  1. Hey all, During HMZ for Blade Dancers, you're prompted to use RMB before you can use your rolling typhoon, whereas in other regions (Mainly Japan, TW, and KR), F is simply available for use during HMZ if you have at least one wind orb, illustrated in the videos below. Would it be possible to mimic what's present there and allow F to be used in HMZ if at least one orb is present? Japan: Go to around 13-ish minutes. Vs NA/EU: Notice how he needs to use RMB before enabling F, where as Japan automatically makes it available. It would be really nice to implement that change, and I don't believe it to be too difficult to execute. Thank you for your time. :) Speras, Spirit's Rest
  2. Hey all, What would your thoughts be on perhaps implementing some form of birthday goody box for your character? Like, for playing B&S for one year you'd get a shmexy costume that's identical to all other players, maybe a different one for premium players? Besides that, it would be nice to add some materials, gold, that aren't RNG based but rather guaranteed for the player. Since it's a once per year event, I'm sure to combat spam or bots trying to take advantage of it you could perhaps base it on game time, character profile (reports against them, in-game behavior). It would be a nice incentive or reward for players to continue playing, and perhaps show some care towards the player-base that has spent countless hours farming and dealing with RNG Misfortunes, lag, crashes, and what not. I dunno, what do you guys think? I don't seem that much harm in it. Maaybe the box could contain a guaranteed... I don't know, a costume, 100 gold (Varies, I'm not too sure. Make it higher, lower, your call), some upgrade mats. XP Charms would be nice), lunar flowers/plants?) Best, Speras.
  3. Hey all, What your thoughts be on enabling the transferal of your upgradeable jewellery (true oathbreaker necklace, earring, etc...) from one account to the other, but perhaps place a limit on how many times they can be transferred? Some people may dislike their class, but have too much gold invested in it, and heavily discouraged from rerolling into something that suits their playstyle, so enabling this would make rerolling or just focusing on another character much easier. Furthermore, I've seen that upgradeable jewellery can be resealed in the game, or perhaps this is an unwanted bug or whatnot, but what would your thoughts be on that? Best, Speras.
  4. Hello, I've tried downloading the new patch, but I get an error message stating: "Cannot Download file. and it says the error comes from thing to do with a number 00033256.upk.dlt.zip. Is anyone else getting this, or is it just me? Any form of help would be appreciated, I'm trying to get into the game, and I can't seem to log in. Best, Speras. Furthermore, it says something to do with a cookedPC file. The error is along the lines of just cannot download file.
  5. Let's put PVP aside, as I know that BDs are strong in arena and open world, that's not the territory I wish to cover. They're annoying, aerial combos are annoying, phantom grab is annoying. I get it, please don't remind me, I'm one myself. Yet, why is it that late game, we're no longer viewed as good DPS? Nearly all four man dungeons want a summoner, force master, and Kung Fu master for group buffs, yet no one will ever want a blade dancer for DPS... Are we simply that bad of a character? How do we become more appealing in other people's eyes that we're good DPS late game? Do we need the hongmoon lightning draw skill? I always play a lightning build with flaming scourge... Also, what would your thoughts be on reducing Sunder's cost to only 1 focus as opposed to 2? Would that be op as jesus? or would you think it's a healthy buff for blade dancers? Best, Speras.
  6. Dear all, For those of you who watched the livestream, did they ever bring my question into account? The one about gameguard? If so, would you mind telling me what they said about it? If they didn't... well, oh well then..
  7. When will you please address the Gameguard situation, and the fact that it's still locking MANY players from entering the game? I beg you, I can't even log in- I missed my faction and friends, and I want to log in! Can you please remove it and implement something else that's more efficient? I want to give you my time and effort!
  8. Obligatory Gameguard Thread

