Consolidated Issues that NC Soft are aware of and may work on

Recommended Posts

skyy   

Making this thread so there might be a possibility that people will check here first before duplicating threads. Ironic if this topic was already made and I was making the duplicate :P

 

Hopefully, people can post suggestions here and the community managers can relay this information to the higher-ups.

 

Also, please complain on this thread, as 99% of the front page of these forums are complaints and negative remarks.

 

Things on the Left: Current Issues

Things on the Right: Semi-solved / Solved Issues

 

A. Spammers

Problem: Gold sellers will be rampant in any free-to-play/subscription based game. They plague players in trying to purchase from their site and annoy them by having to continually block them. Solutions are temporary, but hopefully there are precedents play that will continually combat this issue.

 

Solution: NC Soft is upgrading their spam protection. The recent patch allowed the option to "block spammers" which automatically reports them as well as a new and improved block list and the option to delete all off the list once the spammers have been banned. You can see the improvements here . Please be patient as the ones behind the spamming are pretty much just as crafty or craftier than the NC Soft employees. As of now, there is considerable less spamming than what there was when servers opened. They will find a way to work around the defenses put into place and hopefully NC Soft will continue to combat this annoying issue for the community. Aion, a game also owned by NC Soft, has been around for 6 years. The botting / gold-selling spam has not been under control until about 6 months ago. Please don't take 6 years to find a solution for Blade and Soul!

 

B. Bots and Hacks

Problem: Bots feed gold sellers or individual crafty players who are able to mindlessly farm gold and ruin the economy / market (or make things cheaper for new players). Bots combined with hacking are able to teleport to mining/water nodes and have gatherables on lock down.

 

Solution: Report them as bots. I saw 3 destroyers running around yesterday auto attacking and following each other. In Korea and other versions, this will only get worse and become completely futile. Game Guard is put into place for hacking, but I'm guessing this anti-hack program is a complete joke. I remember Maple Story days when a new update to Game Guard would come out, hacks to bypass were out 3 minutes after servers became live. Hopefully, NC Soft finds a solution for this issue.

 

C. Razer Synapse and Razer products

Problem: I don't currently own any Razer products as the one mouse I bought broke in a month of playing League of Legends; however, there are a plethora of posts concerning Razer-related crashing. Apparently what happens is that Razer Synapse will cause crashing 15 minutes into the game unless you disable it as soon as you are logged in. The recent "fix" doesn't seem to work and people using Razer products (which is a large bandwagon) are annoyed.

 

Solution: I use Logitech. No, but seriously, NC Soft is working with Razer and HOPEFULLY will come up with a solution NC Soon, err.. Soft soon (I think the Aion community may have coined this term, Lineage?). They have updated and said they are working directly with Razer and will hopefully find a "definitive" fix for this. I feel for ya'll. Sounds like a real PITA issue -.-

 

D. Costume prices are too high + Account wardrobe / warehouse

Problem: Costume prices are beginning to hit $14~20 and there's a large part of the community that is unsatisfied. There's no account wardrobe. There's no account warehouse. If I have to play 7 characters, but I like the costumes on all 7 blah blah expenditures.

 

Solution: First of all, this is a free-to-play game. Servers, employees, updates, time spent, etc. ALL TAKE TIME. Time is money. There are games where skins are only ONE-time uses and you have to constantly buy them which ends up being equivalent to what you spend on Blade and Soul. On the other hand, these costume prices do seem a little ridiculous. You can only use costumes on 1 character, they are not account bound and the item supposedly coming out to mail them to other characters are "consumable" and are probably going to cost anywhere between $3-5. I don't think this is a solution, but rather people will see this as another money expenditure. Account wardrobe / warehouse would assist a lot of players into making these money-conscious decisions and would even make players spend a little more, knowing their costumes can be traded among their own characters for reuse. Let's face it, the #1 reason you play this game is to look good while you pvpve.

 

Updated 2/11/16:

"Will there ever be account wide wardrobes?"

