[3,000 Days] Meme Contest

May 17 (Fri) - May 26 (Sun) 23:59 UTC


[CM] Obi challenges you to a meme contest!

Adventurers, I've spent far too much time creating some of our memes on our social media channels. To celebrate 3,000 days of Black Desert, I want you to cook up a meme of your past adventures!

◈ How to participate ◈

Create a meme within Black Desert via screenshots, drawing, or selecting one of the premade templates provided by us. [Required]

• Photoshop and/or image/video editing is fully allowed (and even encouraged!)
• You may recreate a popular meme template or invent a completely new one yourself

Post your meme on the forums in the [Events] section with the title: [Region][Meme 2024] title [Required]

• Example: [EU][Meme 2024] Sometimes it be like that
• In case you created your own template, include a clean version without text on the image (as well the original meme it was based on if applicable) [Required]

Post your meme on social media (Instagram/Twitter (X)) with the hashtags #BlackDesert #BDOmemes and tag us! (Optional)

• Instagram: @blackdesertgame
• Twitter (X): @newsblackdesert

- Please be respectful.
- Poking fun and voicing your opinion is part of the game, but refrain from being disrespectful or rude.
- Do not submit or use existing popular templates from the internet and only add text to it. The goal is to recreate them with Black Desert screenshots and/or Black Desert art.

Check out our templates for use or inspiration!

Within photo mode (Ctrl+U), you can take transparent screenshots of characters and NPCs by pressing Ctrl + Shift + Print Screen.
