King of the Server (KotS), in this case the 2007 variant, is a mod that takes regular deathmatch and mixes it up with some RPG elements.
"As you join one of the servers you're prompted to begin a character based on your in-game name. As you start fragging away in a FFA DM setting your character will gain exp points, as well as credits and increase in levels. For each level you grow you gain points that allow you to upgrade weapons and playertrees such as: Strength, Dexterity, Wisdom and Rage."
These playertree upgrades will grant you certain abilities (Such as grapple hook, cloak, fly, mine-laying and regen to name a few). All the servers are connected to a global database that stores all characters, so whenever you leave your character will be stored and you'll be able to continue next time you play.
So what are you waiting for? Hop on the servers and check it out, follow your ranking on the site. Additional instructions can be found in the readme in the installer or on the servers
The character database gets reset tonight so everyone starts at level 0 again and the servers will be crowded!
