This is all very underwhelming, especially the 1 year event "reward". Disappointed.

And why not a special loot table on all world bosses for a week. One day? Really?

Oh and I tried to use that coupon crap and it didn't work. I want my $60 back until you fix it!

EDIT: MUCH MUCH BETTER THANK YOU!

Is this a joke?????

20% on a single item?  OMG the cash grabbing madness is out of hands...

Boss event rewards are a joke, cake is a bigger joke, specially after deleting milks and teas...

OMG what a crap management LOL

I'm usually one to defend Kakao, but a cake is a rather terrible "event" for your 1 year anniversary. Not everyone uses the cash shop and whilst 20% is a nice enough discount, there should be something more substantial for every player rather than just one piece of furniture. This just feels like your monthly events rather than celebrating one year of BDO. 

Finally something I agree with you about. This is absolutely terrible for people who have been here the whole damn time, yet they keep enticing the returning/new players only to spit in their faces later.

And it sounds like they're just extending the 'loyal' and new player login reward event, not providing anything new to, you know, loyal players.

          WOW

OH, I get it- Its 'your' birthday so everyone has to give you a present in the form of cash to the cash shop.

Q. What do our characters get when they are one year old?

Should really consider doing stuff like this on weekends, especially for the North American audience, unless there is some chart i'm not seeing somewhere that shows that the majority of players have access to the game on Fridays rather than Saturdays or Sundays.
I suppose it makes sense though, if staff doesn't work on the weekends like most of the working population so, yeah, that makes sense. Hm.

Still. Dang.
