Blue is so top heavy and has been around for so long that lack of new blood almost doesn't matter. Stuff will still be camped and raid targets are still going to die within minutes of popping. Lower level zones will be the hardest hit for a while. In 3 years when all this new blood is faced with the prospect of starting over or playing on Blue we'll see Blue become king again.

however, if i was brand new to p99, yeah, i'd prob start on green.
For Green, I pretty much plan to only play the classes Iíve never really played before/much at all whether on live back in the day or on P99 (Enchanter, Mage, Pally, Rogue). I donít intend to recreate any classes I used to play, so I could see someone on Blue who has pretty much played everything extensively not having a desire to play on Green.

That generally doesnít happen when games implement seasonal play. Starting fresh is fun.

Blue was a beta test, red is a failed ruin.

Wipe them both.

3 greens.

I can't believe there's even an argument about this. It's the entire point of the project.

Thanks for taking my snarky statement literally, it’s cute? Kinda?

Am I learning that those that remain on blue will be largely humorless and unable to tolerate a playful jab?

Yikes.

It's not quite that simple that less gear and less max characters = more difficulty. This fails to account for people's behavior. Expect to see a whole lot of playing it safe to compensate.

While it's true that twinks with parked 60s will have an easier time handling mobs, they'll also have strong incentive to round up more at a time, chain pull, and push deeper into the dungeon for the higher profile camps. Players without this kind of security will simply lean towards lower-risk gameplay - more mana checks, more med breaks, more room timers, more resistance to pulling the named or branching out from camp.

I've played live. I still remember that trapped feeling when your group can't press on and explore because the cleric has work the next day and insists on just clearing the same hall. I've been in that group that doesn't have a puller because nobody wants to be the guy without the zoneline right on their six so everybody just waits in awkward silence for respawns. I've seen the frequency of trains in zones with a moderate population but no available rez.

You can always count on most people to choose the path of least resistance, perks or not. The difference between leveling on green and blue will simply be a matter of risk threshold and pace.

Difficulty = Not fun?

We're gonna have to agree to disagree here. I don't see the point in playing a game that is so easy.
I still get a good laugh when ppl on the forums claim green is gonna be difficult, it is not, knowledge is everything and ppl on this server have had 20 years worth, we know all the strats, we know where all the good gear is, we know the good exp camps/quests, i give it a month at most before we start seeing level 50s with BiS gear, then when the planes hit those zones will be a cake walk as well, playing on these servers is for fun not difficulty, even raids arent difficult specially with the use of broken items that shouldnt be used the way they are aka things like the hoop and soulfire. I'll repeat it again, the knowledge is what made classic EQ hard, the vast majority of ppl didnt know where to farm, how to pull certain camps, how to beat a certain boss, the best exp quests, and where to level.

Blue is a museum server. Not sure if you missed that.

lol at the blue merge argument, like most people will still be playing on green even 2 years from now, green is for the nostalgic trip to 50 and then 60, and we will do it all over again when purple, and yellow, and pink comes out, seriously 99% of the people are not looking even close to that far ahead
