    If you're not willing to do whatever it takes to keep it then you clearly don't deserve it, thus, it's not yours either.

    This is a point and often very helpful in figuring out issues in an IT environment.
    If someone was in a tech role, i'd expect them to figure out what he was doing differently than those that are lagging.
    You're wrong here.
    What? How does this support an argument what so  ever? It has no backing, warrant or description what so ever AND it assumes the arguers position which is 100% against the flow of argumentation. 
    You're wrong here.
    THIS is a better counter argument to obvious goofing, and it's a self contained point.
    You "Can't" avoid people during node wars because that's node wars.
    That being said, you can avoid the occurrence by not going to node wars but that defeats one of the purposes of the game. 
    You're both wrong here.

    Learn how to argue. You'll learn how to separate snark from points.

    Sorry but are you aware of how the argumentative process works?
    A whole post often contains more than one point, that's like how politicians do shit bro, "Here is some good shit in my idea but in order for me to be willing to push for it you have to accept in this bad shit as well".
    If you're not capable of having every bit of your ideas picked at i suggest you step down from even wanting to argue anything.
    Are you people not here to be critical of your claims and have  them criticized the same way you  criticize? No? Then why do what you're doing?
    Do what you want but in many of the occurrences I've seen him  challenge people, they back down because what he's challenging they know they can't keep up with.
    Comes down to human norms. Most people are too cowardly to admit when they are wrong.

    Because you can't counter his points? Yeah, that makes you intelligent. Good job skiddo.
    Clearly y'all ain't looking to solve problems.

    But the only way to get stronger is to grind, which means they need a spot, by taking yours makes them stronger, no?
    Just a perspective that i'm sure you won't see because of sodium concentrate in your eyelids.

    Actually this time, I believe there is a conflict with some of the channels on a performance level, especially during node wars time. The source of these issues, i'm not sure, as it could be a few things off the top of my head.
    I haven't really stopped to do enough research in order to have more data on the issues but the video the noob posted is pretty spot on as to the occurrence.
    First thing that comes to mind is over load & over flow in conjuncture with the fact that many entities are performing actions(in the event of multiple node wars at once on different locations of the map as well as random afkers continuing the thread process for that particular channel/shard[whatever]).
    Whether or not this occurrence happens on EU or not, i'm not sure, but it is a reality on NA. I'm not quite sure how often but it seems to be.
    It'd be nice to have guilds that do wars on a daily basis, or a collab of guilds working together to help to reproduce and or flesh out more information on this type of issue, unlike the kids on these forums screaming for it to be fixed, If any guilds would like to get together and help reproduce these issues so we can report findings to kakao, it'd be helpful.

    .... They being pearl abyss? Who developed the game like this across all the servers?
    Technically it'd be more simple(in theory) for them to swap the war channels on to non-proxy connections.
    I think that's what you meant to say

  10. War added a post in a topic Lets create petitions for kr publisher/devs.   

    Allow me to clarify.
    Not having the experience of being on call center or a cashier for may hurt more than having that experience does, i wasn't talking emotional.
    Seeing as that's what you saw initially, i'm not entirely interested in continuing conversation with you, as you seem like YAT(Yet Another Troll), out for any type or response to get you off- i'm not interested. Cheers.

  11. War added a post in a topic [Notice] Account Security   

    I don't remember any mention of sub-contracting in the OP. Let's not making it something it may not be due to a lack of information, also they did tell us what type of data was compromised, Email and password of those affected. If they were, they got a password reset from the company.
    Literally if you were not a part of that list, your'e fine. That's what I take from OP but tbh, I don't know the entire scope of the attack was, assuming it was even an attack.
    They gave us what they needed to. If you've any experience in Risk Management you know why they didn't give us any more.

    It might hurt me more than it seems like I "boast" about it.
    I don't know what it's like to work retail, so i couldn't imagine the type of bullshit they have to deal with.
    I also don't know what it's like to answer call center. Not saying those aren't high end careers. Clearly, I was being a ----- in that post intentionally.
    At the end of it, i don't think i'm better than the next, just another dude.

    ... So.. Payment wall uses a token auth system, NOT our bdo login information(significantly less secure on all levels in regards to this type of business, not to mention, would invalidate PCI DSS compliance).
    If paymentwall had a breach in their system, the last thing we'd be needing to reset is our passwords.
    2fa isn't actually limited to phone access.
    It's any level of secondary factor authentication, this includes email or even desktop application level interface.
    Of course as you move up the tiers, the more secure things become, but two factor auth isn't limited to any specific types of technology(not on the surface at least, there are some requirements for the technologies allowed) but more so the aspect of a second layer of auth to verify the first.
    It's redundant but it is it's redundancy that makes it effective.
    In reality, they are all insecure. Nothing is impenetrable. This entire industry is more so about making it not worth the time of pesky little kids running backtrack or kali.

    Now, (almost)I'm all for 2fa. 89.9% all for it.
    Have you ever implemented 2fa?
    There is no such thing as "Easy" anything in regards to what you just stated.
    These should be examples.
    There are also a lot of legalities and agreements, etc, in regards to setting these technologies up.
    Do not assume that because something Seems simple, means it is.
    Even so. Even with 2FA, if this particular issue was to occur, the same precaution would need to take place.
