Bro, you can be sure that if the P2W bullshit still comes into play, that the large guilds will be boycotting it, making your attempts to P2W extremely difficult. Not only that, I've been talking to my guild mates and people from other guilds, they have the same mindset as myself. The moment we identify the P2W people, hordes of people, including myself, are going to make sure that your attempts at grinding will be so difficult, that you'll have to spend much more time attempting to grind after P2W, that you'll wish the P2W feature didn't exist.

never seen so many wanting to STOP p2w in any mmo ive palyed ever, and ive played many mmos in the last 15 years. if this outcry falls on deaf ears, this game will die very quickly after its implemented. daum reconsider what you are doing right now before its to late.

Personally, I won't be attacking the people that buy the stuff with silver. I'll only be attacking the plebs selling the stuff. Can't say the same for the people I talked to.

It will come in to play on Wednesday. All of your "No P2W" attempts are pointless.

With time it will only become more and more P2W.

And thank you for trying to keep PvP alive in this game. I hope you will keep on your promise to hunt us down :D

Where have all the flowers gone
Long time passing?
Where have all the young girls gone
Long time ago?
Where have all the soldiers gone...

When will they ever learn?

Daums claim that the game will be B2P and not a P2W model seems pretty clear in this video

Thanks for the bump up. ♥

Too bad it's meaningless as the change will happen and 90% of those guilds will remain.

As more awareness of this happens it doesnt even matter what they do come wednesday.

 

Their name will be tarnished as untrustworthy developer/publisher, forcing them into the cycle other companies have fallen into which is wait years in between releases so new gamers who dont know better fall into the same trap.

 

The best thing about this, is now gamers are aware these companies will even LIE TO YOU TO GET BOX SALES before going full on p2w. RIP MMO

The best thing about this is people like you are still learning and finding about this. Three hints they gave out it'd be P2W but you never learned.

- It was a Korean game

- Korean publisher

- Other versions of it were p2w

You and many others were successfully deceived and it worked. I find it very hilarious. I was here patiently awaiting for P2W to come.

You bought into their crap. You paid X amount of money for the game. You spent X amount of money on the game thinking you'd only purchase cosmetics. Most of you also bought value packs because the advantage was too good not to. And now BAM! And you call us being milked? LOL.

Gotta love when even the white knights admit deception on the part of the company as an argument piece. You been patiently waiting for 1 month?

 

I find it odd you are making fun of people spending money while defending the p2w transition. Its like the reasoning part of your brain was replaced by malice.

Your like what, 23?

@Caph I'm a first mate in one of Edan's top fishing crews, <ITC>. Unfortunately our Captain can't even cry his own thoughts due to his mutinous actions against the Admirals. Most of us are Conquerers pre-orders, and some of us are real Moby Dicks in the game. Many of us have fish to reel in and mouths to feed, but we find the time and compete anyway. No one is behind this chum. It's extremely shellfish and shortscoped to support this league of P2W, and we were already plenty salty at the Value Pack. The declaration has already taken the wind out of our sails, and much of the men haven't fished in days. If this isn't harpooned, the entire crew is jumping ship, bound to drown in the shadowy depths, and are going to plunder their old gold in return. It will ruin our deck and friendships. This dreadful tack would give the game terminal scurvy, and we'll never cast eachother's rods again.

Who says I'm a white knight? I just want P2W and it's coming. Anything before wasn't P2W enough for me to get at same rank or higher without any money farming. This upcoming change probably won't either if they limit but I can wait for future P2W stuffs. Happily enjoying Overwatch while waiting.

You were milked into spending and now are going to quit lol cuz P2W is coming. I guess too poor to spend more.

Do you even recognize your own contradictions? Cant wait for p2w, mocks me for being milked(I wasnt, I left before the 180 days, Kakao gets nothing from me), baseless assumption of my real wealth (hint: far greater than yours), while eagerly awaiting the milking of yourself.

 

 Your so shill its scary, even the mods have had to warn you now.

I guess buying coffee everyday at Starbucks is considered milking. I guess buying new phones when they come out is considered milking. I guess buying new PC parts is considered milking. I guess subscribing to Netflix, HBO and other networks is considered milking. I guess spending money on hobbies (gaming in this case) is considered milking. Oh wait, all those stuffs are happening because I can afford to and I choose to. 

Try again, friend.

You already used this logic train once before and it wasnt hard to crush.

 

Are you seriously comparing everyday expenditures to spending an unknown amount of money on pixels for ego in a video game? After the milking begins in full force when valk boxes hit, the average whale in BDO will likely spend enough money monthly to buy 3-5 brand new titles and get far more enjoyment out of them than a "chance" at upgrading a piece of a gear.

I can tell by your writing and reading comprehension you are the kind of person who ignores the facts that this game runs on hamsters, has massive balance problems, no support, ignores player base, and is willing to spend an unhealthy amount of money on a crap game DESPITE the glaring flaws that led it to this p2w / f2p mess in the first place.

 

Your the perfect target to be milked.

Video game is hobby for me as it's for most people. I just choose to spend some of my earnings on it for fun. I'll gladly pay for little pixels cuz I can afford to. It's okay poor class like you would wish you could do the same.

I can tell by your writing you're getting more and more jealous of me.

You just called BDO crap? Are you playing crap or are you trolling forums?
