    Doesnt matter. They have a bonus no matter how small it may be. If you really think it is alright ( again i dont think it is p2w ) you would be alright with removing the name hiding feature.

    Because others wont sell it because the production is not worth it. e.g. Fishing Boat / Noble Wagon.
    Giving away stuff is no problem as long as it is low value stuff and not sellable afterwards.
    Right now you have to be able to do EVERYTHING to do anything good. Want to be a great cook? Well have fun building a fishing boat, have high gathering, a farm, and hunting for killen whales. 
    It just means you can do whatever you want but whatever you want needs to you to do everything there is in the game.

    No but would i help a 5 man group fight a 5 man group or sneaking on to them when everyone has +15 gear?
    I dont say its p2w. But again i can understand the people that do.
    The whining will always be there and if EVERYONE of the pro ghilie faction agrees it doenst help why not just remove the bonus and end the disscussion forever?

    Whaling i know. Fishing on boats is the same as normal fishing. Naval Battle? Yeah i heard but not even KR has that ?
    Knowledge and seeing the areas is just that. I see them once and thats it. It doesnt make a game really deep. With this you could say BDO is deep because i can walk.
    I have seen most aspects i guess. I mainly cook and trade ( again the reason i play BDO ) i just dont see the unending depth everyone is telling us about.
    BDO i limiting itself in way to many ways. Why cant guild members help me craft stuff? Why cant they farm meat so i can cook a steak? 
    Why cant i find something valueable and sell it only to my guild ( same price / tax as marketplace )? 
    BDO could be more and people want to see it succeed. Right now it has some proffesions ( every game has ) and a great combat system. But no real PvE but on the other hand alot of PvP ( which we dont have right now ).

    A you need something no ones sells at all.
    B people would easily snipe it away.
    C Example. Necklace of good Deeds 20,8kk - 22,5kk.
    Lets make the Bracket a bit bigger for easier Numbers. 20kk - 23kk
    I would buy it for cheap ( and allow people to snipe it away ) for 20kk and resell it to gold sellers for 23kk. I would "gain" -5,05kk silver.
    Yeah i would abuse the shit out of it.

    Where is this deep unending depths exactly?
    You can build boats? Great but no naval battle.
    You can build wagons and trade? Same as a go from A to B quest to receive gold
    Crafting/cooking system? Would be great if it would not eat tons of energy OR if you could actually cook for others ( p2p trading )
    Combat system? Is nice yeah
    The mighty Dungeons ( even open world pvp/pve dungeons ) we dont have them.
    Fishing? Even WoW has that one.
    Farming? I agree is nice but only for afking
    Breeding horses? Again nice
    Guild sieges / Node Wars? We dont have them right now and this is mostly something for the big massguilds.
    BDO has alot of things to do i agree ( only reason i play it ) but limits it all and could be so much more.
    Imagine an ArcheAge without P2W and the BDO combat system ( take the best out of both ) THAT WOULD BE AWESOME AND DEEP.

    You couldnt because you always have to buy the cheapest one first + the brackets arent as big as that. Maybe 20k-30k and you would loose 35% of the 30k => less than 20k.

    Game is mostly gear based ( no not skill ). Someone with a +20 will annihilate entire guilds solo.
    The only question i am asking myself is:
    If it isnt p2w why not remove the bonus?
    Surely people are only buying it because of the look and not the bonus...

    I would also be okay with p2p trading but with market prices AND taxes.
    This would be the same as normal trading through the marketplace but would allow us to sell to players of our choice.

    You still cant test everything i a beta.
    The marketplace is good and nice but it has some serious downsides. 
    The good and bad side ist still the fixed prices.
    They wont allow a monopoly ( good ) but also make endproducts worthless enough that nobody wants to sell them ( bad ).
    You invest time and or energy to produce something new out of ressources but you lose value?
    In other games you just invest some time ( minutes not hours/days ) and no energy ( valueable ressource ) to produce something -> its okay that ressources are worth more.
    Here everybody has to build his stuff himself. Of course i could ask my friend to build me a Ship/Wagon etc. and put in into the market but they would lose millions doing this ( bad ) and it could get sniped away ( even worse ).
    What would be really nice would be the ability to directly sell something to a player / playergroup for the same price with the same taxes ( no downsides only pros )

    I see what you are getting at. But this players no being able to play is less of a problem here anyway. 
    1) Its pvp -> mass over class anytime
    2) Game is highly gear not skill based ( someone with full +20 weapons would easily grind 20+ guys in an instant even with low skills )
    3) again no raids or dungeons ( the things where low skill is really a problem )
    I wouldnt want a complete free trade system. But a system where i could work together with others to achieve something ( like craft high end ships/wagons etc. ) would be nice.

    You are right about that and i never said i wanted to. 
    And this is exactly why wrongly priced fixed prices are unhealthy. Yes i could become a fisher or a trader. BUT I COULD NEVER BUY A FISHING BOAT OR A NOBLE WAGON.
    Why? Its not worth to craft and sell because the ressources are worth shit tons more than the endproduct in the trading house.
    This means i have to be able to craft everything alone -> destroying the concept of a sandbox.

    Because of the boat gets to heavy it sinks a bit more into the water -> slowing down.

    There are always pros and cons to everything.
    Playertrading pro:
    would allow players to work together for something ( like crafting Noble Wagon *cough* sturdy pine plywood *cough* )gives more freedom to the playerwould be way better for a drop distributionPlayertrading cons:
    P2W market would give multiboxers more power ( more energy -> more silver -> more power but more character slots are doing the same thing )would allow some players to control the market if done incorrectlyThese are just some of the pros/cons.
    I think the biggest problem are the fixed prices. But not because they are fixed but because the price is taken out of nowhere.
    Most ressources are worth way more than end products ( e.g. fishing boat 1,5 million silver ) => wont ever get sold to the public -> bad
    Product prices should vary with the ressource prices.
     
    Doesnt even make remotely sense.
    PvE in BDO is a joke like seriously. I could even make my silver my afk fishing and buying equip later.
    BDO hat literaly no dungeons => you dont have to care about the skill and is mostly gear based -> grind/rnd to win instead of skill2win.
    I know what you mean by the people getting carried saw it often enough in wow / tera etc. but there is reason you can have and should have guilds.
