It's been 4 months now since I actively played KO (I was playing WoW) and I think I'm ready to return. A few of my friends convinced me to come with them and try the game again because WoW's PK is a sorry joke that stopped being funny long ago.
I'm glad to see that many people I knew are still around, and at the same time sad to see that many more are not. It is very tiring to play a game that is full of cheating, but if you're doing it with friends, I believe it can still be done. And let's face it, there's a lot of people running around in cz now that don't appear to know how to change camera views, let alone PK effectively. Offsetting my numerous deaths (to lag of course, I never lose! :P ) shouldn't be a problem.
I've tried three times now to quit this game and failed every damn time, so that says to me, either I suck at quitting, or this game is damn fun, and I prefer to think its the latter. :lol:
I'd like to ask most of you why you're still around, though I imagine the answer may be because of friends, because of fun PKing, because of the time and money spent already, etc. I think I play because this game is FUN. It's simple, it's fast, it's furious, and a real blast to play, especially if you mix in some alcohol (but stay away from the anvil if you do that last part h43r: ) I don't play this game to be the best (and it's a good thing, because if I did, I failed miserably :lol: ) I play it because it's the best MMO I can find out there for a die hard PvPer like myself.
So in closing, replies to this thread should be 'I play KO because...' And if this happens to get moved to off topic, well, I noticed that not every post in this section is 100% on topic so I felt justified putting it here. If anything I'd like to provoke a discussion of nostalgia and the good old days and how much this game used to ROCK (not that it still doesn't, of course )
See you all in game.
