  3. Umm,
    What? Just had 5 of these happen in the last 20 minutes. Been happening a lot since the patch 2 weeks ago. Anyone know if this is fixable or not? Hate it that it also kicks you out of the game instead of going to the title screen...
  4. I've died about 4 days ago, due to d-sync, lost both of my awakened black spirit crystals on death, couple hours ago I've finally replaced the second gem.
    Went to farm cadry elites...Game became unresponsive for about 1 minute, I've kept spamming my potions, holding block, and rotating healing spells, after about a minute, when I've regained connection to the server, I see this.
     
     
     
     
     


  5. I've bloody had it with these karma bombers/random pkers/aholes in general that just comes to your grinding spot and kills you cus you where in their way.
    Just the bloody fact that the ones getting PKd are the ones being penalized instead of the PKer is just f***ing b***s*** and should never happen. And also the fact that the system that is supposed to "prevent" unfairly kills in the first place is too bloody easy to fix. It's like you are rewarding people for being aholes in this game and that's NOT how a MMORPG should be like, sandbox or not.
     
    So i see 2 options out of this dilemma to fix this rather easy problem for Kakao to fix....
    1: Add a new server, PvE only (eg, no PKing, unless youre in a bg/node war/duel or if you happen to meet someone else with PK on, but only if you also have it on).
    2: Severely increase the amount of penalty from killing other players unfairly. Instead of having "karma" that you can regain by just grinding even more (which is BS in it itself as well), having a flat amount of "free kills" before you either get sentenced to jail (where you have to pay half of your total money from every storage you currently have money on to get out from) or having the guard of every city being able to aggro you (even the outpost guards) and kill you if you get too close. And the amount of "free kills" gets progressively lower the more you do it in a short amount of time (and that amount is shared on your family, so you cant just go pk again on another toon).
     
    This is my 2 cents of the current problem and before you post "git gud nub" and stuff like that, i'm not the only one that just want to enjoy the game as it is and just being randomly killed by someone because "we where in their way" and that its actually encouraged to kill other players unfairly... The current system is just not enough, not even close. I've been killed so many times and every single time i've been told "git gud" and whatnot...
     
    No. Just no... You guys are the ones that keeps players like me from fully enjoying the game. If you wanna pk, then go to a bloody BG or Nodewar! If that's not enough, there are plenty of "pvp-only" zones where you can kill other players without penalty.... That's all i'm asking.
     
    edit: It seems that i was right about the people here. 90% of the repliers in this thread are the ones that says "Dont remove open world pvp or i wont be satisfied whenever i login" is all i hear from these people. Seriously, get a life.
  6. Really Daum? Are you guys serious? 0.07 MB/sec??? almost hrs download for 1,73GB ???
    This is so damn unbeliveable - i don`t know if i want to laugh or cry?!
    That´s it. I´m out. I know you Devs don`t give a damn about that.
  7. My first month on the Olvia servers things were great. I never had server lag. When I heard people complain about it I wondered if it was just their internet/computer. 
    Since losing Olvia access, it is torturous. Frequently throughout the day, night, weekend, whatever, the server is so lagged that you can't even talk to NPCs. You rubberband around - sometimes back to positions you were in 2-5 minutes previous. I've even died as a result of it and lost crystals and XP. 
    Is there even a solution in sight? This is an absolute bare bones requirement for running an MMO that your servers need to at least be able to handle the load and process commands.
    Even just lifeskilling is brutal because you press "R" and nothing happens for 60-120 seconds. BRUTAL.
     
  8. I'm only asking because they still say crowded and I'm just a bit confused on why there's no option for me to enter them.
    I went to a noncrowded server, was immediately booted and this happened when I logged back in:
     

    It also doesn't make sense that this would happen to me because when I first got booted, that was my first time logging in the past 24-48 hours.

    Hallo! Sagen Sie mir, ich zuerst den Client auf einem Server Nord Amerika laufen und zog dann nach Europa, kann so sein, dass die Server haben Blöcke von Europa für das? Dank!
    [Moderator translation] I want to create a character on the EU server can I play him on NA too ?
  10. Kinda tired of the server lag that happens so often, especially during node wars. I also have another video of me using my skills, and then getting ah "skill is unuseable on cooldown" only to be teleported back to the middle of a zerg and die  which I will post after this node war is over haha.

