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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
