Patch Notes - February 15th 2017

397 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Good day devs,  I'm just wondering if I am misunderstanding how the new "Daily" is supposed to be working, or if there's something going on with my game, as well as my better halfs.  

He and I both are only receiving the "old" daily screen showing when the game comes up, which he and I cannot collect anything from.  So since the patch Wednesday, we haven't received any daily log on bonus rewards- even after downloading the hot fix, other than the loyalty/lantern and grinding buff. 

Also for some reason since the patch my game keeps crashing immediately after trying to load it for the first time.  Usually after it does the initial crash, it runs just fine.

I'm not sure if I need to put a ticket in for this, or if posting it here is enough.

Who's idea was it to make attendance rewards automatically claimed on whichever character you are on at reset or when you login?

I don't want all my attendance rewards on my AFK horse trainer/fishing toon... I want them on my main without having to run to a storage to swap the item between toons... This seems such an useless change.

Also the fact that the loyal attendance rewards are no longer obtainable but still visible is really a way how to say "Lol look at all these awesome rewards that you WILL NEVER EVER GET HAHAHAHA", Yeah, thanks... <.< Either make us have them or just remove that menu, or replace it with a new set of loyal rewards?

 ^

my log in rewards have been broken since patch, i'm actually unable to collect the last day, day 35, which i WOULD have gotten on the 14th, but you know, broken patch yielded nothing but "attendance event error" BS then hotfix no change hotfix at the msg stops coming up but you schmucks still broke it.

also, i'd like to note

Looking into it now, if the function is not currently working it will be removed from the patch notes. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.

first and foremost i'd like to ask for an official statement on coherent ui cpu runaways, memory leaks, random dc's, game crashes and lockups, desync, and the multitude of other issues that seem to have been here SINCE BETA that have yet to be worked out.

then i'd like to ask on when they'll be fixed as i KNOW you are all already working very hard on this, right? RIGHT?

lastly, i want to know what compensations will be issued (as in in-game items / rewards, etc) for all the PAYING CUSTOMERS you're pissing off by sheer NEGLIGENCE and not give a FU-- about the people keeping you employed.

 

had an additional thought:

what the hell is coherent ui and why do you even need it?

A) played legit thousands of other games and not a one had this process (let alone 2 that runaway with up to 25% of my 6 core cpu EACH completely at effing random - like immediately upon login, or after being online 3 hours)
B) if you fixed this clunky ass, laggy, sometimes unresponsive ui, you wouldn't even need it.

you are lucky then, since the update, several time in a row ( after starting the game ) the coherent UI go crazy and 2 of thoses process use like 15% cpu each... 9_9

The Black Spirit quest has been completely reworked for levels 1 to 50

Certain rewards from the forcibly completed quests, such as weapon box or sub-weapon box will be rewarded via in-game mail.

And you could AT LEAST have inform us that the reward received by mail was for the WHOLE account, so all character, instead of mail reward PER character.

Without know that i have opened all the serendia outfit thing with my tamer, so now, i have 7 outfit on her instead of 1 outfit for each of my other class >:(

Is there anyway to go back to the old black spirit ui? Or not have unaccepted quests appear in the new singled out quest tab :/

I think the only way to make people happy in this game is to stop complete movement forward and go back and fix all of the issues. Plus their free stuff they aren't getting... wait... Nope that wouldn't make them happy either. "Shrugs"

[Event]
  • The ‘Play Your Way!’ event has returned! Players can enjoy an increased drop rate for Black Stone (Weapon / Armor), Sharp & Hard Shards, and Ancient Relic Crystals!

    • Start: 2/15/2017

    • End: 3/8/2017
       

Combat Reward:

  • Players must kill monsters for an increased chance to be rewarded with Black Stone (Armor / Weapon) drops.

Gathering Reward:

  • Players must utilize gathering skills for an increased chance to be rewarded with either Sharp or Hard Black Crystal Shards.
     

Fishing Reward:

  • Players must fish for an increased chance to be rewarded with an Ancient Relic Crystal Shard.

 

Hi,

This event may not be working properly.

While autofishing, I'm getting 3-6 ancient relic cristal shards per 7-9 hours. It's the same amount or event less than in normal time. (Fishing Master 7)

While gathering, I'm getting 1-2 sharp/hard shards after using a 250 tool. Same conclusion. (Gathering Master 4)

During the last "enhanced loot" event :

7-12 ancient relic cristal shards

3-4 sharp/hard shards

Actually, it worked the first 2 days but after a small patch (on friday or saturday) it stopped.

@Players : Are you experiencing the same issues?

@Team : Could you look into this?

Same for me. Droprate of A/W Stones is totally broken on Main, Alt has increased Drops. Hard/Sharps dont drop at all anymore on both.

