Ah, this is actually really unfortunate, I had a founder’s pack and was pretty excited for this game. Worst part is this is NCSoft, and I dont know how many of you remember what happened with Carbine’s fuckup in Wild*, but they legitimately removed breast sliders because a transsexual steampunk cosplaybitch said they were “Too Unrealistic” for her 300 lb male body.
I’ve played Blade and Soul for the past 2 years on both China and JP when JP went free to play. I was looking forward to BnS coming to west for 2 reason, 1 being ping and 2 a faith full translation of the story so i could experience it again this time first hand instead of reading summaries, scripts, machine translations and youtube videos which I had to do due to incomplete in game fan translations. The Blade and Soul story is a magical fucking experience and now Im disenchanted that they are changing in terms of the time travel arc because it apparently dosent make sense even though in three other Asian regions it makes perfect sense and now there is this censorship. I wonder what they are going to Buy Blade And Soul Gold with the next iteration of the Beta and I wish I could do something about it. Still I guess its too much to ask of NC Soft for a faith full 1 to 1 translation and decent voice actors like Square did with FF XIV. RIP in peace NA blade and Soul enjoy pandering to western ideals and sjw story standards.
Do they think the average western player is going to want to play this MMO? Most of the people are probably interested because of the fact that it’s Korean. Watering it down with memes and censorship is driving away the crowd that would have been the primary purchasers in the first place.
