Patch Notes - March 15th 2017

The declaration thing doesn't bring anything unless I'm reading it wrong, or it's poorly translated.

Guilds WITH the node / region still won't be able to declare on karma bombing 170ap weakling withOUT the node, while that "weakling" will be able to declare on the node/siege guild.

I can clearly tell <VVV> plebs will declare on guilds like Sov now so. Just kidding, they will just keep karma bombing, why would they ever declare.

I really wish you would simply contact an officer of our guild instead of going to online forums and complaining like a child whom simply cannot get enough attention.

If we have karma bombers in the guild we have a talk with them, we dont accept it, its annoying and trollish. From what I understand it seems my guild has become a little lax on the rules in my absence (Due to death in the family followed by no job etc. So I havent had the energy to be online much). But my officers are working hard to rectify this. I apologize if my members truly did karma bomb you, I urge you to contact an officer or myself in the future instead.

Besides, VVV declares quite often, we often have 3-4 wars going on at the same time, something our PVE players arent always happy about, but please do not think we'll hide behind the no node rule for declaring.

If you wish to declare and you cannot, then take contact to an officer and we'll set something up, its honestly not that hard. You simply have to talk to us, we arent the villians you'd like to make us out to be, we're human beings, and we're a large guild, its not always easy to discern if a member is karma bombing or simply fighting against someone and losing.

I'd suggest as I've said multiple times now; Talk to us, dont hide behind your screen and get angry, nothing gets resolved that way.

Serendian Iron Suit is a male costume. You can buy the plans from Ornella but I see no option to make it in the costume shop. Someone wasn't paying attention when this change went through.

Either Dark Knights are supposed to have this, in which case it should be craftable in the costume mill, or it should not be for sale at all.

What about changing the node war times back to  what they were yes the time changed but node war time should not change the new time is too late for a lot of people who have school or a early job please change this back!

For now the times will stay as they are, I believe they will be adjusted though I do not have a firm date I can share at this time besides soon™. If / when any adjustments to the siege times are made we will let folks know.

Come one someone help me out here. Black Spirit’s Adventure is not showing up under alt menu. Can anyone help me where to find it.

The black spirit's adventure game should be under the games main menu (Accessible by pressing 'ESC' on your keyboard).

War Declaration:

- Guilds without territories/nodes CAN declare war to any guilds (no territories/nodes Guilds included)

- Guilds with territories CANNOT declare war to Guilds without territories/nodes

PS: EU servers are back! 

 

I'm in a guild that does not have a node or a territory and we are still getting the "not ready for war" message on a lot of the guilds we try to dec on.  Just tested it on three guilds known to previously be "not ready for war" and they are still the same.

 

We do have wars up on other guilds and have wars up on us but, by what the patch notes say, that shouldn't matter anymore.

yeah im not sure what happened but since im using amd radeon 390x the new radeon drivers might not be compatible with this new patch from bdo, im getting distorted visuals, its like every patch gets further and further away from compatibility, or it could be the bdo servers are overloaded in case all the textures are loaded server side? i also have the que timer on every single channel lol wth>.<  i should probably edit this with images i dunu >.<

Had been a problem for a while now (3 patches?). Roll back to 16.2 and you're good to go. First time in 6 years or so I've had to roll back a driver :(

From my understanding if the other guild has territory or an active war going on you still won't be able to dec on them.

well, from what the CMs have said here, and what the patch notes say, that shouldn't be the case anymore for guilds that don't own a node or territory, they are supposed to be able to declare war on any other guild.

 

So far it seems like nothing has changed with the way guild war declaration works and the statement about that change in the patch notes is false.

Yea, I asked a CM straight out on clarification on the whole. My take and from what I heard was you can only dec on a guild if they own no nodes/territories and aren't at war currently. So for instance guilds declaring against each other and not ending the war. In that situation no other guild can dec on them. Someone said in a few posts before yours.

The lack of communication with the player base is the same reason there are even private servers made for these games and why private servers get alot of cash. Because the lack of answering questions. Updates before they happen. They milk the cow and the dumb ones get scammed by the "virtual black market" known as a cash shop in game. You spend what 30$ for a pet, 30 for a costume, 10 just for a transaction maid! Then a new update comes drops a new class with limited fashions that I bet 90% of the new class has. Than provides more costume choices later on to entice people to spend again. Wonderful marketing idea. And it will be the same people to either place money or use a 3rd party software to bot and gain silver so they can have a 1 in roughly 300,000 chance of getting what they need from market. And people in America cry debt, economic failure but spend Food assistance and government/state support money on this game which causes more debt to the government but helps people not do a damn thing. I personally thought buying a game would totally be feasible to play for FREEEE cause technically the initial game isn't free its buy to play. But the audacity of realizing that you have a better chance at enhancing gear if you spend cash versus the free farmed way in game. Ironic right. So in a game where you have to BUY it to play it you gotta buy your way to good gear and puts you at a disadvantage to those who play who scam people or possibly much worse to actually make money. Or have a job and says oh hey screw it I got the money to spend so I will spend it on an undeserving black market scam artists for virtual currency. 10$ for 10,000 virtual is more appropriate for the game and it's players. 1,000 for 10 dollars and you cant get a lousy thing for it cept their little decor items for the characters go figure. Now while I am ranting I will point out the rant. 

This is complaining about the game at hand or cash shop etc. This is much more to enlighten why private servers steals playerbase from official cause people get treated better. Communicated with. Talked they know about the updates before they happen (well atleast most that I have played excluding the bad pservers that use NA versions files to run their client.) But other private servers have been way more successful than oficial. But the other thing is people can play this game without even spending money on a game pass + better donation rates hmph. I wonder why official companies only keep the dumb ones to get ripped off. LoL -end of rant-

-P.S don't PM me about any links to any private server.
