About Jim Nightshade

  1. That's just dumb. Main thing here is that the players are not hacking nor exploiting. The company is the main culprit here, they somehow got the price bug in the game, and when they found out they PUBLICLY ADVERTISED IT causing the obvious response: everyone running there. First, the game is a bussiness, so they can't just go all Law & Order and permaban everyone cuz then their playerbase and income dies. Simple logic. Second, at this point you have a lot of people that maybe didn't want to do it but just felt pressured to do it cuz they felt they'd be left behind if they didn't take advantage, after all, everyone was doing it. The problem here is not the people, the issue was horribly mishandled. The optimal solution would have been to shut down server and fix it immediately when found out instead of posting in the forums about it letting everyone know. But at this point it's too late.
  2. Recently, as you all know, there were some improvements to the benefits of having a Premium Membership, which we have to agree are pretty cool. Mostly cuz Premium benefits weren’t really so worth it before. Among the announced benefits there was the one that I liked the most: Free character appearance changer voucher with 3 months premium. Got really hyped about it cuz I had an active 3 month premium membership I always saw things in my chars that I’d like to change, but they were small details so I thought it wasn’t worth it to just buy a voucher. But turns out that I got left out of that deal (at least for now). They announced it on July 18, and the voucher would go to people who had already an active 3 month membership ONLY if they had gotten it from July 1st onwards. I think mine started by the end of June, so boo hoo. The thing is, apart from my obvious personal interest in getting the voucher, I feel this is sort of a bad move. Lots of people who happen to have still 2 months of premium are just denied this cool improvement. And this people, your clients, are the ones that deserve your loyalty the most, because they have given it to you. They have gotten premium membership even when the benefits weren’t really all that great. Even when everyone knew it was lacking. It’d be just good customer support to give the voucher (that’s now included with every new 3 month premium purchase) to ALL people who had already an active 3 month premium, because they were supporting you even when what you were offering them was lacking.
  3. Dynamic price for gold on F9

    If that was the case it means that if ever it hits 1:1.0 then we'd be stuck forever at below 1:1.0. Hope that's not it. There has been plenty of days where the average was 1:2.0 (meaning everything was being sold at that price), but never a whole week.
  4. Dynamic price for gold on F9

    Yeah. Price would have gone higher than 1:2 already a couple times if it wasn't for this hard cap.
  5. Dynamic price for gold on F9

    Some time ago there was an article in Blade and Soul webpage about F9, explaining how the price changed based in the transactions for the past 7 days. I attach here an image of the part where this is explained. The example is simple: if the standard price of gold was to be 1:3, then you could sell gold at any price from 1:1 to 1:4, which makes for a pretty wide range (that should also dynamically change according to the last completed transactions). But this is not happening. It's been weeks now that the ONLY cap that changes dynamically is the minimum price, but the maximum price stays hard capped -no matter what- at 1:2. Even when most transactions occur at around 1:1.80 (which should allow to sell at a maximum rate of about 1:3 or so at least). In the screenshot attached I also include the funniest moment in this when both the minimum and maximum price cap was 1:2 (because the minimum price IS changing according to last transactions, but the maximum IS NOT). So, what is going on here? Is this a bug? Is this intentional? I really wanna believe this is a bug, since this was announced very clearly not too long ago.
  6. Gold from last week [Closed - Duplicate Topic]

    This. Please, what happened? It's not in received items as it said in patch notes.
  7. Radiant Energy Exchange Update

  8. Radiant Energy Exchange Update

    Devs only work with the code and all, they don't take the decisions. There's a separate team that takes decisions. Devs just follow orders.
  9. Radiant Energy Exchange Update

    Yeah, the xanos hands was a stupid scam too. "Oh but we give you back the ncoin you spent" ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ it, people had purchased ncoin specifically and only for that. They didn't want ncoin for OTHER things.
  10. Radiant Energy Exchange Update

    I was just thinking about this. There is people who lost real money to this. This can probably qualify as a criminal scam?
  11. Radiant Energy Exchange Update

    Just thought of this: Step 1: Announce Radiants will get exchanged for gem powders, making prices go up and people start hoarding them. Step 2: Lower the minimun gold ratio for gold selling to 1:2 Step 3: Announce at last day that Radiants won't get exchanged for what you promised, but for 10 g (that with the new gold selling ration means 18 hmcoins). Step 4: Sell powders and fragments through F10. That's how you basically completely destroy people's savings and money. It almost sounds like a planned thing.
  12. Radiant Energy Exchange Update

    Yeah, I might just up and leave at this point. What am I gonna stay for? Wait to see how many times I can get ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ed over? There's people who lost REAL MONEY for this. Not me, thank god. But there's people who prolly bought gold with ncoin to stack up radiants. This is literally a scam.
  13. Radiant Energy Exchange Update

    I understand the decision, but to be honest putting them at 10g trading is just ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ing over pretty much EVERYONE. People have been buying them for 15-17g in order to get the gem powders and not cuz they were so hot on getting soon-to-be-worthless items. So if you wanna put them in the antique in exchange for gold, you gotta at least freaking match the market price for the last week (again, 15g to 17g) or you're gonna have a looooot of pissed players here. Hell, I'm pissed and I didn't even buy many now. But the big whales that bought like 1k to get their gems and got scammed out of it? I'd be really freaking pissed.
  14. why are new mmos so ping reliant?

    There ARE things that can be done to improve the experience for players with higher latencies. In a patch a few months ago I noticed that my flicker speed was much smoother and faster (BM) than previous to it. I think they have included things like XML editing for this to happen. So I'm pretty sure there are ways to improve the experience. And it should be important, since a lot of the player base actualy plays at 200+ ping.
  15. Silver Cauldron crafting bug.

    So I've been analizing all the crafting costs (only for tradable stuff) and I've encountered something. The "Prickly Pear Potion Chest" costs more per unit if you craft 10 together than crafting 5. It's the ONLY case in the entire crafting system that this happens right now (again, only tradable stuff). My theory is that the 2nd quantity was to be 11 or 12 units instead of 10. All other craftables from the Silver Cauldron produce at least one more unit than double of the lowest production quantity (6 to 15, and 4 to 9 in the other potions).
