    The fact that the professionally recorded video of the live battle clip is stuttering and shows low frame rates. Tells me that they didn't fix the GPU memory sink in the games engine. One of the primary reasons it went back to development if i'm not mistaken. That and the boring gameplay and lack of content. I'll be waiting until after release to look into this game again. They've burned too many bridges already imo. So it's on them to build a new one and get my attention.

    To take something from the video and my opinion on this game

    "that boat has sailed"... and like @Keldor837 stated it doesn't seem from the video that the original problem has been solved, I would love to see this ggame make something, but i fear it will just be another flash by night ......

    This post is all my opinion, but I welcome debate on anything i have put, however, personal slander / name calling belongs in game where of course you're welcome to call me names im often found lounging about in EvE online.

    I was bummed when I saw "2018". However, I just realized that it's already almost 2018. lol

    It kind of has an EverQuest feel! Sweet!

    I'm really hopeful that the game will be decent, but the stutter in the trailer really baffles me... They shouldn't have added such scenes because it just makes you wonder if they have done anything or it's all the same.

    It's really sad how in the last 2 years or so, my expectations for MMORPGs went from hoping that they are really good to just hoping that it's decent enough to keep me from uninstalling :(
    My current stance with WoW's next expansion is the same. I just hope it's decent.

    It looks alright. I may try it out just because there isn't anything else on the horizon, but my hopes aren't high. Like the others I'm just hoping it's decent.

     When they started releasing info about updating things like the character creation etc, I knew they probably weren't going to bother fixing the actual problems.  Can't say I'm surprised they want to try and get their money out of it, but they aren't fixing the issues so no money from me..

    Looks good to me, can't wait to see more of it. And I've seen this video several times now but I don't see the stuttering people are talk about lol.

    only thing that would kill it for me is if it was P2W it just seems like an annoying culture fad coming from that side of the world every single fking mmo that comes from them is P2W despite knowing it won’t work here .

    I think they're talking about 0:37 to 0:40. Though I'm not sure if that's actual stuttering or if they purposely advanced several frames at a time for effect.

    Is this first hand experience or are you just giving your expert opinion based on other interest articles you read. You're talking like you've got first hand experience here.

    I'll be honest, I'm only going to try the game cause they let you have body tattoos at customization.

    What is your interest in body art and character customization. I've seen a few games with body art options but I've not seen someone comment about that as a significant factor in playing. That's interesting.

    Yeah I've seen a few MMO's with body art. I think the game with the most in depth Body Art customization was APB to be 100% honest. As bad as the actual game was (I liked it though for some reason) the customization was insane. 

    As for Bless, that video looks very good. I don't see the stuttering that people are mentioning, but I do see a bit of a time speed up that may make it look slightly choppy? I don't know. I replayed that section like 6 times and I hardly see anything at all. Once we get a full video of it in action then we can judge. But seeing 5 seconds of something and saying "OH IT STILL HAS THE SAME ISSUES THEY DIDNT FIX IT" is ignorant as hell. Especially if that was a glaring issue prior, and the company knew about it. I'm sure if they were willing enough to take the game down and do a rework prior to launching in other regions, I'm sure willing to bet they worked on whatever MAJOR issues people had with the game.

    I'm pretty certain it's an effect not stuttering.

    The interesting thing about this video is that it looks like an MMORPG gamers MMO, much like the Ashes preview stuff I've seen. Both of those games shout "classic mmorpg reboot" to me when I've watched the trailers regardless of all the other stuff (good or bad).

    You are correct, I've watched it over and over and it's the spell effects that are causing shaking.

    Well I am glad Bless is finally coming out here in the west. But the rebuild is still only about 50% complete at this time. Races are still missing (Iblis, Fedayin and Siren races), classes that haven't been updated to the new combat (ranger, mystic) and most importantly the optimisation and performance issues haven't been addressed yet.

    With all this work to be done, I would expect a late 2018 launch. But you never know with these companies.

    To be fair, all those clips you see in the trailer are over a year old, from the old build. The new "rebuild" build isn't finished yet, so we don't know exactly how it will run yet.
