  1. Free shit is always good, just wanted to know after claiming all 31 days of the event you don't get anything else, because I just logged in and that's what I've got nothing
  2. Hello,
    in my opinion one of the strongest features of Black Desert Online is the enormous immersion that you created. You have living cities and a vivid enviroment, an interesting political background story and really beautiful charakter models.
    But you have to walk me through your thought process regarding your Event-Flooding. Why do you keep on with immersion breaking elements like easter eggs, soccer balls, medals...? Do you really think or does your marketing experts really tell you, that the players will chase those medals and play the game because of your events rather than the fact, that your game is great and full of awesome elements (workers, nodes, sieges, nodewars,...)?
    You really should as a sandbox game orientate yourself to games like Eve-Online and start planning a testserver for example, try to make your economic system work etc. and not wasting your time on themepark oriented content.
    But again, please walk my thorugh your thought process, I am really curios.

    I. Suggestions to make game More User Friendly & Fun
     
    Never call something a reward that you would not want yourself for it does not sell or just takes up Inv space,(Stack ALL item drops).
    'Reason for need' example: A game should make you feel good not one letdown after the other. I have bought in real cash all the weight things but still find myself changing to weight adding armor in the middle of doing quest as well as running back and forth to town and/or wagon. THIS CAN BE DEPRESING when trying to see how fast one can level or win tokens for an event. Too much time juggling weight and space wasting items. Do not get me wrong I love the money for selling drops but then I spent hours running around to the correct NPCs to sell them all only to discover I have to figure out a way to handle the weight gain for them to trade it. Changing EVERYTHING to sell to any general store would be an AWESOME help.
    Add and/or remove code so RNG is more player friendly. Tip the scales to the player. Shorten the window for cool drops. Exp: A Witch earring is cool and the value would still be there with more drops as we would just combined them more; trying to upgrade rather than adding so many to the Auction House.
    Please add the choice to ride a horse off your wagon so one does not have to cross country to change from wagon to horse, for even after buying stable room, few have more than one stable with enough room to put the wagon in and heaven forbid if you can not but the wagon in for a colt was born and named before putting away the wagon.. This can be programmed by copying then changing the code from your stable. It would be so cool to ride wagon for the inv/weight space, then ride a horse back and forth to the wagon.
    Please move all NPCs that are next to major NPCs so one does not keep clicking the wrong NPC so easily. It is so bad around some NPCs I had to get more coffee to try to wake up and wear my glasses, lol. Not a biggie but helps if like me you have bad eyes, clumsy, or just a bad typist, to be honest I hate moving my character so much just to talk, I like running in and running out.
    Add EVENT things to (ALL peoples favorite thing to do) next time, like cooking;; just a little program change adding chance to get a reward instead of one of the odd dish rewards. And every so many miles a chance for a bag if all you do is level and breed horses. Horse breeders are already left out of so many things like a loosing gambler rolling that dice one more time we have trouble stopping to do something else; for we want to level and see what we get next expecting a winning colt this time.
    Stop the wall that kicks one off wagon and or horse or give us a reward each time to replace time lost and at times horse lost. I sent you photos of where it happens already but can resend if you need.
    REDUCE lag by moving all horse levelers to a separate sever the way GW2 does parts of their game then : Add an inside mini game where your horses just race around a track and each mini game starts at certain times like the GW2 bird races and we can level and watch our horses race each other. That would be more fun than the other race you have for we do it as we level the horses and watch our own horses race each other not other people. Horse and wagons on the same track as we level our wagons and horse shoes to go faster that means money for you.
    Add experience and other important stats in the chat so we see how much experience and what not we get for each monster kill as we test out different equipment. When games give players some programming control there is a reason behind it being the first thing we get/ask for . When I program I add it as a UI window option.
    Give us a separate equipment inventory so we have room to change equipment for what we are doing. FFXI had that to protection and you changed equipment even during a battle using macros for some equipment needed to be changed out as you switched staffs etc. Fun things like that had me playing that game for years until I caught a FFXI employee stealing characters to rob their bank and inventory.
     