 

Babbletr0n responded in live stream 29:31

 

E. Faction Balance

Problem: I don't know of a "balanced" server, but maybe people could enlighten me. I currently play on Poharan and the server is currently heavily dominated by blues. If you aren't a Cerulean, you aren't going to be getting BW's, terrors, etc. There's probably about 4 times the number of blues than there are reds in open world anywhere you go.

 

Solution: Suggestions would be nice here. I know there are leveled guilds that have already invested money and time to become prominent. Maybe offer incentives for the opposite faction that aren't overpowered. The first thing to do would be to get an accurate number (not counting bots) and to actually play the game on the servers to see which sides are being dominated.

 

F. Warlock release / Character expansion / New class Korea ( Qi Master )

Problem: WE GET IT. You want warlock. I want warlock. Hell, we all want warlock to be released. Even if it is the nerfed version, it still looks like a hella' fun class to play. With warlock coming out soon and the new class in Korea, 7 slots is 2 little 2 little. (9 total characters possible, 7 maximum slots)

 

Solution: Wait. They said on stream awhile ago it would be a "few months" after release. We can complain a LOT. They will still keep their itinerary. Please give us 9 total character slots available. Hell, we'll buy the expansion tickets, just need the max character slots expanded! Warlock items also drop in game. Save them for the upcoming release :)

Updated 2/11/16: Warlock release date

Babbletr0n responded in live stream 30:52 - Basically, "soon"

 

G. RNG boxes (separate thread / community poll)

Problem: Did NC Soft promise that there would be no RNG boxes? Anyway, many of the players are disappointed in the fact that these even exist. They picked this game to enjoy and know for a fact they wouldn't have to gamble their money away and compete with wallet warriors.

 

Solution: Sorry. We all know game companies will put out RNG boxes. They are an AMAZING source of income for the game and people have a natural desire to gamble. Nothing will be done about it, but I will give you this special box of tissues. It's functional as it is imaginary. I would like to be proven wrong, but we all know that game publishers have to produce numbers and the only numbers that matter is $.

 

H. Master Loot

Problem: You, sir, are a d. I can't believe this is even possible and there are no consequences for doing such a below the belt, kick in the balls, falcon punch to the crotch, action. The problem is that there are party leaders who are switching the loot to master loot before boss getting downed. The even worse part is that there is currently no consequence for ninja looting. We all know what it means when you are "investigating." Kappa.

 

Solution: Find a guild/clan/legion. Find a friend. I understand, sometimes you want to pug, but that comes with risks. Also, to change the loot, please put it up to a vote for the entire party. That way, if people want the item to be master looted, it was a group conscious decision. We've had an official response from Rukkirii, one of our community managers: 

On 2/2/2016 at 1:24 PM, Rukkirii said:

Greetings everyone,

 

We've forwarded the feedback regarding changing the loot type as a maliciously act towards other party members to the development team and they are looking into ways to address this behavior. We'll be sure to provide any updates whether the team has any plans on implementing measures against this behavior.

 

To those who encounter this behavior, we highly encourage reporting these players to the support team in the meantime, and they will be able to investigate these players further.

 

"Name and shame" isn't allowed on the forums. Mayhaps a "public" spreadsheet is needed to get the word out on these idiots who are ninja looting from others. That merry potter recipe is worth quite the penny... Report malicious intent users.

 

Updated 2/11/16

Babbletr0n responded in live stream 48:34 "PLAY NICE."

 

I. FPS Optimization

Problem: If you go anywhere with 10+ characters, you will notice a decrease from max FPS to 7 and experience a brief screen freeze for about 8 seconds.

 

Solution: "I have 100 titan graphic cards and 100.384 overdoubletriplequadruple clocked 100000 trillion cores twin turbo liquid nitrogen cooled pasta art chocolate chip cookies lobster but still use razer products blah blah blah." We get it. You have a godly computer and this shouldn't be happening. We are getting an optimization patch soon and hopefully will solve issues concerning effects/characters on screen and fix the FPS issue.

