    Alternatively, I look into adding something that'll make the boxes attackable only by a member of your party

    Aesteris got a reaction from soapman06 in KRUMP NT   
    On a side note, official implements a damage modifier based on the past 14 wars - starting from an unbalance of 3 wars to one side, the opposite side will receive a 10% damage boost for every war lost thereafter, presumably to help (at least) war balance a bit. I'll dig into whether this actually applies outside of wars too (though from memory, it doesn't) and we could try to implement this as well if you guys think this'll help address (at the very least) the unwillingness of the underpowered / outnumbered / outgeared nation to attend

    Most of what you guys suggested seems rather excessive in my opinion. In light of the chest / gem / fragment problem in the previous server I doubt increasing the rewards as some of you suggested is going to do much other than a bunch of AFK characters leeching say a blue chest in Chaos.
     
    I think the rewards need to be revised, yes. 1 Red Chest, a Certificate of Victory, and an EXP scroll for BDW seems rather meh. Chaos seems the least rewarding, but also the hardest one to tackle (bear in mind you can't kick players there as you're not in a party). Forgotten Temple is rather meh too with just 1 Blue chest at the end of all your endeavors, for FT I like the suggestion made by Manhattan the most (e.g. a good reason for everyone to be active, as that's the main problem with it anyway).
     
    It needs more thinking on my end, both about what we can do to make it worth your while, as well as keep an eye on ensuring it won't become AFK event paradise either.
     
    P.S. I'm looking into the 'new' Forgotten Temple on the official servers, it sounds a bit better than what we currently have (and less AFKable)

    Hey everyone,
     
    While the weather is still cold, we thought it'd be a good idea to have an appropriate event with.... snowmen!
     
    Times are as follows:
     
    14:40 CET

     
    22:40 CET

     
    Everyone has a chance, as all damage is equal on these snowmen!
     
    They drop some great EXP, and items - so be sure to attend one of these events if you are in need of either of those!
     
    We'll start off in Moradon, head over to Folk Village, and then both home nations (Karus / El Morad), only to finish it off by going to Ronark Land
     
    See you there, and don't forget to dress warm!

    Aesteris got a reaction from Eveto in Bir Takım Adamlar Clanı Hack.   
    I never said all 3 of you had the same IP, I said the IPs that were used to login to your characters at the time of this happening are IPs that have already logged in to your characters prior to it happening (say literally since you guys started playing them)
     
    The sharing passwords is irrelevant, if you've played any other private servers, you shouldn't be using the same password here. There's too many private servers that do NOT hash your password (and can thus read your actual password).
     
    The person who went on to the aGelmirVARDAMIR account (who emptied your clan bank) didn't trade any items to anyone; He either burned them, disassembled them, or flat out deleted them.
     
    Hope to see you guys again, and in future - please, use the provided methods to secure your accounts to avoid situations like this.

    Last GM event we had a blast, and so did you - we figured it wouldn't be such a bad idea to repeat it this weekend in the void that is left on Saturday! We apologize for the rather late announcement, but hope you guys will try to participate any way 
     
    We'll be having 3 winners on each side (which, if PK is great, we'll increase to 5!), the same person cannot win twice (e.g. kill the GM twice) in the same event timeslot!
     
    During the Kill the GM event we want you to be taking screenshots of the event and upload them to your facebook under the #amazingapexkophotoevent tag, and tag us (@Apex KO) in it and have a chance to win a great PK package - we'll have 10 winners!

    Hey everyone,
     
    Apologies for the absence of these promised blog-like posts, I’ve been rather busy!
    I strive to be able to write these every week to let you all know what’s going on
     
    Time to recap in order of things happening;
    Launch - all things considered, this launch went very well in comparison with last launch. There was no lag, the launch happened on time, there was only 1 small oversight when we prepared for official - skill quests. To you guys this may have seemed like a major oversight, but it was very easy to recover from and I believe we pushed out the fix for this the same weekend!
     
