OP  5/11/14 5:52:55 PM#1

Upon hearing about Black Gold Online, I immediately thought of the Syfy channel show “Opposite Worlds”. The show's premise pits two teams of people against one another—one team equipped with futuristic technology and the other with the trappings of the past. Black Gold Online has a similar premise. On a world split by a giant mountain range, two distinct cultures evolve: a Steampunk society that values technology and a tribal society that values sacred magic. Inevitably, they clash. It's an intriguing idea that serves as the foundation for what could be a very compelling PvP-oriented MMO.

Read more of Neilie Johnson's preview of Black Gold Online.

With that train of thought it would be like ordering Korean food  then asking them to make it taste like a hamburger. It is from another country you know.

 

Ran decent in alpha, mobs could have used some more life. I'm guessing tons of improvements for beta. Nice graphics and races, pretty cool on the magic side.

 

Some dynamic events and pvp sounds interesting, nice review thanks for the info.

Players come for the game, but they stay for the people- Most Devs have forgotten this.

Interesting review Nellie. I really want a steampunk/industrial magic game I can feel comfortable in. City of Steam has fallen far short of that for me and Black Gold doesn't seem like it will live up either. The way I've seen their open pvp system described it's just not for me. Having to pay an unlock to wear gear is also a huge negative.

The review, to me, doesn't sounded like it meshes well with the perspective you presented in the convenience piece you wrote in rebuttal to Mark Kern. I think that was a really good article. I wonder how you feel a game like this, which seems to be trying the oldschool approach, fits in with either yours or Mark's outlook on this. I would really love to hear your comments and feelings about the game design and implementation as it appeals (or not) to you.

I think a mind wipe so people could play an mmo like it was their first time again, would be easier to build than a new mmo people here would actually like. - DamonVile

This site still has thousands of beta codes available. Scroll down on the main page and you'll see them. I'd post a link but for some reason this site never lets me paste links, ever.

This is only meant to hold me over till Arche Age to be honest. However, if the pay to unlock gear system is balanced and not severely limiting I'll play this in a more serious manner.

For example, if this is true for any and all gear at any level then I'll pass. If this only applies to say, gear dropped from one of those events or special areas. Then that's totally understandable. Also, if they don't allow you to see the gear as well as the stats prior to unlocking it. Then I will once again pass. I don't intend on paying money to unlock a gear drop without knowing what it is. Also, if they can keep this to being utilized primarily at end-game or just for rare drops while leveling. Then I can see this working and people not getting angry or frustrated. Otherwise I forsee an elite few dumping cash into this and becoming elite in gear as they level. While the majority boycott's the whole system and plays using crappy gear until late game.

I can't get the client to load, anyone else having the same problem? Or can we not load the client before Thursday?

 

I would like to give an opinion on this post, but if I agree I will offend people who disagree. While if I disagree my comment will be seen as inflammatory. Either way I will get banned by this site full of the most delicate flowers in online gaming. Ban people for giving honest opinions... beautiful. Unfortunately I still like the articles.

"1. The system, Black Gold Time, will automatically (every hour) or manually “lock” the loot players get within a time frame.

2. After a few hours, some items will be “locked”, while others will enter player’s inventory.

3. The basic items and less valuable one will be spared from this “lock” system.

4. Players will then purchase gold using cash, and selecting which time-slot’s items to claim. Time-slots can be deleted manually.

5. There is a dice roll option, and if successful, players may get a discount to claim the items. There is a chance all items in the time-slot can be claimed for free as well.

6. Snail Game claims that this is to minimize the number of “useless drops” players need to handle."
