I wanted a thread with an unbiased poll to get a general idea how many people think this issue is serious enough they're considering the quit the game over it.

I'll personally keep playing the game even with this change. I played the KR version for quite a while and I didn't get the impression being able to list cash shop items had much of an impact on the game. People "no lifing" the game will still dominate regardless. So this is a nice way for people to get some cash shop items without a good real life income, and on the flip side, people with little time but a good income can catch up a little bit (but they still would have no chance to compete against the really hardcore players).

Actually im not sure about this one.

I dont know if i will quit. But atleast i wont spend any money on this game anymore.

 

There is no reason to pay money anyway if you can buy everything ingame.

I've got some games on Steam that I've been holding off installing because I like to keep a certain amount of hard drive space free.

My BDO folder is 36GB.

If they go through with the changes I'll be removing BDO and finally trying out those games I've been sitting on.

if they fix a price "low" enough for the CS item on the market, imho that's fine, and will not be worse than the p2w taxe reduction item.

I'm staying because I really enjoy the game. I do agree this is too far though. While I like being able to not spend real money on cash shop items, I would rather spend real money than see the game go down this road.

3 weeks prior to WoW:Legion. Such poor timing. I'd be impressed if Kakao/Daum didn't just lose a chunk of their players that were on the fence about staying or giving WoW another go.

I've liked your videos in the past, and I feel its sad to see someone that I enjoyed watching play a game now discussing such a mess of a issue. Best of luck Fluffy. Hopefully the poll at least gets seen.

If they implement these changes, I will stick around to see how things roll out. If the cash shop items are too expensive (would really prefer if they didn't add them at all), and Kakao does not respond to our feedback, I'm leaving. It was fun while it lasted, but all great things come to an end type of thing.

I'll keep playing until Camelot Unchained comes out. Won't be spending another dollar again.
At least the Devs of CU said the game will be a sub so everyone has access to all the same things.
It's such a shame that such a neat game was build around the cash shop.

I'll keep playing for a while, probably, but Daum/Kakao isn't seeing another penny from me.

I just don't want it to become like Archeage where there's no chance in hell that I, someone who works and has a life outside of game, can keep up with someone who can just slap down thousands of dollars and become a superhero.  I can barely keep up now but I'm managing.  I think this is a very bad game management decision.  Remember the NGE in SWG?  People who really put forth the time and effort felt screwed over by the devs and the game was never the same.

I think this change will be of that magnitude.  Might be a game breaker - literally.

They say stuff like: I'll never put a single penny on this game, I'm qutting, I'm not playing this game until it fixed, then watch all of them come back after awakening weapon comes to the server and they'll be like: 

79af6b3bc5b23131ace1d835c402fa444ebd7cfc

It is always like this:

1) introduce a new update, players don't like -> reaction.

2) Spam thread about it telling them y'all will quit if it isn't changed.

3) come back after a few weeks. 

4) Repeat cycle.

"I'm going to quit! This change is atrocious! Just....not right now...maybe next week, or next month....I might stick around for a bit to see what happens, then I will DEFINITELY quit." 

If you want to quit, why not just quit? The relationship is over, get out there and find someone new!

Daum / Kakau / Pearl Abyss / WHO EVER MIGHT READ THIS

This is your last chance to kick the breaks. You are going to KILL THIS GAME. You might think the money you make from this is more than what you have gotten before. But you are mistaken. THE MAJORITY OF YOUR PLAYERBASE IS GONNA LEAVE THE SECOND YOU INTRODUCE THIS.

WoW: Legion is gonna launch in like four weeks. Noone's gonna be sad about leaving this game. You will regret it.
