  1. But uh, so do I get weapons from the NPC along the way to use just like the China's one ?
  2. By the way, is the TH server still using the weapon feeding system ? I don't think they are right because we are not given any hong mun weapon.
  3. Yeah, that's one way to see. I see. I haven't been playing for quite long ever since I left China's BnS a year ago, gotta get my jam back. I should be able to get the lowest ping possible from TH since malaysia is the closest country to TH. I get about 30-40 in China using VPN.
  4. Ahh I thought you meant the computer region. Ok now I see blade and soul, is there a way to find out how much my ping is to the game ? And which server do all english players are at ?
  5. Oh wait, you mean I have to change my system locale language to Thailand too ?
  6. Hmm don't think that's the case, I live in Malaysia, which is definitely under the SEA Region. Weird
  7. Yeah I still don't see it after restarting my computer. I'm sure I changed the region to Thailand, and my system locale is still US.
  8. Yeah I still see no blade and soul at all, I see LoL, etc. I'll restart my pc and try.
  9. Weird, I still don't see it, if it appears it does appear on the left side along with the other games right ? I still don't see it after restarting garena. I'm sure i've changed the region though, not the system locale language right ?
  10. Ok I have changed my Country or Region to Thailand, do I need to restart my pc ? Because it did not say anything about restarting.
  11. Joined, waiting for pending. By the way, I couldn't see BnS on Garena+, is there anything I should be doing?
  12. Hello people. : Old player here since China's CBT. Just stumble across this thread and realised it's OBT for TH server. I live in Malaysia so my ping shouldn't be a problem, any english speaking players / SEA players playing in this server as well ? Do hit me up, still downloading the game at this point.
  13. I see, good to know. Well, I would definitely give it another go if I can pass through this error while patching, I always get stuck at 13% and then an error launching installer pop out, any way to solve it ? Anyhow, I would need some help in equipment if I ever do play again.
  14. I see, thanks for the reply, don't bother, because I actually get this error launching installer while updating the game through TGP Booster. Anyway which country do you mean by TH? Yeah sure I'll wait and see, no harm anyway. I was from 电信一区 all along.
  15. Greetings to all existing old and new players of BnS China. I'm an old player that used to play since China got it's beta started, then left after quite many years due to boredom. I have a simple question, which is, is it still worth coming back to BnS China right now ? How's the PvP scene ? How's the quest scene as well as the weapon / item scene ? As for ping, I get mostly 40-50 at average days. So ping won't be an issue for me. Please do give me some feedback as it will help me in contributing my decision to come back once again. And do let me know what server is more populated and what server do you play on, because if I do come back, I'll be starting from scratch and won't have any friends, well, at least friends that exist in the old times are most likely to be all gone. Thank you ! :)
