Definitely not dead, nor am I removing threads that adhere to the forum rules that every user agreed to when they made their account. At this stage I am taking time to read what everyone has to say, both here on the forums, Reddit, and the recent slew of e-mails I have received.  As you can imagine there is no shortage of such reading material, and once I have caught up, I will continue to do what I have always done; present your communications to all others involved.

That being said I will get back to work now, and as soon as I am given an update to share, I will be here to share it.

These personal insults directed at PM Jouska are disgusting, I have seen a lot of mindless behaviour on forums but this is the summit of all of them. You people really need professional help, get some therapy, please.

I trust you can also read the threads that were hidden quite happily because someone said a no-no word?

I'll take your word for it. Do you think you could be a bit more transparent about these changes?

  • Is the game going to be free-to-play following this change to our cash shop and marketplace?
  • Could you give us an estimate of the average exchange price for certain pearl items like costumes and pet?

PM_Jouska,

As you have been quite vocal in the past about this game not taking a p2w route, are you able to share your personal opinion on the upcoming change of being able to sell cash shop items such as pets, costumes ect on the marketplace?

Not likely, as he is a representative of the company making the decision.

I appreciate you poking your head out of the trenches, was getting a little worried Pearl Abyss had stuffed you into a hole somewhere. Good luck, @PM_Jouska. You're gonna' need it.

@PM_Jouska

 

Do what you need to do, Jouska. Remember that the emotions being presented whether in a very well worded and concise manner or in an over the top slew of negativity and uncontrolled outbursts are, in reality, because we (the BDO community) love this game and want to see it flourish. 

 

Thank you for listening to your player base.

We DO appreciate that.

 

Sincerely,

-Chorrosion Riaz

Oh no the new guy is very active. He's like a -----ing superhero at deleting threads complaining about the upcoming patch.

Man, if their gamemasters were half as fast at answering tickets DAUM would have the best customer service in the world.

Actually, the one time I made a ticket was not even a week ago and got to my turn in 2 days. The GM asked me if I wanted to confirm the refund request and immediately proceeded to it after I replied... all through email, not a chat.

 

Edit: On Jouska's reply, I actually have been keeping an eye on his profile, and he did seem to be silently lurking and reading things. That's my perception.

Your email legit was giving my gmail a cannot deliver message. I did a direct Copy paste from the contact Daum thread. Is the one linked there correct and my gmail is just broken?

I'd have had a heart attack if I had to deal with this mess we call a community. I've played a few mmorpgs before, never seen so much -----ing.

Sadly, this has been what gaming communities have turned into the past 6 years.

Getting more and more vocal too.

An "I don't know" would be an acceptable response to my questions - if you truly don't know the answers.

I blame entitlement. 

Sarcasm aside. I see far too much of it no matter what game forum/fan page on fb/twitter - you name it.

Every game, that is fairly popular to full-out widely known has people crying over anything these days.

He's busy reading every post to ban and censor people who present arguments against the P2W situation. Keeping disinformation at the forefront of a conversation is a lot of work for one person.

I'd mention specific people and posts but it's probably ban-worthy even talking about them.

That I will agree on, WoW did mess up the MMO world so we now have people how think just because they playing they are entitled to everything in game with zero effort.

You literally don't even play the game.

Stop acting like you have a valid opinion about the state of the community.

I quit the game a while back because I disliked the direction the game was heading in.
I am however still interested in the game and would like to see if it continues to go down it's current path or might make a turn into a direction that gets me to play it again.

If you dislike this I propose you write a very angry blog here to vent out your special anger towards me.

I still play, and this is the exact content I'm reluctant to bring up because I don't trust the CM not to try to hide it. It was a total scumbag move, but at least it let us know that those in charge of things are not to be trusted.

I don't go to Tumblr sorry.

It's not just special anger toward you, don't worry.