     
    II. Explanation of reasoning behind suggestions.
    Job Change: Program Monti Carlo slot machines To Programming Games
    Or
    Black Desert Ringer Gremlin
     
    I had had a few depressing weeks when the Black Desert Ringer Gremlin, (GM Dave come to mind? http://bannable-offenses.blogspot.com/2006_04_01_archive.html) seemed to play games with me but today I was protected for I had a special day planned.
     
    It was not going to be a reg day for today when I jumped from bed to desk, I knew when I started Black desert Online I would rush to the barn and see a new colt! A colt that would be special for I had spent months catching and training horses. I still had some T4s level 25 to 30 to decide how to combine but I at last I had a barn of T5s level 25 – 30 another barn of T6.
     
    I had gone to bed the night before almost ready to turn into the German boy slamming his key board around as his game went nuclear, http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/angry-german-kid-keyboard-crasher. I will not go into all that had gone wrong that day ..........
    .....I clicked the receive colt button and …...How the hell-o did I get that from.....
    Ok I knew T5 J (http://imgur.com/a/DaeiQ) did not look special but she was a purebred black and bred to muscle man T5N both at level 25 I was hoping for T6 A...... at the least T6 G-U minus the T6 L&M. ….. I got the T6 L?
    Does T6L have duplicates in the random spin? I now have 3 of these guys! Ok, one of them I think my mare was deleveled in points after that hog took off one of her legs and this T5 Solid Black mare does not look as good as the T5L solid black mare but ….. Perhaps two of them combined will give me the cute white cat.
    After some leveling of my Tamer I jumped on my wagon to top all my horses to level 30. I use the
    Offspring Table (http://www.blackd.de/horse/) but so many hidden factors maybe topping these babies up will ….. Man what I would pay for the real breeding equation...(Caught rambling I AM NOT a second voice in the head of Rand al'Thor 'of The Wheel Of Time but if I keep leveling horses I may end up with my own second voice as my head already hurts and spins.)
     
    I am beginning to think I need a bigger barn to put more quarters in this Casino Slot machine programming. (By the way did you know you have better chances to win with a Las Vegas slot machine than a slot machine in Monti Carlo? I kid you not I tested them myself. I am beginning to think the guys that programmed in Monti Carlo now program games.)
     
    Ok, on the wagon, AFK, I came back after a few hours and no leveling for the loop I had watched before I left now had changed at one end and my wagon was on a fence. No experience from the horses running but I did notice the life on the wagon was spinning faster than ever.
     
    I was not going to let this get me down …....I restarted the loop....came back had not leveled much for my wagon hit the Black Desert Ringer Gremlin Wall. I was no longer on the wagon but nothing had attacked the wagon like killing my poor horse last week so I leaped onto the wagon and rushed back to the barn.
     
    I decided I should change from wagon to horse before bed for it has less chance of hanging up at the end of the loop. Plenty of carrots, auto eat carrots checked, what could go wrong..............
     
    A few hours latter I woke up, looked at the PC screen, Little Zip, (from Texas King Ranch!!) did not level much she hit the wall and I was no longer on her. I reset everything too sleepy to remember that wall resets auto eat carrots.... SEVERAL hours latter I awoke; Little Zip still moving BUT not much leveling for she is walking slower than a foundered horse in 2 foot of mud. OMG I need to level how many horses!!??##@@##

  5. So i'm not currently playing BDO(waiting for awakenings) But i have been longing in for the daily rewards for when i do start playing again. The thing is it wont let me collect anymore of the login rewards. Its been 3 days now sense it allowed me to collect it. Not to pissed yet giving how much time there is still left for this event. If anyone knows why this might be happening id love to know.
  6. As the title suggests, I really would like to know if on the last day of the Valencia Event, do I still get a Seal or no and if so, should I cash-in my seals before the 20th or is it fine to do so on the day?
  7. Bring back the euro event! The drop rate was shit! >.<

  9. Hello!
    First I wish to say that I like the tagging system and world pvp in this game.. that theres no factions and you can if you want to, attack on everyone you want that are +45. But the problem that I have, there's no reward doing it.
     
