Buff Wizards more... Daum has absolutely no clue how to balance this game. The breaking Gamebalance will make all the good competitive players quit the game soon...

Hey Daum,

First off thanks for working so hard on the game :) I've been one of the lucky ones and rarely has had any problems. I've been disconnected a few times...which resulted in my death and crystals breaking but, i roll with haha.

I am a role player in the game. The features for RP are ok. Not the best, but far from the worst. In the long run I'd love to see some more emotes. But this RP chat channel you've added is beyond ridiculous. Having a separate RP channel is decent enough idea...but at an energy cost? C'mon...whats the point? I mean what is the ACTUAL point of that? Is it to keep people from spamming the RP channel? Well i have 80 some energy so if I want to spam for awhile I could. But in actuality, if there are no RP events going on with my guild I usually look for random RP in Heidel once i've finished all my processing...which means i have 0 energy! Having 0 energy leaves time to do other things...like Role Play! Don't be surprised if no one uses your RP channel.

Speaking of chat. I'd like the option to change the text color to what ever i want for what ever i want. purple for whispers can be damn hard to read sometimes. If this option already exists and i haven't found it yet, forgive me.

Final point. These patch notes don't really give me the feeling like bigger problems are being worked on. Like disconnections. Or my transportation carts disappearing with all my goods in them. Adding pets, and costumes, and chat channels is all things that should be addressed once the game is completely stable. We, as a player base, would rather have everyone enjoying the game than throw more money towards you for pets and costumes.

 

Ps. Who's idea was it to have such an energy cost for chat banning? I spent 60 energy chat banning two gold spammers the other day. Bull -----ing Shit. it's sad this energy penalty wasn't completely removed. Stop Punishing us for trying to help you guys!

 

Pps. love the game, keep up the hard work, stop making silly decisions regarding our energy consumption, fix the game problems before adding more cash shop stuff to scrub more money out of the players who are enjoying the game.

The fish costume? Really? Seriously?

These guys obviously have no sense of fashion whatsoever and are the kind of players that don't care how their characters look.

It's a slap to the face to any shallow people like me that actually care and got the game with the false pretense that the look of our character was an important aspect of it.

That character creation lured me in.. Its like if you ordered the "best burger ever" and then found out it didn't have a bun.

The fish costume has been in the Korean client for a while now.  It's nice that Daum are finally bringing over more pearlshop items into localized versions of the client.

First of all, thanks for the update. You guys are doing much needed work with BDO.

I'm sure there are lots of important problems to address with BDO. Two minor issues I'd like to draw attention to...

  • Adding stack-splitting feature where applicable (ie, processing).
  • Integrated smart spam filtering system for chat.

We could use stack-splitting to avoid losing excess resources during processing. Players have been using mount inventory and warehouse space to split-stacks. Obviously, this isn't ideal. If the BDO Team could add stack-splitting feature where applicable it would save us the trouble. I think a lot of players can appreciate this.

As for spam, let's be honest... Chat Ban is really an ineffectual placebo that unfairly places the onus on players to monitor chat. Expecting players to use 15 energy in the process is a bit unrealistic and doesn't really prevent trolling. Due to the frequency of spam, the number of individual spammers and how often they swap accounts, anyone diligently applying a chat ban will run out of energy pretty fast. So most players will ignore the option altogether, reflecting it's futility. Players prefer to use energy more beneficially. Even under ideal conditions, chat ban just isn't a good solution. The chat system itself needs to be smarter.

I realize the NA version just came out. So what long-term solutions are in the works?

Why not parse chat messages for reoccurring terms, strings and URI syntax (ie, "www.1234.com www.1234.com www.1234.com"). And disallow non-standard characters to make parsing easier. Blocks over time can be an indicator, where any player being added to a substantial number of block lists in a relatively short period of time should be flagged. Whatever the solution, it should be system integrated and not overly reliant on players.

Those are the only issues I'll talk about for now. Thanks again for the update and best of luck on all your future plans for BDO. Cheers

So far a pretty light patch day. Nothing that really stirs my interest on a personal level but I'm sure it eases some problems that other people have had. I'm glad to have some information coming in every week on updates. Between maintenance times it feels like a millenia while reading upset posts all the time over the same stuff. Yada yada yada, life goes on. Most of us get over it. Thanks again for the update. A lot more information this time on changes, much appreciated!

omg yes! thanks for the increase in energy cost to say things in world chat, hopefully this will stop those pesky gold sellers and powerleveler chat spams

Game is Ok but not sure they know what the hell they are doing when it comes to balancing classes. Buff witch/wizard abilities? that was the weakest class and needed help?.....interesting, I have a feeling this game will lose my interest fairly quickly.

A good system for chat blocking would be that if you were to spam the same thing 3-5 times people would be able to block you for free.

wizards die in like 3-4 skill hit, and i'm a warrior

You haven't fought good wizards then mate good wizards can escape so freaking fast and get you into a stunlock.
But yeah it was quite fine as it was but with this 20% ice boost that stunlock does even more damage why not focus buffing tamer instead of wizard

Damage to frozen opponents has been increased up to 20%.

Nice now they no longer need 3 skills to instant kill me, 2 will be enough !

This. Why on EARTH did they think they needed any help? What feedback are they hearing? Genuinely blows my mind.

But why would I want to spend 15 energy to ban gold sellers when I can disable channel chat and use that energy for something else?

Also when will we not have to buy the game again for one outfit?

never. if you want it then support the game. don't cry because you cant have everything you want. noob.

i don't not mean to be rude :( but i will be honest.
Cash shop update was a disappointment. we had more options in the beta then currently. ever plan to do a update that brings in a bundle of sets,costumes,pets, etc?
hopefully this "add 1 costume, 1 new pet and a few miscellaneous items" is NOT the final approach you guys are taking on these updates. since we also do not know if these updates are going to be a monthly thing.

on a ending note. i do think the extra channels were a great touch. helps spread out the "overrun" situations we've all face thous far.
but seriously thou..cash shop updates should ether bring down the prices OR the updates should offer more content with each update. none of this over priced single outfit a month gig. not cool.

Sounds great so far! I love the idea of showing "PARKING" over only your own horse. 

Any chance of maybe implementing an option that limits how many player horses (not including your own) can be shown at a certain time? I can be a little frustrating at times when stable masters are buried under horses/wagons.

Witch/Wizard

  • Damage to frozen opponents has been increased up to 20%.

 

WTF? As if this fkin noob class does not enough damage already?

Maybe an explanation for this is in order because, yeah, the witch has a reputation as being OP already whereas certain  other classes definitely dont

Clearly a Dev or CM is playing a Wiz/Witch main, cos that's bullshit.

Of all the classes that could do with a buff, the wizard isn't it. Now I have even more of a reason to avoid them.

Let's see.... Buffing already very strong [pve/group pvp] Witch/Wizard , adding ugly - immersion breaking costume..I mean wtf..I personally don't mind flashy effects of Bdo skills but this red thing gave me an epilepsy attack, every time I saw it passing in Kr. Also 1 loyalty point - green 1 use dye...holy crap Daum,you guys are so generous...now I will sit at x99 lp eternally, when everything what you can buy has a damn 0 at the end , so nice of you...atleast we don't need to worry about such cheap/shit practices when buying costumes on cash shop...oh wait actually ..you still  have to buy 3 pearl packs for costume with waepons or without..it says alot about future.
