    I think it was already announced that ibexis/crisis pots, monster staff and dragon boxes were not going to be added due to their "pay2win" nature.

    FROM PLAYERS FOR PLAYERS
     
    Hello I am GetRekt and i wanted to help this server improve as i have put a lot of effort to play here and gather a couple of friends on this server.
    What i wanted to say is...
     
    Every of server staff are trying their best to listen to players moaning and cries everyday but we cant notice any improvements in server.
     
    The easiest way to improve server is doing the smallest things to make your players happy.
    For example people were really looking forward for Ardream because that would make us use chitins and lower grade garment.
     
    Everyone are going only for shards/raptors/hellbreakers/eagles eyes/shells and blablabla that's what we can only see on merchants
    *sometimes apex vouchers*
     
    Market is already being destroyed by people holding 200 gbs and more.
     
    By cutting fishing/mining u did well but u did not think about it well as a team.
    I think that you need to use more surveys and general type of topics with server players.
     
    Newcomer event is a pear in the ocean but still it doesn't help people find exp/farm parties as they need...that's not how you're gonna improve your online number.
     
    Ardream has nothing in it, totally...there's no players, there's no bosses, there's nothing we can do in there...It was just opened like that to make more space for people that are sitting in moradon setting merch, doing fishing, sometimes pk and events.
     
    First of all you should aim exping and farming parties to let them gain more then people that are sitting in bowl
    Did you know that selling 3 tails of shaulas u can get something over 15gbs ? easy obtainable when you're geared - BUT NOT WHEN YOU ARE NOT GEARED - and that will make newcomers thinks that they has no chances compared to people who already got +7/+8 items.
     
    Making colony zone makes server dying step by step - Id recommend any of the administrators visit eslant or lufferson castle exping spots.
     
    Remember that there are people who prefer PK and do not prefer it while exping. Both styles should be similar but exping while being able to die should be more rewarding.
     
    GMs are not trying to communicate with players, having fun with them in-game as they should be more sociable then any of player, making small events which gives almost nothing but fun playing with others.
     
    There's nothing you can do as solo player and its really hard to do something as duo party but fishing. People are fishing only because there's no spots for them to be attracted by.
     
    Skill items are really hard to get, its making people offer about 600milions to get lupus pendant which makes people avoid PVP/PK even more.
     
    My suggestion is to focus more on helping players get to the top and making them more fun-zones like exping farming, so they can join PK, higher grade events and so they can join our insanely great community in late-game plays raiding such a great bosses as Felankor as a server!
     
    My idea is:
     
    create custom collectables which can be dropped from different farm zones that would be working like chests/gems/frags (low/mid/high grade), that would push fishing/mining away to the worst farming style which can be used as a side farming when ure tired after work or bored after hours of killing monsters or pk.
     
    100 blue crystals - 1 exchange for high grade armors with low probabilty of unique or other useful item
    10 red crystals - 1 exchange for high grade weapons with medium probabilty of aids in the bag which kills your character mwahaha. (just a joke)
     
    make more events like "WE ARE ADDING BOSSES IN ARDREAM PREPARE YOURSELVES in 5-10 days"
    Random worm is travelling through moradon with ultra drop (any probability to drop bus , chests gems uniques) which would be really hard to kill for example with bare fists 1 dmg per hit.
    Thats just a random ideas of events that could be easily done to improve your server
     
    Make Eslant and Lufferson castle/Elmorad castle monsters drop more useful items and for example you can add a global chance for dropping items that drops from fishing so people would prefer to kill monsters instead of sitting in a place and struggling their nuts - making 1000 accs just to fish.
     
    Adding APEXKO Custom npcs in moradon just for event (bandicoot named Aesteris is raping npcs in moradon - PEOPLE PLEASE HELP , STAPH THAT MONSTER)
     
    Make Events that even lvl 1 character will be able to join!
     
    For now its everything from me cause I am going for a party soon but i would be gladly to hear opinions from others and for sure seeing some of the server staff joining the discussion (CAUSE U WERE PLAYERS AS WELL)
     
     
     
    BEST REGARDS, GETREKT.

    Aesteris got a reaction from Cornflakes in HaHaCantPwnMe luring to emc fishing spot   
    This argument completely made it impossible for me to go do anything about it, your clannies abusing a bug is "okay" because it's the server's fault, but it's not okay for someone else to be using (what is arguably a logic bug)? Applying a double standard there aren't we?
     
    Eitherway, what I see is someone who got a few Burning Skeletons behind him while getting to the fishing spot, something which guards should've taken care of (but didn't as I forgot to spawn them). If it were a Troll or anything that wasn't directly next to the fishing spot, now then we'd be talking.

    To add onto that, it'll only be d3d9.dll which has gone missing (deleted by your anti-virus, probably) from the Apex KO folder - restoring it (and adding an exception for it) will fix the problem

    Hello everyone,
     
    Our Open Alpha schedule is as follows :
     
    Game testing related :

    12/5 5:00PM CEST - Border Defense War (expected to last around 30 minutes)
    12/5 5:30PM CEST - Chaos Dungeon (expected to last around 20 minutes)
    12/5 6:00PM CEST - Juraid Mountain (expected to last around 50 minutes)
     
    12/6 5:00PM CEST - Border Defense War (expected to last around 30 minutes)
    12/6 5:30PM CEST - Chaos Dungeon (expected to last around 20 minutes)
    12/6 6:00PM CEST - Lunar War (expected to last around 2 hours)
    12/6 8:00PM CEST - Forgotten Temple (expected to last around an hour)
     
    12/7 5:00PM CEST - Border Defense War (expected to last around 30 minutes)

    We will do a head count on the amount of people able to attend the day before to ensure there will be enough players to have atleast 1 full instance.
     
    If these are deemed bug free we can start to form a regular schedule at which these events will run.
     
    Thank you!

    Hi everyone,
     
    We're hard at work fixing the last few remaining bugs and getting the database side of things ready.
    One of the things that's been particularly annoying is not knowing the name of the "supplies" that should spawn in Nereids Island (boat war map).
     
    If anyone has any information about what these supplies are called, please reply to this thread!
     
    For those of you that need a refresh on what they're supposed to do, killing them while losing the war rewards your nation with 50% of the point difference between El Morad and Karus.
     
     
    Thank you guys!

    Aesteris reacted to twostars in Please, no more issue lists!   
    I know a few of you have created threads with the intention of just adding bugs to it as you come across them; please don't do this. They become very unmanageable quickly.
    Just create a new topic per issue, and we can deal with them accordingly.
    Existing issue lists are fine; you don't need to change them, but please don't add to them. It's getting to the point where they're very difficult to read through (for example, there was one issue list with 101 items in it. Ahh!).
    Just create a new topic for them and let the forum handle all the work of making issues easy to find. It makes all of our lives much easier.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for your interest in Apex KO, we'll be inviting more alpha testers soon! The server is currently in test mode and will be for a while, we'd like to ensure everything is working as expected before launching (e.g. fix bugs, exp rates, drop rates, etc.)
