I stopped playing for just over a year. When they were breaking some of the basics with patches, and then giving the 'working as expected' BS it was game breaking for me. However, they have fixed all of that, and with the AFK level, RNG beating Caphras it is a MUCH better experience.
I have pulled back in a few friends, and my old guild is all starting to play again. Really enjoying the new areas, quests, and remastered mode looks so good.
Graphically this game is the best MMO going. The action system I still giggle about. So fun. Back on the BDO train. Best sandbox MMO going.
