    21.9%
  3. two to five years

    40.7%
  4. will last 10 years or more

    21.3%
  5. dead game

    7.1%

    The poll question is how much time do you think Black Desert has left. Not death and sever shut down but how much time before the population dwindles until that fateful day like many mmorpg's when there are only wallet whales, white knights, and a revolving door of newbies. I know the last month has seen the loss of many guilds and players. The middle class is being gutted. Thoughts?

    In my opinion the game would be good for at least the next 2 years after that things might start to become harder as lot's of great games will start popping out & the population will be split heavily, atm there is nothing better to play that's the main reason even those who seem to hate BDO keep on playing it, but one thing is certain when we start getting more & more good alternatives here in the West a mass exodus will take place, that's inevitable.

    I agree with the way tech and games are evolving no way it stays healthy for 10 years.

    As a beta player, I think BDO will stay healthy for at least two more years (end of 2019). After that, it will depend on how good the future MMOs like Chronicles of Elyria and Ashes of Creation will be. If they are actually good, there's a strong chance a lot of people will leave BDO.

    I think long enough ...

    Trend these days is to hype your fkin **** and release it unfinished to early access with microtransactions , season passes and dlcs

    be glad you are not forced to for every damn expansion

    I just pray newer MMO's in development take the PvP style and the combat gameplay as standard....!

    topics like this are most funny when we have a spike of overpopulation again right now, being every channel in every day during the week crowded.

    Already happened a couple of months ago.

    count away all the people who just log in daily for rewards & shakatu seals or just afk lifeskill 24/7 while playing other games, because those cant really be considered part of an active playerbase.

    "wallet whales, white knights, and a revolving door of newbies" these make up atleast 95% of bdos "active" playerbase already, with most of the newbies quitting soon again.

    3-5 years ( Which is more than most new mmorpg's usually last ) And by last i mean have a healthy playerbase and be a good active game with community involvement. , All the games coming out people think are bdo killers i have already tried in alpha / beta tests and they are trash.

    It's not that bdo is dying,it's that the influx of quality mmorpg's is what's dying. This generation of gamers is moving on to instant gratification games,mobas etc.
    Bdo will be here a long healthy while. There will be no mass exodus. Some people just like to hold their fist up to the sky and watch the world burn.

    Just my opinion

    once VR takes off, and we get a Fulldive VR all mmos will die.
    then come the VRMMORPGs.

    hence why the op clearly stated what his view of a "dieing/dead mmo" is.

    Archeage only just died? I think you may need medical assistance, you have clearly been in a coma for at least 2 years :-P
