Ok I just want to know what everyone else thinks. Zone players which when I first started playing were usually in the 70's have now dropped to the 30's even when a new update was added earlier today. IS zone dieing? If it is what could be done to save it?

im afarid it is with more Classic payerworlds opening Zone's palyercoutn will go down and Era is also dieing and we might get most of ppl from Era back on zone so unless Era just goes off compeltey and never reutrns zone is dieing and i dont want to die its ym fav server =(
how to save:
1.a new zone Admin
2.Gps (not even Ets are on much anymore to do work besides Jesse)
3.let see Zone goes back to classic it would bring Zone's playercount though 100...
4.More STAFF

Though I voted no, problems include:

Gwars, Koth and such are poorly planned. Zone wars was fine until they messed up it's mechanics, etc.

Lack of gun updates.

Lack of class updates.

Lack of better event system.

Lack of actually being able to keep the players into the server.

Lack of trials wearing tags. Back then there was many people because trials liked being part of guilds. Guilds always fought eachother and such which led to a stronger community. Wasn't half the server trial back then?

I do fun events. Those count as events, the world doesn't revolve around weapon events. I just did another server vs dark ops last week or something.

Ok lets put it this way. What would you do to babylon if it was dieing and could that be done to zone?

Actually you're right, babylon IS dying. But the reason is different, moreso the management. Zone is lacking updates.

im on alot so i wouldnt count on it...hes been playing Zodiac which he is now most ppl are playing it and 50% of zone's ppl are there

So? I'm not someone who plays just one server. If you haven't noticed im spread out everywhere. I play Era, Zone, Valikorlia, Classic, and now Zodiac.

i got on buddys list so when im on Era and hes on tag i can get my butt to Zone and win the event

The population count on every server always spikes up to begin with, and then players decide which they want to stick with more, and the populations smooth out again. Zone isn't dying, it has even recieved updates recently. It's still as fun as it has been.

dude2020
08-20-2006, 12:41 AM
i do agree its fun but the Updates are jsut adding Old stuff back so w/e

Draenin I'm disappointed. Zone was much more fun early 2005. I had almost no complaints about it back then and we all know how much I complain!

What Zone needs.
- 1 more ET. I nominate Cor.
- Updates, not reviving old planets. Note how no one goes to Alpha anymore.
- Trails need tags back. Zone died when they lost it...
- The jail to be uploaded so ET's can do more then say stop and /kick...
- More prizes to be given to Vulcan so we can actually host more events.

I do bealive Zone is dieing because it is very boring. If you are going to make updates I would reccomend new weapons and a brand new map. From what people are saying, Alpha is old and so is Wildcross. We need a brand new map, that is big and more adventurous. More like Irica but bigger and more obstacles. Also we need more buyable items. I think we are lacking them...

As for things that could help.
-Add a new ET, infact make it two.
-ET needs to be responsible and not just their for the power....
-New Weapons
-New Map
-New Items (Bombs etc....)
-More event items and more events. *More event ideas, not just a server vs a guild or a weapon event*
-Jail, I agree with Jesse, Zone needs a jail.
-Updated weapons*.

*Meaning ice cannon for instince, it is slow and everyone can see the aim so no one ever gets hit by it......

No, No, and ohhellno. Zone doesn't need more weapons, events, maps. It needs more content than just Player vs. Player PKing. Currently it's just "LAWLAWLAWL I PKED YOU NUB!" Which gets old after awhile...

It needs more event weapons and events. This problly will be added so it doesnt matter. We would rather sacrifice 1 player for about 20 more which come from updates. Maybe have an adventure map? Killing off futuristic alien creatures on maps such as cities to desolate wastelands. This would also make your character better for that mode only. For instince:
Adventure Mode: Seperate from the other maps, adventure mode is a whole new Zone. You buy all weapons and you get speed boosts for your rank gaining. You get exp and money just like on the other planets but it wont count on to the other maps, so your money and exp..kills/deaths and health will all be different from adventure mode to normal Zone.

Irica lame fest. Bigger map=More spread out players its good when they are grouped more tightly. Obstacles=????

-Add a new ET, infact make it two.
-ET needs to be responsible and not just their for the power....
Who? im guessing cor and who? The problem is you can have more ET's but what good will it do?
-New Weapons
Photon cannon? They had some ideas for other weapons as is my understanding they were someones ideas for new guns*cough VULCANS *cough
-New Map
Ones being made I believe.
-New Items (Bombs etc....)
What else can you sugest? VUlcan has grav grenades or something I saw him used like the week after gwars was added they just have to stick them in.
-More event items and more events. *More event ideas, not just a server vs a guild or a weapon event*
I believe that they had an idea for more event items but someone didn't tell stefan *cough VULCAN *cough man Im coughing his name a lot
-Jail, I agree with Jesse, Zone needs a jail.
Won't help much the glitchers will just glitch more to get out.
-Updated weapons*.

