  1. About Dojo? I knew this already since we have seen Curse's behaviour in the past how they deal with this sort of forums. Main reason my little brother wanted to keep this forum away from Curse, but the guy in charge didn't want to listen to suggestions and sold it to Curse. I believe the term used back then was 'partnership with' ... You are still posting on official forums though.... I left it long ago, too many retards and hypocrites, including NC staff behaviour. So NCsoft really is promoting BnS with that sort of ad? I never seen ads since I got it all blocked. If they did count 1 million users i guess we got way more bots ingame than we could ever imagine. Wouldn't be surprised since I see a lot RMT going on in this game and hardly anyone gets banned for it.

      @ZDestiny 55K gold lmao.  I'll never see that much gold.  Can you like adopt me please.

      @FinalxxSin Among friends ingame I am also known as a tax collector. It's almost like the server paying up taxes to me every week. I play less and less because I was bored 1 year ago and now I started my new job career. Even then the gold income i get for doing only daily chal and some regular quick gold farm methods I got. I am not getting that much less that the game becomes too hard.

       

      And it helps if you got a good friend like me with prem who can sell all your items. Since I won't buy premium I will not be able to sell most items myself. At 1 point he had over 10k gold on him from me. :D

      I just made the good calls everytime so i had a (near) monopoly on at least 20 items on market.

      Right now It's lowered down to 5-10 amount of items, but that won't matter since I have an alt stored with goods for more posibilities in the future.

       

      Main problem of gold income is that people are blind to the fact that 'higher' gold value per item > low value per item. While Quality > Quantity is usually thing. i would say that counts as in real life products and human brain development. ingame pixel items however.. Quantity (low value items) beats quality items (high value items) easily.

       

      But hey, like I said community tunnel vision a lot because some random guy posted value of other region markets of x item that CAN give you a lot gold IF it drops. But meanwhile I get 5x more gold before you even saw 1 drop.

       

      Tunnel vision is also visible on 6v6. EU community (I bet NA is the same) putting BS excuses for sucking and not want to learn to play. The majority of the whale geared players on BnS West, doesn't know how to play, so you don't need that gear if you can outsmart them.

    Hope you read, You should copy and save the thread and stuff if you want. i won't keep a backup, so when BnSDojo is taken down permanently it will be gone.
  3. Long ago somewhere in 2009, my dear little brother engaged into this little project to create a Blade and Soul fan site with ReVast. (to be the first and the best fansite not long after the first trailer) Long story short, the first version of the site was awesome. Tiny bits of details (perfection) and nice working forum at the time. When shit happens like that guy grabbing a knife and backstab my dear little brother was also the period, the site got sold to Curse Inc. The fun part of that was we all knew the deathsentence was signed that day. Just didn't know when till now. I doubt anyone is still around that actually been at dojo since 2009. I was in the background. Nothing to important just wanted to write shit. I guess i'll stick around till I'm deleted of this forum. ps. NCsoft sucks.
  4. Account locked for no reason

    If you want to find out the reason behind the account lock, you will have to contact them via their support. Only thing we can do is guess, suspicious activtiy can mean a lot. To name a few example's: 1. the account got hijacked. 2. 3rd party program was detected as cheat tool. 3. botting 4. gold trading (illegal way)
  5. Can my computer run Blade & Soul?

    What do you mean with having 40-50fps usually? Solo play? 6 man dg? If you can achieve that fps with that system (laptop) it's quite good. The CPU you have isn't really strong enough to run BnS properly and BnS requires a CPU with good single core performance. You could run dgs with low fps, but you won't be able to play smooth on raids. Game Debate and many other sites that gives a report based on your input specs. It will show you the results based on the minimum/recommended system requirement from that specific game. In this case BnS.. well to tell you my opinion. NCsoft's system requirement is very incorrect, because it's outdated for years. Because of that very reason any 'can I run it' results will be incorrect. NCsoft won't be able to update the requirements to run the game properly because they know jack about their own game. You can try ask on tech support if you want a good laugh. Couple friends of mine did and i laughed good when i read the replies they got back.
  6. [West] Dark Origins - August 16, 2017

