    mass effect trilogy took 1h to decrypt on the release date, and I wanted to stream it but got so late in the game that it wasn't worth it (and I even had to take 1/2h to have the resolution not warped to hell)
    many people playing from others launcher than steam could play even BEFORE the release date

    It happens fairly often for me, though usually you don't notice it since it's fairly brief or it's passively happening in the background. It's like the ESO launching downloading a 100mb update and then patching around 1.5GB worth of files before moving on to download the next chunk of the patch.

    Servers seem to be coming up. Looking at the little class introduction animations in character select...man, Korean MMO's have so much fuckin style and I love it. Great animations, great variety in scenes, FUCKIN TRAINS AND BACKFLIPPING OFF HORSES AND SHIT FUCK YEAH.

    This is the fuckin bar, western developers. Fuckin learn to add some sexy style and flair to your fuckin boring ass MMO's!

    Note: This is purely a commentary on the cool class intro animations.

    It will come back on after a little bit. Still a pretty shitty setup how ever they have it run for making that check.

    I watched a tier list video and the guy included classes not available in NA and one of them used a spear. Man that one looked dope, I might main that when it comes to the west. On the other hand, the UI and the font they use for text looks so cheap and unprofessional.

    Smilegate said in an interview that we could expect 7 new classes/the 7 missing within 2 months, but no later than 3.
    So we might see them fairly soon.

    But seriously, dont delve in to tier lists when it comes to classes in this game, they are fairly balanced and stacking one class because some tier list said it's good means you miss out on a lot of shit and buffs/debuffs that would give a higher total group damage.

    Tried it out, couldn't stomach finishing the prologue, the combat was alright but literally everything else feels ripped out of your typical p2w mobile rpg down to the shop icon with a red dot in the corner.

    Genuinely don't get it. Played it for 2 and a half hours and found nothing special about it. It wasn't bad or anything, but it feels like a 5 year old mobile game... I just don't understand the hype.

  15. #675
    So, after playing for ~40 hours...

    Leveling is just so god damn awful:

    2.5D world. It's literally a series of tubes. And it feels like you're squeezed through that tube. Going from quest to quest is like going through a corridor. 3D world like in WoW makes you feel like you're traveling somewhere, it's such a small thing - being able to get to quest from any angle instead of sliding one tube - but it's huge. Quests are linear AF too. They appear one by one. WTF. After rising tons of alts on WoW through the years - I don't mind questing. But on Lost Ark - no way I'm leveling another character. No fucking way.

    Pacing. Pacing is fuuuuuuucked. Royally fucked. You start at level 10 with 6 abilities - what? Then you get into progressing - clear an area, clear a dungeon, get some skill points, get new gear. Then you hit level 50 in that China continent and game just grinds to a halt. You stop progressing - no new skill points, no gear, all you can do is take one quest after another going through a tube. This was the point when I wanted to quit. And then, you complete 5 quests in Vern - boom everything unlocks at once. Tons and tons of shit unlocks all at once. Pacing is fucked.

    ---

    Islands. They are fun. Little out of place experiences. Love them. Just went to a Reverly Row island, completed Una's task there to hand out cocktails, co-op event to dance started. Had a great time. Music was nice too.

    PvP. Oh my god. Oh my god. This is what will keep me playing. It's so much fun. Diablo 3 could have been this if Blizzard was competent. Also, don't believe fanboy lies about "lost ark is not p2w, pvp is normalized" - yeah in the open world it's not normalized. At all. Prepare to get screwed later in game when you will want to complete some quests.

    Dungeons - they are fun. It's because it's fun to pulverize tons of mobs with over the top looking skills.

    Casual content - there's so much of it. I will be collecting shit for years between PvP matches.

    Design - oh it's Korean. Smilegate remind me of another Korean company - Hyundai. Like, Hyundais have nothing individual. No design language. They just steal some bits of various other cars and try to make it work. Same with Smilegate - they even added Warhammer marines. Lost Ark is like Hyundai i30n - cheap soulless mash of stolen ideas, but does put a smile on my face.

    ---

    Overall - if players won't quit during fucked up leveling experience, they will most likely stay, because there's stuff for a lot of different people, and way more to come.

    I played Hunter in WoW and Bard in FF14 (until recently), I'm definitely not a metaslave, but I'm still curious about what's desired in the meta. I went with Sharpshooter anyways, because as you can probably guess from the classes I play in other MMOs, I really like archers.

    I've made characters for Artillerist, Sorceress, Shadowhunter, Gunlancer and Wardancer. Still not sure which I like more and want to "main"

    My advice, go on youtube and look for vid's on how each one plays using their class engravings at level 50. Each class has 2 class specific engravings that can change up the playstyle quite a bit, and then save any class specific engraving bags you pick up until you are sure what you want to main.

    Ok. I've watch overviews of each of them, but not specific builds. I'll do that. Thanks.

    Christ, queue of 5k, and 10 minutes it's only gone down by 200...

    People that paid should get priority queuing over the players playing for free tbh. :|

    Loving the Artillerist, just they require things to stay still.
