    Okay, we get the server update and windows update, but the deal with the Black Market...Why? Also my server is up and I was able to buy a Blade for my level 36 Runeblade WITH my Level 36 Runeblade...sort of does not jive with the "Must be Lv. 50 or higher to purchase an item from the Black Market or accept a trade from another player"... So this begs to my mind...what exactly did you guys do?

    Sup engineers ! I was wondering why you'd change all our Crystal Fragments to account-bound as it is the only tradable currency in game that isn't taxable ? The Fees for trading mesos are too high for us to not have anything else as a trading currency .

    As a mater of fact I do, you're probably right then, but then how would their planned implementation foil Meso Farmers, they would be able to do the same...

    Um, there's a reason there are taxes on trading mesos... otherwise they probably wouldn't be there, right? So it's perfectly reasonable that they try to prevent people from circumventing the fees.

    Besides, any item with a value can be used in place of mesos. If you really want to use alternatives, Onyx crystals are an obvious choice as long as both people agree to the current value on the BM...

    What!? Man, using the black market for me, was FUN, I buy there, I sell there, all on low characters, why did you have to ruin that? Why have a black market only for the highest players? That takes away the cool functionality of the game, the bot reason makes no sense, there are bots EVERYWHERE - that do NOT care about the black market I bet, I'm discouraged. Honestly, I was having fun making my 20k mesos, even though to most that is peanuts, to me, it was FUN.

    Might I add we start out broker than broke, and if we want to sell a lvl 14 staff, what is the harm in that? I loved checking to see if another player listed a staff better than mine (so I can BUY it and improve myself), and btw, this is coming from a player with 6 characters that none are 50 or 60 yet, and I take my time, I do all the cool stuff, but now no black market. Phhhhhht. I pay for premium; yet a limit on selling? Makes zero sense.

    Just permaban the bots already, and bring back basic functions like the Black Market and chat for everyone.

    Just make it easier to report Meso Sellers, ban their accounts and ban bot programs. Those of us who just play the game already have enough to deal with. I don't socialize with any on my server other than those in my own Real Life house, can't it cost Merits to speak with others, so I live on a fixed income and can't afford any of that sort of thing. I may be able to break with $5 a month to buy a few Merits, which brings to mind aren't we dealing in Crypto Currency. You spend real life cash to buy NZ which is by admission a Crypto Currency, why do the middleman thing, just buy Merits straight and not go through the hassle?
