An awesome plan you have. Wait a week closing tickets and saying nothing but "we are working on it", say "all details after maintence" and after that "sorry, no solution, wait another week". Like what did you expected if there was no decision at all? Some magic that will fix it in 3 hours? And now you wait that we will just sit and continue to spend, because you know "this is priority and we will do something someday". I'm not sure how dumb you need to be, to continue to buy something from this company after a scam like that. My expectations were low, but holly cow...

over 1 week and not even the slightest solution nor any explaination why there is no solution...

Like we the comunity dont deserver anything to know and just should swallow everything u throw at us.

ITS ENOUGH THOUGH! 

XML EXPLOITS, ROBBERY, NO INFORMATIONS.

Are u for ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ real? What are you guys doing? If u would at least play your own game so u get a clue how things are going in game....maybe u should stop playing hide & seek all day long and actually care and put some push behind the needs of this comunity....

I’m still quite astounded by the lack of professionalism and action from the whole staff team after a week (or should I assume we’ll wait more) of leaving us in the dark in this situation. By removing our legitimately acquired items (outfits and pet pods) and not giving us answers nor solutions but instead replying with empty promises in our tickets aren’t the best ways to get back at us at all.

Instead of manning up and accepting your mistakes (which the previous posts have pointed out already so I won’t enumerate them anymore) and choosing a solution that you get to shoulder most of the burden instead of the community because everything was from your incompetence anyway, you chose to wash your hands clean and sacrifice us, the community. You guys should really re-think your priorities and take better care of the remaining people in this game because our numbers are growing quite thin.

working devs? Cant believe those rumors since...so many bugs still left unattended. Bugs that are bothering players for years. But yeah, bugs that dont bother your company since there is no pay to play involved.

well, improve it so atleast you can play with it. If they shut our servers down for their incompetence, we loose the items regardless. Jusst (as I mentioned before) only have  enough items to upgrade, never additionals. So they cant use their virus (aka malfunctioning script) to remove more items.

Not 100% true. I still know plenty of older players who did the exploit. Have their outfits and all their threads. I'm talking like thousands of threads. Plenty of those players now have the full azure dragon outfit too. It's better to be lucky than good sometimes. And these **** got lucky with the last patch.

So you are saying that some other players talked to the NPC on a specific character -- and on the same character didn't lose any outfits?    From the last update of @Hime, characters that interacted with the Bamboo merchant were presumed to have taken advantage and therefore had all items that the NPC sold, directly (and in some cases indirectly), removed.  Are you sure the specific character that they lost nothing on, also purchased from the Bamboo NPC?  Maybe they had the full azure dragon outfit on another one of their chars that didn't interact with the NPC who transferred the outfit to their 'main' after their main lost it due to NC's 1st attempt at compensation?    That would seem more likely than them being specifically exempted, but not knowing all the details, I'd have no idea.

Stay positive, and remember that we're all just human - the players affected, as well as support that is dealing with this unprecedented situation.

Appreciate the positives, regardless of what they are mixed in with.

What you said could be the case for those who initially made the mistake or took advantage of the good pricing to fill holes in their wardrobe.  

 

However, those who demanded "punishment" were not "simply buying" things that were available from the NCSoft merchant, but wanted to see others suffer for having received any benefits for using the pricing as set by NCSoft (via the NPC).  Those are the "haters" who will never be happy at having or winning such items, but only happy if others DIDN'T get those items.

 

They are "broken" -- in that they won't be happy if they won -- but only if they see others lose and not get the same item.  Their happiness comes only from seeing themselves benefited at the expense of others'  UNhappiness.  It cheapens their happiness to see others receiving the same happiness achieved via some "lesser" cost.

 

The group demanding "justice" (fr. the greek root meaning vengeance) can't be happy by being first, and should never be rewarded with 'exclusive', time-limited prizes because if any of those prizes are later made available to others for some different reason, they'll be unhappy.  A symmetric  [in]justice for them would be loss of all uniq items in the game that others don't have access to because they weren't around or didn't know about the initial offering.  Certainly, having a unique knowledge that something was available ahead of everyone else means they got a benefit that others won't only because they happened to take advantage of information that others didn't have the opportunity to use earlier on.

