  1. Free Plat From Destroyer bots.

    I think sum and kfm bots (yes, these exist) themselves will get to plat since people in gold won't be able to deal with them doing perfect counters/escapes and combos easy.
  2. How many people we are losing per hour due to people facing bots in pvp, getting bots in dungeon parties and the like? Its so bad that NCSoft should stop servers and do maintenance to clear them out ASAP.
  3. Once again, game in emergency

    Yes, exactly. I can tolerate occational spam or bots farming in instanced dungeons away from sight, but when they infringe on our endgame activities, its crossing the line. If nothing will be done fast by the time we get to lvl 50 there will not be anybody left playing this game.
  4. Summoners should be banned from arena

    NCWest is apparently skipping balancing patch for next update. Since it buffs summoners (they apparently need that at lvl50) it would spell disaster if released here for lvl45.
  5. Aren't we getting january balance update with next patch? it buffs destroyer damage, which kind of moves the class more to this direction where if opponent messes up its dead but idk how it will help otherwhise.
  6. Current class numbers in gold+ disgust me

    It is actually sad, Because irregardless of balance summoners are too popular and facing too many of same class is cancer.
  7. Kung-Fu Master Arena PVP videos!

    It feels like KFM is very one-dimensional tho, survive until you have your cooldowns to perform 3rf stunlock.
  8. Losing Faith

    People are getting better at pvp. On my new char I even saw animation canceling, 3rf stunlocks in...silver. I am not the best player, but ELO matchmaking really makes it enjoyable, so many close and nail-bitting matches. I think hongmoon talents will make lower skill brackets more fun as it is too rock-paper-scissors when some combos are easy to execute but opponent does not have equally easy counter.
  9. Opened the chest 23+ times still nothing. Are drop rates reduced for higher levels - I am lvl 41. Would be willing to buy it or demon maw from shop, but its not being sold, NCSoft does not want my money.
  10. Gold Spammers Everywhere

    I think this would only work if it would be idiot-proof run-and-forget tool that would auto-update blocking patterns a la AdBlockPlus plugin for browsers, that would become so widespread that NCSoft would be forced to ignore people running it as they would not afford to ban so many legit players. Solution being widespread is necessary for health and future of the game, its not much of a benefit if you can get it fixed but others don't know how, get tired of spam and leave.
  11. What is the drop rate of Dark Sandstorm?

    Got it after 26 kills.
  12. What is the drop rate of Dark Sandstorm?

    What lvl were you?

  14. Gold Spammers Everywhere

    In this case NCSoft should sell gold and max lvl characters itself and problem will be sorted.
  15. Gold Spammers Everywhere

    There is nothing worthwhile to spend the gold on in this game. AFAIK you only need it for crafting/transmuting/appearance change but you get enough of gold when leveling and you have dailies at top lvl that would be sufficient but upgrading your char would be one time thing only. Crafting? Nobody that buys gold would do it for crafting profit, most likely bots themselves would undercut everybody then. As such I do not understand why this problem exists in this game at all.
  16. Gold Spammers Everywhere

    Not really, computers are fast enough nowadays. The only real problem is if this solution is not done by NCSoft but as a third party anti-spam application running alongside the client, game guard will need to be taken care off like its done by bots so it does not flag it and this is something that will never allowed due to legal reasons... Unless it would fall into acceptable gray area like some gamedevs turning blind eye to modding for games not explicitly supporting them. Nah, better do nothing and let game become irrelevant like every other Korean MMO.

    Filtering by words won't work. The client can show Unicode characters, so they can replace some characters with lookalikes from Cyrillic or Greek etc. This would work 100%: 1. Remove common emoticons 2. See if character distribution matches that of normal language, e.g. if there are too many special characters like (\ or digits or some mixing of different code pages mark this text as suspicious. 3. Strip special characters and compare message to previous one to see how similar it is with fuzzy string matching algorithm. If so mark text and suspicious. 4. If client has too many suspicious messages in time period, block and ban it. Funny thing I could code foolproof solution myself...
