When is the cp cap going to be raised and other softcaps removed like what was done to combat level?

Why is the patches keep ending later with patches starting later then they normally do?, if this was something like node war time it would be fixed in a week.

Effects that're added to the map without being an actual part of the map sadly has a much bigger negative effect on performance than they would if they were there permanently. Was the case with the snow, with the cherry blossoms, with every single event that adds on to the map. It's a pity, but for this reason I think most of us would rather they went away.

oh fooey :(

An hour+ from this message being on the launcher to this post going up?

Can you really not coordinate the posting of these things slightly better? It's every damned week.

EDIT:

Please for the love of god, fix the damned mail you sent about Flonder Goose that has an invisible item in it making it un-deletable. Mails are already a horrible delivery for this kind of message (cause of the way the special deals market works), don't make it more annoying.

That's the whole point. Making it so that mail cannot be deleted prevents players from "accidentally" deleting it and then yelling at Kakao for deleting an item without giving notice.

Knock it off with the constant Kamasylvia hype plz, or go look on a Game map and realize that it's a tiny little pocket zone only designed to provide "content" to 0.05% of the playerbase. Part-1 all by itself is USELESS to almost everyone without the other parts that open a real city and the coasline

Let's get some class balance already, tiring to have a certain few classes dominating the sieges and nodewars.

being on of those classes life must be hard :thinking:

Silver work outfit aren't tailorable due to the possibility of enhancing them, tailor a professional work outfit with them and you can stack the buff.

Quick nota: there's no other way to obtain the farmer outfit than the one time task afaik, making it the only work outfit not stackable with its silver version on all your chars.

  • Sticker UI that can drag some UI out of the game screen will be added.

Basically, parts of the UI will act as new window process, so you can see it outside of exe window, that's how I understood it at least.

Would be good if there was an UI element to show distance to target for my semi-afk trade runs.

Will be very good for afk horse trainers as you'll have a window with mount current lvl and skill even out of game to see progress.

I loved the cherryblossoms but noticed a big improvement in game-performance after they were removed. Still I'd hate to lose all the pretty special effects. Can't these be implemented in another way so as not to slow down the game this much? Isn't there any technical solution to this?
