This server is a Lamborghini with a 99 Chevy prizm engine

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
  • Skilling
  • 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 
  • voting

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.

I actually feel it. Some more exclusiveness for those that progress in the game.

Loot drops can be a big hit and miss.

Skills that really serve no purpose.
few bug fixes here and there are nice, and there is quite a bit of content, but those that strive to keep up with the economy can only get so far unless someone hands out items or cash. The fact you need higher tier gear to even get a good start doesn't make the player very independent.

Skilling should be more rewarding with each prestige, otherwise the Prestige shop is just for show.

totally agree with the skilling being more rewarding with each prestige! great idea! 

Also very true about players not being independent. I'm only at where I am because of handouts.

Few things:

Max cape is better than death cape, has slightly better stats and built in accumulator. (Don't get me started on comp cape though)

Max zone is a decent money maker for new players with derwen's and such, you can get to it through statue of arthur

Prestiging gives the most points when your reach 2b xp for the skill, I think it gives 8 points.

 

Aside from that I agree with you 100%

I personally believe we lose players that get high tier weapons / gear because of lack of content.  It gets way too repetitive.

Server has people pushing goodiebags everyday yet can only get bugfixes / updates out once a month. Being someone who's donated a couple hundred dollars this bothers me.

The worst part is being an active player I notice all the little bugs that bother me.  And having decent java skills there's some things that are such easy fixes, the dev team just seems understaffed.  I even offer to join the dev team because I really do enjoy the community around this server and want to see it grow, but the higher ups are too concerned with having a player be on the dev team (which I understand to an extent) but who's going to have more knowledge / passion about bugs than an active player?

 

Management definitely needs to change something before it bleeds its player base dry

Glad for your insite! and for fixing my mistake with max cape! You have sunk more money and time than most in this server so it means a lot for you to comment on this.

I wouldn't say I've put more money as I know a few others that have dropped a good bit of money into the server, but definitely a lot of time!

Great post, I've been thinking about this a lot lately I'll pass it on to a few of the other high donators who agree.  Can't figure out how to like your post once someone else has already liked it but it gets a big +1 from me

just to verify a few things max cape actually does have ever so slightly worse stats than death cape HOWEVER the max zone is very nice (like cfghc said) and death cape is very expensive and really not worth having if you have max cape in my opinion, as the money from the death cape could be used somewhere else for a more significant upgrade.

As for prestiging, the amount of points you get totally depends and varies on which skill you prestige. Harder to train skills give more points, combat skills give very little as they are so quick to train and as far as I know it's best to prestige at 99 not 2b.

 

Believe me, there's a lot I wish was fixed too. Thanks for the suggestions

The last thing I am going to add is everyone sees money going into this server and never see any of it go to the game. Greed is the downfall of every single private server.

Don't mean this in any wrong way...,

However I think its time to rework the old bosses. They need updated items especially such as "Giant mole, slash bash, Bork, kraken, bandos avatar, etc. Lets make pvming fun for everyone! And actually worth it. It seems most people can't cross the bridge from a non-donator to a donator. I understand gambling is one of the main ways people can move up. However also make it entering to those whom are big on pvming. Maybe adding the potential of a "rare drop" of $10 scrolls added to each of those bosses. This gives the incentive for those individuals to move up the chain also, and if its not $10 scrolls maybe use something else... Make it worth killing those old bosses.
