1. Pearl Abyss makes some information available only to Koreans and not to overseas versions.
For example, this QA, Pearl Abyss makes this information available only to Koreans.
[안내] 아투마흐 전초전 Q&A
People who play the other language versions don't know what's going on and just attack monsters and others.
For example, the memory imprint is announced to be released on December 14 in Korea and December 28 in Japan.
In Korea, the initialization of water and guild points in the Great Desert was announced a few weeks before the release.
In Japan, however, the announcement has not been made even less than a week ago.
There are many examples of this, and Pearl Abyss thinks that only Koreans need to be informed.
This is very troubling.
If you want to avoid these problems, you should play the Korean version.
2. Pearl Abyss thinks it only needs to listen to Koreans
Pearl Abyss once wrote in a "Letter from the Developer" that "From now on, I will only talk to Koreans to make this game.
At the time I thought they were joking, but they were serious.
In the QA of CalfeonBALL, the PD answered, "I didn't think it was necessary to talk to anyone but Koreans."
He is serious, the development PD really believes that he only needs to listen to Koreans.
So if you have an opinion or request for Black Desert Mobile, you should play the Korean version and give your opinion or request in the Korean version.
If you don't, Pearl Abyss will not listen to you.
If you can, you should pretend to be a Korean and submit your opinions and requests, but that is very difficult.
There are very few foreigners who can speak Korean well.
If you are playing a foreign version, even if the development PD has a chance to see your opinion (which he doesn't), it means absolutely nothing.
By the time he releases the foreign version, he thinks it's already finished, so your opinion won't be reflected in it.
So you should play the Korean version.
3. the staff at Pearl Abyss' overseas locations have no authority or motivation to do anything but be an obstacle to you.
For example, in Japan, the comment section of the official forum is closed, and Pearl Abyss is not going to listen to you from the beginning.
Nevertheless, the development PD said, "I can read Japanese with a translator. That's why I'm reading Japanese forums."
But that's a lie, the comment section of the official Japanese forum is closed, and no one has written anything.
Also, when someone expressed his opinion to the GM of Pearl Abyss overseas, he got angry and said, "Don't tell me your opinion of Black Desert Mobile. That's not my job."
What is a GM for Pearl Abyss?
The self-proclaimed GMs on staff at overseas Pearl Abyss locations are fakes and only serve as obstacles to the players.
As such, the staff at overseas Pearl Abyss locations have no motivation or authority, and you are wasting your time talking to them.
Their presence is detrimental because when you give them your opinion or request, they may mistakenly think that it is being conveyed to the development team in Korea.
This happened to us in the past.
There was a problem with the Japanese version, and many people contacted the Japanese counterpart, but Pearl Abyss didn't take any action for over a year.
One day, however, a single person contacted the Korean contact, and Pearl Abyss immediately started to respond.
As you can see, the mere presence of an overseas Pearl Abyss office can be a hindrance to you.
The overseas offices of Pearl Abyss should be shut down immediately.
If you don't want to go through this, you should play the Korean version.
4. Korea is an RMT paradise, and Koreans don't think that transferring, buying, selling, or using multiple accounts is a problem.
It is often said that "common sense in Korea is insane in the world,"
Korea is a paradise for RMT, and even if the terms of service prohibit it, trading, using, and multiple use of accounts is free.
The occasional call for the implementation of a one-to-one trading feature on the exchange is exactly what RMT is about.
Korea is a strange country where it's perfectly fine to live stream these crazy activities on Youtube and AffricaTV.
In fact, many Korean BJs are proudly offering such live streaming.
You will be shocked when you see them lending and borrowing accounts right in front of your eyes.
But that's Korea.
So even if you see someone doing these things and report them, Pearl Abyss will not take any action.
The only time they will respond is if something inconvenient to their company is reported.
Probably all Korean Pearl Abyss employees are also using RMT and abnormal accounts as if it is natural.
It's not as if the overseas version would be handled differently.
Only Pearl Abyss Korea has the authority to ban, so even if you report it on the international version, the cheater will not be banned.
The reason is that the response is based on the insanity of Pearl Abyss headquarters in Korea.
In other words, there's no reason for you to play the foreign version.
You should give up and play the Korean version.
