... for making the elite 1 day skill reset item account bound, and whatever else you may have updated here and there in our benefit. So thanks for the update.
Hey guys, a little about me first.
My name is Labeli or MonkeyFTW103. I'm a streamer/content creator for Kritika Online and EME Partner.
Over the course of 1.5 years I've been playing the game has consistently had issues with the frame rate
It has now gotten so bad for me that i feel a post is needed on this topic. I pretty much sound like a broken record at this point
since this issue is being talked about a lot. But the fact that nothing has really been done to change it is honestly frustrating.
I admit we have gotten several improvements to name a few.
The UI has been fixed up to multiple times
Fractured Memories had the monster density lowered and allowed for better frame rate overall
But even this isn't enough for when the game moves into party play and even solo play at times suffers from frame rate issues.
The Fractured Memories Cooldown Reduction Ability makes your frame rate drop dramatically
Being in a party makes you almost unable to play since the frame rate can go as low as 10 FPS for some people
Fractured Memories still has issues with the frame rate
The Darkfall skill from the Void Monk Second Awakening lowers the frame rate to the point of seeing the game as a slideshow
Streaming the game or Recording lowers the frame rate to the point of being impossible to make videos or streams for the game
This is just some of the issues i can name off the top of my head.
I know you shouldn't compared versions BUT. The Korean version of Kritika Online runs a lot smoother even when streaming it.
So there has to be something totally wrong here with either the servers or the client.
Constantly playing under these conditions have lowered my desire to stream or even make video guides for the game.
Since i end up with a massive headache playing for hours with these issues.
I truly do love this game and want it to be something bigger. But the optimization should really be addressed sooner rather than later at this point.
I would like to hear what the community has to say about this. So please leave a comment about the troubles you have been running into personally.
EME Partner Labeli
Hello and welcome! Last year around this time, there was another Kritika fashion show held. Since that got so much positive feedback from everyone involved, I decided to take another shot at it and produce another fashion show this year! There's an old adage that I took some inspiration from: new year, new you; I figured I could put that to perspective and let everyone express themselves through their costume choices at the start of the new year! In addition to this post, there will be an official announcement on the Kritika homepage so keep an eye out for that! In the sections to come, I'll explain how you can enter, what prizes you can win, and what you can expect from the event.
Participation and Entry
Starting the 11th of January, we will be accepting submissions for costumes. This will run until the 18th, where deliberation will be made following until the announcement of the winners. Here's the official news post: https://kritika.enmasse.com/news/posts/time-for-a-kritika-fashion-show
1 screenshot is 1 submission
Winners for the top 3 best dressed will be announced on the EME news stream on Tuesday the 22nd, and afterwards there will be a fashion show for both NA and EU! These streams will be provided by Labeli from EU and Zeta from NA (check the news post for specific dates). During this fashion show, everyone has an opportunity to show off their costumes and take some group photos. At the same time, these streamers will show off the runner up category winners so make sure to tune in and see if you won!
Prizes and Categories
We have a great mix of prizes for every category of winner. Not only will you receive EMP (Thanks EME!) from your placing in one of these, but since this is a community driven event, we've gathered some in-game rewards to give out as well!
There are 4 categories:
Best Dressed - This is the cream of the crop, the best of the best. Overall, their pictures were just a cut above. Winners from this category will be decided across both NA and EU, so do your best!
Best Dressed Example:
Best Group Photo - Get together with your friends! Only one winner from the group will be selected, so work together and decide who is going to submit!
Best Action Photo - Get creative, strike a pose! This reward will go out to the most action oriented shot, go and capture the essence of what makes Kritika combat so great!
Silliest / Funniest Photo - Everyone needs a break from time to time, show us your wackiest and most original images and you just might walk away with a prize.
These prizes will be awarded

You will be judged upon four different categories that each judge will rate. These four categories are:
Aesthetic - This is your overall look and how pleasing it is to the eye. Maybe the shades of colors, go well with your background choice, or your picture is just easy on the eyes.
Creativity / Originality - This category represents how much effort you put into thinking about what you submit. Some things to consider for this category are background choices, poses, and coordination with your surroundings.
Theme - This is all about a coherent thought. You might have a good costume and a good background choice but does it all go together? Maybe you chose to wear a swimsuit, maybe the beach is the best place for that. Maybe you like a certain color, are there any colorful areas around?
Flair - This category is a bit of a wild card, meaning that it's something that pops or stands out. It could be something as simple as a unique costume piece choice, or the perfect angle. You'll know this when you see it.
Here's an example for you:
Aesthetic: Great! Everything seems to go together and it's pleasing to look at. Maybe a little zoomed out? The feet are floating a little bit but, overall quite solid, probably 8/10.
Creativity / Originality: This isn't a normal spot that's immediately obvious, it took a little effort to get there. Using the default hair isn't commonly seen, and I'd definitely give points for that. 7/10
Theme: 10/10, wearing a swimsuit on a beach, really nice! The background works perfectly with the costume set and the colors go really well together.
Flair: The juxtaposition of being a frost mage on a beach has a nice touch! I'd give this a flair rating of 8, nothing crazy but I like it!
