    The new Shadow Arena looks amazing. Pearl Abyss is just too good. Cant wait to see more from Crimson Desert, Plan 8 and Dokev.

    it's a terrible unbalanced mess with dumbdown controls along with some quite annoying bugs (your options don't get saved and if you alt tab you lose full screen and have to manually set it back to full screen again ...).
    if you are used to bdo, it is the same visual shitfest on screen with unnecessary flashy effects and horrible lens flares
    the shop is greyed out in the beta but i'm fairly certain it will contain all the pay for convenience (read pay to win) you got used to in bdo.

    of course, mikeha our resident korean game apologist will love it no matter what but that's to be expected

    It's basically a more competitive BDO PvP. I might play it a little bit here and there but even then not much. Let's see how they handle the balance and cash shop.

    You have to first accept that the problem is not with mmos or the mmo genre. The problem is who you see when you look into the mirror. That is the first step to recovery.

    deflecting when you can't deny anything.
    i have no problem with proper mmos however i cannot stand unregulated virtual casinos and korean mmorpgs tend to all follow that principle of designing the cash shop first and the game around it after (and pandering to loli loving neckbeards).

    Given how PA did in balancing BDO, I question how far this game will go...
