A thread for Fond Farewells

Greetings Adventurers,

This thread has been created to serve as a consolidated place for those who are leaving to say good bye, and those who are not to wish them a fond farewell.  As we all know every game is not for every gamer, but that does not mean those who leave cannot offer valuable feedback and insight based on their experiences, as such this thread will serve as a platform to collect such information.

Please keep your posts constructive and avoid flaming/insulting each other or your comments will be removed.

I'm honestly not really shocked, a bit surprised he made it so long.

I'll give the video a spin when I get home.

He's a youtuber that has a fairly decent following. Him and PVT Wiggles are friends and have done shared content.

Ok I just watched his video since I noticed it was pretty short...

TLDR he doesn't like the endless grind in an endless grind game. Pretty much exactly what I figured he'd do in the first place when he first started to cover BDO.

he rushed content and dealt with common consequences of doing so.  Not really all that insightful or interesting..

I don't know who PVT Wiggles is either, lol.

Aaa internet famous.... We didn't have such things back in my hayday. I would have no issue being loud and obnoxious to earn milions strraming games.

What makes me really go "Huh?" is how he supposedly went to the other servers to take a crash course and start making videos early and get a headstart on getting guides out but he didn't know about Grunil armor... I was like... then why did you even start playing on another server if you didn't intend to pay attention?

Yeah I thought that part was pretty ridiculous.  I mean, maybe he knew Grunil was coming but thought it would take longer to be released?  Either way kind of silly to bash the game when you rush to the end without being fully informed..

I agree with most of his complaints.  I hear these same complaints from a lot of people in my guild that are currently slogging through "end game" BDO.

I knew grunil was coming so I didn't bother getting my armor past +6 knowing I could just suck the stones out later.

I've quittes this game long time ago due to these reasona:

1. Field bosses

2. No diminishing returns on enchants

3. Not enough pvp content/gear rewards. 99% time you do pve.

 

I will watch this video and comment later if we hit same points

 

Edit:

 

1. He complains that bdo feels like job. Which is exactly my #2 point. Gear cap is too huge and it matter more than skill. If enchants had less value skill would matter more and people who have job can be competive too. In any other games there are no advantages so why the ----- can you get +80 ap advantage over someone in here with III and +20 enchants?

2. He tells about lack of gvg but gvg alone doesn't save this game. There is no reason to do gvg in first place with no proper gear/stone rewards. Majority of time you do pve.

3. Ok now he mentioned field bosses. Not suprise here. Biggest -----ing cancer in this game especially when top dps gets loot while rest get nothing to incrase further cap.

 

Yeah it's shit dead game.

Ok, i like the LazyPeon but i had to stop watching the video when he said " Why grind when i can play overwatch or darksoul instantly" 

So how can i take this seriously? hes clearly burn out with mmos formulas in general 

This video feels more like a general rant than anything constructive to be honest

as i said, i respect his opinion but this is just that, an opinion of someone whos bored of mmos in general

While that may have been wise for you at the time, you would have been removed from any hardcore guild for having crappy gear.  The majority of people in my guild were full +15 gear far before mediah dropped.

Yeah, I guess he wanted to be maxed out ASAP, but it's still just bad planning and use of time/resources.

Well just to clarify to be fair I think he says his grievance with it is finding out mediah was being released a day before and so he wasted time and money upgrading agerian shortly before that.

I like his first-look videos, but this video only reinforces why I take all reviews (movies, games, food, etc.) with a grain of salt. He really shouldn't play MMO's as they clearly are not the type of game he finds the most enjoyable overall.

I'm well past the point in my life where I bother concerning myself with people who would choose to kick out players for understanding upcoming content and planning for it. A guild that would kick me out because I knew the better armor set was coming within a month doesn't interest me.

 

Well just to clarify to be fair I think he says his grievance with it is finding out mediah was being released a day before and so he wasted time and money upgrading agerian shortly before that.

I *do* agree it's fair to be pissed to find out mediah was coming out with a one day notice.

I also think it's silly to go on the record to say you're going to go out of your way to be super informed ahead of time and then make such a massive oversight.

It took me like 30 min of research to find out mediah came out about a month after launch in RU and grunil was a better armor choice that would come with it.

I'm not hating on the guy exactly, but from his content and his personality I didn't think he would make it two months in BDO. He loves themepark MMO's and he's running a multi-game youtube channel.

BDO is a korean grinder that is the kind of game that demands all your free time if you want to be at the front of the pack and he's the kinda guy who wants to be at the front of the pack. Not going to do that dividing up your focus.

Everybody hates RNG, still devs think it's the next best thing after peanut butter and French fries. They all build whole games around it.
