  1. This went too far. Topic closed and infractions given. We can't do much on what goes on in private messages and direct flaming specific against a person, but generally name calling, flaming and bashing a whole nation and religion on "all chat" will lead to a mute so actions will be taken by the staff.
  2. idea for pk

    Hello KUMARBAZ, First of all, thanks for creating this thread filled with suggestions. I'll adress some of your points and also give everyone some perspective on what's coming. - About the boss wars: I'm sorry but it's nice to have a change of PK zones every now and then, it breaks the routine and it's only one day of the week after all. - Ultima: we'll update its drops before NERFing the mob. - Felankor: Telling the time for every boss is not good. It's part of the game to camp CZ and wait for it. This also provides a longer stay in the zone. - Turkish GM: We are and have always been looking for one but it is extremely hard. We can't find one that speaks both english and turkish with fluency and also has a personality that matches our way of doing things. - Turkish community: the amount of support we receive from them is amazing. If you could only see how much compliments we receive on facebook and even here in the forums every now and then. The problem is that they all have one thing in common which is asking for a new server. Our facebook's page inbox is filled with messages asking for that, they all want a fresh start which is something that we can not give them. But with that being said, we are currently working on a new expansion, and this one will be big. From improving the beginner gear to releasing UTC and lots and lots of new and original features. All this will be properly advertised when the time comes
  3. I apologize for the very late answer in this thread. The thing is, we don't want to NERF this mob based on this reason. We feel like it's part of the PvE to gather people and add efforts to take down a big boss. With that being said, we'll work on improving its drops (including ultima's chest exchanges) asap. Best regards, Vivaldi.
  4. Hello Dragon, we will still use the Darkness Weapons but in other forms. There won't be any farming for that we will reward them straight up at +11 and with expiration times just like it was on halloween event. One small example is we'll automatically add them for players who're top ranked on the last day of the month. Also for weekly manual events that GMs will run and many other ways that we'll implement. This will all come in our next expansion. Stay tuned!
  5. Let's not mistreat other people's suggestion, please. Ouss, we understand that it can be frustrating to join an old server but as you know we strive to bring KO players a long lasting, stable, secure and, most of all, trustworthy server. Not only that but there's still much to come to ApexKO. We got Castellan coming and after that UTC expansion so we have no plans to relaunch or launch a parallel server. Best regards, Vivaldi.
  6. It's already removed for that specific time. Pending on a server restart to take effect.
  7. 1) Name change was only added on our last small expansion as a gift to bring mage clans back to help them add their name tags, which is something that they enjoy. That is not something for people to count on to use whenever they want, it was an incentive for them log and come back seeing that there was a deadline added to it. 2) There is no need to delete unecessary drops, they don't replace the drop rate of their main items. They are separated into groups and the drop rate is stable and fixated at 35%. 3) Ultima will never be removed. The effect of adding that to bowl was extremely positive. The amount of PK it generates is really good. And also, Ultima in bifrost is still there, so it does not depend on the one in bowl. People can still go to bifrost and hunt it in peace. 4) As soon as we release the new client I got some new ideas ligned up for bifrost already. 5) About felankor, it's not that people only enter CZ when it's felankor time it's actually that MORE people enter cz on felankor time. Both Felankor and Ultima increase the average activity of CZ. They concentrate large amount of players around those times, which is great. Without it, it wouldn't be concentrated and crowded but just spreaded throughout the day and therefore lower. Only thing I can think of to change is randomize Ultima to spawn randomly in the course of an hour but that may cause conflicts with events. EDIT: About NTs, those who say that right now is bad is because they didn't see how it was in the past when controled by GMs. It was a huge mess and constantly unbalanced. People need to understand that it's not easy to have a server balanced 24/7. It's practically impossible. A party of 8 that decides to join at a random time have the power to completely shift it. I'll raise its cost to 16 gbs though to see if it helps. Best regards, Vivaldi.
  8. Since it's just a screenshot I can't really tell for how long they were there and also it's just something minor for being the first time. Still, if they repeat this I'll instantly take action. Thanks for your report, if they repeat this abuse I'll apply a temporary ban.
  9. Hello Apexians, in this tutorial I'll cover the use of "Character Seal Scroll". This scroll is an item that you can get at our Power Up Store and is used to select one of your characters to be put inside a "Cypher Ring". With this done you'll be able to move, trade or merchant your character as you wish. In order to use it you'll have to go through these basic steps: 1) Acquire the scroll that is located at the Power Up Store, on the 4th page of the "Power-up" tab or simply type its name on the search box to quickly access it. 2) After purchasing the scroll and receiving the letter containing it, go to an Inn Hostess and select the option "Character Seal / Cancel" 3) The following window will then pop-up. Click "Seal" to start the process of sealing the character you want. Note that you can not seal the character you are currently online, only the side ones! 4) Put your Character Seal Scroll in the designated spot and hit "ok". 5) The following window will pop-up. In this window you will choose which of your side characters you'll want to seal. After selecting your desired option click "seel" and then enter your seal code (same one you use to normally seal items) and press "Confirm". 6) The character you opted to seal will be now inside a new item called "Cypher Ring". If you right click it it will show what is inside it. The whole description of the character inside including the contents of its inventory as displayed below: Your character is now successfully sealed. 7) To unseal it just follow step "3" again but pressing "Unseal" instead. That's all there is to it. A very simple process. Best regards, Vivaldi.
  10. Added the answers in bold text.
  11. Not really, everything is there.
  12. What would YOU like to see next?

