The Lunar New Year
Posted by: Vini -- 2:30 AM EST
   

Today the Kingdom of the Winds Nexus TK celebrate its Lunar's New Year with arrival of the Fire Rooster year.

Different from the solar calendar, the lunar calendar has 354 days and each of year is represented by a different mythic animal and one of the 5 "Wu Xing" elements (earth, fire, metal, water and wood). Such year is filled with mysticism and important occurrences as previewed by astrologers from Han Empire:

"The Year of the Rooster will be a powerful one, with no middle of the road when it comes to moving forward. This year, impressions count. You’ll want to look your best and be clear on your intentions concerning love and wealth. Stick to practical and well-proven paths to ensure success, rather than risky ventures. In a Rooster Year, all of the Chinese animals can reap great rewards by tapping into Rooster traits: loyalty, commitment, hard work, family values, and top-notch appearances are just some of the characteristics that will be rewarded this year".

Curiosity: The last Fire Rooster year was in 1957.

Article: Associating with cheaters clarification
Posted by: Vini -- 1:56 PM EST
   
There has been some sort of confusion and some questioning on community board in regards to the message published couple days ago by Head GM Wony on community board. People are worried about it creating a state of constant paranoia due to players not know if who they are interacting with in sales and hunts are botters/cheaters and being punished as a side effect of other player's misconduct.

Since there haven't been any official post addressing the concern of people, I offer here a deeper justice explanation of what I -believe- was the intention of the post.

From a legal point of view, you cannot be considered accomplice if you have no knowledge of a crime happening. So if you interact with a person who is cheating/botting but you had no ways to know it, then this is not something you should worry about.

The only people who should get worried are the ones who know or have seen strong evidences that a player is misconducting and violating the terms of agreement, but decides to remain silent. If you know that someone bots/cheats/char share/sells or buys chars or seen anything that makes you strongly believe that a person is doing so, it's your ethical duty to report.
To report a suspect of cheating Nexus, simply submit a ticket to NexusTK support with information details and evidences to support your claim.

Refusing to do so, means you could be charged with obstruction of justice for knowing about a crime and not saying anything, known as "misprision of a felony".

Justice works like this in the real world and no one is living in paranoia about if the person who they are dealing are committing crimes or not, so chill a bit, continue having a pleasant and legit gameplay of your own without worrying much, but report if you know someone is doing bad stuff. And remember, falsifying a report (to attempt to harm someone) is also illegal, wrongfully reporting someone isn't. GMs can know the difference.



Cheaters and botters oh my... Part 2?

Seems MistPrince posted his own interpretation of Wony's previous post about Cheaters and botters,
which was promptly responded to by none other, than Wony himself!

BOARD TITLE: Community
FROM: MistPrince DATE: 1/27
SUBJECT: *sighs* Guide to not getting banned!

Alright, since this obviously seems to be a difficult
and non-common-sense topic. Let me outline the type
of behavior that would get you banned "accidentally".

- Often trading with a cheater/botter/etc. for a
"REALLY GOOD DEAL". This would be suspect, if you
are getting free or heavily discounted diadems,
sevenleaf swords, chaos blades, etc on the reg.
Probably gonna get banned.

- Getting REALLY CHEAP AWESOME leeches for HOURS AND
HOURS upon end, that seem like they are not even
close to humanly possible. You shrug it off and
decide you will continue to reap these rewards, even
though you know something is fishy. Probably gonna get
banned.

- If the thought ever crossed your mind about someone's
suspicious activity, but you decided instead that "meh
not my problem, but I love benefitting from this!"
And you continued to drink the poison.
Probably gonna get banned.

Things likely not to get you banned:

- Occasionally getting a great deal on some random
item (maybe it was duped? who knows) but your trading
habits and these instances are few are far between.
Probably NOT gonna get banned.

- You spent a wisdom star hunting with a variety of
groups, maybe someone was botting, maybe not. Or you
have occasionally hunted (knowingly or unknowingly)
with a botter. Probably NOT gonna get banned.

I've interpreted Wony's post as more of a warning to
those who know they are guilty, but are in denial. I
don't think you need to be super paranoid. But if you
are super paranoid, you are probably guilty.