    Just a friendly reminder that mods are still ignoring this thread and that many of us STILL aren't able to log into this game. I just want to log in to this game, I don't like seeing 4049 on my PC. I beg you, this is unfair. I miss my legion and my friends in-game. Can you please respond? I know you're out there, mods. Anyone, someone... Please communicate with your player-base.
  9. Greetings, I am fully aware that some (many things, actually) things are out of your control, and that as of now, many people aren't necessarily happy with the state of the game. As much as you'd try to embrace silence and refuse communicating with us, your forums aren't a nice place- They're practically flooded with complaints. I understand that maintaining this isn't easy, it really isn't. But please, we're the ones playing this game MUCH more than you are, and some of us spend as much time on it per day as you guys do. Since you're practically plagued with complaints, and I really, REALLY hope NCSOFT wants the best for this game (Let me be optimistic, damn you, I want to believe they care about us), please let us help you, if we can. We know what the community would want, and primarily, before anything, including resolving the bot problem, the failgua-gameguard issue, and optimizing the client, we would beg you communicate more frequently with us. Silence won't help you, and isn't solving the problem. So please, what I'd like this thread to be is a polite, respectful address to NCSOFT of issues, that we, the players, would like to have resolved. Let us help as well! Many minds working together beats some! Some of us still care about this game, and we want to give you our time, whether it be through fan arts, grinding dailies, browsing a happy forums where not all posts are about raging and QQing, and pretty much unleashing the potential that B&S deserves. We want Blade and Soul, not Bot and Sunflower. So here's at least my list of things that I'd like to see rectified in this game, and I'd beg others to voice their opinion as well. Silence won't help us either! 1) Please communicate with your player-base and community 2) Please address the issue occurring in Soulstone Plains. We know there are bots over there, don't you deny it. 3) Remove Gameguard (I beg you for this one) 4) Try and update the "submit a ticket and we'll look into it" style- Perhaps voice a thread about specific complaints and assign forum moderators to help them on the spot? 5) Slow down the release of costumes and new content- Some of us still need time and money to upgrade our gear properly D: 6) Perhaps lower the cost of mats needed for crafting and progressing through the game? MTS are relatively expensive for the new player or the inexperienced. Try offering alternate routes to crafting the hongmoon pellets, they are causing guilds to disband and useless, unneeded drama to ensue. 7) Optimize your clients! Stutters ain't nice! and of course, finally. 8) Fix the bot problem. If gameguard does indeed, by some means, work, it's really, REALLY, REAAAAALLLLLY inefficient- The troubles it's causing to so many players is not worth the few bots you catch using it. Anyone else have any ideas? Please remember that silence won't help us. The more we voice our concerns, the clearer the problems NCSOFT have to deal with become. (Even though they're very, VERY clear.) Kind regards, Speras.
  10. New Idea. Real Players with power

    Greetings, community. @Oxygen, I actually like the idea of Game Sage, and here is my proposed way of trying to implement it in the game; since each server is technically divided into two factions each, Crimson and Cereal (Sorry, proud Crimson here), how about you have each side... in a way, elect their Game Sage? While granted, that will open doors to bribery and some kind of votes and potential forum posts with (VOTE ME FOR GAME SAGE PLOX), I'm sure if we can somehow come up with ideas for an organized, in a way, "election", we can in a sense ensure that each faction choose the gamer who would represent their concerns and report to the moderators of Blade and Soul. I don't know, what are your thoughts on this, community?
  11. Suggestion, Becuase the GM Asked Me Too

    Oo, some details would be nice man... You can't go around saying this stuff... Gettin' people all curious n shit'
  12. Obligatory Gameguard Thread

    @NCSOFT, might we please get any form of update, information? Pretty please? Silence really isn't working D:
  13. Obligatory Gameguard Thread

