<p><a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/img_openGraph.jpg" class=" no-style"><img class="alignnone size-hero-size wp-image-515822" src="https://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/img_openGraph-728x382.jpg" alt="" width="668" height="351" /></a></p> <p>Netmarble doesn't have the greatest reputation.
