Do it mindark!!!!! (Minus the RCE maybe?)
Indeed, the nostalgic VU is different for every player. 5 years ago? 10 years ago? 15 years ago?The question is , which VU is "Classic" ?
[anal mode] It was Gamebryo pre-CE2, not TorqueI am totally nostalgic about Torque looks. Never really understood why they switched to CryEngine barbie bs. For the game itself, yes and no, it had loads of issues.
RESULT OF THE TEST ( Scenario Prediction based on my understanding of people and the game, both of which can be grossly incorrect as well)They should have 2 variants of entropia universe
1: the current rce model
2: pre cry engine no rce subscription based
Play which ever suits you...it can be done I'm aure...as they still have the old source code just need to load it up on to separate servers make some amendments and presto.
The only thing that can prevent it from happening is the money greed which ma has alot of...it even worries the devil himself... these people are something else if I must say...and not the desire of fun and stability and a place and name in the gaming world.
It can be done for sure but who will pay for this destined to fail experiment. If you are so sure and are willing to risk, take a proposal to MA with people who are ready to fund this experiment. I am sure MA will work out the details and all would be solved.Play which ever suits you...it can be done I'm aure...as they still have the old source code just need to load it up on to separate servers make some amendments and presto.
I would say the only thing preventing is the greed of the playerbase who wants the possibility to win without understanding the risks involved in a closed loot rce game. There is a reason noone else besides MA have actually run an RCE successfully and that simple reason is that this is probably the least profitable type of game with the maximum headache involved.The only thing that can prevent it from happening is the money greed which ma has alot of...it even worries the devil himself... these people are something else if I must say...and not the desire of fun and stability and a place and name in the gaming world.
Then RCE is truly a curse. When MA knows that people only play there due to RCE, there's no incentive to make the game as good as MMOs nowadays. The "new" mission system is laughable compared to other MMOs'. MA can just throw some events here and there, and the fanbois will eat it upThis
Don't know why people want to remove RCE part of EU lately..
Yes my loot sux too..
if you can find me a game that really looks like EU without the RCE with better gameplay, I'd jump in a heartbeatAbout old PE, why not.
Nostalgia is inescapable as we getting older..
But about the few people that would like EU not to be a RCE anymore.
I don't get your logic guys..
There is on the market probably thousands games that are not RCE, and about 1 that is a RCE.
Why in the world are you playing the only one that is a RCE if you want a subscription based game ?
You don't like the RCE part ?
Don't play the only 1 that is RCE and go try few of the thousands others.. Simple as that.
you serious?if you can find me a game that really looks like EU without the RCE with better gameplay, I'd jump in a heartbeat
There's almost no sci-fi MMO out there with traditional RPG mechanics and avatar customization. Most of them revolves only around space battles where you spend your whole game time inside a spaceship.
I said with better gameplay.you serious?
Indeed, you wont find many games that looks like entropia.
Most of the games indeed dont look so crappy.
Also you like the entropia gameplay?
You mean autofire endless herds of respawning mobs?
EVERY other game out there will outshine entropia in ALL aspects.
Except the RCE part.
The only part that makes entropia special.
Take that away and it will be gone in no time.
First of all, yes, money rules the world, sorry if you just found out.I said with better gameplay.
Damn so I am the only one who likes the complexity of the game (without the RCE)? I guess it's true that most people here are in it for the money. Sad times
You know, if MA offers a choice to scrap all the graphics and fancy stuff from EU and make it a text-based MMO in return for higher loots, I'm pretty much sure most of the players will want it.But if it's true, in my opinion, that most people come to try EU for the RCE part, it is far from being the only aspect for which they stay and keep playing afterwards
I am partially with you on this one. Not all but a good portion would remain. I personally don't think I would though. The ones remaining would be 100x more then the ones who would remain if the RCE is gone :-DYou know, if MA offers a choice to scrap all the graphics and fancy stuff from EU and make it a text-based MMO in return for higher loots, I'm pretty much sure most of the players will want it.
Could not have said it better myselfGr8 Insight
I will concur with you. I don't see what the fascination people have with loading up ancient version of the game. I am a 2010 debutante to the game and there is no way in hell that I would want to go back to that version of the game. From a beginners perspective, the game now is so much better (hearsay based on newbie stories) now that I can't imagine anyone wanting to go back in time to relive the game from that period.I guarantee you lot that loading up an ancient version of the game won't be nostalgic, but more like uuuuugggghhh! It'll be so ugly that you'll be thankful for the progress that has been made technologically.
I remember loading up project entropia for the first time circa 2004 and being shocked at how shit it was. I was playing Half Life 2 around that time iirc. Night and day.
... still didn't stop me playing
No, you dont get it.Damn so I am the only one who likes the complexity of the game (without the RCE)? I guess it's true that most people here are in it for the money. Sad times
I would love Entropia without the RCE party, because the RCE part is not just Entropia Universe.No, you dont get it.
You like entropia. Fair enough.
But you can't say you like entropia without the RCE.
Because without the RCE, there would not be an entropia.
Yes, the complexity is nice.
But it's this complex DUE TO the RCE part.
Otherwise it would just be a point and click game.
Good luck, keeping that up for 15 years.
The RCE part is the glue that keeps everything together.
It's the main ingredient of the game!
The lack of storylines, purpose, etc is compensated by the RCE part.
Entropia = RCE = Unique.
