[Updated] In-Game accessibility to Pearl Shop Items

Pearl Abyss considers in-game accessibility to Pearl Items necessary in Black Desert.

SO MAKE IS ACCESSIBLE BY OTHER MEANS!

The loyalty shop doesn't exist? That PA and Daum doesn't have the power to put them on an in game vendor for in game currency?

This game had great aspects, and potential to be better, but that's all it was going to be a potentially good game, the good thing about this is, it has happened in its short lived life on NA rather than years down the road. At least for me.

So why did we pay money to buy this game in the first place?

Would like that money back. Was under the impression this was a buy to play game.

False advertisement

Gonna do charge back when u implement this shit to the game ... the moment u make this live the game is DEAD !!

  May wanna check the Terms of Service of BDO.  Also, when you call your card for the dispute and they ask, "Did you receive the product?" and you say , "Ya, I been playing several months, but I do not like the direction the game is going in".

At that point that click you hear will be your credit card company hanging up on you.

It's sad to see an absolutely amazing game in principle be ruined by pay2win elements by influencing both the core mechanics of the game subtly and now just blatantly selling out. The Value pack had me lose some hope for the game but, I assumed they would side with community and keep their promise to keep the game free of those features but, I see now that is not the case. Not only have we been let down with missed deadlines, which I think a lot of us were willing to forgive but, we have been straight up lied to. I will not be returning to this game unless drastic changes away from this method are made. It's very sad to see such a good game ruined for many people including myself.

Hi,

I don't usually post a lot on forums but after reading your latest announcement, I feel the need to voice my opinion.  I've been a BDO player since launch and have been enjoying it a lot. I find the content of the game to be plentiful, enjoyable and unique. I haven't enjoyed a game as much as BDO in many years. However, as a semi-competitive player, I feel that gameplay fairness is highly essential to the appreciation of the game. I've considered BDO to be a competitive game, or at least contain many elements of a competitive game.

It is perfectly understandable, in terms of fairness, to prevent hackers from exploiting the game. They break gameplay fairness by giving some players an advantage over others through out-of-game mechanics (3rd party hacking software, client modifications etc.). In the same spirit, allowing a player to gain silver by selling perl shop items on the market is giving some players an advantage over others through out-of-game mechanics (credit cards, real world currency). Such an unfair advantage breaks gameplay fairness and ultimately breaks the competitive appeal of BDO.

More generally, I don't enjoy games where the in-game market is mixed with the real-world market. From a purely gaming point of view, there is no need to merge them. They should be entirely segregated. I'm tolerant of limited cash shops for vanity items but BDO is already selling too many items that give non-negligible advantages to paying customers (increased weight, increased bags, horse breeding reset, item branding, value packs etc. etc.). I understand that F2P/P2W models are now all the hype in the industry because 0.1% of the customer base is spending enough to cover for all the other customers. That's great news for developers but it's really bad news for gamers because instead of playing games that have been designed to be fun, we have to play games that have been design to extract money from the 0.1% of its customer base while incidentally having some fun elements. This is why I believe subscription models are superior billing models. They incentivize game developers to design fun games only (no need to extract more money from anyone) where all players are equals.

That is not to say that I haven't spent money on BDO. I did and bought a lot of perl shop items because I enjoy the game and want to support the developers in their efforts. I've been playing the game up to now because it is pretty fair. However, if the new mechanics of selling perl shop items on the in-game market are implemented, I will regretfully stop playing BDO and look for other games out there that have their priorities and incentives set right.

Additional note: Be honest. You're not implementing P2W features to "allow non-paying customers to experience perl shop items". That's simply disingenuous and insulting to your customers. You're not coming through as morally superior because you're hiding the fact that you're looking for more profits. Be straight with your player base and tell them the real reason why such a change is being implemented.

A pay-to-win game that you have to buy... Are you trying to suicide this game or what? You're -----ing over your existing players while simultaneously putting off any new players from wanting to get involved with the game. This is the dumbest of the dumb. What are you thinking!?

i dont get how this is pay to win. i mean 5 items a week and it allows players who dont have 20-30 dollars to pick up costumes and other accessories without having to waste money. i mean also lets be honest who has 150$ consistently to spend to buy outfits to sell every week and if someone wants to waste there money like that let them be. its the small minority. again i dont feel like there is anything pay to win here. its more like pay for convenience imo but i doubt most people see it that way because they dont interpret that. also as someone else said im pretty sure outfits cannot be sold on marketplace as a bundle, so you can only sell each piece individual.

tera does a system similiar to this and it works out just fine.
