Questions for the Archeage players who play BDO

59 posts in this topic

I know it did, since it was based on an actual novel I believe? I still feel like they didn't deliver it as well is all as BDO does, at least judging from the very beginnings of the game.

BDO's Story itself is extremely boring and bland. You most likely wont even realise when you have completed the main storyline because it is so bland. The lore is decent but you really do have to read though stuff inside the game, the quests barely show any lore. Most of the lore u will read through your encyclopeia or via a ? button after talking to an NPC. BDO's lore is better than AA's but i found AA's lore to be garbage for the most part.

I don't know this for sure cause I can reading shit, but isn't BDO much more about the self while AA is focused around what's going on with the world?

Well at least in BDO you have a Black Spirit thing that somehow makes you curious. In AA you basically had to find out everything yourself, for the most part anyway. At least that's how I felt. Not that I care too much about it but a good lore helps immerse myself into a game imo.

I really enjoyed AA there were many aspects of the game that were enjoyable, what finally drove me away was Trino/XL's inability to run the game. Auroria release was a complete mess, thunderstruck AH price crash due to Trion/XL was a joke & cash shop p2w just don't get me started on that aspect. The game had potential in the right hands unfortunately the right hands were not Trino.

 

^so many times this

I always felt like i was playing some cheap knockoff of other games I've played when I played archeage. It had bits and pieces straight lifted from other games, but implemented in a way tat was slightly clunkier and less polished. Plus P2W.... Yuck.

ArcheAge combat is literal shit. I really don't see how people enjoy that at all.  So for me BDO wins in combat and graphics and a bunch of other categories, while in some others I'm still reserved.

Its also winning in Management, though this is a criteria that will be evaluated over time. So far, Daum is knocking pre-release Trino out of the water, hopefully it stays that way.

As for lore - I always feel like people refer to the green questline in AA when they talk about how boring it is.  Which yeah, I guess if that's all you did then you missed the entire underlying game. There is a ton of lore and intricately woven stories, feuds, backgrounds in AA but yes you have be willing to find them.

As for BDO lore - I really am hoping there is more the deeper you go. One of my goals is to exhaust all communication potential with all the npcs one day so yeah I really hope its more what is on the surface.

So after many many months we need to make some new conclusions, anyone have anything to add after BDO with fraud from B2P become true P2W game?

I heard population drooped rapidly .... I know that me and my friends stopped to play it before two months +/-, still coming from time to time to see any big changes, but still nothing.

What is most awfull in BDO, stupid karma system and punishment need to be reevaluated, need to add raid options instead party only, normal swimming instead drowning (keep that fish suits sale for something else instead destroy game on sea with cash shop in every aspects), also that cash shop makes this B2P game in rank with all F2P avaible at the moment.

Trion will open new servers in few days.  Only new accounts can be log in this servers. They said no more items P2W on the cash-shop.

Look at third paragraph.

 

I think A LOT of people ( and new players ) will be there.

You do realize that it goes on to merge with a Legacy server within a 6-9 month timeframe, as stated, and also that the p2w aspects on the legacy servers will be slowly introduced in the fresh start server, also as stated, right?

Nice. I think also will be there with one of that new clases, AA at last have some endgame content as i remember, wasnt there for almost year, i loved there to hunt delphined ghostships with my guild, kraken, naval battles, fight for trade packs on freedich etc. so much fun. BDO endgame content is dull imo, dont know will anything change with margoria expansion. Time will show.


Does BDO died too fast? imo looks like one game what almost not existed and died before it become one adult, most say it is bad decisions and blame here west publishers, but it is dead already in Korea.
