Need Feedback & Opinion
« on: Feb 25, 2012, 09:31 pm »
So yeah, RO and most of the servers has become quite boring these days so I was thinking of making my own. However, I want mine to be innovative and unique. Fresh but also retains the qualities that made RO what it was. Rate is High but balanced drop rates.

Some of the features I was thinking are these:
Pre-Renewal - I'm totally against Renewal s***.
No custom jobs
Few but balanced custom items and monsters - Just to add some flavor
Extremely rare wings with minimal stats (along the lines of +1/+2 to all stats)
Colosseum: Gladiator Battles w/ Betting System - Basically that, there are gonna be gladiator-like match offs where everyone is required to watch. Spectators are allowed to place bets.
Territoral + King System - A King will be hailed in each major town (by King of the Hill Fashioned Game). Privileges include: Title, Custom Non-OP Expiring Equip, May choose to enable PvP in his area, recall everybody in Town (has cooldown to prevent abuse) and special dungeon only accessible to him and his Imperial Guard
Town vs. Town
Monster Invasion
Player and Guild of the Month
GvG
Auctions
Casino


Do share your thoughts on my ideas and suggest some events and features you're wishing to see in a private server.

Remove wings, there are many more different ways you could put on lower HG than those. Ex: Angel Wing Ears sprite compounded on lower headgear but still visible as mid. But removing wings is just my opinion.

Why are you opposed to them? I wasn't thinking of giant wings that everyone has in other servers which are extremely OP. I was thinking of little Angeling/Deviling Wings that 1 in 100 people have.

It's just my feeling that I'm not playing RO anymore if I see those around. But hey, do what you want, I know there are quite a lot who'd love wings, but definitely not me.

It's not about doing what I want, it's about doing what YOU want. People forget that everybody is interested in themselves. The best way to convince someone to do something is by making them WANT to do it. This is why I'm asking for feedback, because I don't have my head too far up my donkey.

Hmm, why the dislike from wings? Because it's too deviated from the glory days of RO we loved? Do explain, because I want to understand.

I pretty much explained why I hate wings. And also there are quite a lot of people who'd love wings, so it isn't only what I want. I was just stating my opinion.

Everybody ._____________. No to the everyone part, even bg at kro now has a queue system. Add instead a system that when the people that bet assist to the fights, they get a boost in the reward.
Territoral + King System - A King will be hailed in each major town (by King of the Hill Fashioned Game). Privileges include: Title, Custom Non-OP Expiring Equip, May choose to enable PvP in his area, recall everybody in Town (has cooldown to prevent abuse) and special dungeon only accessible to him and his Imperial Guard
I'm a bit against part of the recall since some people don't like/want to be recalled just because someone else decided too. Even with the anti-abuse system it may end making a town not being used in the long term. Instead I suggest a pop-up asking yes or no or having an option in a npc that you can acess by pm or in the main town that is a neutral place where you decide to be or not to be recalled when people use that.

Some suggestions:
- Party instanced dungeons for newbies not 89+ with rewards to promote party play in the begin[can even be based on the current dungeons of ro or even use monsters with edited stats]
- Real dungeon challenges for 89+ players and not the easy mode of ET and Giant Bapho for example[yeah, even with reflect nerf/fix/whatever you want to call it it's still easy...]
- Edit the current easy mode of the mvps and make them hardcore/need always a party of 4+ players to kill
- Remake WoE 1.0, at the moment is pure junk[or just delete it and just stick with WoE 2.0]. 2-3 Custom Maps rotating each week automatically with WoE on and with XYZ supplies given by the server and some decent not crappy WoE 1.0 rewards would be nice and having every dungeon of WoE 1.0 as an extra reward would be even nicer
- System to trade XYZ items for gear[doesn't even have to be bg badges, can even be normal loot and doesn't have to have every single piece]. Why just stick with a zenny farm madness system when there is people that don't want to farm... Refines and cards and rare gear are/should be the things to sell expensive, not the opposite

 People are claiming that adding wings will add "flavor" to a server. No it doesn't. There is hundreds of servers that has big or small ugly wings in your face, and the only flavor I see is gone wrong sprites in a great game. Everything else sounds fine on your list I suppose, especially the betting system. Reminds me of another server that has spectators watching and ended up being a cool event. But if you think customs wings are going to add flavor to your server, it won't. It's just two types of people for it - you either like customs items or you simply don't.

You don't have to be so defensive because of the person above, he was stating his opinion. If you didn't want people opinions to be replied here, you shouldn't have posted your thread here. NOT everyone likes customs, so learn how to take advice maturely.

The gladiator event is REALLY awesome. Though keep in mind the first think I thought of is how to rig the system. Maybe keep a ranking of sorts? Say if it's your first time fighting in the Colosseum, people can only bet a maximum of like 10k zeny or something. A player with a high rank can have maximum bets of upwards of 1mil or whatever would be a large amount for your server.
