    Is this just some Beta test for another product you plan to strip out of the game after you get all the data & feedback you need? I don't want to get invested in content you plan on axe'ing just to repackage and monetize in another way like you did with Shadow Arena. Can we gat any assurances that's not what your doing again?

    Call me skeptical but this is what happens when you set a precedent.

    I shiver and want to scan Pearl Shop in search of "Speed up queue" token but can't find it as I wait in queue :(

    PA took tradition of "re-use" too literally.

    Just because YOU don't buy pearls, you can keep freeloading.

    But seeing how the point of this like Shadow Arena is to sell Kam Blessings; my question is both fair and legitimate.

    Why would I want to long in to play--

    when you can't play the game while in queue?

    Just stay logged off. You're getting the same amount of action.

    Eh, this Altar of blood is same as Savage rift; would be fun, but no one will do it because of the crap rewards (dont even mention the armor boxes with their minuscule drop chance). Not to mention the costs, as you need potions, elixirs and cron buffs, you hardly get those price back. Dead on arrival.

    Also, bugged like hell, teleporting and invulnerable mobs, unable to select later stages despite completing them before.

    If those rewards actually dropped it would be pretty awesome. But this is Black Anthem Online... Soooo you're probably right. Sad though it looks cool.

    Why does it matter for you? This game have like 2 years remaining before getting axed too, so at this point it ain't really matter imo...

    I've given up on the developers making interesting PVE content. They need to start making dungeons with objectives/fight mechanics, or else we're just stuck with brain dead trash mobs.

    The developers at Pearl Abyss specialize in game development tools not game design. Nor do they play them. That means you can expect flashy animations and graphics, but not much in the way of old school content.

    Well, maybe the altar of blood is not good enough to replace the grind, (which is what I thought) but you can still have fun with friends, I think it's not bad if you play it for that purpose, but who knows, maybe they'll do certain changes in the future.

    Randomizing and improving the Elites in open world could have that effect. That's actually something PA is trying, but I highly doubt they will get it right. Simply adding "Rift style bosses" to group hunting areas would be a good start. They are trying some melee/magic/range meta version.

    Yup, the only chance this place has of being any good is if you farm it with people you know that are 600GS+ and dont need any buffs to do it.

    And maybe not even then.
