Edit: I ended up buying the game after a few days. Honestly for now it's fun
and I've blown more on games I play less on steam. Mostly I like the
life skills and have been leveling slowly since I've mostly been focused
on fishing and farming and a bit of crafting. Also been doing a few
fetch missions in and around Heidel where I have shops ect. IDK it's not
a bad game if you like the micro-management stuff. I started out with
like one basic carrot and one sunflower, now I have like 4 fields or TC
There really isn't any other game like it currently; and it reminds me a lot of the fun I had in SWG. I hope Daum knows they may have a gold mine in this game; I see bright future if they can get the minor issues sorted out within the year. We shall see. If anything I will play till I see something else that's better...but for now I'm not seeing any.

I am not entirely sold on this game. It really is a love-hate thing for me.
It was interesting and fun at times; but to be honest something about it seems rushed and unfinished. Perhaps it’s the fact that many of the features from the Korean version are not yet implemented. Quests are there, but barely, and they really do not attempt to sell you on the lore of the game to get you really hooked in the beginning. What story is there feels really detached. I had to watch a video on youtube to understand a lot of the lore.
I’m also kind of worried about the lack of game support. Is anyone at the helm over there at Daum Games? It’s like they must be running a skeleton crew. Ticket responses are slow, and do not ask in chat as it’s like playing Russian Rolette with the answer you get. You might get nothing, or you might get shot in the fucking face for asking xD. I watched it happen many times in chat and felt bad for the people asking, but I couldn’t help them being new myself and not knowing the answer, so I just decided to turn chat off so I wouldn’t be a witness to whatever was going on there xD. It’s the internet so trolls are expected, just seems pretty bad in this game at the moment.
The game has multiple personalities: Is it a PvP centric
game? Is it a sandbox PvE game? Is it a PvPvE game? It doesn’t do any of it super
well so I can see the confusion.
Honestly it’s not the best PvP game I have ever played.
Stuff is really still unbalanced and not fun and I imagine if and when they fix
it people who were playing OP ranged classes will have hurt feelings over nerfs
ect and leave; oh and Warrior sucks to play in PvP. Tanky? Uh not really.
BDO really does not do PvE super well for me either. It
feels all over the top at times…and I never really feel like it was a close
fight with anything I take on. Satisfyingly close battles? I think not. Nothing
in the game world feels threatening, hence why they attempt to fall back on the
PK crutch, which is a terrible idea in a Western MMO btw. Sometimes it felt
like I was playing wack-o-mole with a weed eater; which can be fun for a while,
till you realize 2 hours later nothing has been a challenge. It’s like saying
mowing lawns is fun… it’s always the same. At least we know Warrior is a great
I would say it does micro-management sim decently. Sad part is most people who love those kinds of games would never touch PvP with a 10 foot pole and are leaving this game fast; hence all the bickering on the forums.
It kinda reminded me of swg, yet not. One thing I loved
about SWG was the diversity…some of my best friends were crafters and it made
the game feel like a close knit community, something I guess people do not want
here, missed opportunity on that one.
PvE players say, “I just want to craft and fish and be left
alone”. PvP-Pks say “wtf n00b, this isn’t
the game for that. GTFO and go play Hello Kitty Online ---leave”.
What does Daum do? Nothing really. Why so timid Daum? It’s like they invited a bunch of frat boys along
with the book club geeks all to the same party then ran to hide in their room
so they didn’t have it witness the chaos that would ensue.
Knock knock…hey Daum..you do know the frat boys have shit all over you house and have all the book club geeks tied up and are now beer bonging them with urine right?
It’s almost like they have no experience running an MMO or community
sites otherwise they would squash that bickering shit fast.
Not sure why people feel so strongly about at least putting
pve players on a separate server so they can have their peace and so they don’t
have to listen to them complain about being killed, but I guess running them
all off and having less people playing is a better option for them? Sure it gives you a laugh for a sec
wtflolrollin some poor squishy girl named Becky tending to her wheat field; but
that player might just never come back to the game over something as simple as
that. You as a PvP-PKr will move on to the next game once the novelty of this
game wears off. Daum doesn’t seem too keen on that one.
“Line our pockets with money; we’ll sort it out later”
They would be stupid not to cater to a larger player base but whatever; it’s just another Korean grinder imho.
Anyways I liked the game based on what I played of it despite what I stated as shortcomings (it has potential), but I’m a little worried it might get boring fast since there isn’t enough to keep me vested in it more than a month. I don’t see that being worth the money for me at this time. I also can’t help but feel this is just another FOTM game everyone is playing till something else comes along; but hey I would be wrong. In the end I won’t be me making the buy on this game….. right now, but I will keep an eye on it and may consider buying it in the future.
