    When I click the sign up button with Chrome an "Unknown error occurred" message shows right above the sign up button, when I do this with TOR the browser screen just stays at "SENDING..." and nothing happens, if I click on "ROI Gold" again guess what - NOTHING HAPPENS... Maybe now you will tell me that my account is created, but the screen is messing with me? Well guess what - I checked my email and there is nothing. Well maybe still my account is created and I must check that with the Nexon Launcher which I downloaded from the site or with my Riders of Icarus shortcut from steam - well guess what I DID THAT TOO and NO there is not account with that name. By the way as I am writing all of that, ~15 minutes passed since I tried to create an account with TOR(which is mozilla firefox bases I KNOW) and the screen still stays at "SENDING...". So yea maybe I'm dumb as f*ck and this guy who can't get in the game too is crazy... I have made a ticket about it on the site too and so far there is no answer... I even disabled my antivirus and tried again and still the same old story repeats... So stop blaming my PC, Windows, Browser or me - I told you that I'm not the casual noob "When I click the sign up button with Chrome an "Unknown error occurred" message shows right above the sign up button" When you click on the sign up button a pop up appears Riders of Icarus Gold. If you have an unknown error occured and the pop up doesnt appear how is it not a browser problem lol. My Chrome work perfectly here and i can create 100 accounts if i wanted to. Why can't you ? This is website not a game. Why are you using TOR ? Do you go on the darknet often ? It's funny that you don't want me to blame your PC or You when it's clear that you have problems with it lol. "I click there and i have an error" When it's only a freaking button on a website that should work 100% no problem. It's obvious for everyone that you have a problem. I guess you're the only one who thinks that this have anything to do with the game lol. You are in denial or something. "ITS NOT MY PC BUT WHEN I CLICK THERE I HAVE AN ERROR". So if it's not your PC what is it then ? Are you gonna tell me the game is what makes you not being able to create an account on nexon website ? As a programmer it's pretty clear that something is blocking you from sending the form and on chrome something is making you not being able to see the pop up to Buy Riders of Icarus Gold. Please tell me it's not your PC again.

    Gw2 hasn't quite been living up to it's "friendliest community" reputation of old lately, IMO. I haven't really hit too many trolls and such in BNS, though. The worst are bots and AFKs that leech off of dungeon parties, given that there isn't a vote kick system in BnS. BnS is much more spammer and bot infested than Gw2, but f2p so that's normal. Some people are a bit elitiest about AP (Attack power, not Achievement Points which is what you'd think coming from Gw2) for their dungeon groups, but that should be nothing new to you if you remember the Zerker Melee only trend in Gw2's party finder. The servers are still separated so they have a bit more community to them than in Gw2's megaserver shuffling. You might get to know certain players you run into frequently, though "Cross-server" dungeons let you play with people on other servers and while there is the occasional issue here and there, it's a pretty excellent system overall. Works better than Gw2's party finder. PvP is primarily balanced around 1v1. Even the 3v3 team PvP is actually a tag team format. You get 5 second assists where you can jump in to gang up on someone but it's NOTHING like Gw2's format. Classes are mostly pretty balanced. Every single class is OP except the one you play as, as some of us like to say. Most issues where you perceive a class as overpowered are mostly skill/learning issues, but there ARE some bad matchups where there are specific disadvantages. Some are worse than others. (Warlock has that problem the worst against Forcemasters and Assasins, just to throw that out there if you're considering that class in particular) Also to throw this out there, Summoner gets as much salt as the AI builds in Gw2, when those builds were actually good. Remember when Turret Engies were actually good and total monsters at holding points? That's about how much salt summoner gets. There is nothing like WvW. Faction content like Soulstone planes might sound thematically similar, but it isn't. Large scale fights actually kind of suck. Again, 1v1 focused game. Keep in mind there is no target limit. If there's 40 people standing on a spot you smack with an AOE or cleave, you're gonna hit those 40 players. BnS is much more linear than Gw2, with far less content and quest variety. Nothing interesting to do besides fight, but the combat system is amazing so it's playing to it's strength there. There is no gear choice. You get the literal best weapon at the start and you keep upgrading it. In practical terms, there's no build variety in this game in terms of equipment. All of that comes from which skill trees you choose to upgrade. (Which you can respec at any time like Gw2 masteries and skills) Towards late game, upgrading said equipment becomes very grindy and expensive. Imagine if legendary weapons