I want to play again Edition.
>What is Blade & Soul?
Blade & Soul is a Korean fantasy martial-arts MMORPG developed by Team Bloodlust(NCsoft). The game is heavily grounded in Chinese culture and martial-arts, and was praised for its dynamic combat and high skill-cap PvP. Currently in Korea, its one of the most played games and even has an esports scene that is fairly popular.
>Whats is the class system like?
Currently there are 8 classes with only 7 on NA release. There is no trinity of roles but instead, certain classes act as tanks in PvE while most classes have a self heal or lifesteal ability. Another unique thing is how classes can interact with each others CC to use certain abilities, such as grabs and tackles.
>Why is it getting such an uproar now?
The North American Version of Blade & Soul was recently announced and is entering Closed Beta Testing soon.
>CBT1 has ended! CBT2 will begin November 13 10am PST and will introduce the servers for our friends in EU
>Skill tree preview
https://bnstree.com/ (ahead of NA version)
>Official Beta Build info
Mushin is main server Iksanun is the secondary server if you don't want queue times.
You can choose a faction in Bamboo Village. If one is full, you can switch later in Jadestone village
NFA - Mushin, Red Faction
H Scene - Iksanun, Blue Faction
Make a post replying to the OP with your IGN and server for an invite.
>More Info (including BnS TW, character presets and class rundowns):
I meant to say were going to have to choose between defense skills and full stun times because the lack of skill points. And you'd be a fool not to take the defense skills. It's late, sorry.
So what's more face roll in pve, Destroyer, or FM?
looking at some of the most recent content in korea, they really seem to be going for more gimmick oriented dungeons to make things interesting (or burdening chores)
at least the influx of stuff makes it look hopeful for things pve wise
I usually play males, but I can actually make, in my opinion, an attractive (=fat) female in this game so I did that, considering I usually don't get to make one. I feel more attached to the character, in a non-sexual way, than my usual totally-not-me male characters. Also, it's fun to be a controversial character - and she has a nice butt.
post characters to draw
can even add what you want them doing, lewd too
might look worse than pic related, but I'll try, I'm pretty on/off in terms of how good stuff looks
p.s. the guy with the fatty, I'm not forgetting her
Can you draw this pose please?
It's funny because it's not true.You guys are using 10 years old "le edgy teen" trope.
But just look at any game recently released with clearly identified factions, and the casual, braindead mass will flock to the "nice guys" while the "bad guys" will always be underpopulated.
It was exactly the same on this game, everybody and their grandmother was cerulean before, nothing will change with the official western release.
>ask people beforehand so they have time to post and for me to have stuff to pick from
>ask people so I can draw, wait 15-30 min while I want to draw right away, get one response and I like it or not that's the only thing I got atm
well mang, it's not like this is a prime time for NA to sleep and EU to be at work
>while the "bad guys" will always be underpopulated
Right which is why Crimson would always say "Full" on every server, because you could still join it even if it had more members than cerulean.
>redfag making up shit so he seems less like an edgy bandwagon shitter
Are you the same dude who was drawing things in dragons dogma general when ddon came out?
Servers are down. Not much to discuss.
Gonna try drawing my own character later, I guess.
dunno who this character belongs too but draw it anyway
>People desperately trying to get beta invites
>They don't just purchase initates and refund after the CBT's are over
Posses for Gon too
>le stronk womyn worrior class
You made my gon, but with fatter thighs.
I prefer the short spiky hair, but sometimes I want a long style that does not hang down the front.
I edited her arms for the NA version so they are less noodly.
Christ what's my Yun so pissed at? That's a fucking death stare.
Legs are too long. I always have to crank down on the thigh and calf length sliders.
I don't take them down all the way like RealismAnon, but I have a limit as to how much leg vs torso I can take.
They'll probably change the swastigun...if that content ever makes it to NA.
Was already implemented in KR if I'm not mistaken, or with the next patch.
Yeah, but is that enough to not start a social media shitfest?
Fuck social cancer, now just imagine a world without it.
I'm working on it, but at least I'm not a noodle.
Release is going to have a million large bust Lyn if this is true. No one will stop screaming until it's pushed into the NA/EU release at launch.
>Dumbest and most pointless censor
It totally sounds like something a dumb bitch would suggest isn't it
>it's small so not hard to look over
Well it only affects character creation, but it's still annoying and I'll still keep the TW version around for any other gon I make, because those poses are beyond awful for getting a good variety of looks at your character.
Perhaps a better outfit/shot.
There's this. And that's about it for non-faction pieces.
There's also this set if you don't mind being perma-pvp flagged.
