    The lack of forum posts for this MMO on our guild forum is disturbing...
    Anyone even gonna try/play this?

    I played it back in Korean beta, while pretty, it was a shallow game. one of those " a mile wide, an inch deep" kind of deals. I hear it has improved, but got very little endgame. Almost everyone i know that plays asian mmo's have gravitated to Blade and Soul over this, but it might also be due to the fact they are mainly PvPer's.

    I can't seem to understand why people would play 'Blade and Soul'.
    Seems like Blade and Soul is just and over hyped game. (TERA anyone?)

    Back to 'Black Desert Online', it's true that there is little endgame, but what is endgame anyway? Raiding? PVP? Finish hard/long Quests? Crafting?

    So here is my reply for @Ryatzu

    I played it in the CBT 1 a bit. It is as @Merketh said a bit bland and shallow. The style is nice and it is broad. I got to lvl 10 or so and the lvl'ing isn't to hard, altough a bit grindy. I got lost in the setting up of my houses / farms etc to get my laborers going. Overall this game feels more suited for PvE then PvP.

    BnS is more suited for the pvp, but from what I know from that game is that the pvp is all done in arenas.

    Hi,

    I'm going to give this game a try; I've been looking for an MMO to play while waiting for Crowfall.
    In the closed beta, I only went to lvl 12 so I didn't see most of what the game has to offer. The crafting and housing system looks interesting and I think the end game will be focused on guild vs guild fighting over castles towns and resources.

    @Twido ! still alive I see :) Doubt anyone of MA is going for BDO unfortunately. It launches 5 days before the Division and we have more people interested in that then in BDO. You tried TD?

    Well this is gonna be akward.
    I pre-ordered, i bashed ubisoft.
    I refunded, i loved the division.

    release is 08/03 (you missed this weekends Open Beta for the game :( ) I think it would fit into your FPS style of thinking Twido! And yes, you can snipe in the game ;)

    here is a little video of me doing some rogue hunting...

    I am actually going to play BDO with some friends, if anyone in MA is please let me know what server you are rolling on. I am no that flexible with server selection because of the aforementioned friends but still.

    What I have seen of the game is actually the opposite of shallow, there is so much to do and most systems that are trivial in other games a very deep in BDO. Also, yes I sound like a fan boy, no PvP? You can fight people where-ever you want and the fighting over good mob-spawns is something I am looking forward too. Not to mention territory/node control and castle sieging... I read you can actually control the main city and get a cut of AH prices to your guild.

    sidenote, @Ryatzu cancelled his pre-order and replaced it for the Division. Not sure if @Twido is still going to buy it.
