I will say this loud and clear!
I love this server but it needs some love!
This post may seem a little harsh but it comes from a place of love for this server
I will try to make this post as short and to the point as I can get.
I absolutely love this server and the community that it has. As I have started my journey from noob to max I have noticed a lot of grimmy things about this server, and I'm not talking about people or staff. I literally mean this server feels like it gets no love from the development team. This server has a really great foundation but as I Have continued to play I keep noticing these little things that really make me mad.
Here are some of the things that I have found that just irritate me and I will simply list them and go into more detail afterward.
Prestige shop, and Prestige
Overabundance of shops
redundancy of shops
The maxed cape is fairly pointless
There are honestly way too little "rares" / good items
very little progression once maxed
pking is non-existent
Ok so let me explain, Prestiging feels like its a complete waste of time and energy, when you prestige all you get is 2 points and the shop is a joke with nothing really worth it enough to reset a 99, I would rather prestige be only for those who maxed and remove the lamps to really make it a challenge. Once you prestige you should have a noticeable +1 - +15 on your account as well as a different reward for each time you prestige. like a mystery box, or a boost to drop rates, and lower XP gain.
Skilling has virtually no point but to the max, you cant make money with it. There is no point in any of the gathering, or crafting (making) skills since you can buy everything in a shop, but I have already made a forum post on this. Side note: Nobody ever uses summoning
There are way too many shops making almost everything except PvM drops worth nothing. I can't tell you how many times I've looked at one shop and seen the same item in another shop, It really hurts the value of a said item, when there at 2 different price points or one of the "points" is easy to obtain than other, but yet it's the same item. Like just look and see how many different shops have a charming imp, or Bonecrusher in it (which are amazing items outside of a private server)
The maxed cape is pretty pointless, I was able to obtain the Death cape which gave better stats before I was even able to gain the max cape, Like what's the actual purpose or reward for maxing if a max cape is so weak?? like seriously? No money, no Boxes, no reward, just a crappy underpowered max cape.
After getting some drops and looking at the market, There is maybe a handful of rares that are actually valuable or even traded. I think in total maybe like 20? there are very few custom items on this server as well as very little custom armors. These could be expanded upon and added to the drop tables. Make more elite items that people will actually want to use.
Once you have maxed, what are you going to do? Maybe a few raids, maybe max our gear, kill some more mobs. There is very little for a maxed player to do that someone with 99 in combat can't do. Like Maxed players should be rewarded for obtaining max, making it something people really want to go for, instead of maxing just to be maxed.
I can't speak much for Pk'ing as I am not a PvP person, but I know other players have complained about the lack of PVP on this server.
Voting is the fastest way to get rich. In one vote you can sell the 16 votes for 80m each = 1.2b for voting for one day. like really? aswell as the extra reward I recently got was literally 1m, That's a joke. I haven't seen a player "get lucky" off a vote ever.
To put it all in summary. This server is really amazing and has a great foundation, but there really needs to be some development love to this server. Donations are really high priced on this server and the fact of how many people I see donating and with how little updates I see, I wonder where all those donations are going. People donate to keep a server up and keep it updated, and it feels like it is neglected. I love this server and I don't mean to bash it, but there really does need to be some change and more frequent updates.
Like the title says: this server is a lambo with a 99 chevy engine
Somebody take it to a god damn mechanic and fix it up!
I really love this server and don't mean to make anyone mad or attack anyone but as I have played ive developed a love-hate relationship with this server and just need to express my passionate loving anger and hopefully start a change.
