Is the redevelopment project going just be re-working the classes, gear skill and quests or will there be anything new added to the game?  I hope that there will be new content added since it have been forever since we have seen anything new.  Requiem has always had such potential and I have always had a fondness for it in spite of all the the challenges the game has faced over the years.  I still feel this game could truly become very successful if the right attention was giving towards developing it.  Since a major project is being done to correct issues with the game where the are being servers taken offline and things reset Gravity needs to use the opportunity to finally release season 3 for Requiem.  Maybe things need to be done in smaller steps and Requiem needs the re-working of classes and fixing is technical issues as a starting point to revamp the game and take it forward.  Even if Season 3 isn't coming in June I would like to suggest that Gravity consider the developing and releasing Season 3 at a later date possibly along the lines of the following:

 

- new quests: new content is needed both to attract old players to return and level up from ground up due to the reset being done for the game as well as needed to attract new players
- new gear
- new playable races: Eonay, Nach, Ohrg and Khun
- additional continents: There are additional continents that we have been known of since the earlier days of Requiem as shown on the world map. New zones show be created and the continents added as playable areas in the game (see the world map attached to this post)
- crafting system: Have drops that in world to be used to upgrade and enhance the ability of Temperions.  The Ioxenic Branch was always part of the game and responsible for the creation of the Temperions, but they have no real purpose in game.  Temperions are cybernetic and these items could be used for experimental research by the Ioxenic Branch to further the goals of their humanoid enhancement project by continued developments the Temperions abilities.

 

Expanded story
--------------
The game should focus on exploring the story that was outlined here at http://www.playrequi...de/introduction.  Perhaps the Nach manage to escape the singularity in which the have been trapped and resurrect the Ohrg, Khun and Eonay to set out to conquer new races of Ethergia

 

Factions:
---------
With the return of the Nach, Eonay, Ohrg and Khun a the 2 factions system is introduced into the game.  Imagine having the old Ethergaia races (Eonay, Nach, Ohrg and Khun) vs the new races (Xenoa, Turan, Bartuk  and Kruxena).  What would be very cool would be 1 server for the old races and another for the new one then the Server vs Server battle would become a fight between where those 2 factions clash.

 

House Keeping:
--------------
- Graphics update.  Will there be any update to look of the game to enhance the visuals.  Being that the game runs on such an old engine I'm sure there will be only a limited amount that will be possible and I am not suggesting a new graphics engine. That being said what ever came of re-painting project that was discussed in this topic https://forums.warpp...ainting-requiem ?  If nothing else repainting could help to visually improve the the game.
- Optimize the game so that it runs more smoothly.  It has always felt the game suffered in performance even on hardware that is sufficient to run the game.  The lag and jerkiness is not something we should be experiencing running a game this old on modern hardware.

Havok is one of the best engines I know. If they release the game on a different engine, then I might not play it. This engine is very complex and takes into account a lot of physics, all movements are the way it should be. If the magician launches the ball, but it flies very cool. I also like that the character does not slide, as in other unfinished games, namely, he gets his foot in the right place. If only to improve the graphics, then you need to do it optionally. That is, low, medium, high, ultra, etc. Otherwise, I largely agree. But if they redo everything, it will take years. You can add one race with each update. I would like the game to be released no later than June, so that everyone is already playing and waiting for updates. In my opinion, the main problem was precisely in the bugs of the game, it upset a lot of people. When any game works great, then you don’t expect bugs and wasted time from it.
Personally, I would like to see more birthday costumes added. And so that the interface has a button for viewing the collections of these costumes. Since the game contains adult content, more of it needs to be added - this is the game's uniqueness and one of the many reasons why I play it. Sorry for the google translation. In general, I was also thinking about some real accessories for the players, but this is probably superfluous at the moment. Well, that is, there are caps, t-shirts with the logo of the game, and I would like a ring, but only a normal one, maybe silver, I'm an adult, why would I wear a plastic trinket. Of course, I also talked about the application for the phone. Also, I always thought that 8 bags is not enough. You can add 2-4 more. I also wish there were more players in my hours. That is, perhaps, it is necessary to attract players somehow. Usually, when the rates are higher, there are more players. Yes, elementary, you can draw pictures in 3-D graphics, and make cards that will fall out of monsters in order to collect these pictures in a collection. Of course, that these were adult pictures, and high-quality ones. And maybe from these pictures there was some kind of bonus to the stats or appearance, or to the drop - that is, something like that. I also always wanted to say that in the Arena window the latest arena, 5 by 5, is not visible - you have to scroll the slider. It is necessary that all arenas are visible. Yes, it is necessary to remove cheaters from the arenas. There are more nuances

I am not suggesting that Gravity change the game engine at all from it existing Havok engine to anything else as it would be unrealistic for them to do so based on cost alone let alone technical challenges.  Everything I suggested is just for adding content, developing the story, introducing new game features and possible touching up of the textures as Gravity suggested they we going to do several years ago while still using the existing Havok game engine.  What I am suggesting is what would essentially be the basis for Requiem season 3 which is long overdue.  That being said right now Gravity does need to focus on their current project of getting Requiem fixed and relaunched and I see suggestions such as mine as something for a later date after the relaunch of the game.  I would like to hear from others at to what they think of my proposed "Season 3" suggestions and/or what they would like to see.

As far as I know, Gravity/Warpportal only care about Ragnarok. Requiem only managed to survive this far due to it's milking potential. Also, original devs and people who came up with both story and designs were from korean office and are long gone.

If I am not mistaken, all what the Nightmare Team can do is edit already existing stuff, so we can expect recolored and/or remodeled gear, monsters and such. Same goes for quests and skills. And that's it.

 

Anyway, if they could deal with the hacking problem, launcher bugs, balance classes and equipment then it will already make worth the time to come back and play good ole Requiem once again.

 

 

Good ideas tho. Except that part of teaming up with Xenoa. The elven scum would obviously backstab krux/turan/bartuk at some point.
