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.

Lol yeah everyone should file a lawsuit against Daum :) they just ruined the game for so many of us.

Well, why would anyone believe ANYTHING you say now? You clearly lie openly to everyone, without shame. 

You have no integrity whatsoever

F*** this

Good job guys. You just destroyed a good game with this new mechanic. Bringing cash shop items into the marketplace is going to inflate the market and destroy the game. Shit is going to cost so much that F2P players will have no choice but than to go p2w or leave the game. Sure you'll get more money in your pockets but once the game dies, your income dies. Is it worth it?

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.

@PM_Jouska Everyone is going to cry about p2w and all that stuff but one thing i was thinking to help would be maybe to 3 items per week max and add an extra icon by the add to cart but make the ones that arent bound and can be sold to the markeplace their own cart and make them cost more to cut down on the players being able to spend it and also like korea adding a monthly spending cap. If you add those restrictions in, I am pretty sure that most people wont cry about it like they will be. Obviously they dont look at the fact that you guys can only do so much but I think this might help out some with the hate that will be coming.

Again, not P2W. You guys are throwing a temper tantrum and its sad.

I'm in between jobs. I can't afford pearl shop stuff.

But this means that if someone puts it on the market next week, I can use in game currency to purchase a pearl shop item.

How is that p2w? It's not.

I cannot be silent on this issue. I feel for the localization team as a lot of this is thrown at them and since they are not the publisher they lack much control of what content is and is not introduced. @PM_Jouska I truly hope that your team can take some kind of action to prevent this. This game has had many items offered in its pearl shop that range from purely convenience to items that had significant advantages. But this does not add convenience to the player, it allows the player to turn their real life income into BDO silver with only a minor time gate associated with it due to the 5 item limit. This is not a convenience feature that makes the game easier for the player, it allows the player to simply not play the game and reap the rewards of another player grinding for hours, if not days. Gear is by far the thing that separates players who are dedicated and work hard at an mmo from casual players, and over my time playing I learned to truly respect players who have worked hard through the rng to be at the top of their game. When/if this is implemented, that will entirely change. Gear will not be a factor of hard work in game compared to your peers, but also a factor on how much money you are willing to dump into it.

 

I understand the localization team can only do so much, but as a purchaser of this game I have watched this cash shop transform and be more and more aggressive for players wallets. Someday when i have more time or when I want to catch up with friends I intend to return to BDO, but with changes like this, I worry what if anything I will be returning to.

Kinda glad i lost interest in the game seeing how it's slid into the same bullcrap that killed archeage for many people, the dye sub i could ignore since it seemd like you had at least tried to make it something other than we ended up with....turns out you merely delayed it hoping the folks who hated the idea of buy to play then a separate sub for dyes would leave before you added it, and now this bullcrap...

 

Way to go ruining what could have been a really decent game with greed kakeo.

I hope you reduce the cost of these costumes and outfits and other crap. Because you made it expensive as ----- to give feature content free, but now with all the P2W options you keep adding once every 2 weeks there's really no need for everything to be this expensive. 

Also, congratualtions on working for a trash company.

@PM_Jouska maybe make it possible to either make it only 5 items a month or make silver exchangable for pearls? 

do as much as you can here because the people who have the biggest wallet will always be at the top... the game is going the wrong way on terms of cash shop items as of this moment.

LMAO being able to put cash shop items on the market is definitely not P2W, I am glad I will have access to some of these items while only grinding mobs.  P2W is real money for individual stat increases.....seems like so many people are lost to this concept or too thick to grasp it.

 

P2W = An item only available on the cash shop, that boosts health, attack, defense, or grants abilities not obtainable by any other means.

Selling cash shop items on the market means that people like me, who cant or don't have money to get things like costumes (which are cosmetic), can now get those by farming mobs for silver.

 

Great job Daum/PA!  Keep it up!
