Hey there!

 

Great seeing some new faces here. I'm wishing you all good things and a lot of fun.

Don't get dragged down by the negativity of some people here.

Hopefully there will be more interaction between game developer and players now. Maybe even more transparency? Maybe it is possible for some little explanations for certain changes or why some won't make it? This is what I'm hoping for!

 

Anyways, have a good time!

And so it begins. I've been thinking about what to write in this first message. You know - sleepless nights, bags under my eyes, etc etc. But I think I finally made up my mind and I will just type what my brain is suggesting right now. 

My name is CM_Yukimura, one of the latest additions to the Kakao Games' team. I'll be working as a Community Manager and I am so looking forward to starting this amazing journey with the Black Desert Online tribe. I mean, what an awesome game! Guess I don't need to tell you that? :)

Four things to know about me:
1. Born and raised in Italy, I moved to Amsterdam 2 years ago to chase my dream of working in the gaming industry.
Apparently it worked out!
2. I'm a massive RPG fan, quite obsessed with Final Fantasy
3. I LOVE epic metal, ramen (actually craving one right now) and everything related to the Sengoku period
4. To create my first character on BDO I got inspired by Khal Drogo's look and it took me 4 hours to make him look alike just because, with all the features that the editor has, I couldn't stop refining him. 
Highly addictive..

What about you? Any anecdotes that I need to know?

Ok. Back to fishing now.. Cheers!

pic of your character or it didn't happen imo!

Btw, wEl come.

Hi, I'm goat!

First, congratulation to your first post *cought* position as CM.

My first question: "Is Black Desert p2w?"

Hello goat and thank you so much!

What I'm going to say now is just my personal opinion about this topic.

I'll answer with another question: what do you mean exactly with "win" on p2w? What do you win exactly? Is it more about being the 1st one or experiencing something unique?

I've never played an action-MMO with so many activities like this one, especially considering the price and the amount of time I played without even realizing there was a shop with real cash in-game. (please remember it is just my opinion coming from my personal experience with BDO).

I understand that "in the Western world" competition and PvP come first but here is the point - if you want to compete you look for something that other players might not have. This brings the most competitive players to buy new features and pushing others to follow them as a consequence. So here is my second question: who is pushing more the p2w way? 

Of course that is what devs hope but think about that - if you spend 60 euro for a game beforehand and there are no additional in-game purchases then you will probably assume that the game will end up soon (even if you loved it).

To wrap up: what I think when I play a (rare) MMO like this and I decide to spend money, it is never because something/someone is pushing me, yet because I want to have an active role and support the game itself and everyone behind it for the wonderful job they have made so far. In the meantime you can show your commitments and resources spent in the game and create a healthy competition environment.

First of all - welcome ! 
I hope you are in for some more communication between the Kakao Team & our community compared to what it's like for a couple of months now.. 
Would you be so kind and upload a screen of your masterpiece Khal Drogo? *_* 

GL & HF with your new job :D

 

Welcome!

@CM_Yukimura I really like your Avatar. Just like you I can't stop refining my chars... :)

 

 

 

pic of your character or it didn't happen imo!

Btw, wEl come. 

For those who are asking, here is my "masterpiece"! Joking of course,
just tried my best while using the editor for the first time, I hope you'll like it.

Innanzitutto benvenuto!!! finalmente potrò parlare in italiano almeno qualcuno qui mi capirà.. xP (cosi evito figure con il traduttore). Direi che amsterdam e una delle scelte migliori che tu possa aver fatto nel trasferirti li ad inseguire questo tuo sogno infatti ho conoscenze li che appunto seguivano questo obbiettivo. Infatti non vorrei mai che fossi proprio uno di loro... LOL In ogni caso buona fortuna collega italiano in tutto  e per tutto il tuo percorso... in bocca al lupo... Passa a trovarmi in -game se vuoi che famo 4 chiacchere... Family name: Skiaffati  Character name: ShinigamiDaio ... sono tra i primi in hunting skill... bella bro t'aspetto... xD

 

Ciao carissimo!
Tranquillo non fai figure nessuno è perfetto! purtroppo qui parleremo sempre in inglese ma non devi preoccuparti..

Beh potrei essere una delle tue conoscenze chissà.. Ti ringrazio davvero per il supporto, ho lasciato il nostro amato paese esclusivamente per inseguire il mio sogno, ed è successo tipo il giorno dopo averlo fatto! Questo per dirti insegui sempre cio che ami. o ti perseguiterà a vita!

PS:Ho cercato di aggiungerti ma ho solo trovato con successo "Shinigami" come nome esistente ingame.

