Almost half of your arguments are just disguised back-in-my-day rants, nothing more.
Renewal is far from perfect but why would you want to have a game with zero updates with mechanics conceived decades ago? RO was never good as you make it out to be. Hence, nostalgia.
More than half of your counter-points are non-arguments that are either flat out wrong or just ignorant of the game. I fail to see how criticizing legitimate issues with renewal is really just a "back-in-my-day rant", that's just a silly and dull-minded way of dismissing criticism because you can't argue against it. Please explain to me how nostalgia is blinding me to the superiority of not having a job exp display on the main UI, or how it's blinding me to the superiority of an economy where a Bone Helm costs 40k and a single piece of Elunium costs 50k.
Also, your lack of reading comprehension is worrying. I never said anything about wanting to play a game with "zero updates". There is a definitely a way they could have improved classic -- but that is not renewal. Look, I get it, every discussion about old vs. new needs that one assumptory contrarian to tell you that you're being blinded by nostalgia, but you're doing a job of explaining why. Saying things like "DUDE ITEM DROPS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN BAD LOL", again, that's a meaningless non-argument that automatically tells me you have very little experience with the game, were probably in diapers when it released, and thus shouldn't be commenting on things you don't understand. The fact you'd even go as far as to say "RO was never as good as you make it out to be" says it all.
Serious question, do you also use windows xp and pentium 4 because windows 10 is bad and newer hardware made everything worse?
Lmao, is this the best you can do? A strawman that assumes if I like something old I must not like anything new? I use Windows 10, just like I play renewal, and I'm extremely critical of both because they are both deeply flawed -- but hey, feel free to tell me about how great the windows 10 spyware, adware and legacy compatibility is. It's unfortunate that you seem to lack the ability to look at things from an objective perspective and can only have binary opinions that are skewed in favor of "new = good" like some kind of grunting cave man searching for a new favorite rock, but I'm afraid it doesn't do much for your argument and I can't respect the opinion of anyone so clearly new to the game.