Ice cannon can't be seen by the other team anyway. Make it faster like you click and then they are frozen its slow for a reason and its because it takes so long to unfreeze

I agree!

Yes it hasn't been gone that long and they all went to ctf.
- Trails need tags back. Zone died when they lost it... .
That would make it more fun but then there is less reason for trials to upgrade
- The jail to be uploaded so ET's can do more then say stop and /kick....
Well if they are mouse warping jail won't help will it?
- More prizes to be given to Vulcan so we can actually host more events. He had ideas for a few more event weapons as is my understanding. VUlcan that is

The funny thing is, they don't know how to warp, they just downloaded a program to do it. The actual people that program the hacks are very smart, and it's a shame they use their scripting powers for stuff like that. :(

EVENTS ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE HELD ALL THE TIME

Especially ones on Zone, seeing as we only have 3 prizes that actually matter.

And besides, Crono, Jesse, and Vulcan host enough fun events, so stop complaining.

Also, Zone isn't dying. Periodically, we'll get 60+ players. And If you didn't notice, Zodiac just went classic, so a bunch of people who played Zone after losing their gold, when they played Zodiac when they still had it, or going to play there again. At least for a while.

If you hack you will just be booted from the game client....

Hackers are easy to figure out, if you have a highly valued scripter for your server, well enough said.

You cant leave Jails, theirs usually only 1 door and thats for the GP to exit. Also, if Zone allows me. I will make a jail and add some scripts.

-Jail sets players name to "Name" (Zone Jail)
-GP sets his player name to "Name" (Zone GP)
-/open1 and /open 2 open up the two jail cells.
-No talking in Jail (If you try and type a message will come up which says no talking....

Any more things a jail needs?

Stone_Tower
08-22-2006, 09:04 AM
Zone needs a majora update, not just old updates from what I was told. Change every map, make some bigger.

Alpha:
Make the map a tad bit larger and reduce the trees, make turrets and more enterable buildings.

Spar:
Add a few more spar arenas, some large and some small. Also make it so only 1 person can fight the bot at a time. This will add to kills and deaths.

Deathmatch:
Make it bigger and dissable the crawl button, too many people hide.

Guild Wars:
Make it bigger and make an area of just ranged attacks. Also add the so-forementioned speeder.

Wildcross: Make it more flat lands and more open.

Irica: Change the bases after everymatch. (A script will do this....)

I like to think of Zone as a nice, crispy bowl of meow mix... When you poor some in, it gets eaten fast... Then you just have to wait until your owner goes to buy some more... When they do buy some more, you have already told your kitty friends about how good it is, so they come along to. Eventually you finish your bowl and this process continues.

Disable it for prize events only. There are no rules in a regular deathmatch.

I always think of graal as a package of skittles. At first you only like the orange and red meaniing classic but eventually youve eaten all the skittles but the green one. Then the only flavor you like is the green one. Zone is the green one :)

See heres my view most of you might want to stop reading. No offense meant to anyone. Stefan bought graal or something and he added a bunch of improvements for a long time and he occasionly or rarely adds updates. If I were stefan maybe I wuolld have better things to do but if he invests money and time into adding lots of additions like runecape for exp. maybe not that many but then when there are lots of updates the players liike it tell their friends more people come and graal keeps growing from the prouctivesness of teh system and heres tehe cycle instead:
Stefan occasionly to rarely adds updates so less people play due to nothing new. That means less people subscribe. Taht means his constant income from graal is shrinking so why wouldn't he rather put maybe a grand into advertising graal on a good game site and then having hkis community grow so then he has more players and thus more money and ltos of pizza!!!! :)

Zones already dead, or what glimse of hope, pride and honour it once had is. All that were left with now is, nubs, laughter (Sometimes) and SUICIDE (usually causes laughter)...

Zones Oldest were greater than ever, im not sure wether thats coz they had better PCs then or they were better trained or, basicly the noobs they ownt sucked more but its obvouse that zones legends today cant compare at all to the old 1's...

We used to go like 100-200 kills without dieng once, and we only had 5 meds then.. Now we have 10 cookies too and i sometimes struggly to get 60 kills without dying...

Zone was full of noobs because it was new, fresh, and back then everything got u buzzed "OMG I TOOK BASE 1 ALL BY MYSELF! 5 on 1!!!" (Quote by me).. Now its "Ha owned, zzz...." Its obviouse were all ur noobs have fled.. ZODIAC! the nub land of nubs and there nuby mums :P.. But its New and attractive so its popular. It will be dead soon too just like Mal and GK..

Not much we can do really, sept train new legends, talk about history or even write 5 page essays in forums like im doing :).. No new guns will bring zone back to life. Only the people who once played here wud.

Zones already dead, or what glimse of hope, pride and honour it once had is. All that were left with now is, nubs, laughter (Sometimes) and SUICIDE (usually causes laughter)...

