      It was the reasonable solution because NCsoft loves that Cash Shop.

  1. Hi guys. i will introduce the news of NCJAPAN :) NCJAPAN opened the countdown page of the mystery to the public to integrated portal site "NCSOFT" on February 18 today. 【2015.3.1正式発表】NCSOFTは、あっ!と驚くサービス提供に向けてチャレンジしています http://event2.ncsoft.jp/1.0/nc/challenge Media Source: http://www.4gamer.net/games/001/G000189/20150218095/ In the countdown page, the egg of the mystery appears. It is said, "Peep at the futurity", and something new service seems to appear. the countdown timer is set to become March 1, 2015, and notifies "Something" to be announced formally literally. It is expected that the project related from publishing the title of "Linage", "Linage 2", "The Tower of AION", "Blade&Soul" that NCSOFT manages to the this company service is open to the public. Latest, Blade&Soul Japan large-scale update title "天舞(Tenbu)" is scheduled to be mounted on March 1, 2015. it's same day! Moreover, the promo word of "WTF! Why did it turn out like this?" used in the banner image. It might be an announcement concerning "Free to play" and "Business model" or Other Service? Details are announced on March 1. maybe something might arise. Let's wait paying attention!!! thanks.
  2. Blade & Soul Japan(NCJ) discloses result of the user questionnaire. They are doing while carefully examining the price revision. NCJ seriously catches the questionnaire survey result. It seems to be examining the review of the price about "Price" that Japan user feels that it is a load most now. There seems to be an announcement later about concrete content. Let's wait paying attention. http://www.ncsoft.jp/bns/news/notice/view?bbsNo=5401&articleNo=220

      Warlock movements are very Kpop-ish. They seem like they are about to sing and dance half the time. Lol Wonder if the animators drew inspiration from that.

      That looks similar to the advancement class of the Blade Master I was going to put for a suggestion years ago. A path where the BM chooses to focus more on chi with their weapons.

      Why couldn't they make the sarong separate, for female Gons -_-. It looks like a shower curtain.

      I look at those statue things and all I can think is, mash-up of Mass Effect and TES, semi-alien dwarven automatons in BDO? :o And that dungeon doesn't really feel "alive" I think I'm spoiled, but, there really needs to be more going on here, it seems like kind of just a path from one spot to the next..
