I think that the server is a great idea, and will be a lot of fun if it is managed even slightly better than the real KO.
These are some Ideas that would personally make the server more fun for myself.
In order for this server to be really fun it needs to be really competitive. Im guessing that many good players who got fed up with the real KO, with all its hacks and stupid updates will give this server a try. Which should help to make it competitive. But will that be enough? One large problem I see on the real servers is that their is often a clear dominant side, as in orcs or humans. The dominant side then gains more players and population in general. This makes for bad wars, and often bad PK. Forcing people to be orc or human is not really fair, and im not sure if it is even possible. I think i remember seeing nation transfers in the power up store for this server. I think that they should be relatively cheap to nation transfer so that it will be easier for players to switch sides to create more competition.
Upgrading and Max upgrades:
Another thought I had was the rebirth system. I know a lot of people don't like it because then everyone is running around with a glowing weapon. I am not even sure if it would be possible to add the rebirth system into this server, let alone the way i am going to suggest.
The server would be more fun for me personally if the rebirth system was introduced. However instead of being able to rebirth at +7 it would start at +8. Now this may seem stupid because weapons already have a special damage aura at +8. Well my idea is that you could go from RB+5 to RB+8. RB+8 being the max upgrade. RB+8 is obviously better than normal +8, but it is not so much better that it destroys competition. Now you may say a +8 user can kill a +9 user if they are skilled enough, and while this is true I am expecting this server to have a lot of skilled players. So even if you are very skilled, chances are the other person with the +9 item(s) will be too.
Rebirth + 8 weapons:
The best a dagger could be at RB+8 would be 109 AP, equivalent to that of a MD+9. Of coarse that would be an exceptional shard, which would be very rare in and of its self. It would be hard to get one to +8, and then to +8 RB.
The best a 2H spear for a warrior would be 195 AP, about equal to a +9 glave, but an exceptional Raptor, which just like the shard would be rare.
I don't know about other weapons, I just wanted to give a few examples.
For rebirth up grading I don't think there should be any tears of karibdis, making it very hard and risky to even attempt to go to +6RB.
Obtaining Rebirth Scrolls:
To increase the rarity of Rebirth items even further I think that RB upgrade scrolls should be a very rare drop only from bosses in CZ, or in abyss. And RB transformation scrolls should be even rarer drops.
I think that this would give many players a large challenge. Also I know many people find upgrading and the challenge of upgrading a very fun aspect of KO, and this would provide for more of that, while not creating any weapons that are "super" weapons.
I am unsure if this is even possible on this server. If it isn't I think it should be, but only to a certain extent. That extent is +1 uniques, no +2 or 3's. +1's are not exceptionally better than +0's, but would reward players for their time and efforts to collect uniques.
So in short I think that this servers competition needs to be able to be controlled by the players via low cost nation transfers. Items should not be allowed to go to +9, but a little better than +8's via the Rebirth system. And Uniques should be able to be compounded to +1 to reward players for their efforts to collect them.
Like I said at the beginning, these are things that If added to the server would make it more enjoyable for me personally. I did not say everybody. So if you don't like the ideas feel free to say you don't, but please don't flame or say that these Ideas are flat out retarded. Most of them are probably not even possible.
