conference call:

  • Blade & Soul shows a stronger performance in NA/EU than expected. 2 mln players are reached. They expect a meaningful contribution to the 1Q 16 sales.
  • HoT performance is weaker than expected. The conversion from F2P/core game to HoT is weaker than expected. They look for the reason for this.
  • They want to close gaps HoT left in the eyes of the players.
  • In regard to Wildstar they look for ways to improve the efficiency of creating sales.
