    Because kids are kids
    And though i certainly do not agree with them, I also dont understand why people dont use level 49 locked alts as their horse trainers and/or fishers, then theyll have to find some other way to be childish and unsociable.  We have 7 to 12 alts (plus a main) each, make good use of them, they can be more than just energy storage.
    Basically you can only be bullied this way if you allow it by using a 50+ character

    The New Forums
    Im a little confused, i visited there for the first time today, it asks me to register but when i click to register it takes me to main website, and of course i have already registered through main website for these forums, yet when i try to login using my current info, it rejects me
    So is it a fresh registration? Or is it the same and im simply getting my password wrong? (which wouldnt surprise me since ive been logged in since i first registered and havent had to type my password except that first time)

    Netflix is for people who dont know what torrent sites are.  Having the internet and not using torrents, is like buying a nice car then taking a taxi everywhere

  5. Isty added a post in a topic Patch Notes - April 5th 2017   

    I wasnt very clear, my apologies.
    My objection isnt to the quality of the screenshots, my objection is to them replacing the map.
    Each day i play at least 5-7 of my characters, and i switch between them even more than just once each, in fact doing a rough calculation in my head right now i would estimate that i switch possibly 50-75 times a day (it can vary of course, sometimes i spend a lot of time combat grinding one char, other times i regularly switch between several - for example last few days ive been doing a circuit of mineral harvesting, then switching to an alt who is tending a farm of crops, then back, another circuit of minerals and back again to the farm, etc.)  There is also the beer and petfood alt who i switch to, to recharge pet health and workers, and many other reasons to switch between my 5 harvester characters, 3 combat characters, then theres building failstacks, yet more switching, so actually could be higher than my estimate.
    And during all this switching i like to see the map because it swows me while im loding in where this particular alt is currently located, and reminds me of other things like quests they havent done yet (because of the yellow squares with the ! in them across the map etc). And frankly this map/loading screen is something i like about this game.   What i really dont want to see is the same 3 or 4 screenshots 75 times a day, even if i only see them for a second or so each time
    All that aside - just so you know i did read your post - i did see the many objections to the watermark, and im still not convinced thats what people are really upset about,  but its just as likely you cant see why i'd be upset about the removal of the map for screenshots, we are all different and have different tastes, but me, ive only taken aobut 5 screenshots in over a year of playing, and that was the 5 i took for the dark knight forum (which i whttled down to 1) "post your dark knight pics here" thread.
    And the problem with "them actually picking the pretty pictures" is that "pretty" is subjective, it varies from you to me, and to everyone else, if you need proof of that just look at any of the forums "post your character here" threads.  Genuinely ive only liked one of the screenshots that ive seen, and that one was so good (imho) that i can still see every detail of it in my minds-eye, that was from the Magoria set, but the other 3 or so were so boring and uninspiring they made me ... hmm not angry exactly, but they certainly annoyed me, specially for the 25th time that day
    Any-who, whether or not i, you or anybody else love or hate the screenshots has no bearing on my request, which is to give us the ability to opt out of seeing them.  Everyone can win, those who want to see them can, and those who dont wish to see them can bypass them and stick with the map.    I just want my map... me wuv Mappy mkay

  6. Isty added a post in a topic Patch Notes - April 5th 2017   

    I actually dont mind the patch, seems ok to me, i keep re-reading the notes to see what exactly is pissing people off, because it cant simply be the watermarks can it?    To me it seems neither outstandingly great, nor devastatingly bad.
    That being said....
    Thanks once more for saving me money
    You continue releasing those "costumes" (less than 4-piece clothing) instead of releasing "outfits" (4-piece clothing) and i will continue not to buy any.     If i cant mix n match them, then i wont be buying them, so seriously, a big and sincere heartfelt thank you for once again saving my hard earned cash for something other than your company
    You probably dont give a shit about this (and im damn sure no one else does) but ive gone from being a £50 a month player to playing for free, great for my pockets, terrible as a business model.
    Also if youre going to bombard our loading screens with people's shitty screenshots again soon (because youre doing yet another needless screenshot competition) can you PLEASE first implement an on/off thingy in settings so we can keep the default map as our loading screen, thanks!

  7. Isty added a post in a topic Worker promotion question   

    2 things influence success during promotion, - level of the worker and level of the city node where they live.  Only about 1 in every 10 of my yellow workers actually fail all 3 tests and believe it or not people still buy a lvl 30 yellow with no promotion chance
    I have 5-10 yellow workers at most times and 80-90 orange workers always, and i sell some lvl 30's every month.  I do this not for the money, though an extra few mil a month is a nice little bonus, i do it because it basically costs me nothing, and puts a few workers on the market every month for those who would rather buy them.