    One of our primary concerns right after launch had happened was to keep an eye out for a bug turks had found (but stated they weren’t going to release until launch had happened). Sure enough, when launch had finally happened they abused it - thankfully all that was to this bug was being able to dual wield 2H weapons (or a 2H weapon + a 1H weapon). This was fixed easily and characters that have been using this have all been banned.
     
    Throughout the past 2 (and a half) weeks you guys found a myriad of small (and some slightly bigger) bugs. We’re working on these in order of ‘game-breaking’ priority - for example the problem with Dagger Defense applying to Jamadar weapons could potentially mess with the market for both the Jamadar weapons as well as the belt and necklace of quickness, and thus it was fixed relatively quickly compared to some other bugs
     
    Looking at the upcoming week(s), we hope to be able to (finally) fix the archer failing sprees (we’ve put in 30+ hours to try and get to the bottom of it, unsuccessful so far), implement the Isiloon in bowl idea (Servants spawn, kill enough of them in time to let Isiloon spawn), fix the current Castle Siege War problems, implement a better matchmaking algorithm for Juraid, and get to the bottom of the priest canceling. Furthermore we’re looking ahead at the Krowaz expansion and we will be opening up discussions on how you would like to see this implemented (I personally believe the zone itself is not the correct way of adding it to the server).
     
    Have a great week!

    1) I've checked the client source, went on USKO, and confirmed it working exactly as it should - ANY lightning skill, as well as any R-attack can cancel a priest's heal. The stun inflicted by a lightning skill does NOT cancel your heal - it merely blocks you from casting anything not currently being casted.
     
    2) While checking on the first issue, I've checked on this as well - we're handling everything exactly the way as USKO does.
     
    3) Working on that - Felankor sounds like a good option seeing USKO does it as well
     
    4) Also being worked on; NPs from kills was added already, digging into the other stuff deeper asap, hoping to have most (if not all) fixed by next CSW.
     
    5) Kurians have seen yet another rework on KRKO, I will take the time to translate all of those changes and post them in a separate thread for you guys to give feedback on (e.g. "Yes, rework it to behave like that", "keep it like this", "do something else entirely")
     
    6) Don't see much point in adding the guaranteed Gold Bar, though 100% chance at one of the uniques in the drop table doesn't sound like a bad change to me.

    I think there may be a need for it to move to Ronark Land, however I don't want it to be merely spawning randomly.
     
    What if.....
     
    We make it an event, taking place in bowl?
    The event would be held at set times in the day like any other scheduled event.
    There's a 5 minute announcement prior to it happening, and when it happens the bowl will be filled with Servants of Isiloon.
    Kill all of the Servants within X amount of seconds (minutes if there's a lot of servants) and the Isiloon will take a peak. If not all servants are killed within the given timeframe, isiloon won't spawn at all - try again next time!
     
    Need feedback on this, I think I'd enjoy it this way much more

    I kinda liked the 'free time' available on Saturday - allowed for PK to pick up nicely. That said, if we end up reducing the total war time (e.g. 30 minutes + 30 minutes, or 1 hour + 30 minutes), perhaps it's not a bad idea to move the first war (on Monday) to Saturday

    Thank you for expressing your views - there is a difference between "blocking someone from passive farming" and having an acceptable rate promoting active game play rather than passive. Your views most likely don't represent the entirety of the server, and although "even USKO doesn't require rainworms" in USKO the golden rod vouchers are worthless for a reason (it's shit compared to mining). I do agree that we need to ensure other ways to farm these items are there available for everyone across multiple slots though - which is something we'll be going over for sure!

    1. There's a good reason these don't drop that often anymore - I can however look into disabling this for specific items.
     
    2. I'd like to introduce you to our daily and weekly quests, the Apexis Chests are great to straight up get the items you're after - make sure to do them as often as possible! Disassembling your items is another viable option, ever wondered what you should do with that Priest Impact? Wonder no more, disassembling is the answer! The rates at which these items drop from fishing is not high enough for this server to become fishing ko v2, unfortunately. We'll be looking into more ways of introducing these materials nevertheless
     
    3. Looking forward to hearing more.
