Tera is by far the better of the three. But ofcourse this was a few years ago. Havnt followed its development. But why play Chinese now lol. Wait for English or translate patch KR. Like someone already said before, infrastructure for Westerns on CN servers lag like hell.
    How are these details? lol. It's just more generic statements.

    Would you mind telling us what's so bad about the mechanics? They don't look too bad from the videos I've seen but I guess that's something you have to experience for yourself.

    1) The prime time for the game to come out has long since passed. Sure, the playerbase will be big at launch but will plummet fairly past as weeks go by.

    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.

    Either way, it's all assumptions. I'm fairly certain it will do better than other AAA games though.

    The game feels amazing with my ping, nearly no delay on the skills.

    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 that will happen anytime soon for the chinese version (apart from the fact that open beta didn't start yet) but the game is already insanely popular.

    Considering it's still one of the most popular games in Korea (If not the most popular "MMORPG" over there)

    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.

    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1 101.226.113.50 上海
    电信2 14.17.14.100 深圳
    电信6 101.226.113.167
    网通1 123.126.47.182 北京
    网通2 61.135.187.186


    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.

    Some of them average around 300, some of them average around 700, I will most likely still give the game a go, just go mess around a bit till patch 2.1 in FF14.

    It might be because the game isn't up yet or is there an IP block?

    No ip block, it's probably grey because you don't own a closed beta acc.

    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.

    I hope you are joking......
    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.

    Oh ya, i forgot that one my bad, that was a miss on NCsofts side for sure.
    That should have been kept open for a few more years, if it really did as well as people said it did off course.
