BDO on Steam? Nah.

separated server for steam BDO ? that's strange yeah.

Get rekt if you have kashkow account - game ?

Wondering where people like you get this misinformation from? Just because a game releases on steam doesn't mean its brand new servers coming with that, in-game you wont see the difference between a player launching through steam and those who are not if they don't tell you them self for some reason.

This is just one way to try and get more players to the game.

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)

 

 

Yeah... way to build up trust with their players/customers. But for the future we know not to give a sh't about any promises.

Or that was just an interrogation because we didnt had any information, and if you took that as "information", maybe you need to stop play stupid a second, and get how that was wrote in the first place before looking to bash what i said ?

 

Thanks for your pointless intervention tho ;)

BDO doing great on steam, http://steamcharts.com/app/582660#All

Context, for those who didn't know: BDO is scheduled to release/unlock on Steam on May 24th.. so obv. just devs showing up on the charts (all tech guys at once? might explain a few things...). Nonetheless: sensitive_chuckle.gif

Why the hell do you people even care about the steam version?
99% here already have the game installed. You'd be insane to reinstall it just because "le steam xDD"

We've known this since Value Pack (or even earlier). It's not really news.

Cause of steam wallets.

Still just 1 server per region.

Wait, so instead of:

Real Money > Daum Cash > Pearls > Pearl Shop Item

It's:

Real Money > Steam Wallet > Daum Cash > Pearls > Pearl Shop Item

Or of course we could go the full silly:

Real Money > Steam Gift Card > Steam Wallet > Daum Cash > Pearls > Pearl Shop Item

That and people think they can make a ton of money off of selling cards, or they have a buncha money on steam wallets they've been irking to spend.

Pretty much sums it up yeps.

this definitely doesn't make sense. Even you're a whale just want to buy from Steam and play with existing BDO account still an issue so their target audience is actually NON-BDO player.

So you can't just buy another account on steam, then unlock it in steam library and use main account?

Of course they don't want the current player base moving over and let us buy pearls through steam. That's literally a 30% loss for no gain for Kakao. Also, we'd be spamming the review section before it even launched.

If it comes to Steam, it's only about starting and downloading the game, there will be of course no other difference.

You can also create shortcuts in your Steam library to non-Steam games if you want to start it from there.

And of course, Steam won't provide "other servers", it's just a platform that sells games, and does not provide server infrastructure for the games.

:P I thought it would actually be a win-win for Kakao coz existing already bought the game and buying them on steam would earn them extra $$$ coz its double paying all people ask is let existing player can play on steam (even though it requires paying for separatetly)
