    I don't play Bless, but for those that do I hope it continues to get better for you.

    On this thread I saw a few comments about open PVP and it being bad. While I am not huge into PVP, I am a fan of open PVP because it makes the world feel more alive. Yes I know there are gankers, but overall it adds some excitement.

    Everyone knocking open world pvp because Bless failed? Riiiiight... your IQ is showing..

    Open world PVP is amazing, it creates a sense of immersion you can't get in your typical care bear theme park MMO.

    Bless being a garbage game has little to do with open world pvp. We all knew Bless was going to fail, it failed twice already only the bored and the stupid actually bought into this early access crap.

    Because of Bless? Bless is just the latest flop in a long, almost universal line of flops for open world pvp spanning back over a decade. Once you get even one successful new hardcore pvp MMO in the modern age, then we can start talking about IQ.

    And frankly, you're objectively wrong. Nothing is less immersive than having one's roleplaying session be arbitrarily interrupted by "xxxNarutoXSasuke69xxx."

    When even Aeria runs away from a game, it should've been obvious this would flop harder than me in a deep pool. I give it a month or two at best before it goes F2P.

    That isn't true at all. Open PvP is great done correctly. Plenty of games have it and it works fine. In WoW it worked fine. In L2 it worked fine. In Aion it worked fine. Just because you don't like a specific feature, doesn't mean it isn't liked by others.

    Got to love all the haters on here. They had a massive amount of people join quickly so they added new servers now that the Hyde has died and the hard core pvp/pvers left due to it not being all that great the multitude of servers is not needed. Hell look at aion it has 3 servers. And it's still going strong. I think in a little bit if time this MMO will improve if not then there will be private servers eventually.



    You may be right.... I think it would help if they made it more of a PvE game rather than a PvP game though...... IMHO. I have a few friends that are care bears and won't buy or play any game that is PvP - centric.

    Black Desert has open world pvp and is a highly successful recently released mmo.

    BDO has open pvp once you hit a certain level I believe..... the care bears are safe until then.

    Same with Bless. Open world pvp does not begin until level 35 from what I understand. Really I can not remember the last game that had open world pvp from the start.

    If I go to "The Cheesecake factory and have a piece of cheesecake it's going to be "meh."

    If I go to Denny's and have a piece of their cheesecake it's going to be bad.

    If I go to the supermarket and buy one of the various frozen cheesecakes they are going to range from meh to bad.

    So they should learn and stop making cheesecake!

    Oh wait, I could just go to "Two Little Red Hens" or "Eileens" or Juniors in New York and actually have a good piece of cheesecake.


    If you are going to judge an open pvp game then pick a game that is considered the quintessential great pvp game.

    Open pvp is absolutely fine. In a game that can handle it.

    pvp works in a mmorpg does it not? yeah keep going that route,it's an intelligent move to make.

    Early access,2-3 weeks and already down to 2 servers..yikes.

    The best part and the part i need to make a point of?When Aeria games,a publisher i think very little of says your game is not good enough,you SHOULD listen.Instead of listening they figured,ok we don't need a publisher,we will publish it ourselves,umm yep good job.

    PVP?? lol


    Listening to this guy sound all excited for Bless then he talks about how he has been a Wow player for years and that Bless will be great because it has pvp,again a Wow player,strike 1,pvp strike 2,the type of gamer i have little respect for because he has no clue.
    Bottom line,i see this type of person a LOT in the media ,people that are making money off of games ,i don't trust ANYTHING they say.



    Ah shove it dude, pvp works just fine in a good mmo when implemented properly. There are plenty of snowflake mmos for you so keep to those. Don't even try to blame Bless' failure on pvp lol...

    BDO's open world pvp is 'successful' because of the karma system which makes it pointless and even a hinderance to people who partake in OW Pvp, so its like comparing apples to oranges.

    Sorry, but they originally launched the game on STEAM with 2 servers, 1 for NA and 1 for EU. If that doesn't tell you something about the game's popularity, then surely going from 6 servers down to 4 or 2 again in less than a month should.

    I enjoyed the game, a little bit. At least the PvE aspects. However, OWPvP games are and always have been EXTREMELY niche. Seems hardcore PvP enthusiasts toot the loudest horn, which proves what we knew all along... the minority is always the most vocal.

    I'm not sure why all the hate. They originally only planned on 3 NA servers and 2 EU at EA launch and that's what they initially came out with. But due to all the player generated hype, far more people bought the game than they had expected, so they opened up a few temporary servers to handle the influx. Most players knew it wouldn't last and now they're going to go down to what they had originally planned.



    Also remember the game is still in development, so it's expected at this stage of the game that you'd have less players. Not many players, myself included, enjoy games with expected bugs, imbalances, and lack of content. It's of course to be expected, but most will wait for official launch.



    So this is just status quo news I think. I know for those on the less populated servers it's going to be a welcome change.


    I couldn't imagine why all the hate on a game that has failed in every country and still launched with all the same bugs in NA.

    I am not comparing anything, 

    What I am saying is that Open World PVP is not a bad feature to have in a game. People think any game with Open World PVP will fail because it has Open World PVP. I will always disagree with that. Its all about how Open World PVP is done.  Black Desert is a true example of a recently released Open World PVP game thats successful regardless of how anybody believes why. 


    Black Desert's open world pvp is a success because it is a part of a really good game.

    The important thing here is the timeframe. Server merges are expected and are a natural part of any MMO life cycle. The problem here is that the Bless life cycle is playing on fast forward. It is not normal for server merges to happen this absurdly quickly after launch. 



    Exactly what this man said. All MMOs go through server merges eventually, but after only a few months of launching? That's not normal. Lineage 2 eventually merged servers but that was years later.

    I would give you a guest pass to SWOTR, but then I wouldn't be able to find a way to live with myself afterwards....

    As someone already pointed out to you, BDO is not really as OWPvP as you think. At first, it was level 45 and now it's level 50 that one is able to PvP. I'm sure you knew this though before claiming BDO as being truly an OWPvP game. Even Bless Online isn't truly an OWPvP game, because it isn't until level 30-35+ before you are forced into PvP zones to continue leveling. However, during my leveling experience, all I encountered were higher level players ganking me while I was questing. That pretty much sums up the extent of what OWPvP entails. People with higher level characters preying on those trying to enjoy the PvE aspects of the game.

    You want to know why they are consolidating the servers? Because anyone that got the game to enjoy the PvE aspects has left, or at least a majority of them. Which means the majority of people left playing are the ones who enjoy PvP and guess what, PvP players can't stand other PvP players because they present fair fights. Eventually, the weaker or less skilled PvPers will leave until the only ones left playing are card swiping whales and the 1% of elitists who are actually good at PvP.

    News Flash, if Bless was PVE only it would be considered even more dumpster juice than it is now.
