    A GM lucky box, 3x GM blessing 2 (1hour) and the item collection scrolls? pretty nice. The training ones are insulting, they just need to make those player based so you can DC and not waste the training or give hours equal to the whole thing.

    Nope the compensation is a joke that may be fine if the ddos attacks were just 1 day but they lasted what a week or so....

    Check your mail guys.

    Not to look a gifthorse in the mouth or anything but we lost tons of Ellions Tears and crystals during that attack. I don't expect you guys to give 30 mil crystals back ofcoarse, but a dozen Ellions Tears would have been appropriate. Just sayin. And for the record, I realize DDoS attacks are beyond your control. Something is better than nothing. Thanks.

    If you lost crystals and Elion's tears you can contact Support. I got my 2x Jins the next day and the Elion's Tears.

    Ah so you rolled good RNG when contacting support.

    I lost x2 HAN Hooms and couldn't complete 3 item scrolls due to all the server issues the past two weeks, submitted two politely written tickets, they were instantly solved and I was never contacted or given anything aftewards.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    So the DDoS compensation came in. Though I wasn't affected, the GM's Lucky box really bugs me as a form of compensation. So one person could end up with say an Ogre Ring. Another person ends up with a Whale Tendon Potion. Does PA/Kakao think both those people feel equally compensated?

    So essentially the PA/Kakao feels Whale Tendon potions with the XP/SK and 3 buffs are all that the inconvenience for those affected is worth? Oh right even less as you could have ended up with just a Cron Stone.

    Random item boxes for compensation isn't a good system.

    It is actually an insult. This forcing of gambling at every turn is starting to get annoying. I know I do not need to use the lucky box but I still think it is bad.

    Do you also feel insulted when you get a meal at McDonalds as a compensation for your loss at McDonalds ?

    It depends: When I order the whole menu at McDonalds, pay for it, the employee drops it on the ground and I get a happy meal as a compensation, then yes.

    I never eat at McDonalds and it is the nature of the push of gambling that I do not like. You can ignore that if you like but I will not

    If I ever went to a casino I wouldn't certainly cry about the gambling or the fact the the casinos uses techniques to make me gamble more.

    It's been 6 months you've been playing BDO, you should be by now aware of its nature and act as an adult.

    You're playing a gambling game called BDO. You can now read again the post you quoted and act accordingly.

    I did not know there was gambling in this game when I bought it. I do though minimise the amount that I am exposed to it by not enhancing. All the other rng gets a bit much at times but I then just go and play other games for a while.
    Edit funnily I thought I was playing an mmorpg and did not expect this level of gambling at all. All that aside there is a lot about the game I do enjoy so I will not be stopping just because you seem to be implying that I should. I am old enough and smart enough to be able to still enjoy myself in the game. It is the ability to adapt and make the game work for me, not me work for the game.

    What I implied, isn't that you should stop playing. What any reasonable adult would either do is stop playing or stop complaining about RNG in a game they voluntary play and whose nature they're aware about.
