I have been dreaming about Vanilla AO…
No other MMO has held my heart like AO has.
I seem to compare every game I play with AO and they all end up getting boring and/or disappointing.
Anyways, I was so excited when I checked into anarchy online to see that a new server had been made… I was thinking to myself “Notum wars server???”
I lost interest with all the expansions eventually because it just made everyone into cookie cutter builds and you had to have this or that. Everybody is practically set up the same.
The customisation on Vanilla AO is amazing… your not stuck to certain weapon types or certain builds just because of your class and perks etc.
So my point… Funcom I’m really gutted, I was prepared to pay a 12month sub right away to get playing.
A progression server over a year is a bad idea, we are a sandbox mmo right? You play how you want to, if someone wanted the progression they could do that in their own bubble on the main server.
This should be Notum Wars only, think about the twinks we could have at different level brackets, the PvP and real conflict of Clan and Omni again.
My fondest memories of this game was when Rome was alive and there was many a twinks outside the subway. Nostalgia mmm
I’m rambling, but you wanted feedback, and this is mine. I truly hope you reconsider your idea of progression server and stick to the Vanilla experience most of your true passionate fans are hoping for… Go on think about it, vanilla for 1 year and then decide.
Forget about dailies or anything easymode like that. The real levelling how it used to be. Team missions, I miss them.
I considered subbing for 1 month just for the lowbie experience, but it would just be disappointing and overwhelming when SL got released, too much to do in such a short time and why waste that time when you could spend it on the server that will still be alive.
