Blade&Soul is unique to me because of the Asian Theme, Amazing character customization, the big open world with stunning environments, and the action combat. I also like that can fly and run on water, though I still prefer mounts.

I do like the asian theme. Extensive character customization is something what I do love (3 breast sliders FTW! :D) And I do like details of environment.

Unfortunately I can say nothing about fight system. Definitly better than old tab-target... but tha is also not "no-target" so I need to play more for check it.

Well first, I love the fact that it's a Martial Arts MMORPG. I like the way it utilizes Qi Gong, in a respectable and progressive way. I like the character design as well. One thing that has me smiling, is the fact that it's more-so about skill than just gear. In games like Aion, you could catch an enemy (other faction) by suprise, burn your best attacks and outsmart them for the first 5 seconds. Then you'd see you only did 10-20% dmg to them, and while all of your skills are on CD, they can just 2 shot you and walk away, just because all of their "PVP Gear" is +10. Had nothing to do with their own skill. In B&S yes, gear plays a big roll (you're not gonna be beasting with low lvl weapons and bo-pae durrrrrr xD). But it relies more on the player's skill than their gear. You can't just go in and start mashing keys and win because your gear is better!

I have a few suggestions and Ideas for this game though, hopefully when they're all written down, I can send it to the developers. Blade & Soul is also the first MMORPG that I've been so supportive of. I want to see this game succeed with flying colors, I want to see it improve ten-fold with each major update. Yeah, this game might be a bit on the linear side now, but there is plenty of room for a new "wider" direction, once the first main story is complete.

One iffy thing I have about the game right now though, is that all of this content is currently for lvl 45. What will happen to all of this content when the level cap is raised? Will people skip over it, or will Team Bloodlust increase the mob's lvl to accommodate for the cap increase~ O.o

I think the biggest reason I'm so interested in BnS is that the graphics are just so amazing. The scenery, the characters, everything just looks so pretty! :dribble: Of course, the fact that you can learn to run across walls and glide around is pretty amazing to me, too. I mean, who DOESN'T want to be able to fly? I've really never played an mmo with such an in-depth combat system like Tera or BnS, so I don't know how I feel about the combat, but it definitely looks more interesting than button mashing!

The whole Aesthetic is just astonishing, Hyung Tae Kim is really such an inspiring artist, his clothing designs are gorgeous and the whole world looks and feels beautiful. The combat is also amazing and Qing Gong is such a wonderful mechanic that adds a whole new dimension to the game. :joss_stick:

Also FM weapons are really pretty. :misdoubt:

It reminded me of Demon's Souls, a colorful Demon's Souls. The next thing that grabbed me was the quality of the game, the graphics, the environments, the game's art, the classes.

Most mmorpgs have nice art but the games look and play badly. I still yet to see an mmorpg that warrants paying any money for. B&S is the only one that changed my mind.

One of the biggest reason that really got me into this game is the high level of character customization. I mean, it's almost impossible to run into a person who looks exactly like you, considering that there are so many different hairstyles, doboks, and weapons. The character customization is so high in this game, that you can make a character look totally identical to some celebrities in real world O:

For me it's mainly both the aesthetics of the game, and the combat system. But mostly it's just because I'm an mmo junky, can't live without them, I've tried many different mmos. This one does stand out! Can't wait for english version ^_^

The aesthetics and what we thought the gameplay was drew me and my friends in years ago, but once we found it it wasn't quite as innovative and unique as we thought a lot of us dropped off. I'm starting to drop off as well, especially if they go P2P. It's just not unique enough or engaging enough for me to justify a monthly payment. Yeah it's pretty, and some of the outfits look really nice, but the only race I really like is the Lyn. It'd be too much work to fix the anatomy on the other races, plus Lyn has all the classes I'm really interested in other than KFM. Being a KFM isn't enough of an incentive to tweak the anatomy to the extent that I'd have to.

Community would also be a pretty big key in if I stay or not, but that'll be something to be determined once it comes out.

It is the perfect MMO for me. The eastern mythological influences, the combat system, the enticing visuals, and the simple yet diverse races/classes. It's a ray of light & hope in the MMO market that I was gradually losing faith in.

I just love the whole game...why make it complicated?

The only thing that can ruin this game for me are stupid westernization changes that break games.

As simple as it is, there's no other MMORPG in the world that is alike Blade and Soul, ever. Blade and Soul is so unique and they accomplish things that other MMORPGS's creator couldn't complete or even think about it. There's more to why Blade and Soul is the game that I would stick to it for long and willing to pay for it, but of course, above a few is enough.

Pretty well this. I've been stuck with playing Tera and Final Fantasy XI lately and I've been anticipating Blade & Soul a lot because I need a game to make me dump Tera.

I don't like En Masse and how they censored Tera and I'd rather not give them my money. Blade & Soul has seemed in many ways like a prettier, better Tera. Something about Tera just rubs me the wrong way to En Masse's marketing and censorship of the game. To getting burned out on the same dungeons, and always needing more money for enchanting. And just the overall aesthetic and lore of Tera doesn't appeal to me as much as Blade & Soul. There are pretty spots, but it is pretty easy to forget considering.

