Host Metin2 Servers in a legal way


Arvydas

Question

Hello,

I would like to get information on how to run Metin2 servers legally.
There are and will be plenty of Metin2 servers, I don't think they are all illegal.
We want to do this in a corporate environment with an orderly legal relationship.

Best regards, Arvydas

Your question doesn't even accurate.
As you told me yesterday, you want to sell turnkey Metin2 servers in your hosting.
I'm 100% sure there is no way Webzen allow you to do that in any form in any country, because Webzen do that, you have to buy Webzen itself for doing such activity.

But if you want a licensed, legal server to distribute Metin2 in a country where there are no current distributor, then that is totally possible.
Price? Unique price offer most likely what is top secret, we have no information what amount did Z8 Games or TEC Interactive or Ongame or catv.net or even Gameforge paid/paying right now. I hope you are not offended but you most likely doesn't even have the money to hire a great lawyer who can do negotiations in your company's name with Webzen.

Spoiler

Again, as I said yesterday in my topic, some hungarian hostings used to offer a paid service for custom gameserver configurations for many game, including Metin2. In that way you bill a vps and a 'custom gameserver configuration' service to your costumer, so in paper you are ok. Just make sure to advertise that in a right way, not saying you are selling Metin2 servers, but your devs can help customer with Metin2 server too among other games. Still gray zone, but you have no better choice to do what you want.

Yep Webzen are more open than Ymir was, that's why I said it is totally possible to have a legal server.
But let’s have no doubt about how relentless this is likely to costs for an avarage new company or business owner.
Probably only existing larger game publishers can afford it, and by the time it pays off, it will take a great time.

However he wants a completly different thing, he wants to be some kind of "reseller" legally and not a game publisher, check his comment.

Hello guys,

Thank you for the information.
Yes we want to host Metin2 servers in our hosting, so our prospective customers can buy a game server preinstalled with Metin2, and I have to do it in a legal way.

Then we will contact with Webzen, maybe we can reach an agreement if we give them a share after each sale, we’ll see.
