  1. That's fine. I was planning on keeping you in the garage anyway. 😉
  2. This is gonna be the new OD house, right? The official Clan house where all members can live? Gotta make sure it has something for all of us.
  3. I can't see the liquor store. Might have to re-evaluate the land you purchased!
  4. It is concerning to see quite a few members in this topic agree with the feeling that favoritism is a problem, and I would certainly be interested in hearing more about how they came to feel that way if some were willing to fill me in through a private conversation. Favoritism can be a tricky issue to nail down. The reality is those who associate closely with people in rank or positions are always going to be more likely to be promoted, not necessarily because they are friends but because those giving promotions will be more familiar with what those people do, making it easier to assess them. In this case being friends with someone and being aware of their actions and performance more tends to go hand-in-hand, which can easily give the impression of favoritism even though that's not really the case. However instances of favoritism can still exist. The reasons for promotions matter, and all members of the same rank should be held to the same standard, friends or otherwise. If promotions are being given out without the effort being made to earn them, then that would be an issue worth hearing about and a bad habit worth breaking. If you have a concern, don't be afraid to share it. Those of us in leadership are not omniscient, we cannot fix problems we are not aware of. At the same time, however, it is important to keep in mind that earning promotions, whether in OD or in real life, will often involve not just working hard but taking steps to ensure you are noticed and stand out from your peers. Ideally the Division Leaders should make their best effort to acknowledge the work and actions of all their members, to the best of their ability, but those members interested in advancing should also make their best effort to approach leadership and let them know that they *are* interested in working their way up and ask what they can do to help out or earn their place. We are the progenitors of our own worlds, the protagonists to our own story. Just as a story could never progress without the actions of its characters, it is only through our own actions do we shape our world. To do nothing or say nothing is to accept the world for the way it is. In other words if your plan is simply to wait for leadership to notice you, or to notice the problems you see, then things are unlikely to change. You must take it upon yourself to take the steps needed to achieve the things you feel are important.
  5. https://www.blackdesertonline.com/news/view/2401?lang=en Notable changes include a completely new Marketplace system for the game.
  6. Probably should have posted this sooner, but just a heads up that Savage Rift will be canceled tomorrow as I will be hosting the monthly Drunken Rocket League, so we will be doing it after the Guild Meeting on Saturday instead.

    Anthem

    First I've heard of it. What's it about and what kind of game is it?
  8. A consumable requires 800 mil? Is that the worth of the materials? Which materials are we talking about here?
  9. I'd also like to know what we need to make the Guild-specific Breezy Crystals. It would be good if we could make a truck load of those too while we had a Guild Base.
  10. The materials are relatively easy to get, I remember researching it before. That's pretty good information so thanks for rounding that up for us Archie. What I would like to know, though, is the materials for getting the Galley's blue gear. As that will definitely be a priority when we get the Guild House. Also regular Guild Houses may cost only 2billion but the Guild houses that have a Shipyard are going to cost more. If what you say is accurate though, and the minimum bid is half of the previous winning bid, then at least we can find out what the going rates are. If you are willing to try and find out what we need to get Galley blue gear then I'll make some effort this coming week to see if I can figure out what the bids for Shipyard Guilds are going at.
  11. February 13 patch notes https://www.blackdesertonline.com/news/view/2373?lang=en
  12. That tutorial video doesn't work anymore, and I'm personally kind of glad it doesn't because that wasn't my most dignified of videos. The basics are you start it up, you push Connections in the top left, enter the server name (ts3.overdosed.net) and a nickname for yourself (should be your OD name), then hit connect. (No password needed) It should connect you to the server. For troubleshooting or voice checks/changes you select Tools at the top -> Options -> Capture. Push-to-talk is generally recommended, so people don't end up hearing your burps, coughs, sneezes, sighs, snickers, and snorts. If that really doesn't work for you then voice activation is second-best, just make sure to adjust your sensitivity using the colored bar above so it doesn't pick up everything. And if you use continuous transmission then you will have no friends and no one will come to your birthday party.

    Guild Positions

    Dunnskii is the Guild Combat Trainer now, and Archie has taken over as Guild taskmaster.
  14. Ultima Online? Damn that's pretty oldschool. I only played Ultima a bit back in the day, but it's a classic.
  15. To be honest, the best way to help the Guild at your level is to keep focusing on yourself. It's great that you want to help contribute to the Guild, but a Guild is only as strong as the members that make it, and as long as you are a part of our Guild then anything that benefits you is also benefiting OD as a whole. So get better, get stronger, and use everything we offer members to do it. Take whatever silver you can get from us, and whatever items our events provide, and use it to make yourself powerful and capable. Then once everyone does that we can move onto the "taking over the world" step. Once you hit 56 then helping out with Guild Missions is good, and if you eventually build yourself a sailboat then you can help us earn a lot of money. But other than that the best way to help out is just chat with our other members and help them with the things they need. Accept help when it is given, and give help when it is needed. That is all any of us really need to do, that is our recipe for success.
  16. This topic will be posting links to patch notes for member reference. January 30 Patch Notes https://www.blackdesertonline.com/news/view/2321
  17. A comprehensive guide on obtaining the Ring of Power. A quest-reward ring that can't be enhanced, but provides 11 AP (equivalent to a DUO Crescent Guardian ring) https://community.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?threads/ring-of-power-11-ap-ring-quest-guide.340429/
  18. Red October is the final decision.
  19. er.. how did things that are not Divisions become part of the options for Most Promising New Division?
  20. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1JfYm6ZNy9oUlYr_Su6nTiQwK8tjp5jvbUflW_yRaLec/edit#gid=82981048 I unpinned the last topic to avoid any confusion with the out-dated charts. These ones are the most current available. Use the tabs at the bottom of the spreadsheet to change between Weapon/Armor/Accessory charts. Note: These only show the probability of success for each failstack so players can use it as a reference. It does not show the recommended failstack for each enhancement, although players can easily devise their own by using it.
  21. Here's a link to the class changes with the coming patch. (Compliments of Archie) These changes went up on their global test server and is expected to be on our server in the next 2 - 3 weeks.
  22. Non-General members can join and leave a club at will if its open, if its invite only and they leave then they have to be re-invited.
  23. You could have seen your PMs before you left, why'd you wait until now to decide to want to look at them? ^_- We have not yet designed our system to accommodate retroactive caring.
