  1. Pet collection system - hell no!

    I'll be honest. The person that set a deadline and forces the programmer to translate the code up to the patch day should be fire. This is the reason why the communication team members are getting blame and flame by several players from the whole player base. You clearly stated that the NA/EU internal team members are unsure about changes - what will be in the patch and what will be left out. Here is a solution: From what it looks like your sprint is every 4 weeks and I'm assuming you guys are using Scrum method. I hope your team are, if not the person who decided not to use this approach should be fire in all honesty. Scrum is one of the best method for implementing feature(s) because it is flexible. But back to the solution. When a sprint (with larger project it will be after multiple sprint) is over your team can wait a week or two to fully push the feature(s) to the public. Within those two weeks, all the communication team members should and know what will be on the patch. This will allow good flow of communication rather than "We don't know if that feature(s) will be in this patch or not" moment. By the way, stating something like that is very unprofessional because its clearly show the flaws in the communication among NCSoft NA/EU team members. P.S. When I say communication team members that include anyone that provide the player base with information, such as Community Manager, Producer, etc.
  2. Question about hive queen wing

    Does anyone know what else can I do with these wings other than buying soul shields?
  3. NC Q2 Earnings

    Yes, it is true players come and players go. However games has to "come up" with ideas to keep their players. A good example is real life supermarket: How does one supermarket keep their customers when another supermarket is built nearby? Easy. They come up with ideas such as but not included: -Sales -Promotion -Point system -Better quality - etc. To pull their customers away from the new supermarket. Overall Ncsoft fail to keep their players interested. Here is another example of real life businesses on the downward trend Similar to Ncsoft when comparing to other games Downward trend: -Start business -Businesses in the vicinity start doing promotion (increase in sales) -Fresh starting business (little to no customers -> decrease in sales / no sale) So now how does one start a business and have the potential to survive and sustain? Easy. And you see this everywhere in America Advertising cheap products, from there they begin to increase the product price for net positive Here is another example (true story): Walmart near where I live wanted to buy Sunfresh property, but Sunfresh deny the offer. So, Walmart built a Walmart diagonal to Sunfresh and took all their customers, forcing Sunfresh to close. So you may be thinking how are these real life experience has any connection with online game The connection is pretty simple and online game has 10x harder to keep their customers. In a community you'll notice 3-4 supermarket in vicinity of each other. And another 5-7 miles there're 3-4 more supermarket in that vicinity. What that mean is they don't have a huge competition. Whereas, online game the "vicinity" of competition is almost 1/3 of the world. Eliminate competition = More customers + higher $$$ Fail to eliminate competition = Look at Ncsoft declining over time :P P.s. hire those that can help you eliminate your competition not those that "I get pay check every week doing minimum"
  4. Are NC coins refundable?

    NCoin are refundable in exchange to termination of account due to chargeback. But im assuming you are referring to purchases with Ncoin in cash shop If it is the case the answer is "Maybe" if you "misclick" purchase item(s) you're able to submit ticket and explain what happened with a potential of a refund
  5. They do lose money. develop new feature -> pay programmers -> "ZERO" return in investment (money)
  6. Warlock and Gunner balance

    Just play warlock for fun. Its not a hardcore Dps class, unless you get lucky and crit 24/7. The main roll of warlock is to buff up party, but can’t also be greedy and be top dps also, that wouldn’t be balance am I right? But what I can tell by your post, it’s not the class that you like, it’s about the dps, high number > buff
  7. The skill is from the purple quest. However you don't need the wall dash skill for that part, just run up following where the footsteps are, it will allow you to wall dash in that area only.
  8. costume contest

    What you guys should've done was a 2 Round voting: Round 1: -Post "ALL" submit (Reasonable) costume(s) --By Reasonable it mean (No troll entry: such as, nudity, half finish, etc.) -7 day voting period -Top 10 highest up vote costumes move onto around 2 of voting Round 2: -Post top 10 from Round 1 -7 day voting period -Highest up vote win This will give the community a chance to vote for the "best" looking costume What you guys had done was "pick top 11 of what you think look good" And to be honest 3/4 of the costume displayed look hideous Save yourself from having to go through the trouble of selecting top 11 costume Let the players do it. (p.s.) There could've been "better looking" costume(s) that were not in your "top 11"
  9. Today’s Specials Item Refunds

    This ^ this right here Hes not talking about refund the ncoin back onto the game account Hes talking about refund the ncoin back ONTO THE CREDIT CARD IF they don't refund any ncoin back onto the card holders its fall under FALSE ADVERTISEMENT due to the fact that they advertised "unlimited purchase" which made player(s) buy ncoin to buy the "unlimited item(s)" but now Ncwest want to refund what player(s) had purchased. This is also consider: -A trap (advertise something to lure consumers to buy ncoin, but does not refund the money back onto one's credit card) -A scam (advertise products to lure consumers to pay real money, for ingame currency, however an "unintended issue occur" a refund back onto the account with ingame currency, but not onto the CARD holder's account (real money)) I hope you do this right or else there'll be a lawsuit toward NCwest
  10. Today’s Specials Item Refunds

    That's exactly what i'm saying I don't trust what's in f10 to be legit anymore I can't even trust what will be in f10 in the future to be purchasable without wondering if NC fk up again and going to have to do another refund for the item(s)
  11. Today’s Specials Item Refunds

    This basically screw over anybody that purchased overpriced material from f5 to upgrade the bracelet (buy expensive item(s) from f5 to upgrade) Same goes to those who undercut exchange JUST to buy those "unlimited item(s)" that You guys fk up.
  12. Evolved Stone Availability

    I love how they hype us up with "WE FOUND A NEW WAY for you to get EVO stone" But... but... its R N fken G tho. So GL.
  13. Unlimited Items in Today's Specials

    You guys better refund all the gold players used to exchange for hmcoin. Due to the fact that you guys "made" xanos hand purchasable for an unlimited amount which led to multiple players exchanged gold for hmcoin. If this "fix" is the same as for the "removing of 1m exp charm" there will be flame upon the forum, just giving you guys a heads up to prevent more players from quitting the game.
  14. Your business model.

    Nothing would happen, game will still run, employees will still receive paycheck They already made more than enough from the players that if NO ONE spend a penny (Won't happen :P) within the next month, they would be fine
  15. Server disconnects, latency issues.

    Just want to point out Sales manager != server controller The employees that put item(s) for sale does not work on improving server If you want to blame someone from NC for not having better server it would start with the CEO of Ncwest they (if more than one) have control and/or a saying on whether or not to "make server better" (upgrade) follow by employees of server controller and system security
