Elyon’s western closed beta is off to a bumpy beginning, but here’s the trailer while you wait

    
13

It’s been a rocky start to the western Elyon beta. MOP’s own Carlo joked that it began promptly at 7 a.m. his time… and crashed exactly one minute later. According to the official Twitter account, Kakao has been working on launcher fixes all morning. It’s already apologized for the delay and promised to extend the CBT.

In any case, the company went ahead and announced the opening with a splashy trailer, talking up the game’s character and skill customization, RvR, clan wars, crafting and trade, dungeons, and more.

“Kakao Games and Bluehole Studio are excited to announce that Elyon’s first closed beta test will begin on May 6 at 12:00 UTC, running until May 10 at 8:00 UTC. […] Over the past few years Elyon (formerly known as A:IR) has gone through vast changes in many parts of its gameplay experience, from leveling flow adjustments to the conversion of the combat into an action-based system. While Bluehole Studio, Inc. are continuously working on making Elyon a great MMORPG, Kakao Games are preparing at an ever-increasing pace to release the game outside of Korea and are excited to hear players’ feedback!”

People should Google ‘brutal cbt’ and see what other people have to deal with ;)

there were a few classes and armor sets where i was like, “i own that armor in BDO and have used that skin on that character that looks like she may be of an age where the devs know better.”

Bruh, this is the first closed beta test. This is like, what it’s designed for. This isn’t a fuckup, it’s very much working as intended.

You are seriously joking right? Are you not familiar with current online game launch trend?

It’s their first CBT, not open beta or launch. CBT is designed to find problems like this and address them as a part of testing.

This was/is invite only.
No amount of simulations can compare to real players, and no amount of extra computing power can solve a bottleneck that’s software based.
Are you not familiar with how mmo server tech works?

But they both have such fantastic track records of launching MMOs, how could this have happened?

Wonder what this game is like. Because the trailer looks incredibly generic.
And somehow this game is a decade younger yet still doesn’t look better than Black Desert.

Its made by the same studio that makes TERA, so if you use that as a starting point its a leap forward.

BDO is always going to look the best though.

It is as generic as that “new” mobile mmorpg released several days ago(there must be one of those, I mean they are shitting out one of those every other day). Originally, the game was really amazing and unique, aerial+mecha based pve and pvp as main focus, lots of exploration and unique discovery based achievement and content system. However the first iteration of the game only had 20 levels and limited areas. And when they finally released open alpha, it became a generic shit.

I will say, the official Discord’s general chat is HILARIOUS right now.
