Black Desert celebrates South and North Korean peace summit with global buff tonight

Anybody for some good news? Yeah? Me too! If you follow real-world international headlines even a little bit, you surely are aware that history was made yesterday as North Korea’s Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in met at the border for what are effectively unprecedented peace talks. Kim became the first North Korean leader to visit South Korea.

So it only makes sense that South Korean games would celebrate, right? Black Desert sure is. Pearl Abyss and Kakao announced this morning that it’ll ring the bells of peace in the world of Black Desert tonight at 10 p.m. EDT (7 p.m. PDT). That’s a bit of a euphemism; it turns out to be a one-hour experience buff.

“Please enjoy the buff in honour of peace and refrain from karma bombing during this time,” Kakao asks.

Nope. And not really.

I’ve actually been able to stay logged in ever since they changed their ISP or whatever it was they recently did with their servers, so I’ll make sure to log in and check this out.

This is not the sort of news article I expected to see in my lifetime.

I’m thinking he won’t be able too. Even though he will be there in a couple of months. BUT he will try and take credit.

Off-topic: I guess my fear will be that he’ll undo everything in an instance those two jurisdictions have been building up since the Winter Olympics in a fit of one of his “What about me?” rages. He should be kept as far away as possible from this. As this is really nothing to do with him, but likely about preventing him from blowing everything up. There is a difference.

…however, my apologies for bringing this up on your watch. As Madun said to one of my characters in Blade & Soul, “I’ll just shut up about that now.” :(

yeah, they’re probably eyeing the reunification of Germany. It was a yuge success. Germans are basically carrying europe now.
A unified Korea would be at least an economic world power like China or Japan. Without the burden of violent, oppressive history like Japan has. Or the general distrust that China has.
A whole Korea could become the leading power of Asia in a very short time.

The sad part is that, this being the Internet, putting out a “please don’t be an a-hole for an hour” message is almost certain to draw out a-holes

That’s a momentous occasion and I’m happy to see some celebration of it in my favorite MMO!

Some good news too at least from my end, the server migration they did has made my experience with BDO way better than it was for the last 3 months or so. It did a much better job than I gave them credit for.
