Black Desert video review rips MMO beta as a ‘shallow game’

    
168

When it comes to MMO betas, don’t you usually want to cut through the hype and hysteria to get at the truth of whether or not the game is, y’know, good? YouTuber KineticGTR sought to do just that in his sojourns in Black Desert’s Korean beta test, and while he was initially excited about the game, after he spent some time playing, his opinion soured on it.

“I’m sorry to report that things are not as amazing as they seem in currently in the game,” the author said. “It is what it is: a very pretty but shallow game.”

In the review, KineticGTR concedes Black Desert is “stunning” and “charming,” with a strong combat system. However, he docks the game for lacking robust sandbox features and for being far too easy.

You can watch the full 25-minute review of Black Desert’s beta after the break.

paterah I’m afraid this review is “old” and he has not played Valencia part two. And many facts are simply just not going to effect anything or over exaggerated.

All seem to disagree with numbers/certain things there.  Additionally, the direct website states that XP penalties for dying are maintained in their newest PVP update, along with a number of other things like a reduction in the negative karma from PKing.
Nothing seems to point to arena stopping you from fighting somebody you are in clan/party/guild with.
If you think this will stop PKs… have fun dying lots!

Robert80 Line with more hugs Flamethekid This game is a theme park? Are you high as a kite? All the areas are more or less towns. There is no team park in this game, except the combat!
No immersion, and if what Flamethekid said is true then daaam, pvp is a baller.

Robert80 Dexyu274 Bango Open PvP is 
-Disable until Lv50 (mean you cant PvP during your WHOLE leveling time, you have to deal with clown kill stealing quest monster etc, and can’t even train in arena to have some fun dueling)
-Disable in Clan & party (you cant PvP with friend anymore (even in arena) when they are in your clan)
-Just attacking someone first now cost 10.000 tendancy pts ! and you are flaged during 3 min (if someone come to troll you on your Xp spot you just can’t do anything without being fucked, you have to suffer/endure the carebear way)
-PvP death penalty is now meaningless (no Xp loss, mean the guy you killed can come back again and again and keep trolling you, while you lose all your good tendancy trying to make him leave)
-Attacking PK player don’t a make neutral player PvP flaged ( mean that you cant defend your friend who took the risk to PK but you have to share his sin with the guild tendancy system (total nonsense)
-One PK make you lose instanly 200.000 good tendancy ( one monster = 70~ pts )
-Being PK is not risky since you can’t drop equiped stuff but only some low cost gem, you also can’t delevel, you just have to stupidly farm alone.
-Washing 3 PK ask you to kill 7000 monster ALONE (so 1 week of solo farming if you play everyday….) ( since the PKer need the last hit you can’t even creat a PK clan and wash your karma/tendancy together )
I took this off a site, looks like a loot of fun. You go grind on those monsters.

ThunderJackson scathson Hey if you like it, good for you, but that game as it is now, has not much to offer.
