Default Should there really be a red 2.0? The age old question

Blue: Filled with raid drama + vulak DKP farmers
Green: "it's alright" (send quake pls)
Red: Drug users + boxers

Here's the problem: people won't stop being cringe and asking for red 2.0!

Why red is fine by itself

-People are still playing on it
-Peak 50 population
-No actual reason to delete it

Why do people not want to play it?

-It's filled with drug users
-No one wants to get ganked by 4 (one of them is a boxed cleric) overweight middle-age men and get yellowtexted to the whole server
-"low population"

Remember when red was fun?

-200-300 peak population
-Empire + Ragnorok days??
-People actually pvp with honor? (mostly)

Solution to "Red 2.0":

1. Delete red entirely and tell them to piss off to rise of zek
2. Do nothing and let them complain on forums for all eternity

Devs are based

Thanks for reading

If you actually want the discussion, there was staff interference when it started to get popular (300+ nightly). They took the XP bonus away and made it standard blue rate, sent the pop back down to 80-90. Intentional or not, there was something building there.

Red was never allowed to thrive.

Super cringe to "ask for" something the devs have already stated their intention to launch.

Red was just the test server for blues patches. no reason to have a second test server.
it got Kunark first for a few days, bugs were found and fixed before blues launch
same for velious

I would play Red 2.0 but would likely be griefed off the server like the other 90% of the population would be.
