I don't think BD is the problem. Just to be clear though, despite supporting the existence of BD, i've never been there myself. My first was earlier today and was kicked from the party 'cause i don't know what the hell im supposed to do xD I've been roaming the map from lvl 1 to lvl 47, and only doing my first BD earlier today (which i doubt i will do again if not for the Leon equips), and the problem i often face is raiders and the low EXP gain. Being constantly raided by consuls and MAUs means i lose so much time that i could have getting exp and farm. I've had more than 50 deaths (by PK) my entire phase in Sette. Being delayed so long in levels and farm means i can't stand up for myself when being raided, and can't even participate in CW, or be of good use (cant even survive the STCs). I don't think it's fair to say that BD makes people lazy because the people i see who camp in HQ looking to BD are also the same people i see who participate in CW at least 2/3 times per day. Keep BD, let them power level until they reach the point where they can match up to the higher level people. But find a way to make them want to engage other races too. Maybe a party quest like "Eliminate this many (race) with level between so on and so forth". Maybe give a prize for PK (gold, exp, etc - depending on level gaps, so you don't get rewards for PKing lowbies). AND INCREASE THE REWARDS FOR CW. What i've noticed (in Valkyrie at least) is that there is very little participation in CW. Maybe an increased reward could make people participate because CW is the only reason i keep coming back to HELL, you can even close the BD during CW!
