    Default Global/US KO => TRKO

    Not sure what order they came but the Turkish adds on launcher is the latest one.
    1. Turkish customer support added
    2. Turkish GM's added
    3. Turkish forum added
    4. Redirected to Turkish site "ekolay" after exiting game
    5. Turkish ads on launcher. Seriously, wtf? http://img38.imageshack.us/img38/1854/123rgs.png

    I know that technically it is Global Knight Online and the players adapted it as USKO. However, I see no attempts to include any other languages such as Dutch, German, French, Spanish, etc. So why the hell are they whoring out Turkey? Sell outs.

    I don't really mind most of the points but the Turkish GM notices and Turkish ads on launcher is REALLY pushing it. It's annoying as fuck.

    its pretty simple business.

    You take a look at who is buying your product with cash and you target that audience.

    If the game is hosted at usa, doesn't means it has to be wholethrough english. But on the other hand it doesn't mean it should be turkish either O.o. Imo it should stay english as it's the international language. But yea... USKO has been reffered to as TRKO for years by now so... make ur call

    basicaly it goes like this, (and this goes by language not counrty) u got turks at 80% of the players, then u got ppl who speack spanish at about 7%, the english speaking ppl at bout 7% and then u got ppl from other countries for the other 6%(thats like the Europeans and other places). so ye its basically maximizing profit by putting Turkish advertisement in the game that a large majority of turks play. i mean i would do it, and so would any other business.
