I've been trying to figure a few things out before I spend time on games they have that aren't Age of Wushu and Google and posting to Reddit haven't turned up the answers I was looking for so I'm trying here.
I'm already aware of both games' reputations and I'm still looking into them so I'd appreciate avoiding "this game sucks" comment.
Okay, so two questions about two different games, both by them.
Here's what I had posted to Reddit:
1. Black Gold Online; is it essentially dead? The last update is from months ago and its forum is practically overrun with spam, the last legitimate post that I found being a few months old. I just can't find any information about it that's current and it's not exactly a small download.
2. Voyage Century Online vs Bounty Bay Online; I know that Snail Games and IGG both have sort of notorious pay-to-win reputations, or at least people have attempted to throw extremely determined pay-to-win arguments at both. I know what I am possibly getting into. I wanted to know which one might have a better population, which is better maintained (I can see several recent events for both but that doesn't tell me a whole lot), and which might feel the least pay-to-win, if they don't have identical cash shops. I've tried Googling this multiple times but all that keeps coming back is multiple threads about how yes, they are the same game.
Thanks in advance.