Overall judgement: I like the picture a lot, it has a great theme, and a humorous juxtaposition of being a frost mage in a bathing suit on the beach. The zoom is a little far back but the UI is hidden and it's pleasing to look at. I would give this picture an 8 out of 10.
Things that could have been done differently: Avoiding floating, possibly a different pet or even no pet, zoom in the camera more, try some more unique combinations of clothing, a more dynamic pose
Q: How many pictures can I submit?
A: You can submit up to 5 entries, but you can only receive 1 prize. For example, if you win the best dressed category with an action based photo (3k emp and a dark templar bundle), then you won't be eligible to win the runner up category.
Q: Can I edit my pictures?
A: So long as the picture is an original screenshot from Kritika Online, you may edit the picture. However, this is meant to emphasize your character's fashion, not your editing skills, so keep that in mind if you decide to do so.
Q: How do I hide my User Interface (UI)?
A: By default, F10 will remove your UI.
Q: How do I take a screenshot in game?
A: By default, F9 will take a screenshot. Alternatively, you can use Print Screen.
Q: What about entries from other regions (KR, JP, CN)
A: For fairness, any entry with a variable (costume, background, skill, etc.) that is not available in the NA/EU version will not be considered.
Q: How do I enter my pictures?
A: Upload your images to Imgur, then submit them via the google form located on both this page and the official announcement!
This is a thread regarding "Kritika Masterbook" information and a place to give back constructive feedback for future content.
Hello everyone, I'm Saeki and I am the guildleader of Noir located on the North American server and for the past few months I've been compiling information together that will be useful to newer and returning players that are stuck or confused with certain mechanics presented within the game. Thus, with the help of a handful of people we've created a guidebook accessible to everyone containing various topics and mechanics found within the game and hopefully this information with bridge the gap of confusion within the playerbase.
The Kritika Masterbook is a guidebook with 47 current topics as well as 180+ pages of content surrounding the game mechanics and features of Kritika Online.
These topics go in-depth on certain subjects which may have been rather vague in game to better help newer players understand the game.
The Kritika Masterbook also contains "Player guides" from fellow community members as well as from some of the "Kritika Council Members" that will further help you understand certain aspects or confusions you may have.
While on the webpage the Kritika Masterbook has an easy to use "Table of contents" tab which can get you to the topic you're looking to view without having to flip through pages to get to them.
By utilizing this it becomes a great resource if you're having questions about little things and just need to flip to a certain section quickly.
You can quickly scroll down the list to find which section // topics you're looking for quite easily. Each topic is labeled as Ex. Topic Name Pg.[#]
If you want to simply browse the book there are various ways you can. By simply clicking and dragging the page over you can flip through the book relativity easy.
If you don't feel like clicking and dragging through all of the content you can also uses your arrow keys to navigate through the pages.
The last way is by simply clicking the "Auto-play button" and automatically navigating through the book.
As the game is updated I will be updating the book with more topics and newer information so the book is kept up to date with the newest content available within our version of the game. Suggestions of topics are also welcome so feel free to leave them down below and they may be added into the book eventually. If you have simple questions that you may want answered leave them down below as well, an added "FAQ" section is added towards the end of the book for simpler questions that may not require their own topics to be explained. This section is quite scarce at the moment but will be filled in more as progress on the book is made.
Any feedback or suggestions you may have are kindly welcome down below. Feedback is what will make the guidebook the best it can be so, any constructive feedback is really appreciated.
Down below will be topics that can be found within the "Kritika Masterbook".
I also want to give a big thanks to everyone involved with creating this. It would have been impossible to make this thing without some of you. I'll be listing everyone involved down below who was apart of this project.
A credits page will also be listed in the "Kritika Masterbook" as well to acknowledge everyone whose helped with the progress of this guidebook. Big thanks again!

All 47 current topics are listed here, In the future there will be more added as newer content hits the North American and European Servers as well as additional topics that may be added in due to "Kritika Community" suggestions.
As we mentioned in our Announcement sub-forum, we are now working with volunteer moderators to help us make the forums a fun, inviting, informative place. Those of you that are familiar with our Player Council team will already be familiar with our Kritika specific moderators:
Please join me in welcoming and thanking them for the hard work that they do!
I was surprised to discover just how fun this game mode was. Initially, I thought I would just be partying up for my daily jelly beans, but after participating in it once, it's something I look forward to now. I wish I wasn't limited to just 3 runs per day, I'd enjoy seeing a home for this so I could play with my friends, even without rewards I'd still participate and have a good time. Let me know your experiences with Jelly Run!
Just thought it'd be a good idea if there was cosmetics we could buy to change the way our characters weapons/ special effects.
I'd love to have different Variations of the doomblades katana because the blue katana kinda messes up certain styles. Also having yellow lightning from wolf guardian base electricity aura around her body and her idle hand animations instead of blue would be amazing! more cosmetics, more money!
Other classes that have things they can't change like weapons, special effects, etc should also get cosmetics too!
This is almost a copy paste of a similar message I dropped on the Tera forums, but the intent is the same. I wanted to wish you all a great new year, with health and prosperity. Take some time from gaming to go meet or at least call your family and loved ones, and let them know today that you care for them. Work your plan for a better tomorrow, and give the concepts of love and family a central stage in your life.
Have a Happy New Year!
