  1. yasfan added a post in a topic I'd like to get to PVP, but you've put it behind the biggest PVE grindwall ever constructed.   

    BDO has breeding, therefore it is also a breeding game.

  2. yasfan added a post in a topic Ending the level 10 node debate   

    "RNG-based" just means that there is a random number generator that outputs a pseudorandom number, which is then checked against a threshold probability of success to determine whether a process succeeds or fails.
    It does not mean that the probability of success for rare drops is the same at all node investment levels.

    This is a totally new topic and has not been thoroughly debunked already.

  4. yasfan added a post in a topic REMOVE THE JAIL-SYSTEM   

    Actually, this is a MMORPG--a virtual world simulator. And in the world that this game is trying to simulate, going around killing people outside of the context of war is a crime.
    As the same thing is true in the real world, you should have no difficulty understanding this concept.
    That is why characters are supposed to be punished for open-world PvP.

  5. yasfan added a post in a topic China will force games with loot boxes to publicly expose their drop rates and probabilities   

    That's a fair point, although you'd have to be insane to spend cash on them for use as dyes when you can get Merv's Palette.
    Wow, those dots you're connecting are a long way away from why cash shop luckyboxes are widely viewed as predatory.

    I care what's in our localization, and the players in other localizations can care what's in their localizations according to their own cultural preferences and priorities.

  7. yasfan added a post in a topic Unable to move things around in Warehouse   

    If your items are in slots that have expired, you need to click and drag them to slots that have not expired in order to move them. Until you do so, you won't be able to move new things in and so on. Simply having empty slots in the warehouse isn't enough, you need to move the items from expired slots into them.
    I hope this helps!

  9. yasfan added a post in a topic China will force games with loot boxes to publicly expose their drop rates and probabilities   

    To their credit, BDO has largely avoided cash shop gambleboxes. Still, this kind of regulation is long-overdue.
    Las Vegas casinos have to post their odds. Retailer sweepstakes have to post their odds. Lotteries have to post their odds. All of those business practices continue to thrive in spite of this common-sense regulation to make sure that consumers who want to be informed can be.
    Why video games have gotten away with it for as long as they have is beyond me.
    Here's hoping that China proves to be a trend-setter on this one.

  10. yasfan added a post in a topic Why is there no increasing res timer for being killed by the same person?   

    May I suggest that the title of the thread would more accurately present the situation if it were changed to this:
    Why don't they give you increasing penalties when the same person kills you over and over?

    This is the funniest statement I've seen all month.

  12. yasfan added a post in a topic Cannot sell for true minimum price -- cannot play game   

    Why can't you do anything until your items on the market sell? I ask because I have had some items take a long time to sell, but that has never interfered with my ability to play the game.

  13. yasfan added a post in a topic Do you think BDO will last long enough?.   

    I suppose it's possible that we might get the dozen or two players who refuse to play games with built-in anti-cheat protection.
    On the other hand, since most of them refuse to play games with built-in anti-cheat protection because they want to cheat, so I'm not sure we really want them that much.

    This game will almost certainly continue to get support and active development for another year. The Kamasylva update is still coming, as is a new class.
    I'm betting the next MMORPG to curl up and die will do so this year, but that game is published by NCSoft, not Kakao.
