    Value packs and Artisans memories, they dont give anybody a massive advantage as claimed here by a few ppl. They dont, nor will you be at a disadvantage if you dont use them, you can easily play the game without them, especially without artisans. You can buy value packs ingame (even if its hard) which makes it even less of an advantage. There is NO mechanic in bdo that gives anybody that drops money on the game a massive or any advantage. As I said before the only thing borderline p2w is artisans but thats very borderline. The rest of the cash shop is literally nothing but cash grabs, and cosmetics.

    Another ridiculous post LMAO. You have either zero clue what P2W actually means or purposely distorting the definition to fanboy this game using predatory methods. The gear cap is extremely high in this game (that almost no one has full PEN) so ANYTHING that speeds up the process (artisan memory) by giving more chances at enhancing is P2W because a non paying player simply wouldn't have as many chances at better gear. That's DIRECT P2W.

    I don't either, but I don't feel the need to ask other players to leave the game because of it.

    You don't notice it. You need to stack a plethora of exp buffs to even see a relative increase in exp gain. Anybody can do that as well. That's why your being laughed at, you have no idea.

    Oh yes they do and it's just not the value packs and artisans although these are extremely p2w. Now add pets, weights, workers, costumes, tents and everything adds up to create this heavy p2w mechanic.

    You're right that I don't notice it because I have uninstalled this trash last week BUT the buffs are absolutely noticeable to anyone who wants to be competitive. The paying player advances 30% faster than a non paying player with NO CAP. That advantage is permanent lol. You have to be absolutely delusional to claim BDO isn't P2W.

    Now add the other pearl store items which gives even more advantage to gain power (=Better gear and higher level).

    to be fair though, the level bonuses have actually quite little impact when ur within certain range of ur opponent. The way the game handles it; regardless of what lvl is soft or hardcapped, there will always be 1 2 lvls achievable for the dedicated and the "no lifer", atm that is 62 and 63, but 61 is quite achievable for the majority and makes u able to compete within this lvl range. The amount of time it takes at such lvl is just so high regardless of buffs that one can question its healthiness, nor does it really serve much impact other than bragging rights? Something for those who likes to see lvl % go up.

    Moral of the story? BDO is p4c (pay for convenience) not p2w (pay to win)

    its not about being lazy, but having equal advantage. Having 2 pots (2 keys) potentially pressed every 2 sec on the very .0 of cd, no delay, is OP when the option is pressing manually inbetween all the other micromanaging that happens during pvp. There will be situations where 2 equal players meet or u facing a strong opponent, then this fairy will be a great teamplayer, and thats what BDO is, a stats game, have the most of everything + reaction time/knowledge. If you are not capable of seeing this then i will gladly be the lazy one, and u the ignorant.

    Yeah, instead of paying 800m and grind 40 hours for that you pay 200m and 80E and get the same thing. It's not p2w at all :) Delusional.
    Let's see what happens when you compare 1 bil to 4 bill, oh well only 50 hours of grind vs 200 hours of grind so someone who spends 400E in a month is in the same spot as someone who plays the same ammount of hours but in 4 months.
    Not P2W lul LUL LUL. People are so bad at math.
    It's ok when they make Artisan memory X10 it's gonna be still not p2w :)
