    I wonder how the whales are feeling,  imagine after spending $5000 to get everything, the game is dead xD, love it.

    I would imagine if they have $5000 to waste on a 12 year old re-release then they would not care one bit since they have the funds to do so.

  2. I think you are forgetting the problem with siege is actually asmo's not having the balls to cap all forts. They have the power they could force elyos to contest if they want medals. However with the number of players NA had you do not need to contest every fort since the 3 inner uppers is enough for the population to obtain a steady stream of medals.

    Elyos have no incentive to show up for asmo forts because why would you go when you know the PvE instances will be accessible by the losing faction. Beyond this asmo's rarely show up to contest the elyos forts because they are happy with their medals that elyos get free defense medals not going for inners.

    Siege is designed for the 1000s not for the 300-500 people showing up each side so ultimately it is no ones fault it is actually the games design fault and the lack of players in the NA region because NA players dislike Aion.

    just out of curiosity, has the recent ban wave changed your/your legion's mind?

    I do not want to start drama because they did ban some people but the 4 AP traders we know have yet to be banned so my friends said this was the last straw. They believe that what Kibblez said was an outright lie despite us being able to prove a few people got banned to them. They are convinced that people bought immunity and will never be banned.

    I broke down what kibblez said and we really need to see a few more ban waves that get announced with-in the next week or 2 to show they are still working on banning all the AP traders or people will not come back/resub because many AP traders are still out there running about currently.

    I know you were not talking to me but i was in a similar situation to azi and wanted to share the thoughts of my friends. It will be interesting to see their response tho.

    Bots are still rampant and not being banned. I don't see a list of banned players released either, unfortunately. My guess is that the amount of APtraders that got punishment is really low, should've easily been 100+ players doing it.

    KR has that bot destroyer so chances are we will get that fast tracked.

  5. I hope to see another ban next week or the week after. As it stands the 4 AP traders i know are not banned. This makes me very sad, However i have heard people have been banned so that makes me optimistic but still keeping my hope at arms length. 

    Either way this is a good start please inform us every time you do a ban wave.

    I meant farmed guards for hundreds of hours 

    If you ban everyone who ap traded you may as well shut the game 

    All I am saying is that there are different level of offenders. 

    And I dont trust NCSoft to be "fair"


    Not true, Siel elyos have lots of players. Dunno about other servers but it looks like SL elyos was barely affected.

    Hoping the official update amounts to something meaningful. Hopefully not a generic update such as "we're still thoroughly investigating the evidence and hope to provide an update soon".

    Personally i can not see this being the post. They are to lazy to update us on it over the past what week or 2 so chances are they will make an actual announcement/enforce w/e it is they are going to enforce in the coming 1-2 days.

    youre statement is absolutely pathetic. would you like me to show you the purchase history of my account for classic. its not in the hundreds or below that. its not 0. its above 4 figures. so before you make a pathetic statement like that. check the facts 1st!

    Are you flexing 4 figures spent on a company that is known for consumer neglect? Your money your choice, Unlike some here on the forums i do not judge you for that. I know  34 players just off the top of my head who have also spent 4 figures on classic(who have put well over 100,000 in to retail) that buy kinah from outside sources as well. These players do not come to the forums because they also used the services of AP traders. 

    Hell i know one player who has spent over 10,000+ just because they will not play with people who have no boons so what they do is top up other peoples accounts with quna and get them the boons(Along with the ability to get the DC spear priority buying if it drops in a run of the people they bought boons for). This player also uses the service of AP traders.

    I whole heartedly believe they are weighing up the options on between is it the legit or illegitimate players who spent more. If it is the legitimate players they will announce a ban wave before the 3 month subscriptions run out. Then after a week or in the same week announce 1.5. The other side would be they announce a ban wave after 1.5 comes out ban a few bots and a few non spenders who AP traded and call it a "ban wave of all the ap traders".


    This is simply how little faith i have in NCwest doing the right thing by the consumers who uphold the ToS and CoC with-in the product NCwest provides.

    We tend to ignore/forget the hackers we suddenly stop seeing so long as some of them still remain. People then lose confidence in the process and stop reporting bots/hackers/exploits even while bans are happening and it just gets worse and worse. 

    Let me explain why some people know how unique this PoV is. There are plenty of people who played SL-E back in the day, A friend who got upset with the game cracked downloaded a cheat tool and reported their own email attached to the account saying they are cheating. THEY NEVER GOT BANNED. We then had our entire guild report his account. THEY NEVER GOT BANNED.

    The only time bans happen is when specific people report them because they seem to have sway with who ever does the banning.

    There is only unique times that bans have actually been handed out and they usually co-inside with game updates the majority of the time for damage control. We will get a ban on the AP traders it mite be perma it mite be 1-7 days but no matter how the ban gets handed out the chances are they will announce 1.5 along with it.

    Ok, i don't know the basis of your idea. But here's the article: Korean gamers take action against NCSoft’s ‘misleading’ marketing

    This is the power of how gamers can influence your stocks, it is no similar with other companies where their product and services defines the strength of their current stocks. Take note that this dip in stocks (almost 25% shaved off) happens in the course of 5days and has continuous going downtrend to the next few days.

    I was really hoping you were going to link this and try and mention what you did.


     This is the video in question.


    Kim Seong-hoe, an influential game analyst who operates YouTube channel G Encyclopedia, posted a online video on how even main Lineage players are having drained of NCSoft’s ongoing rollout of pricey paid merchandise deals, though increasing inquiries about no matter whether NCSoft can stage a turnaround with yet another Lineage installment titled Lineage W, to be released later this 12 months. 

    Look at Lineage2M and LM. NCsoft has long since struggled with cannibalization it has been brought up every 2-3 public conference calls. All those players that left LineageM are more than likely playing L2M now. This is why they can get away with the baloney they pull. Most who leave an NCsoft game simply go to another NCsoft game and i would bet that their consumer payment logging show this trend as well. L2M climbed what? 21,000 YoY while LM lost 25,000 YoY. Coincidence? Unlikely.

    You can listen to all their conference calls at https://kr.ncsoft.com/en/ir/irArchive/earningsRelease.do

    how do you work that out? I was spending money on 3 accounts. all I want is to be able to play the game without hackers, AP traders, and bots and I don't think that is asking a lot to a company I am spending my free time with and my money.  I also think you find there were a lot more players paying money and just want the same as me.  the ones calling this out just want a fair game. 

    If you are paying money to a company expecting them to ban hackers in which every single person who has played Aion knows they have not banned any hackers for the better part of 5 years aside from very few unique cases then...No words can describe but i will try.

    Think about what you just said "the ones calling this out just want a fair game." Why is the forums not flooded with complaints? It is like max 50 people who are putting up a fuss about it and at least 15% of those people are people just arguing. This means the majority do not care, They either know how NCsoft operates due to past experiences so they do not bother or they are cheating and do not care. From my experience there are at a minimum 137(hackers) on SL, That is the ones that show up on the DPS meter and are not the ones that just use speed hacks since they are decent at the game but just need a little something to have an advantage.

    NCwest will forever be full of big spending cheaters because it buys near perfect immunity.

    Do you think spending money in-game has an effect? I think it's a penny on what's happening to NCSoft atm due to mishandling of games.Kmv25Xl.png

    If you honestly think it is the mishandling of games you are so far from understanding why it even went down. The past 4 years minimum in both KR and NA all NCsoft games have been mishanded. You think people just went you know what yes i do feel for the consumers i am going to sell all i own? No that is not the case you look in to so much more about a corporation than how they treat their consumers.



    Look at the YoY it shows that consumers are happily spending more than last year on PC titles overall and less on Mobile games(all be it not that much change overall). Even more impressive when you compare B&S PC YoY considering B&S 2M was announced and launched August 26th PC. This again has very little to do with why it went down.

    You and me both. It's just sad that they're priorities are suspending players who call them out on their bullshit and promises that the won't commit to. It sickens me even worse that the hackers/AP traders have stayed in game this long and that people actually back them up, but you hop on a pserver and they get banned instantly. What's even worse is that the pservers care more about their community and the game then the actual company of the game. 

    Which brings me back to GET YOUR PRIORITIES STRAIGHT NCSOFT. 

    Well this is simple, Those who do not call them out spend more money on the game than those that do call them out. Start spending 100s of 1000s and become a mega whale and they may listen to you problem solved.
