    They kind of are. You either don't play the game, or you do play the game and are forced to waive your rights. 
     
    There is no choice.

    Game forcing me to waive my rights? Is that even legal?
    I don't see how the "I am hereby requesting access and play BDO and I waive my right of withdrawal" is a legal thing to do. It seems extremely scummy and shady. Is there anyway around this or am I really being forced to agree to this?

    Things I have tried so far,
    Unparking CPU cores.
    Overclocking CPU to 4.4ghz from 4.2
    Windowed Fullscreen, Windowed, and Fullscreen.
    I've tried every Graphic Setting. (Low, Medium, Medium high, etc.) and every Texture Detail level setting, and turned on/off all the settings I could find.
    I've tried playing in Cropped mode.
    Rollback and Update Drivers.
    Force "wait for Vertical Refresh" off in Catalyst Control.
    Disabled Tessellation and Disabled Multisampling
    Disabled Anti Aliasing
    Set monitor Refresh rate to 60 (This doesn't ever get changed by the game, surprisingly)

    [Help] Low FPS? Can't seem to go more than about 30 fps even on low settings...
    So yeah I always seem to have terrible FPS. My FPS sits around 30 and drops down to around 20 all the time. No idea why.
    Here is my current PC specs

I feel like I should be getting much higher fps.
    I am playing in Windowed Fullscreen.
    According to this I should be more than able to get a lot more performance. I'm playing on 19x12 resolution for on a 60hz 1080p monitor.

    What? Are you delusional?

    Leveling is so fast it's sickening. I got to level 40 in CBT2 without even trying. Just messing around.
     
    They need to slow it down, imo.

    I do need cosmetics. It's not fun to me to look like a poor homeless chodelord, half the fun in MMO's is gearing up and progressing your gear and power. Not just mindlessly mob grinding for Blackstones and Skill Points...

    Yeah, DAUM are absolutely delusional if they think things will sell with these absurdly high prices.

    Seeing character stats
    Why don't they allow us to view our characters stats? Such as our chance to dodge, block, crit, hit chance, things of that nature.

    It seems like a lot of the information, especially in regards to combat/pve is hidden in this game. 

    Do you think there is any chance we would be able to see these things in game without having to spreadsheet and manually test them for four hours 1v1 on a target in pvp to calculate approximate values?

  11. Sephrinx added a post in a topic Practical solution to RMT, That allows trading.   

    No game should ever bar the player base from having a decent experience only to combat gold sellers. It's ridiculous the measure they are taking to try and prevent them.
    I don't see why they are trying to do it so fervently, either. 
     
    Sure, gold sellers and RMTers are annoying and pathetic. Sure, they degrade the quality of the game for others, Sure, they're bullshit. 
    Do the ruin the game? Not nearly as much as not being able to trade and interact with the fellow players of the game. 

    No longer will I be able to farm herbs for a friend.
    No longer will I be able to make some Elixirs for my guild.
    No longer will I be able to spam craft Beer and give it to a friend working on trade routes/crafting.
    No longer will I be able to give some random noob a hookup when they are just starting out, and need a little help.
    No longer will I be able to function as a part of a group to strive for a greater goal. (Aside from teaming up to grind mobs/pvp?)
    And for what reason? To try and prevent gold sellers. 
     
    THIS JUST IN!!  Here's an idea - Just ban them when they are reported, don't pull a Blizztard and ban them once every 14 months in a 'wave' - only to ban them for 4 days and then let them back in. Maybe have an ingame GM that can actively look in the chat channels, inspect suspicious activity, things of that nature. The more that you ban, the more accounts they have to buy and create, which makes more money for Daum. If you can't ban an account within 2 weeks of its creation or becoming flagged as suspicious, than there is something shamefully wrong with you and your support staff. 

    I feel like the players are being punished, not the gold sellers. They will still find a way to cheat the system, they always have and always will. 
    There is no reason why we can't have a fully open trade system and character-character interaction, other than the laziness of the Devs and their stubbornness. 
     
     
    I have seen talk of trade on here lately, quite a lot of misinformed people talking about trade and its limitations. They claim that trading being limited will prevent Gold Sellers/RMT, and that it will save the games economy. They claim that if you were able to trade freely, like in 99.9999% of other games online, that the game would somehow go up in flames and would be "literally unplayable."

    I have to question, based off of what information did you come to this assessment? Why is it you think this way? Point to me one game (Just one) that has been ruined by Gold Sellers/RMT (Aside from Diablo 2). I bid you cannot do it. I've played a vast amount of MMO's and Online Games (WoW, Rift, Tera, Cabal, ESO, Wildstar, KOTR, Secret World, ArcheAge, etc.), of which have open trade, auction houses, etc, none of which have been negatively impacted by open trade. Does RMT exist? Yes. Does it ruin the game? Not in the least bit. Some people have more money than you, that's all. 
    RMT will not go away simply be not being able to trade. It will still happen, and you know it will. They will find a way around it, one way or another. Not being able to trade, and making the Marketplace automatically price our items, is simply silly. 
    Why would you take a game that so much emphasizes trade and crafting, and not allow you to trade to people? It's quite ludicrous really. It makes no sense.

    My biggest QOL gripe currently is how long it takes to go from NonCombat to Combat stance. As a Wizard, taking your staff out should not take 3 seconds, kind of annoying =/

  13. Sephrinx added a post in a topic Cash Shop; Changes for a better, higher profitable and longer lasting BDO   

    As someone who has put nearly a thousand dollars into my League account, they really need to change their Payment model. Things are outrageously expensive. They need to be cheaper, or people simply won't buy them. 

    If I had to spend 30 dollars for a skin in leagues (aside from the Ultimate skins like Pulsefire Ezreal, etc) I would never have spent a cent on that game. Seeing as how I can get 2-3 skins for 10 bucks, or more if things are on sale, I don't mind spending some money here and there. I've been playing since Season 1 so I have had a lot of time to spend a shit load of money on it.
    As for BDO - I don't see myself ever buying anything, since things are just, simply too expensive and not worth it.
     
    Forgot to put, having Costume items grant bonuses is absolutely insane, no matter how small. As for the costumes that hide your name, what in the actual ----- kind of bullshit is that? How did that even come out of someone's lips to the dev's as an idea? It's utter nonsense.
