    I am cautiously optimistic about this game.  Nothing over the last few years has really excited me and I just rotate through the same games I have played for the last 5-6 years.  It would be nice to find a new game that I really enjoyed.

    Which sucks since it could be a good game for a Korean import, possibly almost as good as gw2; being open world and all. But too much p2w ruins an already shaky game.

    its not open world, its instanced and also you have hidden shields you cant fly trough. So you cant even fly trough all maps

    played the closed beta and the base game realy realy good, and it got alot of features, the pets system pokemon like realy fun too ! i would totaly play it if this was not with a insane p2win cash shop
    that realy a big waste to destroy this game with p2win cash shop... im not going play

    will never touch this game again, while i got money im not okay with spend 5x or 10x a subs to be competive, they go in new era with this cash shop.... they dont even hide it !! im curious how peoples will react, usualy dev hide the cash shop behind stuft so peoples defends these game, archeage, bdo ect but they just go fulll honest, we got a crazy P2WIN CASH SHOP LOOK !!!

    For PWI in 2008 it took thousands of dollars in the cash shop to be competitive in PvP so this is nothing new.

    Also, you threw in BDO which is a game that mostly has cosmetics in it's cash shop to the list of crazy P2W.  Maybe I'll give this game a closer look.

    Those flying mounts look pretty good, especially the dragons at the beginning
  • RhoklawRhoklaw Member EpicPosts: 7,124
    Basically pokemon except you don't acquire the good pets / mounts, you buy them in the cash shop. Just wait and see what the cash shop sells before getting your hopes up.

    Watching yt gameplay it looks like a TERA clone, minus the mount thing.

    Been in the last beta. I must say that I am impressed. The combat was also very good. Its a tab target, but it totally feels like an action style. And the pet-mount system was very detailed. I see myself spending months collecting everything I want :)
    I am only concered about the p2w aspect...

    Whew! Some crazy stats offered up in those founder's packs. Does anyone know if you can't get these easily in game though? I can accept some P2W as long as it doesn't go overboard or affect my personal enjoyment of the game (open world pk by whales)

    "Gameplay Trailer"

    I mean come on, there is zero gameplay in this vid.

    Seems like this game is going the same route of Aion.

    Again another game that is trying to make two sides of playerbases to play together. What do I mean by same route as Aion? You start leveling pve only maps then when you reach a certain level there will be maps with open pvp while others that have no pvp allowed. Those pvp maps also have dungeons in them so you'll be forced to go there if you want to do said dungeons.

    If this game will also have the grindy aspect of Aion you'll be forced to go in those maps if you want to level without grinding mobs that give very low exp.

    I'll wait until there's more information on this game as it's quite lacking.

    Lol, yeah, look how far we have come ! :D

    It seems that P2W is so common in games nowadays that the discussions often only center on how "affordable" it is...

    I played in the last closed beta and the amount of animals to capture was staggering - anything from a turtle, to a dragon and anything in between. It was a very decent game and we shall see about how P2W it is. I even have footage of some of the captures I did. You can also turn the mounts into pets that will fight with you - I had a shaman that healed me during fights. Very useful. Also, it isn't as naked anime as Tera is.


  • exile01exile01 Member RarePosts: 1,062
    well the game insanly p2w, also you cannot do endgame content without cash shop buffs.
    The game has a insane amout of trash items just to fill your bag to force you to buy bagslots
    you need even slots for pets/mounts. Some quests force you to let lose of mounts/pets to tame a pet so are directed towards cash shop.

    I wrote all the info you need to know that you will get on the nexon version:

    I've played this game during the english CB. It's quite good, compared to all the trash we normally see.

    So is this a linear quest hub themepark or is there a bit of freedom?  I'm done with required errand running for npcs.  I really dont care about taming everything if Im playing tab target with no freedom.

    its far worse. Its linear main quest with sub quests. You have many, many times to run back and forth. Sometimes even when you finished that quest, you are forced to go back to the SAME SPOT 2-3x, to move to the next zone.
