  1. Blade & Ghoul: Items and Systems Update Preview

    Ship is more than half way under the water my man.
  2. The title says it all... is incredible that this *** team believes the biggest issue in the game is the amount of gold players can get out of doing the only stuff that actually "produces" gold in game. You all trying to dream real big on milking people's pockets but you can't even get out a working patch properly... leave alone set up a stable/productive economy where new and old players could grow... but instead they only decide to nerf gold drop from quest and challenges just for the sake of their morbid exchange system, also killing the community's growth in the process making bad gameplay wise decisions like half of the new changes included in this last patch. If you worry so much about how much gold is produced in game for the sake of your exchange system preventing ncsoft from losing money, and you think gold production is the biggest problem in game related to that... you are totally wrong... start by fixing your servers once and for all and replace personnel by new people able to deliver work of Quality... your focus should be on making the community happy displaying quality in the way your game is handled... and hey words fly... people will notice and you might even get back users. And please... try to not look so bad... show some knowledge about your own game... the new "Difficulty System" is totally wrong... I hope the boss take notice already and have some heads rolling.

    Brazil's population is actually not that small... they have over 209 million people (300+m in US)... which is still a big number... and yeah, they have a lot of gamers. Some other gaming companies, specially from EU usually have servers in there... at least they used to as far as I know because it's been a while since I tried new games. Other thing is that Brazil is a pretty big country... if you want to check and see the real size of any place you can do so on this site:!MTY4MDM1MTY.MzQxNTA2NA*MTQ3NDYxNTc(MjA4OTkwNw~!CONTIGUOUS_US*MTA4NTg0NzI.MjMwNzQ5MDY(MTc1)MA~!IN*NjY1ODI4Mw.NzUwMjgzNQ)MQ~!CN*OTI1Njc0Nw.Nzk1NzYxNQ(MjI1)Mg~!BR*Nzg1NTM0OQ.MTQ0Njk0NzI(MzAw)Mw I'm not BR by the way... just saying since what you said caught my atention...
  4. Starcaller RNG Box

    Excuse me? having to pay for the boxes and for the reward is fare for you ? right then, keep taking it from b. Those are suppose to be rng boxes... they just came up with an idea to make an even bigger Gold Sink... Even Trove itself is debatable on the way you have to pay gold for the rewards instead of you being able to pick up freely whatever is it that you have won... because let me tell you something about trove that you should already know: you pay for the keys, also for the expansions + you have to pay gold for the rewards which in most cases whatever it is that you pick wont be cheaper than you just purchasing from npc or f5 whatever is it that you are after... A vivid example of what I'm trying to say here is about the Legendary Gem rolls that you can get very often from trove. Most of the time you have the option to buy 1 legendary gem by 5g... (cheap right?) think twice since you have already paid 49 hm/nc coins for it besides the gold... same deal with materials and the rest of the other trash items that you get from trove... if you just purchase 100 keys you might get lucky and land a good 3 star crit that will be worth something real or if you are just unlucky like me you wont get anything from 450 keys besides 2 -2 stars crit were the best option to choose from was a pack of 5 (yes 5) legendary gems... that by the way happened 3 troves a go to me and after that I have never tried again to do Trove... and yes I've been here since the start: beta tester all the time premium member max rank (that was another scam by the way) which I stopped purchasing premium after these trove events. Right now I'm just playing the game casually because I like it... but I grew tired of all those scams that they are running on us with that "rng" so no more money from me to them. period. If you agree to all of this and you feel like that is fair for you having to pay 2 and 3 times for the rewards that you "might" get after spending real money? fine by me, everyone can do whatever they want with their time and money... but that doesn't change the fact that this is one of the main reasons the game has been dying so fast... (because a lot of people just don't care and they keep supporting this kind of abuse and as they (ncsoft) keep making profit from it, they just keep pushing and pushing to get more money out of those people that don't care / or they doesn't stop to think about how they have been manipulated to be part of a vicious cycle of pure spending money) while the rest of the community just give up and quit because they can not keep up (a vivid example of this is the amount of people that actually do battle grounds at competitive level... new gear+trove, new gear+ rng box). Anyways went a bit out of topic... but the main point is that this is another gold sink scam and I don't think that it is fair having to pay to claim whatever it is the reward you are getting from an rng box which you have already paid with nc coins#realmoney... is not like you are purchasing a box that will give you 100% something... in this case you are purchasing many boxes to see if you get lucky and roll something good... so if you get lucky why do you have to pay top gold for it? it could be 100g or it could have been 10k gold... it doesn't make it right.
  5. Where are we now?

