what's next for BDO?

I don't mean content wise I mean like what's the next thing to get added that will milk us players dry?

It's buy to play, pay to play, and has a cash shop. Like I've never seen an MMO manage to get all 3 in, this truly is the first next gen MMO.

Firstly... it's not p2p. p2p means the sub is NOT optional.

Secondly, it's not even remotely the first game to do this;

Warcraft is actually that, you buy the client, you buy the expansions, you pay a sub and it has a cash shop.
Final Fantasy ARR is that, you buy the client, you buy the expansion, you pay a sub and it has a cash shop.

As for your loaded question, look at the KR servers considering there's really nothing we've gotten that wasn't there. At worst we'll start to see more CS items being able to be sold on the AH but it's hazy if they will actually do that or not.

Probably more rabid p2w supporters :) after all irl you pay you get more stuff so it should work that way in games too or else it isn't fun!

It's brilliant really, they managed to ban gold sellers and limit the market then sell us gold in a roundabout way themselves ;)

In the beginning Everquest, Everquest 2, SWTOR, Wildstar, and Vanguard were also like that where you bought the game, payed a Sub, AND had a cash shop.

Obviously the OP has never played another mmo. lol

Ummm EQ, EQ 2, SWTOR did not have a cash shop before going f2p.

Wildstar implemented theirs late in the game, it was very limited and it was after the population severely declined. never played Vangaurd.

Source: I played every one of those games at launch.

If you played zero MMOs, perhaps this is new to you.  Otherwise it's just what every MMO does now; it's the norm. It's either B2P or F2P(P2P is pretty much dead now, generally no new MMO can survive with it nowadays), optional sub and cash shop.  Every MMO going forward will have those three things, been like that since Tera if not before.
