this change will probably go through, and to be honest, as much as i loved BDO (barely touch the game as of a month or so ago), I simply cannot wait to log onto the game in about 2 months time and see 1-5 people at a node war slapping at eachother with their full p2w gear, with the TOP guilds containing about a max amount of about 15 players who all said "i'll keep playing anyways" or "just get a job". good job PA, i'll just sit back with a movie sized bag of popcorn extra salted and watch this train burn faster than archeage.

Don't do it BDO is only mmo we like, and your going to ruin it with the P2w stuff. Keep cash shop separate. Don't mess this game up.no one in na or eu wants or asked for this, quit trying to grab cash. I'd rather see a sub fee than this.

@PM_Jouska now i have a serious question.Since the game is faulty goods,and is not what was promised when i bought the game and made the in-game currency purchases.Will you guys be willing to reimburse me and refund all the payments that i made since March,or should I just start filling complaints to PayPal?

Best Regards.Thanks.

This will create a short term increase in profit for the company but in the long term it is going to kill the game. I honestly feel bad for Daum employees who will likely loose their job in the next couple of years cause there wont be enough players to justify their position. I knew this was going to happen eventually but to happen this quickly is ridiculous. R.I.P black desert.

Go to night vendor, roll about 2000-10k energy, buy kzarka weapon and/or boss armors with ingame silver, head over to marketplace, buy sharps hards and blackstone weapons with ingame silver. Use them to upgrade your kzarka and armor. 

DO I NEED TO DRAW YOU A MAP? 

 

So. RNG just like everyone else. take it from the other side.  You are someone who plays hardcore, and you never buy pearls: but you've got good luck You now have a market to sell. take it from this perspective: you're not hardcore. you don't or cannot afford to be. You can now buy cosmetic items ( note: you can sell a max of 5 per week, that is ONE costume in some cases) and convienience items, such as pets, and weight limit increases with in game currency -- which increases the amount of silver in the market across the board. in other words, instead of a bottle neck of well-heeled whales, the potential here is for a more equalized and competitve game: which many of the hardcore complaining won't be playing in 6 months either way.

Exactly the point! I'm one of those, my wife is one of those, and many of my friends are those also. We have played since before launch and still have crap gear and no real amount of silver yet. It's hard to get for us I guess. With this update it will allow us to catch up and become more competitive. Probably not have the best stuff in game, but at least much better stuff. So, for us, it would be "pay-to-compete".

You think it'll change? You think those top tier players won't also buy silver AND continue devoting time to grinding? They'll get further ahead whilst paying, whilst you try to pay to catch-up, resulting in the exact gap that already exists. are you that blind?

Where can I request a refund?
Just email support and wait the usual 2-4 weeks for a response or what?

You can't. don't you remember? at the start of the game, there was a box that you had to check saying 'BY CLICKING PLAY, I HEREBY RENOUNCE MY RIGHT TO A REFUND FOR MY PURCHASE' or something like that

maybe alittle but by far not a lot. tjhey got power. they just choose not to use it. just like how it happend in archeage so to it will happen here. some people that worked at archeage are even here at black desert fk sake.

Even though if it was only Pearl Abyss that forced this upon us, I still feel Kakao Games has most of the responsibility here as publisher...

The best part is people are forgetting that costumes are typically in 3-5 pieces depending on it so one costume eats up your entire weeks worth of cash shop to marketplace selling. currently the no lifers are already making 400 mil+ a week. All this will do is make it so that casual players who have extra cash can now have a chance to compete with the no lifers and thats why people are upset. 

if you think no lifers also don't have wallets/credit cards you're mistaken

My feedback is that: You don't give a fack about this game.
You promised a game without "pay to win" and instead, slowly inserted more and more content like this, coming to make the same mistakes of other games in the past, making this magnificent product in a shit.

You ask us our opinions, but you don't give a fack about that.
After the value pack discussion you insert this new "pay to win"? You don't give a fack about your community.

This is our answer.
Fack your pay to win.

Keep in mind, Its not Kakao's will this happens, Pearl Abyss forced this on them and us, so dont hate Kakao for having to be the messenger of bad news....

 

Just read the post very carefully, and you will see by the way they worded it, that none of them is happy about this either.

I think this will serve as a bit of an eye-opener that Kakao willingly accepted this decision.

Answer this geniuses:

Whale puts up five costumes a week. Who exactly is buying his costumes to support whales p2w fund?

Answer: -----ing no one. No one is going to sink 50 mil+ silver for a cosmetic item that they more than likely already have, and if they don't have it, they still won't. They'll put that 50+ mil silver instead towards upgrading their gear that **is not** available on the pearl shop. Thus, the conclusion, the "p2w" whale doesn't sell anything to be able to "p2w".

truuuuu anyone who can afford to throw 50mil at a costume most likely will already have the costume or wouldnt waste silver on costume leaving all the costumes in the AH to just chill there for 7 days

Oh dear.. bad timing I guess ^^.

I hope they will not add this as this is a B2P game. And the latest stuff being added do not really fit within that model...

I properbly will feel real bad about having bought a game that is basicly turning f2p this quicly...Oh well wait and see I guess.
