@muker Thing is Lost Ark is only for Korea at the moment and no news about EU/NA servers.
You have to do some very annoying stuff to actually play the game.
If they keep their promises i think it will compete. Albion fucked up by changing the whole game during testing when in paper it should be a game with always risk to be ganked to a game basicaly you can PVE very safely and even 100% safe with HCE since they removed an hidden mechanic that some players used it with creativity to give risk even in safe zone.
For what they are promising i think they have no direct competitor, horizontal progression + progression based like conditions rather than the classic grind experience / spells with environement interaction. I think this is unique enough to claim to have no direct competition.
