I doubt Blade and Soul is going to be too bad in the P2W department. They're trying to set up an ESports division in the NA/EU Regions like they did for Korea.

I mean the Esports for Blade and Soul in KR is so popular, players are getting sponsored on this game. Literally. So I mean it has to be somewhat not P2W if the game has an active ESports community.

Good post. This game is just fun, and the pvp isn't forced onto you like WoW. Before anyone starts whining, I'm a current and avid WoW player. I just have come to realize that most WoW players like the simplified format, and SOME struggle with playing other MMO that require you to do things on your own. Or, those without the babysitting filter (trinity). Hopefully, this game will get a E3 booth and presentation.

I watched the anime but wasn't too pulled into the world, but the gameplay does look fun. I'd like to give it a shot when it comes out. Been itching for a new MMO lately.

Currently trying out the Russian version of the game, having fun as a Forcemaster so far. I'll most likely be playing the NA release.

I've played this a bit awhile ago I got around the part with the ghost cave thing after the beach fight thing so not very far but i like the combat mechanics and the character design. Can't really speak much on the story.
I actually hope that the NA release keeps the "korean?" voices and just adds proper subtitles in the game.

The combat mechanics are pretty sweet. The effortless switching from target to target is nice. Also, there seems to be no set "rotation", so you can string your moves together as you please.

Nope. All the countries is now F2P. Japan just switched to F2P Model for Blade and Soul. US/EU Version is also going to be released as a F2P Model.

Until the game actually comes out nobody knows if it's going to be f2p or p2w but if you follow all the other versions of the game since they went f2p the game is P2W and NcSoft does not like anybody saying its P2W and they will ban you and delete your P2W comments on official BnS post. The only companies I know of that do things like that are companies who's games are P2W. Can we really believe NcSoft also when they say their game is going to be completely F2P, their company is down financially and big parent company isnt happy.
