  3. Post on Bad guilders in General

    By Sophia, posted
    So I was in a guild which was so nice, since they were just for PVE, they didnt swear, and never talked about sex as all the others. I helped in anything I could, I was super friendly and kind, but they started bullying me... they started saying I'm a boy and then making fun of me saying *hug*. Which made me cry in real life. So I decided to be alone by myself forever. I don't want to be in any guild ever again.

  5. Post on Change the Ninja Ulti in Ninja

    By Djarnis, posted
    Could you guys please change the Ninja's ulti. It takes way to long to complete the combo and does very bad dmg and locks you in a position where you probably end up dead if farming at Crescent shrine or in a pvp situation.
    3 suggestions for change:
    1. Increase the completion time
    2. Increase the dmg output and apply super armor
    3. Add a cancel to it besides using V
  6. Hallo! Ich bin Stocksauer gerade! Ich habe mir das 30€ Paket von Black Desert gekauft. Habe es installiert, geupdatet und mal kurz angespielt. Ich habe einen Gaming-Pc der GTA V und Metal gear solid auf Ultra packt. Wieso schafft mein PC aufeinmal denn Black Desert garnicht? Die fps sinken bis 17! Höchstens sind sie 30. habe alles ausprobiert. Grafikeinstellungen runter geschraubt usw. Außerdem sieht das spiel bei mir ETWAS anders aus als wie in den Videos in Youtube. Wieso hängt das spiel bei mir?? Ich habe wirklich alles getan. Effekte meiner mitspieler abgestellt usw, alles auf niedrig. Bringt alles GAR NICHTS! Ich habe es sogar von GeForce optimieren lassen und da liefs nichtmal mit einer Minecraft vergleichbaren Grafik. Bitte helft mir. Ich habe Hoffnung in dem Spiel. Immernoch. Aber wieso kackt das bei mir so ab?? Sry wenn ich etwas sauer klinge aber sowas macht jemanden nicht gerade glücklich!
  7. Due to the Motherlover event quest, players will not be able to continue the story quest 

    because of this: Claire Arryn does not have the quest, and when speaking to her it's just regular npc dialogue

    please fix it thanks.

    Black Desert Online Review

    Black Desert Online, there is not a lot to say about a game that appears to be vast and deep but in reality very small.

    Like many sandbox MMORPGS, the game allows the player to explore a vast and highly texturize world where there are big cities, monsters and nature. But unlike other MMORPGS, the story department is terrible. From the uninteresting story of a dark spirit that possesses you or the poor voice acting that makes players feel they are being lectured in a lecture hall. It feels like the player is already at the end game where their job is to grind out their progression bars until they drop dead.

    Like I always say, the bigger the game, the bigger the story has to be. Players like to compare Black Desert Online to games like Skyrim, the Witcher 3, or Final Fantasy but with more players. That is false. In each of these games, the story department was the reason why players enjoyed those games, learning about a world that was crafted not just by pretty textures, but through good story telling and writing.

    Now do not get me wrong, Black Desert Online has many good improvements that many MMORPGS should take and learn. For example, the character customization is very refreshing and allows players to spend lots of time or not (if they decide to use default pre-sets) to shape their gameplay. Then there is the combat which is a mix between strategic and fast moving mechanics. Aiming your skills like Smite, Tera, and Archeage have not changed but careful positioning and slower combat movement allows for tactical thinking instead of button mashing. Because if a player decides to mash their buttons, they will not be able to block, counter, or chain combos effectively. (Well done)

    But once a player exits outside these two features, the game becomes an overrated Runescape, from woodcutting, fishing, alchemy, cooking and all the other crafting skills. None of them are useful and integrated, they are just there to make the game appear bigger. During the good old days of Runescape, crafting was tied towards accessing future quests, unlocking certain gear and contributed towards area progression (you literally cannot access this area if your crafting level was too low).

    But what makes Black Desert Online even more horrifying is their neglect that MMORPGS are not built to be AFK (Away from Keyboard) but a game where players can interact. If we take a good look at most of the features outside of guilds, sieges and open world PvP there is little interaction between other players. It appears there are many players in the world, but NONE of them actually interact (except if your in a guild or have friends.)

    Players do their own thing and have no need to interact with others. Now do not mistake my idea of interaction like forcing players to work together in groups to kill monsters or do dungeons. Interaction comes in many forms, such as talking, communication and the small talk that happens when players log into the game.

