  1. Server is down talk here

    The reason majority of suggestions remain not replied is because of lack of definite context. As in, it's never as simple as a yes or no. For example, often things such as: - The suggestion is good, but technical issues aren't allowing us to properly implement it, but for example the technical issues aren't too definite - there are things we know we can't do, but there are many things we don't know if we can or not do. Even so, just because something doesn't work when you first try it out, doesn't necessarily mean it won't work several months down the line. In this instance, you can't reply the suggestion properly because you don't necessarily want to say no if it can be possible in the future. - The suggestion is a maybe, but there are too many variables to properly evaluate. Event suggestions fall in this category most often, specifically in regards to items more than anything. For example, we know the community will uproar an event that doesn't contain full sets for certain characters such as Ain, yet the suggestion would provide majority of sets that simply don't have anything above even Add. We can't create something from scratch that the officials don't have, and even when they do have it - it doesn't always mean we can instantly implement it in our current working version. Quite a lot of other cases where it doesn't just boil down to a yes or no and it shouldn't either. In majority of the games I've personally played I have never seen staff replying 99% of suggestions, only the ones they are fully interested in or have some merit. We generally avoid saying we are looking into something especially if the chance of it not working out is pretty high which would just disappoint regardless. Pretty much every suggestion has been looked at by a staff member, evaluated, noted in a tracking file and kept in mind when revisiting updates. What you need to understand is there are no easy updates, even this update seemingly small takes a complete grind of hours to work through manually creating over 1k items by hand, implementing, testing while working on v2.2 in-between everything else, all to yield the occasional "meh, shit update". Regardless of Void being in an uphill battle with itself right now, we are still going to be working hard on the next big version and continue to maintain it. There are many things out of our control ranging from script kiddies ruining everyone's experience with hacks to all sorts of deep rooted server issues we can not currently solve to the inevitable time-bomb that was the ED situation, but despite everything - we'll continue to try our best and improve things as we go towards the future. P.S: Server's online.
  2. Mantenice Fix Board

    This has been suggested in the past, unfortunately due to Elsword being a heavy type of game, maintenances are usually done manually which can often take hours of preparation and usually take about an extra 1-2 hours for an empty restart. That would simply cause more downtime than do anything productive.
  3. Status: Online Update: 16 Aug 2017 - A rollback will NOT be performed because we were able to remediate without needing it. - ED wipe is still happening due to the underlying issue in the system itself needing removal. - Once again, the ED wipe only includes the Coin/Certificate/Ticket items being fully purged from the game. - You will not be banned if you received ED, so you don't have to worry about it. We are currently in the process of finalizing the fixes and the server will be back online afterwards. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Due to recent events from the last few days that have caused an immense amount of ED to pour into the server, because of several flaws in the game, we have no other choice but to: - Deprecate the Void Coin/Certificate/Ticket system - Deprecate the Re-buy function from NPCs - Wipe all Void Coins/Certificates/Tickets || THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE ACTUAL ED, ONLY THOSE CUSTOM ITEMS - Rollback until the last maintenance (8th August 2017) - EC from today all the way back up to 8th at the time of the rolled date, will be refunded. Yes, this means all ED Coins, Tickets and Certificates will be permanently lost. This is a worst case scenario we did not fully anticipate, but has to happen immediately in order for us to remediate the situation.

    Elsword in a nutshell
  5. Server Issue Discussion Thread

    Relog your client fully, things should be back to normal now. It was most likely an issue that carried on from our test server.
  6. Our custom CDN is faster than MEGA in most cases since they put caps. You can use our downloader here: http://cdn.voidels.to/VoidDownloader.msi If it's super slow for you, just give it a couple of hours until the majority of fast-speed players finish downloading and the nodes free up.
  7. They've been both possible since 1.8 or even before that as far as I remember. +13 is disabled though.
  8. Today's maintenance thread I guess

    i din du nothin
  9. Today's maintenance thread I guess

    That's been a thing for a while. "APPOSTASIA WHEN?" ~ 2 days after the release "THIS CLASS IS TOO OP, SO SHIT, WTF VOID WHY YOU IMPLEMENT THIS, REVERT PLZ" Every character release went down like this so far since Add, nothing new.
  10. Today's maintenance thread I guess

    2,5m and 3 materials.
  11. Has Void officially fucked up?

    1. Hoarding literally means "the purchase of large quantities of a commodity with the intent of pushing up the price. An investor hoping to increase the price of a commodity can do so by leveraging his or her demand for it, and buying physical inventory as well as purchasing futures contracts for that commodity. Hoarding is basically no different than buying and keeping a commodity. However, if the investor's intent is to corner or otherwise monopolize a commodity, then it may be considered an illegal act." - Straight out of an economy dictionary. 2. We are planning to revisit the rates (most likely give them another 100% increase) on both IBs in the next rotation for all piece pulls. 3. A new ED burner is in the works, which will hopefully sink a large portion of ED in circulation. 4. ICs are not coming back as I've stated in multiple threads. IBs are not a "must" have item, if people didn't have the ED to buy for billions, people wouldn't be selling sets for those amounts in the first place. 5. Here are some ED stats from the server to give you a general perspective: 6,172,230,428,899 ED (6,1 Trillion) is currently available just via character inventory as standard stored ED. In addition to that 6,1 Trillion, you have Coins, Certificates & Tickets amounting the following (as of right now): There is 9,4 trillion of pure ED in circulation just amounting from character inventory and coins stored in said inventory, given the amount of people who store most of these items in the account bank, that number is likely much higher. If you want to blame anyone, blame the people who are selling for that much, because they know well enough people can afford to cough that up. Let's not pretend we didn't have "what are these IB prices, the economy is dying, apocalypse is upon us" threads long before IC removal was even a thing. I get that we are a private server, but what you don't factor in mind is regardless of being one - it costs about the same as being an official server to run, and on top of that most of the stuff that officials monetize is free here, factor also in the fact that we are 3 to 5 times cheaper and then you start seeing why keeping up Void afloat is not an easy task. tl;dr - We are planning to double the IB piece rates and release a better ED burner than what is available as of right now which will hopefully gradually lower the ED in circulation and in turn decrease the rates overtime. In addition, we've been looking into the ERP issue to figure a doable way of giving those CD/MP stats back to PvE players so everyone can get better means of farming the tougher dungeons that were designed with ERP in mind.
  12. Void the new Big Brother is Watching u ?

    Our NSA overlords asked us to backdoor the client, they said tapping fiber optic cables is no longer enough, they needed next-gen weeb-stalk-hentai-exfiltration© technology. No really, that's how it went down. Jokes aside, it's actually a function that's part of GameGuard and as far as I know it might actually transmit these pictures. However, odds are no one is actually analyzing them since wherever they are stored would be flooded with these from the many different games. The likely reason of why they do it, is because they want to validate certain thoughts when a crash occurs, having eyes on the screen or seeing potential errors that occur most likely makes their job easier. If you see the kind of information GameGuard and most of the games you play as well as other anti-hacks and programs in general transmit to their creators (which are way worse than a screenshot), you would most likely never want to play an MMORPG or use the Internet again.
  13. Whats with the Els Bail Train?

    People bail Void every time things get rougher and updates take longer, then they come back when a bigger update releases and that also brings in new Void players in that haven't tried it before. Either way, despite C:C thriving which is a nice thing, so are we at the moment. Our numbers are at the 2nd highest point (highest being the good old 1.3/1.4 days) where 4 channels were near full, and post-V2.0 our revenue is finally stabilized and back to normal likely thanks to the IC removal. It is nothing to worry about, people come and go all the time.
