Should have done this ages ago. Just keep it up some months and watch goldfarmers crying.
Servers will be live in about 20 minutes!
Getting closer to a fix for the gem issue. A patch is forthcoming. Thanks for hangin' in there.
Always the BS talk they say, ''we getting close to fix it !'' WELCOME 10 NEW BUGS!
yea, but what about buying merchants? they can be passed through them. Many (legit) ppl have buy merchs for cheap ed uniques.. they will prolly get fucked badly when k2 deletes all the bugged stuff.
Also all these cheaters can easily make lvl 30 chars and pass on the +3s to dozens of accounts.. Really bad move by k2 with leaving buy merchs operational.
the game sux, plain and simple, im quitting fo sho
From news on official website. As trade is still disabled it may not be over.
Over the weekend an urgent server patch was applied to correct the exploitation of gem fragments. Disappointingly, we found a number of players complicit in exploitative activities, and thus were forced to perform a large amount terminations. Such activity is a very serious matter, and a strict violation of our Terms of Service. As always, we urge players not to participate in such obviously illegal behavior – it’s not worth risking your account. Should any future situations arise similar to this matter, bear in mind that we do review all logs related to exploits and will take appropriate actions when warranted, including terminating accounts. Due to the dire nature of such behavior, accounts terminated for reasons such as this are ineligible for restoration.
To the majority of the playerbase who refrained from participating in the exploit and actively worked to assist the team in correcting it, we thank you, and wish you continued success in Knight Online!

it is for small time disabled, they have to repair it...Like quests... so BB trade for 1 year ..
From Athenrye's ask the GM thread. just now.
On the website is a post about Gem Exploitation. Its sounds like bans have been done. What stage is it at?
The banning process will be occurring in stages. The first portion is already done; MGAME extracted the game data related to the Chaotic Generator and put that information through a search threshold, which gave us a comprehensive list of every player who used the Generator within a given time frame. Those determined to have been exploiting have been banned, resulting in over 1200 accounts having been terminated
The next step is trade log searching, which is already underway. That same bit of data extraction MGAME did for us also gave us a complete list of every item produced by the Chaotic Generator within the given time frame. Not only will this let us delete all of those items reliably, it will also let us see who has them or who's hands they've been passed through. So all those 'legit' clans who were running buying merchants back and forth between the Generator and the Inn Storage NPC all day did was waste their time and leave a huge paper trail. More bans will be coming soon.
yet they seem to do nothing about the huge koxp problem
well selling merchant is back they finally fixed it !!
