This is a review of a player who has been playing C9 for 7 years :
I've spent sooooo many hours in PvP and never get tired of it. Stuff didn't mean much in PvP, I've often killed players lv54-57 with lv 42 shadow, as you can infinite combo if you're good enough. And enhancement levels were not effective in PvP. (Yay !)
But. Let's be more realistic and honest.
C9 is the best PvP game I've played so far. And I'm still in search of a new game like C9.
The iFrame / super armor / semisuper armor was clearly identified by white/red/blue aura, the combo was complicated enough to make it thrilling, all character were equal and so it was possible to get good fights from any class against any other class.
Easy to play, hard to master.
Like any fighting-based game is supposed to be.
Until they released the mystic class.
After the gunner event (understand this as half the player leaving the game), the game hardly get anymore players. And they killed the balance between classes with Mystic classes : Battle Maiden and Valkyrie, and with no reason except getting money from a dying game, buffed the warrior and the slayer beyond imagination. I've played ALL classes more than 100h in PvP, and guardian for 6 years, but I've been sorry to see my warrior and my slayer evolving into godlike characters.
BUT, it was still enjoyable, and still the best game I've played so far. There were still funny fights !
And then, they released Nightmare Set. Yay... Stuff now matters in PvP, as you can't kill other highly geared players if you don't have enough stuff yourself. There is a percentage of getting HP back when you're attacked, making low-leveled weapons ineffective.
AAAANNNNND.... I still recommand this game. If you're playing with friends, you'll spend many hours in PvP having fun and laughs you cannot stop.
But don't even try to be competitive anymore, it's a waste of money.
1. the drop rate to low.
2. to many hacker
3. bad item mall system
4. the exp rate is low
5. bad management company
C9 is great game, if you like hack and slash, with MMO feel. Probably best free option out at the moment in this genre honestly.
Sun online is closing down so c9 is next because webzen lacks sufficient skill to actually support a game without trying to milk every costumer with cs items when the whole thing with games in general is trying to appeal to the public rather then themselves but hey if I was to rate this game it would be a 3/10 but only because webzen stinks at supporting the community and only cares about there own profit.
Webzen and gpot are exactly the same and asian web company people need to learn to interact with global in general rather then there asian counter parts... It shows ignorance when we try to ask them to talk to us but I guess gathering a american team to talk to others that don't speak the language is hard to do. Webzen are people who don't know how to manage a game so if you do play get ready for company disappointment at its finest.
But the game dont have the tinny things other does, like mounts, pets, guild system is not that great, well for me it got boring after 2 months ;).
I have tried all of classes and shadow seemed like most balanced for PvP and PvE as well.
Its kinda different from Vindictus.In Vindictus mobs are always recycled.In C9 that is not the case.
Graphics are really amazing,gameplay is fast and filled with action.bosses are awesome,and the story itself.There is a special Hell mode for 3 dungeons,Which is really hard but has some valuable rewards,in terms of special set equips which will grant you not only better stats than regular,but also skill improvment.I can freely say the mechanics and gameplay are much better than Vindictus.
I would recomend anyone who loves good action to try C9.
You wont regret it!
Starting at the very beginning, the download time is atrocious, and I have an excellent internet connection. This is a game you leave to download while you're gone at school or work. The installation is average length for any MMO, so it's not an entirely ridiculous process. When all was said and done, I couldn't get the game started. Some files appeared to be missing and my Google search to find help proved fruitless as the forums were down for maintenance. However, a long file check (simply by pressing the "Check" button on the launcher) fixed the problem and the game launched without a hitch.
The graphics in this game are amazing. The hair texture is a little painful to look at sometimes, but the world is vivid and the characters are colorful, smooth and easy on the eye. Well, except for the crazy body on the witchblade. That chick was made for fanservice, no doubt, with her porn star body and lack of clothing, and even using the slider in character creation to make her chest smaller does nothing to change it. Regardless, the C9 is very nicely polished.
Now, the best part. The gameplay. Immediately I noticed how similar C9 was to Vindictus and Dragon Nest, and that's a GOOD thing. Combat is fluid and very easy to learn. Dungeons are listed by level and difficulty, in their own instances. You attack and turn the camera with the mouse while firing off hotbar combos, making everything you do in-the-moment. There is absolutely NONE of the usual MMO-style fighting where you select a target and go through your number keys until it's dead, then select another target... To say you get involved is an understatement. This is a game where you will pay attention to everything you do, every skill you use and every movement you make, with keen interest. There is no stopping playing any time you want during an instance. You run through it entirely or you abandon it and go back to town. You receive letter grades in different categories based on how you do during an instance , and get to select surprise rewards at the end. Suddenly I want to play Dragon Nest again...
There are class upgrades for each, one initial "elite" upgrade at level ten, and then a full class change at level 20. There are three to four subclasses for each, with more on their way. The warrior and ranger classes are predictable with their upgrades and become the standard melee, tanking, ranged DPS, and assassin types, but don't let names like shaman or witchblade turn you away from the girls. Their names are a bit deceiving. Shaman is the main magic DPS class, and branches off into summoner (Illusionist), quick melee with a magic splash (Taoist), or even more magic DPS (Elementalist). Witchblades are dual-wielding, focused-on-crit types. They use some ice spells, but are very focused on using their blades. Their upgrades involve using more ice magic with less melee (Warden) or more acrobatic-focused slashing (Slayer/Blade Dancer).
All in all, I would recommend C9. Not heavily, but I recommend it. It has its ups and its downs and I've enjoyed playing it so far. If you have the patience to deal with a bit of trouble at first, definitely give it a go.
Pls Reply ASAP coz this game looks Amazing
