In light of huge hype for BDO and shocking truth from players that actually tried it now.

I mean , we seen it so many times. The game praised to by media. Best graphic, amazing gameplay ... just for it to literally disappear in oblivion weeks after its released.

My latest experience was Sword Coast Legends. The game was praised even on this site as the best D&D game, truest to its table top form. Just for players to discover in first beta that game gameplay ruleset is nowhere near D&D, and that press was either lying trough their teeth or have no idea what is D&D.

And now we see this with BDO.


The following example is from game called Evolve:

    So you see why I tend to ignore pre-release hype and get around to looking into games some months after launch.  Or years.

    The shocking truth is that the truth is not that shocking.

    its a fun game.  and its a grind.  im sure it will carve out its playerbase like we've seen with GW2 and FFXIV.  as opposed to ending up like Tera or AOC or ESO.  Im guessing its size and playerbase will end up looking something like Aion.  Which is perfectly fine.  

    IMPORTANT:  Please keep all replies to my posts about GAMING.  Please no negative or backhanded comments directed at me personally.  If you are going to post a reply that includes how you feel about me, please don't bother replying & just ignore my post instead.  I'm on this forum to talk about GAMING.  Thank you.

    These recent mass hype and failures are only happening with a specific type of genre. They tend to have several things in common.

    -PVP
    -Korean made or published
    -Cash shop
    -Action combat

    Tera, Wildstar, ArcheAge, Blade & Soul, Black Desert, etc

    First of all - these are shocking 'opinions', and not 'truth'. They were shocking to me as well, because I don't agree with most of them. Yet, they are entertaining.

    What needs to be understood, is that a large number of people enjoying the game, are doing just that. Enjoying the game. They're not here posting on forums about what they hate. I see no problem in voicing your opinion, as that's what forums are for, but do not mistake it for 'truth'.

    Wildstar?! NCsoft was the publisher! Did you know a fair majority of the developers and designers were from WoW?

    The emptiness of hype and truth of limitations shouldn't be shocking to anyone. I don't really have much sympathy for people that can't manage their own expectations.

    @Quizzical is absolutely right, especially if one can't manage expectations.

    This is why I don't pre-order games. I like to wait a few months after a game releases so that I can read actual player reviews about a game.

    I've learned not to take any notice of 'professional' reviewers or media coverage.

    They keep making games like this because you all keep buying them, stop buying them =)

    All of a sudden I feel much better about NCsoft as a company and it's Korean associated roots.

    Suppose it actually exceeds your expectations and the expectations are set really high and full of criticism before you open the box.

    I'm tired of treadmill quest hub  kill and kill games. yeah it is there BUT there is so much more to do than kill and kill.

    NO it's not perfect but a hell of a lot better than most.

    I didn't think BDO was hyped much, but regardless I think it is pretty good.

    Not sure what is so shocking, lots of people seem to like it, the usual haters on these forums hate it, a few weirdoes pop in for the first time to rage about how its a scam and implore us not to play it, and some angst about a pretty mild cash shop. Seems a pretty run of the mill response?

    I agree that sword coast was a bit of a let down though.

    how is that funny?  sure it was hyped,  like 2 years ago.  this game is about to finally release and half the people want nothing to do with it.  there is no hype,  because we have all been burned too many times?
  • RzepRzep Member UncommonPosts: 767
    The only shocking truth here is that OP does not see how stupid this whole thread is. Creating one based on examples of games in different genres, also both examples having nothing to do with each other or BDO...

    As for the game being hyped or not. It has sold half a million copies already so it is safe to say if you want to play it, you don't have to fear it dying anytime soon.

    Before OP brings up Evolve again: 

    Evolve sold 500k since release on PC.
    BDO has sold 500k before its release.

    I found it "interesting" but a lot of stuff was just a little "meh"
    Still got no clue what with the "nodes" are.
    Weapon and armors are boring. no diversity, bns has no armors but at least you can customize it a little.
    GFX looks okey nothing realy amazing, got no clue what the frame rate of others is.
    I used 2560x1440 on a GTX780ti Xeon 1230v2  (sandy bridge 3.3Ghz) with everything on max and had no problems with it.
    Crafting no clue most stuff seems useless to me.
    "Sandbox" well maybe when they started with it but looks like a Theme park with lots of useless stuff added to make it "look" complicated.

    Would i fork over 30$ to play this game witch is "F2P" in the rest of the world, No.
    Come on we all know it will be f2p anyways they just grabbing some extra cash.
    I can wait.

    Would i play it if it was F2P, well yes, i like to see what happens beyond 45 with pvp.

    WildStar is not Korean. Tera, ArcheAge and Blade and Soul are not failures. Far from it. TERA is the most played MMO on Steam. ArcheAge remains one of the healthiest populations in the genre and Blade and Soul has been a smash hit. You do not have to like the games Kiyoris but those are the facts.

    Let me clue you on nodes so you can understand their importance.

    You have to open a chain of nodes across the world so you can send the materials from a node to different cities and depending on market conditions and cost to make more profit. You need workers so you hire workers from different places to work the nodes like mine, forest, farm, etc so you don't have to do it. You have to have stations to produce product through the crafting from raw materials. You level up your nodes to get lower taxes and better bargaining power with the market.  You level your workers to get better rare harvests and better materials and more production.

    It is extremely time consuming so you go out and do quests and kill mobs to get items that are not produced by nodes.

    It's frickin addictive as hell.