The clothes are one thing, they could have made an extra outfit for that anyways.
The poses are utter bullshit and don't even try to tell me that an angty rage scream and two macho stances are simply because you can't see the full body perfectly with the old ones.
In other words, eat a dick you stupid whore.
what the fuck is up with all these shitty avatarfagging? holyshit stop it!
Reminder BnS was held back from the west for this shit.
>all the poses have arms obscuring the way and torsos twisted
>in a game where nothing else has been censored
Get your head out of the gutter, you simple minded faggot. The world is bigger than trying to impose imaginary restrictions on your worthless ass.
>You can only tell a woman to eat a dick and call them a whore
>Posting your character once makes you an avatarfag
This is an MMO general, characters being posted is a simple fact that will never change.
Oh man, you're serious.
You honestly think three poses with fists is a good way to make characters?
You honestly think ZERO variety in character angle is a good way to make character?
Ok. Watch this.
Hey! Do you guys wanna talk about some PvP stuff for BnS or would you prefer more avatarfagging?
>inb4 what about PvP?
OK so, who here is a BM and what's do you normally do vs Summoners and Sins?
What's the punish for KFM Back dash -> Tab
Explain the SIN matchup.
that'll be all for now.
I'm only doing it because that faggot mob keeps banning me.
Is this really your reply!? So we're NOT going to talk about PvP then?
I don't care what you have to say or what reasoning. Let's talk about some fucking PvP, also known as gameplay. OR.... are you going to ignore the PvP discussion again?
Once!? THis guy said once, haha. Would you like me to quite all the post for one fatty from this tread and the last one?
>Get ready to run ti a lot since it's kinda rare.
Don't forget that once it does drop, you're gonna be in a party with a faggot that got a master's pack and dumped all of his ncoin into gold and immediately drops 1g on his bid.
>So we're NOT going to talk about PvP then?
Unless it's discussing Korean matches, there's nothing that can be seriously discussed right now.
The NA/EU version is in beta testing, between tests at that, meaning the threads aren't active at all save this rampant shitposting.
No one wants to play other versions seriously anymore after getting a taste of good ping. This also means that there is going to be no real discussion on the fact that people can't properly check their sets and trees to give real talk over stuff that is applicable in the current version with the 45 cap.
>Would you like me to quite all the post for one fatty from this tread and the last one?
Wow, you found one avatarfag that isn't in the thread right now.
Meanwhile of the 40 images, over half of them probably aren't even related to the game.
>They suck at PvE
No they don't, what kind of bullshit are you smoking?
> they suck at PvP
>One of the top three rated players in korea is an FM
The class takes real effort to get good with, like KFM.
How are my proportions now? Made arms longer, added more arm and leg width, and made hands smaller
>They suck at PvE
Where's their anicancel? Anicancel=everything in PvE.
>One of the top three rated players in korea is an FM
But there are fewer FMs than any other class in the top 200.
>Where's their anicancel? Anicancel=everything in PvE.
You can't be serious.
>But there are fewer FMs than any other class in the top 200.
BECAUSE the class takes real effort and most people would rather play KFM/BD/LBD.
I'd still complain when after 4 hours of running that happens.
So PvP discussion and more avatarfagging. I come in here trying to start an actually discussion about the game and instead of talking about PvP we're making excuses as to why we should talk less about PvP and more about avatarfagging.
And just so you know, Korean and America are two different countries. There scene and our scene will be completely different in the form of playstyles and mindset, so don't give me that bullshit. It's like you've never even played a competitive game in America and then faced out with some like.... from Japan. Two completely different mindsets towards the any game, not just BnS. That's why EASTERN player and usually much better. But them being better won't translate over to America so it's pointless to talk about them unless it about some interesting tech you saw and would love to add to your gameplay. But let's continue avatarfagging and not talking PvP. Even your reply to this post won't start a PvP discussion. It'll simply lag on and on until one of us stop replying.
>Let's talk about PvP with the NA PvP scene in mind.
>When the NA servers have had only one CBT and are currently down.
>When the intricacies of the "NA scene" you so aptly described haven't even developed.
Am I deliberately placing my own hand over a stoking hot fire and hammering it?
Just kill yourself. You simply do not understand experience and mindset. That's like saying the SFV tournament for a game that isn't even out yet but has loads of cash for 1st place doesn't matter.
Log in and go back to the founder's pack page. You can now upgrade by paying the difference and without having to refund shit
Not him, but what the fuck is there to talk about NA PvP? Server was up for a little bit of alpha and ONE beta weekend.
