    I've never really been a fan of Asian-themed avatars in games. I suppose I'll work around this by rolling a wizard & inserting every wrinkle I can find.

    As a player who appreciates the aged look of my avatars, I can say good for you. But don't try to evaporate my wrinkles or there will be war.

    Not that I don't agree but this thread = irony. Whining about whining.

    If this were a subscription game, I could understand wanting compensation for lost time. But a B2P game? Not so much.

    I've yet to play ANY MMO that didn't have some issues on launch day. Just sayin.

    Even if what you say is true all he has to do is create a separate account. And what's with the name calling?

    Yeah I think the Russian version was better. I lol at 1:28 when the guy jumped out of the cannon. At least that's the way it looks in slo-mo.

  8. Wizdom added a post in a topic Why do you lose exp dying from pvp?   

    Getting ganked with no chance does not make one a carebear. It's players that enjoy ganking - you know the ones I'm talking about - they want all the advantage on their side & are afraid of a fair fight, that give honest pvp a bad name. At least there's the karma system.
    Reminds me of a stream I was watching the other night. A level 45 guy got ganked by a level 50 guild when he first got to catfish. He revived & attacked their carts. It was so funny. I don't know how it played out but I would have paid to see the look on their face when they found out their carts were destroyed.  Now that's a proper way to retaliate.

    Just think, it's only fanboys at this point. Wait until all the "slighted" people get into the game. Hahaha.

  10. Wizdom added a post in a topic Disappointment after disappointment...   

    It's launch day. A few hours delay is to be expected. If that's all that goes wrong (after the previous fiascoes), then they've done quite well.

  11. Wizdom added a post in a topic Refunds   

    Daum originally denied my refund through Paypal. Their reason was they wanted me to check the compensation package to see if that would change my mind.  After reading their message it doesn't appear to me like they won't refund, just that they wanted me to reconsider. I did however say no, I was not interested in the compensation package (it is rather lame), and I would like a refund, then escalated it to a claim. I'm still waiting at his point. My guess is they'll get to it within the next week, giving me ample time to reflect about playing while I wait. At this point I've lost all the "hype" for the game & have no problem waiting for the refund. If they refund, I'll probably buy the $30 package & check the game out. If not, I'll charge back & move on. In the meantime, I can watch the game on Twitch and be plenty entertained.

    Given this is launch, this is totally within reason. IMO

    This actually makes 4 hours extension total. It was originally 1200 UTC. I suppose mo money mo problems. Best they get fixed before releasing the hounds.

    Personally I love the fact that gankers get theirs in the end. What makes you think you have more right to farm there than anyone else? Your snowflake color is white like the rest of us.

  18. Wizdom added a post in a topic lol the pk ruins this game   

    I was watching a stream last night of a guy who got ganked at Catfish. He revived & went & attacked their carts. It was so funny. I don't know how it played out but I'd have paid to see the gankers running (limping) back to town to get more transport.

  20. Wizdom added a post in a topic Refund Pending   

    I'm also waiting for a refund. My guess is they're not in a hurry since they released the "misunderstanding" compensation information yesterday (check announcements in the forums). They probably hope some people will read the compensation & choose to cancel their refund request. Meanwhile, even those of us who don't have such strict banking restrictions can't play the game, say under a different package purchase, b/c to do so would invalidate the refund. So I'm guessing they will wait until after March 3rd to see if our persistence holds.
    I suppose I could create a separate account with a different credit card but I wouldn't without knowing how they will respond to the refund request.

  21. Wizdom added a post in a topic Any News from Daum about the Explorer s pack problem ?   

    Interesting, and props to Daum for offering up something when they weren't required to. In this case: 5x 1h GM apology T2 & 500 loyalty. Still not enough to withdraw my refund request though. I can get better stuff with the $20 I save in package difference.
    This is my last post about it b/c I sense we're just going to go back & forth. Any number of pages showed that the Explorers pack started on March 1. Hell, even some of their News pages still show it. And some of those pages DON"T show where they made the change about pre-orders.  Also you should give a little understanding to the whole "pre-order" confusion. Most reasonable people would feel like they pre-ordered if they purchased the game prior to regular release date. In fact I'd say that goes without saying. This is the first time I've ever come across a game that canceled pre-orders without at least changing their sales pages to reflect the important dates. 
    But anyway, Happy hunting to you & yours. Be sure to stick them with the pointy end. And may all your loots be legendary.

  22. Wizdom added a post in a topic Any News from Daum about the Explorer s pack problem ?   

    Sometimes "help" comes in the form of just keeping your mouth shut. Ridiculing and trolling those who are upset helps exactly zero. Expecting people to peruse forum pages to learn every possible thing about something before they purchase it is asinine.  The SALES page said the Explorers pack buyers would start playing on March 1st. Never mind about some post buried in the forums stating otherwise. So at the very least, it's UNDERSTANDABLE that a reasonable person would make the mistake of thinking they would get to play on March 1st.  Jumping on these people for making this mistake tells me more about you and those like you than about them & their mistake.

  23. Wizdom added a post in a topic Any News from Daum about the Explorer s pack problem ?   

    Here's what I've gotten out of this so far:
    1. Daum isn't going to automagically let those of us in the pre-order/non-pre-order loop into the game before March the 3rd at 12 UTC. The reason given was that they stopped pre-orders in the first place due to name reservations (apparently they couldn't keep up with the demand). Letting us in would only complicate their problem.
    2. Daum admitted to the fact that their website was confusing and changed said pages accordingly.
    3. Daum has yet to refund my $50. I've asked via a support ticket & started a ticket through Paypal. If they refund it, I will buy the $30 package & try to enjoy the game despite the rocky start.  If they don't, I will charge back & never look back at this game again.
    4. Fanboy nation is alive and well in this forum. Instead of offering help, they'd rather just ridicule & try to one-up each other with insults. Does not bode well for the community. I'm thinking the community will be more like WOW & less like LOTRO in that respect.
    5. Daum's communication problems are enough so that in the future, I will exhaust every avenue before I open my wallet. When you can't trust the print that's plain as day on a sales web page, then you really can't trust at all.

    Let me guess. That info is in another buried thread I was supposed to have read before I purchased the game.

    Well I am currently reading a rather large book, but I'd eventually like to play the game I paid for.  Thanks for taking the time to stop playing the game to troll my thread.
