So basically if I understand everything correctly looking at your own files on your hard-drive can get you banned from BDO?https://community.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?threads/notice-enforcement-for-violation-of-tos.95098/
Basically Bloo the user who posted about hidden stats got Perma banned from BDO for discovering hidden stats in the game and posting them.
But the company said he violated 8.2 of the Terms OF Service which states you can't disassemble, or reverse engineer the games files, however the person did not reverse engineer or disassemble files.https://www.blackdesertonline.com/legal/terms-of-use Terms OF Service Here

At least there has been no censorship as of yet from Kakao, but I am curious to why a person would get banned from BDO for simply giving out information about hidden stats which Kako has already admit here that the files in the directory / drive were already unpacked, so the person did not have to decompile, or reverse engineer anything?https://www.blackdesertonline.com/news/view/544?lang=en
BDO Executive Producer’s Letter to the NA/EU Adventurers 16 November 2017 16:50
This is the Black Desert Online team.
As many of you may be aware,
we’ve had an occurrence recently regarding unpacked files that had been disclosed publicly which may have whiffled up some of our loyalest supporters.
We have confirmed that the unpacked information contained undisclosed data but also discarded data that had not, have not, and will not make it into our game.
We want to take this time to sincerely apologize for muddling up confusion among our beloved players by failing to deliver accurate information.
Black Desert Online will improve on the unclarity regarding Accuracy, Evasion, Damage Reduction and keep away from ambiguous terms like ‘dramatically or slightly increased’ in the item descriptions to provide the specific details.
Please read on to the Developer’s Letter written by Jae-hee Kim, the Executive Producer of Black Desert Online below.
Lets see if the developers of Black Desert keep their word or not about making stats clear to the public or not, as for Bloo, I hear there is some type of in game protest not sure if that is true or whats up with that.