  11. Post on Region transfer NA/EU in Suggestions

    By Nevon, posted
    First time submitting an idea here, so here goes.
     
    Since I started playing the game about a year ago, I have had many and more joyful hours in the virtual realm that is BDO. From slaying dreadful monsters, setting up trading empires, teaming up with friends to take down larger challenges to becoming a potato baron. There is much to praise about the game for sure. But as we all know there are also a lot of things that have major room for improvement.
    Now I understand that a lot of players want a lot of things, and it is impossible to implement every single idea. If not because the idea is not good, then because it requires a lot of programming to combat the current game structure. I would say my request falls in the latter category, yet I think it can be done!
    To get more to the point. Since launch in EU/NA, BDO, and especially the community has changed quite a bit. Servers have been merged, content has been added, people found their place in all of this. And personally I must say a lot of my friends have shifted focus to the NA servers for.. a variety of reasons I will not name here. As much as I would like to follow my online companions in their quest to the new world, I feel bound to my old and trusted EU lands for reasons that I think shouldn't do this. I have spent quite a bit of money on customizing my character with outfits. I have spent countless hours grinding my way up and getting gear as well as that sweet sweet silver. I have build respectable empires of trade and am an employer to many and more Goblins that would be stuck in the gutter if it weren't for me.
    All of this makes moving to another region (NA) and starting over completely very hard. It would be a waste of nearly a year worth of progress, and many euro's of hard earned cash. Not to mention the effects of the aforementioned employee goblins that rely on my trade to sustain their families! What kind of human being would I be if I left them all to their faith?
    So... what is to be done? Give up my dreams of exploring the new world? Let my friends drift off to a vague memory in the back of my mind while I get rooted in the same place? I think not! Another solution rises to the surface, and it is named "Region transfer". Now before my outlandish idea gets shot down, allow me to explain it.

    In its very essence, the idea is for players to have an option to transfer their character to another region (From NA to EU, or EU to NA). And with the character, their energy, contribution, dye's, costumes, and more are transferred along. This way, people can freely (Or for some pearls I suppose) move from one region to another if their friends decide to relocate, or for other reasons. I am certain many players would appreciate this option, and it seems to be a common thing in other MMO's. It would be yet another thing that makes BDO more attractive to the public, a useful feature that satisfies both players, and gives DAUM a reason to steal a few pearls from our pocket (Although free would be even better, although very unlikely!).
    Now I get that this is not something easily done. A few things that immediately spring to mind are issues with transferring account (or server) bound stats. If you move your highest character, then what is the new energy/contribution of your remaining chars based on? Does it all transfer to the new region or not? Questions I can not answer here, and I am sure the team that will eventually have to work on this will flesh out.
    But enough rambling about. I hope this gets a bit of attention.

    Cheers,
    A hopeful player.
  12. The game won't work
    I've spent hours of my life on this from 9 pm to 3 am. First time I started the game, it seemed fine ( some FPS problems, but that was probably just my computer ) then I created my character, again everything seemed fine. Once I finished creating my character I was excited to get in the game, I clicked on a server and entered. It brought me to a loading screen of a map, I assumed the game was just loading, but the loading took about 15 minutes I said to myself "okay, its an open world game must take a while to load". Nothing happened. The game couldn't connect to the server I clicked okay and I passed it off as a bad connection. This cycle has been going on for hours, each time with a different server and every time with a failed connection. I tested my connection, turned off my other wifi using devices, shut down VPN's and other programs, and nothing. Nothing at all worked, I tried to look up guides on how to fix it, but all I found was no solution only people with the same problem. Now I am begging, all I want to do is enjoy and play the game even for a moment, I am very tired and frustrated. I am using the trial, I was really going to pay for the game once I got a taste, but I guess I won't get anything, for now I'm going to play some World of Warcraft, you know, TO PLAY SOMETHING THAT WORKS! Please help, I really would like to give this game a try.
    Honestly all you have to do is make LAN servers an option and the issue is solved. I heard this problem has been going on for about a year now, seriously! All you have to do is make LAN servers an option! If you do this single player is sort of an option, you can play with only your friends, and it will ultimately reduce lag and disconnection.I just might be an idiot and this is already an option, if it is, please notify my ignorant face.If its not TELL THE DEVS TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN! IT CANT BE THAT HARD TO IMPORT LAN!
  13. When will we replace the potato servers? I keep seeing improvements ingame, but not the important factor - Server Capability.

