  1. I spent so much time doing this, I spent more time than any of you doing this remember that. This has been my life for 2.5 years non-stop. Dealing with everyones bullshit, this isn't me being depressed or having a bad day this is my life we're talking about. You all have a reason and a right to be skeptical as I am not being totally clear but honestly this is not a good time for me and I don't know if I will ever return to this again.

    NosTale - End of an Era

    As requested by many players, VGN Points for all purchases from 4th September 2019 to today have been returned to your accounts. You can use these points on other VGN Games.
  3. It's nothing related to GF, that I can assure you. I wish I could tell you but you all know what I am like about my personal life but honestly you would all understand why I am stepping away. To be fair, some of you have taken it with great understanding the rest of you are showing your true colors.
  4. Everyone is free to a refund, this was not planned and I had every intention to continue the server as normal. This news has been sat with me for 2 months and I've continued but I just cannot go on any further. So please... stop seeing it that way.
  5. Hey all, It's been 2 and a half years of hard work and great moments with NosTale Vendetta. We've had some great times together and I am proud to have hosted this game here on VGN. The news I am about to give you all does not come without great regret and it breaks my heart. Due to some recent news in my life this last month it aches me to say that I must step down and shut down the NosTale project here at VGN. I cannot simply pass the torch or responsibility of NosTale onto anyone for many reasons. With me stepping down the network will still go on, Eden Eternal is ran by @Jordan and Scarlet Blade is ran by @Vivi these projects will not be affected at all. I cannot go into great details about what is going on as I like to keep my life private. I thought I could just continue as normal but to be honest I am kidding myself. I have been working solid on a new patch for a while now so this hasn't came without great thought. I want to thank the NosTale support team especially, it's been a pleasure working with every single one of you. I am very very sorry to everyone, I know this news comes with great pain and I assume you all will be very angry towards me. I only ask that you look to the fun we've had and understand all good things must come to an end. Thank you for your time with us.
  6. We've tried single item purchases in the past, it didn't work. We deliver Mystery Boxes in a very fair environment even so towards the rates and the 100% guaranteed item. You can easily trade the item with someone else if you haven't got it thus creating community interaction. So I really disagree with what you're saying and I can say it won't happen. The issue is, the same people on the PC gaming market complain about spending $20 on a costume are the same people who push $200+ a week on some crappy mobile game. PC gamers are just too used to getting their own way and they wonder why all developers are pushing into the mobile market now...

    Server 2

    GF keep refreshing their servers, look how dead they are.

    Server 2

    You can catch up in no time on our current one so why ask for server 2? So you can feel like a special snowflake for a week before people catch up?
  9. 50kk is not a lot of gold and can be farmed in less time it takes to expect a response from us in threads like this.
  10. I see, well to be fair I don't see us opening a new server. We don't want to jeopardize our existing server for what may appear to be a one off hype that dies off. Right now Jordan is already very busy so increasing his work load only affects our current projects even more. What we can do is create some future content that involves Normal Classes only but again that is up to Jordan and his plans. We did release Normal Class TW and no one seemed to bother with it after a while.
  11. Everything you're saying here though are things Jordan has produced? The game beyond level 95 is it's own game exactly what you're asking for. Unless I'm mistaken I really don't understand what you're asking for?
  12. I need to see the numbers before I decide on what I believe is a bad idea. Returning to a forum on possible fake accounts is not a way to show numbers, why don't you and everyone download our game and come play it. Show us you want to support VGN Network and we will consider adding it. This isn't a means of me trying to gain players we have a lot already, but if we see a rise big enough to prove this is what you really want and you truly want to support our network, then it's a better chance than a forum poll I can assure you that. But hopping ship to a bad server is not a good sign. It shows where your loyalty stands and to be fair it's a selfish thing to ask us to do all the work so you can hop, skip and jump between so easily.
  13. I'd like to point out that the new server's approach wasn't to create a level 55 "classic" server at all. Their approach is based on their limitations, they have very dated and broken files (hence all the bugs). It's not a matter of them doing something right, it's a matter of them being limited to what they have and I can assure you they would have launched with awakened classes if they could. I'd also like to add that the new servers first approach was to take all of our custom content and open donations. This to me is the actions of a very lazy and bad dev, this isn't a case of someone who knows what they're doing and more like someone who wants a quick buck. So expect a lot of bad monetary decisions from their end that will hurt your "classic" experience. If anyone remembers, our launch of Eden was almost 2 months before we asked for a cent from you all. You forget a lot of the people who joined their new server were people who either quit our server and went back to official or quit our server because they were ran off by community (and our) actions. It baffles me why people think of us as a bad network when all we've done is provide content for the last 4 years for this game. We've done everything we can to keep this game alive and hey it's all good I understand nostalgia is key to old games like this. But to ask us to just wipe off 4 years of our work for a 5 minute buzz isn't really optional. Now I am not saying we cannot do a classic server because we can, we have the ability and know this game very well. Some of you right now I see in this thread are people kissing the ass of the dev on their discord or shit talking Jordan and his work so your opinion is very discredited right now (as well as the fact a lot of people who voted "yes" are new and multi accounts/vpn). We have a network that boasts 10 years, we made the mistake of creating a classic server before with another game and guess where that is? Or in fact where the modern server is? So, it's not a case of if we can, it's more a case of if we will and right now it doesn't feel worth it. That's not me saying no, I am just saying I need to see why it's worth it and a few fake accounts voting on a poll isn't enough. PS: Remember Play Eden.
  14. I wouldn't worry so much about the "balance" changes being applied. There is probably a more broad idea, so over-reacting right now when it's in an infant stage isn't the way to go about it. NOTE: This is why we don't release any information from any patches we're working on without it being vague. The whole picture is never seen until launch and then it just creates a bad vibe towards the patch release.
  15. Hope your recovery goes fine and wish you all the best.

