I'd like to see the end product of this 'change' especially since the Gelat shop is going to be removed, that was a foolish decision.

I just recently spoke with Stefan, and from what both me and Tenchry understand, Zone PC is very likely to be shut down or merged with iEra (meaning Zone will become just a minigame within Era), despite updates that I may add. That means any work that I do is likely to be deleted. With this in mind, I am not sure whether I should continue with the restoration of Zone.

Apparently to Stefan, Zone is a lost cause and is slated for removal x.x

I guess plans should be taken as a pinch of salt, which on the plus side means it could change again.

From personal experience, if you know you're going to have enough time to remain dedicated to the project for the foreseeable future, and you're confident you can develop and implement your ideas, it could be worthwhile to persevere with it. Servers largely overseen by Graal's management aren't going to have the luxury of the long time required to build the "perfect server", and are always going to be sticking to this comfort zone where it's possible to make enough money on a weekly basis without doing anything too complex.

To put it simply, if you have the ambition and can prove your ability to match this ambition, I don't think your work will be scrapped. The worry really would be the issue of short term vs long term where you may have to sacrifice one for the benefit of the other.

will not be great to see zone taken down, but what i dont get is this.

surely if stefan plans on shutting down pc zone, there would be no harm in him atleast trying the suggestions you put forward reguarding the gelat shop.
if it does work, then zone may come back and stefan will make money. if it dosent then theres no loss.

i really dont see the reasoning behing not even attempting changes to zones gelat shop when quite clearly, it ruins zone and is unused.

stefan should give you absolute control over everything to do with zone before he decides to remove it. i would think its in his best interest.

Very bad decision, not surprised though.

From my understanding of what I just read in above posts, **** surprisingly just got a whole lot worse. Have to admit though, the time I had on Zone was by far my best Graal experience.

Stefan why not also allow PC the "zone minigame?" Only benefits you if you plan to have make one for Era Iphone. And considering you took everything PC Era has, how about returning the favor!
