BnS Gold: Costume Design Winner Announced!

The costume designing contest for Blade and Soul has recently come to a close and the winner has been announced! BnS gold swagger! It is revealed that user Yin Kuoi is the winner of this contest with, not one, but two costume designs for male and female bodies. This may have ultimately been the reason why this entry won as every other entry were only for a single gender or designed for both.

In a recent stream from Bethany Stout, or Liinxy as she’s known online, NCSoft’s Community Manager, was under a little bit of stress running the stream as she alt-tabbed to and fro from window to window. While it’s quite normal for mishaps to happen during any stream, one eagle-eyed observer caught a glimpse of how the emplyoees over at NCSoft actually play Blade and Soul. Yep, that’s right; even they use a latency-reducing program to run Blade and Soul and their other games. Blade and Soul Gold: Explains a Lot of the Unfixed Lag Since launch, tons of folks have been…
