Could you Imagine if knight Online became "Non Profit Knight Online?"
Yeah, i said it. It sounds crazy doesn't it? Imagine if Knight Online was run as a Non Profit Organization, but YOU COULD STILL DONATE. All of the shit that everyone does for KO they would do it for free. The only thing that would be paid for is of course the servers and that stuff. The people though that are doing all the work on the servers and all that jazz do it for free. All of the money that you donate would go to your own personal account that you would open up when you registerd an account. IDk maybe KO made a contract with a bank? or maybe it establishes its own banking system :P IDk. Anyways I think that the servers should be wiped clean after a few years and everyone has that x amount of dollars that you spent on the game returned to you at a certain percentage. That percentage would be determined after they figured out what the cost of the server and maintenance etcc was. they would subtract the cost of the server from the total amount of money collected by everyone and then whatever % the damage were, they would take that percentage from each persons account monthly, or however long the payments are on the server. Now you have X amount of dollars in your bank, a brand new KO server to start playing on again and trying to fight to be the best on the server. Man that sounds like fun to me. I dont have to worry about selling my items on the server i just played to make money to play the new server coming out. Every server would start fresh and you'd get X amount of dollars back that you spent on the PUS throughout however long the server went for. How long do you think the servers would theoretically run for if this idea was Plausible?
oh and BTW... I'm high ^^..... Tell me its not an amazing idea though? whho wouldn't want to play this game? even if you started 1 year before the server was going to wipe and the servers full of lvl 80's and blah blah you could just be a RLB character for the year or ardream, and then the server wipes you can go for 80 then. I also believe that this idea would almost completely remove any people spending money on the game other than for the PUS. ie buying weapons and armor for their own money on these forums :P Who would spend money on an item, only for it to be deleted soon? I guess people on private servers do, but this is different :P maybe this should be a private server thing? i think too many people would play it for it to be a private server though.
Alright i'm done typing. I'm tired and high and i want to go to sleep. Dont tell me its not a good idea though ^^ goodnight!
