Erlandir vs Isenhorst in a 10 v 10 capture the flag type mode. The first team to bomb the others statue 3 times wins. Erlandir takes the victory this time.
This is one of two maps in the Battlefield system. It queues up gamers solo or in a team. The system tries to match make as best as possible according to might scores.
Players who queue up randomly get nice rewards for winning. You get a first victory reward for the first win. And you get a random victory award for joining the game as a random player.
The System is designed to reward even the most novice of players. But give the guys who actually are good and can win. Some rewards as well. My first time in I got smacked so hard I cut the game off. Mainly because I had no clue what to do. It takes a little time to get used to it. AlsoContinue Reading
Hello MMOSITE readers and welcome to my Black Gold online open beta review. BLack Gold is snail games latest "steam punk" mmorpg. I was able to grab a booster item pack through a special key give out and got in over the weekend with about 3 days of game play time. Does black gold deliver on fun or does it run out of steam? Please read on to find out!
I started off creating an assassin. One of 12 classes the game has. Actually, there are 9 playable classes, and 3 are not yet developed. You can view them all here: http://bg.snailgame.com/static/race_class/class.html
I am also apart of the Kosh race. There are two general factions. The "nature" side and the "Steam punk" side. The Kosh race sounded interesting to me as they are the empire builders of the nature. I personally
I had a lot of fun reviewing Black Gold. It has plenty good going for it, and some ok things going, and some scary things going too. The review went on way longer than I normally like. But the main reason for that is a lot exist in the game to speak on. This game shares a lot of system from Age of Wushu.
For starters, Path of Warrior is a streamlined version of Wandering Jianghu. This makes me wonder why they didn't do that in that game too. Also this game rewards you for playing well and extensively. So button masher and face rolling isn't the best way to go. Also you have to point most skills. No auto attacking cheese especially on melee classes. That brings a certain level of skill to play.
Skills don't auto home in. So it takes a bit of practice toContinue Reading

This time around the Snail did a great job with optimization. Very little lag exist now for me. And everything looks wonderful compared to the last offering. My major gripe so far is the UI. Which has to mandatory pieces on the right side you can't move. And a lot of the time things are broken with in the UI. But lucky for us we have multiple ways to do things like auto travel. That's broken in the UI so is quick dungeon. You will need to use the literal key's for them to call it up.
How ever besides the super easy AI. I can't find anything wrong so far that a patch can't fix in two minutes. And you guys thought Snail couldn't do anything right huh? I'll do a second look as a sword master today. And From a more advanced level and take a look at dungeons. I plan to get at least up to level 40+. And get some nice WvW in. If you are in game feel free to look me up. Maybe we can get some game time in. Here's to hoping the game lives up to the expectations.
I would like to start by saying thank you to Regina of Snail Games. She provided me with a key and formal permission to review this game on MMOsite while under NDA.

Black Gold is one of those games that tries hard to be different. In a lot of areas it succeeds. But it does have a few problems thankfully this is beta. So hopefully testers point out the issues. So they don't hang around in the finished version.
Now for the good and shining light of the game. First few things I noticed was the detail in the game. Sometimes that goes unnoticed in games. But if you stop and look around you can see a lot going on in the world. It's not really that big of a deal. But you learn to appreciate the little things. And that also helps yContinue Reading

Black Gold is the second game from Chinese developer Snail Games. In this Action MMO players join one of two factions, either the Steam or the Nature Mystics. Each faction is seeking a resource known as the Black Gold, which they use for their own purposes. For the Steam, the Black Gold is a fuel for their machines. The Mystics on the other hand take the Black Gold and use it as a power source for their warlocks and other spellcasters.
This game has an open world concept that is unusual in MMOs. There are no separate zones, and PK is available in every town, every village, every hovel, and every city. There are no sanctuary areas, and the only place you are safe from PvP is in an instance.
The world bosses are very difficult to kill, requiring precise timContinue Reading
