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.
