Preorder? Never again. Cash shop? Not a dime.

Not when I as a player:

  1. Have to practically beg the publisher to update me on fundamental information regarding a core aspect of the game, being the cash shop pricing. 
  2. Have to sign a non-refund agreement before accessing a beta, only to find out that the promised cash model could not be farther from the truth. 
  3. Have to pay an entry fee for a game which is F2P in other regions.

I was naive because what i saw on the KR server gave me the confidence to open my wallet. What a great game, the graphical fidelity, the sandbox experience, immersion and so much more.

You got my 50 bucks. You better not spend it all at once because there aint any more where that came from. 

Sincerely, 

A gamer who considers the value of investing in a game in the long term.

EDIT: I don't know why people are saying goodbye? I'm not going anywhere.

This is the game that is making you give up pre-ordering?

You're not much of a gamer if this kind of pre-ordering pushes you off the edge. There is FAR worse out there...

I ordered the game after CBT2 before knowing more about this whole mess, I got into CBT2 from free key. Wonder if I still get a refund with this?

Because the more I learn about the game, I more I think I would have a better deal playing RU version with 6 dollars sub. I seriously would have much more bang for the buck that way.

Seriously, read about RU P2P server, their benefits alone would make Conqueror package look like a rip off...

Nope, not half, you are talking about KR version, RU version is much cheaper and their P2P server gives so much benefits, more than 100 dollars pre-order.

Not to mention their CS items are cheaper as well.

Lol if you think Russia will be any better than NA/EU you're blind to how good our version is.

They gave away many CBT1 and CBT  keys for FREE. You could have tried it before buying that way. This game is very good and where it is F2P they have other features that are really bad compared to our revamped version of the game here in NA/EU.

I don't own the game yet, but I think its a great game from my CBT2 play and I think you are upset over nothing. The cash shop has nothing in it that should upset people so much, don't buy into the people making it seem there is a huge problem there.

Doesn't mean they're completely off the hook. It serves as an example of what NOT to do for pre-orders.

Then at least play the first few days of headstart and then come to a conclusion.

You've already made the investment. :)

 

As for poor communication, it's prevalent all through our current society.

Just look at the quality of some of the posts on this forum. :P

The argument "Its more expensive elsewhere" really doesn't work. Korea and Japan have more expensive stuff because they gave generally good economy and people can afford it. Idk how about America,  EU has a lot of countries with bad economy and low incomes. Not only that, but RU has way cheaper Cash Shop than we do. Also, both RU and KOR have F2P BDO, we're the only version of BDO who had to pay to play the game.

Because of the backlash. Everyone saw through that 'Litmus test'.

If that model had worked, every company would have jumped on it. For sure.

Sorry, but this is bs.
RU version is being completely obliterated by GameNet at this point, in lots of different aspects.

And as it was mentioned 100000x times now, RU version is cheaper because Russian economy is going through some rough times. For russian players, those prices are not actually that cheap.

I will most definitely be playing the game, at least for as long as it doesn't turn into P2W.  I made no mention that I'm leaving but I will simply not drop a single penny in the store, as much as I may want to.

Really? You should check the P2P server then, 6 dollars per months with much cheaper price in CS and more benefits than I would have paid this game with value of over 200 dollars.