A presto!

@CM_Yukimura Finalmente! Un italiano al potere muahahahaha :D

Benvenuti ad entrambi i CM!

 

Ci voleva eh?! Tranquillo i migliori italiani sono sparsi per il mondo per un motivo: conquistare e onorare i nostri antenati!
Muahahahah! 

welcome!

what do you guys think is best for a Valkyrie?

Farm or Cooking?

 

They bring the most powerful and glorious Vikings in the Valhalla, to drink together with Odin!

bugged def against witch/wizard? you do realise Sorc is magic damage as well & i can say for Fact sorc doesnt do any different damage to Tamer..

that's why its bugged, cause tamers don't take more magic damage since sorcs and tamers also do magic damage but they take more damage from witch/wizard and it makes absolutely no logical sense whatsoever and there's no reason in the world to justify how a ranged aoe class does extra damage to the squishiest <melee> class in the game to such a ridiculous level that it literally just 1shots in face with normal skills when geared up , while others take 30-50% less damage 

 

Witch/wizard is overdue for a nerf to non awakened buff to awakened standards our version got from KR & a in general Needed Nerf to some of its awakening skills due to the OP damage

thats unrelated and irrelevant

 

all classes in bdo take the same damage from witch/wizard (not counting passive skills) except tamer, which is bugged and takes increased damage on a ridiculous scale

@CM_Yukimura Guarda io son stra contento per te hai fatto la cosa migliore andartene da qui, io se non fossi figlio unico con una casa pagata e tutto un buon lavoro ecc sarei partito pure io fuori dall'italia.  Ehm cmq... boh strano... Server EU ovviamente e si ShinigamiDaio oppure Ciribino che sono i 2 personaggi main... forse e perchè oggi pomeriggio non ero connesso. a causa (dovrei inviare un ticket anche) di problemi nella connessione... praticamente faccio fatica a connettermi mi lagga tutto ed appena loggo ci mette 5 min a caricare tutto per poi darmi connessione al server persa, ci vogliono svariati tentativi perchè poi rimanga connesso ma anche se cambio personaggio mi fa la stessa cosa... secondo me e un problema di proxy perchè ho cambiato provaider da poco e messo linkem ma vabbe devo (appena posso) inviare un ticket o aprire un tread.

Welcome you two, lovely to see additions to the team after a few had to take their leave last year

My only question for the two of you will be, do you have any plans for adding more and clearer communication between the CM team and the community?

- Starting out after the western release we had Q and A's with both CMs and Devs, to elaborate on some of the gamechages we saw, new content etc. and it gave feeling that the community feedback as actually listened to and heard. Later on this connection felt like it got lost, and frankly after several topics were overreacted uppon by the community, it seemed like the CMs just stopped bothering even trying to open up for communication again.

Then at Gamescom we had the lovely BDO panel, but in German only. I must be honest and say that was such a big let down for me atleast. I would like to get included in the news, the debates, and the hype around new content or whatever it might be. And there are so many different platforms and options. Yet we are stuck in a situation with a community who have the pitchforks ready at the sight of an official post before finish reading it, and CMs only posting patchnotes and barely having a feeling for the community apart from on this sorta messy forum.

Last but not least, a big shoutout to all the BDO streamers on twitch.tv who day after day entertain, showcase and enlight new & old players about BDO and really create a lovely gaming community, those are the unsong heroes who have keep the (twitch) community together where the CMs previously have been lacking.

But heres to a new start, new faces, and new hope. Welcome!

Hello new CM's ;]
You are new so I guess I have to remind you that we all need some good costumes. Chungho for Ninja and Gavi Regan for all male classes, also female costumes like the kitty power ranger one (don't remember the name) and like ranger's Gotha Rensa.

Next Durability bugs for Ninja/Kuno + fixing iframes/front/guard/super armor application of some skills. 

Furthermore, Ninja/Kuno stealth - the description is invalid. I would hope you rather FIX stealth rather than change description. It says we should be immune to damage while in stealth and damage shouldn't take us out of stealth. This way we could be the better class for Node Wars and Mass PVP as at the moment any skills is getting us out of stealth and our movement speed in stealth is making it ridiculous.

S+F - Other classes have super armor or front guard on their strong hitting abilities - we don't WHY?

Shift+F -> Bigger chance for floating as it's way too low.

NINJAS/KUNOS DON'T NEED BUFFS SO DON'T GET ME WRONG! We just need these fixes and good costumes. 
Then we will be able to have a proper contest when you release 3v3 arenas or some more pvp content.
