    People who are affected and supporters, my friend has reached out to Young Yea via twitter to help voice our concerns. He has sent him links of the current controversy and issues Kakao has created after this banwave. Please help push this forward and reach out to him.



    I've reached out to YongYea and a ton of others. Hopefully someone takes notice.

    Lets hope our anonymous tipsters don't get banned. :)



    For me there is always going to be some fallout over tackling hacking, some people will get their accounts banned that were innocent. But they have to act, it is just a matter of how many mistakes they make.



    We know that hackers always kick up a fuss about bans; it was never them, what they were doing was not really cheating, everybody does it.



    So when you see "I Am Innocent" threads I always take them with a large pinch of salt...and the way they are often written means you are going to get that salt anyway. :)



    So how do you know when the complaints are genuine? You don't there's the rub.



    But sometimes people are innocent, even though there are many liars, and what would be great is if the GM's of BDO, would post public proof of everyone who cheated with a list and evidence, In fact I wish every game did this to shame cheaters.

    I was reading and a lot of people using Steam were banned because of the Trial Accounts thing.

    I am one of the victims of the faulty ban wave during the March 27th maintenance. Black Desert Online is a game which I play since June, playing nonstop .( till today almost 7000 hours)






    I'd just like to point out that between June 1st of last year and March 27th is exactly 7200 hours, so you've been "playing" BDO on average almost 23.33 hours EVERYDAY!



    Disclaimer: I do not play BDO so I do not know if this is normal, but 97%+ up-time seems a little excessive for game time, especially when you factor in the weekly maintenance.




    Exactly, because you don't play BDO you don't know much of what's happening in there. My character is online all the time with some afk stuff you can do, when I'm sleeping or at work. The game allow you to do this so I really don't see the problem here.

    Unfortunately , they did unfairly banned a lot of ppl  from steam and others which were not The Trial Account and every one get the same copy/spam replay. I don't believe that they really check in person any of our log to see who was cheating. They admit that they made the mistake but we don't see any improvements with this situation and that is very frustrating experience

    Cant really be online all the time anymore since a about 3 weeks ago they broke the ability to reconnect. So you leave your game and you come back to infinite reconnection screen that never completes.

    So yep - they broke that too, it's still not fixed.

    Black Desert is a delightful, robust, incredibly beautiful MMO. If you haven't played it before don't let the initial startup turn you off (like it did me, twice.) Most of the negative comments here are just people that don't like the game. While it is a PvP capable, it's not a gankfest either. I'm lvl 56. PvP starts at lvl 40. I've never been attacked once. If you want to quest you turn your PvP flag off and 99.5% of the players respect that. Easy peazy. Don't give any credence to the care bears posting comments.

    There is a lot to like about this game. The lifeskills alone are great fun. The combat, amazing and the classes are very powerful all in their own ways.


    PvP starts at level 50, not 40.

    Sorry but at level 56 you haven't seen the actual game yet. Come back here when you hit 60+ at least and are in all TET boss gear + TET accessories. 

    PVP as a 56 = you have zero chance 

    Your entire post reads as someone who is a noob to the game "all classes are powerful in their own ways" - lol so wrong. 

    There's noob PvE (1-56), solo high end PvE (hystria, akman etc...), group PvE, solo PvP, small scale PvP, and large scale PvP.

    There are about 3 classes that are very good at all of the above.

    Please....

    BDO is proof that we need a new AAA MMORPG. It's popular because it is pretty and it has action combat. I may be wrong but I believe it's also the newest high budget release in the west for the genre. Not counting bless cause well... you know...

    If you want a new idea, go read an old book.

    I left BDO despite having fun at the time, when I decided I would like to make an alt and realised how alt-hostile the cash shop of that game is. 

    Lesson learned, never play an mmorpg that does not offer a subscription option.

    Normally if we have new people I do a welcome to the boards post, but the newcomers in this thread are all saying the bans were implemented unfairly.

    So doing that post would seem a bit facetious, instead I must say you have changed my mind somewhat. We do not normally have this many new people in a thread about bans, so I think BDO may well have overstepped the mark here. But they have a right to ban and I cannot see how you sift the genuine complaints from the false ones so maybe time to move onto a new game, as bitter a pill as that is?

    LOL? deep inside you all know that it'll happen, manything wrong with BDO from the very begining, you guy just let its outstanding graphic fool . A good game is a game have a good graphic but still fun when ppl play it with lowest setting, ask yourself if you set BDO lowest setting, do you still play it? How can you guy waste a thousand of hours and dollar to play such game like that.

    Do you still see a great combat system lol !

    Sadly, I agree.  At this point my fight is more about vindication.  I will definitely be moving on to greener pastures once ( if ) this is resolved.

    @GM Rhotaaz even posted on Reddit that he does not look into account data before applying bans and that this was the first banwave that they did look into account data, which I doubit is true, because two days later they were admitting the mess they made.

    Yeah it does suck but with online games it seems people are guilty before innocent );, I really do hope the innocent people get their accounts back.

    And, given how many times we've seen them later admit they screwed up, it's a bit unfair to assume everyone is lying.
    GW2 did the same thing not very long ago.  Pretty sure every MMO has banned innocents at some point.

    This is normal, they allow AFK activities so there is huge incentive to be online and logged in 24-7

    I have not yet mentioned if you did get banned there are better games than BDO out there. The item levelling system which needs grinding beyond belief or the selling of items you bought from the cash shop at the auction house really brings the whole game down.
