Hello, Square-Enix. Let me start by saying I have played Final Fantasy games for roughly 20 years, watching my older brother play FFVI shortly before VII was first released. The series has consumed more of my time than any other video games, period. Recently I've begun playing several mobile games with the "Final Fantasy" title - first was Record Keeper, then Brave Exvius, and finally Mobius.

Brave Exvius has caught my attention the most, though Record Keeper was also a fun experience. However, your licensee - Gumi - has taken severe strides to deceive the games users and community.

First, there are the crudely overpriced and unnecessary bundles targeted at new and/or ignorant players. Currently, amidst the outrage of how poor the game's new summon banners are (more on that below), the "Gold Chest of Magi" was re-introduced. This is a USD$12.00 bundle of four items that are easily obtainable in-game by simply playing through the storyline and exploring the areas. It's design can only be considered "wool over the eyes" of new and unknowing players looking for an early leg up, and otherwise ignorant to the items inherent - and free - inclusion. I believe this bundle was available once before.

https://www.reddit.com/r/FFBraveExvius/comments/4yk5nj/while_everyone_is_distracted_by_the_banner_gumi/ (Here is this bundle's feedback from Reddit.)

Second, the summoning system for new units has become laughable, at best, in Brave Exvius. "Major drop rate boosts" can be translated as "+1%" at best. Currently, Zidane's likeness is being "boosted" and the facts simply show that this is hardly true. Players are drawing 50, 60, 80, 100, 200(!) times and leaving without Zidane, while he is being touted as a "Major drop rate boost." It has become such a joke that even the "whales" (people who gladly are pay-to-win, and will drop large amounts of cash on games such as Brave Exvius) are done opening their wallets. https://www.reddit.com/r/FFBraveExvius/comments/4yj28c/warning_its_not_a_very_good_idea_to_try_and_pull/ (Here is the current discussion regarding this "Zidane and FFIX" banner, and its results.)

Gumi, the licensed developer, was also in control of two games called Brave Frontier and Chain Chronicles. https://www.reddit.com/r/FFBraveExvius/comments/4yk41o/advice_from_an_ex_brave_frontier_player/ (Here, again from Reddit, is a former player of both game's thoughts on what he sees in Brave Exvius in comparison to those.) The alarming fact of the matter is Gumi has a proven history of not only lying to its games' players, but also insulting said players, silently rewriting away their fault, failing to listen to what their games need, and for all intents and purposes milking each title until the farm was so dry that the games were left in shambles. Even more alarming is their rather obvious intention to take YOUR most famous name, Final Fantasy, and turn a prestigious franchise into a cash cow. This type of game appeals to veterans of the series, people that have played Final Fantasy for years if not decades, and love the characters the met and traveled with along the way. That type of gamer, the Final Fantasy series's core, is who is being targeted by Gumi.

I do not know your level of insight into your licensed titles, nor would anyone from your mobile games' playerbases. There is, however, a great fear in watching a Final Fantasy title be ignorantly abused and trampled upon by a greedy developer, and at such a time as to coincide with the remake of FFVII and release of FFXV.

I believe, as do others, that it would behoove you, Square-Enix, to take an extremely close look at your licensed mobile games' developers, assuredly in the "Global" (anywhere but Japan) market. Do not allow such petty business practices to ruin an everlasting name. Please.
