Trials are only good IMO if they give full access to the site. Its fine if they limit downloads, but if they limit what you can see, thats horseshit. I joined a site for a trial a few weeks ago, and it only gave me access to one site in the entire fucking network, and absolutely no access to the others. If it was any good I may have stayed, but I wasnt going to blow money trying to find out.
Id personally rather see it upgraded to be on par with top notch networks like NA and Brazzers, but since that will probably never happen, I wouldnt care if that did happen, because I will never give that company another cent unless they show some kind of miraculous improvement.
My experience WAS positive for the most part until the last week or so (I lowered the score about 12 points since this happened). Then alot of the vidoes started going haywire on me. If it were just a few videos I wouldnt care, but it has been at least 30 scenes I went through that had this shit happen.
If its not happening to you, cool...but its happening to me. And as I said...I tried different media players and tried other files, and nothing indicates that the problem is on my end. They are the only ones Im having issues with.
Let me add that I dont dislike the hardcore action. I actually really like it. The sex really isnt much different from what you see on NA or RK. Most of their sex really isnt "nasty" sex. The main difference is the production value. Karups hardcore stuff is right to the point...no real lead up...just gonzo porn for the most part. That honestly doesnt bother me that much because the action on Karups, for the most part, is good. The bland settings and the overall cheapness of the scenes is my issue. Like I said, they do all their scenes in basically the same place and it just feels really cheaply done. Even if they are mainly a picture site, they are still offering this, and I think they should put a bit more effort into it.
The download manager issue isnt a huge deal, but I tried on both Chrome and Firefox with 3 different DMs and it didnt work, so I just did the "save as" method.
And the playing the files in parts isnt my issue. Its having to download each part individually that annoys me...especially since my DM didnt work there.
Anyway...my score of 78 I think is still solid. As I said, I think any fan of the genre should consider giving it a month, but as you alluded to, depending on specific preferences, its another story how long certain people might wanna stay for.
There are currently 1470 models on there that I calculated.
Agree to disagree on the network front. Im not complaining about it too much. Just saying that is what keeps me from staying longer than a month, because other places offer multiple sites for cheaper, and has more hardcore video stuff.
I LIKE pictures, but they certainly arent my main attraction. And considering they videos are a step below other sites...thats why my score is below what you guys give it.
Like I said, its a good site, and possible a great site for you picture hounds. For me...its a site worth checking out, but not a site Id be a regular member of like I am with other sites.
Like I said, I did still factor the quality photos into my score. I suppose someone who is into photos more would still be more lenient with their grading, though.
To be honest, the site just feels outdated in many ways. While they do have good content, the Karup sites feel like they are 3 or so years behind the curve compared to other sites. Whether its video quality, production value or just the site design and navigation.
Hard to say, but I have several of the videos on there and have never been a member of that site.
I wasnt dogging the site or even the review in general, but when I saw "orignal content", I expected to see, you know...ORIGINAL content...meaning stuff they produce themselves thats exclusive to the their site and company. Not scenes that I can get elsewhere.
But like I said...SOME MAY be original, but didnt look that way to me.
Not sure what you are getting at. I never once claimed what you said wasnt accurate or that you werent entitled to your opinion. I simply said that NA is what it is, and they arent going to change. Ive been a member of NA for years and have requested new things, yet they do everything pretty much the same. Alot of things have improved, but they are still extremely straightfoward, but Id rather have that than a bunch of anal and DP stuff.
And actually, my comment wasnt even directly aimed at your review, but in general based on some of the stuff I read in the comments section.
I respect if you didnt like the site, but this is what NA is, for better or worse. They are like the Playboy of hardcore porn. They are straight forward and yes, pretty vanilla, but thats personally how I like it. One of the commenters said that things need to change...in some ways they do, but not everyone wants to see anal and DPs....I personally hate both....so NA is great for my tastes, and for many others as well.
If its not your thing, so be it. There are alot of sites that cater to the things you seem to like.
