    Wrong, its mainly the Oasis event that flooded the market with black gems. 12 boxes per day to each player literally for months does that. The calendar and seasonal server just help the whole situation escalate. But yeah I'm trying to keep this post focused on the calendar rewards, the month long oasis event is a whole another story.

    Again to my point, if Oasis and seasonal servers are already crashing black gems / concentrated gems, don't put them additionally in the calendar to crash them even more!!?

    If its still not clear, all I'm asking is for someone to look at each of the items in the calendar before releasing it and check its market price. If its already bottoming out, don't kill it additionally by putting those in the daily rewards. And vise versa, if something is unobtainable in the short term, maybe add it to the daily rewards to temporarily ease the players trying to get those items (e.g. Armor black stones).

    hahaha, whether it is good or bad is up to the individual playing the game. If it was a bad thing to them, why do they still play? Once again all about choices.

    BDO has always had events, and I am sure always will. Events also help out with some of the points the OP is posting about, when there is a shortage, an event is thrown in. eg Tapu's golden challenge event this week is a recycled event to remove some items from the game (stone, weeds, logs) and replace with some other needed items (cron, caphras. accessories)

    In general yes, but again there is no excess of "stone, weeds, logs" as those 3 are some of the highest valued mats in the game and there is no excess of those.

    If they wanted to recycle excess materials, they should've looked at stuff like silver azalea, wild grass, certain bloods etc. But they literally picked the 2 most valuable (logs and stone) + weeds which is also very important for alchemists.

    I want a Kuku. You know how hard it is for a solo player who plays every day to get a Kuku?

    I missed the ONE time it was offered to the general public because it was announced on the 3rd anniversary web site weeks after the anniversary event started.

    It would be nice to see it redesigned to include a once monthly (Day 31) small cosmetic item or furniture piece. It could be set up that over a 12 month period, you could potentially obtain the pieces of a family bound full outfit. It could be made to not have any buff bonuses if they're concerned about impacting Pearl Outfit sales. There is a lot more to BDO than just enhancement.

    I would love this. But... enhancement is the goose that laid golden eggs in this casino. So probably they will not change this.

    That would actually require them to play their own game... or at least log into it.
    That's too much, ask something easier.

    I don't know why people keep saying this. Kuku has never, not once, been offered as a Loyal Attendence reward. It may be spammed as a returning reward. It may be spammed as a medium/large guild reward. It has never been a Loyal Attendence reward. If you play every day and aren't in a guild, it's not offered as a reward.

    tldr; I've hit 30-35 on every single loyal attendance reward since they started and I don't have a kuku.

    That's been part of the deterioration of the game for years as it heads towards auto play/mobile gaming. The drop rates where never adequate for spending the time grinding and they where obtained in mass via events that handed out 10,000's of rares at a time.

    It would be nice to see the origin of items and find out how shameful some of them really are lol.

    I have a T3 Kuku pet. I have never purchased a Kuku pet. Therefore it has most definitely been a freebie reward at least twice. It wasn't a quest reward either. You are mistaken.

    BDO has many flows, but one of the best things this game offers is the free stuff.

    I made full TET armors / weapons and TRI accessories, just by getting free stuff from attendances / special attendances / events / celebrations / anniversaries and Dark Rift bosses.

    You get free silver by just logging in for one second and if you leave your PC open for a few hours everyday, you get free boxes that can give you cool rewards like Memory Fragments / Health - Weight - Stamina boostings / Cron Stones and you might even win Gold Bar box that can give you 100+ million silver (i won it once).

    They give you free stuff and you don't like it. . .

    I have a tier 3 and tier 1 Kuku, and have never stopped playing the game.

    If you are not in a guild every day of BDO, you miss out on so much stuff. There are plenty of good social guilds out there.

    Sounds like people don't need to actually bother playing the game, doesn't it? You could instead just AFK your way through the game like a Mobile with auto play.

    Quite a shame for a PC MMORPG NOW ISN'T IT.

    I was going for the b2b2b2 1 valks cry. They just need to be more inventive and spread things out. Log in rewards don't have to be valuable they have to be interesting. Best would be stuff that inspired you to do something in game. Like a scroll that raises your fishing by +100 for 12 hours, yknow? A boss scroll... something to get people interested in playing parts of the game. WOW A CONCENTRATED BLACK GEM wew lads. But boring.

    Mount name/appearance change coupons, pet reskins... all sorts of things they can give out every few days that don't really affect the game world and will be cool to have. 1 valks cry ain't doing much for me.

    I rather have a black gem, that I can convert into money, than have a boss scroll that I not going to do anyway, or a another scroll just to clutter in my inventory...

    Fair enough. Money is ez tho. Content, for me, is better than raw money. But I'm 'a different player.' Why don't they give out a freaking black spirit claw.
