    Hey, so why are the bots I've reported still in game botting? It's been over two weeks. I thought "once players are caught" they're banned? Mmm?

    Well, at least there's hope for the loyal 10% of players or so that are going to remain by the end of this month. Sure, it might take a while but they can down all the content despite declining numbers just as long as they're a ranger.

    Oh yeah fair enough! Not all games will appeal to all people, nothing wrong with that! I just brought Overwatch up in this thread because it's beta drained a lot of players temporarily from BDO so I predict its launch tomorrow will do the same. Basically as a  "you think this game was empty this past weekend? Wait until tomorrow evening." type of thing.

  4. Novel added a post in a topic Is this Archeage 2.0 ?   

    Look, honestly, the game is already drying up. It's a lot of fun but you're always going to be behind the hard-core players that are going to be here until the end of the game and, at the same time, not really have peers that are "on your level" because the game is not attracting many new players at all. As a result, you'll be shit on by the hardcore players, and won't have a influx of new players that you can turn around and shit on yourself for fun.
    I'd love to see the game shape up and deliver but I'm not betting it will. I log in to make my horses afk run and that's it. For AA, it was the same: I logged in for a month or two after I "quit" to pay land taxes. Eventually, I just uninstalled. That's likely what is going to happen here for me as well. I'll be sad the game is dead but I won't be said that the Daum employees that allowed it to die will be out of a job.

    Overwatch has cross genre appeal. I don't even like shooters and I'm excited for it! Anyway, I'm not just talking out my ass- during the last beta weekend for Overwatch, BDO was dead.... and that was even with 3 (4?) fewer channels and two weeks less of leaking players out every hole.
    If you haven't tried it, you should. Just AFK horses or fishing in bdo as you give it a play.

    15 hours from now Overwatch launches and it'll probably pretty ghostly in BDO.  BDO is fun but with all the issues it has, I feel like it's going to set the record for folding.

    "1100 pearls please." But in fox language it sounds like "Yip! Yip! Yip! Yip!"

    Snowman pet: 1100 pearls. Constant splashing sound effect, unbreedable with any other pet.

  10. Novel added a post in a topic What the population wants   

    I can wait for all the content releases however, what I fear is that the game won't be in a playable state by the time those content patches arrive. BDO is hemorrhaging players.
    Priority of needs:
    1) Hackers/Botter crackdown and a desync resolution
    2) Class balance
    3) Ninja/Kunoichi release
    4) Content release

    They pissed off a lot of people that were willing to pay by refusing to give refunds on the Maehwa's Atanis costume. They changed it after they had been selling it in the store for a week or two then said no refunds.  How's that for a good business model- rip off the part of the customer base that's willing to buy a $30 costume for a class back when it was still broken?

    There are people that would volunteer to do it for free. Hell, there ARE people doing it for free by posting videos showing the hackers/botters and they still won't take disciplinary action. It's not that they can't take action, it's that they aren't.

    When Jouska said there were no dupes occurring when forum posts questioned seeing 15 coral rings listed back to back, he was right! It's just hackers/scripts/bots unloading their inventory.
    What a relief! /s
    If Daum's CMs have time to trawl the forums locking threads about bots/hackers, they have time to log into game and go to the farm spots and ban the bots/hackers.

  15. Novel added a post in a topic Game feels alot empiter/deader   

    AFK is the way to play.
    As for it being emptier, what do you expect? Daum's not made any move to fix the game in regards to desyncs and bots/hackers. A CM/GM showing up every once in a while to ban a singular disruptive hacker at a world boss is not the same as them going to Skeles/Treants and banning the 5+ bots on every channel. Since real players can't compete with cheaters, there's no point to keep trying.
