  1. Pvp it gets better

    it doesn't have to be OP like Destroyer to say it's OP actually, FM and all the other classes will hate me at 50 patch cause i will play Warlock. but i agree with you. non Warlock players will hate FM
  2. What actually makes summoner strong?

    just because Destroyer is OP, it doesn't negate that Summoner is OP and easy mode. KFM is not OP and hard to learn. dafuq happened here? the easy class is OP and the hard class is not as strong. very nice. classes are unbalanced and it's not only Destroyer. people are new and don't know how to play. when more people learn how to play, the OP classes will be revealed
  3. Pvp it gets better

    so it's gonna be more OP than it is now. got it. and spare me about "classes are balanced bla bla bla". it doesn't work on me, and in 3.0 the gap of power will grow even bigger for some classes. can't wait for OP Warlock to come in 50lvl patch. it will be fun watching people that play OP classes say "Warlock OP nerf"
  4. fps problem gtx 970 / i5 3570k

    just like Tera, the optimization of the game is ubber shit unfortunately. most likely the fps drop is cause your cpu load. i have i5 3570k(4.2ghz oc), and my cpu load from 6% goes to 55+% in crowded areas(only game is running, and most processes are turned off with booster), and my fps from 60 drop to 30-40. i think with i7 cpu game won't have issue with cpu load and fps drop
  5. Blurry terrain graphics help plz

    mine is even worse(same graphic setting as yours) http://imgur.com/IKjFFVg
  6. Low resolution textures on max setting

    i have amd gpu. i went to Global Settings and changed TFQ to all 3 options(1 at a time ofc), i created B&S profile and did the same, but it didn't solved it from what i see, there is something on my screen, but i don't know how to call it or what it is, but there is something there. for example http://i242.photobucket.com/albums/ff127/Gioris/Screenshot_160122_002%20-%20Copy_zpsr4wpzemc.jpg textures above the line are blurry, and bellow line are ok. when i turn the camera a bit http://i242.photobucket.com/albums/ff127/Gioris/Screenshot_160122_003%20-%20Copy_zpsgsyzshep.jpg the part that was blurry it cleared. http://i242.photobucket.com/albums/ff127/Gioris/Screenshot_160122_007_zpswqwazifw.jpg if you look the crest at the floor i'm sure you can see the difference
  7. Geez, nerf summoner allready

    wait till we get 3.0 skill update that Force Master gets big buff. can't wait for Warlock to rape the fuck of OP classes like Summoner, Destroyer and Force Master. plus now that Assassin got nerfed after 4 years of OPness, i'm beat them senseless. it will be super fun watch them bitching "Warlock OP. nerf", but forgot that they were OP for 4 years since Korean beta in 2011
  8. Types of PVP

    yes, only these 2
  9. Pvp it gets better

    *sees 17/1, *sees playing FM. no wonder. Jaesung playing FM is like " *chill as fuck... fuck it, imma win anyway" *easy win. Jaesung playing KFM "grrr, ahhhhh, different weird faces" *manages to win
  10. KFM ?

    you said "fuck that class" and bunch of other things in your initial post. this doens't look like "i wanted pointers" at all. to me it looks like you're saying that KFM is better than FM. if it's not like this, better edit your post
  11. i know that B&S graphics are not the best out there, but textures like trees, grass, faces, outfits, hair, etc etc, are very low resolution even on max settings. textures like hair, faces, outfits etc don't change no matter which setting i use. the only difference in these textures is weapons on textures 1 to 2 option. from 2 till 5 option, weapon textures don't change either graphic settings i use in game + in game screenshot: http://i242.photobucket.com/albums/ff127/Gioris/Screenshot_160125_005_zpssa0willq.jpg another in game screenshot: http://i242.photobucket.com/albums/ff127/Gioris/Screenshot_160119_004_zps057h2nqi.jpg character of a friend: http://s242.photobucket.com/user/Gioris/media/12604772_1289121831104123_3772858670076127139_o_zps8tbhfl6x.jpg.html my character with same hair and outfit: http://s242.photobucket.com/user/Gioris/media/Screenshot_160120_000_zpshfsseu5u.jpg.html i have posted it on BnS official forum too, but no reply
  12. What's with the lag on EU?

    i live in Greece Aion EU: 90+ ms B&S EU: 270+ ms B&S TW: 280+ ms you're right. it's working as intended
  13. BD escape from phantom grip, seize, supressed, plus do dmg: 9ec cd, KFM same skill minus supressed and no dmg: 1min cd. dat balance is amazing
  14. Gunner 2016?

    the archer NPC's are way more interesting than the gunner ones. the spear wielding ones are also awesome. i'm between these 2
  15. aren't we getting 3.0 skill update? rest classes got buffed way more than KFM in that update. BD got 5 new skills Assassin are OP and high tier, so it's natural to loose even if they're lower lvl than you. this game isn't only about knowing your class. classes are divided in tiers, and some are stronger than others. like League of Legends, DOTA, etc. even if you're skilled with a mid tier class like KFM, if you meet a skilled player that play an OP class(Assassin, Warlock, FM, BD), your chances to win are very slim
