    Vivaldi got a reaction from HANGOVER in Eden&HANGOVER vs Elior&YouGotPwndByMyAssJewishDariusKairi REWARD: 15K KC   
    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.

    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

    Vivaldi got a reaction from IIIAmJohnWick in [New Players Guide] Welcome to ApexKO, Knights! -Work in progress-   
    Welcome to ApexKO!

     
    We're a light-farm, PK oriented server that has been online since December 2015! Based on the newest Official KO version, we strive to provide a seamless, quality service to all our players.
    Here's a small guide to get started in ApexKO.
    1. Creating a character:
    After finishing creating your account, you may create a character. Each character will come equipped with the following items:
    A set of starter gear according to your class. Scrolls and a set of 1k HP and MP potions. 5 day Cospre items (Valkyrie armors, Pathos Gloves, Wings) vouchers that can be redeemed at Moradon for free. 5 million noahs.  
    2. Customizing your character:

    You can acquire additional starter items to better suit your class at the [Gear Dispenser] NPC. You may find the following items in here:
    Mage and Priest armors with MP and INT bonuses respectively. Other jewelry choices (Light belt of Life, Platinum Earrings, Elf-Metal Earrings, etc.) And the choice to re-acquire any of these items for free, at any time.  
    3. Stop by Sundries to get PUS pvp scrolls and other goods.
    In our sundries you can find the following items, needed to pk against other players:
    Weapon and Armor enchant scrolls. Lion Stat Scrolls. HP 2000 and AC 350 scrolls. Teleport to Friend scrolls. EXP, WAR and DC flashes (can't be acquired anywhere else). Unbind Item (required to unlock bind-on-equip items like Krowaz Armors). Scrap of Steel and Nest Scraps (required to upgrade old uniques) can also be purchased in sundries. Level 62 scrolls for free (Absolute Power, Scream, Magic Shield, Judgment). HP 1500, AC 300, Swift and Wolf scrolls for free! Now you're ready to head into CZ!
     
    4. In-Game events:
    Additional to the PK / PVP modes that Knight Online is known for, you may also access a multitude of other activities in-game.
    In the events section we have the following ones:
    Border Defense War Chaos Dungeon Forgotten Temple Juraid Mountain Lunar Wars & Invasions Bifrost Ronark Land Wars / Boss event Castle Siege War For more detailed info on these events, click HERE (TBA).
     
    5. Farming for gear.
    Farming is very easy in ApexKO. With some consistency, you can get top-tier items in no time.
    TBA
     
    6. Various ApexKO™ features and convenient information (Click on them for in-depth information where available):
    Event entry: To access BDW and Juraid Mountain you need to be at least 83/1 or have 800 National Points in your character. Anti-DC feature: In events like Border Defense War and Juraid Mountain, accidentally disconnecting won't remove you from the event. Vote Kick feature: In instanced, automatic-party formation events, you can cast a vote-kick on a user that you think deserves it. Anti-Spam feature: If you spam the chat too quickly, you will be timed out for 2 minutes! Please don't spam the chat. Letter feature: You may send items through letter, or regular mail to the enemy nation. This has been disabled in official KO for ages. Rental Feature: For 150 million noahs, you can rent the best weapons in the server for 1 hour. Find this NPC at CZ. Clan Online Rewards: The more members of your clan you have online, the higher the EXP, NP and drop rate bonuses will be! Clan Bank: ApexKO provides a clan bank at Moradon. (Note: Be aware that if your clan is disbanded, clan bank contents will be lost) Upgrade Rates: +9 and +3 are the maximum upgrade levels in ApexKO. You may only reach +8 -> +9 through rebirth upgrades. Event Schedule: You may access the event schedule both in-game and in forums. Reskill Cost: The reskill costs have been dramatically reduced. Nation Transfer: You and your clan can nation transfer for a very small cost. Changing Class: You may class change for a reduced cost. Lunar Wars: This event has been readjusted to properly reward both attackers and defenders. Daily and Weekly CZ quests: ApexKO has implemented quests to give you a reason to always visit CZ every day for your PK fix! Draki's Revenge expansion and items: The revered Draki Pendants have made its way into ApexKO. Player monthly and permanent symbol rankings: Head over to ApexKO main website to see more. Clan rankings: Head over to ApexKO to see more. Player information: Check the items of any ApexKO player. Just change their name in your browser navigation bar. Sealing items: You don't need a premium service to seal an item in blue and make your valued goods safer. Unbinding items: Items that bind on equip such as Krowaz Armors and Draki Pendants, require special unlocking measures. Personal weapons: Doing personal quest rewards you the weapon of your choice already at +8! Character Rebirth: You may rebirth your character up to 5 times, increasing your stats and resetting all quests, including the personal weapon ones.  
    7. GM List and asking for support / reporting bugs and cheaters.
    This is the list of GM's and administrators for ApexKO:

    Vivaldi got a reaction from BulletClub in About new server   
    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.

    Vivaldi got a reaction from HANGOVER in What has admin been smoking !   
    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.

    Vivaldi got a reaction from BulletClub in Character Sealing - a.k.a. Cypher Ring   
    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.

    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.

    Vivaldi got a reaction from Sierra in 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.

    The reasons we don't allow those are precisely this ^
    So, as you can see most of the users think that the suggestions they came up with are always flawless and will be good for the server no matter what but most of the times they fail to analyze the whole picture and probable side effects. That's not a problem though, it's a job for staff members to do that so everyone is encouraged to keep suggestions coming.

    The players are in charge of what goes on in their trades. It's their responsability to be informed, research prices, and then decide what is best to you. With that being said, we, members of the staff, can not intervene in personal trades seeing that it would only do more harm than good and open precedents for future cases. What you can do is create a topic providing complete information of the deal and warn the community about that person.
    I'm sorry but there's nothing we can do to recover your items or punish the other user who took part on this trade.
