Hello fellow Tricksters! 

 

Today I come to you with an important question regarding Paula. 

 

To this day, we are still trying to implement Paula into the server. HOWEVER, Paula's files are VERY unstable when trying to merge with our server-- they run off of two complete different sets of files, ones which we are still unable to combine. She seems to have the issue that her files are incompatible with Season 2. 

 

We apologize for taking so long.

We were not expecting so many issues with her, especially because in the beginning, things looked like they were going well. 

 

However, due to all this, we do not have a release date on Paula, and cannot promise that it may even be this year (we hope it will be though!)

 

So, I come to you with the question: 

Will you, as a player, be willing to play Paula on a separate server if we had created one, even with all the bugs she has? 

 

These bugs include: 

  1. Some skills do not work. Many do, however.
  2. Some skills are currently overpowered. They will do immense damage
  3. Pets do not have auto-loot, and voices will not be activated. 
  4. There is no Guild System
  5. Tartarus Soul Mechanism does not work

You will not be able to play your rTO accounts on this server, so you will have to start fresh. ???

(THIS I am unsure of. That's why I put ???, haha. I didn't get an exact answer, because there were issues before when doing test servers.) 

 

You could leave some ideas or feedback in the comments below on your thoughts about this matter!

Hello Zen,

 

Of course I would like to try her out, but I would not leave our current server just for her. I personally love the accounts and the guild I had established now in rTO, I could never throw away my darlings like that. I have probably spent many moons more time on here than in eTO.

 

My opinion on starting another server is this:

The current online community on rTO has declined and the server is clearly more empty than in its hay-day. I am unsure how a new server would come into play, in my opinion, I think the current community would do the same and 'try paula' but would go back to rTO after the hype is over.  Only those who would be fine with starting over again would intially stay there, but without things like guilds I am unsure how the life of that server would work.

 

This is just strictly my view, XD sorry if I'm missing something.

<3 Mizzo

My opinion is pretty much exactly this. My poor Duelist has had too much time put into her.

 

However, there is also the fact that if people decide to play on both servers, there will more than likely be double(?) the MS bought. This is a double-edged sword. It helps the server a lot more, yes, but how am I to explain to my dad (I don't have a job of my own right now) that he will need to spend money on both the regular and Paula servers?

 

On top of that, those bugs sound very serious. No guilds? Broken skills in both the nonworking and overpowered senses of the term? If the server does go forward, I hope they are fixed beforehand.

 

This is just what I think. PeachFuzz may have to wait a bit longer.

If it was released, can we share the bugs? (Not the known ones) 

 

And since its in new server, I don't think myShop should be on, or make it free.

 

Other than that, I want to try it out at least, even if it was buggy w/o right animations.

It'd be a good idea to establish a temporary test server first and open it up to the players who would like to test Paula out before transferring her over to the live version of the server. The testers could report any odd bugs/glitches that crop up during the test server run. Perhaps to motivate people to play on the test server, you could do some sort of reward tier system where the players who submit thoughtful, critical feedback/bug reports receive a little prize for their effort. Personally I'd be willing to be a tester, plus I've helped play test on some other games before in the past.

This is brilliant! We had a test server before (not sure if you were around for that) but we had no reward system. I am completely behind this idea--it would get more people playing and testing.

A reward system might be just the thing, then! It may motivate people to play test Paula and rake through some of the content to see if there are any more bugs. It'd be win/win for everyone! You'll receive thorough feedback and play testers will receive a small reward in return for their hard work and dedication. Also, with this kind of event you won't have to worry about exploitation since the bug/technical reports will probably have to be manually reviewed by the staff.

Frankly, I don't care for rewards or anything like that. Imo, just being able to PLAY Paula is a reward.

I would not object to playing on prTO just for funsies, but the question I have is of costs. How much more would it cost to run the prTO game alongside rTO? Is there enough income to fund it? (Would there be enough income in the absence of Drill Event Abuse?)

Restarting from 0? Not doing that, and opening yet another server will divide the TO population even further. Please just implement her into our current server, judging from the bugs, it could be a lot worst. (some skills overpowered, others dont work) seems like it kind of balances it out. 

 

Or maybe in that new server give us all the MS that we have invested? Lets say I have donated 100k MS in rTO server, let us start from fresh in new server with 100k MS. Sure some people will start with a couple million Myshop points, but at least they wont lose all the invested. (For a second time)


Stealing fire from Mt. Olympus like its no big deal.

Sorry for double post.

I guess every one was waiting for Paula and it just never came and so lost interest. Bringing paula back will definitely bring a lot of players back. However, creating another server next to it will destroy rTO.

This is just a test server. 
Not a new server to create new accounts to start everything from the beginning.
It's just to allows you to see where we are on it and to see how many bug we are facing with it actually.
What you don't understand on a "test server" ?

So, I come to you with the question: 

Will you, as a player, be willing to play Paula on a separate server if we had created one, even with all the bugs she has? 

 

You will not be able to play your rTO accounts on this server, so you will have to start fresh. ???

 

 

 Seems like Zen is talking about a new server to start fresh and not a test server (which implies that progress can be lost).

You could move all the characters from rTO to this new server, maybe scanning people's account to see what they have and how much MS was invested on it, I'm pretty sure that I would join this server if my others characters could be transfered too, even with guild bug, we could "get out of the box" and start new friendships and have open sotial relations out of our little world, guilds can isolate groups of people that usually don't talk to outsiders, just with their guildmates, to be honest, there's no reason for guilds in TO, since we don't benefit from contents related to this, like, there's no guild wars or anything like that, GvG isn't appealing as it is on other MMMORPGs, like Ragnarok for example, that have a weekly war that grants special rewards for siege conquerors, access to exclusive dungeons and things like that, GvG here is a more like a hobby that gives you nothing, we should only focus on PvP parties, PvP events, things like that, maybe make a 4th class (just recolor the outfits from 3rd class), customize the server even more than the previous one, make it interesting, since Paula will be the big hype, like a server with just one class, make the other classes more visually appealing,and with new skills (for example, sheep forth class can't wear myushop dress only their unique clothing, a new skill could be same as Staff of Thunder but red instead of blue with higher damage and a debuff atribute, Buffalo 4th could have new single target skill with multiple hits but with even more hits, like a super combo skill, foxes could use dark jutsu magic, dragons could transform in a giant dragon just like Spicy but with different colors, Bunny could have like a super dash that hit many foes in an area, like running from target to target like a lightning bolt, exploding in contact with them, Lions could have a passive skill that could block enemies attacks with high chances I don't know, making them a threat in PvP, raccoons could use ALL skills in meta form, and get crazy speed movement and cats too, like, transformation will be more overpower than ever! you could even use their meta sprites to represent the new class, like they changed for ever and turned into perma monsters! (recolored to make them different from the normal meta state, maybe reddish racoon monster and black cat monster) These ar ejust some opinions, would be wonderful to customize the server totally, introducing new stuff just using what we have but changing a little bit.
