    SO yeah, as the topic says
    Some guilds are now getting much richer than during the Trina Musket bug.

    Bug or not, but this needs to be fixed... game economy is going crazy

    There are guild which are having +100 billion silver and able to give out +3 Billion silver bonuses, making members insanely rich. Just by hunting sea monsters.

    Here is a clip of such a big guild bonus
    https://clips.twitch.tv/DeafHealthyAsparagusSMOrc

    And the same player's biggest bank: (12/8/2018)
    [​IMG]
    And the guilds Vault 12/8/2018
    [​IMG]
    This player's guild (UPS) is owning only ONE NORMAL node, which gives like 200mil / week(?)
    UPS is a 50 man guild.

    Getting 3.8 billion per week from Guild Bonus would be same as:
    Grind 8 hours per day on all 7 days of week and with speed of 68 million / hour
    8h x 7d x 68mil /h = 3.808 billion silver

    So now the sea monster hunting is seriously going to kill the economy in BDO. Just like during Trina Musket bug time, but this time it seems to be even worse.

    I wonder why ppl were crying from Trina musket bug...

    Being mad... because even Hardcore PvP guilds are unable to reach that high in payouts.
    Breaking economy in any MMO game is not good nor fun. Item's pre-order prices are skyrocketing more and more, when you are able to earn insane amounts of money with ease.

    It seems like every time someone points out how ridiculous and destructive to the economy seamonster hunting is, you people who actually do it get super defensive.

    Nobody is saying we should remove the option to do so. What people are saying is that, you should not be making more money by ramming some floaty guys in the ocean than by owning a castle...

    Its good that the option to monster hunt is there, but they should balance it to the other ways of making money. Currently, it's worse for the game economy than octopus or koi events.

    It's not the sea monster hunting, there is nothing wrong with it.
    The problem is people using camera-lock and gamepads so they can perform instant turns with their boats which should not be possible.

    they need to turn of ramming damage and start punishing exploiters, this is getting retarded. it is obvious that game has technical difficulties but players seem to be really happy to abuse stuff like this camera ****, matchlocks and god knows what. and they dont get punished ever.

    Well, ram from stand is a bug/exploit too. It should not be possible.
     
  8. because community now complains im 100% sure that the boat Charge will be nerfed and the real ment Content as Group Play with cannons will be buffed but in total it will be no longer the most OP income.

    Take back the money they earn on "bugged" sea monsters, and take back the money they earned on guild change tricks from castles.

    on the topic of cam lock, knowing PA, if they tried to stop cam locking, it'd turn into a general PVP change yet again because cam locking is actually a thing in PVP (to the extent some skills cannot break from the lock, like Mystic Sea Burial, no matter how fast you turn that camera, you're locked to the camera with that skill, and many other skills work similarly as well)
    on the controller aspect, people use it cause it's easier, people can do it with a mouse as well (i used controller cause I'm very sensitive about even minor adjustments to my mouse sensitivity)
    and it isn't just those tactics either, they made sea monsters die faster, significantly faster even cause i doubt 3 more AP on the boat would make them die as fast as they do now by itself
    and to add to the topic in general
    this is vastly hurting the economy because as is we're already very reliant on event boxes for accessories, but with less people out grinding cause they're on the ocean, we're becoming even MORE reliant on the boxes and honestly our current accessory market is beginning to remind me of how empty **** was getting at the peak of hystria hackers issue

    First off, who the hell is UPS? EU guild? Not on the sailing boards for NA that's for sure. Secondly, there is a 20% tax weekly on all amounts over 50 billion. Finally, to get a return of 3 billion+ from sea monster farming, you have to no life it. You do nothing but grind sea monsters, 7-8 hours daily, and pray for good rng. Also requires a guild with a proper bank, honest gm and decent payout system. Also people to do all the legwork on sorting out the loot shares, totals, and make sure no one is being dishonest about their earnings.

    too late, hyperinflation is already occuring in the marketplace. Lack of ap accessories in the MP is proof of that, not to mention the insane pre-order prices that are only going to increase exponentially.

    @GM Jeste The problem is that Sea Monster Hunting has become The Topic of the month(s) and quite few players are talking about it even tho they have 0 experience with the Sailing themselves. People on Forums are coming up with all sorts of numbers and it really scares people who do anything else into thinking they are just not proficient, that they are wasting their time while Grinding / Lifeskilling etc. It would be absolute lifesaver if you could thereby address this before more people start quitting over this.

    UPS is a EU guild
    Yes there is 20% tax, and that guild has over 100 billion silver in guild bank
    If your guild has good hunting lvl and gear then it is not that hard even. Friend said that atm with good high hunting gear you can earn billion silver in 2 hours, so if a 50 man guild goes all wild at seas... money will come fast!
    This guy who i posted in OP he streams almost daily... so you can see the money counts there.
    Plus UPS guild own only 1 NORMAL node, so all that money what they have got is from Sea monsters.

    Pre-orders in EU servers are also skyrocketed
