I mean, logically if you have a product that is well liked, and you built an empire from, would you change that to something else, when people are happy with how it is?
I know as the old saying goes "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." And people loved Classic for what it was (in your case). But now, Classic isn't classic anymore, which for a lot of people dosen't feel the same. Graal is an ever-changing place, wether we like it or not. I personally don't like not having Mithica to kick back on, and I have yet to find a server which makes me feel like I'm at "home" when I'm on Graal. It is things like that which make me long for the past, but at the same time, Graal must grow to allure new people to play it as it's standards are always being pushed to newer extremes; and with those rasing standards, some people forget to appreciate the things that made Graal, well...Graal.

Well if you really want an old feel player world try to make one.
But you will fail.
Like Tyhm said it's the newness of the game you miss and no matter what you do your neverb going to get that back.
The only things that are going to give that is new servers which are completly different from the norm, like Graal Kingdoms, but you don't seem to like that.

The only reason you and everyone liked bomys as it hasn't been done before and was new, so everyone liked them. There hasn't been a new idea since.

I looked over the 1.1 level pack once. There were some good quests that I can't fathom why they were removed - it musta been some time before I started playing, the whole thing in L13...
but other things were removed for a good reason, and the aliens (spaceships) were there as early as 1.1, I fail to see how it's bastardizing the theme to build on that. Even Zol's Snow Town and the sodding CASTLE referred to the Aliens and their technology.

A lot of stuff was removed because it doesn't and didn't work right - that's life.

About my playerworld comment: I ment the CURRENT PLAYERWORLDS. Nothing is really matching the quality. For some reasons, it could be the community, the lack of staffers, the lack of new things, no guide to the quests (Where are you supposed to go?)

Many things. All in all, I want more servers like classic.

The point is that times change... The only way to get that full-classic effect now is to go back in a time machine before n-pulse and play.

To be Staff on every server, and help every server so graal can get better.
I will not quit until i helped every single server, not even graal2002 .

Ofcourse, Private or servers on the server list.

it's imparative that everything advances. there is little to speak of on the subject at hand. follow my lead... give up and linger in the shadows of a once great game, pondering if the greatness will return in spite of the mistakes that still plague it today.

The level standards have risen greatly so unless the server had great quests, NPCs etc it wouldn't get far.
Then remake classic with 2002 graphics and modified npcs.

You don't need to be staff on a server to aide them.
