    Greetings Adventurers,


    During the Mysteries of Summer Continues: A Tale of the Fallen Kingdom event, we discovered that unintended completion was possible for the quest "United as One." Thus, the progress of the event was temporarily discontinued on August 1st, 2019 20:20 UTC/22:20 CEST/13:20 PDT. We sincerely apologize for the occurrence of this issue and for causing much confusion in your progress.


    The NPC for the "United as One" quest was supposed to appear as non-interactive until you fulfill the condition required, after which you could talk to the NPC and complete the quest. However, there was an issue where you could press the interaction key during the game's loading process to force interaction and complete the quest. This was not the intended method to complete the quest, which in turn was critical to the result of the race to finish the event, so we had to discontinue the event. Below are the details of what will happen next.



    1. All progress of "United as One" and "Aspiration in the Sky" will be reset.

    We believe it is of utmost importance that all adventurers must have a fair chance at completing this event. It is with difficulty that we decided to reset the progress of "United as One" and "Aspiration in the Sky" of all players.

    Also, we will be taking back all “Key of Truth”. When you can collect the “Key of Aspiration” from Eileen in Velia, you will be able to exchange it for the “Key of Truth”. Again, we extend our sincere apology to all adventurers who have previously completed the quests.


    2. Some of the quests of the event will be changed.

    To enable fair play, we will change the process in which "United as One" and "Aspiration in the Sky" can be completed.

    While the process of the quests will be changed, the solutions to the mysteries will remain the same.


    3. We will compensate all adventurers who participated in the event.

    We are fully aware that they will not be enough to compensate for your time and effort, but we would like to present you with the below compensation as gratitude for your patience. There will be compensation for all adventurers, but we will give extra compensation for the participants of this year's Mysteries of Summer.


    4. Mysteries of Summer will reopen next week.

    We have decided that since this event included a timed competition, in the interest of fairness the Mysteries of Summer will reopen next week with the quests "United as One" and "Aspiration in the Sky" fixed. Progress on those quests has been reset, so participants who have originally progressed that far will need to start again from "United as One.”


    The Mysteries of Summer is scheduled to reopen on August 7th (13:00 UTC | 15:00 CEST | 06:00 PDT).



    Compensation

    1) The following compensation will be given to all adventurers with a family in-game at the time of compensation distribution.

    Heartfelt Gift Box III x1

    2) Those who have participated in the Mysteries of Summer Continues: A Tale of the Fallen Kingdom before the temporary discontinuation of the event will be given additional compensation, depending on their progress.

    3) The Gold Bar 10G and Elion's Tear items that were used for the quest “United as One” will be restored.


    4) The compensations will be distributed on August 7 during maintenance via in-game mail.




    We cannot apologize enough for what had happened, but we hope that the compensations we will give out can make up for some of the frustration and disappointment we may have caused. We hope that when the Mysteries of Summers reopen next week, you will continue to enjoy the rest of A Tale of the Fallen Kingdom.

    Maybe this will teach you guys to implement testing stuff first before rolling them out. You know, like what you are supposed to do.

    What does "soon" mean, can I go to bed or will the quest be re enabled in the middle of the night?

    We've relayed this issue to the developers for further investigation.

    I was thinking the exact same, would be nice if they said like "tomorrow at 12:00 cest we'll resume the event" so we can get some clarity as to whether or not we can take a break and sleep or sit up all night for nothing

    I'm amazed by how many hours and gold I wasted trying "every method possible out there" for it to be an exploit in the end.
    Not only it makes me feel bad but it's disgusting to be so confused that you can't distinguish between what was meant to be and what was an error or mistake by the devs.
    After so much effort I ended up getting that damn red key and it's all for nothing because it was meant to be acquired in some other way.
    This just feels dirty and unfair, I don't even want to finish this quest anymore.

    Mysteries of Summer is planned to be launched as a stand-alone game. It will be easy to play even for potential Adventurers that find RPG difficult as everyone starts on an invisible jumping platform. Players that don’t have much time or find Black Desert Online difficult can enjoy the rather easily accessible game of Mysteries of Summer. Early Access version of the Mysteries of Summer will be launched soon and continuous improvements will be made on the content.

    --PA, probably

    Don't you dare sending me GM's blessings to my email as a compensation, I'll rather have nothing.
