If you really want to be angry, focus it at the hordes of people who cried and cried about a megasevrer to begin with. The playerbase had a sh*t fit and Kakao (Daum at the time) gave them what they asked for, multiple servers. The megaserver thing as we are getting in a couple days should have been that way from day 1.

The game really would not have been worth the price with a megaserver.  It is barely worth it as it is though the lowest tier cost dropping to $10 might just barely make it worth it (the game has FtP cash shop prices and everything so it makes little sense to put up a paywall to start with).

They are so incredibly cheap to only give six slots per server after having 18 across the three servers.  The megaserver will be so boring compared to the flexibility of three that I will spend far less time on BDO, and I think a lot of others will too for the same reason.

 

 

They let that situation drag on for the entire time the game was active with no comment on it whatsoever and then want to say "oh, my bad, time to take two thirds of your characters away and most of the flexibility too" and not expect people to feel betrayed by them?  Absolutely ridiculous. I am never going to buy a game by this backstabbing chickenshit outfit again.

@CM_Aethon @CM_Praballo When will node wars and sieges be re-enabled? Will we be able to participate in a node war the same day the merge ends?

@GM_Dew
About duplicated knowledge, the highest rank will take precedent right? And what's the ranking order? C < B < A < S < A+ ?
Is A+ (orange) better than S (yellow) or the other way around? I've been deleting my S's and tried to get A+ :D

Also while we are at it, how do you delete knowledge of trade items that we got C's on so we can try to get A+?
 

S rank knowledge is better than A+.

Not all knowledge can be deleted.

What happens to boats? I have 6 in Heidle on my home server. Will they all get checked in and I can just take them all out again? They're all full of goodies lol

Yes, all boats will be automatically checked into the nearest Wharf.

Best regards,
GM Dew

Server merges are inevitable. I don't think I've played an MMO yet that didn't eventually merge servers. And how anyone has time to PLAY 3 servers I don't know. I barely manage it on one server, there are only so many hours in a day. Oh wait, nvm, I know how................................ smh

It is realy fun to see all those ''unprepared'' whiners lose their shit, behaving like children who didnt get the present they wanted and trowing tantrums.

DON'T be such sour humans by demanding you should be compensated for your own lack of foresight and common sense! just my 2cts.

3. What will happen to players with warehouses across multiple servers?

All warehouses will be merged based on region. Even if the total number of items a player keeps in storage exceeds 192 slots (which is the maximum capacity), each of the items that exceed the limit will be merged into the same Town's Warehouse. The items will show up in order of the time they were stored; the newest one first, and the oldest one last. As items are taken out of the warehouse, any items in the overflow slots will move into normal accessible slots.

You will not be able to put more items in your warehouse if it already has all available slots filled.

If you have expanded your warehouse on multiple servers and the combined slots would exceed 192 slots for a specific warehouse, you will be refunded the exact amount of pearls spent for those slots.

***************************

@GM_Dew

Does it also mean that warehouse Silver will be merged or is it item specific? :3

I have over 700 million tied up in investment banking, and i cant stop the workers in time. Please look into this so i dont lose the gold. The quote from the FAQ sais that the marketplace value of the items the workers carry will be returned in storage, however gold bars have no marketplace value. Please GMs look into this in time. I am attaching some links of 2 of my workers, a 400 mil one, and a 200 mil one as proof.

1. Question

If my Home-Server A have less Contribution Points, than a second server B. Could it happen that i end up with less Cobtribution Points i had on Server B after the merge?

Something like 150 on HomeServer, 310 on Server B.

2. Question

What will happen to Account Quests?

Poor guy, looks like your question got lost under all the tears and salt on this thread ;)  To answer your question:

15. What happens to contribution for players with characters across multiple servers?

If a player has characters across multiple servers, the last server you log into before the maintenance on November 30th will be designated as your “Home Server”. The Contribution Points from the Home Server are kept, and the Contribution Points from the rest of the servers are converted into Contribution EXP, and get merged into the Home Server.

Just to be clear this means, if Server A has 10 Contribution, and Server B has 10 Contribution, they will not simply just be added up to become 20.

Any contribution rental items on servers other than your Home one will be automatically removed and the Contribution Points will be refunded. Those points will then be converted in Contribution EXP and added to your Home Server.

Long story short, no matter which server becomes your "home-server" you will end up with the same amount of contribution points.  Let's call the amount of contribution on Server A value "x" and on server B vale "y".  x+y and y+x gives you the same value :)  Hope that answers your question.

Server merges are usually handled in a much better manner than this one, usually active character slots are simply added together or at least a compromise of some kind is offered.  With BDO it is worse since there is the paywall to even start the game which leaves people with a sadly low entertainment budget (not uncommon with the economy still not fully recovered) with severe draconian limitations on playability.

And the way to have a lot of characters on different servers is to not play the entire cast every day, and have some specialized ones "play" on their own by afk fishing or whatever.  Not everyone is a hardcore determined to play all their characters to the top end as quickly as possible.  Roleplayers often have characters that are played with certain other people or in certain situations which do not come up everyday, like I have one who I only played for a few hours on weekends because that was a group character and that group could only get together at that time.  I have another one (well, actually two, one on each of two servers) who is partnered with someone who only plays a few hours a few days a week and the only way to keep any consistency with that situation is to use that one only in the same sessions.  Too many game companies seem to have the stupid idea that all players are super-aggressive pimple faced no-lifes living in their parents basements with nothing to do all day but use one or two high level super equipped characters to gank everyone else.

That's not an exploit.

No that's not an exploit. Wish I would have had 1 alt on each server from the start. Would have around 8 more pets coming over and like 80k loyalty. + all the black spirit items and other event items. At least I was smart enough to make 1 alt this week to get all the past rewards in the mail. Will have like 45 gm blessings now.

What happens if you have pearl outfits on all your characters and you're forced to delete one because of ya'll not expanding character slots? Will I be refunded the pearls or somehow get the outfit/underwear/accessories unbound so they can be re-utilized on another character?

They said earlier if you had duplicate or unusable pearl items to submit a ticket.

She answered this in another thread Cat. Thinking it was the mega server thread.

The maintenance schedule has now been posted. You can find it here: https://www.blackdesertonline.com/news/view/274

Siege and nodewars will be reactivated again right after the maintenance.

Best regards,
GM Dew

They don't have it on the main FAQ, and I'm not digging through 72 pages to look for it. They should update the main FAQ with answers like that.

UPDATE: The character deletion timer of 10 minutes was not yet implemented, but will be during the maintenance of 7 December. So currently it is still a 24 hour deletion confirmation time.
