    Surprised no one offered up the direct download link for the OP... well, it's that for at least a few days, until the next patch/fix...

    Blade and Soul did boob jiggle in the extreme.  Holy cow, it's too rubber-like.
    I hear a lot of people excited about the character creator, but to me, it's a whole lot of controls for a whole lot of nothing.  Apart from hair coloring, everyone basically looks the same.  Great graphics, but looking the same.  Besides, gender-locked is not very customizable.

    @Kinky & @iAgro:
    I'm curious if either of you did a refund request or something similar in the past (say, for the pre-orders that were not pre-orders)?  My hunch is, it may be related to a financial "black list" of people who desired a refund or otherwise started a charge-back procedure; heck, maybe all one had to do was fill out a ticket.

  6. Old Roy added a post in a topic Amity - how much time/effort do you spend?   

    A good rule of thumb in MMO's is they are all about colossal wastes of our time.  That is, there really is no incentive to do anything quick or fast; I would posit that the games that do quick and fast die off quick and fast.  The end goal is to keep as many people interested for as long as possible, thus increasing the chances of cash shop purchases.  It's really a basic formula, and Asian companies almost never think outside the box or stray from formula.  Heck, most companies really don't anymore.
    The Amity thing is confusing and time-consuming as implemented, but once you understand it, and get the hang of it, it's just one more thing to do OTHER than hack-and-slash, and this game shines at having other stuff to do.

    Capital S for seconds + bad font = OUCH, my eyes!
    Please change all the capital "S" letters to lower-case "s" letters when used in cool down, cast times, power descriptions, etc.  For example:  5S is really easy to read as 55 in that 8-bit-looking small font the game uses (see example below in the spoiler):
    ...all that room, they couldn't possibly spell out "seconds" - so I'll take 5s over 5S any day.  My poor eyes...

  10. Old Roy added a post in a topic Payment failed   

    No, the support HIDES the submit a new ticket function.  Go to the support section, click the shopping cart icon "Store" then select one of the options (say, "My Transaction Keeps Being Declined") it will then suggest some topics, but below them is the "Question still not answered? Submit a ticket." that will start the new ticket process.
    Did you get the "internal server error" or the immediate "payment method failed" (before you could actually give them the payment info)?  If it's the latter (immediate failure), did you ever put in for a refund or anything like that?  Some are starting to theorize they added all those people to a black list.

    ...and while they are at it, change all the "S" letters to "s" in cooldown / cast times.  5S is really easy to read as 55 in that crappy small font they got:

    Why do people think BDO has the best character creator around?  I don't get it.  I suppose if you want to all, essentially, look alike, then sure.  There are a LOT of options, but they are all VERY LIMITED to what you can actually do.  The most WIDELY varied character creator I've ever used was Champions Online - yeah, it's old and the graphics sucked, but you could do almost ANYTHING there with character creation.  City of Heroes was also VERY good at character customization.  I think BDO and Blade and Soul are just very nice graphics, but very limited in actual customization.

    Amity in Velia - the Horror!
    So I made a new alt, and was doing the "Befriending Clorince" quest.  I had plenty to talk about, and all of them were the "happy face" success, but in the end, it said "No Amity Earned" - what am I doing wrong?  I've done these Amity mini-games before, and earned Amity doing the same things (putting high % people in the circles).
    Did it a few times, all with different (but successful) people, and no amity earned.

    P.S.  Sorry about the snarky title, but I could not resist the movie reference.

    Yes.  I was actually refunded the money, too, after I escalated it from a Dispute to a claim.

  16. Old Roy added a post in a topic Monitor covered in Post-its to show class combos   

    Isn't the answer to your problems already in-game?  MOST of the odd-ball combos are allowed to be placed on the QUICK-BAR (1-9 & 0 keys).  The simple ↓ + LMB or ↑ + RMB, etc. should be intuitive enough to know; adding the shift in for the "power attack" version, also easy to memorize.  The odd-used ones can be assigned to the hot-bar, as 1, 2, 3, and 4 are quite easy to spam... then, if you have a particular move (grapple) and that's "always on the 5 key" for each class that has one, you are beginning to only need to remember the layout.  I.E. my "charge in" power is usually "3" and my aforementioned grab/grapple is usually "5" etc.
    Finally, I use a ROCCAT Tyon mouse, and I just go in-game and map the 9 & 0 hot-bar keys to some of my mouse keys (the backward & forward browsing buttons).  My Corsair K70 RGB keyboard does not have macros, but looks really sweet.

    Technically, you paid "real cash" for both.

  18. Old Roy added a post in a topic Inventory stacking nonsense   

    Just wait until you closely examine WEIGHT of items in this game...  Tell me how a KEY weighs more than a slab of meat... unless that's one big-ass key-to-the-city sized key...
    So between stacking and weight, they have two ways to potentially milk cash out of you.  Yes, it is a cash-grab - but don't act like that is some shameful thing.  They made this game, they put it out there for nearly free (as the B2P likely won't cover server costs down the road) and they did this NOT to entertain us, NOT to make us happy, NOT to get us to like them.  No, they did this to GET AS MUCH OF OUR MONEY AS THEY CAN.  It's called business, and you do not labor for others for free, why should they?  If it's too much or too annoying, people go elsewhere (that's called competition).  I think you know all this, but sometimes a reminder is helpful.

  20. Old Roy added a post in a topic Still cannot buy Daum Cash after 09 March maintenance   

    I even tried using different operating systems, as well as different browsers:  no go.  It is either A) tied to my account, or B) some error on their end.  I'm leaning towards (A) in that digital things either work or don't work, and it clearly is working for some, but others either got put on a list (unlikely) or inadvertently have some sort of flag on their account that is triggering this.
    Maybe there's only 20 or 30 of us with this problem and it's just not in their financial interest to give a crap.

  21. Old Roy added a post in a topic I really love Black Desert Online, but I can't stop feeling it's very unpolished in some aspects.   

    This is only my third KR MMO, but I've noticed a pattern with them, that's for sure.  I don't want to say "cash grab" but I just did.  Regardless, the game is decent, but I do not expect them to make much of any change unless it translates into cash shop sales.  Usually this is done by "breaking" a class or "buffing" another.  Something to push the player base into another character (thus, more cash shop QoL items sold; there's a reason they usually aren't account-wide).
    Still, even knowing this and expecting this, I just try to work around it as I can.  Thankfully, due to Daum's "diligence" in eCommerce, I cannot enter a payment method to buy Daum Cash, or else I might have sunk a few hundred into the cash shop by now.

  22. Old Roy added a post in a topic How to get help?   

    Clarification:  it doesn't show more quests in your quest window, it shows them offered above NPC's heads.  It's like the "Show low-level quest" function in WoW.  WIth it turned off, you never see them.  So turn them all on, and look around where there are NPC's (Velia, for instance).  You'll see many more quests offered with all the filters ON.

  24. Old Roy added a post in a topic Refilling energy costs real money   

    Have you ever calculated the power your system uses?  I suppose if you're rocking dual 32" 4K displays (which can, theoretically top out around 90W+) and you're driving them with a Rasperry Pi (j/k), then you might be correct, but generally speaking, I've never seen the displays use more power for a personal computer.  If you're using a newsroom's Chyron setup to play... well...

  25. Old Roy added a post in a topic Will Black Desert be purchase-able from retail stores?   

    I highly doubt it.  In fact, I see it as going free-to-play in the next six months to a year.  Why?  It's the path of least resistance, development-wise (and publishing-wise).  I don't want it to be F2P, but if I was a betting man...
