  1. MaDDaViD123 added a post in a topic BDO on Steam. Let us link our accounts, you owe us that.   

    From reading your points, I do believe you make a couple of good ones.
    Before I delve into them, I'd like to say I preordered the game on the highest tier, and stopped playing a fairly long time ago due to lack of easy access.
    Something I strongly dislike is external clients and not being aware of when updates are. I presume that a steam version would remove this and install with the built in steam features.
    The main reason I stopped playing BDO was due to lack of easy access, I would either open the client to have a long update await me, or when searching for a game to play, I would only browse my steam list. A steam version, would completely negate this. Personally, I don't see why we would need to re-purchase the game on steam if we wanted to play it through steam.
     
    Many other games that were released externally and then rereleased on steam - Read, Factorio and Game Dev Tycoon, both had methods that allowed players to migrate their purchases over to the steam version. I'm actually very dissapointed in the developers, to force players to repurchase a game just to make it more accessible? Sounds like a money grab to me.

    Yeah, Some people may have ordered between 26/02 and 28/02 however, most people have ordered after the 28th.

  3. MaDDaViD123 added a post in a topic I have the pack explorer and does not let me go in this game   

    The game technically launched sunday 28/02.
    Let's use a separate analogy. You are watching a rocket launch. They launch stage one at one point, In reference to BDO This would be the soft launch for the conq pack, then they wait then go into stage 2 of the rocket launch. (explorer pack in BDO) before going to the third stage, (traveller pack) before entering space.
    Saying that the game has not launched until the 3rd is like saying a rocket has not launched until it is in space.

    Really? With all the population in these threads?
    Along with how many of these threads there are?
    That will probably take a while to deal with.

    They are most likely working on a way to stop any further issues. Do you think they have time to reply to EVERY single ticket coming through today due to this debacle?

  6. MaDDaViD123 added a post in a topic The purchase page for Explorers included "Headstart (48hrs)" as late as Sunday morning, the 28th.   

    It's because butthurt people like you, who don't read up on the way the game will launch, that companies get bad names.

    There was no reason for them not to. Right here I agree that this should have been put there straight away,

    Then I thank you for being civilized with all of this, and I hope that this ends in a way that is favourable to the consumer.
     
     
     
     
    Both of the links provided below are easily accessible from the main page.
     
    Please refer to this page: https://www.blackdesertonline.com/news/view/58
    Look at 26.02 This says that the pre-orders are now closed.
    Then please look at this page: https://www.blackdesertonline.com/news/view/64
    "
    The head starts below are only for Pre-Order holders:
    Head start for Conqueror’s package holders starts the 28th of February, 08:00 UTC.
    Head start for Explorer’s package holders starts the 1st of March, 08:00 UTC.
    Head start for Traveler’s package holders start the 2nd of March, 08:00 UTC.
    "
     
    The above if for Pre-Order Holders.
    If you bought the game after the 26th of Februrary you will not be able to play until the 3rd of march.
     
    I do however agree that you should have been notified that you wouldn't have access until the 3rd march.
    But with a small amount of reading, this could all have been avoided.

    I understand that most people do want to buy the game and won't look any further down the page if the order button is right in front of you.
    However, in big bold letters you can plainly  "LATEST NEWS" 
    I understand that nobody wants to sit reading old news articles. But right here, reading two of the articles, Black Desert Online important pre-launch info  and Black Desert Online important pre-launch info all of this could have been avoided.

  10. MaDDaViD123 added a post in a topic misleading and deceptive headstart   

    Of course, if you bought it after the cut-off date, you should have been notified that the pre-order head start bonus had expired. 
    They should have done it differently.
    But what can you say? Hindsight is a ----- huh.

    Yes you did "Research" on the product, but obviously not the way it would be given to you. 
    I will concede that you should have been notified that the pre-order bonus had expired, the blame on that can only be placed on the website creators.
     
    However nothing stopped you from actually reading the news section before making your purchase.

    I will agree that the whole way of handling this is completely awful.
    I do believe that people should have been notified that the would't get access into the game until the 03/03/2016.
    However I also think that people should have read the news articles on the main page.

  13. MaDDaViD123 added a post in a topic misleading and deceptive headstart   

    I'll agree that everything could of been handled a lot better, showing on the pre-order page / order page that you wouldn't have access if you bought after 26/02
     
    However once again, on the main webpage you can see the most recent news articles, and at least one of those articles say that the pre-order cutoff is in fact 26/02.

  14. MaDDaViD123 added a post in a topic explorer's package can't login?   

    The game has essentially already launched/been released. The people who had access of the 28/02/2016 were there since they had access, because it was release.
     
    In fact, they were unable to do pre-order stuff all the way to actual launch due to name reservation. I can't remember the exact wording however.
    Obviously not enough if you didn't see that from multiple places within the website that the pre-orders ended on 26/02
    and that the soft launches for the different packages are for people who PRE-ORDERed the game.

    If you are going to buy a product without doing detailed research into it, through the webpage and elsewhere, then expect to get something that isn't what you originally expect.
