I've played a lot of Asian MMORPGs since 2005 and forth - Lucent Heart, Lineage 2, TwelveSky 2, Metin2, 9 Dragons, Silkroad Online and many more. I must say that those older MMORPGs look better than Lost Ark, their art style has more "soul" despite their game engines and graphics being outdated and inferior, somehow they still look better to me. And those games' combat feels better, even if it's just watching your character passively auto-attack mobs for the first 5-6 levels of the game before you learn some active abilities.D2 and PoE are better games than Lost Ark and while their combat is satisfying, it's mostly spamming one skill that you heavily invested into. I'm not gonna say that Lost Ark's MMO cooldown rotation trash is much better, but at least it's more varied. Lost Ark is also a generation ahead in terms of animations, effects and sound. I wish there was a better game built around its combat system as the current game feels more like a chore completion simulator.
Maybe that's why it's widely popular and getting a sequel while the original will exist side-by-side. Not to mention the fact that PoE was universally praised, granted, I don't play it anymore and don't plan to play 1 or 2 when it releases, but pretending like the game is not good is delusional. If you don't think the game is good, that's something else, you should point it out, but stating it as an universal, undeniable fact is entitled.PoE is not really a better game.
why do people keep telling me this?and you seem to think they're all shit
Everquest. All three variations available to play(P99, classic progression, and live) all have their pros/cons. P99 fans will attack you for suggesting this.are there any MMOs that you do like?
It downsamples well, so even on a mediocre PC it runs well. I haven't had any lag-related issues so far, and know plenty of people who play the game via VPN/GeForceNow with limited bandwith. I've had a few occurrences of rubberbanding, but that happens like once every blue moon and only for half a second.Is the game a resource and internet speed hog? Lotta lag? Obviously a hotspot ain't gonna work.
Except it isn't. Plenty of skin to see. Literally have characters run around in the thinnest string bikinis you can find.
PC Games: Will there be any differences between the different versions of the game?
Source: Bandai Namco Mike Zadorojny: There will be a few minor differences between the Japanese and Western versions of Blue Protocol. The main reason for this is that we are aiming for a “teen” rating for our market so that Blue Protocol becomes a title that our friends and family can play together.
There are certain things that we need to change for this goal, but things like bosses, open world experiences and such are the same in all versions.

Lost Ark censors new Artist character to hide thighs and “fit western norms”by Brandon Orselli on January 3, 2023 at 10:16 AM, EST
Publisher Amazon Games revealed the Lost Ark roadmap of content for 2023, and with it confirmed they’ll censor a highly anticipated player class arriving in the game.
The new playable class (featured above), the Artist, is portrayed as a young girl with a skimpy skirt that almost reveals some gluteus – however Amazon says this doesn’t fit with “Western norms.”
As such, they’ll be censoring the digital female character with “shorts” and in some cases even “adjusted pant lengths” or “tights” that cover her thighs entirely.
“Nothing gameplay-related will change for the Artist Class, but some skins will be modified to better fit Western norms,” Amazon said in the Lost Ark roadmap. “Specifically, skins with short skirts will have shorts added underneath the skirt, and other skins will have adjusted pant lengths or tights added.
“We will be working to preserve the original spirit of the skins when applying these changes to ensure players will have a variety of compelling customization options for this uniquely versatile class.”
This isn’t the first time Amazon has censored Lost Ark to better fit in with whatever are now considered “western” norms.
The publisher previously covered up female cleavage and even in some cases gave characters black skin to address nonexistent claims the game lacked “representation.”
I think that was how she looked in the Beta or something before the release of the game. And that IS actually a creature from the pit!Oh god. That link to the western censored version is god awful. WTH.
FUCK! ITS LIKE A FUCKING CREATURE FROM THE PIT!!
Can it be fixed with patches?
You're missing vital context though. Why would they pick her out of a hundred other side characters?They "fixed" the glossy skin look since, but still turned what was supposed to be a Korean-looking character model into some sort of Mexican:
