  1. What a Shame

    OK, one of these is a sorc vs sorc, so I don't understand the point in this thread since it's really discussing sorc as being viable in comparison to other classes - however what specifically did you want to point out in the second one with the sorc vs the sin? In addition these are 7.2 - I don't know all of the skill changes that we should get in 7.2, just no magic defense increase on CC for sorcs. It would be especially helpful if anyone knows what the skill changes are (or I guess it's back to Powerbook).....
  2. Access Restriction Notice?

    Can we please get this fixed. Seriously - do you want to have your support desk flooded with calls over this? I don't think so, and it could easily happen if people panic over this. So far it took multiple attempts - not only logging into the web page first , but also switching to another character before selecting the one I wanted. In all it took me THREE tries to login to the character I wanted.
  3. Aethertech Nerf - Not announced?

    The short answer to your question is "yes" other classes at least one other class had a nerf to PVE damage. However in the case of ATs it could be argued that it wasn't a surprise that it would be toned down.
  4. Gameplay suggestions

    There are games that have successfully legitimized bots. There's at least one MMO that had an excellent crafting system - it was similar to our aether forging, but used a type of bot. Once you had the mats, you could start automated tasks at any time., only limited by the crafts that you knew and the number of your crafting assistants. You could be doing whatever you wanted in the meantime. You could even log out. Once your crafting was done, you got a notification for each completed task. It really made crafting a lot easier.
  5. Aion: Mark of the Vandal update livestream

    Some nerves are normal, no matter how often you present. If you don't livestream often that's understandable too. However, it takes nerves of steel to fake it when you live demo a product when you really don't know it, trust me . I've had to do it and I don't recommend it. Far better to bring in someone else to demo for you if you are not that familiar with your product, or have them record a test session and play back part of it during the live stream., and speak over it That would be fine too. At least we would see mobs and a real boss in action, or some PVP.
  6. Aion: Mark of the Vandal update livestream

    yes how *uncouth* of them lmao.. Does anyone remember when we had an inter-faction PVP tournament and a GM actually banished a player out into a far corner of the abyss because they broke a rule or were sassy? I miss those days.
  7. Aion: Mark of the Vandal update livestream

    Nor is it *uncouth* to expect whomever is demoing a patch to actually be speak to change that affect core game mechanics, class balances, instances, etc in addition to cosmetics. Not to mention presenting it in a way that would actually be realistic and doesn't crutch upon using GM-mode . That would also help reduce those remarks. Would probably help if they played the patch themselves a bit more of course.
  8. Cyan

    Oh my, you really expect to get a demo from someone who might actually have played the game as a player (i.e. in non GM "God" mode) and could provide a useful preview? More than someone standing on one spot twirling in their new skin?
  9. Weekly Server Maintenance - August 7, 2019

    This event is so poorly executed,rather than motivating your player base it has ended up as a sad joke.
  10. Aion 2019

    Agreed - get your transform although mm..can't speak for a gunner..but depends upon your class. Even an ancient doesn't really do the job for some classes, the game doesn't get to the enjoyable stage until you've got a decent legendary. That's even using the best title. It's even more important given that getting a permanent mount is harder than it used to be. No one has mentioned it yet but kinah is a big issue for new players. Don't waste it early - don't enchant things, ask if you aren't sure. You will need it at 80. You can easily use a fortune trying to socket one item.
  11. Quiting game

    I still have fond memories of Abyssal Splinter in its original form, when we ran in in alliances and had to jump down and glide to collect AP relics. Falling meant going alll the way back to the beginning. I was known as being quite reliable in my static, and was actually one of the better people for opening chests- but when I did miss then anyone on Discord heard some fairly dramatic screaming lol.

