New World - Megathread

790 posts in this topic

Posted

Greetings All,

There have been many discussions regarding the New World Announcement, many with good questions being presented inside of them, alongside several new threads being created of a similar nature. I'll be combining them into a single thread, for ease of access so our staff can read and gather questions, while helping prevent some of the confusion that is inevitably generated on such active topics. We ask that you present any further discussions or questions inside of this thread to aid in this process.

Below you will find a link to a FAQ that has been prepared to answer a good portion of the questions that we believed you fine folks would be asking. We of course expect there will be many more presented, and we'll be doing our best to field answers to them as quickly as possible. Please note this can take some time as we present batches of questions from several languages to our developers and back.

FAQ: http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/119305-faq-the-new-world/

As always we appreciate your insight as we continue to move forward with Black Desert Online!

Update:

With such a large number of questions in our original FAQ I've gone ahead and updated it to include a table of contents linking to the appropriate section of the post, which will hopefully make it easier to sort through.

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.



Come on. People jsut logged on other servers for rewards from the Events. 
From my point that is hard unfair and exploiting. 
Sure they should get all items they farmed on the servers, but event rewrads should be unique.

THERE HAS BEEN LOTS OF PEOPLE DOING THIS.
They made characters across servers. Logged in daily, get loyalty, get attendance reward, get everything.
When this is confirmed, and we have Lauren Coins running till roughly the end of Nov. 
There might be MORE AND MORE people, stay AFK in each server 5 hours a day. 
Then 3X rewards.
Is it an exploit? Definitely NO, because when the BASE IS LARGE ENOUGH, they WON'T CONSIDER IT EXPLOIT.
So deal with it.

You should post this some more, the other 2 times were not enough. What about thinking for yourself next time? ;) The events were server based, so it was intended that you could get them on multiple servers. It would have been region based otherwise.

What is the advantage of doing that btw ?

if your account have characters accross 3 servers, you then cant exchange item from server to another server ( so character to another character ) .. so... ?

there will be server merger so you get all items across servers, got it ?

Did you not have the chance to login and play on another server? Wasn't that your choice not to do it? It's not unfair at all, you were all just too lazy or unable to think for yourself, and now you cry.

It was even posted on this forum for everyone to know, everyone had the opportunity to prepare. If you didn't want to make the effort that is your problem.

Cheers ^_^ 

EDIT: official confirmation that, lo and behold, people were actually allowed to play on all the available servers.

It is not considered an exploit if players benefit from having played on several servers prior to the server merge.

 
EDIT2: More rolling in:

Since creating characters on different servers has never been an exploit in any kind and was available to everyone, we will not consider getting those rewards as an exploit.

 

We understand that some players may gain from this, but everyone had an equal chance to obtain them. We will therefore not compensate the players who did not participate on multiple servers.

Best regards,
GM Dew

omg omg omg Q.Q... everyone knew that this will happen sooner or later, everyone had the chance to do it as well so its not an exploit. Some people did it and are going to get an advantage out of it, and some people like me, that knew it but didn't even bother. Its funny how people cry about literally everything.

If people from other servers will have multiple boss gear, who the fk cares? People doing bosses on a daily basis and get bossgear as well, guess what they did something for it. Now people getting the same from the box from different servers, and... they did something for this as well. They won't have a huge advantage because of this.

Okay just to put this thing into perspective.

  • 3k loyalties per month
  • 2x  30daily login rewards (boss armor box, penguin, glasses etc)
  • Sharps and Hards for 1 loyalty
  • Beers for 1 loyalty
  • Additional 2x lvl 55 and beforehand rewards (+- 200milion)
  • other stuff and i already forgot about

If someone did it i expect 1 bil or above money for using this mechanic.

I'm sorry to say I missed the boat on claiming rewards on additional servers, and even tho I struggle to see it as an exploit, the created gap is huge.  It exceeds a billion sliver in value, and a ton of loyalty (which translates to a significant sum of RL cash) so it'd be nice to see the field levelled a bit before the merge (to mollify the inevitable backlash). 

It certainly wouldn't be fair to delete or deny access to played characters and gear, but it's undeniably a cynical move to log on other servers simply for rewards - so perhaps an additional event or opportunity for those who haven't previously claimed those particular login & boss rewards might be fair?

I fear without even a token gesture for those who missed out, the resentment will bring yet more harm to the game.

I'm pretty broad shouldered all in all, but to be told "like it or lump it" when I've missed out simply by playing the game the way it was intended, will dishearten even me.

So it comes to give aprox 1.5kkk advantage + tons of loyality for people who didn't actually play the game on other servers (just logged in for a minute). I do not find it fair in any way and also call it exploit.

You ppl are just a bunch of scum. Yes it might be comon knowlege - still it is a srsly bad decission to do it.

Gamebreaking! A slap to every player who dont want to bypass or exploit a system... u think it is srsly intendet by them that ppl did this? They may not ban u but they should not support this kind of action.

We keep working on reducing desync / lag issues and predictions are, that the merge will not affect performance negatively.

It is not considered an exploit if players benefit from having played on several servers prior to the server merge.

Alright, it's official folks. ^_^
