Players are up in arms following the MMORPG's encroaching "pay-to-win" practices. Guilds have edited their insignias with anti-pay-to-win signs, some even going so far as to threaten a complete blackout next week to express their anger with the game

Black Desert Online players protest 'pay-to-win' changes
Black Desert Online players are protesting all over forums, subreddits, and in-game major cities following a post made yesterday by one of the developer's community managers. The announcement, found here, details how items that can only be obtained by spending real-world money, like special skins, would soon be sellable to other players for in-game currency.

Black Desert Online players protest 'pay-to-win' changes - guilds have edited their insignias
As evidenced above, guilds have edited their insignias with anti-pay-to-win signs, some even going so far as to threaten a complete blackout next week to express their anger with the game. Some of the MMORPG's largest guilds have even set up protests within major in-game cities, flourishing signs declaring "pay-to-win."

Black Desert Online - players protest against pay-to-win features
The game has been under close watch since its debut in North America and Europe this spring, with players wary of an installment of "pay-to-win" practices after the launch of Pearl Shop, an online store that features items that can only be purchased for real-world cash. Given the nature of the reaction to this latest change, it remands a matter of time before Pearl Abyss, Black Desert Online's developers, offer some kind of resolve.