    Thank you again for such a helpful post!! amazing job
  14. Luna Crafting Feedback Thread

    Agreed- that a very high amount for the ancient. Especially disappointing considering nothing was done for transform contracts in the GS shop
  15. Weekly Server Maintenance - June 5, 2019

    Considering you really provide only one update a week- how about some additional information on: - major concerns we're waiting on? example- Gold Sand Shop update ? - updates on bug fixes? - upcoming event schedule - upcoming patch schedule Just a few things that come to mind if we want to keep this game healthy.
  16. Whose ideas are these stupid GP base quests?

    Yes . Because they would buy their ranks. No need for that. And (speaking for DN) having asmo transforms for a day, or even a few days or even a wee k is fine. A lot of them waste their transforms, and the longer they hold the fort, the better the buff for the Elyos, so the fort will flip, and the Elyos get their own transforms (which most of them, in turn, will end up wasting).
  17. About the "compensation"

    I was quite happy with the compensation, especially once I found out how to open the bundles a bit faster. Ancient level stones are extremely easy to get. Ultimate are not. If someone can't use ultimate right away, they will need them at some point, at which time they will be happy to have them. Mind you, to keep people happy, I'm looking forwards to a response soon to our requests for GP compensation in the Gold Sand shop, now that the bug above has has been fixed.
  18. Entitled players?

    Your math is simple. TOO simple. Just based upon my own observations, I can site a number of people who haven't received the number of contracts you claim we "should" receive i.e the 294. Just based upon my owen experience, I frequently run instances and not seen a contract. I typically get white contracts and almost never get green-. - and that happens to numerous people that I know. It gives the impression that you may be calling everyone else lazy because you paid what what could well have been a significant amount of money for your transformation. At this point in the patch, it should be common for a large number of people to have a legendary transform by consistently running instances and combining contracts. They should thus be able to get one fairly easily through the event- this was the approach taken in other regions. Other regions also are more generous with their event frequency and the player base doesn't seem to suffer for it- quite the contrary- it's healthier than NA.
  19. Good Job Ncsoft

    A afir number of the people who post here have asked for fair prices, not free items, since there's still a number of people who have either paid subscription for years and/or pay Prestige. They also buy off the BCM. So stating that everyone expects a free handout isn't accurate. Somehow, EU and other regions have managed to run events that give out legendary transforms without the need for such effort. Don't forget, this is no longer a new patch. If people have consistently run instances and combined contracts and even bought them, it isn't unrealistic to expect that an event gives a reasonable way to get legendary transforms without the need to spend over $100 (US) dollars and run an instance every single day (at least) for a month at the highest grade multiple times.
  20. Compensation, how are you doing it?

    The question isn't "when" it's "what" - as in what will be rewarded , and to whom.
  21. Compensation, how are you doing it?

    A number of people decided not to waste their time, I can understand their logic. If NCSoft wanted to grant them some minimal compensation, I'm fine with that- but then go through the extra step of evaluating whether someone actually did instances and sieged and grant them extra compensation. They shouldn't be put on an equal footing with people who put in no effort.
  22. Weekly Server Maintenance - May 1, 2019

    They were lazy and greedy or maybe they didn't get the resources the needed, who knows.. They likely didn't have the developers , or maybe they rushed them, or they lacked some time to do analysis, and/or the QA and did a half--assed job, which is very risky in any complex system with live data.
  23. Weekly Server Maintenance - May 1, 2019

    Bless you. This is the best post I've seen this they screwed the pooch on this patch.
  24. Why do this now when we don't have any answers yet? Why not delay this until there is something worth buying in the shop- like every other region did. In fact, they added special (temporary) items recognizing that this hard reset deserved some compensation. You haven't even returned with a response confirming you CAN do it (which should be a "yes" considering every other region can) nor a date in which you can make the change in the shop- which should be a reasonable time frame (read no more than a few weeks at most). I'm fine (happy even) that these instances award will reward GP but please confirm that luna resets will be removed as of this maintenance.
  25. Glory Points Reset & Seasons

    I agree completely. NCSoft likely saw this as an untapped source of revenue since EK dried up. We all know how long that lasted.