    This is a good idea, I'll mention it to twostars to check if he finds it viable. Note that right now only the clan leader and assist have control over clan bank which is just a way for the leaders to have more control over it. Nath, the way I thought about this is that Warriors and Priests are a bad class to solo mobs for farm but they fit perfectly well when put together and with this in mind I made sure that the drops are the same exact rate as if they were alone in the the mob. What I mean is, having those different drops in the same mob doesn't supersede the other so this actually help both classes. This thread is quite old so I'm locking it, you can keep sending suggestions on the proper section. Best regards, Vivaldi.
  13. Yet another d3d9.dll Error

    Nath, I forwarded your issue to our admin. We'll sort it out asap.
  14. Mellanox - Guy (now Shroud)

    I understand. Aesteris just wasn't aware about that case since it was twostars who had solved it. So he simply didn't have knowledge about that one. Ok then, topic locked now.
  15. Mellanox - Guy (now Shroud)

    You quoted the same exact thing again. Either make your point or I'm closing this topic since our reply with the detailed explanation why is given and final.
  16. Mellanox - Guy (now Shroud)

    I don't see what your point is in quoting this Private Msg. It only states in a summarized form what I previously said.
  17. Mellanox - Guy (now Shroud)

    I agree with you. We only helped with that case because it was quickly informed and items did not get inject into the market it was a simple trade to revert. And this is not going to happen again, we admit that we should not have helped in that case and we won't ever again. Everyone makes mistakes, we are not exempt from it.
  18. Yet another d3d9.dll Error

    Hello, Nath I'm sorry since you already said it but, are you really sure your anti-virus and firewall are fully disable? Pleace double check it, try to google it to make sure because this is indeed a problem related to firewall deleting this file. After you double check, fully uninstall and reinstall the game. If the issue persists I'll ask an admin, with your permission, to log in TeamViewer with you to try to fix the issue. Best regards, Vivaldi.
  19. Mellanox - Guy (now Shroud)

