    Well monitezed cash shops are + gamplay that greatly benefits by using cash shop = $$$$$$

    BDO can have a player spend several hundred dollars a month easily - many hardcore players spend $300+ every month 

    Also a huge contributor to why first half of 2017 was so successful - Steam Launch, they sold over 600K copies, thats a lot of new players spending cash on pets, costumes to sell on AH to earn little silver before realizing that $30 costume - silver return is not worth it.

    If they release revenue for 2nd half of 2017,  it will be much lower than 1st half.

    Their next big bump will be console release, until then they are coasting on existing playerbase.

    Grats to Kakao and PA

    Indeed.  They suck for us gamers, though.

    Here's a chart showing the point when Rockstar started using microtransactions:
