Thanks for not reading the MANY warnings that popped up to get to a safe spot and put away your mounts before the server went down.

Morons, nobody told me anything I must have been logged out before there was any such thing?  Of course thats never possible is it.    Smart gaming companies move characters when mergers happen because of this type of stupid stuff.

I'd explain to you what smart players would do but clearly you wouldn't understand

No you are absolutely right, had I know there was a merger happening I would of logged out somewhere else.     However I didn't even hear about it before I logged out.    So I went about playing the way I usually do.      

 

 

Despite all that, even had I known.     This type of thing is their responsibility.     If they are going to do things that causes peoples transportation to move, it is on them to move the players to the location of their transportation.       Its just silly to move one but not the other.

I feel like we have very very very very very very very very very very very different understandings of what the term "Epic Fail" means.

Its not like you can't swim without drowning to literally anywhere.

There was a message all over the screen everytime you logged on for like two days before the merge. It was also on the forums and the main page of the game.

Not to mention the couple of message that came in the mail or all the people in chat talking about it. I am sorry OP, but if you are that oblivious of what is going on in the game, you have no one to blame but yourself.

Fail.  They put it everywhere.  I mean everywhere, for weeks.  So swim, put in a ticket, or hit escape.   Actually just whine some more, its kinda funny.

Greetings,

I'm so sorry to hear that you got stuck without your boat.

Like someone posted above, you can ask a GM to move your character at a certain place.

You can submit a ticket here: https://blackdesert.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

I hope this helps your current issue.

There is also a transport feature I believe. You have to be logged out of your character for one hour to have the character transferred.
Unfortunately I'm not entirely certain it'll work for random islands, so I apologize in advance if that doesn't fix your issue.

Otherwise, it's already been stated. Open up a ticket, Kakao's response time has improved considerably but we did just have a merge, and they did ask you beforehand to get somewhere safe. On a more personal note, I think they did an awesome job considering the difficulties I'm sure they ran into to merge all servers together.

Or just stay on the island, find a floating soccer ball, and repeatedly yell "Wilson!" until rescued.

To sum up the OP "Waaaah, Kakao is stupid! Utter trash! because I couldn't be bothered to read or use my brain. Waah".

Sorry, Kakao isn't here to hold your hand through everything. There was a plethora of information regarding the merge for weeks in advanced. Unless you live under a rock you knew it was coming. Whether you bothered to look anything up or not is on you. Not Kakao.

I'm sorry to hear that you ended up stranded on some island without your boat, here's a few things you can do to leave the island: 
- Ask a friend/guildie to pick you up with their boat
- Ask someone to PK you, and then respawn at a town
- Contact support and see if they're able to help you, although you will probably have to expect a long response time as they're busy with higher prioritized cases right now
- Swim from island to island until you reach your final destination

I do have to advise you to pay more attention to the messages they're sending out in the future though, as most of the time they contain important information to avoid having players getting into similar situations to yours ^_^

They even sent out an email last night, in case you weren't on for weeks or looking at the forums/website. There really is no excuse to not know we had a merge happening. :/

Despite all that, even had I known.     This type of thing is their responsibility.

They had posts on the forums, they had in game messages, they had the splash screen on login containing this info literally popping up in your face, they sent mail about it, and the day before they were almost spamming the system message about it.  This isn't even considering common/guild/channel chats talking about it. You would have had to go out of your way to avoid knowing there was a merge coming - which if you ignored all the warnings they put in your face, is completely your fault. You can choose to remain ignorant by ignoring that stuff, but it's not someone else's fault when it bites you in the ass.
