Blade & Soul Player Base

Recommended Posts

Blade and soul player base is getting lower all the time, I really love this game but eventually if ncsoft ain't gonna do anything about that the game will "die", there is tons of people that who perhaps like RPG but don't know about the game existence or so, I never hear about blade and soul until one of my friend told me a year ago, i was playing another rpg and i told my friend he should join me he did but then he said "this game sucks let me show you good one" then i met blade and soul, it was a year ago, the point is that the game isn't famous enough and a lot of people cannot even know its there, people who could play this game a a lot people who just didn't had a chance to enjoy blade and soul, the game need Commercials something that will let people know its there.., it is a problem people nowadays use anything they can to block and commercials possible, but that is just one thing, i really like this game and it will be pain in the ass if the game will just stop eventually, because i really enjoy it...

I haven't played this game in a while but I agree, one thing I really think they should do is bring the game to steam but only when and if ue4 comes (hopefully optimization is better). I have friends that simply won't touch the game because it isn't on steam so I know many other people are the same way.

I still see adds on sites, but its typically only on the ones related to gaming.

I would like this too, but i hope they do a better job at it than Tera did, cause for some weird reason, if i use the No-steam Tera version, it runs like a charm, the moment i launch the steam version of it, performance is horrible, even with the same settings and tweaks.

And UE4 will come, they just delayed it a bit, i rather they delay it but give us a good optimised game with as little issues as possible, than rush it.

Unfourtunetly i dont see them doing this. We asked them to do so even before release, i admint thou it was not a needed step back then it would have been 100% a quality of life thing but nowdays as the player base is declining with every update it would keep the game alive a lil while longer.

 

On the other hand the profits would probably decline on the short run cause think about it one casher pays 10000 €/$ for Trove without steam they only have to pay taxes but if its on steam (i think it was 30%) they have to give fees to steam aswell which would be contra productive. After all NCwest is a company driven by profit to my liking a bit to much on the short term thou but at first it would be a profit decrease.

 

Another option would be make it more expesive to buy stuff via Steam but i dont see steam allowing that.

The problems bringing Blade & Soul to Steam are getting people to actually play the game, with many knowing how Pay-to-Win it is, and NCSOFT being willing to pay a fee to have their game on Steam.

 

Making it Available

Spoiler

 

Making the game available on Steam will certainly increase the player count by adding a new client to play on, but with the current reputation that this game holds, it might backfire and make more people dislike the game. The fact that it's a huge Pay-to-Win grind is discouragement to even try the game, and Steam users can be some of the most picky game consumers in the world when it comes to what they want/ not want to play. Additionally, with more people on social media continuing to harass and bully Blade & Soul, Steam will serve no more than another, stronger platform to hurt the game as much as they want with its horrible review system.

 

Adding Blade & Soul on Steam sounds like a great idea, but where its reputation currently stands, this decision could be catastrophic.

 

 

NCSOFT Paying the Fee

Spoiler

Publishers and developers who decide to add their games on Steam have to pay 100 USD, which isn't so bad because it's recoupable. However, the lot of us knowing how greedy NCSOFT can be, they might see that as something not worth investing into because they have their own client for the game, which is free. There might be other fees I'm not aware of, but this is the most that I know.