    Yep, I wonder why the community (what is left of it) has a negative attitude about everything ncsoft does now a days... it might have something to do with them not learning from their mistakes and scams?
  6. Starcaller RNG Box

    what's new? They are a sneakier Trove 2.0 with over 60 different loot tables with only 11 good pouches roll among them which need a big ridiculous amount of gold to be opened.
  7. Blade & Soul is officially p2w

    and we all are suppose to believe that you stopped, made some parses with your ET3 and the event weapon before coming here to post your biased opinion without any fact behind it whatsoever. Just because the 1 day version has a bit more ap than the GC9 does not make it better by default... the buff from that weapon works different than the other in game weapons which makes them a bit worse than a GC weapon... they do give a bit more ap than a Aransu 9 but is not that great and of even less value for some classes.
  8. More difficult events are good!

    Difference is that Circle of Sundering and the other dungeons that you are mentioning did not have an unfair timer. They were and are mostly mechanical based and doable with low gear if you know mech.
  9. More difficult events are good!

    you can say whatever you want but in my own experience this is not a fair event for the 80% of the player base. In my case as a returning player that was out of the game for about 5 months (was sick of all the p2w bullsht... and still) I find it impossible to kill the last stage of Longi with my gear as it is rn having a VT/TT geared Character with some TT stuff, say: Accessories + 5 Piece of TT Soulshields + Awakened Tiger stage 3 + Aransu 9 Axe. Reward wise the event is ok, but what kind of player can really claim that reward and make good use of it other than just stock pile gems, etc. for future updates just because they are fully maxed out? a Person like me that is semi geared could make good use of them but guess what? can not kill the last stage. Looks like the bright Idea that NCsoft had was to make a farm-able event that could only be done by the top tier spenders which would not bother that much on farming it since they would not really need. I have to say that all of you in ncsoft are doing a good job on killing the game for a while now... an example of that is you having to do another server consolidation because once again there are not enough players to fill up 2 servers...
  10. I have used 2 name change vouchers in the past and after more than 5 months my char can't be found by searching in f2... so it is an old problem of yours.
  11. So much things to fix and they only do a routine server maintenance... that's how much they care. Most of them are simple things they could fix on the go with a sql querry just like they do when there is money lost involved. That is how much they care.
  12. I did stop playing the game since the last update, they have literaly made too hard for us being able to farm what is needed to progress in this game. Right now if I were playing would be able to only play about 3 hours on week days... so why bother in playing anymore if you get nothing from doing dc/grinding dungeons that no longer have a decent reward (is not like before was good neither but now is way worst). Ncsoft west should stop releasing the same patches that korea does... the only thing they do here is to translate the game...
  13. Legendary Elements

    Bump... If they used to be too expensive by this old date, now we all should just quit the game since the last changes have made them more than 3 times pricier than before. 30 Elements used to be 600g vs 2000g+ if you have to boy all mats from the market. GG ncsoft... you made them more accessible to all
  14. Radiant Energy Exchange Update

    You have no word or trust as company with your user.. you are not loyal to us. But let me congratulate you, this was a smart move by part of ncsoft to eliminate gold from the server: 1- Announcing that Radiant Energy would be exchanged by powders making Radiant Energy's prices to go up in the market (jebaited) 2-Then doing changes at last moment about giving a poor amount of Gold instead of powders to the people that paid over 15g+ for those Radiant Energys and "going through clean" by "Announcing and giving a reason that we don't care about".
  15. I agree with the original post. The drop rate for Asura Ember, Offals and other Skill Books is too low... I've been around this game most likely since launch and I have ran a lot of times all mentioned dungeons and I can asure you that I can count with one hand the amount of Skill items that have dropped in my group. Shoguns 1 Ember in over 650 runs across my alts and main Necro 2 books in over 350 runs Avalanche den 2 books in over... a lot in all my alts and main Nexus 1 book in over 300 runs across my alts and main Shattered mats 2 offal in about 250 runs Gloom 2 offals over 250 runs Is fine for this item to be rare drops but they are most likely "imposible drops" than rare.
