I did see this theory but I mean for now all we can do is wait and hope. I got my DK to 58 and really wanna grind out 60 but dear lord the grind is painful without the flashy awesome of the Awakening so for now I'm just fishing my life away with new hopes and dreams everyday lol

"Desync fix when???

Haven't been able to afk train horses since server merge... Customer support seems to have no idea what's going on either since I keep sending them data they ask for, but stopped talking to me since then."

I'm just going to keep posting this till ya'll communicate with Pearl Abyss during one of these maintenance and fix this stupid desync issue... This kind of service is unacceptable. There is absolutely no reason I should get kicked off the server while I'm actively doing something. This problem has been going on since the server merge that was suppose to "make the game better for us". Instead it made it worse for a lot of us. It doesn't matter if I run the game in admin mode / compatibility mode / potato graphics or the highest possible graphics, I get kicked off if I move over a distance too fast for the server to keep track of where my character is.

I've called Comcast and been on them too, but all signs point towards the Black Desert servers. Instead of releasing new pearl shop items every week, why not actually try to fix the issues we've been having for months? I wouldn't care if you shut the game down for a week, or hell even a month, just to optimize the servers. Could ya'll not tell how horrible the servers are with the 1 year anniversary event bosses where people were getting kicked off because the servers couldn't handle the amount of people?

After a 2 week silence, Customer Service finally told me "I'm really sorry for the late answer. We have reported the issue to the developers, and trying to fix the core issue (we have a few very good traces to start with). Our tech team is treating this with the highest priority. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do as customer support ;( " 

I am quite aware that as a business you need to make money, but how about communicating with us better as well as making these issues THE priority. Without a community you don't make money. If people can't play they're going to move onto other games that are run by companies who know what they are doing.

I've been playing since day 1, not so much the early start since the server didn't start off so great, but I have loved the past year of BDO. I hope the next year is just as exciting. However if this issue is not fixed, I won't hesitate to go find another game to sink my time into.

You people are such moaning little babies...i love it, seriously though stop with the consistent whining about ' no dk awak' 'no kama' 

I don't give a flying ----- about Kama, really don't. I'm not ready for it and probably won't be for a while. Yet the awakening for a class is essential, and without it the class isn't complete. The fact that we're waiting this long, when even KR didn't, is honestly some sort of next level trolling.

Always funny to see DK crying for their awakening after only  5 weeks when you see the time some classes had to wait. Patience isn't your greatest quality, isn't it?

Yep, awakenening is pretty essential if you are competing in pvp specifically T3 node wars and Sieges where the guilds wont even let you take DK because it has no awakening.

Seems like PA / Kakao didnt really think that though, that they are infact making players STOP playing because they can not compete with a class they want to play.
So its like "hey here is a game we hope you enjoy, but we will not let you enjoy all of it for month because we cant release content when we said"

And then they go silent AGAIN because in their eyes being sielent is best for keeping customers happy....

Other classes didn't receive their awakenings because they simply weren't ready. They weren't even out in KR. This is different, it's ready right now and they're making us wait arbitrarily for something that is essential to a lot of people's core game play experience and the enjoyment of their class.

i think im gonna take a break, im not even mad anymore, it just depresses me...Kakao dont talk to us, they dont even give us a window for when its possible to get it released, if you ask me dissatisfied customers is bad for business, alot of people including me sold all their stuff to re-roll to dk, 5 weeks is enough for us to get familiar with the pre-awakening, now we lack the element of being able to switch things up the way all the other classes do. im just done waiting, done moaning about it, release it whenever i wont really play anymore till its out

Cause we weren't up in arms about the staggered awakening as well? Is that your point?

So we should wait about one year like other class to receive the awakening? Is that what you're trying to say? How dumb can you be?

Hello,

My name is generic DK. I rolled a brand new class that had no release date for awakening yet I will continue to cry and whine as that awakening is not released immediately despite everyone else having to wait an absurdly long time for their awakenings as well. 

I do not understand consequence of action so therefore I will rage on every maintenance post.

-Generic DK.
