I really hope Kakao get their act together for you folks ..
So what's the problem?.. mb i'm slow
I see a lot of technical problems... but why blaming Kakao for this?
They are the Nothern American publisher for pearl abyss on all matters BDO. Lack of communications , connection issues from day one and a myriad of issues seem to be to overwhelming for kakao to handle .
Every MMO I know of has threads like these popping up, nothing extraordinary or outrageous here imo.
You know sometimes its not the publisher but rather the game developer who needs to improve latency and many other issues. So half those posts might be really for Pear Abyss rather than kakao. Not defending Kakao cause I am a firm believe on putting blame where it belongs but I want to point out both sides.
I know sometimes you may seem laggy with your character but that could be a character model and its skills are not optimized so thats a developer thing not a publisher thing.
I dont know the exact issues as those are just titles but keep in mind we dont really know who is at fault and tbh pearl abyss is crap as a developer. Kakao also isnt the best at support but like I said might not be on them to resolve half those issues.
blue hole studios 7/10
pearl abyss 2/10
my,com Negative -12/10 ....yes NEGATIVE lol. @xDrac knows what I mean...this is the #1 worst publisher on any list
you have a point . Bdo related i doubt that the developers decided to use the cheapest server hosting web company .........(lease web) located in one coast and has had connectivity issues from launch unable to support player-base stable connectivity for a good number .Nothing has been fixed yet . The came dev cost 11 million made 330 million worldwide by last year. Server side architecture should have been at least invested in .This is just my opinion . I hope sincerely that AIR has at a minimum dedicated servers that provide stable connectivity. Just revisit this thread if and when since this is that canary in the coalmine. AS per my understanding licensing if issued to publishes to distribute the game per geo-location. someone more knowledgeable can correct me.
Ya BDO servers were horrid from Kakao and was very disappointed in them for not getting dedicated ones just for BDO so lets hope they learned there lesson on that one and actually do that for AIR.
I didn’t even realize Kakao was handling this game in the West. I will keep my expectations in check.
https://www.blackdesertonline.com/news/view/1230 - BDO was not expected to be that popular in NA, considering most people in NA don't like super grindy games... So therefor my guess is from a business standpoint they went with cheaper servers to see how well the game would do first. The contract for those servers are now up and they are upgrading them on April 25th (the link I posted). I do see your point though, because I currently play BDO and the server's are literal garbage, but there is a reason for it. Now if you have played a game like ArcheAge and had to deal with developers like XL Games and Publishers like Trion Worlds, Kakao is literally ****ing amazing in every aspect compared to other similar MMO publishers.
Last news I heard on related subject is that kakao is changing server provider for BDO for a better one
You must not have read my reply lol. But yes bdo is getting new ones.
I don't want this game to suffer like Aion with Gameforgre (worst **** in mmorpgs and p2w) or NCSoft.... I see it's taking that way.... it's just sad...
that is a worry as it seems many try to rehash the same models in the west ad nauseam. We shall see.
agreed 2+ years too late. The game probably lost some gamerbase due to connectivity/ monetization.
The test is whether korean devs / and their publishers actually Learn to respect their monetized gamerbase . Anything else is asking to go the trion/archage route.
Now that I searche dofr mor information, it happens with all mmorpgs now (asian ebery time), then my comment is pointless -.-
Communication is not their strong suit. They are know to send out a response to fires days to weeks after the backlash.
We could gotten Trino I heard the BDO is doing quite well considering all the hate it's getting. Not my type of game so I'm just following news and rumours.
I think you can go on various MMO forums and find the same discussion threads throughout. BDO does have it's problems, but I don't think a screenshot of people complaining on the forums holds any value. I've never played an MMO where people won't complaining about communication with the devs/staff. I know people who work as community managers, its impossible to keep to the standards of every player.
A small group (100 people) will be upset and take to the forums and it will look like a major communication problem, but honestly its not. I'm not saying communication isn't an issue or that people don't need to hear from the staff/devs, just that a screenshot of an instance on an MMO doesn't actually tell the story of what is going on.
you obviously are entitled to your opinion but know nothing about bdo or kakao. Any bdo vet would know better.
