    I'm not particularly in love with the design of our current forums.

    might not be the greatest, but it looks a whole lot better to me than what i see on mena, ru, sea, taiwan. might be a matter of taste.

    This is why Perl Abyss acquired CCP, to make their global version plans to come true.

    Pearl Abyss origionally put this game through publishers for market research and now the data has all been compiled they are ready to self manage and make a single global build. Kakao still has a few months left but I doubt that the contract will be renewed this time due to the fact it is far cheaper to self manage than rent out a publisher who takes a cut.

    Guess what?


    A:IR release date is actually around the time the contract ends kinda funny hmm?

    The staff of Kakao manageing BDO will not be fired they will be moved onto A:IR

    I think that's more about selling EVE Online to Asia and progressing on their gaming market.

    But know knows, maybe PA is planning to publish all versions of BDO(including new mobile) themselves when making their so called global version?

    Kakao isn't exactly a well-known and established and PC game publisher lol. They mostly do mobile applications&entertainment fluff stuff in Korea.

    I heard Aliens are coming next year because a guy at SETI has found another WoW! signal not so far from us, a message that obviously involves our math to communicate with us.
    If you look at the numbers in the message, you sum them, you turn them upside down and then twist them horizontally, adding some minus signs (-) provided by those same very Aliens to decipher it, you can read the word "F4RT".
    They're coming to fart on Earth, it's quite obvious at this point.

    Planet Earth confirmed as public Space WC of the rest of Galaxy in 2k19?

    I dont believe anything that is not from Kakao, this could just be a pissed off player trying to start bad rumors so that Kakao earns less money and ruins the game for everyone else.

    @ambyentlight has been producing bs for 2 years, he ain't gonna stop now.

    For example, he claimed that BDO was in beta some months ago. We are still waiting for any proof from him, but he keeps dodging when called out as usual.

    Here's my thoughts on this. Speculation ofcoarse.

    Pearl Abyss is intentionally not renewing contracts in Japan, Russia, EU, US or SA. They paid 425 mil for Even Online. This wasn't arbitrary, it has purpose. Here's what I suspect.
    • They now have the infrastructure for one global server.
    • They now have the capability to launch one additional global server for console players.
    • They now consolidate their entire payment system into one source with no middle man.
    • They can now push one update to every region.
