Then there is a time and a place. See, when you wear those kinds of revealing clothes in public you are opening yourself up to the public. If you only wished to wear those things to attract a certain someone, well... That's why you'd say, invite them over to dinner, and wear said clothes especially for them and them alone. Please however, the most important thing to remember is that, this is in fact a game, it is not real and your pixels cannot feel physically violated unless you allow them to... Which, unless you are the hardcorest of the hardcore RPers, you can disassociate yourself from your pixels yeah?

I do not agree. Some people should not have to adapt to others inability to be civilized, polite or respectful. One should be able to wear what they wish as long as it's not hurting someone else. So if you see a woman walking in a short skirt and tight top, that does not automatically give you any right to her body, her looks or her person.

And in regards to the "it's just a game", I've heard it before. If you are unable to meet me in my opinion without acting like you have no idea what I'm talking about, only to flame, troll or grief me, then I ask of you to stop. Or, you and your wife, are both incapable of understanding the issue, would make you two a perfect fit for each other though. Gratz.

Now, if it was "just a game" developers wouldn't need to use sex and/or other demeaning content to attract money from a certain type of people. So, if you can see, reality and fantasy comes together in a major marriage. Something, one either deals with, doesn't deal with or wish to change.

To have less sexualized costumes, poses and of features in an online game is not a major change for online gamers. Unless ofc, you need to look at a female char running around in lingerie when killing mobs. There are literally thousands upon thousands of male players who plays the game just fine without. Just as there are thousands of female players who themselves love to run around looking sexy (as a pixel character).

Maybe, most of you can relax a bit and be ok with me having a different opinion than you and being a gamer who wishes the female sexualization for ones, could be a non factor in online games. I promise, you will all survive.

Ya, but that's what I'm talking about, if you're killing at your level I think you should have go through different skill rotations and actually try, like if you get your shield up at the right time you win and if you don't you die.  That makes a game fun. facerolling sausans is just hella boring, it feels like a job at that point.  Some of the most fun I had in this game was trying to kill Mutant Tree Spirits at lvl 50 with a buddy.  It was like our own little duo boss fights, the money and experience efficiency was awful, but we were enjoying ourselves.  So that's what Im looking for out of new content.  

I think people are accustomed in the game to just face tanking and moving through packs of easy mobs.  If i take a break from the game it'll be nice to have Pirates that I know I can go back to and powerlevel to catch up a bit, but for the time being i'm going to keep trying to find things that are hard to kill, and kill that - like other guild leaders.

If we go with that, make it no gem/exp loss because I don't want to play that kind of game where one simple mistake like that throws away 20-30 mins of my time or expensive gems ^-^

Yeah grinding is a chore, BUT, it is a Korean MMO : P Those kind of things are fun too, I agree, simple mini boss fights or w/e

I agree constant grinding / face tanking through mobs gets tedious, that's when I've been stuck at 56.2% for like, a month? 0 motivation, not sure what drive people have to hit 58/59/60. Even if I had 2 screens to watch something while grinding to make time go by faster, I can't be focusing on both at the same time because being distracted and dying to mobs is the last thing I want to do x: I want to hit 57 or 57.5 really bad but I just can't get myself to. There are too many other distractions that come up and make me forget that I wanted to grind, like fun guild events, in-game recruiting, guild missions, messing around (sometimes with other players, shhh). Then when I do decide to grind, I get pushed out by 1 person from a high tier guild, because that's apparently how it works ~ then I go back to actual fun stuff

#f***thisshitimout

haha, you like killing guild leaders too? You'll get along with my GM :D

gold bars

There's no limit effectively to the amount of gold bars you can place on a boat when you take them all off and throw them all back on.  Yes eventually you will reach a limit where u can't take them off and u can't put more on, but that's probably only going to be a problem for your bikinipanda slave.  If you really insist on living on pirate island for weeks at a time and are using the Maid to enable that i would still call it pay for convenience, because weeks of mindlessly grinding pirates without ever leaving to do anything else in game does not sound like 'Winning" to me.

You know some people's sad real lives have to be validated in a game.
You'd think people would enjoy things meant for escapism, but nope, you have people like Zajo crying about "I'm not respected, you're virtually assaulting me!" yet they attack men and then cry victim when people tell them "stfu and get over it.".

I wonder why people like that even play games, only to complain about them.

Detail setting for view distance of NPC’s has been added

  • Setting > Graphics Quality > NPC distant view

Now this is interesting, maybe it's the beginning of a proper view distance control over grass, shadows, trees...not only NPCs. Will surely test this and post some impressions/comments in the tech area...

Doing the math, a 1M gold bar (10G Gold Ingot) weights 8.3 LT (according to bddatabase)

Assuming you have the highest tier / LT wagon (around 1k LT?), you would be able to store 120 1M gold bars. That's a looooooooong time at Pirates.

Even with a mediocre max LT wagon that has 700 LT, that still lets you store 84 1M gold bars.

With a maid that has 50 LT, you can only store 6 1M gold bars. 

