Great, thanks for asking....
My question was legitimate, I wanted to know what makes LegitKO different from all the other servers out there that will make it succeed.
Before a server is released there should be no judgment, I know I personally never judged other servers myself until they where released.
You guys have said all servs releasing have failed, ever come to wonder why Kronos hasn't? I still wonder to this day why they never got targetted by that massive DDoS attack that HRKO got.
Maybe its possibly because they are not making enemies with the wrong people. If I recall, Grobar was their only enemy and the guy is a joke.
I don't know about the whole YourKO thing but I've heard stuff of them DDoSing. Rather they still do it or not, I've no idea.
Edit : No, I highly doubt Kronos had thousands of dollars at their disposal to protect from DDoS at the start.
I think Kronos is succeeding well because they are good admins and listen to their players.
Actually, they are allowed to judge you and doubt how legit owner you would be. As most owners, they don't play this game at all , but you do. Not jumping to conclusions and tell people I know for sure you would abuse items with your friends, but it's very high chance.
You can get protection and pay less, don't buy same dedicated what other KO's might have. It won't take you anywere and basically why these turk servers is up and running more than a month is that they are all using same dedicated service and nobody dare to flood each other.
when kronos came out they had very shitty ddos protection but within a week or 2 with the donations they quickly moved to a very good ddos protection server which i think saved that server from failing.
Just curious.. but in all honesty to come out and say "we have twostars.." just really screams to me.. you aren't going to do much and it's basically twos server, and I guess be begging two to put the band aid on the mistakes you will make.. no offense to you. But that also just screams.. Please DDoS me to the floor, also while it's okay to be optimistic and think oh my server will get this far and survive this.. it's better to be a realistic on what happens. Will I play your server? Most certainly will, do I believe you can do it? Sure thing. But just remember.. having someone like two on your staff will make your server a highely targeted server, and always have a realistic view.. One last thing! When you ask for a vote from the community? Leave the poll open lol.. you asked old or new CZ and you decided after to two replies. You said you have been working on it for a while? Don't rush it. Let the community vote for days. Decide. Implement. Best of luck to you.. take what I say or don't.. but I have been through the same shit as a server owner.. and I have went through the experience and watched my hard work fly down the drain.. even tho I stabilized it.. If you have a perfect launch? I guarantee you will have the user count you wish..
Best wishes to you and your staff. All I am saying.
And no, its not to bandaid the mistakes, its for security and extra features to the server.
