Thinking of returning...but p2w?

7 posts in this topic

Hi,

Ive been reading p2w over and over on many different gaming sites concerning BDO.  

Is this true?  What exactly did they put in the cash shop that you think qualifies as pay 2 win?

 

...no salt, legit curious.

 

Thanks

Certain pearl items can be put onto the marketplace for silver. So pretty much cash->silver. Although the prices are capped for now, so the silver you get for cash is about $2 for a mil. And only 5 items can be posted per week.

Are you competitive?

Any cash advantage would be p2w then.

Do you not give a flying f--- about being #1?

This game isn't p2w then. (✿◡‿◡)

Since there is absolutely no industry standard definition for p2w it might be helpful for you to provide your own opinion of what p2w means to you.  I suppose if you think convenience items are p2w then it is p2w for you.  From my perspective there is nothing p2w about this game.  Even with the cash shop items you can sell for silver you still can't buy any weapons or armor that is better then what anyone else in the game can buy with in-game silver from grinding.

Most of the people that have been running around screaming "the sky is falling... the sky is falling", over their opinion of what constitutes p2w, now look like fools because the dire predictions they were making, just like they did when the dyes on the cash shop were allowed to be sold on the market, didn't come true.  Some people just never learn.

You are able to buy perl items and place them on the Market now BUT:

1. You are limited to 5 items per week

2. Price is very low (30euro costume you sell for 20m ingame (before tax!)

These days everyone complains from everything. For me personaly this change is good. Now instead of spending 200 extra bucks in the game i can buy everything with silver which i will farm for 1 day. 

Same goes for Value Pack. It cost less than 10m. I'll gladly buy it for silver.

 

P2W my ass. Even if someone is able to get 100m per week (BEFORE TAX! and if he sells only costumes) what you gona do with 100m ? Buy 2 ogre rings in 2 weeks and fail for PRI ?

GTFO P2W weiners.

 

In the end even if someone get the same gear as you faster than usual when you both have equal gear the next thing that comes in play is the skill.