  14. NA sever is crashing, node wars is dead, people frozen, crashing, having issues getting back in...
  15. Hello,
    Currently, it appears all the servers have lagged out and nobody can play. Please update us, and get better servers.
    Can't reconnect after rebooting game stuck on "Now Processing"
    Seriously you would make more money if you paid out for better servers so that you had a better reputation and less player churn, whoever is deciding not to dish out for better servers needs to be fired/removed.
    Edit: Kakao read the Black Desert subreddits at some point - your PR blows, and you should feel bad. You need to reply and talk to us players and explain the problems and what you are doing to fix them if you want a healthy player attitude. The only reason you wouldn't is that you don't care and are not willing to improve.

    V Since DE or the GM will not look at this post It's pretty useless, because the most common bugs are the ones  that deterrent people away from this game.

    The black screen when launching has yet to be fixed, because it should not take 6mins just to see the main menu,                                                                       
    connecting to the server still needs to be fixed, because if my character can move around and if i can collect the daily login I'm pretty sure I'm connected to the server.
    Also make sure to up vote to make sure DE fixes this=+1 or a comment.

  17. It's impossible to go any where to grind or make some cash without starting 5 guild wars or getting pked this shit i ridiculous it's overcrowded every where iv switched channels today like 9 times and still could not even find room in a party.. http://origin.webcdn.theblackdesertonline.net/forum/service_live/monthly_03_2017/a12312.thumb.jpg.cf2c86f77d369e8d5a82d3e12aeac030.jpg i mean really just add another 6 channels with a new server this ain't freaking asia to be a few players ... europe at least it's unbarable i mean i like pvp just as much as the next maniac but let's be real here i want to get some cash too 
  18. Is it normal for Friday evenings for it to be virtually impossible to log-in and play this game or is it just because of the new class?  I tried for an hour to play tonight and I was disconnected within a few seconds every time no matter what channel I tried.  My internet was staying connected so it must be on the game server end.  I guess I will just wait til a less busy time to play.  Does Black Desert always have overloaded servers?
  19. I've been trying to log onto BDO.  I will select my character and enter the game, but I will lose connection to the server before the game loads, or shortly after it does.  Afterwards, I try again, and it works.
    My problem now is that I can't get into the game because I logged out in the middle of Calpheon, which is very graphically intensive.  Si my question is, Is there some way to prevent the game from closing after I lose connection to the server? I believe I will have an easier time loading the game if I can connect back to it right away.
  20. I'm trying to buy some pearls, but everytime I try to purchase Daum cash, I get an error message. (Internal Server Error)
    Is there a way to fix this?
  21. Heya

    So the run down is that now 1-4 olvia severs are not showing up anymore and since then for some reason every time i go to choose ANY alternate server to log in it just kicks me out saying "you cannot changer chanels due to chanel restrictions"" thus closing the client.

    i've been trying to login for the past 10 hours every hour or so and no dice.

    -Some more information
    >i was reading a bookshelf on one of my alts
    >i was on olvia server when i was kicked out / Dc'd  prior to the servers disappearing from me (30 day)
    >My Old ticket is REQUEST #271758  
    >My new ticket that has better information is REQUEST#272326 

    I've attached pictures of what my server list looks like and what happens when i press connect to any server that i CAN join.

    I was told by others to ask GM's to log me out of all servers since this problem is relatively common.


