    With Crimson Desert and Plan 8 on the horizon, they would definitely want NA and EU market for them selves.
    Also EU market might give problems, cause of EU Laws and member states income inequality, but NA for sure is a gold mine.

    And Black Desert is a perfect testing ground for setting up Network in the region, to be prepared for CD and Plan 8 releases.

    There is also Steam sales, they would want to grab that too from Kakao for this regions.

    I get the frustration, I've just personally learned to live with PA's design choices because i understand who their main player-base they design around is; it's their South Korean players.

    Years ago, i was speaking with a friend who does game interviews in the area he lives in, and was at a PAX one year doing a small interview with someone who worked over at a game studio at the time.

    During that interview the topic of Black Desert came up when speaking about South Korean game design.; and i remember he told me something that he quoted later from that interview- (Granted this is from memory so i don't recall the exact quote, so forgive me if someone recalls this interview somewhere.) "Korean gamers love to kill stuff and they like looking pretty while doing that."

    Out of context that may seem like a odd quote, but when i first heard that; it immediately resonated with me and my time with Korean mmorpg's- because almost ever korean-based MMO i had ever played up to that point- that little nugget of information rang true.

    I know what i am saying doesn't speak to the quality of PA's game design- but it can certainly be made as a argument for it's aesthetic.

    Yes, to everything that you posted above.
    I agree with all that you said and yet, to our disadvantage, these are the forums of the publisher and not of the developers.
    For the latter to even notice what we say, let alone considering it as possible implementation is really tough.

    There's so many issues within this game yet there is no sign of fixing what's not working. Then you see posts like this one of upcoming "content" and you lose all hope.
    What is the point of adding another so called "class" when it's just another damage dealer?
    What is the point of adding a new zone when there is no teamwork needed, no group play and guilds are just empty chat rooms for trolling?

    Here is some sound advice,

    If people stop pumping money into their cash shop they will be forced to change how thing are regarding solo play and what the western player base wants and needs. They will have to cater to us to get our money into the game. Right now they have people pumping money in the west so they feel like they dont have to change the game.

    Just a thought for the savy amongst us.

    I like how before they even release Guardian, before they even release Awakening for Guarding they already have Succession in the making.

    Just buff some of the Pre-Awakened skills on all classes and call it a day, stop with this Succession bs...

    Level 63/64 Capotia accessory reward improvement WHEN???

    We understand PA/Kakao feel they will lose revenue if those accessories are too good.

    Income can be gained from players having a reason to reach high levels and accessories still have to swapped out for improvements.

    I big part of BDO is levelling but 63/64 rewards are useless, unworthy, outdated and need to be updated.

    Suggestions:

    Scrap the accessories - 2 billion silver at 63, 3 billion at 64 and so on

    Adjust accessories so they make sense, ap, dp, hp, plenty of accuracy etc

    Swap accessories for 2000 cron or be able to vend.

    Value packs, pearls, rewards from the shop

    There are many rewards that could be worthy of levelling to this magnitude.

    Rewards for level 63/64 etc are PATHETIC and PA/Kakao know it.

    That is exactly my point, just buff both Awakening and Pre-Awakening instead of this Succession bs...

    TLDR: they'll switch 1DP for accuracy and call it REWORK!

    Is this the part where we are supposed to be excited ?
    With this ? I mean, we are supposed to be hyped by a war between Papaus and Otters ? Do you think we are 5 years old ? Who wants to play that apart from challenged or (legitimately) socially ostracized people ?
    And you want to make us believe that your next game, Crimson Desert, will have an interesting story when we see the shitshow Black Desert's has become ? Lol ....
    Is this serious ?

    Crimson Desert will be aimed at South Korean players, just as BDO is. It will feature killing shitloads of mobs in a neverending grind. Sure, they might have more group content, but that's about it. It will also be flooded with Asian classes shortly after release, you can be 100% certain about it.

    You want an MMO that's focused on dungeons/raids and other group content, play something designed for Western players. Simple as that.

    I love BDO for its pretty world and the lots of stuff to do approach. Still, I play it on and off, taking a few months break between content patches. And it's actually what I recommend for all MMO games. They're rarely worth sticking around "full-time".

    None of them is actually.
    MMORPG as such is an obsolete design nowadays, the only titles that really still works well do so because of their franchise or their historical situational annuity (WoW, FF, TESO, etc).
    MMORPGS had their golden age when technology, videogame market, users equipment rates and most of all socialization spaces available on the Internet were at a certain point.
    Nowadays, MMORPGS are no socialisation platforms anymore, newer tools are much better for that, people are alreday over connected with their own real social circle, and the market is totally saturated, hence, most of their paradygms are obsolete when viewed through the spectrum of how people use netwroks, socialize and play nowadays.

    Lol road map...
    Lahn got succession before mystic and striker.. guessing guardian succession will.be out on test server this week LOL..

    PA too scared to wreck striker with a less damage succession skill... and too afraid to give mystic more damage skills, cuz if you give mystic anywhere near damage numbers of a sorc or DK in succession may as well not even get close to a mystic in PVP

    That we know from the classes who get succession already, that is that the start to nerf them already. The first period/moths the succession is pretty good, many player go back to this class (maybe spent pearls). Then they nerf them, and the player stop playing this class. That is what happened the Ranger, they nerf the Ranger back to trash again. They even nerf Warrior, to what I don't know. But don't believe that the first version of succession for a class is definitive, wait until they have "balance" it before you change your class and spent pearls.

    Hence why I invest the 10b to get TET kutum, TET Dande and at least TRI Blackstar on any class that I want to actively play. Those change coupons are utter BS. You can have one class with PEN weapons if you want but tbh, until I reach above softcap on Accs, that ain't gonna happen for me. I get full PEN ACC before I even attempt PEN BS, Kut or Dande for a single class. Even starting at 230 AP you can make easy 50m+ silver per hour grinding and leveling and that is MUCH more enjoyable if you do that for a new interesting class upto level 62 than trying to get one toon up to 63+ cause like someone else mentioned before...the rewards for reaching above 63 are hyper garbage. If you would get all capotia Accs until you reach level 61 it would be legit good gear..but by the time you reach lv63..you can just laugh at the patheticness that is capotia.
