Russian Version Update - P2P Servers Delayed To 2016

Russian Version Update - P2P Servers Delayed To 2016 | Black Desert Online |

Gleb Vyacheslavovich has published an open letter to the Black Desert Online community on the GameNet site. In it the controversy surrounding the delay of the P2P server is addressed along with the news of refunds or exchanges for in-game improvements. 

GameNet hoped to launch both F2P and P2P servers simultaneously, but due to technical issues this wish was unattainable. As a result, the P2P servers will not be launched until the spring 2016, which has caused quite the controversy within the BDO community. Many players have been asking for refunds with some even seeking legal intervention. 

At this time, as the open letter states players can exchange the right for early access to P2P server for in-game improvements, such as a year long "Premium" + "Comfort" packs access. In addition to that, owners of the early access bundles who have not logged in or do not have a character above level 10 will receive 1500 bonus GN-coins. The exchange will become available this week through GameNet application and will remain accessible for 2 weeks. If not choosing this option, players will retain the right to early access on P2P servers at launch, whenever it happens.

Another important note from the letter regards the fact that starting on October 15th, GameNet is has imposed IP restrictions to limit the playerbase to Russian-speaking countries only as requested by the developer. At this time GameNet is working on the ways to refund these players as well as Russian players who are also seeking to get their money back.
