Black Desert Online name reservation

Just like Aywren, after a few reloads of the site i was able to reserve my name for the northamerican server of BDO (it seems there is only one planned in each region).

Here’s hoping that ping won’t be much of an issue when connecting … Continue reading Black Desert Online name reservation

What to play and going buy-to-play

The recent weeks didn’t see much of MMORPG playtime. I was sick, playing singleplayer games, sick again and on vacation. I briefly considered taking an MMORPG sabbatical for some time, because right now i just feel i’m not in the mood of playing regularly.
