    Greetings Adventurers,

    In order to try and make our action against botters, cheaters and RMT more effective, we’ve been trying a few different things over the last few weeks. Part of that will be smaller targetted actions on specific patterns that are intended to complement the usual efforts we make.

    Today, we’ve executed bans for the use of 3rd Party Software during today's maintenance and we have banned 4 accounts from Black Desert Online with the following breakdown:

    Speedhack: 4

    Finally, after a lengthy investigation, we have also removed 5 PEN Blackstars and 3 PEN Distortion Earrings from the game after verifying they were created through illicit means.

    We thank all of our players who have helped us with this investigation by reporting those that would seek to gain an unfair advantage over honest players.

    -BDO Team

    No fish bots?
    Is it a good sign (less cheaters) or a bad sign (bots getting better)?

    Seeing how they only removed the pen items and not anything else like tet or tri doesn't matter I take it bots getting better. Or just wasn't that big of a focus this round

    NO but, if you purchase goods from a retailer and they are recalled you would get your money back... After all they did create an environment where this could happen. Why should one be punished after all they didn't know the items were "stolen".

    Good Work. RMT has become more and more an issue since PEN Weapons became common to trade.

    Removal from the game 10x love it... But i hope that any innocent(if they are innocent) that purchased them got silver refunded unless they were still on the hackers account.

    but for someone to buy the PEN at min, doesn't really mean it RMT. In perspective, the seller could potentially blow up all his gear doing pen roulette and now they need the fund to rebuild after.
