DBO has some ambitious ideas. I like how they have the tournament structured as an actual tournament, and split the tournaments into child and adult. You start as a child and grow up, getting a quest at level 30 to move into adulthood, and the classes advance further at that point. If you are a fan of the Drangon Ball Universe it’s a fun place to hang out in.

The question for DBO is why would someone play this over Xenoverse 2?

Well, if you are a Dragon Ball fan, why wouldn’t you? Where’s the rule that says you have to pick one?

Just to be clear DBO Global is just a fan-translated emulation of the game which was shut down in Fall 2013.

Yes.

So, I just tried Dragonball Online. The controls and movements are actually clunky and kinda buggy. UI isn’t exactly appealing either. The game in its current state feels more like pre-alpha than open beta.

are you guys sure this dragon ball online is legit? just find it odd how the main site after you sign up leads to mega.nz to download the game via the so called direct links.

after clicking direct download it downloads a rar with a text file in side directing you to mega.nz

It’s fine. I just downloaded the direct link. Mega.nz is safe to use.

I feel like some of these items really deserved their own articles :\

Never been a fan of Dragon Ball, never watched the anime, never was interested in it… but… new MMO, I must try it.

It’s not a “new” MMO, it’s an emulator of the dead Dragon Ball Online which was released in Korea/Taiwan/Hong Kong and I think they were working on a Chinese release, but it was shut down in late 2013 and only lived for a little over 3 years.

Overall it was kind of a generic Korean WoW clone with Dragon Ball trappings. A lot of the concepts and storylines used in it were transferred over to Dragon Ball Xenoverse and Dragon Ball Heroes (arcade game in Japan that uses a TCG type collection system that Dokkan Battle somewhat uses). But it was interesting in that you start off as a child and basically go through Dragon Ball era stuff before becoming an adult, getting your prestige class, and then doing the more Z-esque stuff.

Also Humans for some reason could get Super Saiyan with the dragon balls.

I forgot to mention that seeing this game, maybe it’s only a matter of time for such a game, but with One Piece or Naruto themed to appear. Then I will be happy.
