I found this video to be very interesting and informative. It helps put insight and logic behind some of the thoughts and feelings Ive had about Black Desert Online for sometime now. In fact its amazing how when the speaker dives deep into the four parts of "Monetization by Bartle Type" how well each of these techniques apply to how PA and Kakao handle BDO. Of course the last one being content. The one area where a company stands to gain the least amount of money, that one is provided for free. I used to defend BDO's monetization of off that exact point. After it's very reasonable purchase price, BDO offers tons of content and updates for perceptually free. Now though...after having all of the other areas that arent free dissected...its makes me question the morality behind the cash shop. Im not arguing BDO isn't a good game. Or that anyone who enjoy's it shouldn't play it. Obviously buying pearls is a choice. However the purposeful manipulation has me now on edge after years of playing. I knew it was there all this time. I just didn't let it bother me. Until now. Anyone else feel similarly? Or do you see things differently? Share your thoughts below.
