Game Frustrations - Why I didn't spend another $60 on the game.


12 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

If I didn't get +57 Fail Stacks before I went from +13 to +14, if I wasn't completely frustrated at the Achievement Combat Skill Points, and if I wasn't having FPS issues for no apparent reason... I would have already spent another $60 on BDO...

I wanted to buy 3 pets (One of each type), Glasses (Faster Knowledge), Headpiece (Higher Quality Knowledge), Full Skill Reset, and Weight Limit Increase (+150wt). Comes out to $60 USD, but I couldn't convince myself to spend that money on a game that frustrates me more than I find enjoyment out of it.

It's just the way it is... RNGesus didn't smile upon you.

I'm on 3 characters already with failstacks at 20 each trying to go +12->+13 Liverto.  I feel your pain, OP.  Save those stacks for something big like Ogre Rings or going +2 Witch Ear/Mark of Shadows.  Start fresh on an alt as your failstacks don't increase chances past 20 failstacks.  However, brace yourselves down the road where you can go from a +19 to +18 with a fail stack in the 50s.

After the failure: "Later, friends"

Vsynd, save those stacks and DO NOT use them. I swear, having the luck to build 50 failstacks is a literal blessing.

Your failstacks stopped working at +20. What you need to do is make another character to level 10 and finish the black spirit quests until you can enchant.

Enchant that weapon on your new character. Those 50 failstacks is completely worth it if you can use it to make a DUO Ogre ring or something.

In the future after expansions, it will take you MUCH more than 50 failstacks to get high enchantments. You will literally enchant white gear over and over again to build failstacks, but curse because you'll never build a failstack high enough and keep wasting stones trying for the failstack.

Save them bro, you might not realize it but failstack managing is the most important aspect of upgrading gear.

People get to +15 with as little as 3-4 stones per enchantment level without bothering with failstacks.

 

I am pretty much on the same boat as you building massive failstacks and getting nothing; better just go put my money on eurojackpot tickets if I want to gamble

Yea, the Fail Stacks thing is annoying, and I could look past it if other things weren't also getting on my nerves. But today those +57 sent me over the edge with issues I was already having with the game.

Based on other Charts I was suppose to have a %20 chance to succeed 37 different times. So RNG just back handed me. :)

seems like RNGsus hates you. I managed to +8 to +14 with a max fail stack of 5 for each enchantment. I use my armor to build the fail stack. +15 took me a max fail stack of +30. but finally got it.

it all depends on the RNGsus love.

No worries.  Just go ahead and start building stacks on an alt.  Get it to about 18-20 fail stacks then go to town with weapon stones up to about 25.  If you fail, then go start failstacks on a different character...

Yea, I know. I tried to use my +49 Fail Stacks on taking a +1 Ring of Good Deeds to +2, but failed, that got me to +50 Fail Stacks.

I 100% understand the logic behind that, but I wanted a +15 weapon more than I was worried about Accessories at the time.

Yea, and the Fail Stacks aren't the only reason I'm not spending money on the game, it's more of the other things than it is the Fail Stacks. I know the Failing is a MAJOR part of the game, but it did send me over the edge to not spend another $60 on the game.

Nice. yea I should have forced it twiced. would have been cheaper....

Sad thing is, I spent over 35Million on the weapon and on the Market Place there are Blue +15 Yurias I could have bought for 32Million.... So yea.

In the end I decided to spend that $60 on a new video game. So I'll be playing that for a while, instead of BDO. That's just money lost from me, probably many others having the same thoughts.

 

I'll be waiting for FPS Optimization and for Achievement Combat Skill Points to be addressed before I come back to the game. GL HF everyone.

awww. come on, be nice.

Everyone else was nice. :(

I was at +13 trying to get to +14. Failed 57 different times before I got it.

I don't know what you're saying about math. but it's all good. I'll come back to BDO at a later time. Needs more updates first.

when you are so lucky to get such a high fail stack count, you should always keep it and force the current level instead.
