  1. Is bns still alive?

    It depends how you define dead. There will continue to be players wanting to play for some time so it won't truly be dead for quite some time, but on the other hand there could be issues of attracting and keeping players. Personally them half releasing Act 4 made me go from super interested in the game into bored really quickly since the grind was high and it felt like there was less to do than before Act 4 was a thing in the west. There are also other things that I haven't like such as promising no censorship and no p2w but heavily introduced gems and resources into the cash shop which isn't really a model I like. There was also issues like massive lag in super busy areas, "disconnects" or crashes even though my internet remained connected, the fact that opening blade and soul means that the anti cheat protection closes one of my other application for no good reason, and also the fact that it now spams me to change my time and date every single time I load the game (I've logged in purely for daily spins so far just in case) which doesn't really give me much reason to give the game another go. Then of course we have bots and toxicity. I can understand that it'd be a bummer having early content as a graveyard which either encourages people to be less social or be turned away from playing because it feels empty.
  2. Agreed. Frankly if it wasn't already dead, I'd be tempted to shoot the bloody thing myself by now.
  3. why are ap elitists a thing lmao

    The ignorance in this thread, including the OP... I tl;dr'd the thread, but I have to agree that ap elitism is a problem. If you're pushing away lower geared players then the experienced people eventually get bored, because people move on, and the newer players get bored coz they aren't getting accepted for content that everyone else did when they were lower AP. In the end you merge several servers in order to remain active. Personally I was doing fine and came back today and upgraded to 499 ap just to finish act 4 we were meant to do earlier, but probably won't be continuing for a variety of reasons. What's really sad is that the game will end up being less active and then people will move onto something else and repeat the exact same behaviour because they put personal success over the games and the community. Having your own custom groups is fine, but lets be honest, a large number of people take those AP requirements as word and makes autoqueue crappier. I've had people take the whole group hostage refusing to take part in just a moonwater dungeon when I was trying to gear up an alt with the release of the warlock. It was quite pathetic.
  4. The censoring starts NOW

    I wouldn't say more enjoyable, just more varied and customisable, though customisation and cosmetics although nice, isn't really something I'd personally describe as "enjoyable". I just think it's unfair to judge someone so harshly. Calling others pedos that has been mentioned previously in this thread is a big accusation to make. I also don't see why people are so defensive over imaginary characters, as long as they're not going after real children (which the lyn aren't) then no harm is really being done. At least no more harm the violence in a lot of games that would be criminal if we compare it to real life. Though at the end of the day, even if people did want it, doesn't mean that the developers would agree that it's fitting. The fact that this is in other regions is probably the main argument in this thread. People may not feel as left out if other regions never had it in the first place. I see people feel left out for the most bullshit of reasons. I do feel like the western world is too politically correct over a few areas and think that in general the point the finger attitude is incredibly toxic. Of course there is the side that some people would want sexualised lolis. After all some people had loli nudes when you could have custom avatars in game. But that's another topic. Anyway, I'll let them argue the points for why they want it. At the end of the day such costumes cause no harm but the publisher and developers have the right to decide whether it is something they want as part of their product. Personally I don't pay much attention to other peoples character models generally.
  5. The censoring starts NOW

    I find it quite concerning how many people are linking what they view as childlike, to sexualisation. Do preteens at the beach turn them on or something and they're trying to deny it to seem like they're normal or something? I'd say that linking a race like this to children and linking them to sexualisation is a big issue to have. Personally I'm not too bothered, I haven't really even played for months, though I should at least finish act 4 (I think it is?). Plus my main was a Yun. Realistically there should be a slider on these sorts of things just for customisation's sake without it needing to be linked with sexualisation, though as I said earlier, I wouldn't be surprised if the costume didn't come. Though to be fair there already is a costume with lyn boobs so it wouldn't be anything new. Though personally I never saw the game as sexualised as other people seem to view it. While in this case I don't share the same enthusiasm for the costume, I can somewhat understand feeling that missing out on something others have based on principle would inspire argument. Like I didn't really have a problem with the storyline myself until I found out that things have been altered to where it didn't feel true to the original. Anyway, I think a lot of people here need to grow up. Why make a less enjoyable atmosphere? It only pushes people away. I'm a little tired about seeing it generally in gaming and has been shown quite a lot here. I feel like gaming isn't as rewarding as it used to be :(
  6. The censoring starts NOW

    While I'm not really surprised that the costume wasn't released, I hope that facepalm was reserved for yourself. The argument was about lyns looking like children, when talking about hong being an example against that, they were obviously talking in general. The fact that hong can change form is completely irrelevant to the argument. Considering western attitudes, they possibly are trying to avoid criticism and possible legal action since lyns are more likely to look childish than other races. That's more of an issue with the western society though being a little prudish. What you seem to be doing is finding excuses for your prejudiced behaviour. Anyway Lyns are cute which does not necessarily mean young and it is possible to make more adult/elderly looking lyns. It is a shame that people don't have the freedom to customise their characters how they like. Though personally I'm more disappointed at how they lied about the censorship in the first place and it's impact that it had on for example the act 2 ending, which could have been more powerful. It really is a shame when I can't trust the word of the team.
  7. this is why ncsoft needs to put in a gear check!

    I really wanted to like this game but I'm not sure I have any reason anymore. One of the reasons being the egoistical elitists such as the OP who project all of the blame on others. We all get people who aren't as experienced or geared, but if you're not going to take any of the responsibility then you're going to stay at your crappy level while relying on others to be good in order to succeed at the same time as look down on everyone else. Of course there are also the bots and the grind became boring in the new module for me so I took a (possibly indefinite) break.
  8. Giving up on this game.

    > Talks about people being judgemental > Proceeds to be judgemental Genius. Hopefully they punish the scammer at least. Anyway it's not really too surprising they have this stance. Purchasing as a gift is not implemented as a safe trading way so it's pretty much do so at your own risk. Unfortunately there are going to be a lot of toxic people willing to exploit others. I can understand that you'd be frustrated, but there's never an excuse to be hostile. All it means is that you're not much better than the other scum. Now you can either realise that you've been overreacting and taking it out on those that don't deserve your hostility. Or continue on with your stubborn wrath. One leads to improving oneself, the other leads to lowering yourself.
  9. I like grind but...

    Yeah I'm actually I bit confused. I was actually very happy with level 45 content despite it still being doing the same stuff each day. I'm not sure if it's due to me taking it easy or because I was always working towards upgrading my gear whereas now I'm just saving forever for one piece and so my attention is more focused on how repetitive it is. It's a big difference in opinion I've had in the game.
  10. EU Maintenance times...

    Noon = 12:00 midday, Afternoon = Right after 12 Afternoon = PM Noon = 12:00pm Simples :D. Regardless I'm willing to bet there will be someone who complains and wonders why it doesn't revolve around their personal playtime.
  11. Is new event gona be p2w again?

    I don't claim otherwise. Though I do think supply is on the weak side. I didn't think I'd get bored but with this module that changed quickly. Though I'll still be seeing how things go and await for the rest of the module.
  12. Is new event gona be p2w again?

    Tbh if they were bound it'd be pretty shitty. I don't really want extra spaces taken up by 2 different versions of an item.
