I'm so salty mannnn I didn't know you have to wait 5-6 hours to breed horses again. I DIDN'T EVEN BREED THEM YET. I chose the wrong horse so I wanted to switch, now I have to wait hours again. FML.

Wow, this is pathetic. Good luck trying to get back up from here, since I don't think reverting the changes would make any difference. You've completely ruined your integrity for the whole gaming industry.

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.

 

I do not see NA/EU in this EDIT.

you don't see because he saying those region are accepting and liking the change.  NA is not liking the change.

For me i will be happy to see for the Reason PM_Jouska said. It will allow those that can't afford pear items to have these items now.

I can buy my pets and costume now for silver and enjoy some feature that some can afford with cash.

Since all other regions are F2P, can we be compensated with pearls for the boxes we purchased?

has anyone considered that the edit, adding 'maybe' to the 5 items per week, could be increased? Perhaps they considered allowing 5 transactions a week (per family?), buuuut it's better for their wallets if they let people buy/sell 10.

Its hilarious how NA/EU:

whine about "p2w" but are the ones who pay (pay the most maybe?). if nobody paid then all would be "equal" and "fair", and the trend would go away. (for example, the scamcrates that have become common wouldnt exist if people would just quit buying the damn things. companies will not willingly get rid of them cuz the margins are bloody insane)
Complain about "fair" but are the first ones to cheat. their. asses. off. at the earliest opportunity.

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.

Thank you for your efforts in understanding our concerns in the edit. Big problem is this was introduced into a b2p community not a f2p one.

It isn't really a change for them. KR has had it all along. RU has had it almost as long as it has been out there. Same with JPN. The thing is, those markets accept it and think it is good. Scummy p2w/near p2w has never been accepted in the western market and the western market does not view it as good. There are quite a few other ways to accomplish non paying players getting access to pearl store items with bring in something that would cause such an outrage. This wasn't done to do that though. This was done to make a quick buck. The apparent business plan of Kakao makes that quite apparent.

You offer a way to get loyalties and use loyalties to buy some cash shop items, why not offer the same with pearls if you are so caring; as it stands, that's not the case. It is understandable that the game does need money for it's multiple variables, but there are different ways to do this that does not involve selling through AH. Here are some to help:

  1. Lowering prices on the cash shop
  2. Offer a way to earn pearls through game
  3. Leave it the way it is

We are not idiots. You definitely need to to be in politics @PM_Jouska because that caring nature is in the wrong industry.

I have no words to accurately express my disappointment in this decision. Among my friends in game, who have collectively spent 1,000's. None will spend a cent until the dust clears. 

And if it turns out that the community shrinks, and the competitive guilds get weaker, and there are fewer of them... we will leave. If pearl abyss thinks this will make them more money, they are wrong. Word of mouth is immensely important to grow a games community, i advise you don't alienate so many customers.

So I am currently a member of BDO and like the game a lot. I am also the community leader for my community. What I have noticed so far on my server since this post from "my" observation:

Day1- Random People selling everything and throwing anything and everything away then quitting

Day2- Small Guilds Imploding, Large Guilds Fracturing and/or leaving.

Day3- I have no clue its still day 2.........@.@

Yeah I completely agree with even announcing this and never going through with it. It still kills the game it's the trust that they violated.  It really sucks because as a person that plays mainly mmo's and am fine with cash shops and such it sucks that you killed a great game before it go to the best part. Us westerners are not ok with p2w and almost none of the community will support it let alone use it. You just killed a community for a system no need in the West will use. I for one have spent 600+ dollars on this game and will not use this system even if it is implemented it's ok in other regions but here we don't want it.

At his point i feel its a waste of time to voice recommendation of any sorts, considering this came only a few days after the outrage over the value pack,,,

Pearl Abyss is clearly not listening to its fan-base,,

                                                                   ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BDO was one of the most satisfying experience i had in an MMO, not really knowing what to do next i started scrubbing the net and stumble upon a 'Revelation' which i quickly subscribe for the CBT, i visited Tera Online and found that many of my friends where still there, so i created a new char just for fun,,,

I will endure and i will survive, sadly i can't say the same for Black Desert. i my opinion they will quickly lose a large portion of their fan-base which will result in a very empty world, that will discourage others eventually, what shocked me the most in this is that i payed 100USD for this game thinking it was gonna be a B2P model similar to GW2 but i feel deceived and cheated of my money, i will never put out another penny on this company and will slowly lose all interest in this game,

RIP BDO!
