    I welcome the Karma changes. I don't mind PvP but just killing someone because you don't fancy him begin there or begin there before you sucks. Good decision. If you wan't PvP there are alot of options instead of PK.

    People need to stop moaning that they are getting wrecked by people that have played this game for over a year due to level gap / gear gap. Why you you all be entitled to what people that have worked for a whole year to get for "free" with all this hands holding BS. I mean I agree you should get some SOME motives to play the game but this is just stupid.

    Karma changes 100% disincentivize non-clan open world PvP. This is incredibly disappointing and detrimental to a fundamental mechanic in BDO.

    I commend Pearl Abyss for the Karma change. So long as you are against a real PvP toggle, please keep the penalties coming!

    Thank you very much.

    You can step out the city now away from the safe zone at last to explore the world?

    What about keep it at 60,000 Karma, but as addition you will gain 10% of player's wallet money? (not to be confused with bank / storage money!)
    This game is an open world PvP, but a lack of PvP-ing outside guild skirmishes is very present.

    Might adress that with Pearl Abyss, this game isn't open world PvP oriented.

    The thing is, I remember when this happened before. Now a PT of 5 is going to be griefed by level 60s over farming them stealing their mobs so they need to flag up to "try" and kill the 60.

    I remember before it actually made higher levels more angry to go and do this crap LOL

    You misunderstand - ganking is not pvp. If two players want to duke it out for a spot, that's totally fine, but when people are allowed to be bullies there's an issue. I know that karma bombing is, itself, bullying and is a side-effect of the solution to the initial problem, but, as I said, partying circumvents this entirely.

    You suggested that a stronger player should be allowed to swoop in and evict a weaker player without consequence - that is "might makes right." You're right, the opposite is ridiculous, but what I'm suggesting is that people be encouraged to cooperate/share instead of being allowed to be jerks because they can hide behind the anonymity of a digital presence.

    I agree, guild decs need to be fixed, but the list of things in this game that need to be fixed is so inordinately long that it's pointless to focus on the minor issues. Get your pvp fix in places where you're not harassing someone who doesn't want to be involved. And node wars are, without a doubt, open world. I've left node wars to run to town to buy pots, then returned immediately after. I've also accidentally run into active node wars I wasn't involved in, been killed (with no consequence for anyone), and then gone about my business.

    Your pvp experience isn't being ruined. If you want to gank someone once in a while, you still can, you just can't do it repeatedly without repurcussions. Node wars and sieges are the single best pvp option I've ever participated in in any game, ever.

    Edit: and if you don't like having to observe schedules, and want to pvp whenever you feel like it, you still have the other, less open world options

    They made the karma change to keep focus away from the potato servers burning up ( if there are any potatoes left )

    You are also free to do so. Kill all you want. No one is stopping you. Sounds to me like you're the one that feels stuff is "owed" to you and you have the only right to it.

    This game isn't fun anymore, everyone just quit and stop spending time/money on this game. Don't feel like dealing with Karma griefers for the rest of BDO life :/

    I don't ever post on forums but this is a really dumb change.

    The siege / node wars in this game is trash compared to a few others. BDO is lucky there isn't a better MMO out there atm.

    normaly id say nothing on this forum but i cant just ignore this.D:<

    So, say said player worked hard and geared up. he manages to find himself a nice grindspot. Who are you, a new player, ruining the exp for both you and him, trying to take a spot you probably cant even fully use to the max potential?

    Said person should have the right to defend his spot. To all veteran players you are the griefer and are probably just crying about being pked couse you cant take the grind spot. the complaining i bet comes from 90% new players feeling entitled to have anny and all good grind spots. No, you work to be able to claim that spot. BDO is a pvp game, you lose the fight over a spot, you suck it up, and look for a different spot.
