  1. Prime Royal Captain Armor Box question

    Yes, I'm sure the boxes and Shining chests are by choice. The only one you have to worry about is the regular chest, which is random. If you want to be absolutely sure, you can always just right click it. If it allows you to choose, you'll stop immediately. If you see the opening animation, just tap a movement key to stop the opening process and the item will remain intact.
  2. Prime Royal Captain Armor Box question

    IIRC, Prime Captain Armor Boxes & Shining Prime Captain Armor Chests allow you to choose. If it says Prime Captain Armor Chest, then it'll be random for any class.
  3. Mercenary For PVP

    Yes I remember them, and there were ways to get kills by standing in certain sections of the map where people traversed to get there that was just out of bodyguard sight range. There are videos of this but I can't be bothered tracking them down. OP is talking about hiring guards to follow him around, not guards that stand around in town. It's just another system that will be exploited and OP won't be able to avoid PvP regardless. What was your point exactly?
  4. Mercenary For PVP

    It's unlikely that such a system would work well. NPC guards are easily distracted, and all you need is one person to distract the guards to lure them away while other people kill you. Also, any system that depends on the person being attacked first before guards take action is likely to be exploited. For example, a person could hire guards and run around with them harassing other people because they know that the other person can't fight back without consequences. It's highly unfair of you to call other replies "dumb" when you haven't even considered the problems that are likely to arise from the idea you want to implement.
  5. +1 Those slaps on the wrists to people exploiting FP were pretty telling about how much NC cares to punish hackers. In any case, licensing XIGNCODE3 is just another means of off-loading the work to another party so that they can save money by not hiring additional employees for actual timely surveillance. This is a bandage on a gun-shot wound. It'll help for a couple of weeks (optimistically), but I fear it'll just harm legitimate players and the overall population in the long run.
  6. Mouseclic.com RETURNS !

    Nimporte, your site was always a wonderful resource even if it wasn't kept up-to-date. Glad you're back and making what was already good even better. Cheers and best of luck to you in the new year.
  7. Playerbase (If It's Worth Coming Back)

    You keep saying that I'm missing your point, but you appear to be missing mine as well. It's not the obligation of the players to say positive things to others in order to retain the game's diminishing player base. It's not my responsibility to withhold or rephrase opinions, positive or negative, to convince other people to play this game. If I choose to do so, it's a bonus that helps them and this game, but if I choose otherwise, I'm well within my rights to do so. I'm not advertising anything if the choice is presented by OP. I'm not beholden to NCSoft. They're not paying me to convince others to stay. I'm a gamer that's interested in helping other people with making better decisions. If I feel it's in the better interests of players who are on the fence to go with either this or a different game, I can and will do so, just as it's well within your rights to defend it. But you're a hypocrite if you think that some opinions should be voiced while others should not. You're the one jumping to conclusions and making assumptions left and right. Where do you see hate? I simply said FFXIV was the safer choice, and there are numbers to back that choice. It's not entirely subjective when the other game has nearly 40x (or more) of Aion's current player base.
  8. Playerbase (If It's Worth Coming Back)

    You didn't do much better with your reply to his question, so pot meet kettle. Since you want to waste OP's time, go ahead and lay out some reasons to play this game over FFXIV.
  9. Playerbase (If It's Worth Coming Back)

    OP is asking about player base, and it IS about picking. OP laid out two choices, I gave the safer of the two. You still want to know why? Statistics for December 2017 Happy?
  10. Playerbase (If It's Worth Coming Back)

    Well, I could tell OP to come back, but I'd have few reasons to give to substantiate that choice. Put yourself in OP's position. Would you want someone telling you to pick a stagnant game over one that's thriving? I know I wouldn't. Also, I'll do whatever I please, thank you.
  11. Playerbase (If It's Worth Coming Back)

    FFXIV is undoubtedly the safer choice.
  12. 6.0 info

    This is definitely true. Despite all the additions to the game in previous iterations, they've managed to keep the game consistently within 30gb as far as I can tell.
  13. 6.0 info

    Nah, I just figured since they're removing so many maps, they'd either revamp the abyss as well or remove portions of it. I'm wondering how it will fit in with the leveling changes being made, if at all. Thanks for posting all this.
  14. 6.0 info

    Any mention of how the abyss is being changed?
  15. Is 5.8 worth it at any point?

    Yes and no. If you're in any way invested in the game and still enjoying yourself, you already know that the gear obtained in 5.8 can be traded for newer things in 6.0, so everything that you work for won't be a complete waste. If you're feeling burnt out and want to take a break from the game however, now is also one of the best times to do it since you know a lot of things are changing once 6.0 drops. So if you want to take it easy, go ahead and just put yourself on cruise control. Do whatever is the most fun for you and just hoard kinah and start fresh once 6.0 is released. You already know how NCSoft operates: after a few months of letting the hardcore player base acquire new and shiny things, end-game gear inevitably gets stuffed into an event and given out as rewards. If you want the latest and greatest RIGHT when 6.0 drops, keep playing. If you can play the waiting game, just take things easy and play casually.
