Wow. I shouldn't be surprised, but I am. I've known MMR was a dead game for a while now. After all, it's been a year since the last major update when the monthly battles, treasure house, training cheer day, and true martial arts hall were introduced. We've had a lot of unresolved glitches since then... like the missing image for eggplantern and the missing SS class. When I discovered that the S class battles didn't bother to follow the patterns of the other classes, I began to suspect that the update was a way for the creators to walk away while we had plenty of new stuff to keep us busy on a regular schedule.

I was surprised when I got to Class A-1 and found out that it was the highest rank. From what I recalled from playing Monster Rancher 2, there had been a Class S after Class A.

For example, all of the battles in Class A were named…Read more >
Is it bad that I am dreading the next event? I like that we get cool backgrounds, rare disks, and neat items and it is fun to work on something different with a little more competition. But it seems like we had events going on back-to-back for over 3 months. I had pretty much stopped working on my missions, except for collecting login tickets. Now that we've had a nice break from events, I have 2 monsters working on Goat Coast, and 1 monster working on reaching class A. So I have 2 mission completions in sight finally, but another event will halt the progress. At least for the Goat Coast mission. There is just no way to send monsters for 6 hours at a time and still expect to participate in an event. At least that's true for me, because I d…Read more >
