  1. Finally set up everything to play bns n.n

    1. Ghastly

      Ghastly

      Success! I can't wait to join in.

  2. Of course it's not a bit, it's brutally shiload of stuff you need to do, pay and wait to get, YET that's not pay2win. Pay2win comes from the simple fact where you pay to buy things that are impossible to get without paying + outpower those that you get free. Anyway, there's also such thing as feeling of achieving something hard, which makes the game more interesting to play and builds some hype. If it would be just about going through maps, collecting credits per missions and buying all there is with just this method, I'd probably stop playing after like second planet.
  3. I can't get rid of the port forwarding error that comes from upnp, even though I've went to my router settings and enabled everything there. T_T It's just that I can't use friend list with it, other than that it's possible to play. :[
  4. ..

    Yeah, there was that instakill move, but you can block, hit, jump while cought in it. ( With the right timing of course ) It was also very easy to cancell it by pressing jump at the same time you were slashed( exact slash that makes you fall down instead of flying up). And pulling internet cable out? If prtscreen was only available for bad pc's, then everyone could just pull the cable out and gain 10 seconds invincibility+ teleport. But yeah, that's something most didn't know about, or could more or less not fall for, unlike a HORDE of 'people' that just spam butterfly+D key. They simply did it non-stop, even while not fighting anyone. And there were very few options to counter them. (Even though you'd kill the same BF spammer(or K-styler as they called themselv) with a good ping in a hundred million different ways)
  5. ..

    I kinda like the ip blocking thing, as long as they keep every region away from each other. Since, it was probably the most frustrating thing when chinese started raiding EU and NA servers, with their slash and step to the right 250 ping abusage for 24/7 NON STOP. It all just came to the point where they started getting cocky from the fact that they can just leave a lag-damage-trail behind by moving backwards or to the sides. Dx
  6. Yep, you'll have like two days from server opening to make a guild, before everyone starts mass producing them and taking all the names. xD
  7. o.O you sure you get reset scrolls at level 32?I'm so confused now. xD I guess, I'll keep leveling new Arcanist without using the scroll just incase. >_<
  8. T_T I'll need to reroll after all, IGN Riri level 11 so far ._.;
  9. How many reset scroll do we recieve per character? D: Just depends if I'm gonna reroll.
  10. Meh the game lasted for hella long and they've been warned almost two years ahead before closing it. Though, on the other hand I see no problem selling it either, other than prestigue.
  11. Duh, I'd really like to join you guys, but the problem is my friends probably won't transfer, since I've forced them to jump from Ishara to Veritas(Due to population and queues* :P) and then again to Arcadia(Since it had neither of the above). But, since we get to play together so dayum rarely, and I've already skipped all possible dojo online meetings, I'll probably leave it downloading overnight tomorrow. 3: But gotta warn you, I barely find time between college and part-time + other games/lan partys for Tera, which SUCKS. T-T
  12. I wanna try slayer, is it really worth suffering till 20th level, since I find it pretty hard to level so far? D; This topic is about American version and servers. :P
  13. I wanted to ask if that choosen server has query's, since EU version had literally 1000+ on every single server. Until they released 3 new servers. (Perhaps NA will do that aswell)It's pretty fun to play on a new server, since everyone get an equal headstart and it's fun to watch/participate in that leveling race. xD
  14. C9 is very bad compared to BnS, but you can try Tera, it's open world and going F2P in 2 hours. O:
  15. I feel so cheap starting to play tera almost at the same time it's going F2P :>

      Atleast I paid for tera club, which was probably even cheaper thing to do. >:D

      Why not, everyone else is doing it :) Where you playing on?

      I think it was Ishan PvP, didn't get to see the server name more than once, Dx
