  1. Average F2P player reaches 450+ AP now

    I have actually run into several people who had more AP than I do, yet ended up dealing less DPS, and still those are the same people who would kick me from a dungeon if they could. Short of League of Legends, I haven't seen a community this terrible anywhere else, and I'm not far from quitting, at this point. People tell you to "gear up" while kicking you from all the lucrative dungeons you have to do in order to get the money to "gear up", it's disgusting.
  2. Average F2P player reaches 450+ AP now

    AP aren't the problem, the community is. People ask for ridiculous AP requirements and will kick you if you don't fulfill them. Some people will leave a LFP group for Heaven's Mandate that is full of HM 7-9 players, if there's a single HM1 in it. On top of insulting the HM1 player, that is. As if there were any chance to fail that fight, of all things. There are so many assholes in this game, it's incredible. And a big chunk of those that are above 500 AP do their utmost to make sure anyone below 500 AP can never catch up - or may even quit the game, based on getting harassed and kicked left and right. I recently started anew on EU servers, having played on US servers for months beforehand, so I already know what kind of douchebaggery to expect, but even I am still sometimes negatively surprised by the community. It's a wonder this game still gets new players on occasion at all - the community seems intent on keeping them out.
  3. If I could rule NCsoft...

    I do agree that Vipercap was a great event - it was helpful for literally EVERYONE. The current event seems pretty awful.
  4. Tidal Treasures [Your Feedback]

    Worst event yet.
  5. I find it disheartening that people would actually defend this RNGfest. The former event was good - it rewarded you for playing, some would get vastly superior rewards than others based on luck, but nobody left empty-handed. This event, on the other hand, won't just leave unlucky people empty-handed, it'll even leave them poorer than they were, because upgrading (breaking) weapons costs gold. So, unless you pay cash, you can work your ass off running dungeons and lose money as a reward. More punishing RNG is just what this game needed, right?
  6. I'm expecting the same thing, but hoping that it won't be the case. At least for the duration of the currently on-going event, daily challenges should remain unchanged.
  7. Normally maintenance times don't bother me much, but scheduling an 8 hour maintenance in a way that it covers the whole day for Europeans really shows how much the EU part of the community means to NC.
  8. This is insane, if it's true. If it's not a paid service but just something support may or may not do for you if you ask, it should be available to everyone or nobody.
  9. Unable to connect to server....

    Isn't just you. I got stuck in a portal earlier so I had to quit the game, and now I can't reconnect to it. EDIT: Seems to be working again, now.
  10. 03.july eu server lag

    I have also experienced severe ping spikes since yesterday, on Greenhollow. I used to have a pretty constant ping between 90 and 110, until yesterday, where it often spikes up to 150 or even 200 today. It feels worse than it sounds - I had gotten used to a constant 250 ping on NA servers, but the lag spikes suck all the fun out of the game for me.
  11. Tower of Summonity!

    Bow to the glorious SMN masterclass!
  12. Cold Storage?

    Sounds like you were tricked by some jackass into joining a group just as they killed Frostmane, rendering your daily dungeon run wasted. Try again tomorrow.
  13. Yes, give us a proper kick function please... the fact that we still don't have one, while the game is overrun with hackers, bots and exploiters is, quite honestly, nothing short of disgraceful.
  14. Just thought I'd let you all know. With the LFP function, I ended up in Cold Storage with 4 SMN bots. They'll actually fight and pretend to be real people, by turning a bit, occasionally moving elsewhere, and, if the boss fight is not started, typing ?????? in chat after a while, and initiating combat on their own if the fight is still not started a short while after that. They'll also bid on items - even outbidding each other on occasion. Considering that they were always standing inside of each other, moving and speaking in complete sync, I wasn't able to report them all - but do keep an eye out and throw them their reports, just in case NCSoft might lift a finger eventually. Considering I saw the same speedhacker still speedhacking after ~3 weeks, I doubt it, but hey, doesn't hurt to try.
