How many UC servers have made it to the Classic tab?

In the 4-5 years that Graal has been selling dev servers how many servers have made it to the Classic tab?

Maloria, which replaced Shaded Legend?
And then Zodiac replaced Maloria when it was taken off?

At the moment there are 120 servers listed as UC.
115 if you don't count the 5 Debug servers.

That is a lot of developers that are wasting their time and money when they have a less than 1% chance of making it to the classic tab, and it seems like servers only ever get added to the classic tab when a server is removed from the classic tab.

But servers almost never get removed from the classic tab. Look at Delteria and Atlantis. They're lucky to ever have more than 1 player. According to www.graal.us AEON consistently has more players than Delteria. So why isn't AEON taking Delteria's spot on the Classic tab? (not that I actually want it to). It seems like there are no criteria for a classic server to remain classic.

Maniaman is on a distinguished road
Maloria was around before the playerworld rental system.

Zodiac is the only successful server that has come from it.
Bravo Evolved was on classic for a short period (couple months maybe?)
There was another server as well, but it only lasted about a month or two.

Era, Zodiac, Bravo Evolved from what I recall.

I think Shaded Legend went down to UC and then re-released? I believe Valikorlia also went down to "UC" in like late 2002/early 2003 and went public again.

Well, it helps if you have friends in high places.

In fact, I'm pretty sure that's the only way...

Maybe there should be a system where a random high activity UC PW is put on the classic tab for like a few weeks every month?

Could help generate interest in working on their project and boost sales of gold accounts(or whatever you need to go on UC playerworlds).

I put most of the blame on developers. I've never seen a server that truly deserved to be moved from the UC tab to the Classic one. Most of the servers are pretty poor quality and never really make it anywhere, and the rest that do show some potential never get finished.

I wish the PWA wrote reviews for playerworlds every week, like they used to, so we'd be able to see server progression.

There's still a PWA?

Wow, yeah, they need to post reviews again.

Reviews are always fun to read. It's a pity they're not allowed to be cynical, sarcastic jackasses while writing them though. I find that very funny.

The majority of under construction servers are pretty much the same as the ones on Classic. I don't think they need another Era or Unholy Nation that's probably why not so many have made it Classic.

No, that's not the only way. Please sprout your ignorance on some other forum.

If all the people weren't spread across fifty different servers there would be more classic servers.

If you people knew how to organize and develop a game, working as a team instead of doing your own crap then there would be more classic servers.

There are too many people on Graal who can't do simple crap like naming levels and files according to rules so they're easier to manipulate by script.

There is just NO organization.

Don't blame the PWA for your own inability.

Vima is an unknown quantity at this point
AEON applied to classic tab with only a classic world, we passed Bells inspection failed HoundiniMan's inspection.
I don't know what Vulcan said or even if he inspected us(?).
We needed to re-pay the server anyways because it took them 1-1,5months to inspect us .
Anyways, now we are working on finishing the modern world, so that we'll apply with both modern and classic world
Hopefully that will increase our chances of getting to the classic tab.

I think the requirements to getting to the classic tab (even if it's good) are too high. Many servers fail the inspection, then the developement staff on that server give up.
Many very talented people on Graal are getting too old for this game. I think Graal need to attract new members.

Why cannot a server be half UC while being on Classic tab?
Isn't it better to have like 15 servers on the classic tab than 5 active servers?
The servers could get removed if they constantly have less than 10 players?!
Why not have 5 modern servers, 5 classic servers, 5 rpg etc?
Why only "1 of a kind"? It would only benefit the players!

It's not impossible, but less servers = less players. Easy math!

Seriously, Cali, sometimes you should just be quiet.

I really like that idea. Would be good for exposure.
