Black Desert Online reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Many small Games, packaged in a large one would be probably the fastest Summary. It can be really fun, but also extremely frustrating, as you can "burn" hard-won experience€ funds within Minutes. If you are built close to the Water, you should not read on. For the, BDO will not bring a nice "endgame experience." -> The Combat System is fun because you have different Combos to Choose from and you have to adapt to the different Classes a little bit. The Only Pity is that the PvP is a little unbalanced in my Eyes. Whoever eats the Stun first is idr. The one who lost. After a While, however, you get used to it and learn how to deal with the respective Opponent. Ingame also has a Controller support System, with which some Classes can also be played in a usable way. For PvP, however, not really to use. -> Sandbox: Fishing, Sailing, Collecting, Horseback riding, Cooking, Alchemy or Trading? Everything available! Here everyone can decide for themselves what they want and play like this. -> Events/Patches: There are pretty much Always events active that are supposed to reward you in some Form or prepare fun. As far as patches are concerned, we are hanging Korea about 6 Months behind. However, much is adapted to the Western Style. Adjustments take place every Week for Server Maintenance! -> The Gear system is typically "Asia game" to upgrade basic Armor until you get Bossgear and can afford to upgrade that. Up To + 17 this goes quite well, from then on it is a Gamble and can really bring Frustration. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ -> RNG: 100%ig confirmed. Whether it's when The Armor is Upgraded or when you get rare Items. Since you can't actively trade with other Players and everything runs through the Auction House, sometimes very frustrating. But You can pre-order items and if you are a Patient, you get your Board of your Boss. -> The Community is mixed. Have already met some very nice and helpful Players here, but also many who only make their mark about the Game (unkind, hostile to Newcomers). Typical MMO stop. Since there are no German-speaking Servers, you should at least have a little English on it! But there are also some completely German-speaking Guilds. Just look at the Steamcommunity or on Facebook. -> from the Graphic point of view, it's ok. You can always do more, but it should be stable on as many Systems as possible. My Mid-range Gamingpc Has no Problems at all on high Settings. (i5-6600k OC/GTX 1060 OC) If you meet the Minimum Requirements, you might want to invest in a slightly better System before BDO, otherwise the Potential of the Game will go completely to the end. -> AFK IDLE: BDO is a Game that has the Function that the Process is pushed into the Background and the System is hardly burdened. Sounds weak for a Game, but it is a Mandatory Function for ambitious Players when the PC is running a lot anyway and you are "AFK." In Bdo you can use some Sandbox mechanics 100% AFK, which generates a Working EP and Money. -> Pay to Win? In my Eyes, a yes and a no. Anyone who thinks it's done at €10 has cut. Benefit Package ("Hidden subscription (~ 10€)") is mandatory for any active Player as it really brings Benefits. Costumes bring more or less strong Bonuses. Pets looten for one, so you can call them a Duty, but since you get some gifts again and again, ok. Everything else is Conveniences that are nice but not really required. I myself invested €120because I had bought Pets outright And wanted to have two Costumes later In the year. So for having about 400h active Game Time so ok. All in all, I am happy with the Game and I think I will play for a few more Hours. Real PvE Content would still be cool, but will probably be hard to realize. Wait To see what the Developers still have in terms of Ideas.
