  1. Yeah I heard about it.

    In a nutshell – Nexon NA percentage didn’t change much, but basically everyone else got GREAT shares and it was a successful month for Nexon as a whole.

    Nexon NA has to step up their game, you know, stop hacking, false banning, glitching (That Phantom ship glitch was brutal), and stuff. And port Cyphers or Kartrider, which I’m positive will grant great money.

    But their not. They’re RELEASING NAVY FIELD 2!!! -facedesk-

    • Not really. The only region which saw huge increases was China. Japan and ‘Europe and Others’ actually fell, while North America and Korea made slight advances even if only on a set currency basis.
