I wonder if nexon EU has as many hacked accounts as the US.

From what I have seen/experienced with Mabinogi, I highly doubt anyone even works at Nexon NA. It is just a bunch of monkeys throwing turds at everything.

@Maseno As much as I enjoy the games Nexon runs, I have to agree with this. If the company was run by monkeys I would not be surprised. This might sound harsh, but if you have played a Nexon game you would understand. This is a lazy company, and it shows.

I would play this game if it wasn't for the fact that all the classes are gender locked. I've said it before, but gender locking is just plain being lazy on the dev's part.

Yea it sucks but in the end you get use to it since in the end it's a game and if a game is fun, you'll keep playing it.

This is an Action MMO, not a MMORPG. Complaining about gender locking on Vindictus is as foolish as complaining about gender locking on Street Fighter characters. Players in Vindictus play a character, NOT a class. Vindictus is NOT about creating a digital version of yourself to roleplay. Obviously you are interested in RPG type games, look elsewhere instead.

I put in a support ticket once to get an item that was lost on the AH, and it took them a year to get back to me. When they finally did? gave me 20k nexon points.
But I dont think I can play vindicus any more, I always seem to have serious lag issues when I play with others, but its just fine when I solo.

I've noticed this as well and think it can come from various sources, all problems caused by the peer-to-peer/player-based hosting:
1) many people have internet that is better at downloading than uploading. some of the cheaper plans are very crippled in upload and this may cause bandwidth problems when hosting

2) hardware capability. I think when hosting a game, an additional (sub?)process is launched. so if the computer is already at near 100% capability for the single player client (the graphics, sound etc), giving it additional load by hosting might be more than the computer can handle.

Back when i played, i could only solo or join other people's games. Most likely due to my weaker hardware at the time, I could not host boats for other players. It would have been ideal to have the option of player hosting or using a dedicated server like how Valve provides (optional) dedicated servers for L4D2.

A little weird that Massively only reports on updates to the EU version of the game and not to the NA version.

I get the feeling that only Beau has tried it occasionally but does not really follow it, and the rest don't play it. So EU-only is probably just relayed press releases from Nexon. I don't think Eliot actually plays Vindictus.

Not worth grinding 6 months to achieve what hackers can literally get in 1 day.
