    hi i play this game for 3 months, in this 3 months i haven't noticed this games RNG , at this event im just blindly going to throw money at it without doing research of what might be potential drop %'s for the items i want BUT i didn't make a profit so here i am crying on forums.

    -you're not keeping this game alive you just think that and because of that you think that you are entitled to something, you could have atleast waited a few days before spending $$ on RNG boxes, ask around in your clan/faction or look on forums what other people get. tehlel@disguy

    Did you come up with that yourself or did you just rehash all the other posts saying the same talking points? No, i'm genuinely curious if you actually believe what you're saying is the first time in this thread, that angle has been approached? Crying on forums? If me admitting my mistake and displeasure is tantamount to crying then shall i kindly take spiked pipe to poop hole and smile. Maybe my feedback may be useful? One rule of business is, every penny counts. Customer satisfaction may be too conservative for your current progressive yet regressive views.

     

    In my day, you treat repeat customers like small investors. The more small investors you have, the more constant flow of income you receive. If your attempt at milking money makes your investors not want to invest, HOW WOULD YOU KNOW, if they never complain? See the logic there? Does simple logic like that make sense to you? Do i need to repost this a few times so you can come to an conclusion like the conclusion you came up with when you posted? What's wrong with being a little entitled? I said myself "i don't expect the heaven's to fall from the sky" but i'd like a little foreplay before you ram it in? Is that too much to ask? Please do me a favor and go trip down a flight of stairs! 


  2. TRUST ME! the last thing i want is a refund. I definitely got my money's worth. Why? because, i paid 100 bucks that ended up saving me 10 to 20 times that amount in the future. NCSOFT is anti future company. I don't care if they ban me for saying it. The worst thing you can do is ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ off a person willing to give you thousands. Who does that? Name one person or business that's going to take a huge crap on their investors for pennies? I didn't even want the wings but when i tell you got got next to nothing i mean that i couldn't even upgrade a damn baleful stage 1 weapon with what i got for a 100 bucks without selling the materials or exchanging the leaves. Look at the loot list!! That's laughable as hell.


  3. Prepare for an onslaught of baddies telling you how it's YOUR FAULT for participating in an event for a game you enjoy. "STOP COMPLAINING" and "CHECK REDDIT" and "YOU SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER" are the typical bullshit responses your fellow gamers will give you. Will they help you protest? No. Will they make sure to warn next years batch of newbies? No. They'll be here with their condescending smug responses about as helpful as a blind person giving directions. What makes it worse is, this is the most anti consumer a company can get without breaking any laws. It's totally your fault for falling for it though (sarcasm). A good con artist wouldn't be a con artist if he didn't claim a few victims.

     

    I wonder how this would work for people who didn't know cigarette's give you health issues, i mean...back in the day they didn't put warnings on the label. Guess it's those damn smokers fault right? Even better, depression medicine that actually makes you worse. guess people should have done their research right? Oh but this is different....it's just a game....a cheap and easy way to con people into spending a large amount of money without knowing they're chances are next to no existent. My metaphorical middle finger to all of you. have a nice day.

    This game has been up for almost 2 years now and how many events with RNG boxes like this did we have before? People still blindly throw money into the RNG boxes and yet come here to complain about not getting the goodies from the boxes. 

     

    Believe it or not, next time when there is a similar event like this, people will make similar topics on forum.

    Did you read the part where i said i've been playing for roughly 3 months? And what do you mean "people like this"? Oh the ones that keep the game running?  The ones that actually support the company? The ones preventing the servers from closing and everyone fleeing back to FF14 or WoW? Yes i deserved to be laughed at. I'm laughing at myself. But i didn't see you make a "WARNING DON'T BUY RNG BOXES" thread this morning. But here you are to tell us the pan was hot AFTER we touched it and burned ourselves. How convenient.


  5. The RNG itself is done poorly. They should factor those percentages in a trade of value. For the people that actually care about a cosmetic item like wings, they shouldn't be the most expensive things available. The gems have more lasting effect. My problem is, i spent 100 bucks POORLY. I didn't receive anything that would allow my to upgrade a stage 1 ring to a stage 2 ring. You know how laughable that is? I literally could have more progression if i would have NOT spent on this event. I could have a maxed out ring for 100 bucks. I could have the next tier in pet or soul for 100 bucks. You know what i got instead? a 70% loss seeing as if i tried to sell the 14 xanos discs, i'd get maybe 100 gold for them LOL. I could have sold the NC COIN for triple the profit. This was just enough of a kick in the ass to realize who's the fool here. Buyer's remorse doesn't fit the context. More like falling for a card trick from a guy that knows the REAL TRICK, was fooling you into betting him.


  6. This event was the needle that broke the camels back. The drop rates are outlandishly anti consumer. This is borderline scamming. It's not a scam but it's borderline but one to learn from. The value you get for dropping any real cash is very similar if not worse to the value you get for watching your money disappear in a casino. Problem is, the casino gives you a chance at ACTUAL GAIN. I'm not going to ask for a refund or anything because i don't want my account closed. I'm not even going to ask for compensation because i'm mature enough to live with my decisions and learn from them. What i am going to do, is inform as many people as possible to not pay your company because not only did you screw premium accounts, you basically screw anyone that spends large amounts of money in this game.

