Horse Skill Change Coupons... What the hell Daum.


102 posts in this topic

So I leveled up a tier 6 horse to level 30 hoping I'd get the two seater skill, but I didn't, so I used a horse skill change coupon and it didn't go through.

Then I decided to buy more to see if I'll get it, still nothing.

I spent $40 worth of skill change coupons... still didn't get the skill.

Daum, please remove the RNG from this aspect of the game, it has no place to be there.

Why doesn't it belong there? Level up a new horse if you don't want to spend more money for it. You're not entitled to the skill.

Paying more than the game itself for a mere skill change?

Come on, let's be real, this sort of gambling does not belong in the game, no other item has that kind of RNG in the game other than dyes which you keep the results for the RNG box and is not just a mere switch.

I wouldn't have bought all of those skill change coupons if I had known I had quite literally no chance of getting the skill.

I just wanted the two seater skill and be happy with it until T8 comes out and ended up spending $40 for no reward.

Quit shilling to Daum, this is a real issue.

no ones fault besides yours that you chose to spend that much for the resets. Also do as said above and just try with another horse.

I hate to be the person who says this, but welcome to modern MMO RNG driven Cash Shops. I'm sorry your first experience with one had to be in this game, but really, many games have it way worse. I'm not saying that that makes it right, but it's not something that's new or exclusive to Daum.

Those failed skill changes are building fail stacks for you at least (Number to the right of the skill). It's a high value skill, of course it'll be tough to get.

Well, why then they offer a skill change scroll? In my opinion, these type of cash shop items which only gives you a chance (where you don't even know the odds) to get what you want are a blatant rip-off.

Easy to say now to get another horse - he already wasted 40 bucks ... that's an expensive lesson.

Take BDO under your scrutiny, and you'll find that it is created in such a way that it always will tease you to spend money at the cash shop. Daum is not a buddy of yours, never forget that.

That's way worse than what I experienced...

I don't know if hope does really increase your chances of getting your desired skill...

Daum really needs to clear up what are the odds of getting your desired skill, because right now this is blind gamble.

Did you submit a support ticket?

This sort of thing really shouldn't happen, it's a huge scam.

The odds of getting one of the more desirable skills with a reset coupon are pretty low.   It took me a little over 30 coupons to get sprint and I'm sitting at 33 for sideways move.

I feel people really need to be aware of those odds.

Daum really needs to change this.

I was aware of the terrible odds before I rolled my skills.  There was information posted about this a few weeks ago.  I rolled mine regardless.  Nobody to blame but myself on my rolls.  I do think they should be way more transparent concerning the odds especially when you are essentially gambling with real money for in game content.  As this becomes more prevalent in games I suspect law makers will one day recognize it as gambling and will regulate it.  For now though, gaming companies are in a good position to make a lot of money for nothing.

Yea it's honestly a gamble, but I understood that.  It's not guaranteed, but at a 41 fail stack it's a little ridiculous. RNG is RNG and sadly I do not have any luck.

I have 20 fail stacks on my conquered horse. It never learned sprint in the end.

I figured the hope stacks on horses gave you a slightly better chance. NOPE

Than i find out they are PER horse not PER account. So that just rubbed salt in the wounds.

 

I put in a ticket and the gm said this.

 

The outcome of horse skill resets is completely random and isn't influenced by hope which only influences skills learned on leveling up the horse

 

I'm beyond pissed.

After my horse learned drift and sprint, I decided to buy 5 tickets for instant accel gambling. All I ended up with were 5 hope stacks ha!

Wait why would there be a Hope button then? I'm so confused.

That reads as though the "fail stacks" have absolutely no effect if a horse is level 30.  If that's true, there's no indication to a player that that's the case. That's a shitty design with a sprinkling of shady and misleading business practices thrown on top.
