Black Desert’s craftable ghillie suit counter will be craftable ‘soon’

I can see you now.

We posted yesterday on Black Desert‘s maintenance and patch, but since that time we’ve gotten a little bit more information on what’s in the patch. Two lines in those notes should provide succor for any players suffering under the scourge of the ghillie suit: A craftable Flare to counter the suit’s effect can now be registered on the Market Place, with crafting of the item coming “soon.”

The ghillie suit is a cash shop item that hides a player’s name in PvP, which wouldn’t seem to be a major detriment but proves rather damaging for some players. Having a Flare to counter the suit somewhat negates that advantage. It’s the sort of quality of life improvement that some people are going to appreciate immensely, although others might want some different quality of life improvements.

GeneMartin2 I don’t have one yet. Too busy with RL lately to do anything but manage my workers and afk fish. Looking forward to it though!

Leilonii I haven’t complained? It doesn’t really bother me frankly, all I do is fish and make beer.

Leilonii This proves shit. Now if they were in an area with more shrubs, trees and what not where tracking is even harder AND guild were more stacked togher you would have a bad time spotting the target you want to focus. And I don’t even see where is that “GvG”. It looks like team deathmatch.

I wonder when Daum’s apologists will get tired or are you guys employed by them :^)?

arktourosx Leilonii And if you’re trying to argue that the lack of a nameplate with an outfit that has similar colors as the background makes it hard to target somebody, then I suggest you hop into ESO because that’s literally the entire game. Hint: It’s not hard!!

arktourosx Leilonii You clearly haven’t watched the video. First off, the guys are glowing red because they’re enemy targets, so they are much closer in color to the road than to the grass or foliage. So he would otherwise blend in with that, but even then they’re easy to see. But the fight IS at Catfish camp which let’s me know you haven’t watched one bit of it. They fight all over and parts of that fight are in the grass or among trees and bushes, but those players are all still easy to find. There are also scenarios where he’s fighting a whole group of them and has to pick them out among other players and again they’re absurdly easy to see. I’m sorry but you just have no legs to stand on. The video speaks for itself.

Invasmani Leilonii Xenotaj Yes but none of the people in this thread are red-green color blind and neither are you. So unless you are the 8% of the male white population that has it, you have no right to complain.

Leilonii Actually what this video does best is show one extreme end of the Ghillie Suit argument.  You’re showing an example of a dude fighting in an open road.  I mean it doesn’t matter what they’re doing, they’re in an open field.  You’re 100% right in a bright open field or on a road you’re totally going to be able to follow and see them no matter what they do.
Where things become problematic are in scenarios where there’s good cover and terrain plays to your advantage.  The heavy woodlands areas of the South west and Catfishman swamps that already hide a chunk of your body as is (let alone the reeds) really play to the advantages of the suit.  In these scenarios 2 bars and four stacks of text are a dead give away to your location and a high mobility class like Ranger can be problematic.  Considering most of the end game daily repeatable quests drive you to these areas, that’s what generates most of the complaints.
The other issue often times brought up but not shown in this video is a real group fight.  This video the Wizard pulls back to the road and doesn’t attempt to fight the clustered enemy position.  If you’re trying to focus down a target, like a Wizard lets say, and they teleport into their back line without a name plate it’s very hard to identify which Wizard is which especially if everyone’s in a green suit.  I mean soon as they stop using their abilities for one second, they look like everyone else.
Now do these things guarantee victory?  Of course not.  What they do provide is an advantage.  Where as the people who are saying it’s not a big deal are often times presenting arguments showing why it’s not a big deal, the people who are pointing out it’s P2W are often times just showing any advantage (regardless of how big) is still P2W.  It’s like two conversations are being had, which is why there’s no end to it.

I never get that too, MMORPG’s or RPG’s in general are rarely fair, the longer you play the stronger you get.
I do not understand why P2W is bad, but nolife to win is ok.

If you want purely skillbased go do some sports or even esports, but skillbased is also not fair.

Cyroselle its no counter for sure, although i am not convinced that a counter is needed. 

Whats really needed is a long counter for de-flagging and community KOS Rule for Ghillie Suit wearers ;-)

With this instant de-flagging a PK does not even need to commit for an hour, and harrasing/griefing with flagging and de-flagging to incur penalties on the defender or Anti-PK’s needs to change.
