  1. The Farewell

    Farewell and good luck. Your video guides are/were always outstanding.
  2. Level 60 can kiss my buttocks

    Oh, you mean people like you. You do play the game, right? I've never spent a penny on the trove. I once wasted NC Coins on some additional slots which was a total waste. Anyway, this update is crap . I could have chosen a dozen different things to complain about, but getting knocked on my ass at the TOI gate after I had accepted the quest just pissed me off even more on top of everything else. ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤. I used to like this game, but I fear this patch is the beginning of the downward spiral into oblivion.
  3. Can't use the ton of experience charms I've collected on my alts until they're level 60, can't do TOI, can't do [insert item here],and no, NCSoft, I'm not buying vouchers, not one, none, nada, take your POS update and stick it in your collective ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ orifice. My daily chores are now login, check trove, move to next char, repeat, repeat, repeat, then loiter near a marketplace for 2:45 and collect my login rewards, Anyway, there's so many things wrong with this update that there's no wonder why employees are jumping ship.
  4. Heaven’s Mandate & Cold Storage Antique Items

    This is what happens when you try to throw everything except the kitchen sink into a single patch. Can you spell mis·man·age·ment??? So, "every effort will be made to ensure it doesn't happen again" is not good enough. How about fixing the problem instead of making pathetic excuses. Stuff like this HAS happened in the past and is still happening, so every effort is not being made, period.
  5. eminence exp charms

    Here's a thought: How about rewarding a reasonable level of experience for dungeons and combat and get rid of charms entirely? It is the stupidest mechanism for leveling that I've ever seen in a game. On topic, the charms are account bound so farm them on a higher level alt and use them on your noob as soon as you can. If you have a noob. I've got charms in my vault I can't use anymore.
  6. If you want to chill, and I mean really chill, shut down bns and play another game (I spend most of my game time in gw2 at present), watch a movie, go for a walk, or find something else to do, otherwise bns will sterilizing you while masquerading as a brain-melting virus.
  7. Improving my specs to make game smooth on Ultra

    Trying to max performance and quality at the same time is pointless. There's always a trade-off, and maxing one is going to make the other suffer, up to the limit of the physical technology. Throw a lot of expensive hardware at it and you might get great fps on ultra settings, otherwise it's a waste of time.
  8. Can we get our old DC back?

    DC = Daily Chores. I can only play (stand to play) about an hour a day. The changes to DC take too long for me to finish on all of my alts. So yeah, I want the easier (less time consuming) DC back too.
  9. How do I start this game with my graphics card?

    If you don't have integrated graphics then the gtx card will be used by default. Otherwise you can either disable your integrated gpu with device manager, or set the gtx card as the default with nvidia control panel.
  10. i want to play

    You can't run the 64-bit client on a 32-bit OS.
  11. Yes, they must do this, there is no other solution. If they don't do this, and only this, it proves they don't care about fair pvp. </sarcasm>
  12. G-rated forum for an M-rated game could be part of the problem. Or not. There's always subreddit, if you don't mind being downvoted for expressing an honest opinion.
  13. unreal 4 pc and consoles

    I'm not an expert on UE4, but I've read nothing that supports this statement. I've heard that most of the UE4 API is locked to a single thread, and calling functions from other threads will crash the engine. Also, the game logic cannot be multithreaded except for simple asynchronous calls that use a copy of the game data and can only return a single value. Some of the limitations probably exist because DX9 requires all rendering to be done on the primary thread; moving to DX11/12 may provide some inherent improvements, but a game engine is/should abstract that away and provide a consistent interface, which means either going to the lowest common denominator or layering additional functionality onto DX9. As far as my comment about consoles, as a player I'd want reassurances that a dedicated gaming device and general purpose pc are going to play well on the same server. My concern isn't cheating, so I shouldn't have mentioned xigncode. I believe that most games separate consoles and pc's onto different servers, whether it's for real disparities or perceived ones.
  14. So you need to spend a couple of weeks farming draken cores. In the overall context of things, that's not much of a sticking point. I, and probably everyone else, has been stuck on something that took substantially longer, at some time or another.
  15. [SUGGESTIONS] For the Future of B&S

    BNS has no future. I expect that NCSoft will pull the plug in the next 1-2 years and reallocate Team Bloodlust to more profitable endeavors. I understand that mobile games are the big money makers right now (why in the heck you'd want to play this genre of game on a mobile platform is beyond my comprehension).
