Hi Everyone,

Super excited to be working on the patch! Banana and I have a lot of ideas, but we wanted to see if any of you had something on your mind you would like to be in game.

Feel free to post below about anything. Even a type of quest you would like.

  • Your suggestions will be reviewed and discussed among the GS team, but we will be keeping it a surprise for release.

Some things for you to help start off: 

  • Do you have a favorite NPC or mob, which ones? 
  • Is there a specific type of quest you like? Collection, escort, ect. 
  • What should we do to help new players? I'm currently working on good free gear per cap.
  • If we were to do more Horde style spawns (zombie/evergreen), how should we incorporate it to the new pvp map?
  • How many bosses should the map have?
  • Kill off Bikini in the game storyline

***** NOT DISCUSSING SKILLS YET

There one idea I have for new pvp map is have collection dailies and other quest like pvp ones that give each faction points and when reach like let say 100 (could be alot more) bosses spawn for that faction. Have this idea cause it would keep players more active and have work towards bosses. 

With new player maybe make team dungeons for low cap more rewarding and worth doing so they have change to see older dungeons and learn how use there classes.

Also having dailies for the bosses with good reward.

Oh also could do use my faction point system for the horde style event too by same way as spawning bosses.

Will post more if can think of it.

1. ) Favorite NPC(s) for me would either be Nayan and Yuna. Would love to see them come to this level cap.

2. ) I liked the protection/attack quests that Ellis had where you had to go to the opposing faction's side to attack their machine thingies outside of base or would have to protect your own for a certain amount of time. Maybe even doing something like Ellis and Caergate have and have a crate that we have to protect or try to steal for good items. If we are still using Amara, maybe we could have it right next to bases where Guards are not around so players can battle for it without 1 shot.


3. ) What would help new players is having new players around to do quests with them. I think more promotion of this game would help. I have the Facebook Page and post in game content. Would love to take in submissions such as art or videos of PvP or even  PvE from players so people who are curious to play can have a glimpse of what the game is like. What scares people away is how the game was advertised to be overly sexual, but I am sure if they saw the actual content in the game, they could have a different view. I will be willing to start Facebook events where prizes can be given out if more involvement from the community now happens. 

I would say maybe instead of having unenhanced bikes in the Starter package in event tab, maybe we can add a 30 day Sapphire Cruiser that we gave out during Halloween event where it's already fully enhanced to the basic speed of 160, so new players can have a small taste of what it's like to have a decent speed bike for some time. I would also say, we could maybe put a free unique costume instead of the rare one in the New Player event box, could just be a Bunny Tux Unique costume so they can see that we do have statted costumes or even make a new one that is new player friendly, but not broken at end game or anything (Maybe like a costume with small HP boost, SP boost, standing SP regen and standing HP regen) and a weapon skin that gives like 1.5% basic attack boost. Also we should give a free Platemail lingerie (the level 17 Lingerie) or make a level 5 lingerie that has lesser stats than platemail if it is too much to have platemail in the starter pack so new players can have a lingerie unsealer and a lingerie to use for a little bit.

I am also curious to hear what other players think would be good for new players as well. :)

4. ) I am curious to hear what people have to say on this as well.

5. ) I actually like the amount of bosses we have now. I would however like less mobs (not guards) if possible, especially by spawn points. Makes it confusing not just for the side that is winning side, but also the losing side with tabbing. 

6. ) Kill off Bikini and Banana. Thnx

idk if this is possible but, can we have like an item or pet datachip that will take the exp of the arcana and save it in the datachip and there will be an option that transfer the saved exp to the new arcana user. then you can sell them to ah or trade it. this helps both the players that don't want to lvl up and the players that wants to lvl up. i think i've already suggested this :P 

can we have bot players in the lower lvls battlegrounds. especially lvls that don't have a lot of players now. it would help just entering the battlegrounds even if there's no players on the other faction

this is a personal one for me. can we have the dual(multiple account) login pls :)

Some Suggestions

1. for Me Nemesis PVP map if no new map can be made :) with revamp 

2. Making the guards Not one shot but deal huge dmg to avoid spawn camping( can be changed to One shot if ppl spawn camp more)

3. Adding Item NPC near PVP area 

4.If possible probable PVP gears from BG only and using some Special Rank points earned from PVP rather than farming NPC.

