Greetings adventurers!

Are you ready for a new start? True, we announced it some time ago but as you know: quality is a prerogative. And quality requires a little bit of patience but hey, here we are :)

We are moving to the next stage of the new beta forums, come and take a look.
New features and amazing tools are waiting for you, and even more is yet to come in the future.. just like world exploration in BDO leads to new possibilities. So don't be afraid about changes, click here and follow us.

By the end of the week make sure you move to the new forum - and yes it's ok to shed a tear or two while leaving this one... 
Please note that starting from Friday 5th May onwards it won't be possible to open a new thread here.
However, you will be still able to post replies on the threads for a couple of weeks more, no pressure!

Enjoy and see you on the other side! ;)

Migrate EU siege thread, this contains so much useful information that cannot be lost.

 

If this does not happen, the PvF meta game will die and the EU siege scene shortly after.

The new forum is absolutely atrocious to access on a phone unfortunately. The top menu sticks to the top and blocks out a lot of the thread, leaving only a couple of very short posts visible

Uhm... why do we need a new forum? It's not that this one already is years ahead of other game's forums.

The beta forums have been up for months now and then you do a last minute complete design overhaul and press the launch button.

What.

Uhm... why do we need a new forum? It's not that this one already is years ahead of other game's forums.

Partly cause the new forums are tied to our game accounts.

The ability to like posts seems to have disappeared with the most recent update of the new forums. Also, the previous life skills forum posts are still under "Life Skills - Beta" and the Life Skill subsection has nothing in it. Have to go through "watched threads" to find the old life skill posts.

Very excited to finally be making the transition though. 

Edit: I found the old "Life Skill - Beta" subsection under "Gameplay & Mechanics".

I suggest you review your cipher list on your new forum cert, its open to all kinds of attacks. Cert is shared with other sites using SNI, you may want to move it to its own VIP which will allow you to tighten the cipher list.

https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=community.blackdesertonline.com

This one is free. Contact me if you wish further help on how to properly secure a Certificate.

I am going to keep posting this until its acknowledged.

They were going to happen purely based on the ability to tie them to game accounts so they can punish us accordingly (feel free to roll your eyes at this, I know I am).

They didn't have to do a last minute overhaul that basically wrecked 6 months of open beta, but they did, so there you go.

I can see only about the 40% of the screen because a huge black stripe on the top of the page takes the most of  the screen. Very nice job!

The beta forum had a huge overhaul recently, the last time I was on it looked very different. I like the new features too!
