    No wipes? Any IP blocks for EU, since this is supposed to be NA version? Also anyone played CBT that can tell pros and cons.

    Found this:
    Q: Will Black Gold Online only publish in the NA? Is there any country block?
    A: We will launch the English version of the game in North America as a start, not ruling out the possibility of launching in other countries. There will not be a country block or IP block for the North American version of Black Gold Online at initial release, but we will adjust accordingly to ensure smooth ping across the servers.

    For those who are trying the game out, here's the giveaway link for a bunch of cool, free items and bonuses. There's one on onrpg but my computer along with some others was having issues claiming a key.

    Got a thing for small girls with big guns, I see.

    But, yeah. I guess I'll give it a try. I feel like it's going to be one of those MMORPGs that try and sell itself on one or two big gimmicks alone and make the rest of itself just like any other grindy MMORPG (Aion, TERA, Dragon's Prophecy, etc.), but what the heck?

    Oh, and thanks for the link!

    x3 I had to try when the option was there.
    Anyway played it for 30mins and yeah, 300 ms from Europe. I'd advice waiting for a europe server unless you don't have problems with playing on Usa servers. But, what i played was kinda okay. Stuff i got in start was timed mounts, so im guessing it's cash shop with timed items. Which is B.S. How does that work? Does the clothes/mount just vanish into thin air? If i pay 5$ for a virtual mount i don't wanna keep paying for it. -.-

    Neither. Swordsman is in closed alpha, not beta - to me. Too many bugs. Bad interface, bad NPC interaction, terrible combat - questing is easy mode. The only thing it has going for itself is flashy skills. Like CABAL.

    How in the world can you make that kind of judgement when you didn't even play the game for a full hour? I mean heck, you don't even have access to 1/4th of the combat mechanics at that point.

    Like, that is full retard level logic

    Not sure why you're upset or being so insulting for that matter. It's not retarded logic. It's observation. When you see a game lacking in a way that resonates with other failed games, you develop a pattern of thinking. Think about it...you are talking about combat mechanics as if any of it would change my perspective.

    1.) The game is poorly optimized - it does not play well with high end systems.
    2.) The NPC to player interaction is poor - its just bubble chats and poor voice overs
    3.) Meditation function causes my CPU to freeze and this was tested on 3 different systems
    4.) Tutorial messages are stuck on-screen and often block critical parts of my screen I need to see
    5.) I can walk through walls in some areas
    6.) I pulled 10-15 mobs in an area and spammed pots to level - not the most efficient system to grinding
    7.) When I receive a quest, I can click the NPC's name on the top right and have it auto-walk. I'm not even playing the game at this point
    8.) Class descriptions from each NPC are poorly described to help players make a thoughtful decision on what class to take up
    9.) Servers are extremely laggy

    Should I go on? Or are you going to pounce around thread to thread throwing your weight around saying everyone has retarded logic? I'm waiting for your rebuttal so I can shut you down.

    I'm not mad and I'm not trying to insult you on a personal level. I'm pointing out that your claim was dumb as ****, which it is. I don't care about the PvE as it is a PvP centric game and Black Gold's PvE is completely forgetable in its own right for that matter.

    But judging the complexity and quality of a game's combat system, especially a pvp focused one, after an hour of play is beyond silly. Even moreso in a game like swordsman online where the mechanics are gated and introduced with level.

    I didn't mention PvP once. I don't even have to look at Swordsman for five minutes to say it'd be a decent product. Look at AION. World of Warcraft. Any other game that was p2p that went f2p and is probably doing better than it did before. Swordsman just lacks it. I can see it in every sense of the word. I'm telling you, bud - you can come in here and say my logic is dumb as **** and **** **** *** ** ***** * * * **** *** ** (notice I am somewhat making fun of you here) - it doesn't change the fact that especially since E3, this game just doesn't live up to the hype.

    I'm more wonder about if Gunslinger and Beastmaster released yet. The only 2 classes I'm remotely interested in.

    When I tried to make a character (before I DCed after spending an hour in it) I was making a beast master.

    Just played a bit and the game really needs to be optimized. Heck, I'm running 2x 660 TI's and I can't even put it on the highest setting without being on the 40fps and I'm also stuck on the 40fps on the lowest settings xD

    Seems like their is still some work to be done with this game, the servers are a little stressed, bu as for that its not a bad game, but not a great game.

    And Jokes, NeoMazoku you both are being a little silly, discussion is one thing even a debate, but its more of a domestic dispute, you should just hug it out. Mostly Jokes, you come off as entirely condescending, making your credibility already next to nothing based off your post count, and if you are just joining the board and hope to enjoy your stay here it would be best not to start off on that kind of footing. Just a tip, people remember names on this board, don't be "that" guy.

    http://www.twitch.tv/proudfurry I'm watching this streamer right now, very nice guy and game looks epic, downloading now. You can switch between target mode and free action combat, I'm hyped!

    This game is so unfinished and sloppy, (ui, combat) don't even bother... Open beta my ass, more like Dev-Alpha access. The cross-combat setting was actually very cool and reminded me of C9's combat for 2 seconds, though.