Only some players Are seeing actual rewards for the Play Your Way event! The rest of us aren't getting jack from harvesting. Some players are seeing up to 10 per hour while others might be lucky to see one every 4 hours. Please investigate and fix!

i got  1 every 4-5 min like you say by gathering wood.

But you must know that i have 5 luck all the time and i gather every tree in 1.6 sec (this is a lot of tree /min)  using magic gathering tool.

 

You have to increase your chance yourself aswell.

Don't sit on your standard gathering tool / no Luck and think you will get a lot.

Its working. Just because you might have bad rng does not mean that something isn't working.

Ill explain stuff to you.

First fishing master or what ever your level is, IS IRRELEVANT to relic drops. Only thing that matters is fishing speed. More casts more chances of getting relics. Event was never meant to have extremely high chance of getting relics. Increase is like 1-2% which means you should be getting 1-2 two extra relics and if you're not its just bad rng

Same goes with gathering. Level is irrelevant.

Also you didn't mention the blackstones but ill put it here too. There is drastic increase of getting them just like last time. Im getting 30-50 Blackstones in total per 2-3 hours and once again in this kill speed matters most

Well attendance reward is becoming a common problem this days.

Its not wise to take away a reward that all the players are counting for. Just give us new attendance rewards and all of this fuss will be over.

Might you consider to change system with buying pets on market or other pearl shop items, For 2 months i am trying to buy a pet on market and still not able to get one. That is just a bad system for me, why? not all of us are born lucky.

lol bad RNG, are you suggesting that we should buy more pearls to improve our bad RNG? ...off topic. Anyway, I agree with OP...I'm getting less hards and sharps on all of my toons than before the event and I've changed nothing to my gathering routine. It's so bad that I decided to just burn up all energy on night vendor...better chances of getting hards and sharps than gathering as things are now. This happened on the last "event" as well. Since you brought it up, 30-50 blackstones in 2-3 hours? hmmm...zerker spin to win at sausans...JK (sorry, but to get that many blackstones...seems that someone went all piggy wiggy on an area) but I agree, blackstones have been dropping at an increased rate as the event suggests...just not hards and sharps and this goes for a lot of players I've spoken to.

I'll answer your rng arguments :

- Fishing : 7-9 hours with + 4 fishing (guild perk + costume + pet), pinguin pet (increases auto-fishing speed) so I'm talking about using a +8 Epheria fishing rod = 130 uses max. Using 110-120 during this time. Fishing rank isn't involved, indeed.See at bottom.

- Gathering : http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/43005-effective-gathering/&page=4, according to Saronic (highest gathering lvl and former gm of the Wealth guild on Croxus) rare item droprate increases after reaching Master rank, I'm not saying that it's an absolute truth but that's what his guildies observed and so did I. RNG will still be involved for sure but I'm talking about getting 1-2 shards / shining tool (250 uses) and I use something like 3 tools with a 289 energy base (thanks to my gathering rank : the highest rank, the less energy you use, warm milk and beers).

- Grinding : I'm not talking about blackstones because I'm not focusing on these so I don't have any data. Actually, I have too many of them so I'm not interested.

You're saying that "Increase is like 1-2%". I'm really interested in your source. Could you link it please?

=> For me, there's no increased droprate for relics and shards this time. As I said, during these events I focused on gathering and afk fishing only. I've almost stopped grinding, afk horse leveling, afk autopathing with backpack and afk processing.

What's you're experience with that please? You talked about blackstone drops but I can't see what you got during gathering and fishing during both events.

Edit : when considering tool uses, gathering/fishing rank matters. A high rank will spare some uses so with a 250 tool at my rank I'll gather something like 275 times. Same with fishing rods.

Today : seems to work, 14 relics this night and 15 during work time. I'll gather some fur with "normal" tools not lucky ones to check shard drop rate (=> 2 knives = 7 shards, seems to work again. I hope it will last).

As a returning player, I highly dislike the "reworked" main storyline.

I would like to meet the absolute beginners behind this change and see what kind of gamers they are. Quesline is now easier to complete ? Was it hard before ? There is no more Jordine/Belmont, and on my DK level up, I didn't even speak with Bartali, Edan and Jarette in Olivia, no more quests from Jarette in the Western Camp. I also missed tons of quests in each hub (I guess the "rework!" button has been pressed too many times). I also noticed way too many quests giving you exp points. 

The GREAT thing about the old storyline was the blending of you personal story and the ones of the world. Not to mention that now, at lvl 49 you don't get Belmont, but a Giant Catfishman that you basically never met before. Fighting Belmont was a perfect "level up" quest. Was rooted in the main storyline AND with your own progression.

What a fail.