    Ye, tons of f2p casuals feel the rush being too much. For the better part you do get to benefit from future reduction on costs, or easier methods to obtain items. As a f2p/casual myself I can keep up because i generate gold equal to 5 players (That's why maths is important kids). While not playing much for almost 1 year, i still logged in to clear just the daily challenge and craft for gold. Tbh I am bored of BnS for a long time. Reason is that I find the game very monotone, lack of real challenge. This update doesn't really add much for me since I don't have time for raids that often as well it's just the same as any other dg/raid. I will try out gunner when it release, maybe i will just casual play that a bit. Definitely won't spend much time on bns anymore.
  7. Blade And Soul is coming to SEA

    Garena will be running BnS Thaland and Vietnam. If you mean only for Thailand as in bloicked out other regions. No idea, but to be honest there is always a way to get access. Just the language barrier might be the issue.
  8. The Cancer That Scamsoft Really Is

    @Lemonana I don't think it would have matter which tone OP used. He would have got a hard ignore on this issue anyway. Since he did use a let's say not so amused tone towards NC he got both the forum ban and ignored. About the issue itself. it's the undercutting that triggers the currency value to get buggy. Causing min-max input for the gold - hmc value to get locked in below minimum. NC was already aware of this 'bug' (its a bug in their coding), but they didn't want to do anything with it. Only till recently they intervene by setting the value back to 'normal'. This could have been addressed months before that, but NC's choice is to ignore and stall. If they do fix things it's almost like they only do it as 'damage control'. Like what happen recently with their several fuck ups in a row. -- Oh and seems there is a wave of players quitting the game again. Wonder how long NC realise that they fucked up BnS West... and when they gonna own up to it and start fixing things with logical decisions. They should start with a purge in their management, because someone in their management is clearly fcking up. No idea if its inexperience or just stupidity. I worked over 10 years in the management/economics sector incl gaming industry.. from those 10 years I only made 1 mistake which was during my internship (I was still new at this). Any mistake that could happen in one of the companies I worked for (international company) could easily cost them millions of income. (trust me you get fired right away if you fck up a millions of dollar worth contract/product)
  9. Is it late for a come back ?!

    If you have a character that can do some basic daily dungeons. (for example clear daily challenge) You are good to go as in small time investment to prepare material for Gunner. Only if you are sure that you actually want to main that class. You should count at least 2-3 months from now that we might get a Gunner release on West servers. So there is a gap that you can play casually so you don't burn out. So you have those couple months to farm materials like moonstone/soulstone (crystal), Elysian orb/crystal (old name was Honorary Ornament). Also black feather (for ez soul) and the retrieved book. I wouldn't bother too much on leveling up after you reach let's say hm10. Rushing level up was pointless on BnS which the majority somehow didn't manage understand. Play at your own pace and not by the standard set by the retarded people in this community. Otherwise you will get frustrated and quit. :)

  11. The Cancer That Scamsoft Really Is

    I had several posts editted by their mods, also received 1 day ban from forum. Only thing I did was 'correct' someone's false statement. (was a personal attack at me) Mods defend that guy (cuz he is a big spender) by banning me from the forum. They could perm ban me from their forum for all I care, as well I can't even log into the site in a normal way. I am still blocked by their retarded system. Also It's not like their low quality website (designed by NC's finest webdesigners) and massive amount of hypocrites gonna be missed.
  12. The Cancer That Scamsoft Really Is

    If you still can, i'd advise you to do a chargeback. I don't know what payment option you used and in what timeframe. I know a handful of (whales) players that left the game 1 year ago with a successful chargeback. If you are going to quit anyway might as well do it and delete ur char/get them blocked w/e.
  13. Game wont fully load?

    Xigncode3 is what causes this. At least this didn't happen often with gameGuard + 64bit. I get this kinda everytime now. Xigncode3 causes a conflict on my system, gpu/cpu spikes randomly when it's stuck on loading screen. You should try on official forum to get this solved: https://forums.bladeandsoul.com/topic/229464-xigncode3-issue-request-thread/
