    Made a new character, got it perfectly the way I wanted it to look, started the game. Looks COMPLETELY different than what I made. Takes 24 hours to delete it and make a new... SOOO now I'm stuck with this default character.

    awww. come on, be nice.
    Everyone else was nice.
    I was at +13 trying to get to +14. Failed 57 different times before I got it.
    I don't know what you're saying about math. but it's all good. I'll come back to BDO at a later time. Needs more updates first.

    Yea, I know. I tried to use my +49 Fail Stacks on taking a +1 Ring of Good Deeds to +2, but failed, that got me to +50 Fail Stacks.
    I 100% understand the logic behind that, but I wanted a +15 weapon more than I was worried about Accessories at the time.
    Yea, and the Fail Stacks aren't the only reason I'm not spending money on the game, it's more of the other things than it is the Fail Stacks. I know the Failing is a MAJOR part of the game, but it did send me over the edge to not spend another $60 on the game.
    Nice. yea I should have forced it twiced. would have been cheaper....
    Sad thing is, I spent over 35Million on the weapon and on the Market Place there are Blue +15 Yurias I could have bought for 32Million.... So yea.
    In the end I decided to spend that $60 on a new video game. So I'll be playing that for a while, instead of BDO. That's just money lost from me, probably many others having the same thoughts.
     
    I'll be waiting for FPS Optimization and for Achievement Combat Skill Points to be addressed before I come back to the game. GL HF everyone.

    Yea, the Fail Stacks thing is annoying, and I could look past it if other things weren't also getting on my nerves. But today those +57 sent me over the edge with issues I was already having with the game.
    Based on other Charts I was suppose to have a %20 chance to succeed 37 different times. So RNG just back handed me.

    Game Frustrations - Why I didn't spend another $60 on the game.
    If I didn't get +57 Fail Stacks before I went from +13 to +14, if I wasn't completely frustrated at the Achievement Combat Skill Points, and if I wasn't having FPS issues for no apparent reason... I would have already spent another $60 on BDO...
    I wanted to buy 3 pets (One of each type), Glasses (Faster Knowledge), Headpiece (Higher Quality Knowledge), Full Skill Reset, and Weight Limit Increase (+150wt). Comes out to $60 USD, but I couldn't convince myself to spend that money on a game that frustrates me more than I find enjoyment out of it.

    Vsync Forced On - Windowed & Windowed Fullscreen
    Vsync function is ruining peoples FPS.
    I can force it off in my Control Panel, but this only effects Fullscreen Mode. It DOES NOT effect Windowed or Windowed Fullscreen Mode.
    For some reason Windowed & Fullscreen Windowed are forced to run with Vsync. This is causing MAJOR FPS issues.
    If a rig can only run the game at ~45 FPS, the Vsync will jump your FPS from ~45 to 30 over and over again. Causing slowdowns and stuttering.
    The GPU can run the game at ~45 FPS, but because the Vsync is trying to give you "smooth" gameplay it's forcing it to go down to 30 FPS. Whenever the Vsync is fighting with the GPU's capabilities this is causing all of the stuttering and slowdowns for MANY peoples rigs.
    If we could FORCE OFF Vsync, then the issue would be solved.

    Softcap will eventually feel like a hardcap, where it would take you a week or more to gain even 1 point. So when you finally reach that point of the softcap you're going to wish you had 26 points.
    I think the Devs really need to address this issue.
    Purchasing a whole new copy of the game is the only way to get these points... and it's just bad design.

    For every 1 point you grind, just know. You could have 26 more.

    I know the quest can be done on every character.
    You're missing the point that the softcap is 500, so while you can get those 26 points, it's going to take you a lot of grinding to achieve.
    Example:
    Leveling from 499 to 500 requires 5,000xp (not the real value).
    Now leveling from 500 to 501 requires 50,000xp (not the real value).
    And then leveling from 501 to 502 requires 100,000xp (not the real value).
    This is how the sofcap works, so it will take you an increasingly longer amount of time every time you level up. Making those 26 points VERY hard to achieve.
    So no, you cant grind that out in 1 day.

    " 560 skill points (Quests + Achievements) "
    It's ok if you don't get it, just know that you are 26 Combat Skill Points short on every alt character you ever make. Including the new released characters when they come out. Making your build impossible to be optimal without buying a whole new account.

    Soft cap is 500.
    So say you are leveling up your skill points and you reach the 500. now try to level up a skill point 1 more time, and it will take you a very long time. getting to 501 would take you... idk how long. but what if I told you I could just give you 26 points after you reach the soft cap. now you can have an upwards of 560 skill points (quests + Achievements) which you can only get on one character.
    It's a pretty big deal.

    Ah, great link! So the Achievement Combat Skill Points have nothing to do with the softcap, that's a good start.
    But now there is still the problem of... You can only get those 26 points on 1 single character per account.
    I think to remedy this, they just need to make it where all you characters get those extra 26 points.
    Whenever you make a new character, or when BDO releases new characters and you create one of them, they will not have those extra 26 points.
    We can hope and pray something will be done about it, easiest way is to make sure this information stays relevant and people talk about it.

    Yup. As far as I know, you can only get an Achievement once, and you can only accept the rewards on 1 character.
    The Combat Skill Points are received when you say "Accept" on the Achievement Reward.  It doesn't just give it to you when you reach it, you have to accept the reward.
    So in theory, you can reach the softcap, and then accept the rewards, making you go over the softcap EZ PZ.

    Thanks for your input, you summed up all the issues of the Achievement Combat Skill Points for me.
    New character comes out, you want to change your main "combat" character to that new character, but you are lacking Combat Skill Points unless you buy a whole new account.
