[Updated] In-Game accessibility to Pearl Shop Items

6,514 posts in this topic

Allow unlimited cash shop sales on the marketplace.

Remove Enhancement from the game. 

Now there is no P2W OR Unemployed2Win.

That's not how it works. The game will be an even bigger ghost town for both.

All these nolifers crying now that people with work can catch up to them with gear and finally have some proper pvp :D Guess most of those 'pros' dont like fair fights they rather outgear and 1shot people xD

Awesome change this will bring more people to the game, people that actually support game and keep it alive.

even then, before this announcement, you would see plenty of dots even if zoomed in all the way

not to mention the noticeable lack of amount of names you see in the main image (not chat or map), I literally only see 2 names

sure, a lot of people are still working on a friday afternoon, but plenty of times, I have gone home for lunch and opened up bdo to refill worker stamina, looping in town I'd see a crapload of people

How?

I see so many posts with people being like, "At least Legion is coming out." or something along those lines.

People are leaving for skill based games

^ This is exactly why the current system AND P2W both do not work. 

Skill2Win would make it fair for everyone while still allowing Kakao to roll in the money $$$$$

Greetings Adventurers,

Today we are writing you to provide insight into a new mechanic you can expect to see next week, following the normally scheduled maintenance. As many of you are aware, the Value Package was recently introduced to our Pearl Store. After detailed discussions with the Developers at Pearl Abyss, it has been decided that the Value Pack as well as other Pearl Shop Items will be made available via the Market Place over the next series of updates. 

- Players might be allowed to register maximum of 5 Pearl Shop Items per week on the Market Place.

We understand that this change will spark discussions, and have asked Pearl Abyss to share their thoughts behind this decision.

Pearl Abyss considers in-game accessibility to Pearl Items necessary in Black Desert.

Regardless of the region, there will always be players who, for whatever reason, do not get to experience all the features Black Desert offers including Pearl Shop Items. Adding a mechanic that grants access to Pearl Shop Items with in game currency will allow more players to enjoy such content more easily.

For the same reason, the players of other regions like Korea, Japan and Russia are preferring those features since it allows them better accessibility to Pearl Shop Items.

We are open to the community’s feedback and we encourage you to share your thoughts and concerns in a constructive manner on this change.  

 

NOTE: The previous announcement has been polished in order to deliver and clarify the intention better.

Christ mate, those regions are free 2 play so no WONDER they prefer features like this.

DROP THE PRICE OF CASH SHOP ITEMS (EXAMPLE $3 PER COSTUME/ITEM/VALUE PACK), THEN DROP THE SILVER PRICE OF THE ITEM TO 4 MIL MAX IF SOLD AT THE MARKETPLACE... AND ONLY ALLOW 3 ITEMS TO BE SOLD PER WEEK. THIS MITIGATES DAMAGE TO THE PLAYER BASE AND GREEDY COMPANY ALIKE. COMPANY NOW SELLS MORE ITEMS (SUPPLY AND DEMAND) AND REACH MORE PLAYERS. MORE OF THE PLAYERS THAT CAN'T AFFORD IT ORIGINALLY NOW CAN. NO BODY GETS RICH OFF OF 12 MIL SILVER MAX PROFIT A WEEK -

'NUFF SAID - REPOST THIS SO THAT EVERYBODY CAN WIN. (EXCEPT THOSE THAT WANTED TO GEAR OFF OF PROFITS :p)

Why did you quote me here and then expect an answer in a PM? To make me look bad? I gave you your answer behind closed doors, but I'll bring it out here since you insist.

 

Vorkrunne

Can you explain to me why people would leave if PvP wins were based on players landing combos/skill rather than gear disadvantages? 

Seriously lost. 

There are so many people saying that they are leaving for games like WoW because they have skill based PvP. So ???? What am I missing? Educate me. 

ReverseEffect

 

People aren't leaving based on the PvP wins. You have the wrong idea. They're leaving because of the P2W aspect itself. Yes, balanced PvP would be nice, and believe it or not, people have been calling for balances to the classes as a start.

As for the gear itself, gear superiority has always been in MMOs. Nearly every game has this, especially in competitive PvP battlegrounds and scored arenas.

As for the people leaving for WoW, don't ask me. I don't know enough about WoW to give an opinion.

 

Closing the gap in gear isn't the issue. The issue itself is paying money for it. No one will feel motivated to play the game if money is involved. People will think, "what reason do I have to grind if I can just buy my gear?". People will buy their gear, possibly max level with it, get bored and leave the game to go find another one with a refreshing aspect of starting over. It's the same cycle. People want to break that cycle. P2W enforces it.