    Let’s look back at the days when Runescape was popular, players talked during their crafting secessions, when players were wood cutting they were all grouped around a single or dozens of trees during the moments of pause, players would interact about the game, life, or other unrelated stuff. This made crafting fun. It was not mining ore in a certain area for three hours fun, it was the people who talked about many different things, from politics, food, traveling, life and small other things that made it fun. In Black Desert Online (and there are many other games) players need to walk to each individual tree, ore, soil and etc to get their job done. No where do they have the time to sit and just simply talk to other players during this procession (if you exclude fishing.) The task is quick and the player must move to another to maximize the efficiently of their gathering.

    This is the problem about highly interactive games where the player does not have time to leave their hands off their mice or keyboard, there is LESS interaction with other players. What is the point of a MMORPG if interaction with other players is placed on the back seat? Are players forced to join guilds to actually interact? And even then few players actually interact within guilds outside of game related crap. Have players changed to a point where small talk has become dead in MMOs?

    However, Black Desert Online did take many other elements from other games. The relationship system that was introduced by Age of Wushu made its way in, where players can build relationships with other NPCs and in the future they might reward the players with quests or items. The monster book from Atlantica Online is back where players can kill monster’s multiple times and receive a rank that will help them fight monsters in certain areas. Trading from different cities has been fleshed out from Atlantica Online, where players can purchase or get items from a different town and sell them to another. We also see trading caravans from Silk Road Online, but not to the extend of raiding parities that existed but it is there.

    But those improvements and additions to the game still do not make the game any better. Outside of the poorly written quests, a player has to find their own motivation to play. However, if you never read in a MMO then your playing the game wrong. Many players skip game text like the plague and then become burnt out from grinding, only to find themselves never knowing anything about the game. That is their own problem. But the quest text is just awful, many quests begin with the simple following structure:

    “Oh nice to meet you, we got a problem, can you help us?”

    [Select R to continue]

    “Great, there are X monsters that have been causing trouble, can you deal with them?” or if it is not a monster hunting quest, “Can you investigate or deliver X item to NPC Y?”

    [Sure, I will do that.]

    [Finishes quest and receives an uninteresting cut scene about black spirits invading the land]

    I think we all watched movies within our lives, and we know when a movie is bad to the point we just do not want to watch them anymore, Black Desert Online quests are just that, a poorly made movie that players have to find the motivation to finish. It is uninteresting and lackluster. [Who this writer?]

    To look back at games that done questing properly, we can see World of Warcraft, Aion or the recent Blade and Soul that made questing actually enjoyable. From memorable characters, to funny comic relief, both games introduce a variety of well written and interesting quests that not only make the game fun but teach players how to become a better person.

    Take a look at one of the beginner quests in Aion playing as an Asomidian.


    In the Quest of the Lost Axe, players are given a simple kill quest to recover a journal that belonged to a thief. From the outset, it appears it is just a normal thief stealing from the rich and you uncover his lost axe. However, after deep reading and questing the player eventually finds out that the thief is not a normal thief by a robin hood type character and stole from the rich and gave money to the poor. Then the player assumes this is just a Robin Hood rehashed into the Aion world, true but with a twist. The player soon continues the quest and finds themselves in an impressive story where the player is taught childhood fairy tales of greed.

    The thief threw the stolen axe into the pond and an Asmodian god appears, after apologizing for distributing him, the god presents the theft with a golden axe instead of the normal one he threw, the thief declines and says that was not the axe, again the god goes back down to the pond and presents the thief with a silver axe, again the thief declines and says that was not the axe he wanted. Finally, the god presents the thief with an iron axe, and that was the one he wanted. From that point forward, the god said to take all three axes because he claimed the thief was the “last honest Asmodian in the land.” From that day forward, the thief sold the axes and opened a thieving guild that trained young thieves to steal from the rich and give to the poor.

    Now compare that to the majority of the quests in Black Desert Online, where have I read a good quest. Outside of the structure I presented.

