Some History of Kakao Game's Stance on P2W

I still don't get what is the big deal with selling cash shops items on marker. We don't even know how it'll turn out. We can't see the future nor predict it. They even said they'll be control mechanisms to prevent a P2W aspects; They'll limit the cash shop items somehow. Please, stop with all this nonsense once for all and wait until they update, then you might judge. I'm pretty sure that they'll  make a pretty good job with limiting it.

This is a unique case because we can see the future and predict it. They are moving towards having a 1:1 parity with KR. We know exactly how it will end up, and KR is full, no holding back p2w.

So give us the Russion option to avoid the P2W and play on a server without the possibility to sell cash shop items, can't be that hard to set up if they care about customers that thought it would be a B2P game.

People that think this new change can play on one server and the rest on the other and we never have to face someone that we think payed their way to the top. 

It's just a dream. Russian P2P server went P2W a month or so after release, according to Russian streamer.

I'm so tired of the "we don't know how it'll turn out" argument. I've used it myself. Daum comes out with some bull new slightly p2w feature and we back down because we don't know how it'll turn out? We've backed down too much and they're just doing whatever they want thoroughly destroying the integrity of BDO.

Nobody should back down until they cancel this plan or explain in detail what the price limits will be. (We all know they be KR standard 50-95m per)

This^! If Devoire's *coughs* i mean Jouska's post would have said "and we limit the max value per Costume to 30M , pet 12M, value pack 35M (30Day version) and so on"
Than ppl can start doing some assumptions but seeing it as a korean vet it's just as i expected it to be blatant bait n switch as with an corean game release in the past 3-4 years.

And by the time you try to justify how no one can predict the future while one can clearly watch it on the KR version you make yourself look like a fool.
hate to break it to you really.. but it's the same publisher as KR with the same intentions of milking the casual/whale/mobile player crowd if you seriously can't see how this is going to play out, well... you know..? It's gonna hurt when it happens by maybe then ppl will learn~

Take a very close look at every single change they have implemented, every single business decision they have made, with *all* regions. It is incredibly clear they are moving towards 1:1 parity. We are even getting Awakening balance patches without awakenings. We got the same exp changes, and now we are moving into the exact same cash shop items. You call me a clown... but seriously. Look through it yourself. It's incredibly easy to see what their business strategy is.

Ok teacher. If the teacher says so I has to be right, there's no doubting.

Right. Thanks for opening my eyes. I'll go sell predictions on the streets right now and make profit. I hope I become rich soon.

Star Trek Online is still alive today after 6 years, because it switched to F2P.

It's a zombified carcass. All the broken promises and plain lies from Cryptic/PW makes Daum/Kakao look like saints. Still, the genre has practically no competition and the game can be occasionally fun.
