  1. Patronus added a post in a topic [Maintenance] Urgent Maintenance April 27   

    Its simple really, pearl shop makes them money.  Fixing things like lag etc, costs them money.  Make money... spend money...  What do you think they are going to choose?  Companies continue to use broke stuff as long as the profit remains.  When the profit dries up, particularly because of things needing fixed they do a cost analysis to determine if its more worth while to keep their money or spend some to fix it.  If they think it'll cost more to fix it then they'll immediately make they abandon it and move on to something else that can make money right away with.  That's the problem with the FTP model.  Since the FTP model has come about MMO's have slipped markedly in quality.  There isn't a subscription base to keep happy.  With FTP constant micro transactions bring in a money stream.  Because FTP revolves around micro transactions and not subscription the emphasis gets placed on new micro transaction items and not content or equipment upgrades and maintenance.  A high player turn over rate is expected in a FTP system where in a subscription system they need to work hard at maintaining a base to keep money coming in, thus content.  So in a nutshell, FTP games don't require as much money spent continuously on development (content).  Want a better game, get these companies away from FTP and back to subscriptions where they felt accountable to a subscriber base.  In FTP they'll take you or leave you, some one new will try out the game tomorrow and maybe spend a couple dollars.

    I'd expect at least the same delay as there was for the DK's EU NA release.

    It's really funny seeing all this Striker when? stuff.  If Korea is JUST getting it, why would you expect or even entertain the idea that we will be getting it before next year?  Put your big person pants on and wait, it'll eventually come and when it does you can be happy but until then you can be mad at the internet for showing you spoilers of things to come that aren't scheduled for you to get yet.

    So this "Steed" thing they "added", what did they add other then "Steed" supposedly being on the horse some place if it has a set of abilities?  The two skills at breeding has been there already seeing as I've gotten a T7 like that before now.  So did they actually add anything?

    FIRST: I'm really unhappy they are removing earned rewards now.  They took away my black spirit egg that was a quest reward from last year.  The egg had zero warning or hints that it could or would be removed.  So i think its a real JERK move to remove people's rewards.  SECOND:  The changes to dueling need to be removed right away.  It's an open invitation to exploit.  In node/territory wars it looks like the home guard can duel one of their own parties then when that party's health is low from the combat the other guild(s) they can end the duel and get a wonder group heal.  This is the EU and NA, it might have gone over in Korea but if they can exploit it here, they are going to so this needs removed before it becomes a problem.

    The mistake was mine.  I had 11 workers in one town and I put 11 materials in that town then told them to repeat by clicking their repeat all button.  Apparently it counted as many trips as they could have done against the project instead of how many they actually could do because of materials.  So that cut into the amount of workers I could send.  Bad mechanic, but my mistake

    This is actually the worst Christmas event I've seen.  The Santa event is so close to being exactly the same as the one they have been doing in Arc that I wonder if there could be legal issues.  They should have had Santa drop one big present in the middle of town every night cycle, it stays there for 10 minutes and everyone can only interact with it once pr cycle.  People would be happy.  Right now its like Santa is some sick demented jerk flying around town laughing at everyone he thinks are jerks as he watches them chase behind jumping off buildings etc to get the mystery goody he dropped.  VERY disappointed! The snow looks great though.

    Horse racing will be added?  I wasn't aware they had fixed the movement glitching macro'ing that's been going on with horses.  If that hasn't been fixed then the horse racing is going to be really lame, reduced to who can spam that glitching macro the best.

    Lost a guild house to a 35 mil bid, we had bid 25 mil, still had 2 bids remaining and was on location for the last 30+ mins of the auction waiting.  At no time, even being there, having remaining bids and periodically looking at the guild manager did we ever know we had been outbid and we were prepared to bid more.  Total load of crap.  Between launch and other crap shoots like this I'm feeling more fondly about Trion.

