  1. Zelxski added a post in a topic BDO on Steam? Nah.   

    I just assumed they didn't allow us to connect to steam due to the EMAIL change. Players can't just change email accounts easily, and if your facebook email does not match you cannot connect the account. I just assumed steam did not offer anything to prevent players from changing emails so easily and so they decided not to allow the sides to connect. Maybe in the future they will change their minds or figure something out.

  3. Shirolicious added a post in a topic How to reduce network lag in BDO? (dysnc delays etc) Here's the best answer.   

    I'm actually surprized disabling Nagles Algoritm would "improve" your gaming experience. As its purpose is to improve TCP/IP efficiency by bundling TCP packets together and send at once instead of sending TCP packets one by one. Also changing TCP Acknowledge frequency could easily lead to more packet loss instead of reducing it. 
    I am curious to know why disabling Nagles Algoritm would be better for gaming? Whoever made that post seems to know quite a bit about L3 networking.
    I know a bit as well but not to this extend. Would be happy to learn a few things

  7. MononokeZ added a post in a topic Tired of server problems?   

    I really like bdo but for people with lower quality internet and living rather far from the NA server (east coast) this is hell plane and simple I get lagged allot like if I could see my lag it will be like 250ms. Now if you think that's just my net your wrong I have had good days where my Ms may be around 150-120 or even 80ms (which is what I avarage in most games) and my game more fun my fps are better my damage latency which is so damning that anyone who experience it knows how dreadful it is when you hot a target and your damage is late or worst is 0 because you actually didn't hit them, I know for a fact that it's not my side but there's because I can play some very fast pace games like overwatch or warframe or elsword blade and soul even co-op killing floor and this lag is not even present and o get 80-100ms which is green Ms in black Desert only it's almost cringe worthy how bad the lag is

    This has been fixed, possibly with yesterday's maintenance since there were other character creation changes involved. Happy to finally be rid of that giraffe neck.

  22. Ein Zwei Drei added a post in a topic [PVX PVP Oriented] JackOFAllTrades Recruiting Active N Social Players!   

    Hi i am a player trying to come back to BDO and am seeking a Clan\Guild to join 
    Only problem is I am not very social-able  well in RL I am Very Unsocial-able but on Pc I am more easy going but still I am not well up to date on what most people are talking about so i go quite.
    as long as that is cool i am seeking a guild to play with on all aspect of the game.
    my gear ain't that great and i am only lvl 55. 
    also my PC ain't that good so i usually go to the local Computer Gaming Store where they got kick ass PC's to Use. only when needed like war's or event's guild needs us for.

  24. Greys0n added a post in a topic Please Help! 'File Corrupt' is back!!   

    I suggest to try disk drill. It's a great word document data recovery tool + it can recover music, photos, videos etc https://www.cleverfiles.com/word-excel-recovery.html . It uses a variety of techniques to find or reconstruct files that were lost or accidentally deleted, and is successful in many cases. You can even preview these files so that you can determine which ones can be successfully recovered.