     

    I've been playing this game for roughly 3 months and spent roughly around 5k. Yes i work a job and have expendable cash. I still have enough money to vacation and take care of my responsibilities. The reason i'm telling you any of this is because i'm the type of person that keeps this game running. Do i expect to have the heaven's fall from the sky? NO but i do expect a reasonable trade off for the money i spent. What i don't understand is why you would rather have people spend money and hate it, then spend money and at least agree with it? I decided to limit myself to only 100 bucks this event. Nothing more because i wanted to test the waters. What did i get? next to nothing outside of 8 empyrean spirit stones and a bunch of other useless items. I didn't receive one oil, premium stone or anything that would actually help me at least upgrade 1 accessory, weapon, soul, pet NOTHING. 14 maple leaves i guess is the trade off deal here? 

     

    long story short, you have a great game with a terrible team running it. good luck in the future....and fix your servers.


  7. I'm happy i'm not the only one that feels stupid. (misery loves company) I opened 80 boxes and got next to nothing. no premium stones, no sealed oils, nothing remotely useful in fact. I ended up with 14 maple leaves. the only thing i got that can be considered remotely decent was the 8 empyrean stones i guess. i got the outfit anyone and everyone will get. yea PLEASE DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY GUYS!! i got more useful items just opening the tables you get for completing dungeons. that's 100 bucks down the drain. i feel like it would have been more useful to drop the 100 bucks in a park so a kid can buy himself a great christmas. i'm done with NCSOFT. 


  8. Our clan is <tainted sky> and we're looking for any class to help fill 1 of our 3 available slots. We prefer 1k AP 950 minimum. We'd prefer you know mechanics like transport on first boss and SS for raven king. We also prefer people with experience on At least the first 3 floors. Whisper "niarelle" or "katsoyu" in game or reply here if you're interested and have more questions. We raid on thursdays @ 8:30pm est. And most of our members are fairly geared so most accessories hit the floor. FYI: We have no destroyers or assassins so all that gear would be yours, if it's needed.

    The troll still baiting ppl...

    Troll? no one that has posted in this topic has come remotely close to trolling. Trolling would be stating something with the intention of getting a negative rise out of people. I'm sure you're intelligent enough to know that just like i'm intelligent enough to know the REAL reason you posted. You're hoping to persecute anyone that may want to express an opinion that's different then yours. Ultimately shutting down this topic by assuming the majority has spoken and all is well in the current balancing and there is nothing here to consider. 


  10. @maryelle:

    1. you seem insistent on arguing instead of being objective. The evidence is in your face the moment you play or play against a summoner. The evidence is the communities reaction to summoners. The evidence is the win rate of summoners in the lower ranks. The evidence is in posts made by fellow summoners, explicitly proving my points by stating how independent the cat can be. 

     

    2. As far as my snarky "turn their brain on" comment. The difference is in the context in which i used it. It wasn't aimed at anyone. Do you understand now? 

     

    3. I never said people are wrong, i said they're derailing the topic by assuming i struggle against summoners. That changes the context of my post. It makes it seem as if i only want summoners to be made easier for my own selfish benefit. When in truth, my suggestion was to make summoners actually work for the perks their cat gives them by not allowing their companion to act as a PVP tank.

     

    4. Finally, you seem to be hell bent on putting me in my place but you're failing miserably and just appearing to be stand off-ish for no reason. Yes i compare every game to games that came before it. Just because it's "blade and soul" doesn't mean it's perfect. What i'm doing, is showing passion for a game i want to succeed. Trust me, summoner isn't the only class that needs a another balancing look. As far as me being insulting, i implore you to find who i directly insulted.


  11. This games role play is about as existent as mc hammer's career. NCSOFT needs to really revamp the cosmetic department and implement player housing. They need a marriage system, build system, and other role play friendly features. Sad thing about this game is it has some of the best outfit selections i've seen in an MMO. Just need to build on what they have.

    But the autor is allowed to be rude? Doesn't seem very balanced to me.

    They said nothing about people being rude. There goes more of that "selective reading". It's obvious you aren't objective and just came to argue. THAT, is what was addressed.

    I've noticed how convenient DDoS rhetoric seems to be to NCsoft...

    Make no mistake BnS's major problems are not related to DDoS but their servers being overloaded with players and not able to keep up.

    Don't believe me? Please explain to me why is the ping always above 110 for me when my trace route gives 60 until last hop?

    Or that I have experienced 60 ms delay perfect fluid gameplay 5 minutes after maintenance ended and there were no players yet, and it was gradually rising as players came back?

    Thats no DDoS...

