I'm still going to buy it, more so because I'm fascinated by the character customization and how dazzling it looks I'd like to experience the quality of this game for myself rather then watch someone play it on twitch or even see videos on youtube; that being said this would probably be the only b2p game I have ever purchased, and i don't see the potential that it would likely be a waste if I can satisfy my curiosity.

I think a b2p isn't bad. It will reduce the amount of gold spammers in the economy, because there is more at stake when you have to pay money in order to make an account. All these people that complain about Black Dessert going b2p are the same people that will complain about all the spam on the f2p servers.

Seeing BDO does not have a healing class and is potion spam central I never had much interest in it. Now that it is going B2P I will have to give this one a pass completely.

Guess you have to stop reporting on it now, since it's no longer f2p

I think BDO is doing B2P Model for a cash grab before switching to f2p so they can get a nice lump of money before switching to f2p which is sad to do the community like that when it is allready f2p in other regions and I have no problem supporting games but i dont think im up for supporting something of this nature

more reasons to play B&S EU/NA anyone wants to play BDO will go to russian,japanease or korean servers its bad news for black desert

Worry not, they will try to milk as much as they can with the B2P model and moderate cash shop... Then it will switch to F2P one year later or so, to recover part of the playerbase lost, with P2W crap like any other eastern MMO.
Unluckily I think that I can count F2P titles with a fair cash shop on the fingers of one hand... And none of them are MMOs.

Russian f2p has p2w crap. Like allods opening up a sub server, black desert is offering a paid version to get rid of p2w. I support this and pre order. And thank god tons of poor people on dial up wont be in this OB causing server crashes :). Rich people server crashes are better. Like in vanilla wow, we know invested and will meet up when stable. Not just here to show up. Play 5 min. Quit and cry. I.e. F2p crowd.

Is review bombing ever ok? Yeah, it can be abused, but can it be used for good, too?
