beat baba is still attached to the gameYes still playing I am mostly playing Hammer and AOC but still have a nerfed Beat on Pathos, I do hope it does not end, and my last point to profitability, Ko Funds the other games that k2 runs games like sword and MU so to figure out there over all profitability you have to look at what these games are generating if anything and the overhead involved. Intel was/is there investor who came in with 10mil for equipment, marketing blah blah blah, fired most of the cali staff and ran all gms', cs out of India and now have a say in how the company is run. The expansion is in the licensing deal its not like Mgames is sitting there developing new content it was released in Japan and Korea in 07. And correct me if I am wrong but isnt there a bunch of stuff you mentioned going on in KO that was going on in My? except for the crazy promotions or is 180 days of plat, gold not considered crazy promotion to raise money quickly. The best thing that could happen for ko is if k2 actually aquired the rights to the game from mgames and were able to become the developer so that they could take it over and run it without being relient on Mgames for fixes.[/b]
ur info u got seems kinda realistic cuz i bet u get em from Debbie and i kinda agree with u about KO population decrease.
and what proves it is the massive number of ppl quitting and selling their items nowadays (just go check market place)
but it seems K2 r trying their best to hold on their games players and try to find many ways to increase their funds and best example is allowing the trade of chars and stuff by putting the Cypher Ring thing.
Cuz they dont want these chars to be left out but instead to be taken by other players who will continue to supply them with $$$ by buying prem.
p.s say hi to debbie for me and tell her ken still loves ya
