Bless Online stumbles in its open beta

    
45

If you’re not part of Bless Online’s Korean open beta, you might want to count your… um, blessings right now. Instead offering a fun-filled exploration of a new title, Bless Online is showering players with headaches and annoyances.

Steparu reports that the game had a poor start to its OBT: “Bless Online has had a rough opening beta with servers going down instantly after the opening date followed by a five-hour long maintenance! I was actually hoping that the game would have an improved combat system during the past few tests, but it doesn’t seem like there has been any changes.”

He fingers the game’s wonky targeting system as a particular grievance, saying that he was often “whiffing” against enemies right in front of his character. Steparu still took some videos of the opening day, one of which you can watch after the jump.

Balte Yeah I used to be somewhat excited for this game until I learned about that PvP aspect. Apologies to all the “leet PvPers” out there, but this sort of “open-world” PvP, with no level restrictions on it, is just the weakest excuse for PvP in existence.  Give me a game where you aren’t allowed to attack anyone more than 2 or 3 levels above or below you, and I’d buy into that, but for some reason it just doesn’t exist.

Xijit Snky I don’t think it is inherently their choice to make. The big wigs want to go with bare minimum + some backups most of the time so they don’t have more hardware than they need as they feel it’ll be a waste of money in the longer run of things.

Line with more hugs FFXIV in it’s first state was a good game plagued by horrible systems in place that limited people’s gameplay way too much . It was an okay idea to do a lot of what was done and in fact the crafting and many systems were actually good, but it was the fact that they basically limited you in every way possible that unless you specifically went into full on grind mode you couldn’t level well at all til you “recharged” points to do more quests etc…

Non tab mode is actually much better (when it comes to the speed of selecting and only that), not sure how it can be clunky tho, it’s not like there is much room for innovation here. 

Obviously, you won’t know when i click tab but there is a noticeable delay before a mob gets actually targetted and that’s because this mode is subjected to ping as it is in so many other tab targeting games because the server usually needs to confirm that you are allowed to target the object you are trying to select.

Xijit Greaterdivinity Leviathon_lx  There are no new changes in combat. The FGT group was just to test the Mascu race. The same combat system still applies from previous CBT2-3 You can pick Classic Mode or Action Mode. Action mode is still buggy, they were supposed to pull it back and delay the release for later, but wanted to rush into OBT.
