big company and so many resources to look into that… But, if it’s not a bug in game than it’s simply magic, no other explanation…

Sorry for the long rant, but I had to write it down so that I can enjoy the rest of the drama in peace. :kiss_wink:

omg omg, my previous post was using my google account!!  After so many tries, I am back with my previous username. 

I am completely addicted to this drama. I went to sleep with watching back a few scenes. Rrrr.. Most of them our CEO with HJ scenes of course. 

 

I am glad I am not a gamers. My free times has been taken over by dramas. I'm waiting for any spoiler... Hee. 

I dont mind overlooking the logic, as long as the story resolved.

I always like to hear a male perspective of things thanks for sharing @wenchanteur 

I just wanted to add my own perspective concerning the male and female relationship dynamic concerning this statement @wenchanteur said Falling in love by the force of time and requests is for me a typically feminine behaviour.   and @stargazer187 you said In real life no woman would fall for a guy if he constantly shows rejection and ignores her. Trust me, it only happens in dramaland.

 

IMO and my experience there are actually many women who fall in love with guys who constantly show rejection and ignore them, usually these women have low self esteem they view this type of behavior from a man as a challenge and they try to continue to "pursue" the man in an effort to "win him over" This is because these women believe in earning a man's love instead of being loved unconditionally.

 

If the man finally gives in, they get their self worth from the fact that the man finally "gave in". There are also men who actually do play the game and use this weakness as a tactic they prey on the woman by pretending to ignore and reject women who are like that so that the woman falls even more and more deeply in love with him, but most of the time these type of men are narcissistic, abusive and toxic and use this pull and push method as a way to make the women feel like they need to compete and earn the love....In reality both these are unhealthy toxic behaviors that healthy men and healthy women do not posses but they do exist.

I don't know how to do these hidden contents, I'm sorry.

Haha. I thought maybe his fans would be happy if he's the villain. Its a much more significant role and a plot twist. Which fans might be happy about. Disclaimer: I'm aware of exo, but i'm not a fan, nor do i know all the members or songs :sweatingbullets:

This is so true!

 

Thanks @nateko for sharing your insights. Your explanation makes so much sense and its understable to a non-gamer like me (the only game i'm playing now is PoGo hahaha)

 

It is plausible that the game recognizes HJ as NPC emma hence she became an obstacle between JW and zombie cha. I've never thought of this before :D

 

And i agree that JW should have told his dev team to look into PvP instead of going incognito trying to level up in the game and fight alone. In some sense he is actually running away from his job. He took the easy road by using his position as CEO to put a halt on the release without concrete explanation, he could  have share what he found out in the game and allow his team to make an alliance with him to figure out the problem. He shared minimal feedback like the slight reaction delay of his gun (which i think he did to humble brag about his high game level :lol:) but disregarded the main problem.

Spoiler

Yeah, there are a lot of people who go after enigmatic and mysterious people. I personally don't like such people. It is so difficult and tiring to second guess another person.

In my opinion, such guys/girls with enigmatic persona or the mystery airs are afraid to show their real personality in front of others. They feel like they won't be appreciated if they show the real self and they also enjoy the attention they get by being elusive. It is possible that I am generalizing but most of the time such people are really twisted or richard simmons up inside. 

So guys and girls go for sensible and simple people but of course with some character depth.

 

Not directly related to MOA but in response to the topic. I am sorry that it is irrelevant to the topic of this thread.

@ned_lee oh my gamer friend...yes I tend to cheat in some of the games I play too..Pokemon Go is one then I got banned HAHAHA! no more Pokemon go now. :P 

But with this game Im sure if it releases people will find a way to hack it so they can cheat and level up quickly.... it seems very difficult and tiring to level up lol!

Sorry to cut short your post but I think I posed this question in my previous post on the PVP mode of the game.  I agree PVP mode can be just as fun - Eg. Street Fighter and other games which allows you to verse other players. So it is possible for SJ and Marco to just test this game and the PVP mode. Just tragically Marco was killed by SJ in the game which somehow killed him in real life too. If this did happen, Marco would be like a Zombie Cha and if thats the case SJ should be still playing the game as he would be constantly haunted by Marco. JW's I.T guys should also be able to see that SJ has logged in. This didnt happen as both Marco and SJ havent logged into the game for over a year. Thats why I dont think Marco turned out to be a zombie. 

The game is crazy dangerous thats why JW doesnt want it to be launched yet Park and Prof Cha feel otherwise. BTW were you able to tell what the goal of this game might be? Im still puzzled on that. Is it to be of the highest level? :crazy: I dont think it was mentioned right?

 

Anyway just sharing some beautiful gifs.

