* BrokenBase: On many, many ''many'' things. Pets, 16-bit sprites, using Reddit as a primary communication platform... the list goes on.
** Possibly the biggest one is dragging and leeching. A common tactic for poorly-equipped or low-level players when entering a dungeon is to sit in the entrance to the dungeon and wait for the better player to reach the boss room, where they teleport to the boss to try and get some of the loot. In response, some players will collect a large group of enemies and kite them on top of the leeching player, often in far too large groups for the leeching playerr to deal with. Whether either of these attitudes are justified is a common hot point among fans, so bring it up at your own risk.



** Pets, or at least high-level Heal/Magic Heal pets. Levelling the Heal ability to level 100 (The highest possible) results in the pet healing you for 90 HP... every 'second'. This means that many situations that would previously have been lethal are now cakewalks due to enemies simply being unable to kill you faster than your pets can heal them. Magic Heal is similar, if slightly less effective, healing you for only 45 MP per second, but this is still enough to let every single character spam their ability to no end.

** Most recently, they left the game completely untouched for six months. An MMO with no updates, little word from the devs, rife with hacking and cheating, a seasonal-themed Nexus that rapidly became outdated, and no word on if the game would continue to be worked on. Eventually, one of the GMs announced that the ''entire'' dev team had been pulled away from the very active MMO to work on mobile games and "would be working on the game in the future." Two months after that and the only activity is from that same GM, who is using recycled events to attempt to breathe some life into the rapidly-ailing game. Needless to say, [[CaptainObvious this has not endeared Kabam! to the game's fans.]]

** Free itens pls. [[note]] The stereotypical begging of a player who can't actually play the game and is likely to just get themselves killed with the items by running [[LeeroyJenkins headfirst into danger.]] If you use these words seriously, expect a lot of mocking from other players.]]

Added DiffLines:

* JunkRare: Some intentionally useless UT items, such as the ones from the Battle of the Nexus. No actual use, but look pretty cool.
** Similarly, some tiered reskin items such as the Belladonna's Garden reskins or the Haloween reskins. No difference from regular tiered weapons save what they look like. {{Averted}} by the Winter reskins, due to dropping continuously for over a year.

* AndTheFandomRejoiced: In the summer of 2016, Kabam! sold Realm of the Mad God to Deca Games. It's worth noting that Deca also contains some of the old Wild Shadow devs in it, ''and'' they are doing a month filled with events, with 2 free packs including dyes and ''rare pets''. [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Cue a majority of old players, with some who were unfairly banned being unbanned, such as Techmech, coming back to the game and enjoying it again.]] In addition, Deca is ''finally'' doing something about the Scammers and [[MesACrowd Multiboxers]] that had been ruining the game for some people. In summary, Deca buying the game basically revived the game, after it was hitting a all time low of players following all the things that Kabam! did, as mentioned in under TheScrappy.

* TheScrappy: Kabam!. They weren't too badly disliked after first acquiring the game from Wildshadow Studios, mostly because the game would likely have been shut down without that. Since then, aside from a few good moves such as the Haunted Cemetary and Davy Jones's Locker they have done very little to actually support the game; the Epic Dungeons are simply much harder versions of the three easiest dungeons in the game, The Shatters was [[OfficialFanSubmittedContent designed by one of the forum-goers]], the Lair of Draconis and the Ice Cave both took [[ScheduleSlip forever to]][[DevelopmentHell come out]], they frequently break promises made to the playerbase, do very little to fix glitches or shut down hacking, have very poor support (often not even reading the tickets they get sent), and made a number of [[BribingYourWayToVictory Pay-to-Win]] measures.

*** As a direct result of pets, sword classes (Particularly the Warrior and Knight) have become this. Their dangerously low range in exchange for incredible offensive ability previously made them a high-risk high-reward class, with their high defense only allowing them to spend a short time within effective sword range. With pets healing them and refilling their magic, this changed; Knights can now permanantly lock enemies in the Stunned status rendering them unable to fight back the second they close to melee range, made easier by the constant healing, and Warriors can permanantly buff themselves with the Armoured status by using the untiered Helm of the Juggernaut, skyrocketing their Defense to levels that, augmented by the high Heal power of pets, they can simply ignore every single shot that comes their way, even the 200+ damage ones.
