    Default Gamersfirst Leak - I think we are being pulled behind theire asses !

    Okey, I think i speak for everyone when i say gamersfirst never really cared about the players. But this will just blow your mind :P


    Today i was surfing around on gamersfirst website and found something really intresting in the left bottom of the page.

    there was a link called Merchant Center.

    https://merchants.gamersfirst.com/Reseller/Packages

    https://merchants.gamersfirst.com/Cafe/Packages


    Athenrye (AKA USKO GM) stated that, K2 would in no way be responsible for selling gb's and items to players, because this is ethically wrong. They have a reputation to think of.


    I made a post the other day in ask the gm thread, asking how she could make such a statement. I brought up some stuff about GM's selling items which was prooved etc etc.

    My reply was deleted as soon as she saw it ^^, geez i wonder why :P



    So let's see here what k2 offers to internet café owners, and resellers of k2.

    • Exclusive Items - Your players will have access to items only available through the Premium Café Service
    • 20% More Experience - Your players gain levels 20% faster and this stacks with all other exp increases
    • 20% More Loot - Your players acquire item loot 20% more often and this stacks with all other item loot increases
    • Login Preference - Your players always skip the login queue and enter the game immediately

    • Player Premiums - Sell your players monthly subscriptions that complement your Premium Café Service
    • Player Items - Sell your players actual game items, some of which are exclusive to ESNs
    • Player Currency - Sell your players actual game currencies so they can buy the game items they want
    • Exclusive Bundles - Sell your players bundles of Premiums, Items, and Currency. These bundles are only available as ESN Pacakges
    in short words, a reseller of knight online. Have the possibility of selling GB's and Ingame items leagally !

    café players also get increased drop rate from bosses, and they can login with no premium, and get 20% exp bonus.


    im just questioning is this really right?

    and people wonder where the +9 / +10 items comes from........................

    I think sellig GBs is a good move on K2s part. People are buying them anyways....At least keeps the haxors away. And it is good business sense..look at Zynga.

    for sure makes the company more wealthy, but the point was. They stated they do not sell GB's to players at all. And well, it seems like they are just lieing.

    All corporations lie. It is just that K2 got caught. Seriously they can't even lie properly.

    I'm going to play devil's advocate here.

    The agreement states that Gamersfirst will sell the GBs to internet cafe owners. This assumes that cafe owners are technically not players and that cafe owners only provide a place/isp/network/pc for players to use - making them informal business partners with Gamersfirst.

    Essentially, Gamersfirst sells the GBs to cafe owners, technically not players (aka the middle man) who then sell them to the cafe users (aka players) for a profit.

    Your point? Just because they used a middlemen (aka internet cafes), they didnt lie towards their players? This is really fubar, first MMO company I see doing this openly. Corruption is everywhere, but to do it so openly is seriously fukked up

    I'm not even talking about the coin sell, but there is seriously something wrong with the fact that they sell items to internet cafes. The fact that they dont even specify what items they're selling makes me think the worse.

    And who is to say which currency they are selling? It's plural in the post, meaning there are more then one type of currency. Did you all forget about knight cash and G1 credits already? :S

    This actually blew me away. I mean, smart move on their part....but, damn. I wonder how long this has been going on. I'm thinking players are just pretending to be cafe owners and getting the items in-game. Could be a link to the +9 items?

    Seems their "merchant" manually activiates accounts.

    Maybe someone with an actual cafe can tell us what's on the other side?