    Hello, this case has been dragging for way too long even though we have already given our final answer. We have no grounds here to remove items from the user that acquired them in a legal trade or to reimburse them to you. I'll try to explain it again the best I can so you and everyone else understands it. It shouldn't be hard since it's a very simple case. You gave your items to user "X", using the ingame "trade" feature -> items are now legally in possession of user X. He owns them. You gave it to him on your own will. The server holds no responsability of what a person does with their items. No hacker invaded the account and took the items due to a breach in the server, in this case we would promptly recover you EVERYTHING as soon as we would be able to. User X claiming to return you the items after w/e period is not nearly enough for the server to act upon it. This is a deal between both of you, we have no means to intervene. And if we did intervene in cases like this, can you see how much room for more and more scam cases it opens? We'd have to deal with every player after random trades just saying "he was supposed to give me "this" but he didn't" or "I just lent that user these items and he was supposed to return it to me by now!" or whatever else they'd come up with. It would create an extreme mess on the market and reflect on players that are not even related to it. It's just not feasible. And this is not something that WE, Apex, specifically don't follow. No other game would take action in any matter similar to this one. Now, as for what you consider to be "new evidence", again, it really isn't. Him acquiring an item on a boss and not sharing with the party is obviously immoral but not ilegal, it just means that he is generally a bad person from our point of view. Claiming that he bought something from someone, again, he can claim whatever he wants and same goes for his nationality. To picture this case even better and maybe make you finally understand WHY we can't do it just take a look at this: We didn't do anything on that case as well and it involved you this time. For the same exact reason as the above. It is just not feasible. The players are in charge of who they send their items to, the players are in charge of who they decide to share their account with. Please try to understand this, we don't do this because we're "lazy", "have no intention of helping", "we don't care" or whatever else you might think. These are just guidelines we have to follow because they're logical and quite obvious in order to keep a safe and fair gaming environment. To summarize everything I just said: The server holds no responsability between personal, legally performed, ingame trades. Best regards, Vivaldi. PS.: I will leave this topic open for longer incase people still have any doubts regarding this matter, or if they think this is unfair I'll try to explain it and debate it further but, honestly, this should be crystal clear by now.
  20. Error occured

    Hey there, Please send me a PM with your account ID, e-mail that you're using and also the link that the server is sending you. best regards, Vivaldi.
  21. OoooMLoooO, Altering cooldowns in ApexKO is practically impossible. We have all that fully secured. But I still did the search on the user and nothing was out of place. We appreciate your report and if you have any others we will also check it out, but be sure that you're playing in a safe enviroment. Best regards, Vivaldi.
  22. My goal is to have everything sorted out and ready untill this Friday, at most. Can't state this with 100% certainty because I'm depending on other people.
  23. First of all, we aprreciate you suggestion, @BulletClub, but there're a couple of issues with it that it'll prevent us from implementing it. First and main one being that this will favor even more the big party formations and clans and also the veteran players, which is something that always needs to be avoided. This reason alone would be enough to not implement such feature but also, meat dumplings are really easy to acquire and stock so the part that you said that the "trade in" for this would be receiving less NPs won't really happen. The good news is that we're working on a couple of manual events to host that will increase both farming and PK activity, we're just waiting for some final touches on the dev side of it to bring them in properly. Best regards, Vivaldi.
  24. Hello and thanks for opening a topic bringing us suggestions. I'll try to adress them in the best way possible. 1) I'm working on bringing manual events made by GMs to the server. Those include: "Kill the GM", "random collection of materials" and maybe "find the GM". All that is left to accomplish this is nail the proper time and day to start consistently hosting them. You can expect this to happen by next week; 2) We don't believe that spreading the population of the server between different areas is a good thing; 3) This will only make the balance worse seeing that clans would be stuck for a full month in one side preventing them to NT accordingly. This is currently not an issue. There are times that it's properly balanced and times that it isn't. It's something that is impossible to stay perfectly stable for the 24 hours of the day. Sometimes you'll see more orc than humans and sometimes more humans than orcs, it's natural. 4) We believe that Duration Pots creates an unbalance between classes, specially the assassin class which benefits from it the most. For that reason we avoid adding this feature to ApexKO. Best regards, Vivaldi.
