one change that would make you feel good

hypothetical scenario: graal will make any one single change that you decide is worth while, and will implement it exactly the way you want. leaving out how long it would take them to actually make this change happen or whether or not it's physically possible to make the change; what would you decide is a worth while change, one that'd make you feel good that you actually play graal?

personally, i would like to see trial accounts be treated the way they used to be handled back in like, 01, where they were actual accounts and could play as long as they liked, but none of their data would save

i think they might like the fact that they can actually keep playing instead of having scattered bits and pieces of gameplay.

i would feel good if v2's interface was implemented to it's full extent while keeping the functionality of v5+ minus the internal playerlist/pm windows

I don't know if this would be able to be put into practice, although maybe trials could be able play limitless during the weekends. No observer mode or anything like that, simple enjoy the game on the same terms as a P2P account.

I actually think it could be quite nice, hopefully resulting in a higher playercount. However, pherhaps the P2P accounts should get a benefit as well, so they do not feel excluded. Pherhaps a decrease in the monthly cost of Gelats? (lowering prices, which already has been suggested)

Maybe someone has suggested this before?

However, it just came to my mind that this would probably not have a very big impact on servers like Zodiac..still, it is worth a thought!

New forum administration. Idling on UN has taught me that Graal is doing nothing wrong, iPhone kids come in by the dozen. I've never had aspirations for the actual game, especially considering I grew up on servers like Delteria and GK that are rock bottom now.

But these forums, they're terrible. Every one of my grievances with Graal are based around the terrible ways these forums are managed.

edit; or global PRs that actually have some input in the directions graal goes in

Adding the older trial restrictions is useless without lowering prices.

My number one: lowering prices. Even marketing it different would help ($5/month instead of $60/year).

Regarding trials:

Not really sure what to make of that.

Personally, I'd like to see Graal go back to being free to play. I know this is not going to happen, ever. Although, that is probably what I'd appreciate the most!

Yah, me too.

What about making Graal F2P this summer?

One change I'd love to see is the abolition of the observer mode and trial systems all together. Ghost mode wasn't that much better either, and littered with bugs that really didn't give ghosts the ability to actually preview the world... when scripts don't function, what can they really do? Most of the time important links didn't work because they were scripted, and tiledefs never loaded. I don't think I need to explain my hatred of observer mode.

In-game limitations like Zodiac and GK are doing are way better, and I'd love to see this globalized by v6.
