Fun game

Interesting combat.

Good graphics.

Still alot of things to do and discover.

More fun with friends / guildies , getting griefed and seeing people from guild come help is actually nice.

Grinding usually feels more rewarding when done with someone you talk to (discord usually).

Not fun stuff?

The community , its shit and toxic , reading so much negative all around will eventually kill the mood and its actually quite sad.

Wish PA/Kakao/Mods/GM's would care more about the(ir) game and do something about the toxicness of community.

It boils down to the game being fun to play, that being said though the...

Atmosphere is dope, world detail is dope, open world is dope, combat is smooth as silk...  which is dope, graphics are dope, life skills and non combat related activites are dope, I personally get a grand sense of adventure when I'm playing the game and not min-maxing stats like I currently am and thats dope, exploration is dope, sailing the seas and pretending to be a marauding, wench hunting scurvy dog is dope, and it goes on and on.  

I dunno, a lot of what I like about the game is what I make of it myself, not like grinding or gearing but the experience I create for myself when playing...  thats a hard thing to quantify or put into words...  I just kick back and have fun playing the game *shrug*

Combat, graphics, the ability to do stuff by yourself without help, not forced daily dungeon spamming, I can choose what I want to do, life skills and grinding is very rewarding and worth doing, huge -----ing map, events, PvP is decent, node wars, housing etc. etc.

 

What sucks tho... failstacking is taking hours, suiciding hundred times to downgrade +15 gear, karma system is kinda crap, PvP should be more skill-based, many hidden stats or unexplained things etc. etc.

I totally agree with you. I wish they keep things less ambiguous.

I haven't done any PvP in this game yet. Some people say it's gear based, some said skill based. Too much RNG in gear from what I can see. So which one is true?

PVE.
The game design / mechanics are surprisigly well thought
the amount of work they must have put in this is insane,
this is by far the most well designed and inspired Mmo I've seen so far.
I have yet to hit an invisible wall somewhere.There's so much stuff on screen sometimes I Wonder how the game doesn't crash.
Unfortunetaly this game is advertised as a gankfest ,it's way more than that.
...at least until Lvl 50.

good gear is what will save you in battle. Thst being said, there is a point where if everyone was equally geared, knowing your class's strengths and weaknesses will determine who wins fights. Some classes are harder to master, some are gods with little skill required.

Graphics and combat system. I don't like any other aspects of the game and I will quit as soon as another game will offer me those two things.

 not forced daily dungeon spamming,

but you spam the same grind spot because only a few a really interesting, or spam particular one for an item having 0.000001% drop rate.

Honestly, its not better than "forced daily dungeon spamming"

that too yeah, like i said, clearly not better, especialy since a such trash boss spawn timer. And the X second scroll boss spawn cutscene is so damn annoying for a "boss spam" 9_9 ( and the boss fight are so far not even very interesting because very very average mechanic + super desync )

I don't. I never had any intention to even play this game when it launched because this game never captivated me. I am only playing this because there isn't ----- all else to play. If all the previous MMOs I played like didn't suicide and/or go Free to Pay (TERA, BnS, Wildstar, GW2, Archeage, Vindictus.........)  I would most definitely still be playing at least one those games because some of those are much better games than BDO at their core. But at this point it is scientifically proven that the amount of chromosomes MMO publishers/developers have are astronomically lower than your average game developer/business person. Besides WoW, I will just assume every new MMO from this point on will be utterly destroyed, literally by it's own staff, in less than 1 to 2 years.

Doing 10x relic scrolls is a form of torture and should be outlawed by the United Nations. I just tend to sell relic shards and use them to fund pila fe scrolls.

But for reals though, I have been prepping up all my materials for the Eupharia Sailing Ships when they come out, can't wait.  I so wish the cabin was a small player house that would straight up be amazing!

They need to introduce some new poses so people can recreate that famous scene from Titanic on the front of the new ships.

ahah.

yeah, i confess i never really did scroll boss spam, but, just doing 2 in a row i already wanted to press the /suicide button.

 

On paper, field boss / dungeon are nice, the problem is just how thoses lazy ass mmo devs use them. So their absolute need for somes loots.

( memory frag is one of the worse mechanic ever, and instead of improve that, no, they nerfed it even more because artisant memory 9_9 )

Pro's:

  • graphics & combat
  • STRONG sense of achievement in basically everything you do in this game, since the game usually just -----s you over everywhere.
  • having something to run in the background & afking while I'm thinking about what other better games i could play, or am waiting for other releases.

Con's:

  • everything else

Welcome to the world. Maybe there are some exceptions in the whole wide gaming world in some small communities. But usually if you have a mass of players you will realize that the most are just not cool.