5.Improving New bie experience so they enjoy fast pace game and default NT gears not nearabout equal to +10 stats

6.Lvling up from 65 to 68 through quests and killing a fixed amount of mobs daily to attend the required experience to lvl up rather than introducing hours of farming at one area....which not only consumes time but makes sleepy...and tiring

More Exp from PVP map and BG like from rewards which can be gained extra if player done those fixed amount of killing mobs daily

7.Bike enhance +12 :v at 195 

More thinking will edit once done

Thanks for keeping game uptodate

i would like to suggest having bossess in the new map that are not so hard to kill yet worth the pvp over them , meaning they drop good stuff like ears or uni costumes etc ... a max of 3-5 bossess should be more then enough

At least with this map, we can tell people to "go to the bleachers" when we have another PvP event.

2. Making the guards Not one shot but deal huge dmg to avoid spawn camping( can be changed to One shot if ppl spawn camp more)

3. Adding Item NPC near PVP area 

Can imagine how frightened a merchant would be when that close to the fighting.

4.If possible probable PVP gears from BG only and using some Special Rank points earned from PVP rather than farming NPC.

The Points I doubt is doable without Source.  One idea that came from this is the removal of RP Chips from drop tables and convert the dog tags into them.  Converted Chips being far more valuable than from NPC kills.  Or make the Dog Tags be worth some RP

5.Improving New bie experience so they enjoy fast pace game and default NT gears not nearabout equal to +10 stats

6.Lvling up from 65 to 68 through quests and killing a fixed amount of mobs daily to attend the required experience to lvl up rather than introducing hours of farming at one area....which not only consumes time but makes sleepy...and tiring

OKAY! Let's talk! I've recently started over with questing throughout Scarlet Blade and these are a few things I've noticed..

Scylla: I know that the levels are 41-43 but this place was so short lived and I actually enjoyed it a lot questing through it (maybe it was because I've never really quested through it expect maybe like twice). I did finish most of it (EDIT: I finished all of it) but what I really would of loved is that the portal near Headsnatcher was used, I honestly tried to see if I could go into the portal but I couldn't. I feel like something was suppose to be on the other side but ASB couldn't pull it through? We'll never know. Also the scenery was beautiful!

 

Quest: I personally loved the quest that we had to do in Caergate with I believe her name was Naomi for the RG's... (sorry if im wrong) it was something about escorting her that I loved, also I loved that if you messed up you could restart it unlike the timed escorts which I find super annoying.

 

Collections: I personally love it now, I think there should be some kind of continuation on it! Let's call it Omega and make the color purple? Minions and bosses in dungeons should be the only way to get it.

New Players: Honestly.... I think more experience should be due and HEAR ME OUT! So far questing from level 1-30 is a breeze (if you plus your gears right) once you get to 30 and on? It gets harder, which it should but finding ways to get experience WITHOUT power leveling is extremely difficult and you have to get creative. With the exp booster I get from minions drops, it help alot~! The only real ways I found to level with the booster is doing Ignis Vortex, killing minions that were around level 39, the FK NPC's, going to nem v2 and kill the FK NPC around base, and quests. Now I'm in my 40's and it sucks even more! The Abyssal Temple at level 39 is a headache and I've avoid it like the plague because how the way the dungeon is ran is very much different from TTC and to me, it's unbeatable even with me have +10 gear! Even after doing ALL the quest you get about 40%, halfway, or 60% if you're lucky! It's not enough to get to the full 100% so more exp is very much needed.

Only reason why im saying exp is need is because I see a a handful of new players come, get boosted, and then quit because of the fact that they get boosted. You can't really do much about it if they do get boosted but at least with more exp they'll get to the level they desire a bit fast and not be caught on lacking experience.

 

Monster Spawn Event: I know ASB did this a long time ago and honestly I think it needs to be brought back. I like the fact it brought people together to kill the bosses for like what... 30 mins or so? then at the end was the famous balls~~~! Honestly I loved those golden nuggets because it helped lower level people to level up because they dropped amazing exp and it could help with people who come and are any level.  I think maybe there could be a way to make the drop tablet different each week or 2 weeks? Ya know to keep it spicy and a reason for people to come!

BTW if a new map get introduced or recycled, I believe it only need 3 bosses (One main and two side bosses). No one really do bosses anymore so there's no need to get crazy with them.

If anymore come across my mind i'll add on to it 😁

I would say the problem with Nemesis is that it's the worst map to play in if you do not have the best computer and will constantly crash. I actually would prefer not to have that map, honestly.

 I agree but crashes happens almost everymap also viledon map is second best but if new map can be introduced then it's good....like the one in suer but small size

I personally liked Caergate. I never really crashed as much there, it's smaller, and good place to PvP at mid where Titan would be.

