  1. Blade & Soul Dojo Is Shutting Down This Year

    Shame really but then again it couldn't be helped. Initiating the beginning of the end may bring forth the conclusion of a new consecration. Alas.
  2. The Cancer That Scamsoft Really Is

    Im fine with the new look though.
  3. The Cancer That Scamsoft Really Is

    I wonder why that might be the case...
  4. The Cancer That Scamsoft Really Is

    I'm sorry for the inconvenience. Not quite sure what you mean there.
  5. The Cancer That Scamsoft Really Is

    They artificially push rates down when it's convenient for them but refuse to do anything to let it recover by itself. Next, they also wash their hands like Pontius Pilates when they are clearly responsible, yet arbitrarily intervene with the value of gold to hcoins doing the opposite of what they claim; in leaving it up to the playerbase. Oftentimes make stupid honeybag events prompting highly smart and intellectual mammal dolphins and whales alike to purchase such chests or troves via hcoins & ncoins causing further inflation. As a humble turtle i can see the end of the waterfall and believe me it isn't your usual Disney-style merry go happy fall. I could go on & on but it would do no justice to exposing the underhandedness of our adorable Censorsoft. Back in the early months when new outfits came out, it was understandable that CE was fluctuating just a little but this is just beyond lowkey of them to go this far, silencing those that point their wrongdoings out and keeping a blind eye on the situation asa whole. The seemingly "fixed" rates of 1:6 max would be nice and all but then again yet another event ruined it just when the economy was about to recover and we're back to 1:3 within EU. At thimes like this i honestly wish i rolled in NA since the servers are hosted from the states anyway but that's a completely different discussion. Nevertheless their rates are somewhat better, ever so slightly.
  6. The Cancer That Scamsoft Really Is

    Lol sorry to hear dat. We are in the same boat it seems. I also refuse to click the acknowledge button when i clearly didn't do anything wrong. Good that Dojo exists. If it werent for this site i'd have given up on being a part of the community even though i keep my posting to a minimal degree. Not being able to speak up or share ideas would be a disaster.
  7. POH perfect build

    In dire need of a perfect Poharan build. I have searched across every corner of the interweb to no avail. The closest find i could obtain was Arcteren's preset. However he has not provided a way to share the actual file, and his tutorial vidéó is hard to follow, let alone feasible as seen from the first link below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tp88Qm2nbjY One may say, i could just roll with Rendermax's overused Poharan preset, but shes nothing like the original NPC, not even close to her especially visage-wise. It is clear as crystal what i mean by that from the second link further beneath. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFVTfuaYuRY I'd be ever so thankful to the kind person willing to post a 99% accurate Poharan preset img file here in this thread.
  8. List Of Accelerators/boosters

    play bns eu/na dummy
  9. The Cancer That Scamsoft Really Is

    At this rate most players will mass exodus to Roblox. At least that game has less cancerous management. Unironically speaking so yeah lol.
  10. The Cancer That Scamsoft Really Is

    now that's strategy.
  11. The Cancer That Scamsoft Really Is

    now that is strategy
  12. Today I've opened a topic on Bladeandsoul official forums, half trolling, half serious wherein I expressed my dissatisfaction on the state of currency exchange. Good that i screenshotted the original post of my thread. It got a handful of replies good or bad, in a matter of hours, however after I took a nap the very next thing that welcomed was Ncstaff's one-sided removal of my thread from the forums along with a 24h ban and a threat to get rid of me lel. Well bring it on. This time I really mean leaving BnS for good lmao. Do tell me though where the offensive language was in my OP. I don't see anything wrong with the word cancer. After all it is the context that matters but it seems their staff were asshurt and didn't appreciate satire. Nevertheless this case portrays quite well the management's arbitrarity and restriction on freedom of speech. Remember people, these are the people that manage your game and community. PS; what's the deal with the window within the window on the pink box's sub-sections?
  13. Ninja Looting. Isit Ok?

    thats why i dont do open-word pvp. tag tournaments are difficult in themselves already, no need for hordes of ppl mass murdering each other XD
  14. Ninja Looting. Isit Ok?

    been wondering, whether its alright to set looting to master within the last few seconds of killing a boss? ive read many forums of ppl bitching about this problem but ive been a victim of ninja looters myself a number of times and i do understand where they are coming from. based on GMs response its not against their TOS so if and only if we have no shame why not use it every now and then, greed isnt such a deadly sin, theres also lust etc. what do you think?
