well anyways things have become too cluttered on 2001....there is all these little detail tiles added but i think plain grass is better like it used to be...they keep on changing and changing 2001 and the levels will not be like the old days on 2001 ...and 2001 has been ruined because of all this (o newd better levelz mannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn)

I miss the old days too. =(
But I don't really think graal has gotten worse.
I think I'm just bored of playing the almost the same thing for 3 years.
Which is why I look forward to 2002 so much.

Yea, I miss the old days but now since Graal went pay to play I dont think it can ever be as good. Most of the cool people quit just at the thought and rumors of it going P2P...now theres just a bunch of people who think the non pay people are freeloaders and are lower then they are...idiots.

One problem, some non p2p ARE freeloaders. I'm not saying they are lower, but if you go on a non-p2p and say you got p2p, at least one person will want you to share your account w/ them.

Dark Man, Draxi and the rest of NBK...sigh the good days. Most of the people here didnt play back then and consider the good days when Graal 2001 first came out, lol. Well to them it might be, they might just not know how fun Graal used to be compared to now :(

Elven lands was the best, not only the best people. But all the problems and fighting between staff and guilds and conspiracy getting people fired setting people up was all in fun. Brad you were kinda queer in the day I remeber making a level having like bunch of staff playing in it just chilling everyone loved it and you come in like its to plain i could make a better level.

Graal was good before it became P2P, classic became laggier, and after that came all those classic changes that totally ruined it.

Dlaiyre
03-20-2002, 08:32 PM
lol hellraven had a classic classic server on 1.4 ;)
i ... didn't... play... there... *cough*

Anyway, all i remember of EL was stepping out of the newbie house to be raped by Genmo, with his tough guy boots, then i told him to @#%& off and he jailed me so i didn't like the server (hardly the point that i played it on another account...)

Oh and the comment on the New tiles, they are sooo much better than plain grass when done "tastefully."

lol, i remember shortly before the population boom (probably the 2nd, around v1.41rev2) There was an atlantis npulse war, it was nuts, we couldn't understand the dutch ppl and such so we didn't know why we were fighting ^-^ oh the memory's!

*and dont start your omg you not olbie me be leet oldha0xror school from v0000000.1000000001 you newb, i dont care i started 1.39 and i don't care what you think if its something stupid.

03-20-2002, 08:45 PM
I never actually played EL, HEYhost just gave me a job when I had 10 minutes (yes, I know. unfair). You guys don't know of the real old days...

Where GPIN would threaten to review you if you made a harsh comment toward you.

When 1.2 came out and Sardon created the first NPC weapon.

When all those new, exciting heads came out in 1.2 (20-26)

When SPIDER became a hacker and hacked the (Police) guild code and leaked all these guild codes.

When DMX created Ruff Ryders, the most hated guild in Graal, where players like DMX, X-mann, Viper, and Lord Rooks were in it.

When the only place you could go into was RW, then the onlinestart (like 15 people in onlinestart, fun times), and finally when the server shut down for a month.

When there was nothing to do on Graal except ride around and spar, and Zol's Pub was always deserted.

When GPs came out and everyone begged to be one, but only a few people got in.

When PACHUKA always trapped people into his pool with his rock that made you a naked girl. I always saw Hoss in there, along with U-turne (Dark Troopers), and J (U-turne's girlfriend)

When I could have all those saves which had 20 hearts and all the items because we could drop items then use the 20 heart glitch.

Good times, eh? Doubt any of you are from them.

The population boom was not in 1.41, it was when 1.3 came out, maybe in the end of 1.2 when unixmad opened up beta.graalonline.com, a server with no lag. All I remember is it going from 15 players, to 50 players very fast. I remember talking to Kull (maker of Kull's Castle) about how he would always be the only one on.

Jack:
miss old graal?
yeah like that would happen, Graal isnt good enough to be missed in the first place.
Nothing has even changed in graal apart from a few new NPC's and servers so I dont know what you mean by old graal cause all the GFX's are the same and the staff are as corrupted as always!

I think as soon as they released p2p they should have deleted classic, classic sucks. Between now and the time you could choose playerworlds I went to classic about 5 times and stayed there no longer than 10 minutes.

SURE, thats why so many people prefer classic on Graal2001, and thats why classic has the most players from all the servers. classic is the best server, no other server could replace it, but classic could be better if it had the old levels.

I miss the old graal but mainly because of the people I met. I played on old bravo and that was the best server. I remember when El first came out and I went there quite a bit. It was a pretty decent server but there is nothing to compare like old bravo. It was the best. The levels werent that great. But the people that played it were what made it so fun.

I miss old bravo.

Deutch is German for "German"
Just like Franšais is French for "French"
I think a lot of people just want Classic taken down because they think they can go dumpster-diving afterwords. Open up their own PW with the Classic levels.

EoG owned I remeber the Tantalus guild I was in getting King Arthur Fired. We all were like just on the rode under bushes in random spots and one of us acted like we needed help and got KA to come there we all came out from under bushes and ambushed him and he finally started fighting back and hitting us and jailing us etc... Then he got fired i guess for not holding his temper and just ignoring us and telling the chief or captain...But KA is cool now so oh well it was just fun....

As much as I hate to admit it, classic WAS good when it had the old levels. I belive the reason Npulse and UN don't have higher ratings is because nearly everyone who is new to graal goes to Classic. (UN and Npulse certainly have better content tho). I started at 1.3(close, maybe not exactly). When Classic was the only server, It was good back then. After a long time of playing Npulse and UN I went to classic to see if it changed much and when I went around the server I was thinking "Holy crap!! This place sucks now". Most people on Classic have been there for a while and are well known there. Most newbies will end up going there, realising how much it sucks, and going to a PW. Those who are stupid will stay on Classic and delude themselves into thinking it's a good server.

Did you play when it had the old levels? When the version came out that gave you the chance to choose PWs I left classic. Rarely was I spotted in Classic after that, which is why I never saw it deteriorate into the pile of crap it is now.

How can you even say Graal 2001 is a good server? Its a complete shitty server. Classic used to be better, yes, but it still is the best server out.

*shrugs* There are some aspects I miss. There was a lot more innocence when I started, or maybe it was just my own na´vety...but those days are gone now. We can't bring back the copyrighted graphics and names...and as one would expect, I do not miss the old incomplete quests. Gerudo in particular, I do all that for what? Fight the Kageryu, but they were never finished? Fight Kefka, also never finished? Do it all and get to a "Insert boss here" sign?

There was a lot more talent devoted to Classic in those days too...not that Nightlord let any of it in though. He just patently refused to review...he'd delete everything from people whose name he didn't recognize, then post to the news saying the rest were too lame to even reply to. Horrible. Not that I'm any better of course, no submitter working at the moment, only 2 LATs who could man it anyway, but still.

Im guessing you got owned over and over on Classic because you had no fighting skills. Classic is the best server out currently, it was the best server out so far. Im not sure why you think its **** but your opinion sucks ;)
