Collective attempt at preventing p2w in BDO

"Some market watchers, however, said Kakao has been investing in games to use them as a cash cow while shifting its focus into the online-to-offline, or O2O, business that draws potential customers from online channels to physical stores. “The O2O business, which is considered Kakao’s future growth engine, needs some time to generate profits. The game business appears intended as a temporary cash cow.” said Kim Dong-hee, an analyst from Meritz Securities. "

After reading this, it seems that all this is working as intended. They have even started a new project. Who cares, if this one dies in less than a year.

Feeling discouraged :(

I cannot speak for a large guild, but I have 3 friends that all play this game with me. The only time I nearly quit the game was over the static node war times (if you work during that time, you can never participate). The new P2W selling cash shop items is the last straw for me. I will 100% quit this game without a doubt and I will encourage my 3 friends to do the same if this goes live. I do not want to participate in a P2W game.

I'm glad they announced this early. I was just thinking about buying the new 200 weight increase and a maid. Definitely not spending any money on the game until we see whether this goes live or not.

Update to my previous post above:   Two out of my three friends that play the game agree that we will quit if this happens. The third will quit because he doesn't want to play without us.  So that is 4 people lost if this change goes through, and none of them post on the forums, so there is a huge silent group out there that are also going to quit and not just the people spamming the forums.

I can guess they are not gonna even bother answering or making an official statement. They are just greedy AF, i don't think there is anything the community can do, even with such a high amount of players NOT APPROVING this change.

I hope i'll be proven wrong and they change their mind.

NA: Orwen <ISG>

<ISG> The Inner Sanctum Guild stands united 100% against this change. Kakao there is still time to remedy this and prevent the most epic failure in publishing history, ArcheAge included.   Your founders believed in you, counted on you to do the right thing and put our wallets behind you in an investment in not only the game but you as the publisher.  We believed in the buy to play game presented to us and rejoiced when you told us that we wouldn't have pay 2 win mechanics in the game.  Respect the voice of your playerbase and get back in touch with the promises, commitments and publishing ethics you presented to us with when launching the game.

The official response was Jouska`s so called "polish" of the original announcement, which is basically hiding details like the list of items that would be made available on the MP such as pets and costumes. Oh and he also replaced the bit that said that the playerbase feedback was paramount to them to " we are open to it". This probably says a lot about the direction this will take.

Recent developments have been a huge dissapointment, the P2W changes, if they go through, will be the final nail in the coffin. I hope they listen to the community, but I have a feeling that greed will win over the passion of their fans.

Hello, I am the leader of Oasis on Uno Server.  Our guild is 100% against this change.  Wallets shouldn't be used to be good at this game, time and effort should be!
