Hi guys, its been a long time no see,

Been outta the games mostly as work gets nasty sometimes at the year.

It also doesnt help not having a good new game.

After GW2 ive been kinda lost in the gaming world, tried lotsa ARPGs and MMORPGs , have quite fun in some but no keeper. Gamed a lot of BNS and sincerely i felt i was playing Tera with Gliding option, even some skills and combo where exactly the same for Destroyer, believe or not, i may deepthen on this subject but lets continue with BDO for SA players.

Anyways so here starts real subject, BDO( Black Desert Online) huge limitation for non NA/EU players, for me being in latinamerica i was scared in buying i game i couldnt play, specially one that looked so fine and like the next step after GW2.

First Mission was being able to download the game, for this you needed a VPN for registering in the webpage.

I was able to do this using ChromeVPN, this one only works in google chrome i later realized, nonetheless it helped me discover once you have downloaded the “Game Launcher” you can download the 30gb client not using a VPN and having the 100% or your download speed, this boosted up the download a lot, probably by 50% waiting time or more.

Then came the hard part, login in, creating character and playing.

SoftEther: Great VPN platform, only problem was connection speed.  I guess as ii is a research project of  University of Tsukuba, Japan. It did a great roundabout from Peru -> Japan -> NA so i ended with a 10kb/s connection. It did worked but waiting for launcher to load was like 15min.

WTFast: Though some told me this worked as a VPN, they answered me on support that WTFast did not change your IP, it merely optimized the gaming connection.

EasyHideIP: Didnt allowed to log in the game.

HotSpot Shield: Final solution, this is how im being able to play, gives me a stable connection Little ping and lag but bearable. Currently working with “high end pc” configuration and 768p resolution, so v-card might be working a little harder because of this.

Limitations: Navigation on web browser is limited for free user to 750MB i think. No limitation for gaming. So just watch out  if sending lots of info thru web browser using VPN, personally im using Smartphone for social network.

Add-Ons: WTFast in their answer told me to use WTFast with a VPN software, i tried anyways looking for enhancing speed, it did gave me a better connection but after a while it started spiking a lot. I personally like lag more than consecutive spikes.  

Currently im only gaming with free HotSpot Shield, yesterday i played like 10 hours, as FREE USER, no problem soloing all quest until i arrived lv 27/28 quests with my level 25 Zerky. I have a total 30 hours in the game. First 20h all in a row using HotSpot Shield Elite Trial(Didint hasked for extra 7 days) and a couple hours with WTFast trial on top of it also.

Connection INFO:

ADSL Modem, contracted 8MB Asimetric 1/0.10, guaranteed only 10% by country law ( ikr :’( )

 

Speedtests.NET Results:

Using HotSpot VPN Elite Trial:

VPN Elite Trial

 Using HotSpot VPN Free User:

 Note: Above tests were while made playing BDO

 

Ill keep playing this week and keep you posted if any changes happen,

See ya ingame!!

In my experience I was able to play just fine on SA (Brazil).

I've used SoftEther to connect to a NA host, which I was able to register and download the launcher through, and once you're logged in the launcher you can freely turn your VPN off and play normally with your connection straight to the servers. I didn't even need WTFast for that, my ping was a stable 190ish ms.

Be warned that with this method there's a risk of being banned, since your foreign IP is recognizable. That said, I don't know anybody nor have heard anything about people banned for doing this... yet.

Thats great to know, SoftEther just for login thats a great idea. Im still playing all the time thru HotSpot. im going to try today dcing the VPN after login. 

That would do wonders for my ping, Tyvm!!

Hi Yulan, i have no idea how u disconnect after login and play with your normal connection :O

I was trying yesterday but every time i login at the launcher, then i turn off VPN and gave me a "Network Error" when i clicked play, i guess it was because of DC between conections, 

Do you do the connection change ingame? 

So far im still playing with HotSpot no problemas

If it works the same as Bless you need to disconnect from the vpn as soon as the gameguard (or whatever its called) screen goes away and before the black desert Daum logo screen pops up.

If you meet yourself on the testing track, don't make eye contact. Lab boys tell me that'll wipe out time. Entirely.

Ahiyo there!!!

Hi Soren!!! long time no c :D

OK i have lotsa updates,

For the first week i played thru the VPN all the time, few lag issues, almost none spikes. i was playing with "high end PC" configuration, that i dont hav e, it was high end prob 5 years ago xD. Anyways, after that i switched it off and i think ive been frapping more, if any1 has explored video setups please tell :P.

Going back to VPNs, 1st week HotSpot Shield as Free User no problems until... i started getting stuck on "Now Processing" on server/character selection screen.

Googled a lot, resetted the PC, modem but it seems that as HotSpot free user you cant change VPN country. Seems this to be a problem with VPNs only after a time, it wont log. 

So what i did? I rolled back to SoftEther, consulted Yulan like at 3am i think xD tyvm for help and did the start VPN on launcher and then quit/disconnected it on black screen while loading. I remember doing this for NA DragonNest,

Its dangerous as your IP goes back to no-legit and ingame infor on startup says you on restricted country, anyways been playing no problems besides the starting game news.

After a day i did the same, use VPN for launcher with HotSpot and worked great, as it did the stuck on "Now Processing" and i now close it at the black screen white logo area it didnt happened.

This was great cus i can be farmin and watching Netflix for Peruvians and not NA (You guys have so much less tv series :P) and  HotSpot gives you only 750mb-1gb navigator data as free user and SoftEther is 2 slow so play, so the feint works, been heavy playing all this last week.

Girlfriend already came from journey, so ima do more toons now im going to have help with character creation :D GreenStone is coming, guess i will kill my warr SteveRoger for it :P.

See you ingame :D

-Harakael/Greenstone

 

P.D: i almost forgot, i have been experiencing more spikes playing with my normal connection than with the VPN all the time, probably by our great peruvian internet that goes 1/0.10 ima try diferent video config to discard it. :3