 

J. Oceanic Servers

Problem: None.

 

Solution: Petition. You can visit your fellow peeps here. You can join the petition here. There is no current mindset to get an oceanic server. The community has had official responses and petitions are the only things you can do to help express your interests!

 

K. Blackwyrm / raid boss contribution

Problem: I did "100 million damage" and didn't get contribution.

 

Solution: Do more damage. Stay alive.

 

L. DPS Meter

Problem: None.

 

Solution: It would be nice to have one. Even a third party one approved by NC Soft would be great. There will be the few who say "you are playing the wrong game if you want a DPS meter." These are also the people who can't hold their own in DPS. Yes, there are some classes who are considered "support" and grapple/phantom grip and during this window miss out on 6 seconds of dps. That is all taken into consideration by people who are at the very least intelligent. Winning on the meter isn't the issue or of much importance (yes, e-peen battles), but it's more or less the lines of is there someone getting horrendously carried and if so, perhaps could use some advice on his gear and build of skills.

 

M. Porn .gif or images in Character Info

Problem: Yes, it's possible. No, it's not allowed.

 

Solution: Report them.

 

N. Premium Membership Benefits

Problem: Not worth.

 

Solution: Add stuff. Account wardrobe would be nice for higher tier especially because getting past level 5 membership is spending hundreds of dollars. The only benefit of premium membership is the icon, the windwalking effect, selling items anywhere, queue priority. All these things add up to nothing. Please relook the rewards given through the membership.

O. 7 day character deletion

Problem: This exists?

 

Solution: Make it reasonable. We've had an official response from Babbletr0n, assistant producer:

On 2/3/2016 at 2:26 PM, Babbletr0n said:

Thanks for the feedback, we will have news regarding this subject very soon.  All I have to say for now is that it is not as simple as it seems at first glance and that the deletion timer was not designed to force you to do anything, it is the same deletion timer as it is on every version in every region.

 

P. Clan Functionality + Clan Suggestions (by Sykess)

Problem: Clans are a large part of any MMORPG, and for a game that came out years ago, Blade and Soul may need to keep up with features other games currently have.

 

Solution: 

  • Kick feature: Currently the kick feature is a simple "Uninvite" that you just have to know is associated with removing a person from the guild. It's not intuitive at all.
    Solution: Change text to "Remove from guild" "Guild Kick" or some other text that is more easily identifiable as a guild function.
  • Clan Sort: Level is repeated twice in this function. with one being a sort by the characters level, and the other by their rank in the clan.
    Solution: Change the Level text to "Rank" or some other text.
  • Last Online: This is not a feature yet, but as leader of a clan this tool is indispensable. With Blade & Souls high item requirements for ranking up as well as gold needed I cannot maintain an active clan without knowing if some members are inactive or not.
    Solution:A tool that simply tells the last time they were online as seen in many other MMO's would be of great help.
  • Clan Advisor: Currently the "Officer" position is limited to one person. As I run my clan with multiple officers ( generally 3-4 so people don't have to be online ALL the time) this causes problems. I wish to provide the distinction that ranking up gives from recruit to veteran, however I'm unable to do that if I have to reserve the veteran rank for those I would normally put in the Officer/Advisor position.
    Solution: Allow multiple people to be appointed to "Advisor."
  • Clan Notice:  Currently you're unable to use apostrophes in the clan notice board. if you use one it will replace it with &quot.
    Solution: Unsure.
  • Clan Log: Another suggestion. Since clans require a large amount of donations to progress a log so we can see who donates what, as well as other general things like members joining and leaving would be very helpful.

 

Q. Name Change / Reservation for 1 year (by jwhennies)

Problem: Name change vouchers make it to where you can't use the name for a year.

 

Solution: Fix please! Update by Babbletr0n (assistant producer)

On 2/4/2016 at 3:43 AM, Babbletr0n said:

This is currently being discussed with the development team, we definitely agree that 1 year is too long and we are working on it.