    Node War Tower Placement
    For going on about how the first step in a node war is to find the enemy you have sure made it easy.  With such a large combat area its very annoying how narrow the choices are for actually placing a tower that isn't obvious.  On top of that something like a bush is a major obstacle in placements, yes a bush.  Open up the placement options a little bit and make it so bushes aren't an issue, trees make sense but bushes?  I've found several virtually flat areas and its completely red for placement even though its in the correct area still.

    So for loosing hours of head start because I was involuntarily put on a different server then I created my character on, for taking well over 24 hours to get my claimed items, not getting my title until official launch day and for STILL not having my reserved name on my used character, I get 500 loyalty and 5 GM apology...  Really?  Really rather underwhelming, thought I'm expecting such now....
    "Only one 'name swap' will be provided."  I swear they originally said TWO and now its down to just one.  Two was bad enough considering some people made four characters right out of the gate.  Now we've been downgraded to just one!?!  Would it be easier to kick us if we closed our eyes for you?
    WHY when I try to do my Character Name Swap Registration do my characters on Edan show up but ZERO characters on Orwen are showing up to be selected to swap names with!?!

    Still...waiting...I'm afraid they've gotten comfortable with this now so there isn't any rush for them to take care of us.  They'll get around to our compensation when they get around to it, kinda like we put you on the wrong server, don't like it, to bad, start over on the one you should have been on.

    Bought cash as well and pressing refresh hasn't accomplished anything in 13 hours.  I see it on my account online, I see it from my bank online, I know its went through but sure as heck isn't available for me to use.  I should have known better after the launch item fiasco.  Prolly be days till I can use the cash I purchased as well huh....

    I was one of the Conqueror head start buyers who made a character on Edan and got involuntarily put on Orwen at launch and had to wait well over the 24 hours for my items and am still waiting for the name swap to get my reserved name on my character I had to remake on Edan.  My title wasn't finally fixed untill today.  I still see no compensation coupon or anything else.  WHEN can I expect this compensation you keep saying I will get, in fact you appear to falsely claim I have already received it.  I see dealines to claim everything that are FAST approaching but yet have no way to claim them, WTF!?!
    Getting a headache trying to figure out how you actually even submit a ticket.

    It wont be in your normal inventory.  Check your pearl inventory.  The costume items go in there when they get unequipped.  They will unequip and go into your pearl inventory every time you equip a fishing pole.  They never go into your regular inventory.  Check when servers come back up, they may not be lost after all.  Least I hope this resolves your problem

    Nope, got it now.  When you originally posted and in your responses, it appeared to me, that you were saying you remade your character with your reserved name and restarted right away.  We both know that's not possible and that's why I was so bothered.  It seemed like you were saying everyone else was stupid for not doing the same.  Now I see that you didn't make a new character with your reserved name until days later.  This could obviously be done so why then did you comment like you did to my original comment?  Sorry about calling you a liar but the way you were going on it was like you were trying to defend that you had remade your character within hours of the launch with the already used name.  So now if I understand you right, it's basically an alt that you've just started now that's using your reserved name right?  I too made a new character on the server I wanted to be on but I halted the deletion of the original moved one when they announced later they would do name transfers because I really want my name on my main character.  Anyhoo, sorry about that, hopefully things get better from here.

    Did you recheck your pearl tab?  They never go into your inventory and if you use something like a fishing pole they get unequipped and put back in your pearl tab.

    Within the first couple hours of Conquerors is when characters ended up on the wrong servers.  So unless you made your character during the first few hours of the conquerors launch and then didn't play again for days you couldn't have A) ended up with a character that got switched to dif server B) been able to instantly delete it.  I am not aware of characters getting mistakenly bumped around from one server to another at any time other then the initial conquerors launch.  If this is the case some one else let me know and this company will be even worse then I thought.  I don't think that's the case though as I haven't yet seen a crap storm that would have resulted if characters continues to shuffle around to different servers on their own after it initially happened.  So please tell us since you've wanted to be so cryptic, exactly when did you create your character that ended up getting moved to a different server and wasn't part of the conquerors launch?  Or are you trying to say that since it wasn't the same day, that you gave up 24 hours of the conquerors head start to make aa character with your reserved name?
