Hey all , like the title states, we need more ways to get new players involved. I also think that we need some more gameplay footage to really get more people to look at the game. As of right now, there is hardly any footage. I think the devs should throw some landscape footage of the alpha 1 it there with some mob population and a scale to show how big the world really is. … [Read more...] about Discuss how to get more people engaged
For example, my guild is ancient and embraces “be excellent to each other” rather stringently, but even we have shifted our political discussions into a separate space in the last couple of years, not so much to avoid offending anyone as to avoid drowning our guild chit-chat in what are frankly depressing and fury-inducing links and issues. None of us can really stomach a constant stream of that, so splitting it off means it’s there when people can handle it and out of sight when people really just can’t. … [Read more...] about The Daily Grind: How do you and your guild handle political discussions inside MMOs?
My last point is regarding how content has been bundled together recently in large triple-whammies: When this happens, I really enjoy the buzz of having so much newness to enjoy all at once, but it does cause what I’ll dub micro-droughts in PvE content in general if one element manages to hold up the rest.

BLESS Online will be releasing on Steam this May, and many have wanted to know how it will vary from releases elsewhere (Korea, Japan, Russia). This devtalk primarily focuses on combat, the in-game item shop, party buffs to encourage group play, monsters, and combat pacing. The full blog can be found below, but we’ll go over a few of the highlights of it. The combat system received a complete overhaul, with the devs examining every class’ skills closely, and reconstructed how they function (composition and effects). Players will pick two stance skills out of six, and four general skills to pair with their class. Using these in combos during combat lead to extra effects. Players select a stance, use the starting skill, and then use a skill combo to create rhythmic combat. … [Read more...] about BLESS Online Discusses Differences of the Steam Release
