    We've been asking for a team that respects their playerbase for months, honestly doubt it'll ever come at this point.

  2. Montblank added a post in a topic Daum needs to acknowledge the MAJOR issues with their servers   

    What needs to be done is the community coming to grips with the fact our current staff team is awful and withholding funds from them until they either learn to step up for find people who can, but this is about as likely to happen as the request above. It doesn't matter how many solutions we offer on a problem or how loud our request are when the people they fall upon have no will to act.

  3. Montblank added a post in a topic I want to get into BDO but first I want to know something about its future and how things are doing.   

    If we are being very optimistic EU has around maybe 100k active users at the moment, it isn't an impressive number, but it isn't the worst either from what I'm aware of for mmos. 
    As for how well this game can maintain, while BDO seems to have a pretty poor player retention rate, as you noted mmo's don't need a very large player base to keep itself up and running for years so while numbers are doubtful to be extremely high BDO is unique enough a game that it'll have enough customers to last a few years. 
    BDO isn't a game that will die, but it is unlikely as well to be one that will flourish. 
    Edit : The lack of interaction between staff and the community could also cause issues if competitors arrive, there is close to no real loyalty in this game, this is probably one of the first games I've played where most people go into it expecting it to be a filler until something better comes along

    Of course they will fix, they just need several months to work up the energy to tell pa it's a problem.

    balance in this game has never been great, especially in regards to ranged classes (4/4 for top tier), even the devs have acknowledged it, we can only hope one day in the near enough future it can get improved.

    i don't think i said anywhere it wasn't, just seemed limited to assume only arena players are interested in skillful combat.

    But what about the safe space for pk crowd? They need a way to keep people below them without any real challenges, otherwise their fragile egos might shatter.

  10. Montblank added a post in a topic Striker extended trailer   

    The argument is that by spending less time on making both gender options for one class they are allowed more time to for new classes, and that the benefits of a more diverse playstyle roster would out weigh that of gender preference. Unfortunately a task like that isn't as simple as it seems, and most games wind up along the path of putting rather specific barriers around what styles of play go to what gender, which is in direction opposition to this whole concept of more playstyles for everyone that prompted the development style in the first place, and is ultimately what causes most of its opposition.

    One would hope, but then as I said, Kakao is always looking to lower the bar i.e not being able to scrap together a 1 minute response just to let people know they are aware of their concerns.

    Well that's quaint, release it in some arbitrary area not many check with no notification of whether or not they won, Kakao is always finding new and interesting ways to lower my expectations. 
    Thanks for pointing it out.

    Their priority is to put them off as much as they can so they don't have to deal with them.
