Explanation of KoG anywhere? A Wiki?

Post by Pathos » Tue Apr 09, 2019 4:33 pm

Besides the more technical Wikis from Arch or Github, or the link from the patch notes (and the website doesn't explain what KoG is either), I was wondering where I can get some description on what this is.

How did KoG become significant enough to deserve its own tab in the client? Some communication would be nice.

KoG (King of Gores I guess) is a gores server network, similar to what DDNet is for DDRace. Their servers seem popular and run decently, so they have a reputation to lose.

There are some servers around with very similar names to DDNet servers, so we wanted a way for players to easily see in client whether a server is an official DDNet server. After that was done it seemed to make sense to also add KoG. Since that requires us having a list of their servers I decided that we can also show it in a browser tab for them.

How am I "qshar friend"? I don't think I've ever talked to qshar about anything private, or even much at all. I might have been on a KoG server a few years back, but only for some cool tournament they had.

Wasn't there also a clan named KoG (Knights of Glory) back in 5.2? I know this for sure, because there was also this clan WoL (Warriors of Light), which was actually formed by some dudes who, bcs of some internal matters left KoG and later formed WoL if i remember correctly. I dont know if these clans still exist today, but some veterans should remember them, even if its a long time ago..
Maybe someone can explain if there is some connection between this KoG clan and nowadays Gores-Kog
