Nexon vs. OdinMS
 
Oh shi-

OdinMS

Yeah, I know it's a couple days old.

kuyaBaka 06-18-2008 03:45 PM

Wow-- really?
I haven't heard about that, but wow.

Wonder what they're gonna do. Maybe it's going down like that one Lineage 2 server.

Amanda 06-18-2008 04:43 PM

MapleNAO's better.

Ascherit 06-18-2008 05:06 PM

It's probably a misunderstanding? Like the blog says, Nexon isn't even located in Germany, so why are they suing OdinMS through a German bank?

Khmer2k1d5 06-18-2008 06:02 PM

Hmm. I wonder why they haven't sued any other MS-clone

Amanda 06-18-2008 06:05 PM

OdinMS is the biggest server, people say that if Nexon sues OdinMS it will scare the other MS servers.

Khmer2k1d5 06-18-2008 06:06 PM

Hm, you have a point there. But why doesn't RO do this instead?

Amanda 06-18-2008 06:21 PM

Gravity tried to shut down RebirthRO, because it's the most populated RO Server, only reason that is is because of the OP'd donate equips, and the server owner hacks other RO servers and make the vote links on those other websites to vote for his server xD
so yea if you're looking for an RO server do NOT go there, you'd be wasting your time since you NEED donates and even then it sucks.

PlayerKiller 06-18-2008 06:23 PM

I knew this was going to happen. This is the exact reason I didn't want to toil in all these private servers, especially the extremely popular ones.

Miyuki 06-18-2008 06:27 PM

ouch...now they're gonna aims on every pservers :s

Khmer2k1d5 06-18-2008 06:29 PM

Lol, let's forget about our pTO then. @_@;

Amanda 06-18-2008 06:31 PM

They won't waste all that money just to shutdown a lot of servers.. look at the RO pservers there's so many of them, and there's still more being made, there's even RO2 Pservers.
and pservers for games no one cares about like Linieage or whatever it's called.

[19:56:10] <Azusa> wat hapen
[19:59:20] <Fuzzy> eeee
[19:59:39] <Fuzzy> old news is old though
[19:59:52] <Azusa> ?????
[20:00:06] <Fuzzy> nexon vs odin @_@
[20:00:13] <Fuzzy> see, old news is old?
---
[20:00:18] <Azusa> oh
[20:00:32] <Fuzzy> I was talking with Anth and Benny
[20:00:44] <Fuzzy> Anth is thinking its either for real and no more odin
[20:00:45] <Fuzzy> or
[20:00:52] <Fuzzy> its a "scam" to shut down private servers
[20:01:00] <Azusa> It was bound to happen sooner or later
[20:01:03] <Fuzzy> like they are threatening to sue but will back out
[20:01:13] <Fuzzy> since a lot of servers are closing in fear
[20:01:29] <Azusa> uh
[20:01:38] <Azusa> The same shit happened with RO a few years ago
[20:01:48] <Azusa> Except it was a specific server that received a C&D letter from the company
[20:01:54] <Azusa> Yet look around today
[20:02:02] <Azusa> how many hundred thousands of servers are there?
[20:02:10] <Azusa> Is development still going? It sure is
[20:02:13] <Fuzzy> Odin is the only one getting sued right now
[20:02:25] <Azusa> Yeah well one thing has to be made clear
[20:02:25] <Fuzzy> its just some people fear they are next
[20:02:32] <Azusa> OdinMS, or the source itself?
[20:02:40] <Azusa> Legally, those should be two seperate entities
[20:02:44] <Azusa> Unless the admins there are morons
[20:03:14] <Azusa> Plus there are private WoW servers
[20:03:28] <Azusa> and Blizzard Entertainment is a far more prestegious (sp?) company
[20:03:31] <Fuzzy> and thats P2P
[20:03:35] <Azusa> Yet the private servers still exist
[20:03:39] <Azusa> What the **** is Nexon gonna do?
[20:03:50] <Fuzzy> being infamous and have all the gMS players quit
[20:03:51] <Fuzzy> or drop it
[20:03:59] <Azusa> Regardless of what happens
[20:04:05] <Azusa> Development will continue somehow
---
[20:04:10] <Azusa> Private servers will continue to exist, somehow
[20:04:32] <Azusa> Besides
---
[20:04:55] <Azusa> Most of the people actually "discussing" this whole Nexon vs. Odin thing aren't familiar with the law
[20:05:00] <Azusa> Specifically German law
[20:05:05] <Azusa> I don't know shit about it either
[20:05:18] <Fuzzy> nvm it was taken down
[20:05:31] <Fuzzy> its odd that its german
[20:05:48] <Fuzzy> unless thats the only place that would handle this stuff
[20:05:54] <Azusa> Until some further explanation is given
[20:05:58] <Azusa> I still don't give two shits about it lol
[20:06:12] <Azusa> Not the first time I've seen something of this nature and it won't be the last

etc.

MapleNAO uses Odin's source; Every PS using Odin's source is running the risk of being sued. If this goes through, which it probably will, since the owners of Odin can't afford to pay half a million+ (USD), all PS running on Odin's source run the risk of being sued. This includes MapleNAO, LocalMS, DagonMS, MapleGeek, and other big ones. Titan's source is still there, I suppose, and other lesser-known ones, but...its up to whether or not people are going to run with the chance of getting sued for a large amount of money. After all, it isn't as if these servers reimburse them. This could just all be a ploy to scare private servers off...and its working.

Also, I have no idea why they're doing it in Germany, but its most likely because the owners are German citizens. That isn't much of a reason, though.

Amanda 06-18-2008 07:43 PM

I've seen this happen on RO servers >.>

Ayumi 06-18-2008 07:45 PM

And what happened in those cases? o_o

OdinMS isn't just the biggest PS...in actuality, its been declining somewhat. More importantly, its the host of the Odin source.

Amanda 06-18-2008 07:49 PM

Nothing bad really happened, there's still a bunch of RO servers and more keep popping up everyday. xD
Which is why I'm not all that worried.

Tardar 06-19-2008 11:59 AM

According to the blog, the people said they don't have to pay. But OdinMS staff is quite confused of what is actually going on.
Maybe eMS is pressing charges against them?

Fuzzy 06-19-2008 10:15 PM

Why would eMS do it? They are sourcing from gMS...

That right there could throw the lawsuit down the drain... since eMS isn't losing the stuff.

Hopefully it will be dropped and PS will continue to thrive, and we will get GPQ soon >:3

The letter sent was sent accidentally or something; Its coming up, though.

Well, I don't think its being blamed on any particular branch so far...I heard it was from Nexon HQ, but I don't know, they aren't saying much. >>

In other news, I keep hearing that private servers are getting lawsuit threats now and shutting down. I'm not sure of which ones, though.