    Let me explain this even a bit more than the usual shouts on the forum:
    Some people would really enjoy 1v1 dueling with rewards. I'm not suggesting that there should be something official like World of Warcraft/Blade&Souls styled arenas. Daum's so called bounty hunter system should already come as test/rehearsal. You've been talking about it months but nothing really hasn't happened. This might still lead into 1vX situation.
    Now the second problem, restricting gold sellers. You took away every way that goldsellers could do anything in BDO but on my side, it bites a bit back. I used to play Elder Scrolls Online. That game didn't either have any sort of dueling system or anything small scale pvp... BUT! in that game players could trade and send mail even with the enemy faction players. I used to be part of team that organized dueling events with prizes. They were popular. You can check some ESO dueling events from youtube if interested. In BDO since you banned almost all trading, I cant form dueling events with prize. It's very hard to lure anyone into a dueling tournament without a carrot in the end aka prize for the winner. You've done chat filer, taking silver gifting away and others to make silver sellers harder life but I think that on some point you went too far. These kind of extreme actions against sellers bites back if asked from me. And if Im not completely wrong, they still sell silver through that they farm with your account while you're at work or sleep. It's very hard to clean the sellers 100% out of the game.
     
    In nutshell:
    I want to accomplish with this text that there would be a way to reward someone with trade or something. This thing really keeps me away from doing stuff like dueling tournaments or any other events. I've enjoyed doing events for people since WoW: Burning Crusade. I want to add custom events in a way into this game. HECK! There isn't even a place in a forum to announce any custom events... other mmos have that. It's almost like you don't want to give any tools for players to create events. I cant see any harm in it... we as players use our own time to make your game environment even more enjoyable. I call myself as idealist, I like to plan lots of things, some I execute and some not. Might be why I like to create own guilds in mmos and create events. I think it's just pure fun to see your own work and that it's giving others a good time.
    Usually there's wise persons scrolling suggestion topics so I wish that we could keep this topic suggestive/non-toxic too.
     
    I already know so don't bother to bark about it:
    - gear is a very big thing in this game but there are ways to fight against this like limits + pvp isn't only event in the world
    - taking something back and saying "we went too far in here", admitting the error is a big step ++ I'm not suggesting that only. I just want a way to reward someone, doesn't have to be through trading and before you ask: I'm not going to pay for costumes etc using euros to give reward. My bank isn't in that state. x)
    - oh my god how bad my english was before I read it myself. I still think there might be some big mistakes but I'm so tired atm while typing. + english isn't my mother tongue so please don't focus on the grammar and that stuff. Focus into the content. 
     
     
    Throw a comment how would you feel about player driven events. Have you ever been in player driven event? Did you enjoy yourself? Would there be anything negative in these?
  10. Hello! This is a PvP related suggestion!
    I was sitting in my room as always thinking of fairy tales and all the other stuff when this came up to me, the community doesn't really gain anything but actual combat experience when fighting in the area, now with the duel options there isn't that much need of arena at all and it feels sad walking inside an empty stage doesn't it?
    So let the PvP shine again with this event; I'll explain below exactly what the even is about and how it works!
    "NOTE" : Due to many complains about " PK ain't cool brah" I thought this would be the best opportunity to actually have some fun and rewards !
    Glitter and Gold:
    #This even is mainly about 1v1/2v2/3v3/4v4/5v5 duels between party members!
    To encourage people into more pvp it seems that we need a rewarding system so I thought why don't we give everyone duel points?
    Player "Jake" has the 5 Fame points(default)
    Player "Jake" may obtain Fame points by defeating other players only via DUEL system in-game.
    Player "Tessa" challenges Player "Jake" to a duel
    Player "Jake" accepts and mops the ground with Player "Tessa"
    Player "Jake" gain 1 Fame point while Player "Tessa" loses 1 Fame point
    fairly dull so far right?
    Now here's where the things get interesting!
    "NOTE":You may not "OPEN" challenge inside safe-zones
    Fame points will be obtained and lost 1 at time by dueling, these points may be stacked more and more until reach the "OPEN DUEL"; once you reach a high amount of points you will have no choice of decline a duel, once declared you have 10 seconds to prepare and a time limit of 10 minutes before the duel ends as a draw and each player loses 1/4 points. "As an OPEN DUEL member you will lose not 1 but 1/4 of your points for each lose/draw and gain 1/4 of opponents points"
    After you've won/lost or drawn an OPEN DUEL you have a cooldown of 10-15 minutes before you may be challenged again.
    I am not very good at explaining things so please tell me what seems unclear, this will help me develop this even further (I have some issues that sometimes block my mind and I can't see small details that my be very important  )
     
    This "Fame points" may be turned into rewards such as mystery rng boxes, house decorations and many more; at the top reward for a very high amount of points you may turn them in for something very valuable"
    Long story short, duel players and compete with others in fair ways to earn more and more rewards, the higher you go the harder it gets.
     
