I don't care about the free XP, it's just a cover-up. I'm more pissed off with the fact that I bred my 4 pets just before the patch, to find out that if they reach level 10 they'd have automatically gained a skill at tier 1.

The lack of adequate pre-warning, discussion and/or communication is despicable.. just a small mention inside the latest patch notes.. this is similar to the pre-order fiasco, except that was failure on internal communication, now it's an external communication failure.

Had I known that the system would be changed I would not have spent my money on extra pets to breed them for skills, and furthermore, I would have not bred them at all. I would not have spent that money, period.

But of course, this isn't the first time, and it won't be the last. Just carry on keeping us out of the loop, until you finish maintenance and ----- people over like myself with undocumented surprise changes.

This is how you lose customers. You gotta keep us in the loop, way more than you are currently, especially when you are dealing with our money.

Stupid complaint.

It happens every day in the real life. You buy some pants our shoes and the next day, there is price reduction.

Please don't cry over your choices. Nobody forced you.

You can buy a smartphone for 600€ today  and tomorrow it will cost 399€.  Things like this happen.

Get out and take a walk. You act like a spoiled kid.

Nice, managed to get my computer fixed just in time for this weekend's boost.

Just conflicted as to what classes I should focus on, what to focus on doing with them, and how I should divide my time during the event. Definitely need to focus on getting one of my classes up to 50+, but I'm just... Well, I neglected Skill Point grinding on my now-31 Sorceress, my Ranger has a ton of skill points at 32, and my Giant is bogged down with a metric ton of life skill quests and life skill progress. I have yet to do much with my Warrior, however, and I've been so overwhelmed with what I COULD do that I end up feeling too conflicted/burned out to do much of anything except log in for my loyalty points towards a char slot I wanna use for my Blader.

Still, I guess I'm gonna buckle down and start off trying to get more acquainted with my Sorc and Ranger and see how far I can take them without losing interest in them completely. Definitely considering deleting one or both and making a Wizard and saving a slot for Blader and buying the loyalty slot for Ninja when I can.

I'm just too scatterbrained for my own good, I guess.

Have you ever played an MMO before?

MMO's change. All the time, with every patch. It is the nature of MMO's.

Get over it.

me too, eggs are still there

but the npcs that gave the quests about eggs are no longer giving them

it looks like they still allow you to complete but only if you already picked the quests up ... so yes .. I am not seeing the 5th egg quest which I haven't completed (or started)

The whole point of my rant was to bring light to the massive communication failures that this company has had, has, and will continue to have.

Wait until it happens to you. It's happened to me three times; head-start, preorder items, and now this, it's a good job I'm a patient person. I understand that things change, however there are ways you go about this to minimize disruptions for your player base. 

It's like they take your money and don't give two shits about it, look at the ticket response times. It's disgusting. I deal with huge amounts of tickets for my own products and other's products, It doesn't take a WHOLE month to reply to a ticket, that's just sheer ignorance and there's no other way you can look at it. (Queue via created timestamp is a perfect example here of what should be done. Oldest to Newest.) If they are "overwhelmed" by tickets, then employ more staff, i'm pretty sure they can afford that.

Stupid complaint.

There's no need to act like a child because I said something that you disagree with. You should be making a relevant point or not posting at all.

If i bought something in "real life" and it was on reduction or reduced the next day, week or within 14 days, depending on the situation, I might even have up to a year and 14 days to return it. Furthermore, I don't believe your argument has any relevance, it's just another pointless post from an ignorant, blinded fool.

And i'll re-iterate, because i'm pretty sure either yourself or somebody else will pick on the buzzword "refund" here. I do not want a refund. I want Daum to actually start acting like a reputable business, because so far, I'm not the only one who's experienced this, look around. Take off your blinkers and look around you.

This patch broke the fishing exp, currently 300%+ extra on many servers, please fix it asap as it gets worse by the hour, masters popping up all over the place with no efforts.

maybe, but then... why should they make quests unavailable 5 days before the end of the event? O.o

Yeah this pissed me off too. I left game. 1.5 months till overwatch.

 

I learned my lesson to not trust these small shitty greedy companies. With blizzard I never had to deal with these type of issues. Not to mention everything in this game is -----ing broken.

Apologies for the inconvenience, but we hope you enjoy the boost over the weekend!

As an apology, it's always nice when we are given something for FREE and I appreciate the gesture, I really do, but how about next weekend you apologise to the non-combat orientated players as well? They make up a fair proportion of the players in BDO and from the posts on this forums its obvious that quite a few of them feel like a 10% Combat EXP boost is more a slap in the face than an apology.  (... and what gives taking away the one thing that took some of the sting out of it?)

A weekend Life Skills EXP boost maybe?

@CM_Jouska I noticed that the fishing experience on the EU server is out of control. I witnessed a streamer go from Artisan 9 fisher to Master 2 within just a couple of hours. I know about hotspots and I fish the same ones that the streamer does and I average about 14% experience per hour at Artisan 5. Is this a bug or was it intentional for EU only?

Daum has to do something for this bug. Like removing all the supplementary exp points received during this week-end due to the bug.

Didn't really played this week-end, and everybody did get so much life exp.....

 

Why didnt you just sent exp scroll ?

This is my opinion of the compensation event:

Some people are not able to play during this weekend and there is already a gap between players. If you guys continue putting in this events there will be even bigger gaps between the players that can play 24/7 and the once that cannot do that in the further. Why would I think that the events will continue to appear in the game? It's pretty easy to guess as BDO i Korea have them alot of times every year. So please give us exp scrolls in the further so we can use them whenever we want.

With this solution everyone should be pleased.
