  1. CM_Aethon added a post in a topic [Notice ] Known Issues Feb. 22 - 2017 [Updated]   

    Please view the now updated response in the original post, I have attempted to explain in greater detail the changes that were applied. I understand there has been some confusion over this change, I  really... understand guys, much of the morning has been dedicated to this particular change.
    Thank you I will also pass it along from my end to be looked at.
    If you are still experiencing an issue it is likely something that will need to be resolved via customer support, as to my knowledge the change was applied and is now fixed.

  2. CM_Aethon added a post in a topic BDO Account I can have? :)   

    I'm sure the intention behind this was innocent enough, but this is in fact a violation of our ToU and as such I will be locking the thread. There is a thread dedicated to folks handing out guest passes here: http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/32751-guest-passes-main-topic-all-post-here/&page=98 Many of them are quite new, with more added on a regular basis so give that a shot.

  3. CM_Aethon added a post in a topic Valentines Event Bug   

    At this time the event is now complete, while I understand it some folks were hoping to squeeze one last vote in before the end, if they were not in by the time we'd gone into maintenance they can no longer be counted. Additionally the participation prizes have already been tallied and distributed, and the grand prize winners announced.
    Fortunately there will be plenty of new events in the future, so keep an eye out on the forums for the latest game news!

    Can confirm it is not an exploit, and can be purchased via the night vendor.

  7. CM_Aethon added a post in a topic BDO Datamined DP stats   

    Greetings All,
    While it's certainly an interesting read, older versions of the client did contain trace amounts of information related to some item values that were occasionally referenced by the community. We understand many enthusiastic individuals will continue to try and reference this material for game information, however we caution folks when reading into this as the information is heavily outdated and most likely no longer correct.

  8. CM_Aethon added a post in a topic Is crafting crates too profitable and should be nerfed?   

    While it is great to want to debate and potentially attempt to refute the claims of another user, we ask that you avoid creating threads that would be better suited as a response to their original topic. In the event the original topic is closed or nor longer available you may wish to bring it up again (barring that it was closed because the original topic was in violation of our forum rules).
    In addition to this, if folks would like to debate something specifically with another user we do have a private message function where you can hold discussions that would be better suited for a one on one conversation. As this thread is largely consisting of the above, while also a thinly veiled attempt to instigate personal attacks I'm going to go ahead and close it.

    As soon as I get done voicing them, but seriously I do not have any update on that. It may well be a while.

  11. CM_Aethon added a post in a topic MISSING Valentines Rewards!!!   

    This issue should now be resolved, if you are still having problems please contact me directly via PM. Also to clarify, the only requirement was to have a minimum of "x" number of votes, there were no specifics as to how many NPC's or if they were all to the same NPC for the participation reward.

    I can ask, but just so we're clear the answer is likely going to be a resounding, No.

  14. CM_Aethon added a post in a topic Patch Notes - February 22nd 2017 [Updated]   

    1. Looking into it, currently I believe it is working as intended, however I will see if I can get some additional clarification on the wording.
    It appears I was incorrect and we will be applying a fix for the remaining flutes tomorrow during the urgent maintenance.
    2. We're addressing this in a hotfix tomorrow (2/23/2017)
    3. The event will start at the typical reset tonight, apologies for any confusion.
    Same as #2 above but you can find any additional information here: http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/132441-notice-known-issues-feb-22-2017/

    Typically this is due to no additional information to share at this time, once this changes we will be sure to let folks know.
