※ We’ve had to delay the PvP ranked content, Arena of Solare, that we planned on revealing today in the Black Desert Global Lab as it requires some more development. We originally developed the Arena of Solare with a “round-based” format, but we are working to enhance this round-based ruleset to make it a bit more fun and engaging to play. At its core, Arena of Solare will be 3 vs 3, but there will be different “rules” for each round, which includes a sort of “grand showdown” ruleset to also involve 1 vs 1 elements as well. Right now, Black Desert has 23 classes, which means separating them by Succession and Awakening doubles the number of possible choices. As such, we want to highlight this class diversity and lower the barrier of entry to PvP to give more Adventurers a chance to enjoy it, so we ask for your understanding regarding the delay.
As for ranking, it will be applied individually, and we are preparing the core rewards alongside some honor/respect-based categories for Adventurers who reach a higher rank, so we hope you’ll look forward to that. As the Arena of Solare has many expectations behind it, we will work hard to make it the best and most fun it can be.
