  1. geia sou re patrida..

  2. Και εγώ από Ελλάδα είμαι!

  3. Hows KFM nowadays in PvP?

    I don't think things go well for kfm.kfm with 26k hp and lose from assassin with around 14k in 1v1 in arena.also there are no new videos in youtube and nobody stream kfm.all you see is BM,LBM and a bit of Assassin kfm is good at 1v1,but not that good.bm or lbm are way better,especially bm there are different ways of build.def,parry,focus etci think it depends what bo-pae pieces you equip.from what I know you can find some suggested skill tree builds in Korean official site.i hope you know Korean.i don't think you will find kfm stream or videos,and if you do they will be low lvl.alts probably
  4. Blade master vs Kung fu master vs Destroyer

    don't be so sure that other games never did it.Lineage 2 has 1v1 coliseum matches to become hero for a loooooooooong time(i forgot how many years this game is out).Aion also has 1v1 arena
  5. NCSOFT Confirms Western Development

    its been around 6 months since the announcement and not a word?jeez
  6. no i don't think anyone cares.aion is a good example.sorc is OP glad gets nerfed and sorc becomes more OP with each update so i have to bust my ass to learn and the other can beat me without to little effort.ok
  7. i play gladiator cause its challenging,but not fun when facing OP classes like sorc or chanter.sorc,sm,chanter and cleric are not just broken but OP as hell.pvp cleric crit for 8-9k dmg is not normal dmg.and in 4.0 they will be more OP.cleric with speed incease buff?right.i have never played mmo that healer is hardest to kill and kill you with ease.try to win 1v1 vs a sorc that cc you without an end and 2-shot you or let you suicide with that no OP 1k dmg reflect shield.in aion you need more than 20-25k hp to fight sorc or chanter and thats not guarantee that you can win.templars can't win with their 100% hp heal dp(we're talking for over 13k hp unbuffed).especially in arena.chanter dps the shi_t out of you with those OP perma atk buffs and heal without you notice what happened.i played sorc and chanter in aion and had no hard time in arena.i'm totally newb with sorc with crap pve gear and i have 24-2 in arena.i can kill 55 templar with full coli gear.with chanter they can't even take half my hp.ubber dps and good heal ftw.i want to try sm too but they will cry when i fear them to the death i know how things with underpower classes go.i play aion you know
  8. choke is no broken at all,its balanced.right..i didn't have to play sorc or sm or chanter in Aion to figure out that those classes are broken i didn't know that i can't reply if someone doesn't refer to me personaly.OMFG kfm used to be that way with their counter and they gain more chi cause they use more chi,and they made it that way to compensate the removal of stun.haven't watched any vid recently cause i can't find,but last i saw they gain 4 with counter and use 3 with follow-up in Aion chain/leather doens't matter.what it matters is if its abyss-top pvp- (especially if its max gear),colliseum-pvp- or pve.only colliseum weapon makes huge difference if you fight someone that don't have
  9. i said broken,and don't tell me they aren't.and i don't play the game to beat your guild mate.i kinda don't like playing EU Aion with 140-160 ping(and i live in greece),so i don't want to play korean B&S.i don't want to have same experience like when i was playing K.Aion beta
  10. class is broken and they do nothing.they only knew how to remove ice stance skills for kfm(not nerf them for balance but remove them completely),remove stun from counter etc and for lbm they do nothing.nice balance they do.just like in Aion.they nerf gladiator and give OP dps/cc skills(class has more cc than if you combine all classes together and each update they get 1-2) for sorc that is already OP
  11. Anime recommendations

    Magi Psycho Pass The Unlimited - Hyoubu Kyousuke Ixion Saga DT(too damn funny) Berserk(my favorite anime/manga) Hakuouki Sengoku Basara Brave 10 Blade Of The Immortal
  12. Final Fantasy XIV - Reborn

    found it.thx a lot
  13. Final Fantasy XIV - Reborn

    it only has a link to put the key.i don't see anything else.can you give me a link?
  14. Final Fantasy XIV - Reborn

    is client available for download?if yes where i download it
  15. i prefer to upgrade my PC than buy new gen console.these things will cost w a y more than $500 and game prices will be like buying 2 pc games i play every game with keyboard,aside fighting games that i don't like.its easier to play Kingdom of Amalur,Darksiders 2,ACR/3 with keyboard..i wanted to buy ps4,but,if ps3 cost around €300 and its out for soooooooo loooooong,i don't wanna know how much ps4 or 720 and their games will cost.in 1-2 year after their release that price will be be kinda cheaper maybe i'll buy
