Game population?


6 posts in this topic

Posted

Greetings!

 

Recently i didnt really had time to play, so when i came back ,i browsed my list of games, and after my friends convinced me to play Blade and soul (again) with them, i got utterly bored with it. Its just....bad. 

Been considering FF14, since ppl say its a game that has a future, and devs actually care, and that its a good trinity pve game (and man i been missing trinity for some time now), but still, i keep thinking on BDO, i do have an lv 45 warrior and thinking on rolling a Sorc or Wizard...not ot mention the upcoming Dark Elf sounds cool in itself, but is it actualy worth "sinking" time on the game?

I mean, Pve is basically just grinding mobs, and crafting things, and trading (that is fun for some time...till it takes days or weeks to get anything done), not to mention you might as well do it alone, since there is no real diff in playing with friends or not. For PvP i cant talk, but i assume!!! its a shitfest ...sorry, but Lineage 2 sieges are the baseline for me, and simply cant imagine battles like that, without utter megsuper lagspikes and stuff. Or more like...cant imagine so many players in BDO at all. 

But most important...are there any players left at all? I keep hearing on media channels ppl keep leaving the game, and think that the game is getting nowhere...trough it gets content..the things that are making the game bad are not changing anyway.

So my question is : What is your opinion on this topic? Is it "worth" sinking time in the game, at this moment? Will players stay or the game gets deserted within a year or so? Anyone first hand Experiance?

People will keep on crying game is dead, meanwhile bosses go down under 1 min, spots are always taken on all channels and channels are crowded during primetime.

Correct me if im wrong but isn't the mega server kind of a server merge? Don't they do this when server populations are low?

From my opinion, that's more player than ever. Play in Jordine EU. All grinding spots all often taken already, no reason go to World Boss, he is already dead before you arrive. Heidel is so populated so the graphic card (GTX 960) can't load all data in time..
That is always player who leave, player who coming back, player who start. A normal flow in games today. Let's see when player come back from WoW again.

Once again:

Status quo

3 server/ 12 channel each = 36

 

Server merge

1 server/ 36 channel

 

Think about it.
