I need to get some shit off my chest. I've been playing KO for years now, and one thing I've always wanted to rant about is K2 and their company of professional scammers.
For those who are old in KO, you already know what's up. But 2 things happen when I try bringing this up in the official forums, and I have many times:
1. I get insulted by the ass kissers of K2, god I fucking hate them. They mostly consist of 12yo kids who hope K2 will reward them or make them a forum mod like that ass bandit "Chuckie!"
AND not OR
2. I get a 2 year suspension and my thread gets DELETED, not locked. No matter how civil I make it.
It is no secret that there is, and always has been massive GM corruption throughout KO. I think almost every old KO player has had some first-hand experience in witnessing it. KoK was actually very interesting when it started getting popular, because people started searching names of players who just wouldnt die and finding out they had a full +10 set of gear and some interesting rare items that could only be described as GM-produced.
I dont think most people understand how much money could be made being a GM alone. K2 probably pays pretty decent considering they rip off millions of people regularly + the tips turkish, chinese and american players will give for a *special* item. In most cases, K2 will just say it's a graphics glitch or a bug in transmitting codes to the website blah blah blah, or that the character is actually a GM character (then the character mysteriously disappears), OR do what they did and disable KoK from getting the latest up-to-date information so that they can continue their secret, and unfair business deals.
Out of the MILLIONS of people that play or have played this game, do you think none of them were rich and ABLE to afford a crazy item? Money is power, and K2 want it.
There have been speculation, accusations, but no solid proof (as far as i know) of K2 associating with gold farming websites or the popular hacking websites. However, if you add up the history of K2, try to find doubt in your heart that the rumors are true. The gold farmers DO provide the option for game developers to work with them, under a secret contract im sure. It is no secret that K2 would lose A LOT of business if anyone found out about it, I would even be disappointed enough to 100% quit but I wouldnt be surprized at all. That would explain how they were able to get a head start in most of the new servers, they were ALLOWED to pass by and they continue to ruin the game to the core. I know there are goldfarmers on this forum, but there's a difference between organized chinese hackers and an american who wants to make extra money. Both may look the same in-game, and the similarities end there.
K2 gave up on KO, long before it's players did. They will do what they can to keep KO's population count as high as possible with at the same time extracting as much money from them as they possibly can, but they know it's a dead game. They are just getting what they can before it shuts down.
Eventually, they will announce KO as a dead game and shut down all the servers and USKO will be MYKO, but leaving many more disappointed.
Time and history is my proof and evidence. I will try to get screenshots up in a couple weeks when im back from NC.
Honestly, I'm only playing because I know I can make some side-money from this game. Once everyone starts figuring out they can make free money from this game, that's when the downfall of it's success will start. And it's closeby.
I'm currently downloading LoL .... I hear good things.
Discuss, give your opinion, facts or flames..... this is just my own beliefs which really boils down to opinion, but I still think it's true.
