A group of Black Desert Online NA players came together, and had a conference call with Kakao Games regarding different in-game issues. The conference call was not only limited to the server issues and disconnections, which have been on-going problems for several months in the NA/EU server, but also included Node/Conquest War balancing, Life Skill improvements, PvE, and game mechanics. Representatives of different topics gathered at the conference call, and gave Kakao Games suggestions and feedback regarding the current state of the game.
The topics that were discussed during the conference call ranged from server instability to Life Skills. The suggestions for the game included Node/Conquest War changes, an AFK channel for AFK Life Skill players, more rewards from party grinding and high level monsters, more ways of obtaining Hards, Shards, and Memory Fragments other than events, more rewards from high level Life Skills, and many other improvements for the game.
The player-base opinion about the conference call is somewhat divided. Some players agree with the suggestions that were made during the conference call, while other players do not agree with all of them. Also, some players pointed out that the conference call was organized by the NA community and primarily focused on the NA server, and did not include many opinions from other regions including EU.
Ozpin, the NA player who organized the conference call with Kakao, left a note saying that as Pearl Abyss is seeking to build BDO as a “global single-build” game, communities from other regions should make their voices heard in hopes that BDO communities in other regions can follow his footsteps to make the game better.

I appreciate what the NA Round Table is doing and hope this leads to improvements in BDO.

From what I understand, the roundtable discussions with kakao are based off of a public discord. The representatives in the call come from multiple different guilds. These guilds include siege guilds, lifeskill guilds, and even roleplaying guilds. To spread misinformation saying that this is an attempt to push the agenda of one guild is quite pathetic even for some of the more pathetic figures in NA.
level 1 DeveroxThis is the best way to get feedback from NA players to KR devs. The changes discussed at the very least are a step in the right direction. The round table's purpose is to make the game more fun for everyone based on feedback from a large number of NA players.
