We support actual gameplay, effort, and time spent getting good/geared.

P2W can eat actual shit.

Hello, I am the GM of BlackDragon from the Orwen server. The majority of our guild does not support this game, and many will outright quit. When this game started, we were told that pay2win would not be implemented. Well, this is pretty much pay2win. So, allow me to rephrase:

BLACKDRAGON DOES NOT APPROVE OF THIS CHANGE.

I'd like to send my support to your effort. But honestly, I'm tired of fighting back against the P2W creep.

UntamedScarlet Muzak, Officer of The_Vanguard, 44 members strong, Orwen N.A. We do not support this potentially new P2W feature. Since the announcement we've already been discussing other options should this game go that route. Daum/Kakao/Pearl Abyss, you have a chance at something great here. Don't ----- it up.

P.S. props on the server upgrades, very very minor rubber banding here and there(3-4 separate occasions yesterday).

Croxus, EU. Leader of <Triquetra> 

I believe, that while currently this game is "No-life 2 win" and I hate that model, the fact people with 16 hours a day to grind endlessly, will always have a unfair advantage over those that only pay 2-5 hours a day, due to School/Studies/Full-time work etc, that this is NOT the correct way of dealing with this issue. Saying that, almost all B2P/F2P models have something similar, hell in SW:TOR it was "Hypercrates" of randomised goods, that could be sold on the market, and this was basically the ONLY way to make siginificant money. But that game went F2P. Many others have something similar, and if it was implemented correctly, with even stricter restrictions, lower prices, and only function items, it could possibly work.

Yes, the argument can be made that people with full-time jobs, less time but ability to "catch-up" via being able to sell some cash-sop items sounds ok on the face of it, Imo, all that will happen is a even more ridiculous gap between Pay AND Players (10+ hours a day) and the "normal" hours players who drop a little bit of cash. 

We paid for B2P Model, keep it at what you promised (Although yes I know, you did mention this even pre-release). Shift your focus into making the Game less about Grind, make life skills relevant again, screw some of the RNG, and make the enhancement system less punishing would be a way to attract more masses of people, not P2W.

I'd like to see the RNG/Grind/Nolife2win model somewhat adjusted, but we believe this is NOT the way to do it. We do not support P2W purely for the fact we love BDO, and want it to SURVIVE.

I am Paladine, Guild Leader of Dragonborne on Croxus EU.  All of Dragonborne's members FULLY SUPPORT the upcoming changes to cash shop announced earlier today.  We think this is a great way for Daum to maintain the game over the long term and allows people with real lives the opportunity to progress.  In a game where gear progression is everything it is important that ALL players have an opportunity to obtain that gear even if they cannot play 18 hours a day.

So again, ALL of Dragonborne's members FULLY SUPPORT this change.

Totally with you on this one and I'm enjoying the poopsockers going into panic mode.

I wonder how hard freelancer had to beat his minions on Orwen to post on the forums. Probably another ultimatum like: 

"Post your post against p2w and link it by x date or you're out of the alliance and we'll grief you and any of your friends and family for the next x amount of weeks for your noncompliance. Ty have a nice day. :) "

Rédemption :

I speak for the French speaking guild "Rédemption" (called "Rédempteurs" in game) focused on organised PvP and nodes war. We do not support this new P2W feature and any other P2W feature to come. We're not a lot but we do not want to play to a P2W game and we join all the others to say "NO TO P2W". There is no compromise to make : things from cash shop must not be selled in the market.

Actually, the guilds on Edan are slowly responding by changing their guild emblems, including top guilds like Gravity.

If they go through with this p2w update after seeing the massive volume of opposition, it will regrettably be suicide.

Drahcir, Guild leader of Transcendence Croxus EU. 

 

We have 61 members and we basicly won't have a guild if this change is made.

We are casual / semi hardcore guild and we don't support this change.

If your intent truly is to give people a chance to get pearl shop items without real cash there are many  other ways to do this that wont effect the game.

Hi I am the GM of TheBlackTides from Orwen. I speak for my 34 players. We absolutely do not support this change, this has crossed the line. We came to this game for the reason that it would not be P2W. This will completely destroy the competitive aspect of the PVE progression in the game, allowing players to buy their way the best gear in the game, and thus eventually also taking the competition out of the PVP.

We have seen this in a handful of games over the past several years. Changes like this always led to the immediate death of the game. PLEASE listen to our feedback, you said you want our feedback. We do NOT support this change and we WILL be leaving this game for another game if this change is made.

Thank you for reading this...

Well, sorry to say, not all of us can sit in front of the game for 18 hours a day. Or are you guys crying that people might catch up to you in gear so you can't take 2 regions anymore? Or what?

I work a full time job. I'm in Grind. I'm very well geared regardless of playing a class with rather slow farming speed. How can this possibly work?
