  1. It's pretty stupid that they're removing the option to get to siren or pirate. The logic is that siren and pirate require farming of 45 dungeons that nobody runs anymore, but those dungeons need to be farmed for accessory upgrades anyway, and new players should have to go through all the steps and dungeons on their path to end game content.

    Sorry, but we aren´t talking about the standard facial animations that are in the game right now.

    Look in character select screen, zoom closer. There, my char´s pupils are moving and even adjusting, eyelids are opening and closing, mouth area has little movements which bring the face to life. These little extras are missing in the game currently, there are animations, but they are reduced. I am playing with all settings maxed plus enhanced (with SSAA on my oc´ed  6700k and oc´ed 970). It´s not that.

    Sometimes, it´s the little details that matter and i feel in BnS it´s the character detail which ads a lot to the immersion of the game. ;)

    You're talking about the lip twitch and smirk on lyn, and whatever else it is on other races.

    Really ? I visit the forums very often and till this day have yet to see an ACTUAL Ncsoft person say anything.. And no forum mods dont count. Im really at the last straw..Love this game but fukk me this is getting outta hand.

     

     

    Almost every bot i see has Premium.. Assuming the only way to buy premium is $$$ (NOT SURE) then banning all the bots would be bad for them. WIN / WIN for NCSOFT imo with people spending $$$ in the shop and bots buying premium by the hundreds, And now the gold convert thing..lol

     

    The mods on this forum are the NC Staff, they're just labeled "mod" for some unexplained reason. There are no player volunteer mods on the forum as far as i know.

    I would have no reason to, unless I see you constantly spamming a gold selling website.

     

    I already mentioned one, and others have mentioned some other companies that recruit volunteer moderators.

     

    Wait, so are you seriously complaining about the gold-seller spam bots? Because those are pretty insignificant to the overall health of the game. It is the player bots, out in the game world killing monsters and doing arena all day which are actually affecting the game experience of players. The gold-seller-spam-bots literally sit in a town spamming, those are dealt with fast enough already by the staff, and most certainly don't need your help.

    Simply disconnecting them from the server when they can simply log back in, is denying them service?

     

     

    YES! It is!

     

    Do you see how much complaining occurs when the servers crash? People asking for refunds of premium and such? Your suggestion is only going to result in abuse of power, mistakes made by people who are NOT legitimate, NOT backed by NC Staff/payroll, Not accountable in any way, and who will cause countless legitimate players to be furious with actual NC Soft for allowing it to happen, leading to more tickets, more work for support, to correct the mistakes of these volunteers and dole out reparations to people affected by the fallibility of these volunteers.

     

    Honestly this discussion is pointless because your proposal will never happen in a real MMO like this one, as opposed to some junky browser game, no offense.

    That is why we are discussing in-game moderators and not game masters. They are 2 completley different things like you have mentioned and what we are discussing is somewhat different to take. We do not want to take peoples service away, bot or not but instead have a more advance report system and more people (volunteers) dealing with reports on bots and having to be authorized instead of having the paid members of staff have to go through all of the reports to see which are valid and which aren't on spammers/bots and then deal with them. It is making their service quicker and more reliable by having volunteers be the first line of defence and then anything which requires taking away privileges be done by paid staff which then it cannot be abused. 

     

     

     

    There is no such thing as an in game moderator. Just because you are calling it that does not make it so. 

     

    And again, now, watered down, stripped of every idea you presented in this thread, giving these "moderators" no power -- you are describing the report button. Which we already have. 

     

    Please stop being dense.

    I am talking about volunteers in general, doesn't matter if it's in-game or not.

    YOU stated that volunteers can't be trusted, and I was giving an example that some volunteers CAN be trusted.

     

    Limiting what powers they have will help reduce the risk of abuse.

    Disconnecting or muting players instead of allowing them to use the ban hammer and reporting it to the staff so it can be dealt with quicker, etc.

