I think K2 has some choices to make regarding KO in 09, there is wide spread cheating and bug abuse going on from cutbacks in expenses ie; non renewal of xtrap license no real gm precense on servers. A new low in population was achieved today 17,011 people logged in across all 31 servers today 12pm pst 10 pm eest (turkey time or prime time) down form 40k in November and down from 120k in 2006. I think its time for server mergers! Merge the existing 31 servers into 10 - 12, with 10 - 12 servers they would be able to reduce expenses boost gm prescence and possibly renew an anti cheat program again xtrap punk buster, they would gain player confidence and possibly turn the sinking ship around. If the numbers keep dropping this game will close its just a matter of that annoucement on the news section showing up one day.
