    We don't get daily loot scrolls, they get better events rewards, even their daily login reward are most of time superior to ours. We always get post nerf content not allowing us to make billions like koreans can (for example manos gear was nerfed twice and we did not get it yet).

    Simple answer my friend. Bdo makes the most money with NA/EU, so of course they delay the content as much as possible.

    The consequences are that people push with real money over hard cap instead of Ingame currency.

    So it makes sense for them to hold content back.

    Bdo mobile generates 70% of their income. But even in BDO mobile they are pretty generous. We are just third citizens of this world for them, they don't care completely.

    Sadly, it’s to force people actively play the game.
    An average western player plays 2/3 hours per day(?)
    There are people grinding a single spot for 7 hours straight, probably the top 5%.
    If you give too many free rewards, the gap between them will reduce and they don’t want this. I’ve been lucky as hell since last 8 months.
    Got to 261 with lot of one or two tap enhancing, living with daily rewards and darf rift rewards, but people can’t really enhance anything without losing his life killing the same ****ing mobs for hours and hours...

    Not really lol, somewhere in this forum a while back, its shown that Korea has had the most spending on BDO PC, which is below BDO mobile (only available in Korea).

    NA/EU is actually one of the lowest spending.

    Yeah Koreans are much bigger whales than NA/EU.

    The main reason is because it's a Korean-developed game so the Korean market always comes first.

    The secondary reason is that there is more competition in the Korean RNG Casino MMO market so you need to give better freebies to hook people.

    OP would prefer silver exploits before developers know the impact, and Value Packs with less benefits than we got on NA/EU.

    Nicely thought out post there.

    It doesn't matter if manos gear got nerfed twice before it came here they're balancing it

    Our value pack is straight up worse. KR has the same +20% more exp gain and the loot scroll. They do not get Tears and the epic bleach dye (with mervs palette on value packs...) that we get however.

    As for manos, even now it's too profitable in KR but they have the lootscrolls to even it out a bit for grinders. That's why we aren't getting Manos. Also KR got better Shataku, a complete set of capotia + bartali (6/6 at level 62) to make it easier to enhance accessories since the fall back isnt so big. They wonder why their playerbase in KR doubled when they took over in KR, thats why.

    I'm sure the database is just reflecting the NA/EU item in the KR database so it's wrong.
    https://bdocodex.com/kr/item/17583/ - linking it just in case someone can find the KR pack in there.

    Do you mind linking your source or a screenshot? As I've understood it, some of the benefits are tied to PC Cafe use and not to all users - would like a clarification here, and there's not a lot of good info about it.




    KR has a newer shakatu. We know about the content lag (which includes Manos, Bartali).

    I personally don't like having stuff in the game which give big short term gains for existing players which are nerfed later because they are OP - a lot of people resent silver exploits of this nature.

    And as far as Capotia goes.. an extra set is +4AP for your backup alt? I'd love to have it but it's not significant.

    NA/EU is not *harder* its *Less* P2W.

    Nuance.

    We see that the OP is a plague problematic casual.




    Paying for make a game more *easy* its a anti-gamer mentality.

    Cause NA/EU don't believe in Pay2Win Mechanics, we in turn have to work harder for the leisure gameplay since we cant just "Dump" money into the game and have Pens freely handed to us and Failstacks to buy for enhancement.

    Are you serious dude?

    Just cuz you got a few players linking pen gear all day does not mean the NA/EU servers are massive purchasers of pearl. That just means the other servers have A LOT more pearl purchasers lol.

    Also, are you trying to say that Pen gears = Pearl purchasing?

    like many already said
    A bit less p2w underline the game annoyance, so it appear "harder", while the KR version have everything in the CS to fix BDO annoyance ( and thoses annoyance are on purpose there to push players to the CS ), so the game appear to be "normal"

    And since they never "balanced" our version to compensate with in game tweak somes p2w dump absence... here we are.

    Enjoy the PA buisiness model / way of doing things to milk player hard.

    Idk, prob we like the girls here more than the kr like theirs or we have it easier to access pron.

    Where did they make this studie? Did they compare 20yr old us/eus vs 80yrs old krs or are we harder over the whole population? Was the studie during kr's no nut nov?