Blade & Soul is just the right medicine for me right now. Like a beach vacation from the MMORPGs I've been looking at or trying.

Also, furthermore, really. If we're going to make frank statements like the person who said "boobs", which as a person who doesn't like boobs it isn't he reason for me at all. My reason, is how refreshingly Asian it is. I'm sick of how the game industry today with full of people complaining about androgyny, complaining about Japanese games, complaining about young looking characters, complaining about Asian culture in video games. When I was a teeanger, jRPGs were king. Now you've got people going on the internet and telling people they'd punch someone in the face if they found out they play jRPGs and get mostly likes instead of dislikes.

All of the RPGs people seem to be praising today are Western looking Western RPGs with Western aesthetic sensibilities. Skyrim, Guild Wars 2, Mass Effect 3, Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Even a lot of RPGs out of Asia like Tera, Dark Souls, and Dragon's Dogma are starting to look very Western. As are games out of Asia in general becoming Westernized.

Blade & Soul is refreshingly and unabashedly Asian. And is an MMORPG of that flavor out of Korea that wasn't designed cheaply. But as a strong "AAA" contender. I want to play a game that is both very Asian and very high quality. I want more games that look and feel like Blade & Soul. Games that a clear amount of time and money were put into. But are still cute, anime, and Asian.

I think that I like Blade & Soul in part because it allows me to use my high end graphics card on a game that looks and feels this Asian.

Boobs.

There, someone had to say it.

I did, just less bluntly :P

jRPG were popular, that is true. But if you see... this genre is in crisis from long time. It is hard to find rly good jRPG. Times where Xenosaga, Valkyria Profile, Star Ocean or FF dominated RPG marked are gone. Current jRPG are not even half good as old titles (IMO only Valkyria Chronicles keep high standards). Current Final Fantasy is crap compared to old games from this serie.

Also, I think you mess hate for single feature, element with hate for whole culture. I'm the one who hate "young looking characters" in games. But is it means I do not like jRPG, anime etc.? No, there is many examples what did not had loli-fest. Like FF7, Xenosaga, Valkyria Profile and Valkyria Chronicles. The same with ainme: Hellsing, Claymore, Berserker, Basilisk, Ikkitousen, Elfen Lied, One Piece etc. List is rly long. So if I, or anybody say "I hate this Elins or Lyn", "phedophile dream" etc. it does not means we do not like asian culture, just this single element.

I think I'm also quite excited to find out about the plot and lore in Blade and Soul, as it's supposed to be much more heavily centred around story in comparison to other MMOs right?

The most important feature of the j-RPG's are the strong story line, including some MMO's.

I just hope in B&So the storyline isn't to "linear" like Final fantasy X.

Or to scattered around like Final fantasy X-2 (hardly understood what to do, or need to here).

What drew me towards this game was simply the pictures i saw of the game.

Finally a asian inspired mmo with bright warm colors and ofc the fantasy aspect of running on water and walls and ofc flying :big_smile:

Like some others i also come from Tera and fell in love with the combat system Tera had, altho this is not completely the same it will be close enough .

And also i feel all these former mmo ex. wow rift and many other, the medival theme runs deep.

it is so grim and dark and sad, reminds me of dark autumn evenings in cold ass Norway!

I have no problem about P2P, i look at it as a way of supporting the game and keep it form going out of buisness :surrender:

i also pay for other intenet stuff i like ex. spotify, then why not a game.

i come from CoH from back in the days so character customization is a huge plus(in CoH every char could be unique)

and also what i missed in tera was a story between two factions so u chose your side and fought.

Looking forward to this also because i am a huge anime fan and i cant help feeling im in Naruto when i get to run on water :big_smile:

-Nattsu out.

Might not understand how I feel if I told you but i'll say this.

Blade & Soul to me is not just a game it's something iv been looking for a while now.

Where I live is.......not a happy place put it like that, house is TAN AND RED for crying out loud who makes there our TAN and RED?!?!, thanks Dad.

Living in a poor city like Maryland with no signs of life, dead tress, poor looking towns is not the best place to be, rather be in a beautiful place like Japan/Korea or....I don't know some place where I can finally find some peace and quite without worrying that I might die every 5 seconds from gun fire and go back outside again, If people see you with a Cat hat on walking down the street they would just look at you strange, house is dead, grass is dead, Dad chopped down all the beautiful tress we had, turned the yard into a nightmare, back yard is hell worse, don't get me started with inside the house....

Me im a real shy guy can't even look at someone without putting my head down, All I ever wanted was that big Cherry Blossom tree on that hill I could just sit under with my girl friend. And I can't get that and I never will cause no place like that exist you only find things like that in games, and well if you ever watch any of the .//Hack Anime NOT the rip off Sword ark or whatever it's called, then you'd now what im felling right now, all that Pain I have everyday from getting up to sleeping wondering when things will get better for me but it never dose, trapped in my room for.....god I don't even know how long iv been in here, 5 Years maybe? Only time I have fun is when Otakon comes.

Blade & Soul with all it's Beautiful scenery, Characters, Amazing Costumes and whatever else I can't think of now is everything I need in Real Life. in that game I.....I don't know it's just paradise for me, im not here for the story, pvp, or leveling im here cause I found OUTER HEAVEN.