EDIT: Not everyone has a great computer and a lot of people do play this game because their computers cannot handle other games well. 
I already crash sometimes in Vile's map, not that often though and this is me using a pretty decent gaming laptop, but me myself and others will definitely constantly crash in Nemesis. I mean, there has been an issue since ASB where if you leave the base, your graphics have to be low and you can put them back higher once you are away from the base, but if you want to go back to the base, you have to lower your graphics again and luckily you may not crash trying to re-enter and this was taught to me by several other players who also have the same issue I did with Nemesis. The crashing when trying to re-enter nemesis base even happens still with low graphics as well. The scripting of Nemesis is just really bad along with making it so big, which makes things even worse. 
I would take any other possible map than Nemesis. Like even Scylla over Nemesis.

I agree with those. Nemisis best 😧

CG is and was always boring as PvP map.

Hi Hi 

Cro here and first of all i would like to thx the people that cared enough to respond to this chance to give their input into the possible development of (building better worlds) heheh  ya this long novel is going to be full of cheesy one liners and great movie quotes (cause hope is a good thing, sometimes the best of things and i will be hoping this letter finds you and finds u well)and shameless plugs heheh so lets get into it 

But sadly now its time to bring the cold hard harsh untainted view of sbv through the eyes of a Cro so lets take a trip down memory lane 

at  the time of writing this feedback there is 3 fk online and 3 rg online that i can tell at this time actually doing things in the game zero fk and rg in amara and all 5 bosses including mini s are still standing 

So lets start that walk down memory lane shall we first off it pains me to say it but the days of legendary pvp and guilds like Pure, United Era and Clear(hehe shameless plug remember) are done and gone, when top of the hour battlegrounds nb, and ak were cutting players out due to capacity limits, and vile and nemisis was 24/7 pvp hell i passed out one time from 2 days straight of pvp in vile and my guildies protected my ass from major rp loss for 8 straight hours but just because that pvp is gone doesnt mean this game is dead so lets see if your insanity can be cured

CUTTING THROUGH THE BS

PvP we need more, we need better drops, we need more bosses, we need we need we need ............. hmmmm lets take a look at past history on that one in a few moments  for you know the old saying but im gonna say it  anyway people who forget the past are doomed to repeat it   

ok boys and girls if u have gotten this far maybe your willing to come a little further if not then its choose your own adventure time and your story ends here 

return to dragon valley await the new patch run around in circles on the hillside for days straight achieve the new max level for you are now done and there is nothing left to do but fade away 

but if you wish to take the blue pill then lets dive head first into that rabbit hole for you are brave one grasshopper 

HISTORY 

Welcome students to Mr Cro s History class 101 and for todays lessen we will be talking about the level cap 60 - 65  with a main focus area of level 60 uni gear and 65 lingerie 

we will briefly touch on the 60-65 crafting was an ok idea fair the players choice of what they wanted to use but what the creators failed to see was how easy it was to get the medals of recognition thru gloria by flat out purchase of the medals and or the purchase of the pvp gear from gloria and then salvage that gear get the 10 or 20 medals rinse and repeat till u had all u needed to go a crafting  there for defeating the whole idea of u must pvp to get the crafting tools needed to craft that gear  i will give credit to the creators of this era of the game for liveplex themselves did away with that many options on gear after 29 for it is my opinion that the only true unique gear in this game is not unique at all but rare and only available in the caergate cap for it is this gear that is truly customizable and giving the player the true ability's to have a 1 of a kind weapon and or gear and not the cookie cutter gear we have now 

 The 65 ling and uni 60 costume drops was a simply a shit show over run with faction hoppers and looters not to mention the loss of trust by the community toward the creators who decided it was in the games best interest to change peoples stats, skill trees and then when they show us the excel sheets of what they did and im not going to mention class but u can look it up in forums but it was so funny when the creators said buffed and other things heehehehehheehhe wow OTHER THINGS us lowly pheasants dont deserve to know, the all mighty creators know whats best for how we should be playing our toons, without the the complete approval of the community on modifying of any gear stats, mech stats and accessory stats this should have never been allowed  and then designer stats for the ling which traditionally all ling was same stats for all classes and change requirement levels like uni bandaid was 1 but is now  60 silence skill stone was level 30 but is now 50 and that is probably just the tip of the iceberg since there is now zero transparency  

recap of this history lesson 

1) Gloria Consignment needs to be removed from all levels and completely discontinued for without her impossible for looters to move gear and or items from one side to the other there for requiring ppl to stay in game and shout out or use word of mouth to sell things this doesn't effect any ap purchases since we all no ap can be gotten from rg or fk heheeh just be careful when u grab from ap list u are logged onto the right faction  if gloria is gone 

