  1. Request: No race specific classes

    Where did you hear this info at? Please share so we can get on the hype train too. O.O
  2. Some questions to the community

    Lets say I just started playing this game today. If I can toss $1000 at this game to max level my character, my gear and my armor in all of 1 sec while it takes 1 full year for F2P to farm and max everything, that is pay to win. It is P2W because the F2P will never be able to compete with me. The minute F2P cannot easily compete with someone using cash to level is the minute it becomes P2W. If a F2P only has to farm for a week or 2 to catch me the card swipe player, then that is not P2W because a new level patch is not going to roll in that soon to set us apart. Thus allowing for F2P and card swipe player to play against or with each other fairly. Its called elitism, and yes it does stroke their egos to do so. Some players are saying its because they want to get the dgn over with ASAP because it is a pain and they want to get back to their lives. If you hate a game so much that you want to get it over with, why on earth are you logging in and supporting such a game? This is not a job where you HAVE to show up to get paid. Its a game that you are supposed to ENJOY playing as a pastime. "I ask for 5656757856+ AP because I have a life and find dungeon grinding boring. I really just want to get this over with ASAP so I can return to my life." <----Say some players. Stop supporting boring games! Get you behind on the forums and tell NCsoft to fix the dgn grind and make it more interesting. Since when was gaming supposed to be tedious and painful? But I am getting off topic here. Not everyone is unfriendly in all honesty. Its just harder to find nice people than it is a mean person. But if I had to log onto a game I hated only to have to grind a dungeon I was sick to death of (because this is apparently my 9 to 5 job that I must do to live and feed my family), I suppose I too would harass new players and those weaker than me in some sort of attempt to spread misery and make myself feel better about my condemnation to a game I hate. All the sarcasm aside, sometimes players are just tired. Have you ever assisted new players before? There are a LOT of them, and many of them tend to ask the same questions over and over again. That can get a bit annoying. Not all the time, just when your tiered. In some cases new players just don't listen. You tell them DO NOT do xyz. You start the dungeon and poof they doing XY and Z and now your cleaning up their mistake. In most cases it makes for some great stories and hilarious remember that time moments. But when your tiered it just pisses you off. lol Aside from that, the ability to create a welcoming community full of high levels is up to us the player base. We can choose to breath life into the community or kill it. Having a job, a life, or whatever it is anybody has going on doesn't suddenly excuse our poor attitudes and yes this includes me with all my sarcasm. There is no excuse to be outright nasty and hateful to others especially new players who are the seeds of life to MMO's. Those are usually bots. It is sometimes a sleeping player (I am so guilty of falling asleep while dungeoning), but often a sleeping player is found running into walls or some sort of movement that shows they are alive and fell asleep holding the W key. lol The only other options are straight leeches. People who hate playing games, but derive some sort of pleasure out of torturing themselves to play one. Or just lazy people in general.
  3. Request: No race specific classes

    Yun are the only class missing their own class, I don't really know why though. :/ Is it because there is no male counterpart I wonder?
  4. Request: No race specific classes

    I personally like the race only classes, it contributes to the overall world building for me. Sort of how we met those shadow walker people in the desert, its like a glimpse at Jin history for me. In most cases I don't like race specific classes. But with this game I do because the overall world they have created for the races is interesting. Although they have not given any solid lore about each races class specific battle style. That lyn with an ax is funny though. xD Going to chop you down by the ankles. lol
  5. DPS Meter is overall a good thing

    I am not particularly against the DPS meter, I can see the pros and cons for it, however you speak as if you have never even heard of an elitist, as if the words bully, troll, god complex, and toxic mean nothing. The words "they will understand" cannot be attached to an elitist. You do realize that an elitist is a person who feels elevated above others as if their kind are superior to all others. Elitist doesn't mean someone belonging to an elite. You can be an elite player and NOT be an elitist, and you can be a terrible player, but be an elitist. As stated earlier, elitist have an ego problem. To keep their egos up they need to degrade and belittle somebody in anyway they can. They already do it with the AP. Why do you think they are suddenly going to become reasonable people just because they have a DPS meter and understand the mechanics. Go ask any healer from any game and let them tell you how understanding their team was when an elitist DPS dies b.c he can't dodge enemy attacks. You won't find a lot of stories about how understanding elitist are for a reason. lol I keep rereading my post and no matter how I read it, I sure do sound salty. xD I agree, the idea does sound good on paper, but realistically as you said, it wouldn't go well for the already dying community. Nobody said you specifically were an elitist. I wish the world was as rose colored and breathtaking as you make it sound...But its not. Again, I am not against the idea, but realistically speaking, based on this community now and how they handle the smaller things like character viewing, it will just make things worst.
  6. DPS Meter is overall a good thing

