    So BDO is copying Overwatch as well? Very soon they'll start banning ppl left and right for dumb reasons expecting those ppl to come back and spend another thousand dollars on the game lol.

    If they are really serious about this, they should permanently ban the account holder. This is what Overwatch does. Ban ppl left and right for dumb reasons but allow them to have 10 different alt accounts, all using the same paypal account...

    Thanks for this nugget of wisdom. People act like RMT is the biggest threat when the biggest *** threat is actually PA with their incessant pay to win *** show.

    I really love the Fish Bot example. People see very clearly that someone using a macro/script/bot to auto fish is clearly gaining an unfair advantage. They fully recognize this behavior is cheating and wrong. However, they do have a hard time of understanding the deeper reasons as to why it's wrong and what impacts it has.

    If it's wrong because that person is gaining an advantage over them, they should be able to relate an advantage gained from the cash shop is equally as wrong. Yet this doesn't always convey well to people.

    No, the problem is you in this case. I pointed out the similarities of both actions as being wrong. You just misinterpreted it into defending RMT.

    No, non whales get faced with even worse "inconveniences" the more whales are ready to spend. So the more whales pump into p2w features of games, the worse games will become for everyone.

    So the hobby of p2w whales gets more expensiv and non whales get more and more inconveniences, everybody loses.

    He is not defending rmt. He is simply stating that pearl abyss themselves are allowing rmt with being able to convert real money into game money. He is saying BOTH are disgusting.

    That is correct, developers will intentionally look for ways to hinder their customer base instead of looking for an optimal game experience. With so many UI changes, Pearl Abyss should have given the worst UI interface to customers by default, and then made paid upgrades for a proper UI.

    The only problem with this is Pearl Abyss can't distinguish between what a good and bad user interface is :D

    "no one benefit from the p2w" *EU players still crying at the lack of outfits to melt for crons on the market*

    OK.
    Please tell me:
    Is using macro/script/bot against the TOS = YES/NO?
    Is using cash shop against the TOS = YES/NO?

    You must accept TOS to use this games/casino. So don't be "relative".

    The TOS is about what the publisher think is right of wrong, not the player.

    It is irrelevant. You are going out of topic. This was about the player perspective on the impact of either practice on their experience.

    There is no state/country law that decides for the publisher if RMT is allowed in their game. And for what's allowed in the cash shop, there is no law for now about P2W, just about gambling in some countries. The publisher has full choice on whether any of them is allowed in their game.

    From that the player can have a reflection on whether their vision of what's acceptable matches the decision of the publisher. The player is able to agree or disagree with the choices of the publisher and to criticize them.
