Nice graphics. Where?

Before I bought this hunk-of-junk I kept reading about how beautiful the graphics were.  What?  The graphics, to me,are disgraceful.  No wonder they over saturate the colours, to hide the gawd awful mess they have the Gaul to call graphics.
The rest of the game follows suit, one big mess.  They made this game up as they went along not having a bloody clue as to what it was suppose to be.
BDO, for me, has to be the worse MMO ever spewed up in the history of MMO's.

    Man, i dislike BDO because of the economy, and the random gambling, but to say it has bad graphics is ass nine. There is no other MMO, that even compares to BDO graphics. Even Skyrim modded is not that much better. Add in the animations which are great in BDO, and graphics are better than anything out there in the RPG world. What are you just trolling, cause you dont like it lol. 

    As far as your theory of them not having a clue, well I dono how you got that one. They had a clue as to what they were doing. There goal was to get people addicted to gambling, and it worked for them.

    You might want to play with the UI and turn off the default filter. Seems like Asian mmo players like the bright colours. Also other player effects.

    Wow OP, you are so edgy. Hating on the ONE thing just about everybody loves about BDO, its graphics. You could have named dozens of things that are wrong with the game but nooooo, you had to be awesome and decided to ruffle some feathers. You're not even giving any insight on WHY you hate the graphics. Troll effort at its minimum...

    It is just huge resource waste....'

    Well, I thought it would be obvious.

    No other mmo?

    So you mean FFXIV is not comparable?
    First of all,i am not saying BDO graphics are bad as they look visually pleasing.However i would HOPE people understand there is a LOT more to graphics than just visually appealing,you have to actually have a bit of knowledge in this area.
    I won't post my usual 8 paragraphs trying to explain it so i just hope people understand game design before just getting out the flame cannon.

    I tend to agree, ran the game on highest settings at 60fps. Hated the texture popups and grittyness of the textures. Not at all "amazing" graphics

    It really boils down to personal taste doesnt it .... I didnt like BDO graphics , cant quite put my finger on it , but there was something just unsettling ... I think ESO and FF14 are more appealing ... for my tastes

    What are you even talking about? It is hard to find and combo of words you use that I don't find laughable. The game is not perfect, but it is good for certain, and looks better than any MMO out there. You are wrong. Wrong.

    This is pretty much the main reason i quit BDO and yes i also played a Ranger/archer.
    This type of combat is NOT enjoyable for me,it is silly SPAM combat and not even remotely realistic movement.
    Combat animations are part of "graphics" and BDO completely ruins it and immersion big time.Not always of course but they certainly ruined this area badly.
    Oh and   you don't even have ammo,it is endless  arrow spam ,never loading,not a realistic archer design,just silliness.

    The game are indeed good looking unless you get the graphic bug like I got the last patch, It basicly makes the game somewhat ugly.
  • GaladournGaladourn Member RarePosts: 1,813
    The graphics look nice... that is, when you don't move. When you move, the textures flicker everywhere. And yes, I have a good GFX card that can handle the graphics, not stellar performance, but definitely acceptable (~30+ fps outdoors)
  • Panther2103Panther2103 Member EpicPosts: 5,732
    I think BDO is amazing looking but you are entitled to your opinion, even if it seems like it's just baiting people. I think in general almost every aspect of BDO looks good, the textures are crisp and it runs extremely well for how good it looks.

    Again, you can't use the "realistic" moniker when the game isn't trying to be realistic. Oh sure, it's obviously ok to dislike them but these games are never trying to be realistic. They are trying to be "over the top action packed" whatever.

    They are not trying to have realistic archery.

    You don't like the art style. There is a difference between graphics/graphics fidelity and art style/art assets and people need to realize those differences.

    Combat animations are part of art assets / animations they are not part of the graphics/graphics fidelity -.-. There is a difference between the two. Most people don't seem to grasp this basic concept. To extrapolate most people judge graphics based off art assets that they see and don't really seem to grasp that art assets aren't actually what the "graphics" of the game is. One can have a high level of graphics/fidelity without having an art style that people would consider high end "graphics" (Wildstar is a prime example here). The art assets make up some people idea of graphics, but that isn't really the case.

    Also MMORPGS for the most part did away with "ammo" because of WoW doing it. So almost every single mmorpg now has done away with ammo/stringing bows and the like because it is a "convenience" and doesn't cost the archer time/money. I can only think of a handful of indie mmorpgs that might have arrows at all. These games are not skyrim or the like where you might have arrows. If you want that you are going to need to find a more "realistic" (likely indie) mmorpg or go back to single player rpgs.

    The one thing BDO really has going for it is the graphics.  They are revolutionary for an MMO. 

    I still remember seeing my first video of the game years ago and how much it blew me away.

    I hate the texture pop-in, but honestly I like that they overshot what they could do with the graphics and pushed the envelope with textures. 

    Not just the graphics, but the art-direction is really superb.  The world is unique and absolutely beautiful.

    I hope future Devs build on the foundations BDO laid down when it comes to graphics.

    Game is basically unplayable for me for other reasons, but you can't knock it for graphics or what they attempted to pull off.
