    possibly it could have something to do with where the talent is.  In western countries, the most talented devs may be involved in single player games, whereas in Korea, they are all in the MMO industry.

    western games still coming out with the same crap and ugly animation and hideous player models.. i hate how western mmo sites always focus on western mmo's esp on podcast  and completely ignore games liek this..

    this game is more innovative then anything out here, the next big thing is what? eso and it looks worser then 5 year old kroean games and the gameplay and animation and ability effects look like ass

I have a feeling that the combat in Black Desert will be cumbersome and awkward. 

    you never played a game more advance then point and click then? you cant chew gum and walk at the same time? how hard can it be, every mmo out now is super simple.. you want it to stay teh same? its getting closer to console level action, which is way more fun then boring point and click, unless console games are too advance for you to comprend moving forward by pressing forward, and who the f uses arrows to move in any game nowadays?

    Combat looks twitch based meaning lots of sorcerers and ranged. Sandbox to me does not necessarily mean great. The largest guild will dominate as in most games with an open format. Max guild membership, factions for untoward actions taken by players are two ways to limit guilds and allegiances. Alot of games are going Sandbox, PvP PK fests without any repercussions. Meaning you can do whatever and it doesn't affect you in a town. (which it should if you're killing people with a good standing with a town)


    It looks nice but I am concerned about content and longevity. Sandbox games don't always have alot of content and endgame is PvP...which for me gets old really fast. (I get my kicks from the story, adventure and exploration, not killing the same people over and over, dying, rinse, repeat)

    I like almost everything i see and hear from this guy,the only part i really feel is a mistake is any kind of CONTROL by larger guilds or any kind of pvp related to again over sized guilds basically controlling the game.

    I realize there is some positive to limiting houses but not the way they are doing it.I would like to know how they plan on keeping the other players interested if the large guilds control every house ,the rest of the population will not have the same equal opportunities.

    I guess my point is you should never start alienating players based on size of guild.I feel this will also create a race,leaving friends and small guilds with no chance what so ever to attain the same fun value.

    Yea sadly the asian style armor will kill it for me as well. Don't preferably like hooker boots and doo doo looking armor.
  • sirlysirly Member Posts: 1
    Does anyone know if this is going to be a full loot game?  
  • free2playfree2play Member UncommonPosts: 2,019
    It's too far out for me to get hyped over but as it gets closer to western release I can see my really getting amped up for this based on what is released in the East.

    Did you see the trailer? I mean where did you see asian style armor? It's western style, and far more medieval than most western games, like ESO, GW2 and etc. And there is no cowboys, aliens or strange fluffy things, nor naked teen characters or automatic guns. This game has soul, it has aesthetic despite modern way to make every MMO some kind of pop culture mish-mash.

    Last word I heard, there is a FFA zone and it is FFA. They were considering a Wushu style too but I think they backed out on that.

    Black Desert has GENDER LOCK.. ya if you wanna play a Male, only certain classes... and if you want to play a Female... no Warrior for you...  SOMEONE TRANSLATE "FUCKING DUMB" into Korean for me...
  • SirBalinSirBalin Member UncommonPosts: 1,300

    Had the chance to play Korean Alpha, is a blast.  Kind of feels like Teras combat, but more open world

    Based on video that's the current state and while there are 3 subtle face changes and some hair designs, you really are playing clone wars with the 4 cast members in the trailer. You can see an Archer or a witch a mile away and if 4 or 5 berserkers are standing at a quest NPC you can't tell them apart. While those four models are very well done, it just looks like something out of the twilight zone, having just those four in an otherwise elegant and rich game world.

    It may be just me, but nothing is really interesting to me in the MMO world at the moment. ESO is not cutting it at all. GW2...may be good but it's published by NCSoft, a company whose pockets I simply will not line with my hard earned money every again. SWTOR? No ten times over. 

    However, Black Desert I'm really leaning towards. My concern is story. Content. Will they have enough, will it be rich and as open as the world they are touting. That remains to be seen. The gender lock thing...not digging that. The sandbox concept...digging that. So I'm keeping my eye on this.

    The game looks very interesting in all aspects except for "action combat".  That's the term all of the MMOs have been using for the last 4 to 5 years.  All other things in the game have my interest except this puts me off some what.  It would be nice to see a very good game written that doesn't tout this term as one of their primary selling points.  The sandbox peaks my interest more so than other elements.

    I'm pretty sure the western market will screw this game up with their demands and reviews..... they always do.

    Well to start with, it is not even close to a sandbox design, just another Korean grinder with great graphics and a few new twists.
