  1. i constantly hear the argument, hurts/negatively affects/screws over, veterans. when was it okay for a company to screw it's biggest investors/customers? some people on this forum feel it's absolutely fine to do just that. i guess, being jealous of big spenders, turned people blind to the fact, this hurts everyone. here's some simple logic for you, if the rich becomes poor, who keeps the lights on? answer? the government. think on that for a while before defending ncsoft.


  2. to get level ten premium, you'd spend over one thousand dollars real money. the two months ''free'' we're getting is worth twenty four bucks. make that make ''cents''. yet again, free costume trade and free mailing fee's will make premium a ''must have''. it's neither pay to win or that marginally costly to implement given we're paying subscription.


  3. my solution is not p2w. costumes being traded for free helps me kill zulia? mailing mats to alts for free gets me that legendary accessory? discounts on character alteration vouchers helps me learn hollow heart mechanics? more ncoin for roughly the exact same price lets me one shot in battlegrounds? please explain how anything ive ever suggested is pay to win. ive barely ever suggested a pay to progress, please don't foul up the thread with posts like that again.

    They actually improved the premium for everyone, regardless of rank and people still complain.
    Unless they hand you more HM Coin than the money you put in you won´t be satisfied, will you?
    All I see is just your rampage, while not giving any suggestions to improve it.

     

    In the exact same post you quoted i DID offer solution. In fact i've offered plenty of solutions over the course of posting about premium and the only one that was acknowledged was colors to outfits which i suggested long before it was a thing in korea and it has nothing to do with premium. Now do i believe i'm remotely responsible for colors being added to costumes...no it was most likely a coincidence.

     

    Regardless, premium is wavering in value and most people just repeated what i already mentioned in my second post about WHO actually gets value from premium.  Still that value is not worth the price of premium. You literally get more for cheaper on your netflix bill then the "perks of premium". Most of you don't number crunch your gains throughout the month. If you did, you'd realize that, unless very lucky, premium's benefits are negligible. Convenience is what most of you are satisfied with and sadly, you're apart of the group that will stagnate the growth of this game.

     

    You're willing to pay top dollar for mediocre levels of convenience when your cost would have gotten you in the door of a subscription based MMO with functional servers like FF14. Seriously, the cost of premium is a monthly bill for what would be a subscription service, but the service is not much of a service, just a series of....conveniences. So what you get a few more BP and  few more peaches. I guess you spent 10 to 15 less minutes then the guy without premium lol. I hate to say it, as i believe some of you are genuine but, most of you in the defense of premium, are just fan boys/girls. blinded by how much you enjoy the game.

     

    Every game has people willing to defend an obvious rip off. No different then the year 2007 when there was this big division among gamers about microtransactions. You had people who protested it and people who defended it, We see who won and why games are less quality (read my psa as to why you shouldn't buy the upcoming rng box) and more quantity of things being sold to you. We can't even get a overhaul on in game materials like legendary gem hammers, alpine and green level gear, yet you can support a paid subscription that doesn't offer you a "full" version of the game features. You might be genuine, but you also are genuinely the problem and the downfall. You're too blinded by fanboyism to see it and the lack of growth this game has is the result.

    I enjoy the convenience premium gives me and I'll continue to buy it. I've always thought as a game centered so heavily on outfits that the wardrobe being a premium feature was a load of bull and it should be free. I'll continue paying for premium cause I enjoy the benefits and time savers it gives me. I dont sort of wish rank 10 users would get something exclusive, but 2 months of free premium is better than nothing. If you don't like it don't pay for it. I'm going to pocket that free hcoin and use it to transfer outfits for free (which people need to stop complaining about the stamps cause the other version don't let you transfer outfits at all) and unlock my trove slots.

    This is a very interesting point of view. Would you please explain these "conveniences" "benefits" and "time savers" in more detail? It would really help people that may be reading, make a more educated decision if they're considering premium themselves. ALSO could you explain how far you are in your character progression? (i'm not being hostile in case you feel i'm setting you up for attack, just need a different point of view)


  6. As a PSA i'll allow people to know who actually gets value from premium. If you're end game then you get the least value (you're actually getting robbed unless you have godlike rng during daily dash) if you're brand new then keep reading.

     

    Currently premium will allow you to level faster, and greatly decrease the time in which it takes you to use teleport. It gives you access to on the fly storage and decreased fees in marketplace, upgrades, etc. For you (people BT tier and below) premium helps but only if you game on alts and spend roughly 6 hours daily. The value is limited but CURRENTLY it's pretty decent. Once it upgrades, depending on how desperate you are to have negligible perks, it may actually behoove you to just pay 10 bucks a month and buy nc coin instead.