I wish I could talk about it, but unlike you I didn't put up with the +200 ping to TW/CN/JP/KR and have not played the game enough to have any valuable input. I reckon that's why no one is talking about PvP: only a handful of people played the Asian versions enough to know anything about it.
>I come in here trying to start an actually discussion about the game
No, you came in bitching about avatarfagging and trying to force discussion.
>And just so you know, Korean and America are two different countries.
>There scene and our scene will be completely different in the form of playstyles and mindset, so don't give me that bullshit.
And our scene won't develop until the damn game is released.
There ISN'T an NA/EU playstyle currently because our version isn't out yet.
>It's like you've never even played a competitive game in America and then faced out with some like.... from Japan.
I live in the boondocks, I couldn't do competitive shit if I wanted to.
>That's why EASTERN player and usually much better.
RTS and MOBA aren't the only genre of game used competitively anon.
Fighters are mixed and shooters are mostly dominated by the west.
>But them being better won't translate over to America
Right, because there isn't the slight chance that NA/EU manages to get a competitive BnS scene going and that knowing how Korea plays won't make a difference.
First your excuse was the game isn't out, but after realizing SFV exist your NEW excuse is that there isn't anything to discuss, but I already tried to start a discussion with three choices and instead of getting right in the PvP discussion we are here arguing if we should or shouldn't talk about PvP. WHAT IN THE ACTUAL FUCK.
you forgot to put "K-Pop Shitter" on the list.
Hey! It's you, my first! Maybe we should meet up in-game this weekend. I think you'll start to like me as you've been on my case since the beginning. I'll also introduce you to my K-Pop collection, and if you just so happen to be a fan of kpop we'd become great friends. Oh and it's also required that you have tons of experience with the game. I'm a grill btw
What are you playing to fill the void, /bnsg/?
Starting blitzkrieg once I unlock panzer
Good, all the more incentive to post more Lyn
trying to make something different feels like a struggle
you download this
though copy just the folders that are the same as in your TW directory, some anon here posted an easy copy-paste for the NA version
Some fancy run particle effects. Your run meter fills faster, exp and gold bonuses, a handy from the ugly pr chick that's in every stream, bonus spending for the noncashsop cashshop, extra login spins or whatever the current login deal-ey is for that month, a few other things.
You can sell 10 items daily with premium, 5 for peasants.
>Your run meter fills faster
No, is the thing that fills while you are meditating after a rez
WildStar, and tomorrow, LAN party with friends playing some Black Ops3.
>how hollow they are by comparison
You're in for a rude awakening
All the content in the world doesn't mean shit if your core game isn't fun to play. This applies to FFXIV in particular. There's only so many ways to make a tab target 2.5s GCD game interesting and at this point I feel SE has exhausted them all.
So what you're saying is, if I made a girl wet then that makes her a swimming expert?
No it's not. It's a buggy mess of a game that gets pretty much no content updates and has the most incompetent developers I've seen in a long time.
Also the most autistic userbase
>Blue faction always full of narcissistic elitist normalfags
>Red faction always full of for the horde salivating neanderthals
Yes that will be changed for sure. We release the game officially in Germany don't forget that.
I know that >>121364412 is right, but it doesn't matter. Lot of people will misinterpret it. So all symbols that can be misinterpreted (like this one) will be edited.
>trying to make something different feels like a struggle
How about trying some realistically shaped and sized tits?
Stop maxing out the sliders and go look at some real boobs on real women in the C cup and lower range.
you'd be amazed at how much better a character can look with a properly shaped bust.
any chance this outfit will get added to the shop?
Why did the fun "wet" title get changed to the boring as fuck "swimming expert"?
Is that also "localisation" or can you guys just not into humour?
He's right though, there hasn't been a new raid or dungeon or whatever for pretty much just as long
So tell me what else worthwhile was added the past year? Like one adventure no one plays maybe? That terrible boss in a box no one plays? And... pets maybe?
Yeah, that's some big patches for a whole year for a sub-based game mate!
>Is that also "localisation" or can you guys just not into humour?
But they have the epic memes of Oh Tak!
I'm not really close to anything related to English Localisation. We only manage French and German in Europe.
Was "wet" fan-translation? What was the original Korean word (in Hangul)?
I know how the breast sliders work for Gon. I spent at least 5+ hours staring at my original Gon design, and then another 2+ messing with her again and again testing her appearance in game and making sure I got her perfect.
Spoken like a true autist who has never played the game.
>Spoken like a true autist who has never played the game.
Gonna actually retort what he said or just get to namecalling? There HASN'T been very much content added since release and what little is there was simply held back for updates' sake.
