2 more years of classic and kunark sounds just terrible. The p99 experience for me is all about 1-59, so I'm sure I'll play, but honest to god the idea of starting over and fighting the unemployed masses is just mind numbing.

Manastones really arnt that great and playing as a Dark Elf gets old fast.

The only thing fun about playing untwinked is knowing your next char can be twinked.

You’re asking in an echo chamber of autism. Trust me unless you’re some power gamer green will be lame af at least at first because classic and kunark is so small can’t handle this pop.

yeah but people had dial up modems that would boot you from time to time and people held full time jobs back then.

we are now in an era of man children with cable modems and obama phones.

green server was supposed to compete with classic wow but when blizzard gets 15 a month per player its impossible to compete purely with volunteers.

I remember 300 on during a weekday and around 800 online on the weekend, pre kunark Bristlebane server. Burned into memory because I had a conversation about the player number with the guy who got me into EQ and PC games.

I imagine Green is mostly for experiencing "oh haha this is what it's like to try to grind xp in unrest with rusty weapons and cloth and no level 60 druid buffing us" and then after you realize how slow leveling is half of the population quits and the other half struggles to be the coolest kid on the short bus by getting a manastone or guise.

No guys with 2 accounts full of level 60s giving plat and low level items away in EC either, but it will never be the same. They got a fully detailed wiki to look at, having access to what? 90% of the games mysteries instead of like 5% of them. Plus "gaming" being normal for over 20 years. They will never get a chance to truly suck but not realize it. Polished Granite Tomahawk is phat lewt? woot!

Will any of them have their bottoms eat their desk chair when they wander into Kithicor Forest at night?
