I'd like to say thanks to you and Faine for setting the polls up and working so hard for the RP community <3

Praise Faine, she is doing all the work. :)

I still think moving the poll to different forums/restarting it until you get what you want (and sorry but that's what it looks like, might not be the case, who knows, but it comes across as exactly that) is not cool at all.

In the end we all want the same: a nice RP enviroment for all of us. It just turned into total chaos now.


I know you can only take my word for it, but this is genuinely not the intention and I am genuinely sorry for the trouble caused. Had this poll originally been meant for the entirety of the EU community and not just those speaking English, and could I be certain that votes were not being influenced by non-roleplayers, things would be different, but as it is right now I do not think the results on this thread are a fair indication of anything either. So I had to make an ugly decision on behalf of those concerned, myself included, and it's one I am not 100% happy with myself.

We would still like one multi-lingual roleplayer server for the sake of those who are multi-lingual. That was all this was ever about really, since those who only roleplay in one language will not interact with others anyway. However, I fully recognise the trouble that the German community - and other languages for that matter - have in trying to figure out where to go on account of not wanting to find themselves stranded on a server where their language is not widely spoken. 

There is no easy solution I can offer to this. I wish that I could. Had Daum just given us a clear RP tag for one place, all of this would have been far simpler but unfortunately it seems that's not to be. RP channels may still be a thing for all I know, but it would seem we won't get a whole server marked for it.

Please stop apologising. People just like whining, and you've done your best for this community where Daum has failed us. So thank you.

He is right, you don't have to apologize. As said before: I see where you are coming from and I don't want to come across as rude (I really hope I don't, if I do, sorry. Not native, maybe my English sounds rude because I lack better words), I can't however hide the fact that I'm disappointed by the chaos that started.

The chaos however is on us Germans, not on you :) and we all know that, no worries.

I understand MacMardigan (and your English is very good by the way). :) I share in your disappointment, which is the only reason I'm at all upset. It's a frustrating situation which I wish there was an easy solution for. 

Thank you to everyone for being so understanding, by the way. I know this all looks very bad so I appreciate that people are willing to give me the benefit of the doubt here. Whatever happens, I hope everyone is able to find a roleplay community they're happy in.

Honestly, a lot of this is on Daum, which I think deserves to be mentioned. All of this could have been avoided by them typing a couple of letters more to a servername in the form of a (RP) or -RP tag, costing them nothing but a couple of keyboard strokes. Like most triple A mmo's do. :)

Yes, I think there is a lot of disappointment on every side.

History is just repeating itself, if you can say so. It was the same before the ArcheAge launch. As a German-speaking Rper you had to decide whether you go with the German community (pve/pvp) or with the the EU-RP-Com and a few German-speaking-Rpers. (Might have been the same for other players (French, Italian...) too, but I wasn't involved there so I can't really tell). Not an easy decision for many. ^^°  And now the same again.. most likely. Not whining, just an attempt to explain some of the frustration, that's going on right now.

And everyone who tried to hold the lot together, like Faine, is disappointed too, because it never ever seems to work and for some your're the scapegoat, no matter how hard your tried.

But I think there's also a lot of understanding on every side. And that's something, isn't it? :)

Aaaand jop. True.

It's true. Now I'm cynically waiting for Daum to decide that the opposite server to the one everyone chooses is the official RP one after all. Or for them to only give us an RP channel in the wrong server. Although if we're divided, one server will always be the wrong server for someone.

Daum, please don't do this.

@CM_Jouska, please be aware of the situation on the off chance it makes any difference.

After speaking to Faine and learning about some of the challenges being faced by the EU community in terms of deciding on an 'unofficial' RP server, we've done what we can to ensure that the polls hosted on http://www.blackdesertroleplayers.com are protected from manipulation, or at least are most representative of roleplayer voices. Enjin, the provider that hosts our site and provides the framework, has no permission settings that can be set to prevent non-members from voting on polls. Instead, until the polls are closed, we've made the NA and EU General forums viewable and interactable only to members. Joining is as easy as clicking a button. We're hoping that this will ensure that those who vote on the polls, no matter their nationality, will be people who want to roleplay and care about the roleplaying community.

Though we're primarily an english speaking site, we do have lots of bilingual members and have been working to offer resources in other languages as well.

Lore in German
Lore in Spanish

Thanks!

UPDATE

XaMcQBy.png

The EN-EU community will be trying to make Jordine our roleplaying home and we invite anyone who wishes to roleplay with us to join us.

Sorry again for all of the confusion.

Channels have not been decided yet, but I will update this post when we know more.

I'd make the guess the that the channel used will most likely be Serendia or Calpheon

Oh, great :D I asked my Conquerer friends which server shall we go to and they chose Jordine. Then I realized no one checked which server is unofficialy RP and which one is unofficially PvP. xD

I wish good luck to all RP players on the server that choose :)
But remember there will always be "bad person" that will create a char just to attack the less competitive players.

I feel bad for that 'Bad person' then. for BDO, kinda forces us to learn pvp along the way, as well as the dedication in our individual characters will help up learn the many combination and movements of other classes. For not to talk about our Great, and supportive community, who would look past each others differences, to fight a common enemy :D

There will be PvP and hardcore PvP guilds on both servers and it's way too late to change our server now anyway. We'll just have to arrange ourselves with those guilds, instead of the ones that we'd be pitted against on Alustin.