2) There should be zero rewards for pvp isnt pvp the reward itself?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????PvP is horribly flawed for the weak are meat and the strong shall eat and what the creators forgot to see is 10vs10 is that fair pvp ?? If u said yes it is your destiny to go take the red pill and go run around in circles in dv till ur max level and then fade away.  the only way to have true fair pvp is 1 me cb wh de se pu vs the same and those players must all have same max pet r2 pet chips full uni level 2 jewels max randoms so forth and so on u get the point  PvP IS NOT SUSTAINABLE  ITS KILLED THIS GAME ONCE AND ITS JUST ABOUT TO KILL IT A 2ND TIME PvP should be used as a desert not a main course, Player base is at an all time low bosses in amara have dust bunnies growing on them and there is very little to no pvp in that zone anymore if ur lucky for that top of the bg hour u might get to see 1vs1 does that sound like we should rely on the ol pvp trick to save the game again did it work for the 60-65 patch short term sure but the minute all got there gear all done shows what everybody really thinks about pvp by the dust bunnies heheh no lets go with dust kitties all over the amara bosses at this time but i think ive found away to force pvp without  causing any one to gain by looting  and i will summarize at the end of this novel 

3) and as far as the final issue goes in this history recap i dont no if the trust can be returned to these current creators 

ok students thats a end to this history lesson thx for coming see u in the next class 

NEWBIES

Sadly the only new player is an old player acting like they are new and for the very few that are new here is their harsh reality there is very few senior players anymore willing to help these people understand do what they need to do get there gear better because they all always tell me and to quote a famous tv commercial i cant get a job because i dont have any skills i dont have any skill because i cant get a job heheh  aka i cant ups my gear cause i dont have gold i dont have gold cause i cant farm cause my gear sucks these poor ppl are stuck in a world devoid of ppl there level and skill level and are lost and or stuck due to zero player base syndrome 

again i talked about all this along time ago about the food chain its severely broken now and I'm of the opinion that the 69 cap should be suspended and replaced with a 29 patch of more bosses blood soul for 29 should be opened and all senior players should put away there upper 65 toons and only play 29 cap to show any new players the ropes give them support make them feel welcome and especially that there not alone 

but talking about the newbies plight has made me emotional   now and im sad and dont wish to continue with this post at this time

Argree

- There are old players who disguise as new players but there's really nothing that can be done about that. 

-I agree with the bosses in Amara collecting dust and I understand why because there's no point to do them cause everyone is geared and what not but I looked forward to doing those bosses for a chance to get the item drops or the title item the bosses drop (Still only have one under my belt) but also I don't understand why they're not being done, just because you're gear doesn't mean anything! The boss still drops good loot that could help other players.

- I hate the whole "I can't up my gears because I have no gold" or "I can't do the dungeon because my gear sucks". I say BS! Because I started over in doing SB properly and it matters what you spend your gold on! A new player shouldn't be buying anything!!! (Probably going to make a beginner guide on this...) As they should see stuff in Gloria is mad expensive for no reason so the question you should be asking them is what did they spend their gold on? Tell them to go do quests! or do the lower level dungeons (in their level range). 

Disagree

-The medals were great! For people like me who are just meh about fighting in battlegrounds it help to get it another way which was Gloria. Not everyone likes to PvP and rather do dungeons are bosses

- I agree that there should be something done to bring back PvP BUT like you said it's gone and dead. Let's be honest imo i'm not going to PvP if they're no rewards, sure I like fighting the other faction like the next person but I also don't want my time wasted. I think people need to get their heads out of the clouds thinking about the old days of PvP because not everyone wants to fight.

- So with the "new" players being around... it is not and I repeat not our job to help, hear me out. We can give advice until our face turns purple and try to help but sometimes the "new" players could con you, could quit playing the game on you, or ignore your advice entirely and do what they want, which they can but are you really going to give advice to every single new player? My way of going about this and this is just me! I wait to see if the "new" player sticks around because I'm not going to invest time into them just for them to quit but I will throw them a bone to help them out. After that if they stay and want help then I personally will help 'em out.

My favorite PvP Map and escort quests in order of best to worst

1) Nemesis - Perfect spot to have a center all out sprawl, certain bosses you had only 1 way to reach them, has multiple mid level boss, and escort quests was often a cause for pvp. Once guards did one shot kills it helped keep players from spawn killing.

2) Viledon/Amara - Perfect spot to have a center all out sprawl. Hounds used to be doable in decent time with decent drops and caused major pvp among the faction when 1 player was caught with their pants down doing them alone and then they called for backup which turned into 2 vs 1 then 2 vs 2, then 3 vs 2, then 3 vs 3, etc.... Until there was enough to wipe out the faction, hold off the other faction, and take the hound before the other faction could return. Loot was worth the fight for it. Used to have a decent escort quest, but that's broken.

