    That's generally what prevents it.
    Legalities.
    To put it simply...
    This wouldn't be the first time i've seen a foreign based company prohibited from placing this type of security on end users.

    the beta forums have ssl applied to it, everything here but the posting itself uses ssl (including logging in to your forum account)
    its probably an issue with ipb which prevents it from being forum wide (hence maybe the push to swap to the new forum?)

    I'll give the NA/EU team the benefit of the doubt, maybe their licensing prohibits those alterations.

    Its not
     
    In other news,
    -No account password reset
    -No clue what "3rd party" it might be
    -everyone freaking out
    yaaaay, A+ job on handling the situation kakao,
    Step-by-step plan for next time:
    1. reset affected accounts first.
    2. Investigate the issue quickly
    3. Release a proper statement as to where you think the flaw is, and what has been obtained (e.g only usernames? emails? hashed passwords? etc.)
    4. Do a deep investigation into the issue and keep your player base up-to-speed as to what's happening and what you're currently doing to resolve the issue.

  16. The_Lord added a post in a topic Game... Objective?   

    it's an mmo ... you have to spend hundreds of hours from day one to be able to reach '' end game '' and be competetive in pvp just like most games out there, idk why you are playing mmos if you complain about that. It's not your typical mmo, it's more of a sandbox game and you do whatever you want to do , the game doesn't hold your hand and i agree it does a terrible job at explaining to you all the content and mechanics that this game has to offer but it's not just grinding , you want to grind for lvls and it's really good money of course but in this game you have to do life skills and try to pick and chose what you like and enjoy , you can't do everything because there is just too much and if you only grind you will get tired of it really fast.
    The game doesn't really start until you are 56 and get your awakening weapon , then you can really start to gear up and set up your node empire, hire worker start focusing on life skills and set up a passive income. When you have decent gear enough you gonna want to start doing world bosses as much as you can which will give you good loot for money and a chance to get boss gear. Try to join a guild and when you reach lvl 57-58 ( you can even at 56 if you really want to ) with decent gear you can start participating in node wars which is a lot of fun. Basically the leveling process and gearing process is a lot of grinding yes but you also get to pvp with people around your level and gear score to fight over grind spots, you can always take a break and go to the arena outside of towns to do some duels and practice, even with low gear you can ask other players to remove some gear to match your ap/dp. So you want to grind as much as you can but you have to take some breaks and do some pvp/life skilling/ world bosses etc, to keep you entertained. Just keep in mind this game is a marathon.

    Lol'd.
    tfw you don't know what ssl is but you bring it up as if you do
    It is 100% to do with pearl abyss(Black Desert Developers).
    There are also different laws regarding any http encryption & client sided security in russia, than in EU and NA.
    Not to say those laws are the reason we don't have it implemented, because i don't know. I just know the laws. Lol.

    I've just finished up a nodewar on the node Altinova Gateway to find a guild using this absolutely bullshit location. PA specifically design the Node War Grid to ensure that most locations like this are unusable, but it seems they missed a spot here. Please spread this far and wide so it's fixed!

    This thread is a great example why you should never try to sell a product to an intelligent consumer group.
     
    If you are honest, they hate you.
    Dishonest, they can tell and hate you.
    Vague, they think you think they are dumb and hate you.

    Maybe you should finally enable SSL here because posting about security while forums are not secured doesn't look serious at all.
     
    Has nothing to do with the devs. RU publisher has done it on their own but they are competent and take account security seriously.

    You can use an Ultimate Reform Stone to get a yellow weapon/armor from a green or blue weapon/armor. 
    You use blackstones (weapon/armor) to upgrade accordingly 
    Gold boss items and accessories are gold off the bat and cannot be upgraded to, but their level can be upgraded.
