Actually. I kind of like Edel. Most new characters, after Sieghart, although Sieghart too himself are rather much unneeded characters.
But as far as play style, balance, flexibility, and overall generals between Sieghart and Edel, I feel these two are the best characters when it comes to fitting GC's original mechanics and at the same time giving it just it's own style of diversity, to the point I wish Edel was one of the earlier characters, so that they would have been easier implemented characters when it comes to relation to story and everything.
But, since they practically scrapped the whole Kaze'Aze chase idea, everything pretty didn't make sense when it came to story and everything, so. By then, pretty much starting with Sieghart, GC just died.
I would have even revered it better than Elsword, and I seriously can't play more than 2 dungeons in Elsword, I get extremely bored especially when there's no one to play with.
Ah well, KoG does what KoG wants.
Anyway, as far as new games go, (as far as MMOs / online multiplayers in general go) there aren't many that's "new" from between 2012-present. The only game I anticipate to play when they finally release it for NA servers is Blade & Soul.
But other than that, when I have time, I only play Mabinogi and S4 League.
Which aren't exactly new games what-so-ever. Mabinogi, being produced and released in Korea as early as 2004 (It's a 10 year old game).
S4 League, I'm not exactly sure when it came out, but it's been enough years definitely to say the least that it's pretty old.
