    He might be EU player... Unlike NA where you can put a bid in on a VP and likely get it within the hour... or in alot of cases 5-10 minutes.

    Cannot be for a money sink because the value pack was introduced long before pearl items could be sold on the market place.

    IDK if you guys are high on lemon juice or you born to be Plebs, but BDO its the most expensive RPGMMO out there, i bought the deluxe pack when the game was on Beta more than 3 years ago, i think was 140 Euros, ofc nowdays its around 20 on Steam, but 20 only give you the chance of look the game, to have 1 single functional character you need pets, maids, inventory slots, weight limit, and a long etc, that making numbers its around 250/300 euros, now think you have 14 characters like i do, thats 300 x 14 = 4200 euros just to play all my chars, but there is even ppl that spent 10.000 or more in PEN attempts, this bring me to the casino mechanics, and like every casino this mean you can literally through all your irl money on it, and the game will eat it all in "convenience items" and "enchanting fails".

    Everything its not accesible, the looting of your pets and your gear its what open certain spots, not to mention this spots that need a boat or a shark outfit like the new cave, and while you can get gear ingame(slowly if you dont pay constantly), you cant get pets and other stuff without pass through the cash shop, because we all know guild T1 pets will never allow you acces to do Hysteria, so the map has money walls and you are just avoiding say the true, basing yourself in the fact you can take a donkey and ride around this spots at the high risk of die to the mobs and dowgrade your gear and exp lvl.

    There is not such a thing like free copys of BDO, only during the launch of Shadow Arena they offered some accounts and you had to work for it on SA. The game its a Buy To Play wich mean you have to buy it to play it, plus have monthly subscription + p2w cash shop.

    The only fact here its to think BDO its a F2P you are else a total delusional white knight of kakao/PA, or a hopless pleb that will remain lvl 50 for the rest of his life, riding a donkey while we pass around you in flying unicorns with flames.

    Game is totally enjoyable without spending anything after you buy it.
    Sadly there are people like you, who forget this is a GAME and devs take advantage of your kind to empty your pocket (and i'm glad they do it).
    I play since release, with months of quit in-between, and i spent 300 euros in total.
    2 pets (3 actually, but i got an offer 2 for one), 3/4 skins and and some artisan memory now and then. I still enjoy the game in nearly every aspect, except the nolifer one.
    If you play more casual, you can spend 0 and still enjoy the game

    Cheers!

    well if you get happy that ppl get scammed and addicted to gambling and lose all their money robbed by Devs as you said yourself, this say a lot about you, and we dont really need talk anything more. Anyways i think you are wrong, i dont feel scammed, i spent around the same you did but every month, because i can do it and i could invest a lot more, just i dont think its worth do it. The fail its most ppl think if i have money, i dont have rights to complain or use my brain and make numbers, but same now i have tons of money i used to dont have money in other times, and maybe i dont have in the future, so i m not going to ignore all the cash grabbing, p2w, casino mechanics, etc.

    You cant spent 0, thats just a plain lie, since the game its a BUY TO PLAY as i said in my post, plz stop repeating the same lies, you only lie to yourself, everyone who play BDO payed for it included yourself, except few lucky ones during Shadow Arena, as AGAIN i said on my post. What you said its like "Yeah you can go to Las Vegas without spent money", yes you can like all the homless ppl of Las Vegas do it lol.

    I didnt say in any moment you cant enjoy the game, you can enjoy it looking the things you will never buy and walking around watching other ppl enjoy the things you will never have, i enjoy it a lot no problem here, what i say you are delusional or a pleb if you say you can invest 0, in your case i think in my opinion you are both, delusional for keep saying BDO its a F2P and Pleb because you just told me your Pleb pets and investment.
    Edit
    No ofense mate, as i said you can pass the rest of your life riding your donkey around and dressed with a potato sack if you enjoy it lol, but thats very far of have the whole game open to you, keep working hard 3 years more and buy some more pets and maybe we meet on Hyteria. Cheers !!

    Also the game is what 5$ now at this point with how much is already in the cash shop it should just go free to play and try and bring in more people because the amount of new players coming in nowadays is very low.

    I'm sure many guilds are noticing the lack of people to recruit nowadays.

    For someone that claims so much, your numbers are off. Highest pack was 100 euro’s.
    Now its 10 with a deal of 5 sometimes.
    Thats ALL you need go access THE FULL GAME. Every purchase after that is OPTIONAL. Hell even my alt account had FOUR PETS for free till now, with one being a T4 Pinguïn.

    Ive been here ingame since the 4day headstart too. Ive been here through both pre launch tests. Ive been in bdo since openbeta in KR since december 2014 and ever since playing bdo.

    But none of that matters if what im saying is wrong. Get your **** right bruv.
    Again, all other purchases are optional after getting your game. Convenience/luxury purchases. NOT mandatory to get access to the FULL GAME

    log in Two weeks.....to get 24 hours of a value pack.
    Loyalty shop been trash.
    And whales aren't buying VP's anymore, since Costumes are much more profitable for their cash that put in game.

    Why pay 15 dollars in the game and get 88m when you can spend an extra 10 dollars, cop a fit and sell for 220m.
    Its not like the Kakao Cash coin has an option for 15 dollars. But they sure as hell have one for 20, 30$. Right at the sweet Range for buying a costume, GO FIGURE, lol Its ALLLLLL Strategy.

    People needs crons to safely enhance, so "why not implement the crons within the costumes of the game so the free to play players can in turn get gains, and the whales could keep on buying to help their own gainz as well!"

    The crons could've been implemented for potential Mob drops, Gathering, Fishing. But no, that doesn't make profit for the company. Costumes does.

    As stupid as the people make the devs seem...They are Clever and Crafty. And I acknowledge that. But I dont respect it.

    First, i said clearly “after you buy the game”
    Second, i’m at softcap and play nearly every aspect of the game.
    Third, the game as so much to offer other then fight in NW, if you can’t enjoy it, that’s your problem.
    Fourth, everyone can spend money as he wish but this is thowing it in the bin in my opinion, i wouldn’t be so proud about it

    Peace!

    Currently more than 3000 preorders for vp on the na market place. My order has been waiting to be filled for near one month so how is that going to happen?

    one more of the several way to push players to spend in this "nOT pAy2WIn GaME", and brace yourselfs because A:IR has adopted the exact same bussines model BDO has, actually they already have a 30% MP tax that gets reduced with their own version of a value pack

    you didnt have to wait long ROFL

    wich is called missleading advertising since the objective is to make potential customers install the game and invest time in it under false premises before realising the truth.

    dont surrender to their schemes, i suggest you to rely on activities that avoid market interactions like trading, sea monster hunting, imperial crafting, imperial delivery, the only thing we can do is to show them our resolve is stronger than their cheap tricks

    A good reason to not bother buying it in my opinion. Once bitten twice shy.

    To be fair its the one thing I find acceptable and wish it did a bit more. The Value Pack should be the sub fee for the game & we get rid of loot boxes. I'm old school MMO. I'll pay to play, not pay to gamble.
