Basically. It's like they're putting nodes and territories up on the cash shop

This is going to kill Black Desert online. I will stop playing once they allow pearl items on the market place. The only way to save this game is either they don't do this or we all agree to NEVER buy the pearl items on the market place and let the pay2win a**hats waste their money putting pearl items on the market place that noone will buy.

If they truely want to get the pearl items into more people's hands then hows about lowering the prices so more people are willing to but them.

instead of having a custom cost $29 hows about $15. 

 

I hope they relieve that allowing pearl items on the market place will not only cause this game to die but also lose them a lot of money.

Not over reactions.  People are going to quit are quitting actually.  Have fun with the thousand players left.  Im sure you can circle jerk each other all day and have a great time!

Yes it is literally overreactions:

1. We don't know the exchange rate.

2. We know it's limited to 5 items per week (albeit, that barely means anything, for all we know that might still make it p2w)

3. They clearly stated that they could possibly allow items to be sold on the marketplace in the future, but if they did, they'd limit it's impact.

They already have a f2p cash shop in a b2p game and they recently introduced a sub. Unless you're a shareholder I don't understand the ass kissing here.

  It's called reality not "ass kissing", pick up a book.

Everyones like p2w just because there is now a possibility people can have the same level of gear and will be reduced to skill and tactics?

 

Scared?

There was a poll that 80% of the playerbase disagreed with it. Of course, like with everything, there's a margin of error. However, even with that margin of error, 80% is sizable. The game starts p2w, then goes f2p. Then we're stuck with another ArcheAge/TERA.

 

Scared? Yes, we're scared of another good game going dead.

Well, I'm officially uninstalling and probably requesting a refund.  This was covered in their FAQ when I bought the game and they are completely reversing their policy on this.  Obviously the value packs weren't selling so they decided to go further down the P2W rabbit hole.  Not only this is this going to open up more P2W aspects going forward, the amount of fraud that is going to occur from RMT is going to astronomical.

Take note now, Kakao... this is the end of your game in NA and EU.  You had a very impressive game with amazing graphics and an engaging play style that was unique compared to everything else on the market here.  P2W does not fly very well in the NA and EU economies.  Whoever is driving the business and marketing decisions for your game, needs to have a serious reality check.

Your company & it's product has been a complete scam. Every employee is responsible btw, you are not "just doing your job" you are fulfilling your employers vindictive & greedy whims. Quit your job, like I quit this scam. 

I'm dropping my game subscription & getting a gym subscription. Next time I want to play a competitive game, I'll pick up an fps or fighter. Can't see myself trusting another MMO with my precious & limited amount of time on this earth.

 

Shouts out to my guild for being the only worthwhile component of this complete shit show.

What subscription? Are you even in the right game?

LOL

I feel the need to chip in on this one.

This feels like your typical strategy of implementing changes into the game against the community's will. What you do is that you present a twisted idea as the result of a few people's complaints in a fashion that really upsets me. Nobody (who plays wholeheartedly) likes this idea whatsoever and would like to see this scratched and forgotten immediately.

However, due to the fashion in which this idea was presented, you already rhetorically ****ed each and everyone of us. What I am refering to is that you (probably intentionally) presents the idea with a ridiculous and practically non-existent "limit" of 5 sales per week, in hope to keep the community's focus on the limit instead of stupid proposal in its entirety. This has obviously resulted in exactly that: reactions focusing on the limit of sales alone instead of the proposal.

A summary of the comment section as of now, would give the impression that the community wants to go through with this proposal, but adjust the limit to 1 costume/week instead of 5. When we in fact wouldn't like to see it implemented at all.

 

In conclusion; i think Kakao expected this kind of fallout from proposing something like this. And through manipulative rhetoric, they are gonna manage to pull through after all while still being able to say that they listened to the community.

What further confirms my thesis, is that the given reason for this proposal, is that "... there will always be players who, for whatever reason, do not get to experience all the features Black Desert offers, including Pearl Shop Items".

So basically, instead of lowering the absolute insane prices in the pearl shop to make it more accesible for everyone - they decide to make those who can afford items buy more and provide the less fortunate. This shows that in the end, money is all that matters.

You guys threatening with refunds lol.. gl with that.

All you people are screaming p2w, but the majority of you bought tons of pearls to get ahead in game a little bit. Thanks for funding the game though, now leave so the normal people can enjoy it.

I just hope they don't take it too far and not just the most expensive items will be available on marketplace, but apart from that I'm all for it.

Enjoy playing this with p2w option. If you think people who spent money were getting ahead before... well just enjoy the game.
