4 minutes to pass the black screen after the logo at launch ... Are you serious? I was happy cause from last patch it went down a lot in time, being less than a minute and now 4?!

Stop scanning my ram and just launch the game seriously, it's private first and secondly it's annoying.

Yes totally self entitlement... Just look at the posts here. People who joined after january pretty much already have 500 house fame so they actually have nothing to work on this event. Veterans are well past 1000 points so they have nothing to work on either. But people who recently returned are in the same field than new players (500-600 house fame) and they are the only ones who have to work their ass off (going from 0 to 500 is not the same thing than going from 500 to 1000, I can tell you). Does that make any sense? Totally makes you feel welcome to play again...

I'm pretty sure this is wrong.  The DK bonus XP event ended today with server maintenance.  It was supposed to have 20% during the week, 100% during the weekend, and end after one week.  No new xp event has been announced.  The combat xp weekend event ended in Feb.  We're looking, as far as I can tell, at zero xp bonus even on the weekends outside of the Olvia servers, for those who can access them.

Well darn, I joined at launch but didnt play much and came back month ago and my house fame is below 500, rip. D:

So if you left the game 1 month after launch and came back recently you are still considered a loyal player (though you obviously were not loyal) and has to reach 600 points (which is super high when in the end you only played for a few weeks since launch) only to consider the minimal reward.

Way to screw your returning players. Why not place these with the rookies? Thanks for nothing, I guess.

You seem like the type that logs in just to get rewards, sells the account after it reaches a certain value, wash, rinse, repeat. Play the game and this is not something you have to worry about. There are 2 action mmo's worth mentioning (Black Desert and Tera) so its not like the choices are hard. These are the only 2 games to get action combat right

So, can we get a statement regarding the cooldown of the candy? being able to have perma buffs is the one thing that makes this even even noticeable, is it meant to be a 1 hour cooldown or is it bugged?

2. House Fame Event!

Start: Mar.8th, 2017

  • End: Mar. 29th, 2017

  • Event Details:

    • Players are divided into two separate groups; Loyal Adventurer and Rookie Adventurer.

    • Players can only receive event rewards from only one of the two groups.

    • Event Rewards will be distributed on March 29th after maintenance via in-game mail.

    • Loyal Adventurers are players who have joined Black Desert prior to January 1, 2017.

    • Rookie Adventurers are players who have joined Black Desert on or after January 1, 2017.

    • Points accumulated prior to the start of the event still count towards the event.
       

  • Loyal Adventurer Challenge

    • Players who have joined Black Desert prior to January 1, 2017 can participate in this event and reach the house fame point conditions listed below to receive the corresponding prizes. Players can receive all the prizes up to the points they have reached. For example, if a loyal player reaches 800 points by the end of the event period, this player will receive the rewards for 600 points reached, 700 points reached, and 800 points reached.

      • 600 Points  = Black Stone (Armor) X10

      • 700 Points = Black Stone (Weapon) X10

      • 800 Points = [Event] Cold Dark Beer X10

      • 900 Points = Hard Black Crystal Shard X2

      • 1000 Points = Intermediate Accessory Box X1
         

  • Rookie Adventurer Challenge

    • Rookie Adventurers are players who have joined Black Desert on or after January 1, 2017 can participate in this event to reach the house fame point conditions listed below to receive the corresponding prizes. Players can receive all the prizes up to the points they have reached. For example, if a Rookie player reaches 300 points by the end of the event period, this player will receive the rewards for 100 points reached, 200 points reached, and 300 points reached. Rookie Adventurers can only receive prizes up to 500 points rewards and can’t participate in the Loyal Adventurer Challenge.

      • 100 Points = Black Stone (Armor) X10

      • 200 Points = Black Stone (Weapon) X10

      • 300 Points = [Event] Cold Dark Beer  X10

      • 400 Points = Hard Black Crystal Shard  X2

      • 500 Points = Intermediate Accessory Box X1

Gotta make some heavy assumptions to make heads of this event, starting with ... 1 fame = 1 point? If not, what is a point?

Also, I might have to suggest you look up the word "loyal" so you can stop spitting at us.

No worry, that's the way this event was intended, shafting over the returnees. Obviously this game was fine without them so they don't care about losing them again.

so, riddle me this:

Event Details:

  • Players are divided into two separate groups; Loyal Adventurer and Rookie Adventurer.

  • Players can only receive event rewards from only one of the two groups.

  • Event Rewards will be distributed on March 29th after maintenance via in-game mail.

  • Loyal Adventurers are players who have joined Black Desert prior to January 1, 2017.

  • Rookie Adventurers are players who have joined Black Desert on or after January 1, 2017.

  • Points accumulated prior to the start of the event still count towards the event.

am i loyal or rookie? i have had a 7 day coupon from my brother during last year. i did not like the game then, so i did not continue playing. i've given the game a second pass in february and i liked it, so i bought it for my old account which was created with the 7 day trial mentioned earlier.

to my surprise, after logging in, i have found 68m silver in accumulated house fame funds in my inbox (LOL). so technically i bought the game in february, but i think the game is going to consider me a loyal adventurer, because of the above. is there a way to check in the game directly, which category i belong to?

if i am considered loyal and not rookie, i am basically screwed, because i left the 7 day trial with one char level 12 and now my house fame is only ~300 (one main level 57 and one same level 12 char i had since the 7 day trial), which means i would not be eligible for anything. :(

so is there a part two to this event? i'd like to know what 1500 is worth.

also some life skill xp/contribution point buffs would have been appropriate. maybe a % buff for life skill, and a daily quest or three for bonus contribution gain (air gets a bit thin over 260 cp)

So the candy event....The intermediate box..Is this a 1 time deal, or is it a once a DAY deal? Because that sounds like a LOT of accessories about to be on the MP >.<
