Never really post on forums, but I feel like I have to with this. Black Desert is coming to steam, great right?
No. Anyone that owns Black Desert but wants to use it through steam has to REPURCHASE it again.

It's incredibly dumb, obviously it's to milk people out of spending more money for a slightly more convenient way of playing. How about they fix their servers before adding more players to them.

The thing that makes no sense to me is the starting over part...  L...  O...  L...  over my dead body, I'd rather quit and uninstall before I would start over.

It's a cash grab plain and simple, meanwhile the game will be unplayable if they don't upgrade the servers to account for additional players. It's already terrible on node war nights, so if there are a lot of new players or new accounts from existing players made thru Steam, if you are even able to get logged in then you might get 10 fps at best for 5 minutes and then dc.

Also Rimworld is able to link non Steam accounts to Steam, and that is developed by literally one dude as opposed to BDO/Pearl Abyss. So that is why I say it is a cash grab on Kakao's part.

Behold the amount of fks they give by your forums posts, their players, and their promises. (See that "We will never bring weapon exchange coupon into the game" and look at Shakatu's seals rewards, and also, look at "We will never enable pearl items to be sold on marketplace" and after that look at the game's "Pearl items" tab from marketplace)

That's a bit strange but not uncommon, Elder Scrolls Online goes the same way, even if you own it you have to repurchase it on steam - so far I've seen only two shining examples of unificating the player base, Elite Dangerous gives you codes to steam for free if you own the game by other means and people at gog.com with their policy of adding selected titles to your gog library if you already own them on steam, I wish BDO would take the Frontier path in that matter, would be fun.

We will never bring weapon exchange coupon into the game

They said you would never be able to buy them with real money, lo and behold the seals are available to every single player. 

We will never enable pearl items to be sold on marketplace

They said that pearl trading would not be available at the time of the Beta and IF it was implemented later on there would be restrictions. 

 

Please learn to read English before you start lying to people. :)

It's strange that BDO has the same account limitation that every MMO adding Steam support has.

 

Good post, OP.

Is it because they want to keep full income from current playerbase?

Its because they have to cut Steam in on all the cash shop purchases from the Steam users and like stated above PA/Kaokao will keep the money from existing players
