I can't believe how much you guys care about this game. I can understand not wanting your years of effort and money to go down the drain, but this game has gone on for far too long. MGAME, K2, NTTGAME. They are all the same. They really don't care about you the player, and are only in it for the money. How long did it take NTTGAME to finally implement King Elections? As far as I know there isn't even CSW. How many years has K2 been selling illegal items as well as trying to cash in as much as they can through the PUS? Same goes for MGAME. Takes them 2 years to make a worthwhile patch and even then they still manage to break more than they fix with their "patches". Let's make a summary of the current events, shall we?
1. K2 decides to copy data such as user information, billing information and who else knows what, and then proceeds to change the admin passwords on the servers containing that data, effectively locking MGAME out of their own files.
This is the first time in my history of MMO Gaming, that I have seen something as ridiculous as this. Who in their right mind does something like this, and expects to get away with it? This is just a glimpse of how horrible of a company K2 is and it's sad that I still see people trying to defend K2 so they can continue playing USKO. Why would you defend a company like this and knowingly give them your information as well? From 2009-2011 K2 generated millions of dollars and payed MGAME royalties of $1,903,254.07. Who the hell knows how much K2 themselves made during that time period.
2. MGAME decided that since k2 wasn't going to pony up their royalty payment, they would terminate the contract and sold a license to NTTGAME aka Game Cafe Services LLC. Which in turn made K2 decide that they had a rightful claim since the contract hadn't actually expired(It is due to expire December 3, 2012.) and are now counter-suing MGAME for $12,008,395 USD, citing irreparable damage. Yes that is right. 12 million dollars. How K2 believes they are even going to see that amount of money is beyond me, considering what they did to MGAME. I can understand where they are coming from since they were under the knowledge that their contract was exclusive, but this counter-suit is just them trying to save face and look like they actually have a claim for why they did what they did regarding the server hacking/lockout.
How anyone can defend this game anymore is beyond me. I'm all for discussing these lawsuits, but seeing people try to defend 1 company or the other is really weird to say the least, if not unbelievably stupid. These companies are just here for a quick cash grab, nothing more. I'm not saying that all companies are good or don't have problems, but there are so many games out there with companies that actually know what the hell they are doing and provide support for the game without trying to screw you out of $.
Lol @ calling each other dumb. This thread has brought about one good thing, The lulz.
