  1. Get it right!

    That actually sound more like an ISP/Hardware/Software issue, not the servers. Maybe your connection is a bit suffering because of corona and too many people in your street/town are watching 4k videos or whatever.
  2. yoo Developers! When do we nerf BM?

    yes should have, but you always will have classes which counter other, that's not a myth its part of the kits of every class, especially if you want to balance for PvP and PvE. The only possibility to make all equal is to give everyone the same kit. Of cause, it's not only rock paper scissors, your own skill also plays a big part. If you know how other classes set up their combos, you can find a way how to counter it. Well yes back in the day's Summoner, Destro and Bladedancer were op, that changes every skill patch, for some classes more for others less.
  3. Get it right!

    Here is an interesting comparison of the EU/NA client vs the KR client: The dips in performance are way higher in the EU/NA client. This is what NCWest should try to achieve for our client so that it will run on the same level as the Korean one. Another Problem in our Release is, that the servers are crippeled with the induced global ping, stronger servers and a better NETcode would do mirracles in terms of performance, because the sync between the server and the client would be better and not bottlenecking the client to wait for the sync or information from the server. This server bottlenecks are noticeable when you lower the graphics or use the potato mode, its not the optimisation its the server
  4. Premium Transformation Stone... Crystal?

    I guess its this Armory Premium Transformation stone which is already in the game since an event in January? Maybe now they are not only an event currency anymore and transform out of normal Premium Transformation Stones and/ or transmutable. Would also assume that this is 100% correct
  5. stop the ue4 rework, ue5 is there

    NO NO NO NO NO .... don't stop UE4, it's a big NO NO.... I don't want to wait another 5 years to get the UE5 patch when UE 6 is getting released!! Finsih UE4, get it optimized (wel yes I am an optimist!) and than start working on porting it from UE4 to UE5 xD
  6. yoo Developers! When do we nerf BM?

    Well ye BM is strong now, but PvP is not balanced at all, so you can't just blame BM, but his Air-Combo for example already got nerfed in KR, we are getting the same patches in 3 months. PvPis like rock paper scissors, which class beats another class. Of cause, you can also beat the class which counters you but this is skill-based. To begin with, if you don't learn every class for PvP, there is no point in even flaming for nerfs. Dunno why you didn't mention destroyer with his barely all-time cc immunity, his parry spin, same as BD. Summoner with his cat pin, FM with his frost root. The key to being good at PvP is to know what you are capable of with your own class, but you also need to know what other players can do with their class, so you can think of ways to play against it. If you are not willing to improve yourself then don't talk or even bother about PvP and just go 6vs6 Zerg. But still, keep in mind, its still rock paper scissors, you as a paper get owned by a scissor of the same skill level and you own a rock on your skill level. People can also say nerf WL with his SB in PvP, or the Thrall, or the root...... And to be honest if, raging and crying is ruining others' game experience, even more, salt is everywhere! PS: There is no point in even reaching out to NCWest, because they can' do something for balancing. NCWest is just a sort of Sub Company of NCSoft and TeamBloodlust (owned by NCSoft) is the developer. NCSoft tells TeamBloodlust what to do, not NCWest. NCWest is just publishing for EU/NA and can just ask for some regional changes in terms of costs, items and translations. Everything else is dictated by NCSoft. So no matter how hard you flame, cry and stomp the ground, NCWest will not and can not do something about it xD Feedback send to the devs by NCWest is going straight into the Dumbster. Korea is doing the patches and we get them 3 months later. ye it is, but well every class has its own perks, so play your class if you like the playstyle of your class. Dunno why ppl always try to show an e ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ with the most damage dealt, just because of their class Back in the day's Summoner had been Nr.1, at another patch, it has been Fm. It's kinda in every MMO or Moba, that certain classes/ champions are op, while others are either too hard to master as a normal player, or just low at all. Wait for the Korean skill patches who are tested at the moment in KR, we should get them in 3 months. Maybe we are lucky and get some balance, as far as I know, they extended the balancing patches for another 2-3 weeks, so atm KR get weekly balance changes
  7. Get it right!

    Hi, I am fully aware that NCWest, as well as NCSoft, are just publishers and that TeamBloodlust is the developer, but TeamBloodlust is owned by NCSOFT. NCWest is in a position to talk with the devs to get things done. For example to get rid of old items and systems in the client, get some optimizations done, or request a better damage calculation, get the translations hardcoded instead of a filter exchanging it, and so on. There are a lot of problems which can be solved, it is possible to optimize UE3. How is it possible that the game is not using the Blade and Soul Nvidia Profile, how is it possible that even game profiles from other games work miracles on shuttering. I mean if NCWest would do some more inhouse testing on their internal server with more than 1 or 2 people and actually not to use gm weapons and use normal gear, maybe just with an unkillable buff so they won't die. There are a lot of things which can be done if you have a very motivated team! At the moment they try to milk the whales and I can understand that, because fewer players = less income = they need to get the money from other sources. Ye fancy animations for the homepage are nice as well, but an interactive homepage would be totally sufficient, if u tour through the Russian site u will see the animations and videos if u click on different classes for example

