    • WICHTIG: Das Forum ist umgezogen!   05/04/2017

      Damen und Herren, wir bitten um Eure Aufmerksamkeit, es ist an der Zeit umzuziehen!
        Wie wir bereits angekündigt hatten, ist es ab sofort nicht mehr möglich, neue Diskussionen in diesem Forum zu starten. Um Euch Zeit zu geben, laufende Diskussionen abzuschließen, könnt Ihr noch für zwei Wochen in offenen Diskussionen antworten. Danach geht dieses Forum hier in den Ruhestand und das NEUE FORUM übernimmt vollständig.
      Das Forum hier bleibt allerdings erhalten und lesbar.   Neue und verbesserte Funktionen warten auf Euch im neuen Forum und wir arbeiten bereits an weiteren Erweiterungen.
      Wir sehen uns auf der anderen Seite!

      https://community.blackdesertonline.com/index.php Update:
      Wie angekündigt könen ab sofort in diesem Forum auch keine neuen Beiträge mehr veröffentlicht werden.

The new players are other companies trying to make MMOs and not actual players. If you can only get a fixed amount of cash from people, than it is safer for companies to make a cookie-cutter MMO than hoping an innovation will be the next "WoW killer".

In this article you can also read how devastating this regulation was for the online gaming industry:

Those weren't the best news if you wanted to work in the business.

If a business reached the point where it required such regulation then it was a broken business model anyway. I'd prefer self-regulation but the vast majority of business entities cannot be trusted to behave in a way that is both good for them and good for their customer. It's a money-making business for the most part.
