LF> old/new potential players for a MR.
« on: Jul 13, 2017, 10:45 AM »
Hello everyone,

We would like to know how many people that know or don't know us would be interested in a potential new mid-rate server.
Given the fact that ro;restart and phro recently opened new pre-renewal official servers and the hype around them is pretty big we would like to know how high the demand for a new MR at the moment is.

Information I can give out:
  • Pre-Renewal
  • Episode Start: Lighthalzen ~ The Corporate City
  • Rates: 30x30x10x~50x50x20x
  • Max Level: 99/70

Who we are:
We are known mid-rate developer/admins and had servers running under our names for 2-5 years.
So the majority of the MR players probably already played at least once on our server or should know who we are.
If you are not interested feel free to simply close the poll and/or leave your feedback in this topic.

Potential Staff:
- Daifuku: Administrator/Project Leader
- Shourei: Administrative Assistant/Head GM
- Nihad: Lead Developer/Content Developer
- Artemsis: Marketing Strategist/SEM Manager
- Seffi: Game Master/Forum Enforcement
- Akkori: Visual Developer

Oh lord..lol..

Again?...

You have a talent for graphics, you have passion, but I don't think you have what it takes to make a "successful" server.

Why?

I don't think you have a clear idea of what you want on a server. I think you lean towards whatever you "think" players want and you flip flop left and right..

Yes, it's good to listen your players...its not good to change things whenever players ask you to change something.

Find out what type of server you want to run and stick to it. There is room to mold things according to the community but don't mold it so much that you lose focus on the type of server you want to run.

Players all want different things and you can't please them all. Attempting to please them all will just push them all away.

Best of luck, I personally think you should just stick to freelancing or developing for another server but to each their own.

(This is constructive criticism, nothing personal at all. I hope it is useful to you.)

And you make this assumption based on? If you make it based on Elaria Woon Reloaded you should keep in mind that I was not the only in charge and decisions were made together with majority of the community.
We changed the entire server because we wanted to do it after the attempt of a hybrid server failed back in 2016. Not because players asked us to.
Well, there's that regarding "you flip flop left and right/change things whenever players ask you to".

Thank you for your compliment regarding my freelancer work but it is just one of the minor talents I have and according to the current stats of the poll, most people know that.  /no1

I agree, you're very talented.
And I also agree that major changes, once a server is already established, will drive away your player base.

I'd more than welcome a new good mid-rate.  And I look forward to playing on yours.  /no1

With the experience you've had in the past, I think you probably have a good idea of what most stable players look for. (If anyone is considered stable these days.)

Speaking in the most positive attitude possible, please just get a solidified idea of how you want about 98% your server before launching.
Too many servers are making changes on the fly, and they dry up shortly after.
I think everyone wants to see a midrate that succeeds for years.

Best of luck to you.  I look forward to your official announcement.

Why even ask if you aren't doing this out of your own initiative.

You don't make a server no one is interested in, but there are plenty of reasons for making a server, i.e. making money from donations or building the ideal ragnarok online.

If you can't even take the initiative to make the server on your own, then why even bother asking whether players are interested? OP isn't doing anyone a favor when the server gets shutdown because players aren't interested anymore. Besides the point, what makes OP so special anyways?

The thought of asking is an initiative.

Knowing if and how many people would join your potential server (despite not knowing much details) is useful information.
Research is an essential part of marketing. You don't try to sell a product to the world without knowing if there is even a demand for it, right?

I'm unsure how questioning "what making me so special" relate to this topic.
This is just one of my approach to a potential project. If someone have any comments, they are free to post them here.

I'd give it a try for sure. 

I agree that changing major things after the server went live will increase the amount of people leaving.

I'd be definitely interested if you manage to keep the server interesting with hunting quests and other small things to do to keep players busy and get little rewards (or a carrot on the stick method for bigger rewards). Too many mid-rate servers are boring after you got some level 99s and some gear because there's nothing to do and that's the real challenge. If done correctly you could even keep players active that dont love every single other feature of the server.

I'm not sure why people are saying that making all those changes on your previous server was mistake. You had (at best) 20-40 total active players prior to the changes, then immediately following them, the server had gone to well over 110+ players. The primary reason the server died so fast was that World's End event that Nihad put in while Dai was on vacation (also without discussing it with the community). Where normally, GM's shouldn't have to ask the server if they can implement things, however when it comes to an event that(when failed) would wipe the server; I feel that needs some kind of deliberation.

So long story short, still listen to players suggestions.

Hi there Daifuku, I once played your server tho it is a low rate (ElariaRO), I know this is out of topic and I am aware that you would like to make a new mid rate server. So what I am really trying to say is that you are a great Administrator, lots of people were sad when the server you were hosting was closed. I bid you goodluck in your plans, looking forward to it too.

BTW I voted Yes  /heh

I will give it a go if it is a 99/70 pre-renewal server with renewal instances
