  1. Hi,


    in Silverfrost expansion we will most likely be getting HM version of our regular TAB. There are two versions of this skill worthwhile for PvP, F1T5 and F3T5. However its not clear how the changes work:

    * What the new effect Removes Snares does that Removes Snares on use doesn't for F1T5. How does this would interract with Warlock snares that gets reapplied continously.

    * Remove charge disable on deflect and reduce cooldown of ram for F3T5 - I guess this evolution is supposed to counter FM.

    * How much the 400% defense actually reduces damage, its the same effect on HM Emberstomp. 80% increased speed and increased AoE range on F1T5 seem tempting but classes it would be good against, warlock and summoners have charge disables that will need to be dealt with by taking F3T5.

  2. None, I am close to calling it quits on PvP. Now destro bots somehow rotate your character when they grab you so you cannot counter grab at all with 2. Its one thing fighting automated programs within limits of combat system (except assassins already had to fight BS) but its slowly getting worse.

    I didn't seen so far KFM bots in EU.A single one,could be just my luck thu,but in EU bots are like none existent above 1650 ELO.At silver there is some Destros.

    I have seen 2 or 3 CD hackers but just that.They are rare too,or atleast late gold/early plat.Just seen BM and Summoner but I think there was third but don't remember what it was.

    I have seen few macro users.I know what god alike KFM can do and I can recognise macro users.Low minded people but they are rare too.


    Overall the lag is the one thing ruining my experience in arena.99% of the people I fight are actual people with actual human errors.Like it is suppose to be.

    This is KFM bot I run into a while ago:


    dropped first round due to stupid play but once you know its a bot (look at him rotate in 1:58+) and you learn what he does it should be easy win, depending on class.


    Btw on EU I run into summoner bot every day. People might not even realize its a bot, but telltale signs is that he does not care about his cat, only faces you and attacks all the time either moving towards you or SSing and does not use dandelion. In low ELO  they don't use phasing exploit I think.

    Yes, yesterday i looked into arena just like cracked egg.


    Edit: Before week iam realy not bad PvPer, but now? Meybe many others just can perfectly timing, can unlock me stun every time, can be imune for everything.

    Yeah, sadly KFMs can do this legit. Good KFMs can kill you from one stun if you do not have tab, but they need to have good ping (even macros won't help here) so in this case its better to play cautiously against all KFMs and maybe be a coward and hug the wall so they can't get max agility with QE. Its really annoying to play, when you know one your mistake will cost you the game.

    i agree there is tons of macro destroyers and its not fun at all to 3v3 is absoluty nightmare destoyers tag and you die in 1,5sec.

    yesterday i even saw destroyer who jump on me and start doing ani cancel before his char was on the group so when i got pulled to him(was spaming F like mad whole time to get out of the daze) i was -40% hp.

    Destroyers in tag can kill anybody within an ally grab/grapple duration. Stunlock combo is rather easy to pull. Hard to know what happened.


    What is more concerning to me is cooldown hacks. If somebody just adjusts them slightly, its hard to tell, because nobody keeps in their head all of enemy cooldowns, especially since most people do not know all classes so well, so something happens you go wth was that - lag, hack or nothing out of ordinary. 


    This is why I have a habbit of running NVidia Shadowplay when I PvP set to record last 3 minutes in RAM, so if something fishy happens I can save it and examine, 

  5. Ha, I am too stuck at 1800 with my destro as I cannot pass the wall of assassins in EU ladder. And no bots at that level, only people, so no free wins. Its like this, I get a row of summoners, I gain ELO, then row of assasins and lose ELO, rince and repeat.

    oh boy...  i reported this guy at the 27.02.2016 and ncsoft told me they will take a look at him. how long do they need to ban him???

    Too long. Lets do rough numbers to see how much this bot has farmed: 7 days x 24 hours x 10 games/hour x 100 beans = 168000 beans or 2520 soulstones, 680g. Maybe less but still, why NCSoft is allowing bots to farm up hundreds of gold before they banned??

