Don't Forget, Allot is FREE!

16 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Allot of people are taking this "p2w" way too seriously. And even more are forgetting that Daum/Cacao has released BDO expansions for FREE! 

Yah the company wants money, that's why it was created, to make money, no one builds a software company because they love gamers and want them to have their voices heard lmao.

Still, don't forget that the average price of an expansion for an MMO is between $30 and $60 USD. Thus far we have had pirates, mediah and Valencia (3), with many more on the way. 

Speaking of more on the way; Daum has provided us with a long term plan, spanning over a year: naval combat, northern continent, dark elves territory and dwarf lands. All of which are free expansions. 

Not to mention all of the smaller updates every other week or so.

So just remember that we got a whole lot of free content out of the initial $30 that many of us paid for this game.

Some people here seem entitled, and are forgetting that the majority of AAA MMOs force their players to purchase additional content to enjoy their games. 

So before you start thinking about leaving the game over something which is frankly, trivial. Remember how much you get out of the initial price of this game; the same cost other companies would charge you repeatedly for something Daum hasn't.

What we have so far is literally a copy/paste with a few variables changed and some modules disabled.

We have NOT gotten $30 worth of development for OUR version yet (much less $50, $100 or whatever you've spent on the cash shop).

Hell, even the translations are straight out taken from a community English patch for the Korean client.

If an online service is free, the user is the product.

 

 And game designers used to make games FUN so people would buy them.

 

Not make them UNFUN so people would spend money.

 

Change in ideology that if you look at some of the PR recovery going on by the big p2w game creators, they are only now realizing how a negative image affects all their future products.

The 1 thing to remember is the game was released over seas so being free would be easier for them, being released over here well additional costs and taxes probably killed them

but he is right expanisions  normally cost 50+

 

Even F2p games all have cash shops,come on guys you are acting like this is a new thing

I'd rather pay for the expansions and not have the pay to win garbage.

Call it what you want, yes it's directly transferred from the KR version from a technical perspective, however expansions are still free. 

Many other company will charge the players additionally for an expansion in the origin nation and again in the nation the game is ported to.

Still a free expansion.

" Allot " is a verb meaning to allocate.

" A lot " is how it's properly used and/or written.

" Alot " is not an actual word, although many people think it is, and misuse it as such.

And yes, grammatical errors drive me insane! 

xD

On topic, I would actually prefer if PA charged for expansions and added a monthly subscription. 

I personally dislike p2w models.

Players should be rewarded for their effort, not for how deep their wallets are. But that's just my opinion.

It was free from the start for them, b2p for us and with an overpriced cash shop, your point?

-Expansions were already funded and made long time ago before they were implemented here so cost = technicians implementing it to the server.

-They won an obscene amount of money already but they want even more.

-OP you are retard.

Just wanted to say these 3 things... To the next topic.

Except nothing in this game is free because we all necessarily paid at least $30 for it.

I hate to disagree kind poster but Allot is actually very pricey! Go to their website and see for yourself. http://www.allot.com/products/traffic-management-and-optimization/smp/   Far from free. Kindly stop spreading misinformation that they are giving their service away for free.

First of all there is no need for insults. Second,  even tho expansions have allready been pre made almost every company will still charge you for them when implementing them to a new region.

Lastly this game originally cost the majority of the community $30 (yes some like myself opted for other more expensive packs). 

A base price point of $30 and free expansions is hardly breaking the bank for gamers.

Bottom line, for the initial price, this was a good deal.

So relax and if the $30 investment is to devastating for you get a job (or find a new one) or ask your parents for more allowance.

 

Except nothing in this game is free because we all necessarily paid at least $30 for it.

I said "allot", not "everything" 😉

Is it just me or does everyone else stop reading the OP when it's full of words that aren't spelled correctly?
