    I've been playing this game for a LOOOONG time. Long enough that I remember the debate over combo back when someone first figured out they could cancel the animation and use another attack.

    So lets think about this for a minute.

    In most MMORPG's the mages rule the place. Nobody else has a chance against a high level mage with good items, they'll simply flatten you like a steam roller. A melee type can't even get to them to cancel their attacks.

    Combo evens up the playing field tremendously in KO. IMHO, combo gives melees an advantage under lvl 60, and keeps things pretty even above those levels.

    But combo was called cheating and hacking when I started playing. This debate over combo went on for MONTHS, and the GM's finally ruled that it was legal, since it didn't affect cool down times but only how fast a rogue or warrior could discharge all skills. Besides, there was no real way to catch anyone using combo.

    Combo is a SKILL you have to LEARN, it isn't given to you as a gift by the server gods. This makes for a different level of skills even when characters are otherwise identical. People PRACTICE combo, you must practice to get good at it. (I'm fairly good at it myself.)

    I believe combo is what made the PVP system in KO what it is (was? ). And combo was NOT intended by the programmers of the original game, it was an accident.

    The best PVP system I've ever played, and it was a complete accident. What a laugh.

    I remember the continuous disputes over combo on forums. Of course back then i didn't know how to combo and wasn't exactly sure what it was.
    Indeed KO's comboing and whole PvP is one of the best there is so far. I agree that it's odd that all the best things happen by accident, but that's the way life is. ^_^

    I do belive that K2 anounced that combo wasnt bannable and it was part of the game.

    It was a large debate about combo, but Mgame told K2 that even tho it wasn't meant to be part of the game, combo was legal and not bannable

    The 2 main targets in cz are Bp's and mages. Why? Low defense, a quick kill, easy np. But get in the way of a lvl 75+ bp or 75+ light mage, and your in trouble.

    ROFL, now that's funny!

    Anyways, Right click minor made rogue the best class, people got jealous, cause they got raped or didnt know how to use right click minor. And they 'fixed' that.
