So I tried the character creator and all it does is crash on launch.

 

Looking good so far then.

Works Fine for me.

 

 

Also this guy thinks he found the release date:

 

So based off of information gathered from the recent Dev diary and contest announcement I have been able to figure out the release date of BDO
 
 
Check out the Terms and Conditions document that is posted on the Beauty and the Best Event Page https://www.blackdesertonline.com/events/ccm/ShowEvent.html
 
 
All Prizes will be distributed to the winners by [09.03.2016]. (03/09/2016) Daum Games Europe B.V. shall have no responsibility in the event the delivery of the prizes fails
 
Now take into account that the price everone gets for participating has these conditions.
7 Days Karlstein Costume
* Costume will expire after 7 days.
** Costume is only available for characters at launch.
 
 
And just to be clear they do Day Month Year you can check the document below.
 
 
Mind you that is a legal document typed up by lawyers
 
 
Take into account that you can participate in this contest without buying the game
 
 
Which places the LATEST the game will release on March, 5th 2016 given a 96 Hour Head start window for people that did in fact buy the game.
 
 
Now since they would both want a little leeway for people to decide if they want a game; and since march 5th falls on a Saturday we can safely assume that due to the developers preference of Thursday releases that the game will in fact be released on March the 3rd 2016
 
 
Which is exactly 2 weeks after the Closed beta. Assuming a one week closed beta that leaves one week for minor patches and stability fixes, which is on par with many other MMO releases in recent years
 
 
Therefore I rest my case that BDO will be released on March the 3rd 2016.
 
EDIT DUE TO RESPONSE: "The winners of the Beast and Beauty contest will be announced on the [18.02.2016] in our official forum under the event section."
That sentance is also in the legal document I linked. So you will still be able to receive your CBT2 Key before the cutoff date for the contest. My date stands.
EDIT MORE LEGAL JUMBO DUE TO RESPONSES: "If the delivery of a prize (for instance Pearls, in-game title or the 7 days Karlstein costume) requires a digital copy of Black Desert Online and/or an in-game character, it will only be transferred to participants and/or winners who own a digital copy of the game and/or have an in-game character on the day the prizes are shipped. If the participant and/or winner does not own a digital copy of the game on the day of delivery, the prize will be void and there will be no further delivery."

@CM_Jouska Am I 2 for 2?? I spotted your "Speculative" beta date.
