DBOG review from a player who played DBO since 2011. I haven't played since Daneos was the project leader and I started to play Verdant's version since early June, so I have played for a little over a month now so I have a good feel of this version now. The biggest changes here that i've noticed since The Dark age of Daneos's Terror on DBO is that 1. Brown boxes are gone and have been replaced with Silver boxes 2. Upgrading now has 0 RNG and is now 100% success rate 3. CCBD items and Dragon Ball wish items are unbound so you can sell them. I think all 3 of these changes are very good and were all needed. When I found out about these changes, I was excited, I thought gearing up was going to be much easier and faster, boy was I wrong.
Lets say you download DBOG today and start playing from scratch, no gear no friends to help you no nothing. Lets say for example it took you 2 weeks to reach 60 cap, okay now you want to do PvP, oh but wait, that requires gear, and a lot of it. Okay so you want to do PvE content to gear up, that should be easy right? Wrong, not only does that also require strong gear, but CCBD is really the only thing worth spamming. TMQ has same rates as when Daneos was leader and UD 6 takes 2 hours for 1 run with bad drop rates also. So that leaves for CCBD only, and you think you can do CCBD fresh off leveling to 60? No. You have to farm, and farm a lot, DBOG is 90% farming and 10% CCBD. Now you can just farm your azz off and get somewhere doing that, but really, who wants to farm for 1 month straight before doing anything in the game? I would rate DBOG as decent, it's not bad but it's not good either, I will still play this game but not really feeling this game anymore currently and will be taking a break.
