  1. PMs disappearing

    Basically I have zero access to any of the back-end website editing.
  2. Blade And Soul is coming to SEA

    He's still around. He hasn't been able to log into the Dojo since the forum update despite my pleas with Curse...
  3. PMs disappearing

    @fawazalb At this point I would guess that Curse has no desire to help Blade & Soul Dojo at all. I cannot fix it, they have to, and they won't.
  4. Destroyer animation cancel macro?

    I just asked an NCSoft employee directly to confirm. It's not okay to rebind SS to one key. Some of the NCSoft support people just don't know for whatever reason... The rule is this: one key press - one macro key. Ani-cancelling with multiple key presses bound to one macro key is not okay. SS to one macro key is not okay. I mean, this rule is the same for pretty much every legit game in existence. One to one. Therefore, to answer your original question: Yes, people use them. Yes, they are detectable. It's not that NCSoft doesn't recommend it, it's straight up against the rules, and therefore can't be discussed in depth here. It gives you an unfair advantage over other players as you have to do less work for even better accuracy.
  5. PMs disappearing

    We sent a message to Curse when we first heard about this problem and Curse has not responded yet. I poked them again.
  6. Blade & Soul’s first 24-member raid arrives Midnight Skypetal Plains A strange moonlight has fallen upon the Skypetal Plains, acting as a bridge between the Earthen Realm and the Spirit Realm. Otherworldly creatures have crossed over and are wreaking havoc. The mightiest among these creatures is the Sacred Longgui, a giant dragon turtle that has long been considered extinct. Legendary Soul Shields New Legendary Soul Shields and a new costume can be earned through participating in Midnight Skypetal Plains. [Source] View full article
  7. Outfit question!

    I believe the green one was in the cash shop in China for a while. But no other region has ever released it.
  8. Character nameerr

    Use the links from this thread to download a Chinese keyboard:
  9. PM(inbox) doesnt work?O.o

    Seems to only be affecting a few users. I'll throw this up to Curse.
  10. Feedback on forum update

    PM'd you about it.
  11. Feedback on forum update

    Shoutbox is where it's always been, on the right side of the forums (not mainpage). Although it's not really a shoutbox anymore - it's for status updates on your profile. That's why, when you view the replies, it brings you to the poster's profile. Also links are not working in it, and the cutoff is entirely too short. This is something that I can look into later, and perhaps there's a legacy shoutbox mod that I can get. Take a look at Alexia's post for updates on bugs/fixes/etc.
  12. Feedback on forum update

    UPDATE2: The permissions for certain boards appear to have changed. If there's a board or thread you're not able to reply to, please let me know on here or through private messaging. UPDATE: The maintenance has completed. There are some issues that are still being worked on. Some site links aren't working, the mainpage is.. missing.. and some user's avatars are not updating. Please be patient while these issues get ironed out. In the meantime, I want to hear your feedback on our new site. Do you like the colors? The background? Is the information laid out smoothly in an easy-to-read format? Do you have any questions on how to use some of the new features? Do you have any feedback on the boards we have? Please let me know what you think, while keeping in mind that the bugs are being worked on. Furthermore, if you're not a fan of the new theme colors, you can click the "Theme" dropdown at the bottom of any page and select the Default one. Thanks, Urban - Tomorrow (Thursday, 29th), we will undergo maintenance from 11:00am to 1:00pm central time (I think? They didn't give a timezone, lol). The maintenance is expected to last 2 hours only. During the maintenance, the Dojo will not be accessible. This upgrade will not be to the long-awaited Cobalt forum software. It will be an upgrade to our already-existing IPBoard software. It's still a good thing, just not a great thing. Because our forum software was so old, the site's theme had to be recreated for this upgrade. Things may look a little different. To what extent - I'm not sure. I didn't really get any information on what this upgrade will do for us, lol. Please be patient during the maintenance and don't freak out when you see the changes. I'll be discovering the changes at the same time as you. The only heads-up I have is that we might not have the shoutbox anymore, but I can't confirm that. IPBoard may have a mod for it too, I don't know. We'll see. (: Thanks, Urban
  13. Reasons people quit.

    I'd like to remind everyone to stay on topic. The topic being: reasons why people quit. If the reason you quit was because the lack of server for your region, fine, but this is not a thread to debate about the possibility of one.
  14. Reasons people quit.

    I've been in the process of moving so I hadn't logged in in 2 weeks or so. Yesterday I got on, queued up in F8 and got stuck in the party finder for a good 5 minutes. I completely forgot that in Blade & Soul you can't leave F8 until the party is filled or you happen to be the leader. So stupid... After getting a taste of Revelation Online it's clear that B&S is lacking incredibly basic concepts and mechanics that other MMOs have adopted over the past 10 years...
