So i am wondering if maybe Massively could look into how an NCSoft game that is released in the west in 2016 was so woefully unprepared for…
Gold Seller’s spam.
Server overcrowding/Lack of new servers brought online.
Official Forum traffic.
Cash Shop payments getting accepted in a timely fashion.

For me it seems crazy that NCSoft helps release a game, and seems like this is there first ever, they look like fools in my opinion. 

Don’t get me wrong i am really enjoying the game, but how does this happen ?

P.S. I really enjoyed your stream M.J. I started out as a Summoner also.

To each their own. There is significant depth in the combat given some investment but if it doesn’t catch you initially then perhaps it’s just not for you – and that’s fine.
However, having played multiple classes, I can confidently say that it is not mindless button spam. B&S actually requires paying attention to combat cues – Blade Masters and Kung Fu Masters are a perfect example of timing block/parry skills and countering appropriately.
The lack of skill diversity in early levels is fortunately/unfortunately consistent across most MMOs and for better or worse, is designed to gradually ease players into layered combat complexity/mechanics.

kgptzac iridescence I guess I’m spoiled by my main MMO – DDO which has tons of character customization in the first few levels.  But most games I’ve played had at least some by lvl 10. Maybe B&S gets deeper later but the first couple of hours didn’t make it seem like an MMO I’d enjoy at all. Making cool builds is my main thing in MMOs. I don’t want to be the same as everyone else in my class. Is there more customization later on in the game?

iridescence What are you talking about?  After choosing your class how many MMOs out there let you do serious branching of your class skills within 10 levels?  If you have issues with the game’s tutorial, don’t blame it on the class/skill system/mechanism.
