    I'm guessing you didn't want to follow Two's example of announcing a server way before release. ( not flaming, he's admitted that was a mistake )

    But to just open a topic on ko4life the day of your BETA, then only having that run for a few days is very silly in my opinion, you will not get nearly enough support in those few days, and that's without the bad timing of the opening. This is the kind of server you could start a week, even a month late and not be HUGELY disadvantaged, but still, people are gonna see it's a farm server, see that they're late and not bother with it.

    My opinion is that BETA should be up for at least 1.5 weeks, when in that time you work on advertising it. I'm sure a lot of people would gladly help with advertising it, you guys are well known so a lot of the English population would come, but without Turks and the newer players it would be dead, you need someone you trust to be able to advertise on the big Turkish forums. ( There's quite a few, and some of them get thousands of hits in a topic a day, that is where you get your numbers up )

    With the hard exp and farm rates, this server is only going to truly work if you can get at least 300 people online at a time, and even though it is the first day, you have about 40. :/

    Server looks great by the way, I just feel you should delay release date to gain players and support. There is nothing better then racing to the Cardinal or AK spots on a new server with like 200-300 other people, raids in paper armor and such.

    Hah, yeah I thought that was going to be delayed a couple of days for that reason.

    It seems though, that the beta is fairly unnecessary. Though it still could use more people to test, from what I've seen it's been tested, IMO, to a very similar extent. For that reason, beta shouldn't last very long at all, giving the server the time it needs to work its magic.

    Guess we'll see what happens though!

    There should be some decent testing going on later today and as the days pass. If we need to push the "final" release a few days we'll do what we have to.

    We've already learned from the past mistake of giving out too many announcements or promises ( Ko4life's PS rings a bell ) so we decided to get the core of everything ready before announcing, running into problems and delays which makes people lose interest.

    We've learned, now lets make a right

    I'm fine with scrolls being in pus and all that so we have to pk on buffs... but it would be nice to see Attack scrolls available in game... it just sucks that you have to rely on rogues to receive wolf that only lasts 2 minutes...

    Imma talk to kinshi and co, might gather shinigami for thsi thing.

    I'm not on about any developing errors or bugs, I'm just purely talking about advertising and population.

    Server is supposed to be up in a few days. Is that enough to advertise and bring in a large population for a release date that is so close?

    These type of servers need large populations to strive, and for that population to gather you need to while to advertise. I just think you should wait 1-2 weeks whilst you gather a large population, as people don't really check forums daily, and as simon stated above, people may want to round up their old clannies which can take a while.

    Advertise on Turkish forums, really.

    Is the BETA gonna be easy rate though? I honestly don`t think there is a point of going through BETA with the hard exp rates like you will have on release.

    Don't worry, the beta will be up for awhile. The exact time is unknown (mostly because we want to see if we missed anything), but it'll be up long enough to give people time to check it out. And concerning advertising, we've already worked out a couple different places to advertise, they just haven't gone live yet (Bloodzone comes to mind).

    Anyway, my apologies for being AWOL after I posted this thread. It was 2am and I had to get some sleep, lol. Anyway, I'm ready to answer any other questions anyone might have.

    Do u play on adding the female mage, even tho u don't want this server to have the rofd patch?

    R u planning on making boss events frequently?

    R there gonna be any exp events? The exp seems to be pretty hard.

    Is the beta going to have the same exp rate?
