Is there any possible redemption for Bless Online? This disastrous soft launch has many players throwing up their hands and demanding refunds (not to mention flocking to competing titles). Any road forward to viability and stability will lead through proper balance and better design decisions, among others.
Neowiz apologized on Steam for the game’s imbalance after the so-called game balance adjustment in patch 18.104.22.168. The studio went on to outline how it is attempting to shore up the high levels: “Our game balance goal is to bind players together for our endgame content. In addition, we want the endgame to be challenging. However, we understand low-level and solo players’ difficulties and we will make up for it soon.”
Balance is only one of the studio’s worries, however. Players have reported that it’s not that difficulty to utterly break the game by modifying Bless’ initialization file. Want to fly? Choose your level? Bypass restrictions? It’s all possible, and it’s allegedly happening. Perhaps Neowiz needs to get on top of this? Just a friendly suggestion.