    Hey NCWest, I really don' want to hate but, you really need to beef up your game. The performance is horrible and mostly results in lazy programming with keeping legacy code and just adding up even more code, so the client is just blown up. You really should speed up the Unreal Engine 4 Update to get a fresh new client, without the old unused items, systems, and skills. I could bet that we still have the old level 45 skills in the client although they are not even usable anymore. But the game still "checks" on them. Despite that, even the Russian Blade and Soul Homepage is designed with more love and effort than the NCWest version. As I said I don't want to flame or to be rude, but the truth is you need to beef up a lot, even in terms of staff, which actually care for the game not only as a paycheck for themselves as long it's running, but to actually improve the game and increasing player experience. Because in the long run, you will earn more money with a big player base which also cashes casually than only milking the whales, who will quit the game as well at some point. With this said, I hope you don't screw up the Unreal Engine 4 and burry the game. (Don't bring us this frontier version)!
  9. Geht das Pay2Win geheule wieder los.... Ich will hier nicht den Whiteknight spielen, dafür hat NC$oft zu viel versaut, aber... Du kannst in BnS nicht Winnen, sondern Progressen, das ist ein Unterschied, darum ist es wenn schon Pay2Progress. Ja in den letzten Monaten ist NC$oft sehr aggressiv im Shop unterwegs, leigt aber daran, dass sehr viele Leute das Game gequittet haben, weil es für sie von der Performance unspielbar war. Dadurch hast du eine kleinere Playerbase -> weniger Casual Casher (Premium only, doer 20€ im Monat) -> selben Kosten die NC hat bei kleineren Einnahmen. Ja die hätten schon längst das Game ordentlich optimieren müssen, und nicht diesen Cross Play Frontier Server fabrizieren, hoffentlcih wird das UE4 Update für die Live Server nicht derselbe Müll sein, sondern das Game neu auf der UE4 codiert (ja ich weiß cih träume, weil NC es versauen wird). Pay2Win wäre es, wenn du dir ausschließlich im Cash Shop eine Waffe/Schmuck kaufen könntest, die besser als die aktuellste Max Waffe/Schmuck wäre. Ich komme ohne Probleme mit meinen gammel Twinks durch F8, bis auf die neuste Dungeon, aber naja, wäre traurig, wenn man mit Mini Twinks da einfach durchrennen kann. Und als ob du in andere Games nicht aus Gruppen geschmissen wirst, wenn du zu geringes gear hast, egal obd as WoW, FF oder sonst was ist. Und selbst wenn du dir dein Gear ercasht, wirst du spätestens nach dem ersten run aus der Multigruppe geschmissen, weil du nichts hinbekommst. Ist halt nciht alles schwarz und weiß. Und mal abgesehen davon, dass dieses geheule immer nur ne Ablenkung/ Rechtfertigung ist, dass man selbst nich schnell vorrankommt. Ich selbst hole mir nur Premium ab, hin und wieder mal 100 trove keys wenn überhaupt, meistens kaufe ich die sogar mit Gold ein und ich komme ganz gut vorran mit fast max gear und nein ich suchte nicht 24/7. Ich komme halt vorran wie es geht mal schneller mal langsamer. Gewinnen, tue ich ncihts wenn cih was in die Trove schmeiße, vorallem, da man aus der Trove kaum noch was gutes rauskriegt, Was meinst du wie die Geld verdienen sollen? Es gibt diverse Modelle, einmal die pay2Progress aber Free2Play variante, womit du geld verdienst indem einige wenige Spieler das game für mehrere Tausend Spieler mitfianzieren, die nur F2P spielen. Oder du gehst mit dem Pay2Play System, dass du monatlich ztahlen musst um spielen zu können, dann gibts nur ncoh Cosmetics und quality of life Sachen im Cash Shop. Das reine Buy2Play System gibts kaum bis garnciht mehr, ist meistens ähnlich wie das Pay2Play. Ich weiß nicht, was du für eine Weltvorstellugn hast, aber es gibt nichts umsonst auf der Welt. Meine 5 Cent zu diesem dähmlcihen Thema und falls das einer Von NC$oft liest, anstatt irgend einen Müll ins game einzubauen, liefert mal eine optimierte Version mit der UE4 ab, dann kommen auch Spieler wieder wenn das game gut spielbar ist, dann habt ihr auch wieder bessere Einnahmen und könnt diesen Pay2Progerss .... hust "Pay2Win" ... Modus weider runterfahren und es kommen dann sogar ncoh mehr Leute wieder ;)
  10. Just disgusting @ new patch notes

