  • Why is Elf-Fantasy the most popular?

    Tolkien most likely.

  • Black Desert censorship veers into the realm of the absurd

    The banned post was well written, and i can easily imagine that a lot of people who play BDO think the same way, at least in regards to the 'promise' that was made when BDO first released here.
    When i looked at the map in BDO yesterday evening, there was one consistent theme, from all the different node points that had been captured by various guilds, they had all changed their 'flag' to one that had a simple symbol, P2W in a red circle with a line through it, nobody in BDO wants the upcoming P2W changes, when you couple that with the protests on the forums, then Daum needs to really take notice, and rather concentrate on censorship, they should be considering ways in which a compromise can be reached.

    Same I know the feeling with Albion for example its one of the worst games I have ever backed, although I really doubt that Ashes OF Creation is going to be anywhere like that game, although you don't have to back anything and can just play the game when it releases if you like.

    Although if you are interested in backing I would at least back the $500 pack so you can get a life time subscription.

    https://www.ashesofcreation.com/projects/kickstarter-summer-upgrade-campaign/

    It's about time that World OF Warcraft got some competition with really being the only U.S MMO game out there or western game that I am aware of with active subscription numbers.

    http://imgur.com/a/ZPN82 Just showing I actually backed this game because I have some faith in this game given its more open about development and compared to previous projects I backed seems promising.

    Competition with WoW at this late a date? is kind of hillarious in itself, but paying out $500 up front, the equivalent of at least 5 years worth of paid subscriptions in pretty much any P2P MMO out there, for a game that isn't even finished, might never finish, and even if it does you might not even like in its finished state, represents a huge gamble. I really don't understand how you can be so against games that try to protect their own code, and yet you are so willing to gamble significant amounts of money on unfinished games, and games in an unclear state at that. :o

  • I hate to be the bearer of bad news

    The trading thing is a none issue, its an anti rmt measure and its effective, the auction house works as intended, and players attempting to dominate the market have to work for it, prices are reasonable, and players trying to manipulate those prices are very much out of luck, as for the being able to choose which pre-orders to fullfil, not a problem, i've used the pre-order function several times and honestly, while it can take time for some orders to be filled, i haven't really had problems with it, and while having to buy the cheapest item can be a PITB its easy to understand why it is done that way.
    That the gold farmers/sellers are gnashing their teeth in frustration, i am more than happy to bathe in their tears :p

    Have been playing BDO for quite a while now, i haven't really done any PVP in the game although my highest level character is almost level 58, i am in a 'life skilling' guild, we do a lot of guild activities, zero toxicity involved, although, i have noticed several times in the RP chat that people are still undecided there whether traps are gay, that is about as 'toxic' as it gets on the chat channels and even then its just a joke.
    I suspect the OP's problem is that in seeking to find a toxic environment, they no doubt either went to significant lengths to find it or manufactured it through provocation, the game does have PVP after all, this is a result that can just as easily be duplicated in any online game.
    BDO is a hugely popular game so rumours or suggestions of its 'demise' are without any kind of merit, though i suspect that the attitude to other players that the OP demonstrates might be a significant hurdle for them when interacting with players, to make a 'famous' starwars quote, when Luke asks what is in there, Yoda replies, only that which you take with you. :p
    Traps are gay is fine, but when they get into the talking about x rated material, like raping the President of the United states Wife, or asking girl who stated she is underage, and asking for nudes. That is not only toxic, it is a prison sentence.

    THe game is Dead to me, never made it anything other then that Senator Durbin.
    While i don't think an under age girl breaking the EULA by playing a game with an age rating is a good thing, i don't think she really deserves to be sent to prison for it :p
    I think.............. hes implying the people asking the girl for nudes .......not the girl
    Well, thats probably better than an underage girl asking for nudes, though it wouldn't be the first time, surprising how many under age girls in games turn out to be over 50 and male though :p

    Not me, too many red flags on this game, if its ever finished and its 'clean' then maybe, certainly not before, all things considered. :/

  • What We Would Like to See from Anthem - Michael Bitton - MMORPG.com

    Anthem, yeah, after all the latest shenanigans i would be surprised if its not just another rerun of Destiny 2, loot boxes, microtransactions and progression thats somehow bound up within those microtransactions, there is no way in hell i am buying into that game without knowing exactly how impacting the cash shop is going to be, so unless the game is amazingly good then i'll likely pass this one by. :/

  • Player's Choice 2017 - The Best Overall MMO - MMORPG.com

    While ignoring the whole Destiny 2 isn't an MMO at all, there is also the controversy surrounding Destiny 2 and Bungles monetisation fiascos the xp throttling, lack of content, lack of a real game even being there, which has resulted in over 70% of the playerbase not even continuing past the first month.
    There was a time i would have voted for Eve Online, and imo it is still a really good game, but for me BDO has become the main game and likely to continue to be given the lack of competition it faces.
    I am kind of surprised to see Destiny 2 even in the list though, Bungle/Activision are about as rubbish a developer these days as Bioware/EA. :p
