blade and soul: the joys of leveling an alt
Just ran Naryu Lab for my new toon for the soul shield. There were a couple of alts in the party (low levels with very good gear). Then of course, some idiot started calling us "noobs", when my new toon is level 49 with 421AP (literally almost the max you can have since any higher gear requires level 50, average AP for pre-50 is more like 350ish). The idiot was level 50 HM 5 with only 450AP and same crit chance as me, a level 49. Lmao. And of course, some HM11 complaining he's "carrying 5 players" and "this sucks".
This is exactly the type of trash player with no brain that makes it painful to level an alt, or even for new players. They're obviously noobs (or in the HM11's case, an elitist who thinks a level 45 dungeon should only be available to HM11's with 700AP) themselves, yet the only thing their eyes look at is that huge number on the profile screen. Higher number = not noob, lower number = noob, that's their simple logic to make themselves feel better.
I don't know why they made it so you can inspect other players fully in the NA servers. I mean the player base here isn't exactly what you would call "mature" or "friendly" is it? On the contrary they should enable that in the CN servers, and disable it here. That huge AP number on the profile automatically puts a label on alts or new toons as "noobs" in the eyes of simpletons like the ones described above and gives them excuses to give us a bad time.
Instead of displaying AP so prominently, why not make it more subtle and have these more useful information instead?
Name and level of all characters on the account
How many times you ran this dungeon, sum of all characters on account. Success/failure rate of said dungeon
Character and account age (granted older age doesn't mean more experienced, but at least it's an indicator most of the time)
And while you're at it, fix the damn profile photo not showing up half the time! I mean right now there might as well be no profile photo because it just shows as broken link or "take a photo" half the time
Six Reasons Why Blade And Soul Sucks
So there, 6 reasons for my absolute disgust with the product thus far. Of course there are redeemable qualities but these need to be stated!
Blade and Soul: new content arrives August 24th
New content arrives August 24th this is the information I gleaned from the live stream. It didn't seem like any new story content will be on the 24th besides the Desolate Tomb.
How to Avoid Getting Ban for Buying Blade and Soul Gold
R4PG.com can buy what you need from the Market Board then trade the items. This way is slower than other delivery ways, but as long as you feel safe, we would do this for you! This trade method is the safest delivery way, but it will take more time to finish this whole process.
Blade And Soul SSP Changes
I know a lot of players have issues with soul stone plains, to be honest, I am one of them, i hate SSP's current setup but the answer I am hearing is not an answer, its a problem
Why wouldn't Ncsoft want most people at True Scorpion sooner?
I know of only 4 people that have attempted to duo-Asura's dungeon, one of the groups succeeded while he other gave up.
