Please ask all your friends/guildies to post here so that Kakao/Daum/THE MODERATORS WHO ARE CLEARLY NOT READING THESE POSTS - are made aware that it is indeed not a SMALL faction of the player base..

But a LARGE one. IF YOU WERE EVER GOING TO POST ON SALTY FORUMS FOR A GAME YOU LOVE, NOW IS THE TIME TO DO 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.

 

-The Kakao Team

Exactly the right plan. @PM_Jouska said "more access to pearl items".  Well smart folks follow the mobile gaming money plan.  Little purchases.  Hell you don't even have to change the amount we have to buy in Pearls i.e. 10, 20, 30.  Just lower the in game cost of the items and more people will buy pearls.  I run a business and we're in our 4th year of incredible growth.  How did we do it.... We bought way larger quantity and lowered all our prices 20%-50%.  You have no physical inventory so a big price drop wouldn't hurt you at all. And reimberse  players that have already bought items is EASY. If they bought $30 worth of stuff and you lower your prices by 50% then give that account back 50% of their pearls. That player will feel great and that happiness will translate into good word of mouth, more purchases because they feel well taken care of, and a renewed sense of loyalty to the game.

i honestly agree with this. however i do like that u can buy cash shop items on the marketplace. but if you were to do that i would limit like 1-2 items per week and not 5

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?

this is a faulty argument because there is a limit.

Yes i would like a refund too if this bullshit happens , and the kakao team pls resighn , shame on you.

think about it guys who would waste 50mil + on a costume. No ones gonna go crazy buying these maybe 1-2 person per day out of the 100 thats gonna be posted. Let the whales throw their money and rot in the AH. I personally would rather save up my silver and upgrade to boss armors or rather get my accesories to tri.

This is really kind of sad.

I just upgraded my PC and figured I'd try a new game out, and remembered hearing about this game. I heard great reviews so figured I'd give it a shot and pay the $50 to purchase the game.

Now I'm hearing all of this p2w crap and I'm going to have to put purchasing this game on hold to see what the result of all this protesting is... Shame.

So many specialists here. You all know better how to make great business model. Make better MMO game guys :D

Yep and I'm sure you're one of those "specialists" right? So why don't you go ahead and establish a company, hire a development team, pitch an idea for a game, and get one rolling?

Just because they haven't replied doesn't mean they're not reading our posts. We happen to have very active and involved CM's that do read our posts.  But yeah, they did invite us to voice how we feel about this, everyone should feel welcome to do so.

No, I don't believe this is good.  AA should not go pay to win like you told us it wouldn't... err I mean BDO shouldn't...

In my opinion this is a bad idea as going to make bdo drop a good portion of the player base it has left.
