If I'm not mistaken Kadjayuni (and Du Patron?) collected a group of players solely with the purpose of fighting Black Shadows and stopping their goal of controlling all 4 core oceans from the start. Luck played a large part in Kappa, especially when so many good conflicts arose out of the all the tight knit alliances fighting for control. THAT'S what made Kappa good - the intense fighting and conflicts from very early on in every core ocean. There were always mini-wars going on and ops taking place. People couldn't just ride the tailcoats of their alliance, they had to learn how to run and run fast.Kappa was amazing because of how chance turned the server against the only real premade
It'd take more than that - Tau was effectively 'stealth launched' but premades still made it in there. And now that there is also the invite system one could easily join in the fight a bit late and be near his premade buddies when the first players start ghosting a week after BP ends.Hmm...I wonder. That may be a good idea. Stealth launch of a new world. Annouce it the day that it opens instead of a week before.