 

R. Daily Limit (40) Upgrades

Problem: I want to do more than 40 dailies because I want to play this game WAY MORE than the average player.

 

Solution: Upgrade the limit! (I suggest making an alt character). The official response was in stream today. There is currently no thought of upgrading the daily limit.

 

S. Open World PvP

Problem: If you've ever leveled a character and tried doing your 1 quest at certain camps, there are level 45's camping level 20's.

 

Solution: There might be some disagreement on this, but there is literally no reward for killing level 20's. Maybe place a tag on some of these players griefing level 20's?

 

T. Party Functionality

Problem: There is currently no official "vote kick" option for afk'ers, leechers, disconnections, and bots.

 

Solution: Add one please! We all have pugged runs where we get the one person (or bot) who decides to afk until the last boss, gets loot without contributing and decides to roll only on the Merry Potter recipe that drops. There currently is no punishment for these players who decide to take advantage of party members and benefit without putting in any work themselves.

 

U. Transmutation of Outfits using Fabric / High Quality Fabric (by Ysaera)

Problem: When failing other transmutations, your materials are not used. However, when "succeeding" the fabric transmutation instead of obtaining a costume, your fabrics are used and you get 1 fabric in return.

 

Solution: Is this intentional NC Soft? We have yet to hear an official answer except that the issue is "under investigation." As always, any update would be nice!

 

V. Instant Escape during Combat

Problem: Players are abusing this mechanic of escaping while being killed.

 

Solution: Place a cast time of 10~15 seconds on the function or make it usable only out of combat. In open world combat, when players are about to lose an engagement they are using this method of escape to prevent themselves from being killed. It's considered an abuse of a mechanic, because the function is not being used as intended which is to be used when stuck in an environmental error.

 

w. Valentine's Day Outfits

Problem: Will we be getting the Valentine's Day Outfits and Weapon skins available for Japan?

 

Solution: Yes! Their most recent twitch stream (11:22 costumes / 45:06 weapon skins) says we will be getting the outfits and weapon skins as well as an event (kills/quests/something along the lines).

 

X. Ping Window

Problem: There is none.

 

Solution: We've seen the live stream! Give us a ping window just like the GM's have! ... please :D (just a small one not the entire window)

 

Y. ...

 

 

Z. ...

 

 

AA. ...

 

 

----------------------------------------------------------

 

 

There are a lot of issues the community has against the game itself and NC Soft. Hopefully this list will get shortened as time goes on and the game will progress in a positive fashion instead of a downhill like many are professing. Good luck to all of us :)

You forgot one. Having to buy Ncoins to be able to mail items back and forth between your characters. This is a problem I have. The only use I have for mail is to send stuff back and forth between my characters. I am not buying NCoins for the sole purpose of being able to do this. It's a blatant and obvious ripoff.

Plus add the EU problems mainly MARKET PLACE been broken for days now, its totally useless

 

As for the deletion timer post level 15, yes it is the same on other versions BUT they have more character slots, even the Private RU server starts with 4 slots. plus if you want more they are considerably cheaper to purchase in ALL other versions.

Hello there,

Thank you for contacting Blade & Soul Support Team.

This is currently a known issue and the Development Team is working to correct this in a future update.

I'm sorry, but the Game Support Team does not have a workaround at this time. Once a fix has been created and tested it will be made available in a future update.

Please let us know if we can be of any other assistance.

Regards,

Well as NCSoft were the ones to set it that way, of course it's a known issue. What did they think the players wouldn't catch on or something?

I kind of wish there was an account warehouse available so that you could trade currency items between characters. Farming Poh or faction insignias for alts would be nice. We're not asking for an unbelievably large storage, maybe 2 rows so people can transfer certain items between their account.

 

The wardrobe though would be a huge indicator that NC Soft is listening to their community's concerns...

Since you said complain here, here's a list of complaints.

Hi there, I'm the creator and leader of the Jiwan-based clan <Lickable Lolis>. After running this clan for about a week now I've come up with a few things that could be improved upon that would be of extreme help to the functionality of clans in my opinion. As I was unsure where to submit this feedback I'll start here and if there's a better place for me to do this then I'd be more than glad to submit it there as well.

