** The [[https://www.dfoneople.com/news/events/997/A-Dream-of-Romantic-Adventures?page=1 Dream of Romantic Adventures]] event thoroughly confused everyone for being a DatingSim event that came right out of nowhere. It doesn't help that the event started nearly three months ''after'' Valentine's Day, making its existence make even less sense.

** DFO Global is currently the only version of Dungeon & Fighter where normal avatars are notably ''not'' tradeable, made all the more glaring that the mostly lampooned {{Nexon}} version of DFO ''had'' tradeable avatars. Players have speculated that this is to drive avatar sales - understandable, as DFO Global has the smallest population out of all the versions, making it harder to turn a profit - but it's still a sore point for many. Others have suggested that Neople would make more from generous players if they would just enable the permanently disabled "Gift..." button in the avatar shop. In any case, Neople made it clear what their stance on the matter was when they swiftly deleted [[https://www.reddit.com/r/DFO/comments/78mkcp/rip_tradeable_avatars_in_dfog_oct_24_2017oct_25/ a set of tradeable avatars]] that weren't supposed to be in the game.

[[AuthorsSavingThrow However, in early 2018, avatar packages started getting released with tradeable avatars, reversing this long-standing decision.]] [[WordOfGod MJ]] cited technical issues as to why only avatars released after a certain date are tradeable, but he hopes to convince the rest of the development team to make older avatars also tradeable.



** [[UnfortunateNames Demonic Penetrators]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The official title of [[https://www.dfoneople.com/news/updates/967/Overview the update]] that brought the remaining two Lancer subclasses to DFO Global. On the stream that announced it, [[CloudCuckoolander Danjun]] (who thought of the title name) attempted to justify the "Penetrators" part by saying that's what Lancers do with their lances. One Twitch chat member replied by saying that "nobody uses that word except in a sexual context", to which his fellow streamers Gerri and MJ agreed with wholeheartedly. To add insult to injury, the word "penetrator" was misspelled in the stream's title, which the chat kept poking fun at.[[/labelnote]]

** In Anton raid, the "4 leg" and "ck" (counter kill) strategies are this. Instead of doing phase 1 the normal way with a 20 man team, the process can be sped up immensely with only a 16 man team and enough gear. Since the objective of phase 1 is only to immobilize Anton, having 4 decked out teams whaling on Anton's legs can do the job. "ck"-ing the final boss of phase 2, Mateka, involves similar levels of SequenceBreaking and overpowered gear. Normally, players have to counter hit Mateka during the brief moments he lets down his shield to attack, and then use the floating orbs he drops to play a [[MatchThreeGame match-the-colors minigame]] with magic circles on the floor for a chance to do any real damage to him. However, with enough gear, one can just [[OneHitKO kill Mateka outright with a counter hit]] - hence "counter kill". These two strategies are so ingrained into every Anton raid that anything less is considered unacceptable for most raid leaders, fostering a sense of elitism where new, unlucky, or low-tier-preferring players are unwanted.

** Within Anton raid, the Durable Leg dungeon is arguably harder than the final dungeon, Black Volcano. The second room of Durable Leg contains a small group of zombies and four magic circles on the ground. Players need to kill the zombies such that their bodies land on the circles. This is the only way to get the miniboss wandering the room to become vulnerable, and if not done correctly in time, [[TotalPartyKill a meteor wipes out the entire party]]. It's very hard to recover from doing this gimmick correctly, even with the fact that the zombies revive themselves periodically - only a handful of classes can save a botched run by dragging dead zombies around with certain skills.

** In the Korean version, the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Beast Dungeon]] is this for being more of a hard gear check than even Luke raid. One player in particular, [[https://www.reddit.com/r/DFO/comments/7p97e6/kdnf_192018_first_server_update_beast_dungeon/dshemgw/ BJ Dangeun]], called out the lead designers of the game in a livestream after failing to do any significant damage with a team of four highly geared players, telling them to "actually try playing the game like the rest of us".

*** These days the equipment issue is settled by epic quests giving you equipment of that level at certain points in an area's quest line.