    Hey hey hey! Mods! Care to respond to us any time soon? Or wait- are you guys "We're working on it" as usual? Some communication would be greatly appreciated! Feedback's as loud and clear as it gets yo!
  14. Either the moderators running this game are just mean or heartless, don't give a flying nyerk, or maybe both together. The "Obligatory Gameguard Thread" has reached almost 12 pages of people BEGGING NCSOFT to remove the Gameguard, alongside the occasional White Knight saying "Everything's fine. shut up and play xDDDDDD." I think NCSOFT has this innate hankering to look for these White Knights and base all company decisions on their suggestions, while ignoring all's legitimate concerns. I still have faith that the moderators and those in charge of running this game were gamers themselves at one point, and have a healthy, functional brain; when 12 pages of people are begging for a failing anti-hack device that "has provided us with a fair amount of Data against hackers." (Hime... *ahem* *ahem*), and previous mods state "Your feedback is very important to us! We dearly appreciate it!" bla bla bla, we expect that our concerns be heard. You see, the healthy, rational being would look at this state "Hmmm, perhaps this gameguard thing just isn't worth it you guys- Let's just drop it and stop people's complaints. I mean, bots will be bots, yeah?" Whereas NCOSFT's decision is "No, screw you, the money you've put in and your premium time that's slowly dwindling down- We'll (I bet she's giggling while writing this) further improve and update Gameguard..." ... ... ... And then silence... What silence? The silence of the moderators who would seemingly rather go through so much rather than answer our concerns legitimately.... But you see? No. I want to have faith that people at NCSOFT know their piece of crap software FAILGU- Sorry, Gameguard, is indeed not working, and that something is holding them back from removing it.. At least have the decency to tell your community what's holding you back from removing Gameguard altogether. Or you know, just do your usual NCSOFT magic and ignore us. And you know, perhaps rub it onto your legitimate playerbase that's trying to help by having them gaze at a twirling Namsoyoo stating that everything's fine and new COSTUMES ARE COMING OUT! HOLY CRAP THIS GAME GOT SO MUCH MORE INTERESTING, I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WE HAD OTHER IMPORTANT PROBLEMS AT HAND! Or you know, have the dreaded happy cat state that's things are being investigated and drop their usual ":P, ^.^, =D" for that white knight that seems to misprioritize the importance of things to be addressed in a game that many want the best for. So dear NCSOFT, No, we're not interested in new costumes... No, we don't want more costumes... No, we don't want new content just yet, or a new class... We'd like some communication- Some words of explanation as to why crap is the way it is... Some kind of compensation for your premium members who can't log in and are losing the money they worked hard for and put into a game they enjoy, and of course, the biggest impossibility (harder than doing bosses in SSP as melee), a simple apology... But of course, that's just wishful thinking... What are the chances they respond to me anyways? I'm just another flamer and QQ'r- This game's fine... Everything's alright... New costumes will save us, right?
  15. I would want Gameguard to be removed for the following reason:- I have 3 slots left to get my regium Corvus, and wheel of fate is about to expire in a few more days... I get error 4049 when I try to enter my game, and it's frustrating when I can't play the game I love. When I accessed the game from outside my university, game was literally unplayable, and when I attempted my daily Mushin's, my computer felt like it had opened the ninth circle of hell, and that the almighty wanted to drag me down... I have friends on my server (Spirit's rest) and I enjoy my conversing with my faction and putting on a good mood for everyone. FPS Stutters are near unbearable, and I've disconnected 3 times over the course of 2 hours... and no, don't point the finger on the internet... Because all of the above (except daily spin) were caused after Gameguard were introduced... Since moderators claim that no voice is left unheard, here is my voice being put out there loud and clear. I, Speras, do not want Gameguard present in my Blade and Soul, and I never consented to the download of third party software when downloading Blade and Soul.
  16. Dearie, I don't think NSOFT is compromising their security by merely telling their player-base that they (maybe) have a contract with gameguard, and that's why they can't discontinue it for the meanwhile... I'm not asking them to compromise their security or anything... Heck, they're the ones asking me to disable firewalls and turning off anti-virus to allow gameguard to work...
  17. You want us to rest assured that no voice is left unheard? Well then, let's make our voices loud and clear. Start a simple forum post, moderator... A very simple post asking your users to vote- 1) That you disable Gameguard permanently 2) You "update" Gameguard and "increase its compatibility with other systems" (Yea right) 3) Keep Gameguard. And I assure you the results will speak for themselves- but you know what? Chances are that 1 will get 99% of the vote, and that is as clear as hearing our voices can be, and you know what NCOSFT's resolution will be? Let's implement two and three...
  18. Thank you having the decency to respond to me, moderator. I appreciate that, and I appreciate the fact you're one of the more active mods present on forums, so again thank you so much for that. If our voices are left unheard, and the majority of the voices are begging the moderators, begging them with all their hearts, to remove a piece of software that's affecting their gameplay, and for some, preventing them from logging into the game... Why is the best course of action to further update the software and not remove it? No offence moderator, that's like saying a big "**** you" to all those people... I mean, put yourself in our positions- We want to play... we want to give you our time... We just want to log in and have fun with our friends, and we can't do that because... Gameguard... How do you want us to respond? How exactly do you want to react? You think that's fair, moderator? We want to play the game too... :(
  19. Rukkirii? You there?

    Dear Rukkirii, I hope this reaches you well. Might I ask why all concerns regarding Gameguard have been ignored as of late? Why no moderator can at least communicate with the community somehow? These forums are the only way we have to communicate with you- It's not that moderators aren't active, you were present on forums nearly 2 hours commenting on Rumblebees bug, so I'm definitely sure you saw all the error 4049's present, and FPS/Stutters/bugs/bots still present after the re-implementation. Please do not ignore our voices; these forums are a place where we'd expect at least some of our voices to be heard- Like, come costumes and anything slightly healthy of this game and you guys are always ready to answer with smilies (XD, :P, =D) and positive comments ( Glad we could help! That's awesome! Yay! ^-^) - come anything serious about the game and the majority of our voices will be silenced. Please don't tell me to submit a ticket to support, because I think the majority of the player-base don't wish to be responded to with automated responses. Would you be happy in our shoes? The game that you enjoy and invest so much into being unplayable because of a company that just won't listen to you? You think that's fair? Please respond. You, any mod- We know you're out there... Please show that at least our voices mean something to you- You give us all these surveys in-game, asking for our opinion, yet we try to give it you here, and the majority of it's being rather ignored. I know you, and potentially other moderators or members of NCSOFT staff will see this, and will probably ignore this message. In the case that you do respond, any form of explanation of the situation, ANY form of details of information would be greatly appreciated by the player-base. I don't want to complain- I don't want to QQ about high prices, progression, or anything, because there are many of us that are willing to put in the time investment, but... simply can't. I pray you, or anyone could at least acknowledge this message, and give the community any form of update. We'd greatly appreciate it. Kind regards, Speras.
  20. Rukkirii? You there?

