well, can’t blame bandai namco… if they see the success of loa being always at the top 5 most played games on steam, with 5k positive review in the last 2 weeks, and 300k concurrent users daily, bandai namco be like:
I just prefer a game that has good raid mechanics. Lost Ark is about at a medium in terms of good raid mechanics but I like stuff where everyone needs to be assigned a role for MUTLIPLE mechanics throughout a singular boss fight. For the most part raid mechanics on lost ark kinda lack complexity and often can be cheesed / made easier due to battle items.
Gigantic F. Yea this is dead on arrival. With how AGS manage New World and Lost Ark, I don’t even think they can or have the actual human resources to even properly monitor the game’s condition properly. This is 210% cash cow.
Agreed, I’m trying the closed beta to see how I feel about it before I pass judgement. The combat seems a tad shallow atm with classes being sparsely presented, but my opinion could change drastically as they reveal more.
I think this will be a better fit for AGS than LA. Bandai Namco is familiar with western releases of their games, so communication will probably be better. The game also doesn’t appear to encourage heavy spending like LA does, so the bots might be less an issue as well. It wants to sell cosmetics, not power. That alone will reduce the demand for botted gold.
