About Rahmakapala

  1. You can freely express your opinion. It's your right. What comes to thread that has been changed, I only adjusted the tittle. Nothing more. The other content is and has stayed the same. From the get go, I have only spoken about one single thing. The fact that Blade and Soul has a plenty of pre-existing cosmetic items, both costumes and hairstyles, sunglasses, helmets, and other additions that could be made available with minimal effort to be used by both genders, and thus would satisfy the needs of two minor customer groups.
  2. I did read your post and drew my conclusions on your tone, the same way you did from my original tittle attempt. However, this thread is intended to be about constructive criticism. Also, while you claim that only thing NSOFT is doing for US / EU version is localization, that is not quite true. In addition to the translation, some of the Blade & Soul quest lines have been adjusted / entirely rewritten to be better suited for western audiences. For example discussed here: In addition to that, I am assuming we have gotten few costumes that Korea, Japan and China don't have, eg. the fan designed contest winners Night Luna / Regium Corvus. Also, when I was browsing the Korean costume selection a while ago I didn't see the Dark Angel / My Angel in there, not in identical version - so I am assuming that NSOFT is adjusting some additional items they offer in cash store. Speaking of Korean costumes, I did see there school girl costume for males / school boy costume for females, and bunny girl costume also made available for males. If you wanna see them, I looked them up here: http://bns.inven.co.kr/dataninfo/gallery/ So what I am saying is that obviously NSOFT is doing more than translation of the original to better appeal the US / EU target audience. And if that is the case, I am hoping that if we, the fans can make our voice heard - maybe they would be willing to give us a small bone? Even if it's only in the cash store items?
  3. The androgynous looks would be awesome, yes. To be able to make "effeminate" looking male characters, or tough female characters. Not only in costumes, this would give nice options for other cosmetic accessories. How about having more long hair options for males? Short hair for gals? Removing the gender lock would bring plenty of options for customizing the characters!
  4. So basically you are saying, it has been always like this and it suits your needs, so it's out of question to consider, even in small scale? Like you, I have played MMO games for last 8 years. I have plenty of experience from WoW, ESO, Rift and Tera. I am well aware that in mmo industry, the needs of the large scale target audience guides the majority of content. However, what I am now suggesting (in light of the development team's choise to give the Dark Angel / My Angle costume in cash store) that if they were to make similar choises, two of the minor dissatisfied user groups would get more out of their game experience. This suggestion doesn't take anything from the majority. Instead, it would only give more to those that are left wanting for something more. What comes to my comparison of Saints Row 4 and Blade & Soul, I was comparing the customization of characters. Regardless of the game type, the costume design and providing additional skins don't have wide ranged effect for the game economy. To recap: I am not asking for ALL of the game skins to be made available for all characters. It would be a tall order for minor gain for the NSOFT. However, I am only throwing suggestion to future content / cash store items that are made for US / EU releases. The content like Dark Angel / My Angel, or Back to School costumes. (That costume had the reverse gender option in Korean version. It was possible there to buy sailor fuku for Male character and pants + coat version for females.) If there was non genderlocked versions available, it would be relatively simple solution on how to satisfy the needs of 2 minor customer groups: players that want skimpy/sexy costumes for males and players that want practical, conservative options for female characters.
  5. Just to add my two cents on the widely spread "sexy" costume debate from the other side of the coin. I play with male characters. However, I am also quite frustrated about the costumes - because outside of male gon, male costumes are very conservative. The costumes often have long coats or baggy pants to cover thighs / buttocks. If something is showing, it's arms / or in few rare cases the abs. I would really, really love to have more sexy / cute variety for male characters. (and yes, before anyone mentions it - I have "my angel" for my jin. It's awesome costume.) However, if there are players with female character that would prefer conservative baggy pants / long coats, and player with male character that would honestly like to see more skin/ tighter clothes... would it be impossible to remove the gender lock to costumes? Or give non gender locked versions to cash store? No, I don't know anything about coding or animation design. However, to give you an example, in Saints Row 4, all the costumes and cosmetic items had no gender lock. It was a game similar to Blade & Soul in that the player had option to adjust the body type to certain decree, and there were a lot of costumes/cosmetic packs you could buy as additions to the game. But like I mentioned, there was no gender lock. I could make a male character and have him wear leggings and tank tops, miniskirts, stockings and what not. However, at the same time my friends had option to dress their female characters into more pragmatic "fighter" look. As I see it, there are plenty of serious and pragmatic "fighter" costume designs available, but they are for locked for male characters only. (Ofc, there are cute options for lyns). Would it be absolutely out of question to solve 2 issues at the same time? Give the non-sexualized looks for female characters - and the sexy and cute options for male characters, at least through future cash shop items?
  6. so, are all costumes gonna be like this?

  7. New outfit releasing in KOR

    If only we could this same look for males! It's a cute costume - bring the sexy and cute for male characters as well!
  8. Back to School

    Yes, "My Angel" is awesome costume. Just like I mentioned. I love it to pieces. But I would still very much like more options. School girl costume is a time honored classic after all. And what about looking sexy in a classy way? Gimme other options as well. I take them all! In this game, the lyn male costumes are mostly aimed at humorous angle, with the "fat" and "panda" type costumes. The gon? Well, to be fair gon have the sexiest costumes available for all male characters... but even those have only couple costumes that show of tight pants. And to my worst luck, the jins are like mormons. Always wearing long coats and baggy pants. You never see their thighs, never see anything. What if I want to ogle my cute dude's butt? Please, I would love to have more sexy outfits. That's all I am saying! So to finish of my rant, I would love the other school costume options! Gimme chance to dress my dude in a sailor fuku!
  9. Back to School

    Actually I already have bought it have been wearing it for 2 days. ;) It's awesome. I love it to pieces. But only one cute costume gets boring. I am now begging for *options*
  10. Back to School

    I would love that school girl uniform for my male jin. Honestly, I saw it during head-start when I was browsing Korean costume options and it was like instantly, "I want this." The thing is, at the moment the male costume design is very conservative. Female characters have sexy and cute outfits showing lots of skin, but those playing with male characters have long coats always covering the buttocks and no skin showing - or if anything shows it's the abs / arms. *sobs* What if I want something cute / sexy for my dude to wear? At least, give me the option to wear female costume skins. It isn't like it's difficult adjustment to make.
  11. Show off your characters!!

    My Jin male Blade Master. I like how short he is. ^^
  12. My Angel Outfit

    Honestly, this outfit is awesome. <3 The second I saw it it was "shut up and take my money!" More sexy / skimpy costumes for male characters, ploz!
