>what is this game
It's basically a mix between street fighter, dark souls and other mmos
The game is mainly focusing on pvp and specifically 1v1 arena (pve is mostly speedrunning dungeons solo) where you can outplay your opponent, it's also f2p sadly but not p2w for pvp as gear is irrelevant in arena.
We're trying to setup an EU /v/irgin guild, the game isn't out yet but if you're interested you can download the TW client and play with us.
It's NCSOFT, honestly it sucks that it's f2p but the game isn't p2w even in grindy Korean land. The game is really really fun so it makes up for it.
Fug yeah it's Blade&Soul
The control scheme would be shit if the game wasn't 1v1 focused, it's better than Tera's control scheme for example.
>blade and soul
what mmo is close to this? its very different from generic mmo gameplay wise, just look at this
leveling is fast, 1day if you're "hardcore" 2-3 day if you're casual
play the game and you'll see, attacks have ranges centered to your character so you can miss very easily
It's not you fucking idiot. The controls are barely those of an action game, you really wont be doing significant combos, the only thing is you can have several abilities on a single key and do them in context sensitive moments. It has pvp, like just about any mmo, there's nothing exceptional about it.
If you actually want an MMO with actual action game controls and combos and for it to be PvP focused, you should look into Black Desert .
Leveling is fast, around 20hours to get max level
The execution is different from fighting games, you don't have 1frame links for combos and you have to aim and mindgame your opponent with tempo, it also doesn't really have footsies but you can still bait.
>comparing a sandbox mmo to a competitive pvp mmo
This is bdo pvp:
This is bns pvp:
2 completly different games
I remember playing the Russian private server. Game is fucking shit. It's another throw away Korean grinding game. Most people will try it, play for a day or two then forget about it's mediocrity.
Also it has almost nothing in common with either of the games OP mentioned.
It is nice to see an MMO at least try to balance classes on a 1v1 level. Haven't seen the hint of that out of Blizzard since the old vanilla class focus patches.
How long ago was that? 73 74 years ago?
I took PvP way too seriously for way too long. Like it was going to be a thing. Crazy.
Now I just masturbate. I take that seriously. I'm good at that. You?
i repeat: the russian server is not official, it's a p2w cashgrab, in the official version there is no grind or gear in the arena
i seriously hope you didn't pay for anything in the russian server
>playing a multiplayer game for the story
Why the fuck would I pay for anything in a F2P MMO? I played it for a few hours, saw how much of a gods turd the game is, uninstalled and forgot about it entirely.
The games shit. There is a reason it took so long to get localized.
>i played in a shitty private russian server and got rekt by p2w babies
>that means the game is shit
Can't take your opinion seriously
Because they're paid shills, and they're spouting random games to try and fool players into playing the game.
Dark Souls is a buzzword. "It's like Dark Souls" is pretty much the poster admitting he's being paid to advertise here.
>It's basically a mix between street fighter
this is what loli manlets actually believe
>private russian server
check your pc for trojans after downloading that shit
the game has counter/parry/dodge, the endgame pve is about soloing bosses doing big damage to you, that's where the dark souls comparison ends
i think it's because most people call ARPGs with parry "dark souls like" now..
>tera lewd shitposters
fuck that shit
imo because it's an "1v1 me fgt" type of game and f2p attracts a lot of kids so the faction chat becomes obnoxious, it's more of a minor nuisance than anything tbqh, better have tryhard esport shitposting than erp autism
>check your pc for trojans after downloading that shit
No worse than what happens when you install a shitty F2P MMO on your PC?
Or didn't you bother reading the TOS? And how by installing you've giving the publisher permission to harvest any information they want from your PC to use in any way, shape or form they want.
>one of the best pvp
enjoy the pay2win dog shit koreaboos
>I did something stupid and anyone who laughs at me is the same person
you did something stupid and now people are laughing at you
you used a private Russian server everything you say is worthless because of how stupid you are
Because it doesn't focus on 1v1 PVP. It's a shitty grinding MMO with all the P2W bullshit you'd expect. But it has a 1v1 PVP arena mode slapped on that hardly anyone plays anyway.
I haven't even played it I just know that whatever you say is worthless because of how stupid you are
im in EU and i'm interested in a /v/irgin guild, but i have a question, not that i actually but i'm still curious, was this localized by the same team who censored some content off the American version ?
Nigga, after the collapse of Starcraft, everything has become an esports in Korea. Most of it's tiny as shit though and after a few months people move on to the next big thing.
