Daum EU Tackles Community Questions

Posted by Suzie Ford on Nov 20, 2015  | Comments

Daum EU Tackles Community Questions - Black Desert Online - MMORPG.com

Daum EU has answered a metric ton of the Black Desert community's 500 submitted questions on the official forums. They have taken on everything including mega-servers, service area, pre-order packages and more.

Other topics include:

  • Cash shop, in game economy, pay to win, PvP (PK, flagging) & in-game features
    • There were many questions regarding those issues above, unfortunately we are not yet able to share details as this is still work in progress. 

      Our focus will be on vanity items and a few convenience items that will give you a minor advantage in matters of convenience, such as inventory slots and alike. Items such as the "Shout to Augsburg", an item that was included as bonus in some cash shop packages, has been removed for our service. (This item could be used to increase your chances in succeeding your upgrade attempts of equipment) 

      Once we have finalized internally our final cash shop setup, we will share the details in our forum. So please be patient in that regards :) 

      All questions regarding economy and PvP need to remain unanswered in this stage, as we are still tweaking and adjusting on all ends. 

      Inquiries about new in-game features and/or about adjusting existing ones can't be answered right now, as it will require a direct feedback from developers. We will consider the next interview (after CBT 1) to be with the developers directly [to be confirmed].

  • closed beta test 1
    • What is the timeframe for CBT1 - CBT 2, and release.CBT 1 is planned for December. CBT 2 and Launch depends heavily of the process of the localization. 2.800.000 words in 3 languages, more than 1.000 characters to be voiced. It takes time, but both, CBT 2 and Launch will be available in Q1 2016.
      CBT 1 is planned to be from Thursday 7 a.m. UTC to Monday 8 a.m. UTC; non stop. CBT 2 details will be revealed later, but most likely follow the CBT 1 schedule.

Within each of these general categories, Daum answered anywhere from one or two questions up to a dozen or more.

I hope I managed to cover at least some ground of those 500 questions. I know many of you will feel not fully satisfied as many important questions about PvP, in-game economy and the cash shop remain unanswered, but please understand that we are still adjusting those features from the Korean to the Western version, so it will take some more time to verify, benchmark and finalized those matters at our end before they are ready for sharing.

Thanks to both Leiloni and Coolit for the tip!