That's actually good feedback and great suggestions. That's what this thread is meant for, so people can discuss topics and be aware that NC Soft is aware of these issues and people can stop making new threads about that particular topic. If you look at the front 3 pages, there's almost nothing but complaints. If I were a new player and looking at the complaints that players had against NC Soft, I'd think twice to even try the game out. Hopefully NC Soft does something, anything about the community's concerns.

I just wanted to say that I really appreciate threads like this and I would love to provide some more information towards the listed points when I have some time.  There is quite a lot of misinformation floating around about the game and it would be nice to clear it up.

If you check my Twitter you will see that I answer dozens of Tweets every day as well as host or co-host the livestream on a weekly basis to try and get information out to the community.  I've been meaning to become more active on the forums but as you can imagine it's quite a lot of work managing the game.

Problem: I don't know of a "balanced" server, but maybe people could enlighten me. I currently play on Poharan and the server is currently heavily dominated by blues. If you aren't a Cerulean, you aren't going to be getting BW's, terrors, etc. There's probably about 4 times the number of blues than there are reds in open world anywhere you go.

On master Hong it's actually pretty balanced, we reds killed Blackwyrm today and it seems like we usually have a good chance vs them, though it does seem they are winning, it doesn't seem like it's immensely imbalanced.

I just wanted to say that I really appreciate threads like this and I would love to provide some more information towards the listed points when I have some time.  There is quite a lot of misinformation floating around about the game and it would be nice to clear it up.

 

Fantastic Thread. -Here is my 2cents/opinions-

 

Firstly we applicate you talking to us as well Babbletr0n, sincerely thanks for your time and effort to communicate amongst the community.

 

So I'm just going ramble stuff off as a point of view or (opinion) on what I think needs fixed or altered for a better experience. I played mmo's for over 10+ years so some of the stuff I state will be valid to a mass crowd.

....

1.Rng items - When we get items from wheel spins or bosses (chests) We should be able to trade other players these weapons for a class weapon in return, rather then only using it to be absorbed or vendor for a few copper / Salvage it. Making trade in the game being used more often and as well help a clan mate or friend out if you have dupes or a specific class item they need and they have yours.

 

2.Transformation Stones - I feel as if these need to be put into the daily quest RNG boxes for the fact if you don't pick up the profession for it you're left with either 1 buying it from the market or 2 getting from survey. Me personally find it hard trying to get a Moon water Transformation stone and would love to be able to acquire one other then using 5gold (estimation) to get one out of several you need for item upgrades.

 

3. Cash shop - I feel as if there needs to be a way to buy items with in game gold or even give us points for being active for so many hours at a time or how many quests we have completed in a play session then we can cash in the points for items in the cash shop. As well as a player that has played mmo's for over 10 years players frown heavily on RNG items from shop the gambling method needs to put a end to. Either sell items as whole or don't sell at all.

 

3.Trade System (PVE) - Alright so I just want to say it's a interesting set up with the bid war etc but I believe there needs to be that + a chance for yourself to get a item for sure without any type of bid because I prefer the Need be for greed loot option where players need / roll dice to see who gets highest number then that shows the winner. Bid war simply just proves that whoever has most money and wants the item gets it. So that's honestly unfair to the rest of the party. ( Would love to see the current system looked into)

 

4.World Player Vs Player - for max level I think we should last longer in fights and also be more competitive like how arenas are. I feel as if we wear the Faction Outfits you could adjust our stats to be equal or somewhat similar to how arena works to make a better experience entirely.

