Server Location

Recommended Posts

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.

As we can't disclose the server information at this point in time, all I can say is that we hear you and will be passing on your concerns.

I'd imagine Pearl Abyss is well aware of the complaints made about the PC servers. 

which is a good thing

i just hope they didnt had contracts set up with leaseweb for xbox before they decided to change the host on pc...
i heared rumors about the global server they're workin on. Having such a server where players from the world unite in one game
 is a kinda interesting scenario and xbox might be a good way to introduce this right from the start since there is no progress gaps

Just would like to know if they doing so and what host they use and where the host is located each for NA and EU or if they realy come up with a global host
where the server is located

Thank you! This is exactly what I wanted to hear. I don't expect details on server location to be released yet obviously but I just wanted to shed some light and attention to PA on a factor that can make or break the game for many players. I appreciate your response!

Having such a server would be terrible ping wise for the majority of players in a pvp focused game. Having region specific servers with server location that accommodates the masses, is the only way to go.

 

Unless it's some kind of global server with multiple host in all supported regions with dedicated channels. For example NA players who frequent the NA channels, have the ability to visit the EU channels whenever they want. I assume that could work.

So you're saying that new players will never join this game after release? The game is dead if that's the case. Truth is that, except for maybe the first day, there will always be progress gaps. Not all of us live in our parents basements and game 20hrs a day, some of us actually have a life. 

The megaserver sounds like a great idea but in actuality it's not great, the servers need to be region based with the option of switching. Just ask all the people that play/played ESO...

Will Black Desert ever have servers in Asia (aside from Japan and Korea) or will it remain region locked for current territories?

Jae-hee Kim: The official website opened on October 31 in preparation for servicing in Thailand and Southeast Asia. With opening the website, users are able to apply for CBT and make pre-order purchases. The Thailand servers will be supporting Thai, while Indonesian and English will be supported for Southeast Asian servers. We’re planning to open the servers through OBT within the year after CBT on November 22.

Will there be a closed beta for Xbox One players in 2018 and when can it be expected?

A closed beta hasn’t been confirmed yet. We will let the users know when we have a finalized decision.

i was refering for the plan for PA to create a global server for PC version
if they stick to this plan there will be a huge rant because this would mean actual KR pros would be within those global build and just.. destroy everyone on the good grindspots
since they heavily out-gear both NA and EU

so i thought of xbox fresh release as a good way of actual implement that idea but yeah there is the desync and ping issue so alot of players would be very displeased with that 

they still could manage this desync problem with channels so that every region has their own channels but youre allowed to switch in between those at any time so you can play on KR channel while youre from NA but you would have to deal with the desync

It's also interesting how many servers will be and where will they be? My friends and I are going to play this game from Russia. Also I would like that there were no problems with ping. I'm writing a translator through Google)