    But like most MMOs, music also plays an improtant role in communicating the world to the player. Unlike other MMOs, the music is not as great as I thought, sometimes music makes you more bored than the gameplay itself. It is like sitting in a Soap Opera and forces the player to turn off the music and listen to their own.
    For example, lets compare the combat music of Black Desert Online to other games.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n5ElerrN900 World of Warcraft
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JHRO7icWa3Q Aion
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVn71KPFy-8&index=64&list=PLkUt7ryvyfYOK3vaHRqit27iPI2_ZLrmh Age of Wushu
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfpE68Xqt34&index=17&list=PLv8OBSOnVLBWIM1a8ak5dpDUQ_pA2ZJI_ Blade and Soul
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHITVV4sTrM Black Desert Online
    Notice the difference? In all the other games, music motivates the player to fight, it is not this Soap Opera nonsense that has to match the theme of the game.
    So outside of the PvP combat, highly texturized world, and character customization Black Desert Online is an unfinished game. It appears big and vast to novice players but to seasoned MMO players this game will get boring very quickly from its lack of interaction of players, poorly written quests, and under developed crafting system compared to older games like Runescape.

    In the end, Black Desert Online receives a 6.5/10.

  9. Post on Bad graphics?? in General

    By Asentrix, posted
    Demo of jagged graphics - https://vimeo.com/160988750
    So I recently purchased the game , I got drawn in by the beautiful graphics and awesome gameplay
    Anyways , shortly after creating my account / character and logging in for the first time , I noticed how absolutely crap the graphics look for me?
    I've read at least 30 posts from other players stating the exact same thing as me , horrible graphics , max settings etc
    I've tried numerous fixes , made sure upscaling is disabled , forced FXAA anti aliaising on Geforce panel etc, absolutely nothing seems to work

    My GPU is fine , running a 760 OC edition (Run Far cry on ultra at 40 FPS etc) , I don't have any FPS problems or spikes
    Bushes , trees etc look like absolute crap and ground textures look extremely squashed
    What can I do to fix this problem?
    I don't want to sound selfish but I bought BDO mainly because of the visuals and I want my moneys worth
    Comparison for those who say 'Herp derp it looks fine'
    What it looks like for me

    What it looks like for others at the same settings

    Will be adding more comparison shots tomorrow and possibly a video, please help!
  10. it's a game concept often found in Asian games, last I encountered it was in Age of Wulin. You could play a bandit, or a criminal, or assassin, or whatever you want to call your illegal activity, the guards would chase you in towns and so on, but from a role play perspective, you really could pay "the bad guy". Pirates in Arch Age was a simillar concept I think though I never played it.
    I'm yet to reach a high enough level to pvp, but I've been reading guides and forums and it seems that if you lose karma, you can drop items or enchants on death, respawn ramdomly, some NPC refuse to speak to you and so on. I don't really mind that, if there's an upside...
    So my question is, what's the upside? Is there anything at all in the game that might make, for some twisted "bad" -----s, it worth going full out "bad boy" (so to speak)?
    Is there any positive or at least interesting thing about losing karma?
    EDIT -> (example) I read somewhere about an outlaw town called Mui Kuhn, though I'm guessing that's not implemented will maybe be implemented in future?

  12. Post on BDO and an old PC in Off-Topic

    By Brutus, posted
    Hello. I'm not sure where to post my question soo heeeere
    I'd love to play a game. Collecting money for a new PC will take years for me. Is there any chance that BDO would work fine enough on my old one?

    AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5200+ 2.70 GHz
    4 GB RAM
    NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT
    Windows 7
  13. So, I love everything about this game, except two things. The lack of dungeons or any real thing pve wise to do that isn't just killing the same mobs somewhere else (fields, caves, etc.). And while the seamless non-instanced world is impressive it leaves much to be desired when my friends want something to do other than the thing they just did (killing mobs in a field). And by that I mean kill more stuff of course (I know of the other stuff you can do in BDO) but in a different and more rewarding manner than just the same grinding in a field.
    My biggest issue however, is the open world bosses
    This is just embarrassing. I can't spread the good word of BDO with such a bad display as this. There is no strategy, nothing to plan against, its all mindless. This is terrible. Did PA ever address open world bosses and mention anything about improving them in any way? I mean more than just giving the bosses better stats. How about better attacks? Attacks you have to plan on countering and/or avoid? Anything at all? I just really can't see this as part of PA's vision. Or anyone's vision really, on how good open world boss design looks.
  14. Hello everyone
    I wont say much
    World chat costing 1 vigor point which is not really the best solution for gold sellers
    You regain 1 point every 3 minutes, so don't you just put a cool down on world chat to send messages every 3 mins only?
    We can use this 1 vigor point for something else useful 
    Thanks for reading.
    Bye bye
