The First Descendant: payment delay of Caliber explained

Nexon’s third-person looter shooter, The First Descendant, is still in its rocky debut week. Despite early success and a growing player base, the game can’t help but grapple with several glaring issues. Among them is the delay in delivering microtransaction purchases to players, particularly regarding Caliber, a currency that allows Descendants to fast-track their in-game progress.

Nexon was quick to apologize and roll out compensation plans for affected players. And in the recent Dev Chat stream, lead designer Lee Beom-jun further explained the factors that contributed to said frustrating situation. According to the on-stream translation, he said:

“There are a lot of things I need to apologize for. First of all, there was a delay in the payment of Caliber from the first day. The number of purchases was so high that the server was overloaded, so it took a long time for us to process it. We should have prepared well in advance, but we’re very sorry that we couldn’t.”
