Reserve your Black Desert character names today ahead of beta 2

Black Desert’s name reservation period opens this afternoon at 1 p.m. EST as promised. Pre-order players can swing over to the name reservation website this afternoon, log in, and claim Legolas999 to their hearts’ content. Hooray!

Explorer’s and Conqueror’s package owners are further invited to the second beta test that begins next week.

Daum Games has collected feedback from the community during the first Beta test in December and has made several improvements to the game. Players jumping into the second Closed Beta next week will be able to observe the following changes and features:

  • Revamped Karma system, which balances player kills and death penalties
  • Addition of voiceovers
  • French and German localization
  • Addition of tutorial videos
  • Adjustments to experience gain
  • Maximum player level of 55
  • Improved user interface

The game officially launches here in the west on March 3rd.

PaganRites I don’t understand why any MMO coming out today doesn’t have a system like Cryptic Studio’s suite of games where you can name your character anything you want, with only your account name being unique.
Even MMOs where you have a unique account handle, like GW2 and ESO, still won’t let you create a character if another character already has that name. (And honestly, I could be wrong about the Cryptic Studios thing. I just always assumed that was the case.)

I don’t get why DAUM chose to make character names unique, when Family name already does so.  Seems like a really stupid decision that has made a bunch of people especially angry given the server issues today.  Doesn’t make any sense.

ethion21 I think the issue was that it almost never happens on the Korean servers because the penalties where so harsh. I get the impression that they want some open world PVP but they don’t want it to turn into a gank box. I think if PK’ing gets out of hand they’ll just up the Karma penalties again. I do hope that they’ll keep the penalties high enough that players wont PK without good reason.

I don’t know the changes to Karma balancing sounds concerning…  Early feedback was people didn’t do random killing because the karma hit was heavy.  Now if it turns this into an open PVP game where people are ganking everyone then I’m gonna be real glad I didn’t preorder.  The PvP other than guild wars isn’t something I’m interested in and if it is gonna be forced on me than this just isn’t the game I was hoping…

Leilonii Hounddog74 I think the early name reservation was a brilliant business idea. It encourages people to buy it earlier rather than later.

Leilonii enamelizer Well I think he was kidding but you can repeat a letter 3 times. But this name would fail because it repeats a letter four times and uses 2 underscores when you’re only allowed 1.

enamelizer No it’s just against the rules to use more than two of the same letter back to back.
