    Nope, they left for many reasons. I doubt when they finally came here to express their displeasure, a few white knights lying about the game not being P2W didnt set them over the final edge to quit the game.

    You would like to believe everyone is as sensitive as you i guess, but that is simply not true. What you classify as negativity is just casual conversation most of the time.

    It's a singleplayer game. And not even a good one at that.

    yeah. this guys has been back in game trying to get others to leave now.

    yet here you are and still buying megaphones....lots last night

    how? he purposely excluded the lat option, Game ISNT dying. A moderator included it, and it's got 60% of the votes! that's quite funny.,

    I still wonder if the moderator would add "the game is dying" on an opposite thread though.

    It would be pretty challenging to first of all phrase an opposite thread in the same stupid way.

    Wha
    . What opposite thread? Opposite would be why is the game growing? Then mods should add option of game isn’t growing. You made a false comparison.

    Having come from a publisher where we cycled games like changing underwear, I've probably read this thread and all its sentiments a thousand times over, so much that I could probably write a movie script from memory.

    When you boil it down, at the end...you have all the gear, and you have all the levels, and you have the trinkets and doodads and bells & whistles.... And youve done it all, till one day you're standing around feeling like there isn't anything left...

    And it's a right feeling to have, because games are built to entertain us,...and when you're not entertained anymore then what does a game offer you at that point...?

    But that's the nature of every game out there isn't it? Every game has that plateau that a user reaches where they feel like there isn't anything else for them to aspire to or achieve....

    But in all my years, what I have found to always be true, ...as a wise Game Master once told us young game sages.... In the end, what is most important, is Community. It's your friends, your allies, your foes and your comrades. The trolls and the knights, the peepos and peepettes, (and baguettes)....

    Community is what makes a game alive, and only when the community is gone, does a game truly begin to feel The Nothing. There are games to this day whose towns and zones are empty and barren as The Nothing, but still they are alive because they have the one thing keeps their servers online, and their taverns lively with banter and song;

    Community.

    Quite a funny sentiment.

    BDO is designed in a way to avoid community-building. The only element that slightly supports community-building are node wars - and that's an activity for the upper 1% of the playerbase. Node wars and Vell are the only reasons why you want other people anyway - else BDO is pretty much a Single Player experience.

    Why is that so? Because for greedy publishers, proper communities suck. They're goddamn awful in several ways. They complain about sh*tty things. They demand reasonable game design. All that kind of stuff. That's why most publishers - especially of modern MMORPGs don't want proper communities. They're bad PR and complain about P2W-shenanigans and bad game design.

    You can still have a great community in a single player game. I am GM for a great PVE lifeskill guild that supports all it's member and enjoys bringing new players into the game

    That's sounds like a oxymoron to me.

    Obviously you and a few others are the ones who don't understand the poll options, and that 4 of the options fall under the category of the game dying, while one abstains and the other is against. Those that are for are the majority, and against is in the minority. LOL!

    Imagine not comprehending the fat that multiple choices are allowed thus many people probably voted several times, except those who think game isn't dying.

    Sigh, post more fancy pictures, doesn't make your point more relevant but at least you please teenagers.

    I'm not a teenager so I wouldn't know, I'll have to take your word for it.

    You do realize nothing prevents you from clicking all of them?

    The poll is garbage. Just like the game.

    Is that picture pleasing enough for you?
