Memory Fragment market (Eu)

93 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

So is this worth looking into by PA yet?

 

The difference in enchanting experience between Eu & NA and even KR, other regions, i myself enjoy enchanting despite i have very bad rng so far but managed to have a go at Pen kz/dand (failed) Link and surprisingly i am more motivated to keep going but the mem gate is killing it for me, sharps/hards are easy cuz i gather decent (master 5) and silver is a lot but to force me to run scrolls is just stopping me unlike in NA and other regions, can i please have a region transfer coupon?

Does not matter the reason of other regions having a better market, they spent more money or use fishy methods or eu is lazy etc etc, the outcome is better experience for enchanting, i just think the eu community is no speaking out this issue, even with the log in rewards is no solving it.

 

NA

Eu

Remember this is not about NA vs Eu vs KR, more about solving an issue in Eu and maybe one of the gms can help us by bringing this to PA's attention!                  @GM_Dew @GM_Caramel @CM_Aethon

1. Many players from EU left the game after they implemented the option to sell Cash shop items in-game's marketplace.

2. Enchant success rate on EU is lot higher than NA

3. EU players dont give a shniet bout boss weapons/armors 

Those are my thoughts, but also you should check the server's population, and from there you could get your answer.

Yup, its quite sad. You dont only have to put up with the degrading RNG which can set you back a lot but you also have to deal with the limited but available access to memory frags and shards.

2. Where on earth are you getting that bogus information? If in any case that would be true then that would cause one hell of a uprising in the communities.

3. You can be very certain that EU players do give a damn about enchanting their gear, especialy boss weapons and gear. The amount of upgrade items sold in the market does not determine whether the playerbase gives more or less -----s about upgrading their boss gear. One thing to kill this point is that in EU, all of the memory frags + shards are instantly bought out 24/7. In fact if the availability for those items would be far more available, im quite certain our list of sold items would be far more bigger compared to NA.

Or maybe in NA they're more used to swipe a card get 100 artisan memories and GO Enchanting, done, don't need those leftover memories, SELL. And In EE we're like little hamters, we like to hoard things to ourselfs in our little warehouses...

 

2. Enchant success rate on EU is lot higher than NA

Now that is a brilliant theory...not.

But if it were true imagine how pissed people would get :P.

 

Also less memories would imply that maybe more are used on personal stuff and still fails so you need more. That would indicate the opposite of your theory

Thoughts? Why are you stating them as facts than?

NA just uses artisan memories a lot more. And there is also a LOT more fishers.

You have this so completely backwards it's almost funny.

Remember the Census, and read it again: https://www.blackdesertonline.com/news/view/350

 

The issue is that EU is enchanting a hell of a lot more than NA, as shown by the amount and type of PEN items available. Therefore the "enchanting market" is a lot more competitive which leads to there not being any memory fragments available. It's as simple as that.

5.8M, 800k, 1.1M sold

Available - Relic - 3,721 Fbook - 143, Pila - 78

Sold - Relic - 6.95M, Fbook - 1M, Pila 661k

Gotta look at this closer but, the EU maybe uses their fragments and NA sells more?

As was said, its msotly due to artisan memories... NA needs less MF since they can just swipe to repair, while most of EU playerbase cant afford such a luxury... Hence in NA leftovers are sold, while in EU most of resources are used...

Its just the result of bad pricing range for EU... Same goes for pets, VP and costumes... Any item that has any relation to cashshop is scarce in EU... High demand and low supply...

Now, what would be another interesting thing to compare is the highest fishing ranks. I'm pretty sure there's a lot more fishbotters on NA than EU.

Even if there aint, the highest ranked fishers are people who exploited fishing exp bug back in the day, which was then made as an event for NA... So you have few exploiters from EU vs anyone who participated in event from NA... So NA should be on top anyway...

According to Cuidah in the bdo link he sent us then in 1 year EU caught 336 mil fishes and NA caught 405. I cant see how that 70 mil difference can cause such a gap,
