DKO is awfully optimized, no auto run system, no interesting story, should have been released in 07, and they made leveling feel like a chore. If it wasn't for the people in the guild i played with in CA i wouldn't have enjoyed it at all (Defiance ftw !). I had more fun playing Last Chaos than DKO to be honest.
Scarlet Blade is the only game that pulled me from a game like Vindictus, Rusty Hearts, and Gunz. As soon as you begin playing you're pulled in but a really funny story and beautiful scenery. It has much more to offer than DKO with Guild rooms, Auto run to location, Pervert pets, Mech transformation, a great terrain for riding your bike, and PvP.
Haters gunna hate SB because their moms won't let them play this game.
