    Just because you dont understand what other people mean doesnt automatically make their argument wrong.

    Hint : the idea is that nobody is able to decide this for others. I don't find it justified, you have no word in my decision. Your argument is wrong. Period.

    Now, I suggest you to go back on topic. I suggest, I do not decide for you though.

    I rarely write on forum, but come on, man lol :D
    i played for months with just basic package, and with time (one per month) got two others.
    After that, i buy only VPs (when i dont get one from MP).
    Maybe im not spoiled enough, but i can play if i dont have EVERYTHING on the first day or month or even year.
    I even rerolled 3 times and never bought coupons. I just sold my TET weapons and bought new ones for next class. Yes, i lose some silver, but grinding/gathering/imperials gets it back. Who cares...

    Game IS enjoyable (dont event want to say PLAYABLE) without those 100eur.
    Sure, there are ppl who want to have it all at their start, but not all.

    IF someone is new to the game then they dont need anything so stop spouting bs. If they want all the convient p2w crap then they can decide whether or not they want it. What someone else thinks a new player needs or whether it be to expensive or not is not decided by you but the NEW player themself. The majority of these comments are personal opinions from people deciding what is good and bad for players that have yet to even play the game.

    Now if they asked you personally then your input would be valid since it was asked and they can make up their own decison. As for the majority of people who play all have different circumstances so what they can and cant afford is up to them.

    The only thing that is needed to play this game for most people is an account and seasons being part of the game means its free.

    It may still be a unpleasant experience because of the inconveniences deliberately put by devs in the game.
    That's the idea, saying that BDO is totally fine without any purchase is misleading for new players. We have to warn them that later they will meet annoying situations showing them the CS solution, having to manually pick up the insane amount of loots is one of them because mass slaughter is the way most grind spots are designed here. Players who like grinding should be warned about this.

    So PA doesnt have the right to decide what they think is justified for their goods but you have the rights despite having no ownership over it whatsoever. For you its totally justified if you can decide the price. Or even better. What if PA just worked for free? And you dont have to pay for anything. Doesnt that sound great? Nevermind that all employees will either quit the job or die from starvation, as long you get everything for free, right?

    What about you come off your high horse and pay up the 22 bucks so PA can at least pay for the company coffee for 1 day? Or is that also not justified by yours truly? "How come PA is allowed to drink coffee? They have to make me my new expansion for free so i can play it. hurrdurr."

    Thanks for showing that you can't even grasp such an easy reasoning, so I won't lose more time trying to explain it to you. Have a nice day!

    BDO is the type of mmo where if you didnt start early and get lucky or carried by a huge seige guild you may as well not play at all. Money and time sink trying to play catch up which is not going to ever happen. Even when the top 1% geared player base exploit they're not permabanned or punished in any way. I suggest finding something else.

    Personally speaking I'd much rather PA do like Western Devs. and sell me content rich expansions for $60 each and smaller DLCs for $20 each, and charge a single $15/month subscription, and give me actual enjoyable content. Instead of gimping the game. And try to sell me the convenience of overcoming the gimped gameplay. But that's just me.

    Myself and many others are willing to spend 3 to 5 times more time and money on those games than BDO. That's why they are more populated even in their base game starter zones. Than BDO is in it's endgame zones.

    I don't know I guess personally speaking. I just rather play a actual game, with some nice content. And not some virtual online casino disguised as a MMO. That rarely have social interaction. Not saying BDO is bad, just highlighting my viewpoint that can be proven by a cursory search.

    I just did.

    Unfortunately thats how eastern devs monetize their stuff. And since humans are hairless apes they fall for every trap. And since honor is not actually a thing, thats what we are left with. The only way to keep it reasonable is to set up rules for yourself that balance your spending habbits.

    You have 3 pets after doing main quests, very easy + one pet for the steam anniversary after 14 days of playing
    you have a lot of xp bonus, aka the 530% scrolls, all daily bonuses, after hitting level 50, 56 and 58 you have a day xp scroll that can be useful for xp sessions, you can also get the loyalties items that helps for various things

    and on top of all that, all the seasoning quests rewards + black spirit ones, you can even auto walk and just kill random monsters while doing them and you'll hit all you need


    Your post is useless, all that is discovered while playing casually and doesn't require a single cent, at much just a google search

    IIRC current softcap is 261 AP 301 DP but it might actually be higher.

    Sure, you can play a trial BDO with many inconveniences, nobody's denying that.

    That's the main reason Eastern MMOs are so infamous in the West. And have such a horribleP2W sigma by default these days.

    Ehh... what? Since when do you need to buy value pack, pets and the season pass to TRY the game? I didn't use a value pack for the first half year, you get one every 14 days through loyalties basically, and your starting progression gives you some too. You get 3 pets through quests. And the season pass is just additional luxury. While I agree that the pearl shop is ridiculously expensive in some aspects (weight, inventory), this is just... wow.
    On seasonals you can quest your way up, you get the Tuvala gear which is easily obtainable and enhanceable, and we got the TRI main quest accessories, on normal servers you currently have Oasis gear. There is a whole bunch of easy progression right in front of you..

    It's called a red herring, make you think you're progressing when your gear score will still be total crap that blocks you from content and gets you 1 shot in PvP.

    Carrot on a stick, have you. You now have full TRI, go for those TETs on real gear. Buy those artisans from our pearl shop, spend it all and get 0 TETs in return, but now your fail stack is higher, surely your next purchase of artisans will get you there. You can always grind 260 mill in game to buy a pearl shop costume for cron stones to do cron attempts on TETs. Of course the 260 mill will take you 3x+ as much time as if you were full TET to acquire from grinding, but you can still do it...much easier to buy the outfits from the pearl shop....
