Interesting that so many people are so bent out of shape over this. Every MMO makes changes from time to time, heck the games usually make disclaimers to the fact that content will change from time to time.

Are the rewards so friggin significant that it's worth losing sleep over? Nope. Would they be nice to have? Perhaps. But who really cares? So other players got something you didn't. Big deal. Even if you had received the items, the impact would have been so insignificant that a week or few later you'd have forgotten all about it.

There are much better things to get riled over.

 

 

It's mostly that these rewards attempt to reward people for being loyal to the game and loyal players get screwed at literally every turn by being the least rewarded segment of the player base. It's rather ridiculous.

If so many people are and you're not, maybe consider it's us who are in the right? I mean, it's obvious that you werent affected but a bit of self awareness would be nice.

Dont you think it's ironic that it's a reward for loyal players > Only the most loyal of players are the ones screwed.

I mean, you cant make this shit up, it's beautiful in its own way.

How were loyal players screwed? Loyal players who hit 5k in the past weren't exactly complaining about the 5k reward when they received them. The only issue is that they didn't get what somebody else will receive when they hit the 5k mark. Complaining that somebody else got something that you didn't is ad-hominem at best. Especially when the rewards are so insignificant. The only concrete reward that anybody would hold on to would be the pet rewards, which the older 5k achievements awarded. The rest is general garbage that every player receives multiple times through various events repeatedly month after month anyway. Big deal.

Okay, so let's consider those of you who feell "are in the right". What exactly did you miss out on? Seriously, what substantive item did you miss out on that would have dramatically changed the direction you took in playing the game? A reward you would never have even considered if not for the petty "ZOMG! Somebody got something I didn't". What exactly are you missing out on? What items were they awarded that gave anybody else a leg up over you.

Just because somebody got something you didn't doesn't mean you got screwed. They were just fortunate. That's all. That simple. Big friggin deal. It's not like they were handing out game changing items.

Apparently that's "p2w elements".

Yes, that's something Kakao EU has actually said about Kama blessing and combat books. I know, I know, it's ridiculous.

wow so much venom finally directed the right way

We complain about communication all the time, they've just shown us they can't even communicate effectively within their own company so it makes sense why they're so inept at communicating with their customers

That's the way to support your most loyal players. :^) 

Go take the car you bought 5 years ago and ask for a refund for the current years price. Let me know how far that gets you.

If you've been using the same car dealership for maintenance and car repairs over 5 years you can be damned sure they have some loyalty program.

Hah! Yeah... HAHAHAHAHA! LOL! ROFL! HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Yeah, no. They have plans to "make it look" like they do... but no. I've spent years working at a variety of car dealerships, and the one thing I'll tell you... if for a moment you think you're getting a loyalty discount... you've been screwed.

Don't need to say discount. One of the number one rules in the Car Dealership industry is simple... Q: "When do you know when to milk them for more?", A: 'When they come back."

That applies whether you're there to buy another vehicle, or you bring your vehicle in for maintenance.

How would you know? Plenty of us complained about it on the Discord and at least one thread (that I noticed) on the forums here.

Tier 1 dog or cat? Hah. I'd trade it for a 7 day value pack, kamasylve blessing and book of combat in an instant.

That doesn't mean that they don't have loyalty programs to get people to come back. Customer retention is a fairly big deal in pretty much every industry that isn't a pyramid scheme or other outright scam. Which is why it's mindboggling that the people behind BDO keeps pissing on loyal players whenever they get the chance.

Hey, its Kakao..... no other MMO would not do it, but "KAKAO" needs to be "special" against their Customers....

Honestly I am not sure when utterly whiney kids took over this world but its really sad. These "reward" is free stuff that is pretty trivial I honestly couldn't give a crap if they deleted my 5000k free reward for simply being logged in. You kids seriously have no real concept of anything beyond entitlement anymore its disturbing....you are crying and losing your mind over trivial meaningless free stuff in a video game its really sad. You got a 5k reward they changed it it might be a bit better oh well get over it, alot of things improve as these games evolve. Move on with life and stop crying about trivial things.

Yeah... sure you may/might. But would you really lose sleep or get all worked up over it? A pet lasts for as long as you wish to keep it (and continues on as a breed should you choose). Is a 7 day value pack really THAT important? Nope. Kamasylve blessing... yeah nice to have, but in no way game breaking. Book of Combat? Please, those pop more often than they need to. 

Seriously... nobody pre-patch is left hanging. The pet is the only substantive item, and that hasn't changed.

The pissing and moaning is "ZOMG! I missed out on a temp item that I'd never known I didn't have if somebody else didn't get it!". Get past it. Move on. And keep on keepin on. You at best lost out on a minor item that's so inconsequential that it's not even worth noting. Get over it.

That brief moment when all the things you supposedly "did wrong" in the game turn out to be right, now all I have to do is wait 2 years.
