Honestly, how could you ever think K2 cared about the game?
its not easy as you think,as i know there are like 5k+ chinese farmers' accs botting on all server,plus like 50% turks are hackers(no offensive but its the truth),so i guess their job is tough.Also i heard most farmers got banned before they get lvl 70 on old servers,so i guess they are actually working on it.
actually its more easy then u think. Sience the most tr ppl use koxp if they ban all they lose bucks. Just think a moment why they changed the 3rd party punishment from ban to 100 jail methods ? There are even known players in cz with simbols using koxp for minor thinks like speed pots etc. , what happen if they ban all ?
Also there are lot of op players with chrs. farming with koxp ahh btw i got few days ago a pm from a nazi simbol oposite nation... So take a clue. Sry for lang im on phone xd.
Why incur additional costs when they were making a nice healthy profit with no long term interest in the game? You're looking at it from the wrong perspective. In the long run customer reputation and brand power make a difference. But in the short run, it just isn't like that. They are morally wrong but strategically they made so much money with so little effort and costs. From a business money making perspective, lets just say they were very astute.
That is assuming, that all their cash is coming from Knight online solely, which it wasn't. By the sounds of it, they're actually pretty smart.
And it's not so obvious as you can tell plenty of english speakers have played this game with such a passion, I would suspect others would have been drawn to it too if not for all the cheating and turkish language.
It was doing fine before the turkish invasion. Huns destroying everything in their path. Though it may seem nice now that they populate the servers, they are also the ones who caused them to be empty of english players in my honest opinion.
A new player starts and gets pmed s.a o.ç siktir git see how long he stays to find an english player.
Gross Profit is literally just how it sounds. It's the total profit your business makes on selling product/s. It doesnt include any deductions for tax/overheads/contractual agreements rawr rawr rawr.
K2 didn't operate out of Turkey. That article was mainly about the turkish government being greedy cunts. K2 didn't have to pay shit.
Turks are the only thing keeping this game remotely alive, if it wasn't for turks this game would have died 2 months after release. Graphics are shit, playerbase is shit, pk is shit, combo is shit, leveling is shit, economy is shit. KO aint drawing no-one in, ever. Anyone and everyone should be able too see that, what they did was smart.
Why the fuck are you still on these forums if all your going to do is rag on KO. The stupidity of that decision amazes me.
Because i'm bored at work, so offering my insight on a forum seemed like a decent way to keep me entertained. Anything else, sir?
I think the real question to people that oppose what i said, would be, how are all the things i mentioned good?
Name one other game that actually takes any skill that is not a first person shooter other than Knight Online?
