PvP Heavy While the PvE offering is deep and caters to a wide variety of players, Black Desert Online is ultimately a PvP game in nature. The meta or end-game is all about conflicts, and there are several gameplay systems that promotes Guild vs. Guild warfare out on the landscape. These include large scale naval warfare and node wars, where guilds can fight for ownership of lands which they can then tax for profit. These are amazing to be a part of and it’s easy to get captivated by all the action as you watch hundreds of players battling it out for supremacy. … [Read more...] about Black Desert Online Review 2018: Is BDO Worth Playing?
Systematic review vs meta analysis
(This part only applies to the KR version because I'm not sure how the NA versions will be.) Now let's talk about whales, if you've got a six figure salary and have a lot of money, you might enjoy YOLO'ing in Black Desert it's a game where you can actually feel godly given you're all max out in enchantments and in favor with the RNG gods. Which is extremely hard by the way, for your wallet or purse. I haven't played Blade & Soul in awhile, but if they go by the Korean version then upgrading evolving or enchanting should be the same for all players and no RNG involve. You just had to farm a lot more compared to the Chinese version, but upgrading was 100%. Though there is a purification system on weapon evolving where your weapon can't go further unless purified, but it's not as serious as BDO. Upgrading should be the least of your worries for now. It's a lot less troublesome to upgrade gear in Blade & Soul compared to Black Desert for those looking to play game without a heavy … [Read more...] about STEPARU News, Reviews, Previews & Information for Foreign Games Black Desert VS Blade & Soul 2016 Special
Rumors say that the developers are planning on adding other PvP modes such as 1vs1 and 10vs10 in addition to the already implemented 5vs5 feature. PvP wasn't really that popular during this test, so it would be nice if players could queue up for all three at once. As I mentioned earlier, I am a big fan of large scale PvP, so it would be neat if they implemented a 25vs25 or even 50vs50 battlegrounds with certain objectives. However, getting that many players in one match is going to be quite challenging, especially with no rewards or EXP earned from PvP. … [Read more...] about STEPARU News, Reviews, Previews & Information for Foreign Games Tree of Savior Online PvP Review and First Impressions

The 1st Closed Beta for Tree of Savior Online was awesome, despite having crazy login issues during the first few days of testing. Oddly enough, a lot of players from the beta was bunny hopping all over the place. It's not an MMORPG if you can't jump, right? I hope they don't make any drastic changes to jump. I ended up playing throughout the whole beta non-stop. I'd definitely give the 2nd or international beta another try without a question. One the biggest complaints from all of my followers and viewers is that the bosses are very easy to kill. As for me, I would like to see more community or social features for the game, something along the lines of dungeons or raids. Embedding text in crafted items was nice. Here is a cookie shield baked with love! Anyhow, thanks for reading and following me on one of my many gaming adventures, I hope you'll come back for the next one! … [Read more...] about STEPARU News, Reviews, Previews & Information for Foreign Games Tree of Savior Online Closed Beta Review in Progress Part 3 Finale
