troveshop – Bless Online strives to balance its PvE and PvP communities

troveshop - Bless Online strives to balance its PvE and PvP communities

This past weekend the Bless Online dev team sat down with the community in Seoul to talk about the state and future of the game. Wading through the translation of the event, the gist seems to be that there’s been some discontent by players regarding some of Bless’ PvP features, and the dev team is working to remedy that.

Basel Gorge and the Siege of Strasbourg appear to be the two biggest hotspots of controversy. The team is adjusting both to handle the proportional interest by the players and to up the drop rate. Concern is being given to balancing the game’s PvP and PvE offerings as well.

An update is on its way that will increase Bless’ level cap to 50 and add a new species and region to the game.

Aeria Games to publish Bless Online in the west on troveshop

Aeria Games to publish Bless Online in the west on troveshop

It’s happening, people, it’s really happening. Bless Online is heading to the west, for real, after months of speculation.

Aeria Games has signed on to publish Bless in both North America and Europe, according to Steparu. There is no timetable for the import as of yet, but it’s exciting enough to know that the MMO is on its way overseas. We’ve known since February that Bless had ambitions to release in NA and EU, although we had previously heard that Daum was going to handle the game in the west.

We’ve been keeping an eye on Bless’ development in Korea, including the title’s server merge, its world bosses, its open-world PvP, and how it is structuring its endgame.

troveshop | Bless Online AMA gets all of the questions, has few answers to give

Those anticipating the arrival of Bless Online in the west are still coming to grips with the news that the game will be published by Aeria Games in North America and Europe. To mollify any concerns, the Aeria team assigned to Bless took to Reddit yesterday for an AMA about the incoming title.

Topics in the discussion included questions over pay-to-win, server strategies, comparisons to Trion Worlds’ handling of ArcheAge, censorship, localization differences, possible PvE worlds, the business model, and the starting roster of classes and races. However, if you are looking for concrete answers to most of these, you will come away disappointed. Many of these questions were met with variations on, “We don’t know as we just started working on the game...
