Recently, the developer of Dragon Ball Online has got into trouble with the game's former designer, just because the developer has applied certain settings to the game without the designer's consent.

Ku Jeong-Hun, formerly working on the development of Dragon Ball Online in NTL, once wrote a blog and disclosed what happened when the development of Dragon Ball Online started, as well as why he left the company. He also expressed that some settings featured in the current Dragon Ball Online were just applied by NTL without his consent.

According to the words in Ku Jeong-Hun's blog, the company even planned to dismiss him in a disgraceful manner. In this respect, Ku Jeong-Hun left the company, stopping being taken advantage of again. At that time, the company also signed an agreement with him, guaranteeing not to use all his designed game content. However, certain designed content was still found to be introduced in the unveiled Dragon Ball Online.

To respond to the designer, the developer expressed that they would bring in a lawsuit. But the designer said that he had plenty of evidence to support himself. And the developer still insisted that the designer's just talking nonsense. Ku Jeong-Hun has retorted again recently, bringing the war of words to a new height. Maybe, the disputes could only be resolved in the court.

From the designer who's confident enough to say that he had evidence to prove himself and the developer who hasn't taken any action till now, we can say that's just one of the old tricks that most game companies use to take advantage of game designers at first and make money cheatingly later. However, players don't care about how the quarrel goes but how Dragon Ball Online will become finally.
