    ... don't.

    That's what they want you to do. You quitting actually earns them more money, because they can cut back on server rent and they can lay off/reallocate some stuff members from the community managers.

    Instead, if you can still find any joy in this game and you really want to hurt them, just keep playing it casually. BUT DON'T SPEND A FREAKING DIME FROM NOW ON. Become a burden for them. Play the game as they advertise it with their actions... F2P. Overwhelm their servers until the whales start crying about the bad server stability. Thus they will have no choice but to put more money into BDO if they don't want to lose their precious whale population.

    Spread the word and rise up! Hurt them where it really hurts! Hurt them at the only place they care about being hurt. At their wallet!

    The only issue with this is that it large login numbers give the game the false APPEARANCE of success

    Boycotting the pearl shop might be the only thing that the community can do, but luckily it's also the most devastating thing for the company.

    Which will drag in even more players we can convert to our F2P ways! Or who knows... maybe they will have enough new players to come to their senses and stop with this p2w nonsense... On one hand they are trying to improve the game, trying to prolong it's life... on the other hand they are introducing p2w crap that kills it the fastest way possible. They seem to be conflicted, but there is still goodness in them. They haven't joined the dark side completely.

    Would be fun to organize an event on the day of p2w release and just go have fun not buying anything.

    Love that new non-skimpy armor, but @#$% em. They can't even do something as simple as make Savage Rift good.

    That is not true. Several things have changed because Koreans got upset and the company reverted their changes.
    Remember the time they decided to remove the crate over stacking on horses? It was reverted back because Korean players got really upset about it.

    This is no different. If enough players get upset and stick to their guns they will have to revert or change what they did.

    Exactly, I have seen a ton of times that the forum community has become outraged over p2w and what the devs promised.

    Continuing the Play gives the players who are still buying crap, the mistaken impression that they are making a sound Investment as opposed to forcing those players to come to terms with the fact they're playing an Empty world devoid of real Content but full of fake plastic dolls.

    The less people playing, the more obvious it becomes to "whales" and "dolphin" players that there's no one else to show off to, fewer people to Fight and "Pwn", and thus no point in putting all their money into a community that was already "sunsetting"

    True but this will not happen. There are many players that just play BDO for enjoyment, and have the money to spend to improve that enjoyment. Which is what it should be all about, getting enjoyment out of playing a game.

    problem is, many people invested money for their enjoyment also, and did so based on the promises made by the company. it is now that they feel cheated and robbed of their money and soon enjoyment when p2w gangs come into play.
