What the KR Marketplace Looks Like

Those are only a few costumes too... What's to stop someone from buying 5 a week to sell? Before tax that 500 MILLION silver!

Node wars will end up having only the P2W people, because if non-P2W people participate, they become eligible for war.

Our version doesn't have War Upkeep Costs. Say hello to being griefed by sociopaths if you dare take a node.

Well, that's what killed BDO in KR. I guess if you -----ed the game up twice already (KR/RU) maybe third time is the charm?

Sad thing is, the least P2W version of BDO after this will be the russian premium subscription version...

But those costumes on Korean server are equal to 100 USD each.

thank you for the photo, now I have hope, I can finally afford something only available to no lifers before!

I will still be in much lower level than no lifers, but at least I can have the gear now.

Exactly. People don't even know our in-game prices yet and are jumping ship and deleting their accounts and I'm sitting here laughing.

This forum and most of the player base are so over-dramatic it amuses me to no end.

actually they increased channels number twice in the  last month, bdo kr is getting thru a pretty big player increase after the slump they got when most non-kr players moved to eu/na.

its eu/na numbers that have to be concerning if they decided such a drastic manouver to get more money, they HAVE to know that it wouldnt be received well by current playerbase

I'm convinced that the people who are happy about the changes don't value the hard work of others

They're only thinking about themselves

I take it your server doesn't have a bunch of guilds that have disbanded / merged / died out recently? Or do you not check?

It's bad enough that people were discouraged by the sudden gear gap Valencia brought.

People happy about this change... who say "YAY! I can have a costume now! And cute pets!"........ they don't care for them for their functions, only their aesthetics.

They are literally valuing aesthetics over competition. Aesthetics AT THE COST of competition.

But the items could sit on the marketplace for weeks and not even sell.

Keep in mind not all items possible to sell are shown in that image

did you actually read what I write? bdo kr = player increase.  bdo na/eu = player decrease.

if they decide that adversing so much the current playerbase its worth it in the hopes to get a new audience and new players thing have to be grim indeed.

This doesn't open any p2w door.  Everyone in this game can achieve the same results without purchasing from the cash shop.  It would be p2w if the cash shop included gear like weapons and armor that had more AP/DP or combat related buffs and even items like scrolls that give a damage buff than what is available in the game without paying at the cash shop.  But it doesn't so it's NOT p2w no mater how many people shout that it is.

It's stated directly on the website

Time is Money

Swipey Mc Swipe Face can now swipe to bypass the time restriction

In fact, he can pass up people who have been playing since launch

Does that sound fair to you?

He can now prevent those loyalists from progressing by dominating them

Jesus I can finally catch up to -----ers playing 10 hours a day. 

Right now node wars/red battlefield only have no-lifers, guys like me who work 10 hours a day have been missing out on PVP ever since +20 release. At worse this should even things out.

I get that the more time you put in the more rewards you should get, but us casuals love this game to and we've been pretty much neglected as far as PVP is concerned.

unless said players quit you probably aren't going to be doing any actual catching up since they'll be taking advantage of this system too. it isn't a one way street that only casual players can venture through love. 

for there to be actual balance in pvp their needs to be a rework of the entire system not a shiny new layer of p2w added onto it.

I play 10 hours a day. I don't have the stamina to grind constantly, so I trade and farm. And dig.

In all honesty I have made quite a bit of money this way.

But.

RNG took it all.

I'm tapped out.

And I can't compete via credit card.

RIP normies!

i will laugh at all the ppl who think they can catch up.... u boys will have a bad awakening... when u spend all ur money to just fail it to RNG... then u will sit there, u will look at the guy who spend alot of money aswell and went lucky... u will come to the forum and cry... its even hard enough to lose money you farmed for weeks bcs of rng... what will it be when u fail and u get nothing for 300€...

Are you damn stupid? How is a vanity costume available only to no lifers?! At the moment they'd have to buy it with real money, like every other person, via Cash Shop. For that they'd have to have an income, a job. It has nothing to do with grinding.

So think before you speak!
