    I hear this phrase plenty of times on this forum and I want to test the validity of it. Is it correct? What makes BDO a PVP game? Is it because there is PvP in BDO? Is that enough to make BDO a PVP game?

    BDO has fishing. Does that make it a fishing game?

    BDO has hunting. Does that make it a hunting game?

    BDO has horse racing. Does that make it a racing game?

    BDO has sailing. Does that make it a sailing game?

    BDO has x-thing Does that make it an x-thing game?

    Some say BDO is a PVE game. However, It doesn't cover the broad range that BDO happens to have under its belt. There is obviously a player versus player element involved.

    Some people simply agree that BDO is an MMORPG. As such, it has many aspects. People say that BDO is also a sandbox: you can choose how you want to progress.

    As a result, BDO is best classified as a sandbox MMORPG but is that correct? When you choose that parameter to describe BDO, you cover all the features within the game. There are a pelothra of features. So sandbox MMORPG seems the correct category.

    So why do people say BDO is a PVP game?

    BDO imo is an MMORPG with PVP being one of, if not the most focused part of the game.

    I wish it was the main part of the game but the balance is aweful and the dsync and lag is still horrible in combat honestly i still think the servers are bad they may be a step up from what we started with but they are still not good enough and do not keep up with the fast movements and animations of the game.

    They call it a pvp game because you could pvp anyone in most spots, you could make it a pvp game for yourself by doing just that.
    The bulk of the population probably only encounters PVP occasionaly (voluntary or not).

    It's neither. It's a game that can't make up it's mind because it fails at both.

    I didn't think about PVX.

    In a way, I PVX would be covered under MMORPG since it contains both pvp and pve.

    Ehhh... Mmorpg does sound inaccurate in my opinion though. Maybe I’m too old school, but I’m struggling to see how bdo is a real role playing game (Im not saying it isn’t though ...and this is clearly another debate).
    But I find it unrelated to pve and pvp since both can either be a pvp mmorpg or a pve mmorpg...

    Well, at that point, it's just what you prefer to call it. So far, several people seem to have different names for it:

    It's not an MMORPG.

    It's a grinder.

    Etc.

    I might not be able to satisfy all the different classifications to meet everyone's demand. So I just have to simplify it.

    Sorry, I couldn't add your description of BDO here.

    It really just is an RNG simulator ! Haha :p

    Pff, it’s fine but I think bdo perfectly fits the description of a PVX game, so this is my answer~

    BDO can't be classified as a pvp game, due simply because of horrible balance and optimization. If BDO was a pvp game, you wouldn't have the ability to have an advantage for uncapping fps. There wouldnt be a massive difference in gear. The servers/optimization wouldnt be so bad. These are issues that would have to be fixed to even start thinking of bdo as a primary pvp game. I mean come on how can it be fair if you get a DPS boost just because you can run 150+ fps. How can it be fair if you have classes that can out DPS others with a fraction of the gear and vice versa.

    At the same time the issue with BDO pve is simply the fact that group content is punished, by less silver per hr and xp. If it was a pve game every territory would have group grinding so at all levels of the game you would have group content that offers the same silver and xp as if you were grinding solo.

    BDO is more of a life simulator. With all of its afk/lifeskilling activities that offer almost as much or even more silver than grinding. So BDO needs to take a step back and really think about what they want to main, and buff those activities to make it the main focus of the game. If it wants to be PVE, need to buff all grinding at all levels and gear and massively boost group content that is worth while. If it wants to focus on PVP then it needs to balance all classes at all gear stages. As a true pvp game would focus on skill to make up the gap of gear, however thats not possible. Don't believe me have the best ninja in the game give them 500gs and have them fight a 600gs player the ninja will never win.

    Looks like I could edit the poll itself so I added PVX just because you are awesome.

    Where are all the people that think this game is a pvp game? I have seen posts where it has been claimed that most people play this game for the pvp but the response is indicating the opposite.

    Yes this is correct the ppl that back it as a pvp game are usually the small group that want to try and justify being toxic.