 

The moment JW saw Emma nawwww I think this made him miss HJ more thats why he went to see her. :wub:

and if looks could kill, this would do the trick. Obviously JW doesnt want the world to see Emma or HJ :lol: Jealous JW, now I wouldnt mind seeing that again :lol:

gif credit.  zsinz7

 

It's only Friday, we still have one more day to go to see him tenderly ask her, "Why do you trust me?"

ME: SQUEEEE "because your Hyun Bin, I mean Jin Woo"  :heart::wub:

The scene in Granada in that antique shop, it wasnt funny, but it 

made me laugh.

When HJ asked JW what he is doing, and he responded seriously

that he is practicing throwing the ninja stars. :D

I assume that the both ex wives would run away and yell that he is crazy.

But, not HJ, she just stood there speechless.

LOL, if Sec Seo didn't tell her his condition she would be shocked I guess. You know other funny thing is when JW tells the director hyung, I forgot his name,  that NPC cha appears, "there he is, over there"  with tired and nonchalant expression. LOL.

I'm pretty sure there should be a quest line and a story in place, otherwise, it's such a lousy and boring game. Level up as the main purpose is a no-no. :D  The drama hasn't addressed it yet but hopefully, soon enough we'll get to know more about the purpose of the game since SJ and JW's meeting should happen in the next few episodes. Hopefully, the writer will show SJ's motivation to make the game.

At that time jin woo was unaware of the mess behind this game. he only considered this like any other game and wanted to possess it before CHS.

 

I agree with your post in terms of what JW was doing, but I stand by my statement that JW was being a scrupulous businessman. Since HJ at the time had no idea what she was really selling, if JW had been evil, he could have gotten her to sign away the game rights for the cost of a decrepit hostel.

Somebody was saying that since the writer is a female her perspective from male pt of view is not really working. I think JW is a well-written character though on paper he seems like a jerk. It is his perspective, complexity and Hyun bin's acting/charm that is carrying the show.

 

I think it is the actor's job to bring a character to life, and depending on the actor, can infuse the character with those characteristics which haven't necessarily been put in the script. In this case, I think HB brings several nice elements to the character of JW, especially his charm and a deftness to conveying complexity. I don't think JW is that likable on paper, especially before we are given reveals that show that he's not just being a jerk for the sake of being a jerk. However, I think HB conveys nicely the sense that there is a lot going on, and we just have to wait for it. :)

Yes, I think it's cute/funny how the videographer plays up the romance and chemistry between the two. However, I should say that I think that is one of the jobs of the BTS videographers in general, to show the right spin to an OTP. In this case, JW and HJ are both attractive, popular, and single, so why not promote the RL chemistry as well, and possibly even push for a romance. If done well, a romantically linked OTP also promotes the drama.

For them to fix the glitch they need to know that such a bug exists in the first place, then reproduce the problem, then analyze where could be the problem and lastly search-search-search the depths of code.

 

JW's company knows that it exists. Because the head developer was following the game via JW's lens as he was playing and could see him, and because JW told him about it on different occasions. JW also told Park about it, but Park didn't believe him, thinking JW was hallucinating.

 

In terms of the rest of your post @nateko, it was a very well thought out, insightful posts of how this drama both incorporates and yet contradicts actual gaming. However, this is a drama, and so don't necessarily hew to any known limitations, and I do think the fantasy element to this drama is basically fantastical and magical, so who knows how things will actually happen. If you allow yourself to compare this drama world to actual real world gaming facilities and limitations, you'll soon drive yourself nuts, because I did that as well.  It's like watching a film or drama about time travel. If you actually allow yourself to think about it, the paradoxes will do you in. Instead, I recommend getting your favorite snack and just trying to enjoy the writer's imagination. Or at least, the attractive OTP. :D Anyway, hope you are able to enjoy the rest of the drama, despite any logic fails.

Is SJ out in the real world? Or is he stuck in the game. He was flickering when he was at laying at the train station just like zombie cha and JW couldnt even see him. If he's stuck in the game there is in no way he can develop a way to communicate with whoever that reaches level 90. Otherwise you are suggesting this was all predicted and created before SJ went missing, before Marco and CHS died and also before JW being involved in all of this.

 

Seems like he is stuck in the game, lying low. Most of his PC gear was taken to Korean when the family moved. He was probably trying different things to get out and comes across a new player leveling up. Also, since  he was injured after his fight on the train, some time might have passed to give him time to recover. I wont be surprised if he ended up in some remote church or village to recuperate for most of the year.

So far, the game is safe to play. Unless you have grudge and have a duel with real person. 

In that case, if J One still want to launch the game, they have to disable the duel function with real player. And please, let the map site used is remote, away from traffic. We dont want anybody to be rundown by a motorist, aren't we? 

It has been long since I've been counting days... Waiting patiently for next episode... Huuuu...
