  1. Why do male players play as female characters?

    People are just mad they can't hit on random girls cause they might be boys irl lol
  2. Why do male players play as female characters?

    Unless they use some kind of user DNA scan to decide gender, age, body build, people are gonna choose whatever they want. I do remember a game in which you input gender during account creation actually decided what gender you play as and you couldnt change it at character creation.
  3. Why do male players play as female characters?

    Don't forget MMO rule #1 behind every character is a guy unless proven otherwise. Stick to that rule and you'll be fine.
  4. NA 2 Character slots - Very Disppointed

    Except that free to play players want everything for free while paying players want to keep the game actually running.
  5. I really don't get why so many people are stuck up on playing the Lyn blademaster class right away. It was explained that they would be too OP at the start due to lack of crit def in pvp. Just play the regular blademaster and show that you got some skills instead of wanting to kill everyone with only 1 air combo nubs.
  6. BNS Management Community Perception

    While I do have faith in omeed, sherlock and elusive and think they do a great job, I do not trust NCsoft as a company. Who says these great people suddenly get a notice that BnS is scrapped and they get laid off like what happened last time??
  7. I have been wondering what the best way is for Blade&Soul to gain a lot more popularity in a short time. I haven't heard the dev team talking about this, nor have I seen any other recent topic covering this. I came up wit a few ideas which may seem overused but definately still work. 1. STEAM. Like recent MMO's (Tera online) for example gained popularity way faster with their steam release. Being able to get achievements or use steam workshop for doboks might also be an awesome idea "if possible". These would only be clientside changes and may even contain language packs for easy integration. Some very popular twitch streamers also keep track of all new games on steam to play on their streams. (i.e. Lirik). With a few thousand people watching streamers try out this game, it's popularity will skyrocket. 2. Youtubers. While it may be a little hard to contact big youtubers such as Pewdiepie or jacksceptickeye to play your game on a video, the effectiveness is guaranteed. Heck, even old games like Skate 3 have been reiterated thanks to the popularity of Youtubers nowadays. 3. Television. This is going to cost you more cash than the others but will guarantee the "wow look at dat art" for the most amount of people. In europe it could be a bit troublesome cause of all the different lanuages but for NA it is certainly an idea. If other people have great ideas to make this game known to the world please write it down below! SUPER HYPED! (again)
  8. Senior Community Manager - Can Finally Post!

    A good evening Mr. Hulmes, It is a pleasure to finally see some action from you guys around here. I have a few question which I have been brooding on for quite a while. 1. An user named Aari has spoken with one of your members before and promised a small Q&A way back in September. Why did you break this promise? Or was it perhaps not theirs to make to begin with? 2. Why did NCsoft suddenly go quiet about the game back in like 2013, don't they know it had a huge impact on their overall integrity and thrustworthyness? You don't treat your base customers that way. 3. Did you know you live in the same town as #1 youtube legend Pewdiepie? If you manage to contact him in someway and let him play the game it would skyrocket Blade&Soul's popularity. Involving youtubers is generally a great way to advertise a game. Greetings, Supershaser
  9. B&s West Confirmed

    I just saw this announcement on my twitter and I was like "wut wutwutwutwutwutwutwut?" but it seems it was true! We might aswell show our hype by connecting with other BnS fans on their twitch chat! http://www.twitch.tv/bladeandsoul
  10. hey

    i need help in fixing my blade and soul launcher

    if you can add me on skybe to help me i'll be great full

  11. Suddenly Fps Drop And Games Freeze Problem..

    Apparently the only thing you did know is not correct. I run a AMD radeon HD 7970 and I'm able to play BnS with a constant 50-60 fps and even up to 120 fps when vsync is off.
  12. When did this turn into another payment model conversation?
  13. So I finally got my nds emulator to work on ipad but there is no sound nor do I see any option to save..

  14. Just tried my first game of DoTA2 and I do have to confess I like LoL more :P

    1. Garzel

      Garzel

      1 game isn't enough. You need to learn the game. Alot of people I know quit after 2 games because they didn't understand some machanices. I told them keep at it and I would explain what to do and how to play some heros. they have switched now

    2. Sakimitama

      Sakimitama

      LoL vs DOTA is all preference. Not everyone's gonna wanna switch.

  15. I was cleaning up the attic and guess what I found?! My long lost game "Jazz Jack Rabbit" *brings back memories*

    1. Dexia

      Dexia

      wooooooow i miss that game
