They likely won't be
Talks with Mers says a shitton of accts had bottomed out on KC when Sparta's market crashed. People bought 5k kc for 1gb etc
so hes saying if he allows old accounts to keep kc he wont make money (which is where I come in)
thats why theyre going through this huge hassle of new acct and auto acct creation on login
EDIT: okay so looks like they will say "EVERYONE WANTS FAIR SERVER SO WE DECIDE FRESH START NO KC"
Then that's stealing money from the playerbase.
Whether someone stacked a shitload of KC in-game, or someone purchased an amount of KC from PUS in sparta's last days, it is still stealing.
I sure hope that nothing like this happens. You could always implement a soft reduction of like 80% existing KC + 2000 KC or something. (guy with 50k KC will have 12k now, guy with 5k will have 3k).
In any case, scamming everyone is not the way to go.
Here's my 2 cents. It doesn't make that big of difference on fairness if you wipe everyone's KC. The people who had the most KC stored from previous servers would buy nevertheless more KC than lets say average user.
But by doing that, you will destroy one of the best concepts of oldschoolko -servers. And that's being the idea of player having just 1 account that can be used for all osko -servers and make the purchases from the same account aswell.
One thing i'm really hoping to get fixed is favourism towards familiar players/clans. For example it took OSKO -staff 5 minutes to ban tbl -mage from "lesser" clan, meanwhile it took 2 weeks to ban mages with same violations from BloodyMary -clan.
Also I'm playing the beta. I like what I'm seeing and I got heaps of bugs ready to post, but it wouldn't be nice to help just to get scammed later on... I wouldn't want to help a server like that to succeed lol.
So professor, can you clear this up?
