    The regular game version never had it in the first place. EU is now simply the same as what all other servers get.

    Is there any possibility we can petition the combo system back or something?
    It was one of the main aspects of the game i found most enjoyable.

    The Combo-system was part of the XE version.
    It was a great idea, rewarding those that play good, but a bit broken and imbalanced.

    PRE should get combo, but it should be revamped and istead of giving quite big damage boost should give more gold or exp or AP (something not game breaking)

    Why not instead of getting a damage buff, players get a damage reduction when they get hit and can only restore it with hitting things?
    I've always thought XE's combo bonus promoted non lazy play, but a free exquisite damage pot is just bonkers.

    They could maybe reintroduce the XE combat stuff after rebalancing it a bit, as a "groove" or "style". Something that can be toggled in town/on boat through the skills or character menu so you can have two different experiences going into battles.

    Like this:
    PREmiere mode: 100% base damage, no change from current PRE stuff.
    XtremE mode: 90% base damage, combo system and XE invuln moves enabled, up to 110% damage at full combo.

    I don't really like the combo system itself, but I like the design of having XE moves working as a sacrifice towards preserving combo, if that makes any sense. The animations for them are really cool too, it's sad to see them go unused now.

    Increase boss HP by 50%, so good players who don't get hit will have the same clear time, while bad players will be slower and hopefully learn to play.

    Alternatively they could just reinstate the old def cap so people can't just shrug off hits.

    I guess you weren't aware that you were the only region still clinging the the broken combo system.

    As if the United States as a whole and its 300 million people collectively had anything to do with this merge. Complain about nexon, not an entire country.

    KR has removed their XE for years and apparently Nexon KR don't bother to develop/support XE anymore, you should know this day will come eventually.

    It was obviously the work of Trump and Russian spies.

    The Chinese version of Vindictus still has combos and XE moves. The American version has always been the lame version. I really wish the migration went in the opposite direction. Shut down NA and move everyone to EU.

    I don't believe this to be true.

    Also, we should shut down everyone and move everyone to KR. +yes

    EDIT: nvm, found out it's true lol.

    Lol when we take up tribalistic attitudes when talking about a goddamn video game instead of rationally discussing merits of different game designs, you know the human race is f'ed. This is as retarded as sports fans arguing their team, which just COINCIDENTALLY is from the place they currently live, is better.