    Look at how understanding elitist are with the character profile viewing ability. Next you are going to start telling people that most elitist don't have ego problems, but are simply misunderstood humble human beings only seeking inner peace. (sarcasm) In all honesty they should just move all the elitist to the mushin server and segregate them from the rest of the community by placing them in some sort of elite only server so they can have their little toxic MOBA like world without it affecting anybody else.
  7. Why don't you just buy the name change voucher and change her name? NCsoft is only going to put both vouchers together and up the price anyway, so just go buy it separately.
  8. Ok this really needs to stop. Saying but TW or JP, or CH have wardrobe free is not a legit argument to get wardrobe. Its nothing more than whining that someone else got something bigger and shiner and you (the community) are that immature 5 year old that wants it too just because. We are not CH, TW, or JP, so who cares what they got. We don't need to have what they have. We need to have our own good premium for the NA. Wardrobe is a bad business choice not because every other version gives it free, but because it does not encourages outfit sales. It instead forces players to think realistically: Do I really need all these outfits that I would sub? But what happens if I can't afford 1 month because they sell a bunch of outfits during a promo? Then I'd have to somehow survive on limited inventory-" <----That is way too much thinking you are forcing a consumer to do. Making a consumer think that hard about a product before buying it will not help your sales. If players automatically had wardrobe for free or if you made it that players could unlock the wardrobe by buying it, or spending x amount of cash, then players would aim to unlock it. With it unlocked players would automatically see an outfit they like and just buy it without all that deep thought causing them to realistically measure the needs vs want meter. Placing wardrobe as a sub: 1 - Shows that NCsoft knows their premium is terrible and that the only thing that could possible get anyone to buy into it are those looking for a exp boost or everyone who wants to collect outfits 2 - It honestly doesn't encourage people to buy the sub, it surely didn't encourage any of my friends. When the game first came out and I told my friend they would have to pay for wardrobe they said: " I guess I won't be buying any outfits then. I'll find 1 outfit I really really like and just wear that." <--- In most cases this is what players said. They didn't hop into forums and whine, they didn't contact NCsoft and demand change. Realistically speaking people just said "oh well for that" and just didn't bother with the sub. No sub means you are also not getting any cash in IM for outfits because why would anyone not subbed buy an outfit they can't even store? If wardrobe wasn't locked behind a sub NCSOFT would get cash from both subscribers and those not subbed but buying outfits. HOWEVER premium rewards are so bad that if they removed wardrobe, then pretty much nobody would buy it. In other words, NCSOFT can't remove wardrobe from sub until they actually make premium worth buying. In conclusion wardrobe being a sub is not bad because CH, JP, and TW get it free. Its bad because it literally stops outfit sales for players who if not for a sub wall would be tossing $ at them for outfits. It's nothing but a lazy attempt at cash garbing because NCwest has a bad premium that they never updated after servers stabilized. The current premium benefits are either obsolete, not very helpful and not worth paying for monthly so instead of improving it they decided to slap wardrobe in there. But it didn't work as well as they hoped because many players said oh well and simply just decided not to buy any outfits. B&S clearly aimed at milking cash using outfits and NCwest shot themselves in the foot by cutting off many players who'd have casually just tossed $ at the screen for the outfits.
  9. Causing prices to drop is not crashing the market. Players over pricing items to the point barely anyone can buy what they need is what crashes a market.
  10. Need motivation

