So cheap I am going to try it...

DibdabsDibdabs Member RarePosts: 3,014
At under £5 on Steam for the game I'm going to try the game, if only to see if Korean games have improved at all over the years.  I still expect it to look like the offspring of a disco glitterball and a pinball machine, said lovechild then being shat through a rainbow at high speed before crash-landing, but you never know.  Hopefully they won't have underage-looking girls in lingerie and androgynous young men leaning forwards as they run, weapon trailing behind them... 

...but maybe my expectations are unfounded.  This time.  :D

    Went for the Explorer pack, since £22 is so cheap, but will have to download another day as I am playing another MMORPG on my day off.  Fingers crossed...  I really hope to like this game.

    Been looking at streams often on twitch, never pulled the trigger, this price has me even more curious. Not sure if i should just get the base game or one of the packages.

    You could've tried the 7-day trial.  https://www.blackdesertonline.com/tryforfree

    The style is also different than your typical asian game like BnS, Tera, or Aion.  If i had to make a comparison, i would say it's more similar to GW2, in terms of armor design.  There isn't any loli race similar to Elin or Lyn either, so you won't have to worry about that.  Some armor and outfits are scantily clad though, but it's really not that bad.  There's also the silly costumes, such as the fish one, but it's not overly annoying as in other games.

    Yep, but for the price of a decent takeout I couldn't grumble about paying for the game.  It's not a lot of money really.

    lmfao .....wrong again ................ good effort tho ..
  • DibdabsDibdabs Member RarePosts: 3,014
    I'll get around to playing it over the weekend maybe. I'll try a few class types out to see which one I like and go with that for a while.
  • GeekyGeeky Member UncommonPosts: 418
    I bought it also because it was so cheap.  But, honestly, I'm impressed.  It's a very nice game and seems to have A LOT of depth that I haven't even touched yet.  I'm opptimistic about my next few months now thanks to this game.

    Correct. That is clearly sodium chloride.

    BDO is fun so long as you enjoy PvP, everywhere you go. If you don't like that, I suggest you don't complete the quest to turn level 50.
    Outside of the popular grind zones, PvP is actually pretty damn rare. The occasional attack while you're traveling along some random road DOES happen, but those instances are the exception, not the rule. It's been a few weeks at this point since I was randomly attacked somewhere that wasn't a grinding area. The karma system does its job at making the game uninteresting for the average ganker.

    40 minutes in and all you fought was beetles? FPS issues varies by system did you try playing with the settings.. that's kind of normal for any game.

    A lot of games don't use floating numbers..

    It's too easy even with alot of button presses and on my striker all I literally did was use the one skill to get to 60 as I kept 1-2 hitting everything over and over again. Has some few good ideas in there such as node linking etc but the annoying market spam text constantly flashing in the middle of your screen is really annoying to me.

    When your away from the game try raising your str or breath it's usefull. I didn't afk fish for money because for some reason I kept getting 1mil mailed to me from fame fund and it eventually added up to me being able to afford any +15 I wanted. (20mil+ per item) I think it was bugged or working as intended I don't know. Anyways if you can put up with the annoying aspects of the game it's actually not too bad other than the extremely easy difficulty level.

    You can turn off the pop up notifications heh.

    The rest of your story doesn't make sense to me but whatever.

    I got dozens of awesome hours out of this game, in the end it can become a 2nd job. When I start feeling like I HAVE to login daily it no longer resembles a game to me.

    The blind love a lot of people have for this game is very odd to me.

    I gave it a good try ( got to level 39 )  and found it lacking in a lot of places. 

    1) Poor translations.
    2) Weak story.
    3) Weak quests WITH auto walking (snooze-fest).
    4) The voice acting was god awful.
    5) New player? No tutorials. Need to go to the forums to get a good idea on what you should be doing with it's trading system.
    6) PvP Everywhere at level 50 ( I guess this is a plus for some people ) .
    7) *important one* Jean Luc Pecard stated that a guy who had performance issues in this thread must have a shitty computer. That's a lie. This game is so poorly optimized, I'm not sure how anyone could defend it. Hell, I have an i7-7600 with a GTX 1080 and 16 GBs of 3000mhz ram and I can barely get 50-60 FPS. It also seems to be a known issue on their forums.


    Common guys I get fanboi-ism but this is just getting ridiculous. You need to have some standards.

    After exactly 12 restarts with the correct boxes unticked I could turn the notifications off and then the server restarted and they appeared again.
