Is the game realy doing that bad in KR ?

97 posts in this topic

No the game is just doing bad in EU/NA. Server merge, free guest passes, they are desperate for players... well that happens when you only care about money.

i find it hard to believe its doing anyworse than any other MMO out right now.

I just took the screenshot of the channel list on KR now.

It's Wednesday 12:13 a.m. here and most channels are crowded. 

What do you think?

jus curious seeing all these topics how its realy low ranked in KR among all the mmos etc <.< old data tough cant find anything recent x.x

in that "old data" Lineage 2 is one of the top most played games, I guess all the new titles in the past 10+ years are just... garbage right? .... Yet L2 is not popular here. Form your own opinion rather than get swayed by bandwagon opinion or having a ranking of data hold heavy weight. The game is barely 2 years old in KR

Old games seem to dominate. Probably due to nostalgia. I cant quite understand the reasoning though. Ive never gone back to the first MMO I played just because of nostalgia.

First of all KR has a shit ton more games than we do in Europe. A lot of players are spread over them.  Also why does it really matter if its doing good or not there? If you like the game currently and enjoy your time then play it. What else are you gonna do lol

Because i not once invested my money and time into some MMOs that gone shit tier after 1-2 year...... and i don't like throwing out my time and money like that x.x
since then i seriously cautious what im investing in for long term fun ... i don't want to end up hitting my face into a wall after 1-2 year again....
Also the more popular an MMO is the more and bigger content updates it gets in the future :)

btw glad its doing great in KR :3

i dont realy care that much how its doing here ( how i see it its doing prety fine ) Because the content coming from KR that develops these content according the KR playerbase and how its doing there.

BDO is within top #10 RPGs played in KR at the moment. It's doing great. End of story.

Doesn't matter, if there's a market to build upon it will build upon it. Else game will die either way. Doesn't matter how well KR is doing if NA/EU is doing crap. If NA/EU is doing crap then this game will most likely shut and stay restricted to KR, but this game isn't doing bad.
A bad business is to have your successful region carry the deadweight region that isn't alive and pump it full of funds to keep it afloat rather than place that into content creation. People saying this game is dead or p2w are sorely mistaken and will parade that everywhere for as long as possible because they have nothing better to do. Boss still die in 30min-50min every day. Idiots who said this game will go f2p in half a year are clearly mistaken, the cash shop p2w sellers aren't at the topend of the game they really aren't, the costume prices haven't risen at all and this stupid conjecture about game dying or is bad is just salty tears at this point and if they think another game is so good why the fuq are they still here?

We had a merge(for the best purposes not because of a dwindling playerbase) and the economy is vastly different and there is so much more war going on, there's 36 channels with some being crowded still but unfortunately NA is swayed by massive weird public opinion of this game being P2W when there are several others that are much worse at the top spectrum of MMOs in popularity.

Doesn't change the fact that most people are swayed away from the game from the whole p2w debacle without actually drawing a conclusion for themselves or without connecting facts together on their own, they see a few large voices yell about it and then they're already convinced. It's unbelievable.

KR is doing excellent. They *added* 3 channels there last week (making for 40 now) which are almost all crowded during evenings. During the holiday season no less, when games usually get very quiet for a week or two.

How do you figure its doing bad? Anecdotal, personal experience with no basis in actual fact?

How do you figure out it's going good? Because you see players at bosses? There are lots of people that have quit, just make a research and you will see it. No, I don't like/want this but it's happening and the devs are doing nothing when they actually can.

Sure, making 3 Server with 12 Channels to 1 Server with 36 is FOR SURE BECAUSE  of Population...... we have a Genius here. ^_^

Good thing most People know that BDO was always meant to be a 1 World/Server MMO.

Good thing you know nothing about companies, go circle around the web and you'll see lots of videos or comments or whatever about why people quit BDO. I'm not hating, I'm being honest, the game fails on letting the players enjoy it with it's restrictions.

Have you personally counted the people who 'quit'? I constantly see whiners on here and on reddit which turn up a month later, asking gameplay questions when theyve returned.

I see people everywhere i go - Cities, grinding spots, even at the ocean at the most remote spots i meet people more often than not. 

From *my* experience, the game has gotten more crowded than it was at release, even though the game's map has gotten about 3 times as big (which people also conveniently forget constantly).

And what are they actually not doing?

I've personally seen thousands of people come and go.

They're suckered in by the graphics and story and general -----ing AWESOMENESS that is BDO....... then they experience the enchant system and poof. Kakao / Pearl Abyss makes it less noticeable by giving out free passes and having sales every other week, but how many of the freshies actually stay?

What's really sad is how easy it would be to "fix" the RNG enchant system. Make blackstones much rarer, change repairing gear to require the same item or a memory fragment or equivalent amount of silver. Failed an accessory enchant? It won't poof, but you will need the same item to fully repair it, or equivalent amount of silver. 

Could keep enchant rates the same, or even increase necessary failstacks. Just don't have people slide backwards.

*shrug*

But what do I know? It's not like I care about players being happy and having more people to PVP with or something crazy like that while. Like, we all know logic is taboo in BDO. ;)

Don't forget we just had server merge. And even with merge getting a grind spot in a "prime" spot even at "primetime" is, well........ those spots are open. It also appears to me that there are less people in towns than before. Even with all of the performance issues we get with each patch, my FPS in towns doesn't plummet to a slideshow each time I enter, and the waterways aren't vast swathes of white squares anymore.
