PC NA/EU Shai Censorship now added to PS4

Recommended Posts

Long leggings permanently added to all premium outfits that are longer than even the longest dress currently on console (Venecil.) This is known from here on out as the PC NA/EU Shai Censorship patch. This in the past sparked a fair bit of controversy so I'll try and keep this strictly to a minimum of just questions and just the facts.

 

BDO players by now on PS4 will notice there is different in how your shai looks pre- and post this patch. Why was this added?

My understanding is also if an Xbox player changes to the Asia server region this censorship is removed?

 

Will you be reimbursing those of us that bought premium Shai outfits and then having out clothes patched out?

As you are well aware this does cause clipping with some outfits. (as seen on the NA/EU PC version of BDO.)

 

Is this permanent? Since we the PS4 players cannot change our console region like Xbox can.

 

IF this is a permanent change what outfits can we expect to be brought to consoles?

Is it safe to assume that anything that is on NA/EU that was censor "friendly" will be brought to console I'd like some clear expectations on what is going on, answers or lack there of will directly impact any and all pearl purchases and pearl shop purchases. I've logged 66 Days at the time of writing on my PS4 Shai I care about my character, and and my outfits not clipping. I also have spent a great deal of time and money making sure I am happy with the way my character looks.

I'm on a server in Japan, and this behavior of notifying consumers of unauthorized changes has violated Sony's regulations.  I have responded to Sony, I do n’t know if there is any improvement, if there is no improvement, I will quit the game after applying for a refund

Thank you for sharing your experience I assumed that this patch wouldn't be added to the Japanese servers. I'm sorry you are also having to deal with this. How did you contact Sony? I'd also like to make them aware of this situation.

Hello everyone Murderburger_ here 😎, just wanted to say hello to all new and veteran console bdo. I have official come back to Console BDO about 3-4 days ago and will remain here for the long haul, if anyone has any questions or wants to hang around and goof off you can find me at https://www.twitch.tv/murderburger_  I use to be a BDO partner but stepped down a month ago due to performance issues and some other reasons... but in the recent 30 days since stepping down BDO has been putting forth some effort into fixing these issues along with my community strong arming me to come back 🥺 hep plz. I am glad to be back! PS5, and the new Xbox coming out this year should make exciting changes to graphics/performance of BDO for all of us console players, along with Cross-play can't wait to meet some new people! 🤖

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—
and there was no one left to speak for me.

PC NA/EU Censorship patch Servers have
[Shai] Summer Dreamland Pajamas

[샤이] 꿈나라 여름 잠옷

This appears like it would fix the issues many of us are having with clipping. Will something like this be available in the future for BDO?.

I have made many posts about this issue in many different places and I am really hoping for a complete 180 on this censorship. I felt it was unnecessary to bring further attention to her. She was censored once already and now PA is bringing more. They are doing a poor job reinforcing their lore since they are allowing the teenage tamer to walk around in lingerie.

It might interest you to know that the Japanese version of Black Desert Mobile-does not have this censorship. It is my understanding that Shai was recently released on the mobile platform. I'm really not sure what's so bad about this little amount of skin showing.

I might point out that there was no mention of this in patch notes and that no one was notified of the censorship

 This is particularly interesting since if what kyoro is still the case for console the Japanese Console Version is now censored, yet the mobile version is not. What I would like to know is the BDO Mobile published by PA or is through another publisher?

I have deleted the game for a week.

 I asked their customer service a week ago and they haven't responded.  I also reported to Sony that Sony said that we would investigate and I was not hopeful.  Since they don't care about customers, I don't need to waste time on this game.

 

ps:Why is the mobile version OK?  The mobile version should be Japanese.  ps4 version was Japanese before, but it is no longer

I'm sad to hear you leave kyoro

I'm trying to find more information on the state of the PS4 console version in Korea and if it had the patch or not.

I will try and keep things updated as I can I find out more information.

I for one will not allow such a disregard for consumers and will most likely not return to console unless this is reversed.

Thank you for your efforts, and I will continue to follow your news.  I might come back if they recover shai's underwear

@Foil Ornithopter@kyoro
 

As of 03/10/2020 This video shows that Korea is still censorless or at least they are marketing the Kibelius outfit without it.

This is shady business at best and unacceptable-give us the look we were promised.

Raytracing I knew about the Kibelius outfit which is arguably the best use of the costume thus far.

That Florang and Vitclari are gorgeous! and I really want them yet It's really depressing to think that we may never see the MH and Sub weapon skins because of the current state of censorship 😞.

It really is unfortunate that people can't adopt a sense of maturity about these things and feel entitled to hide something that wasn't even a problem.

Someone tag a CM/GM so I would get a refund for.... the bundle and you'd have to rip away my pet etc? This is the solution?

And this is indeed because of Cross Play well that answers the question. So Xbox players are once again the issue. To say I'm disappointed would be an understatement. I can't get back my hours or playtime but this was the solution?

이걸 사고 싶어

[샤이] 꿈나라 여름 잠옷

 

This is the only acceptable solution as it it puts us on the same level of censorship as the PC NA/EU Version of the game.

Australia and New Zealand players taking a big latency hit being locked to EU region on PS4. Why we not placed on NA where the ping is far better? I wonder if PA looking into it as it has been a big issue. Thanks
