What's the real reason behind merge?

Ok so the new server is proportionally the same size as the 3 server we have now? If so it makes more sense

Yes, there will be 36 channels but there will be the same amount of node war channels.  So every guild will be funneled there during node war time.

ya mean worse cuz of the lag. if they cant handle the desync on three seperate servers how do you expect on one server? 

Megaservers actually cause less stress on servers, not more. This is because channels can be added/removed depending on population, and can be hosted on different servers in clusters if need be, and can be swapped between servers

Also, this game was originally intended to be a megaserver from the start (RU, KR, JP, BDO is a megaserver in every other region), but the original NA players wanted more servers, so we didn't start out as a megaserver.

I do want to point out that the megaserver is what made BDO KR as popular as it is today, it sparked new wars, rivalries, etc, and caused more people to play in the end.

Because the percent of players that actively PvP is very small?  And so the same 4 guilds don't end up swapping regions every week?

you have no definitive proof that it will cause less stress we all just know we got 1 big server and we don't know the capabilities of said server cuz were waiting for it. im assuming its going to be the same experience as the ones we got for the past half year. with that said im ASSUMING it would get worse from here on out because of the population and lack of motivation that pa is going to offer us for better quality in terms of in-game stability cuz lets face it they're already milking this game like its nothin and its headed towards becoming f2p at this point ($5 for this game is already a sign).

What lol.  THAT IS THE REASON.  The game originally was going to be one server.  Korea merged to one server, RU merged to one server.....

Use your head.  It was going to happen here and honestly had nothing to do with population which is what you seem to think it has to do with.  Take your tinfoil hat off.

 

PS I believe nothing the gov says lol.

RU BDO launched with Mega servers............ NA/EU BDO was voted against a Mega server by the old playerbase and at the time the publisher said they would still keep a mega server in the works for NA/EU

I am using my head. You're not using your head because you give me the impression that you take all public announcements at face value like you just clearly demonstrated. 

Lol? Not everything is conspiracy, some things are actually as they seem. You probably thought that the world was going to end in 2012, right?

Erm BDO is B2P it's basically free2Play

 

Also Pearl Abyss is teaming up with Silicon studio or what ever that Japanese company is called to better graphics

Lots of revisionist history going on here. People either not around at the time or have bad memories.

KR and RU were mega-servers at the time we were in beta. But they had crap performance. Many faulted the Megaserver. JPN was still 3 separate servers. Many here were worried about performance, hence pushing for separate ones. KR popularity was way down at the time as well, many blamed the server merger. It has since rebounded and doing well.

We can speculate why KR was down at the time, if it was even related to the merger or not. It doesn't really matter. Water under the bridge and all that.

Because all the "hardcore l33t" PvPers need node wars to fill the void in their lives.

You get laid with that DP? Or just enjoy being watched by FBI?

Merge is because that whats the devs have done in ALL regions, because believe it or not unlike most of your potatoes Tech has moved on and new/updated games take advantage of it.

 

Stop with your -----ing tin foil hats ffs

Go read the new world thread they literally tell you in the first paragraph.

I swear.

 

And since you probably wont because I have a feeling you cant figure it out.

 

  • One World, One Server
    Players in different servers will now be living on the same server if they are in the same region. Experience the authentic open world where everyone in the same region will call home.
  • Ever More Fierce Siege Wars
    Now that everyone will break free from server boundaries, many reputable guilds can compete for nodes or territories. Expect creative strategies from enemies you have never met before.
  • Revitalization of In-Game Economy
    The economy system of Black Desert Online greatly benefits from an active interaction between combat and life contents. With the New World, a single Marketplace will cater a greater number of players, therefore housing an enormous collection of items registered by all the players in the region.

In my opinion:

All which supports there is not enough players now to support a viable / interesting / engaging / profit returning game.

Kakao needs to wake up to the fact NA and EU players HATE the amount or level of RNG in this game. Especially the gear upgrading RNG. If they toned the RNG down you'd find a lot more people active in more aspects of the game.

You see most players hate the RNG because the game is designed as a money sink. A 1 step forward and 2 steps back game. Unless you're a billionaire with a massive amount of passive income if you're like me, the failures and costs in upgrading doesn't generate happiness and good feelings.

Billionaires with millions in passive income a day obviously wouldn't care that much about RNG. What 100 million on Mem Fragments when you'll have that back with one nights sleep? Bugger all right.

Ease up on the RNG, work a way to drain money out of the system another way and I think you'll find a lot more engaging and populated servers.

I love the game, in fact I could see this as the only game I would play for years and years. I would however not recommend the game to anyone in it's current form.

I know there's a counter argument to what I've said, and there may well be something I'm missing in the way I think about the game and my approach to it.

Anyway they are my thoughts at the moment.

Peace.

Only a very low % care about that broken pvp, so they needed to merge the server to have something that look like a healthy "pvp scene"
