    this update is not what we all wanted, but can we all agree its a strong first step to rebuilding the server?

    pvp in the "old" days was what made the server strong. the sheer number of people that played it. This update, brings players, which brings money and gives the server room to breathe.

    Right now, if they tried something "new" it could backfire and effectively deal a mortal blow to the server. The pvp system of the old days is a risk free idea. once the server regains a strong base of players, they can focus on other gamemodes play around with ideas for updates. mm return, realism, or hell even a new gamemode. we wont know until we get there. If you've stuck around this long, you obviously have some measure of hope even if it looks grim. But things are looking up now. one step at a time.

    Do you think the server can survive without bringing in new players? Most (not all) new guys despise pain pvp, so you're basically turning to the old players in hopes that they come back without making it enjoyable for new guys.

    Old players enjoyed it. We we're at our peak then so new players will join as well. We need a base before we "experiment" with update ideas

    I don't know if that's a true statement. Just because there's more players doesn't necessarily mean newer ones will stay for a game they don't enjoy as much.

    i agree, im just saying its a small step in the right direction. At least with new players theres are more chances for people to stay.

    The staff team was also much better then. In the early time you didn't have an entire server filled with ban evaders and cheaters.

    Which is a fair point, that's why we're beginning to combat that.

    You would have loved a mod called Daym, unfortunately it’s been basically dead for years now.

    “Most” is a generous description

    To be honest with the amount of messages us staff received about this I'd bet the majority are happy.

    Most of the PVE community does not use the forums in my experience. They don’t speak out like the toxic individuals that exist here.

    If they're not communicating with us that's on them. We don't have telekinesis.

    If you were going to combat this where's the VPN blocker that players have been asking for?

    If you're the Community Manager then why don't you reach out to those PVE players and see what they want?
