Good news! I rather have a korean publisher than any EU/NA publisher to ruin and carebearlize the game.

Total overview on publisher so far:
Korea: Daum
Russia: GameNet.ru
North America: Daum
Europe: Daum

Maybe an english release in 2015??

    Never herd of Daum but it would be a good change to have the Korean publishers support EU and NA as well. This would maybe reduce parity delays with respect to latest patches and the sorts as we see in other Asian games, atleast i hope it happens....

    Korean publishers are twice as more greedy

    Some of them develop mmos just for the purpose of cash shop and some of them work with gold sellers.  Some of them are the gold sellers lol.

    That is really good news.

    Hope that they dont feel the need to translate to french and german for EU so that EU and NA release will be almost same time.

    Unfortunatly I do not agree with this, a Korean publisher handling the west does not bode well imo, support will likely be subpar and the f2p models for Korea are normally more greedy than the west ones.

    Why would the support be subpar? Have u got any expirience on playing a korean game on a korean server?

  • PigozzPigozz Member UncommonPosts: 871

    Hell yeah!

    The fact that the publisher is the same as for korean version - the publishing will be much faster than with a different one. The more so if we add up that the translation is already about to be completed

    My Black Dester western release guess? Few months after the korean one which happens towards the end of 2014

    I think I actually spent way more time reading and theorycrafting about MMOs than playing them

    Yeah...because western publishers arent greedy bastards that are willing to mutilate franchises and principles of games for the vision of easy money..

    Well, at least they're not going with a whole bunch of different publishers who all enforce their own version of the game and don't communicate with each other.

    Having the same publisher for the original region and the West could be positive.

    Then again, I've never heard of these guys, so its wait and see as far as their policies go.

    Feel free to use my referral link for SW:TOR if you want to test out the game. You'll get some special unlocks!

    I think he meant having a korean company do the support for a game in NA or Europe.  Things like timezone differences for example will make this a bit harder.  

     

    Now, I personally will wait to judge in till I see the final product in front of me.9

    I wonder since its the Korean publisher that is taking the NA/EU, Will they have to subject themselves to the NA vision of decency? Like when an outfit is to revealing, the NA publisher would add more cloth to the outfit to coincide with the conventions of the NA crowd.

    Publishers don't add anything to a game, including the clothing.  They may ask the developers of BD to do so but they don't alter the code base themselves as a general rule.

    All a matter of what rating they want the game to receive.  If they don't mind a M+ then anything is the limit, but most publishers want a milder rating for MMO's in order to draw a wider audience.

    Thats news to me. Iv always saw it as the publisher would allow for a minimum of "fan service" i guess you would call it. Perhaps its tied to the rating system but then that coincides with my decency statement. If they want to get a better rating for a broader audience, then they have to cover up the gals and guys. But It is a Korean publisher this time. Perhaps they don't give a shit about ratings or the NA vision of decency.

    They'll have to adapt to EU/NA market anyway. Not like they have any choice. If they're more than slightly greedier than our average western editor, their project is dead over here.

    If it is a korean company, what about the phsyical servers and people handling those servers. Where will they be located?

    It is not that they are greedy,  it is that they think Americans are made of money, impulsive, have piles of  disposable income, are idiots, and have no restraint.

    Mostly they are correct.

     

    Play the same game on an asian server and you will generally pay pennies on the dollar for the same items and usually better service.

    Would have loved to see En Masse get this one. They are the only publishers  like. Daum?
  • ShaighShaigh Member EpicPosts: 2,104

    Daum bought OnNet back in 2011 and its OnNet that will handle publishing the game in USA and europe

    With BD, EU now has the same publisher as NA. I'm sick of EU always getting the short end of the stick when it comes to Korean titles. Shitty, terrible, just fawful EU publishers.

    En Masse is purely NA based. I would have loved them for EU too.