Wony Responded with the following post:

BOARD TITLE: Community
FROM: GM Wony DATE: 1/27
SUBJECT: RE: MistPrince
I am Wony and I approve this message from MistPrince, especially the last part that says:

" I've interpreted Wony's post as more of a warning to
those who know they are guilty, but are in denial. I
don't think you need to be super paranoid. But if you
are super paranoid, you are probably guilty. "

Approved by Wony. Not paid by Wony



Turns it out it's not quite as difficult as we assumed to tell cheaters and botters from the rest!

P.S. Wony's funny bone is showing again!

Cheaters and botters oh my..
Posted by: LinuxKiddy -- 4:08 PM EST
   
A very vague message comes across the community board today by GM Wony.

He's suspecting there's cheaters and botters back again and will clean up house soon.

Wony expects us to know who has been Cheating/botting so.. I guess don't associate yourself with them.

BOARD TITLE: Community

SUBJECT: Cheaters and botters

Please do not trade with, hunt with, assist, get help from the cheaters and botters. Do not mix your footprints and fingerprints with theirs. I may not know the difference.

FROM: NexusTK DATE: 1/19
SUBJECT: Server& client patch- Jan. 19th, 2017
- Nation servers have been merged into one server. Event and game server merged, as well.

- Items on the ground will disappear after a certain period of time. Mob dropped items last 2 hours, player dropped 48 hours. The duration will be shortened later on. This applies to just the items on the ground, not in your inventory or bank, of course.

- F1 key default is NexusTK Guide display. If you prefer the old way, there is a toggle on OPTION tab -> Next page -> F1/Shift+F1 swap

Destiny and SanSin change their Leadership
Posted by: LinuxKiddy -- 4:56 PM EST
   


Destiny Clan, Koguryo:
Today Rebelmagic has decided to step down as the primogen of destiny and hand the torch over to Swift Kalique.

With kalique obtaining Primogen, She had some inspiring words to say.

"It has been an honor and a privilege to have worked under Primogeness RebelMagic's guidance and leadership.
She has truly been the foundation of Destiny. I have some big shoes to fill, and I hope to make the Destiny Clan proud
", said Kalique.

SanSin Clan, Buya:
Who also stepped down today was Primogen Reanalla who passed the leadership of SanSin clan of to Chikage.


We hope Primogen Chikage and Primogen Kalique will perform well in their new positions and bright new light to their clans. Good luck!

Server reset again! new options & minor fixes
Posted by: LinuxKiddy -- 9:47 PM EST
   
We had another reset/patch to have new options added.

They also said they fixed minor bugs with no details on what.

Now only if they can add a Non-drop option to prevent
the community from dropping items accidentally... that would
help a lot of headaches.

Server reset! TANGUN GONE TUTORIAL Back?!
Posted by: LinuxKiddy -- 10:28 PM EST
   
A server reset has happened today in order to MAKE THINGS BACK TO HOW THEY USED TO BE!!
New players Now end up in inn's But get a popup asking if they wish to do a tutorial.

INSTEAD OF TANGUN!!! They go back to the old normal tutorial we all know an love..
Thank you gods/Team Orange/Team Programmers for listening!

After you complete the tutorial you will end up in the kingdom of your choice and up in Ironheart/jadespear making these npcs useful again!

In other news you'll now wake up in inns instead of clan halls unless you're in a subpath, If you're in a PC subpath you'll wake up there.

P.S: Tangun is not gone! you just need to tell the inn npc to go to tangun now if you wish to.

BOARD TITLE: Dream Weaver
FROM: NexusTK DATE: 1/16
SUBJECT: Server& client patch- Jan. 16th, 2017
- Winter Wonderland ends.
- New players are dropped at the inn, not in Tangun
- Default login locations will gradually be switched to inn. (Saying 'Clan' will take you to your clan hall.)
- F1 & Shift + F1 swapped.

There can be some confusion, and glitches regarding the new default login location. We apologize. This is an attempt to have the new players and old players mingle with each other, as suggested by many players, repeatedly. This has been a lot more tedious task than we anticipated, due to all the changes accumulated over the years. We will improve and clean up as we move along. Your understanding and patience is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