    It isn't man, I just tried logging in now- Error 4049. Still present.
  21. Here's a list of things you'll never see: "Dear Community, It has come to my attention that our anti-bot ware Gameguard, hasn't been doing its intended job, and has caused for many large drops in FPS, stuttering, and has not solved the bot problem as was intended. We would like to take this chance to apologize to the members of the community who have been affected. We, as all human beings, do make mistakes, and I believe a business is no different; Starting 6th of April, Gameguard will be permanently disabled until Team Bloodlust will come up with a better alternative to our former anti-bot ware. While there will be bots and spammers present in the chat, we assure you we will do our best job to terminate those as fast as possible, and make Blade and Soul into the game you all enjoy. No member of NCSOFT will ever ask you to download third party software without your consent, please send us an images if that ever happens, and we will assure you they will be dealt with accordingly. Our dearest apologies, Rukkirii." "Dear Community, It has come to our attention that there are numerous destroyer and summoner bots present in the arena for 1 on 1 PvP. It is commonly known those are most present in the gold tier (1600-1900), and this has heavily affected those who rely solely on PVP to acquire currency via soulstone pouches. To combat this, we will be observing the same patterns the majority of those bots use, and we will be keeping a closer eye on them to determine whether or not they are truly bots. While granted, the decline in soulstone prices has affected many, soulstones have become relatively easier to acquire with the introduction of the new Silverfrost mountains expansion, and we would appreciate the community's patience while we tackle the issue. Best, NCSOFT." "Dear Community, We realize the Grand Harvest Square, Beastbog, and Soulstone Plains bosses are causing massive declines in FPS and performance issues. While we thought the issues may have been related to one's computer specs, we realized, upon further investigation, that they were definitely due to our servers and poor optimization. To combat this temporarily, the damage requirement for those bosses' loot will be reduced while we devote our attention to optimizing our client. Thank you for your suggestions and bringing this issue to us. Best, NCSOFT." "Dear Community, It has come to our attention that trekking large distances in dungeons has become increasingly frustrating and time consuming for many players, especially in dungeons such as the Naryu Temple, Bloodshade Harbor, and the Blackram Supply Chain. We understand how frustrating it can be to reach the third level of Naryu Temple, and have someone suddenly disconnect, only to force the new recruit to trek a ridiculous distance just to be unified with their party. To combat this, we will implement a teleportation device that will send a player directly to the current stage the party is currently facing. We believe this should lead to a happier and more efficient cross-server experience, and we look forward to your feedback on such an implementation. Best, NCSOFT." Did I miss anything?
  22. A list of things you'll never see

    Thank you for the kind remarks, I understand that the game might function well for some people, and that one's standards for a smooth-running game are different than mine. But some of us aren't so fortunate- Some of us are college students playing on their laptops with university wifi, some of us have fantastic water-cooled PC and high-tech internet, we're all different. Though, through the common example of the WWE, when people get the matches and champions that they want, they cheer for them, when an abnoxious *cricket* is put in power, we boo for them- While granted, the WWE and NCSOFT are different, I don't think it's a wise decision to continue to ignore your player-base- A game is meant to be played, no? I really hope some form of developer would respond to this, or at least acknowledge this statement- I don't get it? Like, NCSOFT, if you want good reviews, better ratings, and in a way erase the insalubrious opinions people have of you, how about try listening to the playerbase that politely and repeatedly ask for things that you hardly ever respond to? Best, Speras. P.S:- No, my name is not actually Speras.
  23. Obligatory Gameguard Thread

    Okay... We all know what happened, the horror Gameguard returned again... Just a simple question, and this is coming from the EU servers... Why bring back Gameguard? Like, I can swear I saw little to no bots in faction chat or all chat in the Silverfrost expansion... I saw less bots in Arena after the Silverfrost expansion with NO Gameguard, my system was running PERFECTLY fine without gameguard, and the moment you re-implement that, somehow all that shit gets reversed, and my dear friend Error 4049 returns to me, and no, I'm not submitting a ticket to support just to get another automated response. FPS are now low, I log into Forum and I see Mandarin characters and university of Queens or something hidden in there, I can't even log into the game... and when does this happen? After Gameguard... Come on, NCSOFT... You guys are better than this- I... We, have dailies to do, and you ain't allowing it to happen... So good luck with your Gameguard endeavors, let's see how far they take you.. Seriously, the game was running much better without it in the past few weeks... Please remove it. Best, Speras.
