BDO: Gender lock double standards strikes again

Okay. Okay. I get it.

Tits and ass sell more costumes than the old twig and berries but the latest new class announcement is boiling my piss.

Enter the Mystic aka the female Striker…….


I’m actually not against the introduction of the class, the more the merrier in my opinion but not when there isnt an even gender spread.

Where are the male Ranger or Sorcerer?

Players have been screaming out for these since launch but are fed the same lines of they have no plans to introduce them. Why not?!

There are male sorcerers in the actual game and the male ranger was actually in the original teaser trailer.


I would actually give my left nut to be able to play a male Ranger.

As a player who largely prefers to play male toons and who enjoys BDO its a bit disheartening. Especially when it seems the next class on the conveyor belt after the mystic is again female…….


At this point I’m still playing the game……… kind of.

I’ve tried all the existing classes and havent fallen in love with any enough to continue past level 40. I am stuck in the rut where I’m mainly stock piling gold, playing the auction house and doing life skill stuff like fishing.  Hence no posts again.

If they announced the male ranger then I’d be all in and plug more of my free time (and money) into the game but until then I’ll likely stick to stock piling rewards and gold and cross my fingers for some good news.

A Quiet Week on the Gaming front

I’ve been a little preoccupied with real life stuff over the past week or so which has meant my gaming time has been few and far between.

It doesn’t help that I’m really struggling still to nail down a main in BDO which is making it hard for me to push on past the first few nodes. I’ll need to just bite the bullet and get on with it. One thing I will say is I notice my little band of real life friends who are playing are pretty much treating BDO like a single player game at the minute.

In other news I picked up Shadows of Mordor in the steam summer sale.

Its a game I played at my brother in laws but never bothered picking it up myself so I’m looking forward to getting stuck in.  I absolutely adore anything LoTR and this game is no different. Kind of makes me pine for LoTRO but the lack of pvp and weird player animations/graphics always make me stop playing after a week or so. Maybe one day they wont get the license renewal and we will see another developer pick up the franchise……..

Hopefully have more to say on games etc soon. I blame the fact Scotland is actually getting decent weather for a change so have to make the most of it.

Until next time.
