You agreed with a guy who got account banned twice and finaly ip banned for using hacks. So that kind of thought came to my mind from how you and your "buddy" offensively talk to Azu and criticize the server stuff and the server itself. I don`t even know who you are and what server you played on USKO, and don`t care to be honest.
Its play4free server so its not like the gm will be on your each word, they do something when they got time. Over KO they got a real life, not like alot of people on those forums sadly.
And tbh I'm not intrested in sk/cz server... It's almost like USKO, You won't hear any english and thats not cool I'd rather play sth else and not this one...
Sorry If it looked like it was offensive. But if all gm's are from same timezone its no go and server has no people and it lacks of pk.
About non english speaking players. My clan has 18 members and all of them speak at least english on communicative level, so you are wrong in that matter.
Your main problem about the server is timezone. So i can agree that "it 'sucks" for you but not overall. Your post was offensive so i posted my point of view on the server aswell which is different from yours.
No hard feelings .
I need to change my oppinion about the AzuKO.
Its sorta gms fault because they can`t protect their server from tbl edits and stuff.
When it comes to the players skill its terrible but its not the gms fault. Some of the skilled players i`ve met, already left this server because of boredom. If you are searching for legit server worth a try, do not join this one.
Thats just my personal oppinion. Its just a waste of time.

golden. i say it.
First thing is, that tbl edits are mainly mgame's fault because of their poor design (thats what DoomBringer should call epic fail, if he has ever seen the source) and a total lack of defensive coding. Every server owner spends most of his time by fixing mgame's bugs.
Now that we are clear about that. We are not on twostar's (or such) level of knowledge, so yea - our cheat protection is worse than on top private servers. But that doesnt mean we are not doing anything against it. From mine point of view, security by obscurity (aka tbl cryption just on client-side) is not a solution, so we are not going the popular (and just a temporary by principle) way of client-side anticheat as the other servers do (at least not in the near future). Instead of it, you could notice our first server-side checked skill (5 arrow) a few days ago. We had to tune the stability of our solution in the first place, but it seems to be ok now and we can continue adding other checks. My guess is, that we could have covered the most problematic skills in a week or two (considering my average free time for server around 1h/day :/ ).
And by the way - together with last patch came also our "antitown" feature (town is disabled for 15secs since last damage from a player). Even if there are different opinions on this one, it at least shows our ability to implement nonstandard features and not just copy&paste from twostar .
Last thing I wanna say - we are doing it just for fun, in our freetime and learning a lot from it. There's no other way for us than fix the issues "on the run", simply because it's not our full-time job (as some people think).
I know u guys working on the scripts and much as your free time allows but current server setup makes players like me quit AzuKO.
Many skills aren`t working as they should and it realy affects pvp.
List of the bugged skills is realy long mate.
Archer skills :
- archer hitting not duffed and well geared assasins even around 1k with SH;
- ice shot - ones u get iced u cannot cure (you need to relog to remove the ice efect + the antitown feature - im sure you know what i mean);
- dunno if you guys edited the atack speed of archers but it looks like their atacks are abit too fast (i might be wrong);
Mage skills :
- light mage stun rate is way too high (with 200 ressistances light mage is stunning me with his staff every 2nd or 3rd hit)
- fire mages skills are well balanced i think, maybe pet magician should hit a little less but it actualy makes the fight more challenging.
- ice mages - didn`t fight with any so can`t tell;
Warrior skills :
- scream and legcut - you guys need to look into this case because like 80% of legcuts are succesfull and even scream sometimes works the same way as legcut. The rates in my oppinion should be changed for better balance.
- and of course like on every private server warrior dmg with HS is too high (but its not only here so it doesnt surprice me).
My observations aren`t based on just 1 or 2 but on multiple situations in CZ.
It won`t get better unless you guys correct at least things from my list.
Dunno what are your tascs but if 10-15 people online is what you guys expect from the server, its not what i was looking for.

-archers are now good balanced dmg to other,i know u was happy when archer dont have combo and no dmg because was easy target
-ice shot is problem but u can only down swift scroll and up new and no need relog (but i have it in todo list to repair or remove this skill)
-we dont edit skills on archer still are the same but some ppl use animation edit it is client side!! (combo) like u(asasin),all characters have combo why no archer?(archers never are now for u easy target)and now is archer problem ? lol
and btw SH is shadow hunter its skill lvl 60 and DP is dark pursuer lvl 70 !!
-lightning mag have only stun and nothink else,dont have minor like sin,dont have hp ac like warrior,and heal like priest or debuff can only stay in base and tp your ass when u die? lol and when u get some stun and u die u dont like mage stun
u can too ask youself why mage dont have problem with your stealth minor and combo because mag need stay on place when need cast now is balanced and can too kill other and this is for u problem
-all what i boost on mage is staff on lvl 65 its like 72 staff,all its original like myko dont change stun rate never then....
-i play with ice mage on server but all human maybe hate ice now?because u was orc and u dont get slow from this mag !!
-warrior have balanced skils and HS is maybe little strong but when u will next play warrior and not only asasin then u will say here sins are beter because have minor and drain and other...
-i know about scream and leg cut and i if i am right it calculate from resist to curse
and i try it balanced every restart server
i know u are good player and i try doing the best what i know with team
i start play KO when start USKO, on ares with piana,have good day
maybe when we fix it all u come back good luck in real life
sry for bad eng i still learn

1st mature post from server owners over all:O
Should it realy work that way ? Think about it. And im a rogue so not using swift pots.-ice shot is problem but u can only down swift scroll and up new and no need relog (but i have it in todo list to repair or remove this skill)
Key word in your sentence is "animation edits" which from i know aren`t legal and thats my point . If tbl editing makes your server balanced then i think ill stay away from it.but some ppl use animation edit it is client side!! (combo) like u(asasin),all characters have combo why no archer?(archers never are now for u easy target)and now is archer problem ? lol
and btw SH is shadow hunter its skill lvl 60 and DP is dark pursuer lvl 70 !!
You cannot minor while ur stunned so if you are constantly stunned you cannot minor at all. I`m not saying stun should not work, im saying the stun rate is TOO HIGH.-lightning mag have only stun and nothink else,dont have minor like sin,dont have hp ac like warrior,and heal like priest or debuff can only stay in base and tp your ass when u die? lol and when u get some stun and u die u dont like mage stun
About other positions on my list you won`t convince me to change my mind and i`m too tired after work to argue with you about it now.

problem is, players want Über chars, if somebody can kill their char, its bad char and enemies´ char is overpowered in some way...
every char has cons and pros...
but you are looking at them in one view - 1vs1
of course, we can call light mag the best 1vs1 char because of stun, but in mass pvp? at least in 3vs3 is mage easy target for enemy (your favourite assassin x2 or x3 of them = dead mage)...
archer hit hard? sure, thats why some people are playing archers, because finally can kill something, full dex archer can have 28XXap, great dmg, but lower HP,AC, easy to kill, think about it...
another problem - assassin and minor hax, pedals - we made changes with this skill and guess what, pedal users quit, they werent immortal anymore hehe...
maybe you were one of them, maybe not (dont take it offensive dude) - my point is, some players left because they were unable to use cheats for playing... i am pretty sure 2/3 of leaving users are people who found their hax not working...
server is less populated, thats true (anyway Carnac-West was empty pvp zone too), but its still working and guys are working on it... do you know Knights Republic PS? Had problems and maybe its gone? AzuKO not...
and yes its true, we dont have enough time for it, because we are working people, mostly with family - wife/girlfriend...
AzuKO is like KObaby, need our time, our patience and yours too
playing or not playing there is your(s) decision...
