this literally has nothing to do with P2W

 

guess who owned daum before this? Kakao. It's just a merger in name, nothing else.

"Daum Games’ name change serves to unify its presence within Kakao Corporation, its parent company".

And decrease the playerbase by 1000% xD

 

But i dont get it, isnt daum the parent company of daum west ? :o Kakao have something to do with daum kr ?

Or if daum west turn out to be more "independant" compare to now, maybe we have a change to see more "improvment" instead of turning that game into a Arche Age 2.0 and make everyone run away.

I don't understand what you're getting at.

P2W elements exist in BDO in other regions, including in KR where Daum has been publisher all along.

What does changing their name to reflect the parent company merger have to do with bringing other region elements to the NA/EU version?

it's already pay to win

cash shop outfit benefits like +10% exp, +20% horse training, etc

Pets that give combat exp boosts and life skill boosts.

additional weight so you can grind longer than a free player

additional inventory slots so you can fish longer than a free player

Worker housing that doesn't cost contribution, as well as storage that doesn't cost contribution so paying players can essentially get more free silver than free players

 

people who deny this are just drinking some Daum brand kool-aid

I suppose that's a cheap link with "mobile company" -> P2W

It's already here.

Except they claim it's "convenience".

The game would empty more than it ever has if that were to happen.

A better move would be to remove the goofy design decisions that are obstacles to fun.

If they go P2W they decimate their player base. But they also cash out.

I got a job that enables me to play as much as i want. Not everyone who works wants to pay for catch up "mechanics".

 To me you just sound jealous someone gets to play more than you.

Also since you got a job, it should also mean you are somewhat mature but your post really makes me doubt it.

I would start not only banning people that post these kinds of things from the forums, but also the game. And then also ban their guild from the game.

We'd see the shit / low effort posts go away instantly.