     

    If I was a moderator I would disconnect and mute you right now because your idea is terrible and you are being rather pig-headed about it. I doubt you would be understanding or appreciative of my choice, though. See how that works?

     

    The reason bot reports take so long to be dealt with is because unlike your suggestion NC staff needs actual proof, and to be truly certain that the player character in question is in fact a bot. You are demanding that unstaffed anybodies have the ability to deny service to players based on nothing but their own personal opinion and knee-jerk reactions with zero evidence. 


  8. Moderating a text forum and playing the role of an in-game GM with GM capabilities are completely different things. What you people are describing is an in-game GM, Game Master, not a "moderator." Look up the definition of moderator. It's specific to an "online forum or discussion." Moderators on a forum never have the ability to deny service. The most they can do is delete a post or lock a thread. All bans, temporary or otherwise have to be done by the GM or administrator of a forum/site, and even then I have never seen a forum where mods did not abuse their power, silencing people they didn't like. 

     

    This is a terrible idea and should never, ever happen. 

     

    People on NCstaff, aka actual GMs should be in game checking bot hotspots (the lake at monkeystone), and monitoring the starter areas. But absolutely no way, never, ever, should "volunteer players" be given any form of power over other volunteer and paying players. You want to volunteer to be good-guy bot-hunter? There's already a mechanic for that. The report button.

    No because it would take a week and its just faster to get the insignia's since i have multiple level 45 chars to help.

     

    No offense to support but they take quite awhile.

     

    I do recommend they change the insignia's for it to viridian valor stones though so new players that do mess up like this can fix their mistake easily.

     

    Right so let's change the entire game because your friend made a stupid rookie mistake. Honestly he just got to jadestone? It would be faster to delete and remake his character at that rate. You've been told how to get the insignaias. All you're doing at this point is whining. Say thank you for the help offered here, and go solve your problem, because posting over and over complaining about it isn't going to change anything. 

     

    Support has generally been pretty fast (a couple of hours) with restoring items, if threads on reddit are to be believed. But by all means, continue to ignore the obvious solution in favor of making things more difficult for everyone involved.

    Ah, I misunderstood. Thanks for the clarification, Kitty.

    Not sure how you misunderstood. I was pretty damn clear. 

     

    Thanks kitty.

     

    This is really disgusting. And founders who bought the master pack got basically r9 for 120 bucks?

     

    This premium model is garbage. Too little reward for too long, and too much expected to get any returns on it. 


  11. I have premium right now and it's expiring in 10 days. Now that the queue is gone on my server I am not sure if I should bother getting premium again. I want outfits, and NEED inventory and skill book tabs and character slots and I cannot afford to *cricket* away my money on both the premium and the stuff i need. At rank 2 the premium doesn't even give me anything worthwhile. There's really no point in having it.

    How has the ability to choose the good or bad side been removed if the story can continue? Does this mean only the good side remains after patch, and how will this work for people who have already chosen the bad side now since there is no choice unless one leaves the quest uncompleted?

     

    Um yea I'd like an official answer to this... 


  13. Oh I see now. Anyway, no need to call me names because OP made a frantic post not actually explaining anything. "This guy changed the loot rules to master loot and took all the drops" would have been a lot clearer than complaining about the guy's fully upgraded gear and how much gold he has.  Not sure what the OPs words in his post have to do with the complaint at all to be honest, now that it's been explained. 


    Anyway, submit a ticket with your screenshot.

     

    You can also post it on Reddit, with the guy's name. Reddit doesn't seem to have any rules about naming and shaming, and all of the prohibited talk that the mods disallow on these forums is happening over on reddit. 


  14. I quit tera because come end-game every dungeon was SOLELY reliant upon use of split-second iframes to get through every boss. I was extremely disappointed to see that in this game, in the last dungeon (Blackram Supply Chain) you're forced to rely on iframes to get through at least 2 of the bosses. 

     

    BnS has better char creation, tera has better skills and UI customization. Tera might have genderlock but I really disliked class-race lock in this game. Extremely limiting.