     

    Edit: Not saying it's not DDoS now, maybe it is. Just talking in general.

    yep i agree. The same thing happens with me and my internet is among the best possible. On top of that i live 5 hours away from the server in texas. During the slow hours my ping won't go higher then 70 or 80 in a "hoopa hoopa woochie" scenario. Not syaing they aren't being DDoS'd now but they really should just release another trove and let us pay for some new servers man. lol


  14. bump for more responses. It would definitely be a quality of life upgrade that would help make the player base very appreciative. The only reason i don't see it being implemented the way we want is, money. They would likely have to develop an interface for us to utilize this feature and i'm sure if they considered it, the topic that will arise is: "how will we make money from this".

     

    Sadly this game seems insistent on that very topic so may i suggest a trade off? My suggestion affects premium membership and hongmoon store products. Currently the premium is lacking so maybe allow the beautician feature to be a perk of lvl (you decide) premium members. That way, more people are willing to buy premium to access the feature and it's not considered pay to win in any shape or form.

    @Enemy Silence The crux of your argument is that the easier the class, the weaker it should be and, conversely, the harder the stronger. From a player's perspective, that is a completely logical expectation to have. However, from a game company's perspective, that is a recipe for less players (less than what we already have anyway) and therefore less money. The reason they give medium or even high damage to an incredibly easy class is because they want to encourage casual/average players to pick up and continue playing the game, despite their mediocre skills and/or ping. So why not buff KFM damage? As we're all aware, our desire to play this game is largely based on how relevant we feel our main class to be compared to whatever the meta is; if all the ranged classes got knocked down a tier on their DPS compared to KFM, at first they may not care. Then they start rerolling or quitting once they see "KFM/Sin DPS only" in raid/party requirements.

    Very insightful! Thanks for not attacking my skill as a player. I figured from the developers point of view this is a great way to keep the masses interested as picking a class is daunting for a beginner. Seeing the easiest class double as one of the best is great for the longevity of the casual player. Still, what i suggested wouldn't hurt casuals. It would just force the competitive to actually care about their cat taking pvp damage. I still don't see why making a summoner care about their cat translates into all the rubbish responses i'm getting about my skill.

    There should be no reason why the easiest class should be as good as it is. Currently the lowest dps is KFM (which needs a damage buff but i'll make a separate topic for that) yet KFM is the hardest class to play.  Summoner is essentially this game's "mage" class yet they have decent utility and crazy damage. There is literally no other game where a class like summoner could get away with having absolutely no weaknesses. In PVE they're highly requested for their stealth and they can also heal. They can send their pet to help revive a fallen party member or even themselves. 

     

    In arena PVP, there is no such thing as a terrible summoner. Their tier of terrible would be, what is considered decent, for much harder to play classes. Every summoner, remotely competent at the game, is an immediate threat regardless of the player skill. One comment you frequently hear other players say is: "OMG a summoner" or "i hate summoners"or "braindead/class carry scummoner". If you don't believe me, watch region chat in the pvp lobby during active hours.

     

    This class doesn't have a relevant weakness and that is a balance problem. Their rotation has no real ending and their "road to victory" is about as straight forward as destroyers. Plus they're mid tier in PVE DPS. Their cat does WAY TOO MUCH in the means of helping them win and killing the cat is more like an all or nothing strategy as it can darn near make itself invincible for a short period of time. The only argument summoners have in their defense (which is a terrible argument) is, "there are no summoners winning tournaments or something about the top PVP spot or other blah blah blah about the 1% of pvpers.

     

    To balance this class they need a PVE damage nerf and their cat needs a huge health nerf. Since their cat is so important, it should be important to the summoner to keep the fragile thing alive. Killing the cat is a huge threat to the summoner so if they at least had to turn their brain on long enough to worry about the cat, then the class would be balanced. As far as damage is concerned, there is no way in hell the easiest class and  "mage" should out DPS harder classes of equal or better gear. That's just a slap in the face to any and every rule of balance. The damage nerf wouldn't even affect arena pvp so this is an ACTUAL BALANCING not a "crymoarnerf"

    I'm going to quote myself because people seem intent on arguing how bad i am at pvp instead of directly telling me what's wrong here. 

     

    1. i stated that summoner is mid tier in PVE DPS while being the easiest class in the game, While classes like KFM are much harder and are low tier. that's a balancing issue.

     

    2. I stated that there is no such thing as a terrible summoner in PVP as their tier of terrible is actually what most would be decent at tougher classes. that's a balancing issue.

     

    3. I suggested their cat's health be nerfed to help balance the playstyle of summoner whom most of them don't contain their cat and @grimoir willingly admitted will allow you to beat on the cat because the cat can absorb and recover health. He/She also said in their "tips" you go after the cat, you lose. REALLY? seems like that's a balancing issue.

     

    4. I stated the cat dying is a serious threat to the summoner but in the handbook of how to fight a summoner (because i lose 100% to all summoners hur dur) is to NOT go after their main source of power??? seems like a balancing issue to me. Please continue to defend "ryu's unblockable fireball" like balancing.