3) Ellis - one of the worst for pvp because of the half life you got when jumping down to fight the zerg. Mini-bosses decent with decent stuff, and multiple escort quests.

4) Caergate - I give this the worst pvp map of all time because it is too easy for players to spawn kill and spawn camp. Bosses were meh. Escort was boring. I'd rather see this map revamped into a BG map where a portal is on a timer and being in the map has a countdown so you can't stay in it longer than allowed. Kinda like how VIP and suer kicks you out after 8hours except this should do it after 1hr of being available and to replace the AK, NB, or add a 3rd mass pvp BG. I think Blood portal will kick people out after it closes if I am right if the same concept could be done here.

Favorite NPC?
Jeanne & Momo - because ya why else did I start playing this game? It wasn't for the pve and pvp since I felt like I hit a wall once I reached level 19 (my first MMORPG game and didn't understand the mechanics thinking that I had to pay to level up).

How to help new players?

I have no damn clue since the last time I helped a "new player" they stopped playing after I gave them some pretty sweet gear enhanced and spanned. So, maybe rethink about how to keep old players active and new players interested. Hint: it's not about giving them free stuff, it's about the community and not being stomped on or hit a wall because they chose the wrong class meaning every class should have equal leveling speeds and protection for farming. For pvp people need to not get stun locked death where stuns last longer than buffs and they die 2 hits later or not give them buffs so 10 players couldn't even take them down. It's all about what you plan to with skills and in game content that will keep them active when the community isn't active.

Just a thought, can you raise the level of DG bosses without raising the difficulty or atks? I say that because then you could create some dailies for upper levels to do team mode in every DG and have a new player with them for experience runs and loot for that level of player. Or create an upper/lower class DG where the bosses are more difficult, loot stills drops like a normal DG or different loot for different things that is useful at all levels, but exp is much higher? Just saying this might help allow new players to play with older players. Or have older players willing to call new players to come play with them?

How many bosses should the map have?

To me it's not so much how many, as you can have 300 and if they all drop crap, drop rate being horrible, and too difficult to do nobody will give a damn about any of them. So, personally 5 was a good number, but you need to have a really good drop rate, not make them too difficult, and not drop a bunch of crap. If you are creating new gear having it drop 1 uni/special item out of every 10 deaths to me is horrible and the reason nobody cares about the bosses in Amara because why go through the effort to get a group of people together if you are just going to get crap?

6 Mini bosses is a good number, but again are also the same where they need to be difficult enough to take awhile, but not too difficult that it takes way too long, as well as not drop crap. They should also drop something entirely unique to them that alerts both factions that a mini-boss was just taken. What I mean by this is having an item that you can only get from a mini-boss, it's highly useful, and everybody knows that you just got one so everybody knows you are farming mini-bosses. I would say that these should take probably about 10min max to kill solo by the worst DPS character in the game excluding the ME as they can be the best DPS player or have no DPS depending on their skill tree.

Recommend also

DV - needs to be divided more and have short range portals that work throughout the map. You don't need create another pve map just for exp farming, but at least make mobs more uniform to a particular area for particular players. Probably change or add more mass mobs similar, not the same, to the ones people currently farm exp at.

Gear - well, if you keep to the pvp/pve gear, I say make it only obtainable in a manner in which you need it. If you want pvp gear it should be only obtainable in BGs or PvP map bosses. If you plan to make it craftable then make it so that you have to participate in BGs or pvp map bosses for craft items for as well as the level DG for that one or 2 special items. PvE gear should be easily obtained in DG. Maybe require players to get PvE gear before they can upgrade it to pvp gear? IDK

Uni costumes - needs an increase drop rate. Players like myself use these to craft rare costume looks onto them, I refuse to pay 10k in gold for a uni costume, 5k for uni grafting tool, and 8k+ rare costume. That's like calling it cheap for some of these new uni costumes and AP items. Last March I probably ate up over 200k in gold converting uni costumes into a new look and have about 25 different costumes that no longer resemble the original. I don't do taht any more, not because of a lack of room but I'm not going to drop 50k for a new look when the stats on the 1 uni set I use is just fine. Just saying, look at your AP purchases last spring when you increased drop rates for the uni bunny and nurse costume stuff if you can.

I would really watch for players who swear by this, that, or another thing as you should probably look at the pattern in the game of player activities. Halloween, Christmas, and other events increase activity, so maybe consider events that players want to participate in. I didn't attend the last pvp event, because why? What would I have gotten out of it except wasting time over doing something else outside the game more enjoyable?

