    Im feeling a bit sorry for those new players. They will quickly realize that there is no such thing as a catch up. The game is largely deserted and PA needed to get some people out on the maps to provide fodder for the p2wers. Got to present the whales with some easy targets to validate the spending.

    That's basically what BDO boils down to. Either you are A.) Fodder, B.) Whale or C.) RNG carried "destined to succeed". And yes getting a item at a 10% or less chance is very much considered lucky or (RNG carried).

    BDO died in 2018 when Seamonster Hunting Guilds were getting 5-10 billion silver a week in guild payouts just outright buying PEN Gear.

    You know what's worst. Is that some of these whales literally teach these kids how to play the game. Then they tell them about the fantasies that they only bought convenience items. "It's not p2w". But when you ask them to post their expenditures they quiet down, totally ignore you. I think we all know why.

    These guys are the worst. But when it comes to gaming especially MMOs these days whaling looks and feels like a norm now. Even WOW is setting up microtransactions. At least some folks are honest with it. It is what it is.

    I think it is an inevitable outcome when there are too many new games that can deliver a fast pace "reward" and not needing the amount of time to be successful in an MMO.

    In a marathon contenders start at the same time. You don't start the marathon 1 hour later and then then find out there is a different road that takes you nowhere and then you have to go back and be behind 2 hours of everyone else.

    Hmm, thats actually how I read his post to be honest. That the marathon thing is all BS. Which it is.
    Hence him warning his friends, and them saying to heck with it. Which is what any true friend should do.
