When the primary beta process for an upcoming MMO is taking place in another region and language, it’s often difficult to understand how the game is shaping up. One Black Desert fansite understands this, which is why it’s posted a beta report that traces major changes and design decisions through the different testing phases.
These fans are concerned about how Black Desert is developing because of significant changes from the original vision to the current version. Some of these changes include the elimination of two of the three types of guilds, the increased pace of leveling, the denial of one-to-one trading, and a problematic PvP system.
Another worry is that open world content has been diminished or outright removed: “Why did the open world content disappear? Open world bosses were removed, open world houses were removed, open world shops (from your house) were removed. We don’t have the answer why, but the game does not look as an open world MMO anymore, but [instead] a single-player RPG where you have the chance to party up with your friends too.”[Source: Black Desert fansite.
