  1. Golf clap. Lots of words to tell people something they already know. If they don't know this they don't have the intellect to understand your post. Shrug.


  2. And dont let the door hit you on the way out...unless it's your fingers so you can stop freakin typing!  Sick of all the 1%  naysayers and doomsday bs...get gone and let the other 99%  enjoy the game!  

    not sure how anyone can be tired of something they are not a part of. One post every 4 months and your sick of the naysayers and doomsday bs?


  3. you have a couple of bonues. 

    1. You dont really need to fail stack to level your gear. At least not much. They did something to enchanting a month or so back so stuff levels very easily. (RNG you could get unluck like I did last night and got 17 stacks trying to get to 12).

    2. You can get to 55 without much difficulty.

    3. World bosses dont 1 shot near as often so you have a real shot at getting Liverto/zarka drops if you show up.

    4. Night vendor to buy stones cheap and get boss armor. (Save up 200mil silver asap no small feat i Know).

    You can get up to speed i work a full time job and I never grind hard and i 'm 57 with Pri accessories duo gear  and try liverto.

    Join a good guild and enjoy the game. You own it, you dont have to pay another dime.


  4. You didn't predict shit.  And Polls are showing otherwise with just as many of us on  hiatus 

    Try getting out of Heidel, maybe you'll notice it too if you're not too inept at observations

     

    I have to agree look at the numbers on the top 10 guilds on your server they will be filling the slots fast but most lost about 20 percent. Personally I am stil watching to see if the cost of pearl items rises. At the moment the people selling stuff on the market, which is somehow a lot, are mental.


  5. Some how, I just don't agree with that.

    I think it was PM_Jouska who updated the announcement and suddenly everyone who was against it, immediately used that against him. To me, no words can clarify the situation other than only to be ended up making it worst. It was wise, including all the mods and you guys as well, that they said no more after that.

    I'm just not sure how me they knew when he put the announcement out. I put it like this in VM chat. "It feels like the tossed a room full of teenagers loaded .45s  and said we'll be back after the weekend".


  6. Try doing a full relog after 8pm EST server reset. Just a theory. Like close and reopen. also it comes in the mail.


  7. Do your job mister moderator. Consolidate the obviously QQ threads.

    And everyone who wants to inform Kakao of your opinion, tag them. 

    This forum has lost its civility by a bunch of proxy. 


     

    I actually dont have a merge feature.

    The dropped the bomb a week early so everything would calm down a bit before they implement it. 

    Also!, what they said was rubbish! if they want people to experience cash shop items who can't afford it, put a quest line in the game that rewards them with some cosmetic stuff..lol their reasoning is idiotic and only morons would believe they care about the community. They just want the monies!

    Agree that isn't even good smoke and mirrors they could just sell the item with an optional silver amount directly bypassing players. If access was the issue and not milking us.

  8. Has anyone considered that that thread was made just to create the storm that it did before put that into the game. I mean how many of the **** storms that we went through since beta were we warned about in advance?


  9. The analogy is flawed. I have 3 buffet style restaurants in my town. 1 servers quality food every time and offer an upsale 2 days a week of stake and Crab legs. The parking lot has been full for 10 years. The only time they closed was for a hurricane. The other 2 serve crap for cheep and you get sick randomly when you eat there. They have changed hands at least once a year. 

    Moral: treat people with respect and give them a quality product to eat and they will come to your tables and stay. Give them crap no mater how fast you dish it out they will eventually get sick and you will have to fold.

  10. It reminds me of the following quote:

    "... what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I've ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response was there anything that could even be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul!"

    LOL why do i recognize the quote. And I mostly agree. The use of Play to Win was killing me.

    alright I got it. I only post this is answer the question it is not directed by me at anyone:

  11. Very well thought out and written post.

    I too am one of those older employed gamers who started playing online in the late 90s and played ALL those MMOs you mentioned.

    I am not a supporter of a p2w system. I am, however, a supporter of paying a monthly subscription and paying for expansions.

    So whereas I do agree that the developers need to make money, I do not agree that implementing a p2w environment is the best way to go.

    We'll see come the patch. But just as an example, in the other regions where BDO has been out longer those costumes sell for between 88 million silver to 101 million silver. And that, my friend, would negatively impact gameplay. Simply put, it would give players the ability to purchase rare powerful gear outright with little to no effort. And regardless of what anyone will tell you, gear trumps skill in BDO.

    Sadly the P2W micro transactions have made game companies lazy. Only a few like Blizzard hare smart enough to created regular real content and sell only cosmetic and convince items. The best at it atm seems to be SWTOR who'd i'd still be playing if it wasn't a single player game since the last patch.

  12. Eh, when I was a kid I used the sneakers my parents bought me for you know.. walking, we played in a forest so no obv no1 mowed it, didn't even have goals so we used trees as posts.. and uh referees? really? So the only real expense was having 1 ball for a dozen kids, horribly costly entertainment. Idk where you grew up man but I wish I had your entitled childhood, making me jelly

    RIght you played for free in a free environment. We payed for the game the rest is as free as we want it. I do not support the idea of cash shop sails though. I played on an overgrown field myself or we mowed it to make a play field. I'm old like the OP so I can appreciate a lot of what they say but todays children didnt invent P2W.


  13. OP is what we call a "baby boomer" :)

    Not correct Baby boomers are mainly dead they were born after WWII a flood of babies born after johnny came marking home again.

    Gen x.


  14. It's simple really, old man. It's a hobby. When I go out and play football with my friends I don't throw money on the goalkeepers face to let me score. 

    That's is because your mom and dad bought you sneekers, a Soccer ball(football), paid taxes to have the field mowed and paid a fee to have referees moderate the game. You prove his point. Your mom and dad pay for it so to you it is free so you assume there is not cost for your entertainment. That said the post made my brain hurt. P2W is PAY to Win not Play to Win. Play to win is what most early sub games were as the only, only way to get gear and money was to play the game. Then later buy it from gold sellers (pay to win). Our generation started that long before most of these people were born.

    The real rise of pay to win though was app games. Once companies saw that people would pay large amounts of money for little work on their end the age for the Sub MMO was at an end. Sad.


  15. Is it just me or the same 10 people discussing the same issue in 5 or 6 different posts?