     

    Why just buy coin? because you get roughly 450 "free" coin from premium and around 12 bucks a month. You'll get 800 coin at just 10 bucks a month that tallies to 2500 in 90 days. that's 1050 more than premium which you could use on costumes, mats, trove, whatever. In 3 months you would have more stuff then a guy on premium unless that guy hit jack pots daily during his daily dash. If you simply bought the moonstone crystals you'd end up with more over all value to your progression while actually saving more money then the guy paying for premium. 

     

    In a nutshell, having the wardrobe and access to your vault was the only real reason to pay. access to your vault and dragonstore(who's items will eventually be made f2p) will basically cost you 5 bucks a month since they're the entire value left. Getting more gold from enemy drops is a lie. Oh and i guess that "awesome" wind walk glamour. (sarcasm)


  7. The only thing that makes premium even alluring is the free Ncoin....BUT....yes but.....if you add up the cost of a 90 day premium subscription versus the cost of simply buying the coin....You come out about 5 bucks cheaper. https://www.bladeandsoul.com/en/shop/premium/

     

    The new premium is hot garbage and another middle finger from NCSOFT to it's paying customers. The only thing that will make premium WORTH the purchase is free costume exchange and free mailing fees to alts. You could even add another 10 bucks onto the premium and it would still fly if you'd just simply LISTEN but nah. keep doing you NCSOFT.

     

    The whole daily dash is just RNG not worth much at all if the RNG isn't on your side. You can't justify worth with uncertainty. ncsoft would literally be EA in business ratings if more people bothered to play their games. It's just so easy to see how they rip you off, the least they could do is hide it better. I guess they think we can't do simple math.


  8. Now if you're in the group of "i'll do what i want with my hard earned money" then by all means exit this thread and TRY....to refrain from posting below. I know that's hard for you (yes you) but discipline yourself. For everyone else, do not buy these RNG boxes and here is why:

     

    1. we still have crappy servers and bugs galore that aren't even being addressed.

    2. We didn't even get a proper christmas event and on our christmas they released a trove with crappy RNG.

    3. They refuse to acknowledge our frustration with how things are being handled and over all communication is lacking. The only bit of feedback we get is when they stream, advertising the new event.

    4. Premium members have been shafted way too long and i doubt people who spent up to level 10 will get properly compensated.

    5. Crashing galore, unable to receive daily rewards, terrible optimization (especially noticeable in raids), Mods giving biased treatment of players (support related), poor matchmaking/terrible/crashy 6v6.

    6. arena boosters not being addressed

    7. No way to deal with AFKers and issue not being addressed

    8. RNG boxes being dangerously close to a scam and the lack of integrity and shear audacity of ncwest to have another cash event right after trove, when trove was on christmas like GEEZ!

    9. failure to compensate the players that bought outdated/useless items from the cash shop before they were removed.

    10. combat mode bug..........

    11. failure to update or even acknowledge the input and playability issues, players who use controllers have.

     

    I'm positive there are many more so feel free to post below to add on to why we shouldn't continue to support a company that obviously see's it's community as unimportant. I'm not speaking for a vocal minority here. Just because you may enjoy the game doesn't mean you have to ignore it's glaring issues and unfair lack of dev support. I "WAS" one of the whales and spent thousands so i know both sides of the fence. I'm not speaking out my neck here, so don't treat me like i am.


  9. You do realize you have MUCH more power then NCWEST? You want them to stop with the RNG boxes? I have the answer but trust me...it's harder than it sounds. You ready? DON'T BUY THEM!!!! Yea i know, you have to buy them but please don't complain. You sound like an addicted drug user begging their seller to stop supplying them. It's called consumer discipline. Learn to put value on your dollar before expecting others to value your dollar. If you can be so easily taken advantage of, thanks to a bland outfit with wing, then good luck in the real world kiddo.  


  10. NONE OF YOU understand what's really going on here. NCSOFT does not care about who quits or who feels mistreated. This game is not their cash cow and they couldn't care less if they had to permanently close the servers. They're gathering cash for a new project which is why things remain unchanged for the most part. There is no possible way to market this game into a multi million player base at this point.

     

    Literally nothing they do will yield those results. The plan is to milk who ever enjoys the game enough to pay until they gather enough resources to continue with business ventures. That explains the lack of updated servers, bug fixes, common issues and more. Remember the surveys? Remember the questions they asked like if we would like housing? Yea all that aint happening. Blade and soul 2 might implement something but the way they see it, this game will roll until the wheels fall off (you all quit) and then it's on to the next.

     

    Getting upset at ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ poor business is useless. They're showing you blatant signs they give no flutes, by not even giving us a christmas inspired environment. They have a 2-3 year plan for the game but that is mostly based on whatever you see in korea and pay events. Getting mad at GM's has as much effect on corporate as it does if you was to get mad at a mcdonald's employee because they gave their family free food and you feel left out. You want better treatment in these end days? You better pay what you weigh or don't expect jack crap! You're simply fooling yourselves if you think there are people being paid working 9 to 5 on this game. This happens in development cycles and most of the stuff is already done so it's intake time.

