cash shop Final solution for the new cash shop change

1 post in this topic

Posted (edited)

As a combatant of p2w in BDO, which had been promised never to happen by Daum (Kakao now), I finally came up with a nice solution, which should be in favor of all types of players.


1.) If this whole change is a matter of money for Kakao, then I would be quite fine with the change to a monthly pay-to-play model of the game, to bypass the p2w direction.

Requirements: - Monthly convenience bonuses for the people who preordered and bought the buy-to-play game (could also include merv's palette and others).

                          - The annulment of the recent idea of making the cash shop p2w.


2.) If it's not a matter of money then Kakao could easily add some npcs to the world which sell the items from cash shop. With this system everyone could get their desired items for ig money, which also was a main point of Kakao. To make sure Kakao won't loose every rl money purchase of their items, these npc shop items would have weakened effects of course.

Requirements: - Ig npc vendors for costumes and outfits: Clothes bought ig have their additional effects (like bonus combat exp) disabled.

                          - Ig npc vendors for pets: Those pets can't be bred to achieve higher tiers.

                          - Ig npc vendors for value packs: Weakened effects for the conveniences the value pack gives + availability of value pack from loyality shop with a better price-performance ratio.


What do you think of these solutions? Any thoughts or adaptations? Discuss!
