The january update is not sufficient content. Incase your teams wern’t already aware…
People are not satisfied with Q1 roadmap, nor content cadance, nor class cadance.
As far as most players are literally concerned, there is 4 months of nothing until Brel HM and Artist.
Ppl want to know what’s in an update in only 3 weeks time because it is our versions first anniversary and there should be some hype around this leading up to the first year of launching in the west.
For other games you(we) know what content is coming down to specific details in the next month on a regular basis, let alone 1st anniversary events/content where its like a 2 month spread with content/events leading up to it, and during/after it.
The bar is so low that people praise that you don’t dc, stockholm syndrome at its finest.
Rowen is a dead continent.
Nobody pvp’s as it is, nobody goes to PvP islands unless they have to. Rowen has literally nothing you need to do for PvE/horizontal gains and ppl will play it for the first week then never come back. The entire place is skippable, BTW
Not true. What do you call Blue Protocol? kek
if you guys are able to fix all the broken shit within the game like disconnect, weekly lockout and have a smooth running game for anniversary, i’m completely fine with that, the best reward I can fucking ask for.
Lol yea right, keep dreaming.
You forgot to say that “it’s a slap in the face”… LOL
That’s going to be a hot mess.
AGS have published 2 games, New World, Lost Ark. For the first years of both of these games, they had almost parallel, ongoing/constant issues.
It doesn’t even matter if BP is good fundamentally (Like how New World + Lost Ark are both good games, seriously) there will be a multitude of ways that the experience for players and service from the game release will be awful for many, many months.
That doesn’t even cover the woke aspect that AGS want delve into with a anime/manga art style inspired game. I can somewhat get Artist censorship and the skin color tones change (although I still dislike even them doing that in the first place, btw) in a game like Lost Ark because of the realism of graphics. However for a pure anime/manga art style game, that REALLY is not going to sit well with the community that want to play BP.
If BP also gets the same treatment as Lost Ark and NW I hope no one will do business with AGS anymore. On the third game you deal and still make the same mistakes, you don’t deserve to be in the industry again and you deserve to go bankrupt.
It already is, the BP community is not happy about it either.
Time will tell if the servers/ban systems will hold, but I doubt it.
New world had an awful ban system, many false bans, different but similar to how bans happened at start of lost ark. We’ve had like what, 3-4 occurences of mass ban waves of innocent players just for LA.
Both NW and LA had shit servers for a year after release, LA still does…
I could legit make a list of 50+ occurences/items that have failed/been disastorous between these two MMORPGS tbh
They’ve been spreading themselves too thin quite aggressively. I actually think the 4-month cadence was too much time allotted just for SG to edit some base armor and skins. Grabbing more IP’s to publish certainly contributes to the “development schedule” roxx was talking about
Maybe, but I did read somewhere that AGS, just the studio, had 1billion dollars pumped into it yearly by Amazon, this is without revenue, which is the same amount for the entirety of all smilegate divisions (not just smilegate rpg) for their yearly revenue.
So they should be able to handle it.
But it’s quite clear, there is some very incompentent members at AGS because they have failed at multiple things, numerous times, not just for LA and NW, but previous unfinished projects too that have been dead in the water.
I personally don’t give Amazon as a whole long… they are kind of losing grip on stuff. If you look at their share prices, they are the lowest they’ve been since 2018/19. And from media and staff layoffs across the board, they aren’t growing, they are shrinking…
You would think, e-commerce and web services aside, with 2 mmorpgs released under your name, Lord of the rings sequel, etc, that should add equity, but all you can see is decline.
“Mike Frazzini had never made a video game when he helped start Amazon Game Studios. Eight years later, he has released two duds, withdrew both from stores after a torrent of negative reactions and canceled many more.”
“They include “customer obsession” and “frugality.” For a company man like Frazzini, they offer a scale by which every member of the team is measured. “If you don’t come in line with that approach, you’ll struggle at Amazon,” says Jason Child, who spent more than a decade in Amazon’s finance department. Adapting to the corporate culture counts for much more than expertise, he says. “If someone is a guru in video games and they go to Amazon, would they be successful? Probably not.””
I stand corrected, apparently they dropped 500m into amazon games studios. Granted Frazzini left, the new guy who heads AGS started mid-late last year.
Whoever the decision maker on both games and the other entertainment department, is just bad at doing their job. They’re trying to appeal to the woke-mentality to be somehow “up-to-date”.
I say this because of the direction of the stuff they put out – New World with its no-gender character creation, LostArk with the butchered representation, and as for the Lord of the Rings we dont talk about it (becase lmao)
Their community is burning and it’ll burn stronger when the game releases.
There is no good coming from this, that is evident by reviews on their shows and the games.
This I think is one of the causes, if not the root cause of all AGS problems in the games.
The fact that it receives free funds, AGS can afford to do as they please because they risk nothing. That’s why they don’t care about users and feedbecks.
If it were a company like any other where its earnings come from user purchases, they wouldn’t allow themselves to treat users this way.
- 2 months+ of DCs
- bugs with every patch (some would be fixed by testing builds that AGS doesn’t do)
- false of legitimate users
- Feedback not listened to
You and like 10 other people per server in total (and i’m not even sure this is a hyperbolic statement or just plain fact btw). You certainly will enjoy the pvp arena where everyone waits for “contribution condition has been met” message in chat and then goes afk. And they’ll be doing that until they get their lego books and adventure tome stuff. Have fun.
you forgot that Omnium Star
you have to do a fieldboss which is linked to an pvp event, if you are lucky, the pvp guys kill you before you can kill the fieldboss, which then will be the factor that you not even get the chance to kill the fieldboss, and then it not even dropped that Star
