Just a how to tell note, not a BDO specific policy:
To tell if a user here is a member, search for their name (or click on it in a post). Along the top, their trust level should say member, and they should be part of the members group. Also, if their forum name is blue (or higher) on Discord, they are a registered member. Not everyone uses Discord, and not everyone registers, but if you happen to see them and their name is blue, you’re set!
Thanks so much to those of you willing and able to step up!
Did OTG for BDO mobile fold? I cannot find any activity later than early 2020, and I am not able to add topics or reply to most of the threads, as if the forums are closed- although I am on my iPad, so it my just be me. I had a general game question and can’t find anyplace to ask.
Thank you for answering. Wow, sorry to hear it fell apart so fast. I’ve been enjoying it so far, mainly because I cannot sit in front of a computer for long hours any more. The iPad allows me to sit in a more comfortable position and prop up my arms and shoulders. I had heard about BDO for a long time, but thought it was a first person shooter like those military games most people seem to be into these days, so I didn’t even look into it. I am amazed how much like a PC fantasy RPG they were able to make BDOM. That being said, I am not a PvPer, Raider, or endgame nut. I am very casual and spend hours just fishing or messing around. And making alts, so I probably wouldn’t have been much help to the in-game guild anyways. I have a name change pending, whenever it go through I’ll give you a holler. Maybe if we find another person we could do 5-mans or something. I don’t mind little dungeons, it’s the huge everybody screaming and running around ones I can’t handle. ; )
I don’t know what is going on, but I cannot post to many of the BDOM forums. I press the “New Topic” plus sign and nothing happens. I tried to post to the BDOM application forum at https://forums.oldtimersguild.com/c/bdo/bdom-intraguild-apps/175 and it is doing the same thing. I cut and pasted someone else’s application format:
Discord ID: Tictaak #6514 , but I haven’t set it up for OTG servers yet.
BDO Family Name: Tictaak
Character names and levels: Tictaak (Valkyrie lvl 35), Bitterfrost (Witch lvl 26), Shantaak (Tamer lvl 20)
Are you more interested in the active progression guild or AFK/Lifeskills/Overflow guild? I’m pretty casual, but I will try to help the guild if I can. Really not fond of PvP. I have enough stress in my life- don’t want it in my games also.
If you are trying to join with friends and family, please list their names (forum/family) and what guild they belong to. n/a
How did you hear about our chapter? (OTG forums, member/friend/family, recruitment ad on a website etc) Been with OTG for years- not sure how long, lost my tally when we upgraded to new forums. As to this game, I didn’t realize it was a Fantasy based game until recently. Going by the name I thought it was a military FPS. Happened to see it in the app store.
I’ll go ahead and submit an ingame application also, hopefully that will be easier for everyone.
[EDIT]. It is saying “This guild cannot accept applications”. It is showing 36/47 members.
@Sibrwd I am just running out the door to take my wife to drive my wife around for some errands. At some point I’ll be on my laptop and will take a look at what is up with the forums and also your app. If I can’t get online will do it later this afternoon. Sorry you are having difficulties!
I tried the guild join in BDOM again, and it’s still showing “This guild cannot accept membership applications”. However, I did notice something- the first time I checked the guild join screen was several days ago, prior to the last maintenance. At the time, when the screen came up, under “Balanced” type guilds, there was a long list of available guilds. There were also guilds listed under the other two categories. I used the search function to pull up OTG because I wasn’t sure how it was listed and didn’t want to scroll through them all. Now, when the screen opens, there are no guilds listed under Balanced or Casual, and only one guild is showing under Competative. But using the search function still pulls up OTG. So it may be a glitch with BDOM after their last patch or whatever. My main is level 36ish and I went through the tutorial on joining guilds, so I should be unlocked and able to join.
[Update} I just checked the BDOM official “Known Issues” forum and there is currently no mention of this issue. In a normal game I’d put in a support ticket, but I’m not sure how that works in a mobile game.
I’m sorry for all this ruckus. If there is no easy fix, then don’t spend any more time on it. I can send the other OTG players a friend request, or blood kin, or whatever they call it to keep in contact for now. Thank you for your time and attention.
