- What About Korea?
I did not mention the controversy about the Korean FGO players being understandably upset about finding out that the summoning rates had been covertly changed in their version of the game. But I am mentioning it now because it seems that there has been a noticeable and tangible drop off in the player base to the point where the server was not going to be able to beat Solomon. Crazy.
