Hey guys ! I'm a returning player. after dealing with some IRL situation I finally have time to pick an MMO again and i was wondering between a few favorites of mine that i was playing back in the days. Black Desert Online is one of them. I was a huge fan of the atmosphere. I was very hyped when it came up ~ Bought the amazing Conqueror pack and so far I never regret it. I made a lot of toons, Witch, valkyrie, kunoichi, tamer. In the end I played my valk up to level 58 about 80% into 59. and I had a good time, I was participating in really nice PvP content. it was an amazing time ! horse Tier 8, Fisher life skill was my jam ! But all that was ... almost 2 years ago. Now I'm looking at the actual content, videos, streaming and i see that the game evolved a lot as a 'sandbox' would. the average level is now 60+ to be somewhat decent at PvP. and I remember the game to be ... so grindy ... I spent dozens of hours at the sausan to reach 58. And ... to be honest. I don't mind Doing some grinding again, especially with friends. But i don't want to giveaway another Hundred of hours to just reach a higher level. As a person I'm past that and my gaming sessions are much shorter. 2hours at max sometimes less. Here's what I'm currently looking for : Some world-PvP actions maybe some castle everynow and then. A game where i can meet peoples and enjoy some Content wether it will be going out in the sea together, dueling. Maybe roleplay ! If that's still a thing ! I want... to know from your perspective of actual player of the game : Is this game, Still welcoming me open arms even if I'm late or will I have to fight through and struggle ! to reach to a level that is somewhat decent to enjoy the content ? Thanks for taking the time to read the post ~ and double thanks to all replies Wether they are positive or negative !