Seriously? I guarantee they dont have Brazzers beat on fake tits. The reason I am no longer at Brazzers is because thats all they use. NA does use a good bit, but at least they use girls like Victoria Lawson, India Summers, Lizzy London, etc.... often and not just all big fake tit girls like Brazzer always does outside of their teen site.
And to be fair, most of the girls in the industry have big fake tits, especially the ones based out of Cali, where NA shoots. Bang Bros and RK shoot mostly in Florida I believe, which is why they rack up alot of amateurs that dont have boob jobs.
Anyway, not trying to change your mind...just wanted to bring up a few points. Although I think Btazzers, NA and RK are all quality sites, I think BangBros is awful and has been for years. To each their own, though.
No...Live shows are no longer part of NA, but you cant really blame them. While alot of people liked the Live shows, there wasnt quite enough interest and thus incoming revenue to keep it going. The cost to do those Live shows isnt cheap so they had to cut their losses.
I personally dont care for Live shows, but I know alot of people like them. Doubt they come back to NA though.
I recommend you contact their customer service or visit their message board, Naughty Country Club. They have issues once in awhile, but the customer service and tech team resolves it quickly in most cases. Good luck.
I post on the NA message board and talk to the staff. We were told that 13 updates is the norm and thats the way its been going for months. Maybe they dont say it on the membership page officially, but it was basically an unofficial confirmation.
And as I said, I dont care that they are doing this, but it is a drastic change, and while NA may not be a top site in your mind, it is (or at least was) to me. Maybe not always and maybe not in terms of video quality, but my tastes are pretty simple and they have always delivered quality scenes, in a timely manner, and were for the most part very interactive with the fans.
My biggest issue with them is that they make decisions to change the website and never give a heads up. Are they required to? No, but its good for business to let your customers know of any changes that may be coming.
You keep telling me about how other sites/artists/etc do this....does that make it okay? Its just away to make more money, and in NA's case, its a way to SAVE money so they dont have to shoot NEW scenes.
And on top of that, there is a huge difference. I paid a membership expecting one thing, but all of sudden, they cut the updates one week and say, "Oh, we cut updates without telling you so we can remaster scenes". People have the option of going out and buying new albums.
And your logic is incredibly flawed. McDonalds doesnt guarantee breakfast, but if they were to just take that off the menu completely one day because they wanted to focus on improving the regular menu, do you think people would be mad? Do you think they would have the right to be?
And Ill take that part down about the download limits. I copied and pasted alot of the stuff that I wrote in my new review.
I dont think you do understand. It boils down to this...I paid for a membership (full price) under the pretense that there would be regular updates (13 per week, as we were told before). I wasnt told before my membership that that would change. If I had been, I wouldve rethought my membership, but if I did decide to stay on as a member, at least it was my decision to pay for membership knowing what was coming.
Even if they are remastering the scenes, it is still the same scene. Maybe its in better definition, but its still the exact same scene. This isnt like actual Hollywood movies with awesome special effects that I really want to see in high definition. Ive seen the scene before...if they want to redo the videos, thats all good, but when they start taking away NEW updates, especially without notifying anyone of what they are doing, that is BS. At least let us know its coming ahead of time instead blindsiding people.
Its more a matter of poor customer service and false advertising than it is them taking away updates. I expect that from crappy rip off sites...not NA.
My problem isnt that they are remastering old videos at all. I have absolutely no problem with that. What I dont like it that it is coming at the expense of newer updates. Redoing old videos should be an added perk. When I joined, I did so because I was told there would be 13 new scenes per week. I dont consider making old material better an official update. And to be honest, its not like NA's DVD quality is much better than the MPEG quaility of alot of these scenes. Some of the MUCH older scenes will look better, but some of the not so old scenes that are only in MPEG...its not much of a difference IMO.
On top of all that, they do these things without so much as a whisper to their customers that it is coming. Just saying.
