Tell me this : What do you find offending in the name ApostleofEvil and DisciplesofEvil?
I can't think of a reason.
Well, it seems that K2 Network found a reason that the name was offending and decided to disband both clans. They disconnected all members and logged both clan leaders to disband the clans.
They actually came out of their way which is supposely banning people to say:"Hey, this clan name is offensive, let's disband it."
Now, we know that K2 Network is lazy and will probably not do anything to fix this injustice. But, I guess we prefer trying and failing than just not doing anything.

If the word "Evil" or numbers "666" or a "Pentagram" are offensive as a Clan Name or Clan Symbol, where does the End User Agreement say Disbanding the whole Clan is a punishment?

Now, if you don't care, please just pass your way, I'm not here so that we can fight between each other over trivial things that has no importance. Only fight I want to pick up against is K2.Dear K2 Staff,
There was a recent injustice perpetrated by one of your Game Masters. On the Ares Server, a Game Master disbanded two clans; “Deciples of Evil” and “Apostles of Evil.” The reason given was that the Clan Names violated the Naming Policy. However, Article (e) of K2’s End User Agreement clearly states that, “The Company reserves the right to delete, change, or require you to change, any vulgar or otherwise offensive Name.” It does NOT say that disbanding the clan is a possible punishment.
If The Clan Names “Deciples of Evil” and “Apostles of Evil” violated a Naming Policy, then your company is guilty of this also! In the world of Knight Online, there are Map Locations called “Hell Abyss” and “Temple of the Devil.” There are creatures named “Evil Wizards, Apostles, Apostles of Piercing Cold, Apostles of Flames, Hell Hounds, and Fallen Angels.” There are weapons named “Hell Breaker, B.astard Sword, Bipennis, Wrist Cutter, and Defender of the Lord.” In this game there are items called “Devil’s Marble, Prayer of God’s Power, Holy Water, and Holy Water of Temple.”
These Clans have had their Clan Names for over 3 and a half years now with absolutely no problems! These are GREAT people we are talking about here. Their only crime was having Clan Names that were similar in nature to Location, Creature, Weapon, and Item names that K2 used for Knight Online! Your company set the precedent for acceptable naming!
The Game Master in question abused his power! Many Knight Online customers, including myself, demand justice! The members of the clans in question lost many Clan Knight Points. We customers demand a full return of the lost Knight Points, help in recreating the clans with their original names, and most importantly, we demand a formal apology!
This incident has made us customers question the fairness, integrity, and logical reasoning of K2 Network. As previously stated, we are deeply upset and demand justice and full corrective action![/b]
