    Must be a typo. Cavaro R for Tamer was withdrawn from the CS not so long ago if i remember correctly.

    Just tried to log on and it seems my password has also been reset. This email (alias) is only used for BDO, for reasons like this.
    Now, if this alleged third party site got hacked how the hell would Kakao know MY email was taken.
    Kakao either got compromised or one of their bargain basement service providers did.

    These are issues you need to fix yourself. Not all of us experience these issues so it's not the server.
    Outside of the known failing channels, please look into your own home networking and stop pushing the blame to things you don't understand.

  7. Mentos added a post in a topic Major new bug with weapon swap on warriors. They patched the bugged KR version instead of KR hotfixed version...   

    Yes, the core mechanics of the entire combat of the class currently feels like playing with an extra 10.000 latency with this bug in PVP.
    Anyone not thinking this bug is major must seriously play by clicking their hotkeys slowly manually with their mouse instead of using button combos.
    If you have any decent reaction time and quick phase with your combat and cancels, this bug is absolutely awful and ruins the fluidity of warrior combat completely in PVP.
    It's a reason why there was an outcry in korea when this bug occured, and the warriors was called a meme fishing class until it was hotfixed.

    guys ... guys! ... some of you are saying that horse gear cost money and that it has to be fixed right?
    What about my Value-2-Pac?
    It did cost me money too and I wasn't able to "use it" for some 10 hours. Cashback real?

    While you look to reposition, or wait 2-3 secs of a skill cd, it's always nice to throw in a BT, the more you get used to it, the more natural it becomes. At first i was on your side, i used to say "meh, cba to BT everytime", now it's just natural, i don't even think about it.
    Ok got it, like those skills with 100% crit, just crosscut happens to be 50, ok.. hmm makes sense.

    C'était pour moi cette remarque ? Si oui, pour ta gouverne, je suis développeur, donc j'ai tout de même une vague idée de ce qui peut se produire 
    Je te conseille d'aller voir le monde du développement et tu te rendras compte que l'ergonomie n'est pas au dessus des difficultés techniques. Quand un petit truc d'ergonomie coûte 3 mois de dev, bah on la zappe en partant du principe que le service offert est supérieur à l'expérience un peu moins bonne que cela occasionne.

    1. As the OP states. If it has affected you, you get your password reset. Problem solved.
    2. What does this have to do with you.
    3. What does this have to do with you.
    4. Lmfao. Facebook token system getting compromised for bdo accounts that are data dumped somewhere. Mk.
    5. This is my career.
    I'm more than positive that if any of these came about, they'd let you, us, know.
    They'd be liable if they were the cause of security risks outside of their own game.
    Clearly because they did not give the site and stated exactly what the vector of attack was in the OP(if you were educated you'd of noticed?), none of your conspiracy is the issue as it stands.
    If you're as interested as you claim to be, how about you go look for the site yourself? I found it in 10 minutes.
    This is literally why us cyberSec nerds qualify for risk management roles as well(I'm actually pretty sure it's a relativity labeled position).
    I do agree that we need 2fa. I do agree that we need HTTPs.
    Please keep in mind that those have their flaws as well, and in some cases, can be easier to bypass than what is currently being used. Simply because you see nothing doesn't mean there isn't.

  15. flukeSG2 added a post in a topic Stop the griefers!   

    The definition you provided from Wikipedia assumes you know the griefer's intent, which you can not unless they verbally tell you.  Whether or not the griefer derives pleasure from the act is irrelevant.  The fact that they are causing grief by irritating, angering and annoying another makes them a griefer.  You can read below where this word comes from.  I'm not the one missing the point, but go ahead keep quoting this Wiki entry it if it makes you feel better, not going to change the facts though.
    No, I'm labeling those who pay no thought to someone else grinding there already and are grinding over the top of you or purposefully "irritating, angering or annoying" that first player, which is often the case and the reason to do so.  Someone who shows no modicum of etiquette or decorum as you said, or as I said, simple respect for someone else already there, in doing so causing them "grief".  The informal definition of grief is trouble or annoyance, and where the word "griefer" is derived from.
    As far as your situation you cited, yeah I would agree they sound immature and stupid, because you were clearly not doing what they accused you of.

    Guilds are actively downvoting this on reddit to ensure they can continue to abuse it under the radar. This is how broken it is.

    So an end user can properly secure their information.
    If its a payment solution, end users can expect their info being used for illegal purchases as well and secure themselves against it.
    If its a fan site, users can know if its an account that shares a password of theirs, what they've put on the forums, etc.
    If its an automatic login system (like the facebook integration) that uses tokens and no passwords have been obtained, users know that and can do shit about it.
    Don't give me the "daily basis" crap, I've dealt with assholes breaking into my shit quite a few times, and its pretty handy to know exactly what the hell they have and if I should change shit, and to what extend.

  19. Alrikmerc added a post in a topic Need Help Gearing   

    Ocelot gave a decent breakdown, but I'll go more indepth if i can.
    He mentioned the Ultimate Reform stone, that turns a blue or green into a yellow.  It's more costly than the blue and green reform stones, but worth it because it skips the middle steps.
    If you're going grunil (which is good, but I think there might be better combinations) getting it all Ultimate (yellow) will be a good step if all you're doing is leveling.  If you want to PvP before you have full boss gear, depending on your class, I might avoid grunil altogether.  It's also a heavy suit of armor so it isn't the greatest for PvE if your aim is to sustain the grind for long periods (your bags fill up too quick).
    Your end goal is boss gear, the gold stuff.  There are a lot of threads on this forum, and you might even want to ask in the specific class forum for the character you play, that will tell you what a good mid-range set is for you.  It might be evasion and accuracy based, it might be just raw AP/DP, classes are all a bit different, though there are a few basic things you can rely on.
    Accuracy helps you hit things so your AP is worth a damn.  Offense is more important than defense in PvE for the majority of classes (if they die, they can't hit you).  Start stocking hard/sharp crystal shards for the day you are ready to hit the enchant-a-thon.

    You don't need it.
    Why would they give that out.
    I can't think of any practical reason to give this to an end user and i deal with situations like this on a daily basis.
    Not to mention, smarty pants. Giving the site out publically would increase the vector of attack and possibly jeopardize emails. Many people use the same password for multiple accounts. If you couldn't figure that out yourself i don't know what you expected to do with the site once you got the name for it.

    Don't do bashims - Bashims gives me 1/hour. Pretty much any other spot in valencia gives me 3-5 scrolls/hour. In fact, in half an hour of doing a mission at cadries today, I got 4 scrolls.
