i crossed a post about whatever KOC is?
talking with confidence about something should be when you know for sure about what you are talking

It is in fact an mmorpg

It is a plethora of us nerds all gathered in one game (fourteen thousand of us) grumping, bragging, threatening, congratulating and what have you, over imaginary statistics, soldiers and combat and status via rank, sabstats, or sheer skill. In my eyes, that is considered role-playing. Unless you are one of them wierdos who runs around telling people in real life that you are going to sab them into the ground and then stomp their guts out. Which, sadly enough, Ive seen some people do in real life, because they were so addicted to the game. That and I run a PBeM and have seen actual rp'ers take a game a bit too far into reality.

In any case, I could break it down word for word for you if you want.
please break it down

and that we get to choose races, which give different abilities in the game, that affect the way we play. also in alliances there are sab teams, unsabbable teams, slaying teams, breaking teams etc. if that isn't role playing i dunno what is
true, i couldn't say better myself you dont know what is a RPG

Check definitions on wikipedia and stop being smartasses

RPG - > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Role-playing_game
MMORPG -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MMORPG
TBS a.k.a. Turn Based Strategy -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turn-based_strategy
MMOTBS -even if this term is not very used, it describes best what KOC is, because this is a multiplayer game that work together to be the best in game.

Talking simple so that all of you can understand:

A RPG is a game where you have 1 character that you develop.
A TBS is a game where you have 1 race, build up an army and atack other people.
Adding MMO - massive multiplayer online - in front of any genre of game, states the obvious -> its a game that is being played by many players online.

KOC is infact an MMOTBS, or you could say MMOTTBS being MMO Turn and Text Based Strategy.
