Thank you, i know this, but i don't want use 10 contribution point for this event.

You know you can hand the fence back after you're done with it right?

Ohwell, it's just a silly tree that servers no purpose other than +20 interior points which don't matter for anything anyway.

Absolutely nonsense.

Absolutely. They can't sell artisans memory in bulk if they actually make getting memory fragments more interesting than eating lead paint.

 

I have never ever stuck with a game cause they handed me free shit. I've stuck with a game cause it's a good game. This is, shockingly, also the case in BDO, but the obvious flaws (desyncs, the constantly pushing the pearl shop, the free 2 play model sold as buy to play, etc etc) is wearing really really thin. If you're playing for "free stuff" you're probably in the wrong genre of games entirely.

 

So what am I doing that you're not doing right now?

Kettle. Pot. Black. Etc.

 

It's not nonsense. Go through the entire forums and read how many people want free stuff and more free stuff and more. I am a computer graphics engineer, an entrepreneur, and run my own business very successfully in fact that I can spend a lot of free time playing games that I enjoy while I reap the profits. Guess what.. Free stuff keeps business alive. Free pens, free quotes, free coupons, free discounts, free this, free that, free free free. Take a business class or two.

Wait.. you want them to sell more items in the cash shop? Isn't that extortion? forcing people to pay? forcing P2P/P2W? Again you are crying because you are what.. bored and want it more interesting?

BDO is not a good game its a freaking amazing game. You are crying about free stuff so there lies the truth about your actual thoughts. For months I played without buying a single item at all. I leveled faster then my co-players and raised my gear faster and easier then they did. Oh and guess what.. they bought items long before I did. It boils down to how you play, strategy, time wise and so on. So many people have proven you do not have to pay to be at the top and have end game items.

I'm playing cause this freaking game offers so many ways to play with so many different events. I am never bored!! I even brought over a lot of my friends from rl and other games and they are hooked as well.

To answer your question. You are being a pessimist. You think you have all the answers and you do not even work for them.

I am being an optimist, a grateful one and I am trusting that they know what they are doing. After all.. look how popular and successful this game already is.

No, this is what we call advertising. How is this related to getting free shit shoved down your throat in a game?

Yes, well, I've been playing since launch and I know that they don't.

I'd love to see your source on "how popular and successful" the game "already is". Is this going to be the silly infographic that showed off some 55k level 56+ characters and 24 pen cadry rings in EU? It's been debunked, repeatedly, and I say this at risk of getting assaulted by Plunge and War.

This is probably a dumb question, but is there anything a person can do if you accidentally "remove" the cherry blossom seed after planting it?

Why should they give "Rewards" to people that are not logged in to play? They are call REWARDS!

Thoses reward are only "log in time based" => you dont have to do anything particular to get them, you dont have to do any deserving action to get thoses. So, why FORCING you to be logged to the game ( Since you can loggin, have your character stand still in a city doing jack sh#t, and minimize the game )

On a player perspective, its USELESS.

 

Its like the black spirit dice "mini game" why cant we just roll the dice the 3 time right away ? what's the point of making you wait 1h between each attempt ? None. ( on a player point of view, but sure, for them, they are sure to have as much ppl possible logged during 3 - 5h per day because of that )

 

So tell me now, how come that have to be different from the monthly attendance reward, where you get the stuff directly when you log in ?

Why, on a player perspective, you have to wait for 5hours to get the 5blossom ? why cant we have them all directly ?

Free stuff shoved down your throat? Stop playing the game then. You are not forced to take any of the free items. If you had any business knowledge/skills you would not be complaining. Again they make more money than you will ever see in your entire life.

Doesn't matter how long you have been playing, you are just a troll complaining about every little thing you can. Most likely because you are a miserable person looking to blame the world for your dissatisfaction in life. Hence the "Can I be more disappointed?" tag and the face palming pic.

Anyways I am out. I have better things to do. Good luck with your disappointment.

Indeed, go try to convince someone else that 'free pens' make tons of business for people cause it really isn't sticking here.

Little typo there. Think it's supposed to be house instead of hose ^^.

Says someone who must never make a mistake?  They've just told us about an event they did, one they didn't have to do and YOU.... point out a typo?  Really??  No thank you?  Just point out the typo?  Unreal!!!  

