be honest with yourself, their funding is justified.
if i knew of a hosting company with exclusive rights to notable korean made titles, that could on paper prove a considerable amount of profit and constant client base, with a minimum amount of actual costs in providing, and i had a comfortable stack, looking to invest with contracts no doubt set in stone, for considerable and steady flow of return, I'd invest. Dragon's den eat your heart out. Just think about it this way, who's making the scrolls you buy, the services you get with your money, no one, in terms of internet connection/bandwidth/hardware, filter in the few customer support agents and building costs, K2 absorbsa small percentage in relation to their future return. Think outside of the KO box, there's more games with more buyers. 10 mil accounts ? ouch. even if 60% are bogus. 4 mil, uniques that at some point will spend their parents or their own money to play a computer game, sign me up! good business practice, attract em with free incentives, and constantly tighten the pen till you can milk em for all they're willing to drop.
lol, way 2 bored.
and they just fired half of there csc staff as im told by a friend ........i guess the 16m could get used more to play guys who barely can answer why my account is in use ?
they are fags period
yeh they are rich as shit... They says, that there is 1million who play KO. And they removed all the 3rd servers = it will be hard to log in whitout premium = at least broze prem to log in when ever you want to. and thats just 1 million x 8$. So.. And alot buy more than just a Bronze prem..
K2 are wery rich! They own about 12% of the mmorpg market, with the big boys being WoW, Second Life and Guild Wars. In total, they have 4.25 million players paying for premium :S...Turkish population: 71 million.
