    the entire concept was a disgusting p2w cashgrab to begin with and it made p2w design of characters super lucrative and destroyed balance because of it creating immortal characters such as shai and guardians, with guardians being oneshot through building walls as well to boost their p2w on high gear.

    it was pathetic stupid from the beginning and f you all for introducing it to begin with, breaking all your promises yet again....
    ****ing laws are needed to keep these scam artist in check.... ffs you ****ed over the game since awakening p2w design was introduced and now pvp is just 1cc=win boredom with nothing but circling each other in way too fast for the engine to handle movement skills making latency the biggest enemy and Allie of pvp -.-

    You will just waste your money unless the new class is going to be released within seven days of you buying the coupons.

    What about you add this to some npc with 1 silver price? Seems legit if real reason for removing these is to lower pressure on players that need to pay for switching class.

    uhm.. no?
    It wasnt? PA being **** at balancing surprisingly doesnt have anything to do with this.
    PA decided to discontinue selling those because people thought its just business. But the truth of the matter is that PA is just bad at balancing. Like... really bad. Its not even funny how bad they are.
    But again Coupons arent as p2w relatively speaking.
    Reason is simple: Costume melting. As long as costume melting exists NOTHING in game is even remotely p2w.

    Sometime I think BDO is one big beta test with a cash shop for the devs to make numerous mistakes and fixes to in order to prep for Crimson Desert.

    No they never used to expire. What you mean are the coupons from Shakatu Seals.

    I don't think you can get the coupon with the new seals and with the old ones you can get just a few things, but not the coupon anyway if I remember correctly.

    It specifically says that only the Pearl Shop coupons will be unavailable for purchase.

    New Seals offer the coupons for 120 ea and for the old ones for 150 ea.

    This is hypocrisy.

    You are still allowing costume melting. The only reason you are removing weapon exchange is because weapon exchange guarantees something without RNG being involved. At the same time, you keep the RNG based option to encourage gambling.
