Black Desert compensation horses trot out May 6th

A horse is a horse (of course, of course), unless your horse was part of the Black Desert pre-order equine controversy. Then it wasn’t the horse you thought you had at all. However, that’s about to change: Daum is reversing its decision to not compensate players for the tier 5 horses sold in the Conqueror’s Packs that had only tier-3 breeding capabilities. Black Desert CM Jouska outlined the compensation deal:

On May 6th every Conqueror Package Owner will receive one Tier 5 Female Horse as well as a Breeding Reset Coupon for Female Horses.  As many of you probably know female horses are significantly more rare than males, so we have chosen to provide a female to make up for lost time. We will offer this through the coupon system to redeem, this will be found on your account page.

Jouska also issued an apology for the lack of details in the pre-order package as well as for the delay in in finding a solution, stating, “It took quite some time from both sides to understand what could be done and how big of an impact this situation had.”

/insert hand-wringing whining “concerned tone of voice” about what this sudden infusion of females means to the horse breeding economy…
(busts up laughing) Nah.  Fook it! I knew I could never do that with a straight face.  It’s just a video game.  Triple crown is coming up though, so we’ll see some real horses like Nyquist thunder down the Derby track right soon!

My theory on the scarcity of females is that the Horses’ Republic of Serendia instituted a one foal policy and that horse parents, for horse reasons, greatly preferred sons to daughters.  Now that those born under the policy are adults stallions outnumber mares by a considerable margin.  It’s hardly surprising that wild stallions, who would be very difficult to tame in the real world, are quickly made docile by anyone who offers them a little sugar.

Sorenthaz squidgod2000 Vikaernes Maybe in a sub game, but not in a B2P title like BDO. Besides, depending on your timezone and your available free time, regular scheduled maintenance can effectively prevent you playing one day a week. BDO’s maintenance schedule meant I couldn’t play the game on Wednesday evenings. Am I entitled to compo for that? I don’t think so – it was just an opportunity to do something else.

tanek_09 Vikaernes It was basically the equivalent of someone selling a car and saying it’s brand new despite actually being several years old and having a few parts that are in poor condition.   But they slap a sticker on it that says it’s the new model you want in hopes you won’t notice.

This whole thing has been really bizarre on their end.  Glad they’re doing it now, but jeeze…

I would like compensation for the 50 dollars I spent on a game that has no helmet graphics for 2 of its classes.