To me it's about enjoying the game, and the things I enjoy about this game really is basically my own Arkana. Used to enjoy other things about the game but I feel it's either unable to participate in or waste of time. I can't go to NB because of the time and AK is now no longer an option because of the time. DGs aren't fun because I can't get wings because I can't go to AK, so waste of time for me since loot sucks without wings. BGs result in 1 vs 1 or 2 vs 2, loot in them sucks, and I'm tired of trying to pvp against other people because they get wings, my ch-eva can't get high enough to keep from getting disabled or stunned, and eva is horrible that I can't prevent getting pulled. So, I dropped all protection buffs as I don't plan on participating in PvP or BGs and just login farm RP and log out waiting for something great to happen in a patch that I can do. So, depending on what you all do with the character skills, cap increase, drops, etc... Will depend on if you lose more players like what happen when you made the 65 cap or actually get player base to increase that will make it enjoyable or not. What I talked about here is what I enjoy about the game and what I don't enjoy about the game, if some of the things that some players talked about happen I will ultimately end up not enjoying the game at all.

Players need to talk about what they enjoy doing in the game or what they would enjoy doing more in the game. Everything else should fall into place from there. Some of the comments here sound a bit overboard on this topic as the last time they did something far too extreme it lost players, not retained them.

My suggestions are quite straight and simple:

  • Return to the basics. Make the game accessible to new players, I talk here about the 60+ maps/DGs. Return to the basics, meaning: No mob or Boss in PvE/PvP/DG should be higher than players max level, SB has always been like that til we moved out of 54 cap... New player can't simply do a thing at 60+ and the results is obvious they quit and rightfully so, being full +10 but unable to do anything being at max level is nothing accessible, we will never get new players unless they can join and have the time to learn the game and grow (farm for gears/RP to reach the top in terms of gears). All previous cap til 54 it was always possible to start lower in gears and make your way through farming and doing Bosses at PvP map, now it's not possible at all, even super max geared players have hard time running DGs...
  • The key to moving forward is making sure new players have at least hope to catch up to the best in time as far as gears/jewels are concerned, for that they need to be able to farm 60+ DGs. it's already nice that leveling up pet is not an issue.
  • It's about time to remove debuffs from 60+ PvP map Bosses so that people can actually PvP while doing Bosses like back then, Orenji DoT for example is very problematic for SWs when there is PvP at Bosses.
  • Make BG (not AK/NB) worth attending, they should have their special set of reward unavailable anywhere else, like tokens u could get and use to craft special things like 3 days NT Guardian Blessing  and other special items that can be created and that only BG tokens can craft.
  • fix Amara RP mobs in Oasis drop, 500 NT CP pots should be replaced by 800 NT CP pots.
  • Bring back the old launcher where you could set all kinds of graphic options before launching game.

I personally liked Caergate. I never really crashed as much there, it's smaller, and good place to PvP at mid where Titan would be.

EDIT: Not everyone has a great computer and a lot of people do play this game because their computers cannot handle other games well. 
I already crash sometimes in Vile's map, not that often though and this is me using a pretty decent gaming laptop, but me myself and others will definitely constantly crash in Nemesis. I mean, there has been an issue since ASB where if you leave the base, your graphics have to be low and you can put them back higher once you are away from the base, but if you want to go back to the base, you have to lower your graphics again and luckily you may not crash trying to re-enter and this was taught to me by several other players who also have the same issue I did with Nemesis. The crashing when trying to re-enter nemesis base even happens still with low graphics as well. The scripting of Nemesis is just really bad along with making it so big, which makes things even worse. 
I would take any other possible map than Nemesis. Like even Scylla over Nemesis.

I am using a non gaming laptop i dont crash often even in ASB even with spam naplam or balls spawn.....

I crash if Ram is utilised in a bad way.... 

Recently i crashed when Recording video at max settings and max graphics on game XD

but true i suggested Nemesis looking at player base which is quite low.....

All we can do is test on test server idk how it handles player base on tht server

Hi Hi 

Cro again and if u made it thru my horrible first post maybe u can make it thru a 2nd one im just gonna touch on the newbies cause i wanna get thru this but yes they need a generous gear package to start and possibly an option for starting at level 60 if they so choose including all skill points from questing in lower levels since its so empty everybody knows how hard it is to farm solo from 60-65 so if they stick thru that and find some help from time to time  they really wanna play and in my book proven they wanna stay and play 

ok now finally my ideas for more fun and yes u can say dam it cro its bout time u get to the point hehehe sorry 

