    Just give us Drieghan/Lifeskill mastery so we can have some content; we're closing in A YEAR since Kama was released; for the love of god.

    “We are ecstatic after seeing that our hard work on Black Desert Remastered has been so positively perceived by the community at large. The heart-warming reactions have definitely been a morale booster. We want to thank our players all over the world for playing our game,” said Jae Hee Kim, executive producer at Pearl Abyss, in a statement. “We are highly motivated to keep the game current and up-to-date by continuing to develop exciting new content while striving for continuous improvements and optimizations. Pearl Abyss is currently working on a previously announced Drieghan expansion, which is expected to arrive to the Western markets later this year. Mobile and console versions are expected to launch worldwide this year."

    The statement is a joke, and the CM posting it knows it perfectly well. Not a single thing said in it makes any sense at all. Hence all the "well the developers said" stuff. They admit it doesn't make any sense, so they aren't willing to own it themselves. It's just "sorry guys, we know they're stupid and greedy but there's nothing we can do about it."

    Agreed. He said it well and was bold enough to make it pretty clear what's going on.

    There was no "confusion to his post" or anything of the sort. PA has the final say, whether Kakao likes it or not. They can complain and ***** to them all they want but they'll get no where. Either they need to sit and conform to what PA wants, or they drop their contract/not renew and find another publisher that's willing to do it. Or all they tend to see are dollar signs in their eyes.

    ~~~~~~~

    What's even worse is now is what @CM Praballo actually said compared to what @CM Servantes said. This just puts the target on your back as you guys were completely ok with horrible changes that you knew the community would hate. "But think of the money!!!!!" Good job tearing up the ONE viable excuse you had for these extremely hated changes.

    But compromises! PA and Kakao made compromises with this patch!
    "Pearl costumes are easier to buy with prices being higher!" - Perhaps if you sit all day in front of the market place trying to snipe 1 from the hundreds of other people doing it, all while hoping the server or your net doesn't lag and stop the bid button from appearing for 3-4 seconds.

    "Valks Cry can be purchased in the loyalty shop!" - At least one thing was done properly, but price per and for only 5 a week... For new players, that's 5 days of straight playing for a week's worth (100 per piece), not even considering that most will need inventory space, warehouse space, and not including the challenge loyalty points you get for being logged in. For older vets, that's nothing, but for new players that need all the assistance they can from playing the game, it'll be rough in the beginning.

    I honestly don't see much compromise in this patch... All I saw were the vision of dollar signs in people's eyes.

    ~~~~~~~

    I was alright with it being under the idea of the "global build", but apparently now that it was "a misleading" post, it's good to know that I shouldn't be wasting my money on a company that is slowly becoming a worse Aeria or Arc. Hell, I was willing to defend them for these changes under the pretense of global build, but not anymore. Next thing we know, they'll be selling boss gear in the pearl shop if it continues down this road.

    well, they cant really come out and say we r just atms for them and that their ceo wants his bonus. :D

    they need to make profit, and noone is against it, but they could have gotten those profits via many different ways without introducing full blown p2w.

    Maximizing profits means lowering costs of production, so that's why you still have imbalanced pvp, no Dreighan, no new content, gender locked classes, no ban waves, customer service is shite, they didn't fix some bugs for months... You can't maximize profits if you need to invest money into devs who will fix problems. But yeah, "devs need to eat", "this game costs moneh", "a company needs to profit", "going full p2w is good for the game" and what else brainless ******** I've read today.

    Core members (me and everyone who regularly buys VP, pets and costumes) are leaving and complaining as much, if not more than freeloaders since those have no clue what is goin on (almost as you in most cases)...
    Also some experience from university with economy and from work with marketing.. No they are not focusing on their core members.. They are trying to abuse the wealthiest minority to milk as much money as fast as possible, while not caring about other groups or longevity of the game at all... Freeloaders will leave bcs they cant progress nor are willing to pay, regular members will leave as time goes by bcs there is no content and they are oppressed from the top by whales and from the bottom there is noone to support them and whales will leave bcs they will get everything with few swipes and there is nothing to do afterwards, since impossible porgress is the only thing this game has (beside graphics)...

    SO ebfore you start talking about eocnomy, focus, future and mental age, at least grow up yourself and finish that elementary school already...

    The same one you are. Look at your own chart, at the end. It dipped to 10k, now it's up to 14k.

    Still down hugely compared to a year ago, mind you. But The two of you are obviously looking at the same chart, you just don't seem to be able to read it right.

    Like I said most people are just all talk that pretend that they will quit because they couldent have there way but Kakao knows ya won't because you are hooked and if ya do quit its no loss to them.

    Kakao have made more money this week than they have for the Q3 current prior to matinance.

    Yep it isn't about total numbers it's about whale numbers and how much each whale spends. The whales have been dropping thousands of dollars since the patch, so Kuckao and PA would have be happy even if they had lost overall numbers. Free players don't matter, only whales do.

    Well this game will die sooner or later.
    Even if whales matter more then others, they still can not compensate the player loss that is curently happening.
    ~ 23% player loss on the steamcharts after the patch.

    Furthermore, what they really do not understand is that they won' t be able to publish ANY game in the future because their image is ruined forever after they lied so many times.

    WE DO NOT FORGET AND WE DO NOT FORGIVE KAKAO/PEARL ABYSS

    Do you even know what you are reading?

    I will spell it out you seem to lack some fundamental education here.

    In the month of August the average daily was around 10k players.

    After the patch dropped for these last two updates. The average is back up to 15k daily.

    Meaning remastered and this enchanting update if you want to call it that brought back around 4 to 5k players.... Not reduced the count.

    Just bcs 2 of you are illiteral the same way, doesnt mean you are right...

    15k peak last 24h, 10k average last month, who knows how will average look this month... Goes from 11k to 15k... ANyway doesnt change a thing on you two not bein able to distinguish between average and peak...

    So i will explain it to you, since i am aware you have comprehension problems persisting for years as we can see in most topics you participate in..

    Peak = maximum.
    Average = middle between maximum and minimum.

    You could even hover over the grapoh to see the numbers goin up and down, but that wouldnt help you anyway if you cant understand those 2 words above...

    30 days includes sept 1 and sept 2, august is august, it's done.
    So you can say there's been a growth for average number of players by 218 so far in september. Peaks are the same which means it was hit sometime in august.
    The only thing you can really infer about the population right now is that those that quit in august haven't really returned.

    WHy would i apologize for you bein illiteral? You and that other potati should apologize for skipping math classes at elementary school and having others around you read those stupid remarks of yours...

    Even if peak hits 20k to bump up average back to 15k it is sth we have no effect on and cant predict... So me pointing out you bein unable to read simple chart kids can understand is once again irrelevant to it..

    But as is aid, after a month you should be the one apologizing... Bcs if it wont hit 15k you are dumb twice and if it hits, you are still illiteral and annoying to others just ebcause you cant read yourself but at least a bit lucky... So the only thing we will see is if you are as lucky as you are dumb or you are not lucky at all doubling up on the former...