    Patch v40

    General Changes: - The following stat has had a rework: - "Sales" type items will now give 80% of the gold when sold to an NPC. - Amulet of Greed has been made tradeable. In the future other Event related Trophies will be made tradeable. NOTE: You will not gain the Title by trading this item, it is only obtained when gaining the item from the Raidbox. - Added "Farm Claim" item to the game. New item being added to the Mystery Box common item pool. This item can be used to mark a Raidbox as "Farmed" which, will allow you to reap the benefits of the Amulet of Greed stats further. NOTE: The same rules apply, if you've marked an item as Farmed use it soon as you've done it as trading, dropping, relogging etc will remove the flag. - Whenever the new Amulet of Greed gifts you an extra item from a Raidbox an effect will appear. - Modified the text from when you gain an extra item from a Raidbox. - Added "Trophy" category in the Equipment category of NosBazaar. - Slightly increased the Minor Trophy rate when you have Amulet of Greed equipped. - Added Spiky Hair Box to the game. NosMall Changes: - Updated Mystery Box common items: NOTE: The addition of items will not affect Mystery Box rates at all. - Added Cuarry Bank Debit Card. Bug Fixes: - Fixed Titles that went missing. - Fixed a bug where if you dropped an item the "You Farmed" status would remain on the item.
  17. "Sale Items" is an item type so all items that are a "Sale Item" were effected. It didn't need a full detailed explanation when it's a group of items that is defined to this type (even says it below the name of the item).
  18. Bad translation? Ask Entwell/Gameforge it's THEIR stat....
  19. I can agree this change was slightly harsh and wasn't well thought through. Our motives were to stop the Spider Eye trades so maybe we will go back to just limiting certain items there is a patch tomorrow to fix that stat and a couple other issues so who knows? That being said though, when you use the term "all players" yes you're right it does affect a lot of players. When I look at a situation I want to see the whole picture and I am very good at analyzing the entire picture so for example... 2 weeks ago I posed as a "hacker" in-game. I claimed I had a "gold hack" and I also claimed I knew how to change your special options in Hero Equipment (I basically made maxed out weapons and showed them off). Now I aint gonna call people out but put it this way, out of the people who knew how many do you think didn't want the hack? Didn't want the gold and infact tried to get me on their Discord to start a "purchase system" together to make us rich? Bare in mind these are some of the TOP TOP players in-game wasn't just random people, these are people claimed to not be associated with gold buying or selling YET wanted to do this. Put it this way... 100% of the people I came into contact with claimed to want to be a part of my scheme not one person denied it or reported me to a GS. So when you say "all players are affected" why are those statistics not a concern for me? I can recall the Nefasto case, one specific player was in the Chatbox begging me to put the server back online whilst sat talking to Nefasto asking for the hack. This same player using the same phrases haselnus233 was using (you don't care or listen to us) but yet was in conversation with Nefasto. When I am asked to care for you guys, this is a one way street because in fairness no one cares about me or this server and that's fine but you cannot ask for me to be the only one giving here. As for improving VGN Sales if we Paygate something to make VGN more worth it we'd be money oriented fucks so it's hard for us to create ideas to monetize and that takes a lot of planning and hard work (which we're trying to do btw). I want to reiterate what I am saying btw, I do care about everyone and I know some innocent people are threw into this if not a lot but everyone must understand I am trying my best to make this game as clean as I can but everyone has to stop supporting them or decisions like this will continue coming (and no this is not me punishing you).
  20. You're playing a video game.... you're wasting time anyways.
  21. No I just made it up so I can fuck everyone over because you know that's logical explanation right?
  22. Are you really going that route? You really wanna go down that road? Look back at what you're saying because this aint a one way street the way you're seeing it right now. So me doing this one change is me not caring about players or not listening to you? Playing the victim every time and then using manipulative tactics, this describes the 2019 gamer of today. We've spent 3-4 weeks on this event probably more planning it yet, this is the action of people who don't care about their playerbase. How many changes have we done that was us listening to players? You forget about Bash NPC in-game? The lack of pay gates YET you say we care only about those players.... Every single time something you disagree on it goes back to the same manipulative post of "You don't care, You don't listen". Now I admit, the change was probably a bit too harsh and we were already discussing changing it (slightly) but you know... think I'll leave it.
  23. I think you need to stop trying to cause problems that's what I really think. If you think it's me punishing you all then you really are very self absorbed. The idea of the Sale Items also applying the sell tax is based on many things. One of the main factors being gold sellers/buyers using Spider King's Eyes to trade their gold. I'd also appreciate it if you all stop being a bit dramatic, every single time a change you all don't agree you kick and scratch like children. You can always go back to Gameforge's Graveyard servers or plain text password emulator servers no one is making you stay here, but stop trying to dictate our changes when it doesn't work for you. Now maybe, we were a tad bit harsh on this change but to assume it's because of inpatience? Deluded.
  24. You're acting rather entitled.
  25. So yeah... it's actually pretty shit. I will review this stat and re-invent it, sorry about this I was sure it played a bigger role, guess I was wrong.