    You can preview the breast implant bikini in the wardrobe F3.
  11. That sounds like NA. Always shooting itself in the foot and then blaming others for letting them have the gun in the first place. lol NCsoft is not responsible for the players greed, what sort of nonsense are you spewing. Not everyone finding gold is going to allow greed to define them. You the player are responsible for your own actions. You want to destroy the economy because you are greedy, that is all on you. That is not the fault of NCSOFT. That is like saying a casino is responsible for your gambling addiction or a liquor store is the one to blame for your alcohol addiction. Nobody stuck a gun to your head and forced you to gamble or drink, just like nobody forced you to sell the items over priced. It was all your choice, it is all your (Not literally you, namely the player base) fault. You can stand around and ask NCSOFT to help dig your sorry little greedy behind out of this mess, but it surely isn't anyones fault the community is in this mess except the community. This is why I HATE AH. I personally don't tend to follow the price of OP players, but when working with AH you sort of are pushed to do so because you can't control who you sell to. In most cases you end up selling your lower priced item to someone just looking to resell it. When players had player shops I was able to do business with certain people I choose to do business with, thus allowing for the greedy market to crash and burn, while providing a safe haven of reasonably priced items to a few players in need. With AH, can't do none of that.
  12. Current Benefits we have: Increased Gold Earned from Daily and Field Quests Usefulness: Useless Comments: When prices are 200 - 900 gold, then getting an extra 25 silver isn't really helping you out. Price hikes make this useless. The economy is at fault here and not so much this system. But it doesn't change the fact that its sort of useless. Increased XP Earned from Daily and Field Quests Usefulness: Sort of Helpful Comments: I was questing with a non-premium friend. I hit HM1 once all the quest ran out while they had to dungeon grind. I think they should have reached HM 1 using only the quest while I should have reached HM 2 or been close to that. What is the point of all these quest if its not even going to properly level players? This comes off feeling like the exp received from dailies and quest is reduced for non-premiums instead of the Exp being increased for the premiums. Increased Gold Earned & XP Earned from Combat Usefulness: Sort of Helpful Comments: Its there, but like I said already, price hikes & the feeling that the exp rate is dropped for F2P instead of just upped makes it not very rewarding. Extra Hongmoon Coins from Combining Usefulness: A little Comments: Again that feeling that they just dropped the RNG % rate for F2P appears. Someone here suggested giving premiums Hongmoon coins daily. Interesting. Perhaps every premium member who logs on should get 1 Hongmoon coin for everyday they log on. It would be like flier miles. The more you travel the more you accumulate until you can treat yourself to a free flight. The more you log in, the more you accumulate until you can treat yourself to something in the store. That is more incentive to log in then the current, I MIGHT get something I need in the daily dash today. Reduced Marketplace Commission Fees, Weapon Glamour Fees, Weapon Evolution and Breakthrough Fees Usefulness: Helpful Comments: Helps players keep a little more cash in their pocket. Someone said to remove the fees completely, but the fees are there as a gold sink. They are poor gold sinks, but gold sinks nevertheless Increased Marketplace Sell Slots & Currency Exchange Sell Slots Usefulness: convenient Comments: It is nice to be able to sell more stuff Increased Gathering and Crafting XP Usefulness: A little Comments: I can't tell the difference, but I have not reached tier 10 yet so maybe by the time I hit that it will be something amazing. Either that or I'll have nothing left to craft by the time I reach tier 10, thus rendering this useless. Faster Chi Recovery & Windstride Cooldown Usefulness: Convenient Comments: It’s not game breaking and that is good Wardrobe Deposit Usefulness: Counter productive Comments: Its counter productive because it discourages players from buying costumes. People who for whatever reason just don't do subscriptions can't toss $ at you for outfits because there is literally no way for them to store it. It is understandable that NCSOFT realizes that the current premium literally has nothing compelling in it to make people really want it, and that everybody wants wardrobe. But slapping it behind a subscription based pay wall is terrible. It doesn't suddenly force people to subscribe, instead it pisses people off. Premium should feel like a rewards system, not like some sort of storage bill that reminds you constantly that you have too much stuff and should learn to live without it. Here are some rewarding ways to slap a price tag on wardrobe: 1) Sell wardrobe to players who reach tier 4 or 5 (In others words spend at least $100 which is easy when you are collecting every outfit and casually tossing $10 to $20 a month at the game). Then at least people who won't sub but who would spend cash buying your outfits could continue to support the game by buying outfits. Thus allowing you to collect $ from subscribers and non-subscribers who just want to collect them all. 2) Offer unlocked wardrobe to players who buy the 1 year premium. Again use wardrobe as a way to thank players for having tossed $100 at the game, not hinder outfit sales. Wardrobe features that could be placed behind a sub wall: 1) Free outfit sharing inventory. None of that pay to mail nonsense. Why not allow someone paying a monthly fee to be able to share their outfits with their alts easily? Leave the pay to mail for the people not subbed. Exclusive Tab in Dragon Express & Dragon Express (Sell) Usefulness: convenient Comments: It is convenient Additional Daily Dash Spin Convenient It is nice to have but would be better if premium were allowed to go around again as someone mentioned earlier. Login Queue Priority Usefulness: Useless Comments: Servers have stabilized Premium Membership Icon Usefulness: n/a Comments: You either like it or hate it Class-Specific Dazzling Windwalk Usefulness: n/a Comments: Its nice and would be even nicer with a toggle on/off button as others have stated. Remote Storage Usefulness: convenient Comments: Don't have T10 but sure sounds convenient Hongmoon Store Discount On Select Items Usefulness: Sort of Comments: High Tier get better discounts, so I guess its fine once you reach a higher tier Other things that could be in premium: *Ability to change servers (one transfer per month subscribed. Ex: if you paid for 3 months, then you can transfer 3 times) *Subscribe for 3 months and get one complementary cosmetic change (1st 3 month = Gender swap, 6 months = race swap, 9 months = name change, 12 months = Character alteration voucher
  13. I don't care that they edited the Swastika's out. Its not harming the outfit, its not harming the story. There is no need to nitpick about EVERY little detail. All the outfits still have all the boobs and butt cheeks you could ever want hanging out and you fall all over yourself in blind rage because of the removal of a Swastika symbol? Oh the horror of censorship to these outfits that have not been censored and still portray the vision of the intended outfit design. Shame on you NCSOFT for complying with government laws or for realizing that it is better safe than sorry to remove the symbols. SHAME ON YOU NCSOFT! Shame on you! <-------- (Note: This paragraph is being sarcastic)
  14. Elitism and Dungeon Suggestions

    Yeah I doubt it. :/
