I start to play Knight Online, now Knight Empire 26.03.2005.
I was noob as many others, and in this days, noobish period last much longer than now (there was no apos partys in EMC (aka Piana)).
This game was (now its not same situation) Free to Play (F2P).
We use to see Game Masters (GM's) more often than now.
And...nobody tell us nothing about game.
Now...1 year later, after many hours and days of playing, I have (and I'm sure that many others have) much more to say and learn new players about this game.
You can play with couple of charachters, but ppl mostly decide to start leveling only one charachter. When u see start geting some good skills, u start to love fact that u have skills better than some other player, and try to have all skills. Specially when u see list of all skills.
But, horibble thing is...that your character can be baned (blocked) for any TOS (Terms of Servis, i think) violation...and "few" reasons more. Noone need to explain u why, where and how u r baned. and...if u get baned...u became history. U can say last "hello" to ur good friends (like I did )
This game is not like others. Here is too small people who work like "police department", and there is plenty of criminals. There is so much criminals, that GM's are almost blind of it. Organisation is on very low level:
And...its funny when You think about K2 at all.
They have some GM's who are online 1-2 hours per day (not even every day). Are that GM's work pro bono or for money? Are they having work time? Can't they give job to somebody who will work full time (8 or 10 hours per day)? I know ppl who will work like GM's for 500 euro/month 8 or 10 hours per day. That is money of only 25 premiums.
At official forum they have moderators (in same time GM's, like Mahina) that don't answers on topics. I can understand that GM don't wanna answer on PM in game...but SOME answer on SOME topic on server...
WHO ARE THEY?
They are invinsible. I hear for them that much rare, that I think they are ghosts.
And, we all was thinking: hey, this is f2p (free to play) game, of course that is only few ppl in support. F2P? Think twice...if u don't have premium, for some time u was unable to login on d1. Now u can't log in on d1 AND d2. Cannot login at all. MAYBE u can log on d3, like non-premium, after xx spaming attempts.
Ok...this game is not free anymore. Ok...we must pay to play...ok, ok....BUT WHERE IS MORE SUPPORT NOW? NOW, they have money to pay them...where r they?
(I start Anarchy Online to see what kind of game is that, and in 3th minute of playing some guy start me and offer me online help (..."yes, I'm human, I'm not computer, You can ask me anything if u need help"...)..."
One of best things, and advantage on others, is that u need to play very long to be highest level in game.
But...u can lost everything in split second.
So...be carefull when u start to love this game!
It is nice, it is funny, and its criticly dangerous.
Be smart, don't expect far play.
