No.

I'm not sure what part of "Open world game" you do not understand, but it means there are no instances.

should be a toggle options so people that want to pvp for spot can pvp for spot while carebears can go solo own instance but sadly this server is bad enougth and doing this would kill it

Grinding is already incredibly boring; instanced grinding would just take the game over the cliff for me...

I would rather see them drop the karma system completely, give peeps a little loot if they kill another player, and bring back some little xp loss on open-world kills, (maybe not the full 1% they had before... which equates to HOURS of grinding to get back at high 50s level... but whatever works out to something like 5 minutes of grinding to get back).

one can only dream though...

Tired of people telling you spot taken or leave whenever you grind? Instanced dungeons or grinding spots will help a lot! At the moment, a lot of people leaving game or forcing to be lifeskillers just because of this problem.

Nope. Imo the PvP isn't even the problem. It's the insane gear gap coupled with everyone from 150 GS to 450 GS competing for the same location.

My absolute favorite days were pre Valencia, pre +20 days. The gaps between nolifers and casuals was clear and apparent but could easily be overcome by being a better player. PvP was fun rather than a one sided wombo fest.

Now we can never have that back nor will anything be done about the massive gear gaps nor should it strictly be. BUT

We can definitely incentivise Valencia spots so that geared people can go there signs compete against each other and lower players can stay in mediah. Effectively creating ladders/brackets for open world pvp without actually restricting anything

Valencia is good, money wise atleast, better then sausan or pirates, some are with decent exp too. 

Problem is for geared players there are better geared players, so they still go sausan, where u can play while jerking.

Defeats the purpose of open-world pvp.

Doesn't necessarily have to be instanced, though I voted yes, based on the current system and its problems: The easiest and most profitable grind spots are currently centered around Mediah, with a large range of players (gear, level) potentially looking to compete for them. If Valencia had comparable grind spots for the higher level and better geared players, the population could spread more easily and OWPvP would suddenly make more sense, instead of just being an unfair one-shot/karma-bombing fest.

There is also an absurdly large difference between being able to grind during off-hours compared to having to grind during prime-time (especially with node wars going on). Instances and/or generally more spots would certainly help with that.

I really don't see any problems with instancing. Carebears and pvpers can do whatever they want. We already have instancing on boss scrolls, why can't they implement that on a larger scale? I mean sure it takes load on the server. Why not make it client-sided for solo players. The instancing code is there, they just have to manipulate it in order to achieve it. Or they could also make sub channels for grinding spots, or a queue system where you can queue up for a grinding spot. All they need is time to implement it. It benefits everyone, people would buy more weight increases which means $$$$ for PA and Kakao, just to extend their grind times.

We could also make the game instanced for the perfect single player experience.:$

Does it matter by now? It's pretty clear by now that they don't want open world PvP to be around.
If we're gonna go PvE game with a node wars feature, might as well go full memes on it.

good idea! would love to see it... idc to lose something... its an open world game so why not? Then i can farm the pleb... steal him some % and then he can go to the  pleb area and lvl it in double the time up again. Sounds perfect fine.

I have many friends that went to life skills due to grinding issues. A fellow good friend of mine Otka can't do grinding at all without me being around to help him due to pkers, and he has bit over 400 ap dp. "a lot of people leaving game or forcing to be lifeskillers just because of this problem" The amount of people is almost nothing 5-8% MAX in comparison to the total population of BDO. If you convert from % they are quite few.

Actually yes, but only after a certain threshold of players in the area is passed.  

So there can still be competition, but if its insanely crowded (like peak hours on weekends) it can be instanced, ie. a new instance is created with the same threshold -- so there is still competition in the instance as well.  having to channel hop to find an efficient grind is a huge asspain when the cd is 15 min :T

Say what you want, but you agree with most of the people that the most efficient spots are contested. We all want to be efficient. That extra 1-3m an hour makes a huge difference in the long run, and that's not limited to money only, I'm talking about exp too.
