    Default RIP C9 / Webzen?

    AegisRick recently posted this video:

    YouTube Video
    ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


    And man oh man, he hits the points far better than what I could of done. He is pretty much fed up with how w-word has been treating the game. Rightfully so too. I felt a lot of weight coming off my shoulders after watching this and decided to post it here to spread the word. Alot of C9 players' are subbed to his channel and he has a great community behind him. He really deserves a better game to play. Hopefully Black Desert? Why a company would treat this amazing game like this, continues to boggles my mind!

    I hope BDO chooses wisely who they are going to be publishing with. Because this is a PERFECT ****ing example of how a publisher can be cancer and will slowly eat your game alive.

    Edit: Right after making this topic, I checked AegisRick's youtube and he updated his description:

    "I've got an important update:

    Since making this video I fear I made the wrong people angry. I got Banned from the game only 9 hours later. Was fun guys, but I hope this shows what you're dealing with. I'm sorry I couldn't Finish that UG guide afterall"

    Unbelievable. At a loss of words.

    Meh, the game in its core is good. Coming from someone who's been playing it on and off since the server opening. However, that being said. There are tons of problems. Especially, with the pvp. First half year or so, almost nobody had unique weapons. Now everyone and their grandma seems to have one. This made pvp alot worse and unfair. Then came the master weapons, these are also pretty much OP in pvp. Especially, for certain classes. Then to finally send pvp into its grave, they brought out those orange tier gear with "player resist". Yes, you heard it right. Player resist makes you take MUCH less damage in pvp. That and a few unbalanced skill/classes they never seem to fix. Its a shame... since it has unique pvp and used to be kinda balanced.

    And all the garbage GM support and gold sellers dont help either. Also I heard they made pve harder. So I logged in a few days ago and entered a master dungeon at lv62. Got killed 3 times and had to use ultimate fury skill 3 times at boss. Random blue boss 3 hit k.o me. Before these "patches" I could solo master easely. So as you can see they probably try to make it a party game. Its unbalanced as crap now. I dont suggest it to new players at all. Waste of time. With little to no support. I never respected VLT's at all. Probably most just did it for the wcoins, which they didnt even deserve. Complete joke.

    ..And the reason for them to post this?

    http://forum.webzen.com/forum/en/c9-...ed-forum-users

    Cannot tell if they're just trolling or..... but

    They're definitely helping the game alright! Seems odd..

    Here is some info about what was saved from AegisRick's post..

    A very popular polish news gaming site picked this up early today:

    http://mmorpg.org.pl/news/zobacz/Pew...C4%99-Webzen-u

    It is getting a decent amount of publicity as well.

    It's funny, because when I saw a sneak preview vid of C9 years back I was super excited for a free movement game. Then never heard anything about it short of a few posts here and lost interest lol

    The three company you mention, I believe they are counter part of actual company's that developed some games, one from their counterpart Korean side. I think they are just split off versions for the western society. Well actually I'm not sure about enmasse, I think they are but I didn't really research their past since all I know was that their first game was is tera. I'm 60% sure Trion is a US base original company that develop rift. I'm 100% sure NCSoft is a original company that is split off for Korean company to expand to the west for games they developed, possibly other way around. Remembered the first game I played was City of Heroes from NCSoft.

    In all reality Webzen was never popular. If they become worse there's no need for action just simply leave. The worst lesson a company can learn is that CUST**** have the choice to just leave and not say a word to help them improve. That'll just make them go down hill and possibly bankrupt. I recently joined Archlord 2 beta and man that beta is dead. So reputation is possibly already killing the company off and they even bought out gpotato which is surprising. Also I don't know about anyone else but I felt it was pretty obvious that the company didn't want to take advice from the community in the first place.

    What does this have to do with C9?

    C9 is still the most unique mmo I have ever played and it will always be I guess.

    This combat system will never be topped by any other game, it's basically the 3d version of dungeon fighter online.

    Blame webzen, but don't blame the game itself.

    Typical corrupt playerbase-milking company. Now I've lost even more respect for Webzen.

    Edit: Wow - this guy is a great video maker!

    I loved the game's combat-system, but I only play extremely-popular games (like League... Guild Wars 2 wasn't popular enough for me) so that I don't have to see my game die. Which works for me, since the games I used to play competitively don't offer sponsored tournaments.

    Last time I remember Webzen, they never published SUN, Wiki, and Parfait station a long time ago. Not surprised they can't do their job right.

    Whelp, dodged a bullet with this game. I only got as far as character creation and the tutorial.

    Which is extremely sad because the game itself is stunning and worth your play-time.

    This is the most realistic example of how a publisher can ruin any game no matter how unique it is. For example, hypothetically ofcourse, Black Desert chooses this publisher. We all know where that will go. I really WISH that a popular english mmorpg site picks this up and does what mmorpg.org.pl did. Then again, we have to acknowledge it is there game and they can really administrate it however they want, and technically ban someone for saying the f-word.

    But, it's far more than that, and unfortunately only the players can notice, and not the public. This is why the company (w-word) stays so silent and anonymous all the time. AegisRick tried his best to let us know and I think he did his job. Far better than my video(s), (when I got banned).

    e/ The game is not "ruined", but on the US server it is. Sea and EU are still active last time I checked, (of bots like usual, and players ofcourse!). But, the sad truth is (don't want to be rude) but I'm sure most of their population over at SEA don't really understand what's really going on, or maybe they just don't want to accept it.

    If player's want to continue to play knowing that this type of company is behind the game, that's fine and dandy. Just not something I would want to invest anymore time into. And I believe it should be made aware that players KNOW about their game company before continuing to give them $. Nonetheless, investing thousands of hours into limbo..

    Sun Online, Artic combat, Archlord all were shutdown within a year I believe (Hell, it could of been even months).

    What makes it even worse, my friend (Fiery Joseph) used to upload tons of gun review videos for the game https://www.youtube.com/user/FieryJosephReviews/videos

    And once Artic Combat got shutdown, he went to Continent of the Ninth and that's how we became friends. He told me that w-word released a TON of Pay 2 Win guns months before it was shutdown. And he also told me other stuff like the population wasn't that bad, there was still a ton of people donating / etc, but that's mere heresay.

    In any event, it boggles my mind that people have the audacity to support this company. How they are even a company still baffles me. Its either the top boss is hiring GM's who are clueless (Which is most likely true) or the CEO is clueless. I would want to imagine it's just the CEO hiring clueless GM's because if that were the case, games can still be saved. How do we let him know? Who knows. They don't care.

    And if Pearl Abyss doesn't choose W-word we will KNOW DAMN well WHY. er.. or should I say WHEN.
