Server location is the main reason my friends and I never bothered with BDO on PC. We we're hyped for BDO 2 years ago when it launched in NA, however, being the hardcore PvPers that we are, the server location Kakao picked in San Jose, CA. was a direct slap in the face to East Coast players. I beg any Community Manager here to please express this issue to PA that the player base deserves CENTRALIZED servers. Servers of good quality in a location that works for both West and East Coast players in the NA region.
Ping and server stability is especially important for a PvP focused game. Over the past 2 years all I've heard from BDO players are about the terrible servers and desync they constantly experience. PLEASE don't make the same mistake Pearl Abyss. PLEASE use common sense and give us centralized servers.
I believe I've heard Kakao is now possibly moving the servers for BDO on PC after the contract is up this April. It seems like Kakao didn't expect BDO to take off the way it did and tried to save money and go the cheap route with the servers. If the CM here can inform the devs about the community's concern on this issue, maybe we can avoid any mistakes before it's too late.
