The whole VIP thing doesn't seem to be helping out the Facebook server too much.

Well being able to use your ipod account sure beats having to start from scratch lol. I just don't think many people have the dedication to get 7500 gralats each month. I know I don't lol hence I don't play facebook graal much.

It has potential, and much like iPhone, it has room for improvement and expansion.

It's great that the Facebook server has the capability for a high playercount at least.
Currently, iPhone players are the majority of the Facebook Graal playercount. Since iPhone players do not have much incentive to play a clone if iClassic on Facebook, other playerworlds should be given the opportunity to move to Facebook.

Really, the requirements should have been posted before Facebook Graal was even released. The oh-so-dedicated Graal development community could have been preparing whatever server content is necessary for moving to Facebook (or iPhone). We really should have more details than this:

Graal Classic/Era Iphone servers have been transformed to fit Free to Play.

So before switching to free to play, servers will have to introduce Pay items/heads or features.
It would also be nice if GraalOnline began attracting a larger playerbase through means other than word-of-mouth and a handful of review web pages.

I don't see any reason for iPhone players to buy into it, except for the promised monthly VIP item. Even that isn't a good reason. The iPhone server is populated, so why would players want to pay for VIP just to switch to the Facebook server? The VIP system could use some revision.

I don't think iPod Grawl or Facebook Grawl are horrible by any means, but I must say that they definitely have an impact on the playercount of 'regular' Grawl (ie. on the PC). Most players whom have heard of Grawl, would prefer their iPod Grawl/'Facebook' Grawl over the PC version of Grawl. At the end of the day though, the point that I'm trying to make is that regardless of which one is better PC Grawl will eventually fade from the picture if this love of iPod/Facebook Grawl keeps up.

Though, I must say that Facebook Grawl looks lamer than iPod Grawl.

Also, I realize that the creators behind Facebook Grawl definitely don't care about the playercount of PC Grawl, all they care about is the fact that their €s are incrementing. No point crying over spilt milk though, this was inevitable in some ways. iPod Grawl was only the first step. One must accept that Grawl, like many things, has become a business and in this day and age time will tell.

Who knows? Soon you might be sulking around in the latest Grawl merch and purchasing head777.png mugs!


EDIT: I didn't realize they connected the Facebook servers with the iPod servers. I guess they're just trying to market more, and not expand more servers. Phew - you're saved for now..

I guess whenever the word 'Graal' comes into my mind, I can only mock the term for what it has become. It literally, has lost all meaning to me. Grawl is, well, Grawl!

I connect to the iPhone server everytime, I just don't understand why this isn't on the normal Graal client...the flash client is a bit "wat".

A "real" Graal server has no content, it's just pking/spar/chat. Sure servers forced themselves to have quests but I never considered that a part of gameplay. More of an obstacle. Despite what people say, quests were generally not fun at all and was a chore for new players.

Well I guess I can relate, I used to love just that with the game Rune, it had an awesome combat system (expect for the abusive and overpowered jump swing) like parrying, blocking and you could even throw your weapon.
Graal on the other hand has to me always been about questing and exploring (just like zelda) and I would get extremely bored after a while with a server that just relied on pking/sparring.