    Than google about DX12 on Windows 10, it doesn't fully include DX9, so if a process requests code from a dx9 dll it has to emulate DX9, that is why my game ran better without shutters after installing DX9 Runtimes separately from Microsoft and also installing all the C++ and .net frameworks. For C++ and .NET you are right, that it doesn't emulate, but with all the different versions there might be some improvement which helped the game running better. I am defenitly not a white knight for NCWest, because in my oppinion they destroy the game because of listening on people who cry about everything. Like this dungeon is so hard I cant clear it (because I don't have a clue on what I am doing and I don't know the mech). Instead of makeing something of their guide menu CTRL + F NCWest decides to make the dungeons braindead that you can ignore the mech completely (eg Shadowmoor). From all the versions of BnS ours is so far the easiest, because of too many ignorant and lazy people crying about everything what causes then to work for their equipment, instead of getting it for free. Take a look at the future F8 changes Easy Mode for braindead and just 4 Hard mode dungeons left. In my opinion they just should have left all the Hard Modes and make them more rewarding. For example like in Korea they have Easy mode (our current normal mode, normal mode (our old normal mode before the mech nerfs) and hard mode with the original hard mode mechanics. For the players playing the game it would be much wiser to get some information from google YouTube or whatever about mechanics and play the game like its intended (it will make a lot more fun if you know what you are doing instead of just run through everything like a zombie). But well this would actually mean that people have to learn something, this can be kind of hard, so people decide to get angry on everything. Try out other MMOs than you can cry about P2W or long grinds, like WoW grinding 1 hour on one spot to get 1/3 quest items, blade and soul is nothing compared to it.
  11. Nobody said you need to have max equip, just do your thing and progress as fast as you can. I am not rushing anything just continuing step by step and I am barely at max gear atm. So for the new stuff comeing, I won't make a big deal out of it and continueing of doing my thing xD
  12. Just disgusting @ new patch notes

    Well the game came to a state where the client/ the engine / the coding can't handle all the new content, too many bonus effect, amplifiers need to be calculated. This game was created around 2008 and released 2010. At our Release with the starting content in Moonwater there hasn't been any problems, you were able to go with 24 man on Poharan with all players enabled and settings on max. Just Blackwyrm with 50+ people was a pain in the ass. xD I am on an i5 6600, 8Gb Ram, GTX 780 and after installing all .NET Frameworks and C++ versions alone with DX9 for Windows I have no freezes or shutters in any raid. The FPS are low but I can get along with it. So if your computer is missing some files to run everything properly it have to emulate the files, this causes shutters. In addidtion to that try to switch Nvidia Profiles for the BnS or BnS Korea, just a quick google search helps (don't take "EvilDoUsHarm's", or "NeroKoso's" FPS tipps. There are couple of other guides on youtube, reddit or here in the forums. Just open your eyes. It's very unlikely that the devs will make any efford to continue optimizeing the game (it got already better compareing it from half a year ago), because most of them are working on the Unreal Engine 4 update, as far as I heard they are doing it from scratch, so it won't just be a graphical overhault, thats why this takes time. So instead of complaining you can do your research on your own. Can't say much about the p2w aspect because I still can't see any p2w here in the game, its called pay2progress, although the actual unity casher boxes are going already a bit too far. But I agree that putting these new unity casher boxes in F10 from day 1 is kinda strange. But for this complainment in total, this is not a huge dps increase as you think, same for the max pet thing, it has some slight increase and some other benefits, but its considered a luxury upgrade same as max soul, so thats why it's expensive, since they introduced soul and pet. Now you are complaining because you can't get everything from day one without putting any efford in it, but if they give max gear for free you will complain, about the game beeing too easy and booring. This is still an MMO, so for upgradeing your equip you need to farm, we are pretty lucky with guaranteed upgrade path here, maybe try BDO, BnS Korea or China, where your upgrades can fail, so you have to redo everything you farmed. Or WoW where you have to grind for 1 hour+ just to drop 1quest item from a mob. People are too spoiled here, most of the time everyone is expecting to get everything for free or without efford. Although with the recent buffs to everyone since the aweakened update (already would have been enough) and the additional nerfs to dungeon and raid mechs, people still complain that it's not easy enough. You can run most of the dungeons without even careing about mech anymore, thats a shame! People get lazy and spoiled, in addition to that they complain about everything what they don't get for free. This max upgrades are not a must have, so relax enjoy the game and progress as fast as you can, if you cash you will be faster, if not it will take a while, you can progress very fast with the events, like this one atm, where you get a massive amount of oils or pet packs for minimal efford! My 2 Cents for this! :p
  13. RNG is killing game

    Well RNG is part of the game and we have a very softened version on this, try RNG in Korea or China, this might kill you. Getting everthing with the right stats would speed up everything, but it also would make everything boring, because you will reach max stuff very fast and be bored because you will have nothing to do anymore. I was farming 2 weeks straight for my mao neck, until I finaly got all the tokens back in the days. RNG is part of quiet every MMO and if you complain about this soft RNG here, try out other versions, or even try out other MMOs WOW, where u can grind 1 hour for 1 item a certain mob can drop for your, or BDO where u can fail upgradeing your equip and you have to go all over again. We can actauly call ourselfs lucky with this soft RNG we have, my 2 Cents.
  14. Removing Slow clunky walk mode.

    The trick is, not to get in combat if you dont have to. You usualy just get stuck in that mode if someone is still in combat, so instead of leaveing your teammates alone, just turn around and kill whatever is hitting your teammates. They fixed the combat stance bug with thralls and cats long ago, this was a major problem, but haven't had that bug for half a year.
  15. Just Linking my Thread here aswell, maybe someone from NC will stumble over it here, at least I hope someone does xD
