After everything, I'm spending my sunday now creating this thread because it feels necessary. I suck at writing texts and im not a native english speaker so excuse when i make mistakes or repeat myself/forget something. If you don't do PvP you dont have to read any further, just vote in the poll and read below tl;dr PvP is becoming more and more unplayable. Lag in siege wars is insane, desync and servers still didn't get ANY better since YEARS. And NOW they are recogizing it after the NA siege yesterday. When just a few weeks ago there was huge drama because of the same issue in EU. I guess the difference was that people could log back in after disconnecting and we have less streamers. The "siege monitoring team" seemed to have their first day yesterday when NA siege started, welcome to you guys, good job discovering that we may have issues with the server. We are reporting them this like every day and they do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Their support created another ticket category to just send all tickets about lag there and then after a week they are like "oh, 100 tickets" they propably have a button to send a copy pasta response too all of them with 1 click. (I may exaggerate a bit) There are tons of reports and twitch VODs about lag and how unplayable siege is atm and now they create this thread. https://community.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?threads/valencia-siege-issues-na-3-24-18.163900/ "During next week’s scheduled maintenance, we’ll be applying fixes to help address the lag players experienced."?? This is waaaaaaaay too fast to be real. You basically have 2 days to work on it and expect a fix for a problem we have and reported since months and more months? Picture below is from the Valencia Siege Issues - NA [3/24/18] thread linked above. Picture taken at 14:27 CEST. The community is more than unhappy and I'm as well. 3 likes in 7 hours for a compensation message of a GM. 38 upvotes (while i wrote the thread it went down to 33 but now back up to 38) in reddit after 7 hours for a message people should see but many downvote it and the only upvotes are from people getting the compensation or people who want others to see it or think there will finally something happen. The communication between players and Kakao still MORE THAN VERY BAD, at least there was a post about the time change and nodewar times, so they learned from the past when nodewars was suddenly 1 hour earlier and it was an easy win for those who were there. But Vell still spawned at normal time today, so it seems to getting spawned manually, without a mention before(except the normal 30min world message? idk i went afk and expected it to be later just as nodewars). This was just the small cherry on top of that gigantic cake that led me to create this thread. A lot of people would quit BDO if there was a similar game with action combat and good graphics but a working server. Siege would only be 270+ AP people who 1shot everything (gear and other players) and 450gs smallscale guilds. The more experienced a PvP player becomes the more he realizes how bad desync is. When they joins a siege guild they get confronted with huge server lag as well. Desync is also another reason why class balance is so bad. It favors some classes waaaay more than others and making class balance worse than it already is. There are bugs that don't get fixed, bugged class mechanics that don't get fixed, exploits, bots and 3rd party software that don't get fixed. Server lag and desync that don't get fixed. Instead we get life skill transfer coupons for 2200 pearls each, random pet boxes and more and more p2w items in cash shop.... If it continues like this and we don't get the fix you promised in your new thread this game's pvp siege scene will die sooner or later. (From what I see it is already dying, people in top guilds quit because of boredom and bad server performance, they recruit strong people from weaker guilds, due to the rng and server lag barrier there are not many new castle siege players. Instead of wanting a fight the #2 EU guild is coming to valencia to create a meme because they can't fight. Server is not working. Yesterday siege there were only 2 guilds in mediah (+ a weaker guild and militia) vs #1 EU guild and the fights were already full of serverlag and rubberbanding. Imagine there was another big guild. Would've fallen from the "good fight"(which means it was more or less playable) category into the gg lagged out category. And then all these bad changes. Militia, AXES, longer respawn timers (very bad for smaller and weaker guilds) 20 years game? You better work very hard then. Global siege? Make the game more p2w so 90% of the people quit and you can merge the servers. I know some of the GMs are acutally trying to do a good job, also at support, so thanks to you. But it really is time to do something and stop ignoring the PvP issues. tl;dr server is ****, they just realized it now???? what happened to our reports over months now something PvP unrelated for the people who love graphics, screenshots and customizing what is happening to the costume production? Kunoichi got the last unique costume 9th august 2017 new costumes are a bit copy pasta with copy pasta idle animations and rereleases of old costumes. And there are still a lot of graphical bugs in some costumes (especially when mixing them, but not only) it feels like Pearl Abyss are only working on other versions and forgot the pc version exists. Sure some stuff might take some time, but there was a message from kakao in our mail on valentines day and somewhere on forums about getting better connection. Also what happened to graphical or sound remaster we heard months ago.
