  3. Oakenkeg added a post in a topic Why play BDO when you can play WOW or GW2 ?   

    Firstly, in wow you get level max in a few hours???? Lol no. The cap is so stupidly high now that it can take a month to get a toon to cap (they should have made WoW2 by now for sure).
    I pretty much agree with you on everything else though.  BDO has a PERFECT combat system with a huge skill cap, that is COMPLETELY ruined by the fact that skill matters for shit.  There should be a hard cap at 56, and gear should only give you a 10-20% advantage in combat at it's greatest.  That would make this game perfect.

  5. Oakenkeg added a post in a topic So I started my week long trial...   

    You compared it because a game with a lot of systems to learn is the same as a game that is known for it's difficult gameplay? Not even remotely the same at all... DS will be remembered forever, BDO will be forgotten in no time.

    They're literally nothing alike at all, BDO isn't difficult gameplay at all, but whatever

    LOLOLOL You're one to talk.
    Go back to your carebear game where grinding mobs for countless hours because you have no life makes you think you're good at PvP.

    LOLOLOLOLOLOL
    No, hell no. Dark souls is an amazing franchise that brought difficulty back into gaming.  BDO is a korean grinder that's terribly unbalanced, relies on RNG, and has no goal other than making silver and getting your wizard the best gear possible so you can one shot a group of people.
    You can't even remotely compare the two, having a lot of shitty systems in your game that take time to learn doesn't make you Dark Souls.

    I can stay alive well enough, but I also don't want the mobs to be so hard that my xp per hour suffers because of it.

    Best places to solo level?
    What are the best places to solo level past 56? I hate the conflict at Sausans, Pirates are too far out, and prefer to stay out of a group.

    Solo Leveling
    What are the best places to solo-level past 56? I hate the crowds at Sausans and Pirates are too far out.  Also hate grouping to level.

  12. Oakenkeg added a post in a topic Please optimize the game so we get the same FPS that we used to get 6 months ago   

    Sad as it is to say, I really wish they would instance the different areas (mediah, valencia, calpheon, ect.).  I wouldn't mind a loading screen when going in if it meant that the game would be fully optimized and pop in would be eliminated.

    Right?!?! Especially when there's only one way to get to 60.

    All those games have tournaments that are widely streamed and have large cash rewards... Yeah they're e-sports.  Sorry that you obviously don't seem to know what that means.

    So I'm guessing you've never heard of Twitch, or been there during any of the regular MMO PvP tournaments... WoW, GW2, BnS, should I go on? Plenty of MMOs are esports.
