  1. This "new" update feels like a "downgrade" in everyway I can think of, TBH. Starting with the removal of the status update box. Menus, links, etc now feel scattered and without direction. But maybe that's just me.
  2. I've always wondered why I get 10-20 MS on Wildstar but games like GW2 give me 50-60 MS and B&S 50-120 MS. Planet nexus must be closer than we thought.

      my ping to gw2 was also much lower below 30, but for bns im getting 225ish for some reason. on random note, my bdo ping is flawless below 20. only bns is giving me total shit

      Is for the Dalas 3 conection and cheap servers

  3. There is a huge list of things I could mention but I think the biggest factor for me, personally is the fact that there is no end in sight to the grind for gear mill and I am now used to systems that revolve around learning fights and becoming better, rather than prioritize on gear. I am obviously talking about the GW2 system. Once you have ascended or legendary gear, you're f!cking done with that grind shit and can focus on vanity items like skins or achievements or PVP or raiding or anything else the game has to offer -- without ANY gear grinding distraction. In most Korean MMO, they're still living in the days of WOW, where gear is the #1 priority if you want to experience the rest of the content. FFXIV fell in that sinkhole, too and now TOS is headed that way, too. Dark times I live in and so many of you seem to embrace this shit. Maybe I've just done it too many times and I am sick of it. So to answer your question, the game is NOT hard at all. It's just designed around a system I find outdated and overall a shitty system. To add salt to the wound, the game is also technically poorly designed, to the point most content is best experienced in small groups of 4-6, rather to what an MMO should be (20+).
  4. I doubt NCSOFT would close servers in that time frame. I mean, Lineage II (Launched in 2003) is still a thing and so is the original Guild Wars (Launched in 2005). You should be more concerned with for how long will you hold interest in the grind, than the game's availability, TBH. The grind is what kills and it only kills players.
  5. This. Using FXAA and then applying lumasharpening for instance, which is something very common in SweetFX users, doesn't tax much if at all. If you're using a 1440P resolution monitor or higher, like me, the jagged edges disappear completely with something as simple as that. But in the process, you lose (and gain) details elsewhere. But again, it does look good. Keep up the good work.
  6. Well, a GTX *60 is what I consider average/somewhat at the edge of below average. What I consider standard for gaming would be GTX *70 or AMD equivalent and for above and beyond standard GTX *80 or *90. I used all of the settings you have (I think more if you add AO and a few other things) in GW2 and FFXIV on a GTX 780 and the FPS loss was around 2-5. For B&S I used less flashy effects, because the game is faster paced and these things can distract while you try to dodge or block, etc. But that's my take on that.
  7. It's just reshade. You can get similar results with sweetfx and the performance loss is pretty minimal when using these two tools, unless you're using a GPU from the ice age or you're trying to apply it to a game like Crysis 3 or something. Most of the taxing elements in B&S attack the CPU; not the GPU. So anyone with a decent or average GPU won't notice much if any performance loss.
  8. More content is always good. More grinding is always bad. 'Cause fuck grinding shit. TBH even with this roadmap, I would rather play a vanilla server capped at Lv 45. After the Lv 45 content, I am no longer feeling the game. It's been extremely difficult to log on for more than a few minutes without passing out of boredom.
  9. For those of you out of the loop, this is the developer's blog with the optimization they have done (Being applied tonight with maintenance). If what they have listed is accurate, then performance is going to more than double and even triple in some cases. https://treeofsavior.com/news/?n=438
  10. Thank goodness I grew up with classic games like Resident Evil and Silent Hill and not this shit, Lol. People should play Outlast and Soma instead of these games IMO.

  12. They are the development team and publisher at once for the international version. The korean version has Nexon behind them. But yes, they are very, very small from my understanding. Based on Linkedin, it's actually under 50 employees. https://www.linkedin.com/company/imc-games-co-ltd-
  13. Lol @ NCSOFT actually doing what's needed. But anyway, it appears he is very serious about this... serious enough to have restricted access to new players until the issues are resolved. https://treeofsavior.com/news/?n=428
  14. Consider using an authenticator in the future, if you weren't using one. These are standard to gaming and other online accounts. Good luck with your future gaming.
