Black Desert's Siege Warfare patch has been delayed again

Hope you weren't planning on Black Desert's Siege Warfare content update launching as planned: Daum has delayed it once again, this time to Friday, June 17th.

"While preparing the siege war update, planned for June 15th, we ran into some last minute obstacles which brought us to a drastic decision," wrote Daum community rep Belsazar.

"While adapting the new Season 4 Siege feature from the original Korean build, which was added in the original built long time after the Valencia and after Season 1,2 and 3, we also had to adapt some features from the Korean build that are not yet supposed to be in our version of the game. Some of those details can, but others can't be avoided. As you will see below, the patch notes are very massive this time, because we initially planned some of the content to be released with the Valencia update, but had to be shifted to this update for technical reasons. During our QA process (Quality Assurance), which lasted longer than expected due to the amount of details, we ran out of time to secure a stable launch of the siege content, so we had to make a hard call at the very last minute."

The schedule has been bumped off; the first nodewar will now begin on Sunday.

The patch notes for the whole update are available in the meantime.

As much as I hate the goblins for murdering my horse, I feel pity for the downtrodden underclass that is the goblin slave living among humanity.  Those poor, cringing, fearful wretches.  Surely they have endured the tortures of the damned among the haughty warriors of Velia. Goblin-wedgies, Goblin-wet-willies, Goblin-noogies, and Goblin-swirlies. 

The horror!

It is all good.  The system is working as it should.  DAUM found issues and delayed again.  Good, I say.  


Kudos DAUM for taking the high road and doing the right thing.  There are other devs who take the low road, release bug laden content and try to fix it after the fact.  Oh yes... releasing stuff that is broken is not uncommon to make release dates.


Quality Assurance, Daum?  Thank you!  Carry on.

That is one impressive list of patch notes and good that they delayed things to make sure everything would work as intended.

More patch notes fun:


"Knowledge can be gained via talking to the NPC in case where knowledge couldn’t be gained although NPC(Shanjo, Leph, Franklin, Chopio, and Yasopi) were found they found NPC."


Wait......what?!?!?!?!?

Is there anyone who did not expect this?

@Xijit I guess i didn't expect it but wasn't waiting with bated breath for it either, it's cool i can wait, not like i don't have tons of other stuff to do in the meantime.

Oh Daum, you wild and crazy peeps.  Someone must of been in a hurry on the preliminary patch notes, some funny little mistakes:


Warrior: Damage for Deep Thrust I has been decreased from 80% to 135%.

^^ Eh?  I think they meant increased... :D

@Darthbawl  Their patch notes are always filled with little gems like that - they really do need an English proof reader :)!

For some reason I forgot about playing this game and/or lost a drive. I played it every single day from Conqueror launch until maybe 1-2 months ago, forgetting about my crops (which are now lost).


I just can't focus on one thing.

It is quite high maintenance.

I dig their communication and commitment to quality. Can't wait.

Can we just admit this game sunk harder than RIFT, Wildstar, and Warhammer combined?

@breetoplay @RyanMahaffey  I am curious as to the performance of BDO vs B&S. Not that they are that similar but Asian imports with some action combat launching close together make it not unreasonable.  But asking which is doing better will get answered as which do you prefer.  BDO seems to be more popular here and in fansites.  But looking an NSCoft numbers and thinking about the type of games, perhaps more of the too-casual-to-fansite customers play B&S? Oh well, hope they both do well.

@RyanMahaffey How exactly are you coming by stats on whether the game has sunk at all? Would love to see data.

(Also, RIFT? What?)

@breetoplay @RyanMahaffey  I obviously can't speak for anyone else - but OTG still has 360+ active people playing (Well, I can't speak for them either - but I know how many we are at least :D)

@Eliandal So bummed that I chose the wrong server and can't play with OTG (without abandoning my toons)! I hope for server transfers someday.

@Beacon @Eliandal  Ahh...and they haven't even mentioned transfers really for a couple of months...only saying that at that time it was complicated :/  Hopefully soon though!

@RyanMahaffey Just because you don't like it, it sunk? I have 60 active members in my guild, I see lots of people eveywhere I go.

Hate to break it to you but, the world don't revolve around you & just because you don't like something doesn't mean it failed.

Far better to delay than release buggy/broken code. Wish Apple thought that way a little more often with their patches.
