Insane gameplay of Blade Master

45 posts in this topic




watching this, comes to my mind only one word WOW :dribble:

I know gameplay in B&S is hight dependent on ur ping, I saw a lot of streams, records and played each beta, but never previously seen something dynamic like that.
I would like to know what do I need ping for that, >20?;p
I wait/follow this game since 2007 and now each day it is more and more frustrating... :bowling:

I would recommend to watch all videos of that user if you want more:

Yea that was really nice, especially the BM boss. When I look at the kills with my Sin and 300 ping.... Im feeling to pethadic now :(

And he played really well, only made around 4 mistakes (bnlocking to late or uneccesary block), and thats just really really insane :P

Im so looking forward to the EU version, haha

I really like that, in general, success for players in this game will depend on not only their persistence, but also their skill.

Yeah after playing 45 stuff on my BM I've noticed ping is making a really huge difference. A lot of the content if I'm off in my timings I just get blown up. It's hard to anticipate things since the bosses aren't as simple as "every 5 seconds do x", like most other MMOs which is nice.

It will be really refreshing to play the game without lag though, might even get to use LB...

Watching this video makes me feel so inadequate lol. Really fun to watch.. he seems really skilled from what I can tell. Great block timings.

I have a hard time with blade master/assassin mobs especially, it was fun to watch how he dealt with the BM boss.

Perhaps someone could help me out here. I mean that 2nd video just went so damn fast I couldn't even tell what was going on. I noticed a few things.

1) It looks like the player is using a lifedrain on crit gem correct?

2) Per #1 I am assuming they are set-up on a max crit build?

3) How quick does the BMs parry cool-down? Seemed like they were parrying almost every hit

yes , at least he have 44 or 47% critical damage for make that dps..

for parry ,every time ,if you block at the correct time , the CD is 1 sec , so every hit can parry .

btw : that solo dungeon drops boepae/cloths/accs/weapon?

I'm pretty sure this game's art style and animations just make this look so much more amazing.

Only reason we can't do that would be cause we got much higher ping, we couldn't ever get the same number of skills off in the same time.

But actually it's just Parry > LB > spam RB > rinse repeat with other skills occasionally mixed in?

This is the reason the game should be p2p btw, f2p games tend to have half-assed servers, along with bad service support.

Hope they'll go all the way through with high quality servers for both NA and EU or we won't get to play like that. ):

Kinda sucks that BM is so ping dependant really, cause ping will determine how fast you can spam RB after parry or LB in draw stance.

I think the music band "Two steps from hell" is the right style of music for this game ^^ For example two songs from them - Archangel and Nero.

Why would they do this to just BM? After all, Steparu has a video doing the same thing with his destroyer, and with the earring combo I hear they can regain close to 35% of their life on a successful block. If that doesn't scream nerf me I dont know what else would.
