The founding of the first private servers, P-Servers for short, came about through the publication of server files, from which the founding fathers of the Metin2 P-Server scene built the foundations of what is today most popular: The game worlds outside the official platforms marketed by the traditional companies.
It is unclear whether it was greed for profit or pure joy in experimentation that prompted the first server administrators to make their projects, which initially ran via the VPN client "LogMeIn Hamachi" and "Windows Virtual PC", publicly accessible and thus the laying the foundation for what is now dormant on expensive high-performance computers.
But first, Metin2 Pservers were a source of opportunity for teenagers and young adults, who, through this first exposure to what lies behind the Metin2 universe, often paved their way towards computer science studies.Because the private servers were and... (read more)
are still a platform to get to know the programming languages Lua, Python and Co. and to gain experience in dealing with databases and web servers.
The website "Elitepvpers" plays a not inconsiderable role in this context. Pserver has become a one-stop shop for all interested gamers and amateur developers. There they advertised their own project, found a suitable team among the many Metin2 Pserver supporters and, as part of the constantly growing community, contributed to the creation of an ever-growing network of private servers that not least trying to fight each other with DDoS attacks.
The principle of a Metin2 Pserver is simple and plain: the same content that the official Metin2 Server offers is initially offered free of charge and ideally supplemented with functions that improve the flow of the game . The speed that the player needs to master the achievements and challenges that Metin2 offers him is also different. The story is quickly completed and as the level of experience increases, the details become more and more important. This is where the concept of the Metin2 Pserver for self-preservation comes into play. Willing supporters have the opportunity to purchase coins for a "donation" in the item shop and thereby enable the continued existence of the Metin2 Pserver.
Unfortunately, this mechanism has been abused enough times in the past to take money out of players' pockets under some pretense - but that's rarely the case. However, it is also true that the scene, in which the developers gradually networked and everyone knew each other, always split into a part that was commercially oriented and a part that was only open-source oriented, and conflicts were often not avoided as a result could be.
Today Metin2 Pservers still exist and although they have long since passed the zenith of attention, they are an integral part of today's network landscape. On the contrary: they are currently enjoying increasing popularity again! What the future will bring - you can be curious!The KoriFiles
Very popular at the moment: the so-called Korifiles. These are pre-compiled Metin2 PServer Files, which can be downloaded for free and customized as desired.
Probably the most used files these days. As with the Kori files, these ready-made Metin2 private server services are based on the vanilla source and are very easy to set up via the config files.
Metin2 Pserver categorization
All servers are divided into the categories "Metin2 Root" and "Metin2 Hamachi/Homeroot/DynDNS" to make it easier for the player to find the right server. Here the largest servers are listed based on the votes that voted for a Metin2 private server, descending from the highest voting result. This guarantees the participation of the players at all times.
If it weren't for bribing the players with a certain amount of item shop credit, which is supposed to create an apparent win-win situation, but negatively affects the balance in the game itself in the long run. If there are too many rare items in circulation, they will lose their value and newcomers will have a harder time earning their place in the duel unless they have money to spend.
Also the quality of a Metin2 Pserver; the effort and work behind every single project for which some have already sacrificed two years is not expressed by the algorithm of the top list: no matter how good a server may be - if too few players play on it, it is missing Reach and the downfall of the Metin2 Pserver is inevitable thanks to the comparatively low toplist placement.
In order to prevent a server from being placed higher and higher in the Metin2 Pserver Toplist, the number of votes in the Metin2 Toplist is regularly deleted. This ensures fair competition among the servers at short, monthly intervals.
In fact, it has happened several times that illegal software, such as bots or similar, has tried to vote a certain server among the highest places in the top list and thus win numerous new players, which is vital for every server.
Each PServer has the opportunity to draw attention to itself with its own slogan and banner. If the banners were still sterile at the beginning, a trend towards animated advertising images can be seen with the increasing popularity of the Metin2 Pserver, which was also only made possible by the rapid increase in technical knowledge.
One indicator for slipping into the top ranks of the Metin2 Pserver Toplist is above all the number of players: the more players a server has, the greater the growth in players will be in the coming time. A good voting concept is therefore recommended for every server administrator!
We offer you a Metin2 private server top list divided into Metin2 old school, middle school and new school.
As the free MMORPG Metin2 from publisher Ymir Entertainment Co. Ltd.
opened its doors to players in Germany in 2006, no one was aware of the onslaught of advocates of the Free2Play game principle that the constantly growing number of servers would be able to withstand.
The aim of the game is to free the oriental game world from the menace of the evil Metin Stones.
A scene for private servers (P-Server for short) was established very early on, in which Metin2 was played by gamers who are enthusiastic about programming under the abbreviation "Mt2" or "M2" became one of the best-known and most popular representatives of role-playing games on the Internet, Metin2 is now not only played massively in Europe and Asia, but also in Brazil and North America.
Where the appeal lies in facing a long and arduous battle against the forces of evil, defeating the Metin stones and accepting every challenge - in short, being an adventurer is already in the very nature of online role-playing: who Wouldn't you commit to fighting as a representative of one of four races against dragons, slaying wild beasts and forming clans with other games from around the world to conquer the world of Metin2 together?
Last but not least, collecting items and rare objects with constantly newly distributed properties, so-called bonuses, in competition with eight million like-minded people exerts an enormous attraction on every ambitious, young and creative mind - because the trade and the possibility of objects are also arbitrary to barter or sell for a self-selected price in the in-game "Yang" currency market are irresistible to any able-bodied merchant.
Whether on the floors of the Demon Tower, in the endless expanses of the Fire or
Iceland, the treacherous corners of the Ghost Forest, the green slopes of the
Orc Valley or the endless catacombs in the heart of the three realms: it's worth checking out
to meet the challenge that Metin2 offers to the bright gamer heart!
New dangers are always waiting to be discovered - there are rumors about a new one
Race that has joined the battle against the Metin Stones since late 2014.
