    So this is annoying yes.... but I mean all this “I’ll quit if it doesn’t go away” talk is over dramatic.

    don’t know about you guys but I log in on average once per week lol. Is it Wednesday? -> yes -> Login -> if not Wednesday -> open from tray to begin management of afk activities before playing actively.

    Yes this is stupid, but let’s not over estimate it’s impact.

    I logged in once to see the interesting new guild interface, then logged back out to see if it was gonna make me captcha again. It did. I didn't log back in. Shrugs.

    I log in several times a day, and if you are quite ok with a playerbase decline then all is good for you. But I will say it again, I will 100% quit the game for good after 4 years if this stays in. End of story.

    It doesn`t even load for me. Captcha.PNG

    Edit: Uncheck compatibility mode for your launcher if you had same issue.

    Here is an Idea..If everyone doesent like it, and we want to get rid of it.
    Everyone simultaneously fail it and lock your selves out and swamp PA with tickets.

    That should do the trick.

    The big deal is: The system is wasting our time. It doesn't stop people from botting. Bot's can even bypass this system faster than people can enter their password. All it does is: Waste time, money, and piss off all legit players.

    Yeah, clearly you don't know about us.
    Having to log in only once per week is actually quite abnormal. The vast majority of players don't see that kind of stability from their connections or the game client.

    Captchas are bad enough, but the picture one is the worst.

    I never really cared before if PA renews their contract with Kakao or not, but since the PA launcher doesn't have a captcha, now I'm really hoping they self-publish in NA ASAP.

    First the new, not great menu design.
    Now the captcha at login.
    What's next? Do you need 10 pearls to log in and if you don't have one you can't play?

    Everytime I see a captcha I get annoyed. Just remove it, please.

    That implementation of it is horrible as well. Like changing boxes and multiple pictures is just irritating and frustrating. Extra clicks is just extra and unwanted.

    I hate this.

    I HATE it.

    I don’t use that word lightly.

    This is the most infuriating thing I’ve ever seen implemented into a game.

    Please remove this!!!

    It’s really annoying when you have five accounts to cycle through every day.

    Infuriating.

    This really just is a start to stop the botting programs it helps vs the lazy people that let programs log into bdo for them or scripts.

    Its not the end all but i like this change....and i think they should look at all teh above accounts because i see this as only a positive. They should to more to combat the bots.

    They added this annoying feature at a time a lot of people are disconnecting frequently, totally makes sense........'

    Between the UI being smaller, hitting "i" and it being half off my screen, items not auto arranging till you re-open the window, disconnects, class imbalance, NW/siege lag and no actual fighting just pre arranged winners ontop of class imbalance.....Also it seems they are ramping up the loot box sales.....

    I'm not sure how i feel about BDO anymore honestly...I can grind on my wiz now thanks to succession but everything else is just going down hill.

    Says someone who miraculously isn’t ever getting DCed.

    Plus even if I don’t get DCed, I have five accounts.
    It’s a nightmare.

    Most people I know log out every day.

    This is nothing but a barrier to entry for players. Bots can bypass this faster than humans can.

    I actually got a captcha that told me to select all the pictures of buses, but it wouldnt let me continue till I selected the RV picture..... Since I have principles I had to wait for the captcha to reload with a different task...

    This is VERY difficult to do when at 4k resolution. If this continues I'd ask for the option to make the launcher bigger?

    Completely in support of removing the captcha. I don't know why they would do this. This is the only game I have ever played that has this annoying mechanic that doesn't even do what it's intended to do. I hope they pay attention to the players since this will annoy/frustrate a lot of people...

    You know... People who keep their PC running 24/7 are probably only a small minority of the playerbase...
