Blade and Soul NA Impressions

So in short you don’t like PvE because it lacks the western Tank/Healer classes? That’s stupid and narrow minded of you. The game is based on how well you play a class, timing and skill point distribution. Unlike the western games where you beg people to be a tank to soak damage or healer to push a button and get blamed or flamed, this game lets you be yourself. You won’t see a class like Warlock, Force Master, Assassin or Summoner tank so for that you need a Blade Master, Kung-fu Master or Destroyer. So despite what you might say this game has an intelligent design with ocassional hick-ups, but its a breath of fresh air from everything that poisoned the MMO market all these years.

I thought it was hilarious, myself. Such an extreme exaggeration, but very true. Personally, except for Age of Conan, I try to stay away from the games with all the tits and asses and skimpy, non-realistic armors. I find them immature. And as far as AoC goes, it is Conan and anyone who has read even ONE book, knows that is just the world the game is set in. And it is not just female characters running around with bare chests and almost no other clothing on either. I saw probably as many bare chested, scantily clad male player characters (and n\NPC’s) in that game as females,w hich I actually found to be refreshing in comparison.

while i agree that guilty gear is dope as fuck, street fighter is the standard for Japanese fighters. guilty gear is in the anime/ air-dasher genre. know your history before you start spitting nonsense homie.

You are litterally the cancer of the internet. I hate people like you. All you do is comment stupid shit on videos, waiting to pick a fight with people. Too afraid to do anything in real life. Someone really needs to beat the shit out of you. Calling someone and illiterate fuck, for starting a discussion. I fucking pity you. Hope you will make some serious changes in your life. Rant over. Have a nice life.

Actually I prefer games that reject “holy trinity” in favor of controlled chaos mechanic. This is not that makes game bad, but it is just approach to a combat. Some might argue “but then there is no role for me in dungeon” which is bluntly stupid claim – if group of friends actually play together they can pick whatever class they want, classes that they feel more comfortable and feel free from restrictions of “holy trinity”. Best runs in dungeons I had in GW2 where I was Ele there with 4 other Eles and everyone were claiming “it will be a deathfest” actually turned into best dungeon runs I had.

Cloud Sadly the game world is small zones, but there are lots of them. If you dislike zoning in (even though the loading screens are fairly fast when switching “small zones”) then you probably will get by. I personally hate the lack of sandbox feel to the game, but the combat more than makes up for it. This game will never be my “main” game purely for the fact that it lacks the sandbox element, but it will always be a game I can come and play for a few hours every now and then doing PvP.

You did say in your video “No trinity” = Balls. Then you also say even Gw2 is having a trinity (not really sure why but whatever) .. Having no trinity is probably one of the best ideas, and the only people I see that could dislike this way of doing things, are the small % of people that actually liked to play as a healer or as a tank.

Queue times shorted for those who like to play DPS, challenge also increased for healers and DPS chars .. as a healer you’re no longer doing an entire duegon / raid only looking at your team’s health bar ..

It’s not for everyone but it isn´t at all a reason to blame a game .. brings some ballance disadvantages like how easy the game can become a zerg game when all you need to do is simply build zerg stats and run the duegon in 5 minutes. But that’s other problem .. definately better than being on a endless queuing for a duegon as a DPS or having the most boring time playing as a healer class.

GW2 was alright when it came out, but it had no endgame and most of the core mechanics were flawed. In my opinion the best aspect of the game was the questing as you level up and jumping puzzles. Then again I haven’t played it in over 2 years, so I can’t really speak for the current version.

This is coming from someone who played from day one as well. The new expansion in particular is the DEFINITION of cluster fuck. I dropped over 100 bucks on that expansion to support the devs. Logged in with the new maps and couldn’t stay logged in for more than 30 mins at a time, the game just made no sense anymore. Every once in a while I’ll log in only to log off after 5 or so minutes. The game has turned into a messed up grindfest.
