But GW2 is B2P and has a cash shop too.

 

Edit: And successful.

It's actually 4 days. Also, you should probably check out this post before jumping onto the pay to win bandwagon. www.overclock.net/t/1589811/daum-games-black-desert-online-releases-march-3/10#post_24853626

 

You already have to pay $30 to play the game fyi.

I read through the posts and looked over the official game site briefly..
Is this a subscription game or is this like GW2 with the pay for the base then its all free unless you want to go into the cash shop?
Or did they take the ESO approach.. Base game and sub if you want for better gaming experience wink.gif

Guild Wars 2 was B2P.

B2P is an excellent model, Guild Wars 2 was extremely successful by going the same route as the original game by using the B2P model instead of F2P or P2W.

B2P MMO communities have a quality feel like how was Guild Wars 2 compared to F2P MMOs, you also get less cheaters and trolls.

Now it's kind of F2P, but with limitations until you buy Heart of Thorns IIRC.

Ok so I found out that you can't even play as a loli in this game, not very interested anymore! Oh well.

B2P/P2P communities indeed have an interesting feel to them, it didn't save Phantasy Star Universe though. Also, being someone who usually doesn't get offended by what people do in online games, I wouldn't rate 'walled garden' as an important feature for myself. But that's just me.

Sorry, that's what I should have said earlier. With the restrictions and the now associated lock on content without purchase (HoT), it may as well be considered B2P. 

 

I do agree that a MMO that's B2P definitely has a better quality to the community though.

Blade and Soul may be more up your valley. 

 

Granted if you really wanted to make a younger looking character, you could just make them as short as possible and make their faces younger. I really don't see the appeal in that, but an RPG is an RPG.

Blade and Soul was fun for the first character to 45, indeed! Really nice character creation, too. At the end of the day, it's not exactly groundbreaking of a game, though very well executed.

I find the sliders really limiting in Black Desert Online, they do barely anything on the height department.

This game isn't related to Blade and Soul or TERA. Those universes are related to that one universe. I find loli stuff annoying. This game is supposed to be more realistic with a fantasy element to it, loli characters do not fit.

Of course they aren't. Blade and Soul and TERA are both entirely unrelated, as well. They also follow distinctively different artisitc directions. They are not related to the same universe as far as I am aware, either.

It doesn't look particularly realistic to me, though more realistic than other games.

I'd disagree on this one, on the basis that visual realism is not a criteria for not having cute loli witches (If you ever read the manga berserk, you'd know how well it fits in fact!). Also on the basis that the game is quite idealistic on body propotions and color palette, hence it's not even beginning to look realistic.

I think the game is made around outfits for women with 90-60-90 measurements, it's actually impossible to give girls a nice belly in this game.

It's a fair design choice, reduces workload and creates a setting that is appealing to some people more than others, which is perfectly fine. Just not sure why realism needs to be the excuse for lack of options. Artistic direction, on the other hand, is a fair reason for lack of options.

Black Desert Online isn't related to manga. It's supposed to be a cultural era game with some mysticism like necromancy. I've played the Korean version.

Neither are TERA or BnS. But yeah it's good to keep in mind that manga is not relevant to most MMOs. Probably. Never really crossed my mind that they'd be, to be honest.

Good thing we aren't talking about manga, but about korean MMOs.

edit: Also, make that cultural era game with western witch hats and western beauty ideal for women. It's a solid setting, not very realistic but I like the overall look. Just unlucky they didn't have the budget for lolis or fat chicks.
