    Kakao has been watching over the forums for quite some time now. Listening to 1,000's of complaints and always wielding the power to do something about a few of them. Yet I have never seen any attempt to alleviate, or fix issues within their control besides exploits (which happen to affect the bottom line).

    The pets are a great example of this. They are deemed as nearly mandatory for the game. Anyone who chooses to really grind in the game is essentially required to have them. You could make a silly argument that you could play without them, but it would a better use of time to question why are they not easier to obtain today?

    This includes weight upgrades as well. Why are new players still dealing with this? There are so many more optional upgrades to sell. Things far less pertinent and more optional.

    You just want free stuff! This is the best part. I don't need any of these. I am fortunate enough to already have them, but many others do not and I know how difficult the game is without them.

    So when is Kakao going to start working with it's community instead of listening to threads saying.......... I spent $x,xxx but I just can't it anymore?

    This is just a casino with the walls painted as a videogame.

    The paladin of the crowd is back, go back to your previous thread, you were starting to make some sense there. Don't ruin everything wearing the preacher cloak once again.

    Weight and Pets are a good example of nearly mandatory items. Since their release additional cash shop items have been added on a regular basis. BDO gets a lot of criticism for things like the true base cost. That generally includes some of these.

    With all the Pay2Win controversy, loot boxes, etc nothing is ever done by Kakao to demonstrate they care at all. It wasn't always that way. They went out of their way to remove Kama buffs from the cash shop as a demonstration of not being pay2win.

    Weight/Pets fall into a different category. They should be reasonably attainable by all players (all classes) without a paywall. This could be done in many ways. Highly discounted pricing, events, anniversary, but a more suitable solution would be Pearls obtainable in game.

    If by "a more suitable solution would be Pearls obtainable in game" you think about exchanging silver for pearl through an ingame system then just no.

    What about more loyalty points everyday or loyalty items cost lowered ?

    Those kind of steps would at least be heading in a better direction. It's been brought up several times that loyalty pricing needs adjusting. Loyalty was also one of their "Anti Pay2win" features as explained in their own video.

    Pearls for Silver is not a viable option. It would be more like quests, random drop, and from processing/fishing, etc. Naturally at very low rates that would not obstruct the game, but over time make it more viable to obtain at least critical items and a few perks.

    We got like 6 free pets since release ? Servers got upgraded at least once. We got one month of value pack for free etc

    Hello 2Cent do you even live in the same universe as the rest of us.

    Also good job starting a crusade for new players after having QQed to keep the vets privileges.

    Kakao should definitely start working with the community by banning you from posting anything in the forums.