 

5. (PvP Battlegrounds) -  Other then Arenas being the main source to do competitive pvp lets have some battlegrounds with 4 - 8 players on each team that have objectives / kill counts to score points and achieve victory. I know several people would enjoy instanced pvp battles on a map ;)

 

6.Pve changes - I feel as if 80% of the dungeons I enter we are missing players due to loading in lets make it so no one can progress within the instance in till everyone ready's up so no one misses out on quest credits. Lets face it not everyone has top of the line computer hardware to run game yet they're a loyal customer/member of the game as everyone else so they should be able to witness and do all the content within the Instance other then players with buffed Cpu's My solution is simply had a barrier at entrance that everyone has to click (F key) on so show you're ready. Worst case if someone d'cs then the group can decide to kick. - I have a fantastic Cpu and don't have this issues but my clanmates and friends alerted me of this issue some people are having and I wanted to address it so for everyone its a win win situation.

 

7.Storage and Inventory - I understand the reason on why it's so limited but how about giving us a separate soul shard bag and potion/food/key and charm pouches to clear up this issue. It's rather annoying to have to delete/salvage/sell stuff nonstop to continue your way to quest with open inventory space and lets be honest that's not fun right? Mmo's are about having fun lets look into this as well.

 

8.Clan Updates - So lets add more functional clan options for clan masters etc. Lets clear it up and make it more understandable on how to upgrade your clan and even a simple function of when you want to kick a clan mate you want to kick them for a reason not uninvited them- the current word is " Uninvite" Lets change that to "Kick clan mate" Plus lets make it so we can see the last time our clan mates were online to give us a understanding when they were on last! (pvp clan) - also lets make it so there is a way to have territorial control over zones in a PvP aspect every 1 or 2 hours a clan can participate in a area for some World pvp and once they win the event the victorious clans name will be established in that zone as the controller for the remaining time limit. 

 

9. In Game Moderators - I feel in Mmo's there should always be in game mods that watch over and answer to players that needs help or watch over chats so they can fix and or eliminate the issue entirely like (Gold sellers / Ignorant individual causing trouble)

 

10.Game suggestion Box - Make it so people within the game can post opinions on how to better Blade and soul entirely by making Votes so the servers can vote amongst what changes they want to see implemented the most and at the end of every month pick the top rated votes and talk amongst the developers to see what can be done about it for a better experience

 

11. Services Gender Change - I understand this most likely has been discussed befor but I really am at the point where I wish I would have made a male character rather then a female and just wanted to throw this in there since this is something I would most certainly buy Ncoins for. ( Not fun to start a class over from scratch just over gender)

.................

Just wanted to say I will post more ideas and opinions in future on helping throw ideas out for the player base opinions to be heard and throw my 2cents in often. I have much more to say about PvP but I will stop there for today. I will add more information later and keep writing my idea/concepts down. Enjoy!

 

For anyone who disagrees or can think of better solutions then by all means brainstorm with me and lets figure out a perfect system/solution that could very well be implemented one day.

I just wanted to say that I really appreciate threads like this and I would love to provide some more information towards the listed points when I have some time.  There is quite a lot of misinformation floating around about the game and it would be nice to clear it up.

Then would it be possible to pin this topic?

Beside the server issues and the FPS drops - which hopefully are NCsoft's primary focus right now - there are several issues with the way the game is designed that should eventually be addressed. Namely, The utterly imbalanced open world PVP where you can get stun locked forever or ganked and killed instantly without given any time to react. This is especially an issue at lower levels, but persists on all levels of play. It's not enjoyable (for the victim) nor does it require any skill from the perpetrator.

I am sure there will be those who argue that "arena is where you PVP lol nub". However, with the way the game is designed you can't exactly avoid doing faction dailies, which does recurrently lead to the necessity to fight with the opposing faction. If the game forces you to do something, then at the very least make it enjoyable to do. That should be the motto. I can't imagine anyone but the partied up gankers enjoying open world PVP as it is now.

Also, please remove the cheap trick of using the "escape" feature during a fight. I am sure it's not the kind of situation in which the devs designed it to be used. It makes even the incredibly rare fair fights redundant.

I realize it's extremely unlikely the basic tenets of the game will ever be changed. Just wanted to waste time by giving my 20 cents. If you know what I mean. Wink wink, nudge nudge. ;)
