  1. High ping after maintenance

    it wasn't too bad after the gunner intro, about 1.5x the latency, but now its double to triple since last weeks maintenance. I can't play the game at 400ms.
  2. Everything is intended. They need to stop using that phrase because they continually look like morons when they do. Level 55 mobs/bosses so you cant get xp or do dungeons? intended. Memory coins instead of bells? intended. Constant crashing? intended.
  3. So ! What do you think about the gunner guys ?

    As expected it is obscenely powerful in arena pvp. A very heavy alpha, 5 rapid fire 1 button iframes and the 5 second immunity.
  4. Until when ncsoft will be conniving with hacker

    There seems to be an issue with people using skills without cooldowns and people not losing hitpoints when hit it seems. Then there is some tinfoilhat attempt to say ncsoft is helping the hackers. There have been many questionable things happening in my PVP fights today, but things happen and I'm not there to actually climb the ladder. I just want the beans, but some people take pvp seriously so of course there will be cheaters and exploits.
  5. PvP 100% dead?

    Battlefields are all about using the pve bling you paid real money for, smack talking, skill abuse, level pimping and a whopping 2 types of capture the flag.
  6. The end result of the hands of xanos cry baby fiesta. updated

    You spent your gold on tradable mats, then had to convert them to be usable, so you have lost nothing, you still have the materials to get it back. You just don't have the chance to sell things that you had already devoted to crafting an item. Since you have really lost nothing but the ability to sell the products you impulsively swiped for no pity is due, and no need for anyone to think about your pain and suffering. You were taking advantage, you lost the advantage and got a little slap on the wrist. Keep THINKING you're entitled. Caveat emptor, with a dose of a fool and his money. Don't worry, you can swipe to buy the time of people willing to listen to you cry.
  7. The end result of the hands of xanos cry baby fiesta. updated

    You can always buy your mats back from the daily specials. You know, like you did the first time. Now THINK again about right now, who is crying?
  8. Unlimited Items in Today's Specials

    Its not enough that NCwest gets lots of money from whales, they want it faster in large frantic amounts. I've previously cut back my playing and spending. This last two weeks shows me that NCwest is going beyond favoring the players with the fastest swiping and limitless credit. There is a pattern here and it seems that the same people spot and take advantage of these mistakes every time. There may be a grapevine about this sort of thing, but i bet the root starts in the NCwest office. Since i can't possibly compete, my further investment in playing this game is over, and all NCwest games will be tainted in my eyes and opinion.
  9. Soul Fighter vs Summoner as a healer class

    SF heal does work without entering combat mode. It also boosts the movement speed of the party and gives 100% focus.
  10. Blade & Soul should come to Steam

    it was, but now it is not because it costs money to keep things listed in steam. Couple that with the gold sellers and the amount of people that fall for obvious scams and you have the reason why steam doesn't trust NC, and NC doesn't want to pay for steam.
  11. Trove Key Drop Rate

    Hepta gems weren't dropping so they "fixed" the system by rigging it. save your ncoins and just buy gold if you have already invested. All in all this event is not worth spending anything on, and everyone already paid through the nose with the spyware and increased ping.
  12. Game is unplayable after the update

    My ping goes up to 250ms now, never less than 190 even in a single instance like the CB ritual chambers. thats up 70-130ms from pre patch. There is only one thing to explain it, and the devs have heard about it. I play SF and BD, rather ping reliant, so i only log on to help clanmates atm. The free hard drive space from uninstalling is looking like a good incentive to do so atm.
  13. POLL - How many have put a pause on BnS because of XIGNCODE3?

    I don't think NCsoft will listen to polls, or respond to negative outbursts in forums, as they have seem to pay little attention to them. For that purpose i have eliminated them from my monthly gaming budget, and am extracting myself from the game. It will take some time to vote with my dollars and my feet, I'm very active in my clan and have friends I would rather not leave, but I'm going to because i have been sufficiently alarmed by this unannounced and intrusive installation to install a seperate os instance to play the game. NCsoft is shown to only pay attention to the bottom line. My small contribution to their finances will not have any effect individually, but that is not the intent. I'm just going to migrate to a game where the developers actually pay attention and don't half ass their product.
  14. how do i find out about basin boss respawn time

    being there to do things there, then adding 45 minutes fromt he last time the announcement went up
  15. only did 100 or so keys, got a Hepta diamond, 2 silverfrost keys, 50 radiant, 50 gold, 20 msp flowers, 4 SS of which 3 were #7's, elements of both sorts and high quality fabric. I had one crit that was worth being called a crit, and that was the diamond. the high quality fabrics and elements were all the rest of the crits. the regular rolls covered the rest. This update has been the biggest letdown I've ever had with bns.
