[Petition] Please lower the character deletion time D:

15 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Spoiler: Yes, this is a highly discussed topic and there have been more than 1000 threads about this, yet I want to give you my point of view and bring it back to the first page.

Hello!

Black Desert's character customization is truly unique and complex. Hence, there are dozens of character style combinations and this is the point I'm having problems with: I, as a perfectionist, am struggling with the deletion time of damned 24 hours. 

I have been creating over 25+ characters on all 3 servers now (which is quite sad, #nolife) and experimenting on so many hair styles. I've bought the game 3 weeks ago and haven't come to fully play it because I have been experimenting on different styels ever since and was forced to wait 24 hours until being able to try new styles out. The character creation doesn't give a real ingame impression which is why I have to enter the game first before being able to decide whether the style is looking good or not.

Okay, I admit it. Maybe I am too fussy and caring too much about every single detail on my character, but Black Desert is offering me to change every detail on my character so why shouldn't I be doing so?

I can understand the 24 hours deletion time for maybe higher leveled characters, but pliiiiiis, don't keep this for > Level 10ers. I'd be fine with 5 minutes for all low-levelers.

 

What do you think?

For 10 dollars, you can redo your face infinitely within 30 days.

And think about how many hours that saves you.

 

For TEN DOLLARS.

I would like to see an ingame function where I am limited to changing to hair and makeup and then if I want to do more than that, well...they gotta earn their money somehow, I guess.

You know you're going to empty your pockets for the DAUM. The sooner you face that fact, the sooner you can get on with your life. ;)

Yup, real life money.

I'm tight as well, so have not spent anything beyond the purchase price - yet.

The only MMOs I have played before have been subscription ones and they may come out at around 130-150 euros a year (ish), so am happy to spend that amount over 12 months of play.

I can't remember the exact level, but I think you get a free appearance coupon at level 45-50. Someone may know the precise level.

Yeah, took me a while as well. I have two charcters now that i am happy with. My ranger is bothering me tho...so she may just have to go...LOL.

It is worth just  accepting a character and playing tho', even if you delete it later even if just to learn the game a bit. It is complex and has lots of interlocking parts. Stuff such as knowledge, Amity, nodes invested in etc are still in place when you start to play on a new character.

Rather than this, I'd prefer a grace period for looks.  Make a character, have time to edit looks free, then it locks. 

Perfect World does this. You have 3 days to edit a new character, giving you the chance to see it in the actual game, in different environments. After 3 days, it is locked and you have to buy a character edit scroll. 

Even with the lighting options in the char editor here, my characters still do not look the same in the actual game. Its very frustrating.

24 hours is fine by me. When you delete a character, all the pearl shop items are gone too. I can only imagine the number of people who don't realize that. 24 hours is to protect people like you who delete characters on a daily base just to find out that the costume will never come back, and certainly not the backpack expansions and the weight limit increases.

I did almost the same thing as you're doing now, but with one adjustment.

I created the characters I wanted and began playing them, but on the other servers I kept making alterations to the character customization. It took a little over a week of doing this before I had the character looks all how I wanted, then waited for Blader/Plum to be released and bought the 30 day appearance change coupon.

That way I was able to play the game while working on looks without spending real cash, only putting down the money once I knew I was happy with it. Now I have 30 days to change my mind, and 30 days to tweak my Blader/Plum (both of which I had already changed things on a few times).

I'm hoping Ninja releases at the same time next month as my 30 days will still be active then. If not than I'll likely wind up using the 1000 hour appearance change reward once I have that many hours played.
