2) It's only a foreign version. By the time we see an English version BnS will "just another game in the market".
3) NCSoft or not, BnS has had a ton of roadblocks and other kind of problems.
Compared to tera it will be better...
Teras playerbase will be hurted ofc
Playing closed beta atm.
And infrastructure doesn't matter that much, if you are 10.000 miles away from the initial country, the best infrastructure won't help your ping, I'm surprised that I have such a good ping tho.
I'm from Germany btw.

I doubt it'll flop, along side the fact it's run by NCsoft. I don't think they'll release it anytime soon with Wildstar coming out.
That'd hurt both games playerbase, I assume this is why they haven't released it as of yet.

From los angeles ca to somewhere in china.
I'm going to play it.
If anyone wants to know his rather real ping to the game server itself (not some random speedtest location in china)
Pick one of these:
电信1 188.8.131.52 上海
电信2 184.108.40.206 深圳
网通1 220.127.116.11 北京
And then open cmd.exe and type: ping insert ip from above here
For the skeptics of success and release in America.
CN released so fast because they releasing the game, from my understanding, with its original content it was released with in Korea, making translations much faster for them.
The NA and EU versions are being (supposedly) delayed because they didn't want their playerbase to deal with the two end game bosses and get bored fast, so we will have more end game content - which is the first smart move NcSoft NA has done because the death of every over hyped MMO is the lack of end game content.
If all this is true, then rest assured, the game is in good hands and they're already paying attention to their demographic.
Rumor has it that BnS NA will see light by Feb or March of 2014.
i have downlaoded teh game all servers got GRAY status atm ? why i checked to chinese lang in Control panel
I'll definitely try the game but I doubt I will be playing it with ~400 ping. Unelss there is some good, free game booster to lower it.
Was hesistating between an Assassin and a Kung Fu Master but the Assassin seems a bit more gimmicky and fun to play sooo Assassin it is!
Too bad I can't make a female Gon Assassin though. Not a big fan of short races.

Because Lineage 1 was up for like 10 years.
Lineage 2 is still running strong after 10 years, Aion has a good userbase 5-6 years in.
Then there is guild wars 1, guild wars 2 (published by NCsoft) that are still doing pretty good.
If we grab korea, Blade and Soul is doing extreme well there, has been in the top 10 of most played MMO's since it launched, Aion is still doing really good as well, better then blade and soul to be exact.
Even Lineage 1 is boasting 1 million+ active subs in korea.
Sure they have closed down a bunch of games, but only 3 of those games were made by NCsoft themselves, which would be dungeon runners, exteel and the lineage 1 north american servers.
So I think what you meant to say is that NCsoft shuts down their crappy(minus lineage 1, which was quite awesome just not suitable for the western crowd due to insane grind) games quite fast, which most companies should be doing rather then keeping them "alive" with 10 people playing.
and was one of the most popular games ... was running strong but oh well i like NCsoft...
ohh nice i just had to verify my identity and i am in game ! :P
and again ... once i get into game it says something in chinese and 100 and idk what that means and i get kicked out of game
