So if it won't happen..why bother with this thread?

Plus the large majority (300k+) people never come on the forums...so what purpose does the poll server?

To answer your question, no.

What do you mean by "Drop the cash shop". Do you mean we'd get all the stuff that's currently on the cash shop for free, then yes obviously.

But if you mean we'd no longer have the option to customize our appearances and all the other features of the cash shop then of course not...

I wouldn't pay $20 a month for any game no matter how awesome it was. I have never seen a game that can provide the amount of content that a subscription fee should be paying for.

This is what I do, but it's not quite $20 a month. This way I can pick and choose what I want out of the CS. And if there's nada, I can stock up my pearls then until I see something I want.

Nope.

I dont like sub based game because i feel like i waste my money if i dont play. And i dont want to have that "forced to play feeling"

 

So yeah but no. If it ever happen, as much as i truly love that game, its an instant uninstall.

( not saying they would still keep the CS for even more money milking )

It's all about saving up and waiting for those "holiday deals" and then dropping $100 like a boss

Twenty dollars?  Even the most successful and popular MMOs don't charge that much for sub fees these days.  So no, I would not.  Especially since, even cash shop aside, this game isn't even a proper MMO.

Why not spand that $20 on cash shop stuff each month? Same difference.

Honestly no. I enjoy cash shops for their exclusivity factor and being able to differentiate yourself from the crowd, and I'm often willing to spend large sums of money monthly on a game cash shop if I feel the price is right.

 

Thus far with BDO I've not felt a desire to heavily invest beyond £50 for initial start up things beyond my conqueror pack contents. I'm sure when Blader and Ninja release I'll spend more, though

if I buy something out of the cash shop for $20 I can keep playing this game for as long as I want without paying anything else and always have access to my item

a subscription fee would mean that I have to pay the subscription every single month to maintain access to the game

 

not trying to imply anything about which is the better option, just pointing out that they are two very different things.

I would pay monthly but not to remove the cash shop. Only to limit the cash shop from becomming pay for power

that's actualy what it was already supposed to be because we have a BUY TO PLAY version and not a F2P version.

But saddly, the B2P "advantage" over the F2P version is very very very very very very very thin

Yes. I'll always prefer paying a monthly sub. Just pay your 13€-20€ and then there is no shop to annoy you. I prefer to just play a game, without a stupid mall seeking for attention.
