  1. BnS Buddy [Based on BnS-Ark] Fix Loading screens!

    @xEndless 64 bit client doesn't really want to use all cores of my 6600k CPU (Quad Core no Hyperthreading) , I wonder if running the BnS Buddy Use all cores option would actually boost me. (Would it mean that I could get a 100% CPU usage like if I was playing overwatch uncapped? (cuz CPU is the bottleneck in overwatch in that case, and it's the same for BNS atm.) GPU: GTX 1070 CPU: I5 3570k RAM 8GB 2133mhz (planning to add another 8GB soon) p.s. I never used BNS Buddy Before so I am asking.
  2. Blade And Soul is coming to SEA

    This is nice! Some players are gonna be happy for sure.
  3. New Content and 10th Class Reveal Trailer

    OH god, they want to make me play the game again, but this poor fps :-(((((((((
  4. 64-bit client incoming

    DX11 64 bit client of wow does help with performance a good deal. There's always some responsibilities on the develeper to used 64bit well, but in general 64bit has more potential, not juste for memory purposes.
  5. Reasons people quit.

    Oh I see, thanks for the clarification.
  6. Reasons people quit.

    I was not really defending his opinion . It was more of what was happening in my case. I still like to hang on the dojo from time to time because I grew fond of the site. It was not my intention to make it look like another huge rant vs ncsoft.
  7. Reasons people quit.

    I am but I dont want to play a game published this way. Playing wow n path of exile until I can see whats up with Revelation and Bless online.

      Why you want to marry somebody that you hate? I just don't understand :(.

    3. Esuna

      Esuna

      I don't hate her !

      She does hate me, tho.

    4. FinalxxSin

      FinalxxSin

      Esuna, it's ok. I know the truth. Let the hate flow through you.

  12. Moving my BNS talks here

    Moderators aren't paid here! And they do the job nicely :matrix: . Official forums became such an unstoppable machine. I really believe that while we are assaulted by spam sometimes, they get more of it. Also, personal opinion but I don't really like the community of those forums.

  14. Stuff

    It is possible to progress at a crazy rate without paying a cent, but only a few people manage to do it. I know some one in my clan that manages to use 40 characters over 5 accounts to make an insane amount of craft, while also manipulating the market. Outside of Founder packs, he never spent a cent on the game. Yet he has the legendary lvl 2 atm. I personally wouldn't be able to manipulate the market and have so many characters , etc. So I find his accomplishments amazing! (He has the Tycoon title by the way). Myself I am at True Oathbreaker Acessories and Awakened scorpio. Im far from getting true scorpio or acessories. I bought the master pack AND bought 1 month of premium outside of that. So i haven't spent much. I just play a lot. Using my earned gold to participate a bit in every rng events (as much as the restriction on hongmoon coins purchases let me), which rewarded me sometimes (Actually got the Red gem from Trove). Outside of things introduced in RNG events that are not available in other ways (temporarily or not) I am fine with most things they throw at us. However, I do agree with some people in this topic, The stuff is thrown at our face quite fast. I would have loved getting a bit more time to catch up with people that invested more in the game.
  15. Wow My Jellyness is real

    Which clan is it? (Incase its mine /wink) Our design cost something like 2.5k total to craft.
