  1. I can't always get online and check the forums, so yeah I'm on and off.

  2. Ishmael , where are you

  3. Interesting song, very "techy" if you know what I mean. I don't know anyone from my home country that plays games like I do. And where I live now, i still don't know man people IRL that game like I do.
  4. I'm glad you like this sound, frankly because I don't know many others who do. People would rather tune into House music or Pop music. And yes, I am "Arabian". (Egypt/ United Arab Emirates/ Saudi Arabia) Thing is that term is quite loose now, unless of course you are directly from Saudi Arabia, which I'm not. I was born in Abu Dhabi, UAE and moved to North America. I have Saudi Arabian ancestors great-grand parents though. Since I'm from UAE, my ethnicity is Emirati as my parents are actually emirates. And in case you're wondering, no I'm not a billionaire. Kinda over explained myself there didn't I? Yeah that's a habit I have. Now more music :big_smile: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9rUThnU6XE
  5. My favorite is Drum and Bass, Drumstep is just something I listen to occasionally. The difference between the two is the drum pattern, same tempo but instead of break beat, it's 2/4 like Dubstep. also I enjoyed the mix a little bit, some of the songs were over the top with the effects and bass frequencies which is a sort of a pet peeve for me. As long as it's consistent with a progressive beat I like it. This song starts out Drumstep then into Drum and Bass halfway through the song.
  6. what is your server and name in Dragon Nest SEA , my server is west wood and my name is Rebellion4 .

  7. Let's all get along :big_smile:
  8. Foreign Beggars eh? BTW this is Neurofunk Drum and Bass.
  9. Yeah i don't like the commercial music at all. A lot of the House/Electro has gone absolutely generic and get's shot out every two days but some new guy who finally discovered FL Studios/Reason pirated the Nexus 2 VST and started making random sounds and shipping it as music. and techno, that genre came a long way, its too vibrant for me, idk if that makes sense, well typically Hardstyle and Nightcore, its too colorful, maybe if I'm in a club or rave i'd get into to it. And i agree, Skrillex is garbage. One of the best Drumstep tracks I've ever heard.
  10. I think my signature pretty much clears up what I like listening to. I also forgot some people in it. I also like Ninja Tune, so like Machinedrum, Cold Cut, Bonobo, DJ Kentaro, and Hexstatic to name a few. Also Future Garage / Future Bass like Burial, Detz, Culprate and Volor Flex. About Dubstep since Drum and Bass is fairly similar, I surprisingly don't like it as much. Probably because it's too slow for me. Doesn't mean I won't find myself hearing a track or two, unless its identifiable as Drumstep, like Kill The Noise's remix of Noisia's Diplodocus, Braken and Tristam's Flight, and Shockone's Chaos theory which have Dubstep elements within them. I really only tolerate Dubstep's relaxed sub genre (not like Dubstep isn't already a sub genre right?) which is Chillstep. Side Note: Linkin Park is really good. haven't really touched down on their new stuff lately though.
  11. I wanna see Lyn Destroyer :big_smile:
  12. So after thinking about it, Lyn Blade Master might not actually be the 7th class, but rather a spin-off class, meaning there could be 2 spots left out of the 8 classes. Or TBL might not keep the paradigm of having just 8 classes, they might expand when the game grows. So I sat there and thought, "What would the next class be and if there will be more, what would those be?" Personally I feel any of these choices could fit in the game, but what do you think? Oh yeah Don't even consider including Gunner or Archer classes, cause I'm pretty sure we went over that already. Kinda iffy on the Priest though, most Priests in games have a healing ability and B&S theoretically has no healers.
  13. Found some good DnB mixes, Jump up & Liquid. and some Progressive House mixes Chillstep/Melodic Dubstep mixes None of these have L.A.O.S.. smh
