we were promised a non pay to win pvp game without subscription....

kakao games buys the rights and..

1st thing they do --> value pack (subscription really)

2nd thing they do --> pay to win markeptlace

 

do you really want all players to leave you? daum already made enough mistakes with removeing exp loss from PK.

in the end it's all the same again: Money rules the world. happy customers is secondary as long as one makes money

The Value Pack was the first step into some kind of P2W. but now selling costumes on the marketplace...
I fear a dark time ahead :(

I really had hopes at the start. Seems those were false. Have fun with your p2w game, as I will not be likely to play it that long anymore then.

Limit 5 per month, not 5 per week. You will still earn plenty from the poor people with families, jobs and loads of cash that have to pay their way up instead of playing.

Just make everything sellable already, because we know you will eventually, so just cut the croutons already instead of introducing a change every week.

So we r finally heading the RU KR road.... sad.

GMs discuss all you want or make us believe there is an open discussion about that... at the end  we end up with a cash machine.

And seeing how  in game issues are handled and the care brought to the cash shop, your intentions are just quite clear.

This is the frog paradox all over again....

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.  After detailed discussions with the Developers at Pearl Abyss, it has been decided that the Value Package, Outfits, Costumes and Pets will be made available via the Market Place.  We, the Kakao Team, understand the impact of such a change and wish to provide as much information as possible, therefore we are explaining this change in advance to grant clarity.

 

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.  They are open to the community’s feedback and ask you to share your thoughts and concerns about this change.

 

We have communicated your feedback about such changes and your concern for players potentially being able to invest real money in order to gain an advantage, and in response Pearl Abyss has built limitation mechanics into the game.  Players will be limited to selling five items from the Pearl Shop on the Market Place per week.  This compromise will still provide in game accessibility but restrict how much can be gained via real money investment.

 

As we have stressed in the past, your feedback is paramount to us, and that is still true.  We encourage you to share your thoughts on this change as Pearl Abyss has requested.  However, we ask that you do so in a non-abusive but constructive manner.  We will continue to communicate on your behalf, and thank you in advance for your efforts.

 

-The Kakao Team

so basically instead of cutting the price of items on the market place and keeping the game as far away from p2w as possible the devs would rather ----- over a large part of the player base by making the game extremely p2w?

but its still okay to refuse to balance the game and still refuse to release awakenings?

lets put it this way , if awakenings are not released within a week of this patch being release then you lost a paying customer and prob plenty more than me aswell.

Honestly. The limitation needs to be be WAY MORE HARSH. I'm suggesting a MAXIMUM of 1 Pearl Shop item allowed be to be registered to a Marketplace per week. ONLY 1, NOT 7, NOT 11, NOT 2, JUST 1.

NO, NO, NO. You said NEVER p2w, I want total refund if this happens, and I won't let go, believe me. Stop the bullshit, don't kill the game with that shitty decision. STOP.

I see one logical step. 

Create 2 new servers and remove the current 3 servers.
One server will have the pearl items in-game future and the other one won't.
Give the current players the option to choose what server they will want to move to.

We will get rid of the so called 'server merge' problem we have had for a while now and at the same time we won't have to forcefully accept having to play this game in a pay to win environment only.

Guess we have to organize a strike and show how many can be offline for a few days... Personally I don't care if some plebs get a chance to catch up, but I care that the game is going to die because of this.

Limit the transactions even more! 5 per week is still way too much, it should be just 1 if you HAVE to do this change...
