This is the description of Neocron from an experienced player, who has been playing it for a year and a half. I finally managed to quit the addiction, and have seen the light.
A cyberpunk MMORPG created by ReaKKtor, a German company. It combines character building and training with first-person PvP action.
It is a terrible excuse for a computer game, and is run by a bunch of Nazis who can never keep their promises, and are too lazy to fix simple bugs. The game is reknowned for "Fatal Runtime Errors" that happen approximately every 15 minutes. Somehow this monster of an issue was never fixed in the retail package, and still exists today, while their Neocron 2 BETA hits the world, causing more disappointment.
The GMs (or "game-masters") which supposedly keep order on the servers and help people with problems, are corrupt and biased Germans, who treat their fellow countrymen to special high-powered weaponry and hacks, while banning free speech, and immediately discarding anyone who dares to discuss German 1930s politics.
The game itself runs on an 8-year-old engine, and the developers are known for faking screenshots in Adobe Photoshop, in an attempt to make the game look better than it actually is. Upgrades are constantly promised and constantly delayed, so that the company can ensure the security of more innocent gamers' money before any further development is made. Simply put, ReaKKtor are facist criminals, who lie time and time again at the expense of their subscribers.
The community following in Neocron is split into three main groups:
1. The group of elitist computer nerds that play it 24/7, and establish beastiality fetishes involving the 'Drom' creature in the game. They support KK through thick and thin, believing that every minor update they make to the game is a massive success - and as a result, KK and the GMs corruptly reward them with unique game items. These people have their own vocabulary, consisting of words like 'dromsex', and 'onozzz!'. In real life they attend meetings where they soberly re-enact events from ingame, such as PvP and 'rezzing'.
2. The opposition group - these people complain about ReaKKtor around every corner, and dislike the nazi coalition that dominates every Neocron game server. They frequently come under fire from the above group, because they take role-playing less seriously, and often exist only to annoy others on the game, and create a hostile atmosphere.
3. The naive group. These people play Neocron very often, and make newbieish comments on the forum, to which the elitist group reply with things like "ROFL u nub!! that item isn't rare, it drops from creatures! ROFL!" This is the group most affected by KK's lies - they are gullible enough to believe that upgrades and patches are actually coming, and rich enough to afford to wait years for them to eventually arrive.
Neocron is a completely unbalanced game. All 4 of the extremely boring and limited classes, are unbalanced - and every time the developers release a patch to "nerf" one class, they always nerf it too far and people complain.
Ingame, it is similarly unbalanced. Huge armies arise, mainly consisting of Germans whose only knowledge of English involves words like "nub" and "pwned". These huge Nazi groups dominate servers and, helped by support from the GMs, they completely outnumber and ultimately stay on top of any competitors.
The Neocron forum is severly policed, and has a ban on free speech which smacks of facism. Anyone seen complaining about bugs, or even making "goodbye everyone" posts are banned, and their threads locked. Apparently this is bad publicity for the company - what many fail to realise is that ReaKKtor are just controlling the media, and throwing out inaccurate propaganda - just like Adolf Hitler did in the 1930s.
Neocron was a fantastic idea that went badly wrong, due to the inexperience of the developers, and the naivety and corruption of its community.
The only remaining people that play Neocron and have faith in ReaKKtor are either addicts, who have developed medical issues keeping them obsessed with the game, or elitists who use the small population size to become 'famous' and respected for their "pvp skillz".
I'm just trying to save you all from the fate I had to suffer. Don't get Neocron 2.
