    I was running around shouting 'NOTICE ME SENPAI'... Senpai didn't notice me...

    I think it's funny how more people in Veritas killed me as a spectator than LotD, Flex, and FoE combined.
    You guys need to L2War. Rather, L2Collateral Damage.

    Not likely, as he is a representative of the company making the decision.
    I appreciate you poking your head out of the trenches, was getting a little worried Pearl Abyss had stuffed you into a hole somewhere. Good luck, @PM_Jouska. You're gonna' need it.

    May we shitpost into the sunset.
    @War, @Runick, @Toxicle, @realistic1, @Agentile, @Freelancer, @Rubenator: It has been an honor meme'ing with you.

    @PM_Jouska, you must see the fire by now. Nearly 90 pages, over 2,000 replies, protests in game, streamers and Youtubers actively decrying this, polls/petitions/suggestions flying around, and all in just over 7 hours.
    We need something here. We need to know what's happening. Please, tell us what's going on! How are you guys going to handle this?

    People are addressing the issue, but they aren't articulating it well. Let's see if I can summarize the general consensus:
    Real money to silver transactions mean people can gain an advantage by dumping money into the gamePeople feel lied to because they feel this monetizing method is pay2winThe trend thus far confirms (subjectively) their fears of a downward spiral (b2p -> expensive cash shop -> pseudo monthly sub -> real money to silver)They fear this will lead to F2P P2W style games like Blade and SoulThey fear this decision will force a lot of their friends outHowever, given @PM_Jouska's tone, I don't think Kakao wants this either. This sounds like "Please complain as loud as you can" to me.
    Let's see where this goes.

    You're right, this is entirely subjective. The whole point of this thread is to voice our concerns, so opinions are not out of place here. There's no denying that this is a way to convert real money into in game silver. Let's agree on that. Buy costume -> Put on market -> Get silver. Pretty cut and dry. You can make all of the rationalizations you like, saying that RNG will still be a wall, let's see how much they limit this, you can just put in the work the old fashioned way... It's still an unpopular decision. Look at this thread, we have almost 1000 responses already. If that's not public outcry on a whole new level I don't know what is. So even if you want to make the petty argument that this isn't "Pay 2 Win" because you're not actually "winning" anything, that's fine. You may have your semantics and technicalities, but you're not addressing the core of the problem in that this is real money -> in game money. At least stick with the spirit of the argument instead of attacking subjective definitions.
    The bottom line is I play this game to compete alongside my friends. If my friends leave, so do I.

    I'ma have to agree with everyone's sentiment here. This is a really really bad move. Not only is this committing market suicide, you may actually have legal action brought against you for it. This is very clearly a bait and switch, no matter how you limit this kind of in game transaction. It is paying real money to directly convert it to in game money. Full stop. Daum's entire marketing point was that this game would not go P2W, and that was largely held up.
    This is a very very bad idea...

    This thread is now a minion appreciation thread.
    GO!
    I'd like to thank @Runick for all of the work he has done, great job with the Sanic meme.

    If you fail to understand the idea that you, as an inquirer, can have your motives and reasons questioned, then you don't deserve a response.
    With that, I guess I'll get back to my shitposting in other threads. Because screw me for posting in a public forum on a public thread that is accessible to the public in which there are no rules against me posting.

    There is no reason at all to disbelieve it. I don't believe in any patch notes anywhere in either KR or NA was it ever mentioned that the odds for enchantment were changed (forcing notwithstanding).

    I listed 3 separate claims you made: Freelancer is using other forum posters as minions, Freelancer and TL thing (Most of the evidence from the TL site is either hearsay or the sites have been taken down so I cannot confirm), Freelancer has a "long history of unethical behavior". I am asking you to substantiate them. You have not, and have now avoided it twice from myself, and other times from other posters as well. If you won't validate your own claims, then why should anyone have to respond to you?
    I don't know how to make that any more clear. Please validate the above claims you have made. If you are more than just a forum troll and you actually are seeking something from this charade, then you will only stand to gain by validating your stance. So, why not?

    Or perhaps these claims?

    This is fun!

    No, they can certainly speak to their experience. However, it should be treated as a single datapoint, and not to be taken as properly researched and documented statistics. In addition, the fact that you and others in this thread have experience that don't align with what the chart indicates is not statistically relevant as the amount of people here is not a very big or verifiable sample size.