Thanks Devs for the event!  You make all the typo's you want and Honstermunter (<<<intentional) will just have to live with it!  :-)

Shinning box only good if you can sell your Black Magic Crystal.  You can get 4 shinning box in total so that mean you have to sell 4 black magic crystals.

 

Resplendent seems to be the best since you can always sell those and almost everyone need to use it at one point.

Forcing people to stay logged in for 6 hours a day to claim this isn't rewarding, it's extortion.

LOL, Jeynar  :x

You guys are complaining about this as if it's a new thing. We've had events that require you to be logged in (not even actively playing..) almost since launch. At least now they've put a low cap on the amount of times you can claim a reward, god forbid they return to the old BSA days, wherein you could claim every hour 20 minutes (to be honest, I don't remember how many times they could be claimed.. 5? more?). Ugh, those additional rewards for merely logging in and checking back periodically were awful. How dare they expect us to "participate" for rewards?? It requires too much effort to leave my client on for 5 hours in a single day. I want rewards merely for having an account. 

A game that encourages players to stay online with a variety of profitable AFK tasks (which allows players to make progress while still having a life) and rewards you for doing just that. God, that's terrible. How dare they ask that I leave my client running?! THAT IS SIMPLY ASKING TOO MUCH OF ME FOR ALL THESE PRIZES. I AM ENTITLED TO BE SHOWERED WITH GIFTS MERELY FOR BUYING THE GAME.

** Just to clarify, this is sarcasm - I know it can be hard to tell it apart from other complaints. 

We get free stuff. Sometimes valuable stuff. Stuff that helps it not sting so bad when an enhancement fails. Stuff that's worth silver that can be applied toward gear, furnishings, pearl items on the market, or whatever tickles your fancy. Just as a way to encourage players to log in, like every other MMO with events. Except, in the case of BDO, we can stay online while AFK - while almost every other AAA title boots you for being inactive for ~30 min. It's literally the bare minimum in regard to participation. I don't know how much easier they could make it for you, because all I'm seeing is "JUST GIVE ME THINGS, KAKAO". Be constructive - what do you want instead. Do you want 5 rewards immediately for logging in? Do you want to eliminate all rewards, since leaving the client running for 5 hours is too much for you, and yet at the same time, you don't want others to have the prizes you opt-out of? Do you want to eliminate all participation requirements entirely?

Also, events that encourage players to log-in don't somehow negate problems with the game. I can't untangle the mental gymnastics required to damn a developer for trying to encourage an active playerbase, nor the idea that a dev can't host events so long as there are bugs, or so long as you have a negative opinion. Like that will ever change.  

Side note: this isn't the game for you if you intend to only log in for an hour (or less) now and then. Also, not the game for you if you loathe it so much that staying logged in for 6 hours is torture.

Do we know what happens if we don't collect the reward right away? So say we have been logged in for 2hrs straight will there be  2 cherry blossoms to collect in the rewards tab or will there be only 1?

Also do we get the rewards if we only log in once every hour  and then hop off or do we have to stay logged in continuously for the rewards to be awarded?

I just want to know if they expect us to collect them hourly or if we can accumulate them and collect them when it's convenient for us.

Doesn't seem to really matter as I'm not getting any of them any more.   I got 3 the first day, then 2 the next day.  One yesterday.  None since.  I've been on for hours with one character and have jumped around with others. 

  Getting nothing.

And I've been saying they're bad events since then. The reason they're even a thing is way too transparent and they add nothing to the game.

It's a sad situation when the best event we've had was the one for golden fish, backpacks and daggers.

Seems like you only get awarded them hourly based on total playtime for the day. Meaning you cannot just log in once every hour to collect a cherry blossom. Makes sense considering it's just like not logging in at all one day and then getting 5 blossoms for doing so.

I don't play BDO for freebies, be they daily log in rewards or event rewards, however since I am virtually logged in 24/7 obviously I collect them if possible. It is irrelevant to myself as to why the events occur since any way I look at it, I benefit by logging in/playing a game I enjoy. Sure, the events are often repetitive but the rewards are free and often convertible to silver or upgrades, ergo a  bonus and I appreciate them as such.
