If it's a Black Desert Private Server then I hope they get rid of it. That's basically theft. Why would we pay the game when you guys essentially get it for free?

Thanks for letting us know by the way.

Its free to play, theres no need to pay anything to play the private server, neither cash-shop or anything like that (yet I guess)

cash-shop items are for free... Well, people are doing that because they know we won't be able to play the game and using vpn isn't the best way to play... So if this is the only way to play... Well... I guess I don't need to say more :/

 

the hell? private server? Do you know that it can just lower the chance to get the game legally for us? I wouldn't play a private server because it won't last long as the actual legal servers because I know that it will just be as p2w as the RU version

lol I'm not who did the private server, many people lost their hopes because south america doesn't have a publisher, the private server thing will grow for sure if daum don't give us an anwer about south america, like yesterday I heard about another private server, a brazilian one, so apparently there are more than 1 private server and they all came out after the ip block notice... The one I was talking about was an Argentine server in spanish... Well I don't think it will lower the chance for us to get the game legally for us, I just let them know because is the best chance to make them realize if they don't give south america an answer like if we will get the game or not, they will lose future players to private servers... Well and the servers are good hidden, like the facebook group I mentioned is private, you can only join if you get invitation from another member so daum won't be able to get to know all the private servers...

Seriously, what the hell, Lithuania is a long time member of European Union and you are telling that we are going to be blocked from european servers?

I'm so fkn mad about this. Im from Lithuania and my ip was blocked on Russian server as well, but all i did there was actualy trying the game for first time and i was sure that i will not play on russian server since i cant speak fkn russian, and now these guys will block Lithuania? Like whats the reason? our internet connection is one of the best..

They will, PA are not fools to not know about it, if they want to they just can cancel their plan on releasing the liscense for our territory just because of publishing a private server (taking their work ilegaly) so yeah, that's it, I rather go play the JP/RU while the NA/EU gives us more news about South America, the game is not out yet, it will be out in next year so it's better to be patient, ofc we might lose Beta access depending of how Daum and PA gets another agreement before or after it but still, we NEED to wait an official release, "private" servers will just fail and give us even more bad reputation because of it

''More news?'' What news? lol... Is also ilegal to play JP/RU/KR or any other server if you're not from that location... And well, its facebook group with no related content in its name, hidden, without website and anything, they only allow people from south america to join... Well I don't think they will get catch, neither other private servers, the admins are who give the download link and make you an account by request and they don't let everyone play yet... Well mostly like all private servers fail in the end but at least you can still play for while and enjoy the game, there are about 300 people online right now... Well even if they know about the only thing they will be able to do is to remove the download link, that can be replaced later... The admins are also facebook fake accounts lol... Is an old gamer group, no one will turn over them... Not sure about the brazilian server... Well I dislike the idea I might play it, vpn is not my thing, I won't be paying for something to play a game that I will leave later, and even if the vpn is free, the lag is real, the private server is fully free-to-play without cash-shop, I've be waiting for years already and bit tired of it like many people... Some people already pm me asking for the link lol... Won't give tho, its a rule in that facebook group to not do so... Anyway I might only play for fun, not invest too much time playing it... I'm just waiting some answer of daum/pearl abyss about south america before I give up and start playing it.

Oceania won't get separate Servers. Oceania has just been granted access to the game. You can choose between NA and EU.

I don't just want to play the game, but I want to make friends from all over the world too. Even though someday I got server on my region, I still can't play with my friends in NA or EU. I knew about VPN. In fact, I'm still playing this game on Japanese server with VPN. But I'm not going to risk B2P account to be banned over a VPN. If I just want to play this game, I could just play on Japanese server with VPN, it's free there. But I won't be able to play with my friends in NA or EU. Feels like I'm being forced to make friends only on certain region.

Are you kidding me? Latvia and the other two Baltic States are member states of the European Union and are located in Europe. I want to play on the European server, not on the Russian one where I don't even understand anyone. Jesus Christ, this is the dumbest thing I have heard in a very, very long time. I was waiting on the EU release for months, now I am completely and utterly crushed. All due to incompetence of the publishers. What kind of idiot thought of adding official member states of European Union to Russian service and excluding them from EU service? Fire that buffoon immediately and apologize to the players from Baltic States for the distress you may have caused to them.

This is unbelievable. I hate how Baltics are always put in the same basket with Russia. We are not Russia! It's sad that we are small countries and they are not even going to give a fuck about it.

Let me put it in terms that the money grubbing execs can understand. GameNet is not going to get a single penny from us. We don't understand Russian. Their client and community is as incomprehensible to us as the Korean or Japanese ones. We're not going to be playing there, so there is absolutely no reason to lock us on their server and keep us blocked from the European one. GameNet doesn't stand to lose or gain anything from us, however, Daum EU is going to lose millions. All these people who were prepared to throw a lot of money at them, they just showed them the middle finger. More importantly, It's not just the money they stand to lose, but also respect, reputation and trust. 

I urge you to allow players from Baltic States to play on both the Russian and the European server, and to let us choose where we want to play and spend our money. We're not Russia. We're not a member state of the Commonwealth of the Independent States like the opening post seems to imply, by lumping us together with those countries. The very fact that we are the only countries of European Union to be excluded from the EU server and to be added to Russian server as if we're still part of Russia, is incredibly offensive, ignorant and upsetting. 

I spent 2000 euro's on a new computer to play this game, now I am completely lost and crushed. If this situation is not rectified and someone doesn't apologize for causing this huge mess and potentially causing millions of euros worth of loss to their company, I will never trust these companies nor play anything they release. IP blocks are a silly idea to begin with, especially if used incompetently like in this situation, but to block European countries from entering European server is something unheard, utterly moronic and unjust.

Guys I understand your pain, but realize one thing:

Geographicly you are in Europe. In reality GameNet got your country by the balls in BDO... Any other game (like ArcheAge) is not Daum's or PA's concern.

The truth is, you are not forced to do anything, you are just limited to play BDO. I'm just being realistic. If you don't like it, write a petition or something, but flaming on forums... I guess it won't help.

I'm not defending anyone here, just stating the obvious.

I don't mind people from Baltic regions playing EU game with me, but I do mind "Russian cancer" and CYKA's and if they remove the border, or allow people to choose, shit is going to hit the fan faster then you think.

Also, SEA, Africa or any other region should get their own client. Just because you can understand or speak English doesn't mean all of you guys can, and, personally, I hate seeing retards from my own country not talking in english on public chats or even guild chats.
