Fish up some love and loot in Black Desert’s Valentine’s Day events

It’s Valentine’s Day in the world of Black Desert! The Sweet Valentine event kicked off on server up earlier today, and for the first part of the event, you’re going…

… Fishing. Yep. Fish up a message in a bottle and you’ll pick up one of 28 random quests involving mini plots, summoning bosses, and loot rewards worth up to 2.5M silvers. You can also farm cacao to use for cooking up some chocolate treats and send off “sweet gift letters” to other players, thereby spreading around more “sweet chests.” We’re talking about boxes of loot, again, here. And no you can’t send them to yourself, but nice try!

Heck, let’s just throw in some fireworks while we’re going nuts here! Find those in Velia, Heidel, and Calpheon City. And as always, the best patch notes in the MMO industry deliver this beauty:

“Black Spirit’s teeth have become brighter.”

Recently got my wife BDO and she’s been loving it. We watched the fireworks on Valentine’s night sitting out in my boat near Velia.

Another Wednesday, another BDO playerbase melt down brought to you by straight up dumb decisions to get more cash flowing to Korea. GG

The Pearl store kama buff is the most blatant p2w item they have ever added. These greedy korean devs literally just killed there game by adding this. Pearl abyss / Kakao just trashed on their playerbase / loyal customers.

I find it obnoxious that in today’s gaming culture people have quickly and easily forgotten the games that sparked the usage of the term p2w and what a true p2w game actually looks like.

When you misrepresent or misuse words and sayings they begin to lose their importance and meaning.

True Pay to Win? Why cannot there not be degrees of pay to win. A small buff that gives an advantage, be it to stats or to gearing up, should be considered pay to win, it’s not game-breaking pay to win but it is giving an advantage that those who do not pay money for do not get. To someone who is a min-maxer, that is a big deal because the only way to maximize is to have it. Just because you do not perceive the advantage as necessary, does not change the fact that people are paying for an advantage over others.

When you strictly define the definition to only encompass what is considered pay to win to you, you are the one that is mitigating their meaning and importance.

If someone says “Sweet Chests” and BDO, I confess that my first thought isn’t “lootboxes”.

The actual big news today is they finally introduced the Kamasylvia Blessings and Combat Books to the cash shop. The Blessings add energy and item drop % and combat books provide combat and skill XP. Both have been considered strong reward items when given as events for most players and often times saved for special occasions such as a grinding week or a gathering week.

The publishers, formerly Daum and now Kakao, around 2 years ago pointed out special attention they had decided to not include those kinds of items in the cash shop. Without warning or discussion they were simply available in the cash shop in 15 day durations for around $12.

This has set Reddit ablaze with the usual rounds of protesting, anger, memes and the usual rabble rousing arguments of “p2w” regarding the game especially so close in the wake of the inclusion of the cash shop tent. However as I noted last week, such anger and noise at this point has just become another Wednesday around the Kakao office at this point.

In more positive news, the Valentines day events go a step above and beyond most games and support a wide variety of play styles. Whether you’re a lifeskiller, grinder or otherwise there’s all something for everyone to participate and take advantage of. Kudos to Pearl Abyss for designing such inclusive content.
