Hi Campitor, Ozallia and CMAstra.
 
I have a suggestion to bring new events into Classic.
 
Replace ET MVP with those in the game but not in the same.
 
But is available to create another ET on Classic? Keeping what we have, just create another option. If yes, follow the list:
 
Floor 5: Golden Thiefbug
Floor 10: Mistress
Floor 15: Eddga
Floor 20: Tao Gunka
Floor 25: Hatii
Floor 30: Stormy Knight
Floor 35: Dracula
Floor 40: Samurai Specter
Floor 45: Lady Tanee
Floor 50: Evil Snake Lord
Floor 55: RSX-0806
Floor 60: Vesper
Floor 65: Detardeurus
Floor 70: Kiel D-01
Floor 75: Gloom Under Night
Floor 80: Fallen Bishop Hibram
Floor 85: Ktullanux
Floor 90: Valkyrie Randgris
Floor 95: Wounded Morroc
Floor 100: Entweihen Crothen
Unknown Area: Naught Sieger

I disagree with trying to change too much, a big part of Classic is its historical value and well balanced game mechanics. Speaking just for my own opinion.

 

Having said that, there are a few small adjustments that could be nice to see:

No consumables PvP

Maybe more npc's like the empty bottle seller, which helps brand new players get basic zeny.

Maybe some form of really expensive zeny sink for long time players?

Possibly a kind of quest to help mid game players gain godly equipment slightly easier?

Wait, I am confused. I thought the Classic DB on the wiki was up to date? Or does this refer to something else?

we need new fun things to give people incentive to play here again. maybe add an npc to asgrad that warps you directly to the pvp rooms. that way you can click the npc and see if theres anyone in pvp rather than walking all the way through the useless pvp lobby just to find out no one is in there :dunno:

Only spotlight and new hats is boring...

Why is the server not up? What is going on?
It's as if the server was set to be up but never actually checked by a GM or Mod if it was actually up and running.

Are we going to miss castle drops because of this?

In the past when these issues arose, VIP would be given to all players. Are we going to be compensated for this loss in game time?

Well friend, that is a tricky question to digest. On one hand the case could be made that there should be as few changes as possible but on the other hand, in a certain way you are also exactly correct.

 

One of the goals of Classic as I understand it, is to be a place where people can go to play the Pre renewal game with all the good and bad that comes with such a choice. Its true that specific things can be tweaked and adjusted (and our version of Classic has indeed had some modifications done) but we still have to be extra careful to stay away from creating giant differences. Because if the changes go too far, eventually Classic could turn into a Frankenstein monster and we would not be able to recognize it as Classic anymore.

 

Or to rephrase that, Classic should have changes but only ones that can naturally fit for the server. For example Turn in quests are good and logical additions while Janeway is something akin to the Classic version of The Eden group. They can help players just starting out but are not overpowering.

 An example of a radical change might be to re-balance WOE so that a single player with a really good castle could defend against a whole entire guild single handed. :p_idea:  What would it take to make that possible or would it be too extreme of a change?

 

 

I feel what you mean by wanting to see Classic evolve but it sort of cant do that too much because then it might as well be Renewal. (or Restart)

 

But that is part of the trade off. While we could say that Renewal has more new stuff, Classic still retains solid game play mechanics. (which some would say is even better than what Renewal has)

Where Renewal may have more bells and whistles, Classic has a far more manageable economy and lower prices. Thanks in part to a market website like Ragial being around.

 

I would say that New things are not where the Classic server has its strengths, rather its just nice when Classic gets them or if the server has good events and things like that. More like, the idea of being able to log in to Renewal and see how parts of the world changed and being able to log in to Classic and see where certain things started from is a cool idea to me. What players do after that is up to each individual.

The data was posted in 2015 and has never been updated since, there are some changes, event mimics for example, missing from the db.

Great idea, how did we not think about it before? We really have a player who cares about events in the classic!
 
GM's, make a tower for each person with their favorite mvp's, so we can stop crying for not being able to hunt some mvp's.  ;)

Dont forget adding extra floors for memory of thanatos, nidd and challenge dungeon mvp! And increase completion time to 5h to make sure we won't run out of time.

I see wars 1.0 are dead, my idea would be to put wars 1.0 without being able to use items Gods, cards MVPS and Mini Boss, this would greatly encourage those who already play here, and who does not play more, bringing more people to the server.
