  1. Don't care who it is, or how long they've played: Let's see someone do that with a BM right now at the 45 cap with no losses all the way to platinum.
  2. critical and timely? More like an hour long rambling of someone making the same point 15 different times in an unclear fashion. 0/10
  3. I think we all just got clickbaited. I wonder if the OP works for Distractify.com
  4. http://www.twitch.tv/lsjjws3/v/48435577 Oh look, a WORLD CHAMPION is losing to every summoner (except 1) that he faces while playing a blade master. Surely those summoners are just outplaying the shit out of this world champion, right? Get the fuck out of here. Scummoner is a trashy class that anyone with downs can do well with, even by accident. It deserves all of the hate it gets in arena. Here's his "advice" at this timestamp: http://www.twitch.tv/lsjjws3/v/48435577?t=2h20m30s
  5. Oh. You mean like how he hinted here at how easy it is, where he just gets up afk and goes to have a smoke, because it's literally impossible for a sin to beat a summoner that isn't brain dead? Is this the same Jae you're talking about?
  6. They hyped up hongmoon coins so much as part of their proof that it isn't a cash-grab game, then ended up making them extremely rare. Surprise surprise.
  7. I think you need to do story quest until you cant anymore, then then give you a quests to do the big 4 dungeons to attune first. should be fine after that.
  8. Good, one less shitter to deal with in /faction chat.
  9. Bold = darker, heavier, higher contrast. Has nothing to do with size. The point he was trying to make is that it's very visually distracting when you have something that stands out so well (your sig), that it ends up competing for (and winning) the reader's attention. This isn't his fault, that's just how the human eye works. It's naturally drawn to big things of bright colors and high contrast. Also, your brain will naturally keep glancing over at whatever it thinks looks like a face... or boobs. That's just how we work as a species. Your signature has all of the above, making it very difficult to focus on your message. You're not the only person who does this, though, so don't worry. It's not expected that everyone who creates a forum profile go through color theory classes beforehand. As an experiment, as you read through my message, you may or may not be aware but your brain will keep wanting to glance over at my avatar picture. It's a bright white picture on a dark background with a human-like face. You can't help it, and even something as small as that will end up acting as a minor eye-sore. As far as your idea goes, there have already been multiple calls for more options for founders packs. As much as we all may like to see more options, they're simply not going to happen. Here's why: 1) Beta tests were the time to test out if they were working properly. There will be no more beta tests between now and release. 2) Creating a new founders pack sounds easy to the customer, but there's a lot of back-end stuff that has to go on to get it right. It takes weeks of testing, and then also making sure the payment models in all countries across all payment methods also works for these internal kits that need to be created. 3) They've gone with the classic sales strategy of having 3 items for sale. Almost everyone does this because it's so effective. You price the best value-per-item-old bundle as the most expensive. This is where you can make a lot of money by forcing people to spend a lot of cash to get the most bang for their buck. The lowest option is usually highly undervalued-per-item. The middle option is priced "OK"-value-per-item, making the highest tier item look like a "bargain", and the lowest tier item look worthless. Introducing a fourth option would screw this whole system up. TLDR: There's no way they are going to do this at this point, and your sig is very distracting and can take away from peoples ability to focus on the message you are trying to communicate because science.
  10. The new voice is 1000x better. Great job, NCWest.
  11. Here you go, guys. Here's my google drive folder with my favorite, homemade creations in them: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/0B5ycgJFW8fHSVTJwZTdaYUtSclU Please credit me if you're going to use/share them is all I ask. I spent somewhere around 300 hours collectively over the past several years on these. Variations are also available upon request. Album: http://imgur.com/a/BaxQy
