So why wasn't there naval combat with the great ocean update?

    Bartering is all nice and good, but it seems like an opportunity that was wasted when there could have been epic naval combat over trade goods.

    We have all these ships, sailors, resources, etc., that could have been put to brilliant use, but instead we are left with essentially a mini game every four hours with some of the most unnecessary and restrictive mechanics.

    A great ocean update would have secured naval battles on the high seas where captured or defended goods could result in wealth that would drive adventures, pardon me, by the boat load to the seas. Content should be infused with a greater depth deserving of the great ocean.

    Now I can concede that maybe, just maybe, it's not too late for changes to take place. Or the ocean can just remain a series of elaborate fetch quests.

    There wasn't naval combat due to the fact that there is no incentive. You are more likely to encounter a harbor parking fiasco, with people falling into the water trying to get on the "dock", but mostly just abandoned ships.

    blue battlefield was a planned feature in NA/EU but in KR it had many many issues and think of it like this if someone doesnt have the upgraded ship with operator free cannons then it would just be who has the better gear at that point 0 skill required
    the feature was planned but proved to be buggy and flawed fundamentally and as a result of them using ocean content as a counter proposal to AAU many things were rushed and pushed out sooner than they should have been

    Blue Battlefield hasn't been released anywhere yet. It was only mentioned in a developer comment once as a future update, nothing more.

    As he says its just something they are planning on as future update, no comments jet on when will it be intruduced if at all much less any actual details about it.

    There is naval combat.

    Jerk offs with frigates that do WAY too much damage to ships that for whatever reason are slower, weaker, and less responsive in every way.

    frigate is a battle ship its designed for fighting the sailboats arent if your complaining becuz someone took the time and effort to get a frigate so they could kill and sink stuff with it.. you have issues thats like saying people are jerk offs for getting pen gear and pvping you when you only took the time to get base mastery gear..

    blue battlefeild was never launched in KR

    blue battlefeild is a boat pvp battleground iirc also keep in mind... this is PART ONE of the new sea content theres sooo much more coming an entire new ocean new sea monsters new islands island fights that giant crab boss

    Ocean is full of bugs, desync, etc...
    Hit coast = you are in desync with others.
    Someone move out from view range and go back = he desync for you (you just see his ghost for a long time).

    Sea content need repair first...

    Clunky movement, a charge that destroy your boat when by chance it doesn't miss and make you slip under the monster/enemy ship, and one (1) attack skill with a 12-16s cooldown + charging time for the range, which you must evaluate while your camera is looking 90° away when you ship is moving. If this isn't the best naval combat ever made I don't know what it is. I wish land combat was so good.

    Fortunately, it costs a lot to use the ship's cannons, otherwise players would be saturated with fun.

    7-8 year old game engine, competition with arch age

    They should focus on node wars, the main point of their game.

    people seem to ignore that and only base ALL sea content on part 1 alone even though we dont have all the content yet

    I am 99% positive you just defined AA's gameplay.. That was a huge fail too btw, still is.

    An entire studio with a few hundred employees working on 1 game is a waste of money and recourses
    making a new game with the staff you have sitting around doing nothing is smart bissness
    games been out for years of course they are making new games id be worried if they wernt

    it failed the first time around and we all left to come here because Everyone could own a house Everyone could have a farm ect ect ect ect
    no cash shop in the unchained dont fix the issues the game really had

    No interest in the BDO naval PVP without an extreme change in the physics of the game (In short must redo the whole engine) and swim,
    correct the netcode on the water to set the extreme desync perpetual.

    real solution in a real world.

    Make a new Game.

    BDO has been the theater of experimentation, the environment is not viable for anything.

    BDO is Sterile, Trunk Man, Blind and Deaf.

    That's not false indeed.
    And now we got Black Desert 2 in the pipeline .... I mean , Crimson Desert, sorry.
    Black Desert is just a nice engine which makes nice trailers, with features randomly slapped together and very inflated numbers to try to very artificially expand its lifespan and make the most completionists stay.
    This game has always been hollow.