     

    Put yourself in their shoes. If some one paid you around 6-7k in a year, you'd probably treat them better then the guy that only spent around 200. You're lying if you say you won't. Is it fair? welcome to life. It's why i haven't posted any more suggestions and probably won't. Once i come to terms with how much money i've wasted, i'll most likely quit as well. Until then....happy spending.


  11. Go blade dancer. More reward for less effort. Better in poor ping situations. Top tier in all instances of pvp. One of the highest DPS classes. Easier rotation and less overall frustration. Plus you don't have to worry about tanking, unless you truly desire to pick a class that probably won't tank anything until you're high geared anyway .(kfm)

     

    There is no reason to choose KFM unless you just enjoy masochistic play and constant challenge. The class will suck until you invest months of time or thousands of dollars. PVE content is much more difficult and you'll hate yourself for choosing KFM if you truly don't want what i just mentioned. I always tell people to thoroughly consider a different class over KFM because the enjoyment you have now will be short lived unless you're hardcore as hell. 

     

    BD is overall more bang for you buck/time no matter how you slice it. Yea KFM has fighting spirit (blue buff) and they can tank but don't think people value you for anything other then their own selfish reason. "You deal with the boss and the majority of mechanics while giving us increased stats, while we sit back and pew pew and deal with the occassional mechanic" is the overall role you have. You'll get bodied repeatedly in pvp until you master every last aspect of your character and even then you'll lose to people' secondaries because of cheap crap like WL and SIN.

     

    So in closing, if you really enjoy this game and plan on playing it at your own pace then choose BD because KFM is not and probably will never be a good class. Oh and when you have the best gear POSSIBLE! meaning everything and all top gems....you'll do roughly 5-600k damage(perfect rotation and highly dependent on ping) which is laughable when compared to every other class available. GO BD unless you're a masochist like myself who actually enjoy KFM but wish it was a lot more rewarding. I spent months numbing up my fingers trying to learn 3rf all to do basic and uninspiring dps. I'm fire now because servers and ping spike like mad during raids.


  12. Are you actually asking this company to ACT (meaning pretend) like it cares about it's user base? Any company that's willing to incentivise a "pay event" during christmas is already lacking in integrity. Let alone one that doesn't even communicate and shoves multiple games on one server. The korean version is a completely different game then the one we have now. Based on your location determines how you're treated. This is the most anti-company, anti-consumer game developer ghosting right now. They won't even read this message board let alone give two damns what people on it say.

     Grimoir they should make the dungeon harder to make it "hard to get" giving it a low drop rate even with a low drop rate being able to do this once a week for a low chance of getting is horse shit. a few charms sure sounds great if you're  what ? hm 1-9 once you get to 14-19 those charms aren't even gonna leave a dent in the hundreds of millions exp you need once you think you would push for more mats like moonstones to upgrade rather than settling for the bare minimum

    as for you enemy silence you really have the audacity to bring up my posts? or did you come here to argue so you could finally make that BIG 100 post you've dreamed of. 
    sounds like you're pretty envious of someone clearing it where you can't your solutions are simple quit your complaining and find a clan that CAN clear it carrying your ass or learn the damn mechanics and play like a competent human being my posts vs. your should indicate that my time is better spent in game advancing. Ncsoft has already made it pretty damn easy for people like you to gear up spoon feeding you your gear and making dungeons brain dead easy, but im sure you just one of those screw mechanics "muh dps" kinda people. quit projecting your failures upon others and ask for help if you're honestly looking to clear VT or you can just sit here and cry and complain about people who can clear it crying and complaining

    i have a group that clears every week. now don't you feel stupid for assuming you know me? Or do i need to give you my BnS tree? As for what you're asking, you sound spoiled and entitled. Again, just be happy you're apart of the 1% like myself and others like us who have groups that can clear. I mean, yea i need one for my alt so you're half right in your assumption lol. Third post and your contribution to this forum is 85% BS.


  14. So your second post ever on this website is just to complain about RNG? Be happy you're apart of the 1% that even has a group clearing VT every week. That fortune alone isn't afforded to the overwhelming majority but you want ncsoft to stop what they're doing to make your life easier, so you can further the gap between yourself and the rest of the community? 


  15. LOL he's asking for a nerf to the best balanced class in the game because he's struggling as a warlock (kfm's worst match up according to korea)

     

    While i do believe KFM needs and overhaul, it absolutely has nothing to do with nerfing them in any way shape or form. If anything you should manage your thrall better and stop depending on A.I. to win your battles. Good luck trying to get anyone to agree with you. I's like a summoner complaining about their cat giving KFM free triple kick. You do realize your chain is way more "unfair" then damn near any move in the game (not including assassin) all you have to do is chain the kfm...wait to see what he does...if he makes a mistake...you face roll until you win.
