  I also would like to give a shout out @GM_Caramel for keeping the community updated and ensured us that the BDO Staff Team will be taking care of the situation thus defusing the tense situation that was generated.  Her professionalism and kindness is what everyone should aspire to become and demonstrated the perfect way to treat members of the community! 

Thank you so much for the kind comments! :x Like I previously said I genuinely care about all of you. I want to try to better your guys' game experience with us. 

Thanks for the quick reply! and thanks @GM_Caramel for everything earlier when this all started ^^

Of course! You guys called me so I showed up! ^_^ 

I just wanted to jump in and thank the CM/GM team for reviewing this and confirming either way what was up, i enjoy the speedy response to the issue

can i request that bug like the Mae/Musa chase and cancels is now looked into and hopefully fixed just as fast  :)

@GM_Caramel @GM_Dew @CM_Aethon

This is actually something we are aware of and investigating. :) No ETA on any updates though! 

@GM_Caramel @GM_Dew @CM_Aethon thx for the infor 

thanks to the GM team for communicating with us, it's nice to not feel neglected for once.

No problem! Thank you guys for supporting us! 

Kudos to @GM_Caramel for doing an amazing job at crisis management. I will admit this is the first time in the past few months where I actually had faith in the future of the game. 

Indeed, her and GM_Dew have been amazing, and then this post + the twitter saying they donated to the Red Nose Day foundation cause of this.

https://twitter.com/BDO_News/status/786918333992042496

It's been a long time coming, but guys, if you keep this up, things are going to look a lot brighter around here.

We appreciate your kind comments! I will let Dew know what you said! We love you guys!!! :x

As many others have said, please make sure we don't get a 2nd red nose armor.

Getting two red nose armors would be horribly disappointing. You would be dashing our hopes a 2nd time.

I agree. Afterall you got one from previous box so if you rolled rednose in a fixed box you should get nothing or a blackstone to make it fair and square. :)) The box was supposed to give you a random boss armor, not a boss armor + rednose bonus.

I agree, remove the red nose boss armor from the new fixed box that should quiet down people of North America.

Thank you :)

Was worried for a while as to how you would go about fixing this, but it seems i was worried for nothing! Hopefully I'll get something useful from the replacement box, but i am still grateful for the Red Nose Armor, because i will add it to my collection of 'fashionables' that i use for my screenshots ^_^ 

Thanks again <3

As a company that needs some good will the right thing to do would make sure there was no red nose in the box they give us after Nov. 2. Try and make the loyal player base happy for a change. They sure need to do something to show that they care.

You mean 2 Red Nose Armor. They are SCAMMERS don't thank them. Always something wrong with this icompetent company.

This must be your first mmo or you have completely forgotten all the years of screwing up blizzard has done >_>

Corrupted Blood comes to mind here. Not to mention all the completely broken crap (especially healers early on) cataclysm brought, years of not being able to log in and lag, lets not forget the "Instance not found" bug that went on for 2 xpacs and still pops up every now and then. Just to name a few of the many many issues Warcraft has had over the years.

If you are expecting any mmo/game to be bug free and perfectly balanced you are living in a dream world.

yall seriously need to chill.

They have to get a fix from the developer on the box itself, then they will send us another box.

They cant send what they dont have. Be dam happy theyre even gonna fix the error.

Players like you need a time out.

Thank you

Been playing since EU launch - even did the Beta weekend things.

I know that the game is mostly RNG, doesn't mean thats not shit.

And it especially doesn't mean that the attendance rewards have to be like that as well.

thanks for your resume, pretty sure most people have played since beta so it's really irrespective of the fact that it's RNG just like everything else in BDO. Where they didn't need to implement a attendance reward at all. 

 

 

Its okay that the boxes with items of different rarities have different chances of being obtained. But this boss armor box is items of equal rarity, even though some are more sought after than others. So in this case it should have been 1/5 chance to obtain either - but it wasn't. It was clearly 96% chance of getting Red Nose and 1% chance of each of the others. That's i not ok.

did you read this post at all? The reason they are re delivering the boxes is because of that percentage. Not really sure what your argument here is... they realized it was broken and are fixing it... they are all equally as rare items red nose is just considered trash because it's missing 200hp lol makes sense right.

I agree, remove the red nose boss armor from the new fixed box that should quiet down people of North America. 

pretty sure EU is complaining just as much as NA here. Although I won't complain if the new box does not contain red nose :)

- extended maintenance - happens

- emegerency maintenance - happens

- servers since maintenance compeltly shit. more desync, lagg since ever. - pls

- rng boss item box is not random.

Red nose debacle was to hide the fact that they nerfed enchanting success rates on boss loot to sell more artisan memories.

I love all the rage at getting a red nose box, or even the chance at getting a second red nose. It's free deal with it. They don't even have to do the attendance rewards, just be glad they give us anything. And everyone demanding compensation for the servers being down longer than usual are just impatient pricks. One time buy, there is no requirement to keep playing because your not purchasing it every month. The company that puts it out for EU/NA is not the one that released it for KA if I'm not mistaken. They are given the patches from KA to EU/NA and have to implement them. They don't get time to test, they just get told what to release. If you have a problem with the way the game is run, stop playing, there will always be others who will continue to play regardless.

Thanks for your resume my arse, only reason I mentioned it was because you suggested I hadn't even been playing a month.

Secondly, they implemented an attendance reward to boost player stats, which in turn brings in new players. So, irrespective of if they HAD to or not, they chose to and, in that established an agreement that, for logging in for 30 days, you would get a piece of boss armour. The fact that they -----ed it up means that they were unable to come through on that agreement, and I don't know if you've ever used Rednose, but its shit.

Free = getting it without doing anything in return

We had to log in for 30 days to get it, therefore providing them with better server statistics and cash shop purchases, therefore it is not free.

Greetings adventurers,

We have investigated the reports of users having received only a single item type from the Attendance Reward 'Boss Armor Box'. At this time it appears the item is not functioning as intended, we are taking the necessary steps to correct this issue. Players that received one of the defective boxes will be issued a new fixed version at the end of the event.

Please note you will only receive the second box if you had already claimed the defective attendance reward by the end of the event, in addition to this we will not be removing any of the rewards earned by the original box.  Please note that you must claim and open the original box prior to November 2nd or it will disappear.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you and thank you for understanding.

Please take Red Nose Armor out of the box then. I really don't want 2.

i bet the majority of you did not buy cash shop items, you are only making yourself look worse, it was free especially since all you had to do was log in once press a few buttons and log out doing nothing more. if you decided to buy things thats on you but you cant use it here as an example acting like you were required to do it in order to get the reward box

As long as you're eligible for the first box (i.e., trigger the ability to pick it before Oct. 26th, and actually pick it before November 2nd) you're good.

You've got well over a week of missed days (12 days) to spend so for most people it's not a concern at all.

Is the money you get from going to work free money?

I mean, you only have to show up and do some things everyday, so I guess you shouldn't complain about getting your pay cut?
