Castle Siege system going live!

Greetings Adventurers,

 

Many of you have been participating in the “Node Wars Rehearsal Events” in which your creative use of gameplay mechanics helped us evaluate and improve these systems. We’re excited to announce that your hard work has paid off with the official deployment of Castle Sieges starting on the 17th of July - 2016.

 

As we bring the rehearsal to a close the following changes will come into effect:

 

Full Node/Castle Reset

All currently owned nodes, castles, and taxes associated with these areas will be reset following the end of the rehearsal on the July 13th during the server maintenance.

 

Valencia will be temporarily excluded from this upcoming round of Sieges. Our team is working closely with Pearl Abyss to ensure the valuable feedback from these rehearsals can be applied to this newly released content. We will include the scheduled release date in a future announcement.

 

Event Rewards

All eligible guilds will be receiving their rewards based on level of participation in the node war rehearsal event . Guild leaders can expect to find these funds deposited within their guild banks at the conclusion of server maintenance July 13th.

 

Guilds that have shown steadfast dedication to helping assess these systems by participating in both node war rehearsals will be eligible for the maximum reward of silver.

 

The rewards categories will be as follows:

  • Rewards for Rehearsal I: 30M Silver

  • Rewards for Rehearsal II: 50M Silver

  • Rewards for participation in Rehearsal I & II: Additional 20M Silver

  • Maximum combined reward total: 100M Silver

We look forward to seeing all of you out on the battlefields as we watch the ensuing mayhem, creative strategies, and hard fought victories as you battle for your guilds claim to own a piece of Black Desert Online!

What about money in nodes that guilds did not claim yet ? Where is that ?  You only told us AFTER the maint that the nodes would be removed during the maint, and many guilds have lost a lot of money due to your failure of communication.

Yeah seriously, wtf!

Yeah you should have figured this out the last time they did it without warning.  I grabbed my guilds funds right before shutdown.  Why would you have left money in there with reset coming? 

So is anything being fixed in the live version?

Do defenders need to rebuilt their forts?  When will the forts come down if so.

What about castle defenses.  How does that work?  Is it a free for all allowing anyone with a t2 or t3 node to participate.

So the german manual says a t3/t2 in any area allows you to siege a castle in any area while the NA version says you must a t3/t2 node on the territory where the castle is.  Which one is it?  If it is the NA version then it is bugged.

What about the huge number of people that can't even change channels in the game?...currently making node wars unplayable to those players if the issue isn't resolved.  I can only connect to one channel without getting "connection to the server is lost" after one minute of being in game.   Why not fix the disconnect and lag issues before fully releasing node/castle wars?

I say this to the whole thing, the servers are pure crap. I guess they're not even thinking at this point. Just last night they had masses of people d/cing and not being able to log back in. Yet they still feel the servers can handle node wars and sieges...

I am beginning to think they are completely incompetent or just don't care anymore.

Something is very wrong at Daum Games.

Uh what? last time they let them expire... there was no reset of nodes at all..

 

Victors of the first week of rehearsal were substantially more rewarded then victors of the 2nd week, which is whatever, but a heads up about the reset would've been nice..

I agree with the more communication part.  I don't trust these folks which is why I have been collecting the taxes whenever I was in the area.  Yep the castle owners got jobbed this time through.

The last time they made an announcement after the reset the nodes on Monday, this time they stayed till Tuesday.  Go figure.

As excited as I am for Node Wars........ Unless you've moved hosting companies or bought your own servers, I'm probably going to wind up stuck dead in a fort again.

Please stop rushing content before the servers are ready.

And please explain why you believe releasing the main game mode while the classes are horribly unbalanced because we have the awakening patch but no awakenings is a good idea.

Sigh. This will do naught but drive away players.

yeah, max was supposed to be 100M for BOTH node war participation (30M first node war + 50M second node war + 20M for both participation)

Guilds who did multiple node wars during the last week got the second bonus (70M) applied per node war participation that week. Some guilds have gotten up to 400M silver reward for this