>Spoken like a true autist who has never played the game.
Mate I was in Enigma and killed Avatus way back when. And after that there's just nothing to do.
Which you know as well cause you don't answer my question about what for significant content was added the last year. Just proves that they've added nothing worthwhile to the game in over a year while still charging a sub.
No wonder it only made 1,7 billion KRW last quarter.
Oh don't you start this server war again.
I'm sure a lot of people started on CN or RU then migrated to JP or TW when those services became obsolete. We already got JP and TW players to nicely coexist during the last time this gen was alive don't you go ruining it.
>Just shitposted until CN version because KR was a pain in the ass to break into
>We already got JP and TW players to nicely coexist
JP fucking off isn't exactly playing nice
When did they fuck off? Players from both servers actively posted until the hiatus, and the pastebin had guides for both servers for whatever server newbies wanted to get into.
>only made 1,7 billion KRW last quarter
Like in total revenues or profit?
Because if that's their total revenue in a whole quarter how are they even still operating? They're losing a shitton of money every month in that case.
In 'sales", so revenue. To be fair this ISN'T counting their F2P transition, but...
Fucking hell, that's pretty tragic. Surprised Ncsoft hasn't just pulled the plug on them.
Do we know anything about how successful the f2p transition was or not?
Also surprising how good Lineage 1 is still doing
Player housing (or just guild dojos; don't really care if it's instanced or not. I'd just like a place for my character and friends to hang out. Would also be cool if players could raid other dojos like in Age of Wushu)
A new ranged class like a gunner or archer
A new melee weapon class that uses spears or polearms
A Yun/Kun exclusive class
More hairstyles (Already confirmed, but putting it out there)
More character creation options like muscle slider and color wheel for hair and eyes
A custom emote function for the roleplay fags (like me)
More animated emotes (Adding the character creation poses as emotes would be a good start.)
DOG SUMMONS for summoner class
One major problem with that request is that the color swatches for hair color actually changes the way the hair is shaded.
They would probably have to add controls for shininess(/specular intensity) and highlight colors as well. Which would be really neat, but adds to the workload.
Lyn boob slider
hair/eye color wheel
A gunslinger class, but has their own form of melee fighting (gunkata)
A staff, spear, or polearm class
Certain adjustable outfits (like you can choose which pieces to wear/not wear and how to wear it.
You can do it ingame too, there's a character button or album or the like, there's a save button there that will save your appearance. Stuff ends up in user\my pictures\bns.
The screenie album is the thing.
I'll post it tomorrow if someone will still be interested after I find it.
Ragdolls, for a new looking experience on all the combos every time. Also after death and what not.
>see blue faction members ganging up on lone reds like a gang of dindus on whitey
>WHO DA BES XDXD BLU4LYFE RED IS SHIT!
>reds do this shit as well
I think they're both equally as shitty.
>doing faction dailies with a friend
>blue summoner stands by NPCs and attacks us
>if we try to do anything he runs back into his tent
>calls a whole party of blues to attack us
I'm perfectly okay with painted on abs.
Oh my christ i'm so fucking bored SOS
this piece of shit general never cease to make me angry. lyn boob slider is your most wanted things in this game? well fucking kill yourself.
I swear to god I will make it my mission in life to make your stay in this game as terrible as possible if you ever post your character name once we're at release.
But they're also painted on. As in painted normal maps on top of the normal body model.
Something they could very, very easily do in B&S (in fact, something they already do with the wrinkle textures).
>tfw graphics update releases around the same time B&S gets its NA release
All I see is the 6th and it's 11am in Korea right now. Also we DBZ now
I'm curious. DOes there even need to be gameplay in BnS. Because every single MMO general seems to be filled with anti-gameplay faggots who against gameplay discussion and even playing the game outside of RP and character creator.
I said every MMO general, not /bnsg/. It's seem like 90% ass and tits 10% gameplay and that 10% is usually someone asking about which classes is best/worst. There's never any real gameplay discussion even when new content is coming out.
there's a difference between not actively talking about gameplay and talking about adding boob sliders for a race that looks like children. In the previous thread there was people talking about lyn dick size.
this is a trash general and I will call it out every chance I get.
Degenerates are everywhere on 4chan. Most of the people actually don't care what they say here due to anonymity. Just ignore the shitposters and come back when the game is active for actual conversations.
It's because communities don't run them off early, if you report the avatarfags derailing the threads it will get deleted. If you don't report them don't expect anything to happen.
>this is a trash general and I will call it out every chance I get.
