  1. You will find several posters here generally referred to as WKs or white knights. They have taken it upon themselves to defend this game rabidly and will fill any post mentioning the game's flaws with their own negative feedback directed towards the OP or anyone who shares the viewpoint of the OP. They live to argue and tell you to stop being lazy and asking for things to be handed to you and remind you that every game in the universe has the same problems or worse than BnS as well as your need to "git gud" and all your problems will be solved. It's generally best to just ignore them and ju
  2. Couldn't agree more. This game does nothing to prevent trolling behavior and AFKing through a dungeon and still getting credit. There absolutely should be a way to prevent toxic players from being in your party. If you are toxic, you should have trouble getting groups so perhaps you are forced to re-evaluate your behavior. You certainly should be able to pick who you party with, even in F8 and not seeing blocked players until you are already in the ready up zone is silly. You must either live in a world filled with unicorns or don't play much in group. Toxic players being allowed
  3. Yup. It's unfortunate that the dev team and NCWest localisation team can't seem to capture the feel of progression from the leveling part of the game. Rewards were dealt out more regularly and you got the feeling every day of accomplishing something even if you didn't spend all day playing. Now it's just endless grind to get itty bitty progress in progressing your gear and even smaller amounts for HM levels. It's been said many times that monotonous, repetitive tasks that give no meaningful progression makes a game feel like work. Not working toward and regularly achieving goals but just
  4. The rampant spread of poor odds RNG throughout the game mixed with the gold sink aspect of many upgrades is a disheartening thing to those without unlimited money to throw at the game. Either through gold seller sites or more legitimate means the P2W "elite" have been given many opportunities to rise above the peons less generous with their monetary contributions to the game. I still can't figure out how creating massive gear gaps that have destroyed other games will work in NCWest's favor, especially with the low intake of new players and massive attrition of current ones caused by these an
  5. If you want to support population growth you need to do 2 things: Listen to the community enough that they don't all head for the doors every time you make a boneheaded decision with the game or make seriously anti player moves in the name of making the company more money in the short term. You will make more from happy customers than ones you bend over a barrel. You will have player churn, it's inevitable that players will leave. You need to be making the game more accessible for new players. Players who hit the level cap and run smack into the grind/pay wall are likely
  6. If they can't even get rid of ppl blatantly speed hacking, packet manipulating, DCing to avoid loss penalties and all the other cheats running rampant in this game that in just about any different game would reward the baddie with instant perma bans, do you really expect someone at NCWest to look at your pictures and be able to determine they are Chinese gold farmers running multibox? It's almost as if some NCWest staff are actually responsible for supplying these cheats and feeding the gold farmer market.
  7. If you dont have a viable main toon yet you had better wait until NCWest shifts the starting weapon and level as NC has in other regions. The pain of starting from scratch in this game is why the community continues to dwindle with no fresh blood coming in and actually finishing to the end game. If you are so easily discouraged that you quit during early beta you will most likely not find the current game to your liking.
  8. I'm pretty sure that talking about new MMOs coming out is just like most negative feedback you see posted here. This is a game many people love or have loved and seeing it head in the direction it has tends to tear them apart inside. They put a lot of time and effort into this game and the thought of walking away from it all seems hard but players posting about other games want the folks behind this one to know they are serious. Likely posting about upcoming competition to this game makes them feel empowered that there is a choice and they are not beholden to this game. Sure the ones they
  9. I think most of the hate is due to the game starting off so strong and with near zero P2W trappings and having a very positive following of the players. They made tons on premium subs and cosmetic items and had a good stream of new content coming out. Then gradually it all changed. Upgrade paths and leveling became ridiculously grindy and NC started wheeling out materials and XP boosters in the shop to make it easier for those willing to pay. The gold exchange made it easy for those with deep pockets to get the best gear with minimal effort and time. Exclusive items were introduced in eve
  10. A personal dps meter that can help you fine tune your build? Good idea. A dps meter that allows the toxic another reason to be asswipes, well...
  11. A compelling PVP experience is generally the catch all end game experience. Unfortunately due to the way pvp has been handled in BnS there really isn't much of a community for it. Lots of folks don't like pvp per se, but there are many ways to make a competitive experience fun without making certain players and classes feel unnecessary or bad to have on your team. Sadly NC has only given the most bare bones approach to it and there isn't much hope of this changing this late in the life cycle of the game as it requires actual character balancing which has never been a serious NC concern.
  12. Not sure I understand why ppl even reply to the trolls and rabid WKs that always flock to every suggestion/complaint type post. These guys think they are actually earning points every time they defend the game. It's like some holy mission to them so it's best to just post your suggestions and ignore negative feedback from posters that come in and say stuff like don't be lazy/git gud/ its fine the way it is/stop making complaint threads. You will eventually know them by their tags and be able to skip right on past everything they say or even better just put them on ignore. They are only her
  13. A certain other MMO themed around a particular colored arid environment recently made it's first baby steps towards P2W and the players ofc lost their shit. Creating protest banners and marching in the street. http://kotaku.com/pay-to-win-protests-hit-the-streets-of-black-desert-o-1784949509 The issue revolves around exclusive cash shop items being sellable at auction laying the bedrock for the P2W player to jump ahead of folks not willing to make such investments. We here of course would laugh at this as our game went full force P2W months ago and we didn't get to
  14. At least with the rate the big spenders are abandoning the game lately they may finally make the gear upgrade and leveling process less punishing to try and attract new ones. The way it is now a whale has to spend quite a bit just to get into the game before they even start getting comforts like outfits and assortments of pets. It's sad that no-brainer things like in game GMs to discourage bots, cheats, spammers etc. are something this game will never have no matter how bad it gets.
