  1. Maintenance on 4/26/2017 - Duration

    Hope this is to fix the problems caused by maintenance on the 20th.
  2. Horrible performance as of today

    The maintenance fix screwed the game again.
  3. Gameguard is trash

    I see GameGuard start up whenever I open the launcher. The blue shield nprotect thing will appear on the bottom of my screen for a while or the GG updater shows itself on the top left corner briefly. The files for Gameguard are updated often as I can clearly see the dates they were modified on. After the 12th of April my gameplay was a lot smoother on 64bit so I assumed they got rid of it too or something. The 64bit introduction at first was actually worse for me than the old 32bit for a while. Then around the time they introduced a small fix this week my game and computer started acting exactly like it when Gameguard was causing havoc. Fps dropped from what used to be 70 to 20-30s yet it looks like I am playing on 7 frames and when my characters move everything in sight kind of stutters. Bot whispers for maintenance compensation and party carries came up more frequently, but that is possibly some coincidence, And doing 6player dungeons like Candy Cloud became near impossible to complete without being carried because the ingame lag is so bad. I know what it looks like to play Bns with no gameguard and it is a much better experience than what I have logged into this week. Being forced to not play the game at all because I can't be an Assassin with 7fps and slow loading mid fights. I am not getting this kind of ridiculous low fps and crazy stuttering from any other modern MMORPG that I am currently playing. None of these other games have Gameguard and always run at 60fps or higher with higher end detail graphics and physics than bns. For some reason it just always has to be Bns giving me these problems.....

    I'm not sure what magical launcher you are talking about but feel free to share it with me because that sounds great!
  5. Gameguard is trash

    Ok....having played for about 7 months now I can say GameGuard definitely is not doing anything worth while for all the hassle it brings to people's computers. Arena Pvp bots are still alive and kicking/bots that try to trick new players into carrying them through field missions Gold selling bots and site advertisers never go away Makes game performance worse Gameguard is solving nothing. It doesn't matter if NC eventually gets rid of a small wave of bots every now and then when they will just come right back. Actually...I want someone to give me an s good argument to support gameguard being so *cricket*. Sometimes I've ran the launcher and even had Gameguard crash itself for some reason and the game boot up without it ever starting.
  6. Latency Problems

    Before the maintenance I could do 24p raids without too much stutter or lag of any kind..... Now I stutter and freeze so badly that I just die. Went to Khanda today and even with hide on I just stutter out followed by freezing and then wait to see the screen refresh with my character smashed under a fat dragon. Stuttering outside of heavily populated raids also which normally did not happen.
  7. Haven't had this exact problem my self yet but I would bet money the fault lies with GameGuard.
  8. Kicking players?

    Yeah that is true too.
  9. Kicking players?

    I don't mind teaching people how to do EC, DT, Foundry, and Soguns.....but what about when half the time none of them listen and just rush the boss and wipe the party? Nobody experienced likes wasting their time on this stuff multiple times throughout the day on random players that aren't listening or speaking another language.
  10. To all the low ap players in F8

    I just don't care in normal mode anymore since ap shouldn't be a problem if they have true ivory or above. I do want enough players to know the mechs though since you have to to stay alive in things like DT. Yet listing know mechs for DT in f8 has never actually worked all that well for getting an entire party that knows how it works. Same with foundry... Other stats matter but what are you going to do :l Might as well just start telling people that they can fuse crit on their soul shields and which pieces are good all the time.
  11. so regretful to buy phoenix bundle

    Which is why I held off. Also doesn't seem like an outfit I would wear over what is to come.
  12. ^ Saw the same thing happen endlessly in Celestial Basin.
