Project Manager Fired?

Translation:

Today is the day Deska leaves Black Desert Online.

Since december 2014 I actively participated in promoting the game among polish MMO players. We gave information, translations and published a significant number of guides for you. Unfortunately, my patience also has its limits. Because of the incompetence of the publishers, the game is dying. Many bugs, bots, hacks as well as fairytales told by the publishers caused me to believe that this game at the moment has no future.

The spirit of the game has been violated 3 times already since the time of launch. A game with atmosphere, good pvp and that something that made you able to play it for hours on end has been destroyed by Daum Games B.V.

The project manager has been fired from Daum Games B.V. due to incompetence. Most likely there will be others following soon. Regardless, I hope that my help and support have been helpful at least to some of you.

From a player, to administrator of the fansite blackdesert.com.pl and moderator of the global forum. That is how the history of Deska in Black Desert ends.

Best of Luck! :)

He then claims that he still has internal sources at Daum who told him this. I am not sure how to feel about that.

Deska has nothing to do with Daum or PA. He was an volunteer mod, who at best, did a terrible job at it.

He did provide information about upcoming stuff ahead of time several times already though. Certainly had some kind of contact with Daum.

Although I am certainly not sure how trustworthy the information is this time. But considered all the -----ups recently it might have some plausibility.

Usually in such positions if someone gets fired they dont leave immediately but stay for a few weeks longer due to their contracts requiring them to do so. Unless there is very waterproof cause to let go someone immediately due to a grave mistake and violation of employment contract.... Oli for example still worked for at least a month after announcing he quits.

So.... difficult to say whether this is true unless Daum confirms/denies it or nothing happens in the coming month regarding this.

The developer killed the game in KR. The publisher is killing the game in EU/NA, these frankenstein patches that arbitrarily take changes made to KR at seemingly random times. If you ever want the NA/EU service to catch up, you need to introduce key game mechanics like night vendor and mysterious jewelry boxes from blacksmith, and remove the money grab from field bosses / remove field bosses all together.

What part of field bosses is a money grab since the last patch?

Was a volunteer mod for a time on the forums.

I don't know if they did away with the volunteer mod program, all the volunteer mods quit, or if the ones that now exist are taking quieter roles. I believe the program arose after some members of the forum community claimed that they could do a better job moderating the forums so Daum gave them a chance at it.

"The Project Manager"

Do you guys even realize there's rarely just a single project manager on any given game, and on top of it this is a position highly susceptible to changes ?

I'm working in the video games industry, just this year we had 3 PMs leaving to get replaced out of 6, it's nothing new in the video game industry, and you know, careers in general. And yes, sometimes people do get fired, for whatever the reason is, this is not in the slightest indicative of a game company's health.

I swear, the level of ignorance on these forums, people are quick to talk when they actually don't know jack shit. This is so -----ing irritating.

Deska was a volunteer not a PM so your PM info you linked from Linkedin is the wrong person. Anyone who knows both games knows who that is. I hope this post gets taken down, ya'll have no business posting their real info on here. Stop.

Up with the Volunteer Mods, most of them have been doing wonderful jobs when I've seen them around.

I know who is Deska :P

But i always wondered why he even got a Volunteer mod rank.. For real.

 

Then again, why would i care if this guy quits BDO.

Many other ppl left BDO aswell, shall we light a candle for all of them?
