Ever thought of rewarding Oldbies? I know I am not allowed to name it, but a certain other MMORPG rewards you for each year you are a member. Not by giving money of anything, but by giving items. This would be cool if Graal did this as well, even if it was just an item on GK.

Good idea, but not that many play GK. But I guess that would be the server to do the items around.

VIP should be named to "Useless Ripoff Deal" or URD.

I would rather pay $19 a year than $50 or whatever gold is now.
Plus we can view the new Graal engine even though it is buggy as heck, we can still use it and input our ideas and report the bugs (gives a feeling of being involved in the process)
I dont see where it is a rip off at all

...I still have yet to see 3.1. Besides, everyone else was capable of downloading and running the 3.0.* versions.

I had both gold and vip (vip recently ran out but I plan on re-subscribing soon) because I like to support Graal. I also agree with Moonie for the reasons mentioned but I believe they should get Fridays and Saturdays rather than just Saturday :x VIP has also gotten a few benefits such as being able to create guilds exclusively (can't remember if this was temporary or not but either way, yeah - you get the picture) and there's alot planned for the future. This idea is decent for keeping players but like.. how would it be done? Maybe every 1000 hours would be better but that may influence people to use macros or so to idle and rack online time. Hm...

Its not as useful if you already have gold. But if you just get VIP its good.

It's more;

Thursday, Friday, Staurday AND sunday.


Graal already got these "gifts". For new year, you could pick 3 items that you wanted..

And how would you determine if someone has been playing long enough to recieve a gift?


Seems rather poinltess to me, I guess.

That's your opinion and you're entitled to it. Like Moon Goddess, its been well worth my money. I don't actually play that often much less on GK. I spend most of my time on the forums and working on Doragon. If not that, then I'm busy leaching/downloading stuff for Stepmania or at work :p

On the old guild thing you could see someones total online time and stuff or something, so im sure there is a way to tell how long an account was registered. I had a few accounts, zell12, zell, Excalibur_mithica (nem made it a staff account pfft)...

It's a ripoff in ways that they didn't give what was told we would be given. (IE. VIP only forum. Hello? It's VBulletin, takes 10 seconds to make dawgs.)

Online time wouldn't work. I don't think players should be rewarded for idling. :(

you get kicked off after like 10 minutes of idleing... So if that happens, then you just remove 10minutes of onlinetime. :) It sucks when you get kicked off for playing Metris or Zorbi Buster or something... :(
