    I was really tempted to play on the KR server but really didn't have the time. Now I'm just waiting for the NA/EU release. Looking forward to this game, reminds me a lot of an old favorite of mine which is Aion. I just hope it's less grindy than Aion, and with better crafting.

    Lag...Cash shop  totally open pvp everywhere even in cities.Can you imagine trying to click a npc and someone is constantly attacking you,such a bad idea for a game design,too bad because it looks really nice.

    Like all the rest of these Korean games,i expect 1 server and near empty after 1 month.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    Another gankfest open world game.  Pass

     Too bad the game designers decided to kowtow to the ganker crowd. Nothing keeps subscription retention high like 24/7 ganking harassment the moment that you logon.

    Bless looks pretty good.

    Well I play it now and it is not a gank fest. The World is massive and seamless. Beautiful. The classes all play unique. This surprised me. The level of detail in the classes is great. I am Korean and play on the Korean servers but not sure what will change coming to the West.
    PvP is not as forced as BDO is. The game has amazing PvE

     I have been excited to play this game, but if this is another gank fest, I will pass.

    Sounds cool. Are there systems in place to prevent mass ganking? Genuinely curious as you seem to be the only one who's actually have played it.

    When will developers go outside the norm and make a game not PvP with sandbox elements?

    Not so much to prevent it.
    At level 30 you are basically flagged. The quests for that level and higher are shared between factions. There is a couple of items (two that I know of) that will prevent you from getting killed by another player. Grouping is almost required at about level 20 to 25. After level 30 it is pretty much impossible to solo anything. (Not that you can't, I watched a Mystic drop three mobs that my Pally struggled with and died)
    The group content is great. Some of the better group content I have played in some time.
    PvP still happens and you can be ganked. No death penalty, so far anyway. You can run away from players trying to kill you and it is funny I see it at times. Some guy flying across the screen running from another player.
    You even get experience for it but the community, at least mine, is more focused on the RvR 100 vs 100 battlegrounds.

    See,I don't like the idea of automatically being flagged for PVP, it should be my choice if I want to participate or not. The good thing is that if I don't like it, I can quit and play something else,which forced pvp has never been a money maker for any game studio making rpgs,they usually die rather quickly

    I agree that it could be an issue if brought to the West with that in place as it is back home. Yet there is a chance that they would see that as not a wise thing to do in a Western release. I think how well or not so well the Western community responses to BDO after it has been out for some time will perhaps decide how they want to change or modify the way they are planning to do PvP in the West for Bless. The one on one PvP I rarely see. even sitting at lvl 36. Grouping and group content is so much a part of the game at that point that you rarely find yourself alone to be ganked.

    I did not played this game yet, but I did use Google and have found infos which do not show Bless as recommended for PVE fans. PK seems to be a significant aspect of the game. blueturtle13 mentioned this stuff already.

    Yeah it is a concern for some who only want to PvE but the way we have all been playing it is more as a PvE game. The PvE content is much better than many games with PVP as it's major design. That, I think anyway, is why it is garnering the praise back home. The PvP is great to be honest. But I would say far more than half the player base on my server does not PVP outside of doing battlegrounds.

      I watched two players camp a dungeon entrance to PK as someone came out and they got cut down in less than a minute from the group that had been in the dungeon. There seems to be an etiquette to the PK. At least from my experience. I am sure there is ganking going about I just have not seen it much.

    The questing is average but the story is above average. I like the world better than BDO and I like BDO. It just feels right to me. I like that since you can get a mount at 20ish you will be walking a lot at first but the ability to Hire a Dragon to fly you somewhere is awesome. Plus you can hire a Ferryman to boat you somewhere. Which is the way of travel I like the most. The weather effects were not in game yet but it is supposed to rain, snow and have fog and leaves falling from trees.
     
    They use UE3 instead of their own engine like BDO does. Regardless, the rewrites to the code must have been heavy because the game is amazing to travel through. More than any other UE3 game world I have ever seen. There are many features not in the beta yet that I am waiting for. As it stands it is a great game and I think there would be an audience for it in the West if they manage to sort the PVP angle out. I believe they are just planning to do what BDO does with PvP but unlike BDO, Bless is made for groups and group content on the PvE side of things. That is what I think will draw players to it more than anything. It has me anyway.

    Sounds like a game i will love. I was surprised when i heard it was made with UE3 because this game looks so fantastic.

    I think they should make PvE and PvP servers when they bring in it to west.

    IT better be alot better than Aion....I thought that one was an overhyped piece of garbage.

    As a follow up, they have added the weather system into the Beta. The thunderstorms are awesome. Booming thunder and lightening flashes and the rain effects are great. Skies are dark and it really sells the experience of immersion

    I am an old fan from L2 (since 2001 on official server).
    Some guys who worked on L2 are working on Bless.
    I hope it will be a good pvp game in a fantasy way.

    I wait .. I wait..I hope..
