Can you see in real life damage number? No? then so be it.

 

Why add damage numbers when 90% of the players is looking at the amazing effects anyway.

I want. If you think people won't consider your damage because there's no damage numbers you're wrong since you can link your weapon on the chat by pressing Shift+LMB on the item, people gonna ask you to do it anyway and it should be available in options to turn it off/on, in betas in KR we could see XP numbers on the screen, prolly dmg formula would be the same.

I can. When I punch some one I see white numbers. When I eat I see yellow numbers. When I go to the Doctor's I see green numbers.

There is already too much screen clutter, numbers would just make it worst.

Fixed :)

I would however support a combat log tab in chat so you can see your numbers there. But with all the aoes and the shit already going on on screen I don't want the number spam too.

When I look at my bills I see numbers and I'm emotionally damaged.

Damage numbers are useless while in combat, at least for bdo. All you gotta check is the health bar while attacking the enemy. If your not doing enough damage to effect the enemy, you'll know by just checking the health bar or by checking how much blood is being spilled. Adding damage numbers will only be useful outside of combat, which even then you won't be bother looking at while in combat, since bdo requires you to be focused while in combat and not just standing there pressing buttons.

I think a large part of it is due to the realism they are trying to maintain. If you were to attack an animal (please don't) in real life, you wouldn't see damage numbers. I think this aligns well with the knowledge system also. The first time fighting something, you aren't aware of its strength, health, etc. However, after encountering enough, you will see trends pertaining to how much damage it takes to kill a particular monster, and maybe learn some things about their weaknesses.

Eventually..there will be tons of people on your screen. 100v100 and the numbers.. they would be plentiful, but they would waste glorious processing power.

What are you guys playing on 15 inch CRT's??

I didn't think the UI was that bad at all last weekend..  I hated that every time I tried to drag a item to drop it a hotkey was made..but I learned a new function of the game that way too.

The devs want to make sure the gap between min-maxers and the average player is as enormous as possible.

They will figure out the optimal way to play with or without combat txt, while the average players won't even know that they are doing it wrong.

Hmm..Can you summon a black spirit in real life ? No, then so be it. What about kill nagas ? No, then so be it. You figure out the rest.

Well the problem there is that you were playing maplestory, which has zero redeeming qualities in the way of story, music, gameplay, cash shop ect.
