Just no to a straight Korean port of the game. Their enhance system is the absolute worst in Korea. And a lot of other things, but that's what I dislike the most.

you say that but you will still play the game... >.> You create a game, develop it, mass produce for all to play, and lets see yours be stable... No game in any MMO has ever "ever" been perfect... All games have some sort of flaw, some larger than others.

I've seen plenty of MMOs that might not be PERFECT, but are at done on-time and stable.

I've considered making my own MMO, but the initial cost is pretty high unless you have some form of funding.

i am a bit annoyed with the CM's for not announcing the delay sooner, if they know they wont make the cut and have to extend by 3 hours, surely word coulda been given 1-2 hours ago saying we're going to need to extend this, how long is yet to be determined. That way we can alter our day accordingly.

I have seen MMOs that were perfect when they initially came out, but usually those quickly go downhill once people start playing the game and money starts to get in the way of the game.

In the older days though, people did make amazing MMOs that weren't concerned about money, but rarely lasted long due to server costs.

Essentially, it becomes a balance between making money and turning the game into a money sink.

I see, short lived:(

most MMOs i see now are published by massive money-hungry companies who only care about the profit :(

Yea and those "MMO's" you've played did they come out perfect after the updates? I very highly doubt they have... >.> Come on making your own MMO lol, i was being facetious... Even if your game was the embodiment of what you and every gamer wants there WILL always be someone who complains about it...

that's not very nice.   they have supplied the community with a very unique game comprising of many best elements which can be found in pieces in various other games.  a lot of effort has definitely been put into the game (mechanics, npc leveling, minimizing gear gaps) as well as the cash shop (no real pay 2 win items).

I am sure their technical problem has a logical reason beyond simple incompetence -- as can be found in many other mmo's.  I am also certain that data migration and patch roll-in can be done in a much shorter time-span assuming the migration script was written and tested prior - and same with the game server / client update.  Unless there is a ridiculous amount of data to migrate , or the structure is weird,  or ...  the server / client patch were not tested prior to migration and they do a backup first -- delay of launch can certainly be minimized to something significantly shorter than 13+ hours.

kashKao never been professional - I play KUNO I know -sry but opinion about this company is very poor

PS: This is my opinion;-(

Revival, the devs reassured us that we didn't need to fund the project, they had the money prior to even beginning the designing of the game. Then the project was abandoned cause the financial resources had to be shifted to SC. The player base begged them to fund the game via a kickstarter, simply because it was gonna be a real next generation MMO and they still declined to even give us the hope of the project's future continuation. 
So, if you do have a unique idea, if it's good and if you are willing to see it through unlike them, trust me, there is a vast playerbase that will support the funding. People are throwing 500 dollars on PETS in BDO as you can read right in this thread. You will be amazed.

Pearl Abyss is the controlling factor in the content being given to KashKao as you put it... The prices, the game mechanics, pretty much everything KashKao does to the game has either came through Pearl Abyss or had to get permission to make changes... I play kuno as well, i feel your pain..

Woah guys, some of you get so angry about the downtime. Calm down, theres plenty other things to do outside the game.
It was to be expected, go take a nap, go for a walk, meet a friend, watch a movie or series, find some new music to accompany you during BDO adventures!

I wonder if they say next time 48hr maint, and it comes up 42hrs early, would that make everyone happy ?

or would they remain incompetent for opening servers earlier than predicted ?

Both. the other side of the fence would be crying that it was done early assuming that would mean super buggy, (cause no one tests their patches these days apparently)

I have yet to seen an PERFECT MMO tho :o

I would say the closest i have seen to perfect in a PvE sense was Rift when it first released. Everything about it was amazing from graphics to customisation to gameplay. Even the Hammerknell raid was awesome.

 

Then.... Trion :(

 

PvP wise i dont think any MMO can or ever will manage anything near perfect. Too difficult to balance open world against arena against GvG mechanics.

Clueless....

No idea about what they are doing, No idea about the processes involved in transferring hundreds of thousands of characters, millions of items etc.

Fair enough.  In fairness, it was a creative passive and accurate representation play on their name based on how you feel  :)

I am fairly new to the game so I don't have that feeling just yet.  I just feel that they have mitigating factors which could be addressed with proper streamlining. A 13+ hour migration, seems a bit excessive - possible accounting for downloading the patch source on a really slow connection, then modifying it to match NA cash shop prices / hedge fund trolls wishes - then compiling - then data migration.  In other words, no real preparation allotted due to bad channeling / forking / branching.  With proper planning , and prior testing , it really shouldn't take this long.  We do want it done correctly as end result, of course, but I would prefer a  "patch has been delayed" to "downtime has been increased"

lol, yea "so we expect a 48hr maint. this week, but if we feel that it will be finished sooner we will let you know..." (two hours into maint.) "Good news everyone we decided we love you all so much we're giving you a half baked update, have fun roaming around with buggy mechanics... Also don't worry i'm sure all your hard work and dedication to your characters will be thoroughly erased..." Thank you for playing!!!.

Well, i did hear really good things about Rift but thinking about trion makes me think about AA and that shit wasn't even a game, more like a fckfest.
