Bad Community.

For me the biggest pro is the open world. This is what an MMORPG world should be like. No instances, no (?) invisible walls, just one big world.
Biggest pro for me.

Con is the classes and combat. But most people actually like it. I should just adapt and see if I can live with it.
Personally I'm more into tactical combat.

It's not thaaaat bad :). Sure there are a few rotten apples, but I've seen much worse in other forums. I've seen better too, but overall, I'd say it can work out.

Useless answers aside, my biggest pro would be the dynamic fastpaced combat system combined with a designer team that actually have some talent and know how to produce a decent looking world.

You mentionned the grind, there's no escaping from it. If the combat system doesn't tingle your PvP needs I'd suggest you to look elsewhere, except if you want to play this like Farmville and not leave town.

Pro:- Combat - Immersive Experience - AFK/grind - Leveling Grind - Crafting - well like 99% of the game

Con: - Pearl Store Prices - Frame Rate Caps/system hardware caps - Lack of Instanced Groups (a few instanced places could be cool) - Inability to control amount of rendered players

Pros : The entire game!

Con?: Maybe the store being a bit to expensive but still I don't mind, other than that i can't find anything that i don't like so far. This is close to a perfect Mmorpg FOR ME.

Pros:  character micromanagement, the environments, day / night, crafting, travel options

Cons:  cash shop, some poorly designed UI elements, character creation, lack of a sub fee.

I only played the CBT2 and this is my pro and con

Pro

  • Big and lush game world
  • no instanced crap
  • No linear quest hub leveling crap
  • character creator
  • can sit on every thing
  • climbing
  • observe mod to take screenshot
  • Easy to get lost
  • nights are dark
  • rain is wet (although it looks like oil on your character because specular map are not detailed for water)
  • K-Pop idol in medial Europe

Con

  • Business model that will most likely hurts the game's longevity
  • Cash shop only items that are full game functions but have no alternative in the actual game (Pets and dye for example)
  • So much farming you can do it afk
  • Could have more things to discover when exploring
  • The game PvE is much more enjoyable when no other players around
  • Combat is reliant on ping

I feel like the combat is a bit lackluster but I cant say that as a fact since i only played RU and not beta. Still the entire game is a stretch regardless of the community and CS. I wish they had some form of trading. SOmeone suggested if x number of quest where done a day then you could do trading

My personal list after playing the Closed Beta. 

 

Pros

  • Engaging and fun combat mechanics
  • Deep and rich Game-play mechanics 
  • Best graphics in MMO I have ever seen
  • Day and Night cycle with meaningful differences
  • Fully Open World
  • Fun mini-games.
  • Generally speaking, healthy and friendly community (In Closed Beta at least). 

 

Cons

  • Paying gets you advantages (pay and you'll gain an advantage over others, it is a tiny advantage but regardless how tiny it is I will always despise such business practices in B2P games. Black Desert online is still a million times better than some other total P2W systems.)
  • Very annoying graphical pop-ups and extremely small view distance which leads to NPC's/Characters popping in and out constantly even on MAX settings.
  • Story is boring and the way it's told is not engaging enough for me to really care. Almost 0 World build-up, you get dropped in to the world with no idea of the factions or world events that are happening around, I presume you find out as you go but it would be nice to have at least the basic set-up. 
  • Mostly boring quests with few exceptions (maybe I just didn't find the fun ones yet).
  • Forums are a total mess full of arguments. 

 

So far I rate this MMO 9/10 despite all its faults but I will downgrade this status if they are not addressed properly.

I would say its pretty normal for a game with a lot of pvp. Still its not great either :D
