  1. It's fine, the western version (the one that will obviously come) will save us. Right guys, right? HAHahaahaah h... ha.... ah... Waaah.. waaaaaaaah *sob* *curls up into fetal position* P.S The last time I tried BnS I got an alright ms (can't remember exact numbers). Was even playable without WTFast. And i was playing on the Kr server. I live in Sweden and have fiber 100/100.
  2. Bns To Eu/na?

    There are probably reasons as to why they're closed, mate. If u want to speculate you can do so in threads like "feed omeed". But opening up yet another hypothetical post that will always have the same outcome no matter what, is rather pointless.
  3. Bns To Eu/na?

    Hello there, please read the "read before posting" thread. It has the information that you're looking for. Also, you can always search for threads that are about the topic that you're interested in. Good luck :)
  4. Feed Omeed

    I can only speak for myself but i'm fairly certain after lurking the forum for quiiite some time that a lot of people or rather salty. And understandably so. Lets be frank, ncsoft gave us hope and hyped us up. Then they proceeded to cut that hope in half and pour salt into it's gaping wound and did nothing while we pleaded for mercy(for years). Sorry for being so dramatic but i feel like I'm entitled to at least that much. Anyways, as I previously stated, I can only speak for myself. This is just what I assume. My advice for you when it comes to handling the bns community is to be as upfront, clearcut and as honest as possible. Being vague and sneaky about stuff might trigger the trauma that some people are trying to oppress. If u have no info to give about bns then just don't bother (in my opinion). And finally I'd just like to say that I have nothing against you personally. I'm actually happy that you're here and I'd like to welcome you to the bns community.

    Yep he won't, No b... *ehum* stay classy Kerro, stay classy
  6. WILDSTAR WEDNESDAY: FEBRUARY STATE OF THE GAME

    I'm not upset about Wildstar coming out nor would I be upset if the release date for B&S was set in 2014. I'm upset about them not telling us about it. If its coming out around the 4th quarter then say so. If it's coming out next year then say so instead of giving people false hope. I'd rather just have them tell me "Guys, we're working on it but this isn't coming out in a long time" then them suddenly telling us to hype up and then suddenly go all silent. The whole Wildstar thing upsets me because they're actually doing something right whilst the people behind B&S are just creating confusion and frustration.
  7. WILDSTAR WEDNESDAY: FEBRUARY STATE OF THE GAME

    This Wildstar bull is setting dates? I'm trying to stay calm, I haven't complained (up until now) and I've tried giving NCsoft time but now they're really starting to get on my nerves. And it's not because I want the game to come out quicker or whatever it's just them being douche bags that pisses me off. Don't tell me to "get hyped" and then not even update some news for over 2 months. I've read some of the posts on the facebook page and people aren't happy. All they want is a few simple words. Idk, maybe it's my fault for getting my hopes up when it obviously was a lost cause. I'll just go into hibernation again lol
  8. Wtf, I can already preorder B&S? wut. Didnt know that.

      I believe it's real.

      Many websites, even Amazon and other well known ones, have placeholders such as this. Just like Ryo noted.

      As for "getting" the game, I'll get it... when it's ready for me.

      Mmm.. The price kinda befits a buy to play setting and not a monthly pay method, tho I'd prefer p2p rather than b2p.

      I'd prefer p2p aswell
