    Dear Adventurers,

    We know how valuable your time in Black Desert Online is and how important your account is to you. So we’d like to encourage you to take a few precautions to not only keep it safe but also improve your digital security across the web.

    Over the last few months, there has been news of some high profile data breaches that has affected millions of people. With 23,618 hacked databases including 13 billion user records recently leaked, it’s more than possible that one of your online records was also included. If you use that same password/email combination for Black Desert Online it could lead to malicious access to your account. (Source not affiliated with Kakao Games)

    Please also take a moment to review our basic account security guidelines. It’s in everyone’s interest to keep your account safe and secure. We also strongly recommend activating 2FA if you don’t already use it.

    Please note that no leaks have occurred from our own database and we take careful precautions to protect your personal information and account security.


    With your account security in mind and as a belated nod to cybersecurity month, we’ve put together a simple event. Reset your password and receive the following reward.

    1 x Value Pack (7 Days)


    Event Period: November 18, 2020 (After Maintenance) - December 31, 2020 23:59

    Rewards will be distributed weekly during the maintenance at least one full week after the password change. Exact schedule below


    upload_2020-11-18_12-53-16.png

    • Event reward limited to one per account.
    • Rewards expire on 20th Jan at 10:00 UTC
    • The first password change during the event period will be counted.
    • This offer is limited to accounts created through the website.
    • Any exploit or abnormal way of entering the event may result in the restriction of your account.
    • Event period and specification may change without notice.

    Same, this kind treatment towards steam players is borderline systemic racism, and it need to stop. Either give us the option to transfer to web client which provides better treatment, or don't do events that exclude a portion of their playerbase.

    Yeah I have steam as well. It's linked to my phone and requires the steam app confirmation to login if it's an unknown device. But yeah since i take my accounts seriously I am excluded from this. Man another way to kick your player base for not playing thru your launcher.

    like always was.
    But if you would've read the steam comments before installing it though steam, they clearly state, that you should use the official launcher, as the steam version not only less stable, but many time excluded from stuff.

    Forum account und Game account sind ein und das selbe (wenn du das forum in vollem Umfang nutzt) und es gibt nur ein Passwort pro account!

    Forum and game account are the same and you only have 1 password for each account.