Hey, if you like playing with bottom of the barrel trash who can't even communicate with you, be my guest. I'm already occupied with pay 2 play MMOs where I know my peers are at least fucking human.
no idea for the final version, we had a ncsoft shill posting and he said that they fixed some of the censorship but pretty sure there already patches to uncensor anyways
if you care that much about pve and/or the story the EU guild is probably not for you as it's mostly pvp players
maybe but this game has been going for 2 years and is getting traction, it's becoming one of the most popular Korean game that's why we're getting a worldwide release with a decent publisher
is there a bigger cuck race on the planet
>check out classes
>exclusive to Lyn race
>looks like Elin
DROPPED THIS FUCKING TURD AND NEVER LOOKED BACK
>20 second stunlocks
>100 - 0% hp
WOW BEST PVP EVER I CAN'T WAIT!!!!
And this is people playing in tournaments, not some randoms scrubs who have no idea what they are doing. What a fucking joke.
I actually enjoyed this game a lot, but I can completely understand why people couldn't stand it. I made lv 40 RR... 72 I think? and was running TOTVL all the way through to the point where I had nearly all the tyrant gear for my swordmaster. It had probably the rockiest start of any MMORPG out there since they hyped up the pvp, and there *wasn't* any for months until everyone actually caught up to my level. Then there wasn't any pvp at all outside of prime time until months after that. Then there still wasn't any endgame pvp until many, many server merges later, and then it became my faction farming the other guys capital which is why I quit. No competition. Somehow in spite of all these issues my guild in that game was the best, and we had some great rivalries with a few of the destro guilds that kept it fun for me for a long time.
There are way more than 20 people in the open-world pvp zone and for open-world pve bosses, everyone is running their dailies there but yeah it's not big 300v300 laggy zergfest if that's what you want you should try another game.
if you people ever played any fighting game it was just to check out the waifus
stop acting like like no one knows why you're jumping on this shit too
>not playing fightan for the right to trashtalk
gameplay, trashtalk and waifus are all equally important
Fucking dropped. Nice name drops though.
To be fair, secret world did the same thing and it was AWESOME. Especially with the whole horror element and all.
Yeah, OP sounds like a shill.
Still, I'd like a MMO where I can roleplay bruce lee.
Newsflash, there is no such thing as something that hasn't been done a million times. Technological advances aside, the same games, stories, and events have unfolded in history thousands of times.
Its all the same shit.
The whole point of an MMO is large numbers. Once you take that away your MMO just becomes a lobby to wait in while you queue for arena. Don't make an MMO if you're not actually going to take advantage of the genre.
>1v1 pvp is generic
What? It's okay to not like competitive games or even the gameplay but they don't have to innovate on the fact that's it's 1v1 pvp..
There is no gear in the arena, it's normalized.
I disagree, not every mmo has to involve zerging and all the players at the same place, just like not every mmo has to have lobbies and competitive 1v1 pvp like this. Different genres for different people.
Yeah, and Korea is in a frenzy right now to find the next Starcraft. That's what happens when you build a massive multimillion dollar industry around a game that it's developer can kill with the click of a button.
>tfw I still unironically enjoy WoW's PvP more than any other current MMO's
in that regard, WoW actually has a hand up over most MMO's. Back when i consistently played, the only time i went over 100 was if something was going severely wrong, whether that be with the game or the internet itself.
Having a comp that isn't a toaster and internet that isn't australian helps though
Both of the pedo-exclusive classes dominate pvp in the international version currently, because we don't have Warlock.
Korean version has only one viable class for anything, Warlock.
/v/ loves their hardcore pvp games like Dark Souls so much, and I'm not implying that DaS isn't great or anything
But why did Darkfall die so fast here?
Like the only market it got big in was the asian server where japs battle koreans for days.
It's not even an asian mmo.
I played 1k hours of DaS1 and most of that was PvP, that shit isn't 'hardcore' in the fucking slightest so unless you're being ironic just laugh at anyone who implies such a statement.
Fair enough, most mmos with targed based combat arent really guilty. Im talking about games on the "action rpg" side, with hitbox based combat. Dragon Nest and Vindicus have both HORRIBLE netcoding.
>think it only needs the slightest of innovations
>give it only the slightest of innovations
>wonder why people still no like mmo
EITHER GO ALL OUT AND SET A NEW STANDARD OR DONT BOTHER MAKING A FUCKING MMO
I'm really looking forward to it. I herd master founders pack is the only one that's worth it.
Any other good pvp mmos to play while waiting? Was trying ESO but it takes forever to level and it's boring, I just wanna pvp but not high enough level to have good skills and morphs
The esports scene in Korea is growing in a similar way to things like Walmart. There is one (Riot sanctioned) giant, and everything else is being killed off.
There use to be TV shows, radio stations, websites, podcasts, internet TV and shit loads more about esports in Korea. Most of this shit is gone now and Riot control everything.
All classes are viable (warlock was op for a while but got nerfed hard in the last patch in KR) because all of them have ways to outplayed your opponent. Sin is very fun to play and takes some skill because you can get knocked out of stealth.
