  1. Make abusers pay for extra entries and then unban them?

    Oh nice. At least there's one game that did it! Do you remember when we had the stolen credit cards being used by gold sellers to sell the bundle pack things items? Good times. DX
  2. How player-friendly is this game now?

    I'll be straight with you. It has significantly fewer people than Gameforge. The next patches aren't looking too good, if word out of EU is accurate. We have no word on when we're getting those next patches. We've had a main PvP instance closed for three months or so(?) because of a bug that NC-Korea apparently can't fix, a bug that led to a huge banwave a few days ago. You're going to have to spend a lot of time or money to catch up. NC-West hasn't been subtle with its latest cashgrab, which is blatant p2w. The dependence on RNG to enchant your gear/skills/etc in this game can be brutal. It is a pretty game, especially for a game that came out in, like, 2008 in Korea, but it's really not in good shape. We have one community manager, and he works primarily on another NCsoft game, Blade and Soul. The RL money store is kind of pitiful compared to other regions. There's a whole host of other reasons to play or not play, but I'm not in a cheerful enough mood to give the good things. @Aly-DN might be able to give the good parts of this game.
  3. Make abusers pay for extra entries and then unban them?

    That requires even more work on NCsoft's end, especially since it involves RL kinah, which means accounting department shit. I imagine their accounting and legal departments are already busy dealing with the whales who I nearly guarantee filed a chargeback with their bank/card provider (automatically keeping their accounts permabanned with no chance of appeal, anyway). The last thing NCsoft is going to want to organize/work on is a way for players to pay them back. It's not as simple as it sounds, and a ton of players would protest at how many runs they'd be charged for (because "I dIDn'T dO ThAT mAnY. NcSoFt tOTalLy FlUbBeD tHe CouNts tO gET moRe MoNeY"). What game has allowed players to pay them back? I can't readily think of one.
  4. Make abusers pay for extra entries and then unban them?

    That's a lot harder to do than to just ban the accounts. I wanted them stripped, too, but, yeah.
  5. Make abusers pay for extra entries and then unban them?

    That's unrealistic on every front. This is just the same/similar treatment NCsoft gave the people who abused the instance entry bug back in the EB Online days.
  6. Official EC-ban thread. Post your thoughts

    That's my favorite one. I like to believe y'all are smart enough to know not to play with an exploit that blatantly costs NCsoft money, or maybe even have the memory of NCsoft previously banning players for instance count abuse due to a bug back in 4.X, but I guess not.

  8. just an advice

    And what do you do when you don't have enough players left in the game after throwing in some big p2w events for a while?

    m e n t a l g y m n a s t i c s Then again, if you're MetalPhantom, you probably didn't get a 7 day, did you? Hey, you got to enjoy the game with your exploited gear for 3 months! Why sad?

    He's just going to "take a break from the game" if he doesn't come back in one week.
  11. EC compensation ? it is been almost 2 month!

    Hey, y'all got to benefit from cheating for three odd months or w/e, so gratz there. And some of the temporary bans got to benefit for three months and continue benefiting when their ban is up. Besides, this is a good move on NC's part, and I'll leave you to puzzle out why permabanning even big spenders is brilliant. (and some of the big names who got banned are buying/bought accounts as we speak, lol)
  12. EC compensation ? it is been almost 2 month!

    And some people are so addicted to the game, they'll drop big money to start playing again.
  13. The End.

    I very strongly doubt f2p 50+ runs a day Metal took a 7 day when big money others got perma'd.

    If the value of the 1k little things I stole exceeds a certain amount, my punishment goes from a misdemeanor to a felony. That's how it works IRL in the US. Cool mental gymnastics, though.

    Holy shit, NCsoft actually did something. 24-72 hours isn't a lot, but GG on the 7-14 to permas. :>
