Thats not true. Always had blast on sundays afternoons. Arenas, sausans, GvG, OWPvP.

Our guild is in war with 5 guilds but we even cant find their members running around.

People are buying them out blowing stuff up.

And

People aren't gathering because why would they when they think the games going p2w.

Or

People buying them out before they hit max price due to p2w.

Heidel 10 people going up-down the hill, 8 fishing, 5 in warehouse. Normally multiply this by 5 or more.

Most of the popular BDO streamers not wishing to play the game, playing other games or not streaming basically, right now none of the 10 bdo channels i have in favourites are online, and normally 2-3 were on at any time of the day. (NA/EU streamers)

Go and check, only russian streamers LOL.

Way to go.

People complaining atm and stop playing cause they think "we stop the change!". After 1-4 Week's after the Change to P2W all will be normal its just a little phase.

The People playing "P2W or not P2W" in Forum too so that might be a fact why less ppl in BDO. All are in Forum writing like hell.

I love it. Let people leave. It's only the cry babies leaving anyways. New players will catch up and it will begin all over again. Like a new chapter in bdo.

Exactly this.

Whenever I've been on lately I have seen lengthy strings of (usually failed) enhancement attempts.

It could be that people are spending all their silver now in an attempt to max their gear before the P2W crowd can start buying stuff out.

Don't forget, there's actually no need to be in a city anymore, since the fact you can now buy everything with transaction maids / storage maids, you will see a drop of people afking in cities because they can do their buying in the middle of anywhere.

Rage quitters bought out the marketplace and left everything out of stock. The GMs should resupply all the materials in marketplace.

Because a lot of people are either quitting, going super casual or taking a break over concerns about the future of the game.

People still playing are slamming as many enchantments as they can either to compete with players who will flex their wallet or in anticipation of price spikes as a result of that (which I doubt will be all that fast)

Hard to say for sure because there's no easy way to see who is and isn't active but I'm hearing reports from a lot of guilds either from membership or officers that attendance is down.

I played a solid 45 min this weekend and started cracking into my games backlog because I'm planning to play BDO ultra casually till I see how the change actually effects things.

Maybe the problem is EU? NA seems fine. UNO as well, and I have seen as many people as usual. /blame Brexit.

Is it me or does everyone who remarks on game already being dead play on eu?

NA seems like its still the same amount of people (edan at least), I still can't farm at sausans without seeing a ton of people, cities are still at their norm for the most part and even world bosses like mudster and whales are taken down like usual. Things constantly going up on the market as well. If anyone complains in channel chat or with a megaphone they are either ignored or told "shut up, we don't care" and the like.

Okay thanks.

Jordine is most populated so no wonders.

Last few pieces of Sharp shards left on AH.

Grunil parts were nonstop sold out on my server. Was trying to upgrade my gear and went to blacksmith as usual (my routine because grunil was sold out constantly) but opened marketplace and realised that i can buy all stuff i need. Not sure what to think about this.

Shards were never sold out for past month. Its just wierd feeling.

EDIT : Concentrated Magical black stone (ARMOR) sold out also :-O
