i dunno, i just need somewhere to rant
Grand Piece Online. It’s the best one piece game, better than Blox Fruits, at least. But is being the best really saying something in terms of one piece’s track record on roblox? Almost every game is a cash grab bandit beater… and GPO is no different.
I bought GPO 3 years ago. I recently returned to cash in on the recent update(always get legendary chests), and I fed my alt a Mera, only to realize…
DAMN. GPO SUCKS. ASS.
- Devil Fruit Storage
…Are you serious Phoeyu? Did you really HAVE to make this paid access? Why? Of all things you could have made robux only, it was THE THING THAT MAKES ONE PIECE, ONE PIECE! This point has been made countless times, though.
- It’s like he doesn’t actually expect players to be able to beat the bosses
“If you can’t solo it, and there are no clear instructions on how to fight the boss, it is trash.”
Reminds me of old MC captains spamming 20 beams. At least that was POSSIBLE to fight back against. You can’t solo any bosses in the game without cheesing or being way higher level than them from the get go. I guess you can’t really expect AO quality bosses from an obvious cash grab game. Moria is probably the most balanced boss out of all of them, and that’s ignoring the auto aim door thing. At least a sensible player will try after a few deaths luring the zombies out of the area and fighting Moria head on, or trying to get rid of the shadow. But what are you expected to do against Borj? HE LITERALLY TELEPORTS TO YOU WITHOUT WARNING! Ryuma is a bit more balanced, but his teleportation attack has little to no warning, too. At least make him charge it for like 1 second before releasing it so players can geppo away.
- Finding islands is too much of a pain for what it’s worth
You know how AO sometimes has these huge annoying pointless fog clouds that just ruin your day? Well just imagine those same fog clouds, 24/7. You cannot… I MEAN CANNOT GO TO ANOTHER ISLAND WITHOUT WATCHING A YT VIDEO.
First, Log Poses have to be obtained from the island it leads to, which kind of defeats the purpose. Okay, fair, but why did you have to make it almost impossible to know where the next island is? There isn’t even a map, no NPC, no ANYTHING! Even islands that are close by are impossible to see in the fog, and it gets even worse at night. Just remove the fog and the island finding problem is solved!
Reminds me of rough seas.
- Boss drop chances are overrated
Blox Fruits can get away with it because the bosses are easy and simple to kill at the required level to get their quests. GPO can’t get away with it because I assure you the average player isn’t gonna be able to solo a boss(atleast with the required stats), and even with a party it goes from hard and tedious to just hard. Boat loads of HP, boat loads of damage, each fight takes like 4-5 minutes, and all your hard work for…
- Dressrosa didn’t really hit that hard
Cmon. Where’s the family? Where’s Dellinger, and that flower guy with the longsword? All that’s there of the Doflamingo family is Pica, Bellamy(not really), and the guy who can swim in anything(but he doesn’t even have his devil fruit…). It could have been a boss rush island and that would be cool, but the island is carried by its events. Factory kind of just feels like a long droning process, too.
Positive things I have to say about the game:
I like the colosseum update. It’s a sensible and honestly reasonable way for players to obtain legendary and useful items(boss grinding used to be the only way, and that was impossible without a legendary fruit, and to get a legendary fruit you need boss items… see the problem?), but with Legendary Chests, the problem of getting a good fruit is solved, and you can even buy weapons and gear with Legendary Chests! They are officially the new currency of GPO, and it’s good.
At the same time… it sort of feels like old players have been spat on. We spent months, some a year or two trying to get a legendary fruit. It took me four months to get a zushi and another 3 to get a mera then a magu. After that I quit, only to come back because I wanted to get those free stonk’s.
and uhh I guess that’s all
Not much positive to say about it. Oh, the LEVEL grind is easy, just not the “getting the stuff you actually want” grind.
pointless gpo rant