     
     
     
  11. Hallo,
    ich hab mal ein paar Fragen zu dem Event. Ich hab das Formular damals ausgefüllt und einen Screenshot hochgeladen. Doch bis jetzt habe ich keinen Titel bekommen.
    Bin ich die einzige die noch wartet? Welchen Titel gab es? Vllt "Familienmensch"? Ticket schreiben bringt mir leider garnichts, weil sie ewig nicht antworten und als dann endlich die Antwort kam, hiess es nur: "sollte das Problem immer noch bestehen, dann schreib nochmal ein Ticket".
    Ich hab noch nirgends einen Hinweis von den CMs gefunden, dass die Titel verteilt wurden sind.
     
    Danke schön mal für eure hilfe.
  12. I would like to start this thread off with a picture of some comments I have received about my character after all the hard work I have put into making it. These comments are hurtful emotionally after spending multiple hours making my character to the best of my ability. I personally think that this event should be ended prematurely before anyone else feels like they are being attacked and bullied out of the game for not meeting peoples sick standards of beauty.

  13. I had a mad idea, and i'm posting it here!
    Every weekend friday to sunday, a server for about 250 player with x10 or more/less boost on all (exp/loot/skillpoints) you can sign up to,
    You would be able to collect gear and level up from ex: Friday 17:00 to Sunday 14:00, at sunday 15:00 evry player on that server would be teleported to a pvp area for mortal combat experience
    Catch! If you die you character will wipe and you can not join the server again untill next event start, PVP is on all the time! and can't be turned off,
    At the last day in the pvp arena! 
    The top 10 players that was last alive will get a reward sent to their account with a Box or bundel that containe anything in the game.
    This is not p2w and all players have the chance to win ^^ and the reward is pretty neat for loosing time on your main ^^ and you will have a blast wile playing
  14. Also mal ehrlich bitte schaltet das kack Fussball-event ab oder macht es richtig. Es ist mehr als offensichlich das die Fussbälle denn gewöhnlichen Blauen loot blockieren.

  16. Greetings.
    I have a suggestion about the item storage of [Event] Combat skill reset. At the moment the location of this item is inside the inventory, In fact it is an item of pearl/loyalties store. Why isn't inside the pearl inventory? Like partial combat skill reset or awekened skill reset.
    Thanks for your time.
    Cheers


  17. As the title states, seeing as 4th of July is a very big holiday in the USA will we get a event?
    CM_Tytyes, please say yes! please, please, pretty please?

    Note: I reserve the right to choose, with good reason, to waive the randomness for any particular reason for select people. (Ie, if you give me a huge novella-length sob story, take a good effort to take postcard shots and show me your postcard collection, there's a chance I'll give you extra consideration if you don't win.) (Or, if you bash on the thread, I can choose to revoke any chance of you getting one at all.)

    Tl;dr: Win a collectible set of these (click here), with (your) screenshots on them! (Or do it to have your screenshots professionally printed.)
    What am I talking about?
    While it’s a bit of an archaic thing, sending a postcard is still a common way of correspondence and a cheap (and fun) way of commemorating places you’ve seen or things you’ve done. Personally, I’ve collected them for years, and, with the recent National Postcard Week, I’ve decided to put together a small community event, and I hope you’ll celebrate with me!
    In that, go into Black Desert Online and take screenshots of your favorite things. There are several categories to participate in, and we all know how great this game is for screenshots, so if you already do this on the regular, there’s no reason not to participate. We’ll have a panel of judges from our guild [POW] that rank each in the categories.
    How many postcards are you giving away?
    1st place in any category gets all 4 sets (12 postcards).2nd place in any category gets 3 of 4 sets (9 postcards).3rd place in any category gets 2 of 4 sets (6 postcards).4th place in any category gets 1 of 4 sets (3 postcards).30 additional participants will be randomly chosen to have one set each mailed to them.

