    Conan Exiles & FFXIV, IMO The only 2 really getting it right. BDO is good as well.

    Literally....you might be the one person who thinks WoW was the MMO of the year with that shit-show BfA.

    I feel a slight tinge of unease when people place aggressively P2W games on such a high pedestal.

    Literally...it s more this site that thinks that. My guild is growing lol, BFA is actually a lot of fun. For a 14 year old game it s holding it s own rather well. I guess that literally makes 2 hey.

    BDO Continued :

    Forgot to add Housing to the post. There is something about traveling on an adventure and having a perminant house to come back to. Not just a place that I can put couches and tables, but actual usable utensils and even a storage container to do processing in the house.

    A lot of developers can learn a lot from BDO's housing, top notch implementation.

    It's the epitome of being taken advantage over and over again meanwhile the same players are singing their praises about how the game is not P2W, yet they are spending more money on BDO than any other game period 

    Unreal 


    I bought the mid level pack and that all I've bought. I've gotten 4 free pets, over 1 billion in free silver through events and one maid and one butler free . I personally have never seen a game give away so much "useful" items in my 20 years in the genre.

    Most of your comments were not relevant to the game simply because they are subjective, much like my OP opinion.  YOu should add "For me the game is" , I've played way grindier games, and every single mmo in the genre  is a grind. That is why BDO is the last game I will ever play that has levels.

    Loved legion the best of any. Loved WoD...

    ESO has the worst animations
    Those few words explain why I agree with very little of what you said... except WotLK.

    If you like BDO's animations, but not ESO's, there's a problem somewhere I think... possibly of perception.
    You got to be kidding. ESO  bended leg waste swivel, vs fully animated body parts ... ESO is pretty stiff.

    I'll join the "nothing" crowd.  This year the longest I played a game was GW2 for like a month.  Nothing else has been even remotely interesting, and even then I can't give a vote to GW2 considering I'm not playing it.
  • WizardryWizardry Member EpicPosts: 15,223
    IDK about BDO housing,something i never got into,quit the game before that point.If it is done anything like the rest of the game,then likely terribly done.

    Then again Wow doesn't even have housing and it has the most players,so why exactly are people playing ROLE playing games if some of the role playing content does not even exist?

    as to mmorpg of THIS year 2018,idk i quit playing all of them because they are just half assed game designs.So i would be lying if i said i know who is or was doing it the best in 2018 because i really don't know.

    I only play FFXi on a private server,it best suited for me at this point whiel i wait for some great mmorpg to arrive out of nowhere.

    I very honestly feel i will not be alive to see the day a new AAA,really well done mmorpg comes out.I do happen to know what can be done by developers,i am not expecting things that are impossible to do.There is NOTHING incoming for 2019 either.

    So this is likely why we see soooo many mobas and arpg's and BR's and survival games,all the lowest denominator games,the cheapest and easiest to design because developers are afraid to get their hands dirty on an aggressive robust mmorpg.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    I agree on that part. BDO as one of the best housing/crafting system ever.

    Well if it's mmo, not mmorpg, and just for this year, maybe Fortnite? Seems to be the most popular. But I can't personally vouch for that.
    Not a MMORPG or a MMO.

    Its weird but in 2018 I haven't spent one second playing mmorpg, mmo's or online multiplayers games.

    I'd say FFXIV.
    It does most things right and I do enjoy every new expansion better than the last one. If an old mmo is supposed to earn the best mmorpg of the year, in my books, it needs to release a good expansion that year.

    BDO on the other hand, its going downhill.
    I don't think is p2w either but it has some major flaws.

    It released with the sandbox mindset but it turned into a generic mmo with some sandbox on the side.
    They rarely release any life skills, its all centred around more pve content (classes, grind zones, nothing more).
    The life skills they have are pretty much mobile games you can set on auto. The new zones are generic and don't have the "life" older ones had (First zone and Valencia), they clearly lowered the budget on that.

    The innovative/amazing character creation is lacking. Not even close to the most amazing character creator.
    You got a billion sliders but they hardly change anything and if they do, they usually make your character look bad so you should slide them back.
    No one ever mentioned that you have 10 hairstyles, 5 tattoos and the sliders will barely make you any different than the rest.

    Aion, B&S, ESO and even FFXIV character creator is better than BDO. At least I can look different from the guy starting at the same time with me on the same class. Not like his lost relative.

    Despite the rage it often triggers in me, for me it's BDO for now as well.
    Don't get me wrong though. The moment something without all the P2W bullshit releases, I'm dropping it. It has a lot of good things going for it, but it also has a lot of absolutely awful things going against it, most of them brought up by Kano earlier.

    It says a lot about the state of the genre too. How little new there actually is that's worth playing. :(
