    I keep walking around in BDO thinking about those I played with and everything that happened. I feel like I'm always searching for someone or something...

    It's long been a run

    I've actually reached a state of solid contentment in BDO. My gear's pretty good. I'm 62. I've got pretty much everything I could want. All the RPers are dead or in hiding.

    Things are very comfy for me now. I just got some farms and I'm trying out farming now.

    62 was a big weight off my shoulders. Now I don't feel obligated to do anything in BDO except slowly accumulate money and slam PEN with crons every time I get 1.2bil

    Why didn't you bold "multiplayer" part :)?
    Maybe because it's doesn't exist in BDO besides node wars once a week.
    All the things you mentioned are unplayable because horribly coded engine and potato servers. Badly made in general.
    And what does "3000+ people on one map " means? A zone? A channel? Pretty sure 3000 people can't farm at the same time in Valencia even across all the channels. 5 people at each location and people already fight for rotations.
    3000 people per channel? Nobody knows what is considered "full" but I can tell that if 3000 people decide to do something more than afk lifeskiling then channel servers are going to have a bad time.

    BDO restricts player intereactions. That's not multiplayer.
    But you can dream abou how BDO is next-gen MMO and how it has changed the future of MMOs. Reality is the only MMO that has changed anything for better in past 6-7 years is GW2.

    I can grind 24/7 in path of exile in a party, and still have player interactions and player driven economy.

    And btw, BDO has costed 1 million to make.
    Companies in EU/NA don't make MMOs because they cost a lot of money. 1 million is nothing, even singleplayer games by small indie companies cost more. So try to figure out what has cut the cost to 1 million :)

    its your choice if you dont socialising with people outside of Node war. personnaly i do alot of party think like whale/khalk, boss, Guild quest, Gyfin even Duo grinding on arsha.

    not my fault if you are a Asocial.

    you clearly never played a mass pvp mmorpg before for say that BDO is horribly coded. you are just dishonest and every word of you its just venom salt.
    must stop having super high standards on mass content.
    on doac no one complained of having to watch the ground to do their RvR. It's the technical limits of today. points. It's the technical limits of today. points. It's not because of bad coding. it is the hardware of today that is still not enough.
    Otherwise we would have games at 100k vs 100k. since a long time.

    GW2 is a bad game on every aspect. its a fking fact. the PVE is bad the PVP is ridiculous and arena completly boring. its just a bad themepark. Mass pvp on GW2 its completly abandonned by arena net. all you can do its boring arena. GW2 is more a Moba that a mmorpg. even more a coorpg

    While 99.99% of other mmorpgs do not even manage to correctly manage 100 person on the screen.

    its your choice to lifeskilling 24h/24. its your choice if you dont do arsha pvp/grinding. Dont say that something does not exist because you avoid it voluntarily.

    If only multiplayer and player interaction meant just "socializing". Trading? Hello? Helping other people with things they need?
    What a great experience, slaughtering thousands of mobs for a guild quest...when the rest of the week you also slaughter thousands of mobs.
    Duo grinding is not even optimal, what are you smoking?
    I'm more than certain I've played more ACTUAL mass pvp mmorpgs, my sweet summer child, so fear not.
    Don't try to bring DAoC, that thing is old, and for its time it was well made. I've no complains about it :)
    I wonder what technical limits are stopping PA though? And if it's really technical related(which is not), why did they make a game that needs technologies that don't exist?!
    BDO is just "ok" combat (not team oriented...who would have thought, another thing designed in singleplayer in mind) and high-fidelity graphics. If I look at random steam review, that's what I'm going to read as pros - graphics and combat. Everything else is bare bones. BDO has brought nothing new to the MMOs, in fact it's lacking features, neither is customer friendly.
    It's hilarious that you claim PvE in GW2 is bad. I'm sure running circles for hours is way more fun. No dungeons, no fractals, no raids, no bounties, no fun holiday events.
    sPvP might be a meme but it's still superior. So many good class combos that can be used. BDO will never be esport, can't even dream about it.
    WvW has a new system that is being worked on, so no, it's not abandoned.
    Best crafting systems(besides EvE), remote deposit on materials, account wide outfits and armor/weapon skins, well made mounts. Things designed not to irritate the players, not gating core features behind paywalls.
    And while it's true, GW2 has reinvented the wheel few times at least they are picking good old stuff...unlike PA who only cause inconveniences and then try to sell you the solution.
    40€ outfit per character is part of the hardcore and immersive experience in BDO, amirite :)

    When you can't offer anything interesting to the players you better focus even more on the graphics. Gotta push that bloom and brightness slider all the way to the right. Adding important QoL changes and call it Remastered would make too much sense for PA.

    Now go and think again what drove the cost of BDO down to 1 million $.

    P.S. Still waiting for class balance patches. Been 4 months since the last patch :)

    I have been fighting to find some motivation to play BDO. But I have nothing over here.

    I have no
    -guild
    -friends
    -gear

    So finding motivation to play BDO is a uphill battle for me.

    Nope You're just used to having wow clones and having the same content. GW2 is totaly a WoW clone with zero new content. purely recycling. Donjon/raid its not new content. its recycing.99.99% it is contained. It's nothing new. therefore this content is useless. Bashing monster or bashing a boss its completly the same think. everythink require zero effort. when you did this during 20 fking years.

    changing the packaging does not make new content. his remains grinding
    no one mmorpg have real esport anyway. e-sport its joke that will never be take seriously. a game is not a sport. just check Fortnite wtf the joke. BR game is totaly RNG on alot of aspect. even Hearthstone have a esport tournement. so Yes. actualy BDO can have Esport. even Poker have thier tournement. so your points is totaly invalid.
    You'll never see StarCraft at the Olympics.

    you are definitly a ignorant that stoped the game long time ago for say this. Fogan and Manshaum are extremly viable on specific rotation.
    ******** Gw2 its the worst game never made. its a Themepark **** tier Copy-pasta of WoW.

    Yes GW2 popular. cause its a garbage Casual game. It's not the amount of players that make the quality of the product. It's only accessibility. exactly like a fast-food. Mcdonald is unhealhy even the much cancerous food of the universe. but still billion of people eat thier bigmac everyday cause of this accessibility.

    Even a 6-year-old autistic can be a PGM on GW2, the gameplay is boring they understood it so much that their game was bad, but they finally decided to put some trinity. which is still missed.

    Say that BDO dont have team-fight its ********. Each classe have thier tools and thier utility. say the opposite damn you are a real blind man. bias as fk.

    Before i start i am not trolling this is a legitimate answer and many will not understand as you hate this aspect of the game.

    I play BDO to enhance gear. I enjoy the RNG aspect of enhancing and it is what keeps me playing KR games. Its why i made a +5 life skill cloths about a year ago it was an item not many people had so i thought it would be fun. It was. Now days i just enhance accessories mainly because i blew all mine up.
