http://www.kakaogames.com/

Kakaogames is just this little place(probably like any regular office inside)

but KakaoTalk is huge at corporate entertainment event if I'm a Kakao employee working at Kakaogames instead of Kakaotalk

I would call in sick than to show my face to be very honest. it would probably be as embarrassing as the contracted to work for Kakao that's from another company.

believe me young fella.

Financial Statement Q1 2016

http://www.kakaocorp.com/upload_resources/ir/siljeok/siljeok_20160707064048.pdf

Financial Presentation Q1 2016

http://www.kakaocorp.com/upload_resources/ir/siljeok/siljeok_20160512080734.pdf

BDOs money is included in the "Gaming Platform" account.

As you can see KAKAO is quite a big company and actually the "online" part gaming platform is just a portion of the money they make. The "Mobile" is the big money. KakaoCorps goal is to increase the profit of their "online" part. We can only assume that DAUM Game department are under some real pressure to make this happen.  I am also against it, its destroys the industry. But this is the reality we live in, the people incharge of Kakao that makes the forecast and the expected income budget for the gaming departments, have no idea who we are, have no idea about the forums, they dont care about the gaming industry. To them, we are simply a number.

Its no different then any other company out here.

Since the big bump in money for the gaming platform for Q1 2016 it because of Sold copies of BDO. I genius move to get some quick cashflow. The problem is of cource that no company in the world would accept that next quarter was the same amount of money or less, which will be interested to see when Q2 reports come out. Since they are taking the step, calculating how much these stuff sell in Korea, they can make an estimation of how much money they will make in NA/EU.

Sadly, all I am saying....its will happen and all our efforts, petitions, support and riot in game wont make a different if the financial report is going up. Kakao only recently got interested in gaming as a result of the possibility of money making. Make no mistake.

Copied from presentation:

-
Surging popularity of the Black Desert,a MMORPG published by
    Daum Game, in North America and Europe contributed to the
     record high online game revenue

The backbone of Kakaogames is mainly mobile game anyway, not this shitty buy one need to maintenance forever

have people listen to crying manchild BDO.

 

they should just call BDO black sheep online, since it's the most annoying asset of the company. I ask my mom(who is a Tencent shareholder, Tencent owning 10% of Kakao would say the exact same) BDO is bad money

I will admit.
This is something I am not happy about.

That
Being
Said.

There is report of KR not too happy that our version has received more attention than theirs since NA/EU dropped.

So long as we keep getting content and shit, I don't give a ----- how much they make.

The minute they stop providing to us is the minute I raise hell.

They got what they wanted, now will just try to milk the last remaining drops.

With the intelligence level seen ingame and in forums i bet that if they publish another game next month these guys will throw money at them again...

Enjoy the declining.

"The Corporation is preparing to strengthen its role in the global market and is planning to operate titles on an increasing variety of platforms. Apart from PC, consoles and mobile, Kakao Corporation is looking to expand to virtual reality devices as well."

"In other gaming news, Kakao announced a partnership agreement with Duodian Network, best known for the Android app emulator Nox App Player. The deal will lead to a PC emulator specific to Kakao Game that will allow users to enjoy many of our top titles on the PC."

"Since receiving its preliminary license last Nov., Kakao Bank has been hard at work, preparing to launch one of the first internet-only banks in Korea. On July 5th, the Bank shared their current progress with the Financial Services Commission and other stakeholders in a briefing at their Pangyo HQ. Kakao Bank is expected to officially open in the first quarter of 2017."

 

True. But I will remember and never buy anything from them anymore :)