1) The were this new patch should be 

Suggestions for cg or ellis for the new patch are interesting ideas and sound fun but im sure most of us would love to see new ground Xanfire (if u rem him from rg side) once told me that he played that game were suer and dragon valley came from and said it was a pretty neat game and with the many portals to other worlds and unfinished dungeons thru out those maps it would be interesting to move the upper levels to all new ground and in these new grounds maybe u could incorporate quests like destroy the tanks or research facility or destroy and or escorts from both cg and ellis maps as well but the most important thing is the map needs to be SMALL 

2)PvP

Here is were we really need to do something totally different I mean its been what 10 plus years we have been fighting over the same old things it really needs to change first off we need to move the reason for pvp away from bosses and over to a small section of the pvp map to certain set of mobs that spawn 24/7 and u rem the everlasting pen dont u were in these mobs it will drop 1 piece of the puzzle for making ur new 69 helm or 67 bangle there for it doesnt matter what time in the world u play when ur on u will always have a chance for that piece of the puzzle this will be quick fast action pvp were people wont get board and switch sides just to get pvp over so they can loot they will be able to loot while pvp is ongoing because the mobs will die with peoples aoe and ur happy little pet can be running around collecting the 1 PIECE OF THE PUZZLE and just like the everlasting pen quest pow u now have a piece of the puzzle 

Oh and u say we gotta have bosses fine put in some bosses and have them drop a piece of the puzzle as well but as you have all watched thru time people really dont want pvp that lasts long and then have to do bosses as well the main reasons are time, looting skills suck and especially now since actual population is at an all time low people just dont want to spend an hr or so fighting over bosses then to actually do the bosses only(provided you even have a medic in your time to get u thru) to see all your time wasted because u missed grabbing a decent piece of loot  not to mention rg own 12 hrs of the pvp zone and then the fk own the other 12 hrs of the pvp map so fighting over bosses has always been a waste of time 

2nd piece of the puzzle can be gained from running dailys and completing quests and rem how we used to level up when we reached that point when we had no more quests for that level we farmed dungeons or just ran around in circles till we leveled up all mobs from a non pvp zone will drop the second piece of the puzzle along with  passcards for the new dungeon cause trust me u are going to want to farm as many puzzles pieces as u can 

3rd and 4th piece of the puzzles shall be gotten from dungeon runs solo dungeon runs only 

Mobs in the dungeon drop the 3rd piece of the puzzle while bosses drop the 4th piece this way sw cant fade the mobs u will be required to do the work another reason for solo runs is so u cant dual log and make a party with yourself BUT IM A MEDIC YOU SAY I HAVE NO ATTACK SKILLS thats fine and dandy we all have a stack of skill resets use one before the dungeon become a battle medic and breeze on thru the dungeon for the dung shall drop skill resets for the few that dont have a 255 stack of em O u say ur a Newbie and cant survive thats fine u can survive long enough in the dungeon to get to the first boss and the first boss shall be easy to defeat there 4 granting ur 4th piece of the puzzle but danger will robinson toughness levels will increase with each boss along with the mobs

The dungeon 

This dungeon needs to be short and sweet unlike AT more like hidden ship or the dung from halloween with senora in the pond at the end also the option to bypass the 1st and 2nd boss if u wish to skip thoses chances for a few more 4th puzzle pieces but the mobs will still follow minus the bosses so if u think ur tough enough skipping is an option but fair warning good luck with that heeheheheh for death will be swift and respawn will be imminent but i think we would all love a new dung im sure there is many hiding in ur arsenal of files 

The Reward

Now yeah ive finally got all my 4 pieces of the puzzle well whats my prize u say hehehe ur name is now Yu-gi-oh and u have the pharaohs knecklace around ur neck No silly u get to go see pamela  the synthesis tech 

The Hook 

Lets talk about the one and only thing in this game that has had a single reason to always have the most peoples participation and that is if you said Al Kasava and wings you are correct The wings in ak is the single most massive hook in this game and all want wingys and it consistently keeps u coming back for more 

well with my idea once u step up to pamela is my hook for u need all 4 pieces of the puzzle to make your gear u sit there weak n the knees while pamela synthesizes ur piece of gear for u have no idea if it will be a helm or a bangle and pow she is done and u say f@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@k rare wtf really a rare bangle for a se nt, cant be kiloed  and then u say dam it man back to the salvage girl Audrey where she will gladly take ur unusable bangle since ur a pu for example and giving u half of the needed puzzle pieces once she breaks it down so hopefully u farmed enough puzzle pieces to go back and try again for pamela has the capabilities of dropping a uni just the hook to keep u coming back for more along with everybody else is nt but in this world uni s should be likke there were back in the day not like they are now like candy they need to be something like back in asb days if u got a  uni drop from sf for gloves for example that was a major accomplishment in this world uni is so hard to get if pamela does give u a rare pu bangle for ex that u can use the stats will be better than ur kappa gear and u will want to use it for getting a uni from pamela will be hard and the only way to get uni s for this system is the fairest it can possibly ever be for its based on u and ur desire to finish ur gear in unis and not because of luck or ur keen looting skills 

