    he/she means (I think) that while they for example have a 3% chance of TET (just an example, okay?) in 100 tries they'll get it 3 times. Whereas you might have 200 tries thanks to cash shop silver, and therefore can get it 6 times. Idk, I could be wrong but that's what it sounds like to me. Not denying the times you'll fail, simply pointing out that you'll also succeed more since you have more total tries (or something like that?)

    You never capped the money though. IF you wanted more chances, you could use cash shop money/silver for accessories for example and then more money for AM. You'd have more chances and more shards than a none-paying person. Meaning you still have the advantage. Also, let's not forget your own free accessories from the events, for a few extra shards, although these might be too few to matter in the long haul. So no, it doesn't cancel out anything actually. 
    (PS: witch's can give 2 sharp, no? (might be some other accessory. Ik there's a few that does) 4-4.8x2=8-9.6 mill = barely any loss at all. Add in other mats (gold shards, plat etc or w/e the accessory you buy gives when melted/heated) and you could even go plus).

    *cough* heating/melting high-end accessories for shards is reliable without much RNG *cough* 
    *cough* lots of said accessories on marketplace due to event after event giving them *cough*

    This would work only if you were to put back the card into the deck again which normally you would not do, meaning you did not reset the % chance of drawing a king. When you draw a card, the common thing is to remove it from the deck, not re-add it  
    In a coin toss, the result is ALWAYS the same, as the heads/tails side of a coin are not removable (unless you know... for some reason the side were to disappear, which I guess could happen if you copied the other side so it had the same side on both sides? 2 tails or 2 heads for example. In this case it would no longer be a coin toss though (in traditional means at least) as the coin would have been tampered with to increase the chance of landing on a specific side). 
    Also, @War I quoted you before x.x read it .

    Up for poker? :3 Or well... If I didn't have to save for a trip to the USA and then a 1 month one across Europe I mean. So... up for poker after all that? . Or maybe a nice match without money before it? (I don't know why, you just seem like a person who like to gamble and a decent person, even if I disagree with you sometimes. So yeah, up for it? ).
    If it wasn't poker this would also suit: 
     
    (to everyone else, sorry for derailing and going off-topic. Just wanna play and have fun) 
    Uhm.... no. After you flip it once, it's still a 50% chance. It would be different if you used a card deck for your example. Let's say you have 4 in 42 to draw a king. For every card you draw/remove from the deck, the chance of drawing a king would increase until you eventually got one.
    Not saying you're wrong about having more tries, I fully agree on that part, just disagreeing with your example about the coin flip (PS: It's more like 45.5% on heads, 45.5% tails and 1% on neither).

    Agreed :3 Liked the first dice game too and the football one. But after 1, maybe 2 times, events become too repetitive Imho . The dice one for example.

  11. aidlac added a post in a topic So I started my week long trial...   

    There's pretty much ANY OTHER MMO out there if you want fast travel. The LACK of fast travel is one of bdo's selling points . Sorry but if you dislike that, then like I said, pretty much ANY OTHER MMO might suit you better .
    Also... did you expect to learn everything about a game without even spending a week or two trying to learn`?  We have google at this day and age  and the channel chat, and the server chat, and the general (aka nearby) chat  All you need to do is ask people if there's something you don't understand and you don't feel like googling it. 
     
    Oh btw, about lack of information: when you hit level 20 or so you can activate all types of quests, not just combat ones (aka the default mode only shows combat). This will lead you to get life skill quests etc which will introduce you to each craft (assuming you take the quest for each craft ofc) ^^

    Out of ideas/sad excuse of an event?
    Hi,
    I'm just wondering what the heck Kakao?  Are you or PA out of ideas for events? I'm not trying to be insulting but how the heck can you call "oh look, the exp thing we've had every weekend for OVER HALF A YEAR" an event still? . It's not an event if it happens ALL THE TIME, it's a PERMANENT thing then.
    Are you desperate for player count on weekends or what? Because rn that's about the only reason I can think of as to why you'd call 100% exp bonus an "event" anymore instead of a sad excuse for making people play extra on weekends. I'll just say my honest thoughts about this once but: this is pathetic. Have it on every weekend, but sure af don't call it an event then. 
     
    Before anyone say it's rude to say they're out of ideas, Ik Ik, they've had some decent ones and "different" ones lately. But beside the lamps from loyalty shop, christmas, the new year celebrations and the halloween events, when was the last "original" or "not just a repeat of what we've already had" event?  Examples: Exp events, attendance rewards, exp events, 1 year anniversary boss(es) (heard this one was worse than the rooster thingy boss?), exp events, "play your way" (kinda ironic name for a event only rewarding 3 specific types of play in a game with way more), blackstone event. Those are just a few examples... oh right! did I mention EXP EVENT?!? . 
     
    Idk, I'd just personally at least like a lot more... creative and "fresh ideas" in terms of events :3 A CO-OP hunting one for example, or why not one for farming (fences/crops) since you've had for gathering and fishing? Heck, think big and in PvP terms and you might be able to arrange something like "Kill the Admin" in arena or G vs GM/CM  (assuming they turned off invulnerability and the (near?) 100% dodge even if it meant like 10 damage per player/skill/attack, it COULD be possible then). 
    I don't know, maybe I'm just salty atm but I'd love to hear your thoughts and ideas folks .
     
    Have a good evening, 
    Greetings: Traveler.

    I.. I'm sorry but WHY are you (Kakao and/or Pearl Abyss, aka your korean overlords) still calling this an "event"? . It's not an event if it happens every single week. It's more of a common occurrence or permanent weekend implementation at this stage. 
    kamasylve can be found in loyalties tab, last time I checked anyway.
