Posted

Hey

I'd like to share my notice. I mean price of pearls and items from pearl shop. It's some kind of Joke I think...I do understand such thing in F2P games...but we all PAID for this game and not so cheap if I may add...So Can somebody tell me...why the hell 1 single costume costs 3000 pearls?! (2700 now with discount). It's 30 Euro. It means It's more expensive than entire full game!! WTF? Oo are you crazy?...

Want me to piss you off even more?!

EU get's screwed some more since these idiots made the US and EU prices the same.... BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW

US$ = EU EURO (Sorry don't know the sign and too lazy to look it up lol)

I mean how this doesn't bother Europeans is amazing, except you really can't do anything about it.

It's like PA doesn't know there are different currencies with different values... so I guess they aren't familiar with...

You guys are literally overpaying for each cash shop item compared to U.S!

Get to level 56
Farm elrics or something for a couple hours
Buy said costume from a whale

The only thing really ridiculous about the pearl shop is that 800 pearl one time appearance change coupon. I cant imagine it exists for any reason other to try and trick people.

Yeah, and the most stupid thing is that people is paying 30 euros/dollars to get 20 million silver ingame that i can get in 2 hours cooking afk...

There is a topic saying that white knights kill MMOs, if people were not braindead and would have not bought from the beginning they would have lowered prices, but... as there are tards paying... not needed.

Well, it's not only the costumes, which now can be bought with silver, but other things like the Costume coupon exchange, that thing is cash shop only and it's worth half the price of a damn costume. The horse breeding resets, extraction tools, bardings, boat and cart accessories, the "utility costumes", etc...are cash shop only, very expensive for a buy to play game. 

Still, we all know this won't change since Kakao is gone full Korean mode and is treating our version as if it was a free to play game from the beginning.

Heaven forbid you help pay for the cost of keeping the game running and keeping the Devs paid for working.

Yea that one time $30 purchase for sure was going to keep the game running for at least a few years.

Don't they throw stuff in for buying the game too? If they do, what's the value of those items?

I've spent about £500 on costumes because they are GORGEOUS.

If you look at any other MMo the costumes lack sooo much detail than these. You can tell that a lot of them (not all) are really well crafted. I would pay the same in any other game if they looked as good, but they just don't.

Friendly reminder that if you convert your coins to pearls, you actually get a bonus so it's less than $30. (✿◡‿◡)

I've been thinking the same thing. I have a friend visiting, so I haven't had time to itemize it, but I suspect when the game goes free to play, the $30 dollar pack will stay just as it is. Meaning, people aren't really paying to play in the first place, they're paying for goodies.

Nevertheless, BDO has proven that the gaming community is dumber and richer than previously believed. Those of us in our fancy outfits have probably inflated the prices of all future MMOs.

You think BDO is expensive ? if you wanna play WOW , the game that is still standing with the biggest revenue/sub/players you have to pay for EVERY expension and on top of that you need to pay 15$ a month and you're going to complain about BDO a game that cost 30$ with free expension and no sub fee ?

It's unlikely your funds will go to employing a staff of people making decent wages.  Most likely it won't go into the future development of the game or be invested into the product.  Instead your donations will sit in a few peoples pocket so they can live an extravagant life style and laugh at you for thinking the money is going to "pay for the servers".

Actually this game isn't all that expensive and there are long term cost.  Nobody is forcing you to buy anything off the cash shop but if you like BDO and want to support it you should purchase items from the pearl shop or buy pearl shop items from the market with in game silver.  And, you will get all of the game expansions for free.  I think it's a really good deal for such a great game.

I think they've gone past glue at this point, maybe the thin layer of slime that used to be the dead horse?

I would gladly pay that in this game to get: too many outfits/looks/whatever to count and the ability to make the armor I am wearing look like any of it, the ability to change my appearance at will, the ability to respec when needed, access to countless mounts/pets, etc., you get the picture.....M

As was said... 24M for a costume aint that much... And they are posted quite often... Best to camp market when limit resets...  Though pets/VPs are pain in the ass to get for silver...

How many years had WoW been going before all those features mentioned were implemented??

Stop comparing new games to a decade old game.

Wildstar started out with those features, sadly they imploded, in large part due to no endgame.