  7. Its annoying that this problem still persists. I play on EU, no bots in tag so far, but somehow I fought a destroyer bot here at ~1800 rank. Really fast annicancel, but predictable pattern for easy win next round. Oh and bots are now so clever, using normal names, easy to grab titles, even joining a guild (only need 30 coppers) and now I see they prefer to use Talus uniforms. yet their predictable pattern and non-human like movement clearly shows that they aren't players.

  8. Logging everything will take too much space and processing time, its far simpler to check not what bots DO, but WHY, e.g. RMT.

    All gold farming bots are farming gold, and sending it away to mules/buyers, while running around with garbage gear no real players use, like non-evolvalbe wheel weapons.

    When gold is transferred to non-account character with mail or market - ban both accounts. Bonus if receiver is a gold buyer. 

  9. Interesting, so their system autoflags your account and you get banned, actual person looks into, sees nothing wrong, unbans, but noone on their support escalates this as an issue so the false positive can be removed?

    In my opinion banning for third part software usage should be re-focused first on bots, which have something in common - do not invest in their characters, running with wheel non-hongmoon weapons and such. When game is clear of this plague can look into macros and other crap, but for that better to rely on user reports in pvp with videos like these summoner exploiters, as publicity of such bans would discourage anybody thinking of doing something stupid like that.

  10. They are glass cannon, so not sure what they can do vs current FOTM classes with NA/EU latency. Probably WL will be dead when caught without needing full stunlock once people will learn how to avoid their wombo combo.

  11. One additional thing to consider, have you ever been in a position where somebody would have reported you as a bot (like 1v1 PvP as a destroyer in low ELO) or did faction quests and such that are being farmed by bots/gold sellers and tagged something they also were attacking or attacked bots there and could have been mass reported by them.

  12. Jaesung is using WTFast when playing on NA servers from KR, should he be banned too?

    Fact is, BnS PvP is very ping dependent and contrary to outcries on forums etc. its not a NCSoft servers problem, since ping reducers help - therefore showing that the problem is on the route to the servers, which NCSoft cannot control.

    And you don't see the problem that lvl50 skillbook available to lvl45 who either need to be rich/lucky in  game or rich irl to get the gold for it ingame? To me it looks like a p2win trick from NCsoft.  Majority of warlocks will not have this book.

    I don't care about p2w debate, only the huge barrier of entry for arena, which is supposed to be equalized, but evidently won't. This is bad for alts, bad for people that do not dedicate all their time to this MMO and bad for newcomers.

    What I can tell you now, if you don't want to buy the skillbook for that amount of money, wait until we get Silverfrost Patch, this will open a vendor that requires you to have 1.3k Achievement Poins and 70 Naryu Silver to buy the book. You see? The supply & demand is something you need to research before bashing other people for being a kid, kudos to you my friend. You won literally nothing. 

    Exactly, I am arguing about lvl 50 and balance relying on these skills and HM levels. People that QQ about summoners or whatever without grinding XP, achieves, skillbooks will be in exactly the same or worse position as now, which will result in game bleeding more players, until it will become very niche with same faces playing/wintrading with each other.

    I've beaten people who had legendary skills in arena, while I still don't have mine. How is this p2w ?

    My problem with is that at lvl 50 you need to have them and as much of hongmoon levels as possible to compete, because game is balanced on that. If you do not, game has no balance, your skill won't ever be able to overcome somebody having twice your skillpoints and more immunities/dps etc.

    So if your character reaches endgame level its not at max potential in pvp until you grind OR open your wallet.

    Yeah I fought one of these it was a premium member and could F and avoid all CC's and killed me in 2 attacks now I wouldn't mind but I'm a damn Blade Cancer and each time they ignored my damn Iframs.


    Looks like the bots are getting smarter and messing up arena even more I'm sick of losing to Bugs, bots and blatant hacks. 

    Destroyer bots now like KFM bots use knockdown/grapple counters and parry/counter breakers so they more hard to PvE than Junghado now.

  17. There is nothing good to watch. Top PvP streams either KFMs or Assassins which all are getting boring already as it seems samish and even play the same opponents all the time if they are diamond. Mid skill players speak in german/french/russian. Low skill players PvP vs bots which nobody wants to see.

    There are also less people watching since less people are playing, because of various reasons.