so if u have the level and the 4 pieces pamela has the possiblility of droping u a rare or uni bangle or helm for ur class but they will be nt tradeable shall be permitted only if gloria consignment is killed or is split so if u sell something on the fk side only the fk side can see it or if u sell something on the rg side only rg can see it but rem just cause u get a uni with ur class there is theta epsilon lota and eta so u might just get a uni pu theta bangle heehheheheh dam it man back to the drawing board 

Rings and Necklaces

these shall drop from dung bosses,  pvp mobs, non pvp zone mobs in all styles (killer, wizard and so on) and mostly rare but on that extremely rare blue moon u just might get a random tradeable uni neck or ring 

Smog shall also be able to drop rare necks and rings along with an extremely rare chance to get a uni as well but y make the necks and rings tradeable u say and not the helms or bangles for the final hook i say 

Ak and Nb 

During Ak and Nb the bosses shall have an extremely rare i mean even more rare then a uni drop from the final boss in the dung run or even rarer than it is to get a smog pet skin drop heheheheh but during these 2 battlegrounds urka or abba shall be all to drop the tool u need to see Doreen and amplify 1 ring or neck by adding extra stats for certain amount of time say 3 days for example give u 4 extra random stats on a ring or neck and making it nt for the duration of the added stats 

these ideas keep the people playing and always trying to make there gear better instead of doing what weve been doing for the last decade getting the uni drop from bosses and then let quiting till something new comes out

OKAY! Let's talk! I've recently started over with questing throughout Scarlet Blade and these are a few things I've noticed..

Scylla: I know that the levels are 41-43 but this place was so short lived and I actually enjoyed it a lot questing through it (maybe it was because I've never really quested through it expect maybe like twice). I did finish most of it (EDIT: I finished all of it) but what I really would of loved is that the portal near Headsnatcher was used, I honestly tried to see if I could go into the portal but I couldn't. I feel like something was suppose to be on the other side but ASB couldn't pull it through? We'll never know. Also the scenery was beautiful!

Following the storyline, it was just the portal for Small Spaceship, in fact you litterally enter in a crashed spaceship in that place. As the Abyssal Temple door should be in the big place near Widowmaker, in Barbirion. Aeria always said they will fixed those doors, but I'm sure they had already decided to close Scarlet Blade before level 54 patch...

By the way, I agree Scylla is a good map to use.

OTHER THINGS us lowly pheasants dont deserve to know, the all mighty creators know whats best for how we should be playing our toons, without the the complete approval of the community on modifying of any gear stats,

This should be seen lmao.

plus the actual problem is not the skill unbalance. its the attitude towards the players who genuinely thought this was a mess. 
we got said stuffs like "Skills are working as they were supposed to be." when clearly it wasn't. 
now in this dire situation everyone is like "Oops! seems like it wasn't working well". how many players are online now. 5? and how many among them who care about the game and want changes? 

 

i suggest everyone to check through the posts that was posted after 65 patch came out. or heck go into the game and shout for new suggestions *with no contingency of getting banned if been offensive*. be humble and everyone in the community will help because the ones who play the game loved it so much to move on to another one. as cro said People are not pheasants that they should be treated like one. 

 

Pride comes before fall. and right now everything on the edge on the cliff.

I have a doubt sugestions only for high lvls or i can make any sugestion for lower lvls too?

Was a good made something to encourage pvps at lower lvls and not just emphasize high level ones.
As maybe new equipment change the custon lvl 60 to be used from lvl 1 too, who knows even by mech major and unic gear to lvl 20-29 if possible 😉

Bosses for new map should be Minimum atleast 2 Spawn a day FK prime time and RG prime time loot have to be good 

this way people will be active and steal boss or pvp for it.....

Why lvl 68? why not 69? since this game is so 18+ give us 69 please :) 

Escorts are good this way even tho players are not really active they would log on to afk for escort and i can just rack up my kills :).

Vivi and the staff do so much for y'all lol. It takes forever to make changes and then y'all just shit on it. Vivi especially cares so much about trying to make y'all happy (I don't fucking know why). P.S Vivi is the one that is treated like a peasant, slaving away. If you want to actually give useful feedback, make a list, with more details on what you'd like to see changed/improved and send it on Discord. I'm in all you guys' channels. Noobs.
