Classic Servers

Looking at the serverlist, I have to wonder why some servers are allowed to stay classic, or even hosted.

Namely, Delteria and Atlantis. From what I've heard, these servers are under heavy development. What I want to know is, why are these servers allowed to stay on the classic list while under development? Isn't this what UC servers are for? This servers should be removed from the list, and once development finishes, added back on (assuming they haven't completely changed the theme of the server).

N-Pulse is currently working on a "Rebirth" project, which will change the server from a classic-themed server to an RPG server. Why will the RPG "N-Pulse" be allowed to use the name "N-Pulse" as a ticket for going Classic for a server that normally might not even make it hosted? N-Pulse is going from a classic-themed server, to a server much like Zodiac. I wonder if the PWAs were even aware of this project.

And, finally, there are some Hosted servers that usually have 0 players on, and are undergoing no development. This obviously means that players don't want to play the server, and the staff are not interested in fixing the server. I'm not talking about servers like Ol' West and AEON which are actually being developed (I'm not sure about Zenkou). Mainly I'm talking about Graal Legacy which has consistently had zero players since going hosted.

The problem is, you remove the servers and then what? You have like four or five servers on the list... That's not a very appealing number. Then, the sad thing is, there will probably never be any servers to add to that number, save possibly one or two, and the number will just keep shrinking.

I don't agree with what N-pulse is doing, for example, but I think it's better just to let them sit there.

Maybe more deserving servers would fill the spot then

If there are quality servers, they will keep players. Vesporia has been staying steady with players all day today (just closed it again), and we haven't even added the other things we plan to. The problem with classic-themed servers is that people aren't amused any more by blowing up bushes for gralats.

Era, Zodiac, and Unholy Nation are not quality servers and they still keep players.

Which would make you think that any quality server that is fun to play, and has a reason for players to keep playing, would do even better.

The problem is, these servers cover the three main server types (classic, RPG, modern), so instead of creating an Era-like server (with the same game play, but better tiles, graphics, scripts, etc), you have to make a completely different modern-style server (as in, different game play). This is why the PWA should be forcing Era (and all other classic servers) to improve the quality of their tileset, weapons, scripts, etc.

Servers that have players keep players easier because there are more players to play with.

What a concept.

Yeah that pretty much sums it up.

You need a really good server if you want to break people away from UN and such, which is why it's important to cater to different groups of populations.

Vesporia have a good playercount? That doesn't tell us anything.
Graal Gheto also have a steady playercount.
Vesporia, isn't it a Modern/Gun Server? But don't we allready have Era?

I don't think that they should be forcing playerworlds to improve, they should let more servers go to the Classic tab.
That way, there would be more competition between the servers only for the benefit of the players.
