...and our deepest, most heartfelt gratitude goes out to our allies in this war: Black, PainTrains, GeT_OuT, and Lupinotuumes. Without them, our victory over the Calpheon territory may not have even been possible.

Last Saturday marks one of the largest-scale wars in the history of Black Desert NA. In a grand battle against a rival alliance determined to stop us from claiming this castle, Luciform and its allies did everything in their power to defeat the opposition.

Tonight, Luciform has claimed Calpheon Castle as their own for the Node War rehearsals! We got to experience some great fights over the week for a couple of Tier 3 Nodes as well. Luciform is still going strong with no intentions of stopping here, and we're looking forward to the day Node Wars go live!

Yesterday we held our second public 1v1 tournament, hosted and shoutcasted by our officer Demised (DatDankDinkDoe). We ended up with over 200 viewers on Twitch, over 50 players showing up in person, and some really intense fights between our contestants! The winner was none other than the notorious Valkyrie from Veritas, Paladin_Katiya, who was also the winner of our previous tournament. You can review the winners of every round through the tournament bracket here. If you missed the tournament, or want to watch it again, be sure to catch the VOD on Twitch here!

Lastly, I'd like to give a shout out to everyone who participated. To all of the contestants who signed up and showed up, to the people who came to spectate, and to the officers who put together and managed the event: thank you! Without you, our event would not have been as successful or perhaps even exist.

Interested in signing up for the next tournament, or just knowing when it's going to happen? Be sure to follow Trice and Demised on the official BDO forums, and follow Demised on Twitch @ twitch.tv/demised4l! Trice or Demised will be posting a thread there roughly a week in advance, where everyone can review the tournament format and sign up. Alongside that thread, I'll also be posting a notice on here from now on, so you can also check out our front page for a link to the sign-up thread. We may even try out new rules and formats in the future, such as 3v3 or 5v5, depending on popular demand.