*** [[OverlyLongGag Others still]] believe that the complaints were unjustified, considering that events have been steadily giving out less and less useful items over the past year, and that the player base [[FailedASpotCheck should've seen a bad 2nd anniversary event coming]].

*** [[OverlyLongGag Others still]] believe that the complaints were unjustified, considering that events have been steadily giving out less and less useful items over the past year, and that the player base [[FailedASpotCheck should've seen a bad 2nd anniversary event coming]]. Some looking into revealed that the first anniversary event for DFOG was based on kDnF's 10th anniversary.



*** Most of the anger over this has faded, though might flare up depending on how the third anniversary goes.



** There was some rather nasty fallout from the 2017 winter holiday event bug being removed in part due to the backlash the buff got from how it via a bug caused an event dungeon boss to drop epic items far more often. This resulted in a few groups: one of the original complainers (who by having spent all their event dungeon invites couldn't take advantage of it), people who were upset at the ruined boost to epics (often derided by the first group) and people who were looking forward to the buff for other reasons (easier/faster leveling/item farming). Only time will tell if it fully settles.



** The Bloody Lane special dungeon in the Metro center area serves as this both plot and gameplay wise after the other dungeons as despite the name, it's merely some of the residents messing with a rail system.



** Late December 2017 had a short lived bug due to an event buff (for christmas eve/day) interacting with the Epic Road event in such a way that Turiel, one of the two bosses had a 99% epic drop rate. Cue everyone that could (i.e. having event invites still) running the dungeon in hopes of running into him more. This got backlashed from the more overly zealous players who used up all their invites before hand. It turns out that the staff found out about it but let it slip as a nice present, but ultimately decided to disable the event buff's 2nd occurrence on the 31st/1st, leading to some more base breaking.

* PlayTheGameSkipTheStory: As most [=MMOs=] would go, while the scenario dungeons are story driven and explore the depth of many characters (including the player depending on what you're playing as), people are more likely to engage in the scenario dungeons for the sake of leveling than learning the lore.

* [[Awesome/VideoGameLevels Awesome Levels]]: Final Pursuit. From a storyline perspective, the Kartels have mainly been on the offensive and pushing Ghent into a corner until the dungeon fighters came along. The dungeon is a DecisiveBattle to finally push the Kartel out of Ghent, and the dungeon does everything to make you feel like it is, with APCs (automated player characters) reinforcing you throughout the dungeon, the enemies showing fear for you (as opposed to what some said in the earlier dungeons), [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KlD1u-EDx_g this]] awesome piece of music playing throughout the dungeon up to the boss room, and a HumongousMecha as the boss.

He's gained a reputation for being the "wheelchair class" due to being rather trash at endgame, when most enemies resist Poison, the primary status effect that Brawlers inflict. Thanks to the Season 2 update, M. Brawler has been coming back from being "wheelchair-tier" as the result of massive re-balancing overhauls that have increased the class's endgame viability. It's now argued that he's the strongest M.Fighter class

* ThatOneLevel: Dendroid Hub is filled with tons of [[GoddamnedBats really annoying monsters]]. For one, the Dendroids themselves cannot be launched or grabbed, meaning fewer moves are effective on them. If that weren't bad enough, there are camouflaged versions of them that blend into the background doodads which like to attack without warning, knocking you over and granting them super armor. The problem with the attack is that it's supposed to bend in with the ground flowers and you trip one to activate it, but the collision can be way off and you'll get attacked even if you weren't touching a flower. If that weren't enough, there's also the Flare Worms, zombies whose only attack consists of granting themselves super armor, grabbing you, and gnawing on you for about 5 seconds, which cannot be escaped by mashing buttons or anything else, and can cause bleeding. To make this [[FromBadToWorse even worse]], this attack knocks you down when it finally finishes, which can be disorienting. Oh, and they like to travel in packs, so you can get stun locked into endless attacks. Finally, they leave a puddle of acid which slows you down and damages you when they die. The boss, Amphora, is mostly a pushover, save for when its HP gets low, where it will set itself on fire and start moving and attacking much faster, and do heavy damage to anyone that gets too close to attack it.
