  1. The latest patch made possible to sell pearl shop items into the marketplace for a decent amount of silver. Considering the max amount that can be transformed in pearls ( 150 Euros ), and then into Pearl shop items; would make a profit of at least 117 mio silver. 
    I played almost since the beginning of Black Desert being a semi-hardcore player with not a lot of ingame-skill. I made until now almost 470 mio silver, whereas a person recharging money of 150 euros weekly, could make 500 mio in a little more than 4 weeks. I really thought there couldn't be people giving this amount of money for a game, but I was wrong. I played a lot of other games where this expectations became true. Thank to" the promises " made at the beginning of the game, I bought the game thinking there would keep " their promises ". Already spent my 30 bucks, and now I have to compete against people who don't even know what the game is about but they will eventhough recharge more money in this game, which wouldn't show absolut skill. This will just show us who has more money in real life.
  2. Post on No P2W - Petition in General

    By Veil Khaos, posted
  3. Dear @PM_Jouska, @CM_Aethon, @CM_Praballo, @CM_Tytyes, @GM_Gemu, @GM_Rhotaaz, and @GM_Huego
    If you are ever planning on presenting to Pearl Abyss how strongly and passionately EU & NA are against this idea, here is a compiled list of the community's responses (who are against this), organized in one thread for your convenience. 
    I'd like to stress to you, Daum/Kakao, that the point of this thread is to lay down all at once how the community against this feels and how important this is to us.
    This news has spread like fire and has depressed, saddened, and/or angered tons of players who loved this game and supported the creators since the beginning. 
    Additionally, based on this thread, a lot of players believe this won't make a difference and that our opinions & feedback won't matter. Let this prove them wrong!
    If I missed anything else that we have done, let me know and I will add it to this, I will continue to update as I find more links.
    ***Please keep this thread constructive, & reply with images/links/videos (and region + server) of any information that you have if you are against this, and I will add to this post. This thread is meant to compile information for Daum/Kakao, please take other feedback towards their decisions back to the Announcement Thread by PM_Jouska
    ATTENTION: Place your votes and stances here and tell your friends, guild members, servers, and channels to vote too!

    ********** [WIP] Frequent Suggestions (mostly from who are against): 
    Ability to purchase Pearl items with Loyaltieshttp://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/107846-possible-solution-to-p2w/Ability to purchase Pearl items from an NPC for in-game silverAbility to purchase Pearl items from the Night Vendor for in-game silverAbility to craft Pearl items, which will either be very tedious or very expensiveImplement a new series of quest lines for Pearl itemsNot implementing this change in any wayLower cash shop prices Lower profit when listing a cash shop item on the marketplace (Example: to avoid selling 1 outfit for 30-100m at 5 outfits / week = 150-500m / week)Forum Poll: "How much silver would you buy a $30 costume for?"Below is my opinion in what would be reasonable regarding the market price per costume:30m+ - "Max" - Seems high if p2w-ers take advantage of p2w (150m / week @ 5 costumes / week)20m - "Average" - Could seem high if taking advantage of p2w (100m / week @ 5 costumes / week)15m - "Fair" - If taking advantage of p2w (75m / week @ 5 costumes / week)10m - "Low" - If taking advantage of p2w (50m / week @ 5 costumes / week)Anything below 10m isn't even worth it to buy and sell to a lot of people. The amount should be right in the middle - not too high for easy abuse for wallet warriors, and not too low so that there are 0 costumes on the marketplace (as rare as Kzarka weapons for example)Looking at the above opinions, I personally would be OK with making the outfitter price ranges on the marketplace be 10-20m, as I would continue to play & support the game. Decrease the maximum amount allowed to list costumes / pearl shop items per week / month; ideas below:1 per week = 4 per month3 per month5 per monthGiving us the JP version as suggested by @Surrender and @RubyTuesday (as well as others that I might have missed)Only able to sell parts of a costume. They sell for 5-10m eachLimit of 5 parts /week -> Thats 1~ full Set for around 50m a week --> a lot of players (as well as myself) think this is reasonable if this system is implemented***To get more feedback from as much community as possible (because not everyone is on forums), implement a poll upon launching the game; the poll would either be directly in-game or would direct the player to a website where they can then vote if they want this change.__________________________________________________________________________________________

    Thank you for reading, and I wish you best of luck if you decide to present this to Pearl Abyss.

  4. Im internationalen Forum wurde eine Petition gestartet. Schließt euch dem an und eventuell bringt es sogar was... ^.^
  5. Post the screen of your server, guild icon, guild name, whatever you are using to express your disappointment.

  6. Ok guys, I have a suggestion: 
    Limit 3 per week (this includes dyes and other items) BUT the prices of all costumes or other items goes down to 3 bucks a piece max and cap the max amount you can get for a costume at 4mil... that would net you 12mil max per week from costumes which in turn means approx. 2-3 hours of grinding. Like this everyone can have costumes...no one gets rich (sorry but 12 mil a week is nothing even if you play 2 hours a day you make that in 2 days and have a bunch in the inventory extra).
    This mitigates the P2W to a symbolic figure, also assures a lot of sales on PA's end (the less the item costs the more sales they will have) and keeps economy from collapsing.
    Let's think about it this way $3 is the price of a beer ... 4mil is the price of a sharp crystal... everybody wins including PA and Kakao, and it also puts an end to P2W.
    SO the answer is limit items to 3 per week while dropping prices to symbolic figures in the pearl store and in game for pearl store items.
