This game started out really fun for me. Great community and easy to learn steps. The quests and classes may appear kinda unbalanced to most, but I lived past with that.
However right now, as of November 21st' 2007, Metin2 is heavily loaded with hackers. Most players create alternate accounts so that they can live off with hacks. It is really easy to create multiple accounts, since you do not need a valid email account for the registration. I've tried registering with firstname.lastname@example.org and it worked.
As for the GMs, they are hardly online, and almost never after their office hours. Thats when the hacking activity starts.
Players like me, try to aid the GMs by reporting them via email. Unfortunately, its tremendously tedious to even report one. They require screen shots or vids, and the banning doesn't necessary happens even after you supply them with it.
As for the forum, the moderators work closely with the GMs. They remove any topics that may reflect bad for their game - that includes hacking topics, screen shots and discussion about their inefficiency.
After having my account suspended by one of the GM for challenging her judgment in banning hackers, I have created a blog @ http://hackersmetins.blogspot.com to capture all the deleted posts, and screens of hackers in this game.
I encourage all to look at the blog, try out the game and read the forum, before making any purchase in their item mall.
Right now, I have $89.90 worth of item mall credits, but I can't use the, since I got suspended. My total lost for this game is US$400.
