I know that Black Spirit Adventure (BSA) gives freebies, and I shouldn't complain about what I get. But what I don't like is how the dev fool us into thinking that the chances to get the items on the board are equal (a dice will have an equal chance of showing each of its face). But, in reality, the probability of getting BUFFS and ? (random item) is way too high to be equal. I'm talking about 80%-90% chance of getting them. I'm sure I'm not the only one in the game to notice this.
I can't help but feel dissappointed everytime I got buffs from BSA, coz most of the times, my chara already got max buff already, so I did not gain anything from BSA buffs. The more I play BSA, the more I feel dissappointed and the game become so not fun anymore. So intead of adding more fun in the game, for me, BSA is a blackhole that sucks away those fun.
The same thing also goes to most of the boxes in the game. Dark Rifts boxes, Belonging of Adventurer, Shakatu's boxes, etc etc. The chances to get good items are so low, you will feel dissappointed most of the time because you keep failing to get a good item from those boxes. I bought 10 Shakatu's Shiny boxes last time and they only made me lose the money I invested for them. Please don't say that it's just my luck. I believe there are a lot of players like me in this game. It's because the chance to get something good from those boxes is just so low, not because of my luck. It ain't fun to play the game if you keep being dissapointed like this.
you do know that BDO is an open world gambling game right?
Hope you ARE WELL, miss you on server chats SUPPORTER YZXJogja

TET enhancement especially.

I'm getting used to it now.

@Toffee, thank you for the well wishes! You are a great supporter. PA and us players are so lucky to have you here!
@Likorice, a lot of people feel like us actually, here is a few example from reddit:
@PrawilLucia, yeah, a lot of gambling in this game, but I just hope the dev make the gambling a bit easier for the sake of fun. But I only agree to increase the chances of getting better items in BSA and loot box tho, not enhancement. I think enhancement is very clear already with the percentage of success, if you going to PEN boss gears with 100fs, you know the success chance is only 3.3%. If you fail, you can't blame PA coz they already let you know the success chance. And they make the enhancement chances low for the sake of the game. It makes no sense if everyone can get PEN easily. Same thing for TET as well. I also failed a lot of times but I can accept the fact that I failed and I know the dev have to design it that way.
You served us all too, SUPPORTER YZXJogja
As with Supporter Haywood ,Supporter Love3000... this season we have very very very very little supporters from Indonesia.
Hope that you all will apply for the next one and have fellow friends from the region apply as well.
I have always loved server the chats with you all!
Now? I no longer see such in game helpers.
Hope you all will apply ok?
Yeh... even the SUPPORTER event application is RNG.... those active ones, those who contributed didn't come back.. those who write great tales of promises got selected.
Look at us this season...... Bad call!
Honestly, just don't do it then if you get dissapointed easily.
You have to understand that we aren't entitled to ANY of those items, or any of the items within the loot boxes. The devs aren't dissapointing you, the game isn't dissapointing you. YOU are dissapointing yourself when you expect more that what you actually receive.
Rng is rng, even if you roll the dice a million times, there's a chance you get all of your rolls on a fishing tile or whatever is the crappies reward there is from the black spirit adventure. As long as rng is involved, equal opportunty does not exist, why expect any difference.
Either don't do it or do it with the lowest expectations.
There was a time where black spirit adventure and these rng boxes weren't even in game; how about those people at that time? Are they enitled to the items they otherwise would have gotten if such features were implemented before?
If you want my advise, the only thing you should look forward to, is the memory fragment that is at the end of cycle. That's it. Anything else you get is extra.
As for rng boxes, expect the crappiest ones, a lot of vids out there as well as data on these rng boxes are available. Getting hte good stuff is like less than 5% if i'm not mistaken. While stuff like crons from dark spirit boxes, memory fragments from shukatu etc are more than 50%.

Again, we aren't entitled to these items and if you spent pearls/silver without researching the chances of the rewards then that is on you not the devs