  8. Isty added a post in a topic How come no one sells craftable costumes in the MP?   

    Im pretty sure its negative profit (though i havent tried to craft every single one) but im fairly certain the mats and the "pattern" (or whatever its called - the plan that you buy from a npc as one of the ingredients) added together comes to about 50% more than the price you can list them for, example its costs 750k to make them but can only sell for 500k  (im going from memory and have pulled those number out of my arse, but you get the point). 
    But i mostly just made the Ruby outfits for each char, partly for the titles, partly so they can all play amity games easier, the other costumes could be way different

  9. Isty added a post in a topic Skeletons in Mediah?   

    Damn good xp too at SG, i went there sunday because of all the morons fighting for scraps at Sausans.   I found absolutely nobody fighting there and it seemed my xp flowed in far faster than it ever has at Sausans, plus i got all the "boss" mobs to myself too, it made for a great afternoon of xp and loot and best of all i didnt have to waste time pvp-ing to contest the spawn
    I mean no its rubbish, no point even going to have a look there

  10. Isty added a post in a topic Crescent Roulet going for 2 TRI :) With an great follow up. (I hope it helps some of u getting TRI crescent rings).   

    Ive always wanted to ask, but held back for fear of trolling americans, but now m going to ask;
    You guys talking about all these "billions" youve spent, do you mean real billions as defined by (almost) the entire world (including american scientists and mathemticians) or do you mean those fake billions as defined by most everyday american speech?
    Clarification for those that need it. 
    Real billions are the result of multiplying 1 million by 1 million (results in 12 noughts aka 1,000,000,000,000, or 10 to the power of 12, or 1 million to the power of 2 (bi), real name 1 billion)Fake billions is what you get when you multiply 1 million by 1 thousand (results in 9 noughts aka 1,000,000,000, or 10 to the power of 9, real name 1 milliard), only a tenth of a billion. 
    I dont usually like derailing a thread but since all this thread is doing is allowing some people to display their engorged hind-quarters while others give them a reacharound, i dont see the harm, and i genuinely want to know.   If i put this question in its own thread, as ive often wanted to people would no doubt tell me "it has nothing to do with BDO, wrong forum", but enough people here are mentioning billions for me to ask.     Its a Korean game run by a European company (both these peoples use real billions), but the forum is also used by Americans who use their own system.  Since americans are (globally speaking) the minority here i assume we all use real billions yes? Or are some of us using one system while some use another?

  11. Isty added a post in a topic BDO Datamined DP stats - Just show us AP, DP, Evasion and ACC on char sheet   

    When will they get around to data mining the other  armour sets? or other accessory items?
    It can hardly be thought of as conclusive til we cancompare every single item, oh im sure they didnt bother with the one-gem-slot armours because the cool kids dont use them, but isnt it likely that the evil devs gave the 1-slot stuff the best hidden stats?  Likely or not we dont know because the dataminers did a halfassed job and just assumed they werent worth checking

  13. Isty added a post in a topic What does give max Energy?   

    As an addition to the above replies
    You gain +1 Energy when you have half of the knowledge in each section, and the full listed amount when you have them all
    Example: - A section called NPCs of Exampleville 0/4, containing 10 NPCs will give you 1 max energy when youve spoken to 5 of them, and the remaining 3 max energy when youve spoken to all 10, it will then read NPCs of Exampleville 4/4.
    EDIT: Regarding your TL:DR, its a bad example as the knowledge from recipes doesnt actually grant any energy, when you look in knowledge (H) under Lifeskills youll see no 0/2, 0/4 etc, therefore this section (and any like it) grant no energy (no numbers = no energy). 
    The sections that do grant energy are Character, Topography, Ocean, Ecology, Adventure Journal and Academics.  The sections that do not grant energy are Lifeskill, Learning The Ropes Of Black Desert and Trade

  14. Isty added a post in a topic Is putting PVP behind a PVE grind wall a good idea?   

    Didnt want to derail, but youve had an incomplete answer so heres the full one -
    At 49.999 you will be given a quest to kill a Fat Catfishman (whose name is Quoobe i think, that name is in the quest name), you can do this quest, but once you hand it in you will be a big boy and able to be attacked.   For anyone to attack another person they must flag themselves for pvp (turns their name red, i tihkn you press Alt+C - ive never flagged so not certain) then they can attack players, once flagged anyone can attack them, if a blue name player dies there is no penalty, if a red name player dies there is a penalty, which varies from region to region.  You may choose not to complete this quest in which case youll be 49.999 forever (you may gain skillpoints but not levels).
    I dont have much to add on topic, but to try and not leave the thread in a state of derailment -
    Is putting PVP behind a PVE grind wall a good idea?  Probably not but it is how 99% of MMOs seem to do it, of course they dont also put it behind a RNG wall

    56 is where im staying until they raise the softcap again.  I'll be fine with this just as i was fine staying 50 until they raised it.
    Chasing 60 with the caps set to hard-grind-mode is a young man's game, you can all run full pelt up the mountain, i prefer to walk.
