Black Desert introduces the family fame system with today’s patch

I mean, I sort of get it, but pinning your hopes on things is a fool's errand.

Live in today’s Black Desert patch is what Kakao is calling the “family fame” system, which looks like a way to encourage alting and broadened accounts.

“All characters stats within your family name will be scored in the newly introduced fame system,” say the patch notes. “The more characters you grow and develop the more benefits you may receive. Fame is separated into combat fame, life fame, and special fame. This information can be found in the ‘My Information’ window (P).Combat fame and life fame are calculated from all of your character’s combat and life levels.”

Every night, you’ll be mailed your rewards based on your family’s daily activities. If it sounds familiar, it might be because it has a little bit in common with what Camelot Unchained is planning.

Kakao has also turned on the “play your way” event and continue patching in pre-loading chunks of the Margoria expansion, which launches next week. Also, Sorceresses? Major update for you:

“While wearing the Le Vladian underwear and in combat stance, the issue where some graphics textures were clipping through has been fixed.”

Dammit, MMOs.
