Game Settings and Rules,last update 2009-12-14
Oct 16, 2009
It’s almost the 17th, meaning that our server is almost officially launching. We’ve have spent countless hours this week just to ensure that we provide the best gaming environment to our players. Initially, we only decided to invite a few players to test our server before launching it, but it turned out that the majority of other Dark Eden players were interested in helping us; thus, since last week, we’ve been randomly distributing beta accounts to our players. With their help, our bug database has increased from a mere amount of 33 bugs to around 59 bugs, almost doubling the number. We’ve also been correcting these bugs in the past week, resulting in a significant decrease of bugs; most of the critical ones are fixed. And for the remaining bugs, we’re currently working on them, this includes the item descriptions and the translations of other things. This might take us another week or two because the tasks are really time consuming.

Our developers have spent hours and hours just to ensure the game meets our players’ expectations. I want to thank them right here for all their hard work; also, I have to thank our translators for translating the scripts into English, it’s definitely not an easy task to translate over 1000 item descriptions. Lastly, I have to thank those who tested our server and reported errors. The game would be completely different without their efforts and contributions.

So let’s get down to business… the server rates are as listed below:

Exp rate: 5x
Rank Exp rate: 4x
Pet Exp rate: 2x
Drop rate of items: 20x
Drop rate of rare items: 15x

*Rates compared to an official server*
*All other settings are based on the Korean server*

Many players have approached me and asked why we’re running a server with a low exp rate. I’d have to question them back, “would you enjoy a game that is only about level grinding?” What’s the point of playing a game if you don’t enjoy it? Our server is nothing like other servers which are running DK2 server files; as a result, we would not make the exp rate high because we do not want our players to focus on the level of his/her character. Instead, we would like them to enjoy the game itself.

And I remember someone saying all the GMs would be corrupted and start making “godly” items. I, DkLegend, would not tolerate any of these activities. If someone is caught abusing their powers, I would immediately take action and permanently ban his id. I believe in fairness; I would not allow cheating to happen on this server.

Before our server officially releases to the public, I would like to go over the rules once more

A, Registration Rules
In order to maintain the stability of the server and the fairness in the game play, we’re going to limit the number of accounts by restricting registration, meaning that we’re going to close the account registration. The overall number of accounts will be limited.

New players may only be invited to register for an account. Existing forum accounts may only register for one game account, and they may invite one other person to play on our server. Thus, people are in charge of two game accounts for each forum account.

When the first character of the person you invited reaches Level 60, you will be granted with 500 market points. But if the person you invited breaks any of the game rules (eg: Speed hacking), In most situations, players would be warned. [COLOR="Red"]But for severe situations (eg. speedhacking), we would take your account off from our database immediately.[/COLOR]For every 70 levels you reach in game, you will be allowed to invite another person. Just by doing some simple calculations, this means that every account may invite up to seven people (one from the beginning + six others from leveling).

For being non-active for a month, your account may be suspended just to allow more players to join our game.You can login again to active your account. Your account will be deleted with never active in half year.

B, Game Rules
Please agree with these rules before playing on our server. We do not want any miscommunications happen between our players and our GMs.

a. [COLOR="red"]Speed hacking would result in both permanent suspension of the account and the suspension of the account who invited him/her.[/COLOR]
b. [COLOR="red"]If a person who finds a bug exploit in the game and uses it for his own good, his/her account would be permanently banned.[/COLOR]
c. Verbal abuse (which includes all racist comments) would result in unable to use chat for a day. (only if someone complains about it)
d. [COLOR="red"]Any suspicious server attacks would result in banning of the IP.[/COLOR]
e. Please do not whisper GMs for items, or will be muted for 3 hours.
f. Please report any suspicious equipment that one has, we would verify if it’s an edited item or not.
g. [COLOR="red"]If we find out a GM helped another player in terms of item distributions//teleportation or any other things that is unfair to other players, we will ban the GM and player who got help.[/COLOR]
h. Macro auto program isn't allowed in DKL,it will cause get ban.

Other non-related things
- We’re currently working on our market page. Please be patient as it might take around three or four days before the market opens. The market exchange rate 10 dollar = 500 market coin.
- Every activity is logged down. So please respect yourselves and others, we do not want to ban anyone on the first week after the server launches.
- Our server backs up files everyday to prevent the loss of experience points and items.
