Also known by its acronym BDO. It's a popular Korean MMORPG that's developed and published by Pearl Abyss and Kakao. It has some of the most beautiful graphics that one could find in the MMO genre and can be described as photorealistic. Simultaneously, it also has one of the best character customization in the genre. You truly could make your character look unique with it. Furthermore, it also has an action combat system, which makes combat and fighting mobs fun and enjoyable.

Unfortunately, that's all that's good about it since the demerits outweigh the merits. BDO has an infinite grind without any end. You will be tediously doing the same thing over and over again. It also has an annoying gear upgrade system that's reliant almost entirely on RNG or chance. And the p2w elements. It has a lot of them ranging from pets that automatically collect loot for you to items that help you with your gear. Just to add to the hilarity, you can actually get better rewards from just going AFK instead of actively playing, therefore a lot those players in the towns that you see are actually AFK.

And the toxic player base, which is one of the worst parts. If you're going to play this, prepare for a lot of casual racism in the chat. BDO is filled with neckbeards, weeaboos, and other weirdos. It's one of the most toxic communities around. And if you want to see worse, try the BDO discord. It's filled with people spamming each other with racist memes, anime porn pictures, gore, etc.
Person A: Have you tried this new MMORPG Black Desert Online?

Person B: Yes, it has pretty graphics and fun combat, but unfortunately it has infinite grind, an annoying gear upgrade system and one of the most toxic communities around. Pass.
