Game is now confirmed pay to win

perma forced rng on your character stats upon level up, dumbest design I have ever heard for an open world mmorpg competitive pvp game.

Game has only been out for a few months. That didn't take long.

Next!

I Quit.

    the lack of variety in the appearance of the equipment did it for me. It's a pity the game has so much potential is fun.

    From your experience in game can you tell me the difference between good stat and poor stat rng increases ...What type of % difference are we looking at ?

    What happened? I thought this game was the best game ever because you could fish and craft and not even bother doing anything in the game? So what are you saying? AFK fishing isn't fun a month later? Sending workers to gather mats for your isn't holding your interest? Come on, that's masterpiece quality right there. You can even breed horses! Like, how is that not the best thing ever month after month? You can't possibly be tired of it, no way.

    Game can't be p2w because there's nothing to win. What are you going to win? A grinding spot? More horses? AFK fishing spot? Best game ever is best game ever. Confirmed.

    When you are a hammer everything looks like a nail.  You can always find fault if you are looking for it.  RNG thing is great you just aren't up for the challenge.

    RNG thing is the least of the problems. Any 'loss' or 'gain' you make is offset by changes in the hidden stats.

    Might screw up the min-max'ers, but there are far bigger things undermining this game.

    Yep.  Like a misguided player base of PVP tryhards that think the game is the next MOBA.  They're going to continue to be disappointed.  Daum may want an ESport, but Pearl Abyss continues to make an RPG.  That's where the confusion lies.

    RNG means no two characters are the same.  Guess what, no two people are the same either.  More realistic.

    Still having fun.  :)  Sorry you don't but just give it up with the hyperbole.  At this point you are trolling yourself.

    The horse thing isn't "the worst" thing in the world, but more and more "it's not so bad" items and eventually you actually do have "the worst thing in the world".

    The RNG stat thing is the same thing.  "Not horrible" and "doesn't make too much of a difference".  Add up all these little things and you have a game that is poking and prodding you ever so gently from every direction to use the cash shop.

    Annoying.

    Game is certainly not going to die because of this, or the next thing.  Eventually though it will die of a thousand cuts.

    A nother opinion which should be moved to the 'BDO opinion thread'

    Concentrate on enjoying yourself, and not on why I shouldn't enjoy myself.

    The random stat thing will even out over 50+ levels to the average value of the random function's minimum and maximum value. The end difference will be minimal.

    The only reason I'm not playing BDO lately is because there's only so many hours in a day. Guild Wars 2 released an amazing patch 2 days ago and It's been a blast. 

    However, I have a scheduled "raid" in BDO tonight :) fun fun fun, although I think I'll be missing this and instead make a blader *_*

    Actually, the way the game is going ( management / customer service ) in regards to lost cash shop items, rewards not being handed out properly for pre-orders and events, certain aspects of the game being handled client side making it a cheaters wet dream, recent cash shop items being added that lean more towards P2W and of course RNG stats. It's more than just a few things and it all adds up to what continues to be one disaster after another. Hidden changes to the game not mentioned in patch notes and poor communication are also horrible signs of game management. XLGames and Trion did the exact same shit and this game is looking to be following the exact same mistakes. For those wishing to stick it out, I wish you the best of luck, but I've already been through one train wreck called ArcheAge and I'm not doing that again.

    Next!
    sorry but i have to laugh at you..

    exp for horse isnt P2W lol.. how dumb can u be? u dont gain anything by leveling a horse..

    so what if the stats are RNG? just be a better player since 100 hp doesnt make any difference.

    the game isnt even close to dead its still full in the weekdays and weekends.

    the game is awesome and has alot of things you can do and even more coming soon.

    new classes already.

    so just get your really annoying and stupid mentallity out of here

     We knew the horse costume would be in the game, it doesn't stop you from being able to achieve the same horse level as anyone else, it just takes a bit longer. This is not pay to win. Pay to win would be if the game would not let me achieve a certain level unless I buy an item, which it doesn't do. If you have access to the same end result without paying money, you're just crying over spilt milk

    Don't go overboard about those nitpicky things OP. It makes you look ridiculously biased.

    Hodor!

    So strange to pick like the most minor things as key issues.

    The game has much bigger problems  - like server performance, skill cooldown exploits, economy exploits etc...

    20% horse XP costume and stat RNG.... please

    Takes 10% longer, and if you take some time in the game you can easily even that 10% difference one way or the other. And yeah, it's totally not P2W. Only thing you 'win' is that you have a slightly faster chance to breed ans get that T7 horse...
