    "The Guild Boss content was available to provide guild members opportunities to get together during the nights on weekends to defeat the Guild Bosses and share the loot. However, as time passed by, adventurers have grown stronger and stronger, making the rewards not as appealing as they used to be. Currently only 20% of all guilds have been defeating all the Guild Bosses excluding Khan,"

    How about reverting it to the old ways? Or increase the drop rate by x20

    They will never do that. Because gambling is there main income. They would sell less if you knew things are a 0.00001% drop rate.

    Indeed

    Thing is if it is actually 0.00001% that's somewhat exceptible - we know what we're working with..

    But BDO is altering that (depending) to 0.000001% at times

    Is their criteria: certain times, zones, population, market saturation, maybe even your ap and dp or even how many pearls you've spent recently, VP going etc

    All I know is, it fluctuates - which is illegal as BDO is selling so called 'enhancements' of this droprate %

    Imagine buying a 2 litre BMW and finding out later it's a 1.8, BMW would have to pay back billions

    The basic premise of BDO is the grind, items and droprate % - to alter would make it a sham

    Who are the REAL exploiters here??

    I still love the game but want BDO to be an organic mmo

    I for one would like to get to the bottom of this

    The difference here is: You can't blame PA for the droprate not being what they said, because they never gave out specific numbers!

    So to correct your comparison: You bought a BMW without knowing anything about it and later you found out it's a 1.8 litre. You want to sue BMW, but because they never said it would be 2 litre you can't!

    And with good reason, they can't change them to earn more if they had.

    Well, it's more like saying, "You can win a BMW with scratch tickets here, there are 5 winners guaranteed." But no end date, so the winner can be some on 20 years from now. As we havent printed the winning ticket yet. Eventually there will be 5 winners, so they aren't lying. But because they will only make the winning tickets after 20 years. You do feel scamed. As there was no way to win at the start.

    For example. I made a ticket to return a pearl item. Why? I bought the item WHILE there was a sale on. They had the item on sale and not on sale (same item, char expansion coupon) Now it is in there rules to refund a pearl item. And as i ment to buy the one that was on sale, i did not notice there was one that was not on sale. And used a discount coupon to boot. This was 23 days ago and i still havent gotten a responds. Oc the sale is now long finished.

    Not only that. But if they refunded the pearls at the start i would have bought the one that was on sale and that would have been that. There normal responds time is 7 days or even less. But if they ignore everyone that wants a refund because they didn't notice they bought the not on sale item instead of the on sale item. That's extra income they can shrug off as "O sorry, we saw this to late". I bet you they ignore those requests as long as they can to use that excuse. Or to ignore it till the person gives up, and not refund anything. The company has a scam mentality of handeling things. They dance around the law trying to get as much money bending the law but not technically braking it. But in reality they have a vile way of handeling there customers.

    I disagree

    You do, know what you're buying and what was advertised, an 'Item collection increase scroll' at 100% droprate this has to be from a stationary amount.

    Decreasing droprate % (nerfing it) will make the loot scroll 80% etc

    But they're selling at 100% which in other words is 'digital content that doesn't conform to the contract'

    If BDO choose to fluctuate droprate % then either: this needs to be reflected in the digital content and price or not sold at all

    My central point remains, buying 'droprate enhancements' at this point, is futile

    And if this is a plausible explanation then I want my money back.

    Really an independent body should do an audit and find out exactly what the droprate is, especially as this the fundamental premise of what BDO is selling

    Here's another analogy for ya:

    Sure playing blackjack at the casino is gambling but the shuffler isn't adding more 2 of diamonds to the pack etc the base odds are the same

    And you get what you pay for.

    You claim they are frequently changing the drop rate (there is no proof for it but ok, i'll just go with it), but the item collection increase scroll still does the same.
    The scroll says "Item Drop Rate +100%". And it increases the drop rate by 100%, no matter what the actual drop rate is.

    Lets say an item got a drop rate of 0.002 %. With the scroll you get a drop rate of 0.004 %, which is +100 %.
    Now you claim they changed the drop rate to, lets say, 0.0015 %. With the scroll you get 0.003 %, which still is +100 %.
    So you still got what you paid for.

    100% of what? What ever they decide it is, do you realise how ridiculous that is

    So with your argument they could make it 0 % chance and then that 100% is nothing, just lol mate

    Read my last analogy, it would be illegal to add cards and BDO is potentially doing the same

    Oh I have enough proof to know.

    Particularly at droprate events is when you notice and that's where they mess up

    Last 50% droprate event, or one before: did a test no enhancements

    3 million Aakman kills so I know the numbers

    1000 elite guardians - 0 scroll

    700 elite watcher - 0 scrolls

    400 punisher - 0 scroll

    You're a fool if you put that down to 'rng' during a 50% increase lmfao

    This 40% event, kama 15 lootscroll no Tungrad, dropping as every 5 hours as normal right b4 event

    They must feel Aakman and droprate events are op - we should be informed at least

    But it goes way back over 2 years a go at manshaums, narcs dropped like rain market would fill up 6 weeks later no drops market empty rinse n repeat for a year.

    Completed 30 lootscrolls at Star's still no distortion few months ago dropped max every 8 hours.

    So you see it does fluctuate and is why my core point is right droprate enhancements are a con or at the very least not worth the price

    Thats exactly how the scrolls work!
    You pay for scrolls which increase the drop rate by 100 %, you get scrolls which increase the drop rate by 100 %!
    There is nothing illegal about it.

    Lets say you get a coupon with 50 % off on a TV so you decide to go and buy it, but in the meantime they have raised the price for this TV, you also will only get the 50 % of the new price, not the old one!

    Then show me this proof.

    I agree with you on this. The scroll will do what it is said too do. But it is hard to trust a company that will put gambling and secrecy first. That's why non gaming companies try to be as transparent as possible. But not BDO. It will always lower the trust if you refuse to show dmg numbers and drop %. But one thing is for sure. There is tons of gambling in this game.

    Btw, the ticket i made today about a error in game. Got responds for it . The ticket i made about a pearl item. Still nothing and i'm sure they will just keep it like that till i stop responding and it closes. Tho according to there own guidlines, my request was perfectly valid. But it would mean they had to give a few pearls back. like 2€worth. Apparently they are really grasping for every $/€they can atm.

    Ingame errors and pearl items are different departments. But maybe it helps if we summon @GM Dew or @GM Salome
