Personal opinion: Depending on the price ingame, I would limit it to 1/2 items per week instead.

If 1 can buy pearl shop Items and resell on marketplace, this must be another cash grab for more sales.

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

You know, advertising, over and over, that no p2win features will be added, then doing this, is actually false advertising. Seriously false advertising. Opens up lawsuit + chargebacks and I hope you have accounted for that in your US market.

So, how much Silver do I get for 5 Costume Sets = 14.500 Pearls (13€) per week?

~400 mil per piece

I support companies who stand by their word and do not do things purely out of greed. It seems pretty obvious here that Daum is just looking at dollar signs and going back on everything they ever said. I almost never complain about P2W, but this is a real 180 on Daums previous stance on P2W elements in the NA version. I won't jump to any conclusions yet, since we do not have all of the details, but I'm not very confident things will turn out well for this game.

while I mostly hate whiners... if you really want poor players to be able to access those outfits etc...

u could also have  made outfits available thru loyalty points... or available by putting some outfits ingame thru achievements.. or hell just decrease the price on those items...

ahahahahahahah people were asking why we were upset when they added the value pack. It wasn't because of the value pack itself; but because of what would have come after, which is this.

Was a fun ride, best MMO i've ever played since headstart. No regrets for what i spent, still would have liked to last at least a year..guess i was wrong.

No bad feelings, have fun for those staying o/

So what you greedy third world, third rate game developers at Pearl Abyss are saying is that I can not get the most from this game if I can not look like a pretty, pretty princess. I will never fully grasp the magnitude of the game without a value package. 

You are insulting even by Korean standards. This is why Blizzard continues to steam roll these plebs.

It's really funny how they tested the waters with value packs first.  Then once they realized they wouldn't lose the community over it they decided to just keep pushing the p2w model pretty soon were going to be able to buy loyalty for pearls.

Value Pack defenders, where are you now? this still not P2W?

 

@PM_Jouska , tell the koreans we should go F2P, there's no point in being a B2P game other than money grabbing right now.

This is directly going to turn into p2w. If you can't talk PA out of doing this than it needs to be more restricted or this really will kill a large player base off that came here because of your promise to not make this p2w.

 

- Can't sell more than 5 items per month

- Items should have a low MP cap on silver for what they can be sold for

- Move more of the Pearly items to the loyalty store

 

Also there is nothing in the pearl store that is necessary to play this game. If you continue to do events where people get pets that will continue to alleviate some of the problem.
