Why do YOU continue to play?

After the latest update has come a wave of complaints amongst players. I don't intend for this thread to become a nagative only aspect regarding the game, but I am interested to know what is the overriding thing that keeps you playing this game?

At the moment for me it is to see the end of season 7 through, and after that, I am struggling to think of any reason why I would continue.

    There does seem to be a negative vibe in general since the latest update, but it's good to get a sense of perspective. It is just a game, but it can take up quite a bit of our time (if we let it) and if the payoff or progress is perceived to be less than it was pre update, then that negativity can be warranted.

    @stoneheart my over riding thing is I like the game overall. I don't like the rules always changing but I like to play it. I also like my guild mates and that social aspect, its similar to my millenial's bonding with live chat on xbox. I don't play xbox, I was an eighties arcade game kid.

    Since it says "a capybara" I'm pretty sure it's correct (as in the name of the species, not the forum nickname).

    @capibara as always I'm late to the game. I glad that it wasn't a typo and I learned something today! Carry on, nothing to see here...

    I stopped with the video ads a while ago. Even the constant grind is preferable...

    For my guildmates however will move to our academy guild as this was last straw for me to push it to limits.......the continues tweaking of surv classes and gear and the bs they try to justify it by mostly lip service was enough to stop wasting my time and money with it

    I keep playing because I'm barely halfway through. I don't spend money to speed up the game, so I have a lot left to go. That said, once I get to a point where there's not sufficient content to hold my interest I'll stop playing. I don't intend to bemoan the fact that I finished the game and rage against NG for not providing new content. No snark intended, I just find this a really weird complaint around here. Games end. They do.

    Would that be Helsinki syndrome in this case?

    I play because I love the Walking Dead and love killing walkers. I've spent ALOT of money on this game and love the weapons pack plus the chess like strategy involved in the game itself. Also, I really like how they incorporate the content from the show into playable missions...love all the hero characters plus its easy to play verse sitting in front of my PS4 Pro, I can play in my room, the kitchen, out walking around...

    Something to do while waiting for someone to post a new word on Word Chums or one of the other word app things I'm spending more time playing these days.

    Thank's to NG for the in game adverts.

    I might start to branch out.

    Is Mobile Strike any good?

    Well...i'm serious now... :) Beside porn and previous absurds i play for my guild and i have fun with them. Guild is like family, we are in touch daily, we are sad when a mate decide to quit and we have fun togheter despite what's going on in guild ranks. I have a look to guild ranks one time x month.
    Guild game is the future of NML...but not sure if NG already realized that... :/

    I retired last month, but came back for a short stint to play the two new maps with my team. So, I guess I keep playing due to great teammates and new content(ish).

    I play it because I don't enjoy it. It's really fun

    Probably making a video!
