More likely because you never shut the [Content removed] up about inane bull[Content removed], most of the time either incomprehensible or completely false, so any valid concern you might have is immediately invalidated.

Hunting hasn't changed but the experience has gotten worse pretty much across the board. Unfortunately.

Pk-wise, still fun as ever.

People aren't restoring their old characters because KRU isn't doing that service anymore. Not be cause they want to make and play new characters.

Right but remember this guy wants a retro server. Implement that packet throttle and all the buggy [Content removed] from back then to go along with it.

Let me make it super simple, and also state that Hijack is more qualified than me to speak on this:

Adding to the current game, "creating" a private server, easy.

Removing things from the current game, "reverting" the current game into a private server, not easy.

If you want to make a retro server that's like old school nexus I'll give you all the files to go run a private server of Aspereta. It's essentially the same thing as old school Nexus but it has a tiered dungeon system that you can get gear from. Enjoy. https://github.com/kyokokken/jGoose

Yes. Don't you have special insight into this? Please elaborate if so - that would be the easiest way to shut me up. Maybe DM can weigh in. Last I checked, copy+paste was a thing in computing. Also, the delete key is a thing. Dev presses delete until only pre-Vortex caves remain, delete overflow, delete Woodlands, delete Nagnang, delete Tangun, control+c, control+v, and voila! New, retro server. It's not like you're reinventing the wheel - the code is already there. I'm guessing it would take a single person one month to do this project once they understand how everything works. A year from now, the new devs Wony hired this year should be familiar enough to pull it off, no? Maybe tack on another month for Wony to set up CRM stuff, prep kruna shop, etc. The problem with asking for new content is that it's not easy to dream up new, solid content. It's far easier to reuse content that's already been built. No creativity necessary.


No that's not how it works. You can't just delete code and then things revert back to how they are. Think of it like like a sweater. You don't just get to pull out the threads you don't like and all of a sudden it becomes a t-shirt. Everything is mixed in with each other.

I don't think anyone wants to play a "retro" NexusTK except for you. Furthermore, what's the end goal? The game was BAD back then, it would be even worse now. So yeah, great, selling exp at 99 becomes relevant again. So in many years the game just becomes what it is now. 99 is easy to get to, leeching is simple, etc. So then what? We re-retro once again?

This feels like the least fleshed out idea of all time for so many reaons.

You think that making a retro server would take LESS EFFORT than putting more content into the game.

I think we can be done with this now.

1. Takes 3 hours to get to 99 instead of 3 weeks. If you don't see the difference and why that matters, your brain must be switched off.
2. Adventure/Glory/Legends doesn't even exist anymore.
3. Quests are broken because everyone just has everything. Need a bunch of WBs for Rogue Moon? Just ask around, people will give you them for free.
4. Blank slate. <--- Stop fixating on the retro part of a new server, because this point is massive for a new server's target market.
5. There is zero incentive to take up most crafting efforts. Starting a new warrior who's a gemcutter? Everyone's already GM+. Pursuing a craft feels hollow because your clanmate can just do it for you. There goes about 1/4 of the game.
6. Starting a new character and looking to hunt? Oh ya, no one is anywhere near your stats. How do you not understand how this is different than a new server?
7. As a result of 6, leeching is the only real way to progress which makes the game incredible dull. Leeching would go away overnight on a retro server, then eventually come back in a vastly diminished state since old school NTK didn't have all the extreme leeching opportunities it does now.

I just gave you 7 real, tangible examples of how the two servers would be different (and I just woke up!). I'm guessing you won't directly address any of them, just like you didn't address anything from my last post where I @Doctor'd you. When one person pulls quotes and directly addresses them in an argument and the other doesn't, it's generally a sign that the person pulling quotes cares more and has a stronger argument. It shows I'm actually thinking, while you're on autopilot, spewing nonsense. I mean, saying "There is nothing better about 'back then' than right now" is just blatantly wrong. At the very least, you're ignoring all the community/dreams/reddit posts over the years of people wishing Glory/Legends were a thing again. It's so easy to poke holes in your posts, yet so difficult for you to poke holes in mine. 90% of the replies in this thread amount to "I don't think that will work" with weak or zero logic backing it up. Once again, DM is the only person who even tried because he's one of the only people on these forums who can think critically.


1. Good.
2. So add another character slot or two to accounts and re-open them, they had existed well into the new client.
3. So make some new quests.
4. Game is a blank slate now.
5. So put more emphasis into crafting and create new items and recipes.
6. That's what happens to every MMO. WoW isn't creating a retro server either because most of their players are max level. How do you fix this? Make things more soloable and make long quest lines that give you experience well into marks.
7. Not true, and also leeching existed to a high degree before you even played.

Feel free to give me 7 more.

Dude. I don't understand what what you think would be rehashed. The game's content right now is pretty much EXACTLY what it was 10 years ago, 15 years ago. The game is better now than it was back then, simply because there is more content now than there was back then. There is nothing better about "back then" than right now. The only difference was that NexusTK wasn't an archaic monstrosity of a game compared to what was around back then, and so more people played it. As more games came into the world, as better games came into the world, people left NexusTK.

Creating a retro server does nothing. It doesn't bring back anything that we don't have now. It doesn't change anything. The problems that have caused the game to die out right now would be the exact same problems that would exist in a retro server.

What I don't understand is what we get out of a retro server. What does that bring to the table? Nostalgia? Great... let's all meet up and play Rodger Rabbit and Mavis Beacon Type Tester too.

People don't play the game because the game sucks. Hunting isn't fun or challenging, items are static and boring, and to pk you need to grind stats hunting for years, and we're not even getting into the fact that the paths and subpaths have remained completely unbalanced for almost 2 decades now.

Unless a reset magically turns this into a completely different game, you're going to lose more players who don't want to play the same crap game over again than you'll gain people.
