Lost Ark, and Star Citizen are absolutely nothing like BDO. Those games do not pull the same crowd and even if some of the population leaves for them, it won't kill the game. Lineage might pull a similar crowd but right now that game isn't even close to coming out and most of the people I knew who played Lineage 2 in any of my clans I was in went to BDO.unrealaz1 said:
The manner in which this issue was handled causes me great concern. As a Guild Master of a very large guild i had many people impacted, who lost the will to play this game. I myself suffered great loss, and frustration to this issue. I work as a System Engineer, and saw the manner in which they first attempted to shift blame away, then ignored farmed up data showing the issue with LeaseWeb, then finally shifting burden to the very players who reported for weeks of an issue makes me feel like their ability to tackle future challenges is left wanting. This isn't recent history either. Reports started surfacing of WAN Routing issues over Leasewebs relays months ago. It's very clear the methodology and cause is due to the desire to cut costs of infrastructure and provisional support vital to up-keeping a game of this size. The entire situation reeked of cash-cow practices more committed to their bottom-line by reducing overhead than anything else. The truly do deserve the name KashKao. Once a viable alternative exists, i predict a quick death in the months to follow. As an alpha founder, i'm quite heart broken.
while I'm sorry you are heart broken that seems a bit precious. This seems to be a gamer thing, wear heart on sleeve and if anything goes wrong just storm away.
Too much investment is going into these games where, if they don't fill some gap in one's life they become "dead to me".
What about, they had some technical issues, they didn't fix them right away but they are now solved and people can go back to playing. "Problem solved".
That's the thing, the problem will come back every time if they don't change LeaseWeb. And yes the game will be dead if something like The Lineage or Lost Ark comes out or Star Citizen. People don't just "storm away". You grow more and more fed up until you say fuck it and when you do, a lot of people will follow.Our whole guild which was even on EU gave up on the game and is playing filler games because Kakao doesn't deserve money anymore
So, i pay 60 euros for a AAA game with locked content and i have to be thankful for the fact that i "only" need 24 hours of game play in order to unlock said content ?
Have you ever played a video game before?
I'm sorry you can instantly teleport to max level and face the end boss and beat the game the MOMENT you finish installing?!
I mean, seriously - why is progression and having something to unlock/work towards such a bad thing?
You have to grind EONS to get all the costume unlocks in Super Mario: Odyssey and yet no one complains...
Did you just compare SW:BF II with MMO's the likes of WoW or TOR and CRPG's like The Witcher or Fallout or Skyrim ?
Have you ever played a video game before ?
yea sadly i have already bought it on PC and PS4, and I will probably own it on SWITCH soon
I'm guilty as charged as well... same exact thing :-(
Bye bye, Gazillion. It's glorious to finally see the F2P market crumble.
