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

    What does that "like" even mean is a fair question.  What that specific "like" means is, I asked CM Aethon to reply back to the thread explaining that client side data is only a portion of the equation which in turn can be misleading or even outdated.  When someone digs through the client files they are bound to see all kinds of information, files, images etc, the issue with this process is the sheer one sided nature.  I can say I admire the tenacity shown for this discussion, and I am sure it will be interesting to see what other discoveries are made.  That being said we do not have any additional insight to offer you in reference to the game's statistical calculations, instead you are urged to take anything you read from non-official sources with a grain of salt.
    Now that that is out of the way, I have to agree I am not as active on the forums as I once was, although I still read them daily.  As always it is a pleasure to see such lively discussions, the forums are still without a doubt the most contested grinding spot.

    Definitely not dead, nor am I removing threads that adhere to the forum rules that every user agreed to when they made their account. At this stage I am taking time to read what everyone has to say, both here on the forums, Reddit, and the recent slew of e-mails I have received.  As you can imagine there is no shortage of such reading material, and once I have caught up, I will continue to do what I have always done; present your communications to all others involved.
    That being said I will get back to work now, and as soon as I am given an update to share, I will be here to share it.

    [Updated] In-Game accessibility to Pearl Shop Items
    Greetings Adventurers,
    Today we are writing you to provide insight into a new mechanic you can expect to see next week, following the normally scheduled maintenance. As many of you are aware, the Value Package was recently introduced to our Pearl Store. After detailed discussions with the Developers at Pearl Abyss, it has been decided that the Value Pack as well as other Pearl Shop Items will be made available via the Market Place over the next series of updates. 
    - Players might be allowed to register maximum of 5 Pearl Shop Items per week on the Market Place.
    We understand that this change will spark discussions, and have asked Pearl Abyss to share their thoughts behind this decision.
    Pearl Abyss considers in-game accessibility to Pearl Items necessary in Black Desert.
    Regardless of the region, there will always be players who, for whatever reason, do not get to experience all the features Black Desert offers including Pearl Shop Items. Adding a mechanic that grants access to Pearl Shop Items with in game currency will allow more players to enjoy such content more easily.
    For the same reason, the players of other regions like Korea, Japan and Russia are preferring those features since it allows them better accessibility to Pearl Shop Items.
    We are open to the community’s feedback and we encourage you to share your thoughts and concerns in a constructive manner on this change.  
     
    NOTE: The previous announcement has been polished in order to deliver and clarify the intention better.

  11. PM_Jouska added a post in a topic sad truth about end game and RNG (read especially if you're new!)   

    Fair enough point, there is no way to dispute a persons beliefs, as such things are completely subjective.  With that in mind I will stick to what the creators of the game have told us, and leave the rest to more philosophical minds than myself.

    Thank you for the solid write-up and feedback, it is always good to see the game from other players experiences.  I will reiterate that there is no mechanic or code within the game that makes one character/player/account more lucky than another.  However I too have meet people who seem to simply have that Midas touch (in and out of game), unfortunately I have not convinced any of them to go in half way with me on a few lottery tickets.