    There are two ways to submit your entries. Note: Just do one of the following.
    Post it in this forum thread! Upload an image to Imgur, Photobucket or any supporting image service, and post it with a link in an entry post containing your other information (see below).

    The image(s) itself.What category you're going for with each image.Character name / Account NameAre you interested in receiving postcards? (If yes, and your name is drawn, we’ll contact you for details later.)Optional: Name the image!What quality are these postcards / how will I get my postcards?
    The postcards are printed on white 60lb paper, with standard postcard framing dimensions within 4x6 in. It will include the creator’s name, and the title if they provided one.
    Once the contest is done, we will contact all those who have been chosen / won and request information. At any point, you can tell us to bugger off.
    That said, it’s an internet world, and, of course, I could be some crazy person looking for an address to send all the internet kittens to. On one hand, you don’t have to get postcards, and you can just bask in the fame of being an awesome screenshot enthusiast. On the other hand, we (POW, my gaming community) have done these events before, and still regularly send out birthday cards andholiday cards. So, it’s your choice.

    We are also running this in GW2, so if you’re interested in submitting photos for that, please feel free. You are allowed to enter in both versions.
    The back template is subject to change - we're currently in contact with some CMs to confirm the layout.

  22. When I redeemed the eye patch for the "Yo Hoho & a Bottle of Rum" event, I noticed that this item goes into my normal inventory, not into the pearl inventory as it did for the Cherry Blossom Earring. This seems wierd and inconsistent seeing how it does equip into the pearl costume slots & it's annoying to have a cosmetic item take up inventory space, especially when it's avoided at all other times in the game.
    It's IMO not a major issue, but it's annoying and feels more like an oversight than anything else.
    Please fix this by simply making this item go into our pearl inventories when unequipped.
    Additionally:
    Both the eye patch and bandana are named "[Event] Pirate Bandana", maybe that name should be changed to something more appropriate?
    Constructive replies are very appreciated!
  23. How's the drop rate for you guys? It seems to drop of any kind of mob, grey-purple, but never in larger capacity from any specific mob.
    I tested to farm everything from beetles in the start zone to catfishmen, the drop rate seems constant to about 26-28 for for 2,5h. (I farmed for the same time for several days, always getting the same amount(ish) of drops. A friend got 28 for 3h, my SO got 23 for 2h, this makes me wonder if the drop rate is actually time based instead of pure RNG.
    Has anyone noticed something similar? (What I'm trying to find out is, if its worth farming for them, or just ignore it and see them as a bonus while doing 'normal' grind content)
  24. Ok so this is not a flame post but a genuine question about who the pirate part of this event is aimed at? the 10% no lifers that spends 10h+/day in this game or? cause its certanly not for the generic player, thats for sure.
    Now what im getting at is the drop rate, and yes yes RNG gods and whatnot but, events are suppose to be fun, do some grinding or do a fun quest get some nice swag puff loot that has absolutely no advantage other then looking silly or funny or just fun stuff. 
    Now i work alot. and normaly i get to spend what 4-10h a week in this game maybe (actively playing that is), depending on how i am working? but i had 3 days off now since the event started and i figured awesome, i had been sitting thinking that what this game is missing is a good eyepatch. Low and behold the event came on and i was like 

    Thinking oh Sweet Jebus its here! and not only an eyepatch but some other fun stuff.
    Now ok so here is the item i wanted and its an event i figured this will be fun.....well i guess i couldn't be more wrong even if i tried.

    Ok so ive spent probably over 20h now farming. I was lvl 36 when i started and i started with red mobs, Had an average of 0 drops in 2hours...Ok so huh thats odd, well i figured i better try something else. i worked my way down to grey mobs, and after some googling i tried the grass beetles and finaly started getting some drops. I am as i said 20 hours in and ive managed to gather 144 of the rum...Really? thats an insanly crappy drop rate for an event. and im guessing i probably clock more then the average joe in this game thats working full time and have a family etc. So who exaktly is this event aimed at? i understand that the event contiues up untill the 25th, But yeah that's still probably not gonne be enough time for the generic players.
     Well let the flaming begin.
