Changing the game has never worked on p99. We are only months in and there are obvious problems already. What makes this change different? This is a glorified beta test and its not working for the benefit of the community as a whole.

The majority of players don't know what a Vulak is or where the halls of testing are. Rooted dragons don't mean shit to people who don't raid. The meta change means small and medium sized guilds can't reliably take down high tier content in ToV, and that sucks, but it's how the meta is right now.

Its almost like in the expansions after Velious and Luclin they realized the way it was on classic fucking sucked for anyone who had a job. Who couldn't always wake up at absolutely retarded hours of the night to kill mobs. When green comes out I really do hope instances are what the custom content is. Leave group zones alone, but letting everyone see all the content once a week (hell make it every 2 weeks so people can space out their raids and balance a personal life so theyre not just staring at their screen like a junkie scratching their skin waiting for their next fix) would be better for literally everyone.

Take a look at what Blizzard does best: taking a game with a solid concept, polishing it up, and making it more appealing for a wider player base. They took one look at Everquest dungeons and raids and went, NOPE! Instances, baby! It worked so well that later EQ expansions added them.

On top of that, we've had years of "solutions" where the server developers fix one problem by adding another. "We have a serious rat problem on the island, let's release a shit ton of mongooses to kill them all! Okay, great, what are we going to do to keep the mongoose population in check?" 30 years later...

Hyjal, you can point fingers at certain groups of players and specific problems in specific zones, but what it comes down to is the game's infrastructure. P99 is unique, in both it's appeal and problems, that is simply comes down to how well people work together and communicate. Unfortunately, we all know how well that goes.
Yeah this is a free game that is polished to its original retail level and well maintained with a lively active playerbase and good support staff. Despite that, drawing from the entire population of planet earth, it can't attract more than a couple thousand nostalgia questers that built up a tolerance for the bad design 20 years ago returning to relive it.

Uninstanced content is just that universally unappealing to everyone, because it turns out taking the effort to log into an RPG, make your character, and then stand around with nothing to do because all the content was cleared by somebody else is, well, stupid.

With high number guilds competing for mobs the crawl will no longer happen, it will turn into a train away trash while killing a dragon like predicted.

There will be tons of players that will still log in to kill these dragons throughout this meta.

Just as Alexander Fleming stumbled upon the usefulness of moldy cheese, Rogean and Nilbog have discovered a treatment for Doljonijiarnimorinar flare-ups.

Rooted dragons are fun when there's a quake and you can decide to clear from eashen, trips, sisters or go west. Not as much when they are spread out over 3 days.

You need to eat more L-lysine to help with that.

1-3 Quakes a month would mean even <Qeynos Fishing Club> could get a raid mob