If you are HM<18 you don't need this dungs. Don't be lazy, play the game actually and you will get all you need. My alt is HM22 lol. Things don't drop from sky in asian mmo "f2p" games, you need to invest time and/or money, thats how it goes.

You are misunderstanding.  If you are less than HM-level-18, they often can't solo higher dungeons.  It's not a matter of laziness that most HM17 and below characters won't be able to solo the highest level content.

 

As for things not dropping from the sky from asian mmo's, that because they arose in a culture and/or age where time was more available.  One of the features (or deficits) of western culture is so often not having enough time.  In US culture, spending hours and hours at getting little or no benefit isn't considered "fun" or even tolerable.  To correctly and successfully port a game to US or western sensibilities and culture, has to be a removal of the the most boring parts and substitute other means for achieving those items/levels that require less work (ex.: swiping).   When kids are younger and have the option to spend more time in a game, that's one thing, but as people grow up -- outside life, work life and family life tend to take much more time than when one is younger and, initially living at home. 

 

If you don't go to a University  but get a good-paying-job coding java apps, you can have more solo time playing mmo's than those who go to University for 4 or more years. 

 

After a graduation and beginning new job, you are still likely to find free time lower for playing mmo's than a next step for many -- starting a family.  How much time can you spend playing that mmo vs. spending time with with a partner and later kids?  As you get older, you don't have time for the hours one might need for an unported asian mmo that expects lots of free time available for farming. 

 

At some point, people want more out of their free time than mindless farming for hours on end.  The game can either adapt to such a culture or not, but at the expense of not being playable for players as they have less free time for hours+hours of farming and realize they'll lose their players to age -- the exact same ones that could be enticed by systems that allow trading money for $$ to stay caught up or to get ahead in a fun game.  Sure, those who have tons of time but not so much cache, might resent those able to make such a tradeoff, but those who have tons of time may not be able to bring in as much money.  There's always a tradeoff.

Hello all,

 

Our plan today was to update you on our next steps in addressing this issue. However, we did not receive confirmation on the dev team's testing of the resolution due to the typhoon disrupting their network.

 

We want to assure you that this issue remains a priority for us to resolve and we hope to share our plan soon. Thank you.


You never had a plan in the first place.
You didn't have a plan when you punished the majority of the playerbase for *your* mistake. Your negligence and lack of communication spans years, not days, and the little that's left of the rapidly dwindling playerbase has little to no good will left for you to bank on.

Maybe you think that people forgot and forgave you for "events" like Hunter's Refuge, that made *only* the most powerful players in any given server unbelievably richer, 
something that you've been half-assedly trying to "fix" for months now, only hurting the rest of the players in the process with stupid "solutions" like nerfing dungeon gold.
At this point nothing short of going on your knees and telling your few remaining customers that you're sorry for how badly you've been treating them, and beg them to give you a chance to do better while telling them the truth about your lack of any intention of fixing the innumerable bugs and issues plaguing the game.

It is illegal to delete items that we have paid for or obtained legally in-game. We have bought outfits at cost: we didn't exploit bugs or use hacks. ncsoft stole from us, we have to file a complaint.

You might not have, I clearly called that a lazy excuse.

 

First we are told they dont work because corona, now they cant work because of a typhoon. We wait for UE4 for 2years already, so...I dont think we get our legitimate fashion back any time, since a pandemic and weather actually are reasons to postpone stuff.

Is it? The only proof of obtaining it lies by NC. And even they wouldnt aknowledge their wrongdoings. Sadly.

I have said it before, @Hime The only real fix to this major issue would really be to place treads in the F10 for 0. Then turn back on that exploit but only for 1 day.  This way everyone that lost there items that they paid for with RL money {Thank you paypal/youtube for keeping record} to get them back.  Mind that you should only turn it on for 1 day so that people can not over stack on items and if need be to place a limit of 100 {keeping in mind its still RNG for them outifts} so it wont go too nuts.
