Hello to any who wish to buy and play Black Desert. I highly suggest you refrain from making that purchase. The game has many many connection issues that have yet to be resolved after being here in the west for almost two years. In addition, those connection issues have gotten much worse since Pearl Abyss started "optimizing" the game. For an example of your potential play experience with this game, check out the followign post I have on the Tech Support forums. If you don't believe me, there are over 730 posts that have similar issues with their connection to the game. All you have to do is check the thread here. So I would recommend to all of you who are considering buying the game: do so at your own risk of wasting money. While many do not have these issues, a large portion of the Pearl Abyss' western customer base does and I am just providing a friendly warning of what you could potentially be running into. Purchase at your own risk. PS: Also, be aware that Kakao's customer service is one of the worst out there along with NCSoft and Trion. They usually do not respond to tickets and do not respond to customers' complaints. Even their own CEO and Chairperson of Pearl Abyss has admitted this here in this interview that they do not usually look at all complaints. You have been warned!
