Hm, even if a 60 with 500+ AP/DP is lagging, he can still one shot you.

or desync and all of a sudden you die instantly without him taking damage, lag OP. But damage should be first xD

"miniscule thing" is a matter of perspective. To the complaining party, the "thing" isn't "minuscule". They express themselves thus. To you the "thing" is "minuscule". you express yourself thus. What do you say to this seeming feedback loop? You blame the complaining...does your input contribute the the complaining party stopping to complain? Are you interested in the complaining party stopping their complains? Can you ensure some actions, mechanisms, environmental changes which satisfy the complaining party and as such, people have no more reason to complain? 

Whoo! Words!

No. 

An extension on maintenance is not anything more than a minor inconvenience.

If you find this to warrant this kind of behavior then you are petty and entitled. It is objective. It is not like a loss of personal funds. A faulty ban of your account. Or something much more substantial and worth complaint. Thank you for saying a whole lot of nothing.

No new pearl outfits for Sorc, but you guys release that stupid ranger outfit and dress for tamers...

Because Sorc got a lot last few patches

We did?, because last outfit we got was that really really stupid one with the bear skin cape (Which everyone else got), and before that was papilio which was back in November just before witch/Wiz got their awakening.
Other than that it's been nothing but that hideous masquerade outfit and snowflake, but everyone got those outfits too.

Well maintenance should be done for PST as it's now 12:45 in the afternoon, however I'm having problems accessing the launcher.   I get an error message that say (with NO error code): 

D:\Black Desert Online\Black Desert Online Launcher.exe

"The application has failed to start because it's side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail"

What the heck does this mean? I looked in the app files and found nothing that relates to sxstrace.exe. I'm not computer savvy at all and would really like to get into the game as I do everyday. This just happened this morning and the game launched fine yesterday. I will keep trying though

HELP!!!

As PA designed the event, the items that will be deleted are described as the one below, saying:  *It will magically disappear after the event.

2017-02-28_722206437.thumb.PNG.4c595d8f2

The items without this description will be saved.
The attendance reward list will be updated according to the new event.

PS: Make sure to read the event period right below the list.

 

While for the rookie and returning players the attendance reward list was updated, it hasn't been updated for loyal players ... there are still milk and tea that will magically disappear:

Event items are intended to be removed after the event, simply because they are part of it. Anyway guys, don't forget the One Year Anniversary! 

@CM_Yukimura

I am going to be honest, I am pretty upset that the items got deleted.

Reason why?

Not because they were deleted,but because they were deleted with no warning. I was pretty surprised.

If on patch notes you keep saying that you will delete the items and never delete them , then it will take people by surprise when you finally delete them. ALSO when Event period is Jan. 12 to  Feb. 11 and reward RECEIVABLE period is "Only available until regular maintenance on  February 22nd,2017" , then why delete the items on 1/03/2017 ? This made a snowball effect on the community , because people were saving them because they were too good waste and then you took it all away. 

Suggestion : 

If you are going to delete the items either put a decreasing timer on it , or announce it properly on the forums and/or in-game as well. 

OR

If you really want to keep loyal players playing the game(the game has so much stuff about loyalty), then let people stack those items on the storage. Let me give you an example why letting people stay with the items is a good idea. 

Example : Person A likes to do everything in the game from combat to training life skills and spends most of the time grinding combat. He has (for example) Professional gathering on his main account and beginner 0 gathering on his every alt. His favorite thing to do is combat, but he also likes to do some gathering, so he bottles up his alts character's energy for one day of massive gathering.(NOTE: In this example we are not considering gathering on beginner 0,because that would be inefficient.) So he collect the Warm Milks on his alts and grinds combat in the main character. When he is almost ready to do gathering .The boost get deleted. Player A gets upset. And Player A could potentially quit the game.

I know this example is exaggerated, but I have seen stories of people quitting this game because of some change that did not even affect the player in itself.

NOTE: This post is not to trash the game,but to make people see that a good game can still be improved and trivial things can make a big difference to some.

I agree it doesn't make a lotta sense to give items for an event that must be used up during the event. A timer is very reasonable but having to use it somewhat quickly make me either use the for the heck of it (waste) or don't use them (waste)

Also would be better to say "this item expires on... " in the item description and put specific date.,

A heads up is nice sure but honestly you either use it or don't it basically it is summed up to just that. I don't recall the date they were first handed out, through daily rewards, events etc. but you have weeks to use them if not a whole month or so. They don't need to announce anything really just in patch notes for official use.  I do think a timer would be nice for say it's remaining life span just automatically. It would give those last 24hours or so a chance for last minute use.

Thank you for reinforcing my point and saying, of course, a whole lot of something. Jeez. Was trying to at least attempt a meaningful discussion. ----- you, for your co-operation, human.

That would be all fine and dandy if they were, in fact, consistent, but they're not. Not even remotely. I still have easter eggs and beer from last year that were supposed to be removed, and they weren't. Also have Valentines day stuff from this year that they claimed would be deleted but it hasn't.
