Rangers may be underplayed in EU/NA BDO o.o

Just saw how rangers have the least activity on the class specific forums and realized: Giants may be more popular than rangers. That is both weird yet awesome to think about. I was worried rangers would be overplayed.

oh come on, we are 15+ years into mmo's and there are still people thinking that forums represent anything in those games? ^^ its a very special fraction of gamers that post in forums, and about 10% of a player base at most. you cant get a picture from such data. I guess there will be tons of rangerettes :)

Having played all the classes except for the ninja type class which will be released later on at some point I can see why its not very popular. Ranger at this point in time just seems to easy to play in the games current state. I'm not saying ranger is bad i'm saying that all the other classes are just more fun, engaging and entertaining. Once they make more challenging PVE content I would for sure level up a Ranger. I haven't come across any mob or group of mobs that i wasn't able to just strafe in a circle around them and fire arrows and never be touched. I bet i could do it with my eyes closed.

Thats why I said may. And I'm using proportions to approximate, unless ya know, there is something about all rangers that make them not want to visit forums...

 

So unless the sample size is skewed due external factor, the proportions I'm basing my "maybe" on is what I used to make my claim.

No way, Ranger and Wizard/Witcher have the biggest initial power spike in the game.
Ranger/wizard is the best classes to u start on this CBT both most poweful classes in sieges and to farm.

Eh, in all the "What class will you play" polls, Ranger tends to be somewhere in the middle, with berserker usually last.

I feel classes will gain more popularity as awakenings get closer to coming out.

Referring to this? http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/1860-poll-choose-your-main-class-non-released-classes-are-added-as-well/ 

Rangers aint doing so bad tho. But as said above - a forum will only represent a minor fraction of its player base. The Pre-order counter is up to 62K+ and we have something like max 1K people on the forums? 

- Jeasy

It's always happen because , 90% of players are Casual

The initial amount of Rangers will probably be slightly higher than other classes. But I think it will drop drastically, as ranger gameplay is kinda repetitive, and super squishy in pvp, if you're not kiting like a mad man. 

I see ranger as a good dps, but not very forgiving to mistakes. Grab from warrior or berserker? - Then you might as well take a sip from your drink, unless you outgear the person ( can't speak for max enchanted gears')

I'm sure this is going to be quite unpopular. :-) Personal opinion rangers will be played due to lack of other arranged classes. Few problems with Rangers key combinations not smooth. Forced skills charge wind and spirit healing feel like a waste of points or I should say lack of impact with points to the skills. Not trying to be a negative Nancy but after playing a wizard the wizards combos so much smoother. I.e. shift right-click tend to actuate dagger protection, kind of crappy when your target is 15 m away

bruh you lit; wind charge is your 100% fury ult; spirit's mental healing is the only thing that actually allows Q cancel to be worth doing in pve. Why you ever even use RMB melee is beyond me; F cancel is far superior mp regen
