[Maintenance] Regular Maintenance May 04th

340 posts in this topic

Hello  Everyone

I am still very new to the game and not sure on the regular maintenance times etc. I happened to notice that the maintenance said that it was going to finish about an hour ago, however when I log in it still happens to say its on maintenance. Just wondering if the time has been changed or if my launcher is being silly.

 

p.s. Lovely to meet you all and I hope you all have many great adventures ^u^ 

Unfortunately to work on some tech problem we have to add 1 extra hour to the maintenance. Thanks for your patience.

Aha! thats why ^^ no worries Thank you for informing us ^u^

I know I shouldn't be impatient, but seems like maintenance is dragging on longer than stated. Already 6 hours was a long time.

Check the news section of the forums. This is the launch of Mediah part 2. 

Sigh.. Where are node wars?

The patch notes have already been posted, so I guess not ;)

Typical mmo, over promise and under deliver on maintenance times.  For once, it would be nice if they actually overestimated the amount of time they'd need for one of these patches and came back online an hour or two earlier.  That would be such a pleasant surprise.

Daum it`s showing why some people are already leaving the game when It just came to NA.

Every week a extended maintenance, patches and more patches, (700mb, 2gb etc) even tough my Black spirit still bugged, can`t get daily and weekly quests from NPCs and as a result can't get my earing done. Really really really annoying.

There's been two patches where the servers came up ~30 minutes early.

This is a large patch. Technical issues happen.

Just stop spreading toxic stuff about a game that is actually working out very well.  I used to have that same problem with dailies/weekly quests. 
Here's the fix:

Black spirit will stop bugging when you get further into the game, and it's not really a bug that disrupts the game in any way other than being annoying.

It may sound silly but this happened to me, spent a couple days wondering why my hourly quests were not appearing. Somehow I or the game turned off all the Quest icons, except for Life. Open quest log "O" and click the "All" button on/off a couple times. They came right back for me. Just something to try...

Open your quest log, and change the filter to 'all' otherwise some quests will not be obtainable from the black spirit or the world.

Frankly I don't hold any of the setbacks or bugs against them. It is a very big undertaking and from what I understand the team working on it is very small in compare to other big game teams. It might be an unpopular opinion but this is 'technically' a new release. In my limited understanding they have translated everything, working overtime to move it to English to catch up to Korea, responding to the overflow of reports and problems, managing everything on to the new servers and making sure it works. I'm positive there is more but I don't know enough about servers or any of the behind scenes work to make any massive assumptions.

They ARE trying and we should be thankful, they work very hard to make the game we love work. When you compare how much is going right to the few problems there is a noticeable difference. We can be impatient but don't begrudge them when they are trying their hardest, it can't be encouraging or uplifting to always see such negativity with no mention of what has gone right.

To the whiners, find something else to do for the massive time of one hour. Compared to many mmos, BDO has been very reliable. If you can't be separated from the game for another hour, you need to rethink your life.

Whelp. I, for one, am happy to see the effort that is being put into this (that still surpasses many and most other games).  Naturally, I am disappointed at the Musa/Maewah shenanigans, but it's not like there's an abundance of classes to play alternatively at my disposal. (or is there?!)  
As far as the other bugs... In due time.

Thanks for everything!

I agree!  Even though I am new I still believe that they are trying hard to make everything work. People just need to stay calm and not be nasty or toxic, it wont help. So if they need an extra hour to fix things and make the game run smoothly then Im more than happy that they do that and not leave it half finished.  ^u^

People also need to acknowledge the fact that Black Desert has it`s own Game Engine that was designed specifically for it. Working with existing Engines is hard enough.

Dear Players,

We will perform our weekly maintenance as follows:

Date: Wednesday, 04.05.2016 

Duration: 6hServer Down:Server Up:
Global08:00 UTC15:00 UTC
West Coast (NA)01:00 PDT08:00 PDT
East Coast (NA)04:00 EDT11:00 EDT
Central (EU)10:00 CEST17:00 CEST

We've had to delay the end of the maintenance by 1 hour. Stay tuned.
Reason:

  • Patch Notes including improvements and new features can be found in our Forum after the maintenance


Note:Our team will do its very best to work within the given time frames; it may occur that the time frames are extended. In that case we will update this announcement accordingly.

Follow us on Twitter/Facebook to stay up2date.
Thank you for your support and understanding.

Best regards,
BDO Team

Underpromise and overdeliver is good business practice. Need 6 hrs of maintenance time? Announce you need 8 hrs and open the servers in 7 hrs. Your customers will LOVE you for it.
