Communication between video game developers and their fans has never been more accessible, or more poignant. After all, with sites like Battle.net, Reddit, Facebook, and even Twitter, there’s little reason for developers not to find a way to answer fan questions when they have them. And yet, for the team behind Black Desert Online communication seems to have gone silent. Fans on Reddit have been asking questions of the team for some time now, and nothing has been answered. Or at least, not in the way they were expecting.
You see, on an official post on the Black Desert Online subreddit, the moderators noted to the players that their feedback and requests have been forwarded to the game’s developers. However, much of what they’re asking for has not been answered yet. But, a few things were expanded upon by the Community Managers, and so they posted it.
For example, the Desert Fogans and Desert Nagas have gotten buffs, but it’s only in the Korean servers right now. They are coming, but no release date as of yet has been given. Also, the request of a 5th pet slot in the game has been noted by the dev team. But, like the buffs, there’s no ETA on when this will arrive. The same goes for the Daily Bonus Loot Scrolls, they know the requests for them, but no ETA on when they’ll continue.
While some Redditors were ok with this response, others not so much. In fact, some wouldn’t have even called this a “response” at all, as it doesn’t really reveal anything. Others want a more “true” response from the dev team, even if it doesn’t even say much about content or updates.
Whether this happens or not is truly up to the team themselves, but let’s hope the fanbase doesn’t have to wait too much longer.
