I wonder if NcSoft is even reading this thread? If you are:
Have you ever seen any topic that went over 5 pages in under an hour? YOU should know by now how mad are your customers. YOU want profits, we as players and customers can understand. However, lying straight up to our faces aren't the ways. People trade Radiant for the hope of GEMS, and now you just screw them simply for your benefits. Your servers are already down to two servers, so there would be no surprise if the population shrink down to 1/2 after this really retarded changes. Your EULA is not always on your side FYI, if the community is pissed enough, someone will find the flaw on it. I hope you at least reconsider the rate. Maybe instead of 1:1 ratio, make it to 1:2 or 1:3. Only 10 golds, at least have someone scout the fking market. Don't sit up there and judge.
