Made this from scratch since the forum updated. Started this about 3 months ago, finally got it to the forum.
TL;DR: Press x button successfully inside of time Z to successfully tame the mount, the buttons and popup times varies according to the familiars Level and Grade

Since everybody been crying about forever how bad the taming RNG is and how it should changed to, here it is .
As you can see from those (especially the "RNG"'s "R" youtubelink, such bs), people have been crying a lot how bad, broken, stupid and unfair the current taming system is.
It has been said to be "the worst RNG system in the life of my MMORPG gaming, and believe me, i've played lots of games".
It has been said to be "the end of this game" (somehow)
I have seen people crying over it on the forums, in the Discord and in the game a lot.
People have been talking how it is wrong and how to fix this by making X change.
Yet i have seen only 1 mention-worth playermade suggestion to replace it. The idea was stomped in the forums. No suggestion have been made after that.
So Why people won't make nay other suggestion than the QQ ones if they want things changed?
Don't they have time (i can understand that) or are they just plain lazy?

Let me lend this picture, i had started this project before this got posted:

(Thank you neMes1s|Alex for that)

So now here and now i'll present you the new taming system!
"It's like Guitar Hero but with mounts!" or perhaps "It's like Osu! but with only keyboard buttons!"
Yes, you quessed it, the infamous "buttonspam".
Now, As the First Notice, this is designed to QWERTY keyboard with a-z alphabets only.
And secondly, this is 10% luck, 20% skill, 15% concentrated power of will, 5% pleasure, 50% pain and 100% reason to learn to tame.
Uhm i mean 10% RNG and 90% skill, of course.

Wait what wut? Really?
Yes, and it's real. Took me about 5 min to find all the links, another 5 min to gather all the data and 10 minutes to develop this completely.
not really, about 40h of working for the whole thing from scratch

So what does it do then?
All you need to do is press buttons, yes i know, that thing again, but this time many buttons around the keyboard.
With this new mechanic, the pressed keys varies according to the Familiars Level and Grade.
Example, Level 5 Common Familiar has only 4 different keys to press, when Level 50 Legendary Familiar has 22 different keys to press to in order to tame the familiar.

What else changes
Everything dCLn448.png

So how it's going to change then?
The new mechanic works like this after you have hopped onto the mount:

Before you have to start to press buttons, you are given 2 seconds of time to prepare yourself. After it, you have X seconds of time to tame the mount.
The times vary based on the familiars Rank like this:
- Commons : 10 seconds
- Elite : 15 seconds
- Heroic : 20 seconds
- Legendary : 25 seconds


By succesfully pressing one (1) button, you will get 1BP% to the bar
(1BP% = (100/ButtonsPress) + (PressTime-(PressTime/LevelAbove))

If you miss the time or you press the wrong button, you will get 1MBP% to the red bar:
(1MBP% = (MaxTamingTime - ( 100/ButtonsPressed) + (PressTime-)PressTime/LevelAbove)))) /2

Some regulations to the levels
Only 1-1 buttons can be highlighted at the same time when mount is under level 40 and is Elite or lower.
1-2 buttons can be highlighted at the same time when mount is between levels 41-50 and is Elite or Heroic.
1-3 buttons can be highlighted at the same time when mount is between levels 51-60 and is Heroic and higher.


Times vary based on the familiars Grade and Rank

    Level 50-54 Familiar key press time: 0,60 seconds.

    Level 50-54 Familiar key press time: 0,55 seconds.
    Level 55-60 Familiar key press time: 0,50 seconds.
    etc.

(LevelAbove)
- If player tries to tame a Familiar more than 15 levels above from players level, the key press times are X(level)-1/2 less (e.g. 2,0s -> 1,0s)
- If player tries to tame a Familiar more than 10 levels above from players level, the key press times are X-1/3 less (e.g. 2,0s -> 1,3s)
- If player tries to tame a Familiar more than 5 levels above from players level, the key press times are X-1/4 less (e.g. 2,0s -> 1,5s)
- If player tries to tame a Familiar more than 3 levels above from players level, the key press times are X-1/5 less (e.g. 2,0s -> 1,6s)
- If player tries to tame a Familiar more than 1 level above from players level, the key press times are X-1/10 less (e.g. 2,0s -> 1,80s)
- If player tries to tame a Familiar same or lower level than Him, there is no penalty (e.g. 2.0s -> 2.0s)

So what are the buttons per level ratio and so on?
At the level 1-9 common, you would have to successfully press 4 buttons.
The higher the level the Familiar is, the more buttons you need to press.
Also, the higher the Grade is, the more buttons you need to press.


The buttons shown below are

secret messages

Thank you reading this wall o'text, the original idea wasn't going to be as long as this, had some variables, and now it's like this. I only wonder why i got all these ideas while drunk.
Now, discuss my people since this has been made! If you have something to change/add (especially the math and pressable keys), don't be afraid to say it!

TL;DR: Press x button successfully inside of time Z to successfully tame the mount, the buttons and popup times varies according to the familiars Level and Grade

    Well ... not well for me, sorry :-)

    In your poll, add two options: "Yes, but what has this to do ...." and "No, but what has this to do ..." THEN I will submit my choice. :-)

    Now to your suggestion: I can manage the four keys, and think I could manage them in shorter time, too. There is another game with the same taming buttons, but much quicker to be pressed (no RNG red/green). I could manage it there, too.

    However, I know that I would never manage 22 keys. And you want to do them even in shorter time??? Definitely nothing for my poor eye-brain-hand-coordination!

    No, because people that lag would never tame anything, at least with the current system, they have a chance. Not to mention that sounds way too easy. There should be no guarantee.

    To anyone that complains about the taming: RNG is RNG, just get back up, dust yourself off, wipe away your tears, and try again. It wasn't designed to always tame, especially if the familiar is near your level. It doesnt matter that you spent [x] amount of gold, time or both, nor how bad you think you deserved the mount. It's the nature of the game.

    You might want to redo some of the button press time, finding and pressing one of 22 buttons in 0.5 sec is next to impossable unless you got your finger on it.

    But the real question as always, how much would we need to pay nexon to implement something that did not come or has been from KR ...
