you all are setting yourself up for more dissapointment...
they say that they aren't going to be able to continue with development till after the holidays...which doesn't mean the patch will be ready then. it mean that the patch will resume development after the holidays...so who knows how long it will take till the patch is actually completed.
now with that said...they previously stated that it the release would be about a week after they were able to sucessfully install the patch.
so lets say it takes them another couple weeks AFTER the holidays, then they have to successfully install it, then maybe AFTER another week they will release logos.
when all is said and done, don't expect anything till 3 weeks or so after their holiday...which means the end of october.
also...i wouldn't count on anything K2 tells you anyways, they have had one excuse after another for eveything. K2 ALWAYS over promises and under delivers. its a common mistake among poorly managed companies.
hasten anyone else noticed they keep giving false promises over and over? this way they keep the players who might spend money on premium around here without just finding something else to do with their time and move on from KO. if they said honestly a realistic timeframe, they would loose quit a few potential premium buyers.
this game is so addictive that a monkey could publish it and still be somewhat successful. imaging hoe enormous the community would be if it was managed by professionals?? this game could have been GREAT. BUT now....it is becoming old, the graphics are becoming more and more outdated and the potential is slowly slipping away. they will milk it for what its worth for a long as they can, and you can bet that service or responsibility of K2 will ever get better for this game.
K2 handles a few games, not just KO. this game isn't on the top of the priority list because it has so many problems, they wont directly be able to make it any better. that's the dev's jobs. don't expect things to get better, they will get worse and worse until eventually KO is shut down because the community is so small that people get bored.
which brings me to another point....the newest server pathos is slow as snail snot because the gms on pathos actually do their job...therefore there are less players because a large part of the KO community wont play without cheats. as it has been said b4, many of them play at cafe's which charge by the hour, and people just cant afford to be a top player that way.
don't you think releasing ANOTHER server will make the community that much smaller??? well... it would unless they don't hire many gms to police it, so you can also expect a great deal of cheaters. without the cheaters, the community will become too small to sustain interest in the game. people on pathos are very very bored because its always the same 40 people in CZ. diluting this pool of players will just make things worse.
so why would K2 open a new server then? simple, they get a rush of premium buyers who want to lvl to the top. every new server gets a rush of people that think they will be the best clan, the king etc...and the only way to do that is to have premium until you are done lvling. so after awhile, old servers have less and less premium buyers. keep opening new servers, and you keep the premium coming in.
the life span of KO is not much longer, things will slow down over the next year or two until people move on to other games. in the meantime, they are just trying to milk it for all the money they can.
its just business. it makes sense, i would do the same for strictly business reasons....but that doesn't justify the the lies, fraud and way they treat their customers though. that's just poor management on their part, they loose a lot of money on this game sue to lack of customer support. they are smart in some ways and absolutely ignorant in others. obviously a new company with inexperienced management.

I can't believe how right this guy realy is o_O Hurts me to see how far this game has gone beyond repair
This was posted on the Logos section on the official forums.. The KOL-Admin is pushing his luck over there to the limit. How long could it take before the community stops believing the shit thats been coming out of K2's ass? Y'all need to wake up!!
