Nice to meet you all, My game tag name is Tempestian. Most people call me whatever they like out of that name variation. At this point I've heard them all so don't be shy lol. I'm 27 Female Australian. I've been in love with Black Desert Online since my ex asked to play it with me a few years ago when we were still together. Lately though my impatience has taken a turn for the worst and I went and bought a korean account *hides face in shame*. I thought I could wait it out till the English version was released... but I gave in lol. I have this ungodly fear that it would be like another game that I wanted to play, that was insanely popular on the English community, but flopped on its Asian market. So the game was closed. I know, I know.. unfounded fear, but you have to understand I waited 8 years to play that one only to find out that it closed mid last year and with no guarantee for a return. From what I'm reading people who have been playing the game are steadily taking a step back from it, I wasn't impressed by this, because many have their own influences over the community at large. So that left me with a dilemma... Do I wait still for release, and hopefully those popular influences wont be to influential... or do I wait and run the risk of those influences having such an influence on the market that people turn away from it, hence ending the opportunity for an English version (it aint a done deal till its released so....) So I chose not to leave things up to chance and bit the bullet so to speak lol. That and Twitches Domo helped out with that ultimate choice by pointing me in the right direction lol.
So now I'm apart of the Korean version of BDO! and I have to admit despite the confusion because I can't read Korean, I'm loving the experience.. it is.. uniquely different and I love the fact that I can do my own thing without worrying excessively over things I don't need to worry about. Like getting every ounce of game play right, I can focus on things that I'm curious about and still get to play the game.
Anyways that is my introduction, feel free to say hello I'll be hanging around since I've been using the guides on this website since starting (a week ago). So far I've been focusing mainly on breeding horses. Simply because I found out that its wise to have a fast horse... So thats what I've been doing lol.
Looking forward to hearing from you guys in the near future.
