The lack of care for anything but everybody's individual best interests and opinions is palpable. The fact that people are saying (quite literally) that the only thing that keeps PVP interesting or fun or rewarding for them, or helps them, is the exp loss, with a select few even going so far as to say it's the only thing they care about most in PVP period or other very personal, near-IRL focused comments, etc, is worrisome. Not for the game. Not for the patch notes. I'm not even looking at that anymore. I'm looking at the actual IRL thought patterns and mentality of individuals behind the anonymity of a computer screen.
And I'm thanking his noodliness that such people are at the very least utilizing their psyche issues in an online manner as opposed to what chaos would ensue if such outlets did not exist, because I seriously think they need help. Psychological help. Because IMHO people are not born with an innate need to cause others harm, regardless of if it's just in a game or not. If that's the only way they feel on equal footing or feel good about the experience, I worry for them. I truly do. I'm not saying they're horrible people or anything like that. Quite the contrary. They're, to me, troubled and in need of help. Not disdain. But it's help the internet cannot give, unfortunately, and I'm not quite sure they even want.
That said, I do have to admit that if that's the way people want to play, they should be able to I suppose. But the restriction here is trying to please everyone and ending up pleasing no one or going back and forth a lot because there's only so much a single-server-type setup can accommodate. Which is exactly why having a dedicated PVE server (that involved no PVP barring innate and important game mechanics such as guild nodes, due to how integral a part of the core BDO system they are - scratching those if it could feasibly be done even but I doubt it and I think the core idea of those would be fun to some) and a dedicated PVP server (with as much excessive death loot, lose exp, lose life exp, lose your home, lose your horse, lose levels, whatever you want mechanics to console the masses of interested people as possible) would be an incredibly fair and perfect setup. Not only this, but then everyone would be playing with like-minded people, thus creating a more positive atmosphere across the board.
I dream of the day this reiterated idea becomes a reality for BDO. I've thoroughly enjoyed the game so far and will continue to do so. It's the first MMO I've played in a long while that has brought me out of my shell enough to do something such as join a guild, be a part of a community, interact with other people and do group focused things in. Thank you, Daum, for the incredible, breathtaking experience. Keep doing what you're doing, and do consider the server idea at some point. It's best of both worlds for everyone. But if you can't or won't, for whatever reason, then I do feel you're going in the appropriate direction overall (for what could even be close to a middle ground in any way, which isn't saying much because again it's literally impossible to please everyone), and I for one (among many others drowned out in this thread) appreciate your efforts.
And P.S. My post is not meant to flame, insult, single out, or otherwise harm anyone whatsoever. My post is honestly just my thoughts and observations and hopes, and it's my one effort to garner some reflection from hopefully at least a few people. Introspection is important and sometimes when things get this heated you need to take a step back and think about what's so upsetting over pixels that you feel so emphatic and find it necessary to lash out at one another. Because at that point it may be time for a break.
I've used up my likes for the day. I want to give you all 10 tomorrow. PVE/PVP/RP separate servers are not hard to create and would solve all problems herein IMHO as well. Thank you so so much for pointing this out.