Summary: You can grind exactly 20x as long with a wagon (one with 1k LT) than maid, when talking about how many 1M gold bars you can store

You need that loss potential to make it fun man, I mean sausans is effectively no exp loss no gem loss because you cannot die to mobs there if ur 56 with anything over +15.  You would need to walk into a pack of mobs and afk for 5 minutes and you might even still be alive when u got back.  Thats not even a game to me, it would be more fun to play snake on a flip phone.  For sure if you are paying attention to something else go kill 4000 pirates at the same time.  I think we are on the same page generally, but my point is I want game content that I can actually play while needing to pay attention to the game, or else I will die, because that makes it a game that I am playing not buttons that I am clicking while watching a movie, i guess its nice to have the buttons clicking thing as an option too...but don't nerf Valencia...I mean i know that's coming no matter what also, but not yet please.

I understand the topic I brought up is way above certain peoples understanding. I knew that before posting. Your response and many others do not come as a surprise. I do like to point out, that the crying has come from the likes of you. I wished to see less of a certain outfit on female chars and ppl like you hit the roof. Maybe you need to get over it?

And you mentioning escapism? Classic, but I'm sure you fail to see the irony of it.

U keep using word P2W

mds82td.jpg

Selling a game as buy to play, then adding in a subscription via value packs and numerous in game advantages which you can pay for is definitely mis-selling of a product, and if not pay2win is definitely pay2winmuchmuchmuchfaster. Which is basically the exact same thing. Having dropped over 250£ in a few months on the game, I'd say I've definitely paid my way, yet every patch they add in more things which you are basically forced to pay for to stay competitive... In a game which was sold as buy to play with a cosmetic cash shop. You can sit and white knight daum all you want, but the reality is that this model is entirely based on short term profits at the expense of good gameplay, a quality product for their customers, and longevity of the product.

Personally, I would be much more inclined to pay for more things if they were more reasonably priced and entirely cosmetic. League of Legends is a good example of this. I've spent thousands on that game specifically because I respect their model and it's what I want to see in games. Despite the success of that model, MMO publishers are seemingly too blind or too greedy to pursue it. And it always ends the same way, a graveyard of an mmo *glances at archeage*.

Just my opinion, think what you will.

Maybe, most of you can relax a bit and be ok with me having a different opinion than you and being a gamer who wishes the female sexualization for ones, could be a non factor in online games. I promise, you will all survive.

Okay, so... I feel like you have two issues here, one is... That a woman shouldn't be hounded because she wears overly sexualized clothing in public... While at the same time, say that women shouldn't only be given sexualized outfits in videogames. Those two things almost feel like contrary points of view if you asked me. On one hand, you're saying that people should be more accepting of women who wear sexy clothes, while condoning companies for making sexy clothes for women to wear. 

Also, in this very thread where they showed the travelers costume, I made a point to crack wise at the fact that the two costumes are exactly identical in terms of "revealing" besides the fact that the female model has short sleeves instead of long sleeves. That same travelers gear, is not even a pay to wear costume, it is a craftable in game item. So really, if you wanted to take a step back and think it over, you should be praising Daum for their addition of "Moderate" clothing types for people like yourself that don't make them shell out real money to attain. Looking at all the in game female craftables, they are all quite modest if you asked me, even the Jarette armor is quite tame, as are the Delphi knights, and blacksmith attire. Your argument about over sexualization falls rather flat when you take into account that all the free options for specialized clothing are all quite tame, while the "Premium" attire is what you have a problem with.

Also, about overly sexualization on the whole, look at stories of amazons, all female, all incredibly strong, intelligent women who took pride in their sexuality and thrived in it. Was it wrong of those women to be proud of themselves? Because it sure seems like you are incredibly mad that a company is making outfits that allow for female empowerment, and yes I will say that, because there are quite a few female gamers I know personally who absolutely love looking like a badass, sexy, murder machine. Also, before you go trying to accuse me of being one of the many men who faps to his own female characters, I love RPing, and for the life of me, cannot play female characters as it seems to far from "Me" so, I play as male characters only, with the exception of ranger because that's a whole nothing thing of a bet with making a gender bent version of my Main Character.

Nerf chimeras but Valencia drops are still crap compared to sausan's or pirates? So were supposed to grind two places forever? At least with chimeras I could switch it up a bit...

mehhh....no thanks. Time is extremely valuable to me, I'm already behind and that'll just make me get more behind. Being behind isn't remotely fun especially since I want to enjoy / participate in new content, and new content is swarmed with highest / geared players

Yeah at sausans, I was specifically talking about Valencia though (sry, didn't specify). I think we just want slightly different things out of this game ^-^

its ridiculous. the developer and marketing tried so hard to attract people that love immersion, roleplayers and generally the Skyrim audience (this game quotes and copies Skyrim a lot) and than as it would be just another of the sand in the ocean korean developer it cant hold itself to just start adding immersion breaking bullshit to the game.

 

Watches ? Come on. You go exactly the TERA route. if you think that will be a successful route maybe evaluate a bit better how other korean mmo´s fared. for the cheap $ of some sales spike satisfying the needs of the blink-blink crowd you trash all the lore, setting and world you worked on. pityful.

 

edit: i posted a bit down the thread a reply to those pointing out its a "compass" (which is a spin)