>instead of setting an example and trying start discussions every change you get
So you're just like all the other faggots that think they're doing the general a service by shitting on shitposters which just generates more shit. Yawn.
>MGRR composer did tracks for this game
God damn that's neat. Now I'm a bit hyped to hear what he whipped up.
I kinda don't want to listen to the songs he's done for the game yet on Youtube. I want to be excited hearing them for the first time in-game.
During the Korean dev Q&A the head guy came out as being a huge MGS fan. They also like the Trivium, if you watched any of the tournaments you'll remember hearing these.
Brace your eyeballs.
Seriously, it's bright and bloomy out here.
Is it viable to play 2 characters simutaneously in this game? Or should I reach endgame and attempt to fully learn one class before creating another?
Well to be fair it sounded good on paper. Ex-WoW team wanted to get back to their roots and create a game with Vanilla feel while evolving a bit from the WoW formula?
It was the execution that fucked up royal.
Flash of Steel is still one of my favorites. Plays when you get the rare yeti boss:
They can be, but you're talking about an extraordinarily minimal improvement, especially in the case of games like B&S that aren't heavily multithreaded: http://www.anandtech.com/show/9482/intel-broadwell-pt2-overclocking-ipc/4
Both IPC and clock speed have stagnated for the past few years. CPUs are just not a great place to look for FPS improvements.
Good to know. Thanks anon.
Have this random Raichu thing as a token of my appreciation!
I may have gone too far in a few places.
Get 1 to 45 with max flame weapon so you can run dailies for gold, level another in your spare time if you want even more gold. I usually do
KFM - main
BM - alt
SIN - level 36/40 farming mule
I would do more but I main PvP and only do PvE to sell gold/hoard for hongmun skills. I farm dungeons on the SIn that drop good, tradeable weapons since you can infinite stealth and have 0 mechanics.
>can sega just release this outside of japan
No. The console peasants killed their interest in the WESTERN market last generation. You know niggas only play Call of Duty when even Valkriyie Chronicles sales poor on the PS3. Btw it sold amazing on PC.
JP version has me spoiled. My summoner is jammed up at a story quest dungeon, but I've been doing that hello kitty and halloween event, getting all kinds of junk.
Going to be a pain to start all the way over, especially when you manage to get lucky in the other regions. Got so many costume drops, and perfect Bopae upgrades.
I could have sworn they were issuing out license for other companies to publish the game. You mean to tell me that no one was interested in releasing PSO2 in the west but SA got an English version? Or... is SEGA holding out because they feel NA is a potential market? That's stupid because it's too fucking late now that everyone is releasing their shit in the West nowadays. I actually thought we'd see PSO2 before BnS. Funny how things turned out.
Are they going to use authentication like wildstar or the security card like the other regions do?
The sheer amount of fucking lifesteal that's on display is beyond the pale. No way ANYONE should be ending the match with that much HP left, especially after taking that many hits.
I also noticed the people who won in season one, the videos we're seeing right now in the championship rounds, didn't have as much match up knowledge as people from season 2. Like the first bm vs des match, they were using techniques that were 2 patches too old.
i can't force you to do anything because at the end of the day all i'll ever be to you is these letters on this board
i can give you suggestions that would suit my ends, but of course, you can always just say no
if you really want her to be better, you're at a point where your graphics aren't good enough for people to nitpick all the little things, so work on that and you'll be fine
That wasn't me. I'm actually really into chubby girls, but I wanted to dial this one back a tad because I'm a semi-RP fag and being a fatty didn't quite suit her.
You're overdoing the shit out of it so either slim her down or just go full yolo on the sliders.
Make her head a bit bigger and her waist thicker. Slim down the thighs if you made her pelvis thickness even smaller.
Yun also has those fucked up joints so you can make the calves a bit smaller.
holy shit, this praetor guy is pretty autistic to devote all of his time to doing dailies for all of his characters on KR
or maybe i'm being triggered because of how mediocre of a player he is (in both PVE AND PVP) even though he's spent all this time and money on them
>Implying I won't be down to pvp at a moment's notice.
Bring it, spinfag.
joke's on you, not only am i an rp-fag, but i also place a high importance on self improvement in pvp
i would welcome you killing me, and like a shounen protagonist, i would only grow stronger with each defeat, until eventually i would be the winner
I'll ERP over your corpse.
That's if they ever decide to make the post length a decent amount. Seriously, these two sentences would probably be pushing it.
>implying you can kill ERPers if they don't have a PvP outfit on.
I hit a nerve betafags? I know you tiny dicked keks can't get it up unless some other person is fucking your waifu. You really are pathetic secondlife tier losers.