    Thankyou

  22. Regardless of which server I try to connect to, I get a server timeout/unable to connect saying "Connection to the server has been lost".
    I've tried servers in both NA and EU and the issues persist regardless of how crowded said server is. I've rebooted and restarted my router, tried at least five different channels on both regions, made sure the firewall is off, no virus program running in the background and disabled Windows defender, but nothing helps. 

    Does anyone know what to do? 
  23. Post on Connection issues in In-Game Bugs

    By crpyt, posted
    I know this is a common issue many people have and probably has been brought up numerous times,but I'm trying to make this post to put my insight on this matter.     
    Mostly Occurs From
    -Logging In at or near town. can also be a bunch of other stuff but this 1 is the most common
    -Simple fixes
    A-Hitting the ok button does not CTD.
    B-add a retry button to the lost connection panel.
    C-Simply connect to the server when the game is at the main screen instead of the loading screen.

    By Nezrox, posted
    Is it just me or is the NA servers taking a shit, random loading screen up the butt, dc's, delay/lag, fps drop, i know they just patched this yesterday but i wanted to know if its just me or not. what problems have you guys been getting since yesterday?
  25. There are a lot of connection issues with Black Desert Online. I am posting another as the issue needs to be magnified. I have submited a ticket as well. 
    I downloaded the game the morning of 2/11 This was the trial. It took most the morning to download/install. 
    After complete, I kept getting a corrupted file error(attached) when trying to launch the game. I then followed the KB article (https://blackdesert.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/210761289-Corrupted-files) - The fix for this was finding the corrupt file, deleting and relaunching the game. It seemed to do a file check and download that file. (time stamp changed on the file that was corrupt) ~ took about 15 minutes 
    After being frustrated, I was able to get the game to launch but kept getting the Disconnect Error about 1-2 minutes intoplaying
    game. I would click "OK (ENTER)" and it would close the game. 
    This was annoying as after trying to launch the game again and try a different server I would have to wait. (OnQueue - wait for 10 minutes) This happened the good part of the afternoon. (handful of times) I tried 4-5 different servers. 
    I was able to finally get into a server (NA_Velia4), played for some ofthe
    evening then a friend wanted me to be on the same server with him. (NA-Olvia1) After doing that I got the disconnect / on queue loop. I tried going back to the server I was on and it would not connect it would give me the loop again. 
    I was still on the 7-day trial and thought maybe the servers would take priority over free players vs paid players so I bought the Explorer's package. This made no difference. Now, 2/12 I tried to launch the game and I am still getting the loop.
    I tried to log in the morning of 2/13 with the same issues.
    When the connection issue happens I do notice other players on the server but I cannot hit "R" on anything...after 3-5 minutes I get disconnected.  
    I tried to disable my AV/Firewall.
    I tried to reboot my modem and router. I waited 5 minutes before plugging them back in. I plugged the modem in first waited for it to connect then plugged my router in.
    I do not use a VPN booster or any proxies set up.
    I am able to reach ports 8888 and 9991 - 9993 - I port forwarded them for the heck of it. Tested using : http://portquiz.net:8888/ 
    My internet Speed is 30 down and 5 up. I am reaching these speeds. I ran more than one speed test. 
    When I downloaded the game I was reaching 3-5 mbps. So, should I be able to play the game with ease? No...
    I am using WLAN with no option to use LAN. All people that have Wifi have connection issues? My wireless card is a Linksys AE6000 which is capable of the speeds. My router is Linksys and it is N. I went as far as testing my speeds between my computer and another computer on my network by copying a large file. Both computers are on WLAN. The speed was ~ 4 MB/s. The file size was about 600 MBs. WLAN vs LAN should not be the issue.
    I disconnected all other connections to my router. (WLAN & LAN) I was the only connection to my internet. This changed nothing. 
    This game should not be a LAN only game. 
    I downloaded this game on another system and it still happens using the WLAN card. This system was a laptop. I was able to plug this one into the LAN and the game works. 
    This seems to be poor engineering. I do not have issues with any other games on my computer. 
     
    Please get this issue fixed!!
    I'll provide some links to others that are having connection issues: posted between 12/01/2017 to now 02/14/2017. I won't collect the ones before 12/01/2016 because if I did there would be to many.
