    Figured you would like a nice giggle...
    Although I can't say I haven't seen plenty of new players emerging, I do worry how they will fare in our vast world that is ever growing......

    I'm sure the community can ....provide...some views on these views.....giggles

    Where are they getting those numbers from?

    *Time for some tinfoil*

    If PA is willing to send teams to travel overseas and spend big $ on hiring orchestras, I'm sure they wouldn't consider it too much to pay for such articles to get published. It's cost effective marketing and people probably give game review sites some credibility.

    103.6% increase in returning players

    24.2% increase in new players

    1000% decrease in existing players - they forgot to mention that one.

    I don't know about you but i still see a ton of people in all major cities and on popular grind spots. I guess the few saltlikers that left the game are not worth to be mentioned.

    So yeah

    It seems like some campaign to attract new players considering the existing ones leaving, but it's not a lie that people are returning or joining in. My WoW friends started playing again and calling me to play with them... -_- Are you kidding me? They have no 'content' to enjoy at end game, qq a lot about pvp, hate p2w, and hate life skill, but this update lured them back here like mindless sheep.

    Honestly, I really think it's time for PA to crank up the p2w model...like go BIG! Sell more 'convenience' items like 100% PEN enchant stones, 20% pvp damage scrolls, etc...) The community will support them, and there isn't any better sandy MMO to migrate to. Even the upcoming 2019 MMOs look good with a lot of hype, but none of them look that impressive or innovative so far...

    Shitty how they never count the actual returning players that choose to stay.

    My life skill and growth rankings dropped quite a bit, despite the absolute numbers increasing. That indicates population growth

    Probably because people who outrank you, by alot, and haven't bothered playing since the "infamous balance changes", are logging back in to blow up their gear to put the final nail in the coffin before freeing up that precious 50GB BDO takes up on their hardrive.

    Pretty much this, I had a lot of friends who reinstalled to melt all of their costumes and smash for pen, a few of them got it and are playing for now but are still botching about the changes so they’ll probably quit in like a week or so

    If I had a pen stack I’d reinstall and smash for free, why not

    The game gets worse with every patch but they keep giving us all these events to keep us logging in. Who would want to miss out on possible TET Accessories for free?

    PA/Kakao know exactly what theyre doing and it works.