in Gw2 were basically required for endgame dungeons instead of just being flashy and every single person in the game was bitterly fighting over the mats; and T6 mats climbed 60-80 silver a piece when you still need full stacks of them to make your weapon. That's what soulstones are in BnS. (BnS gold is currently a little less inflated and harder to earn than Gw2 gold. So considering 30-40 BnS silver to be like 60-ish Gw2 silver but I'm totally guessing a conversion rate out of nothing) Tags on most mobs are claimed by first to get a hit in. Kills are not shared unless in a party. Field bosses are an exception, but you must contribute at least 1% of the total DPS to get loot. This is harder than it sounds on a few specific bosses that get really crowded. Imagine in Gw2 if you had to do at least 1% damage to The Shatterer or Tequatl while 200 other people are trying to DPS him too. That's what harvest square during peak times is like. For PvE party class composition is just short of irrelevant. If you're going for an "Optimal" party you might want one or two (But no more than two) warlocks for their special soulburn buff, someone who can tank if needed (ideally a Kung Fu Master or Blade Master but basically any classes but Warlock can pull off being a tank in some capacity when speced for it) And then whoever can bring the DPS. Not too different from Gw2 in that regard but even less class specific roles and functions. This game is NOT alt friendly at all. No shared storage. 99% of untradable drops are character bound rather than account bound. (This really sucks for outfit drops) Speaking of outfits, there is no dye system or anything. Only customizeable outfit is the clan uniform system. Basically, if you like the feel of BnS's combat system and the way Arena PvP is, then you'll find enough to like about the game, because those are the main two crowning strong points. Combat is almost fighting game like, with combos and animation cancels and such. If you want random fun side activities, minigames, or roleplay-friendly features and such, then there isn't much for that here. - See more at: http://www.blade-soul.com/news/blade-and-soul-vs-guild-wars-2#sthash.PxEboFou.dpuf

    At some point I had a major break down with my PC so I decided to change mostly everything about it. These are the things that I bought; Fans: 4 Noctua NF-F12PWM 120 mmGPU: Gigabyte GTX 960 4GB CPU: Intel Core i5 4690K (not OC)Moba: Gigabyte Z97X-Gaming 5RAM: 8GB Crucial Ballistix Sport XT I will also buy an Samsung SAM 850 250GB SSD, Corsair 650-750 PSU and Hyper 212 Evo CPU cooler. You don't need anything more than this game (CPU will have to be OCed of course) and it is a perfectly fine for general gaming right now in high settings, whether it is online or not. Always avoid AMD products but that is not the point of this thread so lets talk about the game itself. Story Blade & Soul might as well have one of the best stories in gaming if you read it in a book but when it comes to how it said in the game, it is absolutely a passionless, Western version of "good vs bad", designed for the lowest common denominator. There is no moral ambiguity nor excitement. Things happen and appear in every single anti-climatic fashion; you talk to an NPC, you enter a specific area or a building and a cut-scene appears. There is no build-up or any immersion whatsoever; there is no mystery with the lore because you can pretty much cap in 2-3 days so all the places you have visited and the NPCs you talked to will become easily forgettable. In that respect, you cannot invest emotionally into Blade And Soul Gold. You might as well skip it as a whole and no one will criticize you for missing a grand story. Lastly, we are still not aware though how many changes were done, how much they butchered it in comparison with the original version. PVE You know these MMOrpgs where PvP is a tiny fraction of the core game? That is exactly how it is in this game. On top of that Dungeons & Raids are extremely uninspiring, dull and super ugly, as if someone did a perfect paint-job. Remember the first cave you entered for the first time? Well the game will not stop reminding you of that. It is that bad. PvP If you do not like Arena, you might as well "fuck off" to another MMOrpg. As simple as that. This game is all about 1v1s and if someone tells you otherwise, he is a fanboy drone. The system is designed to promote Rock-Paper-Scissors so if you dreamed of balance or outplaying your opponent keep dreaming and keep walking. Open-World PvP The only reason aka Instanced-PvP (it is restricted to an area and an island) exists is to intervene with PvE progress as you need to run dailies and what not to upgrade further your gear/weapon. If you came here expecting open-world PvP like in Aion, Lineage and Black Desert with sieges and ganking, tactics and element of surprise, depth and complexity, you might as well call it a day. Extra Loading - It is like this game was build on Lego. Everything you do has a fucking loading screen multiple times, over and over again Blade & Soul Items. The first thing you should do before even playing the game is to get an SSD. In-game Gates - What the actual fuck.Customization (keybindings, add-ons, UI scaling) - Anti-player choice and non-existent.
