I used to think this game was the best. You worked your ass off to level. Farmed like hell to get items. Gathered NP in CZ. GMs were banning people for KSing. What was KOSP? If you can kill TK, you were pro. Ive played for almost 2 years. I was never one of the MYKO people. I only came here because my friend (KillDanKill, Erian, tth05) introduced me to this game.
I'm all pimped out. Lvl 68, enough NP. Now what? Do I get to lvl 70 and 'enjoy' bloody beast? Do I spend my time PKing? Do I just farm all day long? For me, there is no award in this game. You get to lvl 70, after a year worth of xping and you get a skill. You use this skill to help you kill an orc in cz and you gain 50 np. Then what? What good is 50 np? I have 260k. Sure, its not the most, but its not little. What is 50 np? I farm for shard/raptors etc etc and make my first shard 7. Everyone appears with MD 8s. My friend starts to buy items for USD, then everyone has the same items. I lvl my ass off to get to 68. I see KOSP everyday. Our beloved GM, "Greenster" is MIA and comes online to ban my friend for shouting a KO4Life thread by accident. Ironicly, that thread was one in the cheater's section. He was banned unfairly and I try to help him out by contacting people that I think could help. But nothing is done. A week later, the entire event will be forgotten and hell never get his account back because a GM 'fucked up'. What if it happened to me? What if i wake up and my 2 years worth of work is gone. Will I get a rollback since im a premium user? hell no.
To be honest, this game isnt challenging at all. THERE IS NO SKILL. You all claim that skill is greater than items, but if two people played this game, one played for 1 year, 1 played for 2 years, there 'combo' wouldnt be that different. Its a matter of who step foot on cz grounds first and learned the rules and who stayed in eslant to level. CZ takes 2 months max before you can hold your own. But the main thing, its a matter of items. I know because when I got my items, I was almost unkillable if i didnt want to be killed.
This game has its good and its bad. Its simple, yet complicated in the first place. But no matter how much quality this game has, its pointless if you dont have a support.
It is a life drainer. At university, I go to classes and come back around 4. Hand out with friends till dinner time. Play some jitz, mah jong. Then because I have been doing it for so god dam long, I enter KO even though it may be 4 am in the morning. I feel that I, as well as many other people only play this game because we've been doing it for so long. Its a god dam chore. Why quit now? Because its the perfect time.
I've lost faith in the company. I've lost interest to the game. But most importantly, I've lost the fun of this game. Knight E4. CheckMate.
Good Game guys, Its been fun.
Special Thanks to Soc, Yun, Lutz, Phantom, Erian, tth05, KillDanKill, Waggy, C4pt4in, Rentz :wub:, abstrakt, Ari, Logoth, WildMongrel, and Aikon. You guys created me, taught me the way of the game. But most importantly, you guys taught me there are actually trustworthy people over the internet. Good Memories.
