Meh,, these are just my thoughts and my opinion on it. I would defenitely play on a server like that, sad that i don't have the powers to realize and actually create it.
I hope for creativity over events. Its been what, 10 years and still the very same shit going on and on.
If i see one more Kill/Find GM -event im going to start cutting myself. Whats wrong with GM's on that for real.. Takes like 5 minutes of brainwork to create better & funnier events than that shit.
I disagree with you Kallop imo sexyko didn't succeed for being first with usko skills working. In that case it wouldn't have failed so badly later on 18xx
SexyKO didnt fail for other server's either ,if i recall the servers that tried to take it down died within weeks , the main reason it died is because SexyReplay didnt care enough and the hype was gone. that is , and that's how every server's going to be NO MATTER HOW GOOD it is , you can always try the actual professor/Original KO method , merging after a few months and keep the hype for people that hopes at beggining , makes some cash and then quit , but meh .
You're all just stressing yourselves for no reason , if there's nothing to do move on already , there are way TOO MANY DIFFERENT TASTES when it comes about KO , but it has been proven that a PK Server has more chances to last than a farm server , a clear example would be EUKO when it launched, i remember it was QUITE HARD to find spots to exp , because all of them were taken already(both servers),hence ppl quitted after 1 month (euko-europe cz reached 150 at peak times if i remember correctly ,before the account i played got hacked ,and i was the 4th 80 of that server) , same goes to OSKO , wich started with something close to 800-1k users ,but it dropped badly after some weeks , while sexyko could maintain the 1-1.2k users for over 3 motnhs , then it dropped to 800ish , lowest were 500 at very late hours, and was like that for over a year , but SexyReplay didnt care enough of it as i said.
Finally, a fucking genius has came in. Stop with the damn farm servers.
There are like 5-6 PvP servers online currently, although most are Turkish. Why the fuck would anybody bother making another one?
SexyKO survived because of the hype. they gained a rich player base and some of the players liked it enough to keep playing although there was nothing to do really. Because these 500-600 players decided to stay and play on/off more players joined expecting stability and active PK. Which is basically all SexyKO had.
Also PendexO, Euro-PvP, X-Game and plenty of other Turkish PK servers succeeded and are/were really active. I'm not sure how Euro-PvP is doing now because of Knight Kingdom, but I heard the support ended and it was littered with hackers.
I dont wanna get into details , but SexyKO had inner problems ,at the point that turks stopped to trust on the administration staff , even tho we had a such great team (gotta admit they werent that active , but i believe in people like Soenne and CTU did a great job for the server) and a turkish moderator that never was a GM , but had nice leadership skills to manage people.
Nonetheless , i believe that started with the downfall of SexyKO , even if there wasnt hype(im telling you because i was an old player, i quitted and cameback countless times ) , so turks(the main sustain of a private server nowadays) started to leave , that's the main reason why sexyko started to get less people.
With all of this im just trying to let you know that most of us are on base 2(20ish years old) , even base 3 , wich means 90% of the people is a casual player ,thatd like to play just for a few hours , perhaps week and then leave , that's the average english community behaviour , so making a farm server nowadays is just for money hopers as statted on my previous post , a pk server would be the best chance for those that are casual players, those that study/work , has a girlfriend/bf in ur case kallop , a hobby , and just play KO for nostalgy , but nothing else , those real HARDCORE times wont come back ,as most of you has more responsabilities now , so just take KO like it is , as a GAME , do not stress yourselves on trying to get developers to make the PERFECT SERVER , because it wont happen , the humanity will bring corruption, lies , betrayers etc etc no matter how trusty you/they are, because its humanity , literally imperfection.
