[Question]

Are the family name and character name uniques? 

 

I mean, is the character name repeteable if the family name is different, for example? Or is even the family name repeteable? And... I can have the same Character Name as my Family Name? I'm premeditating my family name and character name for so long and I don't have any idea.

What is the expectation of holding back the Asian "flair" classes since that was already broken with the addition to Tamer in the Launch line up of classes. Im not asking when they will be released as the OP said we are not answering date related questions but rather why? and please dont reply with asian flair classes will come out fast because fast is a relative term fast to the MMO genre because Fast in MMo world usually means 3-6 months lol.

[Question]

Are there any plans to add more content for training profession?

Right now there is almost no reason to level this profession, because a higher change to catch a horse or more exp for a horse are almost nothing.

Greetings,

Today we would like to give everyone an opportunity to ask the developers of Black Desert a question.  You are invited to reply to this post with one question in the format shown below.  Keep in mind this is a question for Pearl Abyss about the game, and not about pricing or dates.  Please follow the example format below when posting your question.

 

[Question]

  • Are there any plans to add more aquatic/naval content such as ship battle and mermaids?

 

You have until 10:00 pm EST Wednesday, February 3rd to submit your question. You may only submit one question, multiple questions will be disregarded.  We expect there to be more questions than we can reasonably submit, hence the limitations, as such we will compile a list based off your submissions.  We will publish the answers to these questions by the 19th of February via the forums in the Announcements Section.

@CM_Jouska This is incredibly shady. I just noticed this, but "answers to these questions by the 19th of February." You know full well that CBT2 starts on Feb. 18.

Once a person buys a founders package and plays the closed beta they can't get their money back. So, this is just insanely fishy. I'm serious about this. Nobody is going to miss CBT2 just to hear your questions out before hand if they already bought a package. I know you're the messenger, but you have to see what they are trying to do. This is the last catch right before launch.

I'm don't want to be overly dramatic, but why would you schedule these things in this way?

[Question]

  • How big do developers plan on making BDO world to be?

Elaborating on the question: I'm aware the game's currently getting expansions in Korea, and it seems that your approach is to have a "never-ending" game, given there's no level limit. But as content is released (and level softcaps get raised), will there be a point where you decide on the world being too big for a server to handle, or will something else stall the world from getting larger? 

 

[Question]

Are there any plans to add more content for training profession?

Right now there is almost no reason to level this profession, because a higher change to catch a horse or more exp for a horse are almost nothing.

I believe the addition of other mounts (maybe a water mount), and having to meet a certain level requirement to be able to catch them is what he/she was trying to ask about.

Question-

Ive played this game from day one of closed beta test one in Korea and it holds a special place in my heart. Can you give us a simple TL:DR on what major changes we will be able to see on launch day and how those differ from other regions?

  • Are there any plans to improve the monster AI? The monsters are very slow and pose no challenge, rarely even hitting your character.

Was the witch originally planned to be perfect mirror of the Wizard or was this to satisfy the desire for less gender-lock restriction retroactively?

[Question]

  • Do you have any plans on adding some kind of Factions for Professions and Classes. For example Trading factions, mage faction, thieves faction, Assassins faction etc. Where all Factions contain unique quests to motivate people in pursuing this career? And having a faction house/unique armor sets stuff like that ;)
