What makes a server good

What makes a good Knight Online P server?


We've been playing this game for years and can't get away from it. Several servers were played, few of them played through. If you look back at which servers had a lot of hype, which ones were actively played, or even those that were less frequented but lasted a long time, then three words can be used to describe what makes a good server. The team, the concept and the presentation. The harmony between these 3 components makes a good server.

The presentation

The point of presentation should not only be understood as the server presentation. This is only a sub-point, but also the first point. A server can be as good as it wants, unless it's well promoted, it's not going to do you much good. The first impression is very important. A good server presentation, a trailer, Twitch advertising or banners are important means of showing your presence. The quality of the design naturally plays an important role here. Avoiding public designs and choosing innovative designs shows a certain professionalism and seriousness.

The second sub-item is the design of the homepage, if available, forum design and nowadays the most important thing, the structure of the Discord Server. As a player, you see these things very often, but only briefly. Because of this, many elements on a web page are not always beneficial. It is more pleasant to choose a user-friendly design.

As a last point, a good presentation of the server, in game design, makes the little things like banners, shinings or costumes. But the most important aspect here is not to deviate too much from the original. Knight Online players are creatures of habit. We love Knight Online, not Star Wars, so servers that strayed too far from the original have only been semi-successful.

The concept

The concept is probably the most important factor. What makes a good Knight Online P-Server has always changed over the years because the developers have always improved over the years. The game Knight Online is an old game and hasn't been implemented very well. For this reason, some technical changes were necessary. But today everything is so advanced that completely different things count and it doesn't really matter what type of server it is. The best servers have one thing and they are the quality of life changes. The little things, the luxury you get used to, you want to have everywhere else. If a server cannot offer this, it is difficult to play it.

Of course, everything around it is at least as important. A concept has to be convincing, you have to bring variety into the game, but not deviate too much. New features are always welcome items, new dungeons, weapons and armor, or even costumes. What many server admins unfortunately don't understand, the suggestions of the players. These make a very large contribution to the development of a server.

The best concept is the one created with the community.

The Team

Behind every successful server is a professional team. A server can be presented as well as it can be, can have the best concept, but without the right team the server doesn't last long. In order for a server to last long, there must be clear structures, task distribution and the most important thing; Give discipline. Communication within the team, communication with the players makes a good server.

Another important factor is crisis management. There are always situations where quick and important decisions have to be made. Here applies; stay relaxed and act wisely. Minimize the damage and don't act emotionally. This is e.g. a point where many server admins have failed. They always reacted emotionally to haters, botters, etc. instead of keeping a cool head.

In our opinion, these are the 3 points that make a good server. We hope for more years of Knight Online with good servers!
