-everything is locked behind instances made of 4-8 people
-why is the world dead
Nice “MMO” lol, the only places where people interact with each other are Islands/world bossed and ships but even there they just do it, collect their reward and are back to doing their chaos dungeons/UNA tasks on alts.
Yea you would actually get to know people on your server. That can kind of happen in LA if you hang out in CH1 punika but … what do you actually do with those people? There’s nothing really in the world to bring people together as an activity. Everything is on a schedule and thus everything feels like a chore.
guilds dont talk. ive been through 25+ guilds now and ive never seen a single person talk. at first i thought the guild chat wasnt working but it just turned out all guilds are dead and the few people on in them never say a word. you dont even get a ‘welcome’ message from people when you join like in literally any mmo in existence.
This is not an mmo. its an arpg. The weekly lockout system is fundamentally bad in every way possible
The game is actually a solo MMO. I find it hard to even socialize with people day by day in Lost Ark and the lengths of conversations almost always end up very short. I in particular blame on the focus of upgrading ilvl since it divides people from interacting with other people. People are already too focused on getting ilvl to get the newest content and that’s all they want. More ilvl determines how well you play the game. Nothing else matters aside from upgrading your gear and getting the highest ilvl.
my experience is the opposite, me and my guild members are chilling in discord whenever we are online, a small guild with only 5 people, just talking and having fun while doing dailies, carrying each others alts, doing card runs, we didn’t know each other before this game, now we playing other games together too, recently all of us even bought elden ring and stream in discord after we finished out dailies
