We can have global P2W but not global content.

    Isn't that hilarious that after all that crap about having 1 global build of the game to justify p2w options in cash shop we get HEAVILY delayed content and EU NA exclusive censorship, garbage events that cant compare to KR versions?

    Content is being used as a quick profit booster when their analytics tank or when they need a quick burst of money before their scheduled income reports.

    They are running a business here and you got to understand that to some extent but the stuff they pull off is unethical and hurts the PR of the game which is already horrible the hate bandwagon is in the full speed, whenever you mention bdo to someone it's like oh its that p2w game with pretty graphics and grinding? usually followed up by BD: Omegalul: Just sad.

    Would you care to give examples of which content is not available in EUNA that is live in KR that has been out for longer than a month?

    We are pretty synched up at the moment so there isn't much we dont have yet that isn't either scheduled for us or is specifically exclusive.

    Examples, if you will.

    Doesn't matter if you company about P2W if people still pay. Truefully game companies like this make money off a small portion of its audience. What makes it worse are the people that dont see it, ignore it, or just try to quiet everyone down about it. Threads like this mostly go ignored as its asking for a company to be less greedy, which that doesn't make money but takes from it. Look how they were able to get the game on every console and censor a character, yet can seem to lower the price on their cash shop. They make a problem then sell you a solution. They pad out game time with RNG.

    KR doesnt have all the Manos Content yet...they have some things, but Manos is part of Lifeskill Mastery and some of it is still being worked on...trading and farming i think?

    Any other examples

    Ok..1 example...30 days old so far, any more?

    (Fyi not sarcasm, just keeping notes on what is missing)

    everyone and their mother is waiting for new bartali and deve logs. and those are kinda big due to permanent stats they give.... and people have planned and prepared their gear/builds accordingly. but the logs just arent coming to our version for some unknown reason.

    i dont really follow the updates . but even 1 week or 2 week delay is bad . the content gets spoiled , its getting a used up contents , it kills the hype and excitement .
    and we must wait for big update like expansions and see how much those delay.

    this too ... i tottaly forgot about it

    Now that i will disagree with because localization is more than just translation, but in any case....

    the solution is to hold the contents til they localize then ... or have kakao team working with them while making the content , not asking kakao to start after content is released in korea

    They won't spend another 5$ for another negative review.
    Don't be idiot, they holding content to counter any other game coming out - everyone doing this, not only Kakao, literately every publisher doing that.
    5-10$ for account from Chines site and you ready to download game.

    Honestly if inventory and weight could be acc bound then all p2w go away, but currently it is the sugar ontop that is just too much.

    Kakao publishes, they dont develop.

    Katan & Sandwind, just like Bartali and Deve have direct effects on gameplay and progression so they are probably just seeing how those things play out in lesser volatile environment first...i can respect that


    Manos has not been out for two years. Sorry, but no. Sycraia, is out. The question posed is what is currently not synced, not what once wasn't.

    Also, don't bite the helper that's inquiring for your interests.

    Manos, see previous comments.

    Costumes - actually quite a number were not available in EUNA. We started tracking these from the Library. Most have come to euna now. There are a couple that I was recently informed of and once we have updated our tracking sheet will be asking if its possible to get them, minus the ones that are regionally exclusive.

    Shai leggings - this is not a delayed content, this is a localization, and it is what it is.

    Attendance rewards - these vary due to localization

    Bartali - see previous comments

    daily loot scroll with vp would be a really nice thing to have.









    like koreans do.



    might seem silly to some, but it also affects economy us not having that.

    thought publishers do the translating and localizing . with thinking like this we will never have a global version ... i mean u can use the same logic on every content , every thing has direct effects on the gameplay ....

    also keep that in mind , the bdo sea got lunched at 17 January 2018 while our version lunched at 3 March 2016 , there is a 2 years gap there , but they r getting the exact contents as we do , while we have 1 year gap to korea

    Mmm yeah the VP disparity was always a marketing trade off since the beginning. The loot scrolls have a direct effect on economy, and larger the population, well...anyhow....usually heavier or more silver sinks get created before things that add more new silver....

    They did overtime slowly release more and more into EUNA from events and what not, so I imagine they have been monitoring the effects on our economy.

    For the marketing part, the only answer I can give you there is that KR versions are usually more sped up progression and economic wise due to regional differences, such as game curfew laws that impact the larger portion of their playerbase.

    Of course they are...global build doesn't mean "EUNA" o_O there are more countries and people than just Americans and Europeans. So those regions typically will get sped up releases, especially for content that has already been run through the wringer well enough.

    Localization - go back to what I said, it means more than just translation. Much more. Economic balancing due to regional differences is one of the bigger parts of it.
