Topic: Wartune / Any One Else thinks they have ruined this game?

I wouldn’t mind Lag… erm Cloud City so much if they hadn’t taken away the option of using the Bounties, Mystery Shop, Hall of Heroes etc. out of our own city. Incorporating all the Sylph stuff into a new area is fine, but they went too far.

They actually hurt their own profits as far as the Mystery Shop goes, I’m sure I’m not the only one who will be checking for items far less often now.

Also, I hope taking out the middle column was a bug. What is the point of that? Please put back VIP wheel spin all button as well.

Other than that, I like the Sylph system more than I thought I would. Don’t like the grinding involved in getting new sylphs, but hey, that’s optional and at least there’s a way to get new sylphs without spending any money. Extra techs and VIP chests is great.

P.S. I turned the music on and the Cloud City music is a blatant ripoff of the Elder Scrolls games. This is not the first time they have stolen music tracks before… not too many people have played the Ys series, but come on, everyone knows Skyrim, couldn’t you have stolen from something a little less obvious like before? (Although this track sounds more to me like the Morrowwind version). Gotta love the Chinese and their respect for copyright laws. :p

Topic: Wartune / No critical hits?

Don’t use Ruthlessness either. Use Crit, Determination, PATK, Goddess Blessing, then whatever your best defensive astrals are like MDEF, HP etc

Edit: For clarity, worldchamp deleted where he said he was using Ruthlessness.

Topic: Wartune / [Comp Pack] Tower Troubles

This was really a no-win situation for both R2 and the players from the beginning when the bug wasn’t fixed promptly. The only way for them to compensate for the lost xp is to hand out an extreme number of xp books (which has its own problems) or to go into people’s accounts directly and add xp. How do you even begin to start deciding how much to give everyone? Such a mess.

It’s the whole ticket system that is the source of the problem. The people responding to these clearly do not have an understanding of the game necessary to do their jobs. I have sent in tickets on the lag in level 12 of the guild altar, which many of us have been familiar with for a very long time. I got a response back to “close other programs” like the problem was on my end. Further conversation went nowhere. They just don’t get it.

My thanks go out to all the players who sent tickets and posted in forums, and the mods who helped bring our concerns to light. I appreciate everyone’s effort. To R2’s customer service people though… you need a lot more training, guys.

Right, the Power Up Rewards Pro version of K+ is a “complimentary” version.
While you do get the same perks, the 50 kreds are not included in the deal.

Ah, okay, thanks! I did renew my Pro account – I’ll just give it some more time to process.
Thanks again for the feedback!

Edit: There it is, I have it now.

Yep, they’ve been linked since that program started.

I really appreciate the replies, by the way.

Edit: Wait, there’s a different link for the free one? I’ll check it out…

Thanks! =)

You would need a PowerUp Reward Pro account.

I do, the $15 one.

Topic: Dream World / Official Bug Reports Thread (new)

Someone in chat ran across this trivia question:
What controversial madonna song’s video was banned by mtv in 1989? (Hint: l___ a v_____)

The answer is incorrect – the song should be “Like a Prayer.” Like a Virgin was a 1984 song that had a less controversial video behind it. Like a Prayer had burning crosses and Madonna making out with a black saint-figure that came to life in church. Yeah, that turned some heads.

Topic: General Gaming / Misanthrope Game Reviews: Sacred Seasons

This review is 100% dead-on. Although I gave it three stars for effort, the gameplay is utterly craptastic. It’s so bad that I started to write out a point-by-point post about why it needs so much work and then said screw it, why bother. I wasted enough time with this game as it is, and the OP was dead on.

I will add one more gripe though, it’s true that some classes need balancing but that’s mainly because only Strength (and to a smaller degree Speed) mean anything. All classes are the same outside of those stats. There is zero character customization after selecting your class – there is no stat allocation or skill selection. All classes can use all weapons and armor… wait a second…

Ok fine, second thing: There’s only a handful of weapons to acquire in the entire game and anyone can use them. There basically is no armor or other equipment to equip at all, Sacred’s “armor” is actually a few pieces of clothing which cost real money to buy. What the heck?

This is a major reason why Sacred Seasons has almost no hook at all. Listen devs, this shell of a game might have actually worked to some rudimentary degree but you forgot the one basic principle behind getting people to play this type of game: the dangling carrot. There is none. There’s no stuff dropping to power up your character. There’s no abilities or stats to customize when levelling it up. Without these carrots dangling in front of people to encourage them to level, your customer retention is going to be extremely low.
