Blade & Soul

  1. how is it for Steam Controller ?

    1. Tashigi

      Tashigi

      For RTS, MMO and some FPS games such as SOMA: Great.

      Everything else: Not good. Get a PS4 or XBONE gamepad.

  2. can anyone link me shark costume for cats

  3. update still not here huh

    1. Snowhti

      Snowhti

      soon in few hours.

    2. KitB

      KitB

      most prob typical american time

  4. so kun is Yun now? dayym

    1. Zazaaji

      Zazaaji

      If "now" was since 2 months before beta, then yes. They said it was because "kun" was too close to the racist term "coon", basically.

    2. iiee

      iiee

      It will always be kun in my heart ~

    3. Snowhti

      Snowhti

      "kunt" pretty much. silly translations.

  5. level 50 is the borderline level for endgame content for KR?

    1. iiee

      iiee

      50+20 is cap there is thats what u mean

    2. KingOfAce

      KingOfAce

      i mean content wise

  6. OMG the stamina bar is horrible ,i can run much more greater distance then them

    1. iiee

      iiee

      The stamina bar is sprinting. Your character is already running all the time

    2. CashforCookies

      CashforCookies

      running all the time? its really more of a jog

    3. iiee

      iiee

      its pretty much running o.o the smaller the character the more it looks like it runs, so if u r max gon then maybe jogging lol

  7. Warning to all Australian players

    just dont blame them alone
  8. is it hard to convert UE3 to UE4?

    1. Show previous comments  4 more
    2. iiee

      iiee

      Its a moba, King of Wushu. they ported it from dx11 to dx12, no UE. but im no expert in this kinda stuff..

    3. Zyrelia

      Zyrelia

      Migrating from UE3 to UE4 is very time consuming and costly (in terms of manhours). Some stuff could be directly transferred, but others would have to be completely remade. The chance of that happening is about 0.00000001%

    4. Rhy

      Rhy

      They would have to re-write the entire gamecode to support it.

  9. Hongmoon Level 5 = base level 5 ?

    1. Been

      Been

      Believe it'll be 45+5

  10. Idea to end Gold-Farm Bots

    another way to solve is to end the trade feature like D3
  11. Account locked then permanently banned

    :shakehead: :shakehead: :shakehead: :shakehead:
  12. Account locked then permanently banned

    they so desperately trying to kick botters out they fuk care about us :big_smile:
  13. Vote of no confidence for NCSoft/Dev team so far

    have you try look at other version of BNS? are they infested by bots? what makes you think this version is so special? nah i know "make them try their best to keep it down yadayada"
  14. i think its exile if im not wrong.