Zones Oldest were greater than ever, im not sure wether thats coz they had better PCs then or they were better trained or, basicly the noobs they ownt sucked more but its obvouse that zones legends today cant compare at all to the old 1's...

The old legends turned into noobs. You know who you are.

Lol yer i turned into a noob, and i have reason too. Because 1 i dont play zone like a nerd all day like i used to and 2 i lag like fk pretty much 24/7 (IF ur refering to me).. And uve joined the noob side too, u must admit. We all suck now, zone has no legends -.-...

Now its "Ha owned, zzz...." Its obviouse were all ur noobs have fled.. ZODIAC! the nub land of nubs and there nuby mums :P.. But its New and attractive so its popular. It will be dead soon too just like Mal and GK..
XD Note how its been *new* for a good 3 months, and it lowest playercount (not including the FIRST time anyone has gone on) has been 60. Zodiac won't die anytime soon... It gets several updates daily.

Wow my point exactly, new stuff wow.. New stuff grows old. Gws was old within 2 weeks zones players droped by atleast 20 players, everyone went back to Iricia.. Bringing back the old planets made no effect, probly around 5 players increase. kthxnourwrong :)

Ok, you just proved yourself wrong. Shut up and stop argueing. New things brings players. If Zone got an update ever 2 weeks, then it would always have players. (heres where you proved yourself wrong) you agreed with me, new things brings new players... And regardless. You are in NO POSITION to say I'm wrong, you said oldbie's will keep Zone alive. If Firebox, Silos and Fexii came back, Zones playercount would increase by 3... OoOo....

I wasnt around back then, but I can assure you old players wont increase the population. Having updates daily, as Jesse said, like Zodiac will attract people. Yen updates Zodiac atleast one time a day, the last update i've seen on Zone was the Photon Cannon, nothing to get over excited about. Zone needs new maps and ideas, that is the bottom line.

Also, new weapons may not bring players to zone, but new weapon ideas will. For example

New Rifle: Brings maybe 10 more people to zone for about a week
New Grenade/Blade weapon: Brings about 20 people to zone for a longer period of time.

I think Zone's weapons repeat themselves which is why zone needs to be completely re-done.

Heh, I wouldnt listen to Jesse anyway. For some blind reason he thinks hes better than me, wiser than me. Wen really hes just blatently ignorent and aragent. Since when does zone actually make a name for itself, about a year ago yea maybe but now its just another playerworld and if possible would probly go classic or hosted. No ammount of guns or levels are gonna attract new players. We need something completly diferent, like a story or something. Like RPG yer that would attract alot of people no doubt but after a few months it will decrease alot because of it being unfair to trials.

Maybe we could have something of a specacular event, like. 5 of zones greatest (New or Old) are voted in to zone leadership. Each is assigned a planet and an army, and then they random pick a co-leader to help them incase they need help or resign, and then about 10-30 people to join there army. They would have a perminant guild tag every time they logged on zone untill they resigned, zone would be at war and everyones happy for a few months. Then we anounce a winner for the war. While zones up around 30-50 players think of a new idea to keep them there.

New staff on zone is BADLY needed coz theres never any work lol.

Zones staff, aren't really there. They log on RC and sit there, and do there job. There like one of those lazy security guards. They just sit around all the time. ^^

No offence to anyone. ;)

Zones been dying for a long time now though. Its not something that just recently happened. When trials had there Health reduced to 80, and there Guild Tags right being takin away, thats when we lost everyone. Our player count went from 35-50, all the way down to 15-25. Then, slowly, new trials started playing. Why did they start playing? Because, November is when all the newbs come to Graal. And it had just so happened to be November.

New players will come shortly. Zone needs new everything. New weapons do draw in some new players. But for the people (Trials) that cant use the weapon, they tend to get mad and go find something else to play, or leave Graal.

Zone needs new ideas. Im already in the process of thinking-and making- some new things for Zone. Not sure how well it will turn out, but I am working on something.

Heh we all have great ideas every now and again. We just need staff to make the dreams come true, which we dont. :(. GL Sayzorzness er :O?.. People think there cool wen they setthere name as that :P .. There not.

I love how you seem to think you smart :) Even though I'm right and everyone agrees with me. :)

What people like you don't realize, is Zone, being on a Gold Server, it is much harder for Zone to gain players. If any popular classic servers went gold, they would have a hard time gaining activity.

No ammount of guns or levels are gonna attract new players.
Once again, still wrong. New levels+guns will being new players. I don't care how long they play for, but it will bring new players regardless. *Waits for you to prove yourself wrong AGAIN*

Wow, I actually agree...

All of the bold letters, no. The idea is alright I suppose. Needs more thinking involved, go further with it.

Server guilds bring many people. I can see it failing though. Too many people that just sit around and talk to friends instead of pking.

On Zone, friends don't pk each other. They use ctrl S, and E when they walk by each other...
