Bless EU/NA Status Update 9/13/16

bless

A Message from Product Manager Carsomyr

 

Hi all,

 

I told you that we would make an update after the Gamescom as well as C-Level meetings Neowiz and Aeria had and now I’d like to update you about the current status of the game. Unfortunately, we couldn’t come up with a fix launch date and milestones like close beta tests and open beta tests because the project is bigger than expected and the game needs a couple of tweaks to be able to penetrate the western MMO market and to have a stable and sustainable future in there.

 

We as Aeria Games want to deliver you the best Bless version as possible. The game has a great lore behind its world, solid gameplay and a big potential to become a sustainable and long lasting MMORPG in the western market. In order to make that happen though, we need to deliver a more polished and complete product. We are still talking about what the change needs are and what needs to be done before the game comes to the western market. Here are a couple of things that Neowiz Bless Studio will be working on:

 

Ingame performance: Neowiz Bless Studio is putting the most effort and planning to improve the performance aspects of massive battle contents such as Siege of Castra, Capital War, Raid etc. to provide the players the best gaming environment.

 

Combat System: As many of you might know, the combat system as of now feels unresponsive and the action combat is not on par with current generation action MMORPGs. Neowiz will be working on both tab targeting and action combat systems to have better combat experience in both systems. In the end of the day, combat is a very important aspect of every MMO and needs to feel good to keep players entertained in combat.

 

These are two of many changes, which will come to with the western release of Bless. I understand from a player perspective that it sucks to wait for a game for an indefinite amount of time but on the other hand, it is going to be above your expectations and is going to be a blast once the game is there. Meanwhile, we will be finalizing the list of action items together with Neowiz to finalize the release date. I’ll let you know once we have more concrete information.

 

Best Regards,
Carsomyr

Enhancement system rework

 

57c935ac4d402

Enhancement system rework (Translation)

 

Rune system

As we’ve informed through ‘From B’, we have plans to provide new experience for players by updating equipments and contents every 3 months after the big update.

 

However, if we continue to update the current equip enhancement system with such time cycle, you will feel the equipments you’ve invested will lose their value way too quickly. Therefore we’ve decided that the biggest problem with current enhancement system is the fact of being unable to fix the main issue of inconvenience players are feeling.

 

To fix this problem,
after the big update that has been planned, current equipments’ ‘attribute change’ and ‘potential awakening’ system will be removed. Instead, the Rune system will take place.

 

Different from current system where you target the equipment itself to be enhanced,
you can now increase your character’s ability by setting rune on your equipment’s groove.
Rune can be developed through enhancement, and will wield stronger ability as the rank of the rune or enhancement level is higher.

 

You are able to remove the rune from the equipment and attach it to another equipment. So you could continue to use the rune that you’ve invested in.

 

Combination of rune based on stats

The type of stats where you can set rune differs into 2 types: Offense and Defence.
And the type of runes that you can attach for each type differs as well.

You can specialize your character’s ability in various ways throughout using the combination of rune that has limited slot.

 

Obtaining rune and enhancement

We see the rune along with the current equipments, as an important method for enhancing character’s ability throughout the investment. Therefore the way of obtaining runes will be through various routes including PvE and PvP, so that players can have easy access to it.

Maintaining the value of current equipments

The most important thing from the enhancement system update was to keep the value of the current equipments players have as much as possible after the new equipment system.

 

To solve this problem,
in other words, to revive the value of synis that player already owns and to enable players to reinvest the amount of investment they’ve made on current equipments, we’ve decided to create ‘Synis store (temporary name)’ in upcoming updates.

 

By using the synis that can be obtained from potential extraction system which will be maintained even after the update, players will be able to obtain the currency needed for runes along with the new enhancement system. Also, the amount of synis that gets extracted increases more depending on the potential level of the equipment rather than the rank of the equipment (such as tempest and abyss).

 

We expect that there will be many changes to the gameplay through this update.
We are at the phase where we listen to players’ feedbacks and polishing the detailed plans.
We will do our best for the players to enjoy the new system without much inconvenience after the update is done.

 

Thank you.
