As usual the cycle of "Hyped game turns into hated game" continues. lol. How predictable.

The hype is gone, people who are waiting for it have ran out of things to talk about since a lot of them can't try the Korean retail and are simply quiet about it. Some have naturally lost interest, but anyone who says the game will pass here is so delusional it's sad. In some way, the game will go strong because it has the formula to do so, whether it's a mass success or successful to a niche group,l it's going to stay around no matter how much people here wish to tear it down.

NCSoft shouldn't have hyped this so much since they're aiming for 2014 release. Taat was stupid of them.

In my case, it's less of a "hate" thing than a "Games that did what B&S is doing have already been released here".  TERA, for example.  I've already discovered that I'm not a huge fan of games like this, so I'm not going to lie and say it looks incredible.

Point is, it was hyped here before TERA was released.  I don't find it unusual that the hype has died off.

I love this game.  Honestly I actually fell in love with the story of Blade & Soul Online, I really enjoyed the awesome cutscenes it had. There are a bunch of likeable characters that I have met through the story. As for the story, it seemed a bit cliche and linear at first because of the whole revenge thing going on. Once I reached the second and third chapters of the game, the story evolved into something bigger. I don't want to spoil it much, but the plotline becomes a lot more complicated; a lot of the characters betrayed me which made me feel like I couldn't trust anyone. The director of this game said that this game is all about betrayal so don't be too shocked later on. Then there were characters who I thought were bad guys, but weren't bad after all! The story line of Blade & Soul actually made me feel like I was part of the game,as I always found myself rushing through the main story quests because I wanted to know what was going to happen next. Unlike most MMORPG's the cutscenes in Blade & Soul are definitely worth watching. The whole game makes you feel like you're watching some kind of oriental movie flick or action anime.

I prefer only P2P mmorpg .. And I think most dedicated mmorpg players do aswell.

So why so much hype? I was thinking people don't have money, or atleast that's what they say. I like how it looks too, but unfortunately I can't pay so I will be playing C9.

what hype are you on about... i don't think i have seen this game hardly mentioned at all on here...

 

Anyway I was playing the Korean version of this back last year and its not bad at all. it is a shit ton better than c9 and if you like the type of game it is then its well worth a sub. I dont see how anyone could not afford $15 or less a month on something they enjoy... hell you would probably end up spending more in the C9 cash shop anyway lol

NC hyped this title because it is performing incredibly well in South Korea.  They assumed it would get them a decent chunk of revenue out here.

It may not be a smash hit, but they're not looking for that.  They'll be happy with a few 100k regular users.

But yeah, they underestimated how long it would take them to localize the game.  So they hyped it, and the hype died down because people realized they were going to be waiting a long time before launch.

That's why the game is so quiet about an international launch now.  They're not going to open their mouths again until the game is less than six months out.

having seen a few vids from (drakedog) ye he who played WoW must know this guy.
I was totaly blown away how pvp it done, skill based pvp is always welcome, but it also needs to have good pve to chill out for a few hours.

It seems B&S can offer both, but like many many mmo's these days its realy hard to tell untill you have played it at least a week or 2.

Lets hope that some mmo's are finaly worth spending some cash on after all these mmo failures...
